Shooting Affray at Nehawka.
The "Nehawka Register says: Last
Monday evening sime of our citizens
were witnesses to a fistic encounter
Jietweon Joe McCunahae and Earl
Griffeth, two young men who have
reen working in this vicinity for some
time. It seems as though the whole
affair originated over apme of poker,
and also some threats made by one of
the parties. So they both went at it
in the above manner to see who was in
the right. A few blows were struck
by each, when they were separated.
But no sooner had this been accom
plished than Griffeth went home and
got a revolver and started out to find
McCunahae. They again met and had
some words, and the gun was son in
play, which was used by Griffeth as a
defense. Three shots were fired by
him, but all were wide of the desired
mark, and we are glad to know that
nothing more serious happened than
a few bruises for both men.

Work Was Not Satisfactory.
The Iapillion Times says: of all
the over-grown fakes that ever struck
this county that man Emmons who
came down from Lincoln last Friday
with a pair of alleged blood-hounds to
run down th- thieves who rohljed
Herman Sanders' store, is entitled to
tirst money. In the first place his
dogs could not trail an elephant in
snow a foot deep. In the next place
Emmons would not let the dogs work
if they could and wanted to. After a
half hour's effort which seemed to en
courage the idea that the dotrs were
possibly on the right trail Emmons
called them off and quit the chase
claiming it was too hot to work.
Later in the evening, after lie had ex
hibited sundry newspajer clippings of
alleged captures, which he claimed to
have accomplished with his dogs, to
nearly every inhabitant of iapillion,
another effort was made which ended
when the great sleuth landed in
South Omaha, where he refused to
chase anything but red liquor and
habitants of the Ited Light theater,
not forgetting, however, he received
from Mr. Sanders the sum of -?20 to
pay the expenses of his day's outincr.

Fishing Party Has Grief.
A fishing party composed of Messrs.
Hans Gxs, Otto Bookmeyer, Henry
Jess, Anton Hudecek, James Eebal,
Otto Wurl, Ben Elson and Frank Mc
Elroy went up on the Platte last Mon
day, with all the necessary parapha
nalia and supplies for a royal good
time. The party was transported to
the fishing grounds by carryall, which
they chartered from Ed Fitzgerald.
They arrived at their destination all
right, and proceeded to enjoy them
selves as is customary on such occa
sions. Before long one of the horses
showed symptoms of being sick, and
in spite of the efforts of the entire
party to relieve the animal's distress
it laid down and died. This naturally
caused a cloud of gloom to settle down
over the joyous spirits of t lie fisher
men, which was intensified about sup
per time, when it was discovered that
some of t he natives had consumed al
most all the lunch that remained from
the noon-time meal, and had made
heavy drafts on the liquid portion of
the commissary department. A farmer
who lived in the neighborhood was
paid 2 to drag the dead horse down to
the river and dump it in. and $3 more
to hitch his team to the carryall
and haul them home. But the usual
joyousness was sadly lacking, and the
few fish which they secured were not
very highly prized. Ben Elson s share
of the damages caused by the death
of the horse is modestly reckoned at
$1.1 by the other members of the party,
but Ben won't stand for it.

The domestic troubles of Mr. and

An Attempted Hold-Up.
An attempt was made to hold up
and rob George Sayles, of Cedar Creek,
last Saturday evening. Mr. Sayles
was returning in his buggy from Weep
ing Water, when he overtook a man
walking along the road who asked for
a ride. His request was about to be
complied with, and the team was
stopped to allow him to get in the
buggy. But instead of getting in the
stranger put his foot on the hub of
the front wheel, and producing a re
volver which he pointed directly at
Sayles' head, demanded that he hand
over his money and valuables. Al
though taken completely by surprise,
Sayles did not lose his nerve and com
ply with the highwayman's demand
Instead he handed the fellow a stun
ning blow in the face, which knocked
him down. In falling the highwayman
discharged the revolver, which fright
ened the horses, causing them to run.
The robber was thus left alone, lying
in the road, while Sayles gave his at
tention to checking the team, which
he succeeded in doing when out of
range of the highwayman's gun. No
clue as to the identity of the man who
attempted the hold-up has been dis
covered. Services at St. Luke's Church.
Itev. H . B. Burgess, pastor of St.

Brings Suit for Slander.
The Young-Alford scandal, which
has leen more or less discussed alut
town for the past two or three weeks,
has at last got into the courts, where
it will 1k duly reviewed and deter
mined. Mrs. Lavina Alford, by her attor
ney, Judge Chapman, has commenced
an action in district court against
Mary Young, claiming damages in the
sum of lo.(MK) for slander. The jieti
tion alleges '-that on July !th. and at
various other times since, the defend
ant has w ickedly, wantonly and mali
ciously spoken and published certain
false, scandalous and malicious words,
leaving the impression that said plain
tiff had criminal and illicit relations
with the defendant's husband."
The plaintiff. Mrs. Alford. has been
a resident of Plattsmouth for many
years, and has always borne a gofid
reputation. Since thei death of her
husband, several years ago, she has
earned her livelihood by doing wash
ing, and is a hard-working woman.
The reports concerning her, which she
complains of, has distressed her to
such an extent that she has left her
home here and removed to Omaha,
w here she has found employment.
The defendant, Mrs. Mary Young,
is the wife of George W. Young, who
was formerly county commissioner.
Mrs. Young is said to be a woman of
very jealous disposition, so much so
that at times she appears demented
or out of her mind. Since the culmi
nation of this affair, on July 9th, she
has kept the neighborhood in which
they live in a constant uproar, and has
undoubtedly furnished food for consid
George W. Young, who is also in
volved in the case, is well and favora
bly known throughout Cass county,
lie is an old resident here, and served
for six years as a member of the board
of county commissioners. lie is a man
of good repute and correct habits, and
people who know him would not for a
moment believe him guilyof the acts
charged by his wife. He is simply the
victim of his wife's jealous hallucina
tion, and has the genuine sympathy of
all his friends in the domestic trouble
that has been thrust ujKin him.
The parties involved in this case re
side on the south side of Granite
street, U-tween Eighth and Ninth,
and their property adjoins. On the
evening of the 9th of July Mrs. Al
ford'scow became afflicted with some
kind of complaint, and Mr. Young,
acting in a neightmrly spirit, and as
any man would under similar circum
stances, tendered his services to assist
in caring for the cow. While he and
Mrs. Alford were thus engaged Mrs.
Young appeared on the scene, and im
mediately proceed to create a disturb

intimate. She has since repeated her
accusation, until Mrs. Alford could
stand it no longer, and removed to

Henry Jess was one of the fishing
party which went up to the Platte on
Monday, and shared equally with the
others the grief, discomforts and ex
penses of the trip. Hut this was com

prise that awaited his return home,
when he discovered that during his
absence some one had abstracted an
envelope containing 3 in bills from
his cash register and left no clue be

paled into insignificance at this discovery.
