Tootle, Hanna & Clark, bankers, re
ceived yesterday, by the B. & M. R. R.,
one of the famous Diebold & Kienzee
burglar proof safes, provided with two
of the never-have-been-picked Sargeant
four tumbler 100,000,000 combination
automatic locks. The safe weighs 5600
pounds, and cost $2,500. Mr. Clark had
a special improvement made ou the out
hide lock, fixed in accordance with his
own suggestion. It consists of a contri
vance for the removal of the dial, so that
it can be taken away from the safe and
deposited elsewhere. When the dial is
removed the safe cannot possibly be un
locked, even by the person who locked it.
This Effectually blocks the game-, so
often played by daring burglars of mak
ing the cashier open the safe for them,
on pain of being killed. It renders lie
onetsiiiar an impossibility, even by him,
until the dial is secured, and that might
involve the opening of another safe, in
another part of the city. We are in
clined to the belief that money once de
posited in Mr. Clark's safe will be secure
from burglars. The safe is within a
large fire-proof vaults which, alone,
would worry a burglar to enter. ,

Some of our neighbors hare been
claiming that they shipped more grain
than we did at Plattsmouth. We call
on them to give us the official figures of
their shipments during the past month,
under the affidavit of the shippers, and
we will do the same. Let as have no
blowing about this matter. Give the
figures or "dry up." We believe that
twice the amount of grain has been ship
ped from Plattsmouth as from any other
point on the upper Missouri river.
THE R. R. t'OSTHACT.
The city has been well filled with rail
road contractors for the past two days.
A large number from Omaha and Coun
cil Bluffs, aud other points, are in town.
There will probably be thirty or forty
bids put in during the day. The woik
to be done embraces twenty miles of the
B. & M. road west from Plattsmouth,
commencing at a point -sixty miles wost
from the city and ending at the end of
the eightieth mile west from the city.
It is not probable the bids will be opened
until to-morrow, and it will take at least
a day or more to canvass the bids and
decide upon the. best bid, so that the
successful bidder will not, probably be
announced before Saturday.
We have often stated that Plattsmouth
was the great Lumber and Grain Mar
ket of the west, and we now take pleas
ure in refering our readers to the Lum
ber advertisement of of W. A. Water
man & Son, and especially to the great
reduction in price made by them. The
very low prices at which our dealers are
offering 1 amber is drawing the trade here
from a long distance. Hereafter it will
pay dealers at Nebraska City and other
towns of the State to come here for their
supplies. The figures quoted in the ad
vertisement are for retail. If a large
bill is purchased, we presume a liberal
discount would be made.

tV 'Jit. Xoaedale Fall Dead at the
-r- C'bnreh Door.
Sir. F. 51. Lonsdale, a resident of this
city for the past three years, died sud
denly at the Episcopal Church
la.t evening, just at the commencement
of the sermon. He was apparently well
and hearty, and almost the last man in
the community that would have been
picked upon as likt'y to die suddenly.
He attended church in the morning, and
again in the evening. During prayer he
was heard to give a peculiar cough, and
immediately he arore ani started toward
the church door, with one hand over his
mouth. As he reached the door he
beconed with the other hand for some
one to come. Several men who were sit
ting near rushed to his assistance, and
reached him just as he was falling, a
stream of blood pouring from his mouth.
Messengers were despatched in every di
rection for medical aid, but in less than
five minutes he was lifeless. He was
placed upon a litter and carried home,
where his -wife and child were called
upoy to look at the cold clay of him who
had lift them but an hour before iu the full
enjoyment of his health. - Mr. Lonsdale
was born in England, near London, in
the year 1S37, and consequently
v. a3 33 years old. He entered the Eng
lish Navy at the age of 15, and served
there until about the time of the out
break of the rebellion in this country.
He came to New York 'and entered the
American Navy, where he served until
the close ef the war. He then embarked
as mate upon a merchant vessel, was
shipwrecked off the coast of Florida,
and drifted about upon a spar for seve
ral days before he was picked up. This
experience gave him a distaste of the
sea, and he decided to abandon the
ocean entirely. He immediately started
west and settled in this city, where he
married and settled down to pass the re
mainder of his life in peace and quiet.
He has lived in this city about three
years, and was respected and esteemed
by all who knew him. He was industri
ous and temperate, and held at the time
of his death, important positions in the
order of Good Templars. His remains
wore followed to their last resting place
this afternoon. We learn that he had a
slight attack of bleeding at the lungs
some weeks ago but had paid but little
attention to it, as he was otherwise very
hearty. His ndden demise is but an
other and a terrible reminder of the fact
that "in the midst of life we are in
Mr. Lonsdale had applied for and been

A HWIXDLER PASS Itl.1I AROOB
Last Friday, says the Lawrence Trib
vne, a man calling himself Fred. L. Kent,'
and representing himself as the agent of
the Nationals, came to this city and en
gaged board at the Sherman House, for
himself and seventeen actors. He in
serted his advertisements and had some
printing done. Being somewhat of an
epicure in the matter of drinks, he went
to the Head Center and run up conside
rable of a bill for cigars and brandy
smashes. Suspicion was soon aroused
that all was not right, and a dupatoh was
sent to Leavenworth in regard ts him
but no answer was obtained. On Sunday
several articles of clothing and jowelry
were missed from the Sherman House,
and the theft was fastened upon hitu.
He was accordingly arrested and placed
in jail, and on Monday had his trial and
was found euilty. His fine and costs
amounted to $40. He then went to one
of our lawyers, and by assigning the
proceeds of the theater on Monday night,
he procured the means of paying his
fine. Of course the troupe did not
come, and Mr. Kent's confiding friends
discovered that they were victimized.
Mr. Kent was once a well known actor,
and of late was a member of the Na

A If eartleaa Ca.
For the Ix-.l few years a young and
helpless woman. whr had been deserted
by her huband, has been, with her two
small children, dependent upon the
county for support. A short time since
Judge Stocker investigated her case and
found that ehe was the only daughter of
a man living in this part of the country,
reputed to be worth 40,000 to $50,000:
that this father had utterly neglected
her; treated her iu the most heartless
and cruel manner, and refused to do
anything for her support. On ascer
taincr thette facts, the Judire uromrtlv
ued the heartless father for the total
amount ptid out by the county for the
woman's support. The case came up
before the Circuit Court yesterday, and
was ably argued, but b fore the case was
given to the jury the defendant gave up
the case and paid over the amount
claim ad, together with costs to the
County Court. With J udge Stocker to
fofow him up in this way, it probable
that the defendant will hereafter bupport
this helpless daughter from motives of
ml icy, if aot of humanity. Alton i III. )
" PECK'S MILK COOLER.
Mr. Geo. Southard is selling the
rights for using this invaluable aparatus
in Nebra.ka. The American Artizan
says of it :
"This invention enables a large por
tion of the labor hitherto requisite in
dairy operations to le dUpensod wih,
inasmuch as the milk may be placed ;n
large reservoirs from which the ri n
cream may be removed with a dipjer,
thus avoiding the use of milk pans, the
trouble of skimming, etc. Its value in
the city milk trafic is also very obvious,
and there can be but little doubt that it
constitutes the most important improve
ment in the branch to which it relates
that has been brought to the notice of
the public for many years.
