Several handsome ornaments have
recently been presented to Secretary

were at the depot to see them off.
Ilallen and Hart's "Later Od"
which was given at the Waterman opera
houe last night, proved to be what was
claimed for it a farce-comedy, full of
fun, and performed by an excellent com
pany. A small but well pleased audience
witnessed the pioduction. Fred Hullen
and Joe Hart, in the principal roles, sus
tained their reputations as clever come
dians, while the singing by different
members of the company was unusually
good. The quartette, and solos by Mr.
Jlcrnard Dyllyn, are worthy of special
mention. The company, although they
were obliged to faco a small house, played
their parts well, and should they
Tcturn, there could be no doubt about
them erettinir a full house.

will be considerable, as he pays for the
use of the opera house, the services of
the band, etc. The jar was filled and
sealed by two disinterested parties, so
that no mortal knows the number con
tained therein. Two ladies and two gen
tlemen have been selected to do tho count

It was reported yesterday by some per
son on the streets, (for what purpose it is
unku nvn) that the play ''Liter On'' was
.1 poor "rotton and rockey'' show, which
I suppose was one reason of the poor
huse they had. I will leave it to those
present if the play was not fully up to
the standard, and just as represented? It
is my endeayors to give the public only
first-class attractions, and shall never
with my knowledge let any company
play in the opera house, to which you
are not perfectly safe in taking your
wives, daughtors and best girls. I have
some of the best attractions coming that
vill ever be seen in Plattsmouth, but if
ur theatre goers expect to see such at
tractions they must give them better
patronage than a $115.00 house, which
