ten per cent bonds. This would bo about
$80,000, or $90,000 to build tho road

For Cass county were empaneled yester
day, and were notified by the Judge
that he only empaneled them as a mat

Sheriff had informed him that they
knew of no business to come before the
jury. Judge Lake made this the occa
sion for paying a very high compliment
to the people of Cass county for the good
order which prevailed, also to the officers
who are conservators of the peace in this
county for their efficiency in niaintain
order. lie said it was very remarkable
that a county so densely settled as Cass
should have no business for a grand
jury, after so long a lapse of time, and
attributed it largely to the fact of the
certainty rather than the severity of the
punishment which had heretofore been
meted out to criminals in this vicinity-

Mr. Z. Shed has made a failure of the

expact no better fate. The people may
not all agree with a paper in politic,

when it shows that it i3 endeavering to
accomplish good, and is actually doing
so besides being a good medium for
general news, they will stick to it "

and corn-
menced operations as-agents for the sale
of Furnas & Sons' Nursery Stock. This
Nursery is already well known through
out Nebraska as being well supplied with
everything in their line. It is hardly
necessary for us to speak of the import
ance of procuring trees and shrubs which
have been propagated and raised on our
own soil, and time and experience has
demonstrated the fact that fruit of a su
perior quality, and in abundance, can be
grown on our soil and in our climate.
Messrs. Furnas & Sons are cultivating
largely only of those varieties which
have been satisfactorily tested in the
West, and efTer their tre:s to the public
on terms and rates that will enable all to
plant. They guarantee their stock true
to name and at prices as low as Eastern
nurseries, less the item cf freight. The
well known reputation of the proprie
tor, insures to purchasers that they will
not be deceived in their purchases and
that tl.ey will get what they order.
The agents before mentioned will can

of purchasing trees will do well to give
thflm their orders. They will also act a

The Omaha Herald asks if there is
" party organization in Otoe, Cms,
Nemaha or Richardson counties that
can be relied upon for a momeat in any
flection State, couaty or municipal."
We cannot answer for Otoe, Nemaha or
Richardson, but we think we can answer
for Cass, and that most emphatically
yrt. It has never failed in but a single
a'ect'mi that of the fall of 1S70 when
the present Legislature was elected, an J
we thiiik tho people of all parties in
Cars are pretty well satisfied with the ex
periment. There are always a few dis"
confuted spirits in every party ; but wa
think that from this day hence the' Re
publican parly of Cass "can be relied
a;o:" for larger majorities than ever
before given, at SttUe, county and cau
u'.ciptl elections."
Ths dsy brfjM the commencement of
the rec.ct a.ljourned session of the Leg
islature the Lincoln Statesman published
a lengthy Jit of "pet mimes" which the
Journal was said to have applied to the
Legislature. It was published with a
view to showing the unfairness and vin
dictiveness of the Journal. Perhaps a
careful examination of the col a tuns
of the Statesman, for the past three
weeks would reveal tho. fact that they
had greatly enlarged the list of "pat
naajes." Are these Legislators worse
than at the winter session, or is the
Statesman more holy, or has it been
thus long in finding out that which the
Journal knew last winter, or does it
really make a difference whoso "ox is
The Chronicle says "an attempt to lie
out of the disgrace" brought upon
our State by the present Legislature
"would only make the matter worse."
Probably that is all true, but would it
not be mere manly and honorable to
even lie a trifle in the attempt to save
the good name ef our State, than to lie
for the purpose and with the intent of
bringing deeper disgrace upon it. We
would always prefer to be on the side
that endeavored to save the reputation
of the tt".
The Burlington Haitfc-Eyc ' pub
lishes the affidavit of W. A. Lynch, of
Ft. Dodge, that the editor of the Henry
Co Pros a democratic paper, told the said
Lynch that he had fold the influence of
his paper to Mr. Allison for the senato
rial campaign for the sum of $500, $325
had already been paid on the election of
Allison. He also said he had offered to
sell to Harlan for 1,000, but that Harlan
refused to buy.
Under the above heading, Dr. Blue,
editor of the Nebraska City News, writes
as follows to the St. Louis Republican :
A Nebraska City paper last Saturday
had the following significant notice :
Owing to circumstances beyond our
control, the Burlington and Missouri
Railroad Company are compelled to re
fute all grain to bs shipped in bulk to
Chicago, sntil farther notice.
E. 1. Smith, Agent.
This simply mean that the i'hicago
elevators are full cf Nebraska grain, and
that our merchants must stop buying and
all coaiuierci .l operations among us sua
pended tiil the great anacouda of the
takes can uige:t its morning meal. Wfill

