CR0WDS GOOD EVERY DAY
Many folks have remarked at the
large crowds that have attended the
Korn Karnival this year every af
ternoon and evening. Usually in a
celebration of this long duration
there is at least one day when at

beginning with ..Wednesday night,

Weather conditions have been ideal
for the staging of a show of this
type (although rain is badly needed
and would be welcomed at any time
by farmers and business men alike).
The temperature has also been all
that could be asked for neither too
hot nor too cold.
When the curtain Is lowered on
the 1939 show, it is safe to say at
least a fourth more people have seen
it than any of its predecessors. Not
a bad record, and a new high mark

The fame of this show has spread
to great distances and visitors have
been here from as far away as 200

that the 1939 karnival has been a
most successful show, with its big

attendance and interest.

forward to the ninth annual show
of next year and begin laying plans
to make it even more outstanding

Exhibit is Very
Papers, Documents and Pictures Tell
Story of the Early Days
- Largest Yet Shown.
The attendants at the King Korn
Karnival who have failed to visit
the historical exhibit in the Jour
nal building, are missing something
of real value, a glimpse into the old
time history of Cass county which
is shown in pictures and documents
that have been gathered by the
descendants of the first settlers of
this part of the west.
One Interesting object is a sale
bill of the firm cf Patterson & Wal
ker at Rock Bluffs of the date of
1SG2 and which announces the ar
rival of a great stock of goods from
the New York market. This firm was
composed of James A. Walker and
James M. Patterson, who were later
among the most prominent residents
of the county.
The historic pictures and docu
ments of Rock Bluffs, then a thriving
Missouri river settlement, is very
targe and from the pictures one can
well realize the sturdy and strong
type of men and women that help
make the west.
The George Mann collection of
early day pictures of the Burling
ton shops and their employees and
scenes of the early day Plattsmouth
are most . interesting. In the shop
pictures Mayor Lushinsky, Val Bur
kel. Joe Libershal appear as ap
prentice boys in the shops while the
veterans of their trades appear with
the long whiskers which were then
the fashionable mode for the men.
Ox yokes, letters and other things
that touch the early day life are
to be found in this fine collection.

BOXING SEMI-FINAIS GOOD
Plattsmouth boxing fans are get
ting plenty of their favorite sport
during the King Korn Karnival. On
Thursday night they witnessed three
hot battles, one of them , an even
affair and the other two winding up
with a verdict in favor of the two
lads who had a slight margin of
victory. , . . ( , ...

good, with the Judges picking win
ners in each of the three bouts.
Verdon Keil, one of the battlers in
Thursday evening's even break bout,
was supposed to be on hand last
night and tangle with his opponent
of the night before, Willard Tigner,
but failed to put in his appearance.
so the alternate. Warren Allbee was
substituted. Allbee gave Tigner a
stiff battle, but caught one of Wil-
lard's rights on the chin and Hopped
to the canvas for a nine count. All
bee came back strong, but his fur
ious attack was met by an equally
furious return and Tigner won and
will be one of the contestants to
night. Another fine battle (while it last
ed) was staged by Don McBride and
enough, but didn't have the know
ledge of the manley art or the ex
perience that McBride has had, so
after a slam-ban g first round in
which Starr was lloored for a near
finish count just as the gong sound

tory. The final bout of the evening was
between Kenneth Cottlngham and
Gene Lester. This was' a lively scrap,
with both boys trying to land a
finisher every minute of the three
2-mir.ute rounds. Gene Lester proved
to be a little more durable than Cot
Hngham and was awarded the, ver
dict, spotting him as one of the pair
to mix in tonight's final event for
the grand prize given the 'tourney

Mrs. W. A. Wells, who has been
here for some time visiting at the
home of her brother, John Alwln and

Copy of an Old
Time Sale Bill
Family Leaving; for Oregon Territory
Advertises Possessions, Includ
ing Slaves Back in '49
Ninety years ago last March 1, at
Versailles, Kentucky, there was held
a public sale of property which for
those days was quite well advertised.
Copies of that crudely printed sale
bill have appeared from time to time
hi newspapers over the nation. Some
ot them, yellow with age, lead per
sons viewing them to believe they
might be an original, but this is not
the case. Frequently, however, these
copies are 35. 40 and more years
old. It is one of these that was ex
hibited with the historical display at
the Korn Karnival last week, being
the property of Mrs. Hattie Fiddler,
who has had this particular clipping
for a period of 33 years or more. Be
cause of interest In the things offer
ed, the Journal is reprinting this
sale announcement and perhaps, a
score or so years from now, one of
these clippings, yellow with age, may
be palmed off on the unwary as the
one and true "original." To the ex
perienced printer, however, this
would be impossible, since the form
of type dress changes- materially even
in the course of a few years, to say
nothing of the ninety years that have
elapsed since this original bill wa
distributed, printed, as it must have
been from the crudest of type and
with the crudest of equipment.
The nearest thing to old time
printing we have seen is an original
bill announcing a Rock Bluff store,
which hung in the window at the
historical display here. It was print
ed in New York City, as few, if any
mid-western printers in those days of
the late fifties '."had equipment for
the turning out of 6uch a piece of
work. ' .
As stated, because of the nature of
its contents, and not because of any
claim to it being an original, we
publish below the contents of that
much publicized sale bill:
Having sold 'my farm and am
leaving for "Oregon Territory." by

