( oiichidiiin- a very Hatisfactory
business interview with the Union
people, your correspondent drew ii
lines at the Factory ville M ills, one
and a half miles west of Union.
Factory ville is one of the old e
hraska landmarks and flourished as
an important inland village till the
construction of the I,ineolii branch
of the Missouri I'acilic k R. to .Ne
braska City a little more than three
years iifjo, when Union absorbed all
the business of the place except the
milling interests. Here is located
one oi the best if indeed not Till-;
MiriT mill properties Cass county
affords, and is owned and operated
by the genial miller, T. M. Warne,
whose -iiaine on a Hour sack
is the best irurirantee of the
superior quality of its contents that
the most fastidious housewife
could desire, and JJie only difficulty
Mr. Warne has is to keep up with
his multiplicity of orders. Tun
IlKk'AI.O gladdens the hearts of the
Warne household every week, where
it will continue to carry the news in
the same satisfactory manner it has
during the past.
Continuing- our journey up the
classic waters of the "Minneboohoo"
we drew up at nightfall at Xe
hawka, a beautiful little village lo
cated on the .Lincoln branch of the
M. 1, in the
to a much larger city, but a goon
run of custom justifies the excel
lence of the shop.
Miss Mate Newell is the milliner,
and judging from the extensive
stock she carries, is keeping up with
the procession of the other busi
ness houses of the town. She is
kept so busy at this season of the
year that she finds it necessary to
employ an assistant to wait on her
man- lady customers.
Miss Katie Warden is the dress
maker who finds constant employ -ment
in her line of work. Messrs.
Smoots iV Soimcr are proprietors of
the confectionery store which is
just being opened up.
Peter pp wields the cleaver
and a better steak or loin than he
cuts is not to be found in aiiysham
r.. Italdwin is the genial agent
and liiauii.ulates the tcleirraph
Dr. I'ollard responds to the call
of the afflicted and is a thorough
practitioner, besides having been a
knight of the quill. The doctor is a
pleasant gentleman and a valuable,
citizen to Nehawka.
James Jamison is the knight of
the saw and hammer who is justly
proud that his lot is cast among so
prosperous a people as those of the
Tillage of Nehawka and vicinily.
The town is supplied with two
livery stables and they too seem
to be doing a satisfactory business.
The United Hrethren is the only
Christain organization here at pres
ent, and they have an elegant little
church building in which to wor
ship and hold Sunday echool. The
Methodist people contemplate tin;
erection ot a enureii tins season.
The most important industry-of
the town is the opening of exten
sive stone quarries by Omaha par
ties. They are building side tracks
into the quarries and are putting in
crushers, all of which give employ
ment to from fifty to sixty men. This
accounts in part for the extensive
busine.-is of the town. We predict a
bright future for Nehawka.

precinct. Nature has withheld
not her lavish hand in beau
tif3ing the spot upon which
stands this, one of the
oest commercial points 111
Cass county, and a thrifty, ener
getic set 01 ousiness men are
at the helm here, which accounts
for the solidity and volume of bus
ness carried on and for thesubstan
tial and permanent character of the
buildings of the town. This city
will go clown 111 History as the point
attacked by Colonels Kroehler, Lav
mgston, Shiiin and Dwyer 111 ante
court house days, with their valiant
band, tor the recovery of the
famous cannon which their strong
hold had some years ago confis
cated from the l'apillionites 011 the
Fapio. It is said that the bravery
of theae four colonels was undaunt
ed and unexcelled 011 any field of
battle till they were surprised and
captured and their captor
compelled them to realize
the contrast in color of the blackest
of tar and the whitest of feathers,
when the braves on bended knee
begged the mercy of the Nehawka-
ites, and with man)- a good promise
to ever refrain from further maraud
ings were permitted to meander
their way home to the ancient cit-
ot I'lattsmoutti, clad in the same
raiment hitherto worn by them in-
steaa 01 tne more attractive one
with which they were about to be
invested by their captors. These
have all been lived up to to the
greatest of nicety and now the col
onels with one accord vote the can
non the greatest evil of modern
times and declare arbitration their
policy instead of a resort to arms.
The following- is a resume of the
business of th is thriving little town:
F. 1". Sheldon is the postmaster and
keeps a large general store. Mr.
Sheldon carries a heavy stock, far
in excess of most stores kept in a
town of the sine of Nehawka. but by
his superior business methods his
trade justifies his heavy investment
The same that is said of Mr. Shel
don is equally applicable to the
oilier merchant, .Mr. Haier, who
keeps anything from a cambric
needle up to a set of harness. Mr.
Haier is doing an excellent business
and is a valuable business man for
the town. The Nehawka ISank is a
valuable adjunct to the business of
the town and is presided over in
an efficient manner by the genial
cashier. I). C. West. Mr. West is a
favorite in the town, and justly so.
for he is a sociable, wide-awake
young business man. The lumber
yard is kept by A. Sturm and is do
ing a good business.
Messrs. Mcfh ide and Palmer keep
a lirst class hardware store, and like
most of the other business houses of
the village carry stock far in excess
of stores usually found in towns of
this size. C. I). Mothersead isoneof
the brightest young druggists in
Cass county, and besides presiding
over a fresh, clean looking
drug store and doing an excellent
trade in his line he finds a spare
moment to entertain the stranger.
Henry Cropp Is the implement
dealer, and the bus- farmer can al
ways find him at his post of duty,
anxious to sell him anything from
an onion hoe to a harvester. Mr.
Cropp has the confidence of the
people, which he has won by fair
J. h. Isaiuimg is the veteran grain j
dealer and prides himself that he is I
located in the heart of the best agri- j
cultural county in the state. Mr. H
is doing a good business, as is also j
me iirni 01 .McMriMe .v rainier, man
agers of the other elevators. The
town supports two good hotels; one.
the Nehawka House, is kept by W.
J. Smoots. and the ot her. t he i ruber
House, by Jacob timber. These
are both splendid hostleries
much better than are commonly
found in towns the si.e of Nehawka.
. Dl-MOCK'ATIC organ defines reci
procity as a scheme by which "the
fears and necessities of South Amer
ican countries are to oe played up
on for our commercial advantage.'
This is very sad, of course; but
there is somethingatill more melan
choly, lor aemocraeic newspapers
in the fact that it is going to insure
the election of another republican
president next year. Kx.
