B. F. Munroe of New York, a large
land owner in Platte county, here last
week to look after his interests, says
that there are many people of this state
who do not know when they are well off
when they think of moving to some
other section of Uncle Sam's extensive
domains. He declared that a certain
piece of land for which $40 an acre was
now being offered, was now readily
wortHJ8C0,and in a very few years would
bring '$100. Mr. Munroe had a number
of incidents to relate of bis experience
as a soldier on water for the United
States during the Civil war. When one
of the, company listening said that at
the beginning of the Spanish-American
war he had seriously mistrusted the
efficiency of our navy, Mr. Munroe re
marked, that the American navy was a
real secret service, the discipline very
strict and exacting, in fact as severe as
with convicts in a penitentiary. The
rules and regulations are read at stated
times, and pretty nearly every penalty
is death. The duties are light, but each
man is expected to do his full duty, and
however big a coward a man may be, he
must not show it in action. Mr. Munroe
says that the fighting qualities of the
First Nebraska have attracted the at
tention of all Eastern people to this
state, and wonderfully advertised the
state's good qualities, and really in
creased the market price of its lands.

Attempted Highway lottery.
Friday night about 10 o'clock, at a
place in the public highway some 200
yards south of the Loup wagon bridge,
as Louis and Panl Blasser were going
home in a one-seated, covered baggy, a
tall, Blim man going south, walking,
said something which they did not un
derstand, stepped quickly to their
horse's head, caught the lines, and fonr
times ordered the men to throw up their
hands. Lonis jumped out and made for
the man, knocking him over, but he re
covered himself quickly and, firing a
shot at Lonis, got off towards the south
in the darkness. It is supposed, of
course, that the object of the highway
man was robbery. Now see what fool
ish business a criminal engages in. The
robber calculates on possible murder,
and so is prepared with weapons for its
perpetration, bat if these men who were
attacked had also been armed, it wonld,
doubtless, have been the death of the
robber, and all for the sake of at best
getting in money 81.05, what the men
happened to h ave with them. If he only
could know it, the criminal is a very, an
exceedingly foolish man.
