CITV , Neb. , Aug. " . [ Cor
respondence of the Uii : : . ] The county
scat of Otoc county , with a population
now nearly eleven thousand , is situated
on the west bank of the Missouri river ,
forty-thrpo mile- * south of Omaha and
fifty-seven miles cast of Lincoln. The
city is noted for its beautiful location ,
lying us H docs on n bluff and being
bounded on each side , east and west , by
North and South Table creeks. The
beautiful and rich orchards which sur
round the city nro the best to bo found in
the state , mid it i ? 'with commendable
pride that the visitor is shown them.
Here wo find the homo of J. Sterling
Morton , "Arbor Lodge , " as it is bolter
known , and a few miles further west we
arc at the beautiful country residence of
the Hon. C. 11. Van Wyck. While many
more elegant rural homes could bo men
tioned that ate passed on the route ,
it is sulllcicnt to say that while
Nebraska City docs not lay claim
to the busy life of metropolitan
Omaha , or to the active scenes to bo
found in the state capital , Lincoln , it
rests easy on its honors in being the
famous city of the state in solidity , as re
gards its mercantile standing. Endowed
dewed as > it is by nature , it takes no second
end place in being the most attractive
city in tlio state.
GOOD 1Y1ACI : KOIl INVESTMENT.
Nebraska City oilers many investments
to those of the east desiring a place where
the capital invested may be rapidly in
creased. It is now accredited by the
state press and the tniuiused public gen-
erally.the 1'orkopolU of the northwester n
states. Two largo packing .houses , al
ready in full anil working order , with
two more seeking a site , the credit of being -
ing the best market outside of Chicago ,
in the west cannot be disputed. At tlio
present writing the C. , H. & Q. railroad
company Is about miilding a bridge
across the .Missouri river to the Iowa
boundary. This will bo a want tilled
that has long been needed , and there is
no reason to doubt that before many
months a , wagon biidgo between this
point and Iowa will bo under construc
tion. The eiti/ons are always ready to
oiler any aid in their power that will cn-
hanco the growth of this beautiful city ,
and , as stated before , her merchants are
composed of a class noted not
only for their firmness commercially
speaking , but whose untiring efforts are
ever ready to take tlio front place in any
movement of enterprise.
Three daily

Dr. Komior , is enjoying a largo circula
tion as a weekly. Messrs. Alarnon and
Ilubncr arc wielding tlio labor- for the
News , while the helmsman of the Press
is Mr. II. Wood , a gentleman who , al
though comparatively n now-comer , is

Mr. Hutching , who is the proprietor of

which naturally makes Henry happy.
NEW ANty IMJp INIHTSTIEIES.
Among the uow , features which show
tlio strides tills eitjf is taking towards be
coming the second city in tae state , may
be mentioned the | ic.w government build

Otoe and Eightjstrujitsj the water works ,
which arc now , , biimg built and which
will be the be t in the state ; the largo
give employment 'to over one hundred
ineii. These npjw industries are in addi
tion to what this cjty has already in the
shape of large iid\tjtrial ; \ ! works , for in
stance , the distillery of which Mr.
George Woolsoy is president , employing
about seventy-live men and consuming
at present 1,000 bnshols of corn a day.
The capacity is double this amount , and
Mr. Woolsoy informs mo that soon an
extra force will ho nut on , working both
day and night , when the consumption
will bo 2,00' , ) bushels of corn a day. The
mill though running now night and day ,
is unable to fill the many orders received
daily , not only throughout this state , but
from Iowa and Missouri ,
SOMKSOUU HANKS.
No city in the slate can show better
banking facilities. Four banks are to bo
found hero : viz. , the Merchants , M. A.
Cotton , president , and Henry Sherwell ,
cashier. The latter gentleman is one of
the civrly residents of this county , and ,
though a young man , now ranks among
tlio leading capitalists of the city. The
Nebraska City National bankW. . A.
Wilson , president ; John Stoinhart , cash
ier , is doing a splendid business The
latter gentleman is also secretary of the
board of trade. The Otoo County Na
tional bank. M. K. Hill , president ; J.
Metcalf , cashier , is ono of the oldest
banks. The Farmers' bank , Logan
Unynrt , president ; W. P. W. Hoiisor ,
cashier , although only four years in
existence is receiving its share of busi
ness. The gentlemanly cashier , who , by
the way , holds the position of district
olork of this county , adds greatly to the
bank's nopularity.
"THOSE TKMI'OHAUV HOMES. "
The Morton house , Uced & lilrdsall ,
proprietors , situated on the lower part of
Main street , is where the hungry are well
fed and the weary can get comfortable
rest. The Grand Pacilio hotel , Thomas

corner of Tenth and Main streets , and
those who would grumble at the bill of
faro or tlio rooms that are furnished
might bo classed with the genus crank.

