THAT MYSTERIOUS WOMAN.
Who is Site, Where Did She Come From
and What Her Mission?
One week ago last Saturday a young
woman arrived in Plattsmouth, claim
ing Tennessee as her home, and also
claiming to be looking for a brother
who recently got kicked by a horse and
dangerously liurt. She gave her name
as Lulu Craig, and did not possess even
a change of clothing. She put up on
her arrival here at Cory's restaurant,
and In explanation for the absence of
a change of wearing apparel, made the
statement that at Kansas City, in
changing cars, her grip in some man
ner wasexcliauged for that of a tobacco
drummer's. She paid one day's board,
and left Mr. Cory in the lurch for the
balance. What made her story seem
so plausable was that on she morning
of herarrival here it had been rumored
on the streets that a few days previous
Hoc Craig, living south of town, had
been kicked by a horse and dangerously
Put a few days after the arrival of
the "lady from the south," Mr. Craig
was In the city and unharmed, but he
was not the brother she was looking for.
However, t he lady remained at the res
taurant, the authorities and Mr. and
Mrs. Cory keeping a very close watch
upon her every movement, as at times
her actions resembled those of deranged
person. She seemed todoa great deal
of corresponding, In all of which cyph
ers were used, w hich would denote that
she was "up to snulT" on whatever
scheme she was endeavoring to perpe
tratc. Miss Craig, or whatever her
true name might be, remained here
until last Sunday morning, when she
told Mrs. Cory that she was going to
church, and that was the last seen of
her at the restaurant Upon investi
gation the facts were disclosed that
a woman answering her description
purchased a ticket over the M. P. rail
road for Julian, Xeh., and boarded the
south-bound 10:41 train, evidently
leaving the restaurant barely In time
to catch this train. This shows that
the woman was not "broke," as she
claimed, and from every appearance
she Is simply an impositor;or, perhaps,
as some are Inclined to believe, an es
caped Inmate from some Insane hospi
tal. The only evidence to bear out the
Insanity idea is her claim that she is
the possessor, in her own right and
title, of live orsix thousand acres of ex
cellent land InTinncssce about three
hundred acres of which Is In two or
three miles of Memphis. Her depart
ure was as mysterious as her arrival
and conduct while here. It would
seem from the following special from
Falrbury, Neb., to the Lincoln Journal,
Miss Mac Donald and Miss Craig are one
and the same person:
"A woman giving her name as
Mac Donald, and claiming Georgia as
her residence, was in the city last Fri
day trying to locate her brother, who,
she said, had been kicked by a horse
and to whose bedside she had been call
ed by a telegram. She had a ticket to
Pawnee City, but claimed to have
learned on her arrival here that her
brother lived near llelleville, Kansas.
Having unfortunately exchanged grips
with a traveling man at Kansas City,
she was devoid of purse or other useful
Impediments, and was seeking to reach
llelleville by thesmypiitliy route. Her
case was Identical with that of "Miss
LuluCralg," as related by Plattsmouth
dispatches, except the trilling differ
ence of name and destination. She was
directed by one of the local business
men here to the president of the "char
ity organization society," but she did
not appear before that body."

PATRONS' DAY EXERCISES.
A Red Letter Day In the History of the
Last Friday was red letter day in
the history of the public schools. Each
room in the city had arranged a dis
play of its work.
The pupils had prepared a short pro-
grain for the entertainment of their
friends. The weather of the few days
preceding threatened to spoil the well
laid plans, but Friday morning the
sun and w ind dried the walks, and the
afternoon was beautiful. The parents
fakly Hocked to the school buildings.
From the comments heard we Judge
they felt repaid for their effort.
So gradually do the schools take on
the new that it is only when an op
portunity is given to contrast the work
of the schools today with that of their
day that parents can realize what is
being accomplished In the modern
Those who so kindly responded to
tho call for words of cheer and en
couragement for the boys and girls
were: Mrs. Stoutenborough, In the
High school; in the Central building,

