By an unavoidable oversight
we omitted to mention in a pre
vious issue the presence among
us of Chaplain Wright's two
daughters, Mrs. Morrison and
Mrs. Buell, who have been here
making their parents a visit of
some weeks' duration. Mrs. Buell,
we believe, has returned to her
home in Missouri, and Mrs. Mor
rison will soon go to New York

wilh them pleasant remem

their many friends here will have
enjoyed their visit.
The grasshoppers are here in
Cass county. We rode to Louis
ville and found them as far east
as Cedar Creek. Further south a
gentleman informs us Eight Mile
Grove forms the dividing line.
East of that there are none; west
of that they are thick, thicker
but not thickest; at least not
nearly as thick as we have seen
them in Nebraska. The cloud of
grasshoppers this year is noth
ing in comparison with the great
grasshopper years of 1866-7.
They have done much damage,
but only in spots, as yet, and if
they only leave now we are safe
for half a crop of corn and over,
the county through.
The concert given last Friday
evening by Miss Ella Crocker, as
sisted by Miss Simpson, Mr. Skill
and others, was a success as far
as the singing, etc., went, but the
people did not succeed in turning
out lo hear it, very extensively.
We make some allowance for
sickness, which was very preval
ent then, but think that even de
spite that, our people ought to
turn out more largely, as they are
driving everything of the kind
from their midst by their lack of
patronage, and only a minstrel
show or a circus can succeed in
drawing a crowd.. Miss Crocker's
voice shows most decidedly the
effect of cultivation, and the
change since she left us nearly
two years ago is almost marvel
ous. With equal perseverance in
the future, as in the past, she
must, inevitably succeed in at
taining whatever goal she may
set herself. We heartily wish her
success. No testimonial is need
ed to the skill of Miss Simpson,
who has appeared before our
citizens several times previous to
this. Mr. Skill's management of
violin and piccolo is also well
known and appreciated. They did
themselves full justice on this
occasion. Lack of space prevents
in pi mm
our speaking of the program in j
detail, and all was so good we can
hardly discriminate in favor of!
any particular piece.

they rope an outsider in and

all Plattsmouth mails going or

homes and forced to run into
Omaha and stay there a largo

and ridiculous plan, all mails to

on a freight car, or at best, a
baggage car, and run up to the
junction at Oreapolis, without be
ing in charge of any mail agent.
Strictly speaking, no one is re
sponsible for those bags while on
transit. If they were robbed or
lost no person could be found to
answer for their safety. The
postmaster here would claim that
they had passed out of his hands;
the agents on the postal car,
never receiving them at all, could
not be held responsible, and wo
hardly think the railroad com

delivery of that mail, when not in

The contract, if we mistake not,
calls for the delivery of those
