of J 812.
It may Dot be generally known, but
it is a fact that Plattsmouth has a
DeDsioner of the war of 1SI2, there be
ing but few of them left from the rav
ages of time, which is do respecter of
the brave or the great,except in mem
ory. Doubtless the only pensioner re
siding in the stale of the last war with
England ia Mrs. Mary B., widow of
Selden P. Harrison."
Mrs. Harrison ia a well preserved
lady in appearance, being about sev
enty years of age, and resides with her
daughter, Mrs. T. T. Wilkinson. She
was Ihirty years youDger than her
husband who has been dead forty-one
years. Her husband was a resident of
oid Virginia when war was declared
and was one of the first to join a com
pany to do battle for the flag, which he
followed to the close of the war, re
ceiving as pay for his services land
warrants which were good for 100
acres of public lan? wherever he might
choose to select it.
Mrs. Harrison receives a pension ot
$12 per month from the government,
which shows a worthy spirit of liber
ality in its treatment of those who have
defended the nation's interests in an
hour of peril.
We also have two pensioners of the
Mexican war in the persons of Henry
Watson and II. G. Spencer, both "of
whom saw service on the cactus plains
of Old Mexico.
Funeral of Mm. Vitlan.
From Wednesday's Daily
Mrs. Elizabeth Vivian, mention of
whose death was made in last even
ing's News, was born in the state of
New York sixty years ago. She came
west early and was one of the pioneers
in this county, having settled in
Plattsmouth when the town was but a
group of houses on the river bank.
Deceased was the mother of Willie
and Mamie Gibson, the latter now the
wife of W. S. Scott, of Lincoln.
Having after the death of her first
husband married Mr. Vivian, she
laised four children Maud, Lester,
Lloyd and Emmons Vivian, who also
survive her. The body of the deceased
was brought to this city from Lincoln
on tho noon train today, and at 10
o'clock tomorrow (Thursday) morning
the funeral will take place from the
Episcopal church, where the .de

Uoonil Over to Court.
Eli Jones secured the services of an
attorney this morning, and made a
tight for his liberty before Justice Ar
cher. The county attorney, C. S. Polk,
had looked up the testimony so care
fully that Mr. Jones soon found him
self floundering in deep water. De
fendant's attorney also made a vigor
ous fight for a $100 bond, but it was no
go. Jones was held to appear at the
next term ot district court in the turn
of $500, and, not being able to give the
bond, ho was sent back to jail. His
crime, it will be remembered, was the
assault on Mrs. " Lulu R imge with a
wagon standard, which came very

Mrs. Hart in some manner escaped
from the asylum at Lincoln Monday and
. came here. She remained all night with
Mr. Sackett's folks and then came to
town to take the morning train to Om
aha. Her condition seems in no wise
improved. As soon as her husband,
Dr. Hart, heard of her wanderings he
came here in search of her, but at last
accounts no one seemed to know where
she had gone, as it was found she did
not take the early train for Omaha.
Painful Accident at Loutuville.
The roar brakeman on the local

Wave Allen, Residing Near Ashland, Gives
the Officials Orlef.
The following from the Lincoln
News will be of interest to Plattsmouth
people, W. T. Allen, the man referred
to, being pretty well known nere
abouts. He is known as Wave Allen.
The News says:
W. T. Allen, the farmer living
near Ashland, who for a long time
stood off the sheriff and his deputies
and prevented them, by the use of
shot guns and revolvers, from fore
closing on his farm, has at last been
compelled to surrender. A couple of
detectives from Omaha, H. Plyburn
s.nd V. R. Adams did the work. They
recovered four shot guns and one

courts for three years. After the sale
a writ of possossion was issued and
put in the hands of Sheriff -Buck of
Saunders county to serve, but he and
Deputy Jones have never been able to
get possession &ome insist mat tney
were afraid of Allen's guns, while
others say it was sympathy for his
large and dependent family. The
Omaha detectives found two of Allen's
sons in town yesterday afternoon. Tak
ing one with them to the fort they got
inside before Allen knew of it and
called upon him to surrender, and
after parleying awhile he did bo.
They brought him with the captured
guns to town last night, where two
doctors attended him. His wife and
family " followed. Today the officers
secured a dwelling house and the
family will occupy it. All the house
hold effects and farm implements
were moved into the public road and
possession given to agents of the new
