Walter White has forfeited his reputa
tion as being a careful man. It seems he
brought the county safe, weighing ten
tons, up to the Bauk,and as it was grow
ing dusk he left it stand unguarded on
the street all night. This was very care
less, for had the Nehawka people found
it in that condition the safe without a
doubt would be resting today wtth our
cannon, at the shrine of Ike Pollard or
The laws of physics were reversed on
the part of the county safe. Careful
measurements last night showed it would
go through the window with 4 inches to
spare. The cold weather, however, in
stead of contracting seems to have ex
panded the safe until it lacked more than
four inches of going in and had to be
pulled back up the incline and turned on
its side. It is safely lioused now in the
Cass County Bank basement and no one
was hurt in its removal.
Philip Meisinger at the ripe age of 81
years, accompanied by his sons, John,
George and Peter, with their families,
arrived this moruiug from Pekin,
Illinois, and will hereafter be
citizen J of Cass county. Mr. Adam
Moore and family accompanied them,
making in all over forty people in the
crowd, added to Cass county citizenship
today. It required seven freight cars to
haul their stock and , furniture. John
Meisinger moves onto, his -farm south
east p Cedar Creek which he purchased
of Geo. Weidman last fall. Peter will
occupy 3 farm west ot this city, owned
by John Becker. Geerge will move onto
the old Donnely place, while Mr. Moore
will occupy the Leonard Born farm near
the poor bouse. These people are rela
ted to the Cass county Meisingers, the
Horns, Geo. Weidman and others here;
they are well to do people of means and
are indeed a most valuable acquisition.
The Hkjlaxd welcomes them to their
new home and hopes they may neyer have
occasion to regret the change.
