The ice on the Missouri at this point
is gradually dissolving, and we expect
in a few days that the river will assume
its usual spring appearance.

The 22nd day of February, 1742, was
celebrated in this city today by the clos
ing of schools and public institutions.
The reason should be firmly implanted in
the mind of every American citizen.
The Btuart Co. was again greeted with
a full house last night. Those who are
capable of concentrating their thoughts
on matters cmotinal, imaginative or real
istic, should not fail to witness the ahi'it
of this company.

We arc not hard-pushed for an item
but cannot help noticing the arrival of
the companions of happy childhood, the
robin-redbreast, genus ( T.Miyraloriotts).
Hundreds of bcautifal couplets have
been written about this ilivitf: "Har
binger of Spring."'
" Mr. Bernard of the Stuart Theatre
Co., is deserving of special mention for
his mastery of the violin. His playing
of "The Mocking Bird" and "The Last
Rose of Summer," elicit hearty and de
served applause. Although, not a l'aga
ninni, his manipulation of the "Cremona"
is equaled by few in this country.
"That's so." Let a woman go to
India with an avowed purpose of bet
tering the condition of the natives, and
we call her a missionary. In any town
in the state, let her show her interest in
laws that may effect our boys and our
homc-i, and the foulest, dirtiest, profane&t
man pronounces her a crank and a long
haired fool. Ioica Home Journal.
There is an article published in the
Boston Woman's Column expressing the
opinion of Mrs. M. O. C. Lcavitt, the
"round the world missionary." in which
is the following: "The Xautch girl
are as devout as if their lives were
saintly." Nantch means to dance, and
no female dances in India except those
whose reputations correspond with the
modern madame-du pave.
The social to be held this evening in
Rockwood Hall, under the direction of
the members of the Christian church, will
be attendel by the elite of the city.
"Every little makes a muckle," or "Every
pea helps to fill the peck," are old English
and Scottish proverbs. If you pay your
ten cents admission to this social tonight
you will fulfill the idea conveyed in these
axioms and aid in a Christian cause.
"Inshavogne," of the Stuart repor
toue, is full of pathos and wit. The fol
lowing, which are guided by memory,
will illustrate the beauty of sentiment
used in the piece : "I must drink to
drown the man before I can do such dir
ty work." "That kiss on my cheek has
rose a blush of shame " "There has been
o much scandal said behind your back,
that if brought to your face would raise
a stench that you could smell, even if
yu held your nose with your forefinger
and thumb." "A father's first duty is to
secure the happiness of-his child." "A
man who fights for hi country's cause is
a soldier and not a traitor."
"You have got a glee club in Platts
mouth that's the best one in this state, and
the next one to it." This remark, iu
which we coincide, was uttered on the
"battlements" of the Coverdale House,
after the performance at the Opera last
night. The cause of the proud and
truthful utterance was the fact that "our"
rite club were serenading the .Stuart
Theatre Co. at that popular hostelry.
Their rendition of "Come where the lilies
bloom," "Come where my lovelies dream
ing," and "Nourine Maurine," were
highly appreciated by the troupe, one of
whom, Mr. Bernard, played some beauti
ful selections on the violin and mandoline.

goods around the city without a license.
He was obstinate, wouldn't pay, went to

his fine and was released.

Iu the announcement of the death of
Arthur Pickens in these columns is ti
poem. It was not composed by Tennyson
or Swinburne, but by the boy's father
this morning (while riding on a street
cir) and pondering over his sad afiiiction.
Although not containing classic expres
sions, it is worthy of study, as illustrat
ing the force of pathos derived through
faith in scriptual truths.
Three Englishmen arrived in the
city last night. 'Mb J were "just over,"
jind will be e mployed as machinists at
the shops. Their names are S. W. An
derson, (brother to Leonard Anderson,)
C. C. Mitcliel and B. Ilcarson. Until
their arrival here, they were residents of
that city where Mscaulay's Xewzelanclcr
stands on a bridge calmly surveying the
placid Thames and trying to read the

