out. of trouble that occurred in
the Hinrichsen saloon Tuesday
evening, when, during the
absence of the proprietor of the
saloon the two men became in
volved in a controversary which
finally ended in a small - scrap.
There was much difference of
opinion among the bystanders as
to who started the trouble and
how it started and it will require
the argument of the case in court
to settle the question.

and Mrs. Henry Zuckweiler was
the scene of a very pleasant
gathering, when the members of
Mrs. I). C. Morgan's Sunday
school class met with their teach
er and their classmate, Dewey
Zuckweiler. The evening was one
filled with much enjoyment and
pleasure and was participated in
by everyone present with a view
of having the time of their lives,
and from all accounts they suc
ceeded. The young folks played
games of various kinds for sev
eral hours until the serving of
some delicious and tempting re
freshments, which the young
folks did ample justice to. Mrs.
Morgan was assisted in entertain
ing the members of the class and
their friends by Miss Catherine

When the editor of this paper
came to lMattsinouth, he is
obliged to confess that he enter
tained no extraordinary exalted
opinion of L). H. Wheeler. If the
fears and follies of the small beer
politicians of this town mav be
taken as a criterion. Mr. Wheeler
must be a great man. Is a rail
road move to be taken, Dan
wheeler is against it we must
fight him. Is a convention to be
held, Dan Wheeler is going to run
it, we must fight Wheeler. Is a
candidate to be selected, the first
question small beer asks is: is
Wheeler for him or against him?
If Wheeler is for him we must
kill him. "Astonishing" as Dom-
inee Sampson says. Instead of
asking if the candidate or dele-
ate is for Wheeler, they ask. is
Wheeler for him? That's wisdom.
By one single turn of the wrist
hng off his mouth, no matter how
foolishly, he seems to scare all
plattsmoulh. He can control the
governor, coerce all the state
board of agricultcre, run all the
county conventions, and curse any
man that
peaks to him or his
family, decentlv and civilv in
piattsmouth, it seems. Let's
make him king. What's the use

Such beautiful days as we havo
been having puts one in mind, of
the old-fashioned falls in Ne
braska. For two or three years
back we have had rough weather
early in the fall, and a very warm
spell in mid-winter, so far this
fall cold weather has given us a
long inning, but at last the cold,
blustering winds of December are
heard muttering in the distance
and blustry, bullying, threatening
old winter is shaking his ice-clad
fist under our October noses.
The Pleasant Itidge school.
The other day we had the pleas
ure of visiting this school, 'and
on entering the schoolroom, were
very agreeably struck with the
appearance of the interior. This
district is located about three
miles south of Piattsmouth and
if we are not mistaken, is known
as district No. 3. This district
comprises some of the oldest set-
lied farms and some of the best
farms and farmers in Cass coun
ty; among the latter we would
mention the name of Messrs.
lorning, Shepp, Weston, Living
stone, etc. The former, Messrs.
Horning and Shepp are the very
efficient Director and Treasurer
of the District Board. They have
recently exhibited their zeal in
the cause of education, at home,
by purchasing a full set" of
Mitchell's New Outline Maps, and
a twelve men rranklin & Joslin
Globe, for their district but
more of the maps and globe here
after. On entering Die school
room, we, of course, took a sur-
ey of the room, and noticed the
seats and desks, of modern style,
and selected with a view to com
fort, convenience, and with a fair
allowance of taste. The school
room is none too large, (in fact
a 1
we never saw one wnicn we
thought too large), yet it will seat
forty scholars very conveniently.
The ceiling is arched and high,
thus affording better ventilation.
This plan of constructing ceiling
we would commend to all dis
tricts about to erect school
houses. The walls of the school
room were adorned with the maps
recently purchased, among which
we noticed one of Oeorge F.
Crane's "Sectional Maps of Ne
braska." This latter is certainly
a novelty in the schoolrooms of
Cass counts. Who ever thought
of hanging a map of Nebraska on
the wall of a Nebraska school
room? Why is it not belter to
hang up a map of Asia, Europe,
Australia or some other more im
portant place? But Messrs. Horn
ing and Sheff members of a Cass
county district school board
seemed to think that it was just
as necessary for the youth to
learn the local geography of their
own state as to study that of
"Grand divisions, hemispheres,"
els. We most heartily commend
this example of Messrs. Horning
and Shepp, and trust that ere
long every school house in Cass
county will contain a map of Ne
braska. Mr. Sam C. Swearingen,
of Beaver county, Pa., lias charge
of this school, and under his
management, the school seems to
be progressing finely. During
our brief visit we made a few
notes, of which the following may
give some idea of the room and
school room work: House well
seated; the seats selected with a
view to the accommodation of
different ages and sizes, and of
modern construction; shelves on
both sides of door for hats, bon
nets, shawls, etc.; wall decorat
de with outline maps; fine large
globe on teacher's desk; black
board painted on wall of north
end, extending three-fourths of
distance across; windows arrang
ed with view to ventilation, by
letting upper sash down. Teach-1
er's manner, mild, pleasant and
dignified; classes called by lap
ping bell, and dismissed by same
method; scholars, respectful. ;
The hours of labor have been
reduced from ten hours to eight,
in the machine shops. Wagys
have been reduced accordingly.

