According to the latest advice to
President Harrison where he shall rusti

stores pass on that point.

FIRE AND WATER.
Dees Considerable Damage
Second Ward House.
Last evening a few minutes before six
o'clock the fire alarm sounded for the
Second ward, and smoke rolling up in
that direction was proof that there was
really a fire, and a good number of fire
boys soon had the Second a Third ward
hose carts on the t cene. Tne house from
which sinckc was pouring was the
property of Mrs. M. A Doyle, but by the
time the hose was ready to throw water
the fire was uuder control, although the
Third ward hose was used some. The
fire caught apparantly at the base of the
chimney in the front part of the house
and when discovered by a man laboring
neur by, had gained quite a start. Hard
fighting was done, and all the furniture
was removed from the house by willing
hands while others engaged with water
in buckets to fight the fire; a well and
cistern supplied plenty of that and the
fire was quickly controlled, but the
house was well soaked. The damage is
estimated at $T0, which is fully covered
by insurance. Besides Mrs. Doyle and
children, two other families lived in the
house, and a third had furnishings for
another room ready to move in, on the
prendscs, when the fire was discovered.

A Penitent Prodigal.
Not'nng tells on a prodigal son and
turns his steps homeward, quicker than
hard times. A few evenings ago at the
depot the IIekald scribe noticed an ac
quaintance, with grip in hand, take a
farev.eil parting of a number of jovial
shop boys, aud start for the train.
"Hello B ! which way now?" queried
the scribe as he stepped up to the de
parting friend and grasped the hand ex
tended. B '"I'm going home."
"ILnne? that's a good place to go, but
what t--tkes you away from Plattsmouth?''
Unexpectedly, there on the car steps
B told a prodigal's tale, in brief as
follows: My father runs a big jewelry
house in S , Ohio. I don't have to
work, but several years ago I started out
to see the world and have a good time,
and I have knocked around from one
place to another, haven't saved a cent
and there is no 'time' to it. Last week I
was laid off in the shops, and with no
show for a job I made up my mind to go
hom ; I will be welcome there. I have
