...2 THIRD DAY A SUCCESS.
Vh Fin Stock Exhibit the Best
: Ever Witnessed in the County.
Every Stall Occupied.
Excellent Display By Plattsmouth
and Foreign Business Houses.
A Large Crowd To-day.
This, the Twenty-second annual fair of
Cass county, is said to be, by many of
the oldest settlers of the county who
have been members of the agricultural
society since its organization, the most
successful of their expositions. The new
grounds, which can be reached conven
iently from every quarter, are now in
first-class condition in every respect. The
city has been crowded with visitors each
day, so, from all appearances, the man
agement deserve great credit for bring
ing itinto such prominence and making
it an attraction which will aid the city in
The work in preparing the race course
for the accommodation of fast drivers
lias absorbed much of the finances of the
driving park association, but the track is
now equal to any in the state. All horse
men report favorably of it, and from all
appearances it could not be much im
proved. The grand stand, which is sub
stantially built at the west side of the
course, is sulTiciently large enough to seat
from four to five hundred people, and is
built in such a way that a satisfactory
view can be had of all the races.
A large agricultural hall has been
erected on the grounds, and within the
last two weeks an art hall has also Wen
built which adds much to the appearance
of things. The building is octagonal in
shape, with a winding stair in the center
reaching the top where a platform is
built for the band. The building is
about sixty feet in height and a delight
ful view of the grounds and surrounding
country can be had from the too.
A sutncient number ot stalls and pen
have been erected on the grounds for the
accomodation of all stock which will b
exhibited at any time. Ten additiona
stalls have been erected since the open
ing of the fair to supply the demand.
The art hall, which all thought would
be sulliciently large to accommodate the
business men and others, here, has found
ready applicants for every vacant stand
and everything is filled. The following
firms of this city, aud others are repre
In the centre of the building, facing
the south door, is a fine display of ladies'
dresses, neatly arranged, from the store
of F. Herrmann. The stand has attract
ed the attention aud won the admiration
of all the ladies.
Adjoining that, to t'ic left, the cuter
prising firm of O. P. Smith & Co. have
made a fine selection from their immense
stock of wall paper, drugs, perfume, aud
fancy goods. Misses Xellie Simpson and
Rose McCauley are . waiting upon the
customers who make selections from the
stock of fancy goods.
The display of boots and shoes by
Peter Merges added much to the appear
ance of things in that vicinity, and that
gentleman shows good taste in his ar
rangement of the goods he has on exhi
Messrs. E. G. Dovey & Sons have
dressed up the stand occupied by their
selection of carpets, rugs and lace cur
tains which gives the place every appear
ance ot a neat parlor. The differeLt
patterns of carpets arc good.
M. B. Marphy & Co. have a stand
among the many others there, in which
there is a display of crockery and glass
ware which eclipses anything in that line
we have ever seen in the city. The dis
play is mostly imported goods from
Mr. Jas. M. Muir, who recently arrived
in the city to take charge of the "Xew
Home" sewing machine business here for
that company.has showed up the many ad
vantag-s of their machines to perfection.
Mr. Muir assisted by his wife, are show
ing a-l kinds of fancy work to the public.
With the arl of the attachments, all
kinds of embroidery work is finished up
to perfection with the machines, and
bottouliules and hat crowns can be
worked as neatly as by hand.
Mr. G. B. Kempster has charge of the
music u instruments exhibited. lie is
agent for the best piano company in the
cast, and has on exhibition seveial fine
Mr. H. M. Gault, who is the only jew
eler represented there, ha3 made an at
tractive selection from his fine stock.
The firm of Richey Bros., lumber deal
ers, is also represented there and they
have several finished doors, windows nd
shutters on exhibition.
Mr. J. V. Weckbach has made a fine
showing and has his stock well repre
sented. Carpets and ladies' wear are
nicely arranged and attracted the atten
tion of many.
Mr. W. A. Boeck has a complete dis
play of boots andjslioes. Every style of
the m iny in his stock is represented and
the goods neatlv arranged.
One of the most attractive features in
the building is the tower built of canned
goods from the Plattsmouth Canning
The furniture house of I. Pearl man is
creditably represented. -
The fancy work on exhibition in one
Btand is owned by Miss. Anoie. Gorder,
Mrs. C II. Smith, Miss Mary Goos, Mrs.
