If you will condescend to print for a
black man I will furni.-h a few lines. In
reading the Bible there are biasings
promised to the good people, and curse
agiuust the wicked. After reading Sum
ner's letter to ' the colored people, I
picked out the 8th verse, of the ".00th
Psalm and adopted it as my curse on
him. It reads thus : "Iot his days be
ftw and let another take hisoiSce." I
mean his political days, and 1 wi.-h the
Bible had said be should not be Gover
nor of Masachusetts. But as be is only
the nominee of the confederates and
they have not got .he inside track. I will
jnst leave him in the hands of the loyal
people of the State, and they will know
how much to discount him.

We visited Henry Boeck's new store a
few days ago, and were surprised at al!
the conveniences" he has fitted up for
himself, in Lis new place, the largo
brick building opposite the PostofScc.
A great, roomy cellar, gives ample
place for the storing of lumber in the
rough, bjjdstoads, common furniture,
and so on. On the first floor, from the
street, is the show room, - filled with ele
gant and useful articles, from a baby's
cradle to a complete parlor set.
Some very handsome bed room sets are
here shown, and a curious steel wire
spring mattress, lighter and easier fitted
to any bedstead, yet durable, springing
and comfortable as the be.-t old fash
ioned spring mattress.
From the rear of this floor wagons
can be loaded ai;d unloaded level with
the sales room, thus avoiding tugging
and breakages, often. Upstairs, are in-
numerable stocks of chairs, bedsteads,
and all sorts of things iu the rough, and
in "knock downs." Taken all in all,
friend Boeck has as fine a bulling for
the purpose, and as good a stock of goods,
in his line, as can be found iu Nebraska,
and his enterprise is a credit to the town
and count y. Call and examicj for your

This wonderful vegetable rcstorativo
is the .sheet-anchor of the feeble and de
bilitated. As a tonic and cordial for th.

which undermines tho bodily strength
and breaks down the animal spirits.
