Au express packa addressed to I'. C.
Minor, Omaha, containing $15,000, with
$0.1 express charges, came in on a train
from the south today. It was sent from
New Orleans, and was one-twentieth of
the capital prize of $300,000. Mr. Minor
has kept his good fortune a secret, and
many conjectures have been made as to
who the lucky party is. Ticket 56,021
drew the prize, and was held by some
one in Plattsmouth, which the prize list
confirmed. The ticket was held by P
C. Minor, of the Burlington & Missouri
supply department, and was probably
purchased by him for a youug lady friend

HARRISON S SOUTHERN POLICY
A Communication to the Editor of
a South Carolina Paper
Gkkknvii.i.i:, S. C, Nov. 27. The
Greenville Daily News yesterday printed
a letter recently received by its editor
from General Harrison, and published by
his permission. It was written in reply
to a letter urging that the southern com
mercial interests would be relieved from
the obstruction caused by doubts and
fears regarding the southern policy of
the coming administration of General
Harrison, and nsked that he make some
general as.surat.ces of his purposo to fol
low a conservative course towards the
south. After stating that he was not
ready to make any public utterances on a
public (lUistion, General Harrison said:
" I understand that you have yourself
been satisfied with the expressions made
by me in my public utterances to yisiting
delegations during the campaign. When
the surprise and disappointment which
sonic of your people have felt over the
result has passed away, and they give
some calm thought to thd situation, I
think they will be as much surprised as I
am that thev should in thought or speech,

It is almost certain now that when the
recount is made and the decision of the
courts rendered, the electoral vote of both
Virginia and West Virginia will be cast
for Harrison. The fraud business has
gone far enough, and Chairman Quay

Under the Hat, or the Terrors of
It was on a calm bright morning at the
close of November l&Wi, that a peaceful
farmer on the banks of the romantic
riatte.'that minature rivcr.which irrigates
one of the loveliest parts of Cass county,
became the scene of an excitement unus
ual to the locality in which it occurred,
and quite foreign to the homely and un
warlike dispositions of the dwellers in
that secluded and hitherto undisturbed
region. The time had been, when the
lowing of cattle, the quacking of ducks,
or the sound of the busy fl:.il, threshing
the grain, were the only noises which oc
curred to break the calm repose which
brooded o'er its banks; but a sudden
change came over that region when Capt.
W. D. Jones, Col. Ammi Todd, Lieut.
Jessie Richey and private in the rear
rank O. P. Smith, entered that lonely
spot rlalled Cedar Island after a hard
tussle with a tugboat which they dragged
for a full half mile hunting for water to
reach that lonely spot which is inhabited
only with bears, wild cats and deer. At
the sound of our iron nerve Capt. Jones'
voice, the onler was given to fall in line
like rows of corn, and to shoot nothing
but the pure and innocent deer, and to let
wild catg.bears and all other game pass us
all unhurt, and when the sound of our
trusty guns was heard we could distin
guish what game had been the victim of
our well tried guns. One would think to
see us as we crept through the bush and
bramble.that Spotted Tail or Sitting Bull
was in our civilized country. After
weariug out the knees of our pants and
scratching our eyes almost out, we
reached the end of that lonely spot. Not
a shot was fired, not a life was lost; but
our company was somewhat disfigured.
As we emerged from the brush we heard
our captain's voice, which told us of a
discovery he had made. It was the last
resting place of a deer or Barnum's
horned horse. As we tracked the animal
across the rippling stream, we could al
most smell venison frying. Our captain
who was leading the van came to a stop
in the middle of the stream--his eye
caught sight of the supposed deer. As
it was a long range shot he called his
high private from the rear rank who car
ried one of those good old Winchesters,
the bullets of which was soaked in salt
water in order that the game might not
spoil before w-s reached the fatal spot;
but. before the deadly shot was fired, our
captain made out the supposed deer to
be the frame work of a well developed
cow, whose life was spared on account
of its docility. To give a full hLstory of
our hunt and the hardships we encoun
tered would be impossible to imagine,
suffice to say it was a.blood-curdliug ex
perience. We at last reached home with
a solemn yow to place our guns in a sec
ond hand store for sale. Parties who
wi-h to make up a deer hunt can gain
t-ome very valuable information of Col.
Tmlii. providing they will keep it under!
their h it. To be continued iu the next
annti il hunt. Yours under the hut.
Anarchist Sunday Schools
CincA'Jo. Nov. 2"t. The executive
committee of the newly organized local
anarchist society, known as the Arbeiter
Bund, his issued a circular calling a large
mass meeting next Sund iv for thn pur
poso of deyising means by which to
found anarchist schools for children
throughout the city. 1 he circular was
freely distributed today. It invites all
anarchists to investigate the society's
Sunday schools, of which there are six in
Chicago, er.ch located in the rear or
in the basement of saloons. One of the
schools, in the back room of Hichan
brother's saloon, at Lincoln avenue and
Halste 1 street, was found to contain this
afternoon 120 children, ranging from
five to fourteen years of ago, seated on
long benches, listening Intently to what
a teacher was explaining to them about
Johann Most. The teacher told the
children that Spies and Parsons had been
murdered by the capitalists, and referred
to the dead anarchists as martyrs.

"Oh, no; you make a great mistake.

There are many white soaps, each represented to be "Just as good as the 'Ivory j"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
