On Wednesday evening a yonng man
vith a pretty woiniiu on his ami. enteml
the Hotel Boyer.
At the door they parted, she rem;i::
ing in the vestibule, where her rusti
beauty cauned a sensation, while hi we::
tip to the desk and reistwred. He w::s
.evidently nervous, for he nearly put the
wrong end of the pen in the ink, and
finally wrote: Mr. and Mrs. Blank arid
wife, and forgot to set down the place
he cams from. The clerk, however, was
used to sneh vagaries, and assigned the
newly married couple to a room.
The bridegroom taking the key, still
in a state of llusterment, forgot all about
the bride he had left upon the threshold
and hurried off up stairs. When he
reached the room of course he remem
bered his life partner, and returned
headlong to the office to find her. Hut
in the meanwhile the clerk had observed
Mrs. Blank's plight and sent a bellboy
to take her to her room. So when the
bridegroom landed in the lobby he found
no trace of his better half, and his con
sternation was indescribable.
By this time a good many people about
tlie lobby had got wind of the singular
comedy that was ljeing played, and lets
were being offered aa to whether the
bridegroom would throw himself into
the Allegheny or call for the police.
Before any such tragic ending to the
drama could take place, however, the
clerk informed the husband where his
wife was, and a reunion of a most affect
ing nature was soon brought about in
the corridor alxve. Pittsburg Dispatch.
Professor Henry L. Chapman's ppeech
at the Bowdoin commencement dinner
was a model for after dinner orators. In
telling of the deeds of the class of 00
he sioke of the remarkable precocity of
one member, lieorge William Kelle3 of
Portland, of whom the following is re
Corded in Cleveland and Packard's II is
tory of Bowdoin college: "George Wil
liam Kelley was born in Portland, No
vember, lt44. He at once entered on a
theological course of study in Bangor
seminary, etc The only case of pre
cocity approaching this, he said, was iu
-the class of '53, one member of which
was Ephraim C. Cummings, of whom
the same history records: "Ephraim
Chamberlain Cummings was born iu
Albany, 1825. His first year was spent
in teaching in tho academy at Bucks
port," etc. Of the two cases Profess r
Chapman held that the class of '6G led.
aa it was evidently a more precocious
thing to study theology in Bangor th;.:i
to teach in Bucksport. Lewiston Jour
nal. Young Talleyrand's Engagement.
The engagement of the youthful Comta
de Talleyrand Perigord to Mile, de Ro
han Chabot, daughter of the Prince and
Princess de Leon, has raised the ques
tion in aristocratic Paris as to the most
fitting age at which young men and
maidens should enter the holy state of
matrimony. The French aristocracy, it
appears, is divided on the matter.
The Due de Broglie was twenty-four
when he married, the Due de Fezensac
only twenty-two, but Prince Alphonse
was thirty-seven and Prince Ludovic
forty-seven when they quitted the ranks
of the bachelors. On the whole, how
ever, it seems that the average age at
which the inhabitants of the Faubourg
Saint Germain marry is twenty-six:
that of the ladies of the same quarter is
not given, probably on the principle that
a woman on her wedding is exactly tht
age she looks." Pall Mall Gazette.
Sheep Frozen in the Month, of Jane.
A Skowhegan (Me.) Reporter corre
spondent, in speaking of the year 1810.
says it was so cold on the night of June
6 that sheep thai had just been sheared
suffered severely. ''We took fifteen or
twenty of the worst cases," he says,
'laid them down in rows and covered
their bodies with straw. They were so
chilled that they lay so still that some
of them never 6tirred again. I think we
found seven dead in the morning.
"The neighbors lost so many that they
loaded them into an oxcart and drove
down the ferry road that ran through
our field to the river and dumped them
in. About 8 or 9 o'clock that morning a
few flakes of snow were seen in the air.
A number of little birds of a gosling
green color were picked up dead, chilled
Another Smoke Consumer.
Mr. Edson J. Hadlock, of Big Springs.
Tex., has just patented an invention for
arresting all sparks on locomotives and
consuming all smoke that well informed
railroad men say must undoubtedly soon
come into general use. It entirely does
away with the ordinary smokestack of
the locomotive. The smoke and sparks,
after arising in a pipe a few feet above
the boiler, curve downward through
double pipes and pass back into the fur
nace, where everything is reconsumed.
There can be no danger of fire from a
locomotive thus arranged, and it is
claimed that this reconsumption makes
a great 6aving of fuel. It also largely
improves the draft on the furnace.
His Nose "Cut Off by Barber.
Letter Carrier G. W. Yost went into a
Western Addition barber shop to get
shaved. His face was lathered and the
barber was strapping the razor on a stn p
affixed to the chair in which Mr. Yost
reclined. Suddenly, by some unaccount
able slip of the barber's arm, the razor
flashed by Yost's face and severed his
nose completely. The poor young man
will be disfigured for life, and when he
saw his no?e lying on the floor he first
wept and then fainted from loss of
blood. Of course the barber apologized.
San Francisco Report.
Odd Bicycle Incident.
A bicycle and a horse and buggy col
lided on Commercial row yesterday.
The bicycle struck the horse broadside,
and both wheel and rider went over him.
The man in the buggy was simply as
tounded, and as the wheelman, who was
none the worse for his jump, remounted
.and rode off, asked, " What was that?"

