Plattsmouth, Neb.
Died : At her residence, near Ash
land, on Friday evening, July 5th, 1872,
Elizabeth, wife of Frank Mills, aged
20 years.
The remains were brought to this city
for interment, and were met at the De
pot by the friends of the family, and es
corted to the Congregational church,
where the funeral service was preached
by Elder Alton of the Christian Church.
The deceased leaves a husband and a
large circle of friends to mourn her loss.
Somebody got married in Plattsmouth
two or three weeks ago, and last night
the boys went to ''chiv-a-ree" them as it
was called, they did their best, and after
it was all over learned the young couple
were absent from the house, and all

Impartial Journalism. Some of
our out of-town friends, when they can
not afford to be bold, must content them
selves with being ingenious. .
One of them has put a cut of each,
Grant and Greeley side by side in paral
lel columns, and prints under them,
"Here they are, you pay your
money and you take your choice." The
columns are filled out with favorable and
unfavorable statements concerning the
candidates. The publisher was in a
quandary on account of having about an
equal number of Grant and Greeley sub
scribers. Dr. Chapman's Baking Powder and
Flavoring Extracts are favorites, to all
who try them. 14d&wlw
Local editing must be jolly in Salem,
Washington county, N. Y. The editor
of the iV3 recently received the follow
ing delightful missive : "Youm fellers
want to keep us fellers names out of
your paper else youm will get your d d
snoot busted. This is bizziness."
The 'bus ran over a pig on Main street
this morning, and the pig was bus-ted,
sure enough. Could'nt that same 'bus
take a circuitous route through the city
and bus-t a few more of the same
species? It would relieve us of an in
tolerable nuisance.

Editor received a handsome little note,
sayiDg ' "Would we come out to Weep-
tif . n ,
ing ater on tne rourtn, ana nave a
good dinner and make a little speech."
We answered in our usual verbose and
diffusive style, "Dinner, yes; speech,
NO, we'll come."
To make it sociable we proposed to
some friends to go along. They said
"yes," and on Saturday before the day
wc (friends and us, you know), marched
up to the big Brick Livery Stable and
opened fire
"Keep a livery here?" "Yes."
"Got a nice pair of horses and a
carriage to let?"
"Oh, Yes. Hook 'em right up
"Don't want 'em now, want them on
the fourth, to go to Weeping Water."
"Big carriage let for that day, sir."
"Oh well, let us havo the little carriage
"Little carriage spoke for, Sir."
"Ah, a couple of buggies will do then,
two horse buggies.'"
"Two horse buggies all engaged that
"Give us one horse then, a little horse
and a small buggy."
"Little horse and small buggy gone
too. Come too late for the Fourth, Sir."
"Say, Mister, havn't you a little
mule we could ride out then?"
"Nary mule."
"Not a little Goat even?"
"Nary Goat."
"Say Mister won't you take some
thing?" another of 'em.
Strong in our determination to go to
Weeping Water, we moseyed down to
another barn, and thinking to be impos
ing this time, we threw back our coat
and our shoulders as far as possible so
as to get as much frontage to view as our
corpus allows of, and said :
"Ahem ! Keep a Livery Stable?"
"Got any hosses and things to let?"
' Oh, yes. Everything."
"You the proprietor?"
"Yes, Shannon's my name."
"Well, Mr. Shannon, (pompously)we
want, ahem ! an Omnibus and six of
your best horses on the morning of the
Fourth of July next, to go to Weeping
Water to dine, and answer some toasts
and things, Got it?"
"Omnibus and six horses !. Never
heard of such a thing in a Livery Stable.
No, havn't got it ; ain't on it the Om
nibus." Pointing triumphantly to his card in
our paper, we said, "Don't you adver
tise horses and vehicles of all kinds, and
isn't an Omnibus a vehicle of all kinds?
They say one never gets full, and we
want something that won't get 'full' on
the Fourth."
"I'll empty yov," eays Shannon, "if
you don't quit chaffin' me."
That cooled us off, and taking our
thumbs out of our vest, we said, very
meekly, "give us a carriage and a pair
of horses then."
"Can't do it, engaged."
"Pair of horse3 and a buggy? "
"All engaged."
"One horse and a cart?"
"Got none."
"Saddle horse?"
"All out."
"Little mule?"
"Never keep 'fem."
"Say, Mister, hav'nt you got a small
Jackass we could ride?"
"Discharged the last this morning
got drunk. Look here, Mac, everything
in the barn is engaged for the Fourth,
and if mo and the old woman could a'
worked double, 'spect we'd be engaged
too ; but I'll tell you what I'll do let's
take a drink."
On the eve of the Fourth a friend
came to us and said "Dick" Streight, a
fine straight haired young man, had a
rig," and we could get it a paTty of
us. it was a nice, new, rea, pretty,
"Express wagon," all fresh painted, and
a3 handsome as a country gal with a new
cali'kcr dress and check apron. Wo
ordered him to buy it (for that day) and
he did.
The morning of the Fourth rose clear
and cloudless and so did we. The Ex
press wagon came round ia good season
in good 6tyle. It had Mete(o)rs chain
lightning rods and safety piyups on one
side, in big letters, and a picture of the
Buck-Eye Mower, and Horace Greeley
plowing potatoes in a cornfield with a
Methodist Elder yoked to a "Gordon
Jobber" with two "shooting sticks" for
handles, on the other.
Three beautiful -ladies, a Mike, a
Mac, a Dutchman, Soldier and bull whack
er comprised our outfit and a more gal-lus
and interesting party of emigrants never
left the city of Plattsmouth to cross the
Great American Desert, on a visit to the
land of the no-shoot-'ems.
No sooner had we reached the open
prairie, than the very spirit of '76, or
old Beeswax himself seemed to descend
on the party. We had no time to thiuk
of the "gal we left behind us." for the
gal we had with us demanded all our
attention. The crackers had been espe
cially ordered for the occasion, and
Mike and her went to work. First they
set the horses sailing, and the driver
swearing tcoe ; then fired the straw in the
wagon, burnt three holes in the umbrella
to let the sun in, several in the girls
dresses, and turned Mike's white Gree
ley hat into a dirty looking cullender, to
strain a Fourth of July jam through.
Lastly, it was" proposed to hold one in
their teeth and' see what it' would do,
We saw. Mike's flashed in the pan, but
the other one went eff and scorched the

and down on the heads of rye like black

All this took some time to do, if it
does not take long to read, and by the
time we had recovered from the fire
crackers, we passed Eight Mile Grove,
where everybody except our folks seemed
to have come. Two miles or more of
beautiful road through the woods,
where the umbrella's had to be closed,
across the prairie, and almost before we
knew it we were at Weeping Wat:rand

Here we pause, so did all the rest for

before the storm. If the Weeping
Water folks do not know hew to get up
a dinner in the woods nobody's folks do.
Mr. Reed kindly invited us to (n)boar2
with him while we stopped there and
we did so, but invitations showered upon
us from all quarters besides. We could
not divide ourselves up, nor eat only so
much. Our company did the best they
could at Mr. Reed's table, and then,
having a soldier along, they executed a
flank movement that brought them up
at Mr. Pollard's boards where they ate
another Fourth of J uly, and felt so inde
pendent about it that ourselves and the
driver had to choke 'em off or else there
would be no eatables iu Weeping Water

E. T. Noxon, the Dep. Grange master,
called on the Herald. In answer to a
question of how many Greeley men there
were in Seward county? he answered
that, "there might be about one voter
in fifty for Greeley."
