Nemaha City did pretty well af
ter all at the railroad election last
Saturday. A very respectable. major
ity but atlil we contend there ought j
not to have been a siugle vote against
it down there.
Brownville precinct cast 329 votes ;
311 for bonds, 18 against, and 1 that
did not count either way, leaving a
majority of -291 for the proposition.
We congratulate Brownville.
Washington precinct cast 71 votes;
1 for and 70 against.
San Deroin cast 44 votes ; 37 for and
7 against. Majority for bonds, 30.
Aspinwall cast OS votes ; 49 for and
49 against bonds. Honors are easy,
London cast 87 votes ; 11 for and 76
against. Majority against bonds, 65.
Nemaha City cast 100 votes; 63 for
37 against. Nemaha gives 26 majori
ty for the proposition.
" Peru cast 163 votes ; 2 for bonds and
161 against. Majority against, 159.
That's a deadener.
Glen Rock cast 115 votes against the
proposition and "nary one" for it.
Bedford cast 45 votes ; 2 for and 43
against bonds. Is that so? Why
where was Church Howe?
Lafayette cast 141, all against bonds.
That's what might be considered
Island cast 10 votes: 2 for and 8

Benton cast 113 votes; unanimously
Douglas cast S6 votes ; 7 for and 79

And wasn't that bond proposition
scooped? There were 1402 votes cast
in the county ; 917 were cast against
the proposition and 4S5 for it, leaving
a majority in the county against the
proposition of 432.

to tell how we enjoy it. It would be

I am aware that by frequently dis
appointing those citizens of Brown
ville who took interest in my attempt
to sing for them during the month of
November, I have, in a measure, lost
my claims on their forbearance.
I wish to plead that I made the ap
pointments in good faith, thinking
that my health would surely permit
me to fulfill them. But the return of
my strength, after the fever was over,
was so unexpectedly slow, that I was
not able to give a public entertain

which was my first effort since the 9th
day of October. I have now fully re

pride and joy he will not forget that

pretty, amiabie wife, and now this son
which is given them, has filled his
cup of happiness to overflowing.
