Mary and Her Mule.
Mary, a nice little girl, lived so far
from the sehoolhouse that she rode a
little blue-eyed, confiding mule to the!
hall of 'earning. The teacher thought
it unwise to allow the animal to ara.e
about unhitched, so lie attempted to
club it away. The rest of the story is
told in these expressive lines:
Mary had a little mule.
It followed her to school:
That was against the rule.
The teacher, like a fool,
Got behind the mule,
And hit him with a rule.
After that there was no school.

Four towns destroyed
OVER HALF ACENTURY AGO
A Former Citizen of Cass County Tells of
Scenes of Over Fifty Years Since.
Xauka, Kan, April ID, Iimni.
Eiutou J 01 'UN a 1.: 1 see tliitt Jmle
I!. S. Ilanisey has contributed an In
terostintr article for the Journal ing
an incident that happened forty years
atfo In old Cass. I will no hack fifty
years and then some.
My rather left Magnolia, Iowa, on
the "th day of July, 1S.'3, with covered
wagons, landing in Council lilulTs, the
latter part of the month. After re
maining there a month we went over
to Omaha. The walls of the old cap
ital were about five feet hlh. Here
we were offered a brick house and two
lots for ."i0, but not beintf favorably
Impressed with the surroundings we
emigrated further south.
We crossed the Missouri liver at
Kenosha on the Mil of August, and
rented a house from John Mel'. Hay
good, the big man of the town; then
bought the Hock Kind's town site from
Spiers - France. In the following
month of September there was an In
dian scare 011 Salt Creek. Citizens of
Nebraska City sent a runner up to our
part, while others went from that
place. A company was formed and
father was the first captain. The
government guns were on a boat that
landed at Hock Uluffs the evening be
fore, so they sent me to Omaha after
more guns. I had to cross the river at
Plattsmouth and re-cross at St. Marys
on account of the Platte river. I
made the ferryman agree to take me
back at daylight the next morning.
I gave the letter I carried with me
to General Thayer. I did not go to
bed at all and the general sat up with
me until 2 o'clock in the morning,
then I started back to the ferry. As
soon as I arrived at home I Immedi
ately started to join the company and
got out to Cedar Creek about sundown
the same day, making the trip to
Omaha and return and then out to
Cedar Creek in twenty-four hours,
without a wink of sleep. Here I met
J. Ashley and Mr. Haygood and re
turned with them, Mr. Ashley In the
lead, but got us lost. I took the lead
then from Drown 's place to the old
Joe Martin place and arrived at home
The next occurrence of Importance
was the territorial convention on Icock
Creek, where the old telegrapli line
crossed the creek. The Omaha resi
dents came down and the Nebraska
City folks came up. The politics of
the state was divided by two sections
North Platte and South Tlatte or
Omaha against Nebraska City. We
also held our county convention at the
same time. That was the first time 1
met J. Sterling Morton. He made an
excellent speech that day.
At the election which followed, Rev.
Mr. Gage, of Mt. Pleasant, and Mr.
Layard were elected representatives.
Mr. Gage had the honor of naming
Gage county Layard got nothing.
Mr. Haygood tried hard to get the
penitentiary located at Kenosha, but
failed. Mr. Lucas, of Winterstcen
Hill, and Wm. Ellington tried twice
for sheriff, and the third time Elling
ton received a majority and was de
L. W. Pattkksox.
P. S. If the above fails to find the
waste basket I w ill tell you something
about our survey. L. W. P.

iwing to different arrangements be
Ing made with Adolph Clese, the new
proprietor that takes charge of the

Mr. (iiesc has a family and the second
story of the building will be remodeled
and placed into living appartmcnts
for his accommodation. Mr. McElroy
has rented the LehnhotT building ad
joining the Schlitz room on the east,
ami will remove his tailoring parlors
thereto about the first of May, occu
pying the ground floor. He will cer
tainly have a much better room.
THE MERCHANTS' CARNIVAL
Many Wu Displays, and As a Whole. Was
Declared a B j Success.
A VERY URGE CROWD IN ATTENDANCE
E. G. D:ieylSoa Awarded First and Mrs.
Holland and John Crabill Second Prizes.
The Merchants' Carnival given un
der the auspices of the Euterpean Glee
Club Friday night was a great success,
the balcony and Moor being crowded to
the full capacity. Many beautiful and
artistic displays were made by various
merchants of the city and the prize
for the must tastely arranged booth
was a aided with difficulty, as all the
booths were very handsome.
A committee of three men were se
lected from the transients at the Klley
Hotel, in order that an impartial deci
sion might he rendered. After an ex
tended inspection of the different dis
plays, the committee awarded E. !.
Hovcy Son first prize and Mrs, How
land ami John Crahill second prize.
The program was carried out as pub
lished in the papers, and was highly
appreciated by the large audience, who
vigorously encored the Platt.sonlan
iiiartet, which favored them with
three well rendered selections.
At the close of the musical program
II. 11. Windham by few well timed re
marks informed the irathering that,
for' those who could not read, a sign
was placedover the dining room doors,
and that they would be amply repaid
with delicious refreshments, should
they venture within the feast hall.
All of the displays were very unique
and much Interest was manifested in
ranger's exhibit, which contained his
first slock and present stock of goods.
The demonstrations of the gas stoves
by Perry t'tterback and Mr. K nicely,
of the Nebraska Lighting Company,
were witnessed with pleasure by many
of the men as well as women. The
carnhal biike up at a late hour, ami
every one seemed to have had the best
time, and enjoyed the evening.
Some of the large department stores
in the large cities sent cut oilers to
form clubs and promise to sell goods
cheaper than they can he purchased of
the home merchant. Clubs were or
ganized in some towns and after they
had purchased several bills of goods
the members found they were not get
ting goods as cheap as they could pur
chase them at home, so the organiza
tion went to pieces and the members
went back again to purchasing from
home merchants. If people would
form a club at home, bunch their casli
and purchase as large hills from the
home merchants as they send away
for they would be leaving their money
with home merchants, aiding them in
paying their share of the tax burden
and building up the town. However,
people cannot expect to purchase goods
as cheap from the home merchant on
credit and have him wait for a year or
perhaps longer for his money, as
they Jean for cash. Pay cash and
you can always buy here as cheap, if
not cheaper than you can by sending
away from home. Try it and be con
vinced. Ir) the Supreme Court.
In the matter of Cole vs, Manners,
In the supreme court, the decision of
the lower court was affirmed. Follow
ing is a syllabus of the case:
1. An Injury which can not be
measured by any pecuniary standard,
or which, because of Its nature of the
financial condition of the wrongdoer,
can not be adequately compensated In
damages, Is irreparable within the
meaning of the law, and one for which,
ordinarily, there Is no adequate rem
edy at law.
2. The general rule, that a valid de
fense as'to one of two joint obligors
innuresto the benefit of both Is sub
ject to the exception, that when such
defense Is infancy, the Infant may be
discharged and a recovery had as to
his co-obligor; and this exception, ap
plies although the obligee knew of the
Infancy when he took the obligation.
:i. Ordinarily, a lease may be avoid
ed by a tenant on the ground of the
Infancy, but while In possession there
under, the plea of infancy Is not avail
able In a suit brought to restrain him
from making use of his possession to
Inlllct Irreparable Injuries upon his

and held sufficient to sustain the de

"Several years since my lungs were
so badly alfectcd that I had many
hemorrhages," writes A. M. Ake, of
Wood, Ind. "I took treatment with
several physicians without any bene
fit. I then started to take Foley's
Honey and Tar, and my lungs arc now
as sound as a bullet. I recommend It
