So passtth away the yrung, the beau
tiful, the lovely ; but bard it is for us to
realize that our dear little friend has
gone. Yet a sombre looking casket ad
monlshes us, that the spirit has flown
gone to dwell in the realms of the great
unseen. Her spirit was loo pure, too
bright, to remain in this cold, un
chaste, and sin-cursed world. For three
short years she had been the joy, the
liC, the hope of a fond and doting fath
er and mother.
Her little angel face ever wore a smile
of innocent happiness, and her cheery
voice was always ready to welcome fath
er, mother or fiiend. But the pure
bright, sweet flower, was r.ipped ia the
bud; not too young, too bright, too
lovely to die ; and the Death Angel hov
ered over her sleepless and suffering
couch, awaiting the finale of life the
great dissolution of body and souL
Calmly and peacefully the spirit left
the frail tenement of clay and-winged its
flight home, to the bosom of its God, to
remain forever happy in communion
with the Father and with the angels.

one of our most successful fruit cultur-

and a number of specimen clusters of
grapes, show conclusively that Mr. W.

fruit grow where but a few years ago
there was none. The Ionia, Concord,
Isabella and Delaware were all repre
sented in the specimens and ad were
very fine indeed. Mr. Wheeler informs
us that Mr. Wright's apples were really
the finest shown at Lincoln, though ow

no premium could be awarded.
' Our ITe-w Tostage Law.
The public seems to have overlooked
a provision in the new postage law,
adopted at the last session of Congress
and now in force, providing that pack
aces of dry gvl;s hardware and other
merchandise, weighing twelve ounces or
les, may n ibuik-u t . any part 01 the
United States n: a u.iii .riii rate of two
cents for each t ounces. Thus a
package weighing twelve ouiices may be
sent bv mail to auv part of the Union
for twelve cents. In England this fea
ture is called the Parcel Post system,
and the English people avail themselves
of it to an immense extent. V hen gen
eraliy understood among our people it
will tirobablv become very popular and
may cut largely into the business of the
expres companies. If a man can send
a twelve ounce package from Indianapo
lis to New York or San Francisco by
mail for twelve cents, he will not be likf
ly to pay the express company four or
five times that amount. But if the gov
ernment can afford to carry it for twelve
cents, the express company can do the
same, and the result may simply be
that on small packages tho express com
panies wi;l reduce their charges to gov
ernment rates. d&w-ot

ISAAC V 11. KS,
CH HUD. .
We asked the jovial Vivian for a local
item, Monday, and he grulfly an
swered "write up the mud, 'nough local
for a week."
Mud is a hydrophrsphatic compound
that elongates the pedally extremetics of
mman bipeds in transvere directions as
hey propel themselves horizontally along
he upper perihelion of the the subma-
ine hemi.-phere and often causes a lati
udinal catastrophe to take the plaee of
the perpendicular status by which .man
kind are supposed to peregrinate.
Mud is of two kinds, clean mud and
dirty mud. Clean mud is the kind little
boys get on their clothes and little legs
and so on, when they wade round in the
puddles Saturday afternoons when school
is out, and that their mamas never whips
Dirty mud is when the '"buss" goes
tha-chuck over the cross walk into mud-
holes, just as you are crossing the street,
and your new pants and shiny boots gets
a dose, or else when a big pig chases a
little pig down the side walk on a ra.ny
day, and the little pig don't see nothin',
and ycu don't see nothin,' till all "to
onc't" you both sit down in the gutter.
This is dirty mud.

Ti3 Sheriff ani Ei Buttery Take a Little
ia Theirs ; Soae Shooting, See.
Monday evening, just about paper-
time, our boy came rushing up with
llOh, Mr. Mac ! if you go up the street
you can get the best item out." Well,
what is it? "A man fhot two times at
the sheriff and then shot himself, and
he's dead now, up in Buttery's barn."
Throwing on our coat, we hurrried up
to the Livery stable of Buttery & La
zenby, and f und a large crowd gathered
there. The Sheriff and Ed. Bntterv
were just taking a pale, desperate look
iug fellow away in a carriage. From
cuienn tJonnson ana .nr. ivi .uuttery
we learn the following
Sometime about noon, Tuesday,
stranger, apparently of Jewish descent
made hisappearancean 1 wanted to trad
off-a pair of horses and a buggy, thai he
sail he had at the barn of I'eter Bates
Mr. K. Buttery went over there and saw
the horses, and no sooner did he clap
eyes on them than he knew them to b
ironi James fctephenson s stable, at
Omaha, and suspecting something h
put the etraoge man. off wjth the CJcqfi
that thi monies he wou'd like to trade
were out, but if he would come lack in
nn Iinnr fir so thev mi srht trade. But
tery then went down town to Wm. Stad
elmann, (Stephenson's brother in-law),
and advised him of the fact.
A telegram was sent to Stephenson,
at once, describing the horses, and the
answer came back quick and 6harp,
'Have such a team out -.arrest the man
and keep the horses."
Sheriff Johnson and Mr. Buttery then
arivi tn hunt Mr. horse thief up. As
they walked up Fourth street they eaw
him sitting in the door of the barn. As
they approached he got up and walked
towards the small door at the east side
of the barn. The Sheriff walked down
that way, and Mr. Buttery said "Sheriff,
this is the man you are after." Before
the words were out of his mouth the fel-I'-.-.v
uii-w a pistol fiom his pants pocket
a:.d tired at the Sheriff, the bullet grazing
the hair on E. Buttery's head. Sheriff
Ji hnson grabbed tho hand with the re
volver in i:, and Buttery went for the
otlur; in the melee the thief managed
to cock and pull the trigeer twice more,
but the pistol missed fire. The third
time, just as his e'bnw bent upward, the
shooting iron happily went off.aga n,
the ball knocking two of his teeth out
and lodging in the roof of his mouth.
When the blood spirted out, Mr.
horse thief wilted down on the floor and
played pos-uiu awhile ; but finui:i2 that
was no go, he "came to," was put in a
caniage and driven to the Platte Valley
House, where Doctor Livingston probed
the wound, and finding nothing danger
ous, the Sheriff removed him to the
county jail to await further orders.
This morning Mr. Stephenson came
down from Omaha, claimed his team,
and stated that the man gave his name
as Antonie Lansing, and hired tho team
to go ten miles north. The Omaha
whisky being very confusing, he drove
straight south, and after trying his best
to shoot our Sheriff and our jolly livery
man, Mr. Buttery, he will probably
serve a campaign or two at breaking
stone, if not put on a larger tour.
The Sheriff of Omaha comes down to
morrow to remove him to Douglas coun
ty. Cass is a poor place for horse
thieves to come to as long as Joe. John
son is Sheriff.

This wonderful vegetable restorative
is the fehcet-anchor of the feeble and de
bilitated. As a tonic and cordial for tlu
aged and languid it ha3 no equal among
stomachics. As a remedy for the ner
vous weakness to which women are es
pecially subject, it is superseding every
other stimulant. In all climates, tropi
cal, temperate or frigid, it acts as a
speeifio in every species of disorder
which undermines the bodily strength
and breaks down the animal spirits.
