THE DAILY HERALD : PLATTSBIOCTH, NEBXtASKA, MONDAY, MAJ 6, 1889. Tne Evening Herald. OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE CITY. A. KIUIiary. DealUt, Iloekwood Building, Tdtpbone o. W. Dr. Wither, Dentine, I'nlon Block. CITY CORDIALS. Ilejjular meeting of the board of trade tonight. Regular meeting of the board . of trade tonight. The wet weather flag has a gent deal of "all to hung out on a day like today. People who didn't have any Sunday clothes to spread in yesterday were on the lueky aide. Masonery work was commenced this afternoon on the Martin block. The foundation tnrU out 3 feet 8 inches wide. Good sanitary measures for this weather is light clothing, keep in the limine, wear trotrles. and take a bath J o r- ' every twenty-four hours. The "Corner Giocery" company ar rived in town this morning and at noon gave a street parade with thfir band. They play at the opera house tonight. The Young People's Society o Christian Endeavor will meet tonight nt the M. E. church. That will b the regular meeting place of the society till further notice. J. P. Young today received from the cast a very useful piece of moving furni ture. It is a piano mover and can be ns-nl with fc-ty to move either upright tr square piano. Maple seeds, which are now ripe enough to plant are being haryested by parties who have use for them on their claims. They bring a fair price in the tree claim regions. The case of Gering vs. C. B. & Q was decided in Judge Pottengcr's court this morning in favor of defendant. The cam was givn in Saturday's IIehai.p, and was a suit for $15 damages to a trunk. - Hiram W. Sheldon, a union soldier who resides in this city, formally of the Sixth battery, Wisconsin artillery, who applied for a pension through his attor ney, J. S. Matthews, has been successful and was granted an $800 back pension and $12 per month continuous. Lincoln Journal: The telegraph columns of the Omaha Woi'Id are on.c times fearfully and wonderfully con structed. The hopeless jumbling of two dispatches the other day resulted in an article far more humorous than anything that has appeared on its editorial pag for many a day. By this interesting mixture a construction train was made t enter Mrs Carter's room, killing several calyes and injuring a number of people. The World is enterprising at all times. Why not have a bicycle club in Plattsmouth? Quite a number of bicy cles are now possessed by the young mott of this city. The machines are all of bit. style and movement and make beautiful and graceful ''riding horses" for amuse ment and recreation. The avenues an1 other streets furnish plenty of room for local riding while several country rouds leading into town are smooth and resptc tably level. As yet there has been n steps taken to organize a bicycle club but such an organization would suitly prove a success. A boy by the name of Sitzman broke into th store of E. G. Dovey & Son yes terday by cutting through the screen t the basement door. His entrance was observed and reported to City Clerk Fox. who "laid for him." After a while ' tlie boy appeared with three oranges, ami that, was all the plunder he had taken. In the hands of the clerk the boy plead . and offered excuses, and finally con fessed? No. He offered Clerk Fox fif teen cents next week if he would let bim go. But the worthy clerk was not to be Lribed and the lad was turned over to the care of his father with a report of his misdemeanor. It was a pitiable act, for the boy doubtless did not realize what he was guilty of, and it is a thing to be hoped for that he will learn better and do better as he grows older, when pun ishment will be severe. Today has been a continuance of the mast disagreeable state the elements have been in this spring. The promises of rain which the clouds have given for sev eral days has not yet been fulfilled, and the strong south wind carries dust aud aind into every open door or window of the house and there it stays, and gives all the household goods a disagreeable touch and look. To be on the street, it's all right till you encounter a wagon load of dirt being premiscuously distributed ou all personal property, and it is espec ially delighted to light in the eyes, get into the mouth and grind around the taeii; to make them feel like they didn't fit. JJofc then that's not all, the sun dhines hotly nd by the aid of the dust works the pedeawiaas up to that state of ieeling which is generally observed in a .crowd after a three hoars' wait for a fourth of July procession. i THIRSTY LANDS. The Crassee, Cralns, and Crops on a Stand Still. Fanners are beginning to wonder what will turn up or how they will be able to manage things, and it is already a ques tion of feed with them, for their stock, on account cf the dry weather. The dry fall and winter let the spring open with a dry soil, but enough rain fell to Btart all vegetation early and healthfully, but the lack of frequent rains has kept back the luxuriant growth which should now be enjoyed by all grasses and small grain. The grass, or pasture, which has not yet been grazed upon this spring is far enough advanced to furnish pasture for a short time but its growth is too slow with this dry weather to support any amount of stock, and that grass which has been pastured since the first of April is eiUen down to tho ground and the land cannot continue to furnish grass without rain. All farmers, of course. have their li ye stock which now ought to be out at pasture, but they say tho pasture will not support their stock. Some of them have enough hay to feed into the summer if need be but others have not. Some good rains would bring them out in shape but if their pas ture land faiu much longer their stock will be in the way. But the small grain which came up so nicely early in the season is also at a aUnditill, and these hot dry winds hurt the crop a "bushel a day." Yet none of the crops are really damaged thus far the need of rain is felt on all sides, anal the farmers (and all other people; live in hope from day to day. Wells and springs still flow freely though, and if dry weather does not seriously interfere, the season will be a very fruitful one. A Snide Firm. Several weeks ago the Herald receifed a reading notice from a so called Delos Staples, of Portland. Michigan, with a uromise that if it were inserted and bill sent the sum would prcaiptly be remitted. Not being able to fnd or trace any re sponsibility to the name of Delos Staples the proposition was consigned to the waste basket. The notice which it was desired we should insert was a "Descrip tion of the Blueberry," which would Sourish in this climate, bear heavily, was very useful, etc., with Delos Staples as sole agent. Every since then the state exchanges which come to our tables by the dozen have largely contained a "De scription of the Blueberry," and not the Nemaha County Grungtr prpvesthe first one to have the last chapter of the atory which is like this: Some weeks since we received an ad yei tUment headed "Description of the Blueberry," with the lequest that the same be run for a specified time in our columns, and that the bill for the same be forwarded to Delos Staples, Portland, Michigan. We are not in the habit of placing advertisements in our columns without first receiving pay therefor or ascertaining that, the advertiser is reliable but in this case we first geye the "ad" place and then sent the bill. Receiving no aniwr, we drew on Mr. Staples thro' the- bank. Our draft was returned, the banker writing that he had sever been able to collect anything from the party oa whom the draft was drawn. We be came satisfied that we were sold, but as we had no thoughts of the party being a dead beat for anything but for the sake of securing advertiseing free we made no mf-ntion. On Saturday Mr. John Lewis of Aspinwall precinct called and in formed us that he had sent an order to this man Staples, but no reply, and that he had since written two letters, but no answer. The renders of the Granger can take the hint and conclude,ns we do,that Delos Staples of Portland, Michigan, is a fraud. The Herald publishes this account to warn its Cass county readers against the firm if they have been tempted through any advertisement they have read, and as advice through other people's exper ience to buy and order nursery stock through home dealers. Th Kicker Has a Rival. Extracts from the first number of the Kingfisher, (Oklahoma,) foomer, of April 27. 1889: '"Hafe Thimblerigger paid us a pleas ant visit yesterday and told us he had just won a fine quarter section at a shoot ing match witii a tender foot. He paid the funeral expenses himself. Rafe is a gentleman.'' "We learn that seven new towns start ed west of this place oyerlap each other very seriously. One man from Illinois lives in three of them all at once and is running for mayor of all of them." "Coroner Goosefelter is so far behind in his work that he requests us to inform his patrons that he is doing the best he can. His friends will oblige him by not making efforts to increase his business at this time." "Jim Triggers called on us yesterday and traded us a nickel-plated derringer for a year's subscription to the Boomer. He got the derringer from the man who died suddenly after calling Jim a hcrac tliicf. Come again, Jim." "There will be a faro game and a Sun day school running in this town tomor row. All are inyited." "The new cemetery south of town is meeting with general favor." "If any reader of the Boomer sees any thing that he does'nt like in this paper we will gladly take it back in our next jissue. Chicago News. 1 (rule .

