flponeloucoof Iho UBK. ] The sudden uwukcn-
intf of Nebraska City and Its phenomenal
grbwth whlqh followed U tluo mniuly to the
c/TorU / of a very taw of Its progressive cltl-
7ens. ' Wliilc the masses wore ) "waiting for
HotML'thltig to turn up" or depending upon
"iihttfral ndvuntntfcs" to keep the city ullvu ,
n small number of its lending men nmdo a
11 ni ted effort to boom the "sleepy town on the
river , " mid were successful. The flutloiml
cuVlncnce Attained by Senator Van Wyck
during the past few years in a great measure
advertised Nebraska City as Ills homo. To
him the city is indebted for much substantial
uld towards the boom , and for securing the
appropriation of $200,000 by the government
for the magnificent i > ostofllcu building In
courna of erection. .
Ono of the first evidences of the city's '
| > iogress , uml ono of the greatest hunotlts to
the town , was the location hero of two of the
lurgrat packing houses in the west , the Ne
braska City and the Trans-Missouri , with n
combined capacity of4f < x ) hogs per day.
.They give employment to about 450 men. with
n daily pay roll of about f 1,000. These mum-
moth institutions were secured principally
through the personal exertions of the Hon.
J.-Sterling Morton , to whoso efforts more
than any other single individual Is duo the
prosperity of Nebraska City.
J. Collins Loyd has been in the city the
past week settling up his business affairs as
manager of the Trans-Missouri , preparatory
tc ( leaving for Manitoba , where ho expects to
engage Jn the jiacking business. Tho.houso
bare will commence killing by the
1st of November under an entirely
now management , the company having
recently organised with an increased capital
uml cxi > ect to run the house to its full ca
pacity. The Nobrusku City company will
aliw commence oixritions ngalti by the luttor
p-Vvt of this month. The udvcnt of these
packing houses induced the H. it M. to locate -
cato extensive stock yards here , which have
ndilcd a largo i > ur cent to the business of the
town , t
For several years effoi ts have been made
to secure a waterworks system for Nebraska
City. Schemes were inaugurated and came
to naught ; rontructs wcro made and not car
ried out , and nothing came of it but bluster
until ex-Mayor I ) . 1' . Holfo , president of the
board of ti.tde , took hold of the matter and
the result Is that now Nebraska City has
one of the Hue-it systems of waterworks and
the-be t electric light plant in the state.
Tho'acquisition of the Missouri P.icitlu
railroad was mainly due to the work of Hon.

When the IJ , & M first announced their in
tention of building a pcriimnput bridge across
the river at Nebraska City , the board of trade
uird leading business men of this city and
farmers of Fremont county , Iowa , petitioned
the railroad company to construct a wagon
and foot bridge in connection with the rail
road bridge , offering to subscribe the ( lifter-
ctieo in cost , but the railroad company re
fused to entertain the sohcmo , and the pro
ject was dropped. Now work on the bridge
lias rrmimiuiccd in earnest , and the grading

