been completed, but two coaches will
probably be secured for the early
morning train at 7:15 returning in
the evening. A low rate of fare will
be made and everybody invited to
go, and a large number of parents
will no doubt accompany the children
and enjoy a day's outing. The pro
gramme of the exercises of the day
will include a number of games and
sports between members of the two
schools. The fact that fishinsr is re

probably induce a number of the des
ciples of Walton to go along and cast

DRINK A NICE
BROWN S PHARMACY.
A Wise Suggestion.
If the Cass county agricultural so
ciety had any get up in it, the $G00 of
fered for the best county display at the
staie fair might easily come our way.
County exhibits to compete for premi
ums must be made in the name of the
county society. Hence the necessity
for Plattsmouth to take the initiative
step in this matter. Weeping Water
Mr. Cade Rogers, of Plattsmouth, a
brother of our townsman, M. W., was
over Saturday looking over the scenes
of his childhood. He says he went up
to the old place, now the Record farm,
and looked it over and tried to climb a
big elm which be scaled forty-three
years ago. As he is quite lame he dia
not get to the top. He says forty-three
years ago, with a yoke of oxen, he
broke the road through to where the
Williams fruit farm now. is. It was
then a thick grove of hazel brush. The
change from then to now, with the
fine fruit farms in a high state of culti
vation, is great, but he recognizes the
old land marks. Mr. Rogers has a nice
home in the vicinity of Plattsmouth,
where he lives comfortably, but he has
a hankering to end his days where his
boyhood was passed, and we would not
be surprised to see him again some
time in the Bear future a resident of
our city. Glenwood Opinion.

The reported damage to the beet
crop in and around Norfolk on account
of frost has been greatly exaggerated.
The damage is but slight and there is
plenty of seed on band to replace any
of the plants which may be injured.
It is the opinion of many farmers that
warm weather and sunshine will bring
them out all right without replanting

alimony due the plaintiff in the di

$500. It is understood that the de

Judge Chapman entered a decree of
divorce Monday in the suit of Thos. J.
Keckler vs. Eliza Keckler. The defend
ant, however, was allotted the custody
of the infant child and in addition was
allowed alimony in the sum of $100.
Judge Chapman has entered a decree
n the plaintiff's favor in the di
vorce suit of Stewart vs. Stewart, the
testimony having been submitted yes
terday. The question of alimony will
be decided later.
Districtcourt was adjourned Monday
morning until June 18, and in the
meantime Judge Chapman will jour
ney to O'Neill to sit at the trial of
Barrett Scott, Holt county's default
ing treasurer. He will depart I burs
day, and will be accompanied by his
reporter, Tom Chapman, who will
keep official tab on the proceedings.
Judge Chapman did not go to Holt
county today to try the Barrett-Scott
embezzlement case, as was anticipated.
The case has been indefinitely con
tinued. COuNTY COURT.
An effort was being made today to
secure the release of Andrew Fator on

Judge Ramsey will fix the bail bond.
B. A. Gibson vs. Chas. Philpot, a
suit on a promissory note for $235 for
the purchase of some Weeping Water
lots, was occupying the attention of a
jury in county court Monday. The de
fendant is hardly to be blamed for re
sisting the payment of a note given
for the purchase of such undesirable
stuff as Weeping Water lots.
Albert Welton vs. Samuel Atkinson,
a suit on account for some $300, was
on trial in county court Friday before
a jury of six. The parties to the suit
live near Greenwood. A rather pecul
iar fact in connection with the suit is
that the plaintiff, although a man sev
enty-five years of age, is possessed of a
marvelous memory and keeps a set of
books for his farming business which
would do much credit to a merchant
for their correctness. The jury re
turned t. verdict in favor of plaintiff
for $16C. The amount sued for was

The Omaha World-Herald lately has
been endeavoring to make it appear
that stone taken from the well-known
quarries in this county will disinte
grate after a few years, and altogether
is a poor article. The object of the
W-H's complaint is that the commis
sioners of Douglas county have ar
ranged to use Cass county stone in
laying the new macadam roads in
Douglas county, and the W-H. urges
that the necessary stone be imported
from another state. As a matter of
fact Cass county stone is by all odds
the very best in Nebraska, and a
Plattsmouth citizen who knows where
of he speaks, has written the follow
ing to the Bee requesting its publica
tion, which tells some facts as to the
"In reading the Omaha World-Herald
a few days ago 1 see that those
who are oPDOsintr macadam road have
used evidence which does injustice to
the men who have invested largely in
stone quarries in Cass and Sarpy
counties. They show letters from the
B. & M. showing it had used stone bal
last and bad quit using the same be
cause Nebraska stone disintegrated
or went to dust from the action of the
weather. While I am willing to ad
mit the truth of this statement, the
writer should have added that this
was from a large body of stone lying
just above the Platte river, and, so
far as I know, all of that stone used
has not been good but the stone lying
above this stratum and farther iroiu
the river, from which all stone at
Louisville and Cedar Creek is now
taken, is good, durable stone, and, so
far as has been tested, does not
disintegrate, but stands the weather
just as well as granite or sand stone.
and in Umaha on Tenth and other
streets, curbing and gutters put in
eighteen or twenty years ago are just
as good as when put in, except wear
on same. I have yet failed to find any
of this stone that has not lasted us
well as any stone used. The stone on
the Weeping Water has been used for
years, and, while some different and
perhaps not tested as well, has given
good satisfaction so far as I know, and
I can't see why Douglas county should
not give this matter a fair trial and
leave the money in these counties in
place of buying from another state
and sending the money paid for labor
all away from home. This question
of macadam road is no experiment.
All your board of county commission
ers should want to know, is: Is the
stone durable ? I think twenty years
of actual test should be good evidence.
Is it fair to make the public believe
our stone is not good, when such is
not the case ? I defy any one to show
any foundation put in out of the stone
referred to that has not stood the test
as well as any other material used. If
we can get this material so near home.
