Washington correspondence of
tho Omaha Bee intimates a comprom

doing some of their grading. The
proposition to relet the bids because
a "non-resident" secured the contract,
is pronounced by tho lice a little thin.

A late number of the American
Volunteer, published at Carlisle, Pa.,
has au extended account of our ven
erable friend John Elliott of this
city, that docs him great credit as a
soldier of the war with Mexico, and
as a man among his first friends and
neighbors. John Elliott, the writer
says, was the model hero for all the
boys who knew him, after "he came
home from the wars."
Mr. Pollock, the signal service
officer at Omaha, says, "We have had

We have already had far more 6now

years. I think it beats the record."

A good deal of surprise and in
terest was created in the community
last week by news of the existence in
the city of a case of hysteria catalepsy,
very similar to that with which Miss
Minnie Dishner, of Columbus, was
lately afflicted. Miss Mattie Lucas,
a young lady of abont seventeen, at
tending onr public schools, retired to
her bed Thursday evening complain
ing of sickness, and the next morn
ing was fonnd by her sister, Mrs.
Geo. Davidson, in an apparently un
conscious condition. A physician
was at once summoned, and the case
found to be as we have stated. Miss
Lucas' symptoms have answered very
closely to those of the somewhat
notable case which we have quoted.
During a part of her sickness she
called occasionally the names of re
latives and friends, and would oc
casionally beckon to those whom she
seemed to perceive at a distance. At
other times she became nnable to
move or to manifest any sign of con
sciousness, and would remain in any
position in which she was placed,
although, as Bhe has since stated, she
was generally aware of what was
going on aronnd her. At these
periods any conversation calculated
to excite her emotions, which would
perhaps be quite lively in a case of
this kind, wonld bring tears to her
eyes in great profusion. Nourish
ment was given her occasionally,
through the means of liquid food,
which was placed in her month in
such a way as to excite the action of
swallowing. Last Monday evening,
however, to the great relief of her
friends and all concerned, she awaked
from her protracted sleep, having
been nnder its influence abont
ninety-six hours. The case has
naturally attracted a good deal of at
tention, although all will be glad to
learn that apprehensions need be no
longer maintained. Central City

At George Yale's stand on Olive
street, may be seen one of the best
patent fences manufactured. Messrs.
Williams & Gates, the proprietors,
have established a factory here, and
will soon canvass tho county in the
interest of their enterprise. In brief,
it consists of pickets four feet in
length, 1. inches wide and inches
thick, woven at short intervals be
tween five pairs of galvanized wire
the five pairs of wires being twisted
between the pickets to hold them
solid. One can not well imagino a fence
made of pine pickets and wire that
could bo stronger for the expense than
this is, and it combines all the good
qualities of a fence strength, cheap
ness, durability, attractiveness to the
eye, no injury to 6tock, easy to repair.
Don't build any fence without seeing
this. Call at the factory or address

The people of Milford have got
themselves into a muss over their
water works. It seems that after the
water works had been built, the
bonds which were to pay for them
were found to be illegal, and a new
election was called, to vote other
bonds. In the meantime the water
works collapsed, and when the elec
tion came off the bonds were defeated.
Thereupon the contractors, Cocklin
& Noakes, sued the village for 1999.99,
and the case will be tried before
Judge Lowley on the 12th. It will
doubtless be an interesting case.

plainly and distinctly, is a lesson and
a moral taught by a recent mistake
in the Journal. Another point
found out is this: The Journal is
not a small, obscure local little rag of
a thing, but a papor of largo and ex
tensive circulation. Now to the mis
take: The Journal reported a few
weeks ago that Rev. A. Henrich had
gone to Denver on a visit, but he had
only gono to Glenville, Neb., but
mark the result ! His son and daugh
ter, residing in Denver, Colorado,
went to the depot again and again to

to find out what had become of him.
