Several additions to the shop force have been made in the past month. Many improvements are being made on residence property in various parts of the city. Some men in this town would rather fret the short end of an argument than keepquiet. Many a man who imagines he could run the earth can't even manage a mall garden successfully. Large quantities of homegrown peaches are coming in daily. And of the finest qualities, too. Give your home merchant an appor tunlly to sell you goods before going to Omaha to get them cheaper. How about those broken sidewalks? Fixed, are they? Terhapsthey will be after someone gets a leg broken. "KowIiir down thp Ktreain "f lift-," With a churminK little wife; W'oulil 1 lovely.

I. llennett, and took possession of the same la.st Monday morning. (.'apt. llennett is one of the pioneer merchants of I'lattsmonth. Last win ter lie suffered a severe attack of the grippe, since which time lie has not been' in the enjoyment of his usual health, and expects to go to California in t lie hope of recuperation. John T. Tutt is no stranger to the people of t'asscounty. lie is a pioneer of the county, and for about lifteen years was a partner of Capt. lieunett in the grocery business. His son, K S., is one of l'lattsmouth's most pop ular young men. a good business man, and the Journal bespeaks for t lie new firm a splendid business. ANOTHER PIONEER IS GONE AN IMPORTANT INVENTION An enterprising exchange suggests a Keely cure for gossips. An institu tutlon of this kind would do well in riattsmouth. Nebraska City girls are said to wear pieces of sandpaper on their knees to rruike a. sound like the swish of satin vnfiersjklrU. If the reputation of being a "good fellow" means the contracting of bad habits, ask yourself If the reputation is worth the sacri lice. Farmers who are caught with fat cattle, empty corn cribs and no mar kets on account Of the strike, are not very happy Just no. "Get rich quick," Is the motto of some people. "Fraudulantly" if not possible otherwise," the motto of oth ers, but anyway, "Get rich quick!" The bosoms of the new-fashioned trousers look like a feather bed after the housewife has made a requisition upon it for filling for several sofa pillows. Gradually the B. & M. shops are be ing tilled with workmen, and by the time for snow to fly it is thought that every place made vacant by the recent turnout will be tilled. Au old bachelor friend says it's awful easy to convince a girl she's too pretty not to be kissed. How about convinc ing some of the old maids in town that they are too old to be kissed? The Flattsmouth Republican Ring have their county ticket already nom inated. There Is no use of holding a convention. Their will seems to be the law with the republicans of Cass county. "American Beauties" Is the name of ball team at Nebraska City, but the members are not girls, as might be in ferred. On the contrary the home liest set of boys that could be raked up In that town. A great many threshing machine owners will not take their machine out this season at all. In some localities they say they cannot make enough, ow inn to the poor yield of wheat, to re pay them for the wear and tear on the machinery. Farmers with whom we talked last Saturday are not agreed as to the corn cron outlook some contending that the yield In Cass county will be far be low that of 1903, while others argue just as strongly that prospects are bet ter than at the same time last year. An exchange says that "the enact ment of a law or an ordinance Is one thine and the enforcement another." No enactment at all is preferable to Twin -mfrirfpmpnt. The latter breeds UVU Vtlivt r.ontemDt and increases lawlessness, Laws and ordinances that become dead should be repealed.

