County Ticket.
From Mondtiy'K Iaily.
At ;i little j;iHt 1 o'clock hint Sat
urday th alliance convention was
calk-l together by Mr. Rouse of
Greenwood, and as hooii as order
was established Gov. Todd was
called uiom for a Heecli, which the
"Gov." responded to in his charac
teristic way. His remarks were
well received and elicited several
rounds of applause.
The committee on credentials
then made their report, which was
a very peculiar one indeed. le
Masters was chairman and found
that there were 127 delegates ac
credited to the several wards and
precincts iti the county. No report
was made as to wno me ueiejraies
were, ho that anyone could repre
sent any place he desired.

county, south of Ashland, for nine
years. He is thirty-eiht years old
and hails from Illinois, which is all
that is known of him.
Sam'l. Richardson went in for
treasurer by acclamation, also.
For sheriff, Kcl Dorr, of Wabash,
and Gardiner, of Greenwood, had
quite a tussle, which resulted in
favor of Dorr.
M. O. Weed was nominated for
county superintendent without op
position. II. D. Harr, of Weeping Water,
carried off the honor of a nomina
tion for county judje, and our
democratic friend, John I). Tutt of
this city, carried off the plum for
clerk of the district court; Sam
Galley, of Greenwood, was nomi
nated for coroner.

they are reported much better and
hopes extertained of their recovery.

The citizens of I'lattsmouth may
be pardoned for whatever pride
they have for their ball club. The
Htirlitifftons not only know how to
play ball, but the club is made up
of men who are every inch gentle
men. Murray Banner.
The base ball nine at Nehawka
made a proposition to a picked
nine of this city, to play a game
upon the grounds of the former
Accordingly our boys departed
overianu saiuruuy morning witti a
view of showing the Nehawkas how
to play ball: but untrue to the
agreement, the Nehawkas excused
themselves, much to the dissatis
faction of the I'lattsmouth hoys

.Last evening two of our young
ladies, presumably to have some
innocent sport, departed from the
indulgences usually allotted to
their sex and attempted to outdo
their brothers for once at least.
One of them donned a man's attire,
and assuming the attitude of a
male escort, affectionately and with
apparent ease and grace, conducted
lady No. 2 down the street, when
some of the boys, having an eye to
business and wishing to ascertain
facts in the case, proceeded to in
vestigate, and as a result their curi
osity was gratified. While the
young ladies may have had in
view only some innocent sport, yet
such conduct is wholly unbecoming
and does not keep pace with th
modesty that should characterize
their sex.

Aug 10, 1891.
Board met pursuant to adjourn
ment; full board present, when the
following was done, to wit:
The board considered the matter
of division of Libert3 and Rock
Bluffs precincts, and after due con
sideration it was ordered to divide
Liberty precinct as follows: Be
ginning at half-section corner on
north side of section 3-10-13, running

A Rich Case!
A civil action promising amuse
ment and liable to excite the curi
osity of the Piattsmouth bar is now
pending in Judge Archer's court, in
which Mr. K. G. Vanatta seeks to
collect the sum of $10 from Mr.
Mathew Gering.
It appears that upon the recovery
of a judgment by Mr. Gering
against Kobt. Metteer in the dis
trict court in the late celebrated
libel case of Gering vs. Metteer, Mr
E. G. Vanatta, one of Metteer' s at
torneys, agreed, in consideration of
the payment to him by Mathew
Gering of $20, he, Vanatta, would
induce Metteer to settle and pay up
the judgment recovered by Gering,
That thereupon the judgment was
settled and paid, and Vanatta al
leges that Gering has paid $10 o
the twenty agreed to be paid and
now refuses to pay and settle the
balance hence the suit. We are
not informed just what Mr. Gering' s
defense will be.
Walking leaves and Twig. -
The walking and climbiug leaves of
Australia were for over half a century
considered the reatt-rtt of natural won
ders. A party of sailors wandered inland
and sat dowu to rest under a tree. A
great wind Hliook to earth several dead
and brown leaves These presently be
gan to (ihow siiis of life and crawl to
ward the trunk, whic h they ascended,
and attached themselves to their respec
tive tvis.
Hence the Bailors, who promptly ran
away, said the place was bewitched. But
the simple fact turned out to be that the
so called ''leaves" were really leaf shaped
insects, having lou, pendulous leg3.
which coul 1 be folded out of sight, and
possessing the chameleon like power of
varying their color to correspond with
that of the foliage they are clinging to.
Upon being hhaken to the ground, in
stinct taught them to seek shelter of the
friendly leaves again as soon as possible.
These walking leaves are frequently
found in the woods of Illinois. The
farmers call them "animated twigs," as
they exactly resemble a bit of the tree.
They are green when the trees are green,
but as soon as the foliage changes they
become brown The writer of this was
sitting under a tree reading in the woods
of southern Illinois when one of these
"twigs," as it was Bupposed to be, drop
ped on the page. It moved and thus re
vealed its identity Its nature seemed
to be that of a worm, and its vitality
that of "he very lowest. It died as soon
as removed, and Berved as a bookmark
for many years. Detroit Free Press.

