L. C. Erven has not started his branch
store at Weeping Water as we stated
the other day, although all the ar
rangements had been made to that ef
fect the party at Weeping Water whom
he rented of, found an opportunity to
make more money out of the building
by letting other parties into it, which
seriously disarranges all of Mr. Erven's
plans, he will, however, put a stock of
goods into that town as soon as a suit
able room can be had.
Our base ball organization is actively
discussing the advisibility of procuring
now grounds, and are consulting the
Plattsmouth sportsmeu's club in regard
to securing a suitable tract of land
somewhere'within the city limits, and
fixing it up by grading, fencing, and
otherwise improving it. This would
furnish a suitable and pleasant resort
for base ball and shooting entertain
ments; which all sportsmen could ap-
Ereciate. It is a good idea, aud we
ope to see it more than discussed.
Gentlemen in charge of county fair
matters are actively pusning that enter
prise, and making all needful arrange
ments to hold a good county fair.
There is much our farmers could do iu the
way of comparing notes, and products,
and exchanging ideas in regard to the
different crops and experiences in culti
vating them, than by getting togetner
and holding a good live county fair.
Let all local feelings be smothered, and
public spirit gam its old time sway in
Cass countv: let every portion of our
county turn out and exhibit their stock,
andcrqps this fall, and xenew old ac
quaintances; it will be a good thing for
the county Lei the fair Do patronized.
Oar contemporary, the Herald
shouts itself hoarse for water works. It
wants the people to vote $50,000 in
bond at once for : its friends in the
council to handle. Let us whisper a
word in its ear. Let our people vote
I 950,000 in bonds to the now railroad,
get that built, and then it will be an
easy matter to get money to build wa
ter works, iiuiid up ine city and ine
water works will come. Plattsmouth
The foregoing is a fair specimen of
the Journal's idea of the wants of our
cltv. this paper has never wanted the
people to vote $50,000, we don't believe
a system of water works would, such
as the Herald has been advocating,
cost one-fifth of $50,000; so far
as the new railroad is concerned, the
Herald has been the consistent advo
cate of that enterprise, long before the
Journal dreamed of it, while that
organ was subscribing stock in aid of
slack water navigation cn me x iattc
river, cr some such scheme to bring the
Platte river into Plattsmouth by means
of a canal to furnish water power to
ran the Daily Journal, oh, no, Jttr.
Journal, we propose to keep right on,
at the water works and the railroad,
and when the city gets large enough
we expect to see the Journal advocate
i the sap enterprise.
A goodly crod was trscznbled last
night at the High School to hear the
discussion, whleh was somewhat inter
estlng, though tbo question was un-
doubtly a very weak one.
A few more teachers were enrolled to
day. Supt. Alton has received notice
from several teachers of their in ten
tloo to atttend next week.
The programme for next week will
be given tomorrow. There will be a
lecture every night.
The Interest still continues at fever
beat; every teacher admits that the time
thus far could not have been spent to
a better advantage.

The Fifth Annual Reunion of Sold
lers and Sailors of Nebraska will oc
cur September 3d to 8th, at llastlngs.
The railroad companies have agreed to
carry all soldiers and their families for
one ana one-naif cents per mile for
miles travelled, and tickets will be sold
any day of the week, including Sun
day, Sept. 9th.
rsine hundred tents have been secured
so tiiat all can have shelter. The
ground is pronounced by the Depart
ment Commander to be the best camp
ground a Nebraska reunion has ever
bal. Trains will stop within ZOO feet
All uniformed bands will be carried
free. A good wagon park has been
provided for those who wish to camp
with teams, and all teams will be fur
nished hay and abundance of water
convenient to wagon park.
Uenerai 1'nil bhendan is expected to
be in camp one day, and the camp is
called 'Sheridan." Other eminent men
will also be present.
A big time is expected. It is be
lieved by those who are in position to
know, that this will be the largest re
uniou ever held in our State.
It is hoped that a large number of
McConihie Post, and all old soldiers
and their families, who wish to attend
the reunion will go. I should like to
have all who expect to go to go in a
body, if we can agree on the time of
going. Make your arrangements to go
and watch the paper for further notice.

