embracing vinos. They sleep beneath
tbe shadow of the 'clouds, careless alike
of the sunshine or of storm, each in the
windowless palace of rest. Eatth may

roar of conflict, they fouad the serenity
of death. I have one sentiment for the
soldiers living and dead cheers for the
living and tears for the dead.

Two convicts in the penitentiary
from Wyoming Territory, engaged in a
fight one day last week, and according to
the Lincoln Journal, would not desist
until fired upon several times by the
guard, and one named O'Brien fatally
wounded. They are both said to be bad
men. This circumstaace leads us to re
mark that it wems a little trange that
whenever a convict who is considered a
'dangerous character' is confined In
that penitentiary he is very soon fchot
and killed upon some pretext or other.
There has been considerable excite
ment awifested in the towns between
Beatrice and Red Cloud during the past
week. The presence of Chief Engineer
Ainsworth, between the points with his
surveying party has caused a ripple of
excitement, but the climax was scarcely
reached when nothing could be seen or
heard of them. No doubt the B. & M.
intend to build the line between Brown
Tille and Red Clomd to the caet line of
tfickoue county, the present season as
Mr. Touzalin has himself said. But the
exact line ii a matter of deep interest to
almost every eitixea on the route, and to
be) kept m stfpMse m cxcmoiating.