Our great grain and cattle market to

them withiu seventy-five miles of this
great centre. Why doe3 not the latter
deflect from its Ion;; route over uupaying
teriitory towards Omaha at least Rive
a branch to the South Platte? Why
docs nit the Missouri Pacific build the
lor g talked of trunk railroad up the wet
side of the Missouri river to t h is point?

its capacity, now is the time for St. Lou

zandt respond to our cry, "Come over
and help us?"
Nebraska City, Jan. 15, 1872. "
The Omaha Republican gives the
Jerald of that place a rap over the
knuckles on the "people's" movement
which it is calling for, by 6bowing that
a majority of the members of the Legis
lature whom both papers hare been
rating so soundly were either Democrats
or elected on "people's tickets." x
Senator Hilton, whom Mr. Thomas,
of the Omaha Republican, now delights
to class as the principal among the "den
of thievos," and whose name appears
conspicuously in the Republican a "black
list,'.' is tho man in whose election the
same Mr. Thomas delighted one year
ago, as a triumph over rascality. Until
we have consistent and henest men at the
helm of our political newspapers, is it
reasonable to expect a pacific and hon
est administration of public affairs?
Mr. Hilton is probably no worse man
now than when Mr. Thomas gloried over
his election. . Perhaps, however, he
does not now serve Mr. Thomas pur
pose B3 well as he did then.
The Omaha Herald took up the call
for a mass meeting in this city last night,
as a political movement to unite all the
parties of tho State. This was not the
intention at all, but it was intended as a
kind of class meeting on the subject of
local interest?. We would oppose all
such effort! in politics as the very worst
policy the State could pursue. We be
lieve the salvation of the country de
pends upon two political parties, nnd
Peking power, both will put forward
their lot men and insist on honest
eon duct. This is tho only way out
cf our present difficulty, and the Uerahl

the old party which it represents Neb.
City Citron kle.
We fully agree with the Chronicle
that the only way out of our present
muddled state of affairs is to hereafter
adhere closer to parties, that there may
be some other than personal intetests to
be served by public men. The HeraLVs

