PERSONAL, POLITICAL AND PERTINENT.
Joha Ramsey was in town yesterday
and says people are bantering him
about being a candidate for sheriff
He says be is not a candidate, but if
they run him and don't elect him
he'll kill somebody, sure. He says
"tell the people I'm for Bryan and free
coinage, that's all."
A Nebraska City man was run in by
the police the other night for "rushing
the growler" at that city. It cost him
two dollars and trimmings the next
The Falls City Xews says: "It
quite refreshing to know that there
not an idle carpenter or builder in the
city. They are engaged either upon
constructing new buildings or re
modeling old ones. This enterprise is
not only commendable but is an ad
vertisement that is of inestimable
value to the whole city.
Of late years there has been some
progress in the holy land; there are
railways now where the patriarchs
used to watch their, flocks, or where
their hired men watched them, and
and the voice of the brakeman may be
heard at Dan and Beersheba. There
are lunch counters at the depot, just
as in this country, and Asa, the son of
Shem, the son of Joshua, may be seen
girding up his loins and handing oyer
vitrified sandwiches, while Ruth and
Naomi wash dishes in the rear. There
is progress in every direction, except in
agriculture; a Fremont traveler who
has been there says that is painful to
watch the farmer farm. He doesn't
know what a riding plow is; he hitches
an ox or a camel to a stick, and plows
the ground that way. If he has a crop,
he harvests it with a sickel; if he
hasn't a crop he goes to the wailing
place and buys a few yards of sack
cloth and ashes. A big farm there
wouldn't be a truck patch here. Walt
Mason in Fremont Herald.
This town i3 so situated that when
ever the people want a rain, all that

The packing company have shipped
within the past week over a million
pounds of meat to Chicago. Last
week fourteen cars were shipped and
today eleven more cars were paid out.
This is very fair for "a sleepy old
town" like Nebraska City, as some of
the papers published in sister towns
who are jealous of our prosperity, call
us. Nebraska City News.
Frank N. Potter, formerly of this
city, has recently purchased a half-interest
in the Spearfish (South Dakota)
Weekly Register, and the firm name is
now Potter & Grant. The paper is
bright and newsy and enjoys a very
liberal advertisingpatronage, showing
that the merchants of Spearfish are
wideawake and enterprising. The
Journal congratulates Messrs. Potter
& Grant and wishes them every suc
cess. W. G. Keefer, the harness man, says
he has been moving about from pillar
to post in the effort to secure a better
place, but now he has come back to
Plattsmouth, fully satisfied that there
is no better county than Cass to live
in or to do business in, and he has
opened up his business here and is go
ing to stay in Plattsmouth through
thick and thin. He says people gen
erally don't appreciate the magnificent
county we have here, as compared
with others, but he does, and shows
his faith by his works.
A party of eighty land agents, under
the guidance of Assistant General
Passenger Agent Smith, who are from
the middle states, went out on the
Burlington via Plattsmouth yesterday
to see the crops and ascertain for
themselves what the trans-Missouri
region is producing this year. World-
Nehawka is securing lots of adver
tising of late. First comes a boy from
there accused of unmentionable of

one of her young men attempts the
commission ox a criminal assault on a
woman. Next I
An exchange in discussing the
rights of owners of vehicles on the
road, calls, attention to a point not
seemingly understood or observed, as
follows: When you are driving along
and a team comes up behind don't
imagine he has no right to go ahead
without your permission is asked, and
don't imagine you are justified in
whipping up and crowding the team
attempting to go around out on the
rough, or into the ditch. You perhaps
have the right to race with the party
attempting to go around, but you must
give half the road or you will pay the
damages in case of accident. Ihe
road does not belong to any one man,
and the man who comes up behind
you perhaps knows the gait he wants
to travel as well as you ao. n ne
wants to travel faster than you do he
had a right to go ahead, and If you
prevent him from exercising that right
you are liable for prosecution for ob
structing the public highway.
The Journal has it from authority
that if the county fair association will
repair its pens properly, puttting cov
ers over them, they can secure a dis
play of the best hogs in the county.
Hog raisers want good pens for their
stock or they will not bring them.

clock repairer takes exception to the

about not keeping the clock in repair.
He said that he had not been notified
about the clock not striking, or he
would have attended to it at once. He
further stated that it was impossible
to keep the time-piece in good running

to go up in the tower and meddle with

The early counties of Nebraska
were named after noted democratic
leaders of that day, all the territorial
officials up to 1860 being democrats.
The legislatnre afterwards changed a
number of counties made during that
period. Pierce county was changed to
Otoe, Forney county to Nemaha,
Green county to Seward, Izard county
to Stanton, Jones county to Jefferson,
Monroe county to Platte. Lancaster
county was formerly called Clay
county and Saunders was originally
named Calhoun county. Ex.
A liuslness Enlargement.
The clothing house known as Joe's,
at the opera house corner, has during
this week been undergoing a change,
Mr. Frank Alshuler, an experienced
merchant late of La Salle, 111., having
bought the Klein interest in the stock,
and the new firm will hereafter be fa
miliarly known under the style of Joe
& Frank, and they propose to sell lots
of goods, because they know how and
where to buy, and will have the best
that the markets aiford, and can sell
at the lowest prices. The enlargement
of this firm is one of the evidence of
the new life and vigor that is springing
up in this city. Mr. Alshuler will de
part in a few days on a purchasing
tour to the east, and while gone will
select a large stock of the best and
most attractive grades in clothing to
be found in the markets. Good for
tune attend the new firm.

