"Ti not in mortals to command
Success" as all can understand.
And business men ft rack their brains
How to increase their f ales and gains.
Of all the plans which men devise
None equals this to advertise.
In competition's arduous race
Dost thou desire a foremost place?
Does high ambition fire thy toul.
Men's minds aud pockets to control?
Then listen to this counsel wise.
And largely freely advertise.
Wouldst thou behold th e people flock
To see the well-selected stock.
And tempted by the bright display.
Delighted buy and gladly pay?
Ttiis pleasant sight shall meet thine eyes
If thou wilt only advertise.
Put forward thine undoubted claim,
Let every household know thy name.
The people shall accept thy bill.
And honor it with right food will
Success is given to him who trie.",
And tries again- eo advertise.
Hang out thy banners on each wall,
Eet them be neither few nor small.
So that the people may give heed,
Aud he that runs may alco read,
Iu letters of gigantic size,
The facts which thou dost advertise.
So shall thy business still increase.
And all thy doubts and fears shall ceane.
The people shall thy name record,
Familiar as a household word.
For they alone shall win the prize
Who fairly deal, and advertise.

Dear Old Herald: Once more I
take up my pen to contribute a few
lines to your free and interesting
News items are not plenty just now,
hereabouts. Our wheat crop, with
few exceptions, is very light; the corn
croplooks well but most of it is late
and will require a favorable fall to
mature and ripen. AVe need rain the
most of anything, the ground is very
dry indeed; the hay crop is good, a
there was plenty of rain early.
We were passing through the village
of Weeping Water the other day and
we noticed that every fellows face
was covered with smiles and dimples;
we asked what was up? Oh! a rail
road, a railroad, they were going to
have a railroad, sure as pop. e
learned that a teachers' institute was
in progress there, and as it was be
tween four and live in the afternoon
the school masters and school luarms
were as thick, in the streets, as toads
after a shower, and they say that Prof.
Woolev and Prof. Drummond are drill
ing them till they can't sleep nights.
The people of ueeping Water are
really enlarging their borders and
strengthening their stakes, they are
bound to have a wide-awake, business
town, and old Plattsmouth may as
well give up the county seat without
a struggle or a groan to the nourishing
town of eeping ater. fc. P. II.
S. P. II. has probably not been in
Plattsmouth lately, or he would not
be so sure of "Old Plattsmouth's giv

II alf Breeds nd Stalwarts.
IS. Y. Suu,
The Half breeds have their tri
umph. It is their day. Various ac
cidents and much corruption have
concurred to enable them to lift two
political clods into the Senatorial
seats of New York. There is noth
ing for the present to hinder their un
restrained enjoyment of the spoils
of the Administration. This is the
immediate and tangible fruit of their
disorganization of the parly, and we
presume they are just now too happy
over the prospect of the feast to think
much of consequences which are not
very remote. When Congress meets,
they may discover that the club with
which they have brained the stal
warts has changed hand3.
fsuppese Mr. Jones and Mr. Cameron
or Mr Jones and Mr. Logan should
refuse to enter the Senate caucus at
Washington, or that even the Vice-
President should see lit to follow the
example set him at Albany? Suppose
halt a dozen stalwarts should do the
same in the Ilwuse? The Half breeds
have stood outside the party organiz
ation with the approval and encour
agement of the administration, and
they cannot complain if the few stal-
war's who remain true to their con
victions, notwithstanding the seduc
tions and intimidations of temporary
power aud pay, shall do likewise when
their opportunity arrives.
Many things may happen between
this and December, and much niav be
disclosed that is now hidden.

THE STATE FAIR.
Some of the New Features and Special
Gen. J. C. McBride, secretary of the
state board of agriculture, returned
yesterday from Omaha, where he had
been in attendance at the meeting of
the board of managers. This morn
ing he gave the Globe considerable in
formation concerning the coming fair
and some of its leading attractions.
The fair next month will surpass in
many features any other that have
heretofore been held.
The great attraction, the central fig
ure of observation, will be a grand elec
tric light. Gen. McBride, during his
recent visit to the east, made a con
tract with the Brush Electric Light
Company, of Cleveland, to light the
buildings and grounds. The exhibi
tion will be open at night the same as
during the da'. In fact it is claimed
the buildings? will be lighter than in
day time. Each lamp has a luminous
power equal to 2000 caudles. The
chariot race3 will be run at night by
these lights. The audience in the
amphitheatre' will be able to distin
guish the horses and the colors worn
by the drivers. In this connection we
will mention that the same persons,
a man and a woman, who appeared
here in Coup's Circus will compete
in the chariot races at the fair. They
will drive teams of four horses abreast
and have agreed to make the run of a
half mile around the track in one min
ute. These races will occur on Friday
and Saturday the last two days.
'Another specialty of the county
fair will be the balloon ascension.
Parties from Mt. Ayr, Iowa, have se
cured the contract. An ascension
will be made every evening, and
sprcial ascensions will be made two
days during the week.
The fish exhibits will be something
iiew at our fairs. The state com
mission will have on exhibition in
aquariums the different species of
game fish now breeding in Nebraska
waters. This will give our people
who are interested in fish culture a
chance to see what is being done in
that direction. There will also be ex
hibited various kinds of fish from
other states. Altogether this exhibi
tion will present a sight at once at
tractive and interesting.
Arrangements have been made to
have on exhibition an apiary. It will
be in an enclosure partly of wire und
partly of netting. This will allow the
bees to go and come from the hives
and the interested public may watch
them at work, improving the shining
From Jefferson county there will be
an exhibition of silk worms and co
coons. These are exhibited by a col
ony of Menuouites, who have for
some time been engaged in silk worm
If the matter of transportation can
be arranged, sixteen cars of fine stock
will come from Wisconsin. This lot
includes short-horn and .Jersey cattle
Clydesdale horses, trotting horses and
hogs. This stock will be on exhibi
tion at tha Minnesota state fair, at
Ninneapolis, the week previous to our
The celebrated Twenty-third In
fantry band will furnish music. This
organization is west and needs no
commendation at our hands. It is
sufficient to say that this may be
called an attractive feature.
It will be seen that these features
alone will bring a large number of
people to the fair. The people of
Omaha are doing all they can to make
it a success. We wish also to com
mend the efforts of the press of that
city in behalf of the fair. The Repub
lican, especially, is making a grand
effort in its behalf. With all the pros
pects, the people of Nebraska may
feel that the coming state fair will be
a grand success.
A Company of Slalitia and a Score of

