There was a large attendance at the
Christian sociable lat night at Rockwood
hall. The dudes had their dudines there
in flying colors, and all apparently en
joyed themselves. The sociable was
managed a little different from the usual
order, no literary or musical programme
being presented. The evening was spent
by gratifying a craving for ice cream,
strawberries and other luxuries which
were served in abundance. The crowd
did not disperse until a late hour when
all were satisfied with their evening's n
joyment. The sociable was under the
ais;)iees of the ladies' society of the
Switch engine No. 98, which was just
brought from the shops yesterday jump
ed the track last night about 7:15. at the
first switch north of the depot. The tire
of one of the driving wheels slipped and
threw the engine from the track. They
were fortunately running at a slow rate
of speed escaping any very ser;ous injury.
If the locomotive had moved much fur
ther from the track, the tire would surely
have been seyered from the wheel and no
doubt would have caused some bad breaks
and also considerable delay. They soon
succeeded in getting it back in position
again and to the shops where it is now

Will They Celebrate
The Plattsmouth IlfcitAi.Dlast Saturday
makes a pitiful plea to the citizens of
that place to celebrate the 4th, quoting
from its issue of that date we find it say
ing: Somebody is continually wanting to
see if somebody has done anything yet,
and when somebody sees that somebody
else has been looking to see if somebody
has done anything, somebody finally
does nothing, and if they only continue
to look to see what somebody else does,
somebody will certainly get left about
the fourth day of July, 188.-
If a grand celebration here is adver
tised to some extent outside, a large
number will certainly come hero to see
what is going on, if for nothing more
than the novelty of seeing Plattsmouth
get in motion. Rock Bluffs, Weeping
Water and all the great cities in the
vicinity of the metropolis of the county
are energetic enough to have a time
why can't we? We would like to see
Rock Bluffs Weeping Water once over
the loss of a celebration which they
might have had had it ii"t been for that
town up there on the mcuth of the Platte.
If nothing is done, a lot of the people
will go to Weeping Water and Rock
Bluffs to spend their filthy lucre.
If the writer of the above would pack
his grip with a boiled shirt and a clean
pair of socks, and take a pilgrimage to
this city on the 4th, The Eagle will
guarantee him a first-class time and en
tertainment free. A man especially
such a patriotic man is to le pitied for
casting his lot among such people. Come
here, bring your friends, invite your
enemies to come with you, and you will
die happy and patriotic. Cass County
Since the quill artist of the Eagle has
been so sympathetic since he read the
pitiful wail of a Plattsmouth citizen and
has generously opened his heart to us,
without knowing us, avc are waiting for
the 4th to roll around that we may take
advantage of the kind offer. One thing
we do object to, and that is his advice as
to wearing apparel. A representative
from this office will certainly take the
gentleman at his word and accept his
kind invitation. If business is booming
between this date and the 4th, we may
be able to attire as he reauests. but if
only a half way business should fall to
our lot, the boiled shirt may demand
the extent of our finances. If our repre
sentative is obliged to adopt both socks
and shirt and both clean he can only
anticipate his coming, but if he will
kindly diop that clause from the by-law,
he might expect him.
At least, we will promise to send
one representative from here if you
promise not to feel elated over his com
pany and not require so much of him in
the line of good clothes.

"There was a little crowd of us In Kansas

eastern state? and graduates of the eastern
colleges. We formed a set by ourselves.
Some of us were lawyers, some bothering
about real estatj and town lots, some practic

galls as any of the boys were, and 1 well re
member bis telling me one night, as we sat in
my room smoking together, the manner In
which he was working to secure com
mand of language. He said that it was
his practice for an hour or so each day
to open Webster's Dictionary at random and
run down a column or so of words, carefully
studying the meaning of each word and hunt
ing up in the lexicons its derivation and so
forth. You know that in explaining the
meaning of a great many words the diction
ary gives a line or a couplet from Pope or
Johnson, or from some one or more of the
classic authors, and these quotations lngalls
would often commit to memory, especially if
they happened to appeal to his imagination.
Then, too, he would look up in Crabbe's syn
onyms, the words which meant the same, or
nearly the same as the word he bad in mind,
and be would study carefully the nice shades
of difference between them alL He told me
that so far from finding this work tiresome
or disagreeable he took the greatest pleasure
in it, and that he knew it did him inesti
mable benefit, ne considered this practice far
superior, for the purpose of giving one com
mand of his own language, to the old tradi
tional one of translating the Greek and Ro
man classics into English and of then trans
lating thorn back again.
"1 met lngalls years afterward, and he
told me he wus still keeping up the practice.
1 suppose ho is keeping it up now, and that's
where his facility of expression comes from."
