The editor of this paper has made
some investigations of the catalogue
houses a9 compared with the prices
charged by the local merchants, and
the up to date merchant of this city
can give you better bargains than any
of the catalogue houses.
That flattery has done more harm,
indeed, than all the grosser ills, one
must concede; for reason, that while
seemingly sincere it blinds the eye9 to
facts as they appear; leaving the vic
tim of its wiles forsooth, to find, too
late, what is the real truth.
ILattsmoctii has wonderful natural
scenery. Its beautiful natural eleva
tions adorned with beautiful homes and
fine trees attract the visitors. As na
ture begins to unfold the foliage and
spread its green vesture over the city
one is almost tempted to call Plaits
mouth the "Forest City of the We.-t."
WHY should you trad. in Plattsmouth?
We have as good a class of dry goods
Rtores as can be found in any city of
this size, and our merchants can and
will duplicate prices of the same quality
of goods, sold in any city in the state.
The same is true of the clothing stores,
the grocery stores, the hardware stores,
the millinery stores and jewelery
stores. Then why should you not trade
at home? Kvery dollar spent at home
enables your home merchant to oll'er
greater bargains and more of them.
This is economy in the long run.
AS THE SOUTH VIEWS ROOSE
VELT AND TAFT.
Hon. T. M. Stevens, a member of the
firm of Stevens V. Lyons, a leading
law firm of Mobile, Ala., an ! n demo
crat in speaking of the southern view
of Theodore Roosevelt said:
We think he is the greatest combina
tion of right and wrong, and of wisdom
and folly that ever appeared on this
planet. lie has made more mistakes
and done more good than any other
president wo have had. He ha-i the
mo t righteous intentions am! thu most
r?no!i!3t n.o'ivcs i f any man th.it ever
lived, and Is so confident of his own
righteousness that he never knows
when he is wrong.
The southern people like such men.
We do not approve of everything
Roosevelt has done or attempted to do,
nor do we approve of some of his
methods and utterances, but we do ap
prove of the man and admire him,
right or wrong. Roosevelt has given
us all something to think ubout. He
has awakened the moral consciousness
of this country, and everybody ought to
be the better because he has been
president. We need a shaking up every
now and then; we need to have our
souls stirred and our sins pointed out to
us or thrown back into our faces, and
Roosevelt has done that with more
force and effect than was ever done be
fore. No rational man, no matter what
his connections or his politicis, will
dare to deny that President Roosevelt,
with all his impetuosity and his mis
takes, has left the public service and
particularly commercial and financial
conditions better than he found them.
Of President William II. Taft, he
I think that President Taft is recogn
ized by the intelligent people of the
South as one of the biggest and best
men in the nation. That is distinctly
the opinion of the members of the bar
who, I may say, are almost unanimous
ly members of the democratic party.
They base their judgement principally
upon Taft's decisions from the bench,
and from what we have been told of
him by our associates at the bar of the
neighboring circuit over which Presi
dent Taft presided for several years.
We know him to be a big broad-minded,
brainy man, with a caol head, sound
learning and an exalted sense of justice.
And, therefore, wc anticipate that his
administration will be just and fair to
all classes. We have read his char
acter in his decisions and have confi
dence in his ability and judgment. I do
not think any man of affairs in the
South, whatever his political connec
tions may be, and practically all men
of affairs vote the democratic ticket,
feels any regret that Judge Taft is

esteem entertained for my public
services. Permit me, sir, to return
to you my grateful acknowledg

us in this token. Mrs. Jackson will
wear with pride a hat made by
American hands and made of Ameri
can materials. Its workmanship,

evi.ler.ee of the perfection which
' domestic manufactures may here-

of our manufactures, as the hand-

depends, in a great measure, the

I assure you that none can feel more
j sensibly than I do the necessity of

of your respect and esteem, and
the llattering language with which
you have noticed my public services
accept, sir, my most sincere thanks.
With great respect, your very
obedient and humble servant,

