The Herald. KO. fk. ylAC4uRPHT, jiEDITOR. PLATTSMOUTU. APRIL 21, 1881. Bak Docket out this week from the Herald office. Court May 3d don't jou forget it, if jou have a case there, or are on the Jury. The Masquerade of the Odd Fellow will be a great feature of their festival the 26th. The B. & M. folks have commenced grading for a new lot of buildings and shops already. Beacoxsfield, the great Ex-Premier of England died at 5:30 Tuesday morning. So passes a great historical character from the field. They say"-the-reason lthode Island would not pass a Prohibition law was because the stata was so small most anybody could reach outside the Hnes and get a drink ai.y time, and it was no use. The Omaha Republican has sudden ly found out that the Enterprise is only an "obscure" paper here. How glibly that phrase rolls from the pen of the Metropolitan editor when Borne "country galoot" gets him in a tight place. The new Post at Weeping Water is called "Bishep Post 01" has 27 char ter members, M. F. Wait, Command er, and bids fair to have a hundred soon. They are making extensive preparations for "Decoration Day All old soldiers are requested to send their names in to one Post or the oth er. The members of the Band are try ing to raise money for building a small band house of their own and we hope the citizens will aid them sufticlenlly to make the thi'ig a success. They need the building, we need the band now and then and besides in their own building in a proper place the annoyance of practice would be less to other parties. The hunters have hunted but the game isn't counted. Jones, et al, got in with 35 ducks. Chapman, McLen nan and Bennett are over at BarMetr, water bound, don't know what they got; supposed to be millions. Mathews and O'Rourke came in from Ashland with "right smart" of game. We shall have to defer the official count until next week. The Grand Army of the Republic Post at this place met Tuesday night and had a most encouraging time. Seven new recruits were mustered in, honest farmer boys, that will stic1', and be found in their places when wanted. The new recruits were, Jo seph Voody, Calvin Bradshaw, S. P. Hollo way, Robt. Troop, Wm. P. Perdy, Wm. Dunston and J. D. Snook. A meeting is called for next Tuesday night when a number of applications are in. The floods in Dakota and above on thfi Missouri have rendered homeh-ss hundre js of people. A committee has hppn fnrmpd in Omaha, ("at the call of the Mayor and citizens) to forward aid of which Bishop Clarkson is the head. To add by our mite a Dramat ic performance is given on Friday night by our Dramatic club. Every nnp should turn out for ao laudable a purpose. Remember the distressed arid homeless and buv a ticket for "Home" before Friday. Titk Missouri is ud hich azain. it commenced rising Sunday and is now nearly as high up as the late high wa ter mark. This riBe is caused by the imnpral meltine of the snows, the r - breaking of a big gorge and the rise of tributary streams. The K. C. track is washed out again, the B. & M. north f Bellevue is under water and com munication with Omaha thereby cut off by rail again. The Elk Horn and Logan creeks are out of banks and the towns submerged along their course. The Smelting works at Omaha and the U. P. shops are also endangered the Beeond time. Tiiere isn't a city in the United States with such dirty streets and al leys as Lincoln now has. It is hoped that the city council will take sonic action in th matter Monday night. Lincoln Globe. Pshaw! You havn't been away from home lately then. Our town can discount Lincoln." Omaha can chip in on an equality and Chicago can double discount the whole caboodle. We haven't seen New York, but her pa pers declare she is in the worstest, dirtiest, abominablest state of any city yet, and it must be pretty bad when the merchants offer to raise a million of dollars to clean the streets proTided some honest nian can be found to disburse it faithfully. How Are You Mr. Wolfl South Bend, Cass Co., April 15th, Ed. Heha'ld: Mr. Kleiser and Son and hired man on Friday, dug out a den of wolves and captured seven young wolves; the eld ones got away. We had nothing to carry them home in, so Mr. Kleiser took off his over shirt and.carried them home in it. He don't intend to wear that shirt any more until after washday. Our county clerk can expect some wolves' scalps for we know where there is another den. Hank Athy. This is a good letter. -What we want is news, and this contains some. Ed. . GiTenlip by Doctors. Ms it possible that Mr. Godfrey is up and at work, and cured by so sim ple a remedy ?" "I assure you it is true that he is en tirely cured, and with nothing but ,.Hop Bitters; and only ten days ago his doctors gave him up and said he must die!" "Well-a-day! That is remarkable? I will go this day and get some for cay poor George I know hops are SWAT The Flooded Hegion. Capt. S. C. McVay, president of the First National Bank of Yankton and largely interested in the Coulson line of steamers was in the city jesteiday on his way to St. Louis to bring up two strainers, the Dakota and Mon tana, to take the place of boats that were wjecked by the ice at Yankton. Capt. McVay, in