The description of Dr. Marshall's Dioiiioiine by a school boy is good. He M;; s b!r, bigger, biggest, and pa got it for j ) c.-iits. The city schools opened Monday rind a goodly number of pupils ere seen ascending the Hill of Knowl edge. Take Ayer's Cherry Pectoral to stop your colds, coughs and bronchial affections before they run into con sumption that you cannot stop. The thermometer registered two degrees higher at ssven o'clock Mon day morning than at that hour any any time this summer. Dr. Marshall's Bronioiine cures biliousness, constipation, fern tie weak ness and all blood and liei complaints. Big bottles, 50 cents. Drufgists keep it. Mr. Asa Core, one f Cass County'? well-to-do farmers, brought in 400 head of very fine sheep the first of Iait, week. He has quite a drove left. There will be a sociable at Good Templars hall ntxt Monday night. All are cordially invited to attend, it is for the benefit of the Temperance work. From 193 to 53 is rather a big tumble for the thermometer within one week, but that was the difference between last week and yesterday. Where's that overcoat? "Why don't you try Carter's Little Li: er Pills? They are a positive cure fr sick headache, and all the ills pro iluced by disordered liver. Only one pill a dose. Jjold by Smith, Black & Co. Messrs.

Frank Maldaner, of Kansas City, returned Monday after a short visit among his friends in Plattsmouth. Geo. A. Maguey went up to Papill ion last, week and spent a few days with Byron Clark, lie reports Byron doing a good law practice. Mesdanies Parker and Jonathan Wise left, the first of the week, for Il linois and other points east. Their trip will occupy live or six weeks. Miss Ida Goodcll returned to Platts mouth the latter part of la.t week, where she will teach one of the grades in the High School the coming year. Henry Mertens, an old friend of the Hkkalu, came in last week, and left us better off for his Tisit. Htniy is a thrifty farmer, and fast friend to those he likes. Mr. A. Harmon, of Weeping Water made the IIkkalu a shoit call last week aud adds his testimony tw the general liveliness and good feeling down at that thriving point. The Misses Ida aiid Alma Water man left on Monday of this week for the Young Ladies' Seminary at Jack sonville, 111., which Miss Ida has been attending for the past twoyears. Mr. George Dovey left for New York Tuesday, where he will meet his moth er, who w ill return with him. While absent he will purchase the largest stock of goods ever brought to Platts mouth. D. II. Wheeler, Jr.. goes to Lincoln this week to act as special aid and as sistant to the Democrat, during theie unioa. By the wiy,"Dan Jr." is mak ing quite a newspaper man, and we shall look for his reports with interest. Rev. Mr. Gallagher will go to con ference next week and will probably not return to Plattsmouth as pastor of the M. E. Church another year. Mr. Gallagher has been pastor here fo: several years and we are sorry to hear he has made up his mind to leave. M. A. McKiuncn started for his home at Prince Edward Island, Sun day afternoon, where he will spend the fall and winter with relatives and friends. Mr. C.

The gist precaution essentially nec essary "says tltis dist inc'ished Profes sor" is to secure in time your blankets, llannels, woolens, comfortables, bat tings, heavy hose, underwear, cloaks, dolmans, wraps, gloves, etc.. at Solo mon : Nathan's and then let her come. 1 The Plattsmouth base ball nine and the Weeping Water nine will play a match game at the Fair Grounds to morrow at o'clock. All wishing to see a good game had better be present. At the semi-annual election of of ficers of the Plattsmouth Liederkranz, on the 4th mat., the following were elected: President, II. Thierolf; Vice President, John Lutz; Secretary, A. II. Weckbach; Treasurer, II. M. Bons; Librarian, C. Wohlfarth. The society is in a flourishing condition, and niak ing rapid progress in the musical art. Solomon & Nathan have just open ed out their first invoice of millinery goods. Go and see trie new styles. 1 Dr. and Mrs. G. B. Chapman, of Lincoln, have bee?: visiting in New Jersey and New York city and around, we learn from an old friend in N. J. The beach, with the rolling wave strikes the Doctor as the thing these days. Oh, if Nebraska had a beach somewhere handy, what a state she'd be. "Ladies" be sure and go to Sol omon & Nathan this week and see the magnificent and unusual large assort ment of dolmans, cloaks, wraps &c, just opened out. 1 The Plattsmouth Literary Society hold regular meetings every Thursday eveDing at Temple of Honor Hall, and we were pleased to see, at our first at tendance last Thursday evening, the interest manifested and the prompt 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 for the continued healthful life of the Society. An entertainment is talked of ia the near future. Mr. Nathan writes from New York that he struck the Dry Goods market at the right time, and will purchase such a lin of goods as has never been seen in Plattsmouth. It will tie to the interests of every Dry Goods buyer to wait the arriral of our complete stock before purchasing. 1 Solomon St Nathan. The select party of Prof. Pinney's dancing class, at Fitzgerald hall, on Tuesday evening last, was qnite xrell attended, despite the inclemency of th weather, and the programme was carried out in full. Everything passed oil in fxcwllent style; mirth and jollity predominated throughout the evening, the music was just first-class, and the weather indoors exactly right for danc ing. Had the weather outside fceea more propitious we have no doubt but that tin Hall would have been filled to ovei flowing. Kare Novelties. Something lovely in fringe trim mings each piece combining in i:self time distinct shades. The ladies all pronounce these goods, as well as a gif at many other nevelties constantly arriving, as incomparable, go to Sol omon & Nathan's and see them. 1 Fire Department. 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 arms. 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 above result. Another lesson to boys and those unused to the handling of ire arms on the necessity of care. If you are nervous or dyspeptic try Carter's Little Nerve Pills. Dys pepsia makes you nervous, and nerv ousness makes you dyspeptic; either one renders you miserable and these little pills cure both. Sold by Smith, Black & Co. Parker, the marble man from Lincoln, dropped in again on Thurs day last week, to see the Editor, to di vide grapes with him, and have a pleasant c! at, which we always have with Parker, by the way. as he is a great talker and humorous withal, grave as his business may be called, ami that reminds us of a little story: Last spring, when Coup's Circus was expected lure, the advertising agent, a young man who talked about "Ileb domina! pyramids of colossal ele phants, cij." was i:r here rattling away with a gift of tongue we thought seldom equaled, when lo! be hold! Parker dropped in and we com menced joking as usual. Paiker "let out" about five minutes and left. The circii3 man gaztd in admiration and exclaimed: "Well, 1 declare; il I could talk like that man, I'd boss the biggest side show in America in three months." A good purgative medicine is one of the absolunte necessities of the age. This want ha3 been supplied by Dr. J. C, Ayer & Co., w hose celebrated Ca thartic Pills are known to be the safest surest and best purgative medicine ever offered to the public. They are mild bst certain in their effects, and keep the system in good condition. Gen. Geo. Smith's House was raided a few nights ago, and things turned upside down prefty badly. Many persons will take no med icine until prostrated on a bed of sick ness. This is folly. Nature always cal's for assistance when needed to throw off impurities. With our habits ot life, it is necessary to lender this help. Prickly Ash Bitters will not force nature, but acts mildly and ren ders the assistance required. Ty them. -lt. We owe Mr. James Morrison an apology for some errors in notice of postponement of temperance meeting last week. The blunders were entirely the fault of the office and we take the whole blame. Mr. Morrison acted like a gentleman in telling us too, and didn't go to cussing and th.irging as some people do w hen an error is made. Married. HANK I X TUCK K II.

