Carnival Committees are Doing
Good Work in Making
There was great enthusiasm at the
special meeting of the Carnivul com
mittee and those interested in the suc
cess of the festival last evening. Di
rector Frank Janda and Joseph Kanka
of the Modern Woodman Band met
with the committee and entered into an
agreement to furnish music during the
five days. No trouble at all was ex
perienced in coming to terms as both
the carnival committee and the band
boys were disposed to do what was
right to further the best interests of
Luke Wiles, the enterprising stock
man, was present at the invitation of
the committee and accepted the chair
manship of the committee on the Live
Stock and Agricultural exhibit, which
will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 1,
Quartus Farmele,the former appointee's
business being such that he will be out
of town for the greater, part of the
next few weeks. As thi3 will be one
of the most difficult parts of the big
show to carry to a successful tormina-!
tion the committee considered itself
fortunate in securing the service of Mr.
Wiles. He will be assisted by several
live citizens each of whom will take
hold of a certain department of the ex
hibit. Arrangements for a special service
over the M. P. on Tioneer Day will bo
made t,o handle the visitors from Fort
Crook sure to follow the company of
soldiers who will put on a fancy drill
and the base ball club which will play a
match game with the locals. The ef
fort to get the Government Band to
accompany the soldiers and ball players
will no doubt be successful. Also ar
rangements will be made for a special
train from Elmwood on Friday, Mer
chants Day, which will bring in a large
number of visitors accompanied by the
Elmvood base ball nine which will play
the locals that day. Klmwood's live
citizens will also probably bring along
their brass band which would be a splen
did attraction. The committee has al
so started negotiations for a special
train from Havelock on Monday, Labor
Day, when the Havelock shop men
hope to be present and take part in
the big industrial parade. The Platts
mouth and Havelock ball clubs play a
match game on this day which alone
will be worth a trip of many miles.
Numerous inquiries for concessions
insures almost every amusement that
could be thought of for the principal
streets and the committee will also
soon come to a decision on which of the
several splendid and wonderful free at
tractions shall be secured for the oc
casion, which will be one of the biggest
and best ever undertaken by the city,
and every citizen should at once appoint
himself a committee of one to go to
boosting, as the natural result of the
carnival can be the beneficial to each
and everyone whether in business or
simply an owner of property.

Big Gun Inscribed.
Through the efforts of Col. H. C.
McMaken the cannon on the court house
grounds which was presented to Cass
county by McConihie Post has been
suitably inscribed, reciting its history
and the manner of its possession by
the county. The inscription is on a
plate of copper about six by thirteen
inches, and is as follows:
"This cannon was used during the
war of the Rebellion at Ft. Miffen,
Pennsylvania, and was given to John
McConihie Post No. 45, Grand Army of
the Republic, by an Act of Congress of
the United States of America, for
their military service in the war of
1861 to 1806.
April 9th,1901, this cannon was given
by John McConihie Post to Cass county
! Nebraska, to keep for all time.
We leave this cannon to future gen
! erations as a remembrance of the
1 soldiers who fought for the preserva
tion of the Union in the civil
1 1851 to 1866.
I This gun was obtained and mounted
i by the special efforts of Henry C.
McMaken and James W. Thomas."

Two Plattsmouth boys have recently
received good promotions which will be
good news to their many friends in the
city and vicinity. Geo. Bruhl, who has
been working for the Burlington for
some time as brakeman successfully
passed me examination and was ap
pointed to be freight conductor. He is
now working as extra conductor and
will doubtless receive a regular run in
the near future. 1 he other promotion

The game between the Plattsmouth
and "Sunflower Bloomer" base ball
clubs Tuesday afternoon was a Blow
and uninteresting affair, the visiting
team being unable to score, though in
the first half of the eighth inning a
walk, an error and a single filled the
bases, and with only one out the visit
ors were full of hope. But a double
play retired the "girls" and another
opportunity to score failed to present
itself, the result being 6 to 0. A larger
crowd would doubtless have witnessed
the game but for the fact that the re
port was circulated prior to the game
that most of the girls were men made
up to represent lady players.
Government Summary Indicates
Increased Yields in
A summary of the government's lat
est crop report by the department of
Agriculture is of great interest to
Nebraska farmers and a few of the
chief features are mentioned for the
benefit of those in this vicinity.
This season's winter wheat yield will
total 432,920,000 bushels as against
437,908,000 bushels last season tho av
erage quality being considered 2-tcnths
per cent better than lust year.. The
comparative figures on corn given this
season's averge as 89.3 as against a
ten year average of 82.6 for August
first. It is estimated this season's yield
of winter wheat in three states with
per cent of quality will bo as follows.
State Bushels Pet.
Kansas 85,478,000 88
Nebraska 42,040,000 95
Missouri 28,562,000 92
The average condition of corn now as
compared on a 100 per cent basis during
the past 10 years is as follows:
Iowa now 85 per c. ten years ago 84
Missouri 88 80
Nebraska .. 93 83
Kansas 90 '. 78
So. Dakota.. 92 . 86
These figures show an average im
provement in prospect for this season's
corn crop of nearly 7 1-2 per cent in
tho five states mentioned. Persons
who traveled in Illinois and other corn
states clain that the prospects for a
bumper crop are the best they have
ever known, and there is a growing be
lief that the present high prices for
grain of all kinds will slump off con
siderably in the near future, though on
account of larger consumption there is
little danger of prices going so low
that farming would be considered un
profitable. Second Church ol Christ, Scientist.

Congratulations of Friends
on Fiftieth Wedding
A more beautiful and touching pic-
ture it would be difficult to imagine
than was presented to the throngs of
guests who gathered at the residence
of Mrs. C. C. I'armele Monday after
noon and evening to pay homage to her
father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Pollock, "who reigned supreme as
King and Queen wearing crowns of
silvery sheen," and graciously received
the congratulations and good wishes
bestowed upon them by their hosts of
friends and relatives. Golden indeed
was the day which celebrated in happy
commemoration that other golden day
of fifty years ago when Thomas Pol

of Lexington, Kentucky, to travel life's

as he stood beside his lovely little bride
whose smiling flower-like face beamed
sweetly upon all she greeted, left an
impression of connubial love and faith

Extra Potlco for Carnival. ' "
At the meeting of the city council
Monday night E. A. Wu1 appeared as
a representative of the Commercial
club and spoke in favor of the appoint
ment of special police during the carni
val. There was little opposition and
Mayor Sattler was authorized to ap
point such extra police force as in his
judgment would be found necessary.
Some of our citizens were apprehensive
of trouble, and with good cause as one
challenge for a fight to the finish has
already been printed and given a great
deal of prominence. As a matter of
fact the carnival promoters expect but
little trouble from boozers and high
tempered scrappers but it is well
enough to have more police officers to
keep a sharp lookout for Buch offenders
among the crowds so that if any of
them start trouble they can be quickly
and efficiently subdued and punished by
The subject of hitching posts also
came up Mr. Wurl explaining that per
sons whe drove in were often complain
ing because of no place to tie teams.
The council acted favorably on this and
it was decided to erect posts at various
places on the streets and vacant lots
near the business center.
