We will venture the remark that the
laziest mule in all Nebraska has turned
ap in Rock Bluff. No one knows whose
it is or where it came from, but it is of
sorrel color, a mare mule, and has on a
halter. Several boys have tried their
hand at riding this mule and if they have
eyer succeded in getting it to move faster
than a slow walk we have never heard
of it. This mule is living off of the fat
of the land in corn fields and gardens.
But it is too lazy for any one to think of
working it to pay for its keeping. If
the owner will come and get it we will
not ask him to prove property or pay any
bills, but we will feel very thankf uL

conclave and interstate reunion to be

for the reunion and the same will be
decorated in proper 6tyle.
The business men will pleae keep in
mind that last year the reunion at Mal
vern, Iowa brought together over five
thousand odd fellows and their friends.
The best orators in the state will be pres
ent both days during the reunion.
Child-Detricht. At the court hou.se,
July 2:;rd, 1.)0, at 10 o'clock a. m., Mr.
Michael P. Child and Mrs. Hellen Dt-it-richt
were joined in matrimony. Judge
Rev. II. L. Chapman, pastor of the M.
E. church, Johnstown, Pa., says: "Soon
after the great flood, at a time when di
arrhoea was nuite prevalent, I received a
box of six dozen Chamberlain's Colic.
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. As soon
as it became known that I had the medi
cine for free distribution, there began a
great run on it, which continued until it
was about all gone. Every one, so far as
I heard from them, testified to its virtues,
declaring it the be6t medicine for the
purpose they had ever used. Those who
got it shared it around with their neigh
bors, so that I am confident it was pro
ductive of great good. We used some of
it ourselves and found it not only an ex
cellent medicine for diarrhoea, but for
all kinds of pain and uneasiness in the
stomach and bowels. It has been regard
ed as the best medicine known here for
the diseases it is recommended. For sale

Bank Robbery at Weepingr Water.
The Commercial Bank of Weeping
Water was entered last night by robbers
and the vault bored into and opened,
and $1,000 in stamps taken, and $100 in
currency. County Clerk Critchfield re
ceived the news by telephone. It was
also stated that Dave Woodard, the street
marshal was gagged. There were three
wheel-of-fortune men doing the town
yesterday and suspicion points to them
as being the robbers. 8. W. Orton, of
Weeping Water, is in the city, and says
he left that city at 4 o'clock this morn
ing and had heard nothing of the rob
bery. He also Btates that when he enter
ed the Mo. Pac. train at Weeping Water
there were three men aboard that ans
wer the description of the robbers, and
that they went to Omaha after which he
again saw one of tne three on the K. C.
and made inquiries of the conductor how
long he would have to 6top over at St.
Joe, and also as to the connection of
trains at Kansas City to some town north
east of Kansas City, the name of which
Mr. Orton could not catch . Mr. Critch
field was not informed how the entrance
was made int. the building, but it must
have been through the front door or

I wonder why the correspondent from
MethodUt Ridge don't L'ive his name
I wonder who is mistaken, Franci
Murphy or Edward Rosewater, about
Mr. Lincoln. Murphy said he never
drunk a dron. Rnnewuter Maid. ''I have
drank with him."
Mr. Murphy presented him as a total
abstainer and urged those who would bo
great and good to follow his example
Mr. Rosewater presented him as a
"tippler" and would urge those who
would be reat and good to follow his
I wonder if Mr. Rosewater thinks it is
better to "tipple" than to abstaiu.
I wonder if the Bankers' and Business
Meu's Association believe that a man
who drinks will prosper better and will
accumulate more wealth than a man
I wonder if they would seek to perpe
tuate a business that they don't patro
nise. I wonder if they will urge their fam
ilies and neighbors to patronize the
saloons in order to prosper the city and
I wonder if they think that sobriety,
purity and righteousness are destructive
to wealth and prosperity.
I wonder if they think that drunken
ness, licentiousness and woe are produc
tive of wealth and prosperity.
I wonder if they think that twenty sa
loons would help Plattsmouth, and add
something to its future glory.
I wonder if by a few more meetings
and a little personal work, if those who
drink could not be persuaded to drink a
little more, and some who do not drink
influenced to begin, that we might be
able to support twenty saloons instead
of ten and by that means grow rich and
I wonder if an individual prospers
better when he quits drinking if a city
I wonder if it is the real benefits of
the saloon or the license money they plead
I wonder if the license money helps
the poor or the rich.

Pronounced Hopeless yet Saved
From a letter written by Mrs Ada K.
Hurd. of Groton, S. D. we quote: '-was
taken with a bad cold which settled on
my lungs, cough set in and finally termi
nated into consumption. Four doctors
gave me up saying 1 could live but a
6hort time. I gave myself up to my Sav
ior, detetmined that if I could not stay
with my friends on earth I would meet
my absent above. My husband was ad
vised to get Dr. Kings New Discovery
for consumption, coughs and colds. I
gave it a trial, took in all 8 bottles: it
has cured me and thank God I am now a
well and hearty woman." Trial bottles
free at F. G. Fricke &'Co. Druggist, reg
ular nine 50c and $1.00. 4

B. St M. Shop Notes.
The men in the hammer shop resumed
their nsual work this morning after re
pairing their boiler for two days.
Mr. George Thomas says he is well
pleased with the manner in which the
work on his new residence near the pow
er house is progressing.
Some of the boys have been attending
the Salvation Band meetings and com
menting freely upon them. Some think
it novel, some comic, while some think
real good is being done. The reporter
hopes that lasting good is being done,
and that those who make a profession
there may prove as faithful as those
making profession elsewhere.
Don't forget the South Park Hun.Iay
school picnic tomorrow. Everybody in
vited who wishes to spend a plcasant.xTt;
An extensive rustic table will be spread
to satiate the appetite at the dinner hour,
and the shop boy9 who cannot spend the
day, are especially inyited up to dinner.
A drunk driver and a blind team of
horses were not destined to have smooth
sailing last evening; for as such an out
fit drove in on Third street by the can
ning factory, the driver sat stock still in
his wagon with lines in hand, and three
other fellows in about the same maudlin
state of drunkenness, and permitted the
blind team to walk right over a wall and
go lumbering down an embankment of
four or five feet striking heads first
against Mr. Hubbell's house shattering
the window panes, for one of the horse
struck center one of the windows with
his head. A bystander remarked that it
was feeding time and the horses were
going in for their oats.
A special in Tuesday evening's Call
says, "The Omaha Republican has been
sold to a syndicate and will run in the
interests of Russell A. Alger, for presi
