Asiatic cholera of an exceptionally
severe type is raging in Madras and therj
is great danger of the disease spreading
all over India and possibly across the
whole continent. Quarantine is almost
impossible in Asia, and infected devotees
spread the discise while on their way to
worship at distant shrines. But to great
care can hardly lie taken with regard to
crews and cargoes of ships from infected
ports. According to the twelve-year
theory or superstition, a cholera epedemic
is due thi3 year.
The Democratic press is now in a worry
about the appointment of a man to thv
supreme bench. One of these organs re
luirks: "Mr Harrison is not there to put
his friends into office, bur to supply the
offices with men of broad capacity and
acquirements; men who deserve the po
sitions by reason of fheir previous
attainmeets. If this is true of any ofiice
within his gift, it is true of the supreme
benee. If there is a place that should be
kept free from tho taint of favoritism it
is this." The same paper was among
those which applauded the appointment
of L. Q. C. Lamar. Who ever dreamed
that he was appointed because of his
"broad capacity or acquirements." He
was simply a dreamer of dreams. It will
)e time enough to criticise President Har
rison after lie has made an unwise ap
pointment as that of Mr. Lamar. The
men prominently named for the place all
have eminent fitness for the trust. That
the president takes time to consider the
question in all its bearings is right.
THE TEXAS POLICY.
In his speech at Fort Worth on Wed
nesday, GV. Hoss eloquently described
the great progress that Texas has itade
since the war; and at the same time he
furnished the true explanation of the
luirical. That State lias grown and prog
ressed at an unprecedented rate simply
because it has pursued a wue and J
creditable policy. When the war closed
Texas accepted the results in good faith,
nd went to work intelligently and prac
tically to receive her depressed industries
.and to develepe her latent resource?.
Instead of discouraging immigration
from the north, she invited it and wel
comed it inoit cordially. She did not
waste her tJme sod energy in trying to
solve the race problem by the means em
ployed in other Southern States, T'1C
question of material welfare and prosper
ity was theeontroling one in her philoso
phy. Thousands upon thousands of
industrious and enterprUng Northern
men, including many Union auMiers,
went there to make their homes and iu
vest money, and they have been treated
t all times with frank and snbstantial
kindness. Nobody has to leave Texas
bccuise' of social ostraclom or political
oppression; and Texas has reaped tjie
Just reward of her good sense in that
The lesson is one which the other Sut
ra of the South can not afford to over
look. It u in their power to gain a like
measure of prosperity by adopting like
methods. Texas has outstripped them
all by reason of the fact that she has not
allowed prejudice and tradition to con
fuse and retard her interests. Har peo
ple have shown that a State can be Demo
cratic without being barbaric She cas a
larger Democratic majority than r.ny
other State in the Union, and still does

Industrial and commercial affairs for the
Bouthern Confederacy. Her chosen mis
sion is one of peace and progress, of hap
piness and honor. As Gov. Ross pro
claims, it is her earnest desire to have

and country, and share in the advantages

COI.T.KCTED ON THE COUNTY COURT HOUSE
HOND QUESTION 11 Y TH E BOARD OF TRADE
AND ADDDESSED TO THE VOTERS'
Plattsmotth, Neb., May 15, 1889.
The county commissioners of Cas county
having called an election to vote for or
against issuing $80,000 twenty-year court
house bonds, we desire to lay the actual
facts before cverv property owner and
voter in the county, relying upon their
intelligent consideration of tho same in
casting their vote at the coming election,
June 8th, 18sJ.
The total bonded indebtedness of the
county is $100,000, .These are the rail
road bonds, and the interest has been paid
as it accrued. The principal is due $20,
000 in Juno of each of theyearsof 189u-
J)l-92-i:J-94. Cash in the sinking fund
to pay these bonds is now $50,000, and
sufficient cash in the other funds to pay
all current expenses. So the real indebt
edness of the county is only $.j0,000 at
the present time-
Total valuation county, 18S8, $4,743,779,
Valuation of Plattsmouth
City and Precinct $1,287,191
Eighty thousand dollars at 5
per cent will cost annually, .... $4,000.
Nine-tenths of one mill on the
total valnation will raise $4,207
More than sufficient to pay the interest
on the bonds.
The average valuation on eighty acres
of land in the county as shown by the
records is about $450, so that the owner
ot eiirhtv acres wotdd have to pay a
O ml -
court house tax of about 40 cents, or less,
each year. These figures ar based on
the 1888 assessment. The valuation will
be greater in 1889, by possibly $300,000,
and will increase largely each succeeding
We believe that a new court house
should be built, not only for the sake of
building the same in our city but for the
protection of the records of the county
clerk, county treasurer, county register,
county judge and the clerk of the dis
trict court, in all of which records almost
every farmer and land owner in the
county is vitally interested.

