| Jv Ladles and Gentlemen : A pleasant duty
devolved on me to-night , and that is to make

who is now about to commence an cntsrprisa

ludo to Mr. John D. Cowie. This valuable
present , the finest gold watch and chain that

their good will , and accompanied with all car-

doubt if you carry out. the principles of
the establishment in which you have
% been so long : that our customers are
| . our friends and that our duty to them is n ot
* how much profit wo can got out of thorn , but
how cheaply wo can sell them , and never to
foist old or undesirable goods on them , but
rather to make the loss ourselves by selling
§ uch goods only ut what they are worth. If
you follow out thcso principles , as I am sure
you will , you are certain of success , and the
best of all success , because obtained in the
right way. And now , sir. in handing you
this watch , I have only to add that It carries
with it our esteem and respoet and the best
of good wishes for your future happiness and
Mr. Cowio's ready wit rarely falls him ,
4 but in this Instance ho was so overcome with
" emotion that ho could do no more than utter
Ills heartfelt thanks , at the conclusion of
which tears glistened In the eyes of many
old associates.
Mr. Cowio has been with Mr. Falconer
nearly eight years , and during that time ho
has endeared himself to all with whom ho
bus become associated. Like his late em
ployer ho is a firm believer in printers' Ink
Judiciously used , and ho will prove a good
patron of the Grand Island papers. The
people of that city will find Mr. Cowio and
his family u valuable acquisition to both so
cial and business circles. THE IIuu wishes

The Ornnnlzntloirn l-'irnt Social Under
Auspicious Cii-cuniHtaiiccH.
On last Thursday night branch No. 1 ,
Catholic Mutual Benevolent association ,
made its initial appearance in public. Undcc
its auspices was held ono of the most enjoy
able und unique sociables known in the city.
The party consisted of about ninety ladles
and ecntlcmcn. They belonged to the leadIng -
Ing ranks in catholic professional , mercantile
and social life. Tlio scene was the beautiful
and secluded lawn surrounding the residence.
of Bishop O'Connor , in Park place. The
grounds , embowered as they were in green ,
lighted by a hundred brilliant lumps mid a
still more brilliuni moon , presented an op-
pcarauco of romantic interest and beauty. At
the head of thetable presided Major B. Furay.
The occasion , the surroundings , the guests ,
the viands and llower-laden table Inspired
him to more than usual exuberance. His in
troductory was a gem and conduced to the
convivialitj which characterised the cvoning.
Dr. Kmsler , who introduced the association
to Omaha , spoke of its objects , its achieve
ments In the past and the duty it proposed to
itself m the future , of improving Iho moral ,
mental and sosial condition of its members
and assisting the families in case of the
death of brothers of the association.V. . A.
L. Gibbon boarcd into the realm of poetry
in complying with the request of the toastmaster -
master to tell the guests what they had as
sembled for. Bishop O'Connor responded
to the sentiment "Our Own Nebraska , " de
tailing an experience second in interest to
that of but few people who have lived In this
state for many years. Hey. P. F. McCarthy
was carried away by the subject of the
"Clergy , " as were his hearers by tlio mas
terly manner in whicti ho handled it. Mr. T.
J. Muhoncy felicitously apostrophized "The
Ladles , " after which the social was ad
journed. An outline of the objects of the
Catholic Mutual Benevolent association will
appear in TUB Bui : to-morrow.

The arteries are the highways of the
body through which the blood courses ,
bearing nutriment that simtains lifoaml
maintains the power of action in its
various members. The railway system
of America has grown to such' proportions
tions that iln various lines bear to the
body politic the same relation as the
arteries to the body physical. Along
thorn is a constant How of meat and
grain and fruit , the endless forms of
food that sustain life of the mombirs of
the nation , and the varied and valuable
products that contribute to their com
fort. Tlio importance of those arteries
can bo realized from the fact that over
the Pennsylvania , lines alone the
freight carried in a single year
exceeds the entire tonnage' of
the merchant marine of Great
Britain. Thcso lines are direct from
the commercial centres of the west to

