Mr. Moody, of I'eru, woke up very sud

There ate three kinds of dissipation in
the woil 1- white, red and black dissipa
tion. White dissipation is the wa-te of
li-i ve and excessive use of the brain ;
there are pious dissipation, scholarly dis
sipation, bu-iiie's dissipation, the disso
lution of the men who, with salutary
shudders, '"thank Jod that they are not
a other men are." Bed dissipation is
the dissipttion of the increase of blood
by luxurious food, or the waste cf blood
by all tho.-e passions and indulgences
which come of luxurious living. Black
dissipation is that of the grosser indul
gences which criminal men seek. The
iirst-n line 1 is iinreasing rapidly, and
taking th place of lower grades. The
peculiar folly of our age is the waste of
nerve force. In nil directions we see
the sign of brain dissipation- The dis-en-esof
virtuous men are no longer what
th-v tised to be blood diseases. I'aral-yi-
is beating up in every community
and finding recruits. Good men are liv
ing too fast. Each man is swept on
against nis win into tne tumuit oi me.
The great army of insomnist-s is increas
ing, and su'di men have a call to lunacy.

Mr. M.opes Stoekins gives us the fol
lowing items in regard to his flock of
sheep, which will be of interest to our
His flock numbers 1140. and are of the
Spanish Mt.ttr.o breed, a cios .f iheln
fautado and l'aulars. It has been kept
toget her as one flock for six years, an un
ns.ual thing in this or any section. Pur
ing the ix years the flock has ranged in
size from sam to as high as 140O. The
average amount of grain fed por head
during the winter was one bushel. The
Hock was pastured ou rye sown among
corn at the last plowing, thus costing
nothing but seed and labor of sowing.
By this meaus he wa enabled to have
good pasturage for his lambs from Sep
tember until October, thereby getting
thew in good condition to st xnd the win
ter. Mr. S. Advises sheep raisers by all
means to sow rye in this manner until
their farms arc well set with timothy and
clover and tuen il desired, they may
disperse with the rye.
The average fleece for the entire flock
was 8 V lbs, unwashed; the greatest av
erage for so large a flock we ever remem
ber seeing ; and the entire lot was pur
chased by Mr. Hatcher, of Chariton,
Iowa, for 25 cts. per lb, delivered at
Ashlaad. One of the ewes, with lambs
at her side yielded 14 pounds, and srlamb
raised on the farm by Mr. S. sheared 20
pounds. Ashlund Timet.-
A Massachusetts man who telegraphed
to New Bedford for a box of pressed ci

A well known English lord is said to
havo given the following instructions to
his steward : ' We are coming- down, a
largo party in a day or two, to eat straw
berries and cream. We shall want plen

sows be milked meanwhile."
Educational matters arc improving in
our city, and every item of progress we
are glad to note. Well qualified teach
ers are coming into Plattsmouth, are be
ins encouraged by i'3 appreciative citi
zens, and best of all intend to locate here
permanently. We refer particularly to
Miss M. L. Townsend, Music teacher,
and Mr. H. A. Austin. Miss Townsend
is a music teacher of no ordinary merit.
She has a large and interesting class, and
that the gives the highest satisfaction
to her patrons- is evidenced by the fact
that she has nearly twice as many pupils
at the commencement of her second
term as she had during the first. She
is a graduate of Maple wood Institute,
Mass., and of the Willard Seminary.
Troy, N. Y. Her diplomas speak her
standing as a musician, vocal and instru
mental. Mr. Austin three months ago
began school in the basement of the
Episcopal Church. He commenced
with eight pupils, but his school in
creased so rapidly that during the greater
part of the term it averaged forty.
Having visited his school occasionally
during the term, we have experienced
pleasure in observing his accurate schol
arship the pleasant, orderly manage
ment of his school. As a scholar and
teacher Mr. A. comes very well recom
mended, and among his other qualifica
tions is that of experience. We sincerely
hope the School Directors will engage Mr.
Austin as permanent teacher for the
First ward, in the new school house they
purpose erecting in time for the com
mencement of the fall term. We would
inquire what about the $30,000 school
house which should now grace the City
Park, but alas ! does not? I ask for the
information of all interested in our ci ty.
Are we going to have such a school ?
When ? Is it not high time that Brown
ville, Glenwood, Lnieolu, plucky little
Ashland, Mushroom Crete, by their
zeal in this mutter should provoke Platts
mouth to the good work of building a
better school house than any of them
have. Unless something is dene soon
probably Clay City and Waterloo (vide
Chase) will have good, graded public
schools before Plattsmouth.

