Warrick handed us a letter to read, last week, that he had just re ceived from his father in Washington, Penn. His father stated that they were having a well bored there for $1.40 per foot, and the contractors were furnishing everything, the derrick used cost $500, the boiler, $500, and the engine, $200; all of which the contractors f urnished. The casing for the well cost about $1,400.

This is not true, the expense of the carriage out and back was paid by the groom, extra of the fee and it is a pleasure to the Herald to correct the false and undeserved re flections cast upon him in the Journal article. 3Iisses laced serge shoes 35 and foxed 50 cents only, at 3Ierges. 14tf Tuesday afternoon by invitation we visited the fruit farm of 3Ir.

The city council held a regular adjourn ed session last Wednesday evening. All members were present. A petition from the property owners on Main St., between Second and Sxith, asking for the paying of Main from 2nd. to Cth street, and the calling of a special election to vote bonds to pay for the pav ing of intersections, was read. The pe tition was changed by inserting the west side of 7th in the place of Cth street. A motion from 3Ir. 3Iurphy to grant the prayer of the petiouers carried. A petition from the fire department asking for more hose and 24 water-proof coat9, for the use of the firemen, was read. The coats were ordered bought, but the adviaibility of getting the hose was left to the committee on fire and water. William Osborn, of the fire department, asked the council to designate a location for the new hose cart. 3Ir. White moved the cart be located in the 2nd ward. 3Ir Greusel amended by making the the location Wintersteen hill. The motion passed as amended. The long-delayed "cow-ordinance" was then called up. It provides for the ap pointing of a pound-master whose duty it shall be to arrest any live stock, what ever, found running at large in the city limits and a fine for each head of stock arrested, also, after due notice, for the selling of the stock at public auction. The ordinance was put on the 1st read ing when a remonstrance signed by 84 petitioners was read. The remonstrance had no effect and the ordinance was read by title the second and third times and adopted under a suspension of the rules. An ordinance establishing grading and paving district No. 1 was read and amended, making the 1st district extend from the west side of 2nd St. to the west side of 7th, and leaving the payment of the pavement occupied by the Platts mouth St. R. R. Co. also 18 inches on each side of its track. 3Ir. 3Iurphy mov ed the ordinance be read the second and third times and adopted under a suspen sion of the rules. The motion was sec onded but questions arose and 3Ir. 3Iur phy withdrew his motion and the ordi nance was laid over till the next meeting. An ordinance requiring the streets and alleys of all additions to the city to con form with those of the city, was read. On motion of 3Ir. 3Iurphy the ordinance was read as usual and adopted under a suspension of the rules. An ordinance to prevent the discharge of explosives in the city limits, and also to prevent the selling of fire crackers etc. to boys under 12 years of age, was laid over for amendments. The mayor then appointed an appro priation committee for 1887 consisting of 3Iessrs. Greusel, Weckbach and Jones. 3Ir. Weber moved that the committee on streets alleys and bridges be instructed to repair or remove the bridge on the corner of 8th St. and Washington Ave. 3Iotion carried. 3Ir. White moved that the chairman of the committe on streets alleys and bridges be instructed to do away with a pool of water on the cornes of Vine and 6th St. The chairman, 3Ir. Dutton, said he would attend to it. The mayor suggested that the city buy four more balls and chains, and get "a stone pile and put the tramps to work. On motion of 3Ir. Dutton the balls and chains were ordered bought. On Motion of 3Ir. 3IcCalIen the mayor was instructed to appoint a "crack-shot" to do away with the surplus canine. Council then adjourned to meet the following Friday evening. Council met last Friday evening per suant to adjournment, with all members present. The ordinance pertaining to the dis charge of explosives in the city limits, continued from the previous meeting, was fiist called up. After being revised sev eral times it was read the second and third times. Jlr. 3Iurphy then objected to the territory covered by the ordinance. He said the city limits extended into the country and covered several farms and it would be preposterous and absurd to see the city marshall going out through the woods and on to a farm to arrest a boy for shooting fire-crackers where there was no possible danger to property. 