A Few Plattsmouth Pointers.
Notwithstanding the complaints which
were made during tlic huiiiiikt and uro
still quite frequently heard, of hard
luck m account of tho scarcity of money,
I'latlsmo'ith has witnessed a healthful
and substantial growth, and considerable
general improvement, during the past
year. We have not parsed over '1 lie
city and counted the new buildings etc..
one by one, but wc " have been
here and there enough to .see and appre
ciate the iiiility and number of build
ings which have been built and are at
present under process of construction,
ami we are thoroughly satisfied that no
city in the state has taken a greater step
in th'j pa.-1 twelve months than l'l&tts
motith. An excellent system (and when
we say excellent we mean it) of water
works has been completed and in opera
tion for six months, affording good lire
protection to the city, especially to
the most valuable part, and in the sum
mer blesses the residents with the power
to have green lawns and dust-ridden
The street railway now being con
structed, is and will bo si valuable con
venience to everybody. Two miles of
the track are now complete and cars arc
in operation and spin along at regular
intervals. The track now extends from
tin heart of the city to the fairgrounds
and cemetery and joins Plattsmoth
with her suburban sister, Mercerville.
"When complete the railway line will
have floss communication with the
principal parts of the city, extending
along the avenues and Main street, and
to the depot, and this will add greatly
to the air of business and prosperity
which is settling down over Plattsmouth.
Among the residence property a large
number of beautiful and substantial
houses have been erected during the
summer. They are not the lustily built
houses which characterized Plattsmouth
when she was but a few years old, but
they are substantial and warm, being
built with large airy rooms an I warm
walls, after the latest styles and best pat
tern". Hut few of them are what could
be termed "elegant residences," but they
are well made and indicative of comfort
and ease and have a warm hospitable
appearance, (juitc a number of cozy
dwelling houses have been built by the
laboring men for themselves, and the oc
cupation of all the new buildings iis
soon as complete is positive evidence of
the, increasing population which is noth
In the business blocks, only one of
first-class dimensions has been erected,
but substantial additions have been
m ide to those standing and a few minor
buildings have been erected, but it is a
creditable fact that every store room and
office "in. the city is occupied, and in
some cases crowded, but cupid shoots
his arrow of prediction into the open
business lot and whispers, "Next year it
shall be hid from the sun." And the
season just passing, with the present con
dition of things, points to a coming
season of progress, of which the present
is but an announcement.
And the establishing of the Daily II::n
ai.d is an event which is also chronich.el
with the advance of the past year.
As a security for the retaining of
what our city has already attained in
population and prosperity, Plattsmouth
is the county seat, she has the 1). & M.
shops, the water works, the brick and
tile works, which is a grand affair; the
gas works, the street railwa a pack
ing house, of small porportions which
has just been started, two daily papers.
tw) large canning factories, and variou?
other small manufacturing and contract
Property has, in the 1 .st two years
grcatl- increased in value oyer the en
tire city, and in some cases doubled, but
in no case has the value been questioned
and it is steadily rising, though no great
boom is in progress the change of hands
of real estate is quite lively.
The building season will open next
.spring with the laying of a 30.000 sys
tem of sewerage and the paving of Main
street, which will undoubtedly be fol
lowed by the erection of several large
business blocks, and it is said a new and
first-class depot is on the programme,
while gossip has it that springtime will
bring with it a new railroad to run
from Plattsmouth north to Omaha and
south to conned with the M. P. so as to
giye intercourse, by rail with Nebraska
City and the southwest. "
Wc might still continue in this line to
set forth Pla'tsmoutL's prosperity and an
ticipations, but time forbids, and our re
gard for the welfare of the reading j-'ib-
lic tells us it id time to branch off to
something else ami leave something to
another day. Dut Plattsmouth will un
doubtedly m ike her mark among the
first c'tirs of Nebraska, and prove a lo
cating poi.it for various enterprises, ns
she offers handsome inducements and fa
ilities to all manufacturing enterprises.
THC THANKS OF A NATION.
The Prosidont's Annual Thanks
Washing vox. Oct. 25. President
Cleveland to-day issued the following
The goodness and the mercy of Cod
which have followed the American peo
ple during all the events of the pa-t year
mouth, and did so without even tying
his hands or feet, and all the way here
he fought and barked and bit himself,
and Mr. IJoedekcr had n great effort to
keep from being bit himself and to hold
the man, but he succeeded, and alone,
for all tiie men in the car crowded off to
the other end like a set of cowards. At
the depot, Mr. Ho-deker succeeded in
claim tiieir grateful recognition and SrttiuS j'mie into the depot and here
humble acknowledgment. Ily His om
nipotent power he has protected us from
every national calamity; by His gracious
favor tiie earth has yielded u generous
return to the labor of the husbandman
and every path of honest toil has led to
comfort and contentment; b' His loving
kindness the hearts of our peopl : have
been replenished with fraternal sentime nt
and patriotic endeavor, and by His un
erring guidance we have been directed
in the way of national prosperity.
To the end that we may with one ac
cord testify our gratitude for all there
blessings, I, Grovcr Cleveland, president
of the United States, do hereby ele.-ignate
and set apart Thursday, the 21th day of
November next, as a day of thank --giving
mi 1 pi aver, to be observed by all the
peopl-; of the land. On that day let all
secular work and employment b.j sus
pended, and let our people assemble in
their accustomed places of wort-hip and
with prayer and songs of praise give
thanks to our Heavenly Father for all
that he has done for us; while wc humbly
implore forgiveness of our sins and a
continuance of His mere'. Let families
and kindred be reunited on that dy and
let their hearts be tilled with kindly ( beer
and affectionate reminiscences and be
turned in thankfulness to the sou ice of
all their i i inures and the giver of all
that makes ih day glad and joyous; and
in the niiu-t of our worship and our hap
piness hi us remember the poor, the needy
and the u.il'ortnr.ate, and by our gills of
charity and ready benevolence, let us in
crease th;j number of those who with
grateful hearts shall join in our thanksgiving.
