a protectionest one who works for the

by the successful invention in this

tint them as they cannot .upply the
ilrinaii I. I'riva'e letleri fioni the pat
ent office as Washington also commend
the invention iu the highest terms.
Their is no question of its practicabil
ity. Iu this Missouri valley country,
in this ne.r west there are a thousand
young and grow ing cities which build
publie halls and which will demand
just such seats whi'.'h are both elsvat
rd ami movable, and a: I'I ittsmoiith in
the centre of t.os great western codn
try is the place to manufacture, them.
Capitalists in Omaha have told diffei
eat tin t it a iu riattsm nth that Mr.
Thompson would receive aptopositiiH
f i i.m Muaha men to go lo that city
and a factory would be established.
A furniture factory can be ruaCe
big hives. mem iu thi3 city and for the
follow ing good and sufficient reasons:
We have cheap ground, good brick and
gontl stone for building material. Wo
have cheap lots w hich w ill make cheap
homes for laborers. We are at the
gateway to the Iowa cjal fields, which
warrants as cheap fuel as any town iu
the w est can secure. We are closo to
the state of Missouri, w hich posessees
an abundance of timber of the kind
for the manufacture of furniture. We
are txcellenily located for shipments
of manufactured goods through Xe
br.isk;', Kanias.Iowa and the Teiritor
tici. We mod iu establishing a furniture
factory, on- staple leading article, and
Mr. Thompson's patent chairs furnish
that arlich. Furniture is, as staph-,
in the trade as tlour. It is shipped
into Nebraska from eastern factories,
at an enoi mo.u expens of frieglitage;
cheap t vetytlay furniture needs no
ii.i'.li.in j i:iv.'s.cd in a factory for its
manufacture, and it is always billable.
In manufacturing one leading arti
cle like t ho opera chans eve;y scrap
and fragment can be utilized in small

houses in the. state could buy Nebraska
manufactured furniture and save two
thirds the freight they now pay from

The IIl.K.VLD does not advocate ;his
on its own thought ami investigation,
tut after consultation Willi citizens
old in experience and capitalists of
t is city and Lincoln and Omaha, and
the conclusion v.e reach we belfeve
every man who investigates th;? ques
tion will endorse. The 15. .v M. Manu
facture id f'iattsmoiiih cheaper than
they can in the east, and it staple sala
ble article can be made by a inattufac
t u: ing company in th's ciiy iu com
petition wiih the east as well. Every
lab jt ing man, evciy rutin who has a
home in l'lattsmouth, every business
man ami capittli-ft is interested iu this
and the llEK.VI.b has i o doubt of the
duty the city owes itself in this mat
ter. The Heualu is informed tnat the
Journal man has spuds when sdtcp
forsalifs his pillow, when visions takt
shape, when w itches aie abroad, and
evil spirits sing matins and that at
these times rest is secured only by
writing up fraud; we arc further told
that to this fact the bar of the city is
indebted for the elaborate attack upon
themselves and Judge I'ouud lasfc
week. The Hkkald would mildly
and impassionately suggest to its high
ly esteemed cotemporary that the
trouble may not be in his head but in
some other portion of Ins anatomy
which might be reached with M Jacobs
oil. or (linger Tonic; at least to flee
these evils, this advice is worth yivcs
tigatiun. Isaac Wiles, who retires the present
mouth from the boa id of county com
missioners, goes, leaving behind him a
record of industry and watchfulness
in county interests, that he has main
tained throughout his term, and that
has done much to place the board in the
Confidence w it'i the entire public that
it enjoys. We believe that Cas coun
ty has never had a more thoroiighly
competent board than the i elii int
one ; ami certainly Capt. Wiles relin
quishes his ofil.ta! .1 uties. possessing
the esteem and contiaci.ee cf the peo
ple of Cass county irrespective .i sec
lion or politics.
The jear just closing has been a
prosperous one to this city, and its
business men. It has also been a
prosperous one to Cass county ami its
farmers. The latter have harvested a
heavy crop, no epidemics have pre
vailed among their flocks and herds,
general prosperity smiles upon all at
the close of the year. No one can
look back without seeing many things
for which to be thankful, and the
good in the past is a continuous prom
ise for good in the future; and to jtll
in city and county the Herald sends
forth nniight bat good Wishes for the
New Year. v
The Herald has been asked where

laughable to oco the rood Doctor's
conclusions that he deducts lrom the

and statements; the way he garbles
evidence aud interprets statements;
the way he wrecks t"st'uuony aud

excuse for that search for fraud is
very cxhilirating; and finally, wc
laugh boiatrouslv to see the robust

thinks he is iu the hole and ready to
pull it in after him, some miserable
paper like the Omaha Kepublican or
the l'lattsmouth Hkrai.d uncovers
him aud shows hi:n up a little; aud
the way he sweats and storms around
promises to furnish an amusement
loving community much more fun in
the tuture. In fact, the Doctor is
making a much more successful farco
of it than those who knew him best

cease applauding as long as the red

Closing Exercises of the Public Schools.
Last Thursday and frieay evenings
occurred the closing exercises of the
public schools of this cit3', held in
the new opera house and very large
ly attended by our citizens, who
in this way alone amply at
tested their endoisement of these
exhibitions which were in ev
ery respect most creditable and
were lull of instruction to the pupil,
and a branch ol the school work that
cannot fail to be of much good to the
The entertainment on the Grst even
iug was given by the pupils of the
lower grades, ami the Herald enthu
siastically pronounces it by far the
best entertainment of the two.
The little folks did splendidly in
every part which they took aud the
programme was varied and full of in
terest to all. The recitations although
somewhat marred by the unavoidable
noise attending such a congregation of
little folks, were well given and were
all so good it would not be jus
tice to call any best.
The May queen as given by some
fifty of the little folks was tin event
of the evening and the teachers who
had charge of that can certainly be
gartilied at the way it was given and
received by the audience. Th6 first
evening the opera house on tloor and
iu gallery was crowded full and the
second night also saw a very large at
teudence. The failure of the pianoB
in at riving broke into the programme
of the second night badly but notwith
standing that the audience seemed
highly pleased with the work done by
During the first evening Prof.Drum-
mond was presented with an elegant
easy chair from the teachers and dur
3ng the closing days of the term sev
eral of the teachers were remembered
by their pupils in like manner.
The Herald believes, both from ex
perience and observation, that such
exhibitions are of much benefit to the
schools and pupils. Interest is awak
ened and pupils in such work cultivate
self possession and confidence, which
is always a powerful aid in after years.
The Herald further believes that
such exhibitions are evidences of lifts
and industry in a school which are at
tendant elements of success.
