A Stormy Night.
Last night was the stormiest of the
year in this vicinitj' the wind and
hail fairly vicing with each other to
see which could do the greater dam
age. At Union the wind did consider
able Carnage. It turned over out
buildings and blew down Wm. Eikcu
bary's windmill tower.
nere in Plattsmouth the hail was
worse than the wind. Several window
lights were broken, and L. A. Moore
is reported to have sutfered a severe
loss at his green-bouse JOG glass
having been broken. The rain fell in
torrents for a while ajd in places
washed the roads badly. Apricot and
early fruit trees were almost stripped
of their buds.
An Electrical Freak.
While the storm was raging last
night a large crowtl was assembled in
at Billy Neville's when a ball of tire,
appearing about tho size of a man's
fist, came into tho room over the elec
tric light wire, and just before it
reached the arc light it suddenly ex
ploded with a loud report that fright
ened every man in tho room out of
his wits. No damage was done and
the lamp was not put out. It was cer
tainly a strange freak of the light
ning, and those that saw it say they
don't care to see any more electrical
phenomina of that 6ort at such short
range. -

A Fine Musical Entertainment.
The musical entertainment for, the
beneCt of St. John's church was a
success in every particular with the
exception of the weather, though in
spite of the forbiding element,
a largo and fashionable audienco
listened to tho program with great
pleasure.
The opening number, "King's
Hussars," a piano duett, performed by
Miss Carney and Miss Clark, was
well-rendered. Miss Mauzy's recita
tion called forth a, vigorous encore,
which was responded to most grace
fully. Little Nellie McVey is a sweet
little girl, and her song was very
sweetly sung.
The singing by the male quartette
from Omaha was a prominent feature
cf the evening's entertainment and
was much enjoyed.
One of the very best solus was Miss
Clark's "Night Time." It was beau
tifully sung, and called forth a well
merited encore. Miss Kay's recita
tion was somewhat marred by the
patter of the haii on the roof, but was
undoubtedly good, as was tho tenor
solo, "Mine Always," by V. Brennan
of Omaha.
An informal dance - followed the
program and contributed largely to
the pleasure of tho evening.

Kougli on Nebraska City
A pon of J. Sterling Morton has
presented Nebraska City with a li
brary, and now the editor of the Press
will lind his nose out of joint. Hereto
fore when able citizens got into a dis
cussion over any matter of history,
political economy, science or tho what.
they would always turn to Pete Brown,
and whatever his decision was they
knew was wrong, and the "right
was, therefore, easily ascertainable.
It must have cost Mr. Morton a con
siderable sum of cash to have all the
English classics translated and print
ed in the Missouri language, but he is
one of those young men who spare no
expense when they know that they can
bring joy to tho bosom of fellow-citizens.
To the l'nblic.

move all filth and refuse matter from
their lots, also alley and street adja

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
Tor any sen60n, but perhaps more gen
erally needed when the languid, ex
hausted feeling prevails, when tho
liver is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this medicine has
often abated long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act
more surely in counteracting and free

poison. Headache. Indigestion, Con

THINK THE WORST YET TO COME.
New Orleans Fighting the FlooiU Against
a Strong Handicap.
New Orleans, April '22. At mid
night the city gaugo showed 19.3 feet
above low water, and at the present
rate of rise the early prediction of
twenty feet will probably be realized.
Ihe crest of the flood wave is now
supposed to ho below Vicksburg, and
with a clear track unencumbered by
crevasses, will reach hero in throe or
four days. Even with good weather
the strain will bo terrific, and a study
of the weather chart shows that rain
is almost certain to come. Escape
with a solid front below tho present
Louisiana brer.ks will be a miracle.
even aided by the magnificent work f
iho levee defenders,' who are still
lighting hs fieiccly as if the battle
had not been on night and day for a
month.
Yestei day's light was much fiercer
than ever before. In St. Bernard,
just below the city, two ievees wero on
the verge of tumbling in. The whole
section was aroused aud every man
responded. They ere still working
and a crevasse has been avoided by
building practically new levees.
At Pike's Peak levee in St. James,
across the river, the parish was not
only aioused, but tho Texas & Pacific
carried a lot of men aud material, and
twenty-four hours' work avoided a
catastrophe, fo- forty feet of tho levee
had bloughcd off. A crevasse there
would have done twice as much dam
ago as the Mississippi breaks. Oa
Bonne Torre, on this side of the river,
an army has been tit work a week. A
crevasse there would remove all fea
sible danger to New Orleans. The
citizens have largely augmented tho
levee board's force in New Orleans
and I.UOO men are at work. Today
there was a conference let ween the
citizens aDd officers and it is proposed
to guarantee enough money to rui?e
the long cordon of banks around tho
city. Mayor Flower has ordered not
to sparo houses or streets in sccurirg I
earth or room wherever extra work!
is needed to injure safety. So far only
one house bus been torn down, but tho
work has only begun.
Will Organise a liicyrle Club.
Au effort is being put forth to or
ganize an up-to-dato bicycle club in
this city for ihe purpose of putting the
one-third mile track at the fair
grounds in shape, and making regular
evening and Sunday runs. This will,
no doubt, prove i f benefit to all con
cerned. A meeting will bo held one
evening next week with the object of
completing the organization.
