Editors, reporters and writers in gen eral have from time to time tried to give their idea of the meanest man. but some of these characters were the children of a diseased imagination. The meanest skulk this side of perdition, this is a living fact, is the thief who stole from thirty-five to forty of Mrs. Klaurens' largest fries Suuday evening. These were incubator chickens, raised early and with great care and patient labor. Now something in the form of man stole them stole the labors of a woman. Such a thief is classed with a sheep-killing dog, although to the dis credit of the dog. And now, Mr. Chicken Thief, when you stand before the bar of justice with tilth and chicken feathers I on your rotten raiment, your sentence, before a jury of cut throats, honorable men compared to you, would be a life term in the pen.

Prohibition Fifty Convention Not as a delegate convention for that is a thing of the past but in a mass convention at the city of Lincoln today the prohibitionists cohorts are gathering. They have their ideas as to what is the proper things to do " in regard to the liquor traffic in the state and nation. While they are not so large in numbers they make up for that in the loyalty to the cause they espouse. There will no doubt be a large number of the faith ful congregated at the capitol city, to devise ways and means for the stop ping and keeping stopped the manu facture and sale of intoxicating liquors, within our borders. Since the new law went into effect they cannot meet in delegate convention, but are compelled to assemble in mass convention, which makes everybody a delegate who be lieves as do the prohibitionists.

FOR THE JOURNAL REA DEBS. office it will appear under this heading PROMINENT FACTOR IN CITY'S GROWTH In the city of Natick, Rhode Island, June 16, 1839, Henry J. Streight was bom and here he lived until he was six teen years old. In the state of Rhode Island his father, Jason Streight, was a harness-maker, and also ran a con fee tionary store and a livery stable, and at all these Henry helped his father. Dur ing his younger days he had an ambition to become a sailor and this has stayed with him ever since, but the combining of circumstances has caused his life to be spent in different lines. In the year 1849, when the gold ex citement was at its height, S. H. Tefft, a brother of his mother, became imbued with the desire to see the gold fields and to dig and acquire the precious metal, so he went to California, and in return ing became enamored with western Iowa. After returning he talked up the countries and the possibilities which it offered to the extent that his father was induced to move to Iowa. Not being sure he would like it he asked Henry to stay and look after matters in Natick He told his father that he had better not leave him in charge of affairs as there was a possibility that he might take a notion to go to sea. His father said he would solve that problem and so placed the business in shape and took young Henry with him, starting for the west. The . means of . traveling were not the best in those days. They took the train to Syracuse, New York, and thence to Buffalo, crossing Lake Erie, and down through Georgian Bay and Lake Michigan to Chicago, and arrived in Iowa at a point about five miles north of where Red Oak now stands, in Sep tember, 1855. Here at a place they called Hazel Dell, they built a dam in Nishnabotna river and prepared to build a saw mill as the country was rapidly developing and there was no lumber and no railroads to carry any from outside points. During that fall and winter they had about gotten the mill ready for use when they received word that one of them would have to go back east and see to some business which was left unfinished at home. It was decided that Henry go, so in March he started and was follow ed by his father in July. Having settl- ,ed up- allr the basiness they, started for the west in September, bringing the family with them, also the family of Mr. Tefft who remained there when they went back. The route which they had traveled before was a very pleasant one and they wished to make it again but in getting on the wrong train they were not carried across Lake Michigan as they intended. This was somewhat of a disappointment to them but it was soon turned to joy, for the boat which they were to cross the lake on, the Ni agara, was burned on that trip and thirty lives lost. When they arrived at Iowa City, the terminus of the railroad, they found Mr. Tefft waiting and ready to take the next train east as he had heard of the catastrophy of the Niagara and supposed them all lost. They did a good business with the saw mill for a year or two, then selling it and buying a half interest in a store -at Frankfort which was about six miles southeast of Hazel Dell or what is known now as Stennet, and about the same dis- ance from Red Oak. Here they done a good business and kept a force of four clerks, one of whom was Henry Streight, whose duty it wa3 to keep the books of the firm. After a year Henry went into business for himself, running it about a year when he sold out and went to Pike's Peak in 1860 where he mined for a short period, returning to Frankfort, Iowa, during 1861, and enlisted in the 5th ba talion of cavalry attached to the 25th Missouri infantry, company C, during the summer and at the battle of Lex ington the company was captured and paroled. Mr. Streight then came to Plattsmouth and worked for August Rheinacle three months at the harness trade in a building near where the Standard Oil company house stands, on the corner of Pearl and Second, begin ing in March, 1862. Resigning his po sition he again enlisted in the service and was mustered out in February, 1863. His father sold his store in Frankfort, Iowa, and they engaged in the harness business where Kraft's Clothing store now stands and during that summer ran a meat wagon from here to Oreapolis which was a good little town at that time. On November 22, 1863, Henry J. Streight and Miss Elizabeth C. Wells were united in marriage. He still con tinued in the harness business with his father; during the summer of 1864 he enlisted again, this time in the 1st Ne braska, company B, for four months service under General R. R. Livingston whose operations were against the In dians and after the term was out, con tinued in the harness business until 1867. Selling out to his father he engaged in the confectionary business adding toys, notions, and finally gents furnishing goods but after a short time discontinu ed the latter. When Capt. C. A. Marsh all was postmaster he ran his store in the lobby of the postoftice. After dis posing of the store he engaged in the hotel business, running the Saunders house until 1876, when he went to South Bend and engaged in the grain, stock and general merchandise business. There he stayed for ten years, at the end o that time he returned to Plattsmouth to take charge of the canning factory which was in operation then. Here he continued for a period of two years and at the end of this time he was appoint ed postmaster where he served for the space of five years and was succeeded bv W. II. Fox. having served in this position from 1888 to 1893. In 1892 he bought Henry Boeck's stock of furniture and in partnership wit John P. Sattler, engaged in the furni ture business, occupying the Boeck building where they were at the time of the flood of July 6, 1898, in which he was a heavy loser. - in uecember, lyuz, he bought am moved into the building where he and his son, W. J. Streight, now have thei store. The floods of 1893 did them con siderable damage, the firm still being Streight & Sattler. September 1, 1898, Will J. Streight succeeded Mr. Sattler, the firm becoming Streight & Streight, which do the business now. In 1865 Mr. Streight joined the Odd Fellows, Platte lodge No. 7, and still remains a member. He remembers of having seen a deer pass along Sixth street in front of where Zuckweiler & Lutz now have a store, and over by the old gas house and into the timber which skirted the creek then. Mr. btreight and wile have just re turned from a trip to a number of Iowa points among which was Red Oak, and the little towns at which he lived during the latter fifties and early sixties. The town of Frankfort, which had a park and business houses all around it and a population of something over two hun dred people is entirely gone now. He brought back a piece of walnut board from the sidinsr of the first house that was built in Montgomery county, Iowa and the logs of which he hauled and were sawed at the mill he and his father built in 1855-6. During all this time Mr. Streight has been a worker, and always treated his fellow men as he would like to have them treat him. During the whole of his life he has not a made an enemy f hat has remained such for any length of time, and at this time can give the rierht hand of fellowship to all. He has endeavored to be obedient to his maker, faithful to his country and fraternal to his fellow men. Success. , ...

