The Severe Cold Weather Has
Handicapped the Committee In
The committee appointed by the
Commercial club to solicit sub
scriptions for the Y. M. C. A. has
been greatly handicapped for the
past thirty days. First the holi
day season, and then came the
past twenty days of unprecedent
ed cold weather, making it im
practical to attempt further can
vass until warmer weather
brought relief. It is now hoped
that better weather will prevail,
and the committee has decided to
commence Monday, January 22,
for a w hirlw ind campaign of a few
days at most, to complete the
subscriptions necessary to as
sure the undertaking and com
mence the work of remodeling the
hall, so that at an early date the
Y. M. C. A. of Plattsmouth will be
a reality and actively engaged, in
its great work.
In this connection the com
mittee desires lo acknowledge the
irenerous help tendered by the
Plallsnioulh Ladies' Minstrels in
their entertainment, to be given
for the benefit of the Y. M. C. A
on Thursday night, January 24,
at the Parinele, and earnestly
solicit the public to meet the
spirit evidenced by lliis enter
tainment by a generous patronage
in the purchase of tickets and at
Miss Mathilda Yallery, early in
the campaign, tendered her time

help of a number of Plattsmouth
young people, and during the

an operetta entitled me Merry
Milkmaids." More particular

Lincoln, Jan. 22. The compilation
of the physical valuation of JScurasKu

thoae returned by the conipunieB Oi
tne reproduc tion value of tne proper i;
and tnose of Engineer Hurd muue lor
the state, giving his estimate ot the re
production valuation, and the amount
the property is carried lor on tue as
sessment i oils, are taken.
Engineer Hurd has another set ot
figures giving what he deems the pres
ent value oi the property, but the rail
road company Insists that whelhei
partly worn or not ail Its property is
In service and for that reason it Is
worth to the company as much as new.
According to the figures of Mr. Hurd
the present value ranges from 75.6 per
cent of that of new In the case of tue
St. .Joseph and Grand Island to 89 6
per cent of new In the case of the
Union Pacific, with an average for all
the roi'ds of 85.GC per cent.
As the assessed valuation is In
cluded, the estimated value of the
franchises of the companies, which Is
not the case with tho valuations re
turned by the companies or made by
Mr. Hard, these two being simply thu
value of the physical property.
In the ease of every road in the
ylate, except the Oiiha and St. Jo
seph and Grand Island, the company's
anil also Mr. Hind's estimates of the
physical value is greater than the as
cessment, franchise value included.
One partial explanation of this Is that
in the case of the Omaha, the Sioux
City bridge property Is Included In
the assessment and not In the com
pany's or the state engineer's valua
tion of the road's property, that being
lloted separately. The bridge prop
erty Is valued at 800 000. Following
is the comparative statement:

SMITHERS GOT A BUMP.
The Minister's Comment When
Htard How It Happened.
Within one nilivite of stepping out of
the taxleab In Mont of his home Mr.
Sniltbers received two separate nud
distinct shocks. The first was the size
of the bill, and the second was the re
sult of his argument with the chauf
feur. Mr. Smlthers used such lan
guage to the chauffeur before he paid
the bill that the taxi man could not re
sist the temptation to swat Mr. Smlth
ers Just once before departing.
On either side of Mr. Snilthers lived
a gentleman of the cloth, and on'e dur
leg the fracas with the chauffeur Mr,
Smlthers thought he heard some one
spring n shade hi the bouse next door,
but before he had time to turn and see
who It was the chauffeur landed with
that swat. When Mr. Snilthers regain
ed his feet the only thing present
which had not been there before was
a lump rapidly rising In tho center of
bis classic brow.
Next evening at a banquet he met
his good neighbor on the esst. the Rev.
Mr. Havens, who greeted blra cordial
ly, but eyed his lump.