WASHINGTON , Oct. 10. [ Special Telegram
o the BEF. . ] "If the medical corps of the
irmy should give their reminiscences of the
var they could add a great many interesting
stories to the incidents of the internecine
strife , which make such popular reading
o-day , " said an ex-arrny burgeon now con-
iccted with one of the departments in Wash-
ngton. "In 1&J3 I wus the acting assistant
surgeon of the Eighteenth Pennsylvania
uvalry. Wo crossed the Patomac at Itac-
eon Fork on the 3d of that year , nnd
narched to Frederick , where1 the command
vas changed , General Hooker succeeding
oncr.il Meiulo nt the head of the division ,
uid General Stiihel was madu commandant
of calvary In place of General iVcasonton.
On Sunday , July 2 , the first brigade was en
gaged in u small fight nt Llttlcstown , nnd
'ollowing that we hud another little flurry
it Ked Mills. Then eaino the battle of
ettysbnrg. I was detailed to tuko charge
of the hospital ut Hanover , which was u few
miles away from the Held , and two or
: lu eo days after the light u poor fellow was
brought in who had been found in u wheat
ileld shot nil to pieces. He hud laid In the
jroillng sun for three ) days without food or
shelter of nny kind , and he wus in a horrible
ondition. The flies had been so thick around
lim that he was filled with maggots , und his
case seemed u hopeless ono fiom the moment
> ve laid eyes upon him , but cverj thing was
done to ease his dying hours nnd to make
uliii comfortable us he passed out of the
world. Turpentine wns freely injected into
, ho wound for the purpose of killing the
maggots , and , after he had been thoroughly
cleansed , he was given a diet of beuf tea and
jranily. It was generally conceded , how
ever , that his case wus hopeless , und under
; ho direction of the sui > orvising surgeon a
large dose of morphine was administered in
order that he might pass away with us little
consciousness of pain BS possible. But
forty-oiKUt hours afterwards ho still lived
und did not .scout ut all inclined to
quit. Just then u young lady from Hanover ,
who had been helping around the hospital ,
asked if there were any special cases of
which she might tuko churgo. She was told
that there wore und was assigned to look
utter this poor fellow. She did her work so
well that shortly after he was able to be re
moved from the field hospital to u better ono.
Hero ho continued to improve and shortly
after entirely recovered. This man's name
was MeEweiij and ho hud been u private in n
Missouri regiment. When discharged as
convalescent ho ut once man-led the younfi
lady who had done so much towards saving
his life , nnd soon afterwards returned to his
command where he rapidly arose in rank
und was filially mustered out as captain. "
"Hy the way , " continued the doctor ,
"there Is another interesting case which
came under my observation , but which ha ?
not inilU ) so much romance in it. At the
battle of Uallard's Dam. seven miles below
Fulmouth , Lieutenant w. C. Weeks , of the
Fifth Michigan cavalry received a shot
wound in the foot which entirely shattered
all the anterior bones. Ho wus taken to the
rear and attended by Dr. Woostor of the
First Michigan cavalry und Dr. Wood of the
Fifth New York. These surgeons at once
announced that his entire foot would have te
be amputated , but Weeks declined to ulloy
the operation to IKJ performed until ho hue
seen the burgeon of Ills own regiment , Dr
AithurK. St. Ulair , in whom ho hud the ut
most confidence. As soon us it could bo dom
St. Cluir examined the foot ani
decided that a portion of it could b <
saved. It was late ut nisht , but i
un improvised Hiirgoon's table was preparei
and 11 number of tullow dips were lighted ii
order that the opperutlon might bo proporlj
perfonne-d. Then Dr. St. Ulair ellssectei
out all the anterior bones of the foot am
brought down the astralgui , or heel bone , si
that it wus directly under instead of behlin
the extremity of the leg. From this bono In
removed thu articulating surface , und briiiK
ing u flap of tlosh around finished what i :
known us the Pirogotf operation. This wa
the first and only time that the operation wa
purfoniied during the war. The Held boa
pital was not u very convenient place for i
mini to recover from such a wound us thl
hud been , and Wenilw was sejit on to Wusli
ington , where ho was assigned quui
tors in the hospital in Armor ,
SM.UUI e. Hero the uttimillng surgeons ex
umlncd him und decided that , inasmuch a
there was great danger of blood polsonini
and little hope of saving en'en a portion o
thu foot hu must submit to an amputation o
the lower portion of the leg. Weeks ubso
liltuly refused to have this dono. Ho sail
that Dr. St. Clair had told him that wit ]
proper euro ho might recover , and ho believe
hi Dr. St. Clalr moro than In any other BUI
goon in tnei army. This disgusted the BUI
goons who hud little time for sympathy i
those days , and Weeks was allowed to remai
with very little attention. Hu laid there fq
some weeks gro\vng | constantly worse ' .i
almost neglected until ono day Senate ? Zac
Chandler visited the hqitul lool

