We certainly feel proud of the ujv
pcurauce of the Tlattsinouth Daily
News since they have installed their
new type machine. Not only that but
It ia a mighty well edited paper and
Editor barrows is apparently getting
the support in a measure that he de
serves. The lepuMican party needed
a good news-paper in Plattsniouth and
there is one there now who can tell the
truth and still be an influential factor
in the community. Wttiing Water
lit Has the Time Now.
Clerk of the District Court Hobert
m is a happy man today, in fact he
has been happy since last night. For
some time past Mr. Robertson-has
been cni.oyrd because he was unable
to give the time tf day to callers at his
office and he has frequently been put to
the tiouble of going to some other office
to get the time. Taking advantage of
a meeting of the board of county com
missioners he went before that body
with a request that a time piece of
Rome kind be provided at the clerk's
office. The county board expressed
great sympathy for the genial clerk
and really felt that he was suffering for
a lack of time. So great was their sym
pathy that they went at once into ex
ecutive session and the result of their
deliberations was a subscription paper
which was generally signed by the
members and other officials and a time
piece was purchased. Immediately
after the district court had adjourned
a body of men consisting of the com
missioners and the other contributors
to the time fund, headed by Judge
Pemberton, filed into the clerk's office
and informed Mr. Robertson that it
had come to their knowledge that his
office was not working "on time" and
knowing that he was bo particular in
that respect they had decided to pur
chase for his use a time piece which it
was hoped would be to him a remem
brance that he was not forgotten by
his other official friends who desired
that his every want should be prompt
ly provided for. It gave them great
pleasure to present to him a means
whereby at all times he would know
when to go to his meals and at the
same time when he looked it in the face
he would recall one of the happiest mo
ments of his official life. Judge Pem
berton made the presentation speech
i 1 his most hnnnv vein and the emo
tion of Mr. Robertson was. most pa
thetic to witness. As the judge con
cluded his speech he stepped forward
and "handed the clerk a package."
for a few moments Mr. Robertson
was too overcome to reply, but finally
h! arose to the occasion and spoke elo
quently of the pleasure he felt. Then
h remobed the wrappings and dis
posed to view a handsome "Inger.ol
watch." Tableau and then some.
Hiwever, Mr. Robertson is wearing
p oudly his new timepiece, and looks
a though he was happy.

Bride Is Daughter of II. Norton
ol this City.
The folulwing from the Rrock bul
letin will be of interest to Plattsniouth
people le cause of the fact that the
bride is the daughter of Mr. 11. Norton,
agent of the Missouri Pacific Railway
at this place:
At the home of Mr. and Mrs. V. II.
Norton, in Talmage, at S:3() a. m.,

Fred (. Hawxby and Miss IVarle
Norton, both of Auburn.
The ceremony was performed by
Elder Harris and the bride and groom

ertson and Elmer Dovel. Immediately
after the wedding breakfast which fol
lowed the ceremony, the bridal couple
drove to Julian and boarded the train
for Kansas City at St. Louis to spend

Thomas Kennish, called by his best
friends "Uncle Tom," was injured this
morning but, we are glad to state, not
Of late he has been driving a team
for the Dovey store. This morning he
had backed his team up to the rear
door of the store, the wagon being
heavily loaded. One of the mules got
frisky and proceeded to hold the reins
with his tail. Mr. Kennish reached
forward to sooth them and about that
time the contrary animals took a no
tion to run. The sudden start threw
the driver forward onto the ground and
one of the wheels passed over his foot.
Mr. Kennish was picked up and car
ried into the store and later taken
home where upon examination it was
found that no serious injury had re
sulted from the mishap. The thick
mud into which Mr. Kennish fell evi
dently saved him.

prised at his home Saturday by a par
to of friends, it being his 37th birth

were served and at a late hour they re
turned widhing him many more happy
In our report of the vote of Louis
ville precinct in last week's issue of the

hardest fights of the campaign, his op

Lydia M. Rickard, the widow, has
made application for appointment of
herself as administratrix. Mrs. Rick
ard has also petitioned the court for
the appointment of herself as guardian
of her two children. This is made nec

With Mr. Turnlpseed.
OMAHA, Nov. 18. Little Ruth
Spencer, a pretty sixteen year old las
sie from Rising City, this state, in
company with a young man by the
name of Thomas Turnipsced appeared
before Judge Leslie and were made man

down and provided.
Little Mrs. Turnipsced had the con
sent of her father who accompanied
the couple. They first tried to get
married at Council Rluffs, but the
magistrate there would not grant
them a license. Mr. Turnipseed's
home is in Washington, Iowa, and
they will probably return to that place
ultimately, although Mr. Turnipsced
has been working at Norfolk.