Sir Knights Enroute.
A special train consisting of seven
Pullman sleepers and two baggage
coaches passed through the city this
morning for the Pacific coast. The
passengers were Sir Kuights and their
ladies on their way to attend the grand
conclave which convenes in San Fran
cisco in a few days. The train was a
very fine one, and was crowded with a
very intelligent looking set of injoplc.
Three of the coaches contained com
manderies from New York the other
fonr being from Michigan. In convers
ing with a sir -knight of New York
city, we learned that they were having
a grand time and did not in the least,
feel fatigued, over their long journey ;
to the most of them this- is their first
trip west, and our informant says they
are perfectly surprised at the vast ex
tent, fertility, and natural resources of
this veritable western empire. The
train was in charge of Joe McCoy,
which is a guarantee of a safe and rap

President Arthur was entertained
with a war dance by the noble red men
up at Ft. Washakie, as will be seen by
the telegraphic dispatches elsewhere.
If the President wanted to see a war
dance that bad, why didn't he come
and see ours. He could have rode
out to the Platte bottom in Jo tie's 'bus
for a half dollar, and the Herald
would have seen that he had a plane in
the ring where he could have a good
view. The dispatches do not state as
to whether His Excellency took a band
beating the drum or not, but he is not
much up to the fun in such a dance if
he failed to do it.
The lectures in the institute course
will be delivered on Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday evenings of
next week. They will be held in the

B Sl M C B A Q and Plattsmouth
and Southwestern Comments'
The Pawnee Enterprise comments in
the following :
The night operator at Dorchester
was laid off thirty days lor sleeping
thirty minutes. One dollar and fifty
cents a minute is a pretty dear snoose.
A corps of B. & M. surveyors are
working ou a line from Beatrice west
which will run up Swan Creek, and
cross Saline and the counties west.
The Plattsmouth and Southwestern
project, of which mention lias hereto
fore been made in these columns, is
taking such shape as to insure complete
accomplishment at no distant day. It
is a railroad scheme originating in
Plattsmouth, and has the energetic
spirit and liutmcial backing of the pro
gressive people of that thriving town.
The proposed line will start at Platts
mouth, running to Avoca, in Cass
county, south to Syracuse, in Otoe coun
ty, passing on to Beatrice, uage, to
Fairbury, in Jefferson, and thence even
tually into Kansas. Surveyors are now
in the field and books for subscriptions
will be opened in Plattsmouth on the
21st of August, the prospect being that
stock will be rapidly taken.
The Grand Island Times, in speaking
of the movements of the B.& M. rail
road company, has this to say: "One
of these projects is to connect her muni
liue in Nebraska with Grand Island,
and to push on through Sherman coun
tv into the cattle grazing districts of
the Northwest. The B. & M. has large
landed interests at stake in several of
the counties north and west of Hall,
and she is not going to allow these in
terests to sutler bv reason of any want
of enterprise on their part The in
creasintr cattle shipments and the im
mense business being developed in the
Black Hills create an incentive . tco
strong for the B. & M. company to
resist. She is bound to build, and that
righi away. The Times fully believes
she will build to Grand Island as her
Hawkeye: Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy is steady at 123j?. Last year
this company placed $750,000 to the
credit of the renewal account, maintain
ed its sinking funds and 8 per cent di
vidends, and carried over a surplus of
$381,738 from its traffic operations, as
well as all its net land receipts of $1,
229,724. This year 8 per cent dividends
will call for $437,000 more than last
year, while the interest account will be
decreased by a few thousand dollars,
making the net increased charges for
an S per cent dividend about $400,000.
The gain in the net earnings the first
six months of the year has been about
$1,300,000 equauliug the increased div
idends called for an $900,000 besides,
or 1& per cent upon its $70,000,000 of
capital stock. The crops are likely to
be better this year than last upon this
line, and should the present gains con
tinue, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy
stock would earn the 9 per cent more
in 1883 than in 1882.

being accustomed to reducing them to
writing, very often when you do sign a
printed or written contract you do so
without fully understanding its con
tents. The Nebraska and Iowa Insurance
Company of Omaha, Nebraska, have
adopted a new system in this State.
They have printed . upon the back of
their Policies a copy of the application
and note given by you for insurance
when your application and note are re
ceived by the Company ; they fill out a
copy of your application on back of
.Policy in detail, all the property insur
ed, just the same as the application
signed by you, and gives every answer
just as you have given it. They also
nil out a copy of your note or notes.
When this is received by you you have
the policy, a copy of your application, a
copy of every contract between vou
and the Company. This is done to avoid
havisg mistakes uncorrected between
you and tue Company during the term
of this insurance.
Your application is the basis of your
contract between you and the Com
pany. Often mistakes or errors have crept
u which, i f not corrected, would vitiate
your insuiance; in other words, you
have no insurance at all, and you could
not detect it. unless you had a copy of
the contracts between you and the Com
pany. Examine your contracts with us
carefully, and if any errors or omis
sions should be found we would take
pleasure in correcting them, and re
spectfully ask the patronage of ths property-holders
of Nebraska. Respect
fully, J. T. IlHRT.Sec'y and Mang'r.