After the National Conventions.
WASWINOTOX , Oct. 10. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] The people of Washington
nro beginning to look with covetous eyes
upon the presidential conventions of next
year. It is proposed to use the Northern
Liberty market for a convention hull. This
building is 33-t feet long , 120 feet wide , 103
feet high' aud with galleries could bo made to
scat 8,000 people. Mr. William Dick-
so.i thinks a special building
ought to bo and .would bo put
up for the purpose. C. S. Moore , secre
tary of the Columbia Democratic club , says :
"The problem simply is to capture the com
mittee. Washington has just the same ad
vantages as a place for holding national con
ventions that it has , the seat of the national
government. It belongs to no state ; it has
no vote in n presidential election ; it has no
[ Mindidato for the presidency ; it is absolutely
neutral , and therefore the proper place to
liolel a convention. Hut its natural advanta

Once She AVas a Dressmaker.
Of Mrs. Cushman K. Davis , wife of
Senator Davis , of Minnesota , whom the
codfish aristocracy of St. Paul refused
to recogni/.o in the recent reception to
President and Mrs. Cleveland , a writer
in the Now York World says :
In Washington she goes everywhere ,
and last , winter , her first appearance
there , she was an endless theme for the
female newspaper correspondents from
the capital. She divided the city into
two camps. The one side said "Paint ! "
The other cried l > Katy didn'tl" nnd the
latter proved their point eventually.
There was an oxcubo for the accusation ,
for her cheeks have a rose bloom upon
that is rarely been in the face of any
woman over fifteen. She is very pretty ;
she might even bo called a beauty. And
she is cultured , top speaks French and
fiornian well and is an excellent pianist.
Her husband plays the cornet like a vir
tuoso , and they have charming duels to
gether. She went everywhere in
Washington , and was thoroughly popu
lar and successful. But at home in St.
Paul no ono calls upon her and bocietj
absolutely refuses te ) accept the lead ol
Washington , so she lives with and foi
her husband , never sorarated from him
for more than a few hours at a time
and is his secretary , reader , friend and
playmate. The trouble is that Mrs
Daviti was a dressmaker and used to fit
gowns with pins in her mouth on the
ftuno ladies who are oxpecteel to receive
bur. Her father was drunken anil idle ,
her brothers and sisters ir.tiny , ant
when she finished her cour o at the
public school she finiuii Unit bho was no' '

On the 10th of September , 1807 , I
) Cgan a series of performances in the
Zarzucla theater in Madrid. From the
uitural enthusiasm of the Madrid pco-
> le I obtained all that an actress may
vish for. The theater was crowded.
Queen Isabella was in her box , liston-
ng eagerly and breaking forth every
low and then into the most kindly
applause. The following nights
performed "Mario Stuard"
and then "Mirra. " On the 21st I
uid to repeat "Medea. " That evening
I had a touching and never-forgotten
cxporionc. Before the performance wo
vero talking in the parlor adjoining
, he stage about our success and the most
lotcwortuy things wo had seen in thq
Spanish capital. "By the way , " I fiaid ,
'to-day I saw a man" that was going
ibout in the garments of some religious
u'otherhood , shaking continually a hand
) oll. What does that moan'r' I was
ol.d that the man was collecting alms to
lave prayers boid for the soul of ono
Cicholas Chapado , who was to bo shot
ho next day. This unhappy man was a
oldior , who , under an angry impulse ,
lad laid his hand upon the hilt of his
sword to inveigo against a sergeant who
md struck him. They also told mo that
us sister , having casually met the man
vith the hand-bell , asked who was seu-
onced to death. "Nicholas Chapado ; "
vas the answer , and the poor girl fell in
a swoon. That tale lllled mo with sad
ness. "Thcro , " I exclaimed , "while we
ire here , gay and thinking only of ap-
) lauso and triumphs , that poor victim
s counting the moments that are left to
lim. " Thereupon I walked sadly to
ny room to dress. After a few minutes
! heard from my husband that two gen-
lemon had called and begged to ask of
Queen Isabella the life of the unfortu-
late soldier. Chapado had been wrong-
ully struck by the sergeant and he had
done nothing inorb than just
TOUCH THE nii/r. of HIS swonn.
The ejueen , they baid , was very fond of
no ; if'I asked theMlrdon for the soldier
t would be granted. ' I promised I would
, ry and do all I could with the queen ,
) Ut immediately there arose a serious
liillculty. General Narvacx. , duke of
Valencia , was thejm-esidont of the cabi-
ict. It would not Jiavo done for me to
go directly to the queen before speaking
0 General Narvaea ; but he was gener-
illy feared on account of his oxee&sivo
severity. Still , I Icubw I would spoil the
whole thing if I wounded the general's
n-ido by applying directly to the queen.
fortunately , the general was in the au
dience. 1 begged him to come and BOOne
no if ho could up'aro ' a moment. The
general , ever courteous , hastened to
comply with the request. As soon as wo
wore left alone I motioned him to a seat.
The duke was touched by my voice aud
vspect , which bore plain evidence of my
"General , " I &aid , "You told mo
several times that you could never deny
1 request from mo , so high is the
esteem in which you are pleased to hold
mo. I beg , then , pardon for that poor
tidier. I am a foreigner. I have been
n Madrid only a few days , but from the
interest that all the people take in that
young man , I infer that ho fully do-

