Selected As Delegate.
When Henry Gering starts after a
proposition, tne proposition usually
surrenders without a struggle. His
latest was to fline the banners of old

Woodmen, which meets at Dubuque.
There were plenty of candidates, but
Henry won out in a canter and he will
be heard from in the convention, too.

AMONG THE EXCHANGES.
The report reached this city today
that Mr. and Mrs. Mcllvain, whose
little daughter was one of the Ave
children drowned Tuesday noon across
the river, have lost their minds brood
ing over the loss of their lit'.le darling.
Kind friends are caring for them and
it is to be honed that they will re
cover from the blow, which was in
deed as sad a one as can be in
flicted on parents. Nebraska City
M. A. Lunn, who has been identified
with beet sugar raising in this state
for many years, and who has spent
much time both in talking and writ
ing one the subject, was in our city
last Saturday and made this office a
pleasant call. Mr. Lunn had just come
up from Auburn, where, during a
meeting of the citizens and the farm
ers, he gave them a talk on the rais
ing of beets, which has stirred them
up to action and many will attempt to
raise a part of an acre to test the qual
ity and quantity of production, and
after a thorough triil they find the
results as they anticipate, will work
for a factory. The securing of a plant
it seems does not depend altogether
on pop legislation, but on a thorough
test of the soil and quality of beets
raised and the combined etTorts of the
farmers. Wee ping Water Republican.
Chalmers Wood, son of T. C. Wood,
died at Las Vegus, New Mexico, on
Saturday, of consumption. Mr. Wood
went to New Mexico for the benefit of
his own health and that of his son.
His hopes have not been realized in
either case. Mr. Wood was a nephew
of the late M. U. Payne, was in charge
of his business across the river, and
would h ave been his executor but for
his failing health. Nebraska City

Dr. Seymour wishes to say to people
of Plattsmouth that traveling is not
his business and that it was only
through the very urgent request of
friends that he consented to leave
his business in Omaha to come here
for one day, and he would request any
person wishing to see him to leave a
card of introduction, otherwise he will
expect the usual fee for an examina
tion of eyes.

Mr. J. George Suhrer,Druggist,City .
Dear George: Please send me a
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. I would not feel easy if I
knew there was none of this valuable
Remedy in the house. I have given
it a fair test and consider it one of the
very best remedies for croup that I
have ever found. One dose has al
ways been sufficient, although I use it
freely. Any cold my children contract
yields very readily to this medicine.
I can conscientiously recommend it
for croup and colds in children.
Yours respectfully, Geo. E. Wolff.
