SHARP COMPANY SENDS MACHINERY TO WIDELY SEPARATED SECTIONS SHIPMENT OF BUTTER CUTTERS Recently Made One Goes to Crete, One to Columbus, Ohio and One to Buffalo, N. Y. From Friday" Pally. The L. C. Sharp Manufacturing Co., of this city, has been a great advertising medium for Plattsmouth in the past and are still busily cn gagvd in turning out their lines of special machinery that are sent over the I'nited States and even to for eign countries:, advertising the fact that the town of Plattsmouth U still on the map. This firm has just completed and sent out three patented butter cut ting machines, which weigh one to:i each and which were sent to Crete. Nebraska. Columbus. Ohio and Buffa lo. New York. The machines are made to cut butter that is frozen and are used in the large creamery companies" butter making plants, as they are the latest and most prac tical of the butter cutting machines that have been placed on the mar ket. The demand for machinery of this type has kept the plant hero very busy and a large number of orders are ahead awaiting the filling by the Sharp company . A greater part of the people have little realization of the importance of this concern to the city, but a visit there will convince the most skeptical that the Sharp plant is one of the busiest places in the city, and a large number of high class ma chinists and foundryinen are em ployed there in looking after the work of turning out the orders for special types of machinery required in manufacturing lines. The plant could easily use a larger capacity as the orders are constantly rolling in an it keeps the employes very busy turning out the different machines that are required by the large manufactures of the east. Mr. Sharp, in his plant, adds materially to the prosperity of the city and it is pleasing to see that the excellent work of his plant is recognised by the large manufactur ers in getting their machinery turn ed out in the Plattsmouth plant. POSTOFFICE A BUSY PLACE .From Friday" Dally. The postolHc1 in this city is quite a busy place as this office has been designated as the central accounting office for the county and through the local oflice must be handled all requi sitions for the postoffices over the county numbering some rixteen. This plan relieves the postofnee department at Washington of a great deal of work, but adds to the labors of the offices operating as central accounting offices. The supplies of war savings stamps and other postal supplies must come through the cen tral office and this requires a great deal of accounting and book work. PAYS FUNERAL BENEFIT From Friday's Dally. The committee of the local Red men lodge has just received the pay ment of the funeral benefit of th late Adolph Wesch, which was car ried through this order. The local tribes of the order, instead of carry ing the risk direct have it protected by "the Western Funeral Benefit as sociation, of St. .Louis, and this or ganization, as soon as the claim was presented, at once remitted the sum due, which amount is sufficient to cover the expenses of the funeral. HORSES FOR SALE. Team geldings 4 and 6 years old, wt. 2S00 lbs. found. ' Team mares 5 and 7 years old, wt. 2400 lbs. sound. A. O. AULT, 29-4!w Cedar Creek, Nebr. CORN BEYOND FROST DAMAGE IS THE REPORT WEATHER MAN SUPPLIES SUM MARY OF WEEKLY CROP CONDITIONS. WINTER WHEAT BEING SOWN Light Frost Occurred Early in Week in Western Counties Soil in Fine Shape for Plowing. From Friday's Pally. In his weekly summary of crop conditions. Section Director Loveland says Jack Frost will be powerless to hurt Nebraska's corn crop this year The past week was mostly clear and pleasant. with nearly normal temperature, except that Saturday night, Sunday and Monday local showers occurred iu eastern coun ties. The temperature averaged two degrees above normal in the south eastern counties and two degree be low normal in the norther. In most northern and western counties the rainfall was light, less than half an inch. But in most southeastern counties the rainfall ranged from one to three inches. 1 Threshiig and haying are still in progress in norinern anu western counties with favorable weather con ditions. Corn has matured beyond danger of frost. 'Light frost occur red earlv in the week in western counties, but without damage. The soil is in excellent condition for plowing and seeding in the great er portion of the state, but in some localities more rain would be bene ficial. Considerable winter wheat was sown the past week. Early sown wheat is up with a good stand. WHY NOT FREE RECORDING? From Friday's Dally. The United States government, as well as the Red Cross are very anx ious to have the discharge papers 01 the former soldier, sailor and ma rine registered in the counties in which they reside and during the visit of the repre'sentative of the Red Cross here it was discovered that a fe of 95 cents is required by the register of deeds for this record ing in Cass county. A large number of the counties have adopted the policy of recording ihe.-e instruments without charging any fee whatever and it seems that this would be the proper policy to adopt here. Tne register of deeds explained to the representative of the Red Cross that it was the in structions received from the county commissioners that this fee should be charged for the recording. The loss of discharge papers oc curs quite often and the registra tion of them at the court house will safeguard the former service man in case he should have need of proof of his discharge later and for this reason the government is very desir ious that they may be recorded. SOME POTATOES From Prrday's Daily. Mrs. George Lamphere brought to the Journal office a specimen of one of the sweet potatoes grown in their garden that surely is some potato as the potato weighs 2 pounds and is one of the finest we have seen this season.
