Some villain out west stole a
horse, but not content with that he
gave his name as Tom Hicks, much
to the discomfiture of our Tom who
is being queered; by the boys
asking him what he done with the
horse and how he got away. It is
needless to say that our Tom Hicks
wasn't in it.

of the G. A. R. which meets in
Detroit the first of August. The
badges are all hand-painted, on

that they will be the finest lot of
badges at the encampment.

Richard Billstine proprietor of
the meat market in the Neville
block on Sixth street was the latest
victim of burglars last night. I-Cn-trance
was effected sometime dur
ing the night alter half past ten
o'clock by tearing h wire screen otf
the frame in a rear window.
Mr. Billstine was at his place of
business about six o'clock and soon
noticed his losses, which consisted
of about ten gallons of lard, several
boxes of surdities, mustard pickles
and some hams.
He also noticed that an attempt
had been made to open his safe
which had proved futile. He was
informed by a neighbor that a pack
age of what looked like meat was
laying out l.a.k near the smoke
house. On investigation the pack
age proved to be one of meat which
Mr. Billstine had given to Tom
Henderson about nine o'clock last
evening. Following up the clue Mr
Billstine had a search warrant is
sued and Henderson was arrested
up town , on his way home he con
fessed the crime ami gave up all
the goods which could be found.
As only about half that
was taken has been recov
ered the idea seems prevalent that
he had a partner in the job though
he denies having an accessory in
any way and claims that he has re
turned all the goods that were
taken. He now languishes in jail
awaiting a preliminary hearing.
The officers have searched several
places but nothing further has yet
been found. ,
Henderson is a stout, hearty ap
pearing man, and three or four
years ago was working here for the
company. He afterwards was made
seclio i forem iii at GentTi on
the B. & M., but being of a quarrel
some disposition and somewhat ad
dicted to drink he got into trouble
which finally resulted in his dis
charge. He then moved back here
six or eight months ago and has
not been very successful in se
curing employment or very steady
in his habits. His wife is spoken of
as being a perfect lady, whose sen
sitive nature will be severely
shoeked by this latest escapade of
her husband, which will send him
to the penitentiary. They have
three or four little children.
h i m
derson has alwaS borne a
reputation for integrity,
when the officer asked
what ever possessed
to attempt such a thing he cheer
lessly remarked that he had b en in
hell for the last six months and
there could be nothing worse in
store for him. The family resides
somewhere over about the shops;
and kind neighbors should see that
they are not in actual want for
something to eat.
McCourt's "Stiff "
Sixth street, in front of the Union
block, has long since been a dis
grace to the city owing to its con
stant muddy condition along the
west side on account ot the
drainage for an entire block
running through it. Lastnight
some of the disgusted mer
chants in that vicinity fixed up a
straw man, by the aid of an old pair
ot pants boots and socks, which
they planted out in front giving it
the appearance of a man that had
fallen in the mud and was unable
ty get up. Major McCourt or some
other wag sprinkled a little sugar
about the "stiff" which lured the
flies, making a very ghastly look
ing object this morning when Coro
ner Unruh was called over to in
vestigate. Visions of another in
quest lightened up the countenance
of the urbane coroner as he hasten
ed over and glanced atthe 'Hoodoo'
from a cross the street. On reach
ing the scene of the "disaster"
he was about to make an
effort to pull the man out. when a
placard, "No Fishing on These
Premises," attracted his attention,
and it suddenly dawned on him
that the whole thing was a fake, as
he retreated in good order amidst
the hearty laughter of the crovM.
Under the new law the county
commissioners nereatter will be
elected in all counties having less
than 70.0CD inhabitants bv districts.
In other words, this fall the whole

elects, and that will be Plattsmouth
City andjprecinct alone. This is
quite ait innovation. Frank White
said the bill never passed but it is
