Mr. John Hartigau, who has been
confined to his home for the last three
weeks with intermittent fever, is able to
be around again and shake hands with
Lis many friends.
The wind has been blowing from
the east for the past twelve hours and the
resuit is, our friend Val Burkel, has re
turned from his Ohio visit. He did not
sail back, but came by rail.
Mr. O. P. Smith has received a new
machine a milk-shaker and ice-shaver
' combined. It is cpuite a complete piece
of mechanism, and has every appearance
of being able to do great work when a
chance is afforded.
The Chicago market must have ad
vanced to a considerable extent and a
higher price set on western stock. There
was a train of fifteen coaches passed
through here yesterday en route for that
city, and since the reduction in fare, large
trains pass through every day.
We were pleased to learn this morn
ing that Mrs. Hampton, who has been so
seriously afflicted with typhoid fever fur
the past few weeks, is at present on the
convalescent road and if her recovery
continues as speedy as it ha3 for the last
f jff days, she will, in a short time, be

Mrs. Coverdale disposed of her en
tire household effects by auction last
Saturday afternoon, and has gone to Mis
souri Valley to join her husband, who is
at present reaping a rich harvest from a
thriving business at that city. "We were
norry to lose them from our midst, as
they wero both well know in the city and
made good citizens. They at one time
had posession of the Perkins house and
after leaving there made the house on the
corner of Fourth and Main streets their
residence and have kept boarders at that
place for a number of years.
Mr. Daniel Burns has started, out
with a subscription paper ia aid of the
boy, JeJd Vance, who was S3 seriously
injured by a locomotive some time ago.
People have been very kind in offcrin
assistance so far as nursing the unfortunate
lad. "We consider it no more than the
duty of any citizen who is able to con
tribute a small amount, if not very much,
in helping them to take care of him and
bring him through all right. The doctor
now thinks he will stand a good chance
of recovery and if the citizens subscribe
a little they can greatly help in that way
The following paragraph was clip
ped from the Omaha World, which cer
tainly shows that our base ball boys did
themselves proud with the Council Bluffs
team which played here a few days ago :
"Manager Kipliogerof the Council Bluffs
club is highly pleased with the ball game
played by the Bluffs boys at Plattsmouth.
He considers the game the best of the
season so far. At the close of the ninth
inning the score stood 5 to 5. Three
more innings were played aud the kcote
tod 6 to 5 in favor of the Bluffs c'ub.
During the whole game the Bluffs club
made only four errors. The boys were
highly pleased with the manner in which
they were entertained by their Platts
mouth friends. The same night they
were serenaded by the Plattsmouth Glee
club. "With this game Manager Kipling-
er severs bis connection with the club,
not because of any dissatisfaction, but be
cause his basiness duties will be such af
ter July 1st, as to prevent his giving the
' '.dub nafficient time and attention. It has
not yet been decided whdthe new mana-
. Sixteen coaches paired through the
city yesterday, for Chicago. The people
will no doubt return with brighter faces
than they had when they passed through
here on their way there. Wo are anxious
to know who will be the nominees, but we
feci quite confident. All that is neces
sary to secure a republican president is to
nominate a man on that" side and there
will be no doubt but that he will sail
straight to the White House, run out the
democrats and let the people know there
is something going on occasionally. Of
course Orovcr did well enough in a way.
He took in the country pretty much, shook
hands with thousands because he was
president, and now asks the people to
send him back for a second term s he
will be able to say he has attended to
some business at least. We congratulate
him on having had such an enjoyable
time, but it costs the country too much.
That a republican president will be elect
ed, is a foregone conclusion.
A plug hat, without any resemblance
to either a democrat or republican style
was seen floating around Main street yes
terday morning. The name which is oc
casionally dropped onto a freak: "What
is it," coulde appropriately applied to
the hat. It may probably have been
adopted by the individual as an indepen
dent, as it was about a half-way article.
