ha. Mr. H. B. Bryant, of Ham
burg, Iowa, has a quantity of these
goods at 508 Thirteenth street We
learn he finds ready sale for them
wherever oflered, and, really, they
have only to be seen to be admired,
and used to be appreciated. They
are suspended from the walls by
means of gimlet books. When
not in use, they can be folded up
against ihe wall out of the way.
A few good, "live" young men
can make large wages by selling
these goods in Omaha, as this seems
to be a first-class invention, and,
we doubt not, will realize the Inven
tor a fortune.
The Xetehia Case.
Yesterday morning a motion in ar
restof judgment in the case of Charles
Ketcham 'as filed by Mr. Doane,
his attorney, the grounds of the
motion being : First, that the facts
stated in tho first count of the in
dictment do not constitute an of
fense under the law. Second, that
several different and distinct acts of
embezzlement are included in the
first count of the indictment; and
Third, that the issue presented and
tried by the second count of said
indictment remain undisposed of
by the verdict of the jury.
The motion was argued by Mr.
Doane and District Attorney Con
nell, and Judge Lake took It under
advisement, intimating that at the
present time he was inclined to
hold in favor of the motion. Should
he decide to grant the motion, it
would end the present case and the
defendant could only be proceeded
against by another indictment.

The motion in arrest of judgment
in the Ketchum embezzlement
case was argued by Mr. McConnell
for the State. The point mainly ar

is that the section of the statute
under which the indictment was

and not of private corporations.

The Latest Exploit of XoWtters, the
From Sheriff Farbar, who has
just returned from a western tour on
business, we learn, says the Ne
braska City Press, the following
particulars regarding McWaters,
so well known to our people.
On the 29th of May, the land
lord' of a hotel in Hays City, Kan
sas, bent 'word "to "Sheriff Ramsey,
that a man answering d'escrjptions
he held, was at his house. While
Sheriff Ramsey war reading the
description, McWaters stepped up
to him and looked over his shoulder.
Sheriff Ramsey looked at him, then
at a description he had in his pocket
and called to Mc., who had walked
away. Mo. came back and Ranjsey
arrested him and put 1dm in jail
under his deputy, with injunctions
to shoot him if he attempted to
escape. Mechanics were at this
time putting in a cage in the cell,
and were wqrking. The deput3
watched his prisoner and the day
soon passed away. When night
came on Mo offered the jailor $100
to let him go back to the hotel.
This the deputy refused. In the
morning while the workmen wore
engaged in working at the cae the
deputy "Sheriff tojd them to be care
nil aiid shut the fJotfF close when
they went out. Shortly afterwarJs
ono of the mechanics went put and
closed the door but it rebounded
open. Quick as JJglitn'jng McWa
ters .shot through it and closed it
after him, effectually locking the
deputy and two mechanics in the
cejl. Ho then quietly walked
past tbe other mpphanjp out
to where a fine horse belong
ing to the postmaster of the city was
picketed which he rode away,
Sheriff Ramsey wno was jn Ells

upon the receipt of a telegram In
forming him of his escape. He
then followed him up into
Furnas county, of this State.
Here he met an emigrant
whom he engaged to arrest him if
he could. The emigrant rode into
camp on Beaver 1'reek, and there
found McWaters. "" Mc. aga'"

THE COMING STRUCOUT.
The voters of our nation.
As neVr was known before,
Ar rising from Pacific's straci
To Atlantic's rocay shore."
Why Is th's mighty change t
N hat can the meaning be T
The rising of the nuses
From northern lake to southern sea.
The f pirit of old seventy-six. f
From out our heroes' graces
Forbids a nation drenched in patriots' blood,
Should sink to that of slaves ; '-
Tbe motto which our coins once bore,
1 houili ololete long since.
Remain as ever true: not one cent for tribute.
But millions for defense.
Party ties and party laws
Are but as ropes of sand.
The rights of min to be a man
Should govern Freedom's lanl.
Then shall our Flag more proudly float
O'er land as well as sea, j.
And nations yet unborn shall gladly gra-t
The emblem of tte free.
In trade we'll try tcrdeal.
As man should deal with man.
And while we seek to lire ourselves, "
We'll sell as cheap as anv bod r can.

Or fned you chance to meet,
