to learn that we are to lose as valuable a
citizen from our midst.
We are pleased to acknowledge the
receipt of the Denyer liepublican through
the kindness of Mr. Frank Carruth who
is a delegate from this city attending the
deep water convention, being held at
Denver. The paper gives full proceed
ings ot tne convention, but as our space
is limited we are unable to publish it.
A popular colored republican known
as "Ned'' in this city made the follow

The "Twelve Temptations," an
tensive exhibition which has been
a temptation to many of Plattsmouth's
citizens All who have seen the great
snow pronounce it oeyoml any imagina
tion and were more than pleased with
the sights. Several went to Omaha this
morning to take in the matinee there
ine "iiitties worm company' is
haying its lithographs posted up con
spicuously on the different bill boards.
This company has an extensive reputa
tion, having traveled over the entire
country. Those who have seen the play
speak very highly of the drama, and we
feel confident that their visit to this city
will prove to le a profitable one.
The company will play here on the even
ing of the 8th.
The B. & M. will sell round trip
tickets to Omaha, during the great fair,
which is to be held there from the 3rd to
the 8th of September, at h half-fare for
the round trip from all stations in Ne
braska, good to return until Sept. 10th
The siege of Sebastopol, the great mili
tary spectacular conception and pyrotech
nical display, will be produced nightly
during the fair and on alternate nights
thereafter during September.
Only a few days since, we published
a list of names of the old veterans who
yoted for Harrison in 1840, but as the
ncmes printed were secured by advertis
ing, a few of as prominent ones have
been received within the last few days, of
which we are pleased to make special
mention. The gentlemen we have refer
ence to, are still strong supporters of
Harrison in 1883: O. S. Cooley, of
Louisville; A. Cole, Plattsmouth; Mr.
Macdougall, of Manly and Wm. Young,
of Rock Bluffs precinct.
The seven year old daughter of Mr.
Cbas. Spangler, who resides about two
miles south of the city, met with what
proved to be a very painful and serious
accident yesterday afternoon. While a
cider mill was in oferation and she was
playing around it, she dropprd her hand
into the machine. The finger of her
right hand were so badly cut and crushed
tbut her physician thinks it will be
necessary to amputate the third and
fourth fingers. While under the treat
ment, it was found necessary to adminis
..t an express parcel to
the ILbbald Oi7.ce this afternoon, taxed
Our thanks are due Mr. Eli as Sage,

A Mr. Both well, of Topeka, Kansas,
has accepted an inyitation to act as gen
eral secretary of the Y. M. C. A. for this
city. lie ia expected to arrive next Mon
day or Tuesday and commence duty.
The Y. M. C. A. of this city has. durintr
its short term of existence, gained for it
self an extensive reputation throughout
Mr. J. A. Archibald, who represents
the Wrought Iron Range Company in this
state, is in the city today. He will put
in the company's improved heating furn
aces in the basements of several of our
largest and best houses. Messrs. Wm.
Neville, F. S. White and Timothy Clark
have contracted for the heaters. They
are said to be the most serviceable of any
in the market.
A base ball club from the city of
Murray, which has secured for itself from
the joking crowd of boys this city is in
fested with, the name of "Cornfield Ca
naries," arrived in the city this morning
with fire in their eyes and determined ex
pression clothed visages, prepared to
meet a club of this city, known as the
"Clippers." They will play on the fair
ground base ball diamond this afternoon,
The Clippers should not break their rec
ord. The train (No. 5) which now errives
here at 7:30 a. m., from the east, will, in
the future, arriye fifteen minutes sooner,
at 7:lo, leaving Pacific Junction at 7
o'clock. To the many who express con
siderable dissatisfaction because the train
now passes here at such an early hour and
frequently miss the train, this information
will surely not be the the most consoling.
Probably some of the alarm clock dealers
have been negotiating with the B. & M.
Several complaints have been heard
from some of the firemen since the report
of the Nebraska City celebration which
was printed in yesterday's issue. We did
not hold ourselves up ns any authority on
the table which was printed at the foot
of the report, but simply made the state-
ment as we hadreceived it
from a few,
as we mentioned yesterday
stattd that a majority of the firemen and
and those who went, thoroughly enjoyed
the day's festivities.
A free minstrel show company held
down a platform on the corner of Fouith
and Main streets last night. That num
ber of the population which could not
put in an appearance, were ceartainly
sick or disabled, for a larger crowd has
not been seen in any locality ou the
streets for some time. The company of
colored men, fiye in number, are employ
ed by a Dr. Turner, who gives the per
formance as an advertising scheme and
to attract a crowd. It is a good one
and must invariably draw a large aud
ience. Their concert consists of nej
melodies, songs and dances, choruses and
farces, and they are all rendered in a
pleasing style by the funny men. They
afforded considerable amusement for
the appreciative crowd
The dramatic season will open with
"The W orld" at the opera house on next
Saturday night, September 8th. This
company and play is so well known by
our, theater going people that but little
need to be said. The following we clip
from the Baltimore American: "The
stirring and ever-popular melodrama,
"The World," was given last night, with
Mr. J. Z. Little in the chief role, for the
first time this season in Baltimore. The
first production last night was a highly
successful one and got a very enthusiastic
reception from the audience, which wss a
large one and intensely interested in the
piay. jjir. juutie was supported oy a
1 r . t "ni . i
strong company selected by himself, and
the dramatic situations of the piece were
presented with great power, and elicited
enthusiastic applause from the spectators.
The scenery formed a verv imnor-
tant feature of the production. The
raft scene, the sinking thiD. the
wharf scene and others were presented in
a realistic and startling manner, which
called forth the warmest approbation of
the audience. The play is a strong at
traction and will probably have a very
successful week's run." Baltimore Amer

