Jolin Finuber was found at an early
a j 11
boor Sunday morning on the sidewalk
on Winterstcen Hill, only a few blocks
fr&m his home, having breathed his last
only a few hours before. Mr. Finisher
was an old citizen of Plattsuiouth and
was married to the widow Fiony, who
at one time kept house for the noted
French trader, Peter A. Sarpy. Mrs. F,
got a divorce from Mr. Finihher some
years ago, but his two daughters kept
house for him for a time. The coroner
impaneled.a jury, and held an inquet
yesterday over the body of the deceased.
It was li arned that he started home about
ten o'clock Saturday night very drunk,
and that he laid down on the sidewalk,
where he remained all night,, dying from
Xpofure or poison whiskey. The jury
failed it exposure.

An Old 3etUer Cone.
The old friends of George Walradt
Will be pained to learn of his death at
bis home near Cedtr Creak yesterday
morning. Mr. Walradt was one of the
'pioneers of Cubs county, settling on the
farm where he died, in the early fifties.
He was a most estimable citizen, respect-
ed bv bis neighbors: a man of iron con-
stitution and indomitable energy, he
shrank from no exposure and for years
durin? the hard times known to earlvset'
tiers, he thought nothing of putting in
fifteen and eighteen hours out of the
twenty-four at hard labor, clearing and
cultivating his claim and building a com
fortable borne for his growing family.
It was from the effect of these early pri-
rations and hardships that he contracted I
the disease, which as he grew older sap
ped his strength and cat down the strong
man who otherwise might have yet lived
for years. Mr. Walradt was a loyal law
abiding citizen and christian gentleman,
and it is by the courage and energy of
such men that the settlement of this west
ern country was made possible. Mr. Wal-
radt will long be missed by the people of
bis neighborhood, and bv the family he
leaves to mourn his los3. The funeral

We say let the bounty remain two years

i3 supposed to be an attempt to poison
yesterday. He received through the
United States mail a pint of whiskev
which he belie red to have been sent him
by a friend. He drank a part of it and
soon took sick. Medical aid was sum
moned and he is now out of danger.
The eymptDms were those of strychnine

the liquid were also made sick, but by
prompt use of emetics soon recovered.

removed. Four men were always on
duty and relays came on every three
hours. One man was stationed at the
death chamber while the others stood
guard in the hall below. Towards noon
callers began to arrive at the house. It
would be difficult to number the friends
who have called during the past few days

Gens. Howard and Slocum met at the
late general's home at noon with many
other military men to perfect arrange
