Chas. Steele of Avoca While In
, toxicated Shoots His Friend
j Chas. Steele is in jail and Chas. Mar
tin, his friend, is in the hospital at Om
aha with a bullet in his hip, all the re
sult of too much booze. The men had
' gone to Jens Rasmussen's place, a
mile and a htlf west of Avoca, Sunday
i afternoon, where they proceeded to fill
up and as a result became quarrelsome.
I About six o'clock as Steele was stand
ing inside of the building Martin is said
to have thrown rocks at him and re
; fused to desist when told to do so.
j Steele, it is alleged, thereupon seized a
rille and fired upon Martin, the bullet
entering his hip and lodging. Steele
j immediately went to Avoca and sur
! rended to Constable Bogard who in
; turn notified Sheriff Quinton and the
latter left at once for Avoca and rej
! turned with his prisoner who is now in
jail. The rille used in the shooting was
a 22, the property of Rasmussen.
Dr. Brendel, who was summoned to
Martin's aid was unable to find the
bullet and had the wounded man taken
j to a hospital at Omaha Monday morn
ing. It is said that Steele and Martin
were old time friends, coming to Ne-
j braska from North Carolina five years
ago and so far as could be learned no
former trouble existed between the
j men. "Martin will not prosecute me,"
said Steele, when talking about his
j rasn act with the sheriff. Whether or
not Martin will feel like forgiving the

man who shot him remains to be seen.
In the meantime Steele will remain a
guest of the county for some time.
To the Public.
I wish to thank the public for the
liberal patronage, which greeted the
opening nigh: of the Majestic theatre,
under my management. My desire is
to make the Majestic a home theatre,
and the money paid out for its main
tenance will remain right here in Platts
mouth with the exception of that por
tion paid for film rental, the motion
pictures will be of the very best possi
ble to secure. My pianist and violinist
are Plattsmouth girls (the Misses Mild
red and Amy Cook,) and render music
well worth hearing.
The stage is being enlarged suffici
ently to admit of properly putting
on song productions, sketches, ect.,
and these will be produced with home
talent as far as possible.

throwing both out. Mr. Applegate,
who is well known in this city, received

News, exclusively, last Saturday of an
increase in wages from employees of

"s niomt'ned in the former item, to
September 1st. In round figures the
men receive m the
$10 per day increase. The advance was
not demanded by the men. but was
t : made voluntarily by the company and

visiting her parents, Postmaster and
Mrs. C. H. Smith, departed today for
her home in Brock, Neb., where her

National W. C.T. U.
The National Women's Christian
Temperance Union convention is in full
blast in Omaha. Among those from
here who attended and. heard Mrs.
Mary Harris Armor of Eastman, Ga.,
preach the annual convention sermon
in the auditorium Sunday afternoon
were, Mesdames B. C. Kerr, L. A.
Moore and Lura Meredith.
Mrs. Armor has the reputation of
speaking "like a house agre." Her
stylo is that of the exhorter and her
speed that of the lightning express.
She spoke in this city about one year
ago. Several times she swept her
audience into applause at some telling
shot against the liquor traffic, or
elicited occasional laughter by a
uniquo illustration or curious character
ization. Mrs. Armour styled the picture she
drew of states falling one after another
before the ribbon a vision given her by
God, not a dream. She saw the first
beginning in Nebraska, going from here
to Missouri, then to New York and so
on, one by one to the various states,
finally ending in Washington with
action by congress.

per share. Mr. Vernon, assisted by
Mr. Barwick, is meeting with good
success, having placed a number of

Exit Drinking Cups.
One of the new things which may bo
seen in all the public school buildings
in South Omaha is an automatic drink
ing fountain for the use of students.
The fountain is so arranged that it will
be impossible for one child to pass
contagion from lip to lip as in the case
of the old drinking cup. The cups
carried in the children's desks arc
quite as apt to become unsanitary as
the drinking cup used by all. Tho
authorities arc more than usually

diphtheria and the dangers of anterior
