"If Christ came to Denver" would
le have received as much attention
as did Francis Schlatter, the healer.
One man who has gone to Denver to
be healed and found that the "Mes
siah" had decamped telegraphed back
to his wife: "Christ has taken to the
wouds. Will be home soon."
Farmers and stock feeders of Ne
braska are taking advantage of the
low price of grain and will feed the
greater portion of it to their stock.
Reports from many counties indicate
that every farmer who can possibly
afford to do so will hold his grain for
higher prices. There is an especially
large number of sheep being fed along
the line of the Union Pacific. There
are 75.000 head of sheep at Sbelton,
and fully 200,000 between Schuyler
ana Wood River, on the Union Pacific
lines. Other roads in the state make
equally good reports. Most of the
sheep have been shipped from Mexico
and Colorado, and will be ready for
the market during the winter months
Cattle are being brought into the
state in large numbers from the south.
The J?lattsmouth papers are devoting
a great deal of space to telling how
Sandy Gnswold is to escape from the
meshes of the law for being one of the
referees in the prize fight wherein
young Robbins of that city was killed.
They charge all kinds of rottenness in
the legal machinery, and if one was to
believe all they publish he would con
clude that a little whitewash and some
disbarments were badly needed in the
courts there. Nebraska City News.
An eastern paper publishes the state
ment that 17,000 people will leave
Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska
for a colony in Georgia in the next few
months and that traveling passenger
agents are in the field hustling for
them. It is declared in Omaha that
the people who will leave Nebraska
are comparatively few and that in
stead of going away, those who did
leave are coming back again, heartily
sick of the south and glad to be back
Western railroads will, January 1,
issue a 2,000 mile descriptive mileage
book, which means that the descrip
tion of the buyer will be punched in it.
This is done to head off the broker,
but the brokers say it will fail to head
them off. These 2,000-mile books will
sell for $40, or at the rate of 2 cents a
mile. There will also be issued a
1,000-mile book for $25, or at the rate
of 2i cents per mile. This will not
have a punched description. The
reason is that it is generally used up
by the purchaser.
.Judge Chapman feels very sore over
his recent defeat, and last evening
calling some of the republicans into a
certain office in ihis city, roastea
them to a turn. One republican who
bad worked and voted for him was
among those who were abused and he
said to a News man this morning: "I
only regret that I did not know last
month what I do now, and I would
have given cause for the kick." Now
that the battle is over it would be just
as well for the judge to cover up his
sore spots and put on a brave face
while whistling and stop his crying
over spilt milk. Nebraska City News.
A Kansas woman gave her husband
a severe thrashing lor not paying his
subscription to the local paper when
she had furnished him the money to

As the story goes, a stock commis
sion man received a couple of head of
cattle in a car of hogs a few days since
at the stock yards and the government
inspector pronounced them suffering
from lumpy jaw. Despite that fact
the commission man sold them to a
butcher of this city, but the butcher
learned that the stock inspector had
notified the major, and he in turn bad
notified the board of health, who were
in quest of the butcher, who, to avoid
any trouble, turned the diseased stock
back to the commission man, who, it is
said, still has them on hand. Here is
a case, at least, where the suffering
public was protected by the inspection
of meat. Nebraska City News.
Eugene Debs, the A. R. U. leader,
was released fiom jail last Friday at
Chicago and was met at the jail by a

Schlatter stood bareheaded in the
chill air of Denver for two months
laboring many hours daily with the
stricken people. He shrunk from no
ordeal in the healing line, but when
Joe Connor of Omaha showed up with
a petition asking him to come to that
city he fled into the wilderness leaving
no clue by which the persistent Joseph
could follow him. Lincoln News.
Beer kegs are being used with great
success for the odd purpose of catch
ing bears in the vicinity of Hoquaim,
Wash., and are said to make the best
bear traps ever used in that region.
One end is knocked out of the keg and
then a number of strong, sharp skikes
are driven into its sides, the points
slanting slightly toward the closed
end. A big dab of honey or other de
licacy especially liked by a bear is then
placed at the further end, and the keg
is carelesslv droDDed in the woods
where the bears are likely to stumble
across it. The device caught five
bears in one week for one keg planter
recently. The bear just pushes right
into the keg after the honey in the
end and the spikes effectually prevent
htm from backing out, and all he can
do is roll around until he is tired and
then wait for the trap layer to come

A Lincoln man who paid eight dol
lars for two places in Schlatter's line
is now looking for some good husky
man who will chastise him until he is
reasonably sure of never forgetting
his long and expensive journey to the
Denver healer. "Did he help me any?
Not a bit. Two tickets to Denver,
sleeping car fare, meals on the road,
hotel bill in Denver, hack at three
dollars an hour,two tickets in the line,
four dollars each do you wonder that
I feel like a fool?" Lincoln Journal.
The World-Herald this morning,
under the heading, "Boiled Down,"

Every day from three to two dozen
people arrive in town from out in the
county by way of the Missouri Pacific
noon train, coming on business, and
they not only patronize Plattsmouth's
business houses, but stop at the hotels
or restaurants while in town. That
train is a great accommodation to the
county, as well as the town.

Low-lying clouds along the distant west.
Like smoke that rises from some field of pain,
And moaning sounds, likevoicesof the slain,
While yet the spirit lingers in the breast,
Bare, swaying branches, a discarded nest,
A field denuded of its golden grain,
A fallen leaf, all crimson with the stain
Of Summer's blood, who lieth here at rest.
At rest, at rest; there is no other word
That brings such peace and comfort to the
The roaring winds and tempests all unheard ;
Unknown, unf elt, the Frost King's bitter dart.
And If a week, a month, a day, a year,
One knoweth not; nor careth, lying here.
A Worthy Organization.
Recently there appeared in the col
umns of the daily papers a communica
tion from Prof. McClelland, in which
he extended an invitation to the
parents and patrons of the schools to
join in a "round table," for the studj
of Scicology, or the mental training of
children. Last Tuesday there was an
organization effected with over twenty
persons present. Prof. McClelland
was duly chosen leader, priveleged to
select his own assistant and secretary,
the organization to be known as
"Plattsmouth Hound Table" for child
study. Admission to its circles free.
Meetings to be held monthly. Fathers,
mothers, physicians and teachers,
earnestly solicited to attend. Watch
for further announcement.
Kh( Will lie Advanced..
Rates on coal between Chicago and
the Missouri river will be advanced
December 5 to $3, which is only 20
cents lower than before the cut, three
months ago. It was believed that the
rates would never go back within 60
cents of the old rate, for several of the
roads were opposed to the advance,
but apparently all opposition has been
overcome. During the war on coal
rates the freight rates per ton dropped
down to $1. This was, a short time
ago, raised to $2, the present rate.
The advance in the rate east will have
the effect of advancing rates on coal
west of the Missouri river. World

To the afflicted:
Several years ago I discovered a
slight falling and bleedingof the lower
bowel which increased and became
very distressing. I made inquiry as
tothe nature of the disease and learned
that I had a somewhat aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Piles. Was told of
several remedies and used them as di
rected, obtaining thereby some tem
porary relief. Not being satisfied with
such slight relief I cast about for a per
manent cure; when a friend directed
the use of the famous Magnet Pile
Killer. I used it. Immediate relief
