' The clerks of the mechanical depart
ment and 'he clerks of the sirply de
partment of the B. ifc M., had their game
last Saturday afternoon on the ball
ground at "Fitz's Forty.
The game opened at 5 o'clock, both
vlnbs agreeing to play but five innings.
It was the hotest game we have seen
jlayed in the city, on account of the run
ning the players were obliged to do. The
principal feature of the game was the
large number of home runs made.
Several of the players had never played
iifcn game before, and one or two had
never seen a game played, but still, the
same players brought in one or two
home runs. Although they were not
all experts, yet ther worked to th
best of their ability and Avith consider

Well, wo know "ye editors" have lots

The Mills bill passed the House under
the spur of the caucus lash. Doughface
demotratic members of congress from the
north eat dirt, as was their want in slav
ery days and supported a bill which
struck at the highest interests of their
localities, simply because it was the will
of the solid ioiit li. The bill was hatched
in a closet; the republican n:e:;;bers of the
committee of Ways and Means were de
nied even the courtesy of consultation.
The meaui-e was not even discussed in
committee; but a national majority in
secret caucus planned and brottgl.t to
light the measure which was crammed
down the democratic throat despite the
entreaties of northern democrats, who
were contemptously treated, 3? in days
when the slave lash cracked in the hails
of the American congress. But, the old
southern spirit was manifested iu a strik
ing manner in the muLep of the bill; rice
and sugar, staple products of Use .Liih,
were not touched in the sweeping reduc
tion made on "home products." Why?
because tLe brigadiers from Louisiana
andCaiolina would uoi permit it. King
caucus was supreme, only for the north
ern doughface however. Wool was
placed on the free list because the Eng
lish manufacturer and the importer de
manded It aad the south was not injured.
Kice aud sugar was kept on ilie protected
list, under a high schedule, because a
southern constituancy demanded it.
Now the question is how will the free
north take tins direct sectional slap in
the. face. No matter what northern
man's views may be, it strikes us, there
;i cowardly disposition upon the part of
the northern democracy to surrender the
rights of their section to the arbitrary beck
of the old south which should tdim Jam
and cause him to pause before placing
the industrial interests of this great coun
try at the complete disposal of a political
party ruled by sectional and foreign in
fluanccs. Aud we predict that this,
southern, free trade party, now nu -shed
with victory, will meet a solid northern
force at the November poll which will
say this far you may go and no further.

Puotection builds up home markets.
The farmer of this country is interested
in the transportation question and how
to get to market with his products and
not loose the profits, of the product, in
high freights. Oats a year or so ago was
worth only from FJ to 15 cents per bush
el, the duty was ten cents, yet, who will
have the effrontery to claim that the duty
affected the price; it was principally the
high rates charged to get tletuct to
a distant market. The locality when it
was produced being without tin adequate
home market; hence, the prices ran down.
The same difficulty has b-.-en inet by the
western farmer with his corn product.
The price was totally inadequate to j;ive
him even a small profit after deducting
the cost of producing and harvesting the
corn. Hog chulora swept the country
he could not safely invest in hogs to feed
and the profit on his corn-fed beef went
"a glimm.Ting" w'.th hiyh freights.
The prices have .dmost always been ade
quate to give a living profit, at least, had
it not been for the embargo of high
freights to get to th distant markets of
Chicago and furlh'-r eust. In every local
ity, where a small manufacturing interest
was maintained prices were better; take
Peoria, 111., for instance, the price of real
estate in that v icinity was enhanced and
maintained, in value, away beyond that
of agricultural localities, iu that state,
distant from a home market and this is
always the case. It is a very difficult
thing to do, to make the farmer of the
west understand how free trade is to ben
efit him witli a distant market; the east
has had the benefit iu building up her
manufactures, and now the west, which
produces the bread for the laboring man
of the country desires the hungry inouthes
brought nearer the produc t. It is this
consumer the farmer wants to see in his
midst, with his skilled labor onployctl,
so that lie will have therewith to pur
chase. There! is no danger of over pro
duction if the working men is allowed to
come to the agricultural distiicts and
there receiye his legitimate wages; but,
suppose he is to come to engage in agri
cultural pursuits, what then is the result?
Competition iu agriculture without
markets; that is all and that is ruinous to
the farmer. Our own little home market
in Plattsmouth, maintained by the few
hundred shop employes, has very largely
maintained this city its tradesmen and
citizens. It is the home market illustrat
ed in a small way, to be surer yet, the il
lustration is one every citizen of Platts
mouth can understand The pork pack
ing interests now taking root at Nebraska
City, already, gives a home market, in a
limited degree, to the Nebraska farmer
for I;:3 pork and so do the stock yards of
Lincoln and Omaha yej, y. hat are these
stock markets compared with factories
iu every center of popul itiou in the agri
cultural district to furnish the home con
sumers? if tlieio cny individual, in

