Mr. L. C. Curtis, who is an employe
of the B. & M. at their round house here
met with a very painful accident yester
day morning while in the act of using a
trolley for the purpose of removing some
machinery. He caught hold of a rope
which had become fastened in some way
to some cost wheels, and as he did so his
band was carried into the machinery,
cutting the end of his little finger off.
He lost the nail and a small piece of the
bone with the flesh.

Our patrons who read the weekly
Herald speak favorably of the quality
of music which we publish in each issue.
The weekly circulation has increased con

charged for the yearly subscription to the
weekly, and besides it, the paper contains
every news item which is afloat. The pa-
p2r is worthy of a trial and we feel confi

result. Every effort is also being made
on the daily to push it to the front. It
is encouraging to hear daily that the pa

want the news, they now look for the

way they may and we promise faithfully
to still improve with what encouragement
Mr. Philip Treatch, a well-to-do far
mer and known extensively in this vicin
ity, who lives about eight miles nor li
west of the city, near Concord, met with
a very painful accident yesterday after
noon which he is not apt to recover from
immediately. He and his boy were en
gaged in loading wheat on a wagon, Mr.
Treatcb placing it on the wagon as it was
thrown to him. " The horses became
frightened in some way and started to
rnn away. As the lines had been thrown
on the ground Leside the horses, he was
unable to stop them while he remained on
the wagon. Ho jumped to tbo ground,
and as he weighs about 205 pounds,
could not drop easily on his feet, and

name attached to several communications
which were printed in the Journal some

now holding down a goyernment sit at

that place and draws a salary for deliver

ing another game which is to be played
on the base ball grounds on Saturday
next, between the Plattsmouth club and
the Jetter & Young club of South Oma
ha, one of the best clubs in the Omaha
city league, and it is expected that as
close and as hard a game as has been
played this season will be witnessed. Th
complete club will be at home for this
game. Mr. Sam Patterson, who has been
in Pennsylvania for some time and who
was absent when the last two games wen
played, will he on hand t'ns time and
help the boys. He and Mr. W. Miller,
who has returned home to join the club
until the first of September, are acknowl
edged to be two of the best players in
the club and it is thought that with their
assistance, in the coming game, that vic
tory will surely fall to Plattsmouth. The
boys arc all eagre to come to the front as
is noticeable by their perseverance in
practicing nearly every afternoon during
such warm weather as we have had of
late. The game will be called at :15 p.
m., sharp, and those desiring seats on the
grand stand in order to keep in the shade
should go early as there will surely be a
large crowd to witness this game. Every
body take an afternoon and assist the
club and be entertained for a short time
as well as you ever were before. Admis
sion 25 cents.
Mr. Phil Harrison, one of our jolly
transfer men, expressed himself this
morning in a way that influenced the re
porter to believe that he was gratified to
know, more than ever before, that he
still possesses his natural equilibrium,
-ilthough he states he narrowly escaped a
shock which might have broken several
bones for him. Yesterday afternoon,
about 3 o'clock, he backed his wagon to
some freight cars standing on what is
known as the town track, at the foot of
Main street, for the purpose of unloading
salt. He had succeeded in getting about
eleven barrets into his wagon and was
tbout ready to go in the car and roll out
another, when suddenly he found him
self flying through the air. AVhen he re
covered himself enough to know that h
was still uninjured, he looked to find his
wagon ditributed in several pieces by the
side ofjtlie track, and the mules, whitl
were attached to the wagon, struggling
to pull away part of it. His location was
changed so quickly that he could not tell
how it was done. The accident was
caused by a train of cars coming
against the stationaiy ones with such ter-
riftic force that it sent them down the
track for the distance of about two blocks.
The cars which came in from the south
side of the yard were uncoupled and
kicked in by the engine before it reached
t'ie switch. s there were no brakes ou
some of the cars, they could not be stop

A Remarkable Family-
"The Gazette has not made any attempt
to unearth the veteran voters who sup
ported the nominees of 1840, but inci
dentally a somewhat remarkable survival
iaa been brought to light. Joseph Smith,
who lives at No. 411 A avenue. West,
not only voted for Harrison at Mt. Ver
non, Ohio, in 1840, but is remarkable for
more meritorious achievements. That
vote of 1840 was the first one he was en
titled to cost but since then he has al
ways voted the straight whig or republi
can ticket. He was one of the earliest
organizers of the republican party in
Ohio, and when the war broke out he was
one of the seven brothers who shouldered
a musket in the union cause. The total
term of service which these seven broth
ers saw during the war, was twenty-eight
years, one of them enlisting four times.
Mr. Smith came to Iowa fifteen years ago,
and to Cedar Rapids in 1880. He heard
Harrison speak here five years ago. and
at that time said he would like to vote
for him, consequently he is somewhat
tickled to think that that wish is about
to be realized. Not the least remarkable
of the circumstances connected with
remarkable family is that Mr. Smith
the father of seven sons who are living.
and six of whom will be old enough to
vote for Harrison and Morton. "They'l
da it. too." the old man replied, "and if
the other one was of age he would do
the same." If any town can produce a
more remarkable family than this we
would like to hear from it. We have
only dealt with two generations, though
the family in this lineal descent had rep
rcsentatives in all our war?, and did gal
hint service." Cedar Rapids (Iowa) Ga
This Smith family is as usual large
and they are our kind. Our O. P. Smith
of O. P. Smith & Co., is one of these
boys mentioned. Two others are in Ne
hraska, three in Iowa and one in Kansas,
the name is seldom found at roll call in
police courts, jails or penetentiaries, and
of course all of that name in the past
have been identified with the republican
party. While we have great regard for
O. P., and like his presence in Platts
mouth, still it w ould be a grand thing
if all the Smith family were located in
New York and Indiana until after No
