to pull the pail up, she lost her
balance and fell into the well, a distance
of eighteen feet. It is thought she was
killed by the fall. The mother was al

A remarkable sensation occurred in
this city of the Platte within the last few
days in which one of our brave boys was
about overcome with the scare it afforded
him. The young man takes his meals
and rooms at a house on Oak street. In
his absence one evening some of his
friends quietly made it up among them
selves to put up a job on the fellow,
mors to test his staying qualities than for
any other reason, as he excels as a boaster.
A dummy woman was dressed up and
put in his bed to await his arrival. The
amused crowd waited for him until a
late hour when at last he put in an ap
pearance. He sat contented on the edge
of his bed making preparations for retir
ing. The window-b'.ind was fastened
back so that he could easily discern any
object in his room. When he was about
prepared to emerge himself and close his
peepers for the night, he was startled to
observe the streaming tresses and bright
face of a woman. He never Cott-on, and
in an excited state of mind rushed from
his room, inquiring for a match. None
of his friends in any of the up-stairs
rooms could find a match for him. He
then passed swiftly down the stairs and
rapped on the door of his landlord's
room, exclaiming: "Mr. A ! Mr.
A ! Have you got a match? What
woman is in my room? If you put any
body in my room I want to know who it
is' lie insisted on Mr. A accom
panying him to the room. The landlord
opened the door and walked in, followed
by the terrified one. When the fellow
looked over the shouldcr.of his landlord
and discovered the truth, the relief and

A House for the Habitual Drunkard.
To our knowledge this subject has
never before been introduced to the pub
lic, and for what reason we know not, and
cannot refrain from expressing surprise,
when the daily demand for such a place
must leave an impression on the minds
of all who may walk the streets and wit
ness the degraded state of humanity in
Men, young and old, who have, by iu
ccssant indulgence in taking too freely
such an erroneous step, habituated them
selves to the evils of liquors, and are now
unable to take care of themselves, are
left uncared for by many who are direct
ly interested in their welfare because of
their evil habit. Suchjnen still retain a
chance down in their breasts which would,
if an opportunity was afforded when
these men are made aware of their wreck
Ickhdcss, be taken advantage of and they
would still be men and come to the front
as resectable people. As long as they
are left to themselves and so many temp
tations arc daily set before them, they
will never take advantage of that oppor
tunity. When the people of this country
realize the fact that they can still do
something for their friends when in such
a state of helplessness, they will be more
cgre to give an assisting hand and help
in the good we are about to speak of.
The citizens of Plattsmouth, or any oth
er burg, who 'are directly interested,
should petition the men who represent us
at the capitol, to build houses or work
houses in certain parts where those men
could be kept and employed. When
a man would apparently become so help
1 -S3 that he would become of no use to
himself or anyone else, that is where he
should go if the proper authorities, after
being satisfied with an examination,
should think it a proper place to send
If those men who are now only moder
ate drinkers would think of the place as
their future home, they would certainly
use a little more precaution than any of
them do at present. When the men
would be confined at such a house for a
long enough time to satisfy the author
ties that they could refuse a drink when
offered to them, they should le set free
Such a place would certainly benefit
not only the man and his family, but the
