Plattsmouth, Aug. 27.
The compliments of Mrs. McMaken, to
Mr. & Mrs. MacMurphy:
These apples were raised inside the
city limits. Can the county produce
any better for the size and age of trees.
Mrs. II. C. McMakex.
We received the above, accompanied
by a basket of as handsome apples as
any we have yet been the recipients of
although of a different variety. Mrs.
M. does not mention the age of the
trees, but they certainly must be most
vigorous and healthy ones.
The only thing that bothers us
about Brown, the mind leader, is that
the Plattsuouth Scientific Society
were not there to swap theories with
Mr. Brown. We missed Professor Mc

How would it do to call a public
meeting on Saturday afternoon, at 2 p.
m., to see how many of our public spir
ited citizens will give aid to our south
ern brethren now suffering from the
plague of yellow fever. It should be
remembered that during our grasshop
per raid the Patrons of Husbandry in
the southern states contributed most
liberally to relieve our distress. And
at the same time the propriety of rais
ing a fund by subscription for the pur
pose of putting our streets, at least
Main street, and those seen most by
strangers, in Ehape, should be discussed
and a plan adopted.
Prof. Drummond left us last week
for his new field of Labor at Fremont
and the Herald never fou::d it out
in time to give him a good send off.
But his many friends did, in a picnic
down at Hessers, and afterwards as he
departed on the train. The Herald
as well as his other friends wishes him
good fortune wherever he goes. The
Fremont Tribune has the following:
Prof. W. W. Drummond is wry
much gratified at the reception he lias
received at the hands of the School
Board and citizens generally. The
Board have expressed a willingness to
co-operate with him in all of his plans
for the good of the schools.
Dr. W. S. Richey, Dentist, of Chi
cago, whose card announcing that he
would visit Plattsmouth has appeared
in the Herald for several weeks past,
completed his engagement here this
morning, having remained sometime
longer than he at first announced, ow
ing to the amount of work which
crowded in upon him. So far as we
have heard Dr. Richey has given per
fect satisfaction, and he has filled some
alarming cavities, drawn some tremen
dous teeth and fitted a good many
toothless mouths to mouthless teeth,
as his many patients can testify, and
what's more he is patient with the
sensitive ones, and equally skillful and
kind with all. The Doctor's good work
and good ways recommend him, and
that is the best recommendation.
Mr. Hobson writes us the follow
ing: A sad accident ocurred at Mt.
Pleasant on Tuesday of last week.
Milton Bates, a little boy of 9 years,
son of J. II. Bates, while clambering
over a threshing machine, his father
and the writer of this were repairing,
fell and broke his left arm, about half
way between t lie wrist and elbow. Dr.
Wallace, of Factoj yville, was called in
and the arm was set in good shape and
all seemed to be well until Thursday
evening, when mortification set in. ;
Dr. Wallace was again sent for. who, !
after working with it a while, sent to
Nebraska City for Dr.Larsh. who came
about one o'clock next day. By this
time it was plain to be seen that the
limb must come off. This operation
! occupied about twenty minute3. Both
bones were broken, and the main arte
ry ruptured. It was a trying affair for
all, but the boy seemed to bear it like
a hero, and is now getting along all
right, and will soon, we hope, be well.
We went out with Mr. Thomas,
the brown horses and others to witness
the trial of a new direct draft mower,
called the Eureka, last week. It cuts
a 6. 8, or 10 foot swath, though the 6
and 8 foot are the most used. The one
we saw was a 6 foot one. It certainly
doe3 the work astonishingly easy. Two
very light horses pulled it for an hour,
then one horse was unhooked and the
other drew it across the field; then
both horses were taken off, and two
men pulled it some distance while cut
ting, and still the man that run it was
not happy, but took off the two men
and hooked himself up alone, and
ran it a ways. One of the tests was
Elam Parmele pulling against a horse,
and we thought the machine worked
first rate then. Really and honestly it
does wonderful work, and is going to
revolutionize the mowing business.
This might have happened here:
He was a young man of a scientific
turn of mind, and it was his first night
out with a new girl. He remarked, as
he cast his eyes heavenward and re
ferred to the glory of the skies: "Such
stupendous wonders are entirely in
comprehensible; one becomes wrapped
in feelings of admiration coupled with
awe, giving one a sensation of spiritu
al elevation, a transmoerification of
earthly desires" "It must be the
fumes of the furnace," broke in the
young lady "they often affect me in
the same way. Wright's pills are good
for the complaint." She was all sym
pathy the remainder of the walk, while
he relapsed into a gloomy silence, and
Laide her good n'ght at the gate with
out an attempt to renew the conversa
tion. -Candid Admission: The chairman
of the republican central committee,
and, therefore the boss republican of
the county says in his last week's man
ifesto: Personal politics has nearly ruined
the (republican) party in this county
and in this state. Instead of the wel
fare of the masses being looked after,
and the good of the party, it has been
tne personal fortunes of individuals.
Its true, but we have to laugh at
that " bo a Republican" business.
The facts are that if there was any
thing that the chairman advised a cer
tain set invariably opposed. This
wonderful chairmanship that worried
Connor so, and that the boys were "go
ing to take away from us" has never
been anything but a hindrance.
There was never a dollar raised to
help pay any expenses, it might entail
and it often hampered our political
action, besides making us responsible
to tho people, apparently, for many
things we did not approve and had no
hand in setting up.
It occurs to us that it would be a
good idea for the City Council to pass
a law' obligating some of the property
holders of the city to take a little trip
away from home, which might open
their eyes somewhat to the ragged con
dition of the dress of Plattsmouth
streets. It may do very well to talk
about tlu newspaper keeping quiet
and say nothing about how dilapidated
our sidewalks are, and what condition
our roads are in, for fear the outside
world may hear of it, but strangers do
occasionally come to town; and their
first remarks always are: "What side
walks! I should think you would
break your necks! What sori of city
authorities have you got? and what
kind of citizens? that are contented to
let the hogs and cattle, and horses
roam at their sweet will; the weeds
crow unmolested, and the boards of
the s'dewalks lay hither and yon, with
many a gap to catch even the wary and
careful. Have they settled down con
t?nted to the dilapidation, and don't
know that other towns are going far
ahead of this, which is getting notori
ous for it's illy-kept streets?"
We guess that's what's the matter!
Start some of the citizens away and let
them have a glimpse of a good side