The practical benefits of the govern
ment signal system wi re lately demon
strated, says the Carson (Nevada)
Jifgister. A terrific storm originated in
the Bocky Mountains, starting .south
ward, but on reaching Corinne, Utah,
turned eastward. Its course, as it varied
was reported by telegraph all over the
country. The signal stations on tele
graph lines are all furnished with the
weather instrument heretofore alluded
to, so that when the storm raged north
of Corinne, and was reported by tele
graph at Omaha, the report was sent on
further, as the instrument at that point
gave no sLmi of its approach. The
moment it. turned east from Utah, the
barometer at Omaha told more surely
than t ho telegraph the storm was com
ing, and it was telegraphed on to the
lakes, where the shipping was put in
readiness to receive it forty-eight hours
before it arrived. Thus did this admirable
system save life and property by its time
Takins n Swim.
Tn Ohio, last week, twenty Baptist
clergymen, who were attending a con
vention, went down to a secluded ?pot
on the river bank, in the afternoon, for the
purpose of taking a swim. These score
of brethren removed their clothing and
placed them on a railroad trick close at
hand, because the grass was wet. Theu
they entered the water and enjoyed them
selves. Presently an express train came
around the curve at the rate of forty
miles an hour, and. before any of the
swimmers could reach dry land, all those
undershirts and socks and things were
fluttering from the cow-catcher, and
speeding on toward Nebraska. It was
painful fur the brethren exceedingly
pa'uful because all the clothing that
could be found, after a careful search, was
a sun umbrella and a pair of eye glasses.
And they do say that when those
twenty marched home by the refulgent
light of the moon, that evening in single
file, and keeping close together, the
most familiar acquaintance with the
Zouave drill, on the part of the man at
the head with the umbrella, still hardly
sufficed to cover theru completely. They
said they felt conspicuous, somehow
and the situation was made all the more
embarrassing, because that night all the
Boreas Societies, and the Woman's
Bights Conventions, and the pupils at
the female boarding school seemed to be
praneinsr around the streets and running
across the grounds of the parade. Most

ot tne oretlnen are now down on iru

The American Newspaper Reporter
gets up some very sensiMe conceits about
advertising, as witness the? following :
Judicious advertising always pays.
If you have a good thing advertise it.
If vou haven't don't.
If you don't mean to min 1 your own
business, it will not pa- to advertise.
Never run down your opponents goods
in public Let him do his own advertis
ing. It's as true of advertising as of any
thing else in this world if it is worth
doing at all it is worth doing well.
You can't eat enough in one week to
last a whole year, and can't advertise on
that plan either.
A largo advertisement once, and then
discontinued, creates the impression that
the man has fizzled.
Injudicious advertising is like fishing
where there s no nh. ou need to let
the lines fall iu the righ place.
If j-ou can arouse curiosity by an ad
vertisement, it is a great point gained.
The fair sex don't hold all the curiosity
in the world.
People who advertise enly once in
three months forget that most folks can't
remember anything longer than about

