From Frilav ral?'.
Herman J. Hough, the gentlemanly
mail carrier on loute No. 1 out of this
city, has deserted the ranks of the
single and decided that he would take
a helpmate to assist him in making
life's journey. He was married Sun
day afternoon at Nebraska City to
Miss Lucille Pheobe Selby, a very
charming young lady of the Otoe
county metropolis. The wedding was
v very quiet one and occurred at the
home of the bride's parents, being
performed by Rev." Zimmerman of the
Baptist church of that city. The only
attendants were the members of the
family. After the ceremony the
young people returned home to Platts
mouth and hav started housekeeping
in the residence in the south part of
the city prepared by the groom. Both
the bride and groom were former
residents of Weeping Water and their
acquaintance there was continued un
til merged into the happy marriage.
Mr. Hough has made his home here
for the past year, looking after the

Schanz was coming around the house
and was passing a tub of water at

and fell with much force, striking her

physician was immediately called and
it was found that some of the ribs on
that side had been split. While suf
fering much pain, both from the shock
of the fall and the bruises, Mrs.
Schanz's condition is very satisfactory
and she is feeling as comfortable as
possible under the circumstances.

Medical authorities agree that colds
are infectious. In some cities children
with colds are barred from schools.
Spring's changing weather brings
many colds. The quickest and safe
way to stop colds, coughs and croup
is to give Foley's Honey and Tar
Compound. Sol everywhere.
The Journal office has some paper
cups of various sizes, just the thing

her home on South Sixth street the
Euterpean Glee club for a number of
the former members of the club who
are here visiting, as well as for the
newly elected members of this splen

sington and was an event enjoyed to
the utmost by the ladies in their sew
ing, as well as a renewal of old ac
quaintances and associations when all
were active in the work of the club,
as well as in the general good time
afforded them by the hostess. At a
suitable hour very dainty and tempt

added greatly to the pleasures of the

"Congressman" Thomas, our tailor
of the colored presuasion, had a little
matinee last Tuesday. He came home
from Ashland a little high, and pitch
ed into his wife. A crowd gathered,
and the language used was not nice
Sheriff livers very properly put an
end to the indecent exhibition by tak
ing the beligerent off to the cooler.
Doc. Jones, the livery man, tells
us he was out to see Andy Taylor's
new barn, which is now about com
pleted, and he is very much pleased
with it indeed, pronouncing it one of
the best farm barns for general and
all purposes he has yet seen in the
Ed O'Neil, brother of Squire 6'Neil,

Mr. Weckbach's new houses, south of

our most enterprising business men,
who is doing a good deal for the town
just now in the way of new buildings.
A young man by the name of Luth
er, wno was supposed to oe sleep
ing in a box-car, was instantly killed
on Monday evening by falling under
the freight train. He was trying to
get a ride to Lincoln, when, falling
asleep in the car the sudden starting
frightened him and he somehow fell
out and was killed. He was buried
here Tuesday morning.
The city has repaired a few of the
worst places about town, although
there are plenty left yet to operate
upon. The bridge by Dr. Schild-
necht's is in crossable condition
again, and the sidewalk on the west
side of Fitzgerald's block no longer
rips unwary pedestrians, and affords
tetering place for small children.
but wagon makers and repairers need
not fear that their occupation will be
gone yet awhile, as anyone can testify
who bumps across a score or so of
crossings, and through as many chuck
holes in a fifteen-minute ride around
under the auspices of the "Nebraska
State Holiness association." It com
menced last Wednesday and closed
yesterday, and has been very success
ful. On Sunday the Rev. Dr. Fisher
preached at 11 o'clock a. m., Brother
Henderson of Lincoln in the after
noon, and Brother Davis, elder at Ne
braska City, in the evening. Besides
this the day was fully occupied. There
were services at 5 o'clock a. m. and at
8 and 10 a. m. Children's meeting at
1:30. Services at 3 p. m. and at
p. m., young people's meeting, very
interesting, conducted by Prof. Mc

We met during our short visit the
Rev. Mr. Blackburn, of this place, and
many brethren of the M. E. church.
We had a very pleasant Dejeuner,
literally, (a little dinner) with Mrs.
Spurlock, and came home impressed
with the idea that our Methodist
frieiitls are able to reach a class and
make at home an element in our pop
ulation that no other religious de
nomination has yet reached, so fully
and so happily.

profitable and delightful afternoon.
The ladies held a very interesting
business session, after which the few
remaining hours were whiled away in
a social time. Just prior to the close

hostesses served a splendid luncheon.

cough she coughed so hard at one time
that she had hemorrhage of the lungs.
I was terribly alarmed about her con

at once. Before she had finished two
