tion enme under the notice of The IIeu-
ald scribe, and though such things are
of a daily occurrence, and are schemed
in many different ways it may not be out
of the way to relate this one. Two
young lellows of average appearance
entered a drug store and the leader en
quired of the clerk, "Do you keep
artists' supplies, I would like to get a
fine camel's hair brush." The clerk took
from the show case a great variety of
brushes and laid them before the would-
be artist for inspection. The brusbis
were taken up and examined, and priced
one after another and then ail laid aside,
apparently with dis-utisfiftion, whicii
led the clerk to remark, "You didn't
want a brush at all, then." The presence
of another customer semeed to embarras
the young man but he replied, "Yes I do.
I'll take this one," and picked up a 33-
cent brush and at the same time pulled a
whiskey bottle from his pocket and
was filled and

nd started to walk forward on the train
when the train parted. It seems that it
it parted just as the conductor was step
ping from one car to the other in the
darkness, though the exact circumstance
may never be known, nnd befell into the
gap and was mangled by the rear of his
own train. The forward men , of the
rain did not learn of the parting till
they had gone some distance. A run
back was made and the mangled remains
of the unfortunate conductor were found.

A new puzzle, or came, which has
been amusing everybody in the east from
a bank president down to a street urchin
has introduced itself into Plattsmouth.
This toy has taken more space in news
paper columns than anything invented
since the fifteen puzzle, and metropolitan
papers have 'Id voted pages to it, with
cuts of the game and people puzzling
with it. Three of them have ben
placed in the game room of the Y. M. C.
A. and afford an interesting pastime to
all who think it "looks easy enough."
The tantalizing little puzzle has various
names, but is generally known as the
"Pigs in the Pen" puzzle. The inventor
had in mind the difficulty which a farmer
encounters in ariviug pigs into a pen.
He may get all but one in, when the last
one is sure to dodge between his legs and
get away, or in getting the last one in
another escapes before h.e can secure the
pen. The puzzle is a board about eight
inches in diameter, with a rim projecting
high enough to hold a number of balls;
inside of this circle are other circles or
rims with openings. As the circles de
crease in size the openings are placed on
the opposite sides of the circumferences
so that though it looks easy, one has
great difficulty in getting four or fivt
halls all inside tue inner circle irom the
outer one. Plattsmouth is not vet well
stocked with these puzzles, but it doubt
less will soon be, and then even city
elc tions would not excite a man enougli
to let it alone.

The three cases vs. Albert II. Town
send and others by citizens of Platts
mouth present a curious and and inter
esting state ot facts. They were tried
earnestly to the court and be decision
next Monday is looked forward to with
much interest. It appears that Shepherd
Duke purchased the real estate known
aa Duke's addition to Plattsmouth, in
taking a deed to fifty-two acres of
the same from one A. IL Townsend and
eighteen acre f the same from one
Mary A. Dobelan, also that A. II. Town-
send purchased hia interest in s tid real
estate from his brother, John S. Town
send, a lawyer at Albia, Iowa, but the
record fails to show a conveyance from
John S. Townsend of the undivided
eighteen acres conveyed by Slary A.
Donelan to Shepherd Duke and the suit
is to quiet the plaintiffs title to this un
divided eighteen acres which John S.
Townsend now claims. It is over twenty
years since John S. Townsend claimed or
asserted any claim to this property and
since Mr. Duke platted and laid out the
addition; also each of the several plain-

truthfully predicted by him of the situa

was complimented on it by M. De Vi

credit for their happy ideas by -ocribing
them to some renowned spirit of the

happened to Talleyrand, who, did not,

he completed a miniature saw mill, an
exact counterpart of the mill owned by
his nnclo, for whom he worked. This
was placed under the mill, where it was
run by a water wheel. Long, red pota
toes were cut into "planks" and "boards,"
the machinery running with the preci
sion of the larger machines. As he grew
older his genius developed until ho could
turn bi3 band at anytlung. He worked
at many trades and was the master of
each after a short apprenticeship. 3Ir.
