Mr. Ed Sampson, who left here sev
eral weeks ago for Washington territory
to look for employment at railroad work,
returned to the city this morning. The
information he imparts to the young men
who are anxious to go west, is not tin
most encouraging, as he says that part of
the country is overcrowded.
The southern part of the city was
kept in an uproar last night and earh
this morning by a party serenading W.
IL Rogan and wife, who were married
at the Catholic church. The bride and
groom were located at Mr. Adam Pret
tig's home, corner Rock and Sixth streets
where the crowd congregated and "mads
The two tramps who were caught in
the act of stealing clothing from the
stores of Mayer Bros., and "Joe's" have
been arrested at Lincoln and sentenced
to the "pen'' for store breaking. The ar
rest and conviction of such thieying
vagrants is welcome news at any part ol
the state as Plattsmouth has not suffered
alone from their intrusions.
The police believed they had the
job of dealing with tramps off their
hands for awhile since they ridded tin
city of the last band of outlaws with
which they bad a tussle, but it seems that
their troubles will never end in that re
spect. Last night they were obliged to
"run in' six of the toughest characters
they have yet encountered.
The six year old son of Geo. Setzej
fell down a pair stairs leading to th
basement of the Fitzgerald block, yester
day afternoon, about 4 o'clock, whil
playing with a number of other beys.
When he was picked up and carried t
Dr. Cook's office, it was thought every
bone in his body bad been broken by hi
screaming, but it was discovered thath
had received no irjuries more severe
than a few ugly bruises on his face and
The friends of Mr." and Mrs. Thos.
Hicks, of the Pacific House honored that
couple by their pres ence on Wednesday
evening, the event being a tin wedding
the celebration of the tenth anniversary
of the wedded life. About twenty fiv
people were present, and a most brilliant
few hours were spent. The host and
hostess were made the recipients of num
berless articles in the form of tinware.
A sumptuous repast was provided for
the party. '
Sheriff Eikenbary and deputy Sheriff
Miller captured Calvin Hubbell near
Pacific Junction last evening. The son.
and abductor of the three children, was
brought to the city this morning with
the two children. Yesterday the boy
persuaded the children to go outdriving
and drove them to Manley where the
trio took the tram for Louisville. They
arrived in the city bist night aliout 9
o'clock by No. 30, and weut t Pacific
Junction, where 8heriff Eikenbary found
them this morning. The wife of Hub

Mr. Editor: It would seem that you
do not fully understand the full text of
of the purchase of that cow by the
Journal editor. Mr. Cole still has that
cow fr sale. The fact of the business
is, that Mr. Sherman bought the cow on
i lair ana square bia but has never
claimed her or gave the least hint of a
settlement, hence the cow is yet for sale.
(t is customary that when a buyer fails
(o take the property he bought in good
faith that he pay ten per cent, of the
price as damages, but as Mr. Cole and
i he Journal have a common political
ftith it is not at all likely that he will
ever sny anything about damages.

monument that covers his remains, and
the tenth rate 6tatue, If such it can be
called, that adjoins it, are in a state of
decay that does the greatest discredit to
Goldsmith's fellow countrymen. On the
one side of the stone is the inscription:
"Here lies Oliver Goldsmith," and on the
other. "Born 10 Nov., 1728. Died 4th
April, 1774-" Many of the letters and
figures on the (stone are jvel nigh oblit

Some of our contemporaries have very
properly again and ags4u called the
attention of the public (p these facts,
but still nothing is done. Surely the
few pounds necessary to keep his grave
in a proper state of repair might well be
subscribed. It is now entirely neglected
and deserted, save by a few .kindly folk
who sometimes deck it with flowers. A
