A fool cockroach climbed to the top
of a mucilage bottle yesterday and looked
down into the gloomy abyss below. It
had no ?usiness there. It was not fond
en mueiiage, anu ii it naa Jiaa sense
enough to keep its feet elry it would have
gone away. A horrible warning was be
fore its eyes. Down in the seething
flood of mucilage lay the bodies of three
of its kinel, pale and coltl in death. It
looked at them a while and hesitated
and then went down. Then it tried to
get out again but in vain. To-elay it is
a corpse. Other fool cockroaches have
- joined it there, anel others still will join
it. There is surely no" such a fool in the
world as a cockroach, unless if be a man.
A man will seo others go elown to wreck
anel ruin and finally land at Desolation,
and insteael of profiting by tLe example
he follows the same path they ate tread
ing with the same results. The fool man
who speuds his time in pulling corks is
as bael as the fool cockroach that goes
clown into a mucilage bottle from which
it will never emerge. "Topics of ths

Died. Saturday morning at four
o'clock, Dec. 10th, 1887, Ada May,
youngest elaughter of Mrs. S. M. Craig,
after a lingering illness of nearly two
years. The eleceased was born May 3el,
1869, and was a bright young girl of 18
summers, anel oi an unusual amiaoie ex
position which won for her many and
lasting friends. She was at the time of
her eleath visiting her sister, Mis. J. R.
Barker, at Eight Mile Grove, having I
gone there but tne crnnaay De
fore. Th3 day of her death the
very trees seemed to be sympathising
with the sorrowing friends, seeming to
bn converted to weeping willows by
their weight of frost, excepting a few
limbs pointing upward emblematic.
That although bowed down with sor
rowing, we were not without hope of
noeting beyond the elark river of eleath.
The funeral services were conducted at
the house by the Rev. W. B. Alexander,
of Plattsmouth, after which the remains
were interred in the Plattsmouth ceme

art lily church, she had early connected
herself with the elevout workers and the
church of God.

washing. The fine painting is executed
in a room on the second floor which is
40xS0 feet. This department is one of
the most pleasant in the shops; house
plants are flourishing as nicely as they
do in any of the private residences, while
the walls are handsomely decorated and
artistically arranged with elegant pictures
which display an inviting look. The

every one cheerful, which is visibly por

Governor Taylor, of Tennessee, recently
told of a colored clergyman who preached a
sermon on the text: "And the multitudes
came to him and he healed them of divers
diseases." Said he: "My dying congregation,
this is a terrible text. Disease is in the world.
The smallpox slays its hundreds, the cholera
its thousands and the yellow fever its tens of
thousands, but, in the language of the text, if
you take the divers, you are gone. These
earthly doctors can cure the smallpox, cholera
and yellow fever if they get there in time, but
nobody but tne good ird can euro toe
divers." Isew York Tribune.
Wanted It Understood.
"Wanted Lodgings by a B. A. Adver
tiser wiahes it clearly understood that none
need apply who object on principle to fall in
with his not excessive requirements, which
include 1st, punctuality in serving meals;
2d, moderate quiet in house; 3d, dry toast
thrice daily; 4th, joints to be roasted (not
baked), and chops and steaks to bo grilled

Use av lArff Stove.
A large stove consuming the same amount
of coal as one of smaller size will radiate
jnoro heat, and is therefore the more eco
nomical. The reason for this is that the
larger stove has more surface, and hence
when hot its effct is greater upon the sur
rounding air. Of course, the factor of intel
ligent management must be taken into ac
count with this comparison.-' Boston Budget.
