a smoker which was Riven by the
Onawanga Tribe No. 72 of that or
der at that place. There was first a
supper upon the arrival of the train
which was heartily appreciated by
te delegation from this place, as
the departure from the train from here
was at an hour that those going could
not easily Ret their suppers before
leaving. After the supper came the
band concert which was a feature
well worth the going that far to hear
Then came a variety of entertain
ing features, all designed to he pleas
ing, wjich fulfilled their mission to
that nicety which precluded any
dissatisfaction by anyone.
There was clog dancing which was
received with shouts of approval,
by all the visitors from other places
besides here, as Omaha, South Omaha
and many other places had delega
tions present. Violin and guitar
solos and other features kept every -
no in the best of spirits until the late

Tastefully Dressed Window.
The east window of the variety
store is one which appeals to the sit?ht
.seer in a way to catch their attention
and elicit words of admiration. The
dressing is after the manner o a home
stead in winter, with the lawns and
grounds about covered with snow
which is very appropriate for the sea,
son, and was the handiwork of Miss
Anna Johnson, who is the efficient
and genteel saleslady for that firm.
Stop ami see the display in the win
dow and walk in and examine the

PLATTSMOUTII GOOD PLACE
TO GET MARRIED.
Iowa Couple Drop into Town and
Judge Beeson Docs the Rest.
j Yesterday afternoon there slipped
(into this old town a joyous young
couple from our neighboring state
who immediately sought the ofliee and
services of his honor, Judge A. J. Ros
son, of whom they secured a marriage
license and had the genial judge per
form the ceremony that made them
one. They were Rert M. Calley.aged
24, and Miss Maude L. Rradway,
of Hastings, Iowa. They are now Mr.
and Mrs. R. M. Calley and have re
turned to Hastings where they will
throw themselves upon the mercies
of the bride's parents and ask for
giveness and a portion that they may
begin life with the joyous New Year
as is befitting people of their station.
This morning while awaiting their
train at the Rurlington station, when
asked by a representative of this paper
names, the blushing bride had seem
ingly forgotten the change of name
and probably had not become accus
tomed yet to the new estate, and toU
us that her name was Rradway, which
she hastily corrected by saying Cully
with a blush that would luivr put c
peony to shame. We rascally re
marked that "you have not yet gotten
used to the name." She admitted
the point, but said "I will soon."
Departs for Home Today.
J. C. Hanna of Oskaloosa, Iowa,
who has been here for some days pa.-t
visiting with his son J. K. Hanna and
family, and looking after some bus
iness matters among them the sale of
his farm south of the city, which was
elfeeted through the agency of Ceorge
L. Farley, the real estate man, de
parted for his home this morning,
going via Omaha where he will visit
the Corn Show for the day. J. K.
Hanna and wife and little son accom
panied Mr. Ilamna as far as Omaha
where they will also visit for the day.
Mr. J. K. Hanna will shortly have a
sale of his personal property, on the
arm just disposed of, but at the present
does not know just what he will do
in the future.
George Barr Some Eetter.
(ieorge Rarr who has been sic kfor
some time with fever, is reported as
showing some slight improvement
this morning, though the betterment
is very little. His many friends are
very glad that the turning point is
in sight, ami hope and trust that his
improvement from now on may be
rapid. It is not expected that he will
be able to get out and around again
for some time to come. A visit of
some of his friends and an effort to
cheer him in his sickness would be ap
preciated. In Justice Court.
This morning Judge M. Archer
handed down a decision in the suit
which was given suit in his court last
Friday, where Mrs. Cert rude H.
Morgan was plaintiff, and F. A. Mur
phy of Omaha defendant, wherein
suit was maintained for a book ac
count, contracted when the late F. J.
Morgan, husband of Mrs. Mor
gan, was engaged in the clothing
business. The judgment granted Mrs.
Morgan was for account and inter
est and was for $105.00.

OUT OF THE FIRE.
The fact that the Ledger appears
this week is a surprise to all who are
acquainted with the circumstances,
as the disastrous fire early Monday
morning indicated for a w hile that the
entire plant would be destroyed, but
thanks to the prompt action and
muscle of our friends, almost the entire
plant was saved and in fair condition,
so that with an extraordinary amount
of extra work on our part and the fra
ternal courtesy of the Plattsmouth
News and Journal, The Ledger makes
its appearance as usual this week
minus the customary amount of local
news. The only wonder is that the
paper appears at all, and we wish to
assure our friends that we appreciate
their successful efforts in saving the
material and machinery with so little
damage to the office eqqipmcnt.
We also wish to publicly thank Ftl
itor Rarrows and Rates for their gen-crot-ity
in telephoning us within a few
hours after the lire and offering the use
of their pros s or anything else we de
sired. We have never followed the "dun-
j ning" plan in the paper, but under
(the circumstances we feel justified in
I asking payment of all accounts due,
j especially delinquent subscriptions, as
Mt has required some outlay of cash
' to get the ollice in shape and to re
place some articles that were destroyed
or damaged. We would appreciate
it very much if our friends will either
call the ollice by telcpnone or hand us
i any hems of news.
