THE FIKST "ASSEMBLY" OF M;JJUASKA, HELD AT OMAHA IN 1S55.
We hereiy append a list of the officers and members of the first Terri
torial Assc-mblj of Nebraska, with the ages and politics of the members,
(Democrats in reman. VIiig3 in italic.) etc. Tt is takeu from an original pa
per furnished us by the Hon. S. F. Burtch, of Sarpy, now a niembev of the
House and then a clerk. It. looks strange to read of the men whom we aro
accustomed to think of as aged men as bein then 24 and C3 years old. Then,
th8 "present residence" of a number of these members is a curiosity. The
facts are tli at ra;st of them lived in Iowa, but they have made a SUte of
The old settlers here will recognize a good many familiar names, some
gone long ago. Tlie Bradford in the Senate was Dr. Bradford 110 at Rock

American Life aot Stnpid.
Who saj-s the American life is stu
pid, that it is utterly devoid of the ele
ments of romance, and that it is its
commonplace aa a plank road or a jrrain
elevator Y On a sins'lo psn of a Wcst
tei n exchange there i3 enough raw ma
terial to 6tock a dozen sensational nov
veis. Here is the cheeked life of an
enamored gardener, in Denver, who
lfter being deceived by Lh wife in
California and rejected bv another wo
man, turned hermit an I took to liquor
and tinaliy to strychnine. Here is a
beautiful young Mormon lass working
in a hair store at, talt Lake, who falls
in love witli her Gentile employer, Ir.ui
her Du e slaped bv her .Mormon broth
er, and finally elopes with the young
in. in. Here is a railroad oiHtlal 111
Kansas City, whose wife flirted with
1 he imss of a shirt, factory; tho husband
was jealous and indignant: the wife
made a scene; the shirt factor left
town; the wife coaxed her husband!
to go East, find work, and build a home '
for her; while he was out of town the I
wayward, wilful lady took a lawyer
into her confidence, and obtained a di
vorce; and now the shirt factor is in
imminent danger of being either killed
or married. Here is th . desperate '
deed of a Mexican assassin, near Pue
blo. Colorado, who "kills a ranchman,
his wife, and his married daughter.
Here is a soldier in Wheeling, West j
Virginia, who sues out a writ of habe-,
as corpus for the remains of his sister,
a nun, in order to bury them where he
pleases and not where the bishop savs
they must lie. "Whoever savs thi3 is a
dull country would better subscribe
for a Western paper.
When trade grew slack and notes
fell due, the merchant's face grew lon'
and blue; his dreams were troubled
through the niht whh sheriff's bailiff's
all in sight. -At last his wife unto him
said, "Iiiso np-at once get out of bed
and get your p:per, ink, and pen, and
say these words unto all men; My
goods I wish toseii to you, and to vour
wives and daughters,' too; my prices :
are so very low that a!l will buv be-'
fore they go.'" He did as bv his wife 1
IVllv till I tv' -AX Vltlt Cl KJ II in H lit I
advised, and in the papers advertised, f
rmwrt. fmA and lnAt f m . wi . i
his notes were paid. Id s dreams were j
glad; and he will tell j-ou to this day
how well did printer s ink repay. lie
told us, with a knowing wink, how he
was saved by printer s Ink.

A Historical Pair of Scisnrs.
Among the relics loaned to the Old
Sm.h Exhibition by the town of Con
cord are a pair of scissors, of which the
following iiiteres.ing story is tol l: A
young English stall odiciu- was frequent
ly sent to Concord to tlie house of 'Jo!.
James Barrett, on busiues conn cied
wiili the Commissary Di'pariuien'.an'l.
while, waiting for a iep!y, would amuse
hiiusel by talking loyalty wkh Jam 's
Barrett's oldest daugh er, Millic-en , t
hear her rebel replies. He aske.l her
what they should, do if it shou.d be
come necessary for the colonies to re
sist, as there was not a person that ev
en I:nev how to make cartridges. She
replied that they would use their powder-horns
and bullet3 just ts they shot
bears. That," said the young man,
would be too barbarous. Give ma a
piece of pine and I will show you how."
After whittling the stick to the proper
form, he took these scissors and cut the
paper for tho pattern cartridge. The
sequel shows how apt a scholar she
wtts, for all the cartridges were made
under her superintendence by the wo
men of Concord, her only male assist
ant being her younger brother, th late
Major J.-ims Barrett, who drove the
last load of enr ridges from the house
after the British came in sight, on the
13. h of April, 1 77.1. There is also on
exhibition a livmn book, which was

Dear IltatALD. I would be pleased
to send sx few lines to your "Letter
Box." And I'm sure you would not
object to receiving a letter from the
"Old Normal." I live in Casj County,
but am attending the Normal .School.
I read tlie Herald every week. I am
going to tell you how v,e celebrated
Washington's Birthday. Oiir kind
teacher could not think of having us
seltle down to hard sfuJv ou that day.
We must celebrate it in some way. in
honor of him who was "First in War
First in Peace, and First in the Hearts
of His Countrymen."
Wo met in tlie Nornuil Hall at niuo
o'clock a. 111., to listen to tlie toasts that
were to be given by different members
of the faculty, and a -number of the
students, also to the singing which had
been prepared for the occasion. First
011 programme was u song and chorus,
after which our kk:J princip ), Dr. Ca
ry, addressed us. Next was a song
(trio) by Miss Grace Wilbur, Miss JSila
Logan aud Miss Ida Denisou. the song
was beautiful and well sung.
Mr. L. A. Bater then delivered an
oration (viz.) "The Centennial Bells.'?
And now for the toasts.. The lirst
one by Mr. Wake Blackburn, to tho
Common bchools of the State. Profess
or MeKenzie responded to him.
Second toast delivered by Mis3 Anna
Taggart. to the Press, response by Air.
A. C. Troup. Miss L. A.M. Baine then

Bedsteads should be taken, down dur

well rubbed in cvui-y spot and crevice
with kerosene oil. Bed-room closets
and bureau drawers should also un
dergo the same manipulation, and, in
addition, should have borax sprinkled
over the shelves, and in tha corners,
which should afterwards be covered
with elaii brown paper. This process,
well attended to, will save work and

chine bor-ix is the magic, word.. This
article refined is liberally used as ;i
powder instead of soda, iu the propor
tion of a large handful to about ten
gallons of boiling water. Cambrics
and laces require a somewhat stronger
solution. Jn addition to other advan
tages, a saving of one-half the soap is
thus reeured. The use of aoda for
washing linen is very injurious to the
tissue, and imparls to it a yellow col
or. In Germany nnd Belgium, the fol
lowing mixture is now extensively
used; two pounds of soap are dissolved
in five gallons of water as hot as tho
hand can bear it; then next is added
to this fluid three large sized table
spoons of ammonia and one spoonful of
best oil or turpentine. ' These fluids aro
incorporated rapidly, by means of beat
ing together with a small birch broom.
The linen is then soaked in this liquid,
for three hours, care being taken to
close the washing tub by a closely fit
ting wooden cover. By this means the
linen is thoroughly cleansed, saving '
much rubbing, lime and fuel. Ammo
nia does not affect the linen or woolen
'goods, and is largely used as a liquor
