This kind of weather is a little on
the uncertain style and is unprecedented
in Nebraska's history. About the time
you think you are ready to move the
stoves out of the home, you are liable to
be froze out.
The eclips List night eelips.'d any
former eclipse. A good many watched
it from the time it was first visible, about
nine oclock, until the wee, sma" hours,
when it became total We believe the
sight was completely satisfactory, as no
reports to the contrary have been heard.
The parlor of the Y. M. C. A. roouii
was well filled yesterday afternoon by
those who attended the bibl reading by
Mr. Nash. This is tho first series of bible
readings ever given in the city by the Y.
M. C. A., and their importance to tin
Christian cannot be too highly estimated.
Mr. II. C. McMaken informs us that
he has two gangs of men now employed

inches thick, and in s ich abund inco th;it
he will experience no trouble in securing
an amount equal to thy demand. At
present he is as happy as any man.
Miss Odie Mathews, daughter of
Judge Mathews, entertained about fifteen

heartily partaken of.
-The "P. S. C.," or the Platts

recently been organized in our city, will
give another assembly at Fitzgerald's
hall this evening. Strenuous efforts have

the pleasantest affairs of the season. The
lovers of the dance will surely fine a pleas

From all appearances Senator Polk
is kept busily engaged a greater portion
of the time in entertaining his Plntt

John Dillon Coming.
Plattsmouth' favosite comedian, who
has never yet failed to till the opera
house to the doors, has ut last made a
satisfactory datu for riatt-inouth, which
is tomorrow, (Friday; night.
Many people looked forward for the
appearance of John Dillon and his com
pany as the event of the season, and were
much disappointed a week ago to learn
that Le had cancelled a foruier date. As
this votld-renowued actor is so well
known here, it is u.'inecers iry t publish
any if the hundred press commendations
we might print.
Although he is coming upon us on
short notice, we feel confident of the
satisfaction of witnessing reception the
liko of which he never had in Platts
mcir.ii any previous occasion. Let
there be a bumper lr ue on this special
occt.-'.oit. The pbvy in which he wiii
apj ear is said to he a first-class comedy
in every particular. A Manager Young
has exercised every Available monw to !
procure this company, the citizens should
iipr iate his kind efforts and turn out
in n body.
