Last Night's Storm
After threatening a storm, anil the

which go to make the electric displays
and the cyconie winds and the downpour
of the waters, for a number of hours,
and having all in readiness, the storm
of last night broke in all its fury upon
the defenseless heads af the people of
Plattsniouth about 10 o'clock. There
rarely occurs a more severe stoimofits
character than the one on exhibition
last night, as for fireworks, there was
not a time for an hour that there was

to think a hurricane was aiout due to

the burning building which could only
be seen to the best advantage when the
electric glare was less violent, added to
the panoramic spectacle.
The horses were all gotten out but
the structure was an entire loss which
amounted to $1700 and pretty well cov

the building and contents.
A bolt descended about the same time

two doing little damage, and otherwise
there was nothing to speak of except
