The clerical swindler who eonfi
denced the Central City bank some
weeks ago was caught in New York by
Pinkerton's detectives. It seems that
Pinkerton could make nothing of the
case until he got a description of the
man from a newspaper paragraph. He
then recognized an old offender, a man
who had been released from the Illinois
state penitentiary a short time since. It
is best to publish all such escapades

In the case of Dr. D. P. Shevlin
against the village of Platte Center for

wliich came up before Jndge Cowdery,
of Columbus, a judgment was rendered
in his favor of $55.00, the plaintiff pay
ing cost of about $20.00 out of a claim of
$63.00. The village had simply "referred"
his account to be itemized before pass
ing upon it. Even at $55.00, his charges
were exhorbitant, and there is some
probability of an appeal being taken.
Hon. O. A. Abbott of Grand Island
passed through the city Saturday on his
way to O'Neill. He has lived in Ne
braska twenty years, and, like all the
rest of us, has unbounded confidence in
the future of the state. He had recently
been at Broken Bow, Custer county, a
comparatively new town but a lively,
solid sample of what the newer portions
of the commonwealth can do in these
latter years brick blocks and dwelling
houses comparing very favorably with
cities of greater pretentions.
E. O. Glines, living on the John Ey
man farm six miles west of Platte Center,
came to the city Wednesday of last
week with his boy,and since 4 o'clock of
that day nothing can be heard of him.
He had $80 or $90 in money and it is
feared he has met foul play. He is a
heavy-set man,weighs about 200 pounds,
medium height, with chin whiskers, and
is about 45 years old. He left his boy at
the train, telling him he would take a
later one. His wife was in the city Mon
day, and knows of no reason why he
should leave home.

near Custer, and he says that the valua
ble metal is being put out there in fine
shape. An English syndicate represent
ing $10,000,000 with $2,000,000 paid up,
has been formed, and are getting every
thing in readiness for very active opera
tions. That section of country has tin
in very great abundance, and it is only a
question of a few years when the im
portance of this wonderful foundation
of wealth and prosperity will be made
manifest to everybody.
Editor Journal: As yon have pub
lished what purports to be a paragraph
from a Denver paper concerning me, I
wish to say this: that I did marry Her
man Schitterer, but against my own will.
My mother compelled me to do so. I
was but fifteen years old at the time.
While living in Denver, Mr. S. com
menced keeping the company of other
women and gambling, coming home
abusing me like a dog, and not providing
me with provisions'for the house. I did
get a divorce from him, but did not
marry again. Notwithstanding my com
pliance with my mother's will, I have,
through the wicked talk of others lost
my mother's love and today, where I was
once known and had many good friends,
I now have none. When one's own
mother believes the ill that others tell
and puts her child away from her it is
pretty hard to bear. Here I am, sick,
with my babe to care for and support,
when, if it was not for people's vile talk,
I might be with my mother today.
The Lake and Ice project promises
to be a good thing in many respects, for
the city. The young are to have an ex
cellent place for amusement, summer
and winter, fish are to be raised, and a
crop of ice, good and solid, during the
winter. Inquiries are being made from
other portions of the state as to the
success of Mr. Arnold's project; the
State Fish Commission are interested in
results and ask for a report. It may be
the means in helping to call greater
attention throughout the state to the
profit there is in fish culture. If so, it
will be of general benefit, for Nebraska
streams and artificial ponds, well stocked
with fish, means considerable towards
the general welfare.
Hall & Turner now have the right
to manufacture and sell the Marak Ra

