From "Wednesday's Daily.
Yesterday afternoon Albert Godwin,
who has been officiating as the motor
cycle cop for the city, was given a
dose of his own medicine when Chief
of Police Barclay pulled him for ex
ceeding the speed limit while riding
on Vine street and while he was not
in the discharge of his duties, but
merely riding for his own amusement.
The young , man was located by the
chief out on Chicago avenue and
brought in for trial before Judge
Archer, who after learning the facts
in the case fined him $10 and ctsts,
which he paid and was then released
from the custody of the officers. This
is another example of the fair-minded
way in which . the speeding question
is handled in this city, and the authori
ties are seeing that everyone who
violates the law is compelled to toe
the mark and answer if they are

MR.1(AUBLE, A RES
IDENT OF PLATTS
MOUTH SINCE 1854
From Wednesdays Dally.
One of the early pioneers of Ne
braska,., is Frank N. Kauble. He
crossed the Missouri river at Nebraska
City, where he- located in 1853. He
came to Plattsmouth in 1854, crossing
the river in a flat boat. The Omaha
and Pawnee tribes of Indians were
still here. But the white people had
commenced to settle in the country.
In the year 1S5G, Mr. Kauble located
in Rock Bluffs. At that time it was
a thriving river town, and was looked
upon as the future county seat of
Cass county, and where the Burlington
railroad would cross the river. There
was a steam ferry boat plying the
river, run by James Spratlin, Sam
Latta being the engineer. Steamboats
were loading and unloading, and much
grain and meat was shipped down the
river from Rock Bluffs, Mr. Kauble
having seen as many as five steam
boats at the landing at one time. At
this time Rock Bluffs was larger than
Plattsmouth. The leading merchants
were Eithel and Doom and L. R. Box
ley; later on, Johnson and Spratlin.
George L. Seybold ran a drug store.
Mr." Kauble had the usual experiences
of the early pioneer.
Mr. Kauble is one of the many old
residents of this locality who will be
able to take part in the "Home Com
ing'' during the coming week and add
his store of experiences of pioneer
days to the many stories of early days
that will be made the order of the day
on Friday, September 1. There are
a great many of the oldest residents
of the state here in Cass county and
they will all be present if possible on
this notable occasion.

oats. The threshing outfit was ship

EAT A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING.
Perhaps the best system of living
is to take a little of everything
not too little or-yet too much omit
ting all those foods which experience
has shown to be harmful. Besides se
lecting the proper food it is also
necessary to prevent the accumula
tion in the body of poisonous matter.
This cleaning out process Trainer's
American Elixir of Bitted Wine will
do in a thorough manner. This rem
edy willt not tolerate any waste mat
ter in the body. It will relieve con
'stipation, weakness, nervousness, pov
erty of blood, and will increase -your
appetite. It will also strengthen the
digestive organs and make them able
(to, accept and digest enough nutritious
food. At druggists. Price $1.00. Jos.
