I -i i . - - - v THE OMAHA RACES Camber of Union Gets Second In the Ten Mile Race. HOLLOWAY IS KNOCKED OUT. The rUtlmiiouth Ma" Was Utiforlunat Hold Daylight Itubbry at the Itut ler Candy Kucinry- Ne bmk City Sucker. Slurl!iy't Iiicycl Ituce. 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 minutes. A c.mple of doctors ran to his assist ance and with the aid of restoratives 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 shaking up. 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 spectators. 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. Another Kobbery. 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 off." 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. PERSONAL, POLITICAL AND PERTINENT. AN OLD-TIME NOVEL.

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 Times. 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 much." 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. Let us hope their course of study em braces such patriotic gems as that qaint old song, 'The Hand that Hocks the Cradle is the Hand that Rules the World.'" Corn out near Weeping Water must be keeping up the record for Cass A young machinist from New Castle county, as the following from the Wyoming, and a former lady of this Regnlatoi will testify: 'd Stack- city, who is now a widow, were mar bouse was standing at the foot of a ried last Saturday and departed for the cornstalk in bis field of corn west of west on B. & M.

I sent Dick up to see about an hour ago, and I'm wor ried to death about him." How so? asked the reporter. "Can't he get back?" "No: that's the trouble the cornstalk's growing up faster than he can climb down." There is but one passage in the Bible where the girls are commanded to kiss the men and that is in the gol den rule: " Whatsoever that ye would that men should do uuto you do ye even so unto them." J. W. Baker, a farmer who lives on the old J. M. Patterson tract near Rock Bluffs, brought to town Monday the stuffed hide of a timber rattle snake, measuring live feet in length aud six and three-quarter inches in circumfeience. It was ornamented with seventeen rattles. His suake ship may be seen at Ben Ilempel's museum in the court house. Caroline Burmeister of this county has began suit in the district court at Nebraska City to recover $200 on a chattle mortgage given by II. E. Huh mann on July 13, 1895, on the stock and fixtures of the bakery and confec tionary store in the Bartling block, in that city. Why is it the B. & M. 11. 11. does not recommend No-to-bac tor their en gines? Because their engines have to chew-io-back-her. Attorney Sloan wentto PiattMiiouth yesterday and secured a mandamus to compel Supt. Ebright to pay Edward Manley a balance due on salary as hostler and attendant. The money is tied up with other institute matters. Nebraska City News. People size up your business accord ing to the size of the "ad." you run in the papers. If you run no "ad." they take it you have nothing worth adver tising and don't want their trade. 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 read of." 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. PROMPTLY ANSWERED. 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 talking to himself and meant no harm 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 xrv us, your honor, savin your prisince, sor. ' "I 'joined the rest of them in the laugh, and said, ' Well, boys, order up ; that puts Tribune, 'em on me, ' ' ' Cincinnati HE KNEW JERSEY EGGS. It Wine Printer Could Tell by Their Size and Shape. Two printers lunched at a Park roTV restaurant the other day. One ordered 'beef and" and the other two boiled eggs. When the eggs were placed before the ono who ordered them, he said to his companion, "Why, those are Jersey eggs." "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 home consumption." 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 York Journal. A Suspicions Title. In Chicago "The scoundrel addressed a letter to me 'John Smith, B. A.,' " exclaimed the city father wrathfully. What of it?" "What of it? What does 'B. A. ' stand for?" "Bachelor of arts. He thought you wre a college graduate. " "Oh, that's it, is it? I thought it meant 'boodle alderman.'" Chicago Times-Herald.
