rice Dr. Johnson, resigned.
Col. M. D. Polk of the News passed
his S7th milestone Friday, and aside
from a stoop in his shoulders and the
loss of several front teeth, the colonel

Messrs. Davies and Orton of this

against the Liambourn bill for the per

Lincoln, and helped to make up the
number of votes necessary to kill it.

The Plattsmoutii Journal, says
that Sj ith Hires, who is quite well
known in this county, has rented a
farm in Cass county, quit drinking

what it is talking about. Nebraska
Nebraska City had another lire in
the business portion of the town early
Friday morning. The loss, how
ever, was only slight, amounting to
8500. During the last two or three
months Nebraska City has had about
"steen dozen" fires, and several of
them caused considerable loss.

the information that Horace Brown
and Tom l'armele, both of whom are
ex-Plattsmouthians, are candidates
for trustees of the village of Louis
ville. The election occurs next Tues
day but it is not too late to import
several dozen voters from Plattsmouth
to cast their votes for the boys.
As a financial. investment there is
none better than to keep your build

costs, besides it looks so much better
to see everything painted up new

Mrs. Mary Wolf of Cedar Creek is
now in the city for the treatment of
her daughter, whose left foot has not
been of much use to her, the cords of
the insten having crown fast to the
bones. Dr. Humphrey performed an
operation on the foot some days ago,
loosening the muscles or cords so that
the foot can grow into a normal con
dition. A shoe with proper braces has
been prepared for her to wear, so that
nature can be helped.
Information from Thayer, Mo
gives the news of the death in that
town on Tuesday last of Mr. S. II.
Davis, after an illness with pneu
monia. Mr. Davis made his home in
this city for several years with his son
Frank Davis, and with the latter has
been living in Missouri for the past
year. He had passed his three score
years and was no doubt prepared to g
having been a member of the Method
ist church for a great many years.
The three-year-old child of Andy
Artttrbun. living five mile southwest
of Blue Hill, this state, was fatally
burned Wednesday last. The parents
were out doing their evening chores
and when they returned, being attrac
ted by the scream of the child, they
found the little girl in flames and a
cradle in which was an infant all
ablaze. The whole room was afire.
The child died the day following after
suffering untold agony.
The case of Clyde Opelt, charged
with having violated rules of the ex
cise board in the sale of liquors out of
hmirs, has been continued nine times.
It was to hav been tried March 26,
but it seems to have dropped out of
sight and all queries regarding its dis
position are met with replies which in
dicate that those questioned do not
know. The police record shows the
last continuance to March 26, but
Captain Mason says be dees not know
what has been done with the case.
We learn that Col. Polk's News, on
the strength of its being the official
city paper for this year, will insist on
publishing all of the saloon license
notices every day in two weeks, as the
law contemplates, and will charge
inereior the run legal rate is :..
TLeNewi insists that once a week for
two weeks is not a legal publication;
that the question was raised in
Beatrice last year and the full two
weeks" publication was required and it
therefore has a right to demand the
full leeal rate. In our opinion Col.
Polk's position is about right, but
whether the saloou men will stand it
is another question.
