The Fire Alarm.
Just after six o'clock last night the fire
bell sounded an alarm of fire for the
second ward. The streets were full of
men returning from their labor at the
hops and elsewhere, and ready hands
soon had the second and third ward hose
carts on the way. The fire was at the
residence of Tommy J ulian, a shop hand
living on Vine and Twelfth street. The
building was a two stery frame house
with an L for a kitchen, owned by Mrs
Ameia Swift. The fire caught out
side the house, under the porch in tl.f
corner of the L facing the southeast and
burned through the weather boarding
nd tar paper. Two men plowing hi
an adjoining lot discovered the flames
and were soon on the scene. It had been
wash day at the home, and the siding
was broken through near the roof of the i
kithen and the fire extinguished with a
few buckets of handy wash water. The
second ward hose cart was attached to
the hydrant corner Main And eleventh
street withrn seven minutes of the alarm, j
which was good time, to pull the cart
over high school hill and go four blocks.
But no water services was required.

A GRAND ENTERTAINMENT.
The Publlo well Pleased with the
Evening Afforded at the Anni
versary of the Y. M. C. A.
The Ladies a Leading Factor.
From noon till sunset yesterday there
wan a constant arrival of tempting cakes
and delicacies at Fitzgerald's ball.
Several of the leading ladies of the city
were there to direct, manage and do the
work necessary to have all things ar
ranged and in order for the evening.
Plates, cups and saucers, spoons, etc.,
came in by the bushel basket full; cakes,
cakes, cakes and cakes came till it seemed
there would be no room for them, and
sand witches, coffee and sugar was there
in adundance. A monster milk can, full
to the brim,' arrived, and it began to look
like there was going to be an inaugural
ball, but it was all to make out the suc
cess of the First Anniversary of the
Young Men's Christian Association of
The hall chairs were arranged in three
columns, with wide aisles and plenty of
room, and at (5 o'clock all was in readi
ness. From about 7:45 to 8:15 a perfect
stream of visitors poured in and the
ushers were kept on a lively move, and
the hull was crowded till there was no
standing room. Besides the chairs of the
hall about 100 more were brought from
the Y. JL.C. A. rooms. The entertain
ment opened with all standing toting
'Coronation." Rev. J. T. Baird, of the
Presbyterian church lead in prayer, and
Rev. W. B. Alexander of the Methodist
church read an appropriate chapter from
the bible. President J. II. Waterman,
of the Y. M. C. A. then made an address
r report, which was attentively heard,
and was as foilows:
One year ago the 6th of this month a
handful of young men gathered in the
M. E. church and organized a Y. M. C.
A. Little did they think at that time
what great things would grow out of
that small gathering. For nearly six
mouths we struggled along with yery
little to encourage us. Some time in
August our state secretary, Mr. Jfaah,
came in our midst and gave us a text
Gen. 18:14: "Is anything too hard for
the Lord?" August 2628 we held a
district conference and raised something
over $ S00 to carry on the work till March
1, 8'J. We then called a general secre
tary and rented our present quarters; at
that time the ladies of the Y. L. R. R. A.
came forward and very kindly helped us
by assuming the rent of one room for
five months mount $50 and donated
free of charge eyerything of value that
had been gathered together by them after
three years of hard labor. Also the
mother and sjsters came to our aid and
furnished the rooms with carpets, the
window blinds and the parlor with a
very nice center table, and from that time
our work seemed to prosper, and now we
can realize that Qod has led us along
through the past year, and let us trust
him to lead us in the future.
Plattsmouth is now making more rapid
strides toward development than it ever
has in the past. Sonithing demands our
immediate attention, or the result will be
painful to many. In our present rooms
we cauqot aecoqiniodate all the men who
attend our meetings, au'l fhe boys arc
clamoring for a place among us. Shall
we heed their claim on us, or put it off
till they are away from our influence,
when our efforts may then be in vain?
There must be 2,000 or more young
men in our city, and more coming every
day. What has been done to provide
for the moral and spritual welfare of
these young men? In my opinion we
should look around and find a site where
we could preot a suitable building and
make a permanent home for the young
men We have already outgrown our
pres.-nt quarters and it will be necessary
for us to move. Is there not someone
here tonight that would be willing to
build a $ 25,000 or 30,000 building for
the young men of pur city, if they could
secure a lot? Or, what would be better,
is tli'-re not some one that would do it
for the Lord? Young men, in all we do
or plan, if we trust Him who has led us
th.us fr; IIe U ld "ht. and
will fully perform His part, if we faith
fully do ours. See John 15:16. "Ye
have not chosen me but I have chosen
you, and ordained you, that ye snouicl
go and bring forth irnit, and that your i
fruit should remain, that whatsover ye
shall ask of the Father in my name, He
may give it to you."
The Y. M. C. A. choir sang a beautiful
anthem, and the chairmen of the various
committees ot tne association gave ineir

Although the sincrinz by the Y. M. C.
A. choir had been a rich treat, and heart
ily enjoyed, and the reports were not un
iutensting, the report from the ladies
was the chief and grand procedure of
the evening, and was just the size for the
ciowd. Immediately after the announce
ment, young men with arms heaped with
plates pased through the audience and
gave to all a dish in which to receive the
good things to follow. Coffee and milk
milk that was milk right from the
farm .were served as beverages, with
sugar and cream for the coffee, accompa-
nied ly pickles, sanawicues, aougnnuis
and cake till there was no end to it. For
a full half hour the aisles were fall of

the hungry hundreds and elbowed their
way through the crowd where standing'
rooni was at a premium in the back of
the hall and attended to the wants of all.
Everything was free, no collection, no
admission, no nothing but sit there and
eat, and hear music and see pleasant sur
roundings. There was no dismial, but
everybody we.it as they pleased after re
freshments and the choir furnished
plenty of good vocal music to entertain
those who tarried.
The anniversary waq a complete suc
cess, and nothing but words of highest
pleasure at the entertainment they had
been given were heard from the hundreds
of visitors. The ladies who furnished

their successful management and the
