Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Tropst returned
from Long Pine yesterday, where they
have been visiting for the past week.
Mrs. Propst has a sister living on a
ranch close to town, and they have not
had the chance to visit before in eight
years, nr.d it is needless to say that
it was a pleasure to both to have such
a splendid visit. R. L. reports every
thing looking fine, and everybody
seems to have plenty of money.
B. F. Wiles and wife came in this
morning from their farm home, south
of this city, and were passengers on
the early Burlintgon train for Omaha
to visit for the day, looking after
some matters of business.

. FORTY YEARS AGO.
Jerry Hartman has a very pretty
little house up on the avenue.
It is reported that Dr. Hamp ran
away with someone else's frow.
The old woman at the "foot of the
lot" was warned to leave last Tues
day. Our old friend, Doty, helped us over
the river not long since most man
fully. The Rev. Mr. Steinhart pi cached in
the M. E. church during Mr. Black
Monday morning broke in cool and
quiet at last. The great hot wave has
passed over, and we may hoxe for
some livable weather.
The livery men offer to furnish a
team apiece to put our streets in re
pair, if the council will only set them
to wcrk and fix the crossings.
Hon. John Chapman of the Nonpa
reil, Council Bluffs, U. S. marshal
western district of Iowa, and brother
of our Sam Chapman, is down to help
the boys hunt the festive prairie
A friend asks if Bro. Windham was
on the road to heaven when he
climbed that big peak? Yes, he always
is, we hope, and being a good moral
young man he don't have so far to
climb as rome of the rc.-t, maybe.
Jones tells us that Dan Johnson of
Weeping Water has one of the best
green colts that he (Jones) ever drew
a line over. Dan got it of a faimer.
perfectly untrained, and it showed a
three-minute gait the first time it was
ever put in a sulky.
Thirty Ohio editors, under charge of
Mr. Randall, went west yesterday.
They stopped here half an hour
tr.J were visited by the newspaper
men of this place and other citizens
pietty generally. It was the best we
could do on so short a stop.
Hatt and Pott were standing on
the bridge across Mair! street back to
the rail; a prominent lawyer sighted
across and states that there is not
one-sixteenth of an inch difference in
their rotundity, and Pott's theory is
that "bowels beats brains any day, if
jou have enough of 'em."
Judge Haines sends the Herald a
polite note, in which he thinks our r?
maiks last week about his being sick,
might be construed to mean that he
had imbibed too freely. We certainly
had no such intention; never saw th-j
judge drunk in our life. It was a joke
of the bovs about how he got sick.
The first engine ever wholly built in
Nebraska was finished at the B. & M.
shops in Plattsmouth lately, under
the direction of Master Mechanic
Hawksworth. She is called "The
Plattsmouth," and handles a heavy
freight train like an old stager. Hur
rah for the trans-Missouri manufac
tories. John Henry, a German, who had
been clerking in thu Platte Valley
House and otherwise employed about
town, was fatally sunstruck on Satur
day last. At noon he was in town;
at night he was dead. Deceased board
ed, or lived with Mr. Goos, and had
been making hay the clay before. The
funeral took place on Sunday.
We stated last week, among notices
of changes going en in our midst,
that Mr. White would remove his
store to the Fitzgerald block and his
old store building would be sold. Mr.
White having changed his plans, we
now announce that he has moved tem
porarily to Stadelmann's old stand
while his own is undergoing repairs,
when he will take up his quarters
If you want to really know just
about how many people there are in
and about Plattsmouth just start a
first-class circus. Yesterday the town
was full of people, of course they are
excusable, we know how it is ourself.
Now, we would never go to the circus
in the world, if it wasn't for our chil
dren; they want to see the animals
and we must go, you know, we
wouldn't deprive the poor children of
this pleasure for ths world.
C. J. Horning brought in a load of
corn and received credit on his sub
scription for the same.
Timothy Clark, ey-courity commis
sioner, made the Herald a pleasant
call the other clay and lightened up
cur load by a greenback or two.
Frank E. White of this place was
elected grand high priest of the Grand
Chapter of this state. Of the ap
pointed officers, the G. M. of the first
veil is H. E. Palmer, also of Plattsmouth.
Mrs. Mona Livingston, a red Irish
lady who boards with the doctor, has
a large increase in her family. No
less than eitrht, and the doctor thinks
they aie good for 25 apiece. Mona

Miss Anna Gyger is enjoying the
delightful climate of San Bernardino,
California, where the orange groves
are filled to overflowing with ripe
fruit and the ladies are carrying para
sols. Several degrees difference in
the atmosphere from Nebraska.
Cass county's luxurious place of
entertainment for her law-breakers
must be nearly even full these times.
One man for attempted poisoning of
his wife; another for murder; a third
for assaulting his wife, and four for
stealing. Eight in that building of
A living curiosity was to be seen
on our streets Saturday, in the shape
of an old-time tramp with a ball and
chain attached to his ankle, and a card
ou his '.jack with wire, with the in
scription, "A cauton to thieves and
tramps." They couldn't drive him
out of town, so they proposed to warn
certain other parties that are hang
ing around that they will receive the
i-aae attention if they fail to make
Charles Viall made his appearance
en the streets of Plattsmouth last
Monday, but was not allowed liberty
to perambulate them very long before
the sheriff quietly arrested him, on
the charge cf an attempt to poison his
wife last August. It seems that a
t ister of Mrs. Yiall's, Mrs. Michel, saw
Viall put a powder into a bottle of
liquor, and suspecting him of some
foul play, told his wife, warning her
not to drink any of it. Viall after
wards attempted to pursuade his wife
to drink some, which she refused to
do. During the trial of Viall at Lin
coln, for the murder of William Arm
strong, this bottle and contents were
given to Prof. Aughey to analyze, but
he had not found time to do so until
very recently, when it was found to
be full of poison, which fact he com
municated to Sheriff Hyers, who had
just written to Kansas to ascertain
the whereabouts of Viall, when he
made his appearance here. The trial
will be postponed a few days until
