Wagons and foot passenger walks have been built. Nebraska City is a beautiful place and is situated in a country where the soil is of the richest description. Otoe County produces more corn than all of the New England states combined. Numerous orchards are in the vicinity containing from 10 to 100 acres planted with fruit trees. The United States courthouse, constructed by the government at a cost of $125,000, is said to be the handsomest federal building in the state. The State Institute for the Blind, is a large and costly building, with accommodations for nearly 1,000 persons, The water-works system of the city cost $200,000.

A beautiful public park valued at $100,000, was presented to the city by Hon. J. Sterling Morton. Paved streets lighted by gas, horse-car lines, free mail delivery and the other conveniences of modern city life are here enjoyed.

The live stock and packing interests are of great importance to the commercial and industrial welfare of the city. In addition to its already great facilities for handling live stock, the Union Stock Yards Co, is about to enlarge its yards and make other improvements. The Nebraska City Packing Co. is about to add to its valuable plant two ice manufacturing machines, with a capacity of 100 tons each. The Chicago Packing & Provision Co. has a valuable plant with a large capacity. These establishments do an immense business, and give employment to a large number of persons. The Nebraska Canning Co., with a capital of $20,000 and capacity of 400,000 cans, employ about 50 hands. The cooper shops connected with the packing houses and the Tank Line Co. have a considerable number of men employed. The Nebraska Distilling Co. have recently added large cattle sheds to their improvements, and are about to resume operations. The Nebraska Iron Works, five brick manufactories, two implement factories, several flour and cereal mills, grain elevators, cigar factories and other industries give employment to many.

The financial transactions are conducted through the Merchants National and the Nebraska City banks. The principal hotels are the Grand Pacific, the Morton and the Thorp House, under the management of their accommodating hosts. Two theatres and a splendid $75,000 opera house afford amusements to the citizens. In addition to the fine public schools there are two good private institutions, Rev. F.M. Carys Academy, and Academy of Anunciation. The churches of the city are Catholic, Episcopal, Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Christian, and German Evangelical. The press of the city is represented by the Nebraska City News, the Press, the Stockman, the Democrat, and the Zeilung. Nearly all of the secret orders and benevolent societies have organizations.
