Enjoy An Outing in the Cool,
Shady Grove of Mr. Despain,
in South Park. .
The Methodist Sunday school yes
terday held one of the most success
ful picnics ever given by a similar
organization in this part of the coun
ty. The school members, more than
a hundred strong, met at the church
about 9 o'clock and marched to the
-ool, shady grove of Mr. Despain in
South Park. Mr. Kirby furnished a
team, wagon and hay rack, on which
were conyeyed some of the younger
members of the school as well as
the lunch baskets to the picnic
ground. The grounds were pictur
esque coolness, the ground being cov
ered with a carpet of the greenest
grass imaginable. There was a large
barrel of ice water which was kept
full to overflowing, and every mem
ber of the school was on the water
waon, so to speak. Swings were
provided and every girl on the ground
had a swing. Two ball teams were
organized and a game between" the
larger teani3 and a game between
the smaller boys were both hotly con
tested, and it is safe to say that this
school has some fine athletes ameAig
their number. One of the impromp
tu amusements was that of skipping
the rope, a rope about forty feet in
length was swung by some of the
larger boys, while the maidens skip
ped it to their hearts' contest. The
lunches, provided by the fond par
ents were delicate and appetizing and
the ladies prepared the picnic dinner
by spreading table cloths on the
grass for a distance of forty feet
and the dinner was placed on this.
When all was ready, the picnickers
stood with bared heads while Rev.
Austin asked a blessing. It needed no
Invitation to the membership to fall
to, and not a thing was left but the
white linen tablecloths. As a sur
prise to the little folks, five large
water mellons were brought forth at
the end of the repast and carved and
each member of the company enjoyed
a ehare of the mellon. It did the
superintendent's heart good to see
the hearty manner in which the
school ate the mellon. We forgot to
state that Father Wynn was marshal
of the day, ably assisted .by Rev.
Austin and Superintendent Wescott.
At the close of the day of Jollity,
Mr. Kirby drove In with a large num
ber of the festive picnickers on his
hay-rack. And the music made by
the happy band of children could be
heard for several blocks.
Has Accepted Nomination.
C. E. Metzger of Cedar Creek was
in the city today looking after busi
ness matters and incidentally called
at the county clerk's office and told
the boys that he would accept the
nomination for representative. Pre
vious to the primary, Mr. Metzger
was not a candidate, but since his
friends, many of them, went to the
C. E. METZGER. Cedar Creek
polls and voted for him, he does not
feel justified in declining. He is a
model young ihan. born and reared
on the farm, a graduate from ihe
Plattsmouth Midi school, and well
i known, not only to all the oid citi
zens, but younger ones Included. He
is In the ra -e to win, and expects to
make an active canvas of the coun
ty. We shall have more to say re
garding Mr. Merger's candidacy, and
cherish the ho,e that all who have
the interests of Cass county at heart,
will remember him on election day;
give him a boost, for a position he
Is so admirably well fitted to fill.

We are in reeeii't of a letter from
John Murray formerly of thi. city
but now a resident of Alva. Okla., it:
which he encloses the amount to pay
Lis subscription to our daily for an
other year. Please accept our thanks'.
In his letter Mr. Murray states that
they are having lots of rain in his
loc ality now , so much that it has been
so wet that he has been able to work
but three and one half days in two
weeks. He also states that they w ill
have lot3 of peaches, and the apple
orchards, that are old enough to bear
are full. Wheat Is g d, his wheat
yielding 23 U bushels to th acre,
had 40 acres of wheat that made 40
bushels to the acre and 115 acres
that will average 30j bushels to
the acre. This was raised on one of
G. W. Young's farms. Mr. Murray
also says that he Is sending us some
samples of his peaches by express,
today (Monday) which, he says, will
reach us about the same time as this
letter, but up to this time we have
not 'received them. He says the
peaches are not near as nice as they
would have been if they had had
some rain six or seven weeks ago.
Mr. Murray is a former resident of
this city and county and he and his
estimable family are quite well know n
throughout this locality and their
many friends here will be pleased
to learn of their success in their

one of our best young business men,

large and is well qualified to per

credit to himself and his friends.
While the Journal had no favorite

Railroad Managers Estimate
Yield Better Each Day, If
Frost Doesn't Prevent.
Managers of two of the great rail
ways traversing Nebraska have been
getting figures on the prospective
corn crop since grain men estimated
ten days ago that there would not be
over 120,000,000 bushels thl3 year
and none to ship out of the state.
The railway men believe they see not
only all the corn In prospect that the
state will use, but also a substantial
share to sell to the eaBt and south.
General Manager Frank Walters of
t!:e Northwestern says: "A careful
estimate based upon reports of super
intendents and agents is to the ef
fect that the production of corn
barring early frosts will equal if
not exceed that of last year along
this company's lines. In Nebraska
our reports indicate that this may
not apply to the entire state, for there
are places where early corn was se
riously damaged by drouth and also
quite a percentage of late corn by
reason of lack of moisture, has not
eared out properly and Borne Is en
"We estimate the production of
corn in Nebraska this year early
frosts not preventing at from 150,
000,000 to 160,000,000 bushels."
Both the freight and the passen
ger managers of the Burlington esti
mate that Nebraska Is likely to reach
fully 200,000,000 bushels of corn.
"No man can tell," says General Pas
senger Agent Walkeley, "what the
yield will be; every day adds to It;
at best it may exceed 200,000,000
