CALVERT, : : NEBRASKA.
This now and rapidly growing town
is not yet ono year old, yot it ua at
this tiino about ono hundrod and fifty
houses within its boundaries res!-'
donees and business houses. It has
two hotels, ono of which whs built
purposely as such, two storios, 80 x 70
feet, which is well constructed within
and without.eoinfortably I'umished.and
as well kept as any in tho Slate, but
lias already been found to bo too small
to accommodate its guests. The other
' Hotel is small, but well kept, and tills n
presonUneed. Jt has also tluoo dry
goods and grocery stores; two drug;
stores; two lumber yards; two agri
cultural implement stores; two black
smith shops; ono hardware and furni

linking over the above list, that wliilo
Cuetown is remarkably well supplied
vlth business, lor its ago, thin: nre
many brandies that it lacks that would
prosper, and some that wo have needs
1 competition. Calvert is located on tho
'. & M. railroad, is a favoiito of the
Jihieoln Land Company, and backed
by their money, tho ,t6rn sito being
owned by that- company. It is at, or
, a.0 near the junction of tho Union Pa
ul lie with tho JJ.& M. as to bo available
for all practicable commercial purposes.
' JiV, connection with these advantages
' fls well to bear in mind that Calvert
is situated at the center of Nemaha
county, ono of the oldest, best cultivat
ed and richest counties in the State.
Xemaha county is in the southeast
corner of he state, lying m the iSIis-stAu-r
river. Tho .locality, it will lie

of tho must genial climate Nebraskn

wJtEfrom north, south, east add west,
isXJHure to become, when united with
ijprsistor town of Sheridan, the shire
town of the county. For tho informa
tion of thoso who may not kuow, ami
now readers at a distance, we will say
that I lie town sites of Calvert and
Sherid.in join, Calvert being directly on
t the south. The matter of uniting' the
'"two towns under ono name is now be
ing considered, untlit is cmilhjuntlvj though, they strike ut against torn:
expected that this union wiIPTfo uon-fubleTdriipetltilion, they will meet w

having the direct advantages of the
M. P. depot, as Calvert lias of that of
tho JL & M., is also booming, and con
sidering thu growth of the two towns
as but one, the strides in building,
business and wealth is, to sav the least,
immense. When you comoto Nebras
ka, conio and look at these towns and
vou will certainly bo suited, in what
ever business yon want to engage.somo
where in this locality. Our climate
and water are good, wo have immense

house for soulo time, fur tho purpose
as they say, of get ting the drop on Jesse
