year. Do let us have a few trees
planted this year in season to secure
their growth. A little effort a lit

BOYS MISTAKE POISON FOR FOOO.
One of Them Barely Escapes Death.
On Saturday last news ran like
wildfire through the town that sev
eral bo)s who had been at the river
fishing, had unthoughtedly eaten
of some straugc roots and been pois
oned. There were all manner of
versions of the story, but wo believe
the followiug facts, as given us by
Dr.C. B. Stillman, will be fouud to
contain the case in a nut shell : Wil
lie Luman, son of II. C. Lumau, is a
lad some nine or ten years old. He
was in company with four other
boys, Harvy Ellis, Thos. Loveland,
Fred nnd Ernest Mullen. They
were spending the day at
the Loup river, south of
town, fishing, and, getting huugry.
ate some artichokes aud rosebuds,
as they thought. It is supposed,
however, that young Luman got
hold of6ome wild parsnips or bclla
douua berries, or both, as subse
quent facts all went to prove that
some very strong poison had entered
his system. At the river he became
sick, vomited some, and shortly be
came so unconscious as not to an
swer the other boy?' questions or
take any notice of them whatever.
Somehow or other the young lads
succeeded iu getting young Luman
into the city, and at Gross's store he
was put into Dr. Bonsteel's buggy
and taken to tho residence of his
parents. Dr. Stillman was called
in to assist, and the stomach pump
was used with good effect. How
ever, the poison had such possession
of the system, that convulsions did
not cease till toward night of Satur
day. By Sunday eveniug he had so
far recovered from the effects of the
poison as to be conscious of what
waa passing, and to converse ration
ally, but the transactions of Satur
day were yet blank to him.
The question, Would it be for
the best interests of the State of
Nebraska to prohibit by law the
manufacture, sale and use of spirit
uous, malt or vinous liquors for a
beverage? was again discussed last
Monday evening at the Opera House
by E. L. Sherman and Win. Burgess
in the affirmative, nnd C. A. Speicc
and J. G. Higgins on the negative.
The gentlemen engaged iu the de
bate made very fair arguments iu
support of the question, pro and con.
Mr. Speice on the negative present
ed the strongest practical point on
that side of the question, that it
would not be just aud right and for
the best interests of the State to
legislate thousands upon thousands
of dollars now legally invested, out
of the bauds cf men engaged in the
traffic, and ruin them financially.
Perhaps it should have been re
plied by the affirmative that the
measure could be prepared to have
a gradual operation and thus let out
the dealers, but it was met with an
extreme case, to pull down the house
at once, to keep the lire from spread

fully alarming, the average of life
being lessened every year, without
any reasonable cause, death result

the year especially, a cold is such a
common thing that in the hurry of

look the dangers attending it and
often find too late, that a Fever or
Lung trouble has already set in.
Thousands lose their lives In this
