The Glorious Fourth.
On the evening of the third pi
titrations were complete for the
irrentest celebration Plattsmoutl
had ever taken part in. All was in
perfect readiness tor the morrow
Mr. Windham had personally seen
to it that every number on the pro
grain (which was the best one w
ever saw) would he responded t
About 5 o'clock on the morning of
the eventful day the elements
conspired against us and
destroyed bv a continuous rainfall
till afternoon the last chance to re
ceive or entertain the crowd. The
Nebraska city folks came up filling
three coaches on a special train of
M. P. and seemed to have a pretty
fair time of it considering the
weather. Speaking of the special
train which we trot over the Mis
Great credit is due I). M. Lewis
engineer, and J. (). Phillipi, general
manager of the M. P. R. R. for Ne
braska, for getting the excursion
rain through from Nebraska City.
Mr. Lewis worked all night hriday
night clearing the new track and
getting it in order, and it was
ojdy on Friday that Mr. Phillipi was
called upon to secure passenger
coaches. At lirst it seemed impo
sible to secure them as all were en
gaged for other portions of the line,
but extra elfort on his part accom
plished the work.
Notwithstanding the rain General
F,. M. Bartlette was on hand to ful
fill his part of the entertainment.
The sidewalks were thronged with
people during the afternoon and at
night while the splendid fireworks
display lasted. The B. & M. band
discoursed sweet music and added
much to the pleasures of the da'.
A great ball game was played at
4 o'clock which entertained a large
part of the crowd until evening.
And so passed off another
Fourth, to the serious disappoint
ment of Young America, who got
in his work with fire crackers to
make amends for the morning's
We are Magnanimous.
The laying of the corner stone of
Cass couty's new court house was
an occasion of great eclat Monday
afternoon at Plattsmouth. It was a
season of great rejoicing by citizens
of the town on the big muddy and
stress was made in offeringthe olive
branch to the west.enders and de
claring that henceforth all Cass
was united and at peace. Well, we
hope they mean it. Hut just wait
until the county conventions take
place. Will Plattsmouth then be
ready to quietly acquiesce in seeing
that the remainder ot county gets
a fair share of the nominations? Or
will she do as in the past grab all she
can, and then "cut" the remainder
of the ticket voting irrespective of
party principles for men who were
for Plattsmouth? The eyes of the
west are watching; and gingerly
eye with suspicion the great pio-
lession ot love thrown out by our
county seat. Are you sincere in
your profession? Better thrown
out a good big chunk this fall in
stead of a crumb. The Kaglet.
All right, Brother Knglish, we are
willing to be watched, as we believe
Plattsmouth will do more than fair
by her j3frmr competitors. We
don't want all the officers down
here, on the contary we will help
the'republicans of the west end to
get their just deserts.
A National Calamity.
Well authenticated reports were
sent out from Washington to-day,
stating that James G. Blaine was
fatally ill with Brights disease, and
that lie tendered his resignation as
secretary of state to President Har
rison. This news will make sad
hearts in millions of home9 and
can be viewed in no other light by
patriotic citiaens than as a national
It is reported from Beaver City
that Ely Marler, a nephew of Arch
Holmes, was shot and killed on the

of his gun, which he was removing
from his wagon. Mr. Marler was

Wabash. Ni:b., July 5, isoi.- (Spe

of people braved the rain and the
mud to celebrate the nation's birth
day in Boating Park at Wabash
yesterday, but the condition of the
weather no doubt kept thousands at

had charge of affairs and nothing
occurred to mar the pleasures of
t lie day. Hon. W. B. Comstock of
Lincoln was the orator of the da'

his oration was one of merit well
delivered and contained no refer

The sports were a pleasing

Wabash in a closely contested game
of ball, the score standing li to 11.
The program wound up with a
fire show at night, and dancing in

The prohibitionists of Cass coun-

career. Many a weary wayfarer
will miss its gracious, cooling
shade where he was wont to halt

yield some six cords or more of

An Old Land Mark Cone.
Within the past two weeks the
"big cottonwood" at the corner of
Judge Chapman's residence has
died. This tree was known to every
citizen of Cass county and has stood
like a sturdy sentinel in its place
since territorial days, yearly
spreading its graceful branches
further and further across the ave
nue and over the walks until it
became "a stopping place," "a place
of refuge from the August suns,'
alike to teams and foot passengers
This tree, with its two mates, was
planted by Capt. John W. Marshall
in the autumn of 1859. Some
fifteen years ago Judge Chapman
had to remove the first of the three,
which stood immediately in the
rear of his residence and almost
against his house. In 1881 or '82 the
second of these trees, standing:
almost immediately in tront of the
door, was struck by lightning and
so severely injured it had to be
taken down, yielding some fine
cords of wood. The judge informs
us that there was no difference in
the growth of these trees, thev
measuring exactly the same in cir
cumference as the years grew
apace. The last of these trees,
which will now disappear, measures
about twelve feet in circumference
and was apparently as healthy this
spring as it ever was. While it is a
"big tree," it is not an old one,
being but thirty-two years old. No
one can account for its sudden
taking off, and its owner and his
neighbors feel as though an old
eighbor and friend had been cut 1

A New Milking Machine.
While not able to compete with
Carl Smith in originality, we like to
have at least one good lie in this
paper a week. The New York Tri
buiie has been supplying us lately,
here is one of them.
"A Waukesha, Wis., man had long
noticed that a cow, when she was
being milked, worked her jaws in
dustriousty chewing her cud. Cal
culating with mathematics the ex
tra force expended by the animal in
this amusement, he found that it
was at least equal if not superior
to the force required from the hired
girl to extract the milk from the ud
der. The next step was compara
tively simple. It was only to con
struct a machine or apparatus that
would expend this force in theright
direction so that the cow would
milk herself and be none the worse
Resolutely avoiding technical
terms that would confuse the minds
of his brother agriculturist the
Tribune man thus describes the
"It consist of a small plate which
is clamped to the cow's lower jaw
This by an ingenious sy stem of
mechanical contrivances which we
shall take the liberty to call thin
gumbobs, connects with a dufuimy
which operates a small pump con
necting with the udder of the cow.
The cow chews her cud. her jaw

and to force the milk into a pail.
lien the milking is finished a bell
rings and Mr. Colburn, wearing a
silk hat and kid gloves comes out
and gets the milk and removes the
apparatus. Mr. Colburn already
has ten machines built, and 100 cows
are milked night and morning with
The agriculturalists of the coun
try will hail this invention with
great joy Not so much because it
is going to save them such labor in
the matter of milking cows as be
cause a great principle has been
discovered that will revolutionize
farming in the great west. The
amount of power going to waste
when a cow chews her cud is
nothing compared to the power
wasted by thejaws of political
farmers of Kansas and Nebraska
who have no time to attend to their
crops on account of the perilous
condition of the country,
If all these workers with their
chins had a plate attached to their
jaws connected with a thingumbob
a dufunny and a plow or corn plant
er, just think of the numberof acres
of rich land that would "laugh a
harvest" next fall, but which for
want of the proper machinery are
now running to waste, utterly
unproductive and barren.