Kevolt In Iowa Democratic Itanka Over
. Ihe 1'lat form
Reports from various points in Iowa
iudicate a formidable revolt against
the auti-silver platform adopted by the
democratic state convention at Mar
shalltown last week. It is believed by
some observers that many democrats
will vote the populist ticket and that
others will not vote at all. At Council
Bluffs two members of the county com
mittee, among them W. II. Ware, rep
resentative in the legislature, have
resigned their positions, refusing to act
with the party under the circumstan
ces, declaring they will not act with
any other party, and it is thought that
the entire committee will resign.
Among the most outspoken of the
disaffected ones is Judge W. C. James,
who points with pride to a voting
record of over forty year.-, in which
thers is not a single instance when he
failed to vote the democratic ticket.
Interviewed he said: "If the declara
tions of the Marshalitown convention
are true then we have been misrep
resenting, abusing and lying about the
republican party ever since 1S79. This
financial declaration is identical with
the principles of the. republican party
as laid down in every state convention
since the crime of 1873. There is no
difference today between the two par
ties, and as the republicans have always
been consistent on this subject the
acknowledgment of the Iowa demo
crats that their antagonists are right
gives them a tremendous advantage,
and I will watch them win another
great victory in Iowa this fall without
any sorrow. I do not say I will vote
the republican ticket, but only that I
will not the democratic, and as I am
not a populist and have no patience
with their vagaries, I will do what a
great majority of thedemocrats aiound
here will do not vote at all. There
were 125 federal office holders in that
state convention, and nearly all of
them were there by proxy. They rep
resented Cleveland am! his irt.M buts,
and not the democratic party of Iowa."
J. J. Shea, chairman of the demo
cratic free silver committee and last
year candidate for clerk of he supreme
court on the democratic st te ticket, is
out in an open letter, in which he
charges the. federal officeholders in the
convention with nil sorts of threats,
bulldozing, cajolery and bribery in de
feating the free silver amendment. He
advises democrats not to halt, but to
keep up the fiht. In conclusion he
says: "Next yeat we must meet the
same foe, the same men, the same
organization. Then it will be a fight
to the death. Either the serpent or
the party must die. I have an abiding
faith in the death of the suak-; that
people will again assume control and
that the self-appointed bosses will be
relegated to deserved obscurity. . Until
then the duty of a good democrat is to
wait, watch, to organize, to overthrow
and rebuke the gang now in control."
Democratic County CiiiiTruiioii
There will b a delegate convention
of the democrat, party of Cass county,
held at Union on Tuesday, August 2U,
1895, at 1 o'clock p. m. for the purpose
of choosing twenty-one delegates to
the democratic state convention to be
held in Omaha, Nebraska, on August
22, 1895, and to choose delegates to the
judicial convention to be called.
The primaries will be held in the
different waida and precincts at the
usual places, on Saturday, August 17,
1893, at 8 o'clock p. m. for the purpose
of choosing delegates to the conven
tion at Union and also to choose dele
gates to a county nominating conven
tion to be called later. The basis of
representation is one delegate for each
twenty votes, or major fraction thereof
cast for Harvey D. Travis for county
attorney in 1894, this basis to govern
each convention. It is recommended
that the delegates present cast the full
vote of the ward or precinct and no
proxies be allowed.

are entitled to delegates as follows:

What Is she sewing with cable thread?
Dresses for dollle, of blue and red,
Stitches her troubles all in between.
Fastens the blue to the red and green !
Says she Is weary and weak and tired ,
But has no money to get them hired.
Why is she smiling while tears drop down
Onto the snow of her misty gown ?
Can she be stitching the smiles in too,
And the tears, as the dart travels through?
The Mush that runs over brow and cheek
Plays with the needle at hide and reek.
What is she stitching into the seams?
Gossamer threads from the land of dreams
What? in the gathers and plaits and hems,
Rainbows raveled from radiant gems.
What is she frilling with laces fine?
Tinier garments than yours or wine.
What is t-he stitching so sadly there?
Can it be something that she must wear?
Something as sombre as grief and pain.
Guiltless of r utile; severe and plain.
What is she stitching along the black
But the hope that Mill never come back?
Her task is finished and others sew
There in the twilight silent and slow.
Stitch h r a garment of peace and est
To hide the snow of her pulseless breast;
Threading a story of unseen lands
Into the gathers and plaits and bands.
