If all reports and signs prove true,
it really looks now as though the
new Government road was going to
run through Murray on the first plat
ted road and known as the high line,
with the exceptions of a few minor
changes. According .to the latest re
ports the road will run west from
Murray to Murdock. then to Elm wood
and on to Eagle, and just south of
Eagle will strike the O street road
into Lincoln. This was the report
sent to Murray Tuesday by Mr. Searie
Davis, who has been one of the most
ardent workers for the Murray route,
and who has been in the capital for
several days in the interests of the
road. There were some thirty-five
men in the delegation that went to
Lincoln last Wednesday to meet with
the committee, they being from Mur
ray and along the line west. Numer
ous convincing arguments were put
up in favor of the present line, and
in fact many of those more interest
ed in the southern route were com
pelled to admit that the center-of-
t he-county line was for the best in
terests of all of Cass county. The
three commissioners are strongly in
favor of the center route, and real
ly it looks now as though this would
be the one that will be finally chos
en. The road that will benefit the
greatest number of taxpayers and ac
commodate the greatest number of
people in the county is the one that
should receive the preference, and
that road is certainly the one thru
the center of the county.

SHOWING SPRING GOODS
Fiom Vuesday's Daily.
The Ladies Toggery is advertising
advance showing of spring suits and
coats this week and invites all the
ladies of Plattsmouth and vicinity to
call and inspect the late styles in
spring wear. A shipment of the
popular capes that will be so much
in vogue this season arrived last
week, but the stock has been badly
depleted by heavy buying on the
part of Plattsmouth women and a
second shipment is now on the way.
The Toggery keeps a most up-to-date
stock of merchandise at all times and
the styles they are exhibiting are
fitting criterions of what will be
worn by fashionably gowned women
in t he east this year.
