The C. K. Peck touched our land

with Merchandise for the up river
towns and with difficulty got over the
bar that has formed almost across the
channel between here and the Platte.

Joe Fail field had his famous Sun
day surveying suit up, this Court.
Lawyer Wooley tried his hand (shall

but we started to tell a story. Old man
Allison was on the rack (the witness

derstand mathematics V" "Yes," says
tne old man, -I do." "How much do
you understand?" asks W. "Twice 2

During Court this term a case came
up entitled Campbell vs Sutton, forci
ble entry and detainer case. Windham
Hot plaintiff. Murfin for defendant
It had been argued before Michael Ar
cher, J. P. in Rock Bluffs and Murfin
not getting such Justice as he thought
he ought to have took seven days con
tiniiance under the Statute, went to
Lincoln and obtained a "writ of Prohi
bition" from Judge Pound.
A "writ of Prohibition is the oppo
site of a writ of Mandamus that is to
say, instead of an order from a Superior
Court to compel an inferior court or
person to porform certain acts it is an
order from the Superior Court to the
lower to prohibit it from acting for
the time being. There is an old Stat
ute it seems recognizing tins writ in
this State, but it has fallen into dis
use and many lawyers have forgotten
Armed with this instrument young
Murfin returned on trial day and be
and brother Windham worried the
Court until 4 p. m. on various motions,
legal dodges, &c Archer struck def'ts
answers out twice, and Murfin seeing
he was getting the "wust" of it pulled
out his Prohibitory document and or
dered the court to down breaks and
let off steam. Mike banked his fires,
put on his specs, 'lowed "he wouldn't
go agin Judge Pound," and dismissed
the case as far as his court was con
cerned. When they came into the
District Court VY indliam iionestiy re
lated the above facts to his honor and
when he got to tho place where they
left off below said: "And now your
honor, after arguing this case for four
hours and finding himself beaten, he
(Murfin) drew this weapon on me."
(holding up wtit of Prohibition) Af
ter the laugh had subsided a little,
Pot" got up and in his drollest man
ner propounded: "Your honor, if these
facts are true, I move that the Attorn
ey for the defendant be arrested for
carrying a concealed weapon, contrary
to law and that Attorney for plaintiff
be bound over as prosecuting witness."
His honor entertained tho motion by
an auuioie smiie, and snerin nyers
stamped his foot and shouted, "order
in the Court, or I'll have Stiles arrest
the whole bar."
Friday Evening Chancellor lair Held.
The Chancellor of our University
ectures at the M. E. Church on Fri

At the same time, we understand,
the Red Ribbon Club will bo re-organized
and several new additions in the
way of members made thereto. A full

Figures and Ciphers.
List Sunday evening the M. E.
Church was filled to overflowing by
citizens, to listen to a Lecture on "Fig
ures and Ciphers,"by Miss Lena Arm
strong. The lecturer handled her sub
ject in a masterly manner and was
listened to with rapt attention till the
'Ed. Herald: The stench from the
old slaughter house just west of Hei
sel's mill is simply horrible this warm
weather and is endangering the health
of the citizens in that vicinity. The
Board of Health should take some ac
tion immediately, looking toward the
abatement of the nuisance. It should
never have been placed in the city lim
its in the first place and all concerned
in it are deserving of censure. Y. Z.

take immediate action in this matter.

that the law. which requites saloons to close at
a certain hour at night, aud to remain closed
during the Sabbath day, has not been enforced
to my entire satisfaction during the past year.

Very Droll to Think of.
If not above being taught by a man, use Dob-
bius's Electric Soap next wash day. Uned
without any wa h boiler or rubbing board, and
used differently from any other soap ever
made. It seems very droll to think of a quiet,
orderly two hours' light work on wash day,
with no heat and no steam, or smell of the
washing through the house, instead of a long
day's hard work ; but hundreds of thousands
of women from Nova Scotia to Texas have
proved for themselves tlutt thi is done by us
ing Dobbine's Klectric Soap. Don't buy it.
however, if too set in your ways to use it ac
cording to directions, that arc as simple a to
Fcein al:iiut ridiculous and so easy that a girl
of twelve years can do a large wash without be

fabric, has been before tlie public for fifteen
years, and its sale doubles every year. If your
grocer ha not got it, he will get it. as all whole
sale grocers keep it.
