Harrison has a bran new double act

a fine one and with a reasonable amount
of hose will be of greuf benefit in case
fire should break out in the business part

teams from irettimr close enough to
damaire it. A little more i needed and

great convenience. The new pump is a
great improvement and the trustees are
entitled to credit for the good judgment
shown in its selection.

through this place last Monday on his
way tc Wyoming. He was accompa

well used up with hard work and we
hope his trip will give him renewed

Last Monday's mail brought us a let
ter from our old friend, Attorney Gen
eral Leese. Besides the best wishes of
General Leese for our success, the letter
contained a draft for a year's subscrip
tion to The Journal, which is duly ap
preciated by us. Gen. Leese has opened
a law office in Lincoln and takes cases in
which the state is not a party nor in any
way interested. The fact that he has
been three times elected attorney general
of the state is all the endorsement Gen.
Leese needs to secure him a large and
lucrative law practice.

On last Sunday the horse thief, Mc-
Nab, who has been confined here for
some time, manageu to cut a noie
through the floor of his cell large
enough to allow him to get out He
went out in broad daylight and got into
a small yard back of the jail, climlied on
the fence and seeing two men near by he
remained on tlie fence a short time to
avoid suspicion. He proceeded to C. N,
Wadsworth's new house southwest of
town and procured a hatchet and then
made his way to the residence of a man
bV the name of Moore, where he took a
horse that was picketed, and rode south
west. The night was dark and he lost
his way and on Monday morning he left
the horse and started out on foot. He
was seen by Jack Cook, and it did not
take him loner to determine that he had
no business running loose over the
country, and he took him in. McNab
claimed to be a deserter from Fort Mead
and begged to be let off but it was
thought best to hold him. Word was
sent to this place and officers went after
him. Sheriff Pfost and all his deputies
were out in all directions and while the
new party was on the road to Cooks'
they were met by the sheriff who turned
and accompanied them, and on Tuesday
they returned with the prisoner. Sheriff
Pfost was spoken to about tiking him to
Cliadron for safe keeping but he replied
that he proposed to keep him right here,
and lie went to work and had some good
shackles made and riveted on the man's
ankles and then chained him to the wall
of the cell, and there he will stay until
Judge Kinkaid can come ami uispose oi
him. A petition has been Hent to the
judge asking that he come as soon as
possible, and it is prooauie uuu n win
not lie long that the sheriff will have to
Uko care of the fellow. It would be no
more than justice to the officers if a bet
ter pla was provided for keeping pris
oners. The sheriff is held responsible
for the safe keeping of prisoners and the
placefumisll is not saf to keep any
one. ' . 1
