"Who is tho pretty girl with blonde
hair and deep blue eyes, there in the
jaunty hat?" asked Alfred, at the
lawn party. "Who?" replied Annie,
"that taffy-haired girl with the tallow
oyes, andthat nightmaro of blue rags
on her head? I never saw her before;
nobody we want to know." That,
brethren, Is the way different people
look at a pretty girl in a pretty hat.
Tho universal interest felt regard

"The railroad company is lound to

reasonable compensation, and must not
discriminate against It. A court of

pliance with this wholesome regulation.
Tho court cannot for a moment
sanction the proposition tlvtt a
railroad company may, by ex
tortion or unjust discrimination, ex
clude an express company from tho
right to conduct its business upon tho
railroad. I am not prepared now to
tlx maximum rates to bo charged for
transportation of express matter, but 1
have no doubt of tho power of tho
court, after investigation, to do so.

Tho Culvert Courier, a six column
quarto, published at the new H. & M.
town, near tho geographical contro of
Nemaha county, was ushered into ex
istence on the 14th ult., by f. Wi Fair
brother, Jr. The Courier has a modest
salutatory, that promises nothing im
possible or unreasonable; i3 Keptiblicuu
politically, but its mission 1b the local
interests of Calvert and its people.
This llrst number is coinmendably free
of egotistic bombast, and if wo may
judge from the long list of personals,
fresh local editorials and largo amount
of advertising, Calvert is certainly hav
ing a "boom," and enlisting the atten
tion and confidence of men of capital
An exchange tolls us how to
lemons, as follows:
A good deal has been said through
tho papers lately about tho healthf ill
ness of lemons. Tho latest advico .'is
to how to uao them, so they will do the
most good, runs as follows; "Most
peopie know tho benetit of lemonado
before breakfast, but few know how it
is more than doubled by taking ono at
night also The way to get tho better
of a bilious systom without bluo pills
or quinoine is to take the juico of one,
two or three lemons, as tho appetite
craves, in as much ice-water as makes
it pleasant to drink, without sugar, be
fore going to bed. In tho morning on
rising, or an hour bofore breakfast,
tako tho juice of one lemon in a goblet
of water. This will clear the system
of humors and bile, with mild efficacy,
without any of tho weakening tenden
cy of calomel or congress water.
People should not irritate tho stomach
by eating tho lemon clear; the power
ful acid of tho juice, which is almost
corrosive infallibly produces inllama
tion after a while, but properly diluted,
so that it does not burn or draw the
throat, it does its full medical work
without any harm, and when the
stomach is clear of food has abundant
opportunity to work on the system
From tho Calvert Courier:

It is now a lixed fact that the Gould
railroad will cross the H. & M. about
three quarters of a milo west of Cal

The farmers of Nemaha county are
busily engaged in preparing their har
vest for the garner. It is thought tin
yield per acre will be fair, yet scarcely
so large as the average year.
Hon. Church Howe has purchased
the south half of Jacob Keedy's farm,
located between Calvert anil Long's
Hraneh. It is evident Mr. Howe be
lieves tho Missouri Pacilic is coming
by that routo.
The Courier isof the opinion that it
is well for a county tu possess a "cali
per" who has the influence necessary to
"cap" the best interests of a county at
tho proper time. Such men belong
to tho needs of a county.
The 11. A M. is no paying four dol
lars per day for teams, and two dollars
for "scraper holders." The contractors
mean business and are pushing tilings
at a lively rate. A few days at most
and tho shriek of the engine will be
heard approaching Calvert.
Calvert is situated on sections 27 and
2.S. town ft, range 14, in the centre of
one of the richest and most fertile
counties in the State. It is about twelve
miles from any place of importance,
and at the crossing of tho Ilopublican
Aralley and Missouri Pacilic railways.
IlarvoMcGee, of tho firm of McGce
iV Moore. Urownville, gave us a friendly
call Friday last. Mr. McGee informs
us that they will occupy one of the
rooms now being built by Mr. Salsburv,
within tho next six weeks. Thov are
ono of tho most solid and enterprising
firms of Urownville, and wo are grati
fied to know that they will extend their
growing business to Calvert.
Tho railroad grado between Calvert
and Nemaha City is being pushed to
rapid completion, almost tho entire
force of workmen having concentrated
at tho east end of the lino, where thov
are fast reducing tho road to its proper
level. Within fortv dnvs. it is safo tn
nay. the track will be laid to this point
ami mo cars making regular trips with
supplies for tho workmen further west.
Johnson, the next station west on
tho new railroad, is beginning to boom,
Claggett & Son having already com
menced the erection of a commodious
storeroom, and others, wo understand,
will soon follow. The town is located
on high rolling prairie, on tho divide
between the Nemaha river and the

of the surroundiiiL' countrv is trulv

a thriving town will soon be built.
A gang of thirteen robbcrs.about 0 :30
p. m. on the evening of the lftth inst.,
took possession of the passenger and

at Winston, Iowa. Jesso James is sup

two of them wore masks. Their first
act upon entering front and rear of tho

who fell dead on the car platform. A
stone mason named John McClellcn
being mistaken for the engineer, was
next shot dead. Tho express messen

and compelled to deliver tho keys to the

the fact that the
