It is
Fittingly Cele !jr;.t i ly
All the
Schools of the City.
lJie legislature two years ago
made the 22tid of April a legal holi
day and named it Arbor Day. that it
might be utilized by all Nebrnskaus
as a rlay to be especially devoted to
tree planting.
Our public schools have for some
years taken notice of the dar an
added very materially to the beauty
of the school grounds in the city by
the planting of trees; but this year
the exercises were more elaborate.
At the high school the pupils at
Mrs. Halsey's, Miss Wilson's am
Miss Searles' rooms were taken to
the high school room where Pro
fessor Halsey's and Mrs. McCIel-
I l;inl's classes united with them in
rendering a very pleasant program
The first number was a song euti
tied "W elcomeo Arbor Day," by
the entire school; then prayer was
offered by Kev. A. B. Buckner. An
interesting essay was then read on
"Necessity for Tree Planting," by
Myrtle Levings, which was followed
by an exceedingly pretty vocal duet
by Flora and Anna Bibby. The de
bate came next, on the subject:
"Resolved, That lilm Trees are
Preferable to Oak and Maple for
Planting in the School Yard." Rob
ert Ballon championed the aflirina
tive, while Fmiory Buckner took
care of the negative side of the pro
position; several of the scholars ex
pressed their views on the subject,
which made it of much interest
Prof. Halsey favored the schools
with a violin solo. The sophomore
class of the high school enacted
some charades on the subject of
trees, and the entire school sang a
song entitled "The Tree We are
Planting This Spring Daj" The
school then adjourned to the cam
pus, where each room planted its
own tree except the high school;
there each ot the lour grades were
allowed to plant a tree.
Mrs. Halsey's room marched out
to the grounds headed by the girls
carrying the banner with I. G. S,
(Plattsmouth Grasimar School) em
blazoned on its silken folds
llie uoys lollowed, all wearing
wreaths. The class colors, laven
der, were liberally displayed. The
scholars gathered around the fine
Kim tree that had been provided
for planting and after singing ap
proprate songs the girls dug the pit
and all the scholars in the class by
turns took a hand in filling it up.
The wreaths were deposited at the
base of the tree and the class was
dismissed for the day, it being then
about 10 o'clock. The program in
each of the other room in central
building and at the ward schools
was much the same so that a detail
of the proceedings of the other
schools would be largely" as rep
etition of what we have given above.
Many visitors were present and
derived much pleasure from wit
nessing the proceedings which were
novel and entertaining in an emi
nent degree.
To-day being a legal holiday the
banks and most of the public offices
have been closed.
An M. V. pile driver was shipped
in this morning and will be used
down at Theodore Buck's to build
an overhead crossing for him.
Mrs. IC. S. Greusel and daughter
Carrie, and Miss Rose McCaulley,
will see and hear the National Ma
rine Band to-day at the metropolis.
Frank Otto of the firm of Hatt &
Otto is the happy father of a nine
pound boy that arrived at his dom
icile last night. Everything is
probably free at the meat market
" For practical economy we refer
you to a clothing firm in this city
where three agreeable gentlemen
wait upon customers and use but
one hat between them. Two of the
clerks sleep in the store so that
when the manager is out he knows
the boj-s are in. The clerks only
get out on the street when the man
ager is in and gives up the partner
ship hat. It is a great scheme.

May 3 to be Celebrted by the Fire Boys
in This City.
The Fire Department met in the
council chamber last night with
President Skinner in the chair and
Secretary C. A. Miller at the desk.
A good large crowd was present
and much interest was manifested
in making the forth coming anni
versary of the completion of the
water works a success.
It was May a, 1SS7, that the city
held its first Celebration in honor
of the new water plant that had
been completed a few days before.
It was a great clay for Plattsmouth,
and from that date can be chroni
cled a new era in the progressive
history of this busy city.
It was the first great work in the
line of public" improvements to In
completed, and nt) one regrets to
day that our plant (which is the
best in the state outside of Omaha)
was finished and the aqua ptira
turned into the ten miles of maines
that honeycomb the city in all di
rections. '
The fire companies at their meet
ing last night after a full discus
sion of the matter agreed upon the
following program:
Firemens' parade headed by the
B. & M. band at 1 p. m. and march
to grounds (Fitzgerald's Forty hav
ing been selected). After that there
will be a bag- ball gaie of five in
