Mr. Lalor, the Engineer of the
B. & M. in Iowa, has been here several
weeks surveying on both banks of the
Missouri river. The surveys are very
accurate and the computations as to
feasibility of building a bridge here
will be very fine. It really looks like
business this time and we think be
fore many months roll round Platts
mouth can gratify its eyes with the
sight of material on the ground for
the great Missouri River bridge so long
Mr. E; D. Stone a lawyer from Mil
wauke, Wis., has lately settled among
us. He will otnee with D. If. Wheel

good testimonials and letters from
friends the IIkkald is acquainted
wi;h. We hope he may find Platts
mouth a good place, to stop at and
that he may be as successful in 1 i:
piofe sion as his heart cou'.d desire.
One thing certain he can't find any
harder lawyer here, if names go fir
Jas. Hall's stable was blown over
in the gale of the 20th and seven hors

under the stable hiving refused to
leave his team when the storm blew
up. He lay down beside a big mare
and when he saw daylight through an
opening crawled to it and came out un
harmed. Mr. Wettencamp reports his
wind mill blown to atoms and other
damages such as wind mills blown over

Hon. S. M. Kirkpatrick called on
the IIlualu Monday, and we had quite
achat. Mr. Kirkpatrick is a man of
great information, and his conversa
tion is always worth attending to. The
Herald is pleased to have him call,
and pleased to hear his opinions on
matters and things, though often not
agreeing with him. Among other things
he informs us that Mr. James Boyd re
ported the article in our constitut'on
on railroad matters, considered so un
favorable by the Omaha Herald and
Republican. Mr. K. thinks if this sec
tion will drive all roads out of Nebras
ka so good a democrat as Dr. Miller
ought to have let Mr. Boyd, who is also a
good democrat, know of it before he
reported favorably on such a measure.
We saw a small boy taking his
first barefoot walk yesterday. While
he could go in the grass it was glorious
fun and he pranced and danced and
surveyed those little feet in high glee.
Then he started up the hill walking
rather more gingerlybut getting up at
last he played around the hillside for
a little while and then essayed to come
home. The around had grown hot and
his feet had begun to feel the effect
of previous roughnesses. More slowly
he took each successive step, and at
last, tlie crosswalk reached he paused
took another step, sought a smooth
pl;:ce took one more and bent over,
twisted his feet to one side, took
another and gave vent to a little bit of
aery; took one more, winced, twisted,
tried it again and gave a little larger
cry, which grew louder at each success
ive step until the end of the cross-walk
leached it had deepened into his full
capacity for roaring. Then he made a
desperate dash for the gate a few steps
off, endeavoring to make the sides of
his feet do duty for the soles, and dis
appeared to tell all his woes to mamma.
We turned to our desk remembering
the days when to go barefoot was our
greatest delight ;md how we had to
hide our shoes and stockings in the
bushes on our way to school and put
them on again before we got in sight
of home, in order to obtain the coveted

The Sportsmen's Club had a grand

Jones on 2d, and Chapman and
OTtourke 3d, and Dr. Jones got away
with the red ribbon.
In the afternoon all the Masons and

At Louisville our old time friend
Prof. Martindale acted as Master of
Ceremonies, Kev.Mr. Diffenbacker was
the Orator of the day. Boss printer,
Carl Seeley, read the "Declaration"
and they had a good time generally.
The brass band of Louisville and the
singers both deserved great praise. The
day was fine and when we left the
Louisvilleans they w ere putting in the
happiest kind of n old fashioned
fourth. The Hekald met an old
friend Mr. Trueman Hall out there for
the first time in years; also Co. Com
missioner Ramsey, with whom we
shook hands across the bloody chasm,
in sight of the stars and stripes

and Cap. Hoover what's the matter.

the good old fashioned style, out doors
in the woods, by Sunday Schools. Rev.

A sister of Mrs. Jno. Waterman has
sent our Mrs. Waterman some very
handsome Magnolia blossoms, from
southern Alabama. The magnolia tree
grows to the height of 100 feet, and the
flowers in full bloom, sometimes mea
sure 0 inches across. The leaves all
fall when the llowers bloom, which at
first thought would seem strange, but
when we reileci that the leaves are of
ten IS inches lo:g. wo see that they
ought to fall in order that we may see
the llower. A magnolia tree in full
bloom is one of the grandest sights in
the world to those unaccustomed to
their beauty, size and fragrance. When
the Spaniards first landed at Florida
the magnolias were out in their grand
eur, and they named it Florida the
land of Flowers.
In our climate we can only put the
buds in water and get a partial devel
opment of the magnificent ll.iwer.

a report in the form of an ordinance

ment that it bo taken up a section at a
time and disposed of. He was opposed
to the ordinance in its present form,
and thought our levies to high for
some of the funds at least, and read
letters from Omaha, Neb. City and
Lincoln, showing that their levies did
not exceed from 20 to 30 mills on the
dollar all told while. this ordinance
called for a levy of 4 mills on the dol
lar. Councilman Vallery made a few re
marks sustaining Dovey's reviews.
Councilman Cushing and Wells were
in favor of passing the ordinance as
reported, arguing that the city liabili
ties could r.ot be met with any less val
uation or levy.
The vote was then taken on the
amendment as follows yeas, Dovey,
