An Important Llttlo Village of the
Platte, Her Industries and
JiY TIM TRIMMER.
Fourteen miles went of I'latt.smoutli,
located on the old main line of the R. &
M., and in the vulley of the Platte, is
situated the rustling, thriving burg of
Cedar Creek. It is not as large as ome
of her sisters; but the few days we spent
there, gave us the impression that for
business activity, it was not far behind,
the streets being full of teams each day.
Cedar Creek's location is a very advan
tageous one as a great corn belt and stock
raising region is near there, making her
one of the principal shipping points of
Then, too, the large supply of sand and
stone is another advantage possessed by
few towns in the union.
Besides many pleasant homes and resi
dences that skirt the suburbs, are two
dry goods and grocery stores; two grain
elevators; one blacksmith shop; one car
penter shop, one blacksmith shop, one
shoe shop, one barber shop, one bank,
one drug store, two hotels one sale autK
feed stable, and one well filled lumber
Cedar Creek owes her success as a
trading point of no mean standing to
the fact, that she possesses a substantial
lot of business men that always rustle to
the front and show up somewhat as fol
fows: Murphy Manker & Co., carry a
complete line of dry goods and groceries;
Geo. E. Sayles, an old time resident of
Cedar Creek and a number one business
man, carries a line stock of dry goods,
groceries and everything found in a first
class store; Mike Kyse, Imcksmith; Joseph
Wildi, carpenter; Hatt fc Co., butchers;
John Mum ford, boot and shoe shop; J.
A. Connor, grain dealer, business carried
on by Hon. D. S. Draper; Hon. F. E.
White, grain dealer, during his absence
his business is under the control of Geo.
E. Sayles; Dominic Nosciskle, butcher
for Hatt & Co.; J. A. Tipton, lumber
dealer for Ritchey Bros.; Mr. Tipton is
also the postmaster, and since receiving
the appointment he has erected a neat
new building greatly to the credit of
himself and the town. L. E. Meyers,
druggist; II. Inhelder, proprietor of feed
and sale stable; J. W. Hoburg is the ac
commodating station aireut. telcerrauh
operator and baggage master, and per
forms his duties elficieutly and agreeably
to all. Dr. J. B. Duff is the successful
physician and manipulator of pills and
powders. C. II. Parmele & Co., stock
dealers; they, are also extensive feeders
and stock raiu .-rs. running constantly on
their large tracts of land form two to
five hundred head of cattle.
The Farmers Bank recently organized,
is an enterprise of which Cedar Creek
may justly feel proud, especially when
we take into consideration the men who
are at its back, C. II. Parmele, president;
C. A. Manker. vice-president: F. A.
Murphy, cashier. The Litter well known
for his business sagacity and excellent
qualities is fast gaining the respect of
the citizens of Cedar Creek and commu
nity which he so justly deserves. We
wish to thank Fred for favors shown us
while in Cedar Creek; but not he alone
but many others who so kindly aided us
in our work.
C. II. Parmele & Co. are erecting, a
fine new residence at Cedar Creek, when
completed to lie occupied by Ed; Stivers,
who is raising stock for them.
Cedar Creek's hotel accommodations
are far above the average found in rural
towns, J. J. Schnider is proprietor of the
Schnider house aud Thede Miller of the
A.s above stated Cedar Creek's sand
and stone industry is very important.
There are six distinct sand pits, four
gravel pits and three stone quarries which
employ in the neighborhood of three
hundred men. The shipments are very
large; from August 1st to last Saturday
the 20tb, there were 1 200 car-loads of
sand and stone shipped to yarious points
in this state and Kansas. If we figure,
we will readily see that the B. & M. Co.
received a pood sum for freight as the
average is $12 per car.
The 1200 car shipment fo.es not in
clude the lower pit owned bj the B. &
M. Co. and known as the Oulloni pit
which ships daily from tjQ to 80 cars.
The stone and sand companies are as
follows: Murphy Patterson & Co.,
Plattsmoutli, own two; Western Sand &
S one Co., Oinalia, one; Frank Bushe,
Cedar Creek, one; Hugh Murphy, Omaha,
From eight to twelve cars qfstqek and
grain are shipped from Cedar Creek each

question but Cedar Creek s future pros
pects are bright. She will in the halcyon
dsys to come be a good town;is well locat
ed iu one of the must productive parts of j
the country, and in days not far distant,
she must and will waddle up to the front
and the business directory now in this
issue is an eloquent eulogy on her splen

A Fourscore Birthday Celebration.
Ou baturday Aug. 23th, lbbS, at the
home of Mr. Win. Vouug, iu Bock Creek
school district, a very pleasant and social
eyent, of rather more than ordinary im
portance, took place. It being the
eightieth birthday of Mr. Young, a large
number of relatives, friends and old ac
quaintances gathered at iU home to con
gratulate him with friendly greeting up
on his arriyal at the fourscore mile post

After greetings of welcome were over.
and a tew hours spent in social chat and
friendly yisiting, about seventy-five peo

and which cotsisted of all the good
things that heart could wish for.
Mr. loung is one of the old settlers of
Cass county, having lived in his present
nome something over thirtv-tliree vears.
Mr. Young's pioneer life has been one of
more than ordinary experience aud activ
ity. Having three different times moved
into new countries with his family and
occupied laud before it had been sur
veyed by the government. And in this
connection a short extract taken from the
biographical sketches of the early settlers
or cass county, as published in the his
tory of Nebraska, will be very interest
ing reading to his many friends aud ac
"Mr. Young was born iu Floyd Co.,
Ky., Aug. 23th 1S08, and was raised as a
farmer. He was mariied Dec. l.th, 1832.
He moved to Jousou Co., Missouri, in
the spring of 1837, and the same fall' he
moved to Platte Co., Mo. In 1842 he
moved to Nodaway Co., Mo., and fol
lowed fanning, and filled the of'ucc of
justice of the peace.
His wife died March 20th, 184'J, leav
ing four children, Lyviua. Francis M ,
Elizabeth J., and Mary. He was married
again May 12th, 1800, to Rebecca Mc
Broom, and removed to Mills Co., Iowa,
and again filled the office of justice of
peace. On Nov. 3rd, 18-4, he came to
Nebraska and staked out a claim of 320
acres, and on March oth, 1S5. moved his
family on to his claim. They lived in a
tent with wolves and wildcats about
them until he built a log cabin, but re
ceived no harm from his friendly neigh
bors except the loss of a few sheep. lie

first county road in Cass county. Thcv

county surveyor and served two terms in
succession; and served as road commis-

bridges all over the county.
Being 74 years of ace he retired from
active business life, and has been enao-ed
in fruit growing and bee keeping.

We wish to say that if more of such
friendly yisits were indulged in by coun
try people, the mouoiony of farm life
would be grpat'y relieved. For under
our present high pressure system of work,
aud reticent manner of social intercourse,
farmers and neigliors would scarcely be
on a speaking acquaintance with one
another, If It were not for the few days
of exchange work that usually takes
place during harvesting and threshing.