A Bookworm Turns Locksmith
Necessity made Lee an incessant
reader, for moriey was scarce arid old
j newspapers were plentiful. Thought
lessness made him a housebreaker
when the man downstairs became
ongry at a trifle and ceased giving
,him the papers.
Skilfully Lee fashioned a skeleton
key with which he entered the locked
apartment below and took the old
periodicals. The irate occupant, re
turning home and finding nothing
else touched, but the papers gone,
called Lee a burglar and persisted in
bis demands that the youth be sen
tenced to the industrial school.
Lee was five years old when his
father died; eleven when his moth
er passed away. During the parents'
lifetime they had purchased a small
two-story dwelling. At the mother's
death, her insurance was barely
enough to pay off the mortgage, the
expenses of her last illness and her

Bhe and Lee moved to the second
floor of the modest residence and let

Flower Show is
Bright Spot of
Eeautiful Display of Flowers and
Shadow Boxes Make Very Inter
esting Spot fcr Visitors.
Flower - and garden lovers were
about the only group not amazed this
year, when the annual King Korr.
Karnival flower show more than lived
upAo its expectations this year. Con
sidering the unfavorable weather
that hindered the growth and beauty
of floral bouquets. the entries were
enormous andilha quality outstand
ing. Variety of cut:flowers was num
erous and not one particular variety
dominated the ethers at the exhibits.
Among the many exhibits on dis
play at the Elks building on North
Sixth street is the shadow boxes that
have grown so popular in the last
few years among the flower show ex
hibitors. Among the shadow box ex
hibits was one submitted by Mrs.
Wm. Schmidtmann, Jr.. and Mrs.
Carl Ofe. The theme of their shadow
box was "Courtship Under the Oaks."
Another exhibited the grave of the
unknown soldier, an exhibit that is
J almost in reality with the present
European crisis still continuing.
The Plattsmouth Garden club, who
really deserve the credit for making
these flower shows possible In Platts
mouth, have a very unique and pic
turesque display of a model garden
or one most viewers would call "A
Model Back Yard."
Along with the hundreds of Cut
flowers asters of all colors, zinnias,
roses, cockscomb, and many others
was seen a large number of fernery
and greenery exhibits, as well as
rotted plants of all kinds. Frank
Karva nek's cactus display is also one
of the important exhibits. Mrs.
George Thun's entry to the show was
a cotton exhibit; the cotton was
grown in Cass county.
The Junior Department of which
Mrs. Wm. Schmidtmann, Jr. is chair
man, was also represented at ine
rhow. The entire second floor of the
building Is devoted to the younger
gardeners of Cass county. Tea tables.

Butter and lard
Farmers and Dairymen Suffer from
a Dwindling Consumption of
These Two Commodities.
For years the Journal has advo
cated the use of Nebraska products
by Nebraska ns. This policy was often
stressed by the late publisher, Mr.
R. A. Bates who was opposed to the
use of substitutes from far-away mar
kets to the detriment of our home
producer and outspoken in his con
demnation of such practices.
Yet, despite all that has been said
in the press and otherwise, there haM
been a growing tendency to disre
gard the appeal and accept substi
tutes. So pronounced har, this been
that in the past fifteen years, for
instance, the consumption of veget
able oils and compounds has pnto-'
tically doubled in the United States.'
The two heaviest losers have been
laid and butter, respectively. Both
of these products are produced in the
middle west and their processing
brings much revenue to the farmers
who raise hogs and dairy cattle.
The income of these livestock pro
ducers in Nebraska alone could be
increased in the neighborhood of two
million dollars or more, it is esti
mated, through an improving de
mand for genuine butter and lard
and a refusal -of the housewives to
accept the so-called substitutes.
The Plattsmouth Creamery in its
advertisements appearing in the
Semi-Weekly has advised our read
ers that every pound of butter and
lard substitutes they buy helps to re
duce by just that much the revenue
cf our Nebraska farmers and dairy
men. During the past week, Wilson
& Co., enc of the large packing firms.
ha3 sponsored a similar message to
our readers. In an advertising effort
to re-popularize lard and make it
preferred to the manufactured sub
stitutes (many of them made from
fcreign raw materials) this firm set
about to produce a lard of such su
perior quality and place it in such
a convenient ecstainer that house
wives of today, like their mothers
end grandmothers, will prefer it to
the tlock of substitutes.
Included In this program has been
the giving of free introductory pound
pacSages of the?r new Nebraska-made
product to. housewives. .- t
This battle to lift larJ a,nd butter
out of the "dog-house" of public ne
glect and into the kitchen and on
the table, where they rightfully be
long, is a most interesting one and
upon its success hinges many dollars
of Increased revenue to our mid
western producers that have been
