The Omaha World-Herald of Sun
day has a very interesting story of
the old Methodist church at Kock
IHuii:-, which is as follows:
"The corner stone of the old Metho
dist church of Rock Bluffs in eastern
Cass county was opened August 21,
after being sealed for forty-six years,
and documents of historical value
The church, a substantial stone and
brick, 20x 10, was one of the best con
structed buildings in this thriving
little river town at that time. From
the time of its construction to the
time of its destruction, it has weath
ered many hardships erected in 1870,
taken by the mortgagee in 1883, later
sold to a farmer, who used it as a hay
barn, and while filled with alfalfa
from the pews to the belfry, was de
stroyed by fire within the last year.
The building is being wrecked by Alex
Giaves of Murray, whose father, Will
iam CI raves, and uncle, Eben Graves,
manufactured the brick and did the
brick work on the church two years
later. He will use the brick to con
struct a dwelling in Murray.
"The contents of the corner stone
had been placed in the cavity chiseled
out of the limestone and had been
plastered over with mortar. They
were in a bad state of preservation.
Its Interesting Contents.
"Those things found in the corner
stone were: A statement of the dedi
cation, the minutes of the tenth con
ference of the Methodist Episcopal
church, a book of Discipline, New
Testament, a copy of the Central
Christian Advocate, published at St.
Louis, dated September 7, 1870.
"A sheet of common writing paper
gave the following information re
garding the dedication:
" 'Methodist Episcopal church, Sep
tember 15, 1870. -W. Gidding, P. E.,
Lincoln district, Nebraska conference.
Dedicated with appropriate ceremo
nies September 15, 1870. Present And
associate members. The Rev. H. 11.
Maxfield, the Rev. L. W. Smith, the
Rev. II. I Mann, the Rev. Brother
Murphin of Portsmouth, ()., ami the
Rev. Brother Lemming.'
"The Rev. Mr. Lemming was pas
tor of the church at the time of dedi
cation. '"On the opposite page was given
the names of the building committee,
all well known pioneers of this part
of the country: 'Henry Polen, Mandy
(not legible), Moses Hiatt (now
84 and a resilient of Murray), John
Stafford, Sampson Carncs, Thomas
Mann, II. Craig and Mary Polen Tay
lor.' "Mr. Moses Hiatt was chairman of
the building committee, class leader
and superintendent of the Sunday
school at that time. Mr. Hiatt, in
looking over the records he helped
deposit in the corner stone a half cen
tury ago, dreamily remarked, "People
don't live now like they did then no
time for enjoyment all in a hurry.'
"The book of Discipline, and New
Testament were returned to Mrs. Will
iam Taylor, Plattsmouth, as she had
given them to the dedication services.
"The minutes of the tenth Nebraska
conference held at Fremont, March
31, to April 2, 1870, gives in detail the
transactions of each day. They were
published by 'The Republican Steam
Printing House and Book Bindery,
"The copy of the 'Central Christian
Advocate' of September 7, 1870, pub
lished in St. Louis, while forty-six
years old, is quite modern as it re
ports extensively war news (Franco
Prussian) and the influence of the
war on food stuffs. The medical
charatan advertised much bolder than
he does in this age. There are no
illustrations and Mutt and Jeff could
not be found.
War News, Too.
"The pioneers in Nebraska read the
following war news in September,
" 'Minister Motley telegraphed the
news to Washhigton, and adds that
King William will assign a residence
to Napoleon. Count de Palikoa and
the council of ministers of Paris is
sued the following proclamation to
the French people: "A great misfor
tune has come upon the country. Af
ter three days of heroic struggles,
sustained by the army of Marshal
McMahon against 300,000 of the en
emy, 40,000 men have been made pris
oners. This cruel reverse will not
shake our courage. Paris is today in
a complete state .of defense. The
milifnrv forces of the country will
organi'e in a few days. A new army
will be under the walls of Pari; an
other army is forming on the banks of
ilm Tviip. The emneror has 'been
made a prisoner."
"Under the caption, "Grain and Pro
duce Prices Current" the following is
"'St. Louis, Mb., Saturday, Sept. 3,
1S70. The overwhelming defeat of
the French army under McMahon and
the surrender of Napoleon have caused
gold to fall considerably, and raised
the (juestion as to what will be the
future prices for bread-stuffs and pro
visions If peace is shortly con
cluded, prices will advance for a time,
on opening the blockade ports, until
the waste of war is in a measure sup
plied by our imports.'
' This is followed by a very com
plete list of all commodities on the
maiket at that time. Flour is quoted
at o" pei- barrel, live cattle per
hundred, sugar 11 cents per pound,
deer skins, summer, 23, and winter,
18 cents per pound. American gold is
quoted at 113, and lead at 7 cents per
Omaha in 1870.