It would be a grand thing if our
school directors would remodel
over our school building by treat
ing it to a coat of plaster and
paint and clean up the house in
good shape before our fall school
begins. It would be more cheerful
for pupils to study in a clean house
than in its present appearance. A
dirty and dingy house is an injury
to pupils health, therefore let us
observe the laws of nature, and
have a clean and neat house invit
ing both to pupils and patrons.

to try to drive fractious team.

Elocutionary Entertainment To-might.
The Elocutionary entertainment
at the M. K. church, Saturday night.
Jan. 4, was of a high order. Miss
Joanna Graham is an observ ant and
critical student, in full smypathy
with the heart-throbs of the com
mon people. Her representations
are true to life; hence, when she de
lineates familiar characters, such
as we see on the street, the railway,
and in the everyday walk of life
characters so beautifully word
painted by Dickens. Joaquin Miller
and Brete's Harte she rises to a
high measures of excellence. We
commend her for honest, faithtful
work, deserving well of the public.
Miss Graham will appear at the
Presbyterian church to-night where
a pleasant time is guaranteed.

From the Hurray Ittivmr:
Work on the new court house in
Plattsmouth seems to be progress
ing nicely and enough can be peen
of the building now to make it ap
parent that it is going to be one of
the best public buildings, when
completed, in the state.
After a long time the depot is
completed at this place and it is a
very creditable building, being
large enough to take care of all the
business which will come its way
and it is by no means unattractive
in appearance. Murray can con
gratulate itself on having a better
depot than either that of the B. & M.
or M. P. in Plattsmouth.
Last Saturday evening as the con
struction train was passing through
Murray, going south, it backed on
the side track and because of a
turned switch, three cars were de
railed and the ties at a lively rate
By prompt action the engineer
stopped the train in time to keep
the engine on the track and about
three hours labor set matters right
again, except the ties which were
imbeded in soft ground and re
quired the attention of the track
men. We did not learn where the
fault of the turned switch belongs.

Two Exciting Games.
On last Saturday, July 18th, the
"Light feet" of Plattsmouth and the
local "Crescents" crossed bats on
the home grounds. They played
two games, the first called at 10 a.
m. and the latter at 4 p. m. The
morning game was the best played
game of the two. both sides playing
at their best. The result was 15 to
11 in favor of Plattsmmouth. The
afternoon game was an interesting
one throughout and was marked by
numerous errors and general bad
playing. Plattsmouth had the
game well in hand until the eighth
inning, when chiefly through the
yelling of the bleachers in the
grand stand, Weeping Water was
allowed to score ten runs, tieing
the score. Amid deafening yells
the game proceeded, Weeping
Water winning by the score of 20 to
19. The Crescents could not com
plain of a lack of encouragement
throughout, as everybody seemed
to rejoice over Plattsmouth's de
feat. Plattsmouth, having won two
out of a series of three games with
the Crescents, are now the bo3"
champions or Cass county and are
ready to defend the title against
all comers. The following is the
