Two years ago James Snell, of Cass
county lost a pocket book containing
fifteen dollars, and note3 amounting to
over seyenty-five dollars, also a few
postage stimps and several postal
cards. After hunting high and low,
and going all over his farm where a pos
sibility of the lost treasure might be
found, he gave up the search and
charged it to profit and loss. A few
days ago while going through his mead
ow, the lost article met his gaze lying
tjust where it dropped two years be
fore. Upon opening, it was found to
be in a badly demoralized condition
the paste used in the manufacture of
the wallet had stuck tbe bills together
so tightly that Mr. Snell forwarded
them to Washington intact, and will let
the authorities perform the difficult
task. The signatures on the notes were
almost obliterated, the postal card3
frayed out at the edges, the postage
stamps in good order and the book a
total wreck. Ashland Gazette.

now to announce that I have discov
ered the periodic time of the great
Saxeby gale of October 7, 1869-the
storm which almost annihilated the
forests f New England and the mara

that it will be here on September 19th,
1887, and will be the greateac storm
that will take place before the year
1900. Its createst force will be u the
afternoon of September 20th, when the

A good story is told on an Omaha
stock yards man in regard to the Irish
vote, which is worth repeating.
It seems the Omaha gentleman who
is a 'blarstcd Britisher," and a republi
can too, was having a chat with a
friend of his from l'la'.tMiiouth, when
the conversation turned onto the prcsi
dency. The Omaha gentleman said.
well, I cannot tupporl Blaine, though I
have always been a republican; I can
not stand his luieigu policy; the baild
nig up of the Irish at the expense of
the English don't auit me, and I for
one will not suppoit him, for there is
no question about hTTToreign policy
The juke becomes apparent when it
is known that the Plattsmouth gentle
men was not an Englishman, as his
friend supposed, but an Irish Demo
"Karl" at Foster's, a Large and De
The reappearance in this city of Mr.
Charles A. Gardner, as "Karl," was the
occasion gf a large and delighted audi
ence, at Foster's Opera House last even
ing. Mr. Gardner established himself
as a favorite in Des Moines some time
ago, and nothing but delightful memo
ries arehfddof his charming entertain
ment last fall; when he appeared with
so much success in the play, "Karl the
Peddler." Ho is a very interesting
commedian of the Gerniaa-American
sort, he presents a good play, and he
has associated with himself an excel
lent company. Under such circum
stances only a first-class entertainment
could have been expected last evening,
and in this respect the audienc was not
disappointed. The play of "Karl" has
been remodeled considerable since it
was last presented here and all the
changes are for the better. There are
some new people with the company,
particularly Miss Topsy Venn, as Mary
Atwood, the domestic, and Geo. R.
Caine as the lawyer and thay bring ad
ditional strength to the company. Mr.
Gardner sings as sweetly as ever, and
besides his old favorites, such as the
Lulla-by" and the "Chamoi3 Hunter,"
with its Tyrolcse warble, he has a new
song which takes very well. It is "Jack
in the Box," and there is a nice little
surprise connected with it in the third
act. Mi33 Veren delighted the audi
ence with her songs and dances, and
proved herself a charming little actress.
The music was one of tbe finest fea
tures of the entertainment. The com
pany have their own orchestra, and they
gave a regular programme of delightful
music, including cornet and zylophone
solos. The same play will be repeated
tonight, and it deserves the generous
patrense which it is Bure to receive.

learn on Sunday morning that th

carefully took them out, lifted the

where Mr. Stamm was 6leeping, they
indented nothing except about $10 in

whom the parties were.
About 3 o'clock this morning, Mr.
Keller, the painter, was awakened by
parties trying to enter his house, he got
up in time to thwart their aims and to
get a slight view of them as they hur

The lightning rod swindler is again
in the land. Like the swindlers who
follow with the circus, they will always
fiud some one whom they can gull. The
last victim we have heard of is a hotel
keeper at Wymore. He made a square
bargain with the agent to have his
house rodded at a certain price. After
the work was done, the lightning rod
man charged more than four times the
amount agreed upon, and demanded
and received a note for the full amount
claimed. Now the hotel man comes
out in a card, denouncing the lightning
rod man as a swindler. There is no
doubt that Ihere are men in the light
ning rod business who are skinning the
public in a brazeu shameful manner.
There is no safety in allowing these
men to climb your hause with a piece
of rod m hi3 hand. If yo do you will
either be compelled to pay four times
the actual price of the rod3 orj pay an
attorney to defend you in . a law suit.

Sheriff Farrel were bringing Norria

Poke was placed on an improvised cot
being badly wounded. Chandler had
just telegraphed to the station ahead
for the people to come and "see two
bloodthirsty desperadoes I have cap
tured." (Captured after they were
handcuffed and shackled.) Farrel had
become sick of this business, and ex

it to Poke. Wells af once took the euo
and slipped the revolver under his
blanket. As the train approached the
next station Chandler stepped off and
proceeded to gather up a crowd, aud
heading the procession, marcbod into
the car where he was exhibiting his
menagerie. With a quick motion,
Poke snatched up his revolver, aud
snapped it at the crowd. Chandler fell
over backward and the mob rushed
frantically over him, scratching, fight
ing and kicking to see who would get
out first. It reminded oue of a herd of
