The early autumn days have arrived
when the festiye candidate gets up at
four o'clock and rustles the hoe and the
garden rake in order to get his hands
hardened up, that he may meet the far
mer on his own grounds, and shed that
beautiful sympathy which only men in
like callings are supposed to under
stand. Wm. Lynch of Greenwood bought an
exceedingly fine lot of furniture of John
Unruh last week for the new club rooms
which are soon to be opened in that vil-
lage. A fine carved oak sideward, two
fancy tables, some of the best easy chairs
and substantial common chairs are apart
of the outfit that will fit out the first and
only club room in - Cass county. The
Greenwood boys appear to have a taste
for high life.
A genuine surprise was tendered Mis
Annie Gorder at her home on Third
street Saturday night. Miss Gorder had

A few minntes after, about thirty of her
friends, who had been gathering at Fred
Goos', came marching in, and Miss
Annie had to admit that she was very
cleverly taken in. Tiie company re
mained till a late hour, and were hand
eomely entertained with refreshments
and games of various kinds.
Yesterday was the first of the year 5(151
with the Jewish church all over the
world. While the Jewish people recog
nize the fact that the earth is much older
than that,and that thi is but a mythical
calculation of time, bo far as the crea
tion ot tne world is concerned, yet as a
recognition of the creative power of God
and as a convenience in keeping church
history properly recorded, they still ob
serve the festival of the religious new
year. Julius Pepperberg and family and
Israel Pearlman went to Omaha Saturday
evening to take part in the festivities,
which always last two days. Their
places of business in this city are closed
up in memory of the new year.
Charley Propst, a nephew of Marten
Propst, has been working for the Widow
Kiser, who resides on a farm near
Eight Mile Grove, he had hitherto borne
a good reputation, but on Friday
night Mrs. Kiser lost a pocketbook, con
taining about $ 200 which she bad kept
hid in an old stove about the house and
suspicion was at once cast upon young
Propst. Last night the sheriff went out
and arrested him at Gillespies, about
five miler from Risers, and by a little
persuasion he got Propst to think that it
might not go so hard with him if he
gave up the money which it was suppos
ed he had taken; he finally weakened and
went with the sheriff to an old corn crib
and fished out $153 which was all he had
left of the amount taken. He was
brought in and landed in the connty
jail where he awaits a preliminary exami

trip to Weeping Water, Saturday. We

The people of Louisville are justly
proud of the structure that crosses the
great Platte and brings Sarpy county
tributary to Louisville. The pottery is
not doing much yet' the tile factory is
running way nenind its ordera and
works day and night. Weeping Water
is very quiet, yet we saw several signB
of prosperity and evidence of public
spirit abounded on all sides. John
Chase, Weeping Water's "Mascot" has
just erected two beautiful Btore rooms
and has two more nearly completed.
The Post Office has been moved up on
Main street on the south side in one of
the Chase rooms, and if it is not the
neatest office in the state, it is the neat
est we have seen. The boxes are all of
the newest patterns and best finish. A
door at the rear of the room passes on
into a hall which reaches two commodi-
us rooms at the rear of the office, which
will be used by Dr. Butler, the Post
Master, as his private office. Everything
is bran new, neat and clean, except a
tough locking desk in the lobby, which
Doc keeps as a relic of the democratic

A surveying party surveyed a line
through John Leesley's place in a north
easterly direction a few days ago. They
moved right along and seemed to under
stand their business but did not care to
give any body any pointers on what
they were doing.
Claus Breckenfeld and family came
home this Morning after a delightful
trip to Cedar Creek, where in company
with the ever good natured Fred Shroe-
der and family, together with some'f riends
from abroad, they had picnicked in the
Cedar Creek woods, and by the way
more rocky, picturesque romantic glens
do not exist in Cass county than can be
found at Cedar Creek.
A jolly five o'clock tea party was held
at the home of Miss Jennie Copeland on
Third street, south of Main, Saturday eve

lightful repast was indulged in after
which progressive high five occupied the

executiye committee will meet in Weep
ing Water next Saturday at 2 o'clock.
Bird Critchfield started out on a cam
paign tour Saturday and when he got
overloaded with oyster soup he felt mus
ically inclined, and while John Davies
and "ye local" were willing to render a
few operatic airs in dulcet tones that
would fairly bring tears to the rockfi,
still Critchfield seemed uneasy and dis
satisfied; finally a 16th century music
box was discoverd at a resturant and
Bird's face lightened up at once, on
learning it could be purchased for $10, a
bargain was made and Bird now enter
tains his friends with "Auld Lang Syne"

friends gleefully is something rare and
