Reports from all parts of the country
show that copious rains have dispelled
nil feera of drought aud vastly improved
the prospept for a bountiful harvest of
tvlicat aud corn.
Tunui: are a larger number of cottages
and fine dwelling houses being built and
almost completed thi spring than has
been built in thU city for the past thres
years, and the contractors tell us they
have more contracts for houses that have
not been commenced, than they can
build this summer. This ppeaks well for
I' LA TTSMO UTIT OR OWING.
Plattsmouth has got a growth this
ppring that is a real boom and it is not a
ikfch in the pan but a steady growth aud
one thut v.-ill last and increase in strenght
as time advances.
The work on the Electrict Lamp Manu
facturing building hits been commenced,
and will be pushed to completion as fast
The excavation for the new $40,000
hotel is about completed and a number
of building's are now waiting for brick,
which have benn commenced and work
tope J for want of this materiel. Our
brick yards were not prepared for such a
building boom thu spring and they have
run out of brick but they are all burning
large kilns and will soon be prepared tr.
keep the building boom going.
The Catholics have contracted for a
fine building tkat will use ' 10,000 brick
which will be commenced as soon as thr
material can be procured.
THE LATEST SOUTHERN OUT
RAGE. There seems to be no room for doubt
in the matter of the reported election
outrage of Monday laat at Lafayette, in
Louisiana. It is definately certified that
a band of armed white mm surrounded
the polls and threatened to kill any
colored man who should attempt to cait
a vote. The sheriff tried to protect the
colored voters and lo enforce the law,
but he had no support, so was obliged to
close the polls and appeal to the govern
or for assistance. This is not a story of
the past, it will be observed. It is
thing of the present, and cannot be put
aside with the familiar plea that we
should let bygones be bygones. We are
now living in the year 1881), nearly a
quarter of a century after the close of
the war, and still it is possible for an
election to be prevented by the aibitrary
interference of a gnng of riflemen, deter
. mined that only such votes shall be cast
as they see proper to permit. The fact!
are distinct and conclusive. It is useless
to search for any explanation except that
of direct hostility to the idea of honest
and peaceful government; and it is equal
ly idle to say that the occurrence is a
mere local accident, having no force as
an indication of southern sentiment.
The meloncholy truth is that the same
thing might easily have happened in nuy
other part of the south. It is by such
meaas that the power of the democratic
jarty is maintained throughout all that
part of the country. "Whenever it is
necessary to resort to intimidation, fraud
and violence to keep the colored
voters away from the polls and prevent
ths success of the republican ticket, - the
white democrats are ready to do the mis
crable work, and public sentiment in the
community is sure to indorse and defend
the proceeding. It is net true that the
colored man's right to vole is recognized
in any southern state. On the contrary
i t is systematically scouted and resisted.
Tiie political leaders are all committed
to the theory that the whites are justifi
able in suppressing the colored Tote by
any process that can be made to accomp
lish such a result. We may as well face
the issue squarely. It can profit us
nothing to decieve our selves in a case
where the testimony is so clear and com
plete. The time may come when it will
be possible for all classes of citizens to
vote freely and safely in the south; but
that time has certainly n t jet arrivsd,
nor are the signs of its approach very en-
57.. pc-tibly a way may b
found to hurry it somewhat during the
next four years. That is the hope, at
least, of all good and patriotic citizens;
and it remains to be seen what the new
congress, co-operating with a republican
president, will do toward the solution of
the grave and difficult problem. Globe

TRUTH IN DEATH.
Xtat He Regretted It. and Added a False
hood at Last,
Wo had a man named Burrows in our min
ing camp, and he was without doubt the most
notorious liar Nevada will ever shelter. His
fame as a liar spread for a hundred miles
around, and men used to stop at our camp to
get a look at him. Ho wasn't a wicked man,
and ho had no malice about him, but he was a
natural born liar. He lied about his father,
his mother, bis wife, brothers, sisters, and
everybody else, and for every hour in the day
ho had a new falsehood. He had a claim of
his own and was fairly industrious, and so we
had no excuse to drive him out, although hi--lies
were continually kicking up ill feelmp.
among tho men. One day a lot of earth u;:;i
roek caved ia ou him and inflicted fatal inju
ries, and a uumber of. us knoeked off work to
bo with him in his last moments. You would
have thought the shadow of death would Ua vo
brought a change of sentiment, but it did not.
Lying there with only an hour of life left to
him, ha told us that ho had been a pirate
on the Pacific and whore he had buried a largo
amount of plunder. We all knew that he was
from Oiiio and had never seenaDj ocean, but
ho stuck fo it. One of the men finally felt it
his duty to say:
"Burrows, you have only, a short timo to
live. You had best speud that in preparing
"I've alius been good," he quietly replied.
"Yes, but you are an awful liar, you
"Yes, I suppose so. Pre told a million of
them, haven't IV
"No doubt of it."
"And every one has been laid up agin me?"
"And my chance is rather slim?"
'Well, boys, it's my way, and I can't
change at this late day. Just as that cave in
eamo I struck a nugget as big as my head.
It would value up a clean $15,000. If you'll
be kind enough to pull it out and sell it and
send the cash to my -wife I'll die feeling better."
lie went off soon after that, and we said to
each other that he had given us tho greatest
yarn of alL Ko one took his claim, which
was. accounted a poor one, and it lay for
three months before ono of the boys dug into
it ono day for the pickax buried and for
gotten. He hadn't got tho pick when he
came acros3 a lump of gold which balanced
13,2S0 in coin, and every shilling of the
nioney was sent on to tho widow, as directed.
It got there to find that there was no widow,
but six months later went to a sister. In his
dj-ing hour Burrows told tho truth about his
find, but, alasl he repented of it, and lied
about bavin? a wife. New York Sun.
A Dos Story,
A week or two ago tli3 porter cf the Bristol
Royal infirmary was disturbed ono morning
about C:H0 by tho howling of a dog outside
tLo building. Finding that it continued, he
went out and tried to drive it away; but it
returned and .continued to howl so piteously
that ho was obliged to go out to it again.
This time he observed that one of Its paws
was injured. Ho, therefore, brought it in
and sent for two nurses, who at once dressed
tho paw, and were rewarded by every canine
fcig:i of gratitude, including much licking of
their hands. The patient was "retained" for
two days, during which time ho received
every attention from those insido the bouse,
end frpm tha neighbors outside, who quickly
heard of the case. As no ono apneared to
claim tho dog, ho was sent to tho Ilomo for
Iost Dogs in the city, whero 60 interesting an
animal was, of course, not loug in finding a
purchaser. The dog was one of those called
