There was a gay throng present to

Another Happy Event.
Mr. Charles Dill and Miss Jennie
I'hilpotwcre married in Omaha yes
terday and last evening returned to
the home ot the bride's parents, Mr,
and Mrs. Charles Phllpot, southeast of
Murray, where the occasion was celc
brated in grand style, a large number
of friends being invited in to give the
young people a hearty welcome and ex
tend congratulations to the happy
couple; and from one who was there
we understand those present had
most enjoyable time.
Mr. Dill Is the son of Mr. and Mrs
II. Dill, one of our most highly respect
ed citizens, and the bride Is thedaugh
terof Mr. and Mrs. Charles Phllpot
residing near Weeping Water, and Is
a most highly respected young lady.
The young people have hosts of friends
In this vicinity who have none but the
best wishes for their future happiness
and success. The younn people will
make their home near Murray.
Who Could Do It?
In conversation with Mr. C. II. Long
while In Murray yesterday he tells us
that some very mean Individual start
ed a report In and around Murray to
effect that llobert Slirader's car of
household goods and implements was
attached In Plattsmouth last week for
a small bill that he was endeavoring
to leave behind. Mr. Long wishes us
to statb that this is a falsehood of the
deepest kind, and that he wuuld be
pleased to meet the "gentleman" that
started the report. Mr. Shrader, like
all of his family, have always borne a
reputation that was above reproach
for honesty, and it Is certainly a mean
trick for some one to start such a re
port when the party Injured Is not pre
sent to put up a defense. There Is
nothing In It and the relatives defy
the author to prove the same.

Surgical Cast Found.
NVhlle In the city on business a few
evenings since, Dr. (tilmure of Mur
ray left his team tied at one of the
hitch racks while attending to these
duties. lie had placed his surgical
case, which he always carries with
him, in the back part of the buggy,
and when he returned to the vehicle
the case was gone. The doctor kept
luiet about the matter in the hope
that the thief might be apprehended
A day or two later, Gld Archer, who
was employed in working on some
street crossings, near the Black pro
perty, in the nbrth part of the city,
went over to the Black house for some
purpose and there he discovered the
missing case. Not caring to take
charge of It, he reported his find to
Mayor C.ering, and going up to the
house with Gld It was brought down
to the drug store, where it remains for
the owner. In the meantime, Dr
Gilmorehad given up hopes of ever
finding his instruments and oi tiered a
new case, and now possesses a double
dose. There is too much of such steal
ing done in this city, and unless more
vigilance Is pursued in apprehending
the thieves, people will cease coming
to riattsmoutli altogether. If this
was the only Incident of this charac
ter, it would not be su bad, but many
farmers lose whips and lap-robes, who
never say anything about their losses.
A Fine Time.
One of the most successful surprise
parties held In this section for many a
day was given at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. John Farls, on Monday evening of
this week, the occasion being the :!."th
birthday anniversary of Mr. Paris.
The alTair was planned by Mrs. Farls
and Mr. Copenhaver and was certainly
complete in every particular, although
ti e attendance was not as lame as w as
anticipated, owing to the very stormy
evening, but those who braved the
storm were very glad of it asthey were
repaid with interest, in the way of en
joy'ng a most pleasant time.
The evening was spent in playing
numerous games and at the usual hour
a most excellent supper was served.
When the merry crowd departed for
home the only regret was that Mr.
Paris' birthday did not come often

THE OMAHA JAIL BREAKERS
The Old Soldier Marshal of Louisville
Who Captured Them.
RECEIVES THE $100 REWARD OFFERED
The Omaha World-Herald of this
morning contains the following rela
tive to the capture at Louisville of
the jail birds, who have again been
safely landed In the Omaha Jail. "W.
A. Johnson, the marshal of Louisville,
who captured the Douglas county
prisoners. Berry and Ituckley, last
Monday, came to Omaha Wednesday
and received from the sheriff the $100
reward for thelrcapture. Their little
escapade has already cost the sheriff
close on to 1200.
''Marshal Johnson is a man 71! years
old and an old veteran of the confed
erate army. He had not yet received
Sheriff McDonald's circular telling of
the escape of the men, but he was
attracted to Buckley by remembering
having seen his "mug" In an old copy
of the Detective.
''Dick Myers was the youth who re
captured Berry after that crook had
knocked the marshal down and at
tempted to escape the second time.
But that Johnson lost the shells from
his pistol he would probably have
killed Berry, as he snapped the weapon
at the fugitive as the latter stood
almost directly over him.
"Mayor Maylield, of Louisville, who
had once turned Berry and Buckley
loose and ordered them out of town,
came to Omaha with Mr. Johnson.
"John P.erry is confined in the same
cell from which he escaped, but he is
now kept locked In the steel cage and
is not allowed the freedom of a coridor
except under the eye of an armed
"Buckley, highwayman, burglar and
robber, was taken to prison at Lincoln
NVednesday morning by Sheriff Mc
Donald. "Buckley starts serving his fifteen
year sentence a broken down, dissipat
ed, stooped and helpless old man. Big
tears rolled down his hard, seamed
face when he was sentenced and lie
has sat in his cell since a spiritless,
hopeless, pathetic ligureof a man."
