The establishing of the Chicago
avenue lumber yard by John C. Cummin
and son Charley, is under way, and the
lumber is being hauled to the grounds,
corner Rock street and Chicago avenue,
and arranged as rapidly as possible. Mr.
Cummins is not a new man at the busi
ness, having run a lumber yard on Pearl
street till about six years ago, when he
sold out to Richey Bros.; but he finds it
desirable to again embark in that line of
business with his son. They will erect
sheds and build an office soon, and hope
to be ready for business by April 1.
About a twenty-five carload of stock
will be kept on hands.
John Waldruff, a tough bum who
has been laying around the city for some
time, disregarding orders to leave the
city, is now serving ' a term of about
seven days and a half in the city jail.
Last night he became intoxicated enough

this morning went to the depot and was
going to do desperate things with -the
night watch, Pose Smith. Smith blsw
his call whistle and officers Johnny
Fitzpatrick and James Grace were soon
on the scene. Waldruff was not satis

This morning he was arraigned before

and disorderly, and sentenced to jail .

Complaints haye come in from time
to time during all the winter from dif
ferent parties about the loss of chickens.
Someone would raid their coop after
dusk and carry away any where from six
to a dozen chickens Until this week it
has been a mystery te the officers who
were doing this work, though the right
parties were suspicionad. It proves to
be three young fellows named Tom Hart,
John Brown and Wm. Phillips. Phillips
is nearly of age, while the other two are
boys about fourteen. It appears that
they made it a practice to keep them
selves supplied with spending money
during the winter with chickens which
they would steal, and find a ready mar
ket foe. One butcher on asking why the
game was always brought at night re
ceived the reply from Hart that h's
mother had 200 hundred old hens which
she intended to sell off and raise young
ones, and they could only be caught after
dark. The boys discovered this week
that they were about to get into trouble
and the two older ones skipped town,
leaving Hart behind. He lays the steal
ing on the boys, but does not deny that
he sold the game and had his share of the
boodle. Within the last week three or
four hen houses were raided.

Ten Japanese) of Royal Rank Paea
Through Plattsmouth on a
Gazing on Civilization.
One of the Pullman drawing . cars at
tached to No. 2 yesterday afternoon was
occupied by a royal party of ten from
Japan. As the train enly stopped two
minutes the Jans did not leave their car
and many were not aware of their pres
ence on the train.
In dress the men were very English,
being clad principally in tweed suits and
fore and aft cap9. They were all small
in stature and very ordinary looking
oeoule. indeed. The four ladies of the
party were dressed according to Redfern
They dressed their hair a la Psyche and
looked entirely American except as to
their faces. The party consisted of the
Count and Countess Sewa, the Marquis
and Marchioness Maeda, Mr. Saitan,
master of ceremonies to his royal high
ness and his wife, the mikado. Lieutenant
VnahSp pommmder of the navv. and his
wife. Mr. Kato. of the royal household,
Dr. Miaura, physician to the mikado,
Lieutenant Yoshie was the only member
of the embassy who can speak English
intelligibly, but he speaks the language
fluently, and takes great pleasure in an
Hwennrr the ouestions nut to him by a
0 1 ft
politely interested person.
The party, sailed from Japan on the
16th of Frebruary and arrived in Ssn
Francisco en the 4th inst After a pleas
ant visit in the citv of the Golden Gate
they came oa eat, The party is travel
ing principally for pleasure, isp identally
examining the navies of the different
coutries they visit. Their present desti
nation is Washington, and from there to
New York, where they will board ship
on the 6th of April aad sail for Paris,
where they will visit the exposition.
LJeuteont yoshie has visited America
on several occasions, fcui the other mem
bers of the party breathe the ozom of
Uncle Samuel's domain for the first time.
They are deii&btcd with what they have
seen and greatly surprised U) find that
"the people of these United States have
reached such a high degree of civiliza
tion." On the 11th of last month the Mikado,
by royal decree, gave to Japan its first
constitution, which entirely changes the
form ef government, making it similar
to that of England.
District Oourt Proceedings.
Judge S. M. Chapmaa left last night
for Lincoln where he opened court this
mornin?, and Judge A. W. Field arrived
in Plattsmouth last evening and took
Judge Chapman's place on the bench
here. Judge Field was accompanied by
court reporter Oscar A. Mullen, of Lin
coln. This term of court has been a very
poor one for jury cases, the reason seems
to be, there were not many on the docket
and the majority of them that were
there wsre continued over till the May
t -am. The jury in the case of Bachelor
vs. the C. B. & Q., for $5,000 , damages,
was out from Tuesday evening at 5
o'clock, till last evening, when they re
turned a verdict finding for defendant.
The last jury of this term was probably
impaneled this morning in the case of
Champion Machine Co. vs. Fred Gorder;
and the jurymen were relieyed from duty
today. Court will probably be continued
k or two in finishing up the docket.

