A general round-up of suspicious char
acters would rid the city of most of the
thieves, highway robbers and midnight
marauders. A special force of police
men should be secretly employed fer
the purpose and go quietly to work.
There are too many toughs in Omaha

You bet it would. But it would be
mighty hard scratching to fill the city
offices out of the population that would
be left. We have heard what the result
of purifying h 1 or the democratic par
ty would be. The Bee's "round up"
would just match it.
Mrs. Sheedy was arraigned before
the district court, Judge Field on the
bench, Monday morning last. Mrs.
Sheedy is supported by numerous
friends and has able counsel. The day
was passed in legal fencing, and in the
effort to secure a jury.

Mrs. Sheedy is a handnotne woman
when viewed directly from the front.
The profile view is not so prepossessing.
It is difficult to conceive that so fair a

J. 'C Ilileox.
Ex-(Jovernor Jcssup, one of the most
prominent citizens of Bridgewater,
Conn., has gone insane. He was taken
violently ill a few days ago, but refused
to allow a doctor to come to the house
and lived solely on the faith cure. Jes
sup at length conceived the idea that he
was a second Abraham and that the
Lord required a human sacrifice. Thurs
day being left alone for a few minutes,
ho prepared for the terrible alYair by
constructing an altar in his led room,
around which he piled a heap of com
bustibles. Then he caught his little
grandchild, one year old, and placed
her on the altar, and prepared to ignite
it. The child's cries attracted a mem
ber of the family, and the eld mau was
nearly killed in the struggle to restrain