using them placing the saving at 40 to
50 per cent. The firm have had difficul

sickness of the contractor,but they think
now that within ten days they can

For a family to find a father and hus

and lots of other things, including a
nice line of Christmas goods were never

THE OMAHA WEEKLY BEE.
A Magaileeat Seleetioa or Preniiatfl to be
Awarded to Sabaerlbern How the Pab
liflher or the Bee Dtrtribate a Large Naa
ber or Valuable Premiims Among Their
The publishers of the Bee are this season offer
ing its patrons the largest and most Taloable list
of premiums that has ever been awarded by them.
For the past seTen years the Bee has annnally
distributed among its patrons a large number of
Taloable and useful articles, increasing the num
ber and Talue each year as the number of sub
scribers increased. This system was first inaug
urated by the publishers about eight-'years ago as
the means of collecting back pay, securing
renewals and increasing the circulation of the
Bee. In this it proved a success. Several thou
sand dollars back dues were collected which
would otherwise have been almost entirely lost
or expended in enforcing collections through
agentti or attorneys, and the subscription list was
increased from 3,500 to over 35,000 in seven years.
Each successive year a larger number of sub-
scribers was secured and the list of premiums
was proportionally increased.
During the first year only a small portion of
the articles distributed were procured in ex
change for advertising. When the marked in
crease in the circulation became known to the
merchants and manufacturers, they willingly
offered their goods and machinery in exchange
for advertising. In this manner a very valuable
selection of premiums was secured, with a com
parative small outlay of cash. Almost all the
more valuable urticles are obtained in this way.
Nearly the only outlay in cash made is for the
minor premiums, such as books, cutlery, etc.
These are purchased at the very lowest wholesale
rates in very large quantities. In this way it is
made possible to award such a magnificent lot 6f
premiums to subscribers, and send each the
laier for one ear for the price of two dollars.
The following is a partial list of the article to
be awarded at tho next distribution:
80 acres of fine land in Colfax Co., Ne
braska, valued at $1,200 00
One Omaha city lot 700 00
One Aultman &. Taylor thretthing ma
chine 685 00
One Heilman threshing machine 665 00
One celebrated Weber upright piano. . 656 00
Four parlor organs valued at from fll5 to 175 00
One Registered Holstein bull MX) 00
One Jersey bull calf 100 00
And a large variety of valuable implements,
live stock, guns, watched, household goods, etc.,
etc., valued in all at over $18,500.
The old patrons of the Bee need no assurance
of the stability and reliability of the paper, nor
do they need to be informed of the principles it
advocates, the fearless defense it makes in behalf
of the producers and uncompromising opposi
tion to corporate monopolies. It is almost
indispensable to the industrial classes of the

Drunkenness or the Liquor Habit Positively
Cured by Administering Dr. Haines'
It can be given in a cup of coffee or
tea without the knowledge of the person
taking it; is absolutely harmless and
will effect a permanent and speedy cure,
whether the patient is a moderatedrink
er or an alcoholic wreck. Thousands of
drunkards have been made temperate
men who have taken Golden Specific in
their coffee without their knowledge,and
today believe they quit drinking of their
own free will. IT NEVER FAILS. The
system once impregnated with the
Specific it becomes an utter impossibil
ity for the liquor appetite to exist. For

The Grand Island Independent must
have been roused by something that it
overheard, as witness:
"Men don't get rich who spend seven
days in the week whining and squirting
tobacco juice at a crack in the sidewalk,
while they are holding down a dry goods
box on some corner. Hustle, rustle,
grab the but end of the first opportunity
and lift yourself out of the quagmire of
hard times, but don't sit around and
croak. Grand Island don't need any
such snivling sidewalk whiners. If you
don't like our town get up energy
enough to draw your shiftless carcass to
some town you do like."
Brown: Where did you get that
Smith: I got it at the Fire Store,
just look at it, sleeves lined with silk,
half roll and faced with silk; only had
to pay $9.00.
Broxcn : I guess I will get me one.
Smith: If you don't like this kind,
you can get a heavy beaver for $8.00,and
all other goods at 50 cents on the dollar.

Strong and true am the hands tolay
HinginK the bells swung to and fro,
Bnt let me sing in my hnmble way
A song from the bells of long ago;
A trembling song rang down the years
Sweeping past in their might and pride.
And Bweet yet sad with the hopes and fears
Of a boyish groom and maiden bride.
A welcome song sang the silver bells
When a wedding march was its jubilee
How the years are gone, but the echo tells
Of the whispered vows and constancy.
And Father Time that autumn day
Paused but. to praixe your golden hair
And hurried by in his busy way
With only n touch of his foot-print there.
Oh! silver bells in your changing tone
Scarcely a sorrow ye bring to me.
While many have wept their weary moan
Like rain on their fourth of a century.
Our wedding bells with the sun o'erhtwd
And the balm of Truth like an angel grace
Sing of the years with love made glad
And a rose a-bloom in a queenly face.
Sweet babes are ours, and their merry glee
And the starry eyes and rosy lips.
With the first bright suns of a century
Have left the world in a cold eclipse.
Glad friends may come, oh! silver bells
With laden hands that we all shall ken.
While love brings but a heart that tells
Its only gift to a silver pen.
