A. W. Niekell, the live druggist and

just made arrangements by which ho

the reading spirit of our people.
An odd looking ami acting char
acter appeared on our streets last Fri
day morning. Some of our skilTmen
set him over tho river from the Mis
souri side. He was ragged, dirty, bare
of hind and foot, hair and whiskers
brown, and looked as if tncy bad not
been combed for weeks, or months;
of large, strong build; about forty years
old; had an old coat thrown over his
le'ft shoulder, and carried a bundle of
old clothes under his left arm. He
walked in the middle of the street,
looked neither to the right or left, as
he came- up from the river and proceed
ed westward. When ho had got three
or four blocks up Main street Sheriff
Kleekner thinking it his duty, as it un
doubtedly was, to investigate so strange
a creature, started after him, followed
by a crowd of boys and mon. He went
quietly back with the officer, who put
him into the corridor of the jail until a
legal examination into his case could
bo had. When it was found that he
was of some foreign country, an in
terpreter was sought, and Chris.
Houghbold, who talks several lan
guages, attempted to interview him,
but tho language of this man was too
much for oven Chris. Ho found out
however, that ho was probably a nativo
of Slavonia, a province of Austro-Tluii-gary,
or of some province where the
dialect is a confusion of German and
Slavic. He was also understood to say
that he had been in America about
Hoven years. It was the general be
lief from his tirst appearance that he
was crazy, which was confirmed after
ward by the decisi m of the board of
insanity. He was questioned closely
as to where he had worked and whero
ho had lived in tho I'nited States, but
he could not or would not give any sat
isfaction in that respect. When ques
tioned as to his muiifl he spoke a word
that sounded like Frosh. It is proba
ble that ho is an incurable lunatic that
has escaped or been turned loose from
somo asylum. His hands are soft,
showing no signs of recent hard work.
"What will this county do with him?
We will add in tins connection that
Sheriff Kleekner acted right and with
in tho bounds of his duty in arresting
this strange human being. IIo was not
a fit creature- to run at large, at liberty
. to thrust his scarey and dirty presence
into any houso that his crazy impulse
would suggest. Ho seems to bo harm
less; so Clark seemed just before he
committed a double murder. There
aro laws with humane provisions for
such unfortunates; let such betaken
caro of, accordingly, always promptly.

If tho modo of punishment tells
tho degree of civilization of nations,
where will tho deliberate hanging of
men place a people? Of all tho scones
enacted in the tragedy of human life,
tho most terrible is the execution of a
human being on tho gallows, and the
brutalizing and devilizing influence
which goes out from such scenes will
deepen the desire for crime and darken
the mild passions, and strengthen the
desire for the pistol and the rope. It
irresistably urges men on to crime.

Tho causo of tho President's relapse
on the 2:5d, was the formation of a
largo abscess, half as large as a man's
head, filled with pus. Or. Agnew lo
cated the abscess near tho spine and
mado ;n incision about an inch and a
half deep, from which the pus was all
expelled, permitting a thorough clean
sing of tho wound. Somo small pieces
of bone from a rib that tho ball struck
have been extracted with tho pus.
Sinco tho relapse the President has
been much weaker than boforo, and
not so well, apparently, but sinco tho
operation by Or. Agnew, there is no
doubt ho has not yet been in a better
condition for permanent recovery.
Our latest news before going to press
is that ho is improving and no further
difficulty with the wound is feared.

A sensation, inexpressible, was
created at and about- tho two centers
of this countv last week when the
news was received that Sheridan was
to have tho M. P. depot, and that Cal
vert was not to have any M. P. depot.
Tho Calvert fellows expressed their
sentiments with a "big big O," while
at Sheridan they were stricken sense
less with pure delight; and even Judge
Morgan, when ho heard from "authori
ty" that Sheridan's proposition was ac
cepted, jumped up and' cracked his
heels together twice in mid air without
the use of his cane. It is a fact, we
guess, Sheridan is to have tho M. P.
depot, and the citizens there i-avo a
reason to rejoice, for tiiat gives them
at least an equal chance for life and
prosperity with. their rival, Calvert,
which will have a H. & M. depot. It
is now understood that tho M. P. will
follow tho Nemaha bottom about three
miles below SI eridan when it will
cross tho 11. & M. track about two
miles southeast of Calvert, at the
farms of derluw and Ford. And there
is some talk, witli probably not much
probability, of laying oil' a town at the
junction; witli the view of "setting
down" on both Sheridan ami Calvert.
Hut there are any quantity of railroad
rumors now atloat, everybody lias an
opinion, and nobody knows anything.

four miles south Sierravill. Nov., one
day last week, a single robber stepped
out ami ordered a halt. Kossoau and
the passengers dismounted and form

the team was hitched at one side of the
road. With his double-barrelled gun
the robber kept ids captives alive for
an hour, when the Sierra Valley jjtago

Those who sing or lovo that old song, .
"Kathleen Mavourneen," will ho in
terested, and at the same time surpris
ed, to learn that its author, Nicholas
Crouch, also the composer of several
other popular songs, is employed as a
varnisher in a furniture factory in Hal
tiinoro. In appearance he bus' a mark-(
ed and expressive countenance, sinewy'
form, and iron-gray hair. He is ap
parently an ordinary mechanic, but tho
brain which was once so fertilo witli
ideas can still conceive thoughts worthy
of the man. His history is interesting
because of his numerous successes ami
failuies. He was born in Kngland in
IMS, and began a brilliant musical ca
reer as a violinist, making considerable
fame as a performer, and being intimate
with Kossini and oilier famous musi
cians of the earlier part of the century.
He came to America ns a solo perform
er, and was quite successful, accumu
lating a fortune. Illness and specula
tion brought him to destitution, and
he finally landed at Kichmoud, Va,, as
a choir-leader and music-teacher.
During tho war of tho rebellion ho
served In the Confederate army, and
sustained severe injuries in the losing
cause. From the Held of Leo's sur
render ho made his way, after a time,
with three ribs broken and a hand bad
ly smashed, to Kuokingham Court
House, Va. Here he entered the ser
vice of a Mr. Perkins as a gardener and
farm hand, glad to earn in an honest
way a crust of bread. From this place
he came to Haltiinore, where he has re
mained over since, working for Ids sus
tenance with hands that once recorded
tho most delightful melodies and won
applause from sovereigns.
