Mrs. AuiLrose L'atterson and Miss
Uoltbins came very n?ar losing their
lives ou tlie 1$. & M. track on Friday,
up by the old brewery. They were out
with a horse and buergy and drove
down the ravine past Harry How
land's place, on the road to the water
works pump house, and just as the
c.'itne to the track an extra train came
bearing down on them. Mrs. Tatter
son sprang out iu time to catch the
horse and turn his head sidewise of the
track, but this was done so quickly that
Miss Itobbins lost her balance and was
thrown out upon the track. Fortu
nately the train was a short one and
the engineer was able to stop it a few
feet from the prone girl. Ten feet
more and the pilot would have struck
her. The horse was so frightened at
the noise of the engine that it broke
away from Mrs. l'atterson and ran
w ith the buggy down the track toward
town. When near the upper switch
house Omireis Dunn and Fitzpatrick
caught it and saved a further mishap.

Congressman Bryan commanded the
closest attention of a large audience
at Frankfort. Kentucky, Saturday
night in arguing for bimetallism.
He said monometalits discuss
the difficulty in maintaining the
parity between the two metals, while
bimetallists are more anxious to main
tain the parity between the dollar and
all other property. He quoted from
Sherman, Blaine and Carlisle, showing
that the destruction of silveras money
and the adoption of the universal gold
standard would increase the purchas
ing power of the dollar and bring great
embarassment to society in general
while it would greatly benefit capital
ists. He asserted that the masses
favor bimetallism. The capitalists
favor a gold standard as the most
profitable to owners of money andj
credit. He showed that a change in
the ratio secured by increasing the
size of the silver dollar would lessen
the volume of money and make money
dearer. He quoted Willim C. Corn
well, president of the New York State
Bankers' Association, as saying that
the international bimetallism is a de
lusion and a fraud, and he insisted
that the United States should at once
secure the free and unlimited coinage
of silver at 16 to 1, because it was pos
sible for the United States to do so,
and because there was no probability
of international aid.
A Word From Uarsliiuaii .
Editou Journal, Plattsmouth,
Neb: I saw an article in your paper
about the wrestling match between
George Harshman of Avoca and John
Gosney of Benkleman, which occurred
at Talmage, and stated that Gosney
defeated Harshman. The way that
was done was through Referee Biggs'
ignorance in the fifth bout. Gosney
was thrown twice thit upon the floor
and the second time he was held there
and I called to the referee to come and
see if it was not a fair fall. The
referee told us to get up, and then de
cided it a foul. I refused to wrestle
any more while Biggs refereed, as his
decisions were the same all through
the match, and it was too hard wTork
to make Gosney say "enough' for the
small sum of $50. It was no smart
trick of them it was a dirty, low
down, low-lived trick, and they be
trayed im in confidence. They stole
$50 of my money and gave it to Gos
ney. Geo. Harshman, Jr.

I sent a vessel far, far out to sea,
Its cargo was of hopes, as gay and bright
As butterflies In summer, and as light
As silver notes of merry, childish glee,
I bade It bring fruition back to me,
And watched it till it wavered out of Bight
Against the far-off border in its flight,
Unto the country of its destiny.
The day wears on and it has not returned,
But ships I wist not of have drifted in
Laden with treasures that I would have spurned
When youth was with me and unrest, its twin
But dearer, dearer by a thousand fold
Than that dream vessel I loved of old.
