A lively scene occurred opposite
the P. O., yesterday, between a certain
pounder (of iron) and an expounder
(of the law), which might nve ended
seriously, if the bystanders had not in
terfered. During the war of words the
expounder accused the pounder of de
frauding him out of his salary m the
City Council, and the pounder says he
had reference to his defeating his op
ponent at the last city election, w here
by the expounder had been debarred
from the City Attorneyship. And all

who met with such forcible resistance
by the prisoner m charge and his
friends, that he, (Polin), was compell

he gave the prisoner a severe pommel

in the side. The prisoner was finally
lodged in jail, where he remained un

Saturday morning the engineer of
the gravel train was switching some
flat cars, at Louisville, on to a side
track and the fireman, Mir. M. D. Hart
son, was uncoupling the cars, four
cars had been pushed back, the fire
man was on a fifth, the engine backed
up to it and he attempted to step on
the engine as it struck, but in some
way his foot slipped and he fell bo
tween the engine and car, the engine
breaking one of his arms and one leg;
he was brought down to PlaUsmouth
and the doctors did what they could
for him, but he died about 4 p. m.
Mr. Ilartson was a young man from
Boston, Mass., where he was takt;: for

Death of Father Dooley.
Ilev. T. P. Dooley, rector of the
Episcopal church at Salina, Saline Co.
Kansas, died at his residence on Wed
nesday, August 10, 1881, at 2 o'clock
p. m. He died full of years of useful
ness, and in the blessed hope of a glo
rious mortality- lie was universally
respected for his uniform charity for
all and leaves behind him a long line
of mourning friends.
Father Dooley, as he was commonly
called, was not altogether unknown
in this city. lie was the father of
Mrs. Rev. H. B. Burgess, of St. LuKe's
church, and had made several short
visits here. He thus made friends of
all with whom he came in contact,
here, and by whom the news of his
final departure will be received with
feelings of undisguised sorrow. Mr.
a:id Mrs. Burgess were at his bedside
to comfort him in his last hours here
on earth, and receired his final bless
ing when he departed for that
brighter and happier land.
The funeral services took place on
tiie 12th, and were of an imposing
order. Peace to his ashes.
Note of Thanks.
Our heart-felt thanks are duo to our
friends in the parish for their present
awaiting our arrival. The sets of Chi

the more highly appreciated as a token
of affection at this present time.

PlaUsmouth, Aug. 13, 1881.
The southwest corner of Maiu and
9ixth streets just now is undergoing a
thorough change. Dr. Black moves
his private offiice further up Main
street, on the vacant lot adjoining Dr.
Livingston's office. The building for
merly occupied by O. F. Johnson will
be moved to the lot adjoining Hatt's
residence, and for the want of store
room accommodations at present, the
building occupied by Mrs. Johnson fc
Sweeney, will have to remain on the
street, until the prospective improve
ments are completed. The ground
thus vacated will be filled-with sub
stantial store-rooms, and the new bank
building for the Cass County Bank.
Dr. Black will erect two handsome
brick buildings on the coraer 24x80
feet, two stories high; the corner room
to be occupied by the Bank, with a
private office in the rtar, a store room
for Mrs. Johnson & Sweeney, and Dr.
Black's office. South of these rooms
the M. E. church will also erect a sub
stantial two story brick building, to
be divided into two store-room3, 22xG0
feet each. Altogether there will be
92 front feet of improvements on
Sixth street and 60 on Main. The
dirt excavated from these lots will be
used in partly tilling up Sixth street
to the established grade, raising the
street even with the sidewalk in front
of the church.
These buildings w ill be pushed with
the utmost vigor and it is expected
they will be partly ready for occu
pancy before the snow flies. When
completed it will make the hand
somest corner in town, and, no doubt,
attract considerable trade. The store
routes on Sixth street will make
choice locations for business pus-poses
and be in demand.
PlaUsmouth is thus gradually spread
ing out in her mercantile progress, and
ere long will vie with any town of her
size in prcsperity and growth.

