COULD NOT WALK
And For Four Years, Could Not
Stand Without Support.
Chillicothe, Ohio "Nothing pleases
me more than to speak a word of
praise for Cardui, the woman's tonic,"
says Mrs. Ed Davis, o this town,
"for I firmly believe that it snatched
me from the grave.
I have been married 14 years, and
had two children. After the youngest
was born, I was not able to walk, and
for four years, I was not strong enough
to stand on my feet five minutes at
the time, without something to support
Nothing seemed to do me any good,
until, finally, I commenced using
Cardui, the woman's tonic. I only used
about four bottles, but, today I am
well, can do my work, and walk as far
as I want to.
I can never praise Cardui enough,
and my neighbors cannot get done
wondering at the change in me." '
Ycu, too, can depend on Cardui, be
cause Cardui is a gentle, harmless,
vegetable tonic, that can do you noth
ing but good.
Prepared from vegetable herbs, Car
dui has a specific effect on the woman
ly constitution, and tuts strength
where it is needed.

A CANDIDATE FOR
THE STATE INDUS
TRIAL SCHOOL AGAIN
From Wednesday's Dally.
Sheriff Quinton has as his guest at
the county jail a young man named
John Peterson, who was released only
last March from the Industrial schoo
at Kearney, and whose desire for fire
arms was the result of his downfall.
The lad, who is a little past 15 years
of age, was sent up from the county
to the State Industrial school, and on
his release returned to Nehawka, and
during the last few months has been
engaged in working at the orchard of
Hon. E. M. ToUaid. The lad decided
that he would come to Plattsmouth
and, as a start, he proceeded to lift
a revolver belonging to a friend, to
gc-ther with a large stock of ammu
nition, and then started for the county
seat. All went well until John reached
Union, when the fact of his having
the revolver on his person was re
vealed in a most startling manner
He was carrying the gun in one of
the side pockets of his trousers and
could not resist fingering the weapon
occasionally, and finally his pressure
on the trigger grew too strong and
the weapon was discharged, with the
result that the whole front of one
trouser leg was ripped open from the
bullet, which glanced off the sidewalk
but fortunately did no damage. The
young man with his gun then pro
ceeded on to Plattsmouth, but while
he was on the train G. P. Barton of
Union telephoned to the sheriff, and
when Jchn arrived here he was taken
over to the county jail to rest and re
main until the authorities of the In
dustrial school could be heard from
as to what should be done with the
boy, as he, is only out on parole from
the Kearney school.
ANOTHER EARLY PIO
NEER OF CASS COUNTY
From Wednesdays Daily.
Henry Eikenbury was one of the
eariy comers to Cass county, having
ar; ived here on May 15th, 1856. For
a time he was employed on various
farms in the vicinity of Plattsmouth,
but took up a claim, as was customary
at that time. He states that Platts
mouth had not to exceed 100 inhab
itants. There was a great deal of
trouble in the jumping of claims,
which finally resulted in the putting
of the Johnsons and the Kelleys into
the Missouri river, at least that is
what was supposed to have been done,
as nothing was ever heard of then:
after the night that they were siid
to have been put into boats which
rowed out to the middle of the river.
What was known as a Claim club
had been organized by the early set
tlers to protect themselves against the
Johnsons and others of the kind.
Horse thieves were quite common in
the early history of Cass county, and
at one time two were taken and hung
in the vicinity of Eight Mile Grove;
this detered further aggression along
this line. He remembers Wheatley
Mickelwait as being mayor of Platts
mouth when he came here. He also
mentions Samuel Maxwell, T. M.
Marquet, Judge Clark and Joe Brown
as among the lawyers of that time,
Joe Brown having the distinction of
being the first lawyer who located in
Plattsmouth, and was the first clerk j