. VALUE OF AN INTERURBAN TO j
; CASS COUNTY FARMERS. j
j There is no better field for the build-!
ing of a:, interurban railway than the !
Cass county held. We have in former
:.. ..... ...
issueoi me .tws-nERAi.D outlined a
very suitable route. We know of no one I
enterprise that could be handled so
easily in Cass county as an interurban
railway. We know of no enterprise
that would add so great an increased
value to the property of so great a
number of people. The real estate
values of all farm lands along the route
of an interurban railway, as soon as it
is put into operation, is almost instant
ly increased in value from $15 to $10 an
acre. Take the case of an interurban
railway built from Plattsmouth to
Union and Nehawka, and from Murray
to Manley, Murdock, Elmwood, Eagle,
Alvo and Greenwood and connecting
with Weeping Water, Avoca, Wabash,
and Louisville, and increase the value
of all farm lands along such a route
from $15 to $40 per acre and it will al
most instantly increase the market val
ue of every acre of farm land in Cass
county from ten to twenty per cent.
At the same time it would increase the
market value of real estate in every
town in the county which could be
reached by such interurban railway
from twenty to thirty per cent and in
many instances would double its value.
The work of organizirg for the build
ing of the Plattsmouth and Cass county
interurban railway should not permit
the matter to sleep, but every one
should take hold of the matter and push
it energetically and actively.
Through the courtesy of a friend of
the News-Herald we are permitted to
give below copies from letters from
farmers and business men in the ter
ritory where interurban railways have
been built and are in operation.
Letter from Farmer living between
Kansas City and Leavenworth.
Ettenson, Kan., Feb. 17, I'M.
Your letter was received and con
tents carefully considered. Wo live near
the electric road between Leavenworth
and Kansas City. In regard to the val
ue of land before the road was built
and since is marked. We purchased
some land before the road was built at
$5i;pcr acre, and it is worth about $80
now. Land has increased at least 50
per cent since the road was built. Some
of the farms have sold for double what
they would have before the road was
built. I do not think that the increas
ed value is due altogether to the elec
tric road being here, but it is the great
The road does not cross our farm, but
it runs along one half mile by the, side
of it. I cannot tell you how we appre
ciate the convenience and advantages
of it. We have a station richt near us.
and it makes it very convenient. I will
say without any hesitation that farmers
along the line from Leavenworth to
Kansas City would not be without it
for any consideration.
We have three lines of steam rail
road running between Leavenworth and
Kansas Kity. They get a very small
portion of the coal trade, as the people
prefer to take the electric line when
they can go any hour of the day.
Any other information in regard to
this will be cheerfully given.

Letter from a farmer living between
Kansas City and Leavenworth.
Lansing, Kans., Feb. II, l'.IOit.
In regard to whether or not an
electric road built through the country
is a benefit to farmers, will say that it
surely is a great benefit. 1 live 22 miles
from Kansas City, on the K. C. and N.
W. Electric road. The price of land be
fore the road was built averaged from
!?;'.() to $.)() per acre. Now the same
land is selling from $M0 to .l."il per
acre. We have cars running every
hour, so if we have trading to do, we
take the car, do our trading ami ure
back almost before you know it.

Circleville, Ohio, Feb. 2i, I'M).
Yours of the l'Jth at hand requesting
information as to the advantages do
rived from our inierurlian trolley line.
Circleville is located on Scioto Valley
route, be'Rinninit tit Colunilms and ind

of the line, yet we feel here that our
town has benefited greatly by the road
At all seasons of the vear uerishable
freight, such as fruits, vegetables.etc.,
are now shipped to us and received in
good condition, while formerly practi
cally nothing was shipped in the winter
without fear of loss by freezing. The
farmers in our neighborhood do not
seem to be attracted by the larger cit
ies, but come to our town in greater
numbers. There is no shipping of farm
products along the line, with the excep
tion of eggs, butter, milk and poultry
to Columbus, but for these products the
road is a great friend, as there are
little stations all along the line almost
at the very poor of the farmer.
We merchants of Circleville believe
that the advantages we derive from the
line are far greater than any loss we
may possibly have by trade, drawn to
Columbus and Chillicothe, as what trade
we lose in that manner is more than
made up by the fact that our neighbor

Senator V. B. Banning is slated a3
speuker before the Brotherhood of the
Presbyterian church Tuesday evening. !
He should tell the Brotherhood why he i
voted against the county option bill? j
Why he voted for the vast number of
pie bills? Why he supported all meas- j
ures taking the selection of various ap-!
pointments to positions in the state in-1
stitution out of the hands of the State
Board and gave the appointive .power
to the governor? Why he supported
the half million dollar increase in the
appropriations, which will make an in