I have used the inclosed and, knowing
well it3 value, thought some of your
readers would be glad to know. Take
one-half cake of eoap, cut into 6m all
phves and dissolve thoroughly in hot
water. Pour this into enough cold jvater
to cover the blankets, add two ounces of
borax (pulverized dissolves most readilv)
and put your blankets in to soak all
night, or longer. In tho morning take
out And .squeeze most of tho water out,
and rinso thoroughly in cold water jn
which a little borax has been dissolved.
Put them through a second rinsing water
ami then the bluing water. Do not
wring or squeeze thcra this time, but
hang them up to drain and dry. The
easiest way is to take them put under the
lino in tho tub in the last water. Hang
single on tho line, and tako a sunny day.
If the wool is very greasy uso more soap
and borax, vary soap at.d liorax to suit
quantity of water. Cor. Good Housekeeping.

In tho Mediterranean, not far from the
town of Cannes, lies St. Ferieol, a naked
rock, bristling with stony spines and points,
and evidently bidding defiance to any one
who would A'irQ seek a foothold. A little
earth bos accumulated in )i3 bollo'.rs, en J

tlin f holera was raging. The son immediately
took bis body pn board ship and set sail for
Genoa, but on his an ivy (here the authori
ties refused to give burial to the musician,
whoso well known peculiarities had given
ri-;o to a pencral belief in his insanity.
Moreover, the cholera was also raging at
Geno. pud it was pretended that tho pres

the disease was prevalent might inciv&w; he

Tho son then returned to Marseilles, but
entrance to that port was refused him for the
same reanon, pml he went on to Cannes,
which was also closed po him. His plight
was a desperate cue, and when bo at ias

with tho greatest didi,cuity, and buried bis

In 1S45 the body was removed, and taken
to Genoa for burial. Ono can scarcely help

I'm p'intod straight fur Nassau and Bermu
dy. Never out among the foothills, I reckon?
Thought ye wasn't. It's a great country. Bui
there hain't no centipedes out thar. I missed
the centipede. I was kind o' used to 'em,
havin spent a year or two with 'em down in
Uermuily and Nassau. Another drawback
to the foothill country is that it's a littla
short o' scorpions. Thur's a few out thar, but
not enough to make it cheerful, and it'd have
been a trifle dull for mo if it hadn't been for
the tarantulies. Know what a tarantuly is,

A REGULAR LADY KILLER.
"Guess ye uever see oneo' them big spiders,
though, did yet Thought not. They size up
first rate out on the adobe groumls of the
Sierra foothills, but they ain't more'n half as
big as tarantulfes is in Herniudy and Nassau.
I've seen 'em down thar as big as your hat.
But 1 guess they hain't got no more Ore in
their jaws than the foothills tarantuly cur
ries. Tarantulies is thick as fiies out tbar
'mong the foothills. When tho nights is warm
they sally out on tho promenade so numerous
that ye have to watch out or ye 11 6tep on
some of 'em and hurt 'em. Many a Gne
inoruin' Tvo got up and seen tarantuly hair
enough on tho ground to temper a square rod
o' mortar. It's hair they shed in free fights
'tween themselves durin the night. You
might walk over tho adobe grounds of the
foothills for a month ami wouldn't notice ye
was walkin' over a tarantuly settlement.
Maybe ye'd seo what ye thought was a dead
leaf or a piece o' dirt make a sudden flip kind
of a movement, but tho chances is that 3-e'd
think it was owiu to the wiud a stirrin'
soinethin' or other on the ground. I'll bet
that's what ye'd think. But it wouldn't be
the wind a stirrin' nothiu'. It'd be tho trap
door of a tarantuly's den closm' shot. A good
many folks'd think, when they Grst soo a
tarantuly s den, that it s a dice box some
body's dropjxjd. I'll bet you'd think so 3-er-
self, now. Tarantuly's dens looks a powerful
lot like dice boxes, but don't yo never go and
pick ono up, thinkiu' ye'r found a little curi
osity, or ye'll seo that ye'r found a curi
osity bigger'u a heap, and inaybo there won't
lie whibky enough in jer Gask to out pizen

to tho den by a bingo ou one side. It s made
out o leaves and sticks and dirt, which is
glued together with some patent cement tho
tarantuly makes himself.
"It hain't no sign that the tarantuly is to
borne when his door's shet, for heal ways shets
it when ho goes out on the war path or on the
mush. Didu't know the tarantuly was a great
masher, did ye? Cert'cly ye didn't. Why,
he's a regular dude on tho mash. He'll stand
on the corners by the hour, strokin' down his
whiskers with some of his avs and a tar
antuly is closo on to all whiskers and paws
and watchin' out for lady tarantulies. When
one comes along toward whar ho stands, he'll
pull his chin whisker and strike a posjsh and

home that he's great. He comes home with

out thar that's built so that it can flip its tail
off as easy as you caw snap yer fingers, mid "

that's tho kind of a lizard that sprouts out
