The present toria of diatriot ourl

The court was occupied nil of yes

about 7 o'clock. A scaled verdict was
presented which is ionerully thought
to bo that of guilty.

A PANIC.
A Small Pax Patlont Appears In the
County Clork's Offlco.
About 9 o'clock this morning a
stranger who wore the garb of n la
boring man and was largo nnd robust
in appearance , entered the oflico of
County Clerk Baumor nnd inquired
for the commissioners. Ho was told
that they were not in and that ho
must ccino again.
The stranger insisted that hia busi-
icsa was urgent. EIo said ho wanted
lomo help from them and must have
t. "I have got the email pox. "
Previous to this startling announce-
nont the five deputies and clerks sat
tyoing the visitor with aomowhat of
ompassion nt his forlorn stato. They
voro nil busy but had time to drop n
ympnthetio tear , figuratively. At the
vord "smallpox" live heads disap-
joarod suddenly and ten pedal cx-
romities attired in brogans of variouB
hopes and aizos , took their places.
Everybody got under the tables ox
opt Deputy Clerk Leavitt , who fell
nto the ouspidoro iu hia haato. A ) ,
ilorris btuck his head out from under
iia desk and Herbert looaed up with
n nahon face and both yollud , "You
it. "
The small pox patient aaw ho had
rented a panic and wisely took his clo-
arturo , muttiirinp na ho went down
troot , "Wull , if that didn't look like
lot of frogs leaping into a pond to
soapo a atone lirod at the crowd , I'm
10 hand at simile. "
The boys alowly crept out and ono
> y ono by ono took a chow from tlio
ommon fund of fine-cut ns ttio best
irovontatlyo nt hand.
The patient was afterward picked
ip by HcCluro , nnd sent to the post
10U30.
John Haanuan , who was taken to
lie post house Mend ly , died at 10:20 :
. m. , yesterday , probably from lack of
ttention during the early stage ot the
iacnao. Cot. llouck interred the re-
inins at the county farm yostor-
ay. Duyond the fuot that the deBased
Based was from Kentucky , nothing
articular is known about him.

The handsomest nrliclo in the store
was n close-fitting bonnet in cnmoc
pink , with lovely pink ties in imita
tion brocade lace and shaded fuathorc
from white to pink. The crown and
front wuro trimmed in solid bead work
of pink and white. If anything was
delicately and exquisitely beautiful
this was , It was nn imported bonnel
and the price way up >
Ono of the toniest bonnets was a
"Mother Hubbard , " with pink on-
trich feathers about the entire front ,
falling toward the face. This bonnet
is of French chip , nnd the trimraini >
is mostly on the brim.
Ilats run extremely largo this
spring , and ono of the prettiest in thu
stock was of cream brocade satin ,
with white pearls and cream feathers.
The lining is of bronze nnd flowers to
match. Two magnificent ostrich
plumes fall across the brim toward
the back.
It appears that they don't trim
much on the crown now , either in
hats or bonnets.
The display of lace collars nnd col
Inrottca , is immense , there being eve
thro-I hundred different patterns. Th
stuck of ribbons ia unusually fine aw

CONFIDENCE RACKET.
Another "Gray" Fleeced of Bis Little
All by Depot Sharps.
A young man named Ward was
iofraudod out of $14 at the Union
Pacific depot yesterday by confidence
men. Ward came from the eut yes
terday , having a ticket for Mead.
While ho was waiting about the depot
lie became acquainted with a nice
looking young follow who called hitn-
jolf Randall and who very kindly of
fered to show the stringer a portion
at the town. Young Ward was anx
ious to look at the eights of the Gate
Oity , nnd therefore accompanied hia
now acquaintance willingly.
After wandering about a while they
uraivcd at the corner of llth and
Howard streets , where the so called
llpndull met an acquaintance and the
three walked in together. In a few
moments the acquaintance "tlished
up" n check for $800 purporting to bo
irawn cm the Omaha National Bank ,
tid Diked Randall to change it. The
latter was u.tablo to do that , and ap
pealed to hia friend. The young man
mnouncnd the fact that ho had only
If 14 , which wns all left him from the
imount ho left homo with.
The man who held the check said
hut amount would be enough to meet
lis pressing necessities , nnd ho would
lot turn over the check to Ward until
hey reached the depot , where it
night be cashed , nnd the 814 with n
louplo of doll ill's for the trouble
led noted. Thinking this a pretty
; oed Bimp Ward went down in.o his
cans nnd brought forth the money.
U thu next corner the new-mitdo
icqu.iintancos found it convenient to
into a aalotm r.iul .step out of the
uck door , leaving Ward with the
vorthless check. He naked noino ono
vliero ho could got it cashed and then
liscoveied the client. The confidence
hapn are not yet discovered.
The Nobraaka National.
The old Brash building , which has

eon to bo bogun. The plans , which
mvo boon drawn by Dufrouo & Moi >

fates is now in the vast to nuke ar-

There was quito a disturbance nl

to the night watchman for a supply ol

Bidernd a want of hospitality , and
pitched into the Kuardinn of spiritc
and abused , pounded and otherwise
maltreated him. They broke his nose
nnd used him up shamefully. Officer.

