BOND OF M. FORD FOR NEW PAVING
Firm of McMaken & Son of ThU Get Sub-Contract for Curbing
and the Matter Will Soon Be Under Way.
ST. MARY'S GUILD MEETS
From Wednesday's Dally.
At a special meeting of the city
council last night, the bond of M.
Ford and the contract was approved
by the council. All of the council
men were present except Mr. Will of
the third ward.
M. Ford was represented at the
meeting by C. F. Harkness and the
bond of the contractor for $16,
000 executed by Roily ,E. Jackson
with the power of attorney attached
authorizing Mr. Jackson to execute
the bond. ' The surety on the bond is
the "Bankers Surety company" of
Cleveland, Ohio. The bond is con
ditioned for the faithful perform
ance of the contract and the furnish
ing of all labor and material.
The contract specifies that the
brick pavement shall be laid on a
sub base of cement and sand. The
cement base is to be four inches in
thickness, over this will be two inch
es of sand for a cushion on which
- the brick will be laid. The brick
paving in on Sixth street is laid on a
sub base of brick lying flat and cov
ered with sand, but the cement base
is much better and gives better serv
ice and will out wear the brick sub
The curb will be put in by McMak
en & Son who have the sub contract
for this part of the work. The curb
will be of cement and are to be twen
ty Inches deep and four inches wide.
There are 4657 feet of curb, and the
work on the curb will be commenced
The cement curb will be run Into
the forms on either side of the street
and the whole of this work will prob
ably occupy a week. As soon as the
curbs are in M. Ford will be on hand
with a force of men and teams to
grade the dirt from the streets pre
paratory to putting down the sub
base for the sand and brick. Four
cars of cement for the sub base have
already arrived and are being un
loaded at the Burlington yards. The
hauling is all done by McMaken &
Son. The M. Ford people are ready
to put their force in as soon as the
curbing is in. And if the good weath
er prevails for a short time the good
citizens of Plattsmouth will soon have
the satisfaction of walking on the
new paving in the third district.
The ladles of the St. Mary's Guild
of the St. Luke's church met at the
pleasant home of Mrs. L. A. Moore in
the west part of the city yesterday
afternoon and following the regular
business session'whUh was held dur
ing the early part of the afternoon,
enjoyed a most delightful time. So
cial conversation and varlouu amuse
ments were Indulged in, which made
the time pass all too rapidly. At
the proper time a dainty luncheon
was served by the honest, os
s sled by her daughter, Mm. Stiv
ers of Grant, Neb. This luncheon
was served out on the lawn which
surrounds the Moore home and like
wise all the more thoroughly enjoy
ed. There were a large number of
the ladies in attendance.
BIDS FOR THE NEW POST
OFFICE BUILDING OPENED
Washington, Sept 19. Bids were
opened today at the treasury depart
ment for the construction of the pub
lic buildings at Plattsmouth, Neb.
The bidders were as follows: General
Conrtruction company of Milwaukee,

King Lumber company, Charlottsvll
le, Va., $49,000. State Journal.
It will be noticed that the lowest
bid in the above list is $47,700, this
would only leave $2,300 of the ap
propriation for the purpose of pro
curing the fixtures, which Is not be
lieved would be sufficient. It has
been the tenor of the correspond
ence on the subject of the building
here, that the wish of the committee
in charge, to get the building placed
on the grounds for $46,000, leaving
the remainder of the appropriation
or $4,000 for the fixtures.
It is not believed that there will
be further delay, however, and that
either fixtures of a lower price will
be procured or an additional small
appropriation be secured.

Julius Pits was called to Council
Bluff3 in a hurry this morning to
get some repairs for his thresher
separator. Mr. Pitts started up to
thresh this morning and had run but
about ten minutes when something
gave way on the separator, causing
the force to stop until repairs can be
gotten from the Bluffs.
Remedies are Needed
Were we perfect, which we are not, medicines would
not often be needed. But since our systems have be
come weakened, impaired and broken down through
indiscretions which have done on from the early ages,
through countless generations, remedies art needed to
aid Nature in correcting our inherited and otherwise
acquired weaknesses. To reach the seat of stomach
weakness and consequent digestive troubles, there is
nothing so good as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery, a glyceno compound, extracted from native medio
inal roots sold for over forty years with great satisfaction to all users. For
Weak Stomach, Biliousness, Liver Complaint, Pain in the Stomach after eating,
Heartburn, Had Breath, Belching of food, Chronic Diarrhea and other Intestinal
Derangements, tlm Discovery is a time-proven and most efficient remedy.

R. W. CLEMENT APPOINT
ED BURLINGTON AGENT
Division Superintendent Flynn of
the Burlington of Omaha was in the
city yesterday and appointed Mr.
William Clement agent at the station
here to succeed W. L. Pickett, de
ceased. A more popular appoint
ment could not have been made. And
a man better equipped to fill the po
sition could not be found in the serv
ice. Mr. Clement was born in this
city and when a boy went Into the
service of the company as a mess
enger, soon learning to operate the
telegraph, and has been the day op
erator at this station for a number of
years. He is conversant with every
phase of the railway business, and
the promotion to agent at Platts
mouth, conies to him well merited.
There was no reason assigned for
their decision, not one of them made
a speech explaining his vote, and the
disappointed Plattsmouth citizens and
members of the commercial club who
had anticipated a ride to the coun
try over a no hill road had their
hopes shattered by the negative ac
tion of the county board. The reso
lution was called up on their return
and passed around the table in the
commissioner's room, and each com
missioner promptly and with dis
patch signed his name to a negative
The board had a pleasant ride, go
ing out to view the road In Dr. Cum
mins' touring Ford, which seemed to
have no difficulty in climbing the
hills between here and Rock niuffs.
This may have been a mistake on the
part of the commercial club in allow
ing the board to go so comfortably.
If they could have, been in some
other sort of a machine, which had
laid down on the hills, and allowed
the commissioners a chance to climb
a hill or two on foot, the vote might
have been different.
It Is up to the commercial club now
to make the road. Joe McMaken or
Walter White or some other practi
cal dirt handler should be taken out
to Inspect the route and make an
estimate of the cost of the road. The
project has hardly had a fair shov
to be put through, no member of the
club has been present with the com
missioners to urge the practicability
of the level road, and the matter
should not be allowed to stop with
the present effort.
If the matter Is properly brought
to the attention of the board at some
later time, and the cost figured bo
that there would be some basis to do
the work on, the road may be had

"Two and one half years ago my back

to void them caused me much annoy

that would bring me any permanent

Pierce Company Gives Splendid
Production at the Parmele
One of the best plays that nas
been held at the Parmele In a long
time was "The Squaw Man" last
night. Those who have read the
book say it was played to perfection.
Edwin Westfield as James Wynne
gate, and afterwards known as Jim
Carson, was simply grand in both
these characters. Miss Kathryn Van
Esse as Lady Diana was good. Like
all such plays, that open up in Old
England and end in the wilds of
America, create a great interest from
start to finish, and there is always
one character that captures the sym
pathy of the audience and it stays
with that character through the en
tire play. Edwin Westfield was the
character in this case, and his ap
pearance on the stage denoted a true
specimen of young manhood. He
was a fine actor, and as "The Squaw
Man" done nobly. Ills support was
good in every particular and the audi
ence was well pleased. The Journal
can say without fear of contradic
tion that "The Squaw Man" was one
of the most interesting plays ever
prosecuted at the Parmele.

amount to get the iron works re

It can readily be understood why
the proprietor is anxious to remove
from that location when one reflects
that this engine was loaded at the
factory on the 12th Inst, and re