Mahoney and Mrs. Wolhfarth. The dis
play Bpeaks well for their good taste.
A crazy quilt made by a little girl 11
years old attracted the attention of many
Miss Birdie Irish has a display of fine
oil paintings which exhibit a rare ability
in that style of work.
Miss Lelia Thomas has specimens of
her painting on exhibition. The work,
for the kind, is superior to any we have
seen in the city, and we congratulate her
on her excellent talent. Mr. Chas.
Whitney has several paintings in the same
stand which show a talent for such work
which cannot be much excelled. He has
neyer had any instructions, and the work
Last but not least, we noticed work
from the needle of Grandma Todd
mother of A. B. Todd. Among sevcra
other articles which we much admired
were crazy quilts which she must have
worked on for months to complete. They
were the handsomest we have seen.
In the agricultural hall, the fruit dis
play excelled all others, and was acredi
to the exhibitors.
The stock on the grounds far sur

ia my nbsence, when I quietly Lied down
the back street Lome, there to lie down to
pleasant dreams for a few days, but with a
resolve to never elose both eyes at the same
time. 1 made some otber resolves, too; one
was not to have a doctor, another not to
yield to the torture of a sweat. Wednesday
afternoon I stood firm, and so did the fever,
which, by night, had reached, at a galloping
rate, the acme of heat.
"Gradually I relented, and at first consented
to take moderate foot wash, but my wife had
the mustard in the water before I knew it.
Presently I felt little drops of perspiration
oozing out here and there. I again yielded a
little and drank a cup of orange leaf tea, and
in a few minutes was unconsciously floating
in a sea of moisture. My head was bursting
and my back breaking. What could I do?
Nothing but lie there and submit to frequent
orange leaf teas. For about five hours I suf
fered the tortures of a miniature sheoL I
called lustily for ice water, but there was
none to give. I asked for lemouade, bat it
was refused unless it was hot. Twenty
four hours was enough for thorough medica
tion. It. had a softening effect upon my feel
ings even toward the doctors. I knew that
the crisis had been passed, but I wanted some
body to take the temperature then.
"It was thought that in the dim, misty fu
ture a certificate of acclimation might come
handy iu dealing with quarantines, etc, and
at the earnest entreaty of my wife I con
sented to let a doctor come in and feel my
pulse. lie came, he saw and declared that
the fever was conquered. I only asked him
for a prescription of ice and lemonade, and
out of the hardness of his heart he said it
could not be hud. This was the evening of
the second day. My appetite had returned,
but on being informed that nothing but
chicken broth could be had for at least forty
eight hours I concluded to go back to bed for
a few days. After being reduced in strength
by the heroic 'sweat,' 1 was powerless to re
sist any edict that the kind nurses saw fit' to
promulgate. I took the broth and let the
well folks have the chicken, but it will be
but a few days before I eat the chicken and
give them the broth. Some people say I
bad only a mild case. That may be, but I
know when I have had enough. I have filled
the spirit if not the letter of the law. Xbw
let this thing stop." Xew York World.

Away back in the ante-bellum days, when
stock company which supjxrted the few star's
visited Cleveland, Ohio, in order to fill an
engagement for an eminent actor who wa3
under his management.
With the aid of the local manager he cast
the piece for the opening night from the
regular stock company, but found that there
was one small part for which there was no
actor left. .
"Larry can play that part all right," said
the local manager; "I'll send over for him.
Here, you Jim! ran across the street and teil
Larry to come right over hero as quick as
"Who's Larry?" inquired Air. McVicker.
"Oh! he's a young fellow who works in a
printing office here and occasionally plays
small parts for me. He'll do it all right."
In a few moments Larry arrived. He was
short of stature and of cadaverous features.
He was in bis shirt sleeves and his hands
bore traces of the composing room, which he
bad just left. Small men are apt to carry
themselves very erect in order to atone, if
possible, for their lack of height, but "Lar
ry" carried himself so straight, that, to use a
nautical term, he "raked aft."
"Do you think you can get yourself up in
this role by to-morrow night?" inquired Mr.
McVicker, handing him a part of about two