St. I'aul Special to the Globe-Democrat.
For three weeks the wild forest re
gions and rivers in northwestern Wis
consin have leen the scene of a re
markable hunt for desperate, outlaws.
On the lOlh of July Charles and Mil
ton Coleman, deputy sheriffs of Dunn
county, were attempting to arrest Ed
ward and Lou Maxwell, alias Wil
liams for horse stealing in Henderson
county, 111. No sooner had the two
officers uttered the words, Tou are
our prisoners," to one of the brothers,
than the other fired from behind and
ki.hd one of the Caleman brothers,
and the other was killed by a shot
from the Williams brothers in front.
The desperadoes immediately took
to the woods, and from that day to
this have probably not been seen by
any human being who would reveal
the slightest info mation of their
whereabouts. A posse of citizens,!
headed by old and trusty tcouts, has
been in constant pursuit, and the Lud-
ington guards, of Menomonee, a finely ;
organized body of militia, named after
ex-Governor Ludington, have been on
the trail. The Williams boys are

plainsmen with thirty bloodhounds.
Among the pursuers are Edward
and Harry Coleman, brothers of the
murdered men, and two of the best
shots in Wisconsin. The expectation
is that if the murderers are caught
alive thej' will be hung without the
ceremony of a trial; but few people
expect, however, that they will ever
be caught alive, if they are ever seen
again in this section of the country.
They know every rod of the country
between the Menomonee and Missis
sippi rivers, and in the wild high hills,
full of caves and steep winding defiles
in the rocks, they have a shelter and
fortification which would protect them
from a thousand well-armed men.
They are well armed with Winchester
rilles and six shooters, and have an
abundance of ammunition. It is be
lieved that they can be starved out. A
letter written recently by Lon to ths
reverend gentlemen who married him
states that his wife influenced a strong
control over him; that he fully intend
ed to reform and lead a respectable
life, which would not cause her to
blush for him; that lie was driven to
madness by not being allowed to see
her, even on her death-bed, and that
now nothing was before him but to
get even with thoso who had kept him
from her and sell his life as dearly as
possible. It is said that when the des
peradoes were found by the Coleman
brothers they were on their way to

two of whom were physicians who at

side. That such a man will allow
himself to be taken alive is a matter
of great doubt. The pursuers are sat
isfied t hat u.i less extreme caution en
ables them to approach the outlaws
when they are asleep or overcome
with exaustion some one or more of
their number will fall victims to their
unerring rifles. The most knowing
hunters say that the chances are that
the murderers are now on their way
safely down the Mississipi, and one or
two b'.ories that have come up -the
river of two men being seen here and
there gives woof and warp to the story.
The thorough hunt that will be made
with bloodhounds in the next forty
eight hours will probably settle the
doubt. The Maxwells or Williams
brothers have for a year or more been
in the vicinity of Stillwater, Minn.,
and through the St, Croix valley,
where they carry terror into the hearts
of the inhabitants of the rural districts
and local officers of the law. On moro
than one occasion they have attempt
ed their arrest, and some of them owe
their lives to appreciating that discre
tion was the better patt of valor. The
notorious brothers never allowed
themselves to be surprised, and the
luckless officials were glad to beat a
hasty retreat before the gaping muzzle
COCKED WINCHESTER RIFLES.
A dispatch from Eau Claire to-night
says a battalion of Wisconsin state
militia have been ordered to the Eau
Galle woods to aid in the hunt. Gov
ernor Smith declares that desperadoes
shall be catisht if it takes the entire
resources of the state to capture them.
This is impossible, unless their acces
sories are detected and caught. The
fact is that brutal and murderous as
the Williams brothers are known to
be, and despite the wide spread sym
pathy of the people or the whole re
gion with the friends and family of
the murdered men. There is some
feeling for the desperado s. One of
them, Lon, had professed the inten
tion of reforming; he had married an
attractive young woman, who belong
ed to the church and had a strong in
fluence over her husband. He had re
turned from his horse-stealing expe
dition into Illinois to join her during
the trying ordeal by which she was to
become a mother, but officious friends
of her family had prevented him from
seeing her, and she died in childbirth.
The man was naturally maddened and
hardened in his desperate life.
