eloigning in fair condition between this

An exchange thinks the "great prin

him any longer.

Conrad Ripple, the brewer of the best

See notice of pocket-book lost by Mr.
Burger of Louisville. It is hoped that
it is found by some man whose honesty
is worth more than $600. The loser is
an honest hard working man and the
loss is a severe one.
A 'bus driver named Elmer Powell,
entered the B. & M. ticket office at Ot
tumwa, last week, and robbed it of a small
amount of money and a watch. He

Mr. Edward McShane, county Treas
urer of Douglas county, was married
last week to Miss Agnes Magin, of Bur
lington. The Springfield, Mass. Republican
says : "An uncle of George Francis
Train has made oath that his notorious
nephew is a lunatic, and has asked to be
appointed gurdian over him. It must
be a powerful sense of duty that prompts
him to assume sueh an incumbrance."
The Fremont Tribune sails into Post
master Griffin, at Omaha, for insulting
the editor of the Bee while in company
with a lady. As we understood it, the
Tribune is mistaken in the man. It was
not Mr. Griffin, but one of his clerks
who insulted Mr. Rc. ter, and Qie
Bee calls on Mr. Griffin .a dispense with
the services of the offending clerk, which
he has not yet done.
Notwithstanding the low price of pork

shoulders and bacon. Is this business?

Mr. Balcombe says that Dr. Miller
was quite nervous after returning from
Boston when questioned closely in re
gard to what was done there on the
transfer bus'ness. It now seems that
he had a cause for being nerrous. We
had supposed, however, that the Dr.
was more hardened to these things, and
would be able to pass the ordeal of a
cross-examination without displaying
that nervousness bo common among new
The New York Tribune of recent
date, contains an announcement of the
organization of the "Burlington & Mis
souri River Railroad Company in Colo
rado," with J. W. Brooks, President.
This is the next link in the great trans
continental route which crosses the Mis
souri river at Plattsmouth. We have
no further particulars of the organiza
tion at the present writing, but w can
readily understand the great benefit this
continuation of the line will be to our
city, county and State. Every Ne
braskian should rejoice.
The arrangements have been perfected
for holding the Catholic Fair, at Fitz
eerald's Hall, and the time set for the
evenings of the 9th and 10th inst.
Tuesday and Wednesday of next week,
The general programme will be similar
to that of last year, and Father Hayes
assures us that the Fair will be fully equal
to the last one, and an effort wll be
made to make it even superior. Among
the attractions will be an elegant car
riage robe, for which Father Hayes paid
$45 in greenbacks, and which he has do
nated to be voted to the most popular
crentleman in the city. He has also do
nated his superb canary a beautiful
singer to be voted to the handsomest
lady in the city. Arrangements have
been made for a grand opening concert,
and one of the interesting features of
the occasion will be the recitatian of

a fine time and a large attendance.

J. N. Wise, Esq., has advices from
Hon. J. H. Warwick, stating that he
will visit our city on or about the 22d inst,
at which time he will lecture at Fitz
gerald's Hall. Those who heard thia
famous lecturer while visiting our city
ast winter, require no second notice of
his coming, for they will all be on hand.
It was said to be by far tht best lecture
of the season. His "Evening with
Shakspeare and the Poets" will capti
vate any audience in the world. We ex
pect to see Fitzgerald's Hall filled to
overflowing on the occasion of his visit
here. Probably no lecturer in the field
has received higher encomiums from the
press of the land than has Warwick.
It is a noticable fact that not a Re
publican paper in the State has endorsed
Senator Tipton's late speech in the Sen
ate, while every Democratic paper in the
State has endorsed it. There are one or
two so-called Republican papers that
dared not ex press an independent thought
upon anything, and consequently they
have said nothing about the speech, ex
cept perhaps, to simply notice the fact
that the Senator had made a speech, or
to copy some portions without criticism.
Aside from these, the Republican press
of Nebraska has been unanimous in its
condemnation. Is Senator Tipton right
as a Republican, and is the entire Re
publican press of the State wrocg ?