OUR WY0MLNG LETTER.
ABOrT THE CITY OF THE SAINT
Fr. D. A. RfssEtt. WT. T.,
July 4, 1871. j
Besides the Tabernaclo and Temple
there are several other buildings worthy
of a passing notice. Tho Theatre is a
splendid building of stone, and on a scale
corre-ponding to the other buildings.
I had the pleasure of taking tea with
the accomplished Chaxlain of Camp Doug
las, a three Company Post, under the
command of Gen. Morrow, of which I
shall speak hereafter. Chaplain Huk
ins is an accomplished gentleman, a min
ister "of the Protestant Episcopal Church,
who, with his accomplished lady, be
stowed upon me attentions which laid me
under everlasting obligations. Through
his kindness I was shown through the
magnificent building known as '"St.
Mark's Church" which will soon be con
secrated. It is cf the Upjohn pattern
of architecture, and will be an ornament
to the city. Bi.-hop Tutt'e resides here,
and his industty and Catholic spirit arc
ornaments to our holy religion. Chap
lain Iluskins, besides his duties' as Chap
lain at Camp Douglas, has charge of a
school, which, although at present in its
formative state, is the germ of a Univer
sity, and will be a power in that city.
As you go through the city you see over
many of the stores the "co-operative"
sign, called by the Gentiles "Bull's Eye.'
In 1808, when the signs of the times
gave evidence that a new Element was
destined to infuse itself among them, tX
good Mormon merchants, manufacturers
and dealers, were directed to place this
sign over their places of business, to in
dicate who were sound in the faith ; and
all Morman people were warned not to
purchase anywhere else. By reason of
this, many Gentile and Apostle Mormons
were forced to leave the Territory for
want cf patronage. This sign consists of
a large gilt eye, ovor which is written,
"Holiness to the Lord ;" and unden eath
'Zions Co-operative Mercantile Institu
tion ;" and wo to the ualuckly wight
who placed any other sign over his place
of business! But the influx of Gentiles
is now so great that no attention is paid
to this regulation; and some of tho
wealthiest merchants do a thriving busi
ness without this protective sign.
Oi.e milo north of the c ty are the
warm springs where the city baths are
situated. To obtain possession of this
valuable watering place was of course
quite an object ; and Dr. Robinson, in
lS6f, was assassinated because he ciaim
ed them under territorial law. It was a
brutal murder, and at the time caused
great excitement. 1 tie murderers have
never been brought to justice, though
several Gentiles told me that they w-ie
known and that justice was upou their
An Vssociatiou of McthodUt Minsters

more was formed some time since, and a
novel experiment was entered upon by
thosc devoted men, which was to pitch
an immense tent capable of seating un
der it 3000 people in the principal cities
of the we?t, and continue a meeting in
eaeh place from a week to ten day?. In
San Francisco, Sacramento, an 1 Santa
Clara thei had been eminently success
ful ; and an invitation was extended to
them by the Pastor of the M. E. Church
in Salt Lake City, to pitch their tent in
that city. On Sabbath morning, June
11th, this immense tabernacle was reared,
seated and provided with a stand, ou
which the clergy, eight or ten in number,
were seated. Several ladie?, wives of
the clergymen, were magtiifiecnt singer-;
and while the immense crowd were gath
ering for the first service, several hymns
were sung with wonderful effect. It was
interesting to watch the countenances cf
the people, nine tentlw of them Morm
ans, as these beautiful melodies were
sung, reminding them of former associa
tions iu England, Ireland and Wales and
other portions of the world ; occasionally
a face wrinkled and stolid would relax,
an I the tear run down the furrowed
cheek. Iudeed, there are but few that
would not be moved to hear that charm
ing old hymn commencing, "There is a
fountain filled with blood," sung as only
Mrs. Juskip, Booly and Linville can sing
it. The services being entirely new to
that city, were full of interest.
In the afternoon I followed the crowd
to Brigham's Tabernacle. Not les than
8000 people weie seated in the body of
the house. On the west end, on raised
seats, with desks before them, sat the
Bishop's Apostles, Elders, etc. Brigham,
chief among them. Behind them are
the organ, the choir, numbering over one
hundred. 1 need not say that, with such
a company of trained singers, and such
an organ, the musio was grand; and it
was easy to perceive how such music,
with all the imposing ceremonies of the
church, and such an immense concrega
tion, would naturally affect any people.
The Gentiles wer s seated by themselves.
for the sexton knew at once when one of
them entered. Every Sabbath afternoon
the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is
administered. The Elements Bread and
Water were not passed to any but the
members. The twelve prepare the e'o
ments, while the ether exercises are in
progress ; and a prayer for a blessing up
on each ;;kind is offered by one of the
Apostles.- Yours, &c.,

