secured the necessary money. The time
for the repayment of the amount came ,
and the psondo detective could not
furnish the wherewithal. His wife oven
appeared upon the scene , and said that
unforeseen circumstances would some
times arise that necessitated such deals.
But the fair creditor linally became

debtor projwsed that she should take

The people of Council BlulTs possess
moro than a passing interest in the
elevation of the young men , judging
from the audience that assembled hist
evening ut St. Paul's Episcopal church ,
for it was largo and a healthy active
interest was manifested. An ad
dress was made by Arch Pow
ell , member of the St. Andrews
Brotherhood in Omaha. The objects
and practical workings of the order
wore fully described. Although yet in
its infancy the organization has a mem
bership of moro than 10,000 persons.
Its objects are mutual iv-sistanco and
moral elevation of members and the
reformation of tho.-o who are llio slaves
of nppotito or who are just forming
the habits which will prove their ruin.
Surely there is need for active work ol
this character in Council BlulTs , and n
chapter should he organized hero. Nr

' Things New and Old.
At the Congregational church yester
day morning the pastor , Rev. Q. W.
Crofts , gave a very Interesting sermon
on "Things Old and New. " His text
was , "Every scribe which is instructed
unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto
a man that is a householder , which
bringeth forth out of his treasure things
now and old. " He described the func
tions of u scribe to bo that of both pre
serving and proclaiming the truth. A
scribe was not only a historian , but also
a preacher. Ezra was a leading exam
ple of what a true scribe would bo. Ho
gathered up the sacred writings , ar
ranged them , gave the connecting links ,
and in this way became a sacred his
torian. He was more than this. Ho was
the Luther of his time. He was a bold ro-
formor. Ho brought forth from his
treasure things old and new. Christ
himself thus gave an example. Ho
gathered from the past all the truths
which needed reiterating , which were
of real value , ho cleared them from the
incrustations of time and traditions and
remolded them , presenting these old
things afresh. In the beaulitudes many
of these old truths appeared. When he
said "Blessed are- the meet ; , for they
inherit the earth , " he used the very
words found in oiio of the Psalms. In
speaking to his disciples in the words
of-the text ho evidently intended that
they should become true scribes. lie
asked them if they fully understood
what ho had been teaching them , mid
when they answered him that they did ,
he addressed to them the words of the
text. They had been instructed , and
their next duty was to bo scribes.
There were some foolish enough to
discard practically the whole of the
scriptures , because there were in the
history of the creation , and in the early
laws , some things which did not appear
to be consistent with modern ideas if
taken literally. These treasures of the
past should not bo thus ruthlessly tossed
aside. If yearsago some ono in parsing
over the plains of Troy had declared
therowerc hidden treasures far beneath
the surface , few would have believed it.
When Dr. Schliomann dug thorn out
and held them up to the admiration of
the world , then the foolishness of such
doubting became apparent. There wore
buried in these old scriptures antique
treasures of truth , which the delver
alone could lind , and which were rare
ornaments to the soul and cnriclurcnls
for the life. , These rich , antique truths
should bo brought to the surface , should
be vised as patterns from which to copy.
The disciples of Christ should bo both
conservative and progressive , as Ho
was both. This ago was a peculiar ono.
It was the ago of social , governmental
and theological upheavals. It was a
delving , trying , nervous , reformatory
: go. It was essentially nocenry that
lie example of Christ should bo fol-
owednnd things both old and now
On the other hand it should not be
forgotten that the law of God was ono of
progress , and there should be no fear of
now thoughts , or phases of truth. Our
vision was moro extended than that of
our fathers. Wo blood upon their
shoulders , and could get new glimpses
of truth. Let not the eyes be closed to
thcso now things. If false teachers tried
to mislead the people , the error would
soon bo exposed. This was an age of
rare intelligence. It was an ago in
which thoughts were tested. New
ideas were tried as if by lire/
Formerly the men were put in the
firo. Now the ideas wore put in the
fire. No one was persecuted because of
opinion's sake. It was the opinion , and
not the man , which was attacked. Lot
no ono , therefore , fear the now. Let no
ono be ashamed of the pn-jt. Let each
ono bring out from his treasure both the
now and the old.

The great prosperity of Council
Blulls during the past year has caused
an immense increase of business at the
post olllco. The effect has been felt in
every department and the present fa
cilities are wholly inadequate for hand
ling the immense amount of mail matter
that daily passes through this oflleo.
Work on'tho now building is slowly pro
gressing , but it will bo several weeks
before it will bo ready for occupancy.
Po-itmaster Bowman has returned from
Chicago , whcro ho wont to purchase
the now .furniture , and it will bo here
, by the time the building is ready for it.
Much annoying delay and discomfort is
caused by the present cramped quarters.
Th'J mails are behind time very frc :
quontlyof latej and the' narrow space
allotted to the public Is jammed with a
crowd of Biirging humanity until the
atmosphere of the Illy-ventilated room
becomes almost unbearable.
At the present time , there passes
through this ottlco an average of 12.GOO
letters , cards and papers , daily. Below
is given the postmaster's report for the
month of November just passed , and
for the same month of 1880 :

Such a marked increase cannot but
prove gratifying to all who are inter
ested in the rapid advancement of Coun
cil BlulTs. The growth of the past year
has been phenomenal in every respect ,
but from present indications it will bo
much surpassed by that of 1SS7.

