vicinity of Bladen?
Why read dime novels, attend mov
ing picture shows, or talk of Tuft utid
Teddy, when there arc thrills upon
thrills right here at homo?
Two mouths ago, Joseph Hciurichs,
an old resident of Webster county,
near Bladen was living a life of ordin
ary tranquility, undisturbed by any
thing suvo his hourly thirst forutnoth

Pased from sodden stupor to awak
ening horror, from horror to happiuei-s,
ami from happiness to stupor, Mr.
Heimich's hours weio rythmlcally
employed' innocuously to every one
save himself and his neglected family.
Somewhere in Omaha, at the same
time, a lady occupied quarters ou
Farnham or Douglas street in Omaha
and was engaged in an occupation not
clearly elucidated on the trial.
Through the medium of a newspaper
advertisement these two' lives began
to flow io a common direction. Onthe
8th., day of this mouth a wedding
ceremony was performed and two
hearts began to beat with widely diff
ering thoughts. The good people of
llladen were indignant at the prospect
ive robbery of Heinrlch's family. This
indignation wa quickened by tiie ar
rival of another stranger from Omaha,
this time a man, who appeared in the
guise of a brother, half-brother, or
other relative of the bride, arid atonce
assumed h protective interest in her
welfare. He came witli h physical
demonstration that threatened trouble
to anybody who might presume to in
terfere in the marital prosperity of
the newly wedded woman.
A conversation between the stranger
pair wab overheard In which the son
of Joseph Hoinrlohs, Frank, a young
man twenty-four years of ago, was
marked out for a general carving pro
cess, which would make lire for him
an affair of immortal Interest only.
On Monday the precious pair drove
to lllue flill and attempted to sell the
young mail's team, claimed to be a
wedding preseut from the father to
ills bride. The team was repleviued
from them at the suit of Frank Hein
rlchs, the fjon, and liernaid McNeuy
was hastily summoned to Hladcn.
Events began to move with celerity.
On Tuesday afternoon Sheriff Hedge
appealed upon tho scene, aud by Tuo--day
night, the bride groom, the bride,
and her imported protector, were all
safely lodged in tho county jail, Wed
nesday the bride and her foreign ally
wero bound over to tho next term of
the district com l in the sum of one
thousand dollais each, and con fined to
jail until tho bond should he foith
coming. Joseph Holurlohs, the bride
groom, was declared a fit subject for
the itisauu asylum, aud peace spreads
her gently brooding wings over the
quiet people of llladen.
"Ad d good job of railroading,"
was the remark of the imported bounc
er, as the Jail doors swung behind him
and his partner in adventure.

