The Plattsmouth Literary Society
hold regular meetings every Thursday

we were pleased to see, at our first at

response of the members to the duties
imposed upon them. But one duty
imposed wi;s not fulfilled by a present
member, and one by a member una
voidably absent. This augurs wtll

predominated throughout the evening,
the music was just first-class, and the
weather indoors exactly right for danc

The second Tuesday in September
is Regular Fire Meeting night, aud
member of the department, the
young men and others who have kept
the thing up this long are tired of
meeting alone, and having no money
and no help from the property own
ers and citizens. They talk of dis
banding entirely and letting the own
ers of property take care of their in
terests as regards fire.
This is the complaint made and the
Hekald calls attention t it, know
ing it is partly just. If even citizens
would turn out to the meetings, and
hear what the department needs and
wants and ought to have, the boys
would not feel so bad about i ; but
when they seem totally indifferent to
their meetings even, it must be con
cluded they do not want a fire depart
ment kept up.
The 13th, (second Tuesday m Sep
tember) is the next regular meeting,
reineiiibtr, and all who want to see
the present or a better organization
kept up should attend that meeting.
Mrs. W. P. Lane, sister of A. W.
McLaughlin Esq., is visiting in Platts
mouth. The band under Mr. Mathews
gave the editor and other citizens a
very handsome serenade Saturday
night. This band has greatly improved
lately, and every one says what lovely
music they do make.
Mr. Peter Eveland tells us of an ac
cident occurring to a man who had
been working for him which was
somewhat peculiar and illustrative of
the fftea unexpected danger of fire
Mr. Eveland, and tho victim ef the
accident wero making hay, when the
distant report of fire arms was heard,
and Mr. E. saw a hawk rise from a
stack of grain beyond them; looking
up, he also noticed his man stagger,
and going to him, asked him what was
the matter? The man answered that
so.net hing had struck him, and Mr. E.
then noticed a hole in his shirt on tin
shoulder, and blood. Upja examina
tion, a wound was found ia the shoul
der, ranging towards the neck, which
will lay the man up for some time.
As the sound of the pistol seemed
so far distant, Mr. Eveland had the
curiosity to find out who and how far
off the shooting parties were, and
found the distance intervening be
tween the place of shooting and the
party shot, to be 110 rods exactly and
the weapon used a small revolver,
with barrel only 2 inches long. The
shooting party's name was Henry
Hunt, who was also haying in a neigh
boring field, and in passing to his work
had seen the hawk and fired with the

The Sessions .Moral.
(From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The defeat of ilr. Sessions ia the
Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Senatoi
ial convention in New Yorfc is a cheer
ing and significant event. There are
many who are disposed to regard
American politics with distrust. The
charges of corruption which are bus
lly made by one party against the
other and the not infrequent expos
ures of dishonest practices in cam
paigns, Legislatures and Congress,
nave conspired to present a gloomy
view to those who are at all inclined
to be pessimistic. I', would he foolish
to expect that integrity should be the
peculiar and unexceptional charac
teristic of politics, when a lack of it
appears iu every other department of
human activity. Business has its pro
portion of dishonesty of innumerable
grades; the medical profession has its
quacks; the legal its shysters, and
black sheep now invade the pulpit.
Every trade has its trbks. Politics
has certainly not less of them than
the average. It is bad enough, worse
than it should be; but alter all, may
it not be held responsible for . a
greater sLare than really lies at its
This is a grievous thing for Mr.
Sessions, foi politics is his profession,
and his career has leceived a fatal
check. From u business or profes
sional standpoint he is ruinud.
There have been some cases where
the people of districts have been so
corrupt as to oiler no rebuke to their
dishonest Representatives. Williaifl
M. Tweed was returned to the State
senate by 10,000 majority after his
exposure; but iu that case the Senate
refused to receive him. Fernando
Wood was repeatedly returned to
Congress, after exposed speculation.
But these were exceptional cases; and
it may be incidentally remarked their
constituents were Democrats a very
bad kind of Democrats, it is true, but
stili Democrats. It may fairly be
submitted that the Republicans have
never returned a man to power whose
guilt had been proved and become
generally known. The Credit Mobil
ier speculation filled many apolitical
grave, and the postal route develop
ments which are now being made will
till others. So it may reasonably be
inferred that the popular virtue may
be relied en for a long while yet to
keep our polities from being destruc
Theie is a constant stream of in
terested effort directed by corrupt
men against the public crib; but it is
a happy reflection that when the ex
tent of corruption is revealed, the peo
ple rise against it and drive it back to
close quarters, where it remains until
the pubiic watchfulness subsides,
when it timorously ventures forth
Yes, and there is a little political
nest of corruption close at home here
in Nebraska, that will fill fresher
graves still, before many campaigns,

