In conversation with Judge Archer, he tells us that he distinctly remem bers that on the 2nd day of May, thirty-two years ago, Cass county was vis ited by a heavy snow storm, at which time he was residing near Rock Bluffs, which was the only time until yes terday that snow ever fell in Cass county in May, since 1875. It was on Sunday and will be remembered by many of the old residents. Have to Use Ladders. The other day we met one of our lumber dealers going down street with a ladder on his shoulder. We asked him what be wanted with a ladder and he stated that the price of lum ber had gone so high that he bad to have a ladder to show customers his prices.

"I Am Glad To Write My Endorsement Of The Great Remedy Pe-ru-ita. I Do So Most Heartily." Julia Marlowe, 5 yFi " "I improveti under tlie treatment, but as soon as I stopped taking the medi cine, I got bad again. 'I took the medicine for two years, then J got sick again and gave up all hopes of getting cured. I saw a testimonial of a man whose case was similar to mine being cured by Peruna, so J thought I would give it a trial. "I procured a bottle at once and com menced taking it. I have taken several !ottles and am entirely cured. J ' have gained in strength andl L feel like a different person. I oe I eve Peruna is all that is claimsd J for it." Nervines, such as coal tar prepara tions, are doing a great deal of harm. Sleep medicines and headache powders are all alike, heart depressants, and should not be used.

Tribune, on the first page of which we find the famil iar face of our friend, Howell Smith, who for many years resided near Mc Paul. Iowa, and was known to numer ous people in this vicinity, being a brother of Mrs. I. S. White of Rock Bluffs precinct. Mr. Smith is a can didate for the Oklahoma legislature, and the Tribune "boosts"' him as follows: "Elder Howell Smith has been per suade by his friends all over Custer county to become a candidate for the state legislature and he has finally consented to make the race. As a democrat he will command a good strong vote, and on general princi ples as a good moral citizen, be should have a hearty endorsement from all of the people. Mr. Smith came to Oklahoma In 1893 and for the past fourteen years be has dwelt among the people of Custer, Blaine and Dewey counties. He is an able man. Besides being a strong exponent of the gospel he is a lawyer of ability and excellent business man. It was mainly through his efforts that the beautiful Christian church was built in Thomas. Democrats of Thomas and vicinity are pleased over Mr Smith's candidacy and they will make a mighty effort to elect him. Union Ledger. Several Narrow Escapes. The runaway accident in which Mr. Bryan figured in Vermont the other day, in which he immediately mount ed the wreckage and made a happy speech to the hundreds of people who swarmed about him, reminds us that he has had several close calls, when It seemed only providential interference saved him. He was once nearly killed by the falling of a platform in Florida. He narrowly escaped death in a rail road wreck four years ago. and about two years ago, in the grand canon in Arizona, the Bryan party became lost in the darkness. By cautious driving tbey finally reached home, and on the following morning the hosts discover ed that the wheels of the wagon con taining Mr. Bryan had passed within five inches of the very brink of a preci pice more than 1,000 feet straight down.

MAKE THE TOWN BEAUTIFUL Timely Suggestions that Shold be Accept ed by Every Property Owner In Plattsmouth. The Journal endorses every word of the following from the Lincoln Trade Ileview, and we hope many of our readers will do tlie same and act ac cordingly: "No resolution can be tak en by a community that will be more beneficial individually and collectively than a resolution to get together and make one's town more attractive, more cleanly and more desirable in which to live. This is the time to not only resolve but to act along these lines. Tnere is something in the prop osition that if a town is looked after in this way it will draw more people to it, but there is infinitely more in the proposition that work of this kind should be done for the good of the whole people now living in it. If your town has a population of two thous and you can benefit every one by im proving the cleanliness and appearance of the place entire. At best you could not reach nearly so many new people no matter how much you do. No where can work be done that will ac complish so much for little outlay as can be done in our prairie cities. Ne braska towns can be made attractive at a minimum expense, practically with no expense if each individual property owner does his part. Let a city get right on sidewalk construc tion and half the battle for a pretty town is won. Let there be a system of town cleaning that will clean up filthy and filled up alleys and another long step is taken in the right direc tion. Neither of these requre addition expenditure of money, they simply re quire something that has to be done right and thoroughly. In no way can a commercial club organization do a more appreciative work than by join ing hands with its local government to make their town clean and attractive." FIRST NATIONAL FILES SUIT Against the Executrix and Heirs of the Estate cf Frederick D. Lenhoff. In the district court Friday a peti tion of suit was filed by the First National Bank, through their attor ney, airainst the heirs and the execut rix of the estate of the late Frederick D. Lenholl, deceased, and all of the following parties are made defendants in the suit: Katherine E. LenbolT, as executrix of the estate of Frederick D. Lenhoff, deceased; F. W. Lenhoff, Geo. B. Lenhoff ahd Matilda Lenhoff, as heirs of the deceased, to recover on a note given by deceased to the Platts mouth Brick and Terra Cotta com pany, of which corporation said testa tor was a stockholder, and was for the sum of $666.40 with interest, which claim was allowed at the time the es tate of the deceased was probated in the county court. Later.executrix ap pealed the matter to the district court of Cass county, where said judg ment was confirmed and said claim or dered paid in the sum of $703.75 with interest and costs which amount is still unpaid. Plaintiff further alleges that said testator prior to May 5, 1903, was the owner of one-half of lot 6, in block 34, on which is situated a two-story brick building in the city of Plattsmouth, and that on said day for the purpose of defrauding and cheating said plain tiff a deed therefor was placed on record conveying the same to his son, Geo. B. Lenhoff in whose name it now appears on the records, and further alleges that said Geo. B. Lenhoff paid no consideration, the son being charged in conspiracy with the father and mother. Fred W. Lenhoff and Matilda Len hoff are both made parties thereto as heirs of the deceased. The plaintiff asks that said deed be set aside and adjudged fraudulent and subject said property to the payment of plaintiff's claim, or any other relief as may be equitable in the premises.

