The good people of Plattsmouth are
just now clamoring to know what has be

the money was turned over to Jie editors
of the Jovmal, but what afterwards bo
came of it deponent sayeih not, as it wns
never received by the p.-eper ones. An
explanation, it would seem, is now in or

The B. & M. band played 6ome
choice selections last Saturday night
while marching up and down Main street.
They also serenaded the Brotherhood at
their ball. This band is a credit to the
state of Nebraska. Their drum-major,
J. T. Morrissey, wears a splendid and
very expensive uniform and has n
method of twirling the staff quite novel.
He formerly held a position of impor
tance in the 72nd Gordon Highlanders in
the British Army.
Last Saturday afternoon the Brother
hood, old and young, were sportive, and
gay out at "Fitzgerald's Forly." Their
amusements were bass ball and football.
The object of these games is to occupy
the minds of the young, impulsive mem
bers and keep them away from the temp
tations of the streets of the c'ty, when?
they are met on every coiner by dirty
scoundrels who try to get them under the
influence of liquor, and then wo'in out
secrets of the Brotherhood, or else try
and wheedle them into a quarrel or any
thing that would tend to br?ng d'sg.-ace
on the order.

The spectacular drama of 'IZozo,
the Magic Queen," had its first produc
tion at the Academy of Music last night.'
The play is one which will please every
class of theatre-foer. There is a bril
liant and sparkling dialogue, conducted
chiefly by Washington Kaowall, a typi
cal American, which continually recalls
the spectator from fairyland and reminds
him by very practical remarks of mun
dane affairs. Miss To ma Ilanlon as Rho
dodendron, and Tootsie. Mr. George II.
Adams, as " Washington Knowall," Mr.
Charles Ren wick as "Captain Randall"
of the' wrecked ship, and Mis Pauline

are the principal actors of a strong and
well selected company. Baltimore Herald.
A Dastardly Deed.
Between Friday night and this morn
ing, some scouudrel spawned on society
from a chaotic vacuam of infamy, broke
into the Mercer school-house west of
town and tore to pieces all the school
books and broke the school-slates and
scattered the pieces all over the floor.
An anatomy of negation capable of do
ing such a mean, spiteful trick is like the
society sneak. He would scrape a fleet
ing sunbeam for fear it would reach the
bedside of some sick child. Ho would
steal the prattle from a baby's lips, would
run a mile to seize his own shadow, and
like the dog iu the manger, who
fould'nt eat the hay himself and would'nt
let the cow he would not breathe
hard for fear ot waking his own oil
Dpring and thereby being deprived of
that nutriment he was too old to take
He would steal bread and nutter from
a child going to school, or take tho last
coin from the tin cup of a blind beggar,
and finish one chapter in his infamous
career by stealing the coins from the eye
lids of his dead mother.

Who will now tell the fortunes of
the gushing, romantic, stage-struck
novel-reading maiden, the idiotic mole
cule, stick-of-celery of the male gender,
the hopeful old maid, the grass widow,

sings mezzo-so-squeaky, "I'm ninety-five

The mass meetings yesterday, conduct
ed by the evangelists in the HeLhodist
chnrch and Rockwood hall, we.e largely
attended, especially in the evening. They
had such a tendency which is hoped will
bi the means of bringing forth a great
revival in this city. The talks of Mr.
Clagett were practical, interesting and
full of thought. The singing by Mr.
Bilhern was cheering, quickening and
soul-inspiring. The talking and singing
has undoubtedly left some good impres
sions upon the hearers. The meeting in
the afternoon at Rockwood hall was held
under the auspices of the Young Men's
Christian Association. The subject talk
ed on by the evangelists was: "What
think ye of Christ ?'
There will be a meeting every day this
week at 3 o'clock p. m., in the Methodist
church, to which everybody is cordially
invited. A hearty invitation is also ex

he listlessly walked passed Clark's gro
cery store. Suddenly there was the jingle
of falling coin. He stopped and looked
en the ground behind, before, and right
and left, thrust his hands anxiously in all
his pockets, scratched his head and walk
ed on. He again stopped abruptly and
went through the same motions, while a
number of spectators on the other side of
the street laughed at his discomfiture.
The cause was some young ladies who sat
in a window above and threw a coin or
a piece of tin, to which was attached a
string, onto the sidewalk and then rapid
ly withdrew it. The impression 'created
in the mind of the person who hears the
jingle is that they have dropped some
money, but feel like "Bo-peep who lost

This waist is designed to meet the requirements oi ladies who
cannot, comfortably, wear a stifi and rigid corset, while it can he warn
with as much comfort as an ordinary dress waist. It will give the
eame elegance of contour as the heaviest boned corset in the market,
while the stays are so arranged that they will give support to the back
and spine and in nowise interfere with the freedom and comfort
ol the wearer. The weight of the clothing is transferred from the
hips to the shoulders by means of the uhoulder-straps, whith are ad
justable to suit any form or length of waist.
We have these waists in White, Grey and Gold and the price to
