MAKE A GREAT FOURTH
Dan Cupid pulled oft a Bomewhat
romantic caper last week, when a
young lady of this city and her Iowa
lover quietly slippsl out of the city
and were married before people hard
ly realiwd they were gone. The groom,
Otto Kruger, waa a resident of Cres-
tn la., where he holds a position in
o.n nnrlinirtnn shons there, while the
bride was Miss Tcsmc llobb, formerly
a dining room girl at the Rilejy hotel.
She is a daughter of Andrew llobb,
dIovcc of the Burlington.
The marriage was the culmination of
an old affection that has existed be
tween the two for several yca.s. Last
spring, the would be groom paid the
city a visit and the couplo carefully
planned their marriage, but as the
young lady was under age and the
parents would not give their necessary
N consent to the match, their little
canoe did not sail as per stipulated.

Rollow W. Browne of Washington

India Mahogany company, of which
Kx-represcni.at.ive Bollard is manager,
arrived in tlm city Friday for a few
days slay, being in this section of the
country in the business interests of
the corporation. Mr Browne is con
fident in t'.c unlimited success of the
company, in which the Nbhawka man
is one of the heavy stock holders.
It was Mr. Brown's first visit to No
braska, although he was well versei1
'through literature as to the true con
dition of the country. He was deeply
unnressed Willi the great resources
and possibilities of Nebraska soil
From the few days observation, .Mr
Browne was sure that the state had
line future before it, although he luu:
heard considerable talk of Nebraska
people investing their money in dif
ferent "boom states instead of sink
ingit within their own boundaries
Thursday, Mr. Browne visited the
Pollard place at Nehawka and cnioyei:
the day's outing at the big farm to his
utmost. V hen he returns to his
horns in the east, several months from
now, he will undoubtedly associate
with the name "Nebraska", phrases
of great possibilities and continued
prosperity in the future.
Like gigantic mushrooms, the tents
of the Brown Carnival company
sprang up last Friday night and the
people, who went home from their
work Friday evening, seeing nothing
but great stacks of blue boxes and
queer looking heaps of apparatus,
returned to the offices Saturday morn
ing to find in place of the box heaps,
a small white city extending through
the main streets of the business see
tion. Two car loads of baggage ar
rived in town Thursday night, but the
first delegation of show men did not
appear until Friday. The bulk of their
freight which they expected to receive
Friday morning, was delayed in ship
ping and did not come in until late
Fridav niirht. This necessitated the
show people to work nearly all night
in order to get the construction of their
concessions well under way for the
grand opening Saturday night. All
day Saturday, the streets were the
busiest places in Cass county, filled
with heavy wagons hauling tents and
seats, gangs of burly negroes setting
posts and raising canvas, groups of
managers keeping their men on the
jump in oider that the cloth village
might open on time, forces of elec
tricians wiring the side shows and pea
nut stands, and bunches of actors
perched on curbstones or boxes, wait
ing until their headqueartcrs were
Saturday evening the shows opened
as announced and the liedmen heaved
a sigh of relief, for the worst part of
their hard work was finished. All
the shows in operation drew big attend
ance and fine crowds thronged the
highway of mirth. Kverybody threw
their cares to the wind. No one
thought of their many worries but
everybody was happy and joy was
unconfincd. Reports from the differ
cut attractions showed them nil to be
good ones, Each held its' share of
patronage from Nero, the Big Snake
to the Dixie Land Minstrels. The
show men were well pleased with the
first Jay's crowds and the patronage
they received, and the Red Men were
hilarious over the outlook for the
Sunday seemed to be sandwiched
in between the two big celebrations
of the year as a very fitting and wel
come intermission. It was as a calm
before a storm, for the next day the
noise and pleasure broke foith in
greater magnitude than was ever seen
in the county. Everyone got the habit
of being happy and enjoying them
selves. The fine program and parade
were pulled off as carefully planned by
the order in charge, but as even the
newspaper men joined 111 tnc reigning
pirit of the day and the editor, report