The Smith family should all go to Jamestown this summer in honor of their founder, John. The Chicago dog that inherited the $20,000 the other day is dead. Not all men or dogs can stand prosperity. Now, if a July snowstorm doesn't come along there'll be watermelons enough to enrich the suffering rail roads. In the matter of wearing spring hats the women would govern them selves by the calendar, even were the snow a foot deep. Flames burst out in a Missouri church while the pastor preached of hell. Such realism must have caused the wicked to quake. The women are vindicated. It is drink, and not food unlike that which mother used to make, that heads the list of divorce charges. A Wall street financier's time is largely divided between wishing the president would say something and then wishing he hadn't said it. Mr. Henry Watterson says Mr. Roos evelt could not get a third term if he wanted it. If this nagging keeps up, Mr. Roosevelt will get into the next race yet. A scientist says that the hammer is the oldest tool known to man. It is used as much as any other and always has been. Yes, arid the knocker goes with it. Ilondurian rebels, being unable to find any country which will knock the chip off her collective shoulder, have gone to fighting among themselves. There's nothing like keeping in prac tice. A Kentucky grand jury has indict ed a milkman who delivered milk with minnows in it. Don't be too hard on the poor man maybe he was just trying to show the Colonels how bard a fish can drink. Housewives have an excellent op portunity to prove the truth or un truth of the theory that thunder sours milk. The point can be settled by keeping tab on the Alton cow which was struck by lightning and lived "to tell the tale." A Lousiana railroad president re signed because he could not get an an nual pass over his own line. Hard times for the magnates. The ground hog limitation expired six weeks ago but that pestiferous lit tle vermint seems to be wholly unen lightened upon the matter. The city campaign is on at Lincoln, and a very dirty fight is being made against Mayor Brown: Brown ap pears to be really too good for that town. Railroads in the United States killed or injured 20,894 persons in the three last months of 1906. Sane speed, safety devices and intelligent supervision would materially lesson this awful harvest. Some lecturer on health says that a man ought to be ashamed to show his face in heaven before he is 70. The late Josh Billings said that everybody wanted to go to heaven but nobody was in a hurry about it. An old maid who edits a depart ment of an exchange gives warning to the girls that "when out riding with a gentleman friend, when he buckles the lines together there is going to be something doing." This is the voice of wisdom speaking from age and ex perience. Under the new primary law it is an offense to sign the petition of more than one candidate for the same of fice. After while the people will get over the habit of signing every paper brought to them where it costs noth ing. This law will be a good teacher along that line. Voluntary Petition in Bankruptcy. The Lincoln Journal of this morn ing contains the following: "A volun tary petition in bankruptcy was tiled bv II. D.Travis of Plattsmouth for William M. Divine, a merchant of Greenwood, in federal court yesterday. It was said tlie property of Mr. Divine will more thin pay the claims, if pro perly handled; that iiis business con sisting of a $7,ooo stock of goods, is in ood shapt and that ill health causes him to takt. this step. His debts are scheduled at i,122.'JJ,of which amount tlie sum of $3,23' is secured. Judge T. C. Muner entered a order in bank ruptcy and refferred the case to Referee J. A. C. Kennedy. It is said that Mr. Divine is ailing from con sumption." OUR CITY IN GOOD SHAPE Not a City in Nebraska That Can Show a Better Financial Standing HOME FIRST THE WORLD AFTERWARD A Decrease of Fifty-five Per Cent on City Taxes in Three Years. There is not a city in Nebraska that can claim right now a brighter future than Plattsmouth. In the first place, the city is in the best financial condi tion she has been for many years and many of the older inhabitants say in a better shape as regards taxation, the town has ever been. Another thing, our business men are becoming more congenial with each other, and are more disposed than ever to "all pull together" for Plattsmouth. It is with considerable pride that the Journal points to the excellent condition of our city. There has been a gradual decrease of taxation in the past three years, and today the records show a total decrease of 55 per cent in that time. Not only this, but there is not a single over-draft or registered warrant, with $23,104 in the city treas ury. This is certainly a record of which every taxpayer should feel proud. While we can thus boast of such an excellent financial condition, it is but justice that due credit should be given to Mayor Gering and the members of the council, who have as sisted him in the engineeringof public affairs. It is indeed a record they can point to with pride. There is not a city, town or village in the state of Nebraska that can show a better condition financially, and we very much doubt if there is even one with as good showing. Such a state of affairs has much to do with inducing new comers and manufac turing establishments to locate here. No one wants to locate in a town that is head over heels in debt and the rate of interest and taxation beyond that of other cities of Plattsmouth's dimensions. Under present conditions people are coming to Plattsmouth every day, buy ing property and locating here, manu facturing establishments have an eye in this direction with a view of loca ting in the future, and with the com ing of the Interurban road, we may expect big things for Plattsmouth. But with all these things in view, let our business men and merchants gen erally continue to pull together for a "Greater Plattsmouth," and success is bound to crown our efforts.

