The stupidity of partisan politics seems
to be thorougly exemplified by the World
Herald these days. With an option
-.1. uic r at the head of the democratic
ticket, whose principal recommendation
with his party was his supposed boodle,
and a banker running on the same ticket
for the very important office of state
treasurer, that paper launches forth 'n
its campaign against Mr. Richfl-ds, the
republican candidate for governor, with
the charge that he ia a capitalist and
banker, therefore, unfit to be trusted by
the people. The low estimate the Worid
Herald places ujror the L.tcllig'Trc -f

its own shallow inciicerity.

much of the sculpture of r-rient Athens
was originally painted in bright coiois.
Until recently archaeologists ma:nta: -cd
the theory that the refined art of the
Greeks had foend its expression the
pure form of the marble, disregarding
color; and any evidence to the contrary
were destroyed, as only givng rie to
troublesome theories, subyersiye of the
trne worship of Greek art. With'n the
past few years, however, several interes
ting pieces of painted sculpture have
been discoyered which have given rise to
some interesting speculations among sta
dents and artists. Harper's Magazine
for September will contain an article by
PLATTSMOUTH, CASS COUNTY, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY.
Ruel Sturgis describing several of the
most imporUnt of these discoyeries,
which he declares to be "the most curi
ous, the most seperate, the most unexpec
ted" body of fine art that could possibly
have been found. The article will be
finely illustrated from photographs and
from drawings made in Athens.
An Old Citizen.
From Wednesdays Daily.
The Bee of yesterday records the death
of a prominent capitalist of Omaha, in
the person of S. W. Spratlen. Old cit
zens here will remember Mr . Spratlen as
a successful merchant at Rock, Bluffs,
where he was associated with 8. R. John
son until ' 1867, when thej moved
away soon after locating in
Omaha, where both acquired a
competency. Mr. Spratlen's fhst wife
was a sister of Frank Kauble and Mrs. C.
M. Holmes, of this city. Mr. Spratlen
was for many years ' a member of the
wholesale grocery firm of D. M. Steele &
Co., but latterly his time was wholly oc
cupied looking after his financial affairs,
he having at all times large sums of
money on interest, being peculiar in that
regard He went through all of Omaha's
booms but never bought any real estate.
Frank Laiabert, of Rock Bluffs, it will
be remembered secured a back pen-" on
to the amount of $1,600 two years ago
and was 5 laced on the pension rolls at
$30 per month. Last November he, at
the instigation of a married daughter,
in Kentucky, deserted his wife and two
children, who are both imbeciles fid
joined hia daughter in Cattlesburg,, she
figuring to get the use of his money; the
county ever since has been compelled to
provide for thepoor woman' who was
left entirely destitute. - Yesterday word
was received that Mr. Lambert had been
run over by a locomotive and killed so
that hereafter the widow -will draw the

A Serious Charfrs.
The Omaha World-Herald has the fal

here, ' who wll hope thit he may
thoroughly disprove the cbs'ges:
"A complaint was filtrt tit pcrco head

Hayes, for seventeen yt&rs ynrdmn-stcr ox
the Burlington & ili.soun railn.-.;d in fhi.-'
city, with obtaiainft taaa-.-y tm-ier l.iiicc
pretenses. The complaint alleges that Hayes car
ried a dummy on the pay rolls in the
name of 'T. Dinan.' The name was fic
titious, and when the car came in Thomas
Delaney, an employe of the Missouri
Pacific raiload, drew the check, Hayes
appearing to identify him as the 'T. Din
an' whose name was on the pay roll.
Delaney would then get the check cashed
and recieve $10 of the proceeds as lii
part of the scheme.
The scheme is -alleged to haye been in
operation for about five months, an
the entire amount of which the company
has been defrauded is placed at not far
Delaney recently gave the whole snap
away. The legal action was at once
taken against Hayes, but Delaney will
net be prosecuted.
Hayes received an intimation that some
thing was wring from a friend who is
employed by the company. lie said that
the company had been holding back his
pay and he suspected that something was
in the wind. He said, however, that
whatever it was, there vas notni-ig in it
and threatened he would give the com
