An Old Lady's Trick.
Sheriff R. W. Hyer's, of Cass county,
was in this city this morning looking
after an old lady, some fifty years old
by the name of Elizabeth Hickman
who is charged with having fleeced
some of the Plattsmouth people to the
tune of S190.00. Mrs. Hickman has
been runing a farm for the past year
about 2V miles from the county
seat. One day last week it is charged
that she unlawfully did get S100 from
one Fred Gorder, a grain merchant of
Plattsmouth, as an advance en some
corn she said she had. It is also said
that she played the same game on
another party to the tune of S90. It
now seems that the old lady with her
children, and household effects left
Plattsmouth last Sunday morning,
taking her horses and worldly effects
with her, and leaving behind no show
ing of the corn she said she had. The
sheriff ha3 tracked her thus far, but
here he is at present unable to find any
further tracks of her. She is said to
be a cripple. Neb. City News.

Miss Bertha Norris who met and ex
posed Miss Miller, the Memphis, Tenn
Medium in her Spirit Bride Seances, at
Fitzgerald Hall, Friday evening.
A little girl, resident in Platts
mouth, aged between two and three
years went to church for the first time
with her grandmother not long since.
A short time previous she had been
much interested in the pranks of a mon
key which was exhibited on the streets
by a man with a hand organ. She sat
very quietly in church until the organ
sounded forth its strains, when she
leaned over to Grandma and inquired,
"Grandma, where's the monkey?" We
didn't hear whether she was answered
or not.

John Fitzgerald has sued the City
for his warrants 3,000 worth. It
seems some time ago Fitzgerald had
received and gathered about $3,000
worth of ordinary city warrants. In
one of the spasms of virtue and econ
omy which visits this town semi-occa
sionally the Council thought they
could save money (and do justice, we
suppose,) by funding all the outstand
ing indebtedness of the city, warrants
and all. Fitzgerald handed over, at
the city's request, $3,000 of warrants
and received the equivalent in "fund
ing bonds." The other day the Su
preme Court said the funding bonds
were illegal, being issued in excess of
the 20 per cent, valuation of property
allowed by law. So Fitz. is out unless
he can make the city return his war
rants, for which he now prays, &c.
Sam. M. Chapman i3 his attorney and
has prepared a brief that's full of fund
ed wisdom about this matter.
Prof. Cooke.
On Friday evening next, Prof. Cooke,
the renowned exposer of Spiritualism,
will appear at Fitzgerald Hall, ably as
sisted by Miss Selome Crawford in her
wonderful mind reading, second sight
and clarivoyant tests, in which ques
tions secretly written by any in the
audience, instantly destroyed or con
cealed, will receive intelligent answers.
Also Miss Bertha Norris who met and
exposed Mrs. Miller, the (Memphis
Tenn.) medium in her Spiiit Bride Se
ance. The Press throughout tho coun
try are loud in their praise of his per
formances. He appeared at Lincoln
Nov. 20 and 21, and the Lincoln Jour
nal in a column notice each day pro
nounced his entertainment the best of
the kind ever given in Lincoln. We
clip the following from the St. Louis
Republican of recent date:
The Olympic theatre this week is the
scene of one of the most enjoyable en
tertainments the season has produced.
Mr. Cooke comes out with the some
what novel title of an exposer of spir
itualistic trick?, and backs up the asser
tion with as complete and astonishing
an exhibition as lias ever been shown
to the public. The second-sight busi
ness, the clarivoyant test and spirit
bride levee, by Miss Crawford and Miss
Cooke, are quite as wonderful and
could be described in columns. The
Professor has a quiet and irresistably
droll way upon the stage, and luckless
he who provokes the current of his
fun ; for the entertainment is as condu
cive to humor as it is creative of won
der. It is worthy all that can be said
in its praise.

An Astonishiug Fact.
A large proportion of the American
people are to-day dying from the ef
fects of Dyspepsia or disordered liver.
The result of these diseases upon the
masses of intelligent and valuable peo
ple is most alarming, making life ac
tually a burden instead of a pleasant
existence of enjoyment and usefulness
as it ought to be. There is no good
reason for this, if vou will only throwr
aside prejudice and skepticism, take
the advice of Druggists and your
friends, and try one bottle of Greens
August Flower, lour speedy relief
is certain. Millions of bottles of this
medicine have been given away to try
its virtues, with satisfactory results in
every case, lou can buy a sample
bottle for 10 cents to try. Three doses
will relieve the worst case. Positively
sold by all Druggists on the western

A (j! en tic 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 colds, 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 largo 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
thi b continent. Sample bottles for tri
al, 10c; regularsize, 75c.