sale next Tuesday Morning. Price 93c.

rinra I7ow let sa'aea what tkos
eacce ara. In the first place, the air of the
mountains la less dense than that of tb sea
shore. It contains a leas amount of oxygen
In any given quantity, and hence, In order
that the blood may be duly oxygenized, the
respiration must be more active. A person
living In mountainous regions, breathing, as
he does, more actively than one living on a
lower plane, has more fully developed lungs
and a larger chest. It would seem proper,
therefore, that those who have narrow
chesta and a tendency to lung diseases will
do well to spend a month or two in the sum
mer in high altitudes and in climbing moun
tain sides. I have frequently witnessed the
good results of such a course of life. The
greater part of New Mexico, for instance. Is
from 5,000 to 7,000 feet above the level of the
sea. I have seen many weak, puny, narrow
chested men and women who, at their homes
on the seaboard, panted violently from the
slightest exertion, become after a few months'
residence in Santa Fe strong and ruddy, with
their breathing capacity greatly Increased,
and able to walk briskly two or three miles,
or climb up to the top of a steep mesa with
out losing their wind.
Again, the air of mountains possesses a
greater amount of ozone than that of the
seashore. What particular effect ozone may
have upon the health of man has not yet been
clearly made out. In some directions it seems
to bo absolutely injurious. There is good
evidence to show that it is often productive
of bronchial affections and especially influ
eiiza. During an epidemic of this disease an
increased amount of ozone has been found in
the atmosphere. On the other hand, there is
no doubt that ozone is a great purifier of the
atmosphere, ana it is doubtless owing to the
increased amount of this agent in the air of
mountain regions that its salubrity is In
great measure due. I have subjected putres
cent meat and vegetables to the action of
ozone, and invariably the bad smell was at
once corrected. It may, therefore, be re
gards a as the destroyer of certain germs
which are capable of producing disease. Dr.
William A. Hammond.
Precautions In Bathing
We have already called attention in Science
to the danger of injury to the ear in bathing
as described by Dr. Samuel Sexton. The
London Lancet, in the following language,
directs attention to still another danger. The
bathing season, though not yet advanced, has
already been marked by the levy of that fatal
tribute which year by year is exacted of the
ignorant and the indiscreet. The recent
death by drowning of a young man in the
public baths at Poplar suggests one cause of
accident which is too apt to be overlooked.
The deceased had entered the water soon after
partaking of a hearty meal, and the fatal
result was attributed to cerebral congestion
due to sudden immersion at such a time.
V hat may have been the particular ap
pearances observed after death In this case
we have no means of judging, but it may be
well to consider shortly some reasons why
the practice of bathing soon after meals Is
justly condemned. Effusion of blood in or
upon the brain, when it occurs in such cases
as that already referred to, is probably not a
primary cause of mischief, but rather a con
sequence founded on other circulatory and
nervous disturbances. It is an evidence of
eclampsia, and the physiological basis upon
which this is founded consists in that inward
diversion of blood toward the alimentary
tract which characterizes normal digestion;
the other tissues, notably the brain, being at
the same time proportionally anemic, and
the action of heart and lungs impeded by a
distended stomach. A natural result of cold
immersion at this stage is to encourage or in
duce a tendency to syncope, to concentrate
surface blood still more about the central
organs, including the heart, which, especially
if at all unequal to its duties, labors ineffectu
ally to readjust the blood pressure, and finally
succumbs with lungs and venous system en
gorged by passive congestion. It is as if an
enemy occupied the outworks of a fortress
left for a time unguarded, and forthwith
paralyzed the resistance of the citadel. It is
best, therefore, to wait for at least an hour
and a half or two hours after a good meal
before bathing. Science.