The fireman's ball on Tuesday,
the 17lh, was a very handsome
affair. One hundred and twenty
three supper tickets were sold,
and the boys had a good time
generally. The net proceeds were
not so large as they should have
been, but small gains thankfully
accepted. We should have no
ticed it last week, and did write
it up, but it was crowded out
One dav last week we took
jaunt out on the prairie! After all
there is nothing like the op'ii
prairie for a good clear draught
of pure air. Once out on the
road, away from the town and
you get it. How many times the
old freighters thanked Heaven
when they were fairly out of Un
winding, torturous ways of the
town, and struck the broad, open
expanse toward the plains. The
country along the divide in sight
of the Platte is very beautiful in
deed, at that distance the old
Platte valley looks like a decent
river and sparkles and glimmers
in and out among the trees, and
through its many islands, like a
thing of life and beauty, instead
of a dark old bed of shifting sand.
But we set out to tell you of tht
country, and not the river. Ip
and down we go, down and up un
til a high point is reached south
of Cedar Creek, and in sight of
the city of the same name. From
this point a number of miles of
the Platte bottom can be viewed,
as well as some of the finest por
tions of Sarpy county. The coun
try sloping to the east and south
and shaded by the light of lh
setting sun, looks like fair land
indeed. Looking to the east, two
trees loom up in plain view, which
grow in the cemetery grounds of
Piattsmouth, so we arc in sight
of home still. Down the long
gentle slope and we are in th
broad valley of the Platte, and
pull up at Mr. Schlegel's place.
The "Mooles" have done well, and
daylight enough still remains to
walk up and down Turkey creek,
look at the big wheat, and see the
pigs of all ages, sizes, shapes and
colors. By the way, the wheat
fields on each side of the road go
ing out have been a wonder; that
of Mr. N. Holmes, or Ilolmis as
hisjcrman friends call him be
ing one of the finest. The next
morning we go up to Cedar Creek
mills, owned by Christian. Sch
luntz. This mill is a very fine
one, new, staunch and with a
most excellent water power. West
of the mill Mr. Schluntz has I he
best and fattening-est hog pas
ture wo have seen, covered with
hazel brush and trees, the first of
which the hogs are fast cleaning
out, interspersed with creeks and
No. i watering places, where 500
porcine beauties can enjoy their
otium cum dini-tatu this hot
weather. In the yard we saw a
pleasant sight some quite large
chestnut trees growing finely. It
put us in mind of schoolboy days
long gone and frolics now forgot.
Returning east we stopped at Mr.
Inhelder's, where the hospitable
host and hostess insisted on our
staying to dinner. As an extra
inducement somebody went down
callar and came up with some
dark liquid in a plass, one boy
was set to grinding the coffee in
an old-fashioned mill secured to
the stairway and Mrs. Inhelder
says "hurry, hurry." No mortal
could withstand such temptation,
and our horses were put out,
while we sat down to an old
fashioned farmers' dinner. The
situation and view from the house
is very eastern and homelike,
looking from the window the dark
green foliage of a grove of trees
makes one think of anything but
a land that is scare of timber, ami
in fact Cass county neer need
raise that cry. There is timber
enough now and growing to fur
nish all for many a year to come.
After dinner home to Main street
and the llerald office once more.
