CELEBRATES 52ND BIRTHDAY.
From Wednesday" Dally
Yesterday Edward C. Ripple, the
Fifth street grocer, celebrated his
F2nd birthday, having been born in
Plattsmouth December 6. 1869. He
has lived in Cass county during all
but nine of these 52 years, having re
sided at Nebraska City three years
and in Oklahoma fix years.
During his earlier life Mr. Ripple
attended the high school here, being
a student in the old central building
at the time it was wrecked by the
earthquake and in the rush to get
out. fell and was trampeled by the
other children, sustaining a severe
face cut on the edge cf a scraper. Mr.
Ripple was born near the pumping
station of the water compans', which
was at that time the location of a
flourishing brewery long since passed
out of existence.
Mr. Ripple would like to meet all
those who were born in Plattsmouth
in 1869 or prior thereto, and will
stand treat to all those claiming such
distinction to the amount of 25 cents
worth of anything in his store, if
they will but call.
Now let all those who assisted in
digging the Missouri river please step
forward and claim the distinction.
Despite the fact of it being his
birthday, Mr. Rippl spent the day
quietly at his home in the west part
of the city, sawing wood, while his
good wife looked after the business
at the store.
Get in the clear for the bad weather, for
it will come. We have a fine assortment
and prices are right on overshoes.
Two buckle, three buckle, four buckle,
and for ladies, men and children.