The pupils of the High school enter
tained their friends with an excellent
program last Friday afternoon, after
which the visitors were Invited to ex
amine the school work of the pupils.
Recitations were given by Misses
Eva Jones, Elizabeth Green, Margaret
Mauzy and Ellen Windham. Many
words of praise were heard as to the
ability of these young ladles. Misses
Ida Pearlnian and Mina Herold each
sang a pleasing solo. .Other musical
numbers were piano solos by Misses
Florence Fassbcnder, DcElla Vcnncr,
Jessie Fair, and an original waltz by
Eugene Tighe; a mandolin duet by
Messrs. Arthur Troop and Fair. The
Senior German chorus made their first
appearance in public and were greeted
w ith a hearty applause.
One of the enjoyable features of the
musical program was the selections
given by the Sherwood orchestra.
Mrs. Stoutenborough also gave a most
helpful and inspiring talk of "The
Yalue of Education."
At the close of the program, the
work of the pupils was examined by
friends and patrons. Each teacher
had charge of the exhibit In her room
and visitors were enthusiastic In their
praise of the work of the pupils.
The teachers expressed themselves
as anxious that the parents should
more frequently visit the schools.
Pei small), and in behalf of the
pupils and teachers, we extend sincere
thanks to those who kindly responded
to our requests for talks In connection
w ith our Patrons' Day exercises.

Under a False Name.
The Omaha World-Herald of Tues
day morning contains the following In
reference to Geo. Elliott, a former sa
loon man of this city, whose death
was mentioned hi the lust Issue of the
"J. C. Martin of Central City, county
attorney of Merrick county, is In
Omaha In quest of the relatives of
George Elliott, who died in Central
City last month. Elliott, it Is thought,
was formerly in the saloon business in
Omaha, and It is believed that his
mother and sister are still living here.
"Considerable mystery is attached
to Elliott's career and death. It is
stated that In Central City he was
very reticent about his past, confiding
to some few friends that he was the
"black sheep" of his Tamily, and did
not want his true name and family
connections divulged. He was an edu
cated man, of more than ordinary In
telligence, and left considerable prop
erty at his death.
"Death was duo to paralysis. Just
before he died Elliott asked for pencil
and paper, but died without being
able to leave anything more than an
unintelligible scrawl to solve the mys
tery of his Identity, lie had stated,
howevor, that his mother and sister
lived In Omaha, and that he had fami
ly connections in St. Louis, Washing

failed to shed any light on the

The services at St. John's church on
Sunday were characterized by the
solemnity customary at Easter, the
altars being adorned with a profusion'
of beautiful llowers given by the mem

At the first mass the schoolchildren
sang very sweetly the Easter hymns
of the church. Loesch's Mass in F,

mass by the choir, ably assisted by Mr.
Waldeman Heck with the violin and
Mr. E. II. Shuloll with the cornet.
As an offertory piece Mr. Hutler sang

Had His Nerve.
The following toh. to a Journal repor
ter a few days since, is vouched
for as being true. A patient called at
a doctor's office in this city, stated his
ills, and the doctor wrote a prescrip
tion and handed it to him. The pa
tient then inquired the probable cost
of getting it tilled and was told about
sixty cents would pay the bill. The
patient then asked the doctor for the
loan of that amount, and the doctor,
scratching his head, drew a line
through several parts c.f the prescrip
tion, then handed it to the pat ient.say
ing: "Now you can get it filled for
about a dime. Those scratched out
were for your nerves, but I sec you do
not need anything for them."

The New Assessment Law.
The most hnportantquestlon now be
fore the people of Nebraska Is that of
putting the new revenue in lawtoelfect.
The law requires all property to be as
sessed at actual value, one-fifth of that
value being the sum on which tax is to
be paid. The danger Is that the sev
eral counties will not follow the same
system in arriving at values. The
meeting of the assessors at Lincoln last
January was a pretty complete lizzie.
The state board did not meet with
them and no general understanding ot
tho ineanimr of the law and the method
of putting it into force was arrived at.
The result is liable to be an unequal
assessment. The power given the
state lioard to equalize assessments as
between the counties will not cure the
matter. It Is impossible for the board
to know values In all the counties of
the state. The attempt to equalize as
betw een townshlpsor counties Is large
ly a matter ot guess. And when tho
state board attempts to equalize as be
tween the counties it Is very largely a
jump in the dark. Especially Is it so
under our law which makes no provis
ion for ascertaining values by the state
board as does the law of Wisconsin and