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 door ? 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 tively impure. 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 again. 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, or we are mistaken. Resolutions of Ucsprct.

Herald: Oa Wednesday of last week about 3 p. m. this section was visited by one of the worst wind and rain storms that has occurred this season. The wind blew from the not l!i west for an hour or more, sweeping everything as it went to the ground. Corn fields look as if a log had beeu rolled over them. Hay is damaged considerably by the top of the stacks blowing oft. The ram fell ia torrents; no buildings were blown down ia this immediate vicinity, but farther west we hear 6f one or two frame houses being torn to pieces, an 1 a wind mill. Four miles north and east of this the storm struck with less iury than here, the damage to the corn being slight. The ground being so wet now there will be considerable fall plowing done yet, and perhaps some fall grain sown. The storm in jured the orchards to some extent bv blowing oft what fruit there was on the trees. Mrs. Jaiv.es Wiley is out west visit ing friends and relatives. "Jimmy" is keeping bachelors Hall while Mrs. W. is absent. Mrs. Story has In. en quite sick for several days. We hear that she has been almost at the point of death for the last two davs and that her case is almost hopeless. Oscar Glaze met with a severe ac cident on Saturday by cutting his foot very badly with a spade while digging post holes. Mrs. Clara E. Campbell, from B'.air Y ashington county, is down visiting her brother and friends. She will re turn in a few days. Mrs. Dull has been nearly blind foi a week with sore eyes. Her eyes are getting better, so we hear. II. A. Ewell preached his farewell sermon vesterdav; it will he four weeks before we hear our new minis ter preach. Solomon Long came in from the new rail road yesterday where he has been at work; he reports no storm out there to amount to anything, and very little rain, Kennard and Smith will finish their contract by the 20th inst. Eddie Young returned to the rail road yesterday. Mr. John Clemmons has been very low with fever tor a week or tea days. He is slowly recovering. School commences in Rock Creek to-day. Some young folks from Rock Creek start to Franklin county this week, n visit friends there, and then they will go into Kansas for a few days. IlEI'OKTER. Grand Trairia Notes. We are enjoying pleasant weather now, aril farm work is progressing ac cordingly. Some of the farmers have started to plowing since the rain of last week, though a few had been plow ing. D. I). Andrus had about filty acres plowed before the rain. Wheat ia this vicinity averages from five to twelve bushels per acre; oats from thirty to fifty per acre. The cora crop will ha light, but many farmers are couiuiug on a big price for their cora. Quite a number of the ex-soldiers of this community will a,tend the Re Union at Lincvln this week. Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Coon and child have been very sick, but are now able to be about, though still very weak. Mr. G. W.Boulon's baby has also been sick, but s better. Mr. Simon Uanamire has built a nice house on his farm and is now occupying the same. He was married last Sunday, Aug. 28, and on Thursday evening the boys ser enaded the couple. Mr. Win. Lanham has the lumber on the ground for a new house, which he will erect and move into this fall. Our school is now iu progress under the chaige of II. W. Zink.

The reason why women are everywpere using and recommending Parker's Gin ger Tonic is, because they have learn ed by thai best of guides experience that this excellent family medicine speedily overcomes despondency, peri odical headache, indigestion, liver complaints, pain or weakness in the back and kidneys, and other troubles peculiar to the sex.

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.

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.

He was a monstrous big black bear, weigh ing, perhaps, 400 or moro pounds. liradford (Pa.) Era. 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. c 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 bition. It is only rarely that a. good specimen is captured. It is six feet four iuches long, bluish-black above, with violet or greenish rctle-tious, and white beneath. A large band of Nev England spins ters are preparing to go west, and a knowledge of that fact is having a powerful influence in directing tho tide of emigration toward the southern "States. - i SPECIAL NOTICES.