Handed in His Bills.
An old darkey, who works around
town by the day and who is very proud
of his reputation of extraordinary abil
ity of ciphering, called on Gilhooly
yesterday with a view to get a settle
ment, in cash, for work done in Gil
hooly's garden. "Well, Uncle Ben,"
said the Major, "How much do 1 owe
you?" "Ise -worked fur ye 'leben days
at a dollar a day, boss, an' if yer hand
me a piece of paper an' a riencil I'll
cipher it out fur yer." Uncle Ben got
the paper, and, pretending to figure on
it, he said: "Leben days at a dollar a
day. Lemme see, oughl's a ought,
cipher's a cipher, figure's a figure, two
ter carry an' one ter throw away. 'Lob

A Chae for a Bear.
George Coe, foreman of tho Apple
tree & Fisher lease, was coming down
the rugged hill above Knox City, one
evening recently, when he saw some
thing in tho thicket that closely re
sombled a dog. He looked more care
fully and found it to bo a large black
bear. That was the lhst limo ho looked.
Without a moment's hesitation ho
started down the hill with the fleetness
of the wind. He arrived in Knox white
with fright and nlniost breathless with
fatigue. After recovering himself
somewhat he told 11 T. Mori an and
Joseph Bannister of the terrible dis
covery made by him. Those gentlemen
each procured a trusty shot-gun which
they loaded with five drachms of pow
der and twelve buckshot. Threo fero
cious dogs were also secured, and tho
hunting party went forth to do and
dare. Arriving at tho point whero
bold bruin had been seen by Coe, tho
dogs caught the scent and iu a very
short time came upon the bear. A
fierce light followed between the dogs
and bear, during which active engage
ment bruin sustained but little injury,
while one of the dogs hail a piece of
flesh torn from his hip and the hide on
both flanks lacerated in a hideous man
ner by blows from the shaggy brute.
Bannister got within forty feet of tho
bear, and, taking careful aim, iired
The bear uttered a groan of pain, an I
lied at a lively gait down tho rugged
mountain side, through the ravine and
up the other mountain side, which is
thickly covered with underbrush. The
men .and dogs started in pursuit, but
were unable to make anything like tho
speed attained by the bear. They
could easily track tho animal by drop
of blood which stained the brush as ho
passed along. They continued tho
search until darkness overtook them,
and theyr were compelled to abandon
the trail. Early the following morning
they resumed the hunt. 'The placo
where the hear had lain during a part
of the night was discovered. Tho
leaves and ground were covered with
bruin's blood, but the hear could not
bo found. While tho dogs were engag
ing tho animal tlto preceding evening
the men had full view of bruin. He
was a monstrous big black bear, weigh
ing, perhaps, 400 or moro pounds.

