It is reported the Sherman Gering
democratic delegation issued from
Plattsmouth to form a democratic club
in Weeping Water, Saturday, was more
successful in that point than they were a
few days ago when only five men and
two boys were present at their meeting.
A large number met to hear the How of
eloquence from those two gentlemen, and
we learned that the democrats of that
place were quite fascinated by the ora
tors from here. They were not quite so
fortunate on their return, as they came
in contact with an obstacle which left its
mark on them and their entire outfit. As
Mr. Sherman has lost all sense of smell,
apparently, he came through all right,
enjoying the disgust cf his companions.
We were not informed who the driver
was, but he hit a mark that told, and we
give him great credit. The obstacle we
speak of was in the form of an animal,
the presence of which is always recog
nized by a strong smell. During the day
it may have occupied the road, turning
away everything and everybody that
might rhance te pass that way. En
couiaged by its success that far, when
the night came it still retained its posi
tion as monarch of the road. The dele
gation as they came along were well
aware that such an animal was in the im
mediate vicinity, but did not know that
when they would move along a few
mere paces that they would rest with
still more assurance. The horses stepped
on the animal, or the wagon ran over it,
causing it to we its only weapon of de
fense. The wagon which was returned
to the Bonner stables still retains a
strong odor, and Mr. Jones, the pro
prietor, is still under the impression tha'
the delegation must surely have been
skunked at Weeping Water.

A HICHT OF ADVENTURE.
A Thrilling Experience Four Young
People of Plattsmouth Had.
No Serious Harm Done.
A quartette left the city last Saturday tj
night with the intention of taking a snort
sail on the Muddy Missouri ami pay a
visit to Iowa, but since their return, no
such intention will ever occupy a mo-
ntent'8 consideration. The difficulties
undergone by them could " not be fully
expressed by word. The explorers who
have courage enough to visit the coast of
Africa, never encountered more untold
.lnnrrprs than the nartv we speak or.
s;nce they have all arrived on Nebraska
soil in safety with a few bruises and
scratches, their names are witheld for
fWr nf nhiection. but the stOrV 13 too
good to keep, hence we publish it in as
- - j
brief a m. inner as possible and give their
full adventure so that it may not fall
frhort of the comprehension of any. Siuec
such an experience has fallen to the lot
f thnm hrnv! neonle. should another
war break out in the Soudan, their servi
ces as soldieis would prove efficient.
They bade farewell to Nebraska terra
firmii nnil moved nlowlv out onto the
treacherous Missouri about o clock.
Everything apparently moved smoothly
along until the land of the welnfeet was
rnr-liril when tlm first of a hundred or
more difficulties presented itself.
The gentleman who had charge of the
expedition was the first to experience any
of the trouble. When Iowa had been
reached and the young ladies handed
from the boat, an attempt was made by
the gentleman we speak of to secure the
vessel. In his efforts to pull the boat on
shore far enough to secure it, he fell from
the log, on which he was a monarch, in
to the quick sand. He was rapidly sink
in into the treacherous soil when the
following plea was heard: "Will a der
rick help me out should one be erected ?"
Not much material could be found at a
convenient distance which would prove
serviceable in erecting a derrick, but
however, in less time than it takes to
write it, one was put in shape, (the ma
terial of which we will not speak of here)
which did valuable service just then and
there, and by its assistance the gentleman
was extricated from the miry soil with
out much trouble. Such a derrick, erect
ed in such a short time, did good work,
and if any other party should entertain
any doubts as to similar trouble should
they ever wish to make a trip to web-foot
land, they should take such a piece of
usefulness along and be prepared. After
the victim was helped from the mud, he
presented a pitiful condition to the party
The party had made up their minds to
attend a concert which was to be given
sit a school house about ono mile from
there, hut such a misfortune threw a.dam
per on their expectations, for all knew,
and especially the victim, that it wou'd
occupy some time before he could feel
comfortable anvwhere. As the sun was
wliininrr l.ri.rlulv at the time, a bright
o " "
iilea struck one of the party. "If we
will straight-en him out in the sunlight
for a short time, the mud will probably
be dry enough to brush before the time
the concert is to commence, and he will
probably be able to make himself pre
sentable." We were not informed as to
the length of time it required to shake
the mud off and get him in shape, but
we learned that they all attended the
concert spoken of.
The entertainment was given in a
school house. The school had just con
cluded its term and had just entered their
vacation they were holding their com
mencement exercises that evening. Con
siderable amusement was afforded the
visitors by the fun making party who
furnished the entertainment. The visitors
were early enough to secure reserved seats,
however, taking seats at the front of the
auditory. A pleasant reception was giv
en them and all were invited to take part
in the evening's exercises. All refused
with the exception of one, who, to the
best of his ability, rendered a piece which
they apparently were well pleased with
We cannot say that our friends fell to
;iny more difficulties while there, and un
til well on their return trip did another
obstacle come in their way. The river
was reached again in safety, the boat
loosed, a farewell look given to the shore
of web-feet, and the party again on the
stream moving in the direction of their
home. Any who have had any experi
ence in rowing against the current of tho
Missouri need no more information than
just that an attempt was made that night
to overcome it. They had landed near
the bridge on the Iowa side just where
the current is the strongest. The oarsmen
worked hard to pull up stream, until the
perspiration streamed from them, with
little progress, so, realizing the fact that if
they did not goon mr.ke an effort to cross
the river their already overtaxed strength
would soon play out. They turned their
boat for this shore and worked as stal
wart men never worked before. While
nearing the shore on this side, they were
moving nearer the bridge, and before
reaching Nebraska they were almost un
der it. The inexperienced meu to hard
J work, after such a "pull for the shore
act, required a rest. Their nerves were
uneasy, their strength was not strong, and
to size up the party one could say nothing
more in their favor than that they wero
all in a bad coudition and needed assis
tance just then and there.
To row against the current on this side
of the river and get home the same night.
kw was impossible, and they were
,, t , t know .ilflt van to pursue.
Tne BUore was covered with heavy brush
wn;cu wa8 grown to considerable height;
iank looked too steep in some places
to navigate. The thought that they
would be obliged to tow the boat along
the shore as far as the B. & M. depot,
where they started from, was almost as
discouraging to them, 1 with 6o little
strength. They were well aware that
that was the only way left for them, and
after a rest and a little strength had ben
regained, efforts were 'made by the
two gentlemen to work along the shore
and pull the boat after them. A portion
of the way, where the brush was not very
tall and strong, they succeeded in making
quite satisfactorily, but some of the way
they found almost impossible to overcome.
One would do as best as he could m
pulling while the other acted as pilot
with an oar in keeping the boat from the
shore. While in a difficulty in a clump
of bushes, the pilot, not paying much at
tention to the oar, -did not notice it run
ning against a 6nag. No sooner than it
struck it, the oar was knocked from its
location and the vounir man who was
leaning against it with what little strength
remained, sent tumbling over the rocks
and snags into the water.
If the sun had been shining as bright
lv at that time he would certain
ly have presented a more piti
fnl sutnenrnnco. but as it was, he
crawled out from his uncomfortable lo
cation without saying very much and
started to work again, realizing that the
bark had been rubbed from his body in
several places. Several similar experi
ences were realized by both gentlemen
before the desired point was reached, and
we do not care to tell how many bruises
they received on the way. but we learned
they were numerous enough not to ere te
any pleasant sensations. At one time
when one of the gentlemen took courage
to try and manage the boat with the oars
a second time, a strong current which he
had not quite expected at that time came
against the boat, which, if it had not
been for the capability of the oarsman,
would have sent him and the boat back
to the starting point acain. lie managed
to get it in to shore, and the towing act
commenced aarain. After numerous other
rliflicnlties. the party with their boat
, 7 " a
reach the early starting point.
Although they were quite sore from
over-exertion, they seemed to have bten
pleased with the trip and say they had a
high time, but do not wish to take s
similar trip again for a week or so on ac
count of weakness.