Th ; ; Four Muiles of Capital Punish
ment Under Ihe Code of MOOCH.
"The general impression that hang
ing is a barbarous method of shuflling
criminals off the earth , " buid a local at
torney to a St. Louis Republican corre
spondent , -Mins caused the New York
legislature to create an enactment bub-
btituting electricity for the rope , but a
glaiifo at punishments invented and
practiced at the beginninffof the Chris
tian era shows that hanging is "not bo
bad after nil. " The rabbis were the
llrst among ancient legists to render
the infliction of the death penalty as
painless as possible. The manner in
which the sentence of the law in capi
tal ciiues was carried into effect was
regulated by a series of enactments.
Every detail was proclaimed. The place
of execution was always beyond the
limits of the town , generally at some
distance from the hull where judgment
had been pronounced. There wcro two
reasons , for this. First , that a certain
interval of time should elanso between
the sentence and execution , so as to
permit the court to examine itnv evi
dence that might yet bo forthcoming ;
and , secondly , that the eanhcdrim
should not witness the execution. As
soon as tlio punishment of death was
decreed the criminal was conducted
from the court , two elders , the wit
nesses , and the officers of the tribunal
accompanying him. In advance of the
cortege walked an attendant , proclaim
ing aloud : "So and so is to bo executed
for such and such an offense ; so and so
are the witnesses ; the crime was com
mitted at such a place , on such a day ,
and at biich an hour ; if any person can
urge anything against the iniliiHion of
the punishment lot him go the sanhe
drim , now sitting , and state his argu
ments. ' Then the party proceeded
through the town.
"Arriving within six yards of the
place of execution the wigcs who wore
with the culprit pressed him to confess
the crime. They told him that whoso
ever makes confession is privileged to
share in the elam haba future exist
ence since death was nn expiation of
all iniquities. If ho refused to acknowl
edge his guilt lie was asked to say :
'May my death prove an atonement for
all my transg-ossions. ' Ho was then
conducted to within four yards of the
place where sentence was to bo carried
into effect. The death draught was
hero administered. This beverage was
comi > osod of myrrh and frankincense
( lebnnu ) in a cup of vinegar or light
wlno. It produced in the convict a
kind of stupefaction , a semi-conscious
condition ol mind and body , rendering
him indifferent to his fate and scarcely
sensible to pain. The drink was in
Jerusalem provided by women , who
considered this one of the greatest mot-
zvoth meritorious deeds. In provin
cial towns the local communal authori
ties were required to furnish the crim
inal with the draught. As soon as .tho
culprit had drank ot the stupefying
draught the execution took place.
"In accordance with tlio Moaaio code
four kinds of death were inllicted , each
appropriate to a distinct series of crimes
starving , strangling , burning , and
decapitation. Nothing can bo more ab
surd than the notions generally current
respecting the manner In which these
punishments were carried out among
the Jews. The stoning of the bible and
of the Talmud , was not , as vulgularly
supposed , a pell-mell casting of stones
at a criminal ; the burning had nothing
whatever in common with the process
of consuming by lire a living person as
practiced by the churchmen of middle
ages. Nor did the strangling bear any
resemblance to the English method of
puttinff prisoners to death. The ston-
- ifr , n
ng to death of the Talmud was par-
formed as follows : The criminal was
conducted to an elevated space , divested
of his attire , if a man , and then hurled
to the ground bolow. The height of
the eminence from which ho was
thrown was always moro than llfteon
feet the higher , within certain limits ,
the bettor. It was not , however , to bo
So high as to smash or greatly disllguro
the body , This was a tender pointwith
the Jews. Man was created in God's
imsige , and it was not permitted to desecrate -
crate the temple shaped by heaven's
own hand. The llrst of the witnesses
who had testified against the con
demned man acted as oxocntiohor , in
accordance with Dout. xviii. 7. If the
convict fell face downward ho was
turned on his back. If ho was not quite
dead a stone , so heavy as to require two
persons to carry it , was taken to the
top of the eminence whence ho had boon
thrown ; the second of the witness then
hurled the stone so as to fall upon the
culprit bolow. The process , however ,
was seldom necessary , the semi-stupe
fied condition of the convict and the
height from which ho was cast ensuring
instant death. The bodies of those con
demned for blasphemy or idolatry were
subsequently hung upon a fallows until
dusk ; in other cases immediately after
execution the corpse was interred.
Outside of every town were two ceme
teries for criminals ono for those sen
tenced to bo stoned or burned , and ono
for those decupitod or hanged. As soon
its the llesh had disappeared the skele
ton could bo removed to the family
burying-placo. A few days after an
execution the friends and relatives of
the dead man ho was no longer re
garded as an offender called upon all
the judges who hud tried him. Tills
was a tacit acknowledgment that the
punishment had been justly awarded ,
and that those charged with the admin
istration of the law were regarded with
no revengeful toolings by the family
and connecllonsof the unfortunate man.
"A criminal sentenced to death by
burning was executed In the following
manner : A shallow pit , some two foot
deep , was dug in the ground. In this
the culprit was placed , standing up
right. Around nis legs earth was
shoveled and battered ( Irmly down until
ho was filled up totho knees in the soil.
A strong cord was now brought mid a
very soft cord wrapped around it. This
was passed once around the olToiulor.'t )
neck. Then two men came forward ,
each grasped ono end of the rope and
pulled hard. Sullocutlon was immedi
ate. As the condemned man felt the
strain of the cord and insensibility
supervened the lower jaw dropped. In
the mouth thus opened a lighted wick
was thrown. This constituted burning.
"Decapitation was performed by the
Jews after the fashion of the surround
ing nations. It was considered the most
humiliating , the most ignominious and
degrading death that any man could
suiter , It was the penalty in cases ol
assassination and deliberate murder.
It was incurred by those who wilfully
and wantonly slow a fellow-man with a
stone or with an implement of stone or
iron. It was likewise tlio punishment
meted out to all persons guilty of pa
ganism and living in a town.
"Strangulation'was a form of .death
by suffocation. It was effected as in
burning. The culprit stood up to his
knees in loobO earth. A soft cloth , con.
tabling a cord , was wound around the
neck. The ends being tightly pulled In
opposite directions , life was soon ex