Dear Herald . The speaker on the
occasion of my visit to the Tabernacle
was J. Q. Cannon a descendant of
Johu Quincy Adams. As is well known
PLATTSMOUTH, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, JULY 13, !S71.
he is the editor of the Desert -Vfii the
oficial organ of the Mormons. Ho is a
fine looking man, about forty years of
age, and a fluent speaker, an 1 stands
high among the Mormon officials. He
did not open the splendid Bible that lay
before him on the de-k, but talked in an
unimpassioned manner. He commenced
by asking why tho 3Iormons as a people
had been so persecuted, and then gave
a synopsis of their articles of belief,
most of which would be subscribed to
by any orthodox church in the land.
"There must be something," said he,
"behind all this. Is it pohgaui-? Our
persecutions commenced before we had
this revelation regarding a plurality of
sophistical. Said he, "Our prosperity,
wives." Here he made a very good
point but the next remark wa
commercially and otherwise, commenced
alter we embraced the theory of polyga
my." He overlooked the fact of the
opening up the torritorics which created
a great demand for everything they had
to sell, aud attributed all their prosperity
to their willingness to accent this "lurto
departure," this anomaly in a Christian
age, a plurality of wive. At the clo.-e
of his harangue, which was about an
hour long, the meeting closed by singing
in a very artistic manner, by the choir,
an anthem. This was really grand one
of the finest I ever heard while the
countenances of many seemed to say
"see what we can do in a musical way."
After the service I made my way to the
'residence of Brigham Young, and soon
found myself in company with Messrs.
Cannon, Pratt, Wells, and Brigham Jr.,
to whom I introduced myself and told
them I wished an introduction to Mr
Young. I was very courteously invited
to Brigham's office, adjoining his beau
tiful residence, which is fitted up in
magnificent style, for here he receives his
visitors. Mr. Young soon came in, and
after the introduction we entered freely
into conversation on various subjects,
and I soon learned that we were born
within four miles of eaeh other, in Wind
ham connty, Vermont. Brigham is
courteous to strangers, sagacious, shrewd,
and understands human nature well.
As they were to have a conference meet
ing I soon withdrew, after registering my
name in his Visitors Book. I did not
llinfervicio" him with reference to his
social relations, but a clergyman from
Philadelphia, and who was my compan
ion while in the city, spent some time
with him the day before, under more fa
vorable circumstances. Brigham told
him he had sixteen wives that he sup
ported ; and when told that it whs re
ported in the States that ho had one
hundred children, his reply was, "I am
only sorry that it is not true." He has,
I believe, fifty-two children. He was
seventy years old on the first day of
June, 1S71, and bids fair to be an active
man. for another decade of years at

The transfusion of blood as a remedy

According to the Elniira Advertiser, a
drug clerk in Williauisport. recently put
up a prescription for a young lady friend
of a dose of castor oil. She innocently
inquired how it could be taken without
tasting. He promised to explain to her,
and meantime proposed to drink a glass
of so la-water with her. When she had
finished lie said: "My friend, you have

