FOR SURE THERE ARE FINE
PEACHES IN CASS COUNTY
From Wednesday's Tal!v.
Those who do not behove that Ne
braska is some peach country should
call and pare into the show window
of the Journal, where Harry Smith
has on display two of the biggest and
finest-looking peaches that can be
found anywhere in the whole country,
even in the heart of the great peach
prowinp section. These peaches are
grown on a tree at the farm of Mr.
Smith rear the poor farm and are of
the celebrated "Champion" variety,
and their very appearance is enough
to make the mouth cf the lover of this
lucious fruit vater and Mr. Smith can
certainly claim the prize for peaches
in Nebraska this year. lie will have
these peaches on exhibit at the state
fair as showing what Nebraska can
do when she tries.
Three Groves Ed. Herald: I think
at the Three Groves' Reporter has
pone back on the Letter Box somehow
or other, or the readers of the Herald
will nrobablv think so bv his not
writing rcpularly, so I thought that a
few lines from this part would cheer
them up once more. Last Thursday
evening the people of this neighbor
hood and vicinity had a grand festi
val at the brick school hou?3 for the
purpose of raising funds to be do
rated to the Rev. Hull of this circuit.
By the kindness of friends I was in
vited to attend, and of course went.
Arriving at the school house pretty
early we had a chance to note all the
proceedings. First thing of any im
portance to be noticed was the com
mittee; they were busy preparing the
tables and emptying out the well-fill-rd
basket which had previously ar
rive!, and spreading their contents
'hereon. From the locks of the pood
eatables that were placed before us,
such as pies, cakes, chickens, turkeys,
oysers. peacr.es and other thinps too
nume-ous to mention, we s.hould judge
that the people of this place were not
t-fasshoppe? ed very mad last year,
and always have plenty to eat. After
supp-;" war over an hour was spent in
auctioning off a few large handsome
cakes, which sold to the hiphest bid
der, brinpinp a neat sum, and the pur
chaser beinp none the worse off. By
this time the postoffice was opened,
Mr. Isaac Corea action as posimaster;
it was very interesting for the younp
ladies and pontlemen to receive letters
from their sweethearts by paying 10
cents postage, and then find nothing
;n them only a blank sheet of paper
or pretty near it. The attendance was
not as large as expected on account
of bad roads, rainy and disagreeable
weather. Receipts of the evening
were announced at S30.60, which, af
ter expenses are paid, will be present
ed to Mr. Hull for his future wants.
Durell, the man who was taken to
the asylum from South Bend last year
and afterward released to visit with
friends, was returned from Maine on
Saturday worse than ever. It took
two men to hold him and his hands
were lacerated fearfully.
An unknown party attempted to
pain an entrance into 3Ir. Fitzperald's
house last Tuesday night, but Mrs.
Fitzgerald being awakened by the
barking of the dops, asked who was
there, and finally called Uncle Denny,
when the man took his leave, going
down Vine street.
One train on the C. B. & Q. had 345
passengers bound for Nebraska, and
the other eastern roads are bringing
them in equally fast. It wont be
"meuless lands" long at that rate.
The telegraph dispatches announce
the appointment of Hon. W. F. Robb
of Otoe county as United States col
lector of revenue for Nebraska, in
p'ace of II. A. Newman, removed.
J. W. Barnes and George Fairfield
are busy assessing the town and this
part of the county, nowadaj's. They
make a pood team for the business
and we think will make as fair assess
ment as we have had lately.

ADVANTAGES OF THE
PARCELS POST GROW
ING RIGHT ALONG
The advantages of the parcel post
as a medium of shipping packages
has been growing constantly in
popularity and the postoffice depart
ment at Washington is constantly ad
ding to the facilities of the system by
increasing the size and weight of the
packages that can pass through the
mail, and the latest advantage to be
added is that of an insurance for the
different mail matter that is included
in the parcel post regulations. The
postoffice department has made the