MINSTRELS MAKE HIT
AT COATES HALL
Attend Bazar Tonight or You will
Once more have the ladies of St.
Mary's Guild demonstrated that they
usually make a success of anything
they undertake. The bazar given last
night and which will be repeated to
night was well attended and the re
ceipts were something like $170.
Coates hall which is being used for
the event was lxautiful!y decorated
and the bootlis were filled with articles
consisting of fancy needlework and
other things of a nature to appeal to
the shopper. As the News man viewed
the pretty scene Wednesday afternoon
his attention was first attracted to the
Maidenhood booth, which was in the
form of a garden party, with the wall
covered with poppies. At this booth
were served coffee, baked beans and
brown bread. Next came Girlhood.
This booth was built with a number of
nets, and oyster stew was served, also
lovely rich cakes, pies fruits, salads
and "sit h." Near by was Childhood,
built in the shape of a ginger bread
house, presided over by children who
sold ice cream, popcorn and candy..
One of their great drawing cards was a
grab bag. The Infancy booth was
built in the shape of a large cradle in
red, white and blue. Here they sold
everything to delight t he little mother's
heart. The Matrons booth, where all
kinds of aprons and fancy work were on
sale, was liberally patronized. Ad
joining was a booth built in the shape
of a porch party for old age. The dec
orations were conceived by Mrs. II. S.
Austin and carried out under her per

what are we going to say about them.
We laughed so much last night that,
honestly, when we start to write our
impressions our old head is filled with
merry thoughts and our heart with
laughter and it is almost impossible
for us to sober up long enough to do
the job justice. Any way, here is the
Interlocutor Mes. H.'S. Austin as

as Betsy Belinda Butter Ball, Mollic
Seivers as Miss Nancy Nimblcfoot,

The soloists were Gladys Sullivan,
Helen Kline, Grctchen Donnelly, Edna
Peterson and Mrs. II. S. Austin.
The dancer was Mollie Seivers and
the accompanist lone Dovey
The troupe of trained artists were
under the direction of Mrs. II. S. Aus
tin. The large crowd which gathered to
see the minstrels expected to be enter
tained, but it was totally unprepared
for the appearance of the black face
artists when they made their appear
ance upon the stage and therefore the
burst of applause following was spon
taneous and hearty. The specialty
stunts by Misses Kline, Sullivan, Pet
erson, Donnelly, Sievers and Mrs.
Austin were ridiculously funny and
each artist received all that was coming
to them in the way of handclapping.
One feature not down on the bills hap
pened when two of the beautiful col
ored "gentlemen" appeared wearing
whiskers which simply wouldn't stay
on. It is no use, girls, you will have to
wear whiskers by proxy.
We want to compliment the entire
company upon their efferts, and Mrs.
Austin upon her success in bringing
her troupe to such a state of profi
ciency. The show will be repeated

zens Proves it.
After reading the public statement
of this representative citizen of Platts
mouth, given below, you must come to j
this conclusion: A remedy which cured
years ago, which has kept the kidneys
in good health since, can be relied up
on to perform the same work in other
cases. Read this: .,
J. W. Hickson, Oak Street, Platts
mouth, Ntbr., fays: "I will never
cease to praise Doan's Kidney Pilln,
as they were of such greot benefit to
me several years ago. My kidneys and
back were a source of constant suffer
ing and I was subject to attacks of
lumbago that came on without the
lenst warning. The simplest move
ment was painful and I was anoyed
more or less by the irregular passages
of the kidney secretions. I reHd so
much about Donn'e Kidney Pills, that
I finally procured a box from Gering &
Co. 's drug store. I was so gratified
with th results of their use that I
publicly endorsed them in 1906 and 'at
this time, I heartily' renew that state
ment. I hope that other kidney suf
ferers will profit by my experience."