Alonzo Stultz, a boy about. 12 years
of age, ar.d ccr. of Mr. Allen Stultz, cre
ated considerable excitement at his home
last Saturday by suddenly taking his de
parture. A train of emigrant wagons
from the cast, bound for Lancaster coun
ty, passed through the city that day and
the b y formed an acquaintance wiiu
some of the travelers. They persuaded
him to leave home and accompany them
by offering him what he thought a liber
al salary aiid a little pony which he ad
mired yery much, and they had alse
promised hiui some land when they
reached their destination. He joiued
them, and the boy's father did not find
out for some time where he had gone,
but discovered in time which road the
emigrants had taken and overtook them
as they were moving slowly along their
way about one mile west of Louisville.
The emigrants were a frightened crowd
when Mr. Stultz let loose on theni and
j submitted to Lini without any, trouble
stating that they had only hired the boy

CHAPTER OX DEAFNESS.
THE EAR A MOST INTRICATE AND
Throat Kt-ufiKs imuI Its Ti ut unlit.
Otlwr Varieties of Complaint Sinking
In the Ham Tho Douf Colonel An I'nj
glisli Physic-Ian' ISuggcKtloun.
It would take a much longer pajx-r tbun I
have space to w rito to describe the anatomy
of thc car and the pathology of the dUTerent
kinds of deafness. It is a mobt intricate
strueture, fearfully and wonderfully made,
ami consisting of tutes external und internal,
a drum, ruusele-s, nerves uud bones of its
own, all lying insiilo ono of tho hardest and
strongest bones of tho human bod-. Thij
l.-itte-r was specially designed by nature to
shield it from blows. It is supplied with nir
by a Ions twlo called the eustachian, opening
into tho back part of tho throat.
This tiibo I mention socially to account
for the fact of people becoming deaf through
bad colds or swelling St the tonsils. Observe
that U10 tar must bo supplied with uir, or
hearing becomes an impossibility. You hear
this air crackling in tho ear when you go
through tho process of swallowing tho uiliva.
Well, if it is closed by tho produetH of in
flammation, or if it bo shut up as to its
mouth hy tho pressure of a swollen tonsil, it
is obvious enough partial or complete deaf
ness will bo tho result for tho timo being.
This is sometimes called throat deafness,
and, like every other form of the complaint,
requires special treatment. It is, iKThnps,
ono of tho commonest, if not tho commonest
kind. If caused by th- pro--.- ;::v of I...- i...;sl.
it is merely mechanical, and tho remedy is
removal of tho cause. When, however, it
is caused by the extension of inflammation
of mucous membrane during a cold, it may
or may not depart with the cold. It would
then have to bo seen to surgically, and tho
passing of a catheter might be necessary, a
simplo but delicate operation which oidy a
professional man could bo trusted to perform.
VARIOUS KI?iDS OF DEAFNESS.
Another very common sjieeies of ueafnes3
is that caused by obstruction of tho externa i
tube of tho our with tar, which may be dis
solved out or syringed out by a practiced
hand, when the euro would bo complete. If
the drum of the ear bo eaten, through by ul
ceration, no ijcrruauent cure is of course to
be expected, but a visit to a clever aurist
may send tho patient home rejoicing never
theless. There are inflammations of various
other portions of tho ear which I need not
mention, all of which cause deafness. There
is also a kind of deafness caused by paralysis
of tho nerves which carry tho impression to
tho brain from the ear.
Many forms of the complaint are accom