an interview with a Republican reporter, gave a thrilling account of the situation in the flooded region. He carte from Yankton to Vermillion, forty or fifty miles in a yawl boat with a crew of men, -and from Vermilliod he came to Sioux City by sleigh over eighteen inches of snow nearly all the way. arriving at Sioux City on Friday. .The immense ice gorge below Yankton remains, blocking up the river channel fr miles and miles and causing the river to flow around it and over thfwbot toms, and the ice will remain there until thawed out by the summer Sun in June, so great is its extent, solidity, and depth. The ice is piled up all over the flooded region from ten to twenty feet deep, covering farms and everything, and it will not melt in time for them to plant their crops this spring. All their houses, cattle, farm implements, etc. have been swept away, and they escaped with nothing except the clothes they had on. At Meckling. there are 72 pe. pie in an elevator, with only three days' rations and relief parties cannot get to them, the ice being blocked up around them to such an extent as to form a prison. There are between 0,000 and 7,000 that have been rendered homeless in Dakota and Northern Nebraska, and the greater number of them are being taken care of at Yankton, where all the houses have been thrown open for their reception, and the ladies are organizing relief societies and furnish ing them, with food and clothing. They are being brought in every day from the submerged districts in boats, managed by relief parties. They are being landed on the bluffs, and con veyed to YTankton in wagons. The adventures of many of the res cued parties are of the most thrilling character. All the spare yawl boats belonging to the learners at Yankton are being used in the rescue of the sufferers. Ninety-two houses were swept away from Vermillion; Elk Point was submerged, but the inliabi tants are now all returning from Fort landville, whither they fled on a rail road train. Green Island, a Nebraska town of about 100 population, oppo site Yankton, was entirely wiped out. The probability is that the channel of the river will be changed so as to leave a portion of Dakota in Nebraska owing to the ice gorge remaining so lohg. It is one vast pile of immense blocks of ice. Capt. McVay h id photographs taken of the wrecked steamers, which were crowded out of the water and landed high on top of immense piles of ice. No one cau form any adequate idea of the scenes that took place during the flood and of what yet remains to be seen in the flooded region. Rep. . To the rational being." one of the most marveious matters in the quar rel of the politicians at Washington is the logic displayed in the arguments of the opposition senators. They deny, willi unlimited emphasis, that there is a majority of senators on the gov ernment side. In support ot this denial they assert with like emphasis, that the Virginia senator is a democrat, whose vote lightly should be cast on the opposition side. In support of this assertion, they vow and declare, in very ferocious language, that Ma hone is a repudiator who is aiming to repudiate the public debt of Virginia. Now to the rational being, it seems an unavoidable conclusion from thee postulates of the opposition that thi democrat pany is a party of repudia tion. But the opposition indignantly re pel this plainly logical conclusion. They vehemently deny that they are a party of repudiators.and in support of this cite their party hostility to the Mahone party in Virginia. Further more, so implacably hostile are demo crats to repudiation and repudiators, they will never consent that a repud ating friend of the Virginia repudia tor, Mahone, shall hold an office in an American senate. Now, to the rational being, it seems an unavoida ble conclusion from these postulates that Mahone is not a democrat, that his vote should not be cast on the op position side, and that the opposition being plainly in the minority, have no valid, or even plausible excuso for ob structing the public business. It may be too much to expect that party politicians will regulate their conduct by the rules of reason. But is i too much to suggest that they should not expect to occupy both sides of the fenci at once and sit on the top rail at the same time? Chi cago Times. The following may be of some in terest to our readers: Lincoln, Neb., March 2'J, 1831. To the Holders of Bonds of School District Number One, of Lancaster County: School District Number One. of Lancasler County on the first day of September. 