The bodies of Frank Morehead

They were both scalped. The body
of Morehead was taken to Dunlap,
Iowa, for interment, and thut of
Ashbaugh was buried at the, cem
etry, this city.
John Tuunahill and John Wig
gins have traded farms. Tanuahill
has already taken possession of his
3 acres iu the eastern part of the
city, aud will continue there his old
busiuess of raising vegetables aud
seeds for sale. Being thoroughly
trustworthy, Mr. Tanuahill has suc
ceeded in establishing a first-class
reputation as a dealer, and in time
will doubtless reap a rich harvest.
Mr. Wiggins congratulates himself
upon the possession of one of the
best little farms iu the country.
When the swallows come we
naturally think that balmy days will
follow, and when the vender of
cheap jewelry comes we naturally
look to see some person duped, and
are not often mistaken. On Mon
day, the cheap jewelry man was
here and many were his victims,
but he met one woman who raised
his hopes high only to dash them to
earth, aud leave him a poor discon
solate pcddlar "all forlorn." She
invested, then repented, then went
for the pcddlar aud persuaded him
to swap the money she had invested
for the jewelry she had bought. It
was a lively discussion, but he
Have you homestead rights or
timber claims you wish to dispose
of? Uuve you bought railroad lands
aud are unable to meet your pay
ments? Have you improved or un
improved deeded lands you wish to
sell? If so place the disposal of the
same in the hands of Becchcr &
Reynolds of this city. Being the
General agents for B. & M. R. R.
lands, large numbers of persons from
the east correspond with or make
personal application to them in re
gard to lands. 2fow is the time to
dispose of your lands, as the tide of
immigration has already set in, and
a great number of land buyers from
the east will be in this county dur
ing tho present month.
A convention is to be held at
the Graud Pacific, Chicago, March
17th, in the interests of immigration,
and the settlement of the great west.
There will be delegates from all
parts, of the States interested. The
Catholic Bishop here has appointed
Rev. Fathers Ryan and Smith of
Platte county to represent Nebraska
at the convention, and it is to be
hoped that great good will result
from their deliberations. Father
Ryan has long been in the harness,
knows tho needs of the country
thoroughly and has always taken a
lively interest in immigration mat
ters. Father Smith is younger by
far, but has an excellent head on his
shoulders, and will make a good
member of the convention.
George Rieder has removed his
grocery from Nebraska Avenue to
Eleventh street, and will hereafter
ocenpy the ucw brick building be
tween Dr. Heintz's drug-store and
Gerber's furniture store. Geo. has
been very successful in business
here, and well deserves it because
he is considerate and obliging, and
besides, furnishes excellent goods at
living rates. He desires it to be
understood that he wishes to see all
his old customers at the new place,
together with as many new ones as
will thus honor him. George is not
one of those particular kind of indi
viduals that will talk only in one
tongue, but will 'speak to you in
English, German, Swiss or well
we don't know how many other
languages ho knows, '
Justice, Bateman & Co.,of Phil
adelphia, iu their circular of March
1st, say : "The wool market of Feb
ruary is moderately active. Prices
of all qualities were firm. The light,
open medium wools or those im
proved by meriuo crosses are iu
most request, aud bcarce; prices for
the latter showed considerable buoy
aucy. The London auctions now
progressing for the colonial wools
opened quite too high to admit of
importations to America, and our
markets are unaffected by .it. We
think the future of the wool busi
ness presents encouraging features.
The severe cold weather of the past
wiuter has caused larger consump
tion of wool goods than for several
years, which undoubtedly will en
courage the running of all the
woolen machinery now in motion.
At this season of the year territorial
wools are scarce, and very good
prices can be had for all good lots
as fast as they arrive."

This is the heading to a partial
price-list just printed by us for
Messrs. Ja3ggi & Schupbach. Our
young friends but recently entered
the lists ns dealers iu lumber, and
are ambitious enough to throw down
the gauutlet aud defy competition in
prices. It takes time to accomplish
great moves, but they have taken
the time, aud they authorize us to
say that their prices are fearfully
and wonderfully low for central Ne
braska. Such prices wero never
before kuowu here, and these gen
tlemen deserve the thanks of the
community for bringing them down
to the very bed-rock, which will eu
able every man to make desired im
provements. Cheap lumber has
been the crying want of the country
heretofore, and we are glad to know
that that want is now supplied.

Barrett, who was present, we gather
some facts in regard to the school
and the district. The Board, con

Peter Wheeler, Treasurer, and Mr.
Loscy, Moderator, take a very lively
interest in school matters. Every
facility for teaching, and for the
comfort and convenience of the
children, is provided. Mr. Barrett
reviewed the classes on Friday last,
aud was well pleased with the
school, lie pays the parents of the
district a high compliment in say
ing that there were more of them
present on tho occasion mentioned

the other schools besides.