' We copy the following account of the
murder of E. J. Gass, brother of our
fellow townsman, Judge P. P. Gass,
from the Neosho county (Kansas) Jour
nal nf the 20th inst. :
"E. J. Gass an estimable citizen who
lived on Walnut Creek, Crawford county,
adjoining John llor.eley, some 10 miles
North-east of here, was inot brutually
murdered early Wednesday morning by
a young man named William Moore,
wlio had been in his employ only some
thirty days, and who formerly lived in
in Oakaloosa, Iowa.
It seems that Gas, .who was a single
man, and was a stock dealer, h&d re
ceived some money tho day before from
some a!e made, and that young Moore
was aware of the fact. Consequently,
about daylight of the day mentioned,
while G.-s was just finishinj: dressing,
he was struck by Moore with an ax, and
severely wounded iu the shoulder; aud
immediately springing to the door and
yelling "murder !" started to run from
his assa.-io. But, fallowed instantly, he
was aain struck by the murderous
weapon in the han Is tf the fiend, and, at
one stroke, his head was nearly severed
from his body.
John Pelso, who lives less than a quar
ter of a mile from the sceue of the
traged3', heard tho cry of the doomed
man and saw the fatal Mow struck, and
in-tantly started in pursuit of the mur
derer, aud pressed him so closely that he
dropped the pocket-book and a suit of
clothes, which had incited him to com
mit thoheilish deed.
The neighborhood being aroused,
joined in the pursuit of the fugitive, who
had gained the timber skirting Walnut
Creek ; but about noon wa discovered
some two miles from Gass' house. Al
though unuriued, he refused to sui ren
der, and resisting desperately, was shot
by cne of the pursuing party and se
cured. Tho bullet penetrated the shoulder
and lung, and inflicted what will proba
bly be a fatal wound.
Should he lire, he will be turned over
to the .ivil authorities for oommitmeut
and t rial -
Too much credit cannot be iven the
citizens who made the capture, for the
zeal exhibited in the pursuit of the in
human murderer, and for the greater
moderation which restrained them from
banging him to the nearest tree. We
Rre gratified that law and not mob vio
lence, is yit ?uprem:j in Southern Kan
sas. Visiting the Episcopal Church last
night I heard an excellent sermon the
text is found in the 1st Ep. to the Cor.
the 9th Ch. and the last four verses.
A christian's holy career through this
life v.a? grandly set forth; would that 1
could give more than a short synopsis of
the whole of it.
We were reminded of the Christmas
that had pa.-cd; v.e turn our backs to
it's festivities, and i:cr lies before us the
not less important and glorious Easter;
but before we reach that day, seventy
days are to be lived through, during
winch we arc to prepare, that we may
rightly celebrate tho resurrection of our
Saviour. These seventy days aleo re
minds us of tho shortness of our lives,
even though the number of our years
fhould be three score and ten; therefore
with Moses wo pray : "So teach us to
number our days that we may apply our
hearts unto wisdom!" As now these
seventy days are passing one by one, we
should, as the Apostle of old, bring our
bodies under subjection, lay off the car
nal mind, that we may bo rightly pre
pared, through sanctification, to celebrate
that great and glorious Easter which
tLall be opened up to us all.
The late Dr. Marshall Hall, of Ens-
land, said: "If I were seriously, ill of

nutriment, gaspings for air cannot cure
you ; monkey capers in a gymnasium
cannot cure you, and stimulants cannot
cure. What consumptives want is pure