1871, issued its bonds, u00 in number, in the sum of 100 each. amounting to "0,0U0, under a special act of the Legislature, entitled "An act authorizing School District Num ber One, of Lancasler County, to issue bonus for the erection ol a school House, approved March 4, 1S71 1'he Supreme Court of Nebraska has decided in Dundy, vs Iticharuson County, 8 Nebraska, 508, and again in Clegg vs School District 50, Richard son County, 8 Nebraska, that a suecial act of this character was un constitutional under Section I, Article VII, of the Constitution of 1866, and the oonds invalid. This construction of the Constitution ot, Nebraska then in force, has been followed by the U. S. Circuit Court lor the District of Nebraska. The School District obtained value for the Bonds and has never repudi ated principal or interest, and there is at present no disposition on the part of our tax payers to take advantage of this decision, but the ques tionable character of the outstand iuding form of indebtedness is such that it is deemed best for the interest of the ere liters and of the District to arrange a settlement. The School District of the City of Lincoln (successor of School District No. I) lias under general law now a power to issue evidences of indebted ness to the amount, and has arranged to fund and pay off the debt. After May 1st, 1881, interest on the old in debtedness of School District Number One of Lancaster County are re quested to send them in for payment; and principal and interest to date of presentation (not later than May 1st. 1881; will be paid in full, on presenta tion of the Bonds, through the First National Bank, Lincoln, Nebraska. By order of the Board of Education of the City of Lincoln. GUY A. BROWN, O. W. Webster, President. Secretary. The River is now within an incli or so of being as high as it has been this SgXIQ&r Garfield's Defamer. THE AUTHEK OF THE CHINESE LETTER SENT TO TILE PEN. New Yokk. April 14. James O'Brien, alias Robert or Bob" Lind say, who, during the last political campaign, deposed that he knew II. L. Morey, the individual to whom it was alleged President Garlield wrote what is known as the "Morey Chinese letter," and who subsequently con fessed he perjured himself, this morn ing pleaded guilty to the indictment, for perjury presented against Uim, and was sentenced to the state prison for eight years. The Tribune says, in imposing sen tence .Tudge Cowan spoke as follows: "The case is one in which perjury was of the most dangerous character and one which affected the result of the national election. In imposing such a heavy sentence for the offense, I do it to serve as a warning to others against going upon the stand in a court of just tice and deliberately perjuring them selves where the act involves such enormous interests." Asssistant Dis trict Attorney Bell says O'Brien is n miserable, worthless fellow who would swear to anything for $5.00. And so this ends another celebrated case by sending a"miserable worthless" fellow to prison while his aiders and abettors, men in high standing and those wh would have profited by his lie are left to walk abroad as honora ble men. Curious thing justice is sometimes. Pi sin feet ants. Springtime with its genial sunshine having comu to warm up old heaps of garbage, the enquiry comes from many quarters, what are the best disinfect ants. 1 Clean fiesh lime answers a god purpose where your cellar has just been relieved from a burden of gar bage. 2. Chloride of lime answers a better purpose where you wish to dispose of noxious smells. This can Le procured from any of the drug stores in town put up in packages with directions for use. But the best absorbent and disin fectant is one which is accessible to rich and poor alike and may be had without money and without price- -is clean fresh earth. A few bushels spread over places where manure has been piled dining the winter, where slops have been thrown and in sink holes absorbs impurities and acts as a good disinfectant. The brick yard which we under stand Is to be started back of the Bonner Stable will in this way be an advantage to the neighborhood The fresh earth will absorb all the noxious gasses aristng from garbage piles which naturally gather around such institutions. The heat when the fires are burning will have a fuither ten dency to purify the atmosphere Any further inquiries will be cheer fully answered. D. W. Richmond, Chairman Boare of Health. Plattsruouth, April 20, 1831. Small Pox Scare. Last Friday a man by the name of Chas. Philbert, supposed to come from Villisca,Iowa, was found on the B. & M. train bound for Ashland. He there go! off, and his appearance attracting attention, he was examined, and the doctors pronounced him attacked by small pox. Rumor says somebody then bought him a ticket to South Bend and shipped him back; anyway, conductor Forman found him aboard near South Bend. The car he was in was speedily vacated, and the maw got off at South Bend. The citizens there heard of it, got indignant, took the man and put him aboard a grain car on the freight train for Plattsmouth The drum-head came out, and the car was side-tracked at Cedar Creek; slier iff Hyera and the Commissioners were telegraphed for, and Saturday morning the Sheriff and Dr. Schildknecht went out and found liim in a car of ties. He was finally removed to a small Louse Mult on tlie bank ol the river and nurses sent up there. The man is now dangerously in with a square case of small pox. This is the story as it comes to us; of course there is much rumour of other detail; but this is about all that is positive. Somebody is greatly to blame for shipping such a man about at such risk to the community, and whoever helped it should be punished by law severely. Small pox is reported at Pacific Junction.

