It is believed these movements are
due to Col. Beersley's representation re

These precautions will be taken until

It is not known how the Cro originat

other down our throat all the time.
We want the people to decide .this
matter.net newspapers and politicians.
We edit a newspaper, bt think we
have sense enough to feel that if wo
were a reader of a newspaper only,
and it should constantly try to stuff
somethiag down our throat whether
or no, we should rebel. There are
some people, ia fact, qnite a number
of people in Cass County who read this
paper and put some faith in what it
says and we just ask those penons to
see that Cass County does exactly what
she pleases about delegates to the
State Convention. It looks rather im
pudent to us to have an Omaha News
paper assert day after day that Cass
County will do this or do that; and
our little friend down the street here
too, comes in with an echoing treble
and says Cass County is for Blaine or
is going to be Shernianized, &c.
Farmers of Cass County, you just
pick out your own men to represent
your own sentiments. If you want to
vote for Blaine it's nobody's business
but your own and if you want to vote
for Grant it is your business too. You
have good sense, the Herald knows,
and read the papers, and are just as
capable of judgiog for yourselves
which is the best and most available
man for President and what kind of
delegates you want to send to the Con
vention as any Omaha, Lincoln or
Plattsmouth Newspaper Editor. That's
our advice. We don't care who you
voto for, so they are level headed rep
resentative men, but we are tired of
hearing a lot of big and little politi
cal squirt3 talk and swagger round as

tion is made and it is not likely there
will be will the convention give us
some hint of the method to be pursued,
provided the Stato or the Candidates
desire to try the effect of the law in

Now is the time to look after your
fruit and shade trees, and you may iind
they need trimming, if you have not
trimmed them during list mouth. Do
not be afraid to use the pruning hook,
and use it thoroughly if you have nice
fruit, and in abundance. If you have
a forked tree, either shade or fruit tree,
cut one of the forks off, before the
wind takes them both off. And when
it is too late, you begin to say: "Oh,
oh! that is too bad. I would not have
taken five dollars for that fine tree."
It will not cost you five cents to cut
off tho branch and save the tree. But
just ujw is not the time to cut and lop
your bfedgp, unless you wish to slaugh
ter it. The Osage is very lata to start
in the spring, and it has a long time
to dry and get seasoned, before the sap
starts. It should be laid just before it
leaves out, and it may be laid success
fully after it has leaved. That black
locust of yours well, yes, I would
leave that until August, and then "lay
the ax at the root of the tree." Or. it
may do as well,- to lay the ax a foot or
two above the root, and peal the bark
down to the root.

Ed. Herald: Agreeable to prom
ise I send you this week the number
of cars of grain, stock and produce,
shipped.from this Station in 1S79, and
first two months of 18S0. It is through
the kindness of our obliging agent, Mr.
Rood, that I am enabled to redeem my
ft pr car
Making 023 cars of grain, stock and
produce shipped in the last year. There
were 331 cars of stone shipped in tho
same year, making in all 1,004 cars,
billed from this Station in 1879.
Thus far, in 18S0, there have been 3
cars of wheat, 120 cars of corn, 5 cars
of hogs, 87 cars of stone making 215
cars. There are now in store hereabout
50.000 bushels of ear corn, and 20,000
bn.3b.els of shelled corn, awaiting trans
portation, and twice that amount still
in the hands' of tho farmers, that will
come to this Station, for shipment.
This is destined to bo one of tho
best grain shipping points between
Plattsmouth and Lincoln. It is sur
rounded on all side3 with the best of
farming lands, and has good roads from
all directions. There Is very littlo land
but what can be cultivated, and soon
will be cultivated. Oar town, in 1S73,
consisted of one house; how, in 1880,
it has 84 dwellings, 2 general stores, 2
drug stores, 2 restaurants, 3 hotels,
blacksmith shops. 1 carpenter shen, 1
shoe shop, 2 saloons, 1 barber shop,
lumber yard, 2 grain elevators; and
there are now being erected l v?agon
and blacksmith shop, 2 dwellings, and
1 store building. We think this is
good showing for a torrn of its age,
taking in consideration the two graie
hopper years, and having old establish
ed towns on both sides. Our bridge
across the Platte brings the Sarpy Co
farmers to town every day. Onr busi
ncss men have their hands fall to wai
on their many customers, and it is not
an uncommon thing to have 75 loads
of corn a day, besides the wheat and
hogs. J & HJStreight are shelling out
a part of their ear corn, to make room
There is nothing more I now think
of that will interest your readers this
time. I will, in my next, giro the
amount of freight received, and the
amount of money paid out for grain
here in 1879. Gailey.

