The summer drouth which has only
been broken here and there by a few light
showers, and which has been so injurious
to the corn and late potato crop, was
wound up last Saturday afternoon and
night by heavy rains all over tha county

cast and the weather ceol for several
day,s giving all vegetation a grand op
nortunitv to absorb the much needed
moisture, and become thoroughly refresh
ed before the coming of the hot sun.
The rain was sufficient and will bring
what corn i3 left, with other vegetation,
fruits, etc , out in first-class shape for the
cchool Books and School Supplies at

Excoursion of B. of L. F.
Tho excursion train of the B. ef L. F.,
consisting of four coaches and a beauti
fully decorated engine, left Plattsmeuth
with about one hundred pleasure seekers
shortly before 8 a. m., Saturday. Ths
routo of tho train was to Omaha, thence
to Lincoln and on to Milford. Tho party
on its arrival at Milford numbered about
150, having been increased n tha way.
At first the prospects f er the day were
gloomy, tho rain having just ceased fall
ing. But the sky soon cleared and tho
excursionists took passage en boats and
were soon landed on Shogo island, the
point of their destination, which is a very
pretty plnco in the Blue river, nere the
day was spent in games, dancing and
boating. At 7 o'clock tha pleasnre-seek-ers
were "all aboard" and tha train start
ed on its return. The homeward trip
was not, however, so pleasant as the morn-
ing one. l no parties were urea irom
their day's rusticating and the rain poured
in torrents the latter half of the journey.
But the most disagreeable part of all was
their having to wait and switch araund
at almost every station, and en this ac
count the train wa3 delayed two hours,
iving in Plattsmouth at midnight.
Notwithstanding the long homeward ride,
a very pleasant day is reported.
The train was under the management
of Conductor Ballinger, legineer C. Z.
Simpson and Fireman James McLaren.
