A very amusing incident occurred
in the neighborhood of Vine nnd 5th
streets this morning. A large bay horse
engaged itsslf in chasing a cow. The
horse would start the cow in one direc
tion,, head her off and run her into cor
ners and thus worried her for some time
and the cow became almost frantic while
tne horse seemed to enjoy her disconi
fort hugely, and quite a number of
persons were attracted to see the
fun, while severel boys came to the res
cue of the bovine with sticks and clods
and finally separated the animals and
gave the cow a chance to escape, after
which the horse ran up and down the
street apparently in search of the cow.

The Wedding of Mr. Charles C.
Hemple and Miss Ella A. Boetl
son an Event of Yesterday.
The handsome residence of Mr. and
Mrs. I. Bcetison one mile south of Ash
land, was yesterday the scene of a pleas-
and gathering of friends and relatives,
the occasion being the celebration of the
marriage vows of Charles C. Hem pel, one
ofPlattsmouth's estimable young men,
and Miss Ella A. Bcetison, the charming
and accomplished daughter of the host
Promptly at two o'clock the strains of
the wedding march announced the time
for the ceremony was at hand and the
brido and groom, accompanied by Mr.
Ben Ilempel and Miss Teresa Ilempel,
brother and sister of the groom, entered
the south parlor, in which the friends
were congregated, and took their places
before Rev. Donoway who performed a
short but impressive ceremony with his
usual good form and taste. After the
bride and groom were pronounced man
and wife they were greeted with the con
gratulations of all present.
The party was then invited to the
dining room and the usual festivities
and dinner wcro indulged in, fraught
with much pleasure.
The presents were numerous, useful
and harfdsome. The newly married
pair took the evening train and passed
through this city on a joyful wedding
tour to Chicago and other eastern points,
after which they will take up their abode
in Plattsmouth with the welcome of their

for a ball at the opera house and the ex

The ball given by this lodge of the
brotherhood about a year ago, and which
is so favorably remembered, will, if pos

and no means will be spared to accom

The hall will be decorated in railroad
colors and the supper will be one that

the boys are concerned, nothing will be

The Comedy Eventof the Season.
Sol Smith Russell is a fellow of infinite
jest, the possessor of two eves so bright
and mischevious that he can almost act
with them, the smiler of a smile that is
warm and genuine, the parader of a pair
of legs that vibrate with the spirit of
comedy. He sings well, his lines are de-
ivered with quiet intensity ot meaning,
his turns of expression are quaint. It goes
without saying that the Opera House
will be packed, and it is needless to ad
vise the admirers of Mr. Russell to be
first at the box office at 7:15 p. m. Thurs
day evening when the doors will be open.
Sol Smith Russell is a great admirer of
Bill Nye, the humorist, and that the feel
ing is mutual is shown by ahe followeng
characteristic letter to Mr. Ed Kidder, who
wrote the play "Bewitched".
New York, Sept. 23, 1887.
Dear Mr. Kidder: I am very much
obliged to you for kindly sending me Mr.
Russell's P. S. I have always been a
great admirer of him, both personally
and professinally; and it tickles me very
much to know that he rends my simple
yet touchful stuff.
I am glad your new play "Bewitched"
is so successful and hope to see it 60011.
The reason I've never been over to Dock

other words, I'm trying to keep house.

Wc publish the following mcmorialof
Mrs. Duke which was read by Mrs. Spur-
lock, at the W. C. 1. U. convention
which has just closed at Beatrice, as it
may be of interest to some of our readers.
Jan. 3rd, 1S7S, Mrs. R. L. Duke was
chosen Rec. Sec, of Plattsmouth Womans
Christian Temperance Union, which posi
tion she luleel up to the time of her de
cease, July, 4th. 1887. To say that she
tilled this important position in our union
tor nine consectutive years, with untir
ing fidelity and prompt executive ability,
would give but a tithe of her work. In
adelition to her eluty as Rec. Sec, she
served as Cor. Sec. for about five years.
in mis capacity, sue proved nerseir tne
right arm of our auxilary, for with her,
tne temperance cause wouta urooK no
delays, and all communications were
promptly answered,all reasonable requests
complied with, and our conventional
interests w ith the work at large, urged
with force. While we had the temper
ance library 111 charge, she gave her
share of gratuitous seryice, and when it
passed into the hands of the young laelies
she was their counselor and aid. Her
attenelance on our regular meetings was
more than her meat and drink, yea, for
the triumph of our cause she was ready
to make any sacrifice. During the long
winter of 18SG, she openeel the church
and made it as a comfortable home of
iier own to which she gave us a warm
welcome as we came, one by one. If
there was a place of preferment, she re
fused it, and in honor preferred another,
The poor and unfortunate found in her
an untiring friend. Her home was the
store-house of supplies for the needy,
md no night was too dark or day too
:old for her to go anel aelminister to the
distressed. In our Sabbath afternoon
meetings she manifested most intense in
terest, 6ccurcd speakers, arranged for
music and at times was induced to pre
side, though she shrank from any plat
form work or public recognition.
Her painful and prolonged illness
brought her still nearer to us as a sister
beloved. The laelies of the union were
her almost constant attendants. She was
patient and cheerful to the end, loosing
none of her mental vigor. And with
nterest unabated in the cause in which
she was willing to spend and be spent
she crossed the "river" anel is,"crowneel."
ccording .to her request the White Rib
bon mothers and daughters helped ar
range the details of the funeral rites,
preceding the bier to the grave forming
in line on either siele whilst all that was
mortal of our beloved co-laborer was
laid to rest; and beside that open grave
we could but exclaim, "in labor she hath
been more abundant than we all." Rachel
Leah Duke was the lineal decendant of
the illustrious Hamilton family
with which George Washington was con
verted. There is of this noble family
penological record reaching back for
many centuries, and one who writes from
personal knowledge and research says
"Of the numerous tributes I never knew
one to be convicted of a penal crime, to
be a county pauper or to be accused of
being very rich, but their ambitions and
aspirations were mostly for godliness and
always for refinement of minel anel man
ners anel cultivation of the nobler instincts
of human nature".
The family name Hamilton is its own
interpeter "Hill Fortress", also the family
crest, a bunch of quills and for several
generations they have planted themselves
on the rock of moral reform. Anel the
last words pcnnetl in the new book of
records she had just opened proved the
truth of the statement "For God and
hore and native lanel". "Some trust in
c hariots and some in horses but we will
remember the nams of our God." In the
name of Goel we will set up our banner.
What wonder that with such a light
