A quiet, modest, unassuming youth
stood on Main street calmly gazing west
ward at noon today. His bosom heaved
with manly emotion, his eyes were ablaze
with patriotic ordor and his lips moved
convulsively as with clenched hands lie
muttersd: "I am twenty-one today and
my name is Crif."
Yesterday afternoon two men, who
appeared to be slightly hilarious, were
driving a span of horse up Main street.
When near Sixth, going west, the horses
took fright and galloped at a terrific rate
of speed up the lull, with the men waving
their arms and yelling like Comanclu s
on the war path. It is likely there will
be a coroue:"s inquest on their disfigured

telephone pole. This performance will
be necessary for the act of placing a new
switchboard at the telephone exchange,
which will have the capacity of accom
odating one hundred subscribers. The
mystery will be completed at 12 v. si. to
night. The St watt Theatre Company will
make a week's stand in this city, opening
on the '20th of this month. They play
"Little Duchess,'' "Uncle Dau'l," "After

We hate to extole a man to such a
degree that it places him on a pedestal of
fame far above his fallow men, but if
there is any person on whom the bishop
should place his hands with reverential
awe, that person is Frank Carruth. For
today he performed a public act that
deserved to be eulogized and handed
down for future generations to emulate.
But why dwell further on the subject
he took a shovel and cleaned the cross
ing. As a certain indication of Platts
mouth's future greatness and gradual in
crease in business, we may mention the
fact that about eighteen months ago.
when Mr. S. Buzzell took charge of the
telephone exchange, there were but
thirty subscribers, now there are sixty.
Mr. Buzzell is also entitled to a good
deal of credit for the increase of patron
age, as his prompt, energetic business
manners adds greatly to the efficiency of
the telephone exchange.
Dan O'Kourkc, who has been on a
visit to his parents in this city, returned
to Missouri Valley, Iowa, today. Dan
opened a tailer shop' in that thriving
littl burgh a short time ago and has al
ready secured a large number of palrot s.
If the citizens of Missouri Valley have
been in want of a first-c'ass workman, one

United States, for cutting, sewing and

THE HCRALO'S HOROSCOPE
Appreciated, Accepted, Acknowl
edged. Tins Ilr.uAi.D is prospering. It is get
ting there very rapidly, with an even
gait and Lot a "break." In the past we
have made a few bad breaks, but we aro
now getting accustomed to tho pace ami
our efforts arc being appreciated. What
could le more gratifying to thn editor
of a paper than the following record for
one day, last Saturday:
( ED All ( REEK.
C. W. Snyder subscribed for daily,
copy for himself, and weekly for his
brother, ordered job work, paid iu ad
vance, total amount, twenty dollars.
Ceo. E. Saylcs, daily; J. B. Tipton, (de-m.)
Mr. Draper, (dem.) Kd. Seiver, 11. In
held' r, Jacob Wildi, Dr. Duff and John
Inhalder, (agon H2 years) subscribe for
the weekly. All these gentlemen paid
in advance and are therefore entitled to
a few sweet phrases but we will spare
them the infliction and simply state what
is well known, and that is, that they are
highly respected membeis of the county
in which they live, as well as esteemed
for their business probity by the w hose
sale merchants and others with whom
they have dealings.
In addition to these new subscribers
we collected iu about SIT.-; of old debts.
This statement can be authenticated and
will bn proved with pleasure it any
doubter calls at this office. We are un
der obligations for this fortunate tide of
circumstances to Mr. C. B. Wilson, who
it now attending to subscriptions aud
collections, and it is uo exaggeration t
state that there was never a rustler from
Biutlerville could rustle iu the collection
line like Wilson.
If energy and money will do anything
our subscription list on the weekly will
be increased at leat 1200 in Cass county
in two months from new. We have al
ready made arrangements for a new press
and other innovations in the paper,
which we have no doubt will be appre
ciated by our patrons.
CHEESE, LIMBERCER CHEESE.
Mr. Madolo Plays a Winning: Hand
In Saturday's issue appeared the fol
lowing: A suspicious parcel) was left on the
street car a few days ago, which some
thought might contain dynamite, and for
that reason no one would touch it for
thn e or four days. Finally a committee
was formed with Madolc as analyist. On
opening the package he pronounc- d it
cheese, or cheese it. The committee de
voured a portion of it, and shipped the
rest of it by express. C. O. I)., to Mr. Ma
dole's residence, who no doubt will ap
preciate their thoughtful kindness.
Mr. Madole took the joke in gook part
and returned the cheese, which was lini
bcrger, to the senders, also two copies of
Nebraska statutes on which twenty-five
cents postage was due, which was the ex
act amount Mr. Madole had to pny for
his express package. L. C. Mercer and
('has. Harris, the -'two Dromios," who
received tho cheese and statutes, have
had the laugh turned on ihein now, but
we await the next turn of the cards, al
though so far as the game has progresse 1
Mr. Madole holds the trump.

