WIND, LIGHTNING AND HAIL
They Create Considerable Havoc In
Portions of the East.
PiTTsitcno, April 12. A heavy thun
der, wind and hail storm visited portions
of western Pennsylvania, eastcan Ohio
and Maryland today, doinp; considerable
damage. At Klk Garden, Md., a flash
of lihtnino; instantly killed John Wet
zel, a farmer, and two horses. At Frank
lin, Pa., a large iron tDk containing
3,000 barrels of naphtha was struck and
destroyed. At Masontowu, Pa.tlie roof
of a new public school building was
lifted off, plate glass windows broken
and store fronts blown in. The storm
was accompanied by hail. At Steuben
ville, O.. hail stones as large as eggs fell,
breaking many windows. In this city
there was a heavy thunder storm and
large hail stones fell, but there was no
Whekliko, W. Va., April 12. This
evening a fierce thunder storm prevailed,
and some good sized hail stones fell. A
barn belonging to Charles Adolph,
ucross the river, was struck and burned
with its contents, including livestock.
At St. Cl iirsviile, O., The roof of Mur
daugh's mill was tossed fifty yards into
a yacant lot, and several large plate
glass windows in the conrt house were
broken. At Powhrtan, O., the storm
truck llornbrook's three story brick
building and the roof was blown off. It
landed on Oiffen, Bean & Co's. drug
store, a frame building, almost crushing
it by its weight, and damaged the con
tents considerably. Mr. Coleman, who
was in the third story of llornbrook's
building, was blown out into the street
and badly injured. The roof of the
Ohio River railroad depot was blown off
and t lie building caught 6rc, but the
flames were soon extinguished. Many
chimneys and windows were damaged.
A MEXICAN CRISIS.
A Bollef That the Diaz Government
is About to be Overthrown.
2stew York, April 12. A private let
received in New York today from a trust
worthy gentleman residint in the city of
Mexico, says: "Four of the men arrested
on the charge of being implicated in the
derailing of President Diaz's train a few
weeks ago have been shot. The execu
tion was carried out yery vuietly.J is not
infrequently happens in such cases in this
country. Newspapers and news agencies
did not publish the fact, as editors stand
in wholesome awe of imprisonment and
do not give publicity to events which
the governmental authorities prefer
should remain in obscurity. The pros
pect now is that we are going to have
exciting times here before long. The
impression is deepening in many minds
that President Diaz will not be able to
maintain his position to the end of his
present term. Indeed, many think Gon
zale w ill succeed to the presidency be
fore eighteen months have passed.
A Dockter in trubble
The following scholarly letter was writ
ten by a neighboring doctor and received
by Elmwood's medicine man:
"deer Dock I" hav a pashent whos
physical sines shows that the wind pine
has ulcerated off and lunges hav dropt
d wn into his stumick I have given him
everry thin without efeckt her fauther is
whelthy honorable and influenshal as he
is a menber of assembly and god' nose I
dont want to lose hym what shal i dn
ans by return male. Yours frat. ."
Green peas made their appearance in
market this morning.
Nothing indicates a state of general
prosperity for a county more thin to sec
the little country towns all having a
"boom." Thb Joker notices this is the
condition of all the Cass county villages,
and not even a disastrous fire can put a
damper to their enterprise. But he
would warn them to beware of one de
ceiver, and that is the lightning rod
vender. Never hesitate to refuse one of
them entertainment, for angels never
pose as lightning rod agents with a
contract to sign, and it only takes him
thirty minutes to induce a man to state
he needs protection from electric fire, aud
have him sign a note for $150 to keep
The reports of the recent election in
the state have caused The Joker to call
to mind a few thoughts from the pen of
Bob Burdette, as follows: "You don't
make a man any better by destroying
him. You can cut a rattler into fifty
pieces and the venom in his fangs will
be just as deadly as ever. Hi isn't able
himself to apply it; that is all. And yet
there are men as wise men go who
believe that a man can live the life of a
devil all the days he has to live, hating
good and despising virtue, and then
after seventy or eighty years ot this, by
simply laying down and dying, become
suddeuly transformed into an angel of
light and purity, with holy aspirations,
godly and heavenly minded.''
The Joker again wishes to state that
it is with extreme pleasure he observes
the booming condition of Plattsmouth.
and there is so much room for her to ex
tend her energies, that the boom need
never cease. Plattsmouth is at present
the county seat of Cass county. Is
bounded on the west by the suburbs and
on the east by a sandbar, to the south of
it lies the fair grounds and on the north
is a good location for a peach orchard.
Plattsmouth, like several other towns,
lies in the center of the surrounding
country. The people who live around it
are mostly engaged in farming, but they
put in their spare time in buying goods
of peddlers, aud then cuss the town for
being so dull. The principal public
buildings are the flag staff and the pump
in front of the court house. The lattei
is made fast to the sidewalk lest some
one should carry it away to "Wabash.
The town was laid out about thirty years
ago, and it has laid out ever since be
ciuseno one ever thought of such a
thing as taking it in out of the weather.
The streets in the original plat were
marked out with a lead pencil, but care
less men have driven over them with
wagons and erased the original marks so
that the council several years ago was
obliged to paint the names of the stroets
on signs. But now these haye all fallen
down, so that a man has no means cf
knowing whether he is on Billings ave
nue or on a tare. Among the recent ar
rivals which may be classed as being good
for the health is gentle spring and some
new sidewalks on main street, the latter
still have room for improvement. Platts
mouth has three policemen. They have
no regular beats but frequently gather
up beats and run them into the station
hoase. On the whole Plattsmouth is a
goo l town; she is pleasantly located and
inhabited by people who try to do as
near right as tliey know how, when they
i wont lose any money or influence by it.
I Probably some of our readers have money
investad in the town, aud thosa who
have not would do well to invest at onci.
While out walking on? day this week
The Joker found a large diamond in the
western part of the city, but at it was
on the ball grounds he. left it there. For
an en gagement over this diamond it is
necessary for some one to pitch, bat and
catch-her. When there is two sides to
the engagement the kisser is an indispen
sible par ticipater.
Although the weather h:u been modest
ly wet for a week The Joker believes
the reporters of Plattsmouth have found
it rather dry picking.
