I j the fact that he came here when a ;

was but one house in this city, that ,
being a double log cabin occupied by I
Peter Sarpy. The McDaniels family ate
their first meal on Nebraska soil near
the big spring where the Burlington
blacksmith shop now stands. At that
time the Indian and the Buffalo roamed
the prairies and Jack remembers dis
tinctly the migration of one thousand
warriors after the signing of a treaty
with the whites. From this it is plain
to see that Jack is one of the old timers
of the connty.

An Impromptu Shower
An impromptu shower was given
Rev. A. A. Randall and his esteemed
wife last Saturday night by the members
of his flock who assembled at the Meth
odist parsonage in couples and squads
until the large proportion of the cong
regation was assembled. And .they
counted on making the shower a most
substantial one as they had a fine suite
of cloths for Rev. Randall and numerous
other articles all of a useful sort for
the remainder of the family. One of
the most diverting features of the oc
casion was the fact that Rev. Randall
was in Omaha during the afternoon and
missed his train returning home with
the result that he was absent when the
guests poured in upon his astonished
wife. He returned at ten o'clock
and J. L. Thompson was in waiting at
the depot and immediately took him in
to his buggy, hurrying him to the house
where he did the suprising by appear
ing among the guests unexpectedly.
The evening was a most enjoyable one
barring that portion marred Rev. Ran
dall's absence, and one which will long
be remembered by all.
Cleaning Up Today.
Workmen today are engaged in clean
ing up after the paving gang and com
pleting the few odds and ends remain
ing of the work. Contractor Wood worth
expects to make the final settlement
with the city tonight at the council
meeting for the work which appears to
have been done in a workman like man
ner. The streets present a fine appear
ance and will easily carry an immense
amount of water in the future prevent
ing floods entering the stores by the
front way at least. The work has been
expensive and Mr. Wodworth has not
grown rich over it but he seems to have
given the city a square deal.
Martin B. Houk is in the city, having
been visiting friends here for a week
past. "Buck" has not recovered en
tirely from his being overcome with
heat sometime back but hopes to be all
right as soon as the weather cools off
In County Court today, Judge Beeson
held the final hearing in the matter of
the estate of Frank G. and Sophia K.
Brown, discharging N. H. Meeker as
administrator, his accounts with the
estate having been approved as correct.
Visit to Be Postponed.
The visit of St. Luke's Choir to All
Saint's Church, Omaha, has been post
poned to the 2nd Sunday in Oct., be
cause of the absence of the Rev.
lackey, trom Omaha, at the present
Mrs. A. C. Godwin came down from
Omaha this morning, where she has
been the guest of friends. Her many
friends will regret to learn that she is
soon to remove from this city to make
her home in the metropolis. Mr. God
win having severed his connection with
the Burlington brass foundry at this
point and entered the company service
as a switchman in the Omaha yards,
and they have found it necessary to
remove to that point.
FAIR A SUGGESS
Exhibits of Fruits, Corn and
HorsGS Very Fine.
i For the first time since the inripienry
; of the Nehawka fair a Journal reporter
i attended the annual event last Satur
day, and to say that he was surprised
to see such a display of farm products
but half expresses it, and the crowd
was very large.
The exhibit grounds were well located,
being on the school ground, with the
race track closelv connected. The
writer took in everything he possibly
could and can say we were abundantly
well paid for the time spent in viewing
A large tent was used for the flora
hall, and as we entered it reminded us
somewhat of our boyhood days when
the county fair was the attraction o
everybody. Everything was displayed
in magnificent shape, and much credit
is due to the superintendent of this de
partment and assistants for the manner
in which the exhibits were tastily ar
The parade of fine horres in the af
ternoon was very good, displaying some
of the finest roadsters, stallions and
buggy horses we have ever seen col
lected together. The parade passed
through the principal screet, headed by
the Union band, after which the racing
and ball game came ofT, both of which
were viewed by hundreds of people
We oid not get the awards in the rac
ing, put iumwoou carried nome tne
first przie in the contest, Union getting
the second. The trame was hotly con
There was nothing to mar the pleas
ure of the occasion, except dust, and
everyone seemed to enjoy meeting their
friends. There was quite a number of
candidates present, taking advantage
of the opportunity to interview the
Plattsmouth, as usual, was pretty
well represented, as was also Union
and other towns in the county. The
train from Lincoln in the morning con
tained only one regular passenger coach
and the smoker, and the people in going
to and from the fair were wedged in
like sardines in a box. In this manner
the Missouri Pacific was exceedingly
liberal in accommodations. They used
nothing only their every day service to
accommodate two or three hundred ex
tra passengers. Such accommodations
is an outrage upon the patrons of the
road. They knew the strain that would
be placed upon the train accommoda
tions for this fair and should have at
least had another car attached.
The crowd present on Saturday far
exceeded the expectations of the man
agers. who deserve great credit for
their energy and enterprise. The Ne
hawka fair is a fixture and is becoming
more popular with the farmers of Cass
county each succeeding year, and The
Journal feels elated to know there is
one section in the old county where in
ducements are offered the farmers to
display the products of their toil and
vie with each other on the good and
bad qualities of the cereals and fruit
cultivated, as well as the qualities of
Nehawka is one of the progressive
little towns of the county, right up-to-
date in all things that go to make a
good, live community. The town can
boast of a number of fine business
houses, fine residences, good schools,
and one of the liveliest papers in the
state to help them along in their vim
and enterprise. Mr. O'Day, the editor,
is one of the progressives of the town
and is "right up to snuff" in everything
pertaining to the welfare of Nehawka
and the surrounding community.
We cannot ciose this article without
paying our respects to the Union band,
which enlivened the occasion by their
most excellent music. Everybody had
a good word for the Union band, and
the organization deserves great praise,
as it is one ot the best in the country,
and their fine instruments and uniforms
were the admiration of all. Long live
the Union band, as it is composed of
the best fellows in the world.
Miss Edith Pitz last Friday was a
guest of Miss Jessie Drost near Murray
and Saturday the two young ladies
drove down to Nehawka where they en
joyed the fine exhibit of that busy little
city's productions, and participated in
one of the best fairs ever held in Cass