directly to her majesty without letting
vou know , but I thought , on the con

port my word can more easily reach the
iieart of the queen. I know how highly
she esteems you and how deeply she
ireats your tried experience and
"My good lady , " the duke answered ,
"it is impossible. I am sorry , but wo
need an example. Nearly all our revo
lutions wore started by the army. Pacts
of a similar kind happened seine time
ago. Wo were merciful ; you now bco
the results. We need tin example. Just
now the municipal council was prc&sing
the eiueen to grant a pardon , but I ad
vised her to bo steady and not yield.
After this how can I persuade her to do
otherwise ? "
Still , I did not lese my courage. I
kept up my peroration with the great
est enthusiasm , At length the duke
' Ah , Madam , " ho said , "certainly
your prayer should bo granted. Listen
to me. Ask an audience of her majesty.
She will receive you between the acts.

queen is fond of you. She will hesitate ;
she will hay that the president of thu

send for me and hope. "
I could not bay more , emotion bliilod
my words. I only boized his transport
and followed his advice. As soon as
the general loft ail crowded around mo.
"What did ho bay ? Docs ho yield ? "
"Hush , hush , for pity's sake. Leave

Wait. You mubt wait.
After the first act'1 tone queen granted

I , accompanied by ejno of my impresari ! ,
went to the royal bp * ! I was requested
to wait a few moments in an adjoining
room , when all of a sudden I hoard cries
and strange voices anel hurried foot-
stops. An attache of the court , an
enemy of Narvaoz , hud attempted sud'
dimly'to intrude uj ou the queen's pres

vaoz had just come iuitimo to thwart hit
onemy'b plan. Nevertheless , the queen
who was very weakv ( she was then bear
ing unhappy Alphoilio XII. , who wa1
born ono month later ) , on hearing those
cries had fainted. 'Wjhen ' she came te
she asked to see mo. ' ltThe good qucoi
apologi'/.ed to mo' for having kepi

Hearing the noise of the audience ,
anxious that the performance should go
on , I took my leave of her majesty.
MY HKAUT SWELLED WITH JOY.
"What dlftcront tragedies happen to

Then , having sent for a pen , she
signed the pardon ( which ono of her

cause of my call had become known a
crowd had gathered at the foot of the
staircase. I did ifot walk ; I Hod down