' Weather Prophecy.
The art of foretelling the kind of
weather will be in the future is still un
certain. Many predictions still fails.
What with the aid of observencea scat
tered as they are here and there through
out the country and with the aid .of
meteorology instruments and the tele
graph lines etc , they still failed in many
precictions. It is n wonder though that so
many predictions prove corrcl. It is
not far from 70 per cent. But with more
observers at least in every county and
with more thorough observance of the
ispect of the sky, clouds and winds etc.,
the predictions would prove nearly cor
rect. Observers whose occupations call
them to be out of doors can easily fore
tell the kind of weather, storms, frost
and wind etc., if he but keep his ears and
eyes open looking at certain kind of
clouds and at the general appearencc of
the clouds and sky, colar etc. he can get
used to telling pretty certain what it will
be the next half day and sometimes two
or three days ahead. If he but be care
ful in observiug he can tell what kind of
storms are coming, whether there is go-
in!? to be heavv wind or not. or much
rain and sometimes when it will stop,
It is sometimes amusing to see some peo
ple take their umberella and gum coat in
anticipation of rain, because there is no
clouds, when its just the other way of
being fair weather. There is no use
depending on signs etc. As some will
say the dogs eat grass, the hogs in the
pen arc running around, and most other
such signs the signs of rain. No reason
in it. Nonsene. To say that the spiders
spun their webs over the plowed ground
previous night is a sign of dry weather,
may be taken for its woith: reasoning
in this way that no rain will fall to in
jure their webs. The sure way is keep
insr ones eves and ears open and notice
for oneself. Thus nearly in the same
wav can one tell what president will be
elected next fall; whether protection will
win; whether rum power be pulverized
and at last and not to say the least
whether the county seat be mounted on
wheels and be located here at Weeping
Water some time in the near future.

I would write in that way for any one 1 would
consider this request from Boston, but I
simply can't. An English magazine offered
me a large price, which 1 refused, and then
a still larger, which 1 again refused. Then
they sent me a blank check, and asked me to
fill it out to my own satisfaction. But I re
turned that also. I cannot bring myself to
write for periodicals. If I publish a book,
and people choose to buy it, that proves they
want to read my work. But to have them

me that is to be an uninvited guest. My