The Kansas City Times of May 2, in speaking of the steamer "Omaha," formerly the "Lora" says: "Ten tons of confetti and live tons of fireworks were delivered in Kansas City yester day by Captain Alex Stewart of the river steamer Omaha. The Omaha left St. Louis a week ago Tuesday and is bound for Omaha, where it is to be used as an excursion boat. Ten tons of farm machinery was delivered in Jefferson City. There are fewer snaes in the river now than ever before, said Captain Stewart." Assessors Finish. J. W. Reasoner of South Bend pre cinct, Wilson Gilmoreof Mt. Pleasant, and I. W.

RULING ON SCAVENGER LAW Judge Jessen Interprets the Rights County Commissioners to Bid of A special from Nebraka City says: "Judge i'aul Jessi'ti hai.dd down ati important decision on Uhmu'w revenue law. It was In the city of W. V. Hair vs I'. M. Cook, county treasurer. The suit was instituted some time since to test certain portions of t he law. Thn county commissioners had gone Into the treasurer's olllce after the treasur er had made ills sales and raised the bids on a large amount of property which had been bid on below its actual value. Tlie commissioners increased the bids over $10,000 and they consid ered their bids were low, when the act ual value of the property was taken into consideration. The first question raised was if tlie commissioners iiad a right to go to the treasurer and bid on any property on which there was de linquent taxes save on the days of sale. The next was if they did where were they going to get the money, which the law says must be put up by any one biding over another. All of the mem bers of the bar were present, and di- cussed the matter with Judge Jessen last week and he took tlie case under advisement. Yesterday he iianded down a decision in which lie held the commissioners had no right to bid at any time save at sales, only as individ uals and ordered tlie treasurer to ac cept the bid of Mr. Hair, which had been offered prior to that of the com missioners. All of the property in this city and county on which there were delinquent taxes had been sold last year and the buyers of the certificates ure well pleased with the decision, but it will lose to the county many thous and of dollars when if the commission ers were able to have carried out their idea and bought in the property and sold it at private sale. The commis sioners may instruct the county attor ney to take the matter to the supreme court and have that body pass upon the questions raised." Funeral of Mrs. Sarah Peterson. The funeral of the late Mrs. Sarah Peterson occurred Sunday afternoon at 2:30, the services being conducted from the house by Rev. Swanson, of the Swedish Mission church of Wahoo, assisted by Rev. Houlgateof this city. Quite a large number of friends and relataves were in attendance t o pay their last sad rites to a noble pioneer lady, a most dutiful wife and loving and affectionate mother. Tlie services were very impressive, the Swedish ladies aid society contributing several very beautiful and appropriate vocal numbers. After the servies the re mains were conveyed toOak Hill ceme tery followed by a large number of sympathizing friends, where inter ment was made. Many out of town friends were here to attend the funeral, among whom were Mr. and Mrs. Nels Ilawkinson, and Mr. and Mrs. Cba.s. Bong, of Havelock, Mrs. A. K, Carlson, and daughter, Miss Esther, and the Misses Mayme and Edith Johnson, of Omaha, and Miss Josephine and Sigrid Anderson of Lincoln. The pallbearers were composed of the following gentlemen: L. C. Ander son, John Holstrom, L. G. Larson, August Anderson, Chas. E. Ryberg and A. Piestrupt. The deceased was a most excellent lady, and being among the pioneer citizens of Plattsmouth was widely known for her many fine traits of character.

A Cold Spring Kills Grasshoppers. F. M. Timblin of Weeping Water relates an incident showing one pe riod in the history of Nebraska when a freeze toward the end of April was a blessing for the state and saved the country from the gassnoppers. The first grasshopper raid occurred in 1366, the arrival being so late that little damage was done to crops and tbey left their eggs, however, and did much damage the following year. The sec ond raid occurred in 1874. Then they came in August and cleaned outevei -thing and also did much damage t& following spring. The third and Iaal raid was in 1376, when considerable, damage was done to crops and the ground was filled with eggs for the succeeding spring. About April 1,1877, the eggs hatched and millions of hop pers swarmed over Nebraska fields, threatening every growing thing. The farmers were disheartened and it be gan to look as if the country was never to be free from the pests. A cold rain killed off the first batch but the hop pers were up and coming again when a snow about the middleof April killed more. On the night of April, 2'J, the ground froze hard and finished the goo work. When you need a pill, take a pill, and be sure its an Early Riser.
