which was to ro south on the
Kansas Citv road, and stopped a
few feet from No. 10H, waiting lor an
opportunity to pull up to the tank
The switch behind No. 19 was left
open, and at this interesting
juncture a freight train from the
west came in sight around the
sharp curve only a few rods away.

Kngineer George Driffson and
Fireman Dolan, and an attempt
was made to stop when the mi?
placed switch was discovered, but
it was 011 a down grade, the rails
were slippery with frost and the
engine of the freight crashed into
No. 10 at a speed of twelve or fifteen
miles an hour.
The shock threw No. 19 and the
combination car back against No
10S, and the damage was done. Tiie
engine crews jumped just before
the crash came and were uninjured,
with the exception of Fire
man Dolan, whose left wrist
was severely sprained.
Kngine No. 243 was very badly
damaged. The front end was en
tirely torn away, she was thrown
from her forward trucks and the
drivers left the rails. The entire
machine was badly wrenched and
will have to be entirely overhauled.
Steam was kept up, however, and
the engine was able to run to the
shops when replaced on the rails a
few hours later.
Nos. 19 and 10S both had their
headlights and pilots smashed.
The combination car lost both plat
forms and was considerably disar
ranged. The first car of the freight
train was a load of corn, and the en

and several wagon loads of yellow
kernels were scattered over the sur

Waterman Last Night.
A very fair house witnessed the
rendition of Hull's cantata, "Jeph-
thah's Daughter," at the Waterman
last night. The cantata was pre
ceded by several vocal numbers by
W. A. Derrick and Mrs. K. B. Burris
and a cornet solo by Mr. Eigen
broadt. The singing of "My Little
Woman," by Mr. Derrick, won a well
merited encore, as (1 id the solo of
Mr. Kigcuhroadt. The orchestra.
under the direction of Prof. Deck,
did very well, considering that it is
a new organization and has not had
the experience necessary to smoothe
over the rough joints. The cantata
itself is not much of a piece. A few
of the numbers are of first grade.
but the music as a whole is not sus
tained. The leading character,
that of Iphigenia, Jephthah's
daughter, was played by Mrs. S. K.
Clappe, directoress of the entertain-
ent, in a most finished manner.
Her acting, especially in the last
act, was superb for an amateur. As
Jephthah, W. A. Derrick was a dis
appointment. He has a line bass
voice, but his ability as an actor
was away below par. Mr. Pettee, as
the Prophet, acted his character
fairly well. He is admirably fitted
to the role, so far as appearance is
concerned, as his real whiskers lend
h:m a very ancient appearance.
Frank Dickson in the character of
Abdon, Jewish prince, was fine.
Frank has real talent in him. J. K.
Pollock died like a man on the
battlefield; but then, most anybody
could die happy under the circum
stances. Harry Jaquette, as
Camp Guard, played like an
actor. Miss Grace Pike, as Naomi,
displayed great talent and by her
acting and beauty captured the
audience. On the whole, the exhi
bition was as good as any amateur
performance can be, and Mrs.
Clappe and Miss Pike are to be con
gratulated upon their success.
People were turned away from
the Grand opera house at both af
ternoon and evening performances
yesterday. "The Midnight Alarm"
was produced. The piece is of the
epectacular melo-dramatic class
with fine scenic and mechanical ef
fects, among which are the Brook-
lyn bridge scene with boats plying
on the Kast river, the draw bridge
scene and the engine house scene,
m wlncn is sliown a lire engine
dragged by handsome horses. The
cast of players is above the average,
and all are equal to the tasks as
signed tliem. "the .Midnight
Alarm" will be repeated to-night
and at matinee and evening per
formances to-morrow. Syracus

ARRESTED AT BROKEN EOW.
W. C. Avery Is Arrested. Charged
W. C. Avery, who will be remem
bered by the citizens of Plattsmouth
as the man that compiled the last
city directory, has been arrested,
charged with seduction. Avery
ran a hotel at Greenwood, but was
compelled to quit the business on
account of carrying on an irregular
saloon. He went from Greenwood
to Broken Bow, where he has been
running a ealoon. He was brought
to Greenwood last night by Sheriff
Halliday of Custer county.
While Avery was running a hotel
at Greenwood, it is alleged that he
hid in his employ a widow named
Williams, who had alwa3-s borne a
good reputation. She was induced
by Avery to fill the place of a wife
without having complied with the
usual formalities. When Avery left
Greenwood he made faithful prom
ises to the widow that he would
right all wrongs, but he seems to
have been absent-minded, and Mrs.
Williams proceeded to find him and
bring him to justice.
Mrs. Williams being in a delicate
condition and liable to be a charge
on the cor.nty, the commissioners
have cavised his arrest and intend
to make him right his wrongs or
suffer the consequences.