We take the following article of "how i
the great west is populated" from the
Liverpool (England) Daily Pst of June
21st. It is somewhat lengthy, but. it j
shows that the people and the papers of j
the Oi l World are not only becoming j
better acquainted with the geography j
and internal operations of our country", I
but that they are becoming interested iu !
our affairs an i our development : j
One at tho wonders ot ttie mojern
world is the pace at which tho great
American continent, west of the Alle
ghany mountains, is being scttled and
populated. The census returns of the
United States show that there never
were such maivcls in the history of man
as th -tories of how cities have grown
up, as it were in the uiiiht, almost like
that magic city of the Arabian stor' ;
how the vast expanses of land, for cen
turies the hun' ing ground of the Indian
and ta home of the buffalo, have been,
m u few months as it were, brought un
der the doiu nion . of civilized man, and
have been mad ' available for the benefit
of tho entire human race. Amctieans
point with pride to the growth of their
West in States; they expatiate upon
the figures of the census with a real pa
triotic fervor; they think it souirthuig
worth writing down in their history that
the State of Nebrarka, for instance, has,
dating tho last five years, arrived from
the condition of a territory to the digni
ty of a State, and has more than treble-d
its population, thus leading the way iu
the history of American progre- during
the la.-t decennial period .And they
have a right to be enthusiastic, fur they
alone know how this thing has been
done. They know what we in England
are not yet aware of that results so im
mense have been achieved by American j
talent, American money, and Am ricasi
enterprise. The great tide of European
emigration would not have r?l!ed its full
volume as it has done upon the soil of
the United States but far that wonder
ful lever, the American dollar, worked
by men who have the talent to dare, and
the enemy and patriotism to accomplish,
jrreat undertakings. Australia and New
Zealand bas t almost as 14 any natural ad
vantages as ihe States, lying between the
Alleghanicis and the Bocky Mountains,
which are watered by the Missouri and
Mississippi rivers ; but the rate of their
population is but slow. It might be ex
pected .that English patriotism would
naturally direct English emigration to
English colonics. lut it may be ob
jected that the distance is too great-
Let us then tube the Canadian Domin
ion, which is at present but an express
ion for a limited amount of settled land
upon the Atlantic and along the borders
of the St. Lawrence and the Lakes Erie
and Ontario. The great expanse of
territory between this small part and
British Columbia is still virgin ea th.
Many people claim for it a soil as rich as
any of the Western State", a climate
just suited to the English constitution,
and, more than ail, the benefits of iiv
itiit under English supremacy, and main
taining, by a loyal link, the conncctiuu
with the oi l country. Canada is at lea-t
as near as the United States. There are
parts yet unsettled which are more ac
cessible, iu point of distance, than tlu
centres of the West, to which Emdi: h
emigration is now tending. How does it
happen, '.then, that the best of all possible
emigrants, the men whose forefathers
wen: among that impo'tant class of
English yeomen who farmed their own
lands with their own 'money, are finding
their way to the central Western States
of Nebraska and Iowa, where they will,
by expending their capita!, .heir energy
and their labor, iu a tew years become
men of substance and independence, as
their ancestors once were in England.
It is all owing to the iinmcn-e enter
prise and resources cf a society of Bos
ton capitalists, who have grasped the
ilea that a true coloniser of a country is
the railway, ari l who have, therefore, at
their own cost, hud down lines of rail
way across the continent in the cnulide.it
assurance that emigrants will follow the
railway. Tiue, they havo been as-isied
by Congress, which has encouraged t he
companies by land grants, and has as
sisted immigration by homestead and
preemption laws; but, in only one in
stance that of the Pacific Railroad has
Congress consid red it-elf justified iu ad
vancing the nation.'.' mouey or giving ex
tra facilities to build railroads. The
wine left to bu'.ii their roads ana they
d.d uot hei:atc, with their own money,
to lay them down; a tl.ough they had
110 guarantee, bcyon 1 their own enter
prising characters, that they would have
a dollar returned, simply beeaii-e they
worked on land which was not then popu
lated. Among this a-soe:atiou of Mas
sachusetts capitalist three gentlemen of
Boston, disposing alono of personal
capital to the amount of four mil
lions sterling, may bo distin
guished. At the time when they com
menced operations Michigan, the
capital of Michigan State, Mtuated at
the southern extremity of the lake of
that uaine, was considered the extreme
point of the Far West. Their first work
thou, was the construction of the rail
way which runs from Detroit, at the
ea-tein extremity of Michigan State,
to the western end, at Michigan city,
with a terminus at Chicago, in the Stare
of Illinois. This undertaking is now
known by the name of the Michigan
Central Railway ; and there is no exagg
eration iu saying that to its operations
the enormour prosperity 'of Michigan,
and its. increase of population, as shown
by the last census, arc almost entirely
owing. The company is one of the most
prosperous iu the States, and fuiiy justi
fies the men who had the wisdom to see
that Chicago w is about to become one
of the great eiti:s of ihj continent, and
what it now i; the railway centre of
the United Scutes and the great entrepot
of the grain trade of the world. Their
next undertaking was the rai.way run
ning from Chicago right across the splen
did State, of Illinois, who.-c ' history is
representative in that of western pro
gress, to Buih'iuton, situated on the
we.-t bank of the Mississippi, in the State
of Iowa, with a branch from Galesburg
to Quincy, both places being in Iowa.
j under ttie name ot the. Chicago, nur
! lineton and Ouii.cy Railroad it has had,
perhaps, the mo t successful history ot
any of the United State-, railroads.
1 Only last year a dividend of .'53 percent,
j was iliv.dtd among theshaiehoiders, and
1 the shares are hardly to be bought at
J any price a fact which is calcinated
I to make even a Notth V'e-:ern shire
j hol ler despair and to send ji Cnattiam
j and Dover . harehold r mad- But the
j prosperity of their old undertakings ha?
, heen shuply the incentive to new ones.
j ne next enterprise was stiu more gi
gantic an l daring. This intrepid pioneer
association determined upon the cJn
siructiou of the Burimgt n and Missou
ri River Railway, whieh runs from Bur
linato'i, in Iowa, to Fort Kearney, in
Nebraska, where it joins the Union pa
cific Railroad, taking in its coarse tho
a Pk. m a m W
city 01 L'tiio'n. tiie Cip al o Nebraska.
This was an imm nse u 1 er aking. anl
included the crossing cf the great Mis
son i 'river at Platrsao .th. But the
ui 11 who had bridged the Mississippi on
the Burlingto.i a id Chicago system are
not t be daunted by the Missouri.
The entire length of the work accom
plished by thos, gi ntletutu may be stated
as follows; Michigan Central, 300
miles; Chicago and Burlington, 200
miles; and the Burlington and Missouri
River Railroad, about 4od miles; total
u"0 miles all cf which has been done
'by the efforts of a small number of
Americ tn capitalists in a few years.
They had it in their minds to develop
their eountiy. They laid down oni lin ,
and as fast as that was de eloped more
capital was invested in another line, so
that the work has proceeded, almost
without interruption, at what advantage
to the States no one can calculate. This
is the way the great West has beep and
is being colonized by American enter
prise, American pluck, nnd American
capital. The men who can spend their
money in laying down lines from which
the return must ho long delayed are en
titled to be considered something uioie
than mere capitalists. They are the col
on ze s of the wist, a title which their
own countrymen at least will not fail to
re pect. Speculators they are not at all,
for they lay out their own money, and
a'one would suffer tho penary if the
proper result did not accrue f. m si. ch
indomi abie enterprise. Of course, th -y
are nor the men to sit down and wait
while the immigrants are coming. Tuey
are so sattsfie'tl with the results of the
liast and well they may be, when we
look at the condition of Michigan, Illi
nois, and Iowa that they have sent
agents to Kngland to tell us what is go
ing on, and to show the better class cf
emigrants v, hat opportunities American
capital has provided for them in the
West on the land allotments of their new
pioneer line which ciosses the Missouri
river. There can be no question that
the foregoing relation will be entirely
new to English readers who have not
troubled themselves to inquire how so
tremendous a problem as the colonisation
of the Western States of America is be
ing worked out. It will be new to them
also, for they have no parallel 10 it in
tho lii-tory of their colonies. The State
assisted railroads in Canada do not even
progress, while it is certain that re-emigrants
leave Canada for the Western
States. The difference between the rate
at which the West is being peopled and
that at which Canada is standing still is
due entirely, not to natural advantages,
but to the enterprise of the men of Bos
ton and the east, who, when the history
of America comes to be written, will
stand out as those who have by their
wi.-loin, energy, and daring contributed
to the greatness, happiness, and pros
perity of their country, and who well de
serve their title of pioneers of civiliza
tion in the West.

