This will give the young metropolis a
splendid outlet to the north, without

The Franchise Granted by an Over

At an early hour yesterday morniug
it became evident that the proposition
to grant the right to the Capital City

great mass of citizens turned out to
make sure of it.
The vote polled was as follows by
First ward 547
Second ward 393
Third ward 460
Fourth ward 400
We are glad to see the capital city
showing such evidences of enterprise in
unanimously sanctioning a much need
ed though expensive improvement.
The Presbyterian Church Choir Social
to Le held this evening, at ltock
wood Hall, will be mainly devoted to
a good social time and the refresh
ment tables. The members of the
choir have selected the following im
promptu programme to open the even
ing and make their guests feel at home.
Doxology By the choir.
Duett "I would that my love"
Mrs. Wise and Miss Pollock.
Duett Cornet and Organ Mr. Clark
Solo "Jesus, lover of my Soul,"
Duettt Selected Mrs. Agnew and
Solo "Marguerite" Mr. Bushnell.
Chorus "When the Bridegroom
Comes,', By the Choir.
Mr. "William Secor of Farragut, Fre-
rcont county, has recently patented a
machine for harvesting and husking
corn. The machine is designed to be
driven over the row and the ears arc
stripped from the stalks as the machine
passes along by radial wings which are
connected by a rotating shaft. The
ears are then carried by an endless
apron to rolles located at the back part
of the machine which strips the husks
from the ear and deposits the latter in
a receiver. The machine will receive
a through test the coming fall and
should it prove practicable will be a
blessing to the farmer in the saving of
labor, sore fingers and "sich." Council
Melinda Nevowatny, the girl who
had tue experience trying to work out
at Eight Mile Grove, and who run
away lrom there and tried to swim the
creek and get home, is having some
more experience. She has made up her
mind that Plattsmouth is too smalt a
town and that she will live in Omaha,
but her folks watch the trains to pre
vent her going. This morning she
started off with her grip and footed it
to La Platte, where 6he tired ou and
was persuaded to come back home; her
next break will probably be to go to
Oreapolis anp take the the train there

Last night a Herald man met Mr.
Greuell at the I'axton, and asked the
veteran manager of state fairs and pro
moter of fruit growing In the state,
what the prospects were for the coming
Mr. (irenell, who has been active in
Ptate fair directing for the past fifteen
ycarp. replied: Prospects were never
ho good as they arc now. There seems
to be an interest awakened all through
the State that never obtained until
now, and the railroads are giving us
very good rates "
"Naturally the state should have a
bigger fair each year, as it settles and im
proves, I suppose," said the newspaper
Yes," replied Mr. Grene.ll, ''and I be
lieve that borne parts of the state, par
ticularly the western, expect to make
better exhibits than ever before."
"Will the wet season make a differ

inquired the reporter.

cereals will be especially fine; and gar

and I believe we will have liner range

Speaking of other features the mana

negotiations for a field of fist horses.

Hurrah! The bridge builders are now
in our vicinity, and we shall soon be
deprived of the blissful privilege of
opening and closing numerous gates as
we go to and from Weeping Water.
This is a bridge on an important
thoroughfare; as it is on one of our
star routes, and also the main road
from Plattsmouth lo Lincoln." The loss
of this bridge has occasioned our citi
zens much inconvenience; but we pre
sume our commissioners have been as
expeditious as possible under the cir
cumstances, and we should feel thank
ful that our troubles in this direction
are at an end.
We understand that all the bridges
in this vicinity will receive necessary
repairs before the builders leave the
Although the weather was very un-
propitious, we understand a large ma
jority of our citizens attended the camp
meeting held at Weeping Water and
enjoyed a good time.
The recent rainy weather will prove
a big thing for corn, but will injure
some small grain which the farmers
have not been able to stack vet.
Small grain is yielding well; many
pieces of oats are going to yield fifty
bushels per acre, and wheat eighteen
to twenty, and some exceptional pieces
"Apples!" "Want to buy any ap
ples?'' is the cry which almost daily
resounds through our streets from the
numerous apple peddlers with which
our country abounds.
We can say, that as far as we have
noticed, with scarcely an exception,
that the fruit they cay is very fine,
and speaks well for Nebraska as a
fruit growing State.
The pic nic to which we referred in
our last passed off very pleasantly, and
was one of 'the most enjojable occa
sions of the season.
Mr. John Hart, Miss Mary Mapes,
Miss Clara Holenbeck, Mrl Samuel
Richardson and Mr. L. R. Tyson, all of

the enterprise of its teaching frater

about next, time, we subscribe ourself.
