A PENCIL SKETCH OF THE TOWN.
THE PAST AND PRESENT IN CON
TRAST. RpTiew of Cosiness Interests.
Il.ilf a eehtury at), the spirit of en
terprise and speculation was as active
as now, but the results were not quite so
rapid or abundant, owinp, in the main.
.o the lack of Bitpeiior industrial ap
pliances and ready modes of inter
communication between distant points.
Men Were then very much the same a
now; and, undoubtedly, the pioneer of
thirty years a:?o was animated by
neatly the same motives that actuate
the speculator in towns and cities of
the present day ; that is, the ends to be
accomplished are or were the same.
Motives prompt to action, and towns,
like all things conditioned by human
agency, are but embodied ideas. The
origin or growth of each takes form
according to one or more of the con
ditionating expressions of Mature. One
is founded where the channels of com
merce converge and a metropolis is the
result; another is built with refeience
to healing springs and bracing atmos
pheres, and a Saratoga is the direct
oulgrowth. One is the result of ex
tensive mining or industrial iuteres'.s,
another the direct outgrowth of supe
rior agriculuual advantages.
A QUABTEli OF A CENTURY AGO,
where now stands the enterprising
citv of Plattsmouth, was an unim
proved waste, inhabited only by the
wild beasts and wandering bands of
red men. The tall piairie grass, or
tangled brushwood, alone occupied the
sites of residences and business thor
oughfares of to-day, and there was
nothing here per se, to create or sus
tain a towu.
This was t lie primitive condition of
the pioneer city of Xebraska ; but
step by step the btst vest ice of the
primitive has been removed, and where
but a brief period ago all was as na
ture had formed ir, s free and wild as
the time when the stars chanted their
melodious anthems at nature's dawn,
all, all is changed.
The location of a capital or county
seat is the signal for the accumulation
of people and the augmentation of
business enterprise. The settlement
of all new countries is attended with
a rapid influx of population, and the
location and growth of towns and
cities become a necessity. This is tho
case of our picturesque city, designated
but twenty-live years ago as the seat
of justice of Cass county. It partakes
not of anyone of t he foregoing ele
ments, but is rather the outgrowth of a
combination of the factors of civilzed
promulgation above alluded to.
The advancement of Plattsmouth
has been constant, and presents noth
ing really remarkable in the achieve
ments of bygone years.
The changes from the primitive to
the developed state have been contin
ual ; and, where but a few short years
ago the dusky sons of the plain roamed
in unrestrained freedom, and basked
in the sunshine of nature's broad do
main, we now behold in the cultivated
Geld the teel-bouud pathway of the
" Iron Horse," the towering city, harvest-laden
meadows and wheatrields,
The blessing of our hardy grain.
Our wealth ot golden corn."
PLATTSMOrTII OF TO-DAY
is an enterprising city, of about three
thousand inhabitants; a place whose
business transactions readily outweigh
any speculative or ephemeral appear
ance. It is situated among the bluffs
of the Missouri, and commands the
trade of one of the finest agricultural
regions of Nebraska, and the bracing
climate and fertile acres have contrib
uted to make Cass county a land of
promise. Although the location is
such as to obstruct the view of the
town in its entirety, yet the pltasant
avenues, handsome residences, and
above all a generous and kind-hearted
people, render the place pleasing and
attractive. A stroll throughout the
city discloses many beautiful and even
costly dwellings, while nearly all are
attractive. Upon the business thor
oughfares, elegant and substantial
brick blocks are taking the place of
the primitive wooden structures, and
an air of thrift and improvement is
SCHOOLS AND CHVRCHE8
are usually regarded as an index of
the character of the people and town.
A? regards Plattsmouth, a comparison
with other towns and cities of the
the West is productive of good results.
The people are enterprising and in
dustrious and encourage those insti
tutions that aid in inaintaing a good
intellectual and moral status of socie
ty. The public schools are in a flour
ishing condition, and the interest man
ifested in the cause of education re
flects great credit upon the city. We
find here the largest and most complete
set of apparatus in any ef the Nebras
ka towns The four-story High School
building is an elegant structure, and.
in a word abundant facilities have
been provided for giving to each child
the elements of a good English educa
tion. Under the efficient supervision
of Prof. J. V. Love there is no reason
why the schools of Plattsmouth should
not command the respect and confi
dence of the entire town and county.
The several church edifices are in
keeping with our educational interests,
affording a seating capacity for the en
tire population of the city.
AS A GRAIN AND LIVE STOCK MARKET,
Plattsmouth ranks among the best in
Nebraska is pre-eminently an agri
cultural State, and her farm products,
both as regards quality and quntity.
will compare favorably with those of
older States; and as Cas3 county is al
ready noted for the extent of its agri
cultural products, the great bulk of
which are marketed at Plattsmouth,
its importance as a grain market will
be readly observed.
The industrial or manufacturing in
terests of a community, are as a rule,
of leading importance ; and in the cas.
of Plattsmouth, as worthy of foremost
mention, we first allude to the
foundry; and machine shop of JOHN
This establishment, one of the best
equipped of its class in Nebraska, was
inaugurated about a years ago, anu
has constantly grown in degree of im
portance ever since. It is well provid
ed with first class iron lathes, planers,
diil!s. and in fact everything that per
tains to a first class foundry and ma
chine shop. The establishment has
been constructed with a viT to the
business, having a commodious engine
and machine room, foundry room, etc.
Mr. W is prepared for all kinds of work
from thesimplest piece of repairing, to
tho production complete of a s:eam
engine. For repairing farm machinery
of all kinds his facilities are unexcell
ed.' lie charges nothing for models
and farmers should always apply to
Mr. Wayman for repairs, before going
lo other towns, since money will there
by be saved to t lie farmer as well as
encourage home industries. The pro
prietor i-t an experienced, practical
man and is entitled to much credit for
the energy manifested in seeming to
the city so valuable a feature in busi
Pi. ATTSMOUTII MI LI S
C. Helsel, proprietor, is a feature of
leading importance as regards the in
dustiial interest of Plattsmouth, and
is e Uitled to a foremost place in this
review of the city. This enterprise
was inaugurated 22 years ago, and is
not only the oldest in Cass county, but