our readers. Write plainly on one side of

your name printed with the article say

personal; we wont news and not tho pow

against your neighbor. It docs not mat

The B. A- M. It Co. will extend
their tracks and sidings in the spring
wJiich will necessitate the removal of the
ancient land-marks in the vicinity of the
depot that disgrace the face of our fair
city. When this is done the lamp post
that stands at the east end of Main street
and whose mournful attitude suggests
the idea of a paralyzed appraiser of the
B. & M. depot, will be removed to Win
tersceen Hill and shed a brilliant halo
around that romantic spot.
An article which appeared in Tiik
1Ikuali February u in reply to a criticism
of the Journal, was published in full in
the last issue of the Louisville Observer,
the editor of which paper comments as
'We reprint the above from the Platts
moutli Daily IIuku.d as a mattt-r due to
the craft. A man that is constantly find
ing fault with others never stops once to
look at his own blunders. The devil
despises a critic and would fire him out
of his kingdom."

EVERY KIT COUNTS.
AnothherC. A R. Volley-Every Snot
Kuitok lliiii.i.i: I sec by the Journal
of the 10th that Mr. Sherman says:
"The man who at this age feels the no
cessitv of anoloiri.m" for !:avmir been ft
I'uioii soldier during the late unpleasant
ness, must be a crank, but such was the
effect of Chaplain Lozier's political bun
comb last night. To say nothing of the
poor taste of an orator talking politics
under the faUe guise of "patrotism," be
fore a mixed audience, most of his ha
rangue on political alfairs could have no
possible good result."
Chaplain Lozicr did not say anything
that any one ceuld justly attribute that
way. The Chaplain was a good ami
brave soldier, and a loyal citizen. It
seems to make a great difference to Mr.
Sherman as to which side the apology is
made. Chaplain Lozicr gave the old
comrades credit for all they done, and
very properly eulogized thtm for what
they had gone through for the preserva
tion of the Union and the Old Finer. He
had no apologies to offer for his txcel
lency, President Davis; he left that for
Mr. Sherman to do, as anyone can see by
reading the issue of the 10th imt:
"Does he expect a people, w ho lost, in
proportion to population, three to one
on the Union ide, in a few years to ut
terly forget the part they took iu that
struggle and to be ashamed of it and to
show no reverence for the memory of the
host that sacrificed themselves in the
holocaust of battle? Surely tli com
monest instinct of human nature revolts
at tke idea! Suppose .It IT Davis did kiss
and weep over an old confederate llsg,
and his audience followed suit. Is there
anything astonishing iu that?"
Chaplain Lozicr said wa have no ob
jections to tlieni weeping and gushing
over all the rebel flags they wanted to,
but all that heard him kntws the place
that he wanted weeping done at. The
Chaplain has left it to Mr. Sherman to
apologize to Jeff Davis and his tritorous
followers and for their actions and well
has it been done. We do not belivo there
is any room in this great big glorious and
prosperons land of ours but far one Hag,
and thai is the old stars and stripes, aud
if Mr. Sherman, Jeff Davis or any other
man, or set of men, think so, they will
find their mistake to their sorrow.
It has not been but a few months since
a certain faction thought they would
raise a red flag with what result? His
tory will record the death of about forty
law abiding aud loyal citezens, and the
hanging of seven consummate traitors to
our government. Wc do not believe that
Jeff Davis, or auy person, or faction of
men, have unT right to set up in this
land of ours any other flag than the old
star and stripes. Aud if Jeff Davis or
any any of faction of man want to weep
over a Hag, kt it be the old stars aud
stripes, and then every old true Union
soldier, and loyal citizen in this- land of
ours will help them weep; but with no
other ihig should any pci son or faction
of men be allowed to parade and set it
above the old flag of our ustion. We f;it
treason, is treason, we don't care whether
it is iu Mississippi, Illinois, or Nebraska,
it is a shame to allow it in asy state,
count' or city. How long would it have
been if the authorities of Chicago had let
certain factions meet and harangue tli3
people, on anarchy, (or properly speak
ing treason) and parade with their com
munist flags, until they wounld have had
sn armed mob to contend with that
would have cest thousands of lives?
Treason is like au incendary fire, if taken
at first it is easily subdued, but if let go
it will consume all around it. We think
our government should step in and put
out every fire of treason where ever it
may be lighted, no matter in w hat state,
county or city it may be started.
