Plattsmouth is getting to be a
great newspaper centre, it would
seem. The Omaha Herald, aud the
Lincoln Democrat both devote nearly
a column to our supposed political af

as to the writer, soma of 'em ought to
go to guessing school a while.

The first of June 1S31 makes a new
era in the History of Nebraska, so rad
ical changes in so many directions sel
dom taking place in the laws of a
state at the same time.
First the Slocumb bill changes the
manner of selling liquors materially
Saloon keepers are put under a strong
bond, and are responsible for all dam
ages from drunkeness. All screens
and painted windows are to be abol
ished. Liquor can be examined for
poisons at any time, objections can be
filed to a continuance of license, &c.
The anti-treatiug law prevents "ask
ing 'em up to take suthin'." Druggists
must keep a registry book, in which
all liquors sold must be accounted for,
whom sold to, what for, when and
how much, and twice a year the record
mnst be filed with the Co. Clerk.
All practising Physicians must be
registred in the Co. Clerk's office with
date of practice &c.
The Doaue railroad law goes into
effect. No rebates are allowed, no dis
criminations and a mileage rate will
be enforced, which it is claimed will
increase the cost of transportation
from all points in Neb. to the Mo.
river aud consequently east.
We believe a fine of S10 can' lie col
lected for saying "hardly ever" threw
times or if this is not correct it ought
to be law as much as some of the
above. Next thing we know, if this
works well the 1st of June will be
made a state Holiday, same as Arbor
day. Decoration day, Fourth of July
and so on.
Our Saloon keepers have prepared
to obey the law, screens all down but
the bars are moved way back to the
rear, and if the window is dirty you
can't see back any way.

Ed. Herald: Having formed
friendly ties for the Herald, its Ed
itor and many of its readers, aud now
a citizen of Omaha we propose to get
a few Omaha items for the IIearld,
that all its readers may learn what
Omaha is doing. Of coutse, the
Omaha papers .go all through the
country, yet many Herald readers,
no doubt, are without them.
Everybody ought to know that
Omaha is a city and not a state, as the
English woman took Pennsylvania
for a city .when asking an American
of its size; of course the joke came in
on the State and not on the woman
nor her Nationality.
Omaha is the largest city in Ne
braska, boasting of its 30,000 inhabi
tants in round numbers, putting on
the most prodigious airs of any city
west of the Missouri river. . Takes
prestige for location, surroundings
and enterprise. These features are
particularly emphasized through R. R.
companies in their circulars to foreign
countries. Omaha is swimming in
Her building boom is immense in
the way of business blocks and pala
tial resiliences: a $150,000 court house
of stone and iron; a hotel larger than
the Grand Central located on the cor
ner of Dvuglas and 13th streets, about
two hundred feet square, five stories
high, to cost near $300,00.
Boyd's Opera House, now under
way, will excel anything west of Chi
cago for seating capacity, and archi
tectural beauty; and many other
fine buildings are now under headway.
Thirty-three miles of water pipe
are being put down through th prin
cipal treets, for city, public, and pri
vate purposes; about 400 men are em
ployed in this enterprise, wages run
ning from $1.50 up to fair wages for
skilled labor, which is four to five dol
lars a day.
A system of sewerage is being acted
upon, aud a vote to be taken by the
city on the 31st. iust., for bonds to
the amount of $300,000, to build the
much needed sewers.
Great preparations have bevn made
for the Ssengerfest, which is to com
mence June 8th, continuing five
days. Doubtless, many Plattsmouth
folks will visit our city on that occa
sion, as well as hunureds from other
cities. It is a German jouhcation. that
will embody many phases of history.

A Letter from Georgic.
Helena, Montanna, May 25, 1SS1.
Ed. Herald: I have just written
a letter to sister about our journev
papa says that I must copy it for the
Herald, that he wiil be responsible
for all mistakes. You know we left
Plattsmouth Saturday morning; left
Omaha on time 1:15 in sleeping car
"Silver City . We had a delightful
trip to (Jueyeniie uy Sunday noon.
Here some of our sleeping car friends
wens south to Denver, while we
pushed on west. At a point about
eight miles east of Sherman near the
summit of the Rockies, we saw Pike s
Peak, 150 miles distant; how is that
for high; I mean the peak not the
peek. At summit 8242 ft above the
level of the sea. All the passengers,
who as papa said, had any high as
pirations and could breath well, got
off and emptied their lungs for pure
air and their pocketbooks for poor
specimens. Wtst of Laramie about 5
p. m. wo saw antelope till one couldn't
rest runniug to the cr window to
look out. Monday morning, at Rock
Springs, M. T. we saw the coal mines
which tupply the Union Pacific R. R.
and the towns on their line with fuel.
At Granger, a town named after a
farmer friend of the road, situated
iif;r old Ft. Bridger we saw where
the U. P. were building a new broad
guage road in a northwesterly course
through Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon,
to the Pacific Ocean. After dinner
at Evauston. we crossed the western
boundary of Wyoming and entered
the land of the Mormon, Utah. Papa
and I sat on the rear platform during
our ride down Echo and Weber Can
ons. Papa -held the ladies on and
told them all about the wild scenery:
the place where the big and little
devils used to slide down hill in the
good Id days when there was no
Beecher to deny their existence; told
them how the 1000 mile tree happened
to grow just one thousand miles to an
inch west of Omaha, and how the
Railroad company had to wind around
hills and curve around fiats to prove to
the inquiring world that Omaha was
just one thousand miles from a cer
tain pine tree.
A good story is told of a
Boston lady who, on seeing the
sign hanging from this tree, cried out
to a gentleman passenger: "Thousand
mile tree! what does that mean? a
thousand miles high?" "No," an
swered th gentleman, quietly, "it
means one thousand miles around."
"Oh yesl" and she seemed happy,
though a long way from home. I al
most forgot to mention that papa suc
ceeded in holding the ladies on.
though it was tight work, "you bet".
I felt pretty proud when I heard the
ladies thank him and tell him how
grateful they felt.

