counties. He thinks he may purchase

his family here.
A respectable married lady of the
city was roughly assaulted by a couple
of men near the U. P. depot the
other evening. Their actions plainly
indicated the brutal intent of the ruf
fians, and its a pity they did not fall
into the hands of the police or meet
summary punishment from some
other source. The ladie's cries of
alarm brought a couple of small boys
jo her aid and the rascals fled.

The supreme court of the state
recently decided iu the case of Ives

Under this ruling where are juries to

We believe the fact that A. H.
Xeidig had permanently located his

house, which he is fitting up for a
nice, comfortable home.
A letter from J. A. Baker, Gol

Wednesday last tho little child of
Isaac Morau of this city fell into an
old well hole containing about three
feet of water and was drowned. The
child is supposed to have suddenly
been taken with a spasm, as on Mon
day previous to its death it fell into
a wash boiler full of water, aud after
wards was taken with spasms, but
apparently, ou the day of its death
had recovered its usual health. The
child was two years old. The burial
occurred Thursday laBt.
County treasurer, J. W. Early,
was at Lincoln last week to mako tho
annual settlement for Platte county
with the slate auditor. Platte county
puts into the state treasury for the
eleven months intervening between
Nov. 1st, S1 aud Oct. lbt, '82, in round
numbers, $21,315. The settlement
with counties is called a month ear
lier this year than has heretofore been
the custom, in order to give the state
officials time to complete their work
by the close of the year.
The southern part of the state is
said to be infested by a new kind of
swindlers, and their plan of operation
is similar to the cloth peddler that
farmers in all parts of the state have
had experience with some of them
to their sorrow. They are engaged
in selling staple articles of groceries
at what are supposed to be greatly
reduced prices, taking notes for the
same and selling the notes at the banks
at a big discount. Of course the
goods are of inferior quality.
Turner's friends need not get
alarmed for his political safety in the
county. The efforts of his speech
making opponents so far, in as much as
tbey have confined themselves to
mud slinging, with which they expect
to smirch his reputation as a citi
zen, will have about as much effect as
the lonesome bay of a bob-tailed cur
on the moon. If they really want a
rough-and-tumble, dirty tussle they
might be accommodated by import
ing a few ring or corporation tools.
Turner's following isn't composed of
A visit to the store of I. J. Slat
tery will convince any person that
one of the finest stocks in the western
counties is arranged on its shelves
and counters. A variety of school
text-books is kept constantly on
hand, and arrangements can be made
by districts desiring to supply their
schools, at greatly reduced prices.
Teachers can here examine the latest
issues and become familiar with the
many series used in the county. Ma
terials for drawing and aids in teach
ing, are included in the wants of every
live teacher, and may be procured at
moderate prices. Stationery of all
kinds, which will be found satisfac
tory to the many customers of this
establishment, is kept; also sundries
too numerous to mention, among
which may be named, slates, toys,
periodical literature, cigars, candies
etc. Mr. Slattery is also engaged in
the sale of the Domestic sewing ma
chine, the very best for family use.
None other can excel it in rauge and
character of work performed. Any
thing wanted in his line, if not in
stock, will be ordered on short notice.
Call and examine goods and prices.
Persons desiring the American
Agriculturist, the leading agricultural
journal of the world, can subscribe for

and obtain it for one year post paid.
At Anderson & Roen's bank the
other day we were shown a specimen
of the new national bank issue, the
first that we have seen, and which
these gentlemen will soon be duly
chartered to put into circulation. It
does not strike us as being so attrac
tive in appearance as the old style of
bill with the greenback, being a brown
back with the exception of a center
fccroll iu green, tho ground work for
the charter number of the bank. The
face of the bill is in black with theU.
S. seal in brown in the right hand
lower corner. A portrait of Garfield
occupies the full width of the bill
within the border of the left end.
Experts say it is a much harder bill
to counterfeit than the old style.
Woman suffrage meetings have
been announced by the committee for
different parts of the county as fol
lows: Postville school house, Thurs
day, Oct. 19; Humphrey, Friday, Oct.
20; Naylor school house, Butler pre
cinct, Saturday, Oct. 21; Wattsville,
Tuesday, Oct. 24; Creston church,
Wednesday, Oct. 25 ; Truman school
house, Thursday, Oct. 26; Galley
school house, Friday, Oct. 27; Colum
bus, Saturday, Oct. 28, all at 7 p. m.
The circular making the announce
ment says that one or two meetings
will be held in this city during the
campaign and that a number of prom
inent speakers will be sent to this
county and from Columbus will be
sent to different places, impossible as
yet to name.
The motto, "Nearer my God, to
Thee," hanging on the wall in a land
agent's office doesn't seem to agree
with the Genoa Leader editor's idea
of consistency, and be comments in a
humorous style about seeing such a
motto in the office of Speice & North
in this city. There is no such a
motto there, for we looked for it. We
have known men under certain con
ditions to see snakes and many disa
greeable things, but never before
heard that religious mottoes got into
the imagination. However, about the
consistency question that need not
be discussed. No one will disagree
with the Leader man that such a
motto on the walls of his office, news
paporial or land agency, would knock
the "eternal fitneBs" of things very
much out of shape.
The Genoa Leader devotes about
a quarter of a column of its space in
its laRt issue to windy slush calculated
to reflect on the personal character of
M. K. Turner. The ridiculousness of
the charge, notwithstanding its libel
ous nature and intent, does not entitle
it to consideration. We are very
much mistaken in Mr. T. E. Saunders
if he would sanction 6uch a use of
his name. It is a great pity that
newspaper men of this stripe imag
ine that they are called upon to
inflict upon their readers lies, dirty
personalities and misrepresentations,
the only stock in trade which
their capacity and own moral
characters fit them to handle when
they have anything to say of a polit
ical nature. Better not say anything,
as the cause they profess to champion
is only injured with fair-minded hon
est men ; and when they assume that
the masses of voters are duped by
them, or that their actions are not
despised by honest men, they make a
mistake. If the actions of such could
inspire any other feeling than disgust
the cause tbey attempt to aid would
be injured rather than helped. As
we said before, the charge against
Turner is of no consequence, and
was only put in as coloring for the
mess of taffy that was intended for
old soldiers about Valentine's great
love for them. It's in the character of
a veteran soldier to admire an open,

replied in a speech occupying about
half an hour'in favor of M. K. Turner
for congress, the regular nominee,
