The University Park bicycle races at
Omaha last Saturday proved a big
event, and were witnessed by a large
crowd of people. Tom Patterson and
Harvey Holloway of this city had their
chances of winning any of the prizes
ruined early in the races, on account
of an unfortunate accident, in which
Holloway was quite badly injured. The
accident occurred in the one mile open
race. There were six starters in this
race and it was a very close and excit
ing one until Patterson of this city, in
an attempt to spurt, lost his right pedal
immediately after passing the graud
stand and fell to the right of the track,
aud Holloway, who was followingclose
behind, fell over him, running his ma
chine right over Patterson and, turn
ing a complete somersault, was
thrown heavily against the board
fence. Patterson was scarcely hurt
and got up, but Holloway never moved
and remained unconscious for several
A c.mple of doctors ran to his assist

revived him and he was escorted to
the dressing room, where it was found
thit he was badly cut and bruised all
over and that he had received a serious
This accident upset the previous ar
rangement, to make the distance in
2:3d, and Fredrickson seemed it in
2:45 2-5, and was followed by Gadke
and Burdick respectively.
When the accident occurred Stuart
Livingston of this city, who was in the
grand stand, jumped down and ran
over to where Holloway lay. Sandy
Griswold, the referee, grabbed Stuart
and told him to staud back. Stuart
said he was a friend or Holloway'
and was from Plattsmouth,butit didn't
appear to make any difference with
the "great" Sandy. At that moment a
Cv)up!e of btneers noticed the disturb
ance and one of them cracked the offi
cious -andy nver the head with his
club. This part of the program was
greatly appreciated by a number of the
After the accident to Holloway there
w as a rumor in the grand stand that he
was dead and in the excitement sev- j
eral people fainted. When he rose tohis i
feet ke was cheeied by the spectators. 3
The ten mile race was one of the best
ever run in Omaha, and Cairiher of
Union, who went up with the Piatts-1
mouth riders', came under the wire
only a few feet behind the great Fred-
rickson. The latter rider discovered J
early in the game that be had no snap
with the Cass county boy, and he had
to strain every nerve to beat him.
Holloway would probably have won
this race had he been able to enter
but the accident made that impossible.
Yesterday's World Herald says: "Mr.
Holloway of Plattsmcuth says that he
intends to give up racing. He is dep
uty sheriff of Cass county and will be
a candidate for sheriff this fall."
Mr. Holloway was Been this after
noon and says that the World-Herald's
report that he is going to quit racing
is not correct. Happy is not the kind
of a man lo let a few bruises bluff him
out, and he will continue racing just
as long as it affords him pleasure.
PJattsmouth has made an enviable
record lor robberies and burglaries
during the past few days. Saturday
afternoon at about half past two
o'clock O. T. Butler, proprietor of the
candy factory and ice cream parlors,
had occasion to be down stairs for a
few minutes, looking after so,me
candy, and his assistant was upstairs
on another errand. While the store
was thus temporarily deserted, some
sneak thief entered the room and went
back of the counter and deliberately
helped himself to the cash in the
money drawer, leaving some twenty
seven cents in pennies. Mr. Butler
does not exactly know the amount of
money stolen, but thinks it was about
three dollars and a half.
Thi3 was one of the boldest rob
beries that has ever occurred in the
city, as anyone passing on the street
could easily have noticed the theft,
and the streets were full of people on
that day, too.
Worked" the Nebraska Cityites.
A traveling horse show "worked" a
Nebraska City liveryman theotherday
iu great shape. The tourists had an
old gray horse in their outfit that ap
peared to be along on his pilgrimage to
the bone-yard. Horsemen who exam
ined it found that it was iiot less than
seventeen years old and it was covered
all over with brands, usually a pretty
sure indication that it was a plug from
Plugville. The liveryman owns a
"fast" mare, which be calls Alice K.,
and, after a little persuasion, a race
was arranged for between the "plug"
and Alice It. for $50. The race came
off last Friday and, in the language of
the Xebrastca City Press, "if Alice It.
had been fastened with a fifty-foot
rope to the shack of bones that skim
med along ahead or her, it is believed
that she would either have been choked
to death or had her neck broken square
Several of the sports in the town
down the river were very neatly
cleaned up by the combination, as they
bet their last red on Alice ti.