Fox, City Clerk. -The question is puzzling some minds whether or no the old Presbyterian church building will be torn down. The fact is the building stands just on theline where the plans for the hotel building places the dinning room, and for that purpose the church will be used, the hotel being built up around it.

"Ic all depends upon the point of view," is a phrase that has passed into a proverb. It3 truth is illustrated anew every day, but perhaps not often more strikingly than it was in the case of a wealthy railroad man, who, in company with a journalist, not long ago visited Pike's Peak, in Colorado, aud was shown a magnificent prospect of the mountain across a rocky gorge. "Fine, fine, isn't it?" exclaimed the journalist. "Fine? I don't tlunk so," said the ailroad man. "How are you going to iuii a railroad here?" Here is another illustration of the "point of view:" "Wo call the tiger," said a vegetarian philosopher, "a ferocious beast; but what would we men be called if, for in stance, mutton chops could speak?" Youth's Companion. " One oa "Siegfried's'? Dragon. fommy w-as taken tho other evening by tiis father, an ardent Wagnerite, to see "Siegfried."

Every woman has a chance of "catch ing a husbvnd," but it is conceded that young ladies between twenty and twenty-five years of age are more likely to draw the matronial prizes. However it is not an unusual tting to hear of the marriage of a lady who has paed the three tree quarter century mark. Yet, how can a woman, weak, dispirited, tn ervated and tormented by diseases com mon to her sex, hope to become a happy Wife and mother ? Of course she cannot yet by the magic aid of Dr. Pierce's Fa vorite Prescription, all these obstacles ar wept away. As a powerful, invigorat ing tonic.
