She later Ltream be bri(ged at a point Just seventy feet from the Burlington railroad bridge. At this point it would take a structure over 400 feet long to cross the stream as it w idens out before entering the Missouri. In detail the bridge would have four eighty-foot spans over the chan net and a tressel span on each end A sixteen foot roadway would be on the space over the channed and a ten foot over the tressle spans. As there Is not a wagon bridge over the Platte nearer than Louisville it would undoubtedly be a positive blessing to farmers in eastern Ne braska and could easily be made to pay on the toll plan. A drive of twenty-five miles could be shortened for the farmer living on the south side of the Platte and wishing to go to Omaha. It would also make easier the handling of grain from one side of the river to the other. Residents of Plattsmouth, Nebras ka City and other South Pla.tU towns are In high glee over the prospects of the new bridge, as it will put thenf In much closer touch with the me tropolis of the state. It will make but a forty-two mile drive from Ne braska City to Omaha, and It Is pro posed to envolve a plan to keep up a splendid road all the way. Omaha Dee. PLACED IN RIVER STATE AUDITORS CHECK UP D. OF H. OFFICERS From Monday's Dally, Eniil Weyrich yesterday saw the completion of a task which has oecu pied his spare time for the past two tnreBlie(1 out twenty-one bushels per acre, and his oats made as high as Successful l'uiinlii);. Dr. J. H. Hall has demonstrated that seed selection Is one of the se crets of success In producing a large yield of all sorts of farm products. He hns eclipsed all of the farmers in his locality for yield per acre of wheat and oats. His Bprlng wheat LEAD DAILY REGISTER CHANGES HANDS W. C. Beufer, wife and son, Ken neth, came down from Lead last Thursday evening, the wife and son to visit with friends and "Ben" to hav farewell duck hunt. Mr. Benfer has sold his paper in Lead, the Daily Register, to his former city editor, J. E. Balllnger, and after a brief stay n this vicinity will take his family to Denver where he expects to again en ter the printing business as a hired man until such time as an opportun ity presents itself to purchase a plant In some of the adjoining towns of that city when he will branch out for himself again. He has had a strenu ous time In the management of the Register for the past five years, and particularly the last year, during which time he has been sleepless in attempting to keep the miners' union alive. In doing this, from principle, he has met all kinds of discourage ments, many of those who believed differently from Mr. Benfer doing ev erything possible to make life a bur den for him, going so far as to enter his office at night time and breaking up his machinery with sledge ham mers, and on other occasions sending rifle balls into hU office with the hope, presumably, of ."accidentally" knocking him off the Christmas tree. There has been many efforts to boy cott the paper, also, and all these ef forts combined has made life some thing of a burden. But Benfer al ways kept on hammer and tongs, and striking where he believed he waa right, and now, not because he Is afraid of those who are after htm, but because he believes that the pa per in new hands will accomplish the object for which he has been laboring, he turning the paper over to the pres ent owner, feeling that the change will prove beneficial to all concerned. Although it is believed Mr. Balllnger will keep the reputation of the Reg ister up to its usual standard, yet' Benfer'B trite sayings will be missed by the many readers of the paper. The Northwest Tost, with many other friends in this Immediate vicin ity, will wish him all kinds of success In his new borne. Hello Fourche, (S. D.) Northwest Post.
