A Former Council III tilts Traveling
Sinn An-estcd For Adultery.
Quite a sensation has been developed
concerning a traveling man , well known
in western Iowa and Nebraska , and wlio
for several years made ills residence in
this city. His name is Henry L. Miller.
While a resident of this city ho occuoied
tlio house No. 1000 Fourth avenue , and
was in the employ of tlio George K. Oyler
manufacturing company. In 1883 ho
resigned to take a position with the
Weber wagon company , and was given
the territory of eastern Iowa and Illinois ,
which necessitated his removal to Chicago
cage , as a place of residence. While hero
he is said to have been given to llirting
with the attractive feminities in the
several towns visited by him , and his wife
is said to have had her suspicions aroused
ana her jealousy constantly fed.
Among those with whom ho
was reported to have been on un
duly friendly terms was a merchant's
daughter in Norfolk , Neb. There were
rumors hero that when on the road ho
represented himself as a single man ,
despite tlio existence of a wile and live
children in this city. His homo in this
city was owned by him , and was littcd
and furnished very nicely. Shortly before
leaving hero ho i.s said to have borrowed
? 300 of J.V. \ . Kleeb , promising on his
return from the trip on which ho was just
starting , to givn as security a mortgage
on his homo. Ho .suddenly sold his prop
erty and shipped his goods to Chicago ,
ami Mr , Klcou and other creditors were
left to mourn his departure. It seems
that since leaving hero and taking up his
residence in Chicago his wife's suspicions
as to his infidelity have not lessoned , and
the marital lifo has not boon sunshiny for
her. Although getting a large salary she
claims that ho lia.s been illy supporting
her , and she has been obliged
to take m Rowing to support the
family. Her story goes further. Ho
has boon remaining at home very little of
lato. When ho would come in from a
trip ho would sometimes not remain
moro than an hour , and would start
away claiming that ho had to start out of
town again. She aid not like the way
matters were looking , and so employed a
detective agency to shadow him. A
woman was sot on the watch and the
feminine detective seemed a room adjoin
ing ono occupied by a woman for wnom
it was thought Miller had a strong liking.
This woman went by tlio name of Mrs.
Louis Miller , Louis being Miller's middle
namo. The detective soon ascertained
that Miller and this woman were living
together , ami Satnrdaj last just as Miller
was leaving the city ho was arrested on
the charge of adultery. Ho was hold in
? )00 ) bonds. Ho telephoned to his em
ployers to go on his bonds , but they replied -
plied they were too busy to leave the
ollice , so ho was obliged to go to tail
The woman in the case is known as Ellio
Smith , of Oquawaka , 111. Her famili
are said to bo very respectable anc
wealthy. She claims that she supposet
Miller was single , and that she was mar
ried to him in November , 18S5 , at her
mother's house. The detectives doub
that any such marriage ever took place
as they can tind no trace of any license
in the county where she lives , Mrd. Mil
ler's lather , Mr. Mullican , of Monte
zuma , la. , and her brother-in-law
Mihon : Head , of JcUcrson , la , , are ii
Chicago , mid propose seeing that her
side of the atl'air is looked after.
The District School.

Hoover's Explanation.
Mr. S. S. Hoover , whose furniture was
attached on Saturday , was around yes-
erday straightening up the unpleasant
ness. In regard to the check he drew on
Ollicor & Pusey , and which was dishon
ored , he says that while in the Council
Mull's National bank ho drew the cheek ,
nnd as there were blank checks on the
same table he got hold of one of Ofliccr
V : Pusoy's by mistake , instead of one of
.he Council IllufTs National. He was
hewing yesterday a statement of Mr. L.
AV. Tulley's to corroborate this fact , and
was otherwise trying to set himself right ,
and clear the record. The affair will
doubtless bo settled.

How a AVhlto Child Was Stained
lilack for a Hlnvo Hale.
"They wore a strange-looking couple
the man about forty years old , dressed
in a suit of blue jeans , well worn , and on
his bullet head a crimson plush cap , fit
ting almost as tight as his own scalp. "
said a resident of St. Louis , relating nn
incident of early steamboat travel on
the Mississippi to a Republican reporter
of that city. "Ho had a long , thin face ,
rat-like eyes , and a nose that almost de
fies description. The child seemed to bo
about eight years old and small for
her ago. Her hair was very short ,
and looked as if it had been
singed with a hot iron and then
blackened. She had largo blue eyes and
a complexion such as I never saw in my
lifo. It was of a dirty brown , approachIng -
Ing a nionso color , something like the
discoloration produced by taking nitrate
of silver. She was dressed in the usual
style ot fanners' children in the winter.
"In the afternoon , while the boat was
steering past the shores of Arkansas , a
number ot gentlemen passengers were
sitting forward on tlio boiler dock in con
versation. I noticed the Kansas man
sitting near the company and scorning
much interested in the talk. After the
party broke up lie approached mo and
inquired : 'Are you a southerner1 1
told him I was. Ho then said he had
heard thai black niggers were worth a
heap moro than white ones In the south ,
and if ho could get a partner that was all
right ho hnd a plan to make a heap of
money. I informed him rather shortly
that 1 know of no one of my acquaint

