A PERSONAL LETTER.
Plattsmouth, Dec. 16, 1881
Ed. Enterprise: Since coming to
your city I have been informed that
an alleged newspaper in this city
some time since published an article
copied from the Juniata Herald, in
which certain charges were made
against me. At the time the article
was published I was absent in Illi
nois, and upon my return regarded the
article too absurd to answer. But as
it has been published here, I deem it
best lo say the whole statiment Is
absolutely false, and if any such letter
ever existed, purporting to be mine,
it was a forgery. The motives that
led to its publication the people easily
J. B. Finch.
ditto as to iieadlxo.
Plattsmouth, Dec. 19th, 1881.
To Ourselves: Since the last is
sue of this paper, we have been in
formed that an. "alleged" Temperasce
Reformer of some notoriety hi the
state and of alleged bad moral char
acter, by some of his temperance
friends, came to towrn and endeavored
to edit both the other papers, one with
fist and tongue, and the other as above.
As the Irishman said to the mule when
he put his foot in the stirrup; "Faix,
if you're goin' to git on your own back
I'm goin' to get off". If the alleged
Temperance Reformer is going to
edit all the papers in the state the
same way perhaps we'd better get
down and give him a chance.
The articles describing his advent
in Mr. Sherman's offic as published
irr the Journal , if true, make his con
duct too absurd for the Herald to
answer; but as it was published here
in our absence, for the day, we deem
it best t t-ay that, whether the Jour
nal man made a mistake or vol in the
first place, the alleged Temperance
Reformer made a most lamentable
one, for the temperance cause in his
The original charges were fast dy
ing out and being obliterated bv the
kindly hand of time, This unwar
ranted assault brings the whole mat
ter fresh to mind.
Neither does it seem proper that
a reformer, alleged or otherwise should
use the language attributed to our
reformer, and it may be that the re
port is a"forgery". If so, just consider
this whole article unwritten.
The motives for treating this mat
ter thusly, can be located or left un
located as each of our readers may in
A Nocturnal Ramble and What Came
Some genius we suspect him ty be
long to the jevial order of humanity
has said: "The day to drone and dream
tho night to learn and ramble." We
do not propose to dispute this worthy's
view of the matter, but present here
with the experience of a Philadelphia
journalist, Mr. William II. Cunning
ton. 1712 North Twentieth struet, one
of whose nocturnal rambles he thus
refers to, beginning his narration
rather peculiarly, however: "I am not
a rheumatic, and have been troubled
very little with bodily pains. Last
Tuesday morning I experienced a very
annoying stiffness of the neck, which
grew worse as the day wore n. To
ward evening it became very severe,
and I could scarcely turn my head in
any direction. Arriving home at tea
time, it was with dilhculty that I
could eat my meal. My wife wanted
to rub my neck with St. Jacobs Oil,
but I refused, saying I thought the
afiiiction would soon pass away. Tea
over, against the reianstrances of my
family, I left home to ranble toward
the new Chestnut-Streei Opera House,
about two and a-half miles from my
residence. I started in the midst of a
heavy snow storm, and remained ;.t
the theatre until the close of the per
formance, although I could feel my
neck getting worse and becoming very
painful. Leaving the play the trouble
camo to reach home. The storm con
tinued; the car in which I was became
blocked in nearly every square, a cold
current air swep through the c-uv, and
audi did not reach home until toward
3 A. M., by which time my neck had
become absolutely rigid. Then I c -n-sented
to the use of St. Jacobs Oil,
which my wif applied two or ihree
times before I arwse. I continued its
use that day and by evening I w;s
free from pain, and the nxt morning
I amused mysalf by twisting my neck
in any direction that suited me, and
not a vestige of stiffness remained."

"I had been sick and miserable so
long, and had caused my husband so
much trouble and expense, no one
seemed to know what ailed me, that I
was completely d'sheartencd and dis
couraged. In this frame of mind I got
a bottle of Hop Bitters and used them
unknown to my family. I soon began
to improve and gained so fast that my
husband and family thought it strange
and unnatural, but when I told them
what had helped me they sai-1 'Hurrah
