XLVINO.23 ConsolidnUd'Jax 1. 11 For a Mer chants Carnival Plattsmouth Making Arrange ments for a Big Celebration this Fall. 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 pioneer style. 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 , aiiu tuiiicDio aim lit jatb Hunting 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. Mrs. M A. Root of Mendota 111., who has been a guest at the home of Mrs. W. L. Street for several days was a passenger for Omaha Friday.

Becker one of Cass county's substantial farmers, with a fine farm home near Union drove to Plattsmouth Saturday and was a passenger for Om aha via the Burlington route. Mr. Becker makes a specialty of thoroughbred stock raising and his trip to Omaha was on business connected with his large stock Interests. He Btates that a week of dry weather would greatly aid the farmers In their farm work at present and be of lasting Democratic Rule. Expensive State Institutions Cost More per Capita Under Democratic Rule. "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 May 21. 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 blind at Nebraska City, institute .for feeble minded at Beatrice, industrial homo forewomen at Milford, industria! school for boys at Kearney. 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 ment. 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 tenance. Witn practically the Bame number of inmates the per capita cost has increased from $93.69 to $147.15, At urann imana with a large increase in the number of members of the home. the per capita cost has increased from $92.77 to $103.06.

Prlanda Oiaaitlallad The jury on the case entitled Lau vs, Hall in District Court which had been out for nineteen hours returned a ver diet allowing Mr. Lau damages in the sum of $500 Friday morning. Mr. Lau had sued for $10,300 on account of broken leg received from a carelessly handled stallion owned by the defend ant and as his doctor bill was quite high and he is a poor man and unable ! to do a hard day's work at present on ; uccoant of his crippled leg the verdict was received with much disapproval by Gets New Coat ol Paint.