appeared on the scene and captured
thrco of them , lodging them together
in ono cell on the west side of the
city jail. Yestordny when the

it was found that the cell wag occu

wore broken fragments of chnirs ,

iron bars across the window were
bent apart nbout seven inches , nnd
the window Rush , glass and screen on
the outside were in n demolished

An ollicor stated to TIIK BRP. re
porter that ho thought these bars
wore previously bunt in this shape ,
but no ono over dreamed that n man

BRICKS FORBUILDERS.
A Chance forSomo Enterprising Firm
to Jump At.
At present , when the erection of so
many now buildings is contemplated ,
the question of the source of supply
for brick for use in the work ia nn ira
porlant ono. Every year the demand
for this class of material becomoa
greater and in numorout cases the im
possibility of obtaining aufficiect
quantities baa seriously embarrassed
the contrnctora and delayed the com
pletion of buildings and other im
provements , auch as sewers , etc.
A gentleman who boa resided in
this vicinity for mnny yeara has called
attention to the existence of an un
limited amount of "tho best clay in
Nebraska for making brick , " about
three miles north of this city. This is
the locality of the old Florence brick
yard , which , in 1850 and 1857 , turned
jut Bomo na fine brick , ho snya , na wna
3vor seen.
There is a Inrgo area of this olny
land which could b * purchased for
ilmoot nothing or leased for a nomi-
ial sum nnd which lies right along
ho line of the Omaha & St. Fnul
railway. Wood for burning the kilns
; ould bo obtained nt much less cost
.ban in the city nnd the man referred
, o assorts that bettor brick thnn any
low in use in Omaha could bo turned
} ut at nt least one-third less expense
, han elsewhere in this region of coun
ty. The owners of the land can give
t clear title and ho thinks that some
ivo firm ought to take hold and utilize
.ho valuable clay deposit.

A BIT OF HISTORY.
The Tenth Anniversary of the U. P.
Transfer.
The following will bo read with in
tereit not only by railroaad mon , bu t
by mnny others who will recall the
events alluded to. The Nonpareil
of Tuesday morning aays :
Ten ears ago yesterday the first
gai'g of workmen wont to work for
thu Union Pacific company at the
"transfer" in Council Blutfo , nnd ton
years ago yesterday the firut railroad
work was done on the grounds where
the Union Prtcifij passenger nnd
freight depots now stand. The first
gang that act in its work hero was
headed by Oapt. N. T. Spoor , until n
few yenra ngu freight ngent hero of
the company. Ho was sent over from
our neighboring city nnd wns accom
panied by n gnng of eight men. Upon
their arrival in Council .Bluffs they
found it necessary to unload a car o
wool before they could got nn of
fice , converting the car thus
emptied into a "freigh' '
house. " Of the orivinnl eight men
there still remain at the depot W. L
Prntt , cishior , nnd James Kane anc
John McArdlo , who still work for the
Union Pacific , nnd A. Van Order ,
who now works for the C. & N. W. ni
the U. P. freight depot. To-dny , on
the same ground , there nro employed
sixteen ganga of nan , numbering ir
all nbout 240 , nnd the ' 'box cnr oflico1
has boon auporcodod by a two-story
building over 200 feet in lengh , with
covered platforms twice aa long , nnd
an elegant passenger depot 100x12C
feet , and costing over § 200,000 , with
mile after mile of transferring tracks ,
all necessary to handle the business
which ton years ago wna conducted by
eight mon and a box car. For some
of the facts of this interesting railroad
history wo are indebted to James
Kieth , foreman on the platform for
eastern lines.
TO SCHOOL OFFICERS.
Circular Relative to the Annual
Meetings of the State Su
perintendent
I think it well to call the attention
af school ofncorA co the qualifications
} f voters at thu annual mooting. 1 do
not think the subject is well undor-
ilood , owing to some ambiguity in the
language of the law. According to
nay interpretationsupported by thoau-
ihority of the attorney general , every
) no who can take the oath in section 5 ,
pagoa 22 and 23 , can vote. The oath
ind qualifications in section 5 explain
; ho ambiguous word voter in the first
line of section 4.
An to the meaning of the word term
; ( the last annual assessment , " it is
mid that the law makes the assess-
nont on the first day of April , and
.ho act of the assessor is not necessary
o make n legal assessment. To illus-
rate : The law defines what theft is ,
ind it ia necessary that there should
30 arrest nnd conviction before the