aperture through which 1 could sec that
: ho inmate of the room was up and mov-
ng around.and my attention was aroused
ly hearing the voice of a child In seem
ing distress , and then the voice was
liuslicd , as if a hand had been placed over
her mouth. On looking through the
Tlass 1 saw my queer acquaintance en
gaged in staining the child from head to
foot. She was entirely nude , and the
operator had ti largo bottle ot a dark-
colored lluid in ono hand , while in the
other ho held a sponge. Ho painted her
over with several coats bcfoio he was
satisfied with that part of his work. Then
lie took from his carpet-bag a smaller
bottle , the contents of which ho applied
to her hair \vith a brush. After tins ho
dressed the child and put her out ol the
room , telling her to go to the ladies'
cabin ,
"Immediately after breakfast I went to
the captain and told him what I had seen
and my suspicions in regard to tlio man
and life white negro. The ladies were in
formed of what had taken place and
volunteered to take the child In hand and
llnd out all she could tell of herself and
the man in whoso possession she was.
"The ladies , with the assistance of the
captain's wife , had taken charge of the
little girl , ami , after relieving her mind
of fears for she was in great terror of
the man they found that she had been
an inmate of an orphan asylum in Kan
sas , and that the man liadtaiccu her from
the asylum for the puruoso of adopting
her as his child. His story was that he
lived in Iowa , and that ho and his wife
were without children and wanted a nice
little girl to raise. The little girl , re
lieved of the presence of the man , told a
great many conclusive facts which could
not bo doubted , and after aciitical ex
amination by a Dhyhician , who was on
the boat , she was pronounced without
doubt a whitu child. The man with the
red hat was locked in a state-room and
one of the steamboat hands put as guard
at the door. His carpet-bag was ex
amined and found to contain a lot of re
ceipts for dying black , along with the
two bottles on winch were tables from a
dying establishment in St. Louis. "
Old Potter.
Chicago Herald : "Out on our Nebraska
line , near Sulton , Clay county , " suid a
railroader who for many years had owed
allegiance to the great Chicago , Burling
ton ti Quincy , "there used to live a man
named I'otter a rather old man who had
seen better days , but who was then living
in a dugout , about two miles from town ,
and elobo by the railroad track. He was
a fearful old drunkard , too , and used to
go to town about every other day and iill
up at Pat Curran's saloon , starting homo
late in the evening , and always taking
the railroad track , Being an old man ,
and not able to stand such big
and bad doses of limior as Pat
gave him , ho often fell down on the
track and went to sleep. Time and
again our boys stopped their trains on
discovering old Potter ahead , and of
course , saved Ins lifo every time they did
it. It got to bo so that it was u rule of the
road along by Sutton to 'look out for old
Potter. " Atter a. time the boys got tired
of it , and got the local agent to notify
the old man that he'd got to keep oil' the
track or get hurl. This had no ell'ect ,
and Potter used our ties for a bed quite
as often as before. One winter's night in
1874 Dave Thompson lie's now superin
tendent at Lincoln , but lie was then a
freight conductor ono night Dave was
running an extra cattle train from Lowell ,
and as they reached the top of the hill
going down to Button , Dave was in the
engine cab and lie said :
" "Keep a sharp lookout for old Potter.
If he's on let's give him n scare. '
"Pretty soon the engineer sighted a
dilapidated form ahead on the track , and
declared it was that of the old man.
'Whistle for brakes , ' said Thompson , 'but
let her run pnstty free , and we'll shake
the old man up a bit. '
"The boys all entered into the spirit of
the thing. Their purpose was to run the
locomotive's nose right into the old man
and rouse him without hurting him , with
the idea of giving him a good scare. Hut
the weight of the train and the grade
proved pretty bad things to calculate to
such a hue point , and when the locomo
tive reached the old man the boys all had
their hearts in their throats and a feeling
that they were little better than murder
ers. They jumped down , expecting to
find Potter all mashed to pieces , but there
ho was under the engine , snug up against
the Hie box , where ho had been rolled
and pushed along on the snow for two or
three rods. He was evidently warm on
the side next the/ire / box and cold on the
other , for just as the boys got to him they
heard him mutter :
"I shay , ole 'oman , shay ycr pullin' all
'or cover oll'n me. '
"Well , the boys pot him out , and wore
delighted to linil that ho wasn't ' much
hurt. As soon as they got him thoroughly
roused he was the most frightened man
that eyer was. That scare proved his sal
vationfor ho braced upandreformcd.iind

farms in Clay county , i got this story
from one of our Nebraska men , and know