Now that a good crop of small grain
has been secured to the farmers of
Cass county, and the corn crop is
almost assured there is hardly a good
reason why they cannot pay their ac
counts with the printer. There are
several hundred farmers in Cass county
who are in arrears for the Weekly
and they could, one and all, very easily
help us out of a hole, and a little help
from each one would work wonders.
Attempted enforcement of the "blue
laws" has broken out seriously near
the town of Eagle, this county. Wm.
Ewerth has tiled complaint iu a justice
court, charging his neighbor, Henry
Kettlehut. with having violated the
law and sanctity of the Sabbath by
riding bis binder in the field last Sun
day. Williun Snyder returned last Satur
day from a visit to his old stamping
grounds in Cass county. For many
years Mr. Snyder was an active leader
of the democracy in western Cass, and
he still takes a lively interest in poli
tics across the river. He reports that
although the old party has been badly
crippled by false leaders who have
tried to deliver its votes to the i ail
road republican candidates, .a strong
effort will be made this fall to place in
nomination such a ticket as will invite
the support of the better element in
all parties, and thus redeem the county
from the rule of the ring which now
controls it. Old Cass is of right a
democratic county, and we sincerely
hope Mr. Snyder's predictions may be
verified iu November. Papillion
One year ago Friday was the most
sorrowful one in the state's history.
The hot winds of July 26, which were
preceded by a drowth lasting sixty
days, destroyed every vestige of hope
for any kind of crops whatever. Thous
ands of poor families were compelled
to face winter without a mouthful of
food in their homes. Today, how
changed! Truly, we ought to be thank
ful. Something new, even in the matter
of "standing off" the preacher, was
discovered in Kansas. When the new
dominie called on FarmerTom Wilson,
of Keck Creek, Jefferson county, a
week or so since for a donation toward
his salary, Mr. Wilson said be had no
money, but said be would give two
rows of potatoes, each twenty rods
long. "If the Lord wants you to get
$20 from me," said the farmer, "he
will water the potatoes well, and I
will be mighty glad to have you get it;
if he doesn't I'm afraid you'll not get
This charm never fails. If a girl
will whirl around on her left heel three
times without stopping and then take
off her shoe, she -will find in the heel
a hair the color of the young man she
will marry. If there is no hair in the
shoe, the charm does not fail; she is to
marry a bald headed man.
It seems that girls are preparing to
become public speakers. A Boston
letter says: "Twenty-five youngladies
have just been graduated from the
Boston school of oratory. They have
been drilled to speak well and often,
and the best productions of the great
est poets have been improved when
set to the music of their sweet voices.

