From Thursday's Dally.
Early tliis morning the flood wat
ers of the IMatte, traveling from the
far west made their appearance and
at the Flufte river bridge of the(
Burlington north of the city, a three (
foot raise 'was registered in a very:
few moments as the volume of water
began to sweep in from the west-.
ward. The Missouri river has also
been up in the Mages of a June raise
during the past week and a three
foot raise in this stream is noted.
The raise was not continuous
however as the Platte has remained
practically stationary following the
first raise and it is not thought there
will be any marked change until to
night when a larger volume of high
water is looked for from the west,
as the crest of the flood seems to
have reached Fremont ami at points
west of there the stream is dropping
Points along the Platte west
Fremont report that the river has
overflowed the lowlands to some ex
tent but the conditions have not
yet caused any serious damage to
the residents of the low country.
Just how much the high water in
the .Missouri will affect the water in
the Platte is not known, and it may
he possible that it will have a ten
dency to form a large body of back
water at the mouth that will flood
over the low lands, hut it is not ex
pected t li.iit will reach a very dan
gerous i t ago.
The highest stages of the Platte
in recent years was in 1012 when
tlje whole Platte bottom was flooded
north of this city, clear to the fringe
of hills ami the trackage of the Tur
lington and Missouri Pacific railroads
washed out while the roads to the
wagon bridge stood under several
feet of water with a forty mile an
hour current flowing along the south
side f the bridges. The loss in that
year reached thousands of dollars,
but nothing like that is anticipated
this season as the force of the flood
is spending itself on the eastward
flow and seems to have passed the
danger point from Fremont on east.
Score is One Sided but Reports State
Special Features Added to
Interest to Contest.
The settlement around Rock Bluffs
claim that this year they have a
real base ball team and as proof are
pointing to the score of the game on
lust Sunday, when they defeated Sci
ota by the score of 20 to 2. For the
Rock P.lufl'ers Glen Campbell and
Vern Hutchison were the battery!
and Surface and Hathaway did the
pitching and catching for the south
ern Cass county team.
There were some 500 persons in
attendance at the battle and the
partisanship ran high with both
sides cheering for their team and
this aforesaid cheering and enthusi
asm led to one of the most exciting
incidents of the game. In the sev
enth inning play wa ceased in order
to witness a hair pulling prelimi
nary between two of the lady base
ball fans who were engaged in
boosting for rival teams and whose'
enthusiasm and spirit led to heated
words ami this to clinches and sun
dry and divers chunks of hair were
soon riving in the air. Residents of
Rock Rluff state that the finals ini
tilt fi'iit tiiillinir . i will 1'
oimi fuiiiiih iwjnrni v 1 1 I lie
staged next Sunday when the p.lufl'
ers will play the Omaha P. U. Stars.
Refreshments will be on the ground
for the crowd it is also announced.
The game last Sunday was the
eighth game won by Rock P. tiffs
and the third to be won from Sciota
and the members of the team and
their followers feel mighty proud
over the event.
John Richardson, who appreciated
a favor in the assistance of getting
a better road which was given last
fall. In a matter of showing his ap
preciation for tho means afforded of
assisting people to come to Platts
mouth. he will on the next bargain
day. give a free crossing of the river
to all who come from Iowa to trade.
This, will mean coming and return
ing as well. Ho will issue a check
when the person comes over and he
knows, everybody living on the other
side, and when they have returned
the check, with the endorsement of
a merchant from whom they have
purchased goods. This will "bo for
the next bargain day. but those fol
lowing, will be for half the rates.
Mr. Richardson especially wishes it
known that he is working in behalf
of the city and that he is not un
mindful of the kindness of those who
helped in the matter of the road to
the ferry.