ATrut Story lor Mothers,
by a Mothtr
Long before I was married 1 thought
oat carefully what I would do with a
boy of my own if I ever had one. I
theorized a good deal, as most women
do. Theit by and by I faced the prac
tical side of the matter, for by and by
there was a boy to cull me "Mother."
If the environment of this boy of my
theories had been as Idosl as my theor
ies for the boy himself, there never
would have been n bit of difficulty;
but the inevitable happened. As he
grew older, he went witli other boys,
of course, and took on their wuys.
He was getting to be twelve years
old. He gave mo respect and the
obedience which I lequired of him;
but for pure satisfaction and delight
lie turned where but to his own
I, for all my theories aud wisdom,
for 1 hud thought und lived much, and
I am generally called a clever woman,
fotiud myself finally pitted against a
handful of boys who, witli no experi
ence, no wisdom, had yet become my
boy's demagogues und models.
He would go from me whistling, his
hands in his pockets, his cap on the
back of his head, happy enough.
But as he got further away his steps
quickened. Ily the time lie leached
the gate, he was lilting along with an
air of positive gaiety. Then the gate
banged; and, as though tho last fetter
had snapped, he would pull Ids cap
down securely, pick up his legs, give it
catcall or u boys' whoop of some sort,
aud tear down the street to join his
"crowd" in u world of their own. It
was a rough world, too, Heaven knows;
full of the averuge boy's vices aud
crudities rough speaking, uuclean
chinking, braggadocios, horseplay,
cruelties, and mistakes. There was
good in it too, of course, of ite own
kind. Hut there were in it, too, the
usual "Bully," the usual Braggart,
the usual Rowdy; and thore was in
plenty that general lawlessness which
among boys passes for manliness.
Above all, there was the inevitable
clan spirit, that native loyalty that
binds every boy of auv purtiuulur
"crowd" to his crowd, be the crowd
goorl or bad.
Tlie "linlly" was held up to me us a
heio; the Howdy as inexpressibly
fuuiiy; the iiiuggurt us wise, uud to be
respected above the rest, (lod save
the mark! They slapped my boy on
tho buck, uud he cairled his shoulders
straighten They called him "Micky
Mike" (his name was Michael Farraday),
aud ho thought it excruciatingly
funuy, and delighted in it more than
In any praise or appiovul of mine.
They sometimes called him by his last
name, aud lie was secretly glorified; a
man in all but years, lie carried
their hoarse shouting approval like a
distinction and a reward. As the days
went on, und these boys influenced
him more and more, there was In the
whole situation sufllcient danger and
promise of disaster.
Oh, 1 thought over it enough, prayed
over it enough, and studied the whole
question thoroughly, you may be sure.
1 thought of secretly getting some sort
of club organized; of appealing to the
boys' public school teacher to help me
with It. I thought, too, of getting tho
uiil of our family physician, a mail
who hud always hud the boy's Interests
at heart. I thought these men might
bo got to warn and lustruct these boys
us I could not. 1 thought of a club to
meet itt our house uud to have my open
sympathy; but 1 wus not so dull as to
cling long to that iiiadcqiiulu plan.
It was just at this tinio that, there
fell into my handssome people would
say providentially it little pamphlet
called, "Tho Boy Scout Scheme." It
told all about the orgunlution, well
known and much exploited sluco that
time "The Hoy Scouts of America." 1
I took the pamphlet to my room,
after the Hoy was In bed, and studied
it from cover to cover, as Columbus

might have studied n map of the new
world, could he have gotten his hands
ou such n thing.
The pamphlet hud veiy little about
mothers In it; significantly little. It
dealt direct with the bay's world and
interests. The boy's home was not
once, I think mentioned In it, but
there was a deal about "scoutciaft,"
"woodcraft," "camporaft," aud tho
like, words I had never put together
before, aud something, too, about
I pored over it. but I did not let the
Hoy know this. On the contrary, 1
gave it to him the next mornlug with
little show of interest., "Hcie is a
pamphlet that was snnt me to adver
tise the "Hov Scouts," I said; "but you
will probably understand it better
tlpm I do."
I saw his eye run over the lines. In
a moment he was absorbed In it.
Here whs something to which his ting
ers fell familiar. He tin tied the pages
u good deal, us you or I might feel a
piece of silk or linen to judge of the
That afternoon when he joined the
"gang, ' there went with him the

We aie t-oou to celebrate tho until
veisuryof the birth of this nation.
Old uud young alike all recognize the
Importance of this occasion and are nil
titled with lovnlty and enthusiasm
that prompts us to show our apprecia
tion of the privileges that we enjoy by
reason of the bravery and sua Itlces
displayed by our forefathers.
There is a solemn duty devolving u;
on every citizen of this state to see to
it that nothing occurs on this occasion
that will mar the festivities or bring
reproach upon the good judgement
and intelligence of its citizens.
Inventive genius is furnishing the
toy pistol, fire cracker, roman candle,
sky rocket and other explosive means
of celebrating the occasion, aud eveiy
anniversary of the nation's birth is
blotted either with the death or Injury
of hundreds of children und a lesser
'number of grown people from these
deuth dealing manufactured imple
ments that Hre being sold by Healers
to children and people who handle
and discharge them carelessly. It
seems strange that a merchant for the
cuke of making u little profit will
handle and sell these deadly explosives
to children: and what looks stranger
still is that the fathers and mothers
and older people that know what the
result of the careless handling of these
explosives is will continue year after
year to countenance or permit it. It

is the duty of every father and mother
us well us every other citizen to warn
the children and uninformed of tho
dangers attending these explosives, so
that the number of killed and Injured
will be reduced to such an extent that
the anniversary of the" nation's 'birth
will not be tho anniversary of the
death or permanent injury of the boys
and girls and cltizons who either
through Ignorance of tho danger or
over confidence, purchase aud dis
charge these deadly explosives that
will not only destroy valuable property,
bid life itself, if given au opportunity.
