. "Gentlemen, notice of this meeting
has been in the papers of this city for
the last two days, iind yet there are no
more than thirty-five present here to
night." These remarks were truthfully
uttered at the meeting before last. Citi
zens of Plattsmouth turn out tonight and
let us see how many are interested in tl.e
welfare of our city.
As showing the deflection of the
earth's surface the following example ic
given that may interest arithmeticians
"If a railroad train on the parallel of 45
runs at the rate of forty miles per hour,
t A lla .m .
wnat wouia ue me lateral pressure per
ton of the weight of the train on the sid-
of the rails if both were on the same lev
el. Answer: 0.38 of a pound per ton of
2,000." Ferrel gives an example of thi
kind, and finds that a river one mile in
width, flowing in latitude 45 at the
rate of four miles per hour, will be 1.2
inches higher at the right-hand bank
than at the left-hand bank.
Cut this out. A square white flag
indicates clear, or fair weather. Squan
blue flag indicates rain, or snow. Black
triangular flag indicates temperature only,
Above white or blue flag it indicates
warmer weather, and below it indicates
colder weather. When not displayed at
all the indications are the temperature
will remain stationary, or that it will not
vary five degrees from the same hour vi
of the preceding day. White flag witl
black square in center indicates a sudden
and decided fall in temperature, or a bad
storm. The indications extend from 7
o'clock a. m. of one day to 7 o'clock a
m. of the following day.
An English firm advertises funeral
sermons for sale. The clergyman who
has to officiate at a funeral can therefore
buy his sermons ready made, and stand
ing at the narrow grave can read aloud:
Once again we see a lovea form wrap
ped in the cold cerements of death; once
again the bells tell a tribute to a van
ished soul; once again the relentless earth
closes above weary hand?, weary feet, a
weary heart that are now at rest forever.
When I look back upon the exemplary
life of this man, upon whose grave the
silent dew will fall tonigh, I can say
that I have been proud to call him
friend." And then, . when a bereaved
ralative passes him a note saying that the
deceased is a woman, he can take another
sermon from his peckct and go on as
though nothing bad happened.
Knights of Labor Exproas Tholr

their trouble, in their struggle for justice
and right; hoping they may win and not
be crushed under the heel el the grinding
monopoly, the "Burlington."
Resolved, That we censure and acorn
any aad all who may voluntary or other
wise take the place of the striking en

as being traitors to the cause ot labor and
to all instincts of mankind.
Resolved, Further, that we denounce
the mayor f our city for refusing to ap
point tax-paying citizens as special po
lice, but instead did appoint a mob of
mercenaries furnished by the "Burling
ton" from elsewhere, known as "Pinker-
ton murderers, whose duty, so far, has
been to provoke trouble. We deny that
there has been or is any danger of the
company's property being molested here,
unless by the murderous thugs and
thieves they themselves have imparted.
Resolved, That a copy of these resolu
tions be given to the press of Plattsmouth
for publication, the Brotherhoods of en

The prospect is that the Cass county

We understand that there is a movement
on foot to buy a new fair ground, and
that one half the money has been raised
for that purpose, and from indications
the balance will be forth-coming when
necessary. We are glad of this for the
reason that we need, and need badly,
fair ground that will be placed upon
tract of level land, so that every one in
side of the onclosure can see every foot
of the track and enjoy the races. As this
will be the only fair in Cass county, let
our entire people try and make it the best
fair yet held.

Our Total Coast Line.
The Pacific ocean boundary of the
United States has a greater extent of
ccast line than the Atlantic fcliore. The
aggregate of our shore line on the Pacific
is 12,734 miles, while a the Atlantic it
is 11,800 miles, and on the Gulf of Mex
ico 6,843. It was the annexation of
Alaska that promoted the Pacific coast
to a higher figure than the Atlantic,
Alaska having 0,830 miles of coast line.
If the lake boundary is added it gives us
a total coast line not very short of twice
the circumference of the earth. Chicago