How Hiippiupss is Secured. Happiness is the absence of pajn or annoyance, and wherever there is pain there is disease. A pain m the lower portion of the body indicated a disor der of some kind. If there is any odor or color ordeposit in the urine, it means disease, and requires attention at once e have heard many of our friends speak of the remarkable power of arner s Safe Kidney and Liver Cure and are convinced there is nothing so certain and valuable for all disorders of the urinary system, both male and female 4TU3 The New Council at TTork.

Temperance ia Plattsmouth. Our "Prospect ua" in last New Year's issue (speaking after the manuei of editors) sets loith the ides that' we shall during the year endeavor to chronicle 'the work of the Reformer, and the work of the Destroyer." Poorly have we fulfilled our pledge for the reason that the work or the former has been char acterized by an apathy and indiff erence of which we were ashamed; w hile heartsick, we have tried to shut our eves to the fact that our oppon ents, ever active and "alert, were re gaining most of what they had lost in the early winter's campaign. Why is this? .For there must be a mason. Do we not find it mainly in. the fact that we have depended almost en tirely on others to do the work for us which we ought to do ourselves While listening to the unanswerable logic of Finch, the stirring, sympa thetic appeals of Woodford, the magic eloquence of Bain, rising with them to the "fever heal'' of enthusiasm, we stood ready to do or dare anything for the space of a week or two then with astonishing rapidity our ardor cooled down to a very low "temper ate." Far back in early school daj we used to read of a farmer Wi o one morning bid his son call upon their neighors to aid in reaping a field of ripened giain. But the second morn ing the grain still waved in the bright sunshine, and the disappointed farmer sent his son to call upon uncles and cousins for the help iieighbui-4 had withheld. And still the mother bird whose home w as hidden among the tall grain, quieted her nestlings with the assurance that there was no dan ger yet. But when on tho third morn ing, father and sou met and discussed the situation, the wise little mother, pluming her wings for flight, said "now we must indeed be going, for when a man determines to do his work himself, rest assurel it will be done.' Looking at the course we have pur sued in a pecuniary point of view, is it in accordance with the wisdom of this world, is it as you do in other things, business men, to invest hun dieds of dollars, then, make no repairs, collect no revenue, expect no returns? A General of the olden time looking out upon a beleaguering army which with waving banners and stirring music was rapidly advancing upon him, suddenly cried to his weary de spairing Soldiers, "Forward, the victory is ours, the spears of the enemy are not in line". And the mighty host fled before the disciplined attack of the few who fought as one man. We are not braced shoulder to shoulder, fight ing as one man ; while our foes with closed ranks as they look out upon our disunited wavering columns exult that our "spear3 are not in line". In this, -we believe is found another rea son for our lack of success. Temperance men and women, let us not sit dawn, fold our hands and, without a blow, give up our city to the foe of our homes and firesides. Theie are wives and mothers here from whose tortured hearts comes an appeal that we cannot withstand. Our own homes demand protection. We. the W. C. T. U. of Flaitsuiouth. not that we have been any more vigil ant than otheis, but because God has endowed us with stronger sympathies for the suffering, call upon you now, to arm for this conflict. We call upon the Red Ribbon club the grand Infantry of the. temperance army to re-organize its scattered forces; upon the Templars of Honor and Good Tem plars, our Artillery and Cavalry, who alone have kept in marching order; upon the joint Committee, our Coun cil of War; upon the children from whose ranks our own are to be re cruited; upon the ministers of our churches, ever on the side of right also to aid u; from the pulpit and through the press. But think not because the reveille sounds from woman's lips, that we aspire to lead in the fight. Nt, we we will bring up tho reserves drill the recruiis,- act as nurses, sutlers, any thing to aid in the accomplishment of the end to be attained. Though not yet armed with the panoply of prohibition, let us with the legalized weapons which our leg islature has placed in our hands. pres3 steadily forward, our own bioad ban ner of Total Abstinence floating over us; our ' battle cry "Death to the traffic;" and if fall we must, let it not be, hiding . behind oar defences, but where brave men fall? the ranks.

