June 17th is the date given by astronomers for the total

happen and the chickens all should all go to roost, the people
will not forget the fact and go to bed.

Nebraska succeed in nullifying the guaranty law as passed bv
the legislature last winter, (Jov. Shallenberger will convene the
legislature in extra session before the ink is dry upon the

From the fact that Senators tturkett and Iirown are divid
ed upon the tariff question as frequently as they vote together
leads one to the conclusion that the gentlemen are trving to
make friends on both sides of that ouestion. Ibirkctt voted to
retain a high tariff on sugar, while lirown stood for high tariff

The Phittsiiiouth Journal remarks that there are more
hypocrites in Lincoln to the square yard than anv communitv
on earth, according to population. That's rather harsh, liro.
l'ates, but if you are judging by the number of "temperance"
people who stocked their cellars and sideboards with beer and
booze before the saloons closed, we mav have to admit the al
legation, and tip our lint to the allegator. Lincoln Herald.
Strange how people who are accepted as being sane will
carry on. One Dr. Clemin.-on of Chicago copped out three or
four females that he thought more of than be did his wife "for
the sake cf the children," allowed Doe to hang around the
l one when it was convergent for him and kept her secret.
Knnlly Doe concluded I is wife was in the way and according
to the dispatches he irave her a dose that made her look good
lo the undertaker. How much better it would have been for
thi couple to have unhitched when they found out thev could
ot travel peacefully in double harness. Euteirelv too manv
divorces nre neglected until it is too late.
If all the charity tales related in behalf of the late mil

between him and Andrew Carnegie! ledgers gave charitvfrom
the heart, while Carnegie gave for public noterietv. Rogers
gave to the poor and needy while Carnagie gave to'thee who
were not needy. Every dollar Andrew Carnegie gave to the
people was f4.r an advertisement of the leader of the steel
trust, while many of the noble deeds in mis direction bv the
lamented liodgers were done quietly and without publication.

An exchange has some good works regarding the local mer
chant which is n pleasure to reproduce at this time. Every
business man is in business to make monev, or get enough to at.
least make a living. Hut in addition to'that he is also dcing
something for the community, giving something to the people
a I the time. Hut here is the article, read it, and von will con
dude there is much truth therein:
Without anv thought of sent
t.we allegiance to anyone, the cold, hard truth is that the re
tail merchants of our home town are the best business friends
we have. The retail merchant conducts a school of commerce
'or our education-and the tution is five. Everv man, woman
and child gets the benefits of seeing in the boiiie town nhrut
anything that is of real importance. He protects us against
fraud and deceit. He stands for the square deal.
You never order n $10 lightning rod of vour homo mer
chant and then have found your note for $1,000 'in the Ir.rk next
day as a result. You never paid him $f0 for a range tlin.
warped in six months without your wife getting the monev
back. He never charged you $7.") for a "trailer" buggv that
von found out afterwards could be hpught for $40. No, the
home merchant is just like you. He lives where he does busi
ness and bis success depends on making a friend of you and
your neighbor. Like you, he has to "make good."
The retail merchant is now the one great factor in our
commercial system and this is true solely because lie renders
as better services than we can get elsewhere. Take him nwag
and our lionie town is gone; take our home town awn nnj we
deprive our children of the retail store, which is the greatest
ingle educational factor in modern life. No, it cannot be.
l-'int X'v Drug; Store.
Plattsmouth Is hooii to have a
Hup, new, modern, up-to-the-minute
drug store In tho shape of the cna
which Is now being put In shnp'; by
Messrs Weyrleh and Iladraba. Thoss
young men as Ih well known have
taken the store room Immediately
east of the meat market of Kuns
man & Ramge and are engaged In
fitting It up preparatory to putting
In a fln, stock of drugs, and medi
cines and all other articles usually
handled In drug stores. The build
ing is being remodeled for their
occupancy, a handsome steel celling
being placed In It, a brand new mod
ern front being put in the building
and it being repainted and furnish
ed up In every possible way to make
It one cf the most attractive In
In ndditlon the fixtures are now
commencing to arrive and are being
put In place and within a very few
weeks the entire store will be In
shape and doing business. And tho
expect to do some business. Having
lived In this city practically all
their lives both Mr. Weyrleh and
Mr.' Iladraba are known to every,
man, woman and child In tho city
and they have a host of warm friends
who will bo glad to welcome them to
the ranks of riattsmouth business
men. They have both had many
years experience In the drug busi
ness, Mr. Weyrleh having been for
thlrten years connec ted with the firm
of Oerlng & Co., and having been the
pharmacist of that company for sev
eral years. He Is a druggist In every
sense of the word and thoroughly
understands the profession. Mr.
Hndraba Is likewise b practicing
pharmacist of many years experience.
Llko Mr. Weyrleh, he was for a num
ber of years connected with the firm
of Gerlng & Co., and was one of the
most reliable and trusted employes.
He has of late been located In Om
ahn and his whole course In the drug
business has been one of unlimited
success. That this combination of
brains and ability will make a sure
go of tho drug business here Is a
forgono conclusion and their ability
coupled with their personal popular
ity Insures th addition of another
reliable and vigorous firm to the
ranks of the business men of Platts
mouth. They hope to be ready for
business In a couple of weeks at the

Vaw Takes lllfect July ".
The following special from Lin
win, In reference to the daylight
snloi;n law, will no doubt be of In
terest to many of the Journal read
ers: "It Is very probable that the
saloons of Omaha and of tho re
mainder of the state may stay open
after 8 o'clock until July 5, without
violating the 8 o'clock dosing law.
Such is the decision of W. A. Furse,
private secretary to tho governor,
who looked the question up
upon receipt of a letter from North
Bend, asking when the law went
Into effect. The records of the legis
lature show that body adjourned
April 1, and as the constitu
tion provides that all laws not car
rying the emergency clause shall
take effect three calander months
after the adjornment, It was sup
posed tho laws passed by that legis
lature would go Into effect July 2.
But the records of the governor's of
fice show that business was trans
acted by the legislature after April
1, and up to April 4, when It was
finally adjourned. In the case
wherein Geovernor Sheldon vetoed
the appropriation for the Kearney
Normal school, tho court held the
custom of stopping the clock by the
legislature did not stop time, so Mr.
Furse figures that the legislature
really adjourned April 4, and there
fore the laws enacted by that legis
lature go Into effect July 5. How
ever, Mr. Furse did not promise that
be would defend any saloon keeper
who kept open after S o'clock until
July 5. nnd neither would he prom
ise to stand for the cost, should any
of them he prosecuted."
Call (iaine Sat unlay.
The ball game last Saturday re
sulted In an easy vistory for the
Plattsmouth team over the Geo. H.
Lee team of Omaha. The Omahogs
never had a look-In for victory In the
game, their pitcher being batted at
w ill and they being unable to do any
thing with either Mason or Baylor.
The former pitched six innings of
the game very efficiently and the
latter pitched the last three innings
of the game also with much effect.
Owing to a lack of space a detailed
account of the game cannot be given.
The local team put up their best
game so far this season. The score
was 9 to 2.
In the future The Journal expects
to print detailed scores of the games
with special write-ups. ;
A letter Is at this office for Man
ager Warren cf the local team seek
ing to engage them for a Fourth of
July game. He can have same by
calling for it.
