Neither can you spend your hundred
cents and have a dollar, too. It isn't
sensible to let every dollar get away
from you, If you spend every dollar
of your income some one else puts the
money in the bank. It is far better

The Journal Received a Telegram Last
Evening at 4:52, but Too
Late for Last Evening's Issue.
The many friends of Miss Teresa
Herapel la Plattsmouth will rejoice
when they learn that that excellent
lady has been re-elected to the Impor
tant position of of Grand Recorder of
the Degree of Honor for another term
of two years. The Journal received a
telegram last evening from Miss Anna
Ilassler, giving us this most welcome
news, but the same did not reach us
In time to make the announcement In
last evening's paper. The telegram
arrived at 4:52, about twenty minutes
after the paper had gone to press.
This will be the fourth term for Miss
Hempel, and there would have been
no contest In the election this time had
it not been for a desire on a part of
the members to remove the office from
this city to Grand Island. Miss Hem
pel stated before her departure to
Hastings, w here the grand lodge is be
ing held this week, that she would
rather not have the otlice than remove
to that place. Her motheriresldes In
Plattsmouth, and she loves her home
so well, and Its surroundings, that no
one can blame her In such decision.
The Journal Is gratified to chronicle
her election for the fourth term, from
the fact tlat by It shows the high es
teem in which she is held by members
of the order and a recognition of her
excellent business qualifications. Her
untiring efforts "for the good of the
order," is another thing In her favor.
There is no finer ladyjn the state of
Nebraska, and every body In Platts
mouth is glad of ber re-election to the
Important and responsible position of
Grand Recorder of the D. of II. of Ne
braska, and that the office will remain
In this city.

Pleasant precinct, a stone barn built

falls and rotten bridges as It does to
day but would gracefully across the

Plattsmouth to Weeping Water Falls.
The gray stone barn, then considered
a very large.barn, was a familiar steht