Letters from Paris state that young firls and very young married ladies aro eginning to wear, for evening dresses, corsages a la Yicrr;c, that is, round waists, confined by a sash tied behind not in tho middle, but on one ' side.

The usual mode of propagation is from eu'.tiairs similarly to the currant. irrapevine, or any other plant.

Allow the main stems or framework to prolong themselves undisturbed while the side branches are kept short m the manner above indicated, in order to keep the bushes open aud free to admit light and air. The goo-cberry is very subject to mildew; to guard against this, open culture is essential. As a remedy for mildew use the following: Take 0110 quart of hard-wood ashes : put them in a vessel holding five gallons; pour three gallons of boiling water over them and stir a few moments j then fill the vessel with cold water ; use as hot as the hand can bear without scalding. Ti row tho hot liquid forcibly into the bush with a erarucn. f vrmgo, drenching every leaf. both upper a:il lower .-id.-; early in the morning, while tho ue'.v is vet on. Is the best time to do this. Commence when tho fruit is first formed and continue from time to time as signs of mildew appear. Tho ground should be kept clear of weeds and well cu.tivated, and after c.-niing into bearing be well mulched. Dr. Wi'm, the clever physician wM married a princess of Wurtemberg last year, much to the disgust or her noble relatives is s aid to have made her very l.iiunv. lie has a creat practice at Breslau. and his accomplished wife aids him in the ca. e of those of his patients. who .aro too poor to procure tho necea; sary renicd e.-. Ec'; Tinn for Cutting Grafts. In several publications wo notice that the cut.i;i' t' grafts in the Fall "or bo- fore tho s..aneoldof Winter injures their vitality, ' hig dv recommended. Directions are thus aveti how the- are to Le pre.-ervctl ihioogii the Winter; They m:y be packed away in boxes of line damp i;:o-;, dam 1 s 1 v lust, or lm- ri in the earth or sand." Tiiero is a great deal more added which we do not think worth wnilc to quote, litis mode may be a ver cood one, but we have never tried it and just now do not seem in the mood not to do so. We have done most of our own grafting, and have been suceissful. We never cut our crafts before February, and if the ground is not frozen stick them in at the foot of the tree, theu the variety is known without labeling. If the ground is frozen tl.ev arc tied up, the bunch labeled and burled in the ground uuder ashed or in a rather dry place. We have s t seventy of these grafts (pears) at one time and every one t f them crew. Once on a time we employed a professed grafter, who brought ins own .scions (cherries) and set thirty-two for us, everv one of which died, The follow ing Spring we thought to try -our own hand at it, and set s x'ee:i (cherries) on the same tive wmch lias been tifteen years planted, the grafts cut as usual in February, and eleven of them grew. This we thought was doing pretty well with cherries. If the grafts are care fully preserved and properly set. it makes no difference whether cut in Fall or Spring. Cherry grafts, however, should be always cut before the buds show any sign of swelling. German' town I'elegrapfi. prof. Charles Eliot Norton, president of the Archaeological institute of Ameri ca, denies a report that the work of that institute in Crete has been ''nipped in the bud." Prof. Norton says that the prospect of a speedy beginning cf work is gcod, and only recently at tne re quest of Mr. Stiilman, tho agent m Crete, a competent a-ssistant was sent , out to aid him ia his investigations. r r'-- --iirf 11" rr fiin - -- - ' ""3 .O. b JOHNSON, DEAl.IiK IN Drugs, Medicines AXI) WALL All Paper Trimmed Free of Charge.
