who appeared in our midst last winter

Sunday, May 9th, ,180, by the Rev.
Mr. Baird. Mr. J. T. Marshall to Miss
L. M. Smith.
The groom is a son of Jno. Marshall
of Weeping Water, and the bride, a
daughter of C. P. Smith of this place.
They kindly remembered the Herald
and looked so happy as they rode off
in the buggy that we had a notion to
start out for a license and get married
- We hope the matrimonial felicity of
our young friends will never peg out,
but last awl through to. the end, and
when father Time finally trees them
out, may their good works be upper
most, and the fact that they have
stitched along through life be not
their sole consolation.
When Frank Carruth began dig
ging the cellar for his new building, a
big crowd gathered round, and every
other one would ask some question or
other about it. Frank got tired of this
aud stuck up a "boord" with this in
"This cellar will be eleven feet deep;
two-stery brick building; concrete
foundation; glass front; tin roof, and
covered with a mortgage. JSFFer fur

hair, called in on Tuesday and says:
"Mr. Carruth in?" "Yes," shouted
FranK from" the back room, "and
busy; what yon want?" "I called in,"
drawled the stranger, to ask about that
mortgage. Does it keep a tin roof from
rusting, stop the wind from ripping it
up, or make it quit leaking every oth

tects the roof entirely from the in
clemency of the weather and the rapa

In mentioning the fact of the estab
lishment of a Post of the Grand Ar
my of the Republic in this city lately
we forgot to say it "was called "John
McConihie, Post No. 45," and is named
after a former weir known citizen of
Xebraska, who was private Sec'y' o
the late Governor Samuel Black, just
before the advent of Ex-Governor
Saunders to this territory. Jrhn Mc
Conihie raised Company' "G the
old "First Xebraska," was wounded
seriously at ShiToh, where he behaved
withgreat gallantry,' and was after
wards given command of a Uenssellaer
County Regiment, in Xew York, at tho
head of which, while charging; the
rebel works at Petersburg, he was shot
through the brain, being thus killed in
battle, defending his country's". flag.
Ills old employer Gov.' Sam'l Black,
was also killed in battle -at . the head
of a Pennsylvania Regiment." We give
this brief and imperfect sketch because
the name we have given our Post in
future years.; will have a historical
significance nnd because it will .grati
fy, many of McConihie's old comrades
to realize that his memory is cherish
ed among those who knew him at
the camp-fire and in the smoke and

"Our Goblins," a crispy, breezy ex
travaganza from the pen of Mr. Wil
liam Gill was produced at the Opera
house last evening by Gill & Fillings'
operetta- company. The audience,
though moderate, was appreciative
and testified their pleasure by bursts
of applause, amounting to an encore.
The plot, or rather idea, of the sketch
is pleasing, affording abundant oppor
tunity for good acting. Miss Deeriug
excels in actinjr. and Miss Kent as a
vocalist. The same can be said of the
male performers. Mr. Gill, in his pre
sentation of the part of Cobb fully
sustains his character as an actor of
decided merit, and furnishes addition
al proof of the talent he possesses
The piece is fashioned after Xate
Saulisburv's Troubadours, and not
withstanding some orchestral crudi
ties affords an evening's entertainment
not often enjoyed. The burlesque
was preceded by Hiram Stell, another
production of Mr. Gill, racy and laugh
ter-provoking. The same will be giv
en this evening, and deserves a liber
al patronage. Dubuque Herald, Dec.2
The above company will appear at
Fitgerald Hall, Saturday evening.
Chancellor Fail field's lecture on
Temperance, delivered last I riday ev
ening, under the auspices of the Red
Ribbon club, was only tolerably well
attended; in fact, the audience had to
spread out pretty well to make the M.
E. church look at all filled. At this we
were rather surprised, as we imagined
that the first address given in Platts
mouth by the Chancellor of our State
University, would have called out an
audience, irrespective of the subject,
but we believe some misunderstanding
in regard to the time, or an insufficient
advertising, was partly the cause.
The Chancellor's handling of the
subject was somewhat out of the usu
al routine. He described the three
kinds of laws upon our statute
books mandatory, regulatory, pro
hibitory. We regulate what is a bless
ing to the public so regulated; wo pro
hibit what is an unmitigated evil. A
law to regulate horse-stealing, thiev
ing, murder, etc., would bo an absurdi
ty, why not equally so a law regulating
the unmitigated evil of drinking?
The Chancellor's manner is pleasant.
free from bitter attacks, and his efforts
in the cause induced by a deep-seated
conviction of the dark evils worked by
intemperance. We trust a future lec
ture from him may call out a larger
Messrs. A. M. & C. M. Holmes have
imported a very Tiandsom Clyde
Horse, a description of which can be
found on the bills lately printed at the
Herald office. He is a magnificent
bay, four years old, as tractable and
kind as a kitten and is certainly a
beautiful and valuable animal.
The Holmes' also have the Grey
Cleveland ai;d Xorman horse this
year. Two better horses can seldom
bo seen in one stable. This is not a
paid puff we want you to understand,
we consider both horses valuable to
the County and of great use to farmers
that desire to breed that kind of horse.
We call the attention of our readers
to the advertisement of the Hills Ar
chimedean Lawn Mower Co., of Hart-'
ford, Conn., in another column. They
claim to have the best Lawn Mowers
in the market, and their claim is not
disputed. We are about to purchase
one for ourselves, and if any of our
patrons should be desirous of seeing it
in use or of personally testing its mer
its and finding out how easy it runs,
and how nicely and evenly it finishes
its work, we invite them over to try
on our lawn any evening.

18G5 she was married to A. C.
Makin, also a well known and
early settler in the County, and
one of the oldest route agents in
U. S. Mail Service in the west.
The death of Mrs. McMakin was
very sudden, being caused by Rheu

children, girls aged seven and elevon
years. Many, many sympathizing

From the Sturgis, Mich., Weekly:
Mr. John Brast, living in Sherman
township, informed us a few days ago
that his feet had been so terribly fro.t
bitten that he could hardly stand the
pf ins caused thereby. He happened to
think of St. Jacobs Oil, which he al
wajs keeps handy, rubbed his feet
twice with the remedy, and the pain
disappeared entirely. He not only val
ues St. Jacobs Oil as an unexcelled
remedy for a great many other pain
ful diseases, to which mankind is sub
ject, but he also asserts that it is real
ly invaluable for the many diseases
horses and stock are subject to, and
which so often play sad havoc with
the prospects of the farmer and stock