MAN AND BOY.
The Oldest Man and His Grand
child, ths Fattest Boy In
John Johnson, who now resides at Ash
land, in Saundars county, says the Omaha
Republican, was born in Cataga county
Ohio, Oct 22. 1790. He is therefore 99
years old, and probably the oldest man
in the state. He owns a farm . west of
Ashland, and was the first whits man
who ever set foot in Saunders county.
That was about 1852 or 1853. Since
that time he he has always lived there.
He was married at 18 years of age to
Rosanna Dunn, of Meadville. Pa. He
had two sons and one daughter by that
Union. About twenty-eight years after
the marriage he lost his wife and five
years later he married again. His second
wife was Jans Wahlett. He had three
daughters all of whom are married. The
children were reared in and among the
Pawnees and Otoes when Pawnee Chas.
was chief. Mr. Johnson is strong,
healthy and active, and whoa called up
on by a representative of the Republican
he danced a reel with all the actiyity of
a man of twenty-five years.
Mr. Johnson is particularly proud of
his son James F. Johnson, who has a
son that tipped the eeaes at 100 pounds
when but 13 months of age. Leader,
This recalls the old chestnut
has been hashed and rehashed until it is
dizzy, but which is none tbe less true,
that nine men out of ten believe that they
can do better newspaper work than tbe
man in the business. Who, that has been
grinding "public opinion" for any length
of time, has not been given to instructions
and pointers and advice by people who
wouldn't be able to write a column in a
week Jif they wera put down to
it Tbe missionary of tbe newspaper
business doesn't call oa the lawyer to
show him how to make a brief; he sel
dom hunts up a clergeman to show him
the best pulpit attitudes; he never en
deavors to show the dentist how to pull
teeth; he would consider it impertinent
to discourse on the best plans of repair
ing watches to a watchmaker. But the
lawyer and clergymen and dentists and
watchmakers and butchers and bakers
and horseshoers and stokers and under'
takers and milkmen think they are doing
great good by explaining to a newspaper
man the best methods of doing bis work,.

THE BEST GOODS FOR
A Nebraska nyer)tl9n?
Some great and wonderful inventions
have been turned out by inventive gen-
:uscs of the western states in late- years
n the line of farming implements, but a
man down in Pawnee county, of this
state has an invention that, if it does
what the Beatrice Democrat claims for it,
will take tbe lead. J. P. Dunn is the
name of the inventor, and for hve years
he labored on a farm in Pawnee county
and worked at his invention, but. of
course, was to poor too raise the money
required to further his patent, and took
in a monied Beatrice man as a partner,
which save the invention, which is for
corn husking, the title of -'unn & Fit-
ton Corn Picker" These are tne won
derful qualities claime i for it by the
Democrat: "The machine is gotten up in
a mechanical manner with very little
machinery, unlike any other machine now
in existence, and a boy ten years old can
manage it Two horses are all that are
required to pull it through the field and
the beauty of this machine is that thers
is no side draft. The weight of tbe ma
chine will not exceed lou pounds, and
will pick and busk all tbe ears of corn
wbicb are scattered over tne ground, as
well as those on sUlks. Another great
feature about the machine is that it leaves
all the corn stalks standing as straight as
thev trrew leaving no down rows in tbe
Editor and Wnca,
Nothing could be more false than tLat
editors and publishers like to decline
things. On the contrary , they are perfectly
eager to get good articles and books, no
matter how obscure the writer may be;
somepjmes. indeed, the obscurer he is
the better. The amount of pains which
editors and publishers take to" lick into
shape manuscripts which have a basis of
merit, but which are abominably writ
ten, is something which would be very
surprising to aggrieved contributors wh
regam every eaitor and publisher as a
contemptuous person with a prejudice
against all unknown writers. Editors
are willing to suggest, to correct, even
to rewrite; out otten the task is too
much for them, and they decline matter
which really has much that is good be
cause the writer is so very far from hav
ing learned his trada There is no
higher art than the art pf writing; and
yet some people expect that they may
exercise it without any apprenticeship
whatever, just as some others expect to
jaint good pictures or sing songs like an
artist, nght PPi out of hand, by sheer
force of genius, or by "main sffengf h, as
Paddy thought be could play the fiddle.
The result ia the woful duty that editors
flod themselves under, and which they
pot t? be blamed if thr-y sometimes