been visiting with friends and relatives

THE HARVEST HOME
DOINGS AT MURDOCH
Had a Large Attendance and
Was a Great Success.
A Journal representative attended
the Harvest Home Festival at Mur-
dock Thursday and Friday and feel well
repaid for so doing. The festival was
a three-day affair, and was engineered
by the energetic business men of that
enterprising little city. On Thursday
the Elmwood merchants closed their
places of business and came over with
their conveyances gaily decoraied with
They were headed by the Elmwood
band, followed by a number of hay
racks, carryalls, carriages and buggies,
conveying in all at least two hundred
and fifty men, women and children, and
as they passed through the town they
were greeted by cheer after cheer from
the hundreds already assembled. As
The Journal has often said that Elm
wood never does things by halves, this
is but another evidence of the truth of
our assertion. The welcome the Elm
wood people received was very marked
and deserved. The people of Murdock
are of that character to believe in reci
procity and Elmwood will not be forgot
ten when opportunity is afforded.
A large tent was erected for the var
ious entertainments, such as speaking,
concerts, etc. Each day the Murdock
band and a male quartette from Omaha
gave concerts in the ' afternoon, after
which a game of ball took place. The
first day Murdock won from Elmwood,
and on Friday Murdock again won from
Eagle, and again on Saturday, we un
derstand, Murdock won from Manley.
As we departed Friday evening for Ne
hawka, we did learn what occurred on
Saturday, but there was a large at
tendance. The attractions, while not up to that
which larger towns could present,
were very creditable and demonstrated
what a live little burg can do when
they don their hustling clothes. The
prime movers in the Harvest Home
Festival were Martin & Tool, Harry
McDonald, H. E. Neitzel, Langhorst &
Rughe, and in fact all the business I
men of the town added their mite to j
the success of the event. All places of
business were closed in the afternoon
from 1 to 4 o'clock, in order that the
proprietors and clerks might mingle
with the visitors and make their stay
as pleasant as possible.
Every section of Cass county seemed
to be well represented, and everyone
seemed surprised that Murdock would
undertake a demonstration of this mag
nitude. The merry-go-round was there
to please the children, the shooting
gallery, the baby rack, Mandy, the
kicking mule, and many other amuse
ments for old and voung.
It is surprising what a town can do
for itself when the business men be
come united and harmonious in their
work. Here is a small town of less I
than 400 inhabitants putting their hands
down deep in their pockets to furni.sh '
the means for amusements and three
days of pleasure for everybody.
Their cash prizes for the best driving, ;
draft and single rig, colt show, racing, i
tug-of-war, etc., moving picture show j
each evening, besides many other at
tractions, is evidence sufficient that the
enterprising people of Mnrdock did not
spare either pains or money to make
their first annual Harvest Home Fes
tival a grand success in every partic
ular. Murdock is situated in the center of
the finest country that lays out-of-doors
and is possessed of as enterprising and
energetic a class of business people as
there is in Nebraska, and the spirit of
progress they possess and will keep on
possessing is bound to build up a com
munity and a town hard to beat.
