STATE FAIR FHtMICMS.
We had expected to give, to day, a
Hit of premiums awarded at the State
Fair but the list published so far has
been so incomplete that we ?hall now
await the official statement. Suffice to
say, Cass carried off more important pre
miums, probably, than any other county
in the State.
' When and How?"
A MAMim I.MERCKT.
Omaha takes a wonderful interest in
our State Fairs, and thinks the next one
should be held in that city. As an evi
dence of this we copy the following item
from a correspondent, of the Nebraska
City Chronicle, -writing from Urownville
durintr the, recent Fair:-
"Tho articles on exhibition hero from
north of the Platte river uonMat of one
bo crackers, two bushels of wheat, a
lot or soap, and some photography.

The Omaha Bee has the following
item relative to the building of the
Platte river bridge, which will be hailed
with Joy (not Jas. F ) by the people of
Work on the Platte river bridire will

BEST IT THE I'MTKO STATES.
The following just tribute to one of
the most euterprisiug citizens of Cass
county is from the Omaha Republican,
written from the State Fair :
"James M. Wood, of Cass county,
who, judging from the excellence of his
cattle, must be recognized as a stock rais
er to whom, as a class, Nebraska is great
ly indebted, exhibits a lot of short horus
which cannot be excelled in the United
States. This is a broad assertion, but
stock men from abroad will bear it out.
Thec cattle wore raised on his farm on
the Weeping Water, where he ha 04J
acres in the highest state of cultivation.
HU cows, Poauty, ar.d White Lady,
two years old, out of imported stock,
will each weigh at least 10J pounds.
His two year old cows, .Magnolia and
Ilo'e ofSharron, and bull Exception, are
all worthy the attention of every fanner
who is seeking to improve his stock."
The sales of Burlington and Missouri

ring the month of Sept., 1871, were 17,

"Whei and How?"
Rev. Henry C. Shaw of Racine, Wis.
has accepted a call to St. Luke's Parish
and is expected to arrive in thfl city on
ThursJay for a permanent stay.
Rev. W. I. Cutter, of New York
formerly of this city, arrived last Satur
d.-ty, and will remain for a few days
His daughter, Mrs. Valiery, will return
to New York with him. Mr. Cutter is
like mci-t of men who have lived in the
wet, he has a strong desire to return
here to sjend the remainder of his days,
and we look for him again in Plattsmouth
before "many moons have passed."
A subscriber from New York says
that he takes a large number of papers,
religious, literary, political and news
papers, but that the squabble is always
to see who t-hall have the Herald first.
We hear the same complaint from differ
cnt sources, and would recommend an
extra copy to such families.
We give our readers, that portion of
Judge Lake's recent decUiou on the
Injunction Case which relates to the
payment of taxes for interest on railroad

Cass county is "ahead of the hounds"
this year oa premiums. She Las car
ried off some of the first premiums at
tho State Fair, as well as several pre
miums at the Mills County Fair. Mr.
Dill's roan mare, of Eight Mile Grove,
carried off the swwpstakes premium on
tT(ir.i JZ st the Mills County Fair, and
several other premiums were carried off
by other Cass county horses.
II. DuBoisc, Esq., of this .-ounty.
took the sweepstakes premium :it the
State Fair for the best stallion of any nge
or breed; and J. M Wood, Esq , of this
county, took the sweepstakes premium
for the best" bull of any age or breed.
They contended against not only the
finest t-totk of our own State, but against
the finest stock from the celebrated
Cowiu farm of Missouri.
Mr. Durett, of Louisville, was in tbe
city to day, for the first time in several
weeks. WTe are sorry to learn that he
has been suffering from a fractured arm
for several weeks.
The Ststa Fair closed last evening,
al'tcr a most successful season of four
days. There were a much larger num

Dr. John Black, of this city was ap
pointed Superintendent of Public In
struction for Cass county at the recent
meeting of the County Commissioners,
to fill a vacancy of some two years vaca
tion. The Dr. had not held tho office
twenty-four hours until ho had money
enough to purchase a tine two story
brick residence of Capt K. B. Murphy.
That was pretty quick work, and no one
but a democrat could have accomplished
it so soon. It may be barely possible
that the Dr. had a portion of the money
before he was appointed, but taken al
together the circumstances look suspi
cious. itrprm.icAX ward mki:ti.us.
The Republican Ward Meeting o
Plattsmouth, for tho election of dele

held next Thursday at 1 o'clock p. in.,

James O'Neill, Justice of the Peace, on
Second .Yard Meeting at the German
Third Ward Meeting at Clark &
Plummet-' s Hall. d2
Four names have already been an
nounced through the columns of the
Herald as candidates for County Super
intendent of Public Instruction at the
ensuing election. Of Mr. Patterson we
have already spoken. He announces
himself as an independent candidate,
while the others are announced as can
didates subject to the approval of the
Republican County Convention. O
course the latter are the ones with whom
we have to do as Republicans.
Rev. Mr. Foster; the first name an
'munced, is a gentleman well known to
the readers of the Herald as the author
of the series of articles in these columns
on "Our Public Schools," from which,
no doubt, some correct idea may be
formed of his ability as an educator. He
is a man of great energy, and has mani
fested much interest in the cause of edu
cation since his fir-t arrival in the State,
and has been called upon each year du
rins his residence in the State to deliver
an address before the State Teachers
Association, with which request he has
invariably compiiod. He is a gentleman
well qualified, in our opiz'on, for County
Superintendent, and one whose claims
should n:t be overlooked.
Prof. U. W. Wise has been a rest
dent of Cass County for several years,
and is noted for a profound scholar and
eminent educator. He wa3 for many
years principal of a leadiog Female
Seminary of Georgia, and his large ex
perience and mature judgment on mat
ters of education render him a very
f-uitable person for Superintendent of
Public Instruction. His name is before
the liepu Leans of Ca-s County, and
wedsubt not they will consider, candid
ly, their own interest in selecting i
Prof. J II. Dilij' is also announced
as a suitable person for the position.
HU long service in th County and City
as a teacher make each individual al
most, perhaps, as well acquainted with
. - a
his merits as we are. Jic has been a
successful teacher here for several years,
and he has the best of recommendations
rom the locality from whence he came.
He is a younger man than either of the
other applicants named, but his practical
experience in the schools of the County,
and his intimate kuowledge of our school
system gained from this experience,
gives him a peculiar claim for the con
sideration of the people. We Lave
been acquainted with Mr. Dilly since
his first advent into our County, and
have ever found him a faithful instructor
of the young.
Let the Republicans consider the
merits of each of the above candidates
before they select from them.

The Omaha Herald is evidently in
clined to doubt the defeat of tho new
Constitution, and is paving the way to
find all kinds of fault in the event the
official canvas should .show a majority
of votes in favor of the document.