"I have often taken in four hund
red dollars before this hour of the day,
about 1800," said Mr. Shannon as he
nonchalently viewed his livery barn be
ing torn down yesterday morning. His
remark had reference to the time of the
"Pikes' Peak" excitement and when
there were no railroads entering this city,
but the river was used as a landing place
for vessels loided with those who
"fought for gold and not for fame" and
made this city an outfitting point before
The autopsy on the remains of Mrs.
Cook, conducted by Drs. Schildknecht
aud Siggins yesterday morning revealed
dropsy and enlargement of the heart
with fatty degeneration of the same or
gan with ossification of the arteries and
valves of that organ. The liver and
spleen were also greatly enlarged and
congested and extensive adhesions of all
the vital organs caused by the general
inflammation of which the lady had been
such a long, and great, and patient suf
lerer. The dropsy which wa3 the im

a symptom ot uie organic disease oi me
At 7 o'clock this morning a group
of four or five persons stood outside the
undertaking establishment of Hciiry
Boeck. Their laughter could be heard
at the high school. The cause of their
merriment was the fact that one of the
company had completed a contract, in
which he said: "Here is my note for fif
ty dollars for a casket, and ten tlollars
for a hearse to carry mc to my grave.
But, mind you, if I die before our streets
are paved aud the road is rough and
muddy, you will return the ten dollars
to my h"irs." This conversation remind
ed us of an eccentric, jolly couple who
kept a tombstone in their sitting room.
The name of the man's wife, and the us
ual "Sacred to thejmcmory" was chiselled
out of the stone, but the date of clepar
ture was left blank. The old gent, in the
presence of his wife, (who seemed to en
joy the idea), would point out with
pride to the tombstone and say, "There's
nothing like being ready, my boy, 'In
the midst of life, we are in death.'"

The heading of this article will remind
some of our tenders of Chaa. Dickens'
receipt fsr the formation of pretty, pout
ing lips, where a governess chides a little
child for saying "Father." "Papa, is more
preferable, my dcai ! And if you would
sometimes repeat the words, papa, pota
toes, prunes and prism, Cand she might
have added PlatUmouth) it would give
a pretty form to the lips."
This article has only reference to the
prism of I'lattsmouth's future, suggested
by the pulling down of Shannon's livery
barn at the corner of Fourth and Main
streets. This lnndmark, so dear to the
memories of those; old settlers of our
city, who arc gradually reaching "that
bourne from which no traveler return?,"
was erected by John Dontlan in ISliO,
and at that tima the lot on which it was
built was owned by the Arnold heirs.
There has been ten transfers of the prop
erty since the that made, May 21, US .VI,
and recorded as follows :
"Quit-claim deed of lot (, in block

building is now occ upied by Mr. Will

Mr. Wagner has purchased the livery
barn and is tearing it down with the in
tention of selling the lumber. Mr.
Wheatly Micklewait who made out the
deed for the first transfer of the property
is now a restaurant keeper of Lincoln,
Neb. His son, who was the first white
male child born in this county, now
weighs o(54 pounds, and is conductor of
a passenger on the II. P., running from
Auburn to Lincoln. These ancient mo
meutoes are gradually disappearing to
make way for more imposing structures,
still, their memories will linger in the
minds of many old citizens, who will
calmy meditate the couplet:
"Leaf by leal the ro-e fall.
Drop by drop tlie brook runs dy."
It is our painful tluty to record the
death of Arthur J. Pickens, son f the
well known contractor of that name,' re
siding on the comer of Ninth and Mar
ble streets. The cause of the child's
death was pneumonia. He had been
sick only eight days when he wan sum
moned by spirits above. The little
cherub, had he lived, would have been
six mor.ths old to-day. The funeral
takes place at 1 p. m. to-morrow from
the parents' residence. Hev. J. P. Baird
of the Episcopal church will attend the
funeral. This is a terrible afliction
the loss of a bright, promising, prattling
little boy, and requires a great deal of
christian fortitude to bear the grief pro
duced by such a sad loss. The calm,
christian resignation and happy antici
pation of a future meeting by relatives,
in instances like this, speak volumes of
refutation f the opinions of Ingcrscll.