HIS HAIR STOOD ON END.
An KiiBlnpor'H Story of n Wild Hide
on the NortInvesttM'ii.
There is n bond of attachment be
tween railroad men who have run on
the same line for a long time , in one
sense uniting them into a largo family
of brothers. They bravo the same dan
gers , view the same s-ccnes , and lind
pleasure or sorrow in the advancement
.or downfall of their fellow-men. Ho-
ccntly three engineers chanced to nvct
in Chicago , and although years had
elapsed since tlic.v studied the same
time card and whirled along over the
same rails , yet the greeting was as cor
dial as though they had parted butyc.--
torduy. 'They were all in the employ of
the Chicago < & Northwestern company ,
and at one linn- hud been on the
Winona & St. Peter division , but now
ono was running on the Miul'iMUi di
vision , the second in Dakota and the
other still made Winon.i the eastern
terminus of hi * run. They had streaks
of gray in their hair and it had all
come in the service of the one com
' 'lias tlcM'e been any nreid nts on
'the hill' lately1 n ked'ono of the men ,
referring to that picco of road which
wimU arou'id llio blulls in the a.-c-int
from Stockton to LowUton. a distance1
of about nine miles , in which trains
climb up between 600 and 000 feet , the
grade in places being ninety-three feet
ty the mile.
"No , no'hing serious , but I seldom go
through the blulls that I don't think of
ono particular time I went down there
and my hair stood right on end. It was
a coldj frosty morning in November , in
187 : ! . I was pulling the Rochester ac
commodation and Edward Lyons you
remember 'Slim Jim' was conductor.
We wore a little behind time. The
most of the cars on the train belonged
to eastern roads , and their brakes were
not in good order. I pulled out of
Lcwiston at pretty good speed , and
when we struck the top of 'tho hill' wo
were going right lively. I called for
brakes , and us wo headed down into the
gully I saw the boys scampering along
on the top of the train winding 'em up ,
but it didn't seem to do
much good. I whistled for
brakes airain , for wo wore go
ing around those sharp curves alto
gether lee fast. Then I saw 'Slim' up
on toi ) and the boys doubled up on the
brakes. Every brake was set , and yet
we kept going faster. I didn't dare to
reverse my engine , for it would hnvo
blown my cylinder-heads out and done
no good. When I looked bad ; again
the boys had given it up and got onto
the coach. Then wo came to the stop-
board just weit of the cuts , and wo went
by it n-sailing. My heart came right
up into my throat as I thought of the
bridges just a little farther on. The
coach was nackod with passengers , and
I couldn't do a thing to save 'cm. I told
the liromnn we were liable to jump the
track on some of those curves , and that
wo bettor get ready to jump olT some
how on the inside of the curve , if wo
did. Thou wo struck the Hrst trestle
it's lilled in now , but you remember
when wo used to cross that valley on the
top ends of timber , over seventy feet
from the ground and wo danced across
it in no timo. I guess wo wore going
fifty miles an hour. I looked at my
fireman , and ho was as pale as death ,
and I was just us badly scared
as ho was. Then I glanced
back as the train made a rainbow of it
self on a curve and I saw 'Slim * on the
platform of the coach. Ho motioned tome
mo I don't know how out I under
stood him and his plan. Ho was hand
ling the coach brake himself , mid ho
had a man ready to help him ; if wo
would jump the track ho would release
his brake , and as the strain was relieved
from the coupling to the car next abend
his man would pull the pin , then the
coach brake would bo reset and the pas
sengers would bo saved.
"Then wo How over the next bridge ,
and were coming to the most danger
ous spot on the hill. It was a mighty
sharp curve , and all there was bcit.vee'u
us and the fi.rm houses down in the
valley was a little strip of earth not
over ton foot wide. If wo wont over
there the train would bo broken into
kindling wood , and wo had no place to
jump , for on the other side the rocks
rose straight by forty or fifty feet. As
wo drew near ill just stopped breathing
and thought of my wife and baby.
I didn't realize it when wo passed the
dreaded spot , for when I looked
again wo were on bridge No. 1 , the last
we had to cross. You know , from there
down it is a good truck and as safe as on
n prairio. Then I braced up and looked
back. 'Slim' waved his cap at mo and 1
whistled in reply. The passengers did
not realize that the train had been In
great danger , but the rest of us did.
Pretty soon wo How by the water-tank a
mile west of Stockton and I looked nl
my watch. Wo must have been running
u mile a minute , for wo hud made upoui
time and moro , too. Wo were to meci
the west-bound passenger train m
Stockton , and our duty was to side-track
for it. Then I got scared again , and in >
hair resumed its former shnpo of stand
ing on end. Wo couldn't stop the train
Like a shot wo went through Stockton
crossed the bridge over Forbusho's jnill
dam , and then I looked for the pns
scnger train. It was not in sight
but might bo on the other sidi
of an up-grado wo were coming to.
