is tho favorite or Chieen ictoria, which

The custom of family reunions during
the holidays is becoming quite prevalent
in this county. It is ft very pretty cus
tom and adds much to the enjoyment of
our people. Oae of these incidents oc
curred yesterday at the residence of Col.
S. P. Vanatta, in this city, that was
fraught with a great deal of pleasure to
those present. In 1800 Col. Vanatta left
the state of Ohio and moved to Iowa,
leaying behind him his brother, J. R.
Vanatta, and his sister, Mrs. J. A. Black.
The next year Mrs. Black removed to
Iowa, where she has resided with her
family ever aince, and in 18C2 J. R. re
moyed west and settled in Plattsmouth,
Nebraska, then a territory, and after re
maining here about seventeen years re
moved to the Republican Valley, where
he resided till last full, when he returned
to Cass county. S. P. removed from
Iowa to Nebraska nine years ago, and five
years ago came to Plattsmouth. Mrs.
Black is now here on a visit to her broth
ers and two of her children, who reside
in Nebraska City, and on yesterday, af
ter an absence of twenty-seven years, the
two brothers and sister met at the resi
dence of S. P. Vanatta in this city. They
parted as young, vigorous men and wo
men twenty-seven years ago; they met
yesterday old men aud women, aged res
pectfully 67, 63 and 57. They have all
had varied and different experiences, and
they spent the day in recalling the scenes
when "Childhood drank the cup of life,
before it was dashed with sighs and
tears." It was a meeting that was very
much enjoyed, and will be long remem
bered by them all.
Saturday sentence was passed at
Glenwood, Iowa, in a forgery case which
is unusually interesting. A short sketch
of the case is abont as follows: Last fall
A. L. Young, a young attorney of that
city obtained money from a bank to settle
up his accounts with a note signed T. A.
Kenny, which is the name of a leading
citizen there, previous to going to Omaha.
When, later on, the note was presented
to Mr. Kenny for payment he denounced
it at a forgery. Papers were made out
against A. L. Young and he was brought
back from Omaha and arranged for trial
at the winter term of court. He testified
that he did not tell the bank it wa3 a
note from the Glenwood T. A. Kenny,
and that it was a T. A. Kenny of St.
Louis. The prosecution desiring an af
fidavit from the St. Louis T. A. Kenny
that he made a note to A. L. Young,
Young went to St. Louis and returned
with one. For a time the "prosecution
was puzlled, but the notary public be
fore whom the affidavit was made waa
called as a witness. He testified that the
affidavit had been made before him and
that A. L. Young was the man who made
it as T. A. Kenny. This testimony was
conclusive, and although cenvicted of
forgery the shrewdness which Young had
exercised in his defense was much ad
mired and commented upon. Saturday
Young was sentenced to three years in
the penitentiary for forgery.
Prophet Foster predicts that "Janu
ary will be a stormy changeable month.
The first seven days will be full of blus

Tho principal force of these storms will

The other storm dates will be about the
13th, 18th, 25th and 30th. The change
from warm to cold, and the reverse, will

Gecda Spbixgs, Kan., Jan. 1. The

is the headquarters of the Oklahoma
movements and, adds: We are authoriz
