FATHFR HAYES IS DEAD.

Early HourThis Morning.

Father Hayes Came to Plattsmouth
In I 856 and Has Been Identi
fied With Her Interests
Ever Since A Long
Life Well Spent.
The community was startled this
morning with the announcement
that Father IIa3'8 died at 3 o'clock
this morning; thus, not an unlooked
for event startled his friends and
the entire community, for all knew
he was a very old man, "full of
3-ears, ana ready lor tne grim mes
senger. Yet, he had lived among
us foi so many 3-ears, had been
such a familiar landmark for the
past thirty odd years on our
streets every da3r; always hale,
heart3 kindl3r, venerable, he came
to be regarded with love and ad-'
miration by all classes of our peo
ple. So, when the looked for, 3'et
startling, word passed from neigh
bor to neighbor, "Father Ha3rs is
dead!" there was, as it were, an in-
voluntar3r pause and exclamatio
of surprise and pain. Kveryon
had lost a friend. The community
one ot its very oldest, staunclies
best citizens, the cnurcti its ve
best, its oldest and most loyal
counsellor and guardian.
Father Ilayscame to Plattsmouth
in the earl3r territorial da3rs, abou
1850, and cast his lot with our peo
pie; was the founder of the Presby
terian society here and has eve
since remained with, us, leading
blameless, upright, Christian life
He was devoted to the Presby-terian
church and gave It his greatest
time and attention, and it is there
he will be missed the most. It ap
pears Mr Hays Had an attacK o
la grippe last winter and, although
he had apparent- overcome that
enemy ot tne old and innrm, 111s
intimate friends have noticed ever
since that he was gradual- failin
and breaking down. It was but a
week or ten da3s ago, while on his
way to prayer meeting, that he had
a veiv severe fall on the sidewalk
in front of Judge Chapman's resi
dence which cut and injured his
face severel3r, but from which acci-
den he had apparent- recovered
Last evening at about 5 or 6 o'clock
Mr. Hays was found at the front
door of Prof. McClellan's residence,
where he lived, gasping for breath
Help was called at once and he was
assisted to his room, where Dr.
Cook was summoned. His trouble
was pronounced heart failure and
he gradually sank away, dying i
about 3 o'clock thismorr'ng.
Mr. Hays was born in Dauphin
county, Penns3'lvania, July 15,
18C6, and resided in Ohio during
his ac.'ive business life. His age
was eighty-five 3'ears and some
months. He leaves two daughters

Plattsmouth Heard From.
Following are the orations as de
livered by three of Plattsmouth's
citizens at the graduation exerc'ses
of the Miner Institute at A srilaiid:
A GERMAN GKADUAT 5.
On Monday evening, April 16th,
Mat Schlegel, of Plattsmouth,
favored the Miner Club with a few
remarks. He said:
Mr. president and msmbeesof
THE Club: As the time has arrived
for me to take my departure from
yoa, my most lntimaie iriencs,
take this mode of thanking you all
.'or the kindness and consideration
3'ou all have shown me, especia;l3r
Dr. Miner for his kindness and good
advice and sucessiul' treatment, of
my worst habit or d"sease, that of
the appetite for liquor, which I had
contracted some twelve 3-ears ago,
and have : '.ed in various wajrs .0
'get rid o. I had quit dink:ng for
five 3rears at one time and at another
ti lie I had not drank any for nine
teen months. I had each time made
up my mind not to touch the cursed
stuff again, but during both periods
the craving for liquor would mani
fest itself. The only way I would
overcome it was not to go where the
stuff was to be had, but since I have
been cured of the appetite I think
(with the help of God) I can with
stand any temptation offered me.
I also desire to thank Mr. R. W.
H3'er8and others of Plattsmouth,
who have caused and helped me to
get here, and also to the kind people

RELIEF AT LAST.
At the club meeting last Saturday
evening J. W. Brantner spoke as fo--lows:
Mr. President, Msmdsks of th 5
C iCC, LAOiES AND GE.NTL2.X 5X: At
the request of someof the members,
I intended to make a .ew remarks
this evening, but a Tier P oking the
matter over carefully, I find I am
not capable of so dol.ig. Had I ;he
oratorical powers of our brother,
Co'. Matbeney, or the winning ways
of Bro. Moo a, I wokld then have no
hesiiat ion in speakingto thisassem
y. Not being so g' fted, I will wnve
what I x'eel my duly to our le'iow
aduates who leave us th.s even--g.
I leel p -oud to-night that we
ave found a remedy for this disease
that is ruining more families, caus-
n'- more misery and sorrow in our
midst than all other diseases. x
have been affl cted with the disease
for a number of years. I have tried
everything, but found only tempor-a-y
relief. I have signed the tem
pe ance p'edge, jo:ned the Good
Templers, the Temple o. nonor,
made solemn vows to my meads
and to 1113' God, that I would never
taste the accursed stuff again. But
did not have the po p er to resist.
Now that we have louna trie remeay
ei us each, as members of this club
when we go from this Institute, go
with the determination t.iat we will
do all we can,notdepend:ngonour-
elves alone, but looking to a higher
power, who is willing to assist us in
the right, to he'.p out fellow man
who if unfortunate enough to be
afflicted as we were. In doing this,
the Miner Institute will prosper and
many a noble man will' be saved
from a drunkard's grave.
' Respectf ulb' yours,
' ' J. Wr. Brantxer.