the pioneer mill of Nebraska. It has
ever maintained a foremost place in
matters of trade, as well as in pubiic
esteem, having acheived a reputation
at home and abroad, second to no other
in this section of the state. Notwith
standing the fact that the mill has
been in operation so many years, it is
to-day as modern in all its appoint
ments and equipments, as th newest,
and the facilities for doing business
equal to any simular concern in the
wetern country. The building is a
.substantial structure, supplied with
two run of burs, and containing a ca
pacity for grinding about 400 bushels
everv 24 hours. Merchant, custom and
exchange business are comprised in
the function of the establishment, and
its patronage is such as to keep it con
stantly running. In the way of ma
chinery, everything has been adopted
calculated to enhance or improve the
process ot flour making . Mr. Heisei
the proprietor is a man of large exper
ience in the business, and nothing is
lacking in either equipment or man-ag-n
cnt; and the excellent and in
creasing reputation of the enterprise,
indicates more fully the above facts,
than anything that might le offered.
The mill is conveniently located; is an
old "land mark" in the business affairs
of Cass county, and a most worthy fea
ture of Plattsmouth.
A PIONEER MECHANIC
of the city 's II. Howland, who has
been identified with the in
dustrial interests of the place for 21
years, and who is a first-class wagon
maker, doubtless has no superior in
the western country. The establish
ment in question is held in high repute
for durable and artistic workmanship.
The best of material in the hands of
one possessed of that true mechanical
genius which is necessary to secure
beauty and durability, gives a product
sought by the best class of patrons,
and the public readily accord such
abilities to the gentleman in question.
This s.:op is fully equipped with the
necessary appliances for the successful
prosecution of the business. All kinds
of repairing and general job work in
either iron or wood, here receive
prompt attention, and whether in new
work or in reparing there is the same
manifestation of the adage 'whatever is
woith doing is worth doing well." We
notice here the newly patented Saladee
Triple Spring Road Wagon, which is
undoubtedly an article of unusual
merit, and worthy of investigation by
these desiring a first class buggy or
Location on Corner of Cih and Vine
MALDANER & HERRMANN
is the style of one of our leading bus
iness houses, inaugurated five vears
ago, and purchased by the present firm
one year since. Here we find a store
well filled with goods, embracing a
large and select stock of dry goods,
groceries, boots, shoes, etc. To no
house in the place do the public accord
a more encouraging patronage, and the
location in Fitzgerald's elegant three'
story brick bloc k, is one of the most
desirable in the city.' In matters of
trade this house has ever occupied a
leadins position, and the business'
transactions rank among the most ex
tensive in the nlace. In all depart
ments the stock is very complete, the
goods are unexcelled in quality and
the prices below competition. Fair
and honorable in business transactions
and possessed of a large business ex
perience, Maldaner & Ilarrmann have
realized a constantly increasing trade:
as the reward of their increasing
efforts in behalf of patrons and th
COFECTIONERY, RESTAURANT, &C.
In this line the establishment br
John Leach is entitled to a prominent
place and due notice of the same will
be appropos to this occasion. Mr. L;,'
resident of our town for fifteen years;
commenced his present business" five
years ago, and occupies a worthy arc
in the business affairs of Plattsmouth.
We find him in a good shape for doing
business, supplied with a good stdcl ot
confectionery, fruits, baker's goods,
etc. In the restaurant department,
meals or lunches are served in the
most approved manner; nothing is
lacking in stock or appointment that
may be necessary to character such
an enterprise, and to say thst it has
become an important feature of the
town is but doing justice to a popular
enterprise, and one deserving of in
THE ART OF PIIOTOQRAritY
when properly cultivated, assumes an
importance in the business interests
of any community of the highest char
acter, and should be encouraged and
sustained, Mr. V. V. Lenard, who en
joys an extended reputatidif itt a pho
tographic artist, has been catering to
the artistic tasts of the people of Platts
mouth for the past nine years, and
it is certainly gratifying to note that
his offorts are being appreciated. Mr.
Leonard is possessed of long practical
experience, and his facil ties are excel
lent for the prosecution of anything
pertaining to the business, and his
work in photography, ink, oil or water
colors shows evidence of superior skill
The work on exhibition heie shows
that correct artistic geniusY which is
necessary to give expfrss'dn and in
dividuality to his productions. Mr. L
evidently keeps posted in all the im
provements in art matters that are
brought out from time to time, the best
of which are at once adorned and plac-
d in execution. An excellent stock of
frames is observed, and to all lovers of
the beautiful in art, we cheerfully
commend t'us establishment.
A LEADING FEA'TCRE
in the business interest of Plattsmouth
is the 13oot and Shoe establishment of
Peter Merges. This house. tiie leading
feature of its class, is well and favor
abN knoAii, and there are few of the
provincial cities of the co-Jntry that
can boast of an establishment of this
particular class; where a showing so
extensive and complete is observed.
Here is a salesroom well filled with a
stock of boots and shoes that would
grace the business circles of our larger
cities. The Ptock is not only large but
replete with everything that pertains
to a u.st class trade. The goods have
been selected with the utmost care,
from the best manufactories in the
country, and whether in coarse or fine
goods, the opportunity to the purchas
er is exceedingly desirable. Mr. Mer
ges is possessed of large experience in
the shoe trade and in the inauguration
ot his present business has borne in
mind the fact that a just appreciation
of the rights of patrons is promotive
of true self interest. Several skilled
workmen are constantly employed in
making stock to order. We notice
here some stock that has taken the
sweepstakes at several State Fairs;
and to persons seeking first class goods
we heartily commend this establish
The sale of the celebrated Singer
ami ITowe sewiner machines is also an
item of importance. Location d' tT6br
west of Saunder's House.
In this connection we rtlliide to the
establishment of A. Schlegel & Bio.,
manufacturers of fine cig tis and deal
ersin fancy smokers. articles, smoking
and chewing tobacco. A. Schlegel &
Bro. have been engaged in their pres
ent business for about six months, and
have already secured a foothold in bu
siness matters of the most permanent

