Judge Chapman and John D. Tutt.
Judge Chapman remarked that of
the early citizens of Plattsmouth

four left, himself and John Tutt,

There should be a meeting to look
after a Fourth of July celebration
in this city this year, and now
would be an excellent time to begin.
We have given way every year to
the smaller towns about us and we
believe they would join us this
year and have a hurrah worth at
tending. One thing should be done
if nothing more, and that is the se

To His Honor, the Mayor and t7te
Gentlemen of the City Council.
We, the board of public works to
whom you have referred the recom
mendation of the board of health in
regard to making a road across the
I .'it M. track at the mouth of Happy
Hollow for the purpose of getting
to the river as a dumping place,
would recommend that His
Honor, the mayor, would appoint a
committee to wait on the H. & M. of
ficials in regard to what we call the
river track and find out if we could
not get that track south of Granite
street to Kocky Point. This would
not only give us a road to the river
for a lumping place, but also give
us the best kind of a road to the
ferrv', which would bring all the
immigration to the city and also
bring us much more trade from the
Iowa side, and as we understand
Mr. Peterson, the ferryman, has said
that if the city would procure the
river track for a road to the ferry he
would reduce the price for round
trip to 50c for two horse team and
wagon. Kespectiuuy suumivteu,

their proper division.
And if there are any business men
who have been missed, who would

Avoea m a thrifty little city on
the south branch of the Weeping
Water creek, ;iiid is tin' only town
in Avoca precinct. Its existence as
a town date about eight 3 ears back
when the M. p. radio. id was built
thiough here, connecting Weeping
Water and Auburn, and is the trade
center ol a line agricultural area in
I ! 1 1 ( "a a nd ( )oe coil u t ies, being
located not lar from thecouuty line.
I he town donned the garb of incor
poration three years ago, and lsae
what the boys call a "wet", village
board, anil in conseipience two
"Webster k'osewatcr prosperities"
are in full blast. lb-re are found
soi ne of t he best represen 1 a t i ve h 1 1 s-ine.-s
men of Ca-s county
among whom are lion. Orlando
Teill, who is vice presi
dent of the Avoca bank with
( ieo. K'o v la i H 1, cash ier. w ho a re a i so
interested in the South Platte Lum
ber Co. of this place. Moth these
institutions are in a prosperous
condit ion, as indeed is every busi
ness enterprise of the city with
which Mr. Tclft has ever become
identified. Amos Telft is tin-postmaster,
and though above three
score and ten he is piite active and
performs thedutics for "I'ude Sam"
in the most efficient and satisfacto
ry manner. Mr. Telft is justly en
titled to the raukof pioneer, having
settled in Cass county in the year
The town is supplied with two
general stores by B. C. Marquardt
& Co. and Messrs. Lindemau V
Busching-. Both these firms carry
exceptionally heavy stocks of gen
eral merchandise and enjoy a lu
crative trade which they have won
by fair square business methods
unexcelled by any other business
houses in the county.
Messrs. Graham & Wilkinson are
the hardware and furniture dealers
md carry such complete stocks in
both lines of their business that no
customer is ever compelled to look
elsewhere for the article he may de
sire. They are pleasant gentlemen
md have succeeded in fully estab
lishing themselves in the confi
dence of their large and increasing
circle of patrons.
We found the enterprising drug
firm of C. A. Kaufman & Co. right
in the midst of a rush of business
owing to the fact that they had but
recently received a heavy invoice of
wall paper, window shades and nu
merous other articles commonly
kept in a first class drug store.
This firm is doing an extensive
traffic and is justly entitled to the
popularity they enjoy throughout
The Hulburd elevator, managed
by J. W. Brooks, and the Bartel &
Co. elevator handle the grain, and
we doubt if any station in Cass
county has shipped out more grain
during the year last past than has
been shipped from these two ele
The firm of Wilkinson & Graham,
besides conducting the large furni
ture and hardware store mentioned
above, are extensive stock dealers,
and buy and ship perhaps as much
if not more stock during the year
than any other firm doing a like
business in the county. Thej' are
also proprietors of a harness shop,
which is quite handsomely patro
nized by the nianj' prosperous
farmers in the surrounding country.
The town can boast of two black
smith shops, one by Haight & Har
rington and the other by D. Koster
and at this season of the year all
these smithies are kept busy morn
ing, noon and night.
Jacob Opp is the man to call on
if you want an easy shave or an ar
tistic job of hair cutting. Besides
filling this important place in the
village business directory Mr. Opp
is also the jeweler and watch maker.
He is just laying the foundation for
a new building in which to prose
cute his business which, to saj- the

business career for him since locating-

tentions than the city of bis choice.
Messrs. Pecham & Sriver are the
contractors and builders of the
town, and like their fellow towns
men are prospering in the pursuit
of the occupation of their adoption.
The physical maladies of the peo
ple are healed by Dr. Brendel, who
is well recommended as a prac
titioner. The Congregationalists have a
neat little church here and main
tain regular worship, so that the
moral interests of the people are
not wholly neglected.
THe town can boast of a large two
story school building, which is at
once the pride of the place, and
which would indicate that Avoca is
with the proceAion in educational
matters. At the present time a
school of two departments is in ses
sion and is well attended.
Messrs. Hageman & Co. erected
as fine a little Vnilling property here
last year as the county affords. It
is a full roll steam mill of thirty
barrels capacity and began busi
ness the first of the year 1S01. So
far has the business exceeded the
expectations of the builders, they
now find it necessary to make an
additition at once, doubling the ca
pacity of the present building and
machinery. It may not be out of
place to say that this industry was
secured to Avoca by the public
