The Washington Inaugural Banquet
and II ry Pole entertainment given at the
opera house the nights of April 30, and
May 1, by the ladies of the Presbyterian
church, were notable successes in the wnj
of entertainments.. The banquet, as Iin.
been fuily detailed, was the grandest
occasion ever held in Plattsmouth, and
drew a great audience, and complimeut
from all sides. The May Pole entertain
ment last night was the finishing of the
concern and proved a pleasant place ti
be for the large number in attendance.
The musical performances by the Kindt r
garten, under the direction and training
of Miss Majors, was an emphatic success,
and very praiseworthy. Instrumental
music was furnished by Miss Martin.
The May Pole dance by a number o'
young ladies and gentlemen was a pretty
feature of the evening, and was followed
by the serving of refreshments. The re
.ceipts on the two evenings were large,
and they will long be remembered.
"We will offer for the next Thirty days Lots in South Park to

In nearly every paper nowdays you
see the startling announcement that some
one has suddenly become a sub treasurer
owing to hi3 hick in holding the winning
ticket in a Louisiana State lottery draw
ing. If you are of an observant nature
ami have opport unities to give your ge
nius plenty of rope you will discover that
one of these startling notices generally
does duty in every paper in the country
before it is finally retired upon a pension
to give place to one of fresher attraction.
There are about 80,000,000 people in
these United Status. In the course of a
year about 80 of them draw any appre
ciable prizes in said lottery Do you
want to take your chances for the shoe
of the millionth man at a dollar a whirl?
If you do, go in for it. There are a

The encouragement to come to all
kinds of business and enterprises in this
city from the establishment of the elec
tric motor, manufacturing and lighting
plaats, which it is proposed to establish
this summer immediately and which
has been successfully canvassed hcre,make
it a scheme that should be backed by
every citizen with influence and capital.
The plan has been fully explained in these
columns, and liberal support has been
had from those to become stockholders.
Almost without a doubt the enterprise
will develope quickly into the largest
plant of the kind in the west. The ben
efits to bo derived will not stop with an
electric motor street railway, and arc and
incandescent lights, and the manufactur
ing of incandescent lamps, and the em
ploying altogether of about one hundred
people, but the advertisement which it
would give to the city would be broader
and more acceptable than any other kind
conceivable. A meetiug of the stock
