They said he was the worst man on the river, yet he showed thein
that the soul of a man and the heart of a man would not perish
A while the spirit willed that they should live.
HIS romantic novel of life, love, war, intrigue and revenge
on the Mississippi in the early Colonial days, captures
the imagination, thrills the soul, and illustrates that even an un
principled gambler and card sharper may yet redeem the life

Slept on Depot Steps.
Arthur Wilson, it personal friend
of John Barleycorn showed the local
police his attentions wire all right
but that is executions were very
poor when he was run in, Thursday
night by the big noise of the police
force. Artie, who is a Tennessee imp
putation that has recently been cm
ployed at the Nehawka stone quar
ries, happened to ramble into the city
Thursday afternoon on his way to
Omaha. He liked the town pretty
well anil decided to celebrate his
visit by annexing a few long, cold
ones. He was informed by the po
lice that hit had about reached his
capacity and that he had better prg-
ceed on 1 is way. That is where he
showed his intentions were all right.
He managed to find the Missou Pa
cific depot, but he couldn't find any
train, f-o he reposed hiin-tclf in the' door
way, using soniL' peanut shells as a
pillow for his weary head. lie was in
this position, wrapped in the arms of
Morpheus, when the golice seized him
and hurried him away to the realm of
the rats and mice guarded by Prof.
In police court Friday morning,
Aitie plead guilty to being a liitle
under ihe weather, for which he was
ordered to fork over one bean ami
incidentals. As he was in rather hard
straights financially and was in a hurry
to get to Omaha, the fine was ffus
petided and he shook the l'lattsmouth
dust from his shoes.

THRASHER AND WIFE
AT GOLDEN WEDDING.
Mrs. Thrasher Was Present When
Knot Was Tied riUy
Colouel J. H. Thrasher and wife
have returned from a big (Jolden
wedding anniversary , held in Iowa
last week, Mr. Thrasher arriving home
Wednesday night and Mrs. Thrasher
making the retirn trip the latter part
of the week. The couple who have
enjoyed each other company for the
past half century are Mr. ami Mrs.
11. II. Davis, old residents of Persia,
Iowa. The l'lattsmouth people left
here a week ago Saturday, arriving
there Sunday, the big celebration
of their anniversary taking place
all day Monday and up until break
fast lime Tuesday norning, but lis
ihe colonel did not return until Wed
nesday night, there must have been
some of the festivities that were car
ried over. There were 2jS guests
present, a large proportion of them
being relatives. Mrs. Thrasher, sis
ter of the bride, was present at the wed
ding of the couple fifty years ago.
The miii'iNier at the ceremony cou
ched thai the marriage had expired
and I hey had better renew it for
another lifty years, so the party went
through the complete ceremony as
they had done fifty years ago. Cou
sins, grand-children and great-graiu!-chiMicn,
wiiiK resided in the vicinity
of Persia in Harrison county, turned
out by the score in their automo
biles and carriages, and not only Mr.
Davi-' house, but those of his iwo
sons who reside in the same block,
were filled to the windows with the
visitors. A large school building of
which one of the Daivses was super
intendent, was situated across the
street from the old Davis home, ami
by permission, the building was turned
into a dining hall for the feast of the
fatted calf, or more properly, of the
Monday evening the house was
turned over to the young people for
dancing, and they kept the floor filled
until hreakfa.it time the next u:vning.
Mr. Thrasher thought he had one of
the best times of his life, and he thinks
that if he ate every day as he did at
that dinner, he would soon have to
ai.lnch a wheel-barrow onto hi: bread

caped the heavy load as it turned over,
The horses were quieted without any
damage being done, with the excep
tion of the smashed wheel. Another
wagon was secured and the men work
t d through the supper hour in loading
up the the bales and hauling tho dis
