we can safely speak commendably of
the company and the play. They hold
forth at the opera house to-night.
There is a man in jail to-day who
was arrested last night for stealing a fine
overcoat. He is obstinate when ques
tioned and will not give his name or any
information concerning himself. Sheriff
Kikenbary informs us that he answers
the description of a man wanted out

here until a reply is received.

water company will be at another x

is completed, the treet presents a much
more attractive appearance and this im
provement will certainly cause a boom to
property along the line. To judge from
present indications, tne street will be one
of the most desirable in the city when J
the work is completed.
A wrick occurred at the Oreapolis
junction last night in which an engine
was disabled and four or five cars smash

The Western Union Telegraph Com
pany have agreed to furnish bulletins of j
the coming November election the same
as heretofore. A subscription piper has
already been in circulation, but it has not
been so numerously signed as we expect
ed, only about $15 having been collected
no far. This small amount will n t come i
any where near the required sum. The
operators here who have agreed to rt ceive
dispatches, can only retain a small per
centage for their trouble.
A e hope the ;
enthusiastic politicians will string out the
list. If the required amount is raised,
the line will be connected with Rock
wood hall where the operators will be
stationed during the niglit and in tliis
way make it much more convenient for
the parties interested. Not half the re
quired amount Las been subscribed.
The concert held at the opera house
Tuesday night was a decided success in
every particular. Miss Paul, who gave
tho concert, deserves credit for her
selection of the talent, and the music
rendered. The audience was large and
very attentive, showing much apprecia
tion to each number by the rounds of
applause and encores given the perform
ers. The programme was purely classical
and each selection was handled in a
The entertainment was opened by the
singing of "There is a river," a very beau
tiful solo and double piur"ette,MissMaud
Barnes singing the solo. The double
quartette consisted of Misses Maud Barnes
Li lian Pollock, Mrs. K. W. Carpenter,
Mrs. I). A. Campbell, Messrs George
VasR, John Moore C. M. Wend and W. A.
The second number on the programme
was a piano solo, by Haff, entitled Fairy
Tales. Miss Paul brought out all the
music in the pcice and exhibited good
t.We in the execution of the solo.
A duet, "The Crimson Glow of Sunset
Fades," sung by Miss Maud Barnes and
Mrs. 1). A. Campbell, made a very favor
able impression upon the appreciative
audience and it was rendered in first-
The fourth selection on the programme
was a bass solo, "Thy Sentinel Am I,"
r. ndered by Mr. W, A. Derrick, called
an encore, to which he responded by
sinking another pleasing solo, entitled
"Committed to the Deep."
A duct "Night in Venice," by Miss
Paul and 3Ir. Geo. Vass, pleased the
audience much ami received loud up
pi use. i he .Meriiiaiti s hong ly jVtiss
Maud Barnes called fourth rounds of
applause and she received a rousing en
core, to which she responded by singing
the public favorite, "Annie Laura." A
quartette "Forsaken," rendered by Mjsa
Paul. Miss Pollock, Mr. Wead and Mr.
John Moore, was one of the finest selec
tions of the kind we have ever heard,
ana toe ungtrs merited the loua ap-
pluse which greeted them.
The second part opened with a humor
ous glee, entitled, "Jack Horner," suug
by the double quartette in first-class style.
Miss Clara Paul then rendered her solo,
"Sing, Smile, SIumbcr,"and the violin ob-
ligato by Mr. I. Kalisky, varied from the
ordinary style of vocal selections, and it
was certainly much appreciated by all.
.Miss Maud Barnes then favored the
audience with a college song "Jingle
Bells." She was accompanied by the
guitar, played by Mr. "V. A. Derrick, and
assisted in the chorus by the company.
The piano duet by Miss Paul and Miss
Emma Johnson, won the admiration of
all, and, although a difficult piece, was
rendered in first-class style.
Mrs. E. W. Carpenter made her debut
in Plattsmouth and surg "Let me dream
again," in such a pleasiDg manner that
she was called back by a rousing encore
ml she responded by singing an old
favorite which apparently pleased all:
"The Maid of Dundee." We are glad to
welcome this lady into our musical circle.
A duct. "The Gypsies," by Miss Paul
uid Mrs. Campbell, was a beautiful selec
tion and brought forth .rounds of ap
plause. Miss Barnes then received an encore
after singing another solo. The encore
was sung by her at a concert last year;
"Papa's baby boy," a lallaby, which
brought down the house. She was called
back a second time, after singing an en
core to one of her pieces, which shows
that Plattsmouth appreciates her talent.
Although she was laboring under disad
vantages beiug troubled with a severe
hoarseness, she received great praise.
The last selection was a ladies quart tte

and Mrs. Campbell, which was very

Ing Rally at Grafton.
Addressed by J. B. Strode.
Grafton, Neb., Oct. 24, 1868,
Editor Hrkami : This town of Graf
ton and the farmers of Filmore county
were to-night treated to the most brilliant
convincing and eloquent appeal for Re
publicanism and Protection that has
fallen from the lips of an earnest orator
in this second congressional district
since its organization. Day's hall, -the
scene of the occasion had been profusely
decorated with flags, and pictures of
those who have siren their all for its
preservation, and was crowded to its
utmost capacity ly citizens and the
fanners from many miles around. .. En
tliusiastic campaign aoogs opened the
meeting Hon. J. B. Strode, speaker of
the evening, of Lincoln, who spoke for
three solid hours, held'the audience with
his eloquent and earnest presentation of
fict.s and arguments, as If by magic.
The Democratic party history was given
in a manner and with such plain and
convincing argument and proof as to
hold the audience, at times spell-bound,
from which they would burst at the close
of a pointed argument into loud, enthus
i:istic applause. The address was com
pletea model of Republicanism and
worthy reproduction before any audience.
Compliments for Mr. Strode for his able
efforts aie to be heard from every hearer,
.it r. strode made a powerful impression
on the value of the Republican state
ticket and a tremendous majority will
be polled in this district on November
0th. for the Republican ticket solid.
I lie meeting closed with campaign
songs and a hearty vote of thanks to the
speaker. Reports gathered from all
points of the states speak for a Republi
can vote which will astonish ua all in its
plurality. Democratic voters out this
way are very much disheartened at the
national outlook and do not even suggest
h successful state campaign on their part
So shall it be, and Nebraska will lead
the Union in stars for Harrison, Morton
und protection; and Gen Thayer shall
again know the depth of gratitude and
love which pulsates through the warm
Nebraska hearts, when the polls are
closed and tho returns read : "General
Thayer, 20,000 plurality."

had the injury not been attended to as
soon as it was. While attending to his
duties on the engine, the water glass ex
ploded with a report as loud as a shot gun,
and a piece of the glass entered his right
arm, severing the main artery. He started
for Dr. Livingston s oflice, but before he
reached the office he became so weak
from loss of blood, That it was im
possible for him to reach it without as
sistance. A continual stream of blood
can be traced from the depot to the doc
tor's office as his arm bled profusely the
whole distance. He was rescued in time.

Plattsmouth Herald: The ?oint
'. discussion at this place last night be-
tween countv attomej' Beeson and his
democratic competitor, Matthew Gering,
was the occasion of a very good meeting.
The house was filled with a good au
dience of voters, and the result was a
complete victory for the republicans.
Mr. Beeson met every point advanced
by his competitor and overthrew it and
convulsed the audience by ; his happy
unecdotes. Count us one ahead.