Mi Had Nerve.
The Lincoln News quotes Detective
Langdon as saying: "You talk about
nerve, the nerviest woman I ever saw
was Mrs. Shellenbei ger, the Nebraska
City woman accused of the murder of
her little step daughter. After her
trial in this city I took her back to the
jail to await a verdict of the jury.
During the suspense she sat in the jail
sewing upon some garment for one of
Sheriff Melick's little sons. It was
fine goods and she was using a del
icate needle. She had just emptied
the needle when I received a telephone
message that the jury had come in and
that I should bring her in to hear the
verdict. I spoke to her and told her
what was wanted, and was startled at
her reply. What do think she said?
She simply quietly remarked, 'Wait
until 1 thread this needle and I will
be ready.' Without a quiver of her
muscles she threaded her needle and
then quietly laid aside her sewing and
accompanied me to the court room to
learn whether she lived or died. The
verdict was an acquittal. It was the
nerviest thing i have ever heard or
Bloomers In CJreeunood.
The editor of the Louisville Courier
tells of the popularity of bloomers in
Greenwood in the following:
"While out at Greenwood the other
day the writer saw new evidence why
the bloomers should become popular.
We were strolling along Main street
viewing the one time prosperous little
city where our childhood days were
spent, when down the street came two
beautiful young country girls on horse
back, riding clothes-pin fashion. They
easily managed the charging steeds on
which they were perched, and' of
course the bloomers made it possible.
And why not? If bloomers are to be
worn, surely they look as graceful on
either side of a horse as when clawing
the air astride a bicycle. Louisville
girls doubtless have not thought of
this new use for the "trilby pants"
and this item is given that they may
get in line and keep up with the times."
Were Considerably Frightened. .
The family of Judge Sullivan re
ceived quite a scare last Saturday
afternoon. That morning the family
horse was hitched to the buggy and
the three younger children drove down
to the farm of their grandmother, Mrs.
Nelson Jean, to spend the day. In
the afternoon when they were prepar-
J ing to return, and the horse's collar
j and part of the harness had been put
( on, the animal became frightened and
I dashed away. The horse came borne
with part of the harness dangling on
his body, and, of course, it caused
quite a commotion in the Sullivan
family. A searching party was im
mediately organized and sent out to
look for the children. They were soon
found, coming home in the Jeans car-
! riage, and the relief of the family can
be easily imagined when they learned
1 that the children were safe.
General Ryan's Conundrum Didn't Bother
the Irishman For a Moment.
One of General Ryan's peculiarities
is that he never telLs the same story to
the same man a second time. Not long
ago he was talking about his travels in
the United Kingdom. "I had always
thought," said he, "that the famous
Irish wit and repartee were only to "be
found on tho stage or in Lever's novels,
but I came away from Ireland with a
yery different idea.
"I was stopping at a little country
inn, and a game of cards was "in prog
ress. I was invited to take a hand, and
as an Americanized Irishman I thought
I ought to keep up the reputation of tho
country for sociability. I asked what
they were playing, and they replied
'Forty-five, ' an old time Irish game. I
told them that I barely knew the rules,
but that I could play seven up, euchre
or nearly any other American card game.
But they insisted on my taking a hand,
and I did bo. One of the pages, who was
standing at the back of my chair,
watched my hand pretty closely, and
the first time I made a bad play he said,
sotto voce: 'Holy Maxes, I niver see
6ucli a play iu me loife. I wonder
phwere the divil the mon cum from.
I paid no attention to liim, of course,
and went on with the game. The next
time I made a bad play, and it wasn't
very long, ho again said, talking to him
self, 'Bcdad, niver did I see a mon play
the loikes of that. ' I began to be an
noyed, but still I said nothing, altlfough
a man never likes to hear it said that
he plays a game badly, but the man wai

However, when he broke out the third
time I could contain myself no longer.
I turned around and said, "Look here,
my friend, are you playing these cards,
or am I?' The Irishman looked at me
for a moment, and then said, 'Nayther

"I 'joined the rest of them in the
laugh, and said, ' Well, boys, order up ;

HE KNEW JERSEY EGGS.

restaurant the other day. One ordered

eggs. When the eggs were placed before

companion, "Why, those are Jersey
"How do you know they are Jersey
eggs? They might have been laid in
Pennsylvania or Kentucky for all you
know. ' '
"Well, I guess not. Those eggs came
from Jersey, and I know it. "
To prove it the proprietor was called
into the discussion, and when asked he
said the eggs were Jersey eggs.
Then the egg eater explained: "Over
in Jersey the farmers, or some of them
at least, use a board with holes, large
and small, bored in it. All eggs that
will go through the small holes are sent
to market, and those which will only go
through the large holes are reserved for
Another printer devised a scheme for
procuring good butter at his boarding
house table. The landlady had two ta
bles for her guests ranged one each side
of a large room. At one the women
boarders and married couples sat, while
at the other table the bachelors were
placed. At the women's table there was
always good butter, but at the other the
butter was emphatically inferior. A
printer boarder suffered long and pa
tiently, but at last he rebelled. He went
to the dining room just before dinner
one evening and changed the butter
from one table to the other. A howl
from the women's table shortly after
had the desired effect
The butter was of equally good qual
ity at both tables thereafter. New