A Cheeky Man.
The cheekiest man of the season has
been found. He entered a local barber
shop not far from the city hall and asked
if he might wash his face. The tousorial
juggler said, "Of course."
"I'd like a clean towel, if you please,'
said the stranger suavely.
One could have heard a rin drop as
the barber acquiesced and handed him a
clean towel.
"May I brush my hair!" said the fas
tidious caller, as he stepried toward a
looking glass. The barber left his custo
mer and pinched himself to see if he was
really alive.
"1 have agood, clear glass here. Now,
just a little oil for my hair. There!" said
the stranger, as he rolled Corinthian
bangs on his marble-white brow.
The barber opened his mouth wider.
"Now, just a little wax on my mus
tache," said the visitor. He suited the
action to the word and twisted the ends
of his mustache to his satisfaction.
"I am much obliged, sir," said the ex
tra nice stranger, as he adjusted his hat.
Btrolled to the door and disappeared.
A liberal fanning and application of
cool water relieved the proprietor, but it
was an hour or two before he fully re
covered. Manchester Union.

A wrestling match has been ar
ranged to take place at Nebraska
City the fifteenth of this month be
tween George Harshman, of Avoca,
and FYank Desmond, of Chicago.
Harshman has also made arrange-
nents to wrestle with J. G. Neff, of
Sterling, Neb., on the twentieth of
this month. This match is for 200
a side and is to take place at Ster
ling. Mr. Barton, president of the
Omaha Smelting works, being desi
rous of testing the constitutionality
of the eight hour law.jsuggested that
the authorities arrest him on the
charge of violating the law, with a
view of making a test case of it. It
is not often we hear of men assum
ing the defensive, in a suit at law by
choice, but evidently Mr. Barton
desires this matter .--o tiled as soon
as possible, hence the steps taken.
Antiquity of the Domesticated Horse.
The horse was probably first domes
ticated on the plains of Central Asia.
This must have been at a very remote
period, for on the sculptured monuments
of ancient Assyria we find highbred.
carefully caparisoned steeds given in ad
mirable outline, showing how familiar
and how favorite an object the horse
must have been to the Assyrians. The
mane is long and flowing or curled or in
tassels. Three horses abreast drew the
chariot in which were three warriors.
Saddle horses led by grooms or bearing
norsemen are delineated, sometimes in
the thick of battle.
The horse was doubtless introduced
into Egypt as late as the time of Hyksos,
and sculptured representations of it are
often conventional types peculiar to later
Egyptian art. Instead of the life and
energy displayed by the Assyrian horse.
there is a rather weak attempt to repre
sent life and energy and the effect pro
duced is mechanical. Probably the horse
of the Delta did not compare in beauty
or speed with the Assyrian horse. Ber
jeau says he was more like the Dutch
horse of our day. Caroline K. Sherman
in Chicago Herald.
A member of the tragedian's company
relates the following "IK once told m-?
abuut a western experience of his in the
fifties. Booth v;is then the star of
certain stock company playing the Cali
fornia towns It was rough out tlire
then, and the same company did every
thing from Hamlet' to a song nnddane
all at the same theater and often with
in the same week.
"In this company there was a you rig
man of much histrionic talent, who, pre
vious to the advent of Booth played il:e
leading role, but who was thrown info
the 6hade by the new tar Jealousy and
hot words followed The manager an I
the disappointed tragedian were contin
ually at war over the distribution of
parts.
"When the time for producing 'Ham
let' arrived it wa3 found that the cant
would necessarily muster into act every
one from the ticket seller to the lamp
man. Ihe long suffering manager had
resolved to punish the recalcitrant actor,
and he was given the part of Guilden
6tern.
"There was some muttering, but all
went well enough until the openin
night. The house was filled. The
Bcenery was crude, and for that matter
no was the audience, but the applause
was generous. Things reached a climax
in the second scene of the third act,
where Rosencranz and Guildenstern are
6ent by the king to spy on the alleged
madness of Hamlet.
"The usual f utile endeavors to get any
information out of the melancholy Dane
were gone through with and then, of
course, came Booth's powerful scene in
which the musical instrument is intro
duced (the pipe on this occasion being a
clumsy tin affair, painted to suit the
aesthetic soul of the property man).
"The audience listened in breathless
expectation, and the dialogue proceeded
as follows:
"Hamlet Will you play upon this
pipe?
"Guildenstern My lord, I cannot.
"H. I pray you.
"G. Believe me, I cannot.
"And here the proud Dane lifted him
self erect, preparatory to hurling at
Guildenstern that crescendo of mingled
rage and scorn which begins with ' 'Tis
as easy as lying, etc." But the crescendo
never came.
"Hamlet I do beseech you.
"Guildenstern Then I don't mind if I
do.
"And seizing the obstreperous horn, he
broke forth into a weird, unearthly strain
of Yankee Doodle and what-not.
" 'I stood there dazed,' said Booth.
'for it seemed to me hours, trying to con
nect the lines or collect my thoughts so
as to go on, but it was of no use, for the
bend with the horn kept right on with
his refined torture, until at last, in sheer
mercy, the curtain went down to rise no
more that night.

