BOARD OF TRADE MEETING
PI?.ttmouth Points Proudly to her
The pontoon bridge will be located
either TOO or 1,700 feet south of th rail
road bridge and about a mile in a direct
line from Main street. It will be built
in about two months from the time the
bonds arc granted.
Col. S. N. Stewart wants the city to
grant $10,000 bou ! to aid him in his
speculative enterprise. $2,000 to be paid
one year after the bridge is built and
put in placu, and $2,000 a year for four
years afterward?, he promising to keep
the bridge in thorough working order
during that time.
.Such a bridge would be of incalcuable
beneiit to this city, and they are used all
through Europe and over every river of
any importance in all oriental countries
where civilization has reached. This
bridge will be the first of its kind ever
built over thu Missouri. It will be com
posed of scows or boats 24xlG feet and
can be built for $20,000, which will be
at the bridge company's expense. The
bridge company would require new
bo:its every five years. Tha fare for
teani3 would probably be twenty-fivo
cents each way and pedestrians five cents
for going and returning.
Circulars would be distributed for
thirty miles in every direction among the
farming community and sign-posts erect
ed indicating the direction of the bridge
Ten of our piouiinent citiz-ns have
bi'en appointed, to confer with Col
Stewart and listen to his proposition which
will be in writing, and look after the
intrreits of the tax-payers of the city by
seeing that the bridge company giye
bonds for tha constant repair of the
bridge for a specified length of time,
They will report at 7:30 tomorrow night

Col. Stewart spoke at great length con
cerning his sensible system of naming
streets of whic h we haye already madt
mention, namely the centre street of n
city to be called "Central Avenue" all
streets north to be called "Avenues," and
to be numbered consecutively all streets
south to be called "Corso's." (Corso is an
Italian word meaning avenue or boule
vard.) Dr. Shipmaa, Mr. Waugh and Mr.
Baeck have been appointed a committee
to investigate the mutter and submit
their report to the city council for their
approval. The following diagram ex
plains the system:
2- Fifth tr Street.
The matter cf building this bridge is
of vital importance to the future pros
perity of this city. It is the first round
of the ladder by which Plattsmouth may
achieve greatness. It wa3 shameful to
witness the indifference of our business
men in this great project by their absence
at the meeting last night. Go tomorrow
night and investigate the matter aud
then if it meets with your approval go
ahead. Let the sewers be built, let the
streets be paved, let the money flow.
Increase your business by giving employ
ment to about 500 additional urtisam
and laborers. Increase your commerce
by getting the trade from miles in every
direction on the Iowa -shore that now
diifts to Glenwood and Council Bluffs.

The Chicago papers are bothering
oyer the question: 4 Can a man who
has taken from fire to ten drinks of
whiskey a day fr four or Are years,
top suddenly drinking ?" Of course he
can. A little self-control la needed. If
he has not eaten hardly any food for a
week, let him swallow some eggs with
out tha yolks being broke, that are
soaked in vinegar Crosse fc Black well's
is preferable. Cover the eggs and vine
gar with plenty of Cayenne or black
pepper. Rest the body after iho first
and second dose,, which should be two
or tinea eggs each time. Drink carefully,
but plentifully, of milk nnd cocoa until
you think the stomach is cipable of re
taining food, then go ahead, but don't
gorge. A few oranges through the day
will be beneficial as well us plenty of
milk, cocoa or water thes will satisfy
the craving for something to drink, as
wall as nourish and stimulate the di
gestive organs. If the stomach will not
retain the first or second doae, persist
until it does. Exercise your will power
nnd determination. Take a little exer
cise through the day, and when night
comes walk at a rapid gate until you
feel fit to drop from exhaustion, then go
to bed. You will dream and kick and
toss about in your sloep and wake early
the next morning and want a drink.
That's where your resolution comes into
play. Don't touch a drop of intoxi
catinir liu'ior even if you feel near
death's door. That night you will
sleep a great deal better than the night
before and the next day you will feel all
right and have no desire to " bowl up.
In two or three days from that you cuu

After their noon repast many or the

The church was comfortably filled
with children at th children's meeting.
All seemed deeply interested and an

many would be glad to haye the services
repeated every day.
The young were urged at the oveiung
service to remember their Creator in the
days of their youth. ' Some forty or fifty
were willing to come forward and express
their desire for the prayers of Christians.
Many eves were filled with tears at the
scene and many hearts were made glad
by the hope that they would become

Two old ragmen are going around the
city with a wagon that is drawn by two
poor horses that resemble a sketch of
Pegasus drawn by an artist who had suf
fered for a long time from delireum tre
mens. Every few moments the Shylock
driver will whack their hide with his
whip as though he was dusting a carpet.
He might as well be whipping a clothes
horse with a rag thrown over it. The
poor animals are so accustomed to hard
ship and cruelty that they treat their
punishment as a huge joke. They remind
one of the lines on humility: "So doth
the fragrant sandal bow in meek forgive
ness to its doom, and o'er the axe, at
every blow, shed ia abundance rich per
fume." The perfume in their case is im

This waist is designed to meet tlic requirements of ladies who
cannot, comfortably, wear a still and rigid cornet, while it can LcMorn
with as much comfort as an ordinary drees waist. It will give tho
same elegance of contour as tho heaviest honed corset in the market,
while the stays are so arrarged that they will give fujij)ort to the Lack
and spine and in nowise interfere with the fuidom and comfort
ot the wearer. The weight of the clothirg is transferred from tho
hips to the shoulders by means of the shoulder-straps, which are ad
justable to suit any form or length of waist.
