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.
.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.
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.

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.

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.
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. The Lamphere family
has grown a number like these and
they are certainly very fine and as
good as they look.

Morgan on North Sixth street. This

Th Missouri Pacific station at
Mynard was visited by burglars on
Tuesday evening and as a result of
their nocturnal viittl in the rail-
mad company o'" 1 a; her the parties
whose freight va.'- in the depot are
short goods to t!e amount cf $100.
Entrance was secured to the depot,
by forcing open the clcor of the
freight aid from here the, operated throughout the
depot. The cash drawer was pried
cpen and badly jimmed up as the
visiters in their search were com
pelled to almost tear the drawer to
pices ami when it was opened
found that it was empty as the sta
tion atent had "removed all the
money on closing up the depot.
The property taken consisted of
freicht and express packages that
were in the office and the largest
loss was a set of storaee batteries
belonging to A. A. Wetenkamp and
valued al $93. while other smaller
articles stolen svydled the total of
the losses to ?1C.
The depot at !tiyu'arJ is closed al
5:00 p. m. and not reopened until
the next morning and it was not un
til the arrival of the station-agent
Wednesday morning that the fact
of the robbery was ascertained. The
visitors left no clues t'.iat might lea 1
to their identity and the only plaus
ible suposition is that it was the
work of some one who had an auto
mobile as the thffi of a storage bat
tery would indicate this rather Mian
that it vas tho work of someone who
had been beatirg their way alonsr