The habit of taking too much of phy sics, .that is, puis ana strong, remedies for constipation is almost universal, and there is no greater mistake made, Taken in time such a remedy is certainly a blessing, while it paralyzes the intes tines, if used continually, Where you find some irregularity in the activity of your digestive organs, you must not seek relief only, but yon should go to the root of the evil. You will have to use Triner's American Elixir of Bitter Wine. This remedy acts directly on the stomach and makes it capable to accept and prepare the food for a thor ough digestion in the intestines. It acts on the delicate muscles of the bow ls, giving them tone to finish the di gestion and to make new blood, and after a short period you will be able to discard all pills, Use it in all diseases of the stomach and the intestines.

No Panic; Women Brave. Eight minutes after the San Pedro truck the Columbia the latter vessel had filled with water and sunk. The night saloon watchman notified all the passengers to go to the upper deck. Without clothing they climbed out of their berths and rushed out. It was only two or three minutes be fore the decks were awash. Six boats and three liferafts were cut loose and as many passengers as pos sible were crowded into them. There .were ? scarcely, . any .. evidence , of , panic, me women acting witn nero Ism. The crew of the San Pedro immedf ately lowered a boat and picked up a large number oX survivors. Capt. Doran and First Officer Whit, ney were on the deck when the Col umbia sank, the captain's last words being: "God bless you." Blame Columbia's Officers. O. Swan son, a sailor of the San Pedro, was at the wheel Saturday night when the fatal collision oc curred. In his report to Sailors' Agent John Erlckson, the blame is laid upon the shoulders of the Colum bia's officers. Other members of the crew of the San Pedro substantiate the story of Swanson.
