HE GETS HIS PANTS TORN A Seranader of the Newly Married John Beck and Wife Gets Treed. Happy in the love, which was the cause of the union of two hearts and lives, John Beck and wife were spend ing their first evening at the home of their friend, George Halmes. when a party came to seranade them. When the first sounds of the hub-bub was heard, the young couple thought that they were to be disturbed from the en joyment of each other's company, but the dogs which make their home at Mr. Halmes' and of which there are "a plenty, ' ' took a hand in the game, and there was a scatterment of the serana ders in a hurry. Some secured re treat by the way of the road, some one way and some another, all making their "getaway" with the exception of one luckless youth, who finding no othor avenue of escape save the straw-pile from last summer's threshing, and climbing that was persued by a partic ular vicious dog, who was more of an adept at climbing straw stacks than seranader, and getting hold of the "neither end" of the lad's pants made carpet rags of them. By dint of hard work the dog was finally kicked off and the young man, who gave his name as Chas. Brown, but we fear it is not the correct one, slipped down on the oppo site side, and circling the barn got away. The happy man in the house said to his winsome bride, after the dogs had quited down, "They are pret ty good dogs, ain't they?" The pants were at the tailor shop of Frank McEl roy for repair this morning, and they looked as though some one had gone over more than a straw stack in a hur ry at that. Friends Surprise Mrs. W. H. Scott A number of friends of Mrs. W. H. Scott met at her house for the purpose of surprising her, only to find her away from home yesterday, and as she had gone to the country found her by telep hone, and she hastened her return. A very good time was had, and as it was her birthday, and the twentieth anni versary of her wedding, they had a very enjoyable occasion. Music and games, interspersed with social conver sation occupied them, on departing they wished their friends many joyful years yet to come, and sealed the com pact with many a beautiful present. Satisfactory Progress. Edward Rankin, the switchman at Pacific Junction, who suffered the loss of his left hand in an accident while at tempting to cross a train standing, in the yards at that place about two weeks since, was in the city today and re ports very satisfactory progress toward the healing of the injured member. PLEASANT FARE WELL REGEPTIOTJ Mrs. George M. Porter Gives Farewell Party to Members of Her Sunday School and Symphony Club. Last evening, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. M. Porter, was gathered a merry party of young people, the occa sion being a departing reception, given in honor of Miss Pearl Barker, a mem ber of the Symphony Club, which par tially constitute the choir at the Chris tian church and Ray Barker, Sidney Miner and Westley Barker, members of Mrs. Porter's Sunday school class. Next Monday Sidney Miner is the move to Bethany, near Lincoln, while the Barker boys and their sister will depart Tuesday for Tekama, Burt county, where they will make their future home. The Porter home was beautifully decor ated for the occasion. The tables were arranged in the spacious dining room in the form of a square and decorated with flowers and ribbons looped in fes toons and streamers from the gas fix tures on the ceiling and coming to the corners of the table, making a decidedly pretty and harmonious effect. Mrs. Porter was assisted in serving by Misses Anna Fry and Edith Buzzell the elegant two course luncheon which was given as a portion of the evening's entertain ment. Music, both instrumental and vocal interspersed with some new and hitting games, corresponding mirth pro voking and producing almost one con tinuous roar of laughter. The departing of these young people from our community and from the as sociations of the church, will be felt, as they were always ready and willing to do their part of whatever was required of them. More especially does Mrs. Porter feel the loss of them, as in the Symphony Club she always could de pend on the best services from Miss Pearl Barker as a help in the singing or the furnishing of music for any occa sion. In the Sunday school class, again were they in readiness to perform any thing required oi them, emphasizad in the persons of Ray and Westly Barker and Sidney Miner, to the extent tha the teaching of the class became a real pleasure. With the members of both club and class, the best wishes go with the departing, and that they may find pleasant associations and good work in their new home, is the earnest desire. Those present of the Sympony Club were: Misses Minnie Fry, Ada Porter, Mollye Godwin, Minnie McKay, Pearl Parker, Blanch O'Neal, Grace Porter and Ruth Reynolds. While the Sunday school class present were: Ray Barker, Cecil.Glenn, Clair Thomas, Philip Rhin, Ratio Taylor, Westley Barker, Oscar Wilson, James Hunter, Jesse Perry, Sidney Miner, Russell Stander, Lester Burrows, John Stander, George Foster, Chas. Mapes, Ed Reynolds, Ralph Mul lis and Clyde Adimons. Cards of Thanks. We wish to express our sincere thanks to those friends who so kindly minister ed and assisted at the funeral, to those who contributed the beautiful floral offerings and for the many acts of kindness, tokens of love for our beloved husband, brother and son, after his death and at the funeral.

Ignorance, of Course It would seem as though the democrats would be generous enough in Nebraska to let the populists have the candidate for governor, since they are to have the honor of furnishing the candidate for president. One would naturally sup pose that Mr. Bryan's friends would feel like conceding the gubernatorial nomination to Mr. Berge, who is un doubtedly the choice of the populists of Nebraska for the head of the fusion ticket, Plattsmouth News. The above 13 a fair sample of the manner in which the republican papers deal with the democrats. Whether the Plattsmouth News published the above through ignorance or maliciousness we do not know, but for its enlightement we would state that at the last registration in Lincoln Mr. Berge registered as a" democrat. And we also want to say that should Mr. Berge be nominated h would be acceptable to a majority of the voters of the state. Nebraska City News.

