that the election cf members shall be

important that tho Board of County

Messrs. Ogdon, May and Foot?, of
Stove Creek, have la'.d out a new town at
the intersection of the road from Platts-
mouth to Lincoln and the road from
South Bend Station on the U &. M. to
Palmyra on tho Midland. The new
town is to .be. called Uuionville. The
proprietors offer to donate the alternate
lots in the town to any and all narties
who will build on them, and they espe
cially invite mechanics who desire a good
location to come and sec them and accept
their loffers. The town is in the midst
of a very rich and populous part of Cs
county, and cannot fail to become a
point of some note at no distant day.
It is about midway between the B. & M.
and the Midland road.", also about mid
way between Plattsmouth and Lincoln.
The proprietors are energetic men, and
will make their project a succors.

Wc pei an hour at Hesser's Pie Nic
Gardens one day last week, for the first
time since lat season. We found that
he had made many improvements tince
our last visit, prominent among which is
his new Green House. He has now
over two thousand fquare feet of ghss
rno.t of which is arranged for heating by
flue.. In his new Green House there
are over two hundred feet of brick flue,
arranged so as to throw out heat from
the bottom as well as the top. In this
house Mr. He?ser raises all his early
vegetable?, such as lettuce, rhubarb, etc.,
and be has now on hand enough fine,
crisp lettuce, to supply all Plattsmouth.
But the place where one naturally de
sires to spend the most time is in the
old Green House, where most of the
choice flowering plants are to be found,
embracing all the new and choice varie
ties that are to be found in any green
house in America. In the various com
partments of the green house can be
seen at the present time over six thous
and different plants. There are seventy
five different varieties cf verbena, all of
which will be in bloom in the course of a
week or ton Jays, (a sight worth going
an hundred miles to witness), lit? re
are fifty different varieties of gcra&: : as,
heliotrope, fuschia, begonia ivy, myrtle,
etc., in abundance. In tho line of
shrubs you can find the famous "Prairie
Queen" toss, one of the best climbers
known; the "Baltimore Bell," and all
the varieties of hardy rocs and shrubs,
There are any quantUy of tu!ip, daffo-
dtletc, just ready to bloooi, and seve
ral very beautiful roses already make
the air fragrant with their blooms. If
you would be wiser, better, and happier,
go to the Piu Nic Gardens and spend an
hour pr two. The man or "woman who
spends' an hour at nesserV and who
does not feel a warmer love for nature
and nature's God at the end of that

Pursuant to call, the young men of
our citycmet'at tire appointed place
Chase & Thomas office and effected the
organization of a Base Ball Club. There
were not so many present as was ex
pected or hoped there would be , owing
to unavoidable circumstances. Commit
tees on Constitution and By-laws, selec
tion of ground, e.te etc-, were appointed
and all seemed "anxious and determined
to make it a success. Plattsmouth has
alnady ""several young men who are
screnced"in the game, and those who do
not understand it will soon learn it, and
4)6 'doubt find it a very pleasant and
healthful recreation. We admire the pluck
and energy of our young men in Platts
mouth in anything they undertake, and
wc thall be especially pleased to note the
progress of th e CI .b from time to time,
and on anything else of importance that
our young men may see fit to institute.
The Clcb meets again next Wednesday
(to-morrow) evening, at the offiee of
Chase & Thomas, to further perfect the
organization and transact other business
of importance. We hope to haTe the
pleasure of witnessing the first game of
this Club soon, as well as every game
after. - - - -

