An exciting run-away took place
last week Thursday. Cheap John's
team was onthe hill near Geo. Smith's
somewhere, with the Golding children
in the wagon. Somehow they started
the horses and down the hill they
came, one young one on the seat
bouncing from side to side, and yelling
for dear life, and the other hanging
on to the pole and doubletrees oi the
wagon, where he must have been
thrown the first jump or two.
The team turned the coi ner on Main
street, and upset the wagon, throwing
the boy out and cutting his head. The
one hanging to the tongue dropped off
when the team was stopped and was
scarcely hurt any.

Every Saturday afternoon, among
the passengers on the train northward
bound, may be found Chaplain Wright
en-ronto for Bellevue, where for
1 early two years he has been in charge
of the Presbyterian congregation.
When ho retired from his position
as army chaplain, his age entitling
him to an honorable discharge, it was
reasonable to suppose tha he would
be content to pass the remainder of
his days iu restful enjoyment as the
result of his labors; but when, after
occupying the vacant pulpit of Belle
vue for a Sunday, he was called upon
to take charge of that parish, which
had intended to call a young man, but
found the Chaplain young enough to
suit them, with faculties and love of
the work still unimpaired by dvanc
ing years he accepted their call and
has since occupied the pulpit faith
fully twice eveiy Sunday. For nearly
forty-seven years he has officiated al
most every Sunday; a record which
he may well contemplate with satis

A Cass County Man Goes for th SIo
c 11 nib li w.
It has generally been expected that
for the present at least the adherents
of the Slocumb law would do the ag
gressive work, and so far such has
been the case. Yesterday John Ossen
kop, a saloon keeer of Louisville, Cass
county, turned the tables and com
menced an attack on the county com
missioners of Cass in the supreme
court at Lincoln. It seems that the
latter refused to give Ossenkop a li
cense under the Slocumb law or any
other law, claiming that the word
"may" in the statute made it discre
tionary with them to grant a license
or refuse one altogether. The relator
John Ossenkop. through his attorneys
Suiythe & Stull, claims that the decis
ion's are in favor of construing the
word "may" as "must" in statutory
language. So it was that Col. Smythe
went to Liucoln yesterday and com
menced an action for mandamus in
the supreme court on the relation of
John Ossenkop to compel the
commissioners to issue a li
cense. The hearing is set down for
August 9th. when it is expected the
Slocumb bill will have a complete
over-hauling before the supreme
court judges. Telegram.

Tba Pepluar Schoolmaster,
lie thinks the town is wild over hi:n.
He keeps things at a white heat; is on
1.!. e soft side of the newspaper men; is
a royal good fellow iu society; has a
lovely wife; is strongly intrenched in
the Popular Street Church, and strokes
everybody the right way. The general
impression is that the Goodrich School
is a little ahead of anything else, in this
region, because he says so.- f';v u'il of
The Elocution Class aud Their Fntcr
taimueut. The class in elocution which has
been studying under the auspices of
Prof. Chamberlain, of Lincoln, gave a
closing entertainment last Tuesday
The class have taken a course of
twenty lessons only, an hour a lesson,
and with two or three exceptions were
beginners m the art elocutionary. Tak
ing this into consideration, then, we
weie really surprised to see the good
results attained in so short atirue. In
gesture work, that most difficult part
for a beginner, the' showed a decided
improvement upon the first crude ef
forts as a class. The selections were
good; Archie Dean. Karl the Martyr,
The Last Hymn, Pyramus and Thisbe
gave example of the various styles
and were all well given. Nor in men
tioning those do we exclude the other
selections and the merits of those who
Two selections given by Prof. Cham
berlain himself, a scene from Hamlet,
and "She Would be a Mason," with a
guitar solo, the Spanish Retreat, af
forded the audience much pleasure.
The Old Arm Chair by Miss Maud
Barnes accompanied by Prof Chamber

