The Council Bluffs Globe of
Thursday contains a copy of a let
ter from C A. Dean, of Tiskiliwa,
Bis., father of tho young man who
was killed recently at Spoon Lake,
addressed to Palmer. He gives Palm
er a most scathing rebuke for having
refused his penniless and truant son
a night's lodging, and for having,
after he had met his death, charged
$15 for allowing his remains to lie
upon the floor of an unoccupied room.
Had Palmer been a little charitable
and furnished young Dean a place
to sleep, he would have been alive
to-day. Says Mr. Dean : "It seems
humanity did not show itself in this
case, and my dear non was turned
away to seek other quarters, though
in the dark of the night, and he a
stranger in your city; and he went
forth ouly to be brought back a
corpse a few minutes after. "

constantly improving. Morris, in
his role oF a Dutchman, wrestling
t with the Queen's English, is a whole
show in himself, and keeps his au-fv-dienee
in a continual roar of laugh
er. Canficld and Booker, Kngand
- dance men, are without equals on
' the minstrel stage. They are with
out doubt the champions in tills
specially, and they are well worth
seeing. The troupe is composed of
very gentlemanly set of men, and
are everywhere appreciated on this
Account, and for the excellence they
have attained in their profession.

This carriage is in every respect as

A CONFIDENCE GAME.
A CMcagoan by False Represen
tations Fleeces an Omahoss.
A man named J. C. Clougher,
hailing from Chicago, spent' last
week in this city representing him
self as an agent of the Commercial
Lithographing Company of Chica
for which he succeeded in ob
taining several orders for work from
our business houses.
It now turns out that the fellow
is a dead beat and a swindler, one
of his victims being Mr. John Rath,
of the cigar and tobacco firm of
Rath & Hansen, who gave him an
an order for some work. Clougher
induced Mr. Rath to endorse a draft
on Chicago for $20. In two or three
davs the draft came back protested,
and Mr. Rath had to pay it This
made him wrathy, and he at once
began telegraphing to different
places for the confidence man, who
had jumped the town, leaving an
unliquidated board bill at the Wyo
ming Hotel. Mr. Rath telegraphed
to the Commercial Lithographing
finmnanv for information concern
ing Clougher, and they answered
that "he was not now their agent,
and that the- had not received any
orders from him." This would in
dicate that he had, at some time,
been employed by the Company.
No trace has as yet been discovered
of his whereabouts, but it Is quite
likely that he u playing the same
game elsewhere, and people will do
well to "look a leedle owet"

Such is the name of the most
soda fountain ever brought to this
city. Mr. James K. Ish, the popu
lar druggist, although having a fine
soda fountain in his elegant drug
store on Farnham street, determined
some weeks ago to replace it with
another one that would eclipse in
every respect anything of the kind
to be seen in this "Western country.
He accordingly gave an order to Jas.
W. Tufts, of Boston, the well known
soda-water apparatus manufacturer,
to get him up such a fountain. The
design sulected was "The Statue."
It arrived last week, and was put up
and placed in running order on
"Wednesday, and since that time
bas been universally admired. The
cost was 1800, exclusive of freight.
This beautiful work of art merits
an extended description, while at
the same time the enterprise of Mr.
Ish in investing so much money in
it, in ordor to have a fountain that
would be in unison with his hand
some store, cannot be-t too much
"The Statue" occupies a promi
nent position in the front part of the
store, resting on a .semi-circular
marble-topped counter. The dimen
ions of the fountain are as follows:
3 feet 8 inche3 across the counter,
by 3 feet 1 inch lengthwise the
counter, and extreme height 5 feet
3 Inches. In its construction
many beautiful varieties of marble
nrn iikm-ami it is elecantlv set off
witn elaborate soiiu suver orna
ments. The four corners are bevel
ed and adorned with plate glass
mirrors, in front of each of which,
upon a pedestal ot maroie,
stands a bronze statuette of
unique am attractive design,
representing a knight of tho mid
dle ages. Eight massive silver pil
lars, two at each corner, support the
cap of marble, which is further
ornamented by a canopy of
marble at each upjwr corner, upon
whicli rests a bronze statuette, sup
porting aloft gas jets, which adds
greatly to the attractiveness of this
"thing of beauty." The whole is
surmounted with a ln'ghly finjsed
and showy fountain of living water
in a tented glass, upon which rests
a costly silver cap supporting
another statuette This water foun
tain Mr. Ish intends to have con
stantly operated by waterworks ar
ranged especially for it. The
novel and' picturesque appears
ance of this elegant soda foun
tain, with its varied combina
tion of marhje, in contrast wjth ts
silver ornaments, cannot be fully
and justly described, but it must he
seen to be appreciated, especially at
evening, when lit up by the gas
jets attached to it. It then forms a
picture of beauty and brilliancy,
which cannot fail to be lasting with
the admiring observer.
From "The Statue" can be drawn
soda of twenty different syrups; Pe
ruvian beerjginger ale and Vichy and
Kissengen waters; and adjoining It
is afountain for the drawing of
Saratoga Excelsior Spring water,
right fromthe barrel, for which Mr.
Ish is. thesole agent for the city.
"The Statue" Is not by any means
too beautiful for this establish
ment, which is really the hand
somest drug store in this city
.and the west. It is complete
in all its appointments, and "the
Statue" harmonizes in every respect
with the elegant luxury that here
prevails. "We are sure that Mr. Ish
will meet with the pecuniary re
ward to which he is certainly en
titled for so lavish an expenditure in
fitting up ids store, which is an
ornament to the city.