It is pitiful to witness tho condition
of tho sun. The great fire-ball is in
intense commotion. His surface is
seamed and scarred in every direction,
with block spots that indicate the dis
turbing elements at work in his chaotio
mass. Occasionally, for a day or two,,
tho blemishes disappear, and the glor
ious king of day snows a faco liko a
shield oFglowing gold. But tho aspect
quickly changes; spots come rushing in
all directions and assuming all forms.
They appear singly and in pairs, and
again in groups and rows. Immense
groups break up into small ones, and
small onesjunito to form great chasms,
into which half a dozen worlds might
be dropped ad there would still bo
room for more. Sometimes the spots
are visible to the naked eye, and at
that time a good opera glas3 or a spy
glass will make them easily perceptible.
Hundreds of observers all r oyer thq
world watch the suns face eve"ry'cleaf .
day, and keep a record of the number
of spots, their size, and the direction in
which they move, for as the sun turns
on his axis they turn with him, some of
them remaing for months without much
change, some taking on new forms ani
some disappearing entirely. Very littlo
is known of this mysterious sun or tho
spots that are visible more than ninety
millions of miles away.
Once in about eleven years the sun
takes on his present sun-spot phase,
and we are approaching tho maximum
of -disturbance. No one knows tho
cause. Some believe that it is plan
etary attraction," some that it is the fall
of great masses of meteoric matter, and
some that it is tbe result of internal
commotion and the rush upward of
gaseous explosions in comparison with
which our fiercest volcanic eruptions
are but the flicker of a flame. Besides
the sun-spot agitation, the gaseous out
bursts are marked and vivid. Tho
tongues of llame or rosy protuberances
are darting forth in all directions and
bearing their testimony to the solar
commotion. Mr. Trouvelot, of Cam
bridge, who makes daily observation of
the sun's chromosphere, gives a graphic
description of a remarkable solar pro
tuberance that he witnessed on the 16th
of November. When first seen it was
largo and complicated, extending up
ward from tho sun about a hundred
thousand miles. Three or four hours
after it had developed into huge pro
portions, extending far out into space,
and vanishing gradually to regions
where it could not be perceived. As
nearly as it could be measured, it
reached a height of over a quarter of
the sun's diameter, or about two hun
dred and thirty-five thousand miles.
Such a protuberance hurled upward
from the earth would almost reach tbe
moon! Two hours after, the whole
structure had collapsed, and was only
about eighteen thousand miles high.
Observations like this give an idea of
tho mighty forces at work in the solar
orb, and make observers long for tho
time when a satisfactory solution may
be fouud for this mysterious periodical
solar disturbance, so intimately con
nected with the meteorogical condition
of the eartlu
The heart has memories that never
die. The rough rubs of the world can
not obliterate Ihem. They are memo

There is a magic in tbe very sound.
There is the old tree under which tho
light-hearted boy swung many a day;
yonder the river in which he learned to
swim; there the house in which he knew
a parent's protection; nay, there is the
room in which he romped with brother
and sister, long since, alas! laid: in tho
grave in which he must soon be gather
ed, over-shadowed by yon church,
whither, with a joj-ous troop liko him
self, he has often followed his parents
to worship with, and hear, tho good old
man who ministered at tbe altar.
Why, even tho very school-house, as
sociated in youthful days with thoughts
of tasks, now conies to bring pleasant
remembrances of many occasions that
called forth some generous exhibitions
of the noble trait of human nature.
Thero is where ho learned to feel
some of his first emotions. Thero, per
chance, ho first met the being who, by
her love and tenderness in life, has
made a home for himself, happier even
than that which his childhood knew.
There are certain frclings of humani
ty, and those, too, among the best, that
can find an appropriate plnco for their
exercise only by one's own fireside.
There is privacy of that which it was a
6peeiesof desecration to viol.ite.
He who seeks wantonly to invade it
is neither more nor less than a villain;
and hence there exists no surer test of
the debasement of morals iu a commu

auy mode, tho man who invades tug
sanctity of private life.
In the turmoil of the world let thero

may find affections and conlideuco
which is not likely to be abused.

The alarming story about the death of
700,000 Illinois hogs in 1880 has now
been officially contradicted; but tho "pig

door for Noah which he could not or

there is in our cities one licensed

Temperance in the Southern States.
One of the most remarkable move
ments or the year nas been tne pro
gress pf tl cause pr temperance in
the Southern States.
The conviction (teems to bo almost
universal thnt something must bedoue
to stay the tide of intemperance which
bus been sweeping with such deadly
power all over the land. The great
uprising has manifested itself almost
simultaneously in the Legislatures of
the several States, which have been
occupied with prohibitory bills, local
option eifactraents, and high license.
North Carolina leads the way with a
prohibitory law. South Carolina,
Georgia. Alabama, Tennessee, and
other Stales follow with strong local
prohibitory acts; while Texas and Ar
kansas barely escape a constitutional
amendment fpr'i.ip lack of twp or
three of the necessary twortliird voe
to secure its passage.
The General Life Insurance office in
Cauadit has instructed its agents as
follows; "In Coi. sequence of the px
cessive mortality experienced iu the
cases of innkeiis whose livea hav
been assured wiih th company, it is
hereby notified that from this date the