When again I made my appearance

people my name was mentioned with

A MOTIIKU'S LONG SKAUCJI.
She Fiiuls the Son of Whom She IInd
Cincinnati Enquirer : Mrs. John
Stoinort of No. 46 Finlay street , is to-
lay watching every hour that passes
intil the time shall come when her son ,
'or whom she searched for nineteen
years , will come to her for proof that
iho is his mother.
Twenty-one years ago and over there
ived in the City of Covington , Ky. , a
'amily named Koifor. Ono of the
daughters of this family , Judic , a lovely
anel intelligent girl , fell in love with a
r'ouny man named William Mullen , and
, hey were to bo married. But the old
story was told again , and when she was
ibout to become a mother ho eleserted
The child was born , a bright and
pretty boy , and when the deserted girl
iuul recovered she had to assist in sup
porting the family. Her mother was a
widow , with a largo family dopeneling
on her , anel it was hard work for them
to got along. But the young mother
worked faithfully and did much to keep
the wolf from the door. When the boy
was three years old she was taken down
with binall-pox and had to go to the hos
pital. Here she hung between life and
death for many weeks , and at last she
returned to her mother's homo to find
that her boy was gone.
Her mother ssid that the burden had
been to great for her , and having a
chance to give the boy a good homo she
had given him to a wealthy lady living
in Cincinnati , and who still Itves there.
To this lady wont the agonized young
mother for her boy. She was coldly re
ceived , and told that the boy was in
good hands and would bo well taken
care of , but she should never again see
him. She was satisfied that she had
boon the victim of a conspiracy , and
that her mother was ono of tno conspirators
raters to put the child away from her.
She registered a vow that the object of
her life shoulel bo to find anel recover
her boy. She went to work with a will ,
denying herself everything , save the
necessities of life , and using her earn
ings to further the search for her child.
Four years after the boy had disap
peared , and when ho was seven years
old , a man in Covington asked her to
She told him frankly tlo story of her
life how she had been betrayed and
how her chilel had been stolen from her.
The man listened to her story and
agreed to lot the dead past bury the
"But there is another thing , " she
said to him as they stood together ono
day. I have devoted my life to the
bcarch of my boy. If my marriage to
you prevents my following that search
I cannot marry you. "
"Your life is my life , " was the reply.
"Your sorrow , your pleasures are mine.
I will join you in thoboarchandwo will
llnd your boy. "
They were married. Considerable
money was expended , and many dis
appointments wore mot with. At last
they found a trace of the child. A
sister of the man who had ootraycd and
dcborted the girl told the mother that
her aunt had taken the baby boy and
given it to John Mullena brother to the
man who had left the betrayed girl at
the altar , and that ho lived near Dun-
oanvillo , OJiio , on a farm.
Last Friday morning John Mullen
stood on the porch of his comfortable
homo watching a carriage drawn by two
spanking horses come rapidly up the
road , and when it stopped at his gate ho
went out to greet the occupants , a man
and woman. The woman stopped up to
him and , in a voice husky with bup-
pressed excitement , said :
"Aro you not John Mullen ? "
"That is my name , madam. "
"Did you not have a brother whc
many years ago betrayed and do erte < l
his promised bride at Covington , Ky. ? ' :
John Mullen nodded bib head alllrma-
"Thai deserted bride became the moth
er of a boy. When ho was three years old
ho was stolen from her one day while
she ) lay sick in a hospital. Years and
years faho haft searched for her child ,
and at last she has been rewarded. ]
am the woman your brother bo babclj
deserted , and 1 am hero to claim inj
boy , whom you have brought up in
ignorance of his mother as your son. "
This was so astonishing to Mr. Mullen
that he could hardly speak for a mo
ment , but ho invited the two into the
parlor. Mullen did not talk much , bul
BOOH loft the room in a rages.
Hanging on the wall of the room vrm
the picture of a baby boy , and on this
the mother fastened her eyes.
John Mullen tried to deny , that the
boy was hers. The boy was brought in
an'd she abkod him his name , and ho re
plied that it was Job o Mullen. Ho tali
that his father and mother were botl
dead. Then she abkpd , him if ho knov
of a man by the nome of William Mill
leu , and ho replied that ho did , ani
that William Mullen was his undo
During al ) this .conversation the mothoi
first Iqoked'at a.photograph of the 'boj
that'Jiu g on''the-wall and theiu at .the
boy. finally eho said to him : "Bill
Mullen is iiot your undo , but your
lather , and L am your inolhor. " And
then she burst Into tears and fell on the
shoulder of her long-lost boy.
The boy said that ho had been told
while In Cincinnati that ho was only an
adopted child , but ho could never trace
the Information to any reliable tourco.
John Mullen had always told htm that
his parents were doail , and that ho was
laid on Mullen's door-stop when ho lived
in Covington. After a long conversa
tion they separated , with the under
standing that the boy would come to
Cincinnati in a few days to live with
his mother. John Mullen has threat
ened to have the person arrested who
gave Mrs. Stoinort her information ,
but it will evidently end in a threat.
William ( better known as "Ram Cat" )
Mullen , is a very tough citizen , anel
has been arrested in Covington and
other places in Kentucky for various
crimes. Ho has also been inside the
walls of the Frankfort ( Ky. ) peniten