Mica in Dakota
Six miles from Custer is a mica mine.
As near as has thus far been ascer
tained tho mica-bearing rock is at least
100 feet wide, and is so thickly impreg
nated with mica that one ton of rock
will produce over 600 pounds of rough
mica. It is estimated that four men
can get out over 1,000 pounds of mica
in a day. It must be remembered that
mica rock cannot bo worked as rapidly
as ore, as it is necessary to preserve tho
blocks of mica from drilling or shatter
ing in lire blasts. The mine now has
an open cross-cut near tho south end,
where the top of the ledge is narrow,
perhaps thirty feet wide. The quality
of tho mica in tho first opening made
on tho mine was not first-class.although
the sheets were very large, but lately
they have been taking out some very
clear mica, and they are now confident
that they can furnish a large quantity
of first-class material. Custer Chron.
Having on a Wedding Garment.
At Dortmund, Germany, a swain
about to be married missed his watch,
and set the police on its track. They
found it in a pawnbroker's, aud traced
it back to the young man's sweetheart,
whom they arrested before giving him
any information. In court the girl,
with many sobs and tears, confessed
that not having means to get a wedding-dress,
and being ashamed to beg
from her betrothed, siio had purloined
and pawned his watch. The gallant
suitor, who had not felt tho least sus
picion as to who the larccntst was. was
not displeased at her desire to come to
him in titling costume, and he assured
the court that his love was not only un
abated, but if she might bo released ho
would at once marry her. Tho judge
cons'-nting, the knot was lied, and tho
bridegroom took home his wife with
her taking ways, and after a brief visit
to the pawnbroker, ho was once moro
equipped with a Watch on the Rhino.
A Lady in Lnck.
There is no mining country so new
or so far away as not to have its ro
mance. Tho Wood river region in
Idaho territory has its. Tho story, as
told by the Deliver Tribune, runs thus:
Among tho many prospectors of a
year ago wero four young men who
were rewarded by the" discovery of a
valuable mine near Ilalley. Ono of tho
young men had a lady friend, and it
was decided to name tho mine after
her, and to fix the titlo that in case of
their death it should be hers. Last
winter, while working upon tho claim,
tho whole party was buried beneath a
snow-slide, and now tho young lady is
planning what good sho will do With
tho $05,000 that has been offered her
for her neat little legacy. The young
lady is a very handsome brunette of
fine education and charming manners.
Gov. Tabor'B Fortune,
Lieut. Gov. Tabor, of Colorado, owns
from $4,000,000 to $8,000,000, all ac
quired within four years. But his sud
den wealth was preceded by eighteen
years of poverty, deprivation, and
struggle for himself and his wife.
They went West from Maine during
the Pike's excitement, . spent all
their money, found no gold, and there
after roughed it in border settlements,
working for small wages at first, and
afterward keeping small stores in min
ing camps. In 1877 ho bought, in
Denver, $2,500 worth of goods "for a
Leadville store, and tried to induce the
firm to take half of the Little Pittsburg
claim in payment, but they preferred
to take his note. That mine yielded
him $150,000 in three months, and
eventually $1,300,000. The original
cost was "grab stakes" for the two
prospectors, the bargain being that he
should have half of whatever they dis
covered in the trip.
The Fickle Sex.
A woman-hater thus analyzed the im
pulses of the sex : "Let us suppose a
woman whose affections are disengaged,
walking on the bank of a river with
two young men. She falls itito tho
water. One of the two men plunges in
and rescues her. Which of tho two
will she love?"
"The ono who saved her. of course."
"Not at all. She will prefer tho ono
who remains on the bank, and limits
his endeavors to rubbing her hands raid
feet. His hair is in good order and his
collar irreproachable. While tho ono
w ho jumped into the water after hor is
dripping wet, his hair clings absurdly
to his head, his complexion has a
greenish tinge, in a word, ho is dis
gusting!" The fishing-smack Ne'son c mo hito
New Loudon with 5,000 pound. of
sword-fish that she took off lilck Isl
and. She also brought along a por
poise that was taken at the sauiu time.
Tho porpoise has been placed on exhi

specimen is captured. It is six feet