3Ir. White replied that the ordinance was intended to protect the people from bodily danger as well as property from fire, aud as proof of the danger related the killing of a young lady at Crete, Neb., by the mismanagement of a roman candle, and said that today fire works could not be bought there, and just such an acci dent was liable to occur in Plattsmouth. It was then decided to let the ordinance rest till the next meeting, by referring it to the judiciary committee. The ordinance creating paving district No. 1, continued from the previous meet ing, was produced, read three times and adopted under a suspension of the rules. The district takes in 3Iain St from the west side of 2nd to the west side of 7th- An ordinance ordering the paving of district No. 1, and giving the business men till Augest 1st to select the material with which to pave it, was read three times and adopted under a suspension of the rules. A resolution was introduced and adop ted, authorizing the board of public works to advertise for paving and ma terial. An ordinance was then introduced call ing for a special election for the voting of bonds to the- amount of $10,000 said election to be held July 25th. To bear not over 5 per cent interest, due in twen ty years but redeemable five years from date. The ordinance was read the second and third times and passed under a sus pension of the rules. Another ordinance was introduced calling for a special election for the vot ing of bonds for storm water sewerage to the amount of $30,000 said election to be held July 25th. The ordinance was read the usual number of times and pass ed under a suspension of the rules. On motion the committee on fire and water was instructed to ascertain the cost of good iron water basins for the public use. 3Ir. Dutton moved that the city attor ney be instructed to look after the city's interest before the board of equalization. The motion passed. On motion the city attorney was in structed to see that the recent additons were put on the tax list. 3rr. Creusel moved that the citv attorney tile com plaint against the assessment on the Fitz gerald block. 3lr. Todd, who was present said the board of equalization had al ready acted on the Fitzgerald block by adding $1,000 to the original assessment which was $9,000. 3Ir. 3Iurphy moved that a committee of the council be appointed to confer with the people whose property would be benefited by the sewering of the creeks, to see what they would do to wards bearing the expense thereof. The motion passed and the mayor appointed as members of that committee, 3Iessrs 3Iurphy, Weckbach and Dutton. 3Ir. Bach presented a petition asking permission to close the rear of his build ing, which he is repairing, with corrugat ed iron. The petition was granted with the un derstanding that the wall should be lined inside and outside with that ma terial. The mayor then appointed the follow ing judges and clerks for the bond elec tion of July 25th: First ward Judges, Fred Goos, Fred Goder. 31. O'Rourk: clerks, L. C. Stiles and Conrad Seidcnstrcker. Second ward Judges, P. D. Bates, Conrad Heisel, Henry 3Iiller; clerks, Ben ton Kiukead and Frank Becson. Third ward Judges, J. G. Richey, A. G. Hatt, I. Failing; clerks, David 3Iiller and 31.

DO Ho n SOUTH PARK is situ ated immediately ad joining the city of Plattsmouth on the south between the two main thoroughfares into the city, Lincoln and Chicago Avenues, and on the line of the li. & M. railroad extending south from the company's machine shops. The proprietors of this val uable addition propose to spare neither pains nor reas onable expense to make it not only pleasant but profitable to all persons purchasing lots. In the center ot this hand some addition a of magnificent forest trees lias been reserved for the use and pleasure of the city. Chicago and Lincoln avenues furnish the only circuitous drive out and into the city which avoids hills, and the level grade sug gests the early construction of our street railway to this locality, and to this end lib eral inducements will be offer ed. South Park is less than nine blocks from the business center of the city, and but a few rods from the great man ufacturing interests of the 11. 6c M. railroad, thus making it a desirable residence locality. The proprietors of this ad dition propose to re-invest the proceeds of the sale of the lirst 100 lots, in choice residences, which will be offered for sale on monthly payments. This will enhance the value of the lots purchased. IS'ow is the time to invest, for permanent use or specula tion. Without exaggeration or fictitious booming, Platts mouth realty is growing more firm in value each day, advanc ing on the basis of a permu nent business foundation.