We did the other, and the workmen became very much annoyed too. Another farmer was Is town Monday tsv rannlva I hll ndrpd nound sack of su- tar ha hurt fir dp red from Omaha. He was surprised to learn from one of our erocerymen mat ne cou.u uuj um urade of surar of him for 2A cents less on the sack besides saving 25 cents fniffht nharirrs. Moral: Try your home merchant before you go to Oma William Wettenkamp Died Monday Morn ing at His Home Near Mynard. Another Cass county pioneer has passed over to the Great Beyond. At about six o'clock Monday morning, August 1, 104, William Wettenkamp, one of the prominent German farmers of this county, died at his home near Mynard, at the age of about seventy live years. Several months since the deceased suffered a stroke of paralysis, from the effects of which he was thought to be slowly recovering, as he was able to get around, and In fact had been able to visit riattsmouth on several occa sions. However, on Sunday his condi tlon became alarming, and finally re sulted in his death as above stated. Mr. Wettenkamp had been a rcsi dent of Cass county for nearly half a century, and by his indomitable ener gy and perseverance had become quite wealthy, possessing several valuable farms and other property, including two business blocks in this city. The funeral occurred yesterday (Wednes day) afternoon at two o'clock from the late home of the deceased and inter ment made in the Eight Mile Grove cemetery. The deceased was born in Germany, coming to America at an early age. Four grown children survive him. One That Will Soon be In Operation on All the Railroads. Several of the daily papers of this state and Missouri contain the follow ing account of an invention of Kay Wiles, a former l'lal Isiuoutli boy: 'Hay Wiles, now supply agent for the Itiirlington at Hannibal, Mo., is the originator of a new Invention which may eventually be adopted by the railroads of I lie west. His invention is a patent slot ma chine planned for providing oil to nglneers at the round houses as it is needed. Its success Is said to lie as sured. His plan is to providecngineers with numbered shins, and as they need the oil they drop them in the machine. For each slug a pint of oil will be measured out. 'The railroads all keep a record of the amount of oil used by each engi neer, and at the end of every month Issue a table showing the mileage made by eacli engineer and the amount of oil he has used. With the new measuring device an engineer must present a ticket. With the machine the engineer's number on them will show how much oil he has taken from the machine. It is said the machine will not only be introduced on rail roads, but in other lines of business as well. The idea of the company man ufacturing them is to have them placed on public roads used by auto mobiles, so that when the owners need gasoline or other oils for their ma chines they can procure the amount desired by dropping the required amount of money in the slot. "The idea of such a machine first originated in the mind of Mr. Wiles. He did not think much about the plan . Question. at u.sb uui BiJKScaicu u it. vi.

This is another argu ment In favor of matrimony. GET RICH QUICK SCHEME Another Twist in the Kupke Case In the County Court. Before Judge Travis last Saturday the application of the German F.van gelical Synod to vacate the order of the county court disallowing the Kup ke will was hus ained and the or der and decree obtained by the smooth Mr. Folk, denying the probating of the will, was annulled. Folk, the readers of the Journal w ill remember, by his remarkable shifti ness, became possessor of t he estate of Ernest Kupke "forasong'Vsome,- 000 of the hard life-earnings of the old German farmer passed like the glim mer of the marble in the shell game to the professional and the Kupke chil dren, with the beneficiaries of the old man's will, were left wondering "how It was did!" When the will came up for probate Mr. Folk had, by means wholly unjustifiable, obtained a deed from Kupkc's children, and then by rushing matters In the county court, obtained a decree disallowing the will Ttje True Facts. A near neighbor of one of the gen tlemen who recently had a team stolen from his barn was in the Journal office last Monday evening, when the horse thief question was sprung, and as to the mystery of how they eluded the officials in this as well as in surround ing counties. He said that it appeared to him that as long as the county was paying the expenses of the officers in pursuit of the thieves that they could keep constantly at work on such cases. Now, this gentleman appeared very much astonished when we told him that Sheriff McBride had to defray his own expenses for every day that he spent away from home in his effort to capture thieves. There is no law by which he can get one cent for his work, and there is not a farmer In this county but who should understand this fact, as many are under the same impression as the above farmer. Sheriff McBride has been diligent in his search for the teams that have been stolen, and also In his efforts to apprehend the thieves. He has been a great many dollars out of pocket which will never be returned to him unless the thieves are captured and convicted. The law Is very lame In this respect, and we refer to the mat ter simply from the fact that many are disposed to believe that the county pays Sheriff McBssde's expenses while he Is out In pursuit of horse thieves and other depredators. farm and there found a team of horses as to whether the will should be al- titiU'li unltnrl tlir.lr ntirrutun hnttnr They unharnessed the mules, hitched lowed or not.

Last week's Journal contained an account of another burglary, in which a gold watch, the property of Mrs. W. Gamble, was stolen from the resi dence of F. J. Iean at Union. The theft was reported to Sheriff McBride and he immediately set out to capture the thief and recover the property Soon the watch was located in a pawn shop at Omaha, and the sheriff was In formed that a negro named James Bradley was under arrest, under the supposition that he had given the watch to a negress named Minnie Dines, who had pawned it.
