For a Mer
Plattsmouth Making Arrange
ments for a Big Celebration
Present indications point to the fact
that Plattsmouth is in line for a genu
ine up-to-date Merchants Carnival some
time in September.
The Commercial Club is behind the
movement and a committee of five rep
resentative citizens has been appointed
to take control and devise a show sure
to prove a howling success. The fal
lowing gentlemen are on t)he commit
tee, Frank Schlater, John Crabill, Hen
ry Schneider, John Neraetz and C. W.
Baylor. A perusal of the names will
convince the most skeptical that the
coming carnival will be the greatest
ever put out in th old town.
The date for the festivities has not
been fully decided but a majority of
the committee inclines to the first week
in September as the sixth of that
month is Labor Day and it would be
possible to Becure the aid of employes
in the local shops for a monster parade
which is always the taking feature, of
any affair of this kind. Another day
will be designated as Musical Day and
will be given oyer to music of all sorts. I
une teature being a large chorus com
posed of all singers in the city and
trained by one of the many talented vo
caliste of Plattsmouth. Another day
will be for the old settlers, wnen the
pioneers-of this section of Nebraska
will have an opportunity to renew old
acquaintances and celebrate in truly
A btock and produce show is also pro
posed and the farmers and stock rais
ers of Cass county will be asked to
bring in live stock and farm products
for exhibitiou. This would easily prove
one of the greatest attractions of the
carnival. Other days mentioned are
one for sports, such as a baseball tour
nament, in which the crack teams of
Cass county could compete for prizes
and a pennant; a Marthon race; wrest-
ling, horse race automobile races, foot j
,aa, mwMr r,ca, grate .po.e ,

will be overlooked for the entertain
ment of the vast crowds that are sure
to be present.
Two splendid features will be the
balloon ascension and daring parachute
lamp which will occur daily, and the
grand masked carnival on the closing
night on the plan of the Mardi Gras of
New Orleans. '
The foregoing is but to prepare the
people of Cass county for one of tho
bust affairs ever promoted by the citi
zens of its county seat and a cordial in
vitation will be extended to all upon
the completion of the committees plans
to be present and enjoy the occasion.

near Plattsmouth wauld do well to see
the writer as he can find places for
several experiencedmen at good wages.
Harvesting is ia full blast and as the
wet weather has greatly delayed com
plowing, many farmers are willing to
pay a little more than the usual wages
for help, in order to save their small
grain and get the corn lai4 by.

State Institutions Cost More per
Capita Under Democratic
"Old Per Capiter Circulation," who
used V be a boon companion of the
democrats, has -not been heard from
lately, but "Old Per Capiter Cost" has
recently pjtid a visit to the state demo
cratic administration and appears to
have taken up his home at the state
institutions. Last fall the democrats
charged the republican administration
uader Gov. Sheldon of extravagance.
The Shallenbcrger administration has
bean in effect and force since the first
of the year and nearly all of tho super
intendents of state institutions have
been in office since the first month in
the year, yet tho-semi-anaual reports
of seven out of twelve state institu
tions, the penitentiary not having been
heard fro&B, shows an increased cost of
maintenance for six months ending
The governor retained three women
superintendents during five months of
the semi-annual period. So in these
institutions there were the same super
intendents and the Bame board of pur
chase and supplies. In two of the in
stitutions at the Geneva school for girls
and at the home for the friendless,
there was a marked decrease in cost,
while at the third one, the industrial
home for women at Milford, the same
management resulted in a large increase
in cost. It is said Superintendent Rave
Rowden of the soldiers' home at Mil
ford sots up the Lest "huck" the boys
have ever had at that institution. The
semi-annual report would indicate it,
Dave's "per capiter" jumped from
$93.69 to $147.15.
The per capita cost include the sal
aries of officers and employes and cost
of maintenance and necessarily the free
board given to friends, relatives and
more or less dependent relatives of the
The institutions showing an increase
are: Lincoln asylum, soldiers homes at
Grand Island and Milford, school for

Those showing a decrease in the cost
of maintenance are institute for the
deaf at Omaha, home for the friendless
at Lincoln, asylum at Hastings, indus
trial school for girls at Geneva, asylum
at Norfolk. ' The state penitentiary has
not yet made its semi-annual state
The asylum at Lincoln with practic
ally the same number of inmates for
each semi-annual period shows an in
crease 01 iu per capita while the aey
lum at Hastings with a slightly in
creased number of inmates 6hows a de
crease frsm $81.88 to $75.32.
The industrial school for boys at
Kearaey shows an increase per capita
from $158.07 to $204.84. This is ex
plained to a certain extent by the de
crease in the number of inmates from
167 to 107. It is a general rule that
per capita cost increases when the num
ber of inmates decreases.
The soldiers' home at Milford shows
a marked increase in the cost of main

DES MOINES, Iawa, July 8.-Law-
rence Marshall Byers, whose death oc-
cured ip Lendon yesterday, while under
ether from an ulcerated tooth, had been
for five years one of the faculty of the
Iowa atate University college of law at

of Major S. II. M. Byers, who was for
twenty years counsel general at Roaiefe

Mr. Byers was slightly known by a
few Plattsmouth people, having visited
here on several occasions. His mother

older residents as Miss Maggie Gilmour
who taught school years ago in this
county, at the old Millet academy at
Oreapotis, at Rock Bluffs, and else
where. She is a sister of William GiU
mour who reside about four miles,
south of the city.

man states the prospect for farmers
lines being extended to the country
adjacent to Plattsmouth is quite flat
tering at present, and that his company
will begin work on several in the near
Old Settler Con.