the force went forth to engage hi the

the decoration of his store front and
windows. It has been many a day
since the windows appeared as hrignt
and catchy as they did on the Fourth.
If the display of the red white and blue
is a sign of real patriotism Plattsmouth
certainly had the Fourth of July spirit
t his year. It would take too many col
umns to justly describe the decorations
of each and every firm and it would
be hard to say which window display
was the best, for the majority of them
showed much skillful work in their
arrangement. Everything needed to
make the day a great one, seemed to
lend its part and the Fourth of July
1010 went down in Plattsmouth
history as a day that will never grow
According to the Lincoln papers the
Burlington is getting ready to boost
the salaries of its employees, the in
crease to benefit nearly every clerk
in the employee of the company.
Mr. William Baird, superintendent
of the local establishment, said, when
questioned by a News-Herald repre
scnatativc. "We have heard nothi ng
official concerning the increase in
wages. As far as I know, it is nothing
more than newspaper talk, although
there may be really something in it.
I would not Bay that the report is a
false one, but no such change has been
intimated to my knowledge."
The article from the state paper is
quoted as follows:
"The Burlington is preparing to in
crease the wages of its unorganized
employees between 0 and 10 per cent.
The increases will affect every employee
carning.a salary of $200 or less, and will
be entirely voluntary on the part of
It is stated that the increases will
affect between 20,000 and 30,000 em
ployees, the larger part of them be
ing clerks in the varoius offices who are
getting small salaries. Complete elata
has not been gathered regarding the
proposed increases, biut it is thought
that the pay roll of the company will
he increased between $4,000,000 and
$7,000,000 annually. The last volun
tary raise granted by the management
of the Burlington increased its pay roll
more than $4,000,000.
"Had it not been for certain things
which have made the railroads apprc-
hensicve of the future," said President
Darius Miller in Chicago, tho Burling
ton would have increased the pay of
unorganized labor befor this. As
matters are now we feel like going
slow and not taking any increased
liability that is not a necessity. We
recognize however, the fact that un
organized labor should have a recog
nition, no matter how the increases
in organized labor ranks may be
brought about. Several of theorganize
cd branches ef labor have already been
granted increasrs, and it may be that
we will wait until we have finished
treating with orgartued labor before we
take up ounorganized labor. 1 have
complete data as to the number of
employees that would be affected, as
to the increased pay roll the company
would have to mee t."
It is unelcrst&ul vliat the Burling
ton now has about 51,000 employees
on its entire system, and that between
00 and 70 per cent of them are in or
ganized labor ranks. The increases
if granted, will take in every office in
the system. It is understood that the
Burlington's action will he followed
by si miliar action on the Great North
ern and Northern Pacific, which are
Hill roads, and which have fully
100,000 employees, a large per cent
of whom would be affected by tin in
said the only regrettable part of the
affair was that he would have the
pleasure of spending the glorious
Fourth in his confinement. He finds
it's just his luck to land in the old shack
just about the time some big event
is to take place.
The third chapter of Louis's Jo
nah story commenced Friday after
noon, the scene being the same as act
two. He was in the same liquid re
freshment parlor, engaged in the same
irrigation process, when an acquaint
ance, George Poisall, blew in. The new
comer was a personal friend of Louis
who was languishing in the strong
house. He called Fred into the rear
of the establishment and asked' him
how they were going to get Louis
out of his straights. Fred said that he
couldn't inform his friend of the in
formation required and thereupon
the blows began to fall from George's
fists. Fred started making himself
scarce with the greatest possible haste
but in his hurried exit he slipped on
the floor and was piling up in one gen
cral heap with George close upon his
trail, when a peace maker arrived and
quelled the disturbance. A complaint
cubs sworn out against Poisall and he
was hustled off to face Judge Archer.
He pleaded not guilty to being drunk
and conducting himself in a pugilistic
and butinsky manner. Hizzoner dc-i
eidtd that . Poisall was mixed up pretty
strongly with the affair for which 1 e ,
was assessed a total of eight rupees.
If it had not been for the Fourth,!
which was but a fr'tv days off, he would
have had a meal ticket made out for
the Manspcakcr restaurant, but the
big celebration looked too good for
him, and he managed to find some'
fond friends that came to his rescue
with a diminutive roll.

At last Cass county has a new jail
not a very large one but it will ans
wer the purpose as well as the old
shack that has been "leaking" prison
ers so regularly the past few months.
The new jail was constructed by a
few Union citizens last Friday night
the material being boxes collected in
the back alley, with laths for making
the bars. It had the effect of empha
sizing the fact that the county is in
need of a new jail to take the place
of the old one that has been used ever
since Fido first learned to suck eggs.
It must be admitted that the old
jail gives the officials no chance to
hold prisoners without Keeping a guard
on duty at all times, wl ich would
be rather expensive. The manner
of paying for a new jail seems to be
a question, but it is our opinion that
a suitable one can be built on the court
house grounds and the cost paid out
rtf the general funds, thus avoiding
the issue of bonds, but no matter, gen
eral fund or bonds, the fact remains
that Cass county must have a better
jail, and that very soon, or le t the crim

to the metroplolis, but they remained
at a Main street store until the train

Mrs. Louca Mickle, one of the well
known residents of Cass county, who
formerly made her home nt Union,
passoel away Thurdsay night at the

Taylor, after an illni'ss of three years.
The deceased was born on January
IS, 1878. Her husband, Marion Mickle,
elied about eight years ago. Besides
her mother, the deceased leaves seven
sisters and three brothers. Funeral
services were held from the home Sat
urday and the remains wero taken to

Thursday and Friday were Fred
Ohm's "Jonah's Days, he didn't have
any luck any time." His "Jonah'
really commenced its parade Thursday
when Fred was at work in the country.
The hot day and close atmosphere
put Frederick away to the bail and he
returned to the city in the afternoon
decidedly wobbly in the knees. Fri
day he wasn't feeling anything extra af
ter being overcome by Old Sol, and as
a bracer to tune him up a bit, he
stepped into a booze factory and drew
two. While this irrigation process was
going on, Louis Reinhackcl made his
appearance at the placo and the two
started an argument over some trivial
matter. Before many Guilds had
been guzzled, the discussion had reach
ed its height and Freddie was being
heaped with language seldom used in
sewing circles, when the ' iron hand
of the law interfered and Louis was
harpooned by Big Chief Rainey and
carteel eiff to the calaboose.
Ho was shortly lined up before hiz
zoner and charged with being drunk
and using strong language. He owned
up that he had said a few things to
Freddie that wer not very polite and
that he had drained a bottle or two
for which big time he was ordered by
the judge to fork over five sheekles
and decoration. Louis claimed lie
had the neccary wherewithal, but
that the city would never be cnrichwl
by the amount which totaled eight
bones. The outcome of tho affair was
that he was stowed away in the eooler
to hang up for several days. Louis

Old Settlers Reunion.

I he merchants have decided that t -mri

Some Weeds Still Standing.
Many of the public spirited residents 1
of the city went forth last week with
their sickle and bowie knife to fell
tho weeds and trim up their lota.
The proclamation issued by the mayor
asking the people to get busy along
thtt line was well observed and the
improvement in several sections was
very noticeable. There were afew
however, who forgot there ever was
such a thing as a weed and it is to these
people that the authorities arc going
to direct their attention on. They
will camp on their train until the
weeds are razed and if it does not
happen in a day or two the property
owners at fault will find a little wad
added to their regular tax, with a label
attached, "for cutting weeels."
