A Farewell Reception.
Last night the friends of August
Johnson and family gave a delightful
farewell suprise party at the Johnson
home on Third street, and a most en
joyablceventng wasspent. Victor An
derson was the central tigure of at
traction, rendering many songs which
were highly appreciated.
Mr. Johnson has resided In Plans
mouth for the past twenty-live years,
and has been In the employ of the Tur
lington for twenty years. He has been
In poor health for some time and has
decided to remove the first of the week
with his family to their farm near
Savldge, in Antelope county, in the
hope that the outdoor life will be ben
eficial to him. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson
have a host of friends that regret to
see them leave.
As a token of the high esteem in
which they are held the Johnsons were
presented with a beautiful silver tea
set by their admiring friends.
Those participating in the surprise
were, the families of David Wallen

The Chronic Loafer.
Did you ever consider how much
trouble and turmoil In the world Is
stirred up by loafers? Do It and you
will be surprised. Investigate care
fully and you will find that nine out of
the ten fusses and quarrels that you
know of In your town or neighborhood
were started by loafers who have no
business of their own to attend to and
so got busy with other people's affairs.
The old Juvenile proverb that "Satan
finds some mischief still for Idle hands
to do" Is as true as gospel. There can
be no such thing as absolute idleness.
Activity of some kind Is essential to
existence. Men and women have to
do something, and when they have no
work of their own to occupy their
minds they get busy with the affairs of
others and make trouble always.
Rogers Still at Large.
The Nonpareil says that it was re
ported at Council PlulTs Saturday that
J. A. Rogers, the Individual who swin
dled many residents of Council Plufls
and Glcnwood and then decamped,
leaving his young wife behind, had
been captured in a southern state and
would be brought back, but this report
could not be confirmed.
There Is evidence which will be used
In the event of Roger's capture to
prove that he is not only a smooth
swindler, but a forgerer and a perjurer
as well. The Nonpareil says suspicion
Is voiced that he may also be a biga
mist, as he Is over 40 years of age and
was not known here prior to about a
year ago. His ability to deceive both
men and women has been amply at
tested by his career while making
headquarters In Council Pluffs. Glen

BIG RIPRAP WORK AT RULOj

I M W l I IliQl Vtl IIWUM lllbtf IV Willi Ml
A special from Kulo says: "The
Pturlington railroad company Is laying
new steel on the line between Kulo
and Atchison, they have a large force
at work. Their riprap work at the
Powkcrbend Is giving good satisfac
tion and the river Is helping the rlp
rapplng by throwing a sand bar against
it. This bar will be a great source of
comfort to the company as the river
has threatened this track many times
at the Powker bend and along the
huge bluffs a little way below. The
company has spent several hundred
thousand dollars rlprapping and doing
work to stay the current.
The change of the river's course at
the Powker bend, It is claimed by
many, Is due to the riprap work and
piling work the company did at t he
great Iron bridge to save the founda
tion of that structure. These pilings
are driven In such a way it Is claimed,
as to direct the current of the steam
angling to the southeast, and this
lands the water three-fourths of n
mile from the Powker bend where It
has wrought s.i much d .image to farm
land and caused the P. & M. to riprap
to save their track. The two mile
levee on the Missouri side of the river
is progressing very nicely as the winter
has been so mild as tocnablc the labor
ers to work nearly every day. The
company is building this two mile
levee so that the top of it will he about
three feet above high water mark, and
there will never be any possible dan
ger of the river's cutting a new chan
nel through the big lake as It so many
times has threatened to do. This levee
is of sutliclent width to bear the strain
of high water and thousands of ions
of large rock are (irmly laid on it in
such a manner as to prevent washing
and these rocks are fastened In place
by woven wire netting spread and
firmly fastened over the rock. This
makes the levee permanent. It is es
timated that It will entail an expense
of at least frioo.ooo to do this work.
Dangers of Pneumonia.
A cold at this time if neglected is li
able to cause pneumonia which is so
often fatal, and even when the patient
has recovored the lungs are weakened,
making the peculiarly susceptible to
the development of consumption. Fo
ley's Honey and Tar will stop the
cough, heal and strengthen the lungs
and prevent pneumonia. La Gilppe
coughs yield qulokly to the wonderful
curative qualities of Foley's Honey
and Tar. There is nothing else "just
as good." F. G. Fricke & Co.
Mortensen to Test Eligibility.
A Lincoln dispatch says: An In
terpretation by the supreme court of
that much discussed section of the
constitution which provides that no
otlicerof the executive department of
the state administration shall be
eligible to another state ofiicc during
the term for which he is elected, is
demanded by State Treasurer Morten
sen. The treasurer wants to know
whether he is "unconstitutional," or
may aspire to the post of governor.
The following method of procedure
has been outlined:
"Petitions may be circulated to place
the name of Mr. Mortensen on the
otliclal ballot as a candidate for gover
nor. The law requires that r,Ko peti
tions may be presented to the secretary
of state. After the requisite numbs
of names has been secured the peti
tions will be ollered to the secretary
of state for riling. As the action Is a
friendly suit'to interpret the statute,
the secretary will refuse to accept or
ffle the petition, alleging that under
the constitution the treasurer is in
eligible to the office. Then an action
In mandamus will be begnn in the su
preme court, or in the district court
of Lancaster county, to compel the
registration of the petitions. In the
argument on this acion the attorney
general will appear on behalf of the
S2cretary of state, contending that
the constitutional provision bars the
treasurer from going on the ticket. A
prompt decision Is expected, which
will give plenty of time, if the treas
urer Is declared to be eligible for his

Editor Journal: In reading the notice
of the death of L. G. Todd, I see sev
eral mistakes In regard to the early
history of Casscounty. In speaking of
the first lawsuit In the district, the
one you spoke of was the second. The
lirst one was between Levi Walker and
a German by the name of llovvolsheldt.
The German had Walker arrested for
threatening to kill him, leilfhe testi
mony went to show that lie w;is more
scared than hurt.
The llrst wedding was C. (.'. Green,
commonly known as "Gopher" Green,
and the w idow Ellis. They were mar
ried by a justice of the peace from
Iowa, Powell byname, lie thought
he had a right to marry In Nebraska
the same as In Iowa. They lived to
gether three niontlis, at which lime
some of their friends told them they
were not legally married, so Mr. Todd
married them over.
Now In regard to his daughter Al
bina, Mrs. T. J.Thomas, being the
lirst white girl born In Cass county,
that Is a mistake. He was married
February 20, 1855. The said Alblna
was born February 20, 18.10. Now, at
that time I was the wife of his brother,
A. P. Todd, and was living In the same
house with him, when there was a
daughter horn unto me on July !i, 155,
just live months and nine days after
he was married, rnaklngniychlld about
seven months older than his. She Is
now the wife of Frank P. Manning:
and before my daughter was born there
was one born to Henry Shafer and
wife, June 1, lw55, hut she died; so
that makes my daughter the llrst one
born that lived. I think if the Todd
family have forgotten the length of
time after tliey were married until my
child was born, they had better look
up the family record before tliey pub
lish that story again.
