Mr. Fairbanks left a specimen of
Sorghum molasses at our office a few days
since, which is eqnai, if not superior to
any we ever tasted. The manufacture
of molasse9 is becoming quite an item ij

fp"A little daughter of Mr. Johnson
fell from the bridge on Second street, a
distance of some fifteen or twentj feet,
one day last week. Persons near by run
to her rescue, but found she had receive 1
no serious injury; but, child-like, made
inquiry for her bonnet the Erst thing.

- T2ltz Walker,--who livea two and a
half miles south west of town, left at oar
office ast Monday morning an apple
weighing nineteen ounces. The apple
grew on his farm, and he informs us.be
baa about twenty bushels of the same
sort the "Sweet Paradise." Sixty
eight of them make a bushel. Who wilj
nw bare the hardihood to say that Ne
braska ia not a fruit country. An apple
weighing nineteen ounces, and only about
nine years since the first fruit tree was
planted m the Territory! Mr. Walker has
about thirty acres of an orchard, and
railed suf&cieAt ftolt in the fast two
years'to nearly pay for his farm, which
if one of the best in Nebaaska.
rTMr. M. I!. Murphy has the
agency in this city for Clark's Patent
Improved Sash Lock. They aro an ex
cellent thing, and every window in the
city tdiould have one of them on. They
prevent burglars from opening the win
dow from the outside, and will save the
finri of your children. Every business
house nt well ns dwelling should be
supplied with them. A specimen can be
seen on our office windows.
C"5?"A resident of rhe southern part of
this cou-ity concluded to try the experi
ment of running his team across the
bridge on Seeond St. one day last week,
in violence of the city law." He was
forthwith brought to "time" by Marshal
Mickelwait, and had the pleasure of niak- I
ing the city a present of fivo dollars.

and then enforce obedience to them,' re

receiving their stock of winter goods.
They have a largo house, and it will be
filled from cellar to gnrret, with all man
ner of goods'needed by freighters farm
ers and mechanics. This is the oldest
trm in Plattsmouth, if not the oldest in
ttie Territory; and they have done much
toward making the town what it is. They
iave stuck by the place through "good
and evil report," and have merited the
success in bnsines which they have achiev
ed. If you want to find accommodating
clerks, cheap goods and plenty of them,

number of the "Soldiers Casket,' Pub
lished by C. W. Alexander, Philadelphia.
This number contains an excellent arti
cle from Mrs. Sherman on the death of
Wm T. Sherman jr; also the proceedings j
of a meettng of the "Soldiers Union."
The "Casket''' is published in the exclu
sive interest of the soldiers, free rum
politics. Cact-ot a club be raised in

(37"As we are accused of having the
bridge mania, we might as well plead
guilty to the fact first as last. We
acknowledge that we da. feel an interest
in 8eein not only bridges, but all other
improvements, pushed forward with as
much energy as the trade of our city de
mands, even should there not at all
times be a surplus of funds in the city
treasury. There is scarcely a city of any
importance in tho land bat that in its
infancy had to go beyond the funds
in their treasury in order to place public
improvements in a proper shape, and we
see no reason why Plattsmouth should be
an exception when it is a fact admitted by
all that the improvements- are essential
o the prosperity of the place. We are
glad to be able to record that the bridge
on Main St. is approaching completionj
nevertheless we are aorry the city au
thorities do not see the necessity of put
ting in something of a more permanent
character. We look upon Plattsmouth
as "a "fixed fact," ao for as regards its
future prosperity; and we think the day
is past when chetp and temporary im
provements should be made. If our cit
izens wish to facilitate the growth and
business of the place, let them take hold
of things in a shape that will carry con
victum to the mind of,the stranger that
we have faith in our future, and it will
be of more benefit than all the "wind
work" that could be done in a life time.
In our remarks about bridges, side-walks,
fic.f we have no disposition to find fault
with our city authoities, farther than we
deem it necessary to tho prosperity of
of the place to do ao; but when we see
negligence on their part that is detri
mental to the progress of business, we
shall so 6tate it, regardless of whom it
may hurt or who it may please, until we
are convinced that they are right and we

CVOur streets have been unusually
full of heavy freighting teams for the
past week. The large government
freight wagons are becoming more plen
tiful here than they were formerly, which
is a good evidence that strangers, who
do a larger business than our local
freighters, are beginingto fnJ out the
advantages of making this their starting
point. We have, truthfully as we think,
persisted in the statement that freight
can be hauled from this point west cheap
er than from any other point on the river;
aad a'.l we ask is for freighters to give it
a fair trial, and we have no fears as to
the result. The road is the shortest and
. by far the best, and the facilities for
outfitting equal, at least, to any place on
the Missouri river.

EST" We understand the freighting
from Nebraska City has fallen off won
derfully of late, and the freighters are
selling off their stock at a great sacri
fice. A gentleman just from there
states that good four year old cattle go
"begging" at $50. per yoke, and mules
in the same ratio. Could not some of
our freighters make a "spec." by going
there to purchase, as the business is
steadily increasing from th-s point.
fteT" A large number of boys, be
sides some that were "not so much
boys" congregated on Main street
yesterday to witness the "breaking in"
of a wild mule. The rider was bold
and fearless; and, notwithstanding the
"animule" went through a number cf
maneuvers not laid down in the "tac
tics," such as climbing up stairs and
trying to enter stores, he held on man
fully until the beast was satisfied to go
along in a more orderly manner.
