We have often observed that a
newspaper may praise a man over and
over and notice him for a dozen years,
and sometime when it is busy and
honestly forgets some little thing he
has done or justly criticizes some
thing he has left undone, how mad the
man gets, never remembering the
years of kindness, the many friendly
notices; but only remembering the one
omission or the one unfriendly criti
cism. Xow, we wish to return good
for evil, and as we have said the coun
cil did not fix the streets and clean
things up as well as they might, some
times, when they do do a handsome
thing we want to give them all praise
deserved. So we are very miiih
pleased with our Christmas sidewalk
and wish you a happy happy Xew
Year in return.

By Sir. and Miss Loder.
Mr. an 1 Miss Loder gave us one
of the best little entertainments wo
have had, at the Presbyterian church,
Thursday evening. Mr. Loder's decla
mations were Tery fine and if they
hadn't "run it into Politics" (a'ht Setut-
tore) it would have been excellent.
Miss Loder hits a beautiful mobile
face. Her hair was combed down
pla:n on each side of her forehead and
she looked so much like the girls we
used to know, that we fell in love
with her at once. It looked so pure
and honest after the frizzes and
"bangs' of the period. If young ladies
could just see themselves as others
see them, never a bang would be hung
We have often thought if we had a
female acquaintance that was bound
for "his Majesty's" region below and it
was our duty to prepare her for the
journey, we would bang her hair, put
a new fangled hat on one side of her
head, and a two foot wide circingle
round her waist and start her on the
Aside from the simplicity of Miss
Loder's costume her recitations show
ed more than ordinary ability and if
she adopts that line certainly has the
prospect of future success before her.
The duett of Mr. Marsland and Mr.
Petlee was very fine, in fact the sing
ing was excellent as well as the rest
of the entertainment. Both gentle
men have beautiful voices and they
blend in great harmony.
The Only Exclusive Wall Paper Store
Mr. C. R. Dovey has opened a new
place over Baker tfc Co.'s Store where
will be found a varied stock of Wall
paier with patterns and styles much
liner and handsomer than anything
seen here before.
Dovey also keeps Window Shades
and Painters' Supplies, and does all
kinds of House, Sigr and Ornamental
painting, and none but the best work
men are kept in his employ.
Among the rooms Mr. Dovey has
finished thin season are those of Mr.
llerold over his new store which are
two of the haudsoniest rootss in the
The designing and decorating are in
the very best taste, and will certainly
compare favorably with aiy we have
seen any where.
The woodwork is grained in French
walnut rich and dark in color. The
naner is hung after Eastlake stvle with
a Hue Dado and Frieze and gilt mould
ings to correspond. The rooms are
worth seeing and persons can judge
Mr. Dovey's own rooms contain
many fine samples of paper hangings
really artistic. In short he can do you
any kind of work in Knishing a room
that you want, and is open for busi
ness this spring and summer. Give
him a call aud examine for yourself.
A New Tears' Statement.
Ed. Herald: The industrial year
of 1880 is fast nearing a close, will
you have the kindness to permit me
the'use of your valuable paper to ex
press many thanks to ray- numerous
patrons for their liberal support to
maintain our home manufacturing in
During the year 1830 the amount
paid for cigar making, tobacco strip
ping, packing. &c, was $3380.00, which
was paid by the people of Plattsmouth
and vicinity. But if these people had
paid this same money to these eastern
infected cigar firms referred to in the
Scientific American of Xov. 13, 1880,
no part of it would the Plattsmouth
people ever see again. Why not to
a certain extent consider yourself a
partner in the firm of Peppuberg and
enjoy a portion of the profits, put in
your influeuce as well as jour trade.
and when ru send customers to us
we will see that our manufacture shail
prove satisfactory to them.
During my visit tt Xew York in
Xov. last, I purchased at two of the
most reliable houses the choicest Leaf
Tobaico, sufficient for my trade for
1881 ; this alone is a guarantee to en
able me to supply the Xebraska trade
with uniform, finest quality aromat
ic cigars, such as will surety be most
appreciated by dealers and consumers
of the tobacco weed.
Thanking my friends and patrons
for their liberal support and inviting
their kind patronage in the future and
wishing all a happy and prosperous
Xew Year, Years for square dealing
and Home Industries.

Christmas Eve Doings at the Tarlous
The Sunday School children enjoyed
high holiday on Christmas Eve. At
the Baptist Church a heavily laden
tree held presents for over eighty chil
dren, and Santa Claus distributed
them to the happy little ones who be
held him with wondering eyes.
At the Christian Church there was
another tree, and strange to say, San
ta Claus was there too. But you
know the old lellow must have learned
the secret of being in many places at
once, else how cotild he get around all
over the globe to recompense all the
little children and big ones too, who
look for him at Christmas tide.
The Episcopal Sunday School had
supper, with candy bags, in the base
ment of the Church where tliey en
joyed themselves for an hour or two
and then adjourned to the Church
proper and sang Christmas carols.
At the Methodist Church was still
another tree, and another house full of
happy children. We lost track of old
Santa Claus and don't know whether
he got round there or not, but no
doubt he did and the happy children
all went home to dream of jolly old
St. Xiehtdas and his eight tiny rein
deer, whi lives in the frosty Xorth
lanti anti who at the cnristmas tide,
sweeps down upon us with his loads
of toys, his furry coat and his jolly
phiz, and mysteriously comes down the
chimney to till the stockings hanging
there, or else presides over his special
delight, some Christmas tree.
Long may the happy memories, the
pleasant feelings and the kindly inter
change of interests of which Santa
Claus is symbolic, reign among us and
creeping into the children's hearts
make them better men and women, to
help their fellow men, not only at
Christmas tide, but through all the
seasons as thev come.