but he had had his revenge.' " New

BLANKET
Nearly every pattern of ?a Horse
Blanket is imitated in color and
style. In most cases the imitation
looks just as good as the genuine,
but it hasn't the 7;ir threads, and
so lacks strength, and while it sells
for only a little less than the genu
ine it isn't worth one-half as much.
The fact that sa Horse Blankets
are copied is strong evidence
that they are THE STANDARD,
and every buyer should see that
the trade mark is sewed on

He Got the Seat.
A nice young man got into a tram car
a few evenings ago, and saw to hia de-
" light th only vacant seat was by the side
of a young lady acquaintance. He made
for that seat with joyous strides, and her
eyes answered his with delighted looks.
But just as he got there an elderly party
walked up and dropped into the coveted
seat The young man approached more
slowly and accosted the young lady.
"How is your brother?" be asked; "is
he able to get out?"
"Oh, yes!" she answered.
"Will he be very badly marked?" he
continued, and the old gentleman grew
suddenly interested.
"Oh, no!" she said, "with the excep
tion of a few marks on his forehead."
"Were you not afraid of taking it?"
the young man continued, while the old
gentleman broke out in a cold perspiration.
"Not at all," she replied: "I had been
vaccinated, you know."
The seat was vacated instantly, the
two innocent young hearts beat as half
a dozen, and the prattle of "nice talk"
6trewed that part of the car, while an
old gentleman scowled upon them from
the distant corner. London Tit-Bits.

The Maternal Instinct and Dogs.
Dog worship is, as has been said, a
fashion, it is, for the most part, an im
itation, a pretense, in the beginning at
least, though it may become, often does
become, sincere, serious to a degree, in
jurious after a long indulgence. Un
natural attachments, affections misdi
rected are likely to bring their own re
venges. They stray so far from fitness
that they cannot return to the normal
when they would, whatever the effort
made. That dog worship is a fashion is
6hown by the fashionable women who
regularly appear in the parks and public
drives with tiny dogs on their laps or
nestling against their boscgns.
Often these women are unmarried.
They give to dogs the care, the tender
ness, the devotion they would give to
babies had they borne them. It is plain
ly the derangement and frustration of
the maternal instinct, as is proved when
they become mothers. Then they usually
discard their four footed pets immedi
ately and forget all about them. Junius

A Unique Tea Service.
County Commissioner Tolman has an
unique tea service. It includes not only
the usual articles of a set the tray, plat

supplied with the usual cruets the whole
made of wood. Two kind3 of wood, black
walnut and white wood, were employed
in tneir manufacture, and the contrasted
colors, which appear in even the covers
of di6hes and tops of cruets, have a beau
tiful effect. The whole service is as use
ful as any made of crockerv, and was
made by a skilled woodworker while
confined in the county jail. He agreed
to make them for Mr. Tolman if the lat
ter would furnish the material. Port
