At Havelock when we visited that
place last week we found every thing
-all right, with business going on at
the rate of a metropolis. Our first
pluce to stop was the office of Joseph
Tighc the rustling coal dealer, but
at the place we did not find our
friend as he was out with a team
supplying his customers with the
needful warming material. His son
though was in the office and when
he saw the News Herald, and the
fact that Cornie Schlater, his cousin
had won the ten dollar prize, he was
greatly pleased, and inquired about
his relatives health in the city and
especially of that of Connie, and
grandpa Conrad Schlater.
We next met Mrs. Geo Hawkins
and was told that Mr. Hawkins who
is the foreman of the blacksmith
shop for the Burlington, was still
at his work and the rush of business
for the company made it necessary
for them to work over time. Nels
Ilawkinson was at home on the
sick list, having been out for some
two weeks on account of the bad
health, but thought that he would
be able to return to work again in n
Joseph Carrigan, was at home
just having arrived from the Burling
ton blacksmith shops and said that
he with his family liked Havelock
very well but thought Plattsmouth
a better place to live. Mr. Currygan
likes his position with the Burlington
at Havelock very well and is going
good work there.
A. A. Ilyers the postmaster at
Havelock is doing well and has with
him in the office Mrs. Hyers and
Miss Mahoney a daughter of P. II.
Mahoney formerly of this place as
clerk. Mr. llyers does a good real
estate business as well, having his
office in a suit of rooms in the same
building as the pnstoflicc.

in life and has surely made good,

BE A BOOSTER.
"Do you know there's lots of people
Setting 'round in every town,
Growlin' like a broody chicken,
Knockin' every good thing down.
Don't yon own that kind of cattle,
Cause they ain't no use on earth,
You just be a booster Rooster,
Crow and boost for all you'r worth.
If your town needs boostin' boost'er;
Don't hold back and wait and sec
If some other fellow's willin',
Sail right in, this country's free,
No one's got a mortgage on it
It's your's as much as his,
If your town needs boostin' boost'er;
You get in the boostin' biz.
If things don't jest seem to suit yon
An' the world seems kinder wrong,
What's the matter with a boostin'
Just to help the thing along;
Cause if things should stop agoing,
We'd be a sorry plight,
You just keep that horn a blowin'
Boost'er up with all your might.
If you sec some other fellow tryin'
Tor to make some project go,
You can boost it up a trifle,
That's your chance to let him know
That you's not agoing to knock it
Just because it ain't your shout,
But you're go'n to boost a little
Cause he's got the best thing out."

City Attorney B. S. Ramsay,
today drew a complaint charging
the violation of the city ordinance by
the loreign merchants who expect
to open their wreck sale tomorrow.
The complaint is in two counts the
first being that the accused lias
violated the ordinances of the city
and committed the crime of circulat
ing advertising matter offering goods
for sale in the city, without obtaining
a license therefore. The second count
charges the offenders with distributing
advertising matter by losely scatter
ing the same on the public street and
on private premises and within doors
and screens within the city, contrary
to the ordinances in such case made
and provided and against the peace
and dignity of the great state of
The feeling still runs quite high
among the business interests of the
city, and there was nothing for the
city attorney to do but to make
arrangements to enforce the ordin
anees of the town.
If they arc wiong it is time to find
it out, if they arc right, then they
should be enforced, and the gentle
men can return to the place where
they are supposed to pay their taxes
and carry on their business without
any trouble or ill feeling.

AS TO FOUNDATION.
Work Will Probably Begin About
the First of Next April.
C. F. Cramer, of Washington D.C.
arrived last evening on No 2 from
Council Bluffs, and prepared to make
the preliminary soundings for the
new government building to be
erected this year.
Mr. Cramer is superintendent of
buildings and is a busy man, having
in charge at this time beside the
building here, one at Clarinda, one
at Council Bluffs and Omaha, Grand
Island and several other points.
It was necessary to come here and
make a personal inspection of the
soil and the depth to which the
foundation will have to go to be
permanent, before the bids could
1)0 let, or even the plans could be
Four men were engaged this morn
ing making an excavation at each
of the four corners of the lot, going
down some ten feet to ascertain
the nature of the soil, whether filled
or not, and any other peculiarities
which might be found.
The footing will be of reinforced
concrete, and brick on top of that.
The building will bo about fifty by
ninety feet, one story in height. It
will be some time before the dirt
will begin to fly, as the plans will
not be completed for a month after
the soundings arc made. Then it
will require another month to ad
vertise for bids, the bids will have to
be let which will require more time,
so that it will be the latter part of
April before the work will actually
Drive to Country.