From Tht csday's laily.
ifsteruay afternoon the ladies of
t the St. Luke's guild were very plea-
rantly entertained at the home of
.Mrs. Ceorge A. Dodfe on South
Eighth street and a pleasing number
of the ladies were present. The at"
ternoon was spent in sewing and

enjoyment of the pleasant hospitality
of the hostesx was mm h appreciated

Business Men of City Participating
in Community Sale State the
Event Was Big Success
From Thursday's I tall v.
The general sentiment of the busi
ness men of the city on the commun
al Ity sales held yesterday in I'latts-
I mouth is that it was an uniualilicd
success in every way and one that
! pleased the shoppers as well as the
business houses that participated in
the array of special offerings.
While the merchants did not rea
ls 1 .. .... t 11
uit;!- lii.ll mil oil ;iilIIIIIlg stUU,
ana in many cases merely broke even
lor lost money on their special bar
j gains, they were able to move stock
!at quick cash sales which netted
(them rapid returns and saved carry
ting goods for a long period, and this
j is very satisfactory even with a far
, less margin of profit.
Another of the reasons that gave
the people such exceptional oppor
tunities was the fact that there was
t no unnecessary attempt made to at-
tract the public to the sale. No
amusements were secured as the mer
chants felt that the public in gen
eral would prefer that the money
that must of necessity be spent in
staging anything along the amuse
ment or entertainment line would be
better applied in giving the persons
'buying the goods a little closer mar
gin so that instead of being enter
'taiued the shoppers secured many
fine money saving bargains at all of
the stores.
The next sale will be held on Wed
nesday, July 20th. and the merchants
of the city are already planning on
even greater offerings for the buying
public and which will emphasize the
fact that Plattsmouth is the logical
market town of this portion of the

Puis Stop to Pleasures of a
Vacation in the Open.
In the heated period the call of
the great outdoors is heard by many
and the common tendency of all is
to take their tents and hie them
selves to the nearest stream or shaded
spot and make a camp. This call
was heard by two young men of this
city last week and they accordingly
departed for the vicinity of Cedar
Creek to make a camp where they
might enjoy a week or two of rest
and pleasure in fishing and commun
ing with nature in the great open
spaces, but after a few dax,s stay
there the camp life began to tell on
the two young men who longed for
the sound of feminine voices and
the pleasures of the society of the
The continued exiles from the cir
cles of feminine society led to the
two young men conceiving the bril
liant idea of. inviting two of their
lady friends to join the party and no
sooner was the idea born than it
was carried into execution and the
ladies called upon had agreed to the
plan. This was highly satisfactory
to all concerned but not to persons
who secured inkling of the condition
of affairs at the camp and-the matter
was finally sent to the county author
ities who began inquiry with the re
sult that the camp, which was con
ducted in a manner that would have
delighted the heart of Omar, the phil
osopher, was visited yesterday by
Sheriff Quinton and the pleasures
rudely stopped.
The two young men were notified
to appear before County Attorney
Cole and the last chapter of the story
was told in the county court where
they were fined $10 and costs each
this morning on the charges prefer
red against them.

Program of Celebration cn July 4,
1891, Shewn Patriotic Spirit
That Was Evidenced Here
There has in the last few years
been little or no effort to celebrate
the occasion of the birthday of the
nation in this city, and the Fourth of
July has been practically a nill fea
ture as far as way of observance is
concerned and the residents of the
city have sought their celebration
in other places over the state.
This fact has recalled to many
of the older residents the celebra
tions, that were formerly held here
and Hon. R. li. Windham presented
to tho Journal office a copy of the
program of July 4. 1S91. to show the
the marked difference Let ween the
present manner of observing the day
and that of the past. Many of those
taking part in the program are still
occupying a prominent place in the

No Signs of Damage Here.
From Friday's Dally.
The flood danger in the Platte
river does, not seem to l developing
as iho reports yesterday and this
mornign indicate that the river is
now stationary as far as the raise
three feet Wednesday night and fal
len fifteen inches and has since re
mained at a standstill.
The threatened high water which
had been reported as coming this way
for the past week, has caused. a great
deal of apprehension to the residents
cf the low lands mrth and east of
this city and especially to those who
have just put in their corn crop, but
it looks as though the threatened
high water was to pass us by. The
force of tlie Plate Hood has spent it
self in the eastward journey and has
done but little damage east of Cen

in the western portion of the state
a great deal of damage was done to
property and especially bridges in
that part of the state.
