The clear sky and cool refreshing
breezes of today make the thower
of last night highly beneficial, to all types
of humanity.
The l'reslvytcrian church bell has
been removed back of Rockwood hall
where it will be placed in the belfry to
call church meetings.
Capt. II. E" Palmer has opened an
insurance office in room 201 Ramge

as well as in Plattsmouth.
All ladies intcrtstedin the Young
Men's Christian Association arc requested
to meet at the new rooms, oyer Bt-nnctt
& Tutt's store, tomorrow afternoon at 2
o'clock to assist in arranging the carpets
and wall furnishings neatly and at
tractively. The new rooms of the Young Men's
Christian Association over Bennett fc
Tutt's are being painted and the last of
the papering is laing done; the carpet is
to be tacked tomorrow and it id hoped
all things will be gotten in shape before
Sunday. The first gospel meeting will
be held in the new hall next Sunday after
noon at 4 o'clock, for men, and a large
attendance is looked for, as the hall will
be much more pleasaut and suitable than
the old room. Rev Blainy, President of
Bellerue college, lus beea secured to lead
the meeting and the services will doubt
less be very interesting.
Sunday afternoon a former employe
named Jim Patrick, who had worked in
the B. & 31. planning mill but recently
was laid off, created some excitement
and uneasiness in his small family circle.
He. bad secured a pint of alcohol, which
he drank, and the strength of the liquor
almost set him crazy, and under the in
fluence he flourished a razor before his
wife and gave his word that he would
commit suicide. Mike Carroll, who owns
the house (on Winterstcen hill) where
he lives, was called and had Patrick
arrested and placed in jail. Yesterday
he had a trial and was fined, which he
- paid, and was liberated, vowing his lust
drink had been taken. 3Irs. Patrick
says she thinks Jim threatened to com
mit suicide more to frighten her than
from any other reason.
A couple of petitions were filed in
the district court today by J. H. Halde
man, attorney from Weeping Water, to
be heard in the coming June term.
is Ambro35 Bickert, plaintiff in error, vs.
-State of Nebraska, defendant in error.
This is rather a peculiar case. Some
time ago 3Ir. Bickert had Anton Hoefer
arrested for misdemeanor. The trial
was had before a justice of the peace and
a jury. The jury simply returned a ver
dict of "not guilty." And then the jus
tice made a finding of his own that "ac
tion was commenced without . probable
cause and malaciously," and rendered a
judgment against Bickert for costs,
which amounted to some sixty dollars.'
Bickert now brings the case into the dis
trict court and asks that the judgement
be reversed. 3rr. Haldcraan also filed
his petition in the case of David R. Den
nis and Geo. II. Dennis vs. Martha Hurst
and C. G. Taylor, to foreclose mechanic's
lein. '

Rapid Traveling.
A special stock train went through
Hastings Friday and made some of the
fastest time on record for that class cf
trains. The train was made up of four
teen of the C. B. & Q's new palace stock
cars, provided with air brakes and Jan
ney couplings, which take up all the
si ick from the train and make it ride as
smoothly as a passenger train. These
cars are also provided with facilities for
feeding and watering the stock in the
car. The cars were loaded with cattle
shipped from Kearney by A. G. Snowden
and these are billed straight through to
Glasgow, Scotland.
The train left Kearney at 1.55 p. m.
and arrived at Hastings, 39 miles from
Kearney at 3:16. The way car and en
gine were changed at this point while the
train was going at the rate of ten miles
an hour. This may seem a "little fishy,"
but it is a fact, the work being done by
Yardmaster Reynolds and his able assist
ants. The run to Lincoln, 97 miles was
made in two hours and twenty minutes,
the train arriving there at 5:30 p. m. The
engine and way car were again changed
without stopping the train, and at 7:16
the train pulled into Pacific Junction,
CO miles from Lincoln, making the run
of 196 miles in five hours and thirty-one
minutes, changing engines and way cars
twice. Hastings Nebraskan.
