Sile Clements, an old resident of
this county in the vicinity of Ruck
Bluffs, but now a prosperous real
estate dealer of Beaver City, traded
what he claimed to be a valuable
piece of timber land consisting of
100 acres near Peoria, 111., to Ballon
Brothers for five good residence
properties in this city. The deeds
were not passed but contracts were
signed up good and solid. In the
meantime Mr. Ballou, who had
never seen the land in question,
sent L. K. Skinner to look at it
before transfer was made. Mr.
Skinner went, and on his return re
ported that only ten acres of the
entire quarter would raise anything
except frogs and mosquitos, conse
quently the laud was declared
practically worthless, laying under
water the year around. Yester
day suit was brought in the dis
trict court to set aside the contract of
sale entered into, on the part of the
Ballou Brother who prefer Platts
mouth real estate to Illinois swamp.

The clothing store of Joe Klein
and the grocery store of Rasmus
Petersen were burglarized last
night. Kntrance was obtained as in
recent burglaries by breaking the
glass near the window fastening
and then raising the window.
Mr. Petersen's losses consisted of
a gold watch, cigars, etc., to the
amount of $50 or $75. The thieves
took a lunch of sardines and
crackers and seemed to feel at
Mr. Klein's losses will run con
siderably over 100. Silk shirts,
ties, umbrellas and clothing was
their principal haul. Mr. Klein
says he was down town about mid
night and noticed the night
policeman sound asleep in front
of the Perkins house. It is little
wonder robberies occur if the
police sleep on their posts.

Fifth street south of Main is very
steep and at best is not a very pass
able thoroughfare. Recently, how
ever, the street has been filled full
of holes by haulers of dirt until it is
now in dangerous condition. The
authorities should level off the street
without delay before the city is bur
dened with another damage suit.
Another brute, a B. & M, black
smith residing in South Park, has
distinguished himself by shame

coward would lift his hand against

his neighbors fail to pitch him in
the Missouri river the authorities
ovight to take a hand and teach the
villain a lessoti.
Colonel Jasper Young, the king
bee of the bee men of this county,
made THE HERALD a pleasnnt call
this morning and left a sample of
his sweets that was duly appreciat
ed. The Colonel has nearly a hun
dred stands of Italian bees and ex
pects to harvest over 4,0C3 pounds
of choice honey. He says the
weather has been too wet for the
bees so that they have not made so
much honey as common but the
quality is excellent.
Proof of the Earth's Motion
Take a good sized bowl, fill it nfca-f
full of water and place it upon the fl(5or
of the room which is not exposed to
shaking or jarring from the street.
Sprinkle over the surface of the water &
coating of lycopodium powder a white
substance which is sometimes used by
ladies in making their toilet, and which
can be purchased of any druggist. Next
upon the surface of this coating of white
powder make with powdered charcoal a
straight black line, say an inch or two in
length. Having made this little black
mark on the surface of the. contents of
the bowl, lay down upon the floor close
to the bowl a stick or some other straight
object, so that it will lie exactly parallel
with the charcoal mark. If the line
happens to be parallel with a crack in
the floor or with any stationary object in
the room this will serve as welL
Leave the bowl undisturbed for a few
hours, and then observe the position of
the black mark with reference to the ob
ject it was parallel with. It will be
found to have moved about, and to have
shifted its position from east to west
that is to say, in that direction opposite
to that of the movement of the earth
upon its axis. The earth in 6imply re
volving has carried the water and every
thing else in the bowl around with it,
but the powder upon the surface has been
left behind a little. The line will always
be found to have moved from east to
west, which is perfectly good proof that
evervthinff else contained i-n tho bowl
has moved the other way. St. Louis I
The Electiou of Governor
Considerable has been said in the
newspapers throughout the state in
regard to whether or not a govern
or should be elected thin fall.
1 The leading attorneys all over
Nebraska have been interviewed
and they differ in their opinions as
to whether the election would be le
gal. Hon. John C. Watson, the chair
man of the republican state repub
lican central committee-, was asked
by a Press man yesterday for his
opinion in the matter.
"At first," said Mr. Watson. "I was
of the opinion that John M.Thaytr
could legally hold over, but since
careful?- reading up on the law,
and couneiling with the leading
lawyers I am satisfied that it will be
perfectly proper to go ahead and
elect a governor this fall."
A not her gen t lema n who is promi
nent in polities and thoroughly
posted said: 'This governor busi
ness is now in the hands of the at
torney general of the state and
whatever he opines will settle the
legal end of the business. From
what I can learn the public senti
ment is that a governor should be
Mr. Watson said he would soon
call a meeting of the state commit
tee and then the matter could be
thoroughly discussed as to whether
or not the office of governor should
be inserted in thecal!. He has re
ceived a large number of letters
from all portions of the state in re
gard to the-governorship, but will
now wait until an opinion is
handed down by the attorney gen
eral. A great many people arc
anxious to know what will be done.
If we are to have a gubernatorial
election this fall the people should
know it, and the authorities who
can should decide the question.
Another well posted attorney
said: "This fall we hold a general
election, and our statutes read very
plainly that the governor shall be
chosen at a general election. Why
not let that be this fall?"
If a governor is to be elected this
fall the peopie should know of the
fact early in the campaign. Mr.
Watson will no doubt call a meeting
of the- central committee in the
near future. Nebraska City Press.
The Herald seriously doubts
the advisability of attempting to
run n candidate for governor this
fall. In the first place, it does not
seem necessary to enter the contest
and give up the certainty of
holding the office another year for
the uncertainty of an exciting con
test. Outside of what is known as
the "Boyd Republicans" we have
found no one who believed an
election this fall of a governor was
legally required. If there is a
great howl among republicans for
an election, let us have the names
of the aforesaid howlers, and see if
there is not something behind the
