Monday dawned beautiful and bright
and was an ideal day for decoration
exercises. The program as prepared
by the; A. I!, post of this city was
carried out to the letter. The entire
forenoon was given to strewing ilowers
over tiio graves of departed heroes
w ho now sleep in Oak Iii!l cemetery.
While the old soldiers were engaged in
paying tribute to the memory of their
dead comrades, the friends and rela
tives of tho.se who had passed over to
the threat Ileyond. were also engaged
in placing lloral offerings on the graves
of the dear depaited. The beautiful
weather enabled all to do their duty
on this memorable day, and right well
did they perforin that duty.
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon Par
mele theatre was filled to its utmost
capacity by those interested in hear
ing the exercises prepared for the oc
casion. Judge S. M. Chapman opened
the exercises with a few 'appropriate
remarks, for which the Judge isalways
equal to. In his brief address he
cai'cd attention to the fact that Mc
Conihie Post held its lirst memorial
exercises twenty-four years ago. P.rief
as the address was it was very inter
The Plattsonian quartette furnished
the music for the occasion and it is
needless to say it was highly appre
ciated. Dr. Laird of the Presbyter
ian church offered prayer after which
came the oration of Mr. A. W. Jefferis,
the principal speaker. Mr. Jefferis is
a young attorney of Omaha, and his
remarks were suited to the event and
highly appreciated by those who lis
tened to it. He is a pleasant speaker
and a gentleman of tine presence. On
this particular occasion Mr. Jefferis
made many lasting friends in l'latts
mouth. The exercises were concluded by the
rendition of "The Holy City." by Miss
Alice Dovey, and to say that this mas
terpiece was most beautifully rendered
but half expresses it. Miss Dovey
possesses a most charming voice and
her appearance upon the stage, most
elegantly attired, was simply grand.
In fact, in the rendition of this sacred
song Miss Dovey displayed great abil
ity as a vocalist and that she is a mas
ter in her profession.
The benediction was pronounced by
P.ev. II. P. Purgess of St. Luke's Epis
copal church, after which the Woman's
ilelief Corps repaired to the banks of
the Missouri to deposit beautiful
Ilowers upon the waters in commemo
ration of the departed veterans of the
navy. This was a very interesting
ceremony, and was witnessed by a nu

Thus closed the decoration exercises

THE FIRE MONDAY NIGHT
F. J. Morgan fte Greatest Lccer- Bennett i

The incessant ringing of the ti n j

eleven o'clock resounded over the city
in the stillness of the ho;.: to the ex- j
tent tf arousing nianv from lheiri
peaceful slumbers, while many had j
not yet retired and some lew were up-

to have gotten a pretty fair headway

much credit is due to the daring ef

room of the building is occupied by F.

of L D. lieniiett ami the hardware
store of John IJauer came in for a
share of the losses, some of the goods
in each being damaged by water.
The origin of the lire perhaps will
remain a mystery for all t hue tocoine,
notwithstanding the many theories.

came could not be discovered despite a
thorough examination. So many
other theories are advanced by tlio
knowing ones, who are always ready
to donate an opinion, that it is not
necessary to 4:1010 them. The dam

tents most seriously damaged. The
K. of P. room in which were also the
I. A. P. and W. II. C. paraphernalia,
fared perhaps as badly if not worse.
The full extent of damages cannot
be ascertained yet, but it is presumed
to be somewhere in the neighborhood
of $10,000. Morgan's loss on stock and

surance. Has the Boy Been Murdered.
Two years agoCeorge, son of Mr. and
Mrs. John Albert of this county, went
out to Montana. He located on a ranch
about 1..0 miles from a railroad, but in
spite of these conditions his parents
received letters from him regularly un
til five months ago, since which time
nothing has been heard from him. As
time passed and no word came from the
long absent boy, his parents became
greatly alarmed fur fear that some mis
fortune has befallen him. Those fear
were Increased by oilier circumstances
connected with the case. Last Janu
ary Mr. Albert forwarded a draft for

boy acknowledged receipt of the money
and that was the last ines-age from
him. Since then several letters have
been forwarded to Ids address at Wil
boux and to Nevvlon, Mont., while the
postmasters at those places were also
communicated with, but the replies
received were not satisfactory, and
they failed to allay the fears of the par

The up-to-'iate communities which
have recently adopted this means of

have done so because hey had the bus

content to confine themselves to the
old method of waiting until muiio out

making known their inducements far

A Lot of Truth.
Mipposoa meal merchant makes $2,-
iii' i prolit on his year's sales from t he
farmers, (if this bo will payout for
home, taxes and other incissary ex
penses at least bail.
The same goods bought of the mail
order houses at their price would give
them a piolit of at least ..;,ioo, and
what good vvoiiid it ilo the town or
county in which you live? How much
taxes do these lious"s pay in ynurcoiin
ty or your state?
How much poultry or vegetables do
thev buy from your farm?
If these houses could sell all tin:
guuds in your count v, whore would you
go when you went to town'.'
A town Is no town without live and
A county is passed over by land buy
ers that has no good, live towns.
Your towns bring you a reputation
away from home. Your merchants
make the reputation of a town.
A Pctulior Proposition.
A kiss is a peculiar prop'' t ion. Oi
no use to any one, yet ab-o'uto bliss to
two. The small Imy gets it for noth
ing, t he young man lias to steal it. and
the old man lias to buy it. The baby's
right, the lover'- privilege, t he hypo
crite's mask, 'l'u a young gui faith;
to a married woman, hup.', and to an
old maid, charily.
Don't Be Too Sure of Tint.
They must have a might v ( heap lot
of girl- up at riatt-nioiith. A fellow
who kissed one of them against her
will the other day, was lined a dollar.