panied, esjiecially at the outset, by disagree
able noises in tho organ, or apparently in
that part of tho brain adjoining. It is as if
one were actually listening to the rush of the
blood through tho vessels of tho brain. I am
not suro that it is not so, and that ono cannot
even judge of the state of his circulation by
these sounds alone. Both this same singing
in tho cars may occur in those who are not
doaf, and if it continues long it is well to con
sult your physician, especially if you bo fat
aud plethoric, for it may bo an early sym
tom of apoplexy, or What is called "a
Vv'e often hear ono friend say to another:
"You'ro very deaf today," aud perhaps the
reply is: Well, I am a bit deaf today; 1
vary with the weather." This is a species of
deafness common in tho nervous, and really
arises from debility, consequent perhaps
upon some temporary derangement of tho
digestive organs. IVopla subject thereto
should live carefully and abstemiously. They
should try to live so as to be independent of
the uso of drugs.
BEARING IHrROVED ET NOISE.
I have heard it said that the deaf hear bet
ter when any noise is going on, probably be
cause then other people are talking loudest.
I really believe that is tho true reason. But
my grandfather used to relate an instance of
tho deaf colonel of a regiment wiio was so
convinced of the truth of this opinion that
whenever ho had to corjycrso parade
with any of Lis men or officers, Le used to
Lave the drummer to beat up closo along
side. There is one affection of the car which is
of a very disagreeable kind, tad which
lira mention while- I tinm.-. 01 Jt running
from tlio ear. If the exuding liiatter were
non-offensive it would bo bad enough, but
from being mingled, I suppose, with tho se
cretion of wax it is fetid. The most simplo
form is that occurring in children of a
strumous diathesis, where It proceeds simply
from the outer canal of. tho ear. It is not
then dangercms in itself, and is remediable
by great attention to health and injections of
an astringent and disinfectant nature ap
plied by means of a little syringe.
And pr.v? Ydiat have I to say about the
treatment of deafness? Very little, I fear.
Wero I talking to students it would be differ
ent, but the ear is such a delicate organ that
iu nine cases out of tun meddlesome domestic
surgery makes matters worse. Each casa
must be treated on its own merits, and the
sooner the better simple cases by your own
medical adviser, the more difficult by those
men who make the eac a specialty.
But as prevention is better thm cure, I
may mention that no one should expose his
ears to draughts, especially blizzards; that
tho less interference with tho ear at all times
tho better; for example, picking the ear, or
poking pins or penholders in it, does not con
duce to: contemplation; that wearing cotton
or wool in the ears is a stupid and dangerous
practice, and more Likely to induce cold than
prevent it ; that scrubbing the ear out in the
morning with the corner of the towel is Lad
practice; and finally, that boxing a child oa
the ?ar mav lead to permanent deafness.

usually lasted until 2 in tho afternoon.
Ho wrote in his drawing room, and when tha
French windows were closed no sounds from
tho street could be heard. When once f airly
on the way with a novel ho worked with
rapidity. He wrote with a large pen, with
very black ink, onlargs sheets of drab col

written and thrown on the floor, which, after
a few hours1 writing, was completely covered.

clear copy. Mr. Fteade then went carefully
over it, making improvements by omissions

