A New Jail.
Many of our farmer friends have re
cently expressed themselves favorable
to the crctlon of a new Jail. Of course
It Is a subject In which the taxpayers
and farmers of the county are as much
Interested as the citizens of Platts-
mouth. It has recently come to light
that the old bastlle Is Impure even to
place the lowest grade ot human be
Ings, and under existing clrcum
stances It may cost the county more
some of these days than a new Jail. If
ever a man Is Incarcerated In it for
any lencth of time, and that man
should have relatives who are tinan
dally well fixed and they should bring
suit against the county for pnttlng
their relative In nuarters like those i
the old bastlle. it Is the opinion of
manv that big damages could be re
covered. This Is one reason why
new jail should be built. Ye nnde
stand the county commissioners favor
the erection of a new one on that
ground also. The Journal would Ilk
to get an expression from the farmers
In various sections of the county In re
gard to this matter. We are no more
Interested In the building of a new
Jail than anyone else, but everyone,
and this Includes many farmers, who
have visited the old quarters, say It
would be a disgrace to any county and
docs not rctlcct much credit upon the
people of Cass county who w ill oppose
the building of a new one. Lot ns
hear from the taxpayers, and decide
upon the matter before it Is everlast
ingly too late to rrcvent the county
from getting into a law suit that will
perhaps cost them nearly as much as a
MOTHER OBJECT LESSON
i Those Who Still Insist on Patronizing
Sears, Roebuck I Co.
Not many moons since one of Cass
county's gixxl housew ives came to the
conclusion that under trie present
outlook for excellent cmps of all kinds
she could afford a new carpet for her
best room. Consequently she pre
vailed upon her lord and master to
supply her desire. He in accordance
with her wishes sent to Sears, Roebuck
& Co., for samples. The samples of
course arrived In due time, viewed and
the one to suit the good lady's wishes
was ordered, the money of course ac
companying the order. Indue touise
of time the carpet arrived, was taken
home, spread out -upon the floor for
which It was made, and lo.and behold,
It was not anything like the sample
from which It was ordered. It was
packed up and returned to whence It
lb came- the "great" department store

carpet ordered or return the money

Home Flrst-the World Afterward."
This Is a motto that the Journal has
always advocated, and we regret that
It Is not more strictly adhered to In
1'lattsmouth. Kvery kind of work
done In this city should be, given to
home workmen when they are able to
do It. We have as good mechanics In
1'lattsmouth as they have in any town
on earth, and those who make
heir homes among us should have the
preference over those of other towns.
A kick has been registered at this of
fice by several of our home mechanics,
who say that the county commission
ers, who Imported a boiler maker here
from Omaha to repair the court house
boiler, have deviated from this rule.
We have workmen In I'lattsmouth
who are just as competent to repair
boilers as any that can be Imported
from Omaha, and at the time the work
was lielng done there was a boiler
maker here w ho was not doing a thing,
and who had before been called upon
to do the same work. He Is a home
man and the family pay taxes Into the
county treasury each year to the
amount of $1(1.00 or $17.00. With all
due respect to the commissioners we
are not making this point directly
them, but it simply serves as an Illus
tration to some of our business men,
who complain about people going away
from home to buy goods, and at the
same time will employ outsiders to do
work that properly belongs to home
mechanics. "What Is sauce for the