The entertainment as a whole shows
the abilities of Prof. Chamberlain as a
teacher in a most favorable light, and
speaks well for 1 his, the first class in
elocution, which has been conducted
in Plattsmouth since we lived here.
We hope it is the beginning of an ef
fort in that direction which shall give
us same good elocutionists. "We have
enough ability among our young peo
ple, if they will only make their stan
dard high. There is no reason why
Plattsmouth should not turn out as ac
complished and cultured'youths as any
town in Nebraska.
The Man With a Eacket
He was probably from Deadwood, or
Custer City, or the Gunnison Valley, or
from some of tho other places whera
they wear one shirt for three months
and have no other wish except to die
wilh their boots on, no matter how
man square feet of cowhide there is in
them. There was only one other man
in the saloon when he entered and in
quired for live lingers of straight pizen.
This solitary man sat with a lo on
either side of a chair his chin resting
on the back of it. His eyes were half
closed, his tonguo hanging out a bit,
and his mind was at rest. Tho new ar
rival swallowed hi liquid, wiped oft
his clan ou his coat-tali, and suddenly
came down in front of the-sleeping man
"I'm from the head waters of Grizzly
River! I'm the only living 'reptile as
ever crossed Rattlesnake Perrary or
swum the length of Alligator Lake!
"I've fit Use hull Pawuee tribe of In
juns to onct! I've gone out at mid
night to tackle catamounts, and got np
r.irly in the morning to pull cinnamon
b ars out of their dens! I've looked
bu nier bulls out of countenance, and
I've made a grizzly shake all over by
"Ve-e-s," drawled the man on tho
chair as ho drew in Ids tongue and
op"ued the other eye.
Don't tackle me!' yelled Deadwood,
as ' i.i Cvl high in air an-1 clicked his
1 '. -l.'i together. "The man who tackles
1: e is tjiilp in j"st two seconds! Don't
s t thar and look at mo that way, for
! I'm an avalanche on wheels a land-
j slid.; with a gait of ninety miles a mill-
it a tornado which plays ball with t lie
peaks of the Rockies! That's the rack
et I've worked ever since I was ten
'i'i.e man on the chair yawned heavi
ly, stretched his arms, and lifted him
self up with the motion of an elephant.
"Whoop! waugh!" yelled the other.
"I've lost . my notched stick, but I'll
make oath I've wiped out forty-seven
white men and over a hundred Injuns!"
The other slowly removed his old hat
and Hung it on the lloor. Then ho
pushed up his sleeves aud tightened his
belt and gave himself a shake.
"W-what's the matter, old man?"
earnestly inquired the man from Dead
wood. The other poked his hair until it
sto-.tl up like wires, got clear of tho
tliu'.r. and begau to fumble under his
"W-what yergwhie to do, old pnrd?"
"Gwine fur to spile yer racket! I
don't 'low nobody to jump up andd vn
and holier and whoop and wausrii on
:ie when I'm astraddle of a cheer and
"Yer don't! Then I'm dead sorry.
Fact is, I took yer for another man
for a wall-eyed, crook-backed, knock
kneed, softy-pillar from the Calico
Flats, and I meant to make wolf-meat
of you in just 'leven Shy Ann seconds.

Sitting Eull's Last Speech.
Warriors, I am tho last of a mighty
race. Wc were a race of chieftains.
Alas! we will soon be gone. The Bull
family will soon pass from the face of
this earth. Ole is gone, and John is
failing, and I don't feel very well my
self. We are the victims of the pale
face, and our lands are taken away.
Look at the tad remnant of the fami
ly of Sitting Bull, ov.r chief. One
sore eyed squaw is left alone. Her
face is furrowed, o'er with the rime of
many winters, and her nose is only the
ruin of former greatness. Her mocca
sins are sworn out, ami the soldier
pants she wears are too long for her.
She also is drunk. She is not as drunk
as she can get, but she is hopeful and
persevering. She lias learned to lie
like a whitem.-in. She is now an easy
exten poraueous liar. When we gather
around tho camp fire and enact our uu
tutored lies in the gloaming, Lticretia
Borgia Silting Bull, wilh the inspiration
of six lingers of agency coffin varnish,
proceeds to tell the prize prevarication,
and then the house adjourns, and noth
ing cau be heard but the inufiled tread
of the r.gcncy corn beef, going out to
get some fresh air. Lticretia Borgia is
also becoming slovenly. It is evening
aud yet she has not donned her evening
dress. As she leans against the trunk
of a mighty oak and scratches her back,
you can see that her thoughts are far
away. She is thinking of her child
hood days on the banks of Minnehaha.
Warriors, farewell. Think of what I
have said to you about the council fire.
We will murmur nt the celluloid crack
er and cast iron eoi tis'i ball, but in the
spring we will have veal cutlets for
breakfast, and pence commissioner on
toast for dinner. The squaw of Sitting
Bull shall have a new plug liat, and if
the weather is severe she shall have
two of them.
Warriors, farewell, I am done. I
have spokeu. 1 have nothing more to
say. Sic semper domino. Plumbago

Bdvont Toutg Robbers.
Greek brigandage is a regularly or
ganized business. A little capital for
the pureha.ie of arms is required. Pa
pers are drawn up, iu which the shares
of the captain and the men are speci
fied. Sometimes routes are let by oro
band to another for a percentage. It
proving exceptionally good in one ca'-e,
the parties came very near bringing tho
affair into court on a lawsuit. Death to
the captive is almosL certain if the ran
som is not paid. A ransom which was
once on its way from Constantinople
was stolen from the messenger hy an
other band, but the captive was killed
all tho same. A farmer having two
children captured could send the money
only for one, and the boy was returned.
He begged a little delay, but the band
was on the move and could not wait.
The little girl was found afterward with
a stab ia her heart and wild flowers in
her h.m I. These robbers never drink
wine, never neglect tiieir religious du
ties, always cress tbeniselves before eat