E. Herald: -News are scarce this
week, but I submit the following as
worthy of mention:
W. Harold, late mail stage driver
has left us for Leadville, Col. We wish
him a golden success.
We had a runaway last week, and in
which a wagon was rather badly dis'
counted. Team and wagon belonged
to Mr. E. Tighe.
On Sunday morning last it happily
occurred to Mr. Dan. Rockwell aad
Mis3 Ella Woodard that it would be
mutually agreeable to tie the Gordian
knot. They employed Rev. J. S. Math
er, and the ceremony was performed
in the M. E. church. We coegratulate
the young couple, and wish them all
the happiness attainable on earth.
I must notice some of our business
houses this week. Reed Bros, are dy
ing a steady, satisfactory business, the
office of Postmaster having been con
ferred on E. L. Heed, who is thorouh

public in bis new capacity, and We ate
assured, will discharge eyery duty with
honor, so far as he knows how to be
just and right.

so much as a good everyday business.

and 5 lbs 1 oz.
Though omitted heretofore, I am re
quested this week to extend the sincere
sympathy of the business men, partic
ularly, of Weeping Water to the suf
ferers at the late fire in Platt3mouth.
Will finish our review of business
houses of Weeping Water in our next.

Tke Tiper in the First Glass.
(REV. T. L. CUTLER.;
One of the latest contributions to
the literature of the bottle whieh I
have seen is the following note, writ
ten last week, and now lying before
me: "My dear Sir: I am sorry to in
form you that I have again fallen, and
am now held at Jefferson police court,
Sixth avenue and Tenth street. Will
you not, in God's name, come and pay
my fine and deliver me? Please come
at once; I am sick and almost beside
The author of the abovo distressing
note is a young man of fine family,
fine education, and attractive manners.
He was for a short time a student in a
theological seminary. Twelve hours
before he was locked up in "Jefferson
police prison," as a street drunkard he
was at Dr. Bunting's "Christian Home
for inebriates." in SeveHty-eighth street
For several weeks he had been an in
mate of that excellent institution1
Knowing how often the wretched
youth had fallen before. Dr. Bunting
secured a good situation for him to
keep him from the temptation of idl9
ness. Before sundown he had slipped
away from his new place of employ
ment, and was arrested for drunken
ness in the open street. And all this
too, in a young man of gentle, refined
mannersjnot out of his twentieth year.
What are tbo lessons of this last text
in the ever enlarging chapter of dam
nation by the dram? Several lessons.
1. Tho first one is that vi hen a drunk
ard has "reformed" cften, and fallen
quite as often, he gets used to falling.
His will grows weaker every time, like
a rope that has been broken repeated
ly and is the worse for every mending
He becomes hardened in conscience by
every blow given to conscience. His
self-respect has been wounded so often
that he grows reckless. He has brok
en so many good promises that he does
not really lelieve h imself when he signs
the pledge for the fifteenth or twenti
2. A second lessen from my fallen
friend's case is that drunkenness be
comes a horrible disease. It is as much
a self-inflicted disease as consumption
would be brougnc on &y sleeping on
the wet ground. This young man tells
me that when the appetite clutches
hold of him he is powerless to resist.
He is swept away like a chip on the
rapius ot jn lagara. xnis utter impo
tence makes him the more desperate,
Bitterly has he learned what God's
word meaneth "Whoso committeth
tin it the slave of sin." What miracle
the grace of God may yet work for my
poor friend no one can predict; but up
to (hie time no efforts, prayers, er pro
mises have been of any avail. The de
mon f appetite still hurls him into
the Urea and into the flood; and when
cast out he returns again with seven
other evil spirits, and the last state of
the man is worse than the first.
. iut mere teas a time when my
friend A was a sober boy, untainted
with the cup. When he let it alone he
was safe. He saw his father drink
and began to tamper. His first glass
opened perdition to hlco. Touching
that first glass was like touching a vie
tim of yellow fever; it was fatal. That
last dram which sent him into a po
lice cell was but the last drop of his
first drink. Every day I see God's
truth written in mere and more vivid
lines of fire on the sky "Look net on
the wine when it is red; for at the last
it biteth liko an adder and stingeth
like a viper." Total abstinence is the
only gospel of salvation from the
bottle. We have got to preach it
from our pulpits, and teach it to our
Sunday-Schools, and enforce it in our
homes that the viper lios coiled up in
the first glass.
