Another Case of Small Fox Reported
From Near Bethlehem.
HAS NOT YET REACHED THE CITY
Ann Luce Will be Kclormed The Funeral
of Will Long -The A. O. II. Ma
tional Convention in Omaha
Other New Note.
Another Case Reported.
Another case of small-pox is reported
tbe victim being a Mrs. Backus,
who lives a mile north and a mile east
of the H. & M. bridge on tbe Iowa
bottoms, near the Junction. It is re
ported tbat Mrs. .back us assisted in
laying out for burial the body of the
Sherman child, which died last week.
so if the reports are authentic the
origin of her case can be traced di
rectly to cases in the Sherman family
at the Junction.
It was reported Sunday that a case
supposed to be small-pox had been dis
covered in the second ward, but when
Dr. Hall and Marshal Grace visited
the house it was found that there was
no grounds for the supposition, as it
was not a case of small-pox at all. The
local authorities report that in case we
receive a visit of tbe dread disease
here the pest-house will be ready to re
ceive patients within twenty-four
Ann Luce to be Reformed.
Ann Luce, of unsavory repute, who
has been making life a burden for the
police for several years past by baffling
all their efforts to rid the town of her
presence, will be given a chance to re
form. She was arraigned in police
court Tuesday morning to answer to a
charge of conducting a bouse of pros
titution, and the judge decided to bind
her over to the district court for trial
at the September term, and compel her
to give bond for her appearance or
have her kept in confinement at the
county poor house.
Rev. Hull, the evangelist who has
been holding meetings in the Palmer
block, interested himself in her case
and asked. tbat she be sent to an in
stitution for fallen women in Omaha.
Ann consented to become an inmate
of the institution, and will be given a
chance to reform her evil ways.
Will Long's Funeral.
The funeral of Will Long, the young
man who was found lying dead in the
stable at his father's farm near My
nard on Friday evening, was held Sun
day and was largely attended. Tbe
remains of the unfortunate young man
were interred at the Eikenbary ceme
tery, south of town.
The coroner did not hold an inquest,
as it was thought to be unnecessary,
the relatives of the deceased being
satisfied that death was caused by an
over-indulgence in alcoholic liquors
and tbat it was not a case of suicide.
A. O. H. International Convention.
The annual international convention
of the Ancient Order of Hibernions
commenced at Omaha Tuesday and
continues for four days. Delegates
from all over the United States, as
well as Canada and Ireland, will be in
attendance, and altogether the affair
promises to attract a crowd of several
thousand to the metropolis of Ne
braska. Jas. Grace represents Cass
county at the convention.

WEEPING WATER NOTES,
From the Eagle.
Fox of Plattsmouth had been out
fishing and meeting with wonderful
success, lie sent an account of the
same to Grover, relating his methods
of getting suckers to bite. The story
had a wonderful effect on our national
fisherman; that Fox wants the post
office at Plattsmouth, and he shall
have it. He's a genius with a rod and
a man that is not afraid to go fishing
on Memorial day. Here's the post
office, Kelly, and good luck to yon.
The Courier-Journal ot Louisville
says that the county commissioners
cannot see a hole in the Platte river
bridge tbat is big enough for a man to
fall through. The fact of the business
is just this: The bridge was built by
Louisville precinct at theirown option.
Now they ask the county to take
charge of it and keep it in repair.
This they might consent to do if they
could be released from having to re
build it when it is worn out. Judge
Chapman says they must repair it; the
county servants say they will not, and
Sam will have to take a tumble.
Warden Beemer says that J. Benwell

and blood poisoning set in. On Sun
day it was necessary to amputate the
finger above the second joint, and as
yet there is no indication of it healing.
If Hill could be hitched to the end of
a rope for awhile, the world would be
rid of a pair of assassins tbat long ago
should have ornamented a hangman's
rope. Now that Matt Gering has got
a job, it is hoped that justice will not
be delayed much longer.
The Council khould Take Warning.
ice i lattsmouth city council can
not refuse the two applications for
saloon licenses now on file on any
ground other than sheer bull-headed-
ness. The applicants have the money
to pay for their licenses, and if they
are willing to make the investment
when the business promises such poor
returns, the council should certainly
be willing to grant the licenses. The
laws provide for the revoking of
licenses, and if at any time the appli
cants violate the laws and lay them
selves liable to such action, the council
can not then be blamed if the licenses
are revoked. The city treasury needs
money too badly to admit of any bull
headed action on 1 1 part of the coun
cil, and thf latter b--lv will do well to
take cognizance of that fact.
