PLATTSMOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY JOURNAL.
TTTTT TT Ft
FORTY YEARS AGO.
Mrs. William L. Wells and family
are in town on a visit and will stay
about a week. Rush is "backing" it.
Lightning struck a pair of horses
near Muller's ranch, belonging to Mr.
Dimmot. and killed a fine Norman
stallion and blooded mare.
Mr. Montgomery's little shop, next
to Dovey's store, seems to flourish
and thrive like a green bay shop. He
keeps nice vegetables.
Mr. Ferree brought the Herald
i ome of the finest and earliest peaches
of the season. Mr. F. has them for
sale and they are beauties.
Sheriff Hyers had plenty of work
Friday. The cases piled up on him,
but he wiggled through and fixed his
men in spite of the hot weather.
Elam Parmele has got a new team
of trotters for the Herald's especial
driving. They are beauties and came
from Missouri with other mules.
The eclipse on Monday was witness
ed from High School Hill by the great
hody of Plattsmouth scientists. Prof.
MacDonagh was there and Prof.Drum
mond, to say nothing of lesser lights
such as Dr. Editor Lawyer. The
first contact was at 13 minutes past 3,
locfil time, and the greatest obscura
tion at 5 minutes past4. The follow
ing is one of the briefest descriptions
of the track of the eclipse and we re
publish: "This cone of shadow which
caused the total part of the eclipse
strikes horizontally upon the earth's
surface at a point in Siberia at sun
rise on July 20, local date. It travels
northeasterly to about the 180th de
gree of longtitude."
Poor Dan Rice! It will be remem
bered that some days ago Dan Rice
was here with his circus boat, the
"Damsel," en route up the river to all
prominent Missouri river points be
tween Omaha and Bismark. He was
intending to cross from Bismark into
the Black Hills, where he hoped to
strike a bigger bonanza than even the
Wheeler Brothers did on their placer
claim in Deadwood Gulch. The circus
showed . in "Tekamah, - Burt county,
Tuesday, and the boat started that
night for Decatur, the circus company
lemaining in Tekamah over night
Just as Dan was leaving overland with
his show team for Decatur yesterday
morning a messenger came into Te
kamah with the news that the Damsel
sunk Tuesday night between the two
towns. Nearly all the property on the
boat was taken off before she went
under. The Damsel was owned by Mr.
Rice, and was valued at about $20,000.
We are mighty sorry for Dan. If we
had as much money as Vanderbilt, we
knight give him a steamboat just for
fun, and to keep the old fellow's

Without appetite or without regular
digestion there is no nutrition. A
emedy which excites appetite, stimu
lates digestion and regulates evacua

for example, Triner's American

which fulfills all those conditions. It
is made of red wine which in itself is
nutritive. It will stimulate the di
gestive organs to work and will give
them enough strength to perform
their work, without any great exer

In addition to discussing the en
gineering details of construction, the
bulletin already mentioned calls at
tention to the fact that ordinarily
from one-third to one-half of the total
cost of constructing a concrete pave
ment is for labor after the materials
are delivered. This emphasizes the
importance of efficient organization
and proper equipment. Failure to take
these; factors into consideration f re
qtfeitly 'results, it is 'said,' in adding
from 10 to 20 per cent to the cost of
a concrete pavement.
The most economical method is to
have the work of mixing and placing
the concrete as nearly continuous as
practicable. The work should be
planned with a primary view of keep
ing the mixer going full time. The
