some farther testimonials of the stats

Capt. II. E. Talnier, of Plattsmouth, is
being boomed by a great many state
papers as a deligate to tlio national re
publicaa cenreation. The Captaia was
ono of our early pioneers and has loan;
labored for tlio best interests of his party
aad the progress of his beloved Nebraska.
Ho would make a fitting representative
of our rapidly growing; state, and no one
better than his Furnas county frieade
would like to see him get there.
The Tecaraseh Chittain voicing the
sentiment of Johnson coaoty says:
Capt. II. . Palmar, of Plattsmouth. is
reeoivinjf favorable mention for delegate
at large front this state to the national
republican convention. The captain is
well qualified for the position aad would
prove an honett and capable delegate.
We have ao doubt but the old soldiers
aad republicans geaerally of this county

Y. M C. A. Conferenee.
Considering tho dismal and damp
woather during tho two days of confer
ence, hold at Couacil Bluffs, themoetiags
were small but full of eathusiasat. It
doesn't require a big crowd rearaeet Y.
31. C. A. fellows to mako a meeting la
teralis g, because they arn't "long-faced
Christians. If any young nan wishee to
enjoy himself he want's to join tha Young
Men's Christian Association. The order
of oxercises at this conference were as
follows: Saturday afternoon session was
held at tho Y. M. C. A. rooms; the atten
dance was small but a good deal of in
terest was manifested. In the evening a
number ef enthusiastic speaches in regard
to association work were made, in the
Baptist church, by several secretaries of
Iowa, and Mr. Jenner of Omaha. A good
young men's prayer moeting was hld
Sunday morning at the Y. M. C. A rooms
and also an inspiring g'jepel moeting ii
the afternoon. An interesting ;talk was
given by Mr. Spearce, general secretary
of Sioux Citv. Iowa, to tho men of
Council Bluffs, Sunday morning at the
M. E. church and in tho evening at the
Presbyterian church. Anniversary ad
dresses, full of precious thoughts, wsre
delivered in tho eveaing by Rev. Dr.
Phelps, at the Preebyterian church, and
Rev. Crofts, at the M. E. church.
It is to he hoped the time will aot be
far hence, when Plattsmouth may have
the pleasure of enjoying a Y. M. C. A.
conference or convention. Mr. O. C.
Jenner of Omaha has kindly consented
to visit Plattsmouth in a few weeks, to
give its men a stirring talk an the sub
ject of Young Men's Christian Associa
tion work He is a man of experience
in this work and will uadoubtedly have
some good news for Plattsmouth men.

air in the Ruo St. Fargeau, at Menil

Thoy cover an rrea of 15,000 square
meters, of which an extent of 2,000
meters is roofed over. Tliero are already

horse power each, a total of 3,000 horso

laid over the whole area comprised be
tween the line of tho boulevarda and tlio
Iiue de Rivoli. These are sometimes laid
in trenches cut for the purpose ami some
times in the sewers. The total length of
the pipes laid was at the end of last De