Well , yes , said the Conductor of the
train as he took the cigar 1 offered him.
1 have. Of course a man that travels
much has to. Can't help it. Hut the
worst cas-n I had to deal with was about
two years ago. Of course j-ou've heard
of the ease of Jeffries against this road.
No" Well , it grow out of that Meedvllle
nccldcnt Never hoard of the Meedville
disaster ? Well , I declare. I thought every
body had heard of that. Thorn were col
umns and culumn < < about it in the papers
for days. Jimmlny ! how the newspaper
fellows tried to interview mo ! 'Course 1
knew better than to say anything , but it
was pietty hard to get rid of the report
ers. Well , it was like this : 1 was on No.
5 and we were behind time. Johnnie wn *
n-whooping her through for all she was
worth. Just this side of Meedvillo the
air-brake tubing snapped and on went
the brakes qnlcker'n lightning. You sec ,
Ihal's.ono advantage of the air. If any
thing goes wrong it don't wait till yon
need 'em , but it just cramps your train
where she stands. You may risk a cracked
wheel , hut j'ou can't monkey with the
air. You've got to lix that right there or
you can't go ahead. Still , it was an un
lucky aftair for us. Well , there's a curve
at Meedvillo and wo sent back a man
with a red lantern , but before be got
round the bend down conies a wild special
right on us. It was down grade , tue
engineer lost his head nnd jumped , lire-
man did the same , and before you could
say Jack Kobinson that special had
climbed half-way through the sleeper.
It was an nwful'wreckl Half-past 1 in
the mortiinunndas black as cats. Whew !
1 don't care to talk about that. General
thing it's tlio emigrants in front that
sull'or in an accident , but , his time it was
the rich folks , in thcVloopers. .lell'ries
was one of the killed. lib was a railroad
man who used to bo in Chicago till ho
got a position on the Centraf in New
York. His family lived in Chicago , and
so he came through now and then. Mrs.
Jeli'rios sued the company for $ loOUO 1
think it was $10,000 , although they gen
erally coin for largeramounts. Anyhow
Hie company claimed he traveled free
and held they wore not liable. The com
pany lost .tho suit before the jury , but
they carried it up and the higher court
reversed the decision , and as Airs. JclVries
didn't ' seem to have money enough to
carry it any further , it rested there
against her. ( ) , yes , 1 suppose she could
have got lawyers onoiigh who would light
the ci'.so on spec when she had one ver
dict. 1 don't know the particulars or
why shndropped it ; I'm only telling yon
just what 1 heard that the case was
dropped. Well , mebby it's as you say.
Perhaps the company is liable for passes
as well as regular'tickets ; anvliow , I'm
giving you my version of it. Vou see the
conductor that took up the tickets that
trip was killed 1 was breaking then-
and whether they got the tickets and
passes or not well. I don't know any
thing : ibont _ that. They didn't have to
pay for Jeffries , anyhow.
The night after that suit was decided I
came through the sleeper collecting tick
ets. In seat No.1 sat a man that I thought
was asleep. Ho had a slouch hat drawn
over his eyes. 1 touched him on tlio
shoulder.
"Ticket , please , " I said. Ho didn't
move , and somehow tlio moment I
touched him 1 fell as it he wasn't a living
man.
" 1 want your ticket , " 1 said , loader.
He didn't seem to breathe or stir , and I
was going to shake him when 1 e slowly
raised his head. 1 snail never forget the
look of that face. The cheeks were
sunken and the pallid lips were drawn
back from the teeth that glittered in the
li < rhl of the lamp 1 had on my arm. His
complexion was like paste , only dark and
motlled. There seemed lo be a bruise or
gash on his forehead , but he had pulled
the slouch hat over it so as to partially
hide it.
He handed out a soiled coupon ticket
that had evidently been bought at a
scalper's. 1 looked at it suspiciously. It
was dated more than a year before , but it
was un unlimited tiokel and was good
enough.I tore oil' the cuiipoii lo Chicago
and gave him a cheek.
When 1 had galhered all my lickcls I
sal down in the smoking-car to arrange
them and make an entry of the cash. O ,
lhat's all right , wo do make an entry of
it. If a man takes any of it he takes a
big risk witli it , I can loll you. llhought
I would lake anollicrlook at that coupon.
Well , sir , I couldn't lind it. No , sir ;
hunted every pocket I had. Couldn't find
a trace of it. i wuu.t bapK.and met the
conductor of the sleeper and told him I
had lost a ticket or else I hadn't lorn it
oil' . Said I never knew myself totlo such
a thing , but 1 might liavo done so this
time , as the look of that man had sort ot'
rattled me.
"O , him"said Ihosleeper-man ; "we've
had a deuce of : i time with him. "
"What was the matter ? "
"Well , I guess it was the fault of the
up-town oflioe sold lower 4 twice. Final
ly the other follow agreed to take lower
1:5. : Lucky it was empty. Guess ho didn't
want to wrangle with thai fellow. Did
you * nolico how ho seems to be looking
past , yon instead of at you with these
half-closed eyes of his ? "