Chicago News : The recent conven
tion of librarians at Round Island , in
the St. Lawrence river , recalls an in
cident of last year's convention. After
the proceedings nt Milwaukee con
cluded the members started off on a trip
through the northwest. They visited
several summer rcborts , mining and
lumber camps , and then crossed over to
Minncapeilis and St. Paul. Among
other points of interest they took
in the great Pilsbury flouring mills.
Fred Hild , of the Chicago library , was
at the head of the visiting delegation
and ho took it upon himself to show the
eastern delegates about. At the mills
they wcro met by a pleasant featured
old man dressed in a suit of Hour dusted
clothes. He was a very intelligent old
chap and was well up in the milling
business. Ho took the visitors all about
the immense establishment , showing
them the process by which flour was
ground , separated , packed and barreled.
Ho was so exceedingly polite anil at
tentive that Fred felt that some return
should bo made foe tho.troublo ho had
taken. Accordingly , when the visit
was concluded ho took the old gentle
man in the dusty clothes aside and gave
him ono of Moos' cigars. "There , " ho
said , "allow me to present this slight
token to show how wo appreciate your
politeness. You have been exceedingly
obliging , my good man" and ho went
away proud in the consciousness
of a good act. That night the vis
itors were tendered a banquet at the
hotel West. The astonishment of Hild
may bo imagined when ho behold the
dusty old miller arrayed in a swallow
tail coat and wearing on his bhirt front
a diamond as big as a turnip.
" \Vill you kindly tell mo , " said Fred ,
turning to a St. P&ul man , "who that
distinguished looking old man ib ? "
"That , " said the St. Paul man , "is

Now York Sun : Dcnman Thompson ,
the shrewd and genial old actor , is ono
of the nerviest and wildest betting men
on the turf. Tie bets for the sport of
the thing and not because ho knows
anything of horses. A btory of the ex
perience of the bookmakers found its
way into town yesterday through a letter -
tor from a western man who is on very
intimate terms with Den Thomp-on's
family. When the actor cleaned up
after last season's work ho took
$40,000 of his earnings , gave it to his
wife , and retired to his farm in
Massachusetts. About six weeks agohe
came to Now York , wont to the races
just for a flyer , won $2,600 , and caught
the betting fever. They couldn't get
him away from the paddock until ho
figured up and found his loss just
$10,000. He drew a long mug , made
good every cent , and said :
"Well , I guess I'll go back to my farm
and labor for Iho rest of the summer.
Sporting life is too rich for mo. "
Accordingly he wont back .to the
country and joined the laborers until
his season opened.
Laborers digging a cut for a railroad
near Canterbury uncovered an almost
perfect circular well built of flints.
Local antiquaries say. that it is the
opening lo Porno subterranean passage
used by the Romans when they camped
thoro. The workmen had previously
found near the same spot the remains
of two Roman soldiers.
While some men who were taking the
places of striking hands in the North
ampton , England , shoo factory were go
ing homo from work they were beset by
a mob of strikers , and in the midst of
the excitement George Arnold , ono of
the workers , staggered , throw up his
hands and fell to the pavement dead
from heart disease.
James Williamson , of Toronto , O. ,
captured a live crow in his cornfield.
While carrying it homo he was attacked
by hundreds of other crows. Ho first
tried to run away ; then ho made a vig
orous atlomt to defend himself with a
club ; next ho sought shelter in a shed ,
where Iho besieging crows kept him a
prisoner for more than an hour.
