GREAT BED STORE. Plattsmouth, - Mebraslta. 0u Advertising. "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. Chicago West End Advocate. From Victoria. Dear Old Herald: Once more I take up my pen to contribute a few lines to your free and interesting pages. 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 ing up the County Seat without a struggle or a groan to the floutishing town of Weeping Water" Ed. 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 Popluar ScjcoIrcas'cT. He thinks tiie town is uiu! over hi n.

Some of the New Features and Special Attractions. 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 hours. 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 raising. 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 fair. 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. THE OUTLAWS. A Company of Slalitia and a Score of Itlood hounds iu the Field. 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 S alays we STiirnitiirc. tough, active men, keenly versed in wood-craft, quick and sure shots, and are marked by that reckless disregard of human life which is common to the border rufiian. They come of A FUGITIVE VIRGINIA FAMILY ' that came into Illinois at the outbreak 1 of the rebellion, and seem to have in herited the spirit which is the pride of the southern bully. To-day two In dian scouts were put on the trail and to-day they will be joined by six more 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 KILL FOUR WELL-KNOWN CITIZENS. two of whom were physicians who at tended Lon s wife during her last sick ness, and two others who were active in keeping the husband from her bed 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 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 of COCKED WINCHESTER RIFLES.

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.

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. Man Overboard.