Hints ill Literary Comi.oKitlon.
In answer to a correspondent, Mr. Philip
O. Hamcrtoii detailed purl iculai-s of his
method of work. Said Mr. llanierton in his
interesting letter; "I think that there ure
two main ouulitiVs to bo kept in view in
literary composition frankness and finish.
Tho best way, in my opinion, of attaining
both is to aim at freshness iu the rough draft,
with little regard to perfeeiion of expression;
the finish can be given by copious subsequent
correction, even to tho extent of writing all
over again when there is time. Whenever
possible, I would assimilate literary to pic
torial execution by treating tho rough draft
as a rapid and vigorous skoHi, without any
regard to delicacy of woikmanship; then I
would writo from this a second work, retain
ing as much as possible liio freshness of the
first, but correcting the oversight ; and errors
which are due to rapidity." Homo Journal.
Dollar Hun! cm Destitute of Humor.
Certain pursuits, certain habits of mind
fond to repress, and finally eradicate humor.
Among these, notably, ;ts has len indicated,
is tho steady pursuit of wealth for wealth's
sake. Any number of rich men m.iy be pos
sessed of humor; but you almost never find a
man whose constant aim is to get money that
has a vestige of the happy quality. He may
have had a fair fund of it in the bo'urning;
but tho concentrat ion of his entire thought
and feeling iu ono direction, and that direc
tion sordid, must cro long extinguish humor
by drying up its springs. To le a humorist,
01:0 must bo accessible to ideas, must give
hospitality to surrounding influences, must
bo related to the wholo wea ld. And when
ono is absorbed in pecuniosity, is shut away
from all the better, more wholesome emana
tions of lt!'o, it is impossible to feel this faint
est throb of humor.

I ilcsire to say a few words b the peo
ple at lai:;i! in leganl the breeding of
horses. Having myself, for tho last :J5
years been cnacd in that business, be
lieving that 1 am competent to give a
fair, unbiased opinion of the best breed
ers. I drove the stallion, Little I'weci hffl,
who took the 1st premium at tlio first
fair cyer held in Dcs Moines, la. I also
owned Mid bred the stallion. Cap Walk
er, Mho was the fust horse to take ti
premium in Cars county and have always
been handling horses for breeding pur
poses. I have handled ami bred Print
ers, Morgans, Copper llottoms, lI:lslioll,
llamiltonians, Clydesdales, Noinions and
others. I have bought and brought to
Cass county, a large number of horses
even be-fore the 1!. A; M. l. K. bad a rail
here and among them were a I'liubr
Stallion, a Copper Ilottom Stallion, four
Norman Stallions, four Clydesdale Stal
lions and others and have bp d nil theso
horsi s at different times. I have bee n
on the horse market for '-.'!) eur.-t and am
by this time, certainly competent. ti
know what horse or breed of horses will
iiii;g lhc most money in this or any
other market and whhh are tho
most valuable to stock raisers,
my opinion is that the Clydesdale iflid
Xoiinan are woitli more money to tlio
breeders and it is based t:po;i this fact,
that a three year old Norman or Clydes
dale draft heu.-x- .i worth and can lie sold
in market for M() to ?00 and the smal
ler horses at the sa.no age v, ill not pos
sibly bring over ,0.
I have sai I this much for the benefit
of breech rs and in explanation, and I
fuither desire to say that we have now n
our stables in I'latlsmoiilh two Clydos
dale and (.r.e Norman horses good clean
big breeders, and with more to follow,
both fo: sale and breeding purposes.

For bridesmaids' hats there is a specially
pretty nouveaute In the form of an open
work Tuscan btraw semi-transparent; hat,
almost resembling Irish crochet of a pale bis
cuit color, lined with pale blue velvet, and
trimmed with wide moire ribbon of tho same
delicate tint. A pretty bonnet for the samo
purpo.se is of drawn lise, in any pale color,
with tullti lightly drawn over and up the
front, where it rises up in conjunction -witli
few loops of ribbon and a feathery o.sprey.
The edge of tLo bonnet is of l:-ad work on
wire, and the tullo is carried over this in
front. The strin;;3 ar3 of ribbon. In palo
pink, with bronzo leals, or in white, with
gold or silver, tho effect is particularly good.
There is a pretty bonnet in drawn black
net, with upstanding jet worked on each rib,
3,-t leaves i.c-aLling i:i net round tho edge,
forming a coronet, and an interlaced bow of
finely plaited crepe de Chino in pale blush
pink. A bronze creie, with strings and brim
of velvet, has twigs of the most natural ap
pearance arranged all over, with a tuft of
them at one side and a bunch of equally
natural looking buttercups. A few butter
cups are carelessly scattc-red over the crown.
Black tullo, drawii over colored net founda
tions, is smartly made up with strings of tha
color of the foundation, fastened at the top
of the bonnet ia a looped knot, and then car
ried down to the sides. Ia front is a cluste
of harmonizing rosea and an upright plait ot
delicate black lace.
