Over 200 Citizens Headed By the
M. W. A. Band Visit
About a week ago Henry Gering and
a committee of citizens from Omaha
visited Plattsmouth and invited our
citizens to go up and partake of the
hospitality of the Aksarben bunch.
Of course the invitation was accepted
and preparation at once began for the
proper observance of Plattsmouth Day
at the den of Aksarben. A special
train was chartered and it soon became
evident that the crowd that went
would be a big one.
At 7:30 Monday evening over 200
businessmen and citizens gathered on
Main street and headed by the band
marched to the depot and boarded the
special on the Burlington arriving in
Omaha about 8 o'clock, where they
were taken on board the street cars
and hustled to the den.
The program there was as fine as
one gets a chance to see in a life time
and consisted of an address of welcome
by the High Grand Pusher after which
th crowd were entertained with a very
excellent opera company composed of
members of the society. The title of
thoir great production was Paprika
Schnitzel or the Bleached Haired Dam
sell who maashed Captain Kid. It was
a great production and those taking
part acquitted themselves gloriously.
The show began promptly at 9 o'clock
and lasted over two hours. Probably
too much credit cannot be given the
members of the Plattsmouth party who
assisted in the production of the opera.
About forty of the bajht looking were
selected and taken behind the scenes
and given a few moments practice on

their several parts, but only about a
dozen made good. McDaniels was sent
back because he stepped on the toe of
one of the members of the chorus and
put her out of business. J. P. Falter
wouldn't do anything but try to Bell
Capt. Kid a piece of real estate and so
he wa3 sent back. George Dovey tried
to abduct Papricker and barely escaped
with his life while a lot more showed
either personal or physical defects
which incapaciated them from the ardu
ous duties required. As it turned out
on! about a dozen were pronounced
perfect specimens of physical and per
sonal beauty and the rest were sent
back in disgrace.
When the tried and true lined up on
the stage they were surely a fine bunch
of fellows and the Plattsmouth crowd
foil proud of them and showed it by the
great ovation given. In pulling off the
different stunts Ray Travis excelled in
his aerial flight with a flying machine
Frank Bestor, Earl Travis and two or
three others brought down the house
with their piano chorus. E S. Tutt
fell down on his stunt but hopes to do
better this fall. W. C. Ramsey as the
man behind the go it had an easy time
but lost out just as he was beginning
to have lots of fun. But the most fa
vored of all was John Hatt who as
King Easytime on the throne surround
ed by his harem, looked and acted
as if he had been there before. The
rest of the lucky dozen acquitted them
selves nobly and Plattsmouth is proud

vited them to come to rialtsmoulh on
the 4th of September and they would
be right royally welcomed. Henry
Gering put the Omaha fellows on rec
ord by calling on all who would go to
Plattsmouth and attend the Carnival
on the 4th to stand up, and a large
number responded. Judge Root also
made a short address while Mr. Songan
of the .Kansas City Star talked for a

into the lunch room where at fifteen
minutes to eight by numerous clocks
they were entertained with a lunch
consisting of soda water, sandwiches,
soda water, colTee, soda water, cigars,
soda water, and more soda water. At
8 o'clock the bunch marched from the
den and entering the cars made a quick
run to the depot arriving there a little
The M. W. A band of this city made
a decided hit with the Omahaites and
were frequently called upon to assist in
the musical part of the program.
A large delegation was also present
from West Point which added to the
large crowd from Plattsmouth made
about all the den would hold.
The man who fails to accept the hos
pitality of the Knights of Aksarben
when the invitation is extended loses

cause to regret.
The editor of this paper was most
agreeably surprised to recognize in

benefit in future years.

The monotony of boarding bouse life
at Pollard's fruit farm was somewhat
relieved for a short time Tuesday even
ing, and it came about- in this way:
Trouble had been brewing in camp for
some time between a big Russian by
the name of Dutz and a newly arrived
West Virginian known as Jim Stuck,
and Tuesday evening matters came to
a head. The big Russian, who was a
bluffer from the word go, gave Stuck
to understand that he (Stuck) was
afraid to hit him, whereupon the West
Virginian, seeing that Dutz, though a
Russian, was "from Missouri," hauled
off and relieved the former subject of
the czar of his illusion. Next minute
Dutz was doing a first class Marathon
in a frantic quest for the gate which,
with the timely assistance of his eighteen-year-old
son, he finally found and
fled homeward. Next day Dutz and
family left for Colorado, whither the
West Virginian followed in tie even
ing. Let us hope that wjen they meet
again fh-.'ir angsr will have cooled and
thus be averted another skirmish be
tween Russia and West Virginia.

The First Day a Cloudy One, But
a Fair Crowd in Attendance
Wednesday morning, the first day of
the Merchants Carnival, opened with
light shower and throughout the day
the sun refused to shine, although very
little rain fell. The numerous shows
on the street opened up for business
about noon and the streets soon began
to put on a carnival appearance.
The city has been decorated in regu
lar holiday attire, many of the build
ings being quite lavishly dressed for
the occasion. Many of them have gone
to considerable expenso to do bo and.
the result is very satipfactory.
The opening day was live stock day
and the exhibit at Smith's barn, which
is headquarters for that part of the
show, was exceedingly fine.
The M. W. A. band interlivened the-
day with numerous selections and the
crowd was well entertained. The ball
game between Plattsmouth and Louis-
ville was won by the home team 1 a.
score of 7 to 3.
Thursday morning was a decidedly
damp affair, as it rained nearly all
night and showed no signs of clearing;
up when the time for the exercises to.
begin arrived. It was a great disap
pointment, as Thursday had ben se
lected as Pioneer Day, and large crowds
were expected to participate.
Friday is Merchants Day, and Satur
day will be devsted to sports, the pro
gram of which appears in this issue of
At the close of the carnival we will
give a list of the principal prize win
ners and a more elaborate write-up of
The new editor and manager of the
N'ews-IIerai.d wishes to say to the
public that on account of being unac
quainted with the people and also on
account of numerous changes we can,
not give them the kind of newspaper at
this time we desire. Later on however
we shall spare no expense to make this
tho best newspaper and advertising
medium in this section. We therefor
ask the indulgence of the public till we
can find out whtre we are at and can
get to going.
In returning from tho fire last
day one of the horses hitched to the
wagon which was drawing the hook
and ladder truck, fell while coming
down Fairfield hill and for a moment it
seemed as if a serious accident woukf
be the result. The weight of the truck
forced the wagon on to the horses but
the members of the fire company
jumped and escaped from what might
have been serious injuries.
The question of
good clothes is one
that comes up
for all of us every season;
you've probably got to buy
something this Fall; a suit
perhaps, or an overcoat; or
may be both.
One social point we want
to make; get this: We want
you to buy your alothes here
as much for the sake of
what you'll get out of it, as
for what we'll get. The
right idea of a business
transaction is a mutual ad
vantage; a fair and equal
exchange of values. That's
the way we want to do busi
ness. Come in when you're
rondy and see how true