Between three and four o'clock on
Tuesday morning last the night po
lice, Lohnes, called at Judge O'Dono
hoe's residence, requesting him to is
sue a warrant for the immediate ar
rest of Alex Rudabeck, who. he slated,
had shot the bridge lender on the east
approach an hour previous.
The Judge promptly went down to
his office for the purpose of making
out the necessary papers, where he
found the injured party in waiting.
Upon being requested to make his in
formation under oath, tne party in
question replied that he would not
swear, as he did not believe in a Su
preme Being or in a. future state. In
consequence the Judge could not issue
the warrant, and Mr. Rudabeck was
left unmolested for the time being.
The man, it seems, was shot through
the left wrist, causing a painful but
not serious wound. What his state
ment would be we an unable to 3ay
but Mr. Rudabeck's version of the af
faii is this:
Mr. 11. is the bridge tender on the
west approach of the It. R. bridge, and
the injured man has charge of the
east approach of the bridge and the
trestle work beyond. Mr." It's, duty
is to cross the bridge immediately af
ter the passage of a train as far as the
east approach, and tiie east end man is
to do the same on the trestle work. It
seems Mr. R. caught him asleep on
several occasions and chided him for
it, which aroused the ire of the man,
and on Tuesday morning he weut for
Mr. R. witli a club. Mr. R. cautioned
him, but the man not heeding, Mr. R.
blazed away with a pistol, the ball
striking him in the wrist.
Later in the day the wounded man,
whose name, by the way, is William
Baughn, as wo are informed, succeeded
in swearing out a warrant before
Judge Sullivan'. It. was immediately
arrested, and had a preliminary hear
ing before the Judge, who placed him
under $300 bonds to await the action
of the Mill3 County authorities, it hav
ing been learned that the shooting was
done on the Iowa side. In the man
time complaint had been made in Glen
wood, and towards evening officers
from thtre arrived to make thd arrest
Mr. R. surrendered voluntarily w ithout
awaiting a requisition from the Gover
nor of Iowa.
The latest we have learned is that
R. had a hearing in Glen wood, and had
been bound over to appear at the next
term of the Mills Co. Court. Up to yes
terday evening bonds had not been fur
nished, and Mr. 11. consequently lingers
in the Glenwood jail at present.

J. f. Hinckley and wife reci'ittly left
Eureka, Nevada, for a trip t t i ; C.ty
of Mexico. On the way tin y 1 t 0
encounters with road-agents, one of
their exploits being described a? fol
lows by Mr. Hinckley: The lat time
we were stopped it was by Mexicans.
One stood in front of the team and tlto
other came to demand the coin. I had
a revolver under the seat, but before I
could think of it my wife drew it and
shot the fellow who wauted the money.
The report of the pistol frightened tho
team, and it broke away and dashed
over the Mexican holding it. The
horses, however, were shortly drawn
up, and the road-agent captured before
he had a chance t recover. Wo lashed
him up and tooic l.inito old Mexico."

Suddenly the fish stopped biting.
Longslreet was unable to account for
the phenomenon, but w tile thinking it
over he felt the strong pull of a blue

he saw the dorsal fin of a shark close
by tho boat. The shark's tail churned

A Beneficent Action.
The worn look ai d miserable feeling
of those closely confined in mills, or at
desks or work tables, are caused by
weak stomach, kidneys or bowels, and
show the necessity for some mild ton
ic to build them up. No one need suf
fer thus who will use Parker's Ginger
Tonic; for without intoxicating it has
such a beneficent action on these slug
gish organs and so cleanses the poison
ous matters from the system, that rosy
cheeks and good health and spirits are
soon brought back again. Express.

Many persons take medicine for
their ailments, and as soon as they
feel better they disregard all directions
and stop taking it. They try it again
and again, and finally throw it aside
as worthless, when, had it been per
severed in from the start, apernianent
cure would have been affected. Now
in taking Prickly Ash Bitters for
all complaints of the stomach and
bowels, remember to give the medicine
a chance, and don't expect one or two
doses to cure von. 20t4