The spec ial to theWorld-Herald is un der date of February 25: A big delegation of Nebraska educa tors, in Washington for the National Educational association convention, "did" Washington today and enjoyed some real adventures. The delagation includes J. L. Mc Brien, state superintendent; E. C. Bis hop, deputy state superintendent; J. W. Crabtree of Peru, A. O. Thomas of Kearney, E. J.

Disgusted and insist- Receives Telegram From Callao Mrs. Kate Rheinackle yesterday re ceived a message from her son, Will j Rheinackle, who is on the American fleet now at Callao, Peru, in which he i says they are all well and having a fine time, and that they had just witnessed a bull fight held for their especial delectation. It will be remembered that Will was here last summer to see his mother, and departed with the fleet when it sailed for Pacific waters. THE PAYMASTER IS INSANE Sudden Affliction Delays Ar rival of Missouri Pacific Pay Car. The Missouri Pacific pay car has long been overdue and the employes of the road at this point have been wondering as to the whereabouts of their last month's pay check. Although the pay has not forthcoming, and ex planation has been made. It seems that the pay car left St. Louis on time with Paymaster Harkness in charge. When the car reached Jefferson City, Mo., it was learned that at some time on the trip the paymaster had become mentally unbalanced and that he had been giving out checks without taking receipts and that his affairs were in such shape that it was impossible for the car to proceed until the tangle was straighnened out. This may require some time and in the meantime the em ployes will have to wait for what is coming to then. This instance recalls to the minds of railway men the fact that a former paymaster for this road became deranged and committed sui cide. Goes With Bell Company. E. H. Elton, formerly with the Plat tsmouth Telephone Company, has re signed his position, and accepted a position with the Bell Telephone com pany, being what is termed the Sub License for the county, with headquar ters at this place. Mr Elton has been in the telephone business for the past sixteen years, and during that time has worked in the electrical department. He quit that work, and will begin work now in an other department. v Business Better in the East W. W. Coates returned from Kewa nee, Illinois, yesterday morning and in conversation with a reporter said that since he was in the east before which was about a month ago there has been a large number of men given employ ment to what had been working pre viously. The number during the month were increased by someting near two thousand and business in all lines was looking better in accordance. EDUCA at oflpmw. ant, the lost sheep sent in a card to Senator Tillman, who came out of the senate chamber and presented himself to Mr. Gamhle of Plattsmouth, head of the dissenting delegation. "Well?" demanded Mr. Tillman. "We lost our senators," explained Mr. Gamble. "You're lucky. Where you from?" "Nebraska." "Yes; both republican; very luck." "What we want is to see the presi dent's room in the senate wing, and we thought you'd show it to us," explained Mr. Gamble. "Sure I will," replied the pitchfork statesman, and he took the crowd in tow, and getting interested, conducted it all over the senate wing, lectured all the art works, explained the historical apparitions and finally picked out the two daughters of Senator Brown, whom he didn't know as such, as his special proteges. "I am now going to show you some especially interesting things," he ex claimed. "I shall show them to these two young ladies; if the rest of you want to follow along, it will be all right." Whereupon he explained the mys teries of the optical illusions in the frescoes of the senate wing, some of which are among the most remarkable in the world. The crowd was capti vated with him and when he was done Tillman admitted that there were mighty nice people in Nebraska, even if they did go republican pretty often. : DEPARTING FOR NEW MEXICO Almost a Colony of Platts mouth People Will Lo cate or Buy Land There Henry Ofe and Chas Bell departed today for Clayton, New Mexico, where they go to purchase some lands. Should they not find the prices to their liking, they will probably file on some home stead lands. E. M. Godwin and Ivan Taylor think of going also next Tues day, with the intention also of taking up a homestead. Chas. Crabill and Wm. Gingery think of following in the near future, and the reporter of this paper, has a microbe or two of the New Mexico fever in his system, but whether his natural robust health will throw off the effect of it or not is diffi cult to determine. The indications are that he will not make a trip for a few weeks yet. Ed. and John Maurer, who went but a short time since, have es tablished a photograph gallery, and are doing a good business, it is reported. Ed. is a fine workman in that line, and we wish the boys success. A recent letter from Elder Zink says they had a fine rain there this last week, and that the spring work is fairly started, everybody is plowing for the coming summer's crops. The Ditch a Success. The Falter and Coates ditch on the old Miller farm has already proven itself a success. Last week when the snow went off an ice gorge formed on the Vallery farm and held the water back until it caused the largest flood ever known in the Four Mile creek. The water came down four feet deep and a half mile wide. When it struck the new drainage ditch it washed out the dam, leaving the old creek bed and the new ditch both to carry the water, which they done, and not a particle of the flood went over the farm. Mr. Falter says they will not put the dam back for the time being, but leave both ways open for the water to pass. People who saw the flood say that, while the new ditch is not as large as the old creek bed, yet by reason of a greater fall, and being straight, it was abundantly able to take care of three or four times as much water. In the County Court. A continuance was granted in the case of E. M. Compton, deceased, who died January 28th, in the appointment of administrator. J. 0. Hiddlestom and M. J.