We can not accurately describe it and the
color we have never seen anything like
it. He may have bought a pair of ten
cent suspenders in an Omaha "hand-me-
down-store" and had the head apparel
furnished gratis as a slight token of the
counter-thumpers appreciation of his
patronage. We feel duty bound through
the interest taken in the sore-eyed people
who witnessed the sight . yesterday, to
warn him not to apper in pnblic again
with such an emblem of politics.
About t'ic only use we could assign
for it would be to use it
ni a bread van, to secure a surplus loaf
or two for his own use. It had every
appearance as though it had been expand
ed or contracted as the head required it
about the part which surrouuded the cra
nium. As the bearer of the article
dropped himself in front of one of the
stylish clothing houses and did not move
a nerve for an hour or so, people took
him for a sign which the clothier had re
cently purchased aud set out. This pro
voked the proprietor to vexation and has
since caused him considerable anxiety
as a gradual relaxation in business has
been noticeable since the mistake. Our
reporter did not remain there long en
ough to see how long a visit he made,
but judging frem the time he occupied
in coming in that morning, the evening
greeted him in his efforts to make his
escape from the curious gaze of the citi
zens he came in range of.
Perhaps a sadder or more affective
sight will never be furnished for the eyes
of man than a great many of our citizens
witnessed yesterday afternoon. It was a
cortege of citizens called upon to per
form the solemn duty of burying their
dead. The Herald was sorry to learn
of so many being so affected over the
matter, but more than a few were
called upon to perform the obsequies,and
many a head in the procession was hung
in deep regret which made a deep im
pression on the spectators. Several re
marked: "It's the saddest sight I ever
witnessed," and many tears were seen in
the eyes of the brave men who stood by
and took in the solemn proceedings. Mr.
Neville who has suffered untold misery
on account of this death, showed the
deepest mark3 of bereavement. It is
needless to say he will retain them, for
such a blow would certainly mave the
most heardened heart and wring from
their eves tears of sorrow. We regret
very much to be obliged to chronicle
such & sad affair, for it will no doubt
cast a gloom over ths whole mass of
bright faces which our city has the honor
of being blessed with; however, we ex
tend to Mr. Neville our sympathies in
his untold bereavement, and trust that af-
his return from a trip or visit to a health
ier climate that he will return to the city
again much recruited in health, and we
hope that his blighted hopes througli it
may be revived again. Yesterday shortly
afternoon his favorite mule, which he
brought only a thort time ago from the
farm, injured itself so badly that to kill
it was necessary. Not being accustomed
to the ways of the city, or not knowing
how mules of the city acted, this mule
got a little too frisky. It wandered up
in the yicinity of " Hotel Streight," and
as it probably had tired itself out during
the fore part of the day, was making ar
rangements for lodging at that place.
Mr. Streight, the proprietor, it appears,
did not fancy the appearance of the in
truder and firod him. He was a cruel
man. But as Mr. Mule could not per
suade that gentleman to admit him as a
guest, took the road for a bed. lie was
not satisfied with the location, and soon
tried to stand up again, and in making
strenuous efforts to get a good footing,
broke one of his legs immediately below
the second joint. Several doctors were
called to obtain advice as to the best
kind of treatment for him. The owner
of him was horror-stricken when told
that death was the quickest and easiest
way to put an end to the poor fellows
sufferings. He was knocked in the head
a short lime afterwards and, as we stated
before, was conveyed to the Missouri
River for interment, where he now rests.

The New Dally-
The Evening News which was to
have put in an appearance in our midst
todav did not show up. However, the
proprietors, Messrs. Green, Mann and
Dabb, are getting everything in readiness
for operation. The paper will be a four
column, four page daily, and will be
furnished at the rate of about ten cents
per week, Plattsmouth will surely report
itself in good style now with its three
dailies at her back. We would' like to
see the boys prosper in their new adven
ture, and heartily welcome the paper
among us. Plattsmouth does not afford
its newspapers the support it should, but
when three ink fiends light on her all at
once, it may arouse the people to a sense
of their duty.
Since the above notice was written we
have been sorry to learn that the proprie
tors have abandoned the idea of issuing
the proposed Evening News, and it has
died before its birth. The boys were
dissatisfied with the support received and
have conie to the conclusion that Platts
mouth is not as good a newspaper quar
ter as they would desire a location in.