a ball Nature be Altd.
Written for tlie Ilerald.
As Mr. Hathaway has again set the
ball rolling up Chicago Avenue, and as
the year has already been made memo
rable in the history of Plattsmouth by
the opening of a grand Hall, why not
make it more so, by the opening of one
or more grand Avenues.
No man is rich who has nothing but
money, and no town will ever be rich
which is destitute of beauty and conve
nience. How much the opening of ave
uues will benefit the town financially de
pends upon its future size. Nature has
done more for Plattsmouth than for any
other place within a great distance.
Just below town there is a point which
has been washed by the Missouri for cen
turies. This is evidence that it will never
injure the bank immediately oppositet
which is a divine insurance, on the safety
of the R. R. bridge whsn built there.
Again, elevators built at this place can
discharge their grain into cars or boats at
pleasure. This privilege connected with
the fact that Plattsmouth has the be&t
grain growing region upon tho globe
west of it, must make it the best grain
depot west of Chicago. So far, it has
shipped mere grain than any othtr town
on the Missouri. No other Pacific Rai
Read passes from Chicago to the Pacific
on a route bo short, or through a country
so productive. Nature has graded five
avenues leading into Plattsmouth. The
one coiaing from Platte river, is a ro
mantic drive and an ea?y grade. With
a bridge crosses the Platte, noith of this,
Plattsmouth will get the trade of a large
section north of the Platte. Another
avenue coming from the west Trill inter
sect with this near Heisel'u mill and
reach Main street, by laid out streets
which need but little grading. Two
other avenues come in from the south
intersecting at Mr. O'Ncil'p. The other
is the Chicago Avenue. Shall all the
advantages of these avenues, to grade
which, would have cost millions if per
formed by human labor, bo thrown away.
When the towu becomes large, it must
have street cars. They can only beriinon
streets long an 1 straight. They canaot
run far upon any of the present streets
without making deep cuts. These
would destroy the value of lots bordering
on them, for who would live with a per
pendicular bank from ten to twenty feet
high in a few feet of hia door? Men
would desert their houses after the cuts
were made. The cross streets would
need suspension bridges, unless they too
were cut down. After ibis the town
would need a coroner's jury in constant
session. It would be dangerous to drink
4 benzine." Busiuess houses cannot be
on streets that run along on tops of hills.
They must be access.ble to loaded teams.
Again, wc all wish to have men of wealth
and taste settle in Plattsmouth. The
first thing such men do on visiting a town
is to drive through and out of it into the
surrounding country. Would not a drive
along beautiful avenuc3 be one of the
best arguments to influence them. Even
if the avenues were rough and unadorned
for a time, they would ce that the fouo
datiou was laid and that time would per

Men who give the land for thc?o ave
nues, will be repaid by the increased

angular, and villainous ; or a large and
beautiful city, approached by grand and

.Mr. Editor : The teachers of Cass
count held their second regular meet
ing. at Rock Bluff, on Saturday last.
The attendance was not as good I antici
pated. The people of Eight 3Iile Grove secui
ed to be more interested in the cause of
education than the people iu and around
the vicinity of Rock Bluffs. However,
those who attended denied highly de
lighted, and they requested the teachers
to hold their next monthly meeting
there. This was agreed to so that the
first Saturday in April the teachers will
ueet ogain at Rock BlalT-i.
The Naomi Institute, vthvre the teach
ers held their session, is a splendid
building; and Professor J. I). Patter
son, who conducts the establishment, is
a very superior man, in everything that
concerns education. The subjects dis-
cusxed by the teachers were grammar,
arithmetic, geography and ancient his
tery, (Rome and England), in which
they Kceuied to be well posted. The
night session wis employed in discuss
ing the propriety of compelling children
to attend school :i certain portion of
each year. There was considerable tal
ent displayed in the discussion of this
subject. Some outsiders took part in
this debate. Among those that did so,
were a Rock Bluff physician and another
gentleman whose name or profession I
did not ascertain. These gentlemen
were in lor compulsory attendance.
There was one teacher present, and who
aiso, attenuea at i-glit Jlile urove, and
his object was to exalt, in the prcseve
of the audience, the teachers of Otoe
county and humble the teachers of Cass.
His effoit3 proved ineffectual. There
are teachers in Cass county who can com
pete with any teachers ia any county cr
State in tho Union.
We failed to receive the vote for
School Director with the result of the
reai of the ejection last evening, tut learn
that S. Duke, Republican, was elected
by a handsome majority.
Read the communication to-day in re
gard to the Avenues, and let whoever
may be elected to the City Council to
morrow remember that the people d"
aiaad the opening of one or more of
these naatural approaches to tbe city.
