Friend Judkiris, who runs Bell's
lumber 3'ard reports sales of lumber,
&c, since January 1st, 1874, as follow:
Lumber 594.000 feet.
Shingles 4S8.000. .
This "statement shoVS that the pine
lumber trade here has been good, and
that considerable building has been
going on in town and country not
withstanding the hard times. Mr.
Bell says when the railroad is finished
he will do a much larger business than
heretofore, because he can then ship
lumber bo that farmers and adjacent
towns will have better inducements
to come to Brown ville for their lumber
than to go elsewhere for it.
Everybody, bo far as wo know, in
the city, is deserving of Credit for the
promptitude with which thej' rush to
an alarm of fire, but on Monday
night, when the Union Hotel was
supposed to ho on fire, the nlacrity
with which Mr. James Stevenson
strapped on his Babcock Fire Extin-
guisuer ana enmuea to tne lire, was
deserving of praise, aud we thought
Jim the right man in the right place
at a fire. Frank E. Johnson is also
deserving of favorable nritice for the
way he slung out wooden buckets for
the boys to carry water in. We doubt
about all those buckets getting back
to the store.
Oh last Friday morning the resi
dence of J. L. McGee, of this city,
was destroyed by fire, together with
most of the household goods. Friday
the 8th, it will be remembered, was
the coldest, windiest, and most disa
greeable day of the winter, and about
as hard a wind to face without freez
ing as that "oldest inhabitant" ever
saw in Nebraska, or any other "gar
den spot of tho earth." It was about
8 o'clock on that morning that the
fire caught from a defective flue. The
alarm was immediately heralded by
the cry or "fire," and tho ringinc of
tho Presbyterian Church bell, and
men, hastily wrapping themselves in
such protection from the cold as was
at hand, proceeded to the scene of the
conflagration. But while many were
there promptly and reudered all pos
sible assistance, tho fierce gale that
was blowing from the northwest, and
the building being of wood and very
dry, it was at once apparent that it
was useless to try tosave thebuilding,
and efforts were directed only to sav
ing the valuable furniture and goods,
but so quickly did the flames envelop
the building and drive from it the
daring laborers, that the house and
nearly its entire contents were lost.
One ward-robe that was destro3'ed
contained over $500 worth of cloth
ing. The tQtal loss cannot be very ac
curately ascertained, but is estimated
nt about $3,000.
Question : Are your flues safe?
To our subscribers we offer the fol
lowing inducement for them to renew
their subscriptions, and tho same in
ducement is offered to those who do
not now take the paper:
Those who renew their subscrip
tion's, or subscribe, for the Adverti-
SI3R between this time and the loth
day of February, we will charge only
$1.50 for one year. Now avail your
self of this opportunity of getting the
beat weekly in the State for thesmall
est amount of money, nud tell the
good news to yodr neighbors who
have notbeen taking the Advertiser.
Remember, this ofler has reference
to cash payments only, and no kind
of trade. And, remember again, that
we do not mean a reduction of the
amount due ub from- subscribers in
arrears". We simply mean what we
say, that subscribers- can have the
Advertiser one year at the price
named above, by payment in advance
if they present us their names within
the time above named.
The Legislature has not as yet
fairly got to work making laws, and
will not until after the Senator is elec
ted which will be next Tuesday. It
is impossible for any legislature to get
right down to business while a Sena
torial ficht is ragitiff. The election of
a U. S. Senator for six years is a very
important piece of business, and we
think it perfectly proper that the mat
ter should receive a good share of the
attention of the members. Tho indi
cations are that this legislature will
be more harmonious than legislatures
usually are, and will do good work
for the State.
We are requested, by Mayor Tis

grations. Everybody should be pres
ent on that occasion.

A BOLD MOTE.
The frontlets fri the State Penitenti
ary Attempt .to Escape.
Tbey Hold tlx Prison One of tlxc
Guard Shot and Seriously
From the Omaha Republican of the
12th we take the following dispatches
of a bold attempt on the part of some
of the convicts in the penitentiary at
Lincoln to escape on the afternoon of
Monday last :
Lincoln. Neb., January 11.
At about 4 o'clock tqday, the peni
tentiary convicts, by a preconcerted
movement, overpowered the guards
and assumed the mastership of the
prison. McWaters was the leader.
His first movement was to overpower
and take the clothes of the deputy
warden, and with thick dust manu
facture an imitation hirsute, tho
better to facilitate deception. Gov.
Furnas has ordered out the citizens,
and telegraphed to Omaha for troops.
At present, (7 p. m.) the prisoners are
in the main building within the en
closure, while the outer walls aro sur
rounded with armed citizens. War
den Woodhurst is without the walls,
while his family is within. Great ex
IiiK-'coi.Nr Jan". 11, 10:40 p. m.
This afternoon at 4 o'clock thirteen
convicts, headed by the notorious
McWaters, revolted. They captured
two of the guards and Deputy War
den Knowles, and now hold the main
building of the prison. Mrs. Wood
hurst, wife of the warden is held a
prisoner: their two children escaped.
Gov. Furnas telegraphed for a compa
ny of regulars from Omaha. A large
crowd of armed citizens surround the
prison, i lie insurgents are expecteu
to break forth at the gate3 momenta
rily. McWaters shot one of the
guards in the knee, seriously wound
ing him. No one else injured at last
reports. Conisderable shooting has
occurred between the insurgents and
guardg. Only fifteen out of the sixty
are in the revolt. Calls are made up
on the citizens who have arms to go
there and help.
Lincoln, January, 11; 12 p. ra.
The rioters ar.e, still wKbih the pris

guards in the leg. No other violenco

have, for the last few days, been pass

sentimental protests for nothern po

be trying to make- martyrs of them