We are sorry to learn of this, but we hope
the boys may find a more suitable loca
tion for the employment of their talents.
We did not learn whether it was their
intention to start a daily in some other
city or not.

Where Fur la Obtained.
"The tur producing countries of the world
are very few ir number," said Mr. UUmann,
"and tbey are rapidly becoming exhausted.
Forty years ago America was the great fur
producer, with the Russian possessions sec
ond. Today Siberia sends out more furs
than any other region, and America, with
the exception of the fur seal, has greatly de
creased. A few fancy skins come from Asia
and Africa, but nearly the whole product is
from high latitudes. Many Arctic countries
are nearly destitute of fur bearing animals,
Qreenland, for instance, while scarcely any
are found on the northern islands. The Ant
arctic regions send none at all, the ice fields
around the South Pole being too barren to
support life of any kind. Thus the field is
confined to North America and Asia, with a
very small supply from Norway and Sweder
and some from European Russia.
" "The American field is most seriously de
nuded, although 1 expect Northwestern
British Columbia and especially the interior
of Alaska will in future immensely increase
their output. In the Asiatic deserts fur bear
ing animals are becoming rarer every year
and the time is not fai distant when furs
of all binds will become a luxury attain
able only by the very rich. In the northern
part of the Chinese dominions and among
the high mountains of Thibet thousands of
bales of fine furs are shipped every year,
but these are taken exclusively by the Chi
nese and do not constitute a factor in the
European market. China is by all means the
best place to dispose of very fine furs, and
three-fourths of the most expensive are
bought by tbn mandarins of that country,
some of whom possess fortunes far exceeding
ip amount anything known in the western
world. . Russia probably conies next and the
remainder of the. high grade furs are sold all
over the world. I look for a great increase
in the output of Alaska, the interior of
which Is almost totally unexplored, but un
der the most favorable conditions the sup
ply will grow smaller and smaller every
year, and it will not be long before the fur
trade will bo a thing of the past." St. Louis
femtnii Love of Fine AppareL
Father McUlynn, the famous ex-priest and
present labor agitptor, said to me that the
love of suitable apparel was not even eradi
cated from the minds of nuns and sisters be
longing to the various orders of his church.
Each of these sort of devotees has a partio
ular uniform, usually somber and calculated
to impair if not destroy the vanity of its
wearer. But Father McGlynn cites the case
of a girl who decided to renounce the world
and devote the rest of her life to religion and
charity in the guise of a sister. She talked
with him on the subject and sought his in
struction as tc the different aim, objects
and duties of the various orders. He told
her all about them, and she went away for
the purpose of deliberation.
A week later she came back and said that
she made a selection of three. Having nar
rowed her choice down thus far, she confided
the fact that she meant to accept out of the
three the one which provided a dress most
becoming to her sty la This was what the
priest called the last remnant of wprldliness
in her. She was ready to give up a luxu
rious home and cut herself off from the so
ciability to which she had become habituated,
but she still desired to dress as well as pos
sible under pious circumstances. Chicago

nbout the cbestnutiness of negro minstrelsy.
Old jokes have been mercilessly lampooned,
and the men who deal in them have come in
for a large share of the abuse. It is not gen
erally known by the public that there are
not a half dozen men in the United States
capable of furnishing gags or other end ma
terial to minstrels, and of these half dozen
probably not one makes a really successful
gag in six months. They can all write songs
or fake up afterpieces or sketches, bqt tbey
cannot give that delightful ring of spon
taneity to a gag which makes it a "go."
Minstrels often try the work of these profes
sional joke makers, but it falls so flat that
invariably a return to the old material is
necessary. Most of the gags you hear are
made by the end men themselves. Some
times a newspaper friend furnishes them a
local suggestion, but it requires the end man's
experience with public taste to put it in
proper shape. Since 1 have been in min
strelsy, which is many years, I cannot recall
many pevy jokes that have survived their
