Letter From LouisTille.
Louisville, Feb. 23.
Ed. Herald. Since my last we
have enjoyed and still enjoy a spell of
rood weather, steady and dry, and mud
is a thing of the past. This state of el
ements is very favorable to business,
and people generally have improved it.
The young men and maidens here are
not backward in a social sense at all,
this was fully demonstrated last Fri
day evening, at a sociable held at Mr.
Ferguson's. The attendance was com
plete, and merriment was the order of
the evening. The baskets bounteous
store wa3 spread, after which music
and singin'g made glad the hearts of
all, and in the wee small hovtrs they
took their departure, with the feeliugi
that it was good to be there.
.A series of sociables which should
be in part a mite society, was organiz
ed that evening, the object being the
purchase of a bell for the new church,
may the good work never cease.
Itev. Gates of Omaha occupied the
pulpit of the Congregational Church

supper unto the sons .and daughters of
Zion." Seven persons were admitted its
members Sunday morning, which
makes a membership of fourteen.

Ed. Herald: Knowing you are al
ways ready to receive all items of news
from these parts, I take the liberty to
write you in regard to a grand concert,
given at the M. E. Church, last Wednes
day evening, by l'roTessor T. L. Potter
and the M. E. C. Choir, assisted by the
j Orchestra and that wonderful organ
j manufactured by Mason & Hamlin,
they all say that iU music was just
1()Vt.!y, and the oi ganist savs it is the

j bt'st instrument ever brougnt to tins

execution and hnaneially. As a musi-

The Arrest of Mr. John J. Moore
Harmon and others.
Fremont is gaining a considerable no
toriety in matteis criminal, and the
latest thing in that line is the arrest of
J. J. Moore on the charge of grand
larceny and L. J. Harmdft as an accom-
plice to the crime.
In August. 1877, a robbery was com
mitted on the mail line of the Uhion
Pacific railroad. It was done by some
one who had access to the registry de
partment. The amount of money ta
ken is not exactly known, but is sup
posed to be somewhere between S10,
000 and 30,000. In the amount stolen
there wms known to be the sum of 85,
000 in S3 notes on the Bank of Mon
treal, Canada, running from number
142,000 to number 143,000. This mon
ey was sent by Bell & Smithers, New
York agents of the bank, to a gentle
man at J; ort Uenton. Montana.
His story of the affair, as reported in
the Chicago Tribune is this:
The money which was the cause of
the trouble was brought into my place
by a man who wanted to make a trade
for some goods. The goods were dia
monds and watches. The amount of
the trade was S3.500. When the man
came to pay me I was afraid of the
notes, because I wasn't used to them.
They were new, done up in packages of
S-100. There had been so much talk
about forgeries and counterfeiting that
1 was not sure that this tnouey might
not be wrong somehow, bo I went with
it to a bank and asksd them if it was
good, and they said they thought it was
not. Then I went to the International
Bank and showed it to them, and they
said they were not sure, but they
would send it over to the bank of Mon
treal and mid out, and the next thing 1
knew I was in charge
Do you know how the money came
into the hands of the man you got it
'No ; but I understand it was some
sort of transation with gamblers,
some sort of gambling or bunko deal.'
Dp you know the man who made
the trade with you for the goods?'
No; I don't know who he wa3. He
was introduced to me by other parties.
You had no idea that there was any
thing wrong with the money?
'No more than that I was afraid it
might hava been a forgery.'
To continue the story locally, John
ny Moore was arressed at Riverside on
Tuesday last. Frank Harmon, the sou
of L. A. Harmon, was telegraphed to
tell Johnny to meet his father at that
place, it being the meeting point for
the two U. P. passenger Trains. The
name of L. A. Harmon was signed to
the telegram. Innocently enough
Johnny obeyed the summons, and
when he entered the car at Riverside
was much overjoyed to see his friend
Harmon, toward whom he extended
his hand with a hearty 'Hello, Lime!'
A gentleman named Spurling, a spe
cial service officer, seated near Har
mon looked quietly up then and said
'How are you, Johnny?' Johnny knew
the game was up.
Harmon and Moore were taken to
Laramie, where they waived examina
tion Moore was admitted to bail of
$10,000, but being unable to procure
that bail was committed to jail.
Moore has a wife in this city who is
a pleasant little lady. She is terribly
grief-stricken and humiliated by the
disgrace of her husband. Fremont
Professor Silliman has stated that
"lightning rods cannot be relied upon
unless they reach the earth, where it is
permanently wet, even in timos of the
severest drought, and the best security
is offered by carrying the rod, or some
good metallic conductor, which is duly
connected with it to the water in the
well, or to some other body of water
that never fail."

A Gentle Hint.
In our style of climate, with its sud
den changes of temperature, rain,
wind and? sunshine often intermingled
in a single day, it is no wonder that
our children, friends and relatives are
so frequently taken from us by neglect
ed colus, half the deaths resulting di
rectly from this cause. A bottle of
Boschee's German Syrup kept about
your home for immediate use will pre
vent serious sickness, a large doctor's
bill, and perhaps death, by the use of
three or four doses. For curing Con
sumption, Hemorrhages, Pneumonia,
Severe Coughs, Croup or any other di
sease of the Throat or Lungs, its suc
cess is simply wonderful, as your drug
gist will tell you. German Syrup is
now sold in every town and village on
this continent. Sample bottles for tri