No other medicine in the world has
ever given such a test of its curative
qualities as Boschee's German Syrup.
In two years three million four hundred
thousand small bottles of this medicine
were distributed free of charge by
Druggists in this country to those af
flicted with Consumption, Asthma,
Croup, severe Coughs, Pneumonia, and
other disease of the Throat and Lungs,
giving the American people undeniable
proof that German Syrup will cure
them. The result has been that Drug
gists in every town and village in the
United States are recommending it to
their customers. Go to your Druggist,
and ask what they know about it. Sam

cents. Three doses will relieve any
Liver is King.
The Liver is the imperial organ of
the whole human system, as it controls
the life health and happiness of man.
When it is disturbed in its proper ac
tion, all kinds of ailments are the nat
ural result. The digestion ot food, the
movements of the heart and blood, the
action of the brain and nervous system,
are all immediately connected with the
workings of the Liver. It has been
successfully proved that Greene's Au
gust Flower is unequalled in curing all
persons afflicted with Dyspepsia or Liv
er Complaint, and all the numerous
symptoms that result from an unhealthy
thy condition of the Liver and Stom
ach. Sample bottles to try 10 cents.

Star Manufacturing Company, Fort
Madison, Iowa ; Gentlemen: The Cen
tennial rat poison, received last Mon
day. We have given three doses. On
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
nights, and we verily believe there is
not a rat or mouse left. The saw mill,
feed, custom and merchant's mills were
full of them, as were also our houses,
cooper shops, barns and hog pens.
Since giving them t he poison they have
been running round as "crazy as loons"
and the river bank is line with dead
rats, in fact it has created a terrible
commotion among them and they h;u e
all left, thanks to the "Centennial Rat
Exterminator." each box of which is
worth a twenty dollar bill. We will
see our druggists and have them send
for it. Thanks, thanks. Very respect
fully. E. M. Bhitts, & Co.
