Walter White has forfeited his reputa
tion as being a careful man. It seems he
brought the county safe, weighing ten
tons, up to the Bank, and as it was grow
ing dusk he left it stand unguarded on
the street all night. This was very care
less, for had the Nehawka people found
it in that condition the safe without a
doubt would be restiDg today wtth our
cannon, at the shrine of Ike Pollard or
The laws of physics were reversed on
the part of the county safe. Careful
measurements last night showed it would
go through the window with 4 inches to
spare. Ihe cold weather, however, in
stead of contracting seems to have ex
panded the safe until it lacked more than
four inches of going in and had to be
pulled back up the incline and turned on
its side. It is safely Loused now in the
Cass County Bank basement and no one
was hurt in its removal.
Philip Meisinger at the ripe age of SI
years, accompanied by his sons, John,
George and Peter, with their families,
arrived this morning from Pekin,
Illinois, and will hereafter be
citizens of Cass county. Mr. - Adam
Moore and family accompanied them,
making in all over forty people in the
crowd, added to Cass county citizenship
today. It required seven fr5lit chc t
haul their stock and furniture. John
Meisinger moves onto his farm south
east of Cedar Creek, which he purchased
of.Geo. Weidman last fall. Peter will
occupy a farm west ot this city, owned
by John Becker. George will move onto
the old Donnely place, while Mr. Moore
will occupy the Leonard Born farm near
the poor house. These people nre rela
ted to the Cass county Meisingers, the
Horns, Geo. Weidman and others here;
they are well to do people of means and
are indeed a most valuable acquisition.
The nESALD welcomes them to their
new home antl hopes they may neyer have
occasion to regret the change.
The bridge work on the Missouri Pa
cific has all been completed except the
stone and iron bridge across the Papio
in Sarpy county. Work will begin on
this bridge very soon. An immense
amount of steel rails and ties are being
piled tip at Union, preparatory to track
laying as soon as the above named bridge
ia completed. The M. P. has a track
laying machine that puts down the rails
very rapidly when everything is ready
for them, so that very early in the spring
we may expect to hear the whistle of M.
