nominee for county clerk, is a young man
of estimable qualities and is well compe
tent to occupy the position of county
clerk. He t ame to Cuss county in 1880,
from Ohio, and bought a farm in Center
pruciuct, at which placa he has since re
tailed. Mr. CritchHeld is highly esteem
ed by his neighbors and acquaintances
and has been sent by them to represent
them in every county convention since
'80. During summer Mr. Critchticld
cares for his farm and during winter en
gages in teaching in the puplie schools.
I la is a typical republican, having always
been a leadtr in the party, in his commu
nity, for this reason he is deserving
of the suppoit of every republican in the
county. Now while we have a good
and worthv man of our own in the
field let each and eycry republican cast
his vote for that identical man nnd there
will be no question as to his election by
a ripe majority.

The democratic journal that published
the above is presuming altogether too
much on the ignorance of the readers,
if it has any of the republican faith.
The south well understands that Mr.
Cleveland did all in his power 'to return
to them their lost battle Hags, not only in
face of public sentimeut but in the face
of a plain statute as well. How could
he do more: When he found, president
though he was, the people had more
power than he, he came out with a card
saying he could not return the nags on
account of the laws of the country pre
venting; but never a word to indicate
that he had changed his heart's desire to
do just what he had been attempting to do,
The talk of democratic journals about
"Cleveland's refusing to return the flags"
is a very cheap speciman of wilful igno
rance that unbiased people will not read
except with derision.
Th3 Chicago Boodlors.
The men co:ivict d at Chicago of hav
mx for years carried on a .svstcmntic rob-
be -y of tho pi ojIc of Cook county wil
'cave no expedient untried that th j in
genuity of lawyers can developeto escape
the just punishment that should be given
them. They will use all the proceeds of
their plunder if necessary, and as much
more as their friends may be willinir to
put up for tiieiii. in order to defeat justice
"All that a man hath he will give for his
life;" and these men are yirturally fight
ing for th.ir lives. This is their right
and there can be no complaint if they
take the fullest advantage of it. But
honest men everywhere are to be congrat
ulated upon the indications that they are
making a hopeless struggle. On Thurs
.lay they were denied a new trial, and
to day an effort will be made to secure
an arrest of judgement. There is cverv
reason to expect that this also will fail
and that the final condemnation which
will put an indellible strain upon these
conscienceless rogues will be pronounced
Never were men mare clearly convictec
of crime than were these Chicago bood
lers, and it would be a misfortune to be
generally deplored it, through any
technicality or twist of the law, they
should now escape the full penalty for
their unbridled rescalities. "When
couple of weeks ago a stay of sentence
was "ranted to Sharp, the New York
boodler, whose criminal course was no
worse in kind if greater in degree than
that of the Chicago gang, the whole
country felt that justice had been betray
ed and rascality had won a victory. The
judge who did this for Sharp canceled
all his claims to public confidence, if he
did not likewise proclaim his own dis
honor. Any consideration shown the
Chicago boodlors, not most clearly justi
tied under tlie law, would equally be re
garded by tlie country as a betrayal of
justice, and would consign any judge
who should grant it to a popular repro
bation not less seyere than is felt for the
boodlers themselves. Tlie punishment
of these men is not an affair of simply
local importance. The example would
be effective everywhere and it is needed.
The lesson cannot be too strongly im
pressed ths.t the man who betrays a pub
lic trust and robs the people .who have
reposed confidence in him and committed
to him the care of their public interests, is
a criminal less deserving of sympathy
and clemency than any other cla , s of
scoundrels known to the law. To prove
a man a l.oodler should be to fix upon
him the mo-t odious title in the vocabu
lary of criminal designations. For in
deed what other class of thief is there
quite so contemptible aud debased as I13
who with pretense? of impregnable integ
rity securer, public trust and in the secu
rity of tho popular confidence uses it to
rob the people, corrupting and debauch
ing all with whom he comes in contact?
With such rascals the law cannot eleal
too severely, and the general welfare de
mads the certain nnd swift punishment
of the convicted boodler. When this
principle shall universally prevail' there
will be fewer to punish. Bee.

