Never since the year that a portion
of the Burlington shops were removed
from this city to Havelock, has Platts
mouth boasted of the number of in
habitants that we can boast of at the
present time. Take for an Illustration,
the Increase in the numberof children
between the ages of 5 and ".'1 years, and
it shows a total of 1, .':;. Tills is ac
counted for by the many families that
lave moved here from other states,
and have found steady employment in
the shops or in other avocations. We
must all acknowledge that there has
been a steady growth and Improve
ment In Plattsmouth In the past two
years. The Journal Is no enthusiast,
but for tbe benefit of the city we all
must toot our own horns when It be
comes necessary, utner towns no it,
and so must we.
The citizens are becoming more In
terested In the welfare of the city and
many good words may be heard on
very hand, for its future welfare. It
Is apparent, also, that there Is a steady
growth In the population of PlattS'
mouth. A walk over the city will dis
close the fact, that there are but very
few, if indeed any, desirable residences
now vacant, and, figuring our popula
tion upon the same basis used by
Omaha and Lincoln and other cities
of our state, in arriving at and an
nouncing their population, viz: figur
ing from the number of children of
school age In the city, and It will give
us a population of nearly, If not quite,
S,0o0. The future of Plattsmouth Is
by no means waning, but has the ap
pearance to a casual observer of hav
ing a very bright future, and Is bound
to receive ber share of the emigration
from the cast to the west.
The Journal Is no optimist, or any
thing of that kind, but from the day
we entered the city to make It our
abiding place, over four years ago, we
have had faith In the future of Platts
mouth. All towns and cities have
their reverses. Plattsmouth has had
hers, and from now, on, with "a long
pull and pull altogether," we will In
side of the next five years boast of a
population ot not less than 10,000,
based on the average Increase In the
rast two years.

An automobile owner sends in the
following rules worthy of considera

their horses on the appearance of

to avoid accidents as horse owners,
and a little caution and observance of
the rules will materially lessen the
chances for trouble. Here Is what he
''Never try to pass a car on a side
bill. Stop your team either at the
top or bottom of a bill until the car
passes. It is very difficult to stop a
car going down hill, particularly on
a side bill. If you are on tbe road.
and a car approaches from tbe rear,
and you cannot trust your team to
turn out, drive straight ahead to the
first cross road, where you can turn
out and let the car go by. Then come
back into the road behind the car. Do
not try to be smart and drive ahead
Just to annoy the car, for tbe man Is
liable to lose patience or take it for
granted that your team Is not afraid
of the auto and rush past you at tbe
first opportunity. If you are meeting
a car and have a bad horse, signal
the car by a wave of the hand, and
the man will assist you to get by. Do
not attempt to drive ahead and pass
a car unless you are not afraid. If
team is troublesome, Just stop and
signal, and the car man will do his
part to help avoiding trouble. Don't
hesitate to signal. Any chaffeur will
understand it. Always keep cool and
do not get excited. Often the driver
