There might have been a chance
for some one to sell our good
friend, James flaincy, of Union,
an automobile a few weeks' ago,
but that opportunity has all been
shattered now. Mr. Hainey and
Mr. Nichols of Union were mak
ing a trip through the eastern
part of East. Hock DIufTs precinst
Tuesday. They were over in near
Hock DIufTs when something got
wrong with the feeding apparatus
of the big buzz wagon and they
were unable to administer a rem
edy. They worked for several
hours without finding the injured
spot, and finally telephoned to
Plattsmouth for Ed Darker. They
were laved up' about fourteen
hours all told before Mr. Darker
arrived. Mr. Darker was no!, long
in gelling the machine lo go, but
too long for Mr. Hainey to become
the owner of au auto real soon.

with people, besides all that came
in other conveyances, making over
100 in attendance. Those coming
from the north met at I he home
of W. D. Virgin and thosefrom
the south at O.-V. Virgin's, and at
the hour to move on all started
and met at the Spangler home to
gether. People were there from
Elniwood, Plattsmouth and
numerous other places of the
county. Ice cream and cake were
served and the gathering was held
in the nature of a porch party,
