Travis Endorsed by All.
Judge H. D. Travis certainly
seems lo be a very popular man
and also a judge. He had no op
position in his own party or on
the republican ticket, and, accord
ing lo the primary election re
turns from this and Cass county,
he secured a sullicient number of
votes lo place his name on all of
the tickets, that is republican,
democratic, socialist, prohibition
and populist. He received a hand
some vole at the hands of all
parlies, which is indeed a deserv
ed compliment. Judge Travis has
served the people well and faith
fully during the lime he has
been judge and his re-election is
an assured fact. Nebraska City

. LOG ROLL
There Was a Large Attendance
and a Genuine Good Time
The M. W. A. celebration at
Nebawka last Saturday was a
grand success in every particular.
w ing to Hie pressure of business
the Journal was unable lo send a
'reporter. Saturday is the worst
day in the week for any of us lo
gel away, but we b arn from those
who were present from Platts
inoulh thai there was an attend
ance estimated all the way from
2, 000 o :,0(Mt. and that every
thing passed oil' in a most credit
While the camp here did not
attend in a body, there was quite
a number in at tendance from this
city, but not as many as should
have been present. The day was
an ideal one for such a gathering,
and those from (his city who were
there say it was the greatest
celebration of the Modern Wood
men ever held in Cass county and
one that reflects great credit up
on the citizens of Nehawka.
The celebration was held in
Sheldon's grove, a most beautiful
spot for such a gathering, and
where the people could enjoy
themselves under the shade of the
spreading oaks and where the
various races and sports of
various kinds could be enjoyed
with great pleasure, and where
the people could enjoy the en
chanting music of the celebrated
Nebraska City band.
lion. N. C. Pratt of Omaha was
the orator of the day, and his
excellent address was listened to
with marked attention. There was
plenty of amusements and every
one seenied lo enjoy Hie event to
the fullest extent, and went home
in the evening feeling "that it was
g( od to be t here."
The good people of Nchavvka
are to be congratulated upon the
great success of this event. It
was nothing more, however, than
was expected of those who kno
the capacity of those who have
such mailers in charge. As the
Journal has often said, Nehawka
citizens never do anything by the
half, and the Cass County Log
Rolling association made tut mis
take in locating their annual
celebration at that place.

The Biggest Watermelon.

the largest watermelon that
believe was every raised in Cass
county. Tuesday afternoon our
good friend, Oliver (iilson, entered
the Journal olllce carrvinif a
melon thai weighed 52 pounds,
which he presented u us, and it
made us all open our eves in sur
prise at its mammoth sbe. Mr.
(iilson is living on the Edm'-rton
place nearly opposite the (troche
niour island, and has raised som
very line melons, but this is the
largest one, we believe, that has
been grown in Cass county, ami
shall contend that Mr. (iilson is
entitled to Hie championship, un
less someone comes in with a
larger one. We haven't opened
the whopper yet, and will not do
so for a few days in order to give
those who desire an opportunity
to see it. Thanks, Mr. (Iilson,
and may you live to raise many
more just like Ibis one.