"There was a ludicrous incident hap
pened at a cone rt last week. I believe it
is an established fact that ouie ladies
rnak'3 a bu-tle of newspapers. To the
mortification of a young lady attending a
concert, her overdress caubt on the back
of the seat, revealing through the open
ing an illusrati-d paper. This recalls
the old story of how a certain city was
about to be destroyed. The women wore
allowed to leave and were told that they
might carry away upon their bucks what
ever they most prized. Each woman
took a man. Of the present generation
it has been said that they are so weak in
their backs that not many men coul.l be
saved under such circumstances Lut here
was a young, delicate creature, with tho
whole Tammany Ring on her back, and
she smiling as if in sweet unconsciousness.
A friend sitting behind her threw her
shawl over tho "Na.-t'-y picture" until
the dress was adjusted
A Tkuly Gooi Man. A ripid Sab
bathaiian, who occasionally exhorts in
church, and fiih the office of Justice of
the Peace in a Western village, not long
since went on a deer hunt with a party
composed of five or six joung hunters
By some unaccountable mistake ho lot
his reckoning, and much to his certifi
cation, be found, on reference to his pa
pers on the third day of the hunt, that
it was Sunda3T, when he supposed it was
Saturday, lie opened the morning with
a prayer, and told his companions that,
as a chrbt an and as a magi.-trate, he
could not hunt that day; and accordingly
drew forth his pocket-BiLle and com
His wo: Idly minded cornpanions
thought, with the Baltimore bank man,
"there wm no Sabbaths in Revolutiona
ry times," and tot k the hound-i and
started in pursuit of game. It was not
long before the whole pack was in full
cry, and the worthy magistrate, on look
ing up from the sacred book discovered
a tine Luck making for the camp. With
out a minutes deliberation he seized a
loaded rifle, and plugged the deer be
tween tuo antlers.
"Gentlemen," said" he, when hi3
friends came to the spot, it is contrary to
the laws of Mo.-es and the revised stat
utes of Pennsylvania to travel on Sunday
and for thatrea-on I shot that fallow."
Which do You Pkefer? Mary says
to her lover, "If you pjtdlr the keg of
lagt-r, or the bottle of wine to me, just
taKo tlie iu to tii e magistrate and get
married to them."
"What do you mean?" asked John.
"Just what I say. I don't want a
young mau to come here evenings chaw
ing cloves to cover bis breath and to
hide his habits of drinking. If you love
lager more than you love me, just marry
it nt once, and don't divide your afTec
tions between a woman and wiue, or a
woman and lager love and liquor have
co affinity."
"Why, Mary, bow ycu t&'k," ex
ctaiiiicd John.
"Yes, I mean what I Fay; unless you
sign the pledge and keep it you had bet
ter not come here aain."
The above is from the Golden Censer,
Roekford, lil. We imagine that John
went away that night somewhat dis
turbed, pei haps an.i;iy; but ths next
morning, free Iroin la.uer and cloves, and
without wine, he awoke, and concluded
that Mary wa a jewel of a girl, that she
was right and he himself was in the
wrong. He signed the pledge and kept
it, and married .nary instead or lager.
Serpent &kla I'tltizcd.
Prescolt tells us that the Aztecs made"
their -war drums of serpent skin; but we
wore not aware, until very recently, that
any of our modern leather Lad such a
snaky origin. An exchauge staiej hat
a single establishment in Boston, !a.-t
year, tanned fifty anaconda skins far
hoot leather. The boots are valued at
fifty dollars a pair. The largest of these
skms as forty feet in fangth. The fan
ning processes were siiu.lar to those in
the manufacture cf aliigator bather, the
product being a very beautiful and high
ly finished quality of leather, glossy,
mottled, pliable, and exceedingly durable.
Frankness. Be frank with the world.
Frankucss is the child of honesty and
courage. If a friend a.-ks you a favor
you should grant it, if it is rea
sonable; if it is not you should tell hitu
plainly why you cannot. You wiil wrong
him and wrong youisclf by equivocation
of any kind. Never do a wrong tiling
to make a friend or keep one. The ui n
who requires you to do so i dually pur
chased and at a sacrifice. Deal kindly
and firmly with all men, and you will
find it the policy wiiich wears best.
If in Kreent Adventure at St. Loait.
From the St. Lou 14 Journal of Commerce.
Yesterday an elderly man, well dressed
and wearing the cosmopolitan air of
much travel, pushed open the oifict
door of the Planters' House, and, attend
ed by the attentive servants who claimed
bis baggage, advanced to the counter
where the registering book lay. He
laid down his shawl upon the counter,
and picked from the rack a pen, as he
wrote in clear well defined characters his
name. The n?u:e seemed to have a
queer efiect upon the clerk, who 1 ad
been bowing obst quiously to the grizzled
gray old man, who had ju.-t written his
signature. The clerk turned sickly pale
with contempt and scorn. The stranger
turned and passed out, but returning in
a short time said, "l il take some din
ner." The clerk remarked in substance that
he th. uht the Planters' House would
be d d first, and pointed to where
his name had been erased. .
"What is the meaning of this out
rage?" sternly asked the old aian, pul
ling indignantly at his distingue gray
"It means simply this, that the Plan
ters House don't keep niters. If you
want anything you will have to go else
where." said the intelligent clerk.
Here tho crowd thickened, and a rush
wa- made toward the book to seethe name
of thi man who was the subject of the row.
Every man who saw the name either
gasped approval or grunted dissent. The
majority gasped. The crowd read upon
the book simply the name, "r rederick
Douelas, WashiuKton, D. C "
This name seemed enough to damn
the man in the estimation of nine out of
ten, who read and sympathized with the
Mr. Douglas made a short speech, in
which ha denounced in very indignant
term tha procedure. lie said he had
traveled in ail the civilized eountriej of
Europe, had been received by the high
est, and nowhere had he been where ho
had received such shameful treatment
The crowd listened jeeringly, when
Mr. Douglas retired to find quarters else
where. Public opinion seems to censure the
action of the proprietors of the Planters'
House. It is thought that, notwith
standing his being a negro, a room micht
have been given him, where he could
have taken his meals, if prejudice did
prevent him to cuter the public dining
