The heat for the past three Jays has
been prickly.
A prominent citizen declares that the
future postoflice will be on the west half
of block 11, lot 24.
If you wish premium lists of the
State Fair, apply to R. B. Windham,
member of the State Board of Agriculture.
The reporter caa now pass through
the waiting room of the B. & M. depot
and safely dot down the names of all the
patient people as Omaha passengers with
a little variation.
Mr. Nathan, who has been in the dry
goods business here for several years, has
declared his intention of selling out and
moving to another city in which to trans
act business. They are now making
cheap sales and departing with their
goods at any price.
"Work has been commenced to remove
the telephone posts out to a sufficient dis
tance to allow the building of a twenty
foot side walk, the building of which is
soon to be commenced. About the time
the paving, sewer and sidewalk building
ia about half done, the city will remind
one of Pompeii.
The Omaha merchants would reap
rich harvest if they would law a mtor
line between here and Omaha and get it
in shape for carrying passengers. The
Plattsmouth business men would then be
obliged to move their place of business
to that city and they would probably sel
more goods to Plattsmouth customers.

of his surviving any great length of time
and he may not live longer than 3 weeks.

The ball game which was played
yesterday between the strikers and bach
elors terminated in favor of the strikers
by a score of 10 to 14. The only reason
we can state for the defeat of the bachel

their lady admirers. If the latter club
had had that encouragement, we could
not entertain a doubt as to victory for
About twelve young people, provid
ed with fishing tackle, started about 10
o'clock for the fishing quaiter on the
Platte river, familiarly known as "The
Dump." The party is going under the
style of a leap year party and the young
ladies have promised to care for their
friends, assist them when fishing by ex
tractin" hooks from the mouths of the
fish, taking care of the fish, &e. Partic

Mack Jones who was examined by
the commissioners here a few days ago
nnd sent to the Lincoln insane asylum,
died in Lincoln yesterday. W. D. Jones
received the news of his death and start
ed immediately for that place, and
brought the corpse back this morning.
The funeral will take place this afternoon
from the residence of Douglas Jones at 4
o'clock. .The deceased had been sick for
some time, the insanity being caused by
softening of the brain. He is a cousin of
Mr. W. D Jones.
A prominent gentleman of this city
and an extensive grain dealer, whenever
the reporter asks for any news, he invari
ably insists that "it's a warm day," and
if he cannot be present on the streets him
self to impart the information, he leaves
the word with a friend to deliver. If
we considered it neccessary to publish
ucu news, to make.people believe it, it
would afford us great pleasure, but now
we prom'ue him to inform the people
through the paper of the first cold day
that comes if he will help us out. It's a
cold day when it isn't warm.
Last night the drum in the ears of
the music loving people was struck rath
er forcibly by the sounds of melody which
wafted on the cool and soothing mid
night air, as their possessors were build
ing air castles in the land of nod. The
first thoughts that presented themselves
upon awakening were: "What are those
sounds I hear? "What mcancth this?
Wonder if they mean that for me? Had
I better go t9 the window and give them
a clap of the hand? What do they ex
pect me to do if they are thinking of me?
I have nothing in the house to give them."
By that time the mechanics of the staff
have completed their invigorating efforts.
The ladies and gentlemen we have refer
ence to were on the streets last nigfkt un
til a late hour, serenading their friends
and favoring all within a hundred y
of their different locations, witn m
which they were capable of rendeiing.

their effort and request them to call on

We acknowledge the receipt of a
ticket to the Omaha Fair and Exposition
to be held at Omaha Sept. 3rd to 8th in
clusive. Dr. Schildknccht removed a needle
from the heel of Max Chapman, son Of
Judge Chapman, this morning. The
needle was driven Into his heel full
length which caused him intense agony.
Miss Etta Schildknccht, of Green
wood, daughter of Dr. Schildknccht, re
turned home yesterday with her mother
who went to Greenwood to accompany
her. She is suffering from very poor
health at present and is here under treat
ment of her father. "
Almost every day of late some for
eigu lady has arrived at our depot and
been unable, without considerable
trouble, to ascertain the whereabouts
of their friends. This morning a Danish
lady by the name of Maryanna Stienholtz
and four little children arrived. From
what was understood she inquired for
her husband. Some men who heard her
speak the name say that there is a man
working in the shops by that name. She
looked very much fatigued and imparted
the information in a way that she had
been on the road six weeks.
A prominent citizen of this place and
an acurate mathematican met with what
Bome'people would term a misfortune ow
ingjto a miscalculation. The gentleman we
have reference to got his rig in readiness
and drove to the campmeeting which
was held at Eight Mile Grove last Sun
day. On their return the nag exhibited
signs of a thirsty disposition and the
gentleman took advantage of the first op
portunity to water his horse. He drove
up to a farm house by which there was a
well and pulled up a bucket of water.
The lady of the house informed him that
they were not in the habit of U6ing that
water for watering their horses, and re
quested him, if he wished to water his
horse on their premises to take the buck
et of water he had drawn, go to a pump
about a hundred yards distant where they
generally watered there horses, and prime
the pump with the water he had drawn
It is needless to say the gentleman was
afforded a little displeasure on account
of this, but nevertheless he lugged his
burden of bucket and water to said
pump and gracefully, but not willingly
turned the water into it and pumped the
same amount again for his horse. If he
had gone through the motions and left
the water on the outside it might have
suited him much better. He has notjyet
recovered from the burden of disatisfac
tion of having complied with the whims
of an obstinate woman.

"New Letter of Jnuius."
During the war of 1ST0 there was published
anonymously a brochure called "A New Let
ter o! Junius," the author of which was M.
Alexandre Dumas, Jr., which contained till
remarkable prophecy concerning the then
crown prince of Germany: "And when
Prince Fritz shall wish to resist the current,
and shall say, 'But I, Lord, have always
loved peace,' tho Lord shall answer him, say
ing, 'I have declared equally guilty those
who do evil and those who permit it to be
done in their sight. I have made thee hand
some and good, not solely that thou mightest
make reparation for the paternal crimes, but
that thou mightest prevent them. Thy pun
ishment shall be to die without having done
good.' " Figaro.

Fair Maidens of Circassia.
I met but few women of the pare Cir
cassian race iq (be Balkan peninsula, as
these people have been removed over into
Asia Minor and colonized on land there,
The days are gone by when Circassian girls
are openly sold into slavery to the Turks,
although, like many another thing in Turkey
that he law professes not to recognize, the
practice is by no means stopped.
A few years ago the Circassians sold their
daughters and sisters to the highest bidder,
with the same cold blooded bargaining that
might characterize the sale of a horse. The
more lovely the girl the higher the price.
Far from objecting to this commercial trans
action, the Circassian girls' lamentations
were loud and long when they learned that
their chances of being bought and carted oil
to Stamboul were lessened by the edict of
the porta making their purchase illegal. This
transfer from their uneventful village life to
some gilded harem at the capital was the
goal of their ambition. But after all it is
hardly necessary to use the past tense in
treating of the Circassian giil. If she is
beautiful she is as certain to drift to Stam
boul nowadays as she ever was; her fathers
and brothers are just as unscrupulous, she is
just as willing, and the law is practically a
dead letter. Thomas Stevens in Woman.
