management has done much to injure
the business and business enterprises
and business industries of this city. Pay
no attention to the Journal's knocking.
It is easy to knock, it is silly to knock,
it is ignorant to knock, and the Journal
is knocking. It is wise to boost, it is
helpful to boost, it is sensible to boost,
it is benevolent to boost so let every
good and fair-minded citizen join hands
and boost for the citizens' ticket and
! thus boost for Plattsmouth.

rock upon which the foundations of in

ginnings of society and look at the first

property, is inevitably subversive of
civilization. There is much in current
' matters that has its true and repulsive
character revealed when it is brought
to this touchstone.