" 0 , it was all right. Hero are the two.
I'll report thai up-lown ollicc. It puts mo

Glmstly's ticket. " " ' '
Well , sir , no more ho hadn't. Next
mori.ing when the porter called lower
after everybody else had dressed ho got
no answer. lie parted the curtains ami
looked in. Lower ! was empty. The
bunk was just as be left it when it was
made up.
Well , wo concluded not to say anything
about our queer passenger. Didn't want
to be laughed ut up at the head oflico.
.Next night went oil' all right on the re
turn trip , but next again , when I went
through the coach there was die .same
man with the same slouch hat in the same
altitude. "
"Your tiokel. " 1 said , with a chill com
ing over mo. Ho looked up us before and
1 noticed that his eyes were half closed
and that ho did not look ut mo. but past
and beyond. "Sec heroc" 1 said , silling
down before him as he handed ni' ' . * the
same ticket. "Who are your"
"Is my ticket good ? " ho asked.
"Perfectly good , "
"Then what business Is it of yours who
I ainy Your company has made a con
tract with me. That contract is to deliver
me at Chicago. See that you , a servant
of the company aid it in keeping the
contract. "
"O , wo will deliver you in Chicago all
right. "
7'lid ) you do it the night before last ? "
"U'o can't do it if you get out off the
train at midnight. "
"My wife and child are waiting for mo
at Chicago. Sco that you keep your con
tract. "
And with that ho pulled his slouoh hat
further over his eyes and sank into the
corner of the seat.
I looked at my thumb and finger , where
I still felt the coupon 1 had torn ou" . "
It was not there ,
The porter wan so frightened that ho
refused to make up lower-1 , and two men
who had heard our conversation refused
lo stay in the car. The sluoper conductor
himself mtulo up lower 4. 1 flaw thn our-
turns close on the haggard occupant of
the berth. About midnight 1 parted the
curtains. There ho lay with his boots nnd
clothes on and the window curtains not
pulled down. The lighls from the slalion
that we wore stopping at filiuno in on
him. 1 saw nt a glance that the man was
dead. There was no use in nlarmine the
rest of thn passpiigcM. Onrnest stop was
at Moedville. I telegraphed on to hava
an iliidort.ikrr there to tnko charge of the
body. I told the oar conductor , and at
Meedvillo n couple of men cuino on and
wo went quietly to No. 4.
The lower berth was empty. Then it
Hashed on mo. Wo could never pet that
pas i'iiger past tlio utivvo this sldo of

The sleeper conductor wont up with mo
when I reported the nil'air nt the head
olllco in Chicago , and , as I expected , the
imin.'igpr lauuhcil al me.
"I'm going with you to-night and will
bo bark with von to-morrow night , " ho
said. "I'll lake the tiokel of thai passon-
gcr it In-'son hoard , and I'll bet you anew
now hat I'll keep it. too. "
Well , sir , when tin' nlliiiilgdl- and my
self wont through tlio .slcopur the next
night there sat the passenger with the
slouch hat in seat No. I. ,
"Yon nun lake his ticket ; " tjsaid , fall-

'I ' want your ticket , sir-said tliu man
ager , grnllly. , it. ,
Ho would have boiiivTdu\o , \ quickly
enough If I had spoken ti > a passenger
like that. The slouch hat slowly rose.
The malinger gave a gasp nnd sank
in tlu onposito seat. "My ( Jed , .lollViosV'
he whispered.
"Vou waul my ticket ? Why- "
"Why. sir , " said the man.igor , reeov-

"Why do you want my ticket , Mr.

"Don't spunk so loud , " whispered Man

accl.lont was not our fault-the operator
was to blame , perhaps , hut the jury ex-

"Vory well. 1 exonerate the company ,

"What would you have us do ? "
"Do * l-'ullill your contraot. Cot mo

" ! ( seems \yo can't do that. "
' 'Then I'll jus ! have to keep on trying.
My family is unprovided for. 1 must

"I'll coo to that , " said Manager Coupler
as ho rose.
Well , there is nothing more lo tell.

perhaps you would like to read it. iN'o ;
it's nothing about tlio gho t if lie was a

The item was as follows :
"A ( JKNKiiors ACT The K. , T. Y. &
C. Kailroad company , of which Mr.
Coupler is the cnergotfe manager , yester
day did a noble deed. Our readers will
remember that in the case of .JolVriea

position taken by the eminent counsel
who defended its interests. All that the
company wished \yw : to establish tlio fact
that under curtuiiv- conditions railroad

company , when all further action had
