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. PLEASANT GATHERING AT THE ZOCKWIELER HOME From Friday's Daily. - Last evening the home of Mr. 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 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 Schrack and Mrs. Zuckweiler.

Mayor Kleutsch, of Lincoln, and Frank Guthman, of IMatts- mouth, dropped into the Herald sanctum last week. (Had to hear of you gentlemen if we were not tew home" ourselves. 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 nf standing on ceremony? We nominate D. II. Wheeler for presi- dent in 187(5. Say. let's make it emperor, and be done with it. Death has not only all seas ons for nis own, nut an ranKs . i.i.- of society are iiiii i ii inn inii.i alike ruthlessly invaded by his presence. lot aione does nc welcome to his cold embrace the aged and infirm, but he touches with his poisoned wand the bloom of infancy and childhood, and it fades forever away. No; not forever. Christ has tri umphed over death, and the dead shall rise again to bloom in youth and beauty immortal, be yond the skies. Mary, youngest daughter of George and Mary Pronger. who but a few days ago, with hor naronls an.1 school- ,,., hHf hpantifnl. inno- cenl c'hii(1 of but ten years of nro i,a rmi from them now. On the afternoon of the Gth inst., she was taken (we believe) with congestive chills. No fears were entertained for tier safety until about 0 o'clock p. in. of the fol lowing Tuesday, when all at once she complained of her head; ask ing her father to put his hand upon it and try to relieve her pain Saying at tbe same time: "Papa, I am going to die." The sudden death of one so young", so ami able, so interesting and beauti ful, ttias brought a dark cloud of sorrow upon the home of which she was the light and hope, and cast a shade of sadness over both the Sabbath schools, of which she was a member and in which she was much very much be loved. Her remains were follow- , 1 1. - i , eu to me ceiueiery by a large . . . . number of Her sclioolinates ana friends of tne ramny, on -inurs- orial service was held at the m E- church, of which both par- ents are meillDerS. iUUICsses v inutiam, J.

Otis Hone is married so says the Burt county paper to 3Iiss Harrington. Now th&t's curious we always wondered what made Otis go up there so much in days gone by. Mr. C. Schluntz will open, with the new year, a new business in Piattsmouth, being a Flour De pot, with which he will combine Provisions and Groceries. ' It will be opened about' the first of February, at the old R. R. Bak ery Fred Stadelman's old store remember the place. Dr. Wintersteen makes an ap peal to our citizens in regard to their taxes that should be attend ed to at once. It will not do for the city to allow its credit to de preciale in this manner, and we add our feeble appeal to the doc tor's authorized one, hoping somebody will pay up their taxes and let our city dads have some money once more. Step up to the captain's office and settle. 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. This is in preference to dis charging one-llfth of their force entirely, , iriTfj Our old friend and comrade downstairs, Luke Miskella, leaves this week for Arapahoe, on the Republican. We wish Luke all the good luck in the world, and hope he may build up a fortune and a name in the big blue coun try, second to no man who helps settle up the "Great West." Henry Dubois, one of the first men who has tried and been suc cessful in raising blooded horses in Nebraska, paid the Herald a visit on Friday. His famous stal lions, Henry Clay and Hambleton ian, each took a premium for which they were entered at the county fair. 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 somehow. One dav last week we took a 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.
