was very drunk, while returning home
from Hastings to his farm, fe.l from his
wagon and it is supposed the fire from

verdict of tlie coroner's jury, the sheriff

After tii.: examination of these wit

iinger, U. S. llohivr, E. J. Harriodd. Ren
fro hart. John Creeth aud C. S. Clark.
returned the following verdict:
"The iurv u; on their : ins tlo sav.that
the said Augustus Sehoocho cauie to his
loath from tlie effects of severe burns,

from his lighted pipe, at a timu when de

October, 24, 1SS7.
The jury do further laid that a great
and legally criminal responsibility rests
with the man or men who dealt out
liquor to deceased until he became prac

From the above fair, reasonable and
-uggestive verdict, there is considerable
food for thought and reflection, and also
-uggestion for future action, and this

A CLENWOOD ITEM.
Mrs. Ed- Hammers. Dserts Her
Husband for a Better Man-
Yesterday aftpruoon a man of about
40 summers with a big brimmed hat,
blue pants and high topped boots, was
on the street. His name was Ed. Ham
mers and he was from "(Jlenwood and he
was looking for his wife, a fair lady of
about 15 years his junior.
It seems that Tuesday evening Mrs.
Hammers accompanied by a young wom
an just about of age and a man who
was more attractive than her husband,
left (Ilenwood and came to Plattsmouth
They stopped for the night at the Per
kins House registering as Mrs. D. T. Haun
and sister, of Rnrlington, aud J. C.Clark,
of Pacific Junction.
Mr. Hammers became aware of the
elopement and came over on yesterday's
train to get his wife to return. He
hunted Marshal Maliek and they went to
the Perkins and interviewed Mrs. Ham
mers, but she refused to return with her
husband, and apparently expected to be
arrested by the sheriff, but did not seem
to care if she was, just so she did not
have to return. Mr. Hammers returned
to Glenwood last evening not having
seen the man who had caused his trouble,
as the fellow kept quiet and was not ap
prehended l3- the oflicers. Mrs. Ram
mers with her iniaut boy, which she
had brought with her, and her com
panion, left the hotel in the evening and
staid on the street till late, apparenily
looking for Clark, but he did not appear
and as the jail "was not lit to conline
them in, Policeman F;tzpatrick took the
women to the Pacific House where they
remained for the night, and this morning
they boarded ono of the eastern trains.
Mr. Hammers has lived in Glenwood
for a long time and this woman was his
second wife, aud the little boy was their
A NEW CLUB
Tho Young Man Form a Society.
For a long time Plattsmouth has felt
the need of a society for the young men,
through which they could associate and
have a good time, and the want is now
filled with a society known as the"IJach-
elor's Social Club."
For about a week the founders of the
society have been making arrangements
to perfect an
meetings have been held.
The organization has been perfected so
far as to elect o Ulcers and collect money
with which to fix things up to make the
club a source of interest aud profit to th
members. Ot course no married men
will be admitted.
The by-laws will be drawn up and
adopted as soon as possible, and the so
ciety promis e to be a worthy success.
The club has rented the front room
over J. I. Unruh's store, which is being
fixed up for their occupation.
The young gentlemen who are interest
ed in the enterprise seem very earnest in
in iicir desire to have tlie club a good
one. and the Herald, from the present
outlook, ventures fo predict for the club
a brilliant future.