a feature in which many of the coun
try towns are wanting, Plattsmouth
excels. Many of the larger cities can
not boast of hotel accommodations of
a superior class. First and foremost
upon the list, is the Saunders House,
J. S. Gregory, proprietor. To the tiav
eler or stranger the hotel is the first
place of interest on entering a town,
and ofiimes becomes an index or re
flector of the place Where located
that is, a town in many instances is
judged by the character and extent of
its hotel accom-.odations. As regards
Plattsmouth, the comparison is pro
ductive of the most gratifying results.
The Saunders House the l&ading ho

cated, the rooms large and airy, neatly
and comfortably furnished, and from
cellar to attic is fhe embodiment of all
that is desirable in such an establish
ment. The flatly ,; bill of fare " unex

genial, pleasant gentleman, whose kind
and generous attention to guests and
patrons ha- served greatly to secure an
increased proportion of the public

room, appliances and above all the
skilled workmen of a first class factory.
The proprietor studiously labors to
produce nothing but work of the best
quality; in the construction of wagons
and buggies, only the best iron and
timber are used, and as proof positive
of the superiority of the articles made
here, we would state that in spite of
"hard times" a growing patronage is
realized. People desire to have some
thing reliable, and it is to their interest
to patronize a reliable workman at
home rather than to purchase imported
good 8 which were made "to sell" and
which are constantly "a sell" when
Mr. S. also gives special attention to
the repairing of buggies wagons and
carriages, as well as all kinds of agri
cultural implements, and in a word, we
find here the embodiment of a most ne
cessary and commendable interest, and
one worthy of increased success.

quality to any house in Cass County,
the appointments and arrangements of
the store indicate taste as well as ex
perience upon the part of th mana

Main and 5th Streets is very desirable,
and the establishment offers facilities
in matters of trade equal to similar
concerns of large cities. Good goods,
low prices, and fair and honorable deal
ings are elements lri the transaction
of business bound to win in pnslin fa
vour, and the system in the present in
stance has been no departure from the
general rule. The Hry Goods interests
of Plattsmouth are unusually well rep
