MEHAWKA FLOURING MILLS
MAKING FINE FLOUR
From Tuesday's Daily.
The Nehawka flouring mills have
just been placed under the manage
ment of Mr. C. D. St. John, who will
in the future look after the supplying
of his patrons with the highest and
est grades of flour, and already the
demand for the "Letter Roll" biand
of wheat flour has become quite ex
tensive in Nehawka and vicinity, and
the brand is certain to increase in
popularity as it reaches the different
homes throughout the county. Mr.
St. John is one of the best men in the
county and is striving to make his
mill one of the best in the state and
to turn out a fine grade of flour. He
also has placed on the market Wheat
Hearts and Groham flour, and these
are being-given a cordial reception by
the general public. Mr. St. John will
be in Plattsmouth in a few days and
give our people the benefit of samp
ling his different brands of flour.
AN OLD SETTLER.
While attending the Old Settlers' re
union at Union last Saturday, we were
more than pleased to meet our old
friend, Uncle Ben Hoback, from near
Nehawka, who is truly one of the old
settlers of that locality. He is one of
the very few old settlers that are left
to mark the early days at this annual
celebration. He came with his par
ents to this section of the state in
the' early fifties, and settled near the
Cass and Otoe county line, where he
tias continuously made his home. On
account of poor health, Mr. Hobacik
TOade an effort to retire from active
farm work several - years ago and
moved to Nehawka, but later returned
to the farm. His health is still very
poorly, but no doubt there are times
when he makes an effort to do a day's
work on the farm. We trust that he
may be with us for many more an

VISITORS FOR HOME COMING.
Already the visitors for the Home
Coming festivities have begun to ar
rive in the city from all directions,
and every indication is that the crowd
present will be a record breaker in
every way, and it will tax the capacity
of the city to care for those who will
be present to enjoy the festivities.
However, the hospitable homes of the
city are being thrown open to the
visitors and almost every family has
prepared to entertain some of their
old friends on the hospitable occasion.
