The Infant Town on The M
Nettled in the beautiful valley of t lie
Weeping Water twenty-two miles south
west of Plattsmouth on the Main line of
tha M. P. It. U. is the little burg of Ne
hawka, in the center of u country noted
for corn, fine blooded stock, Mill improv
ed farms, and as hospitable and highly
cultured a class of people as any country
is blessed with. Nehawka is a business
place of no little importance, her receipts
show up with many of her sister towns
and would do credit to some that are
much larger than herself. One has only
to visit this thriving little town to see
the habit of industry.
The beautiful sloping hills decked
with tine residences adds greatly to the
appearance oi me country, so mucn so
that the people seem to be inspired with
a love of their country and take pride in
arranging their homes in the best possible
manner. The business men of Nehawka
are fully abreast with the times and have
mettle that counts in the affairs of life.
There was no reception committee pre

parea to receive us, ior iney had no
warning of our coining, but we stole sil
ently into the little village an began our
labor. We found that the news of Tim
Trimmer' arrival had spread and it was
soon heralded from house to house.
Owing to the busy day the crowd
could not come forth to welcome us. On
every hand was visible the fact that Ne
i. i .
uaw kii was a live place, as eyery man
seemed to lc too busy to talk a great
lenght of time.
oug auer arriving in the city we
called on Mr. Frank Sheldon, the pioneer
merchant and one of the leading business
men of Nehawka. Mr. Sheldon erected
the first business building there last
March, since then he has occupied it as a
general store, and eujoys a good trade.
.Marshall Bros., hardware merchants,
have just recently opened their store and
the prospect is very flattering.

Several new dwellings are in course of
construction, and reflect credil on those
building them. Among the larger and
more substantial are those of Mrs. A. P,
Weston, at a cost of $3,000; and that o
Jas. Binning and others.
Adjoining town on the south is the fine
uome or lion, Jawience Sheldon, one of
the oldest and wealthiest citizens in the
county. Mr. Sheldon owns over 5,000
acres of laud in this and Otoe counties.
To the north of town lays the fiue farm
of the Hon. S. M. Kirkpatrick. In fact,
the town site is part of Mr. K 's farm
which was donated by that gentleman as
an inducement to locate the town there.
We feel under obligations to Mr. K.

behalf. Wc took dinner at his pleasant
home, where we enjoyed a good meal
and shall remember the courtesies shown
us. Mr. K. has one of the most com
plete libraries in the county, and a fine
collection of geological specimens which
he kindly showed U3. He has also larye
parlors where many evenings are spent by
theyoun folks in social gatherings.
Miss Mary Kirkpatrick informed us that
the young people of that neighborhood
had a well organized Cbatauqua circle
with a membership of eighteen.
Bat we must return to oar subject
Nehawka. She has fine fire clay for mak-
ing brick and a yard will be opened
there soon. They arc also promised a
new ten thousand dollar flouring mill in
the spring. A United Brcthcrn church
is well under way.
When wo tkc into consideration the
fact that Nehawka is a mere infant, be
ing yet under one year old, we were Bur
prised to visit the town and see the
strides she has taken in the way of
Cass County Fair.
Our fair occurs on Sept 18th to 21st,
1888. This is the 22nd annual fair of
the Cass County Agricultural Society,
and from the present indications will be
the best and the largest attended fair
ever held in the county.
A few men composing the Cass County
Driving Park Association, with A. B.
Todd. Pres., II. C. Ritchie, Sec'y.. and
II. B. Windham, Treas., purchased thirty-
six acres of ground south of the city and
fitted up one of the finest tracks to be
found in thb state; and leased the same
io me agricultural society lor ten years
at the nominal sum of $1.00 per year.
Ihese men have done this as citizens
of Plattsmouth and vicinity, simply for
the benefit of the agricultural society,
and for the purpose of increasing the in
terest of all lovers of horses and display
of products raised in our county. But
our citizens who have not contributed to
this most commendable enterprise should
take an active part in the coming fair,
make a dwplay of their merchandise on
the grounds; and by word.act and f'ced.do
all in their power to help. Every citizen
of Plattsmouth is deeply interested, and
the word should go all along the line.
"Whoop her up."
Let our business men close up their
stores on Thursday and Friday afternoon,
bept. 20th and 21st, the big days of the
fair week and give the fair managers two
of the best days held at a Coss county
SCHOOL CIIILPKEX'S DAT.
Wednesday Sept. llth, will be school
children's day, and all school children of
Cass county will be admitted free. This
is one of the annual picnics always of
fered by the society to the little folks,
and one that they always appreciate per
haps better than the older members of
the family. Arrangements will be mf-.de
with the school board to let the children
attend on that day.

the society and some of our business
men, is a handsome structure and is an

Republican Club Meeting.
i ne meeting oftheioung Men's Re-
Club held at the county clerk's office last
night was well attended. A committee
was appointed to ascertain whether the
required number of names could be ob
tained to secure a special train and re-
auceit rates to Malvern on the eveninof
the 14th, so that those wishing to attend
tlie rally held there could return home
the same evening.
They have decided on holding a grand
rally in this city on the 13th of October,
and a committee was appointed to make
arrangements for it.
The club unanimously objected to the
action taken by the county central com
mittee a short time ago, in the appoint
ment of delegates to the float convention
without authority, and considerable dis
satisfaction was manifested by the club.