THIRD JUDICIALDISTRlCT OUT
As Clyen by Judge Cooiey, or
Omaha -An Honorable Quar
tette. Judge Cooiey, of Omaha, was in the
city Saturday on legal business and was
interviewed by a Hekald representative.
In response "to epaerii'a as regards the
outlook of the third judiical district,
comprising Sarpy, Douglas, Washington
and Burt counties, he made the follow
"I thiuk 'hree if not four of the re
publican nominees for judge will be
elected in the Omaha judieiul elistsict.
Lee Estell, one of tho republican nom
inees forjudge is one of the most popular
men in eastern Nebraska. He was the
best district attorney that they ever had
in their district and gave splendid satis
faction. He served with distinction in
the war and is a prominent Q. A. R.
man. Has a fine judicial mini anel
would make a first-class judge. Any
talk about him being a ward politician
is a malicious falsehood. He is sure of
an election by from 1,500 to 2,000,'major-
The second nominee, O. II. Ballou,
is a bright and highly cultivated young
lawyer and stands at tho top of his pro
fession. He has great properly intercuts
in this (Plattsmouth) city as well as in
Omaha. His practice is extensive in tho
federal and the supreme court of the
state, and I was surprised to think that
he would accept the nomination forjudge
as his practice now pays him fully double
what a judgeship would. Mr. Ballou
will make a fair judge and the people
will honor themselves by electing him.
Judge A. Hancock, the third nominee
on the republican ticket for judge, is
most emphatically a Nebraska boy, hav
iii" been reared and educated in Nebraska.
We were at the state university together
and he graduated with very high stand
ing at that institution, lie was a poor
boy and worked himself from the bot
tom to the top of the ladder by his
indominable will, by his honesty and
efficiency in the trust reposeel in him, and
is now serving his term as county judge,
to which he was elected by a splendid
majority in Sarpy county. Although
that is a democratic county he will carry
it this fall by 1.000 majority, lie is a
man of broad character and high legal
attainments, a stalwart republican of the
most pronounced type and is sure of an
Judge Hopewell, the fourth and last
nominee, of Tekamah, is now one of the
judges of the district and has been
endorsed by the bar of the elistrict, and
also by the democratic party, and is
therefore sure of an election, being with
out opposition. He is popular through
out the district and his tlecissions are
universally respected by the bar and
bench of the state, "
Speaking further, concerning Judge
Wukelcy, Judge Coolcy said:
"Judge Wakeley, the nestor of tho bar
of Nebraska and the west, I can say
without fear of contradiction, is the
ablest jurist in the west, and by many
prominent lawyers is considered the equal
of Judge Cooiey, of Michigan. Itwasthe
universal regret of the bar of our district
that he did not receive a renomination
from tho republican convention. At a
bar meeting which wa? largely attended
by the lawyers of our district he was
most emphatically endorseel for his last
two term i and askcel to accept a renom
ination at the hanci3 of the republican
and democratic parties and the bar. He
would have been cnelorsed by our repub
lican convention if it had not been for
his associations with mugwumps over
which he had no controll and for which
he was in no way to blame. If any one
of the four judges should b3 defeated
Judge Wakeley, if he consent to run,
will be reelected.""
The judge further said that the whole
of the republican ticket, county, state etc.
will be electeel in Omaha and Douglas
county by a tremendus majority. He also
informed our representative that the
great war between the city council and
police commission has been taken to the
courts where it should have been referred
to some six months ago, and it will be
speedily aeljusted there.

CASE OF PREMATURE BURIAL.
A Singular Occurrence AVlilch Took I'lace
In l'nrls Horrible Affair.
Another case of premature burial
worthy of being iinaly.cd in tho rciilhtio

exact countei pai t f what occurred about
twelve months a.-o in another rural part

imagination conjured upand partly awed
by tlie ivquirenn nls enacted by the law
in circumstances such as those in which
lie found himself placed, left the eoflm in
the care of the mourners and went olf
with his somlier story to M. I a- Ma ire.
That rural dignitary, having duly donned
his scarf of olTice and summoned the vil

was discovered that the w oman had just
dieel from fright, having awakened from
a trance to lind herself hemmed in be

When horrible .scenes like this are re
jn ated it is time for the authorities and
the public at large to take into considera
tion the invention of the ingenious un
dertaker who has adopted as his motto,
"No more premature burials." This
practical person oilers to bupply in all
cases of doubtful death an apparatus by
means of which those who may have bad
the misfortune to le buried alive may
not enly inhale fresh air on their awak

HuMta of Hermit Crabs.
These crabs are very quarrelsome and
will light desperately, esieciaily if two
pjiecimens be ej"ctel from th ir habita
tion and one of ti e shells remove!. At
last the stronger puts the weaker to flight,
se-izes upon the shell and whips into it as
if shot from a spring. Tho homeless one
tries in vain to pull him out, for at each
attempt he only retreats farther .Mid
farther into the shell, pressing his legs
firmly against it and blocking uj the; en
trance with his fighting claw, which is
always very nme-h larger than its fcilow.
In consequence of this combative nature
the crab is sometimes culled by the liamo
Sometimes I b.ive caused much amuse
ment by removing a. hermit crab from its
habitation and supplying it with a shell
aliout two sizes too .smail for tlie accom
mexlation of its body. No other protec
tion being obtai'n'.le, the erab picks up
the shell, twists it round and round with
marvelous dexterity and quickness, meas
ures its capacity with its legs, and at last
makes the best of a bad business by forc
ing tlie tin of its body into it as far as
can lie done and thi.ii walks alout e!i con
polately, knowing tiiat the greater part of
its soft person is u-.protectcd. When it
bus had time to become thoroughly un
comfortable a largo .shell should he placed
in the vessel. lu a moment tlie crab
pounces on it, twL-is it about, and with a
movement almost too quick for the eye
to follow drops the little shell and jrks
itself into the l.i ge one. where it rests
with an air of absolute content which is
intensely ludicrous. Longman's Maga
zine. Tho "JerK" .it a Revival.
The "falling exerciso" became not so
common, and the jerks" succeeded.
These, if possible, were harder to account
for than the former, and it is impossible
for me to fully describe them. The f ist
I saw affected with them were very
pious, exemplary persons. Their heads
would jerk back suddenly, frequently
causing them to give a cry or make some
other involuntary noise. After this nearly
all classes locauie subject to them. The
intelligent and the ignorant, the strong,
athletic man and the weak, effeminate
persons were handled alike by them.
Sometimes the head would fly every v.-ay
bo quickly that the features could not be
recognized. I have seen their heads fly
backward and forward so quicklj- that
the hair of females would be made to
crack like a carriage whip. Some wicked
persons have taken "jerks" while ridi
culing them, and been powerfully oper
ated on; others have taken them while
trying -to mimic the-m and had the fit in
good earnest. One thing that appeared
almost, if not entirely, miraculous, was
that among the hundreels I have seen get
them, I never knew or heard of one le

soreness caused by their cllorts to avoid