July llth, J 871. j
Friend Hathaway : Since my last
letter there lias been few :'uioving inci
dents by flood or field" to record, unless
von set down the storm on the night of
the oih .is "wan of thim." It made
Crete "howl," and would have served
Rome in the same way, had old Seven
Hills been here. It seemed that the
bottom of the heavenly tub had fallen
out, none of your upper icindoio storms ;
but a rejidur "sou", sou'-west, by son,
sir," one. exceedingly trying to these
monuments of architecture in and about
Crete, ditto to my nerves. The balloon
I resi le in settled, warped, and came
near walking off "like a thing of life."
yiy b.iir is light, hut sot with years.
Nor grew it white
Ou a single nuht,
As'meu's linve grown "from sud.ion f'.irs."
But I must say the "Ancient" was a
little iiu.-trated only a little ; just flus
t rated that's all. Happily no damage
was done to buildings, and but little in
jury to the crops, which are now being
harvesteJ, cut with reaper and cradle.
I want no more storm iu mine, I piefer
a "little sugar."
The Fourth passed off pleasantly and
quietly, none of your second edition
(bound in calf ) of Demosthenes, ' charg
ed along the line" pregnant with patri
otism and potatoes, with the "eys of the
world" upon him ; or like a brief candle,
strutted and fretted, the usual time (00
minites), on the stage, full of wrath
and cabbage, signifying "nix ;" none of
them had we ; but in lieu thereof, fire
works and the "hop light Lou" in the
evening, both of which were creditabe to
to the "getters up thereof." The me
chanics of Crete, and ''mine hosts" of
the Sherman House (house and host as
good as wheat) give a cotillion party,
which passed off pleasantly, the at
tendance being increased by a large par
ti' from Ashland.
I heard of the "watery disaster" at
Plattsmouth ; some were sufferers who
could afford it and some who couldn't;
therefore it rains on the "just and the
unjust" alike. The res .Its are not so
like ; on the contrary, they are quite the
reverse. In fact, your city got the
wrong '"Fitz.," as Wolf will tell you
sometimes, "r Jits you bttter mitout
