We visited Rock Bluffs this
week, and foiind our royal friends
J. ami H. Shera, selling goods
and working away like beavers.
Among" other curiosities Ihey
have two stuffed pelican?, and
Mr. Henry shot five at one shot.
The little room lined with brack
east of the store, is filled wilh
curiosities, and pleased Mike
Murphy most. Here we met Mr.
Hierbower of Nebraska City, Mr.
I'atlerson, of this place, A I -.
Jones, late candidate far sheriff,
and a host of Cass county polit
ical men. There must, be some
thing extrtni.ly fascinating about,
Rock Hluffs, and a peculiar
strength in the votes cast thee.-,
to warrant so much election
eering in t hah direct ion.
Farly in May of 187 5, Lieut.
C.reely, tf the Signal OlVice at
Washington, passed down the
Missouri river searching" for
facts and authorities for fixing
upon a danger line which, if
reached, or exceeded by the rjs
ing wafers, damaged or imperiled
property in the vicinity.
For Plattsiuoutli lie fixed upon
17 feel 7 inches, as indicated by
the river guago at the foot of
Main street, as endangering
farms on Ihe Iowa side of the
river. e have as yet had no
test of the correctness of this
line as Ihe highest point reached
y the river since, were on April
Sfh, t875, la feet . inches; on
June 28th, 13 feet, i inches; each
lacking- better than 3 feet of
reaching said line.
But. another interest uncon
sidered by us while Lieut. (Jree-
ly was here, has suffered consid
erable damage with the water
from 1 1 to 13 feet. This is the
R. R. embankments; as at the
east end of the Omaha bridges,
the S. W. R. R. between Omaha
and Beiview, and the transfer
landings of the B. & M. R. R. at
In view of the wide-spread de
vastation and destruction, from
floods now prevailing; I have
been directed by the chief sig
nal officer of the U. S. army to
publish the points (as above) at
which danger may be appre
hended and thus guarded against.
Wilh the river now down to six
feet and falling there is, of course
no present danger.

Building Being Fixed Up Fine.
The appearance of the brick
building of J. C. Petersen on
lower Main street is being im
proved considerably by the use
of paint and it now looks as fine
and fresh as a new building". Dark
red is used on the hnck and be
ing trimmed with a facing of
white which makes a striking ap
pearance. The work is being did
by Frank Ciobelman and his force
of workmen and if adds very much
to the appearance of that part of
town. Mr. Petersen has determin
ed to put his building in good
shape for the winter by having it
fixed up in proper shape. This is
one of the best buildings on Main
street and its improvement will
be the source of greaf pleasure to
all the residents and business men
in the business part of the cily.