Clisbee will keep up his stock to the de

found an accommedating business man.
The deep snow is driving the game to
the lowlands and timber for food and
shelter. Last Wednesday ' two deer
came charging down Sixth street from
the north, having evidently been driven
from the Platte Bottom by hunters. A
arge number of teams were on the
street at the time, and in the vicinity of
Streight'a Stable several teams were
congregated. They passed entirely
through the city on the line of Sixth
street and kept on in a southerly direc
tion. Several parties started in pursuit,
and a Mr. Cook succeeded in bringing
down one of them, which weighs 160
pounds, choice pieces of which can be
had at Fickler's Meat Market.

complainant, who is an infant in the eyes

how he was thrashed with an iron ram

dragged about the house and down two
flights of stairs by the hair, and how, by
way of encouraging penitential medita

tank of hot water, and kept there for ten
hours, in such a position that he was un
able to stand up or sit down. The pa

Dear Herald: We are having a
real Arctic winter. Such a season of
frost and snow was never before known
in this country. The railroad is blocked
and will be for some time, for no corpo
ration can contend with such storms.
Hundreds of men are employed, but a
few hours of wind and snow demand
that the Herculean task be performed
again. We have had the rigors of such
a winter for two months, with only a
few pleasant days intervening. It is ex
tremely unfortunate for this country that
this winter especially Ehould have been
so unprecedentedly severe.
Many men had invested largely in cat
tle and sheep the mild winter and the
small amount of snow that has hitherto
fallen making cattle raising very profit
able but this terrible season will set
the country back at least five yea.s.
Many cattle and sheep are dying for
want of food and shelter, and many are
lost in the stampedes that take place
during a severe storm. In former win
ters it has not been necessary to provide
hay, and no provision was made last fall
for such a succession of storms. As a
compensation, however, for this long
reign of Boreas, we shall doubtless have
an unusual growth of grass next sum
mer, and a large supply of water for ir
rigation a desideratum we have not
known for several summers.
We had a fine day for Christmas, and
we celebrated it in a quiet way. I was
invited to dine with Gen. King, and a
model dinner it was. I was honored
with a present from Mrs. King, of Hen
ry Ward Beecher's "Life of Christ"
a most gorgeously bound volume, with
numerous steel plate and wood engra
vings, suitable for a holiday gift, worth
at least ten dollars. Every family ought
to have a copy of this invaluable work.
At 5 o'clock, p. m , we were all invited
to see the Christmas tree at the Gener
al's, after it was dressed and lighted up.
As Mrs. King's numerous relatives are
wealthy, the family were deluged with
gifts. Such an array of Christmas pres
ents I never could have dreamed of;
oil paintings, chromos, jewelry rich and
rare, costly and choice volumes, articles
of virtu of great value, bijoutre dolls for
the children, some of them costing not
less than twenty-live dollars each splen
didly dressed and articulating the words
pa, ma, distinctly, by a gentle manipula
tion of hidden springs, velocipedes,
steam engines, &c, &c. The whole ar
ray, looking like an immense Bazaar,
could not have cost less than $500.
No family '; more, richly deserves
the kind regard of friends, for they are
among the very best people on this
round earth. - A select gathering and
oyster supper at Capt. Owens' closed
the festivities of the day. How many
of us will see Christmas In 1872?

To the Public: In another column we
present to our policy holders and the
public in general, a special statement
showing the condition of this company
on thi I5th day of November, 1S71.
As considerable doubt still exists as to
the solvency of many of the leading
companies, we refer to the subjoined
statement with pride, and ask a careful
psrusal of the same. The fact of our
having a handsome surplus over and
above all liabilities before the great fire
and it being generally known that our
losses were small, business commenced
pouring in from a majority of our agen
cics, immediately after the Chicago fire
and the month of October has closed.
giving us over fifteen thousand dollars in
premiums, or over three times as much
as the same month last year. This
large increase in premiums for Oc
tober, over the same month in the last
year, speaks volumes for the credit of
the company, and shows the value placed
upon our policies, both at home and
abroad, in such times of doubt as the
Itisniw definitely stated that fifty-
seven (heretofore sound and reliable) in
surance companies have suspended, and
the insurance journals speak in a manner
which warn us that the end is not yet.
Many of the leading companies at the
east are by this great calamity reduced
to an even footing with a number of
the medium companies at the west, and
we now present our claims as being in
every respect as worthy of your confi
dence, as those companies at the east.
With the present adequate rates, eco
nomical management, and handsome
surplus over and above all liabilities, we
enter the contest with the full assurance
that the "St. Joseph ' stands second to
no company in the we.r.
