Dec. 20 ljeoff .
At half pa-t twelve o'clock today the
citizens of Plattsmouth were throughly
alarmed. The gathering storm in the
north and west after the intense heat
of the forenoon was anxiously ob
served by almost everyone, and we cer-
f tamly had good cause for grave appre
hensions. The black, tossing, boiling
clouds were driving along, apparently
dividing north of the city, one half
sweeping directly southward over Cass
county, and the other half south east.
Wheu the storm struck the city there
was a momentary gust of wind which
sent the timid to the cellars aud made
the stoutest hold their breath for a mo
ment. Happily this was all, for a
heavy, steady wind blew for an hour
from the north, accompanied by a very
heavy rainfall; no damage was done;
the ground was thoroughly soaked
with water, the thrift' truck patch
was laid over with its toes to the north,
tha famished cisterns, if any there
were, were replenished and everybody
i left to conjecture how this formida
ble looking storm served our neighbors
on all sides.
Since writing the foregoiag a nracr
is flying about the city that Line la,
(Nebraska,) was struck with a toinad
about eleven o'clock, and the city bacly

ald reporter, at the B. & M. telegraph
head quarters, the Herald learned
iroui headquarters at Lincoln that the
wind storm did no damage at that
point, and that there was very little
rain in that locality, although the wires
were down for a brief period they were
iu good working order shortly, undno
especial damage has been reported ai
any point. The Herald is pleased to
be able to assut e our patrons that all
