A party of singers were out doing
the serenade act on Monday night. The
people within a block were all enjoying
the melodious strains until a gentleman
on a balcony immediately above the par
ty extended his head far enough over the
side to be discovered by one of the sing
ers who immediately took up an obligato
eolo in which there were about a dozen
demisemiquavers and in an excited man
ner commenced to sing "Water, water,
water, oh, look out for water." The solo
was not accompanied as it should have
been and the harmonious crowd took a
sudden leave while the man on the bal
cony tried to explain that he did not in

A two-year-child of Mr. Jake Stulls
metjts death in a shocking manner yester
day afternoon. The little girl's motner
had been in the habit of hanging a pail of
milk in the well each day and occasion
ally the child would watch her while in
the act. l eslerdav the child wanted a
drink of milk and went the well, un
noticed by the mother, and removed the
covering from over the top. In tryin
to pull the pail up, she lost her
balance and fell into the well, a distance
of eiehteen feet. It is thought she was
killed by the fall. The mother was al
most frantic with grief when she dis
covered her child and could get any as
sistance short of a mile and a half. They
live on what is known as the Id Miller
place near Oreapolis.
Two of our popular young men who
arc generally possessed of a humorous
turn of mind and who, when the public
is not convenient to receive their jkes,
hammer away at each other. The two
fellows were standing on a corner the
other evening with their heads together,
agreed among themselves to rest on
humor for a short time and look into the
future with a broad view. Matrimony,
f course, was introduced, among the
many subjects, when the following re
mark broke Irom the lips ot the more
amerous one: l'ete, why aon t you get
married and settle down ?" "Settle
down !" says Pete, "it keeps me a hust
ling all week to get money enough to
settle up."
A remarkable sensation occurred in
this city of the Platte within the last few-
days in which one of our brave boys was
about oyercome with the scare it afforded
him. The young man takes his meals
and rooms at a house on Oak street. In
his absence one evening some of his
friends quietly made it up among them
selves to put up a job on the fellow,
more to test his staying qualities than for
any other reasou, as he excels as a boaster.
A dummy woman was dressed up and
put in his bed to await his arrival. The
amused crowd waited for him until a
late hour when at last he put in an ap
pearance. He sat contented on the edge
of his lied making preparations for retir
ing. The window-blind waB fastened
back so that he could easily discern any
object in his room. When he was about
prepared to emerge himself and close his
peepers for the night, he was startled to
observe the streaming tresses and bright
fice of a woman. He never Cott-on, and
in an excited state of mind rushed from
his room, inquiring for a match. None
of his friends in any of the up-stairs
rooms could find a match for him. lie
then passed swiftly down the stairs and
rapped on the door of his landlord's
room, exclaiming: "Mr. a : jir,
A ! Have you got a match! What
woman is in my room? If you put any
body in my room I want to know who it
He insisted on Mr. A accom
panying him to the room. The landlord
opened the door and walked in, followed
by the terrified one. When the fellow
looked over the shoulder of his landlord
and discovered the truth, the relief and
surprise coming in contact on his nature
about foundered him. He has threatened
to leaye town it the boys would expose
the hoax.

latter carried a lantern in his hand and
had just stepped out trom some cars
which he had coupled when Callicut
greeted him with various flowery names
which Shott would not accept. As
soon as the striker concluded his
speech, Shott swung his lantern with
considerable velocity against his cranium
inflicting an ugly wound. This morn
ing Shott was arrested and fined $5 and
costs, amounting to over $10 in all.
Shott paid his fine and reciprocated by
procuring a warrant for Callicut charg
ing him with using insulting language
and calling several disagreeable names
He was also fined to the same extent.

A House for the Habitual Drunkard.
To our knowledge this subject has
never before been introduced to the pub
lic, and for what reason we know not, and
cannot refrain from expressing surprise,
when the daily demand for such a place
must leave an impression on the minds
of all who may walk tho streets and wit
ness the degraded state of humanity in
some cases.
Men, young and old, who have, by in
cessant indulgence in taking too freely
such an erroneous stop, habituated them
selves to the evils of liquor?, and are now
unable to take care of themselves, are
left uncared for by many who are direct
ly interested in their welfare because of
their evil habit. Such men still retain a
chance down in their breasts which would,
if an opportunity was afforded when
these men are made aware of their w reck
lessness, be taken advantage of and they
would still be men and come to the front
as respectable people. As long as they
are left to themselves and so many temp
tations arc daily set before them, they
will never take advantage of that oppor
tunity. When the people of this country
realize tho fact that they can still do
something for their friends when in such
a state of helplessness, they will be more
egre to give an assisting hand and help
in the good we are about to speak of.
The citizens of Plattsmouth, or any oth
er burg, who are directly interested,
should petition the men who represent us
at the capitol, to build houses or work
houses in certain parts where those men
could be kept and employed. When
a man would apparently become so help
less that he would become of no use to
himself or anyone else, that is where he
should go if the proper authorities, after
being satisfied with an examination,
should think it a proper place to send
If those men who arc now only moder
ate drinkers would think of the place as
their future home, they would certainly
use a little more precaution than any of
them do at present. When the men
would be confined at such a house for a
long enough time to satisfy the author
ties that they could refuse a drink when
offered to them, they should be set free
Such a place would certainly benefit
not only the man and his family, but the
whole community.
Why not some interested person urge
the matter ?

Thi e are no shadows where there la no sun ;
There is no beauty where there is no bhadd;
And all thing3 in two lines of glory run.
Darkness and light, ebon and gold inlaid,
Sod comes among us through the shrouds of air;
And His dim track is like the silvery walcn
Left by yon pinnance onthe mountain lake,
Fading and reappearing here and there.
The lamps and veils through heav'n and earth
that move.
Go iu and out, as jealous of their light.
Lake sailing stars upon a misty night.
Death is the shade of coining life: and love
Yearns for her dear ones in the holy tomb,
Because bright things are better seen in gloom.

If you desire to possess a beautiful

this month.
Away from my loved hills, away from all
That is most dear to my unhappy 60ul,
I go In sadness. Nor can I control
My anxious thoughts, cor check the tears that
Vain is that pale delusion which we call
Philosophy. It uever can console
The heart's distress, nor lighter make the dole
For fortune's woundings, be they great or small.
Yet, be it only some new grief to find.
Or to bring back some dear reward of pain,
The trial shall be made. Not all In vain
ghaii be the patient battle of the mind.
And though I know not what the days will bring,
In hope I gird me for my journeying.
