Old Timers Here.
A couple of former residents of
Plattsmouth were here today looking
over the old town and renewing old
acquaintances. Mr. Frank J.Carruth,
of Denver, arrived In Lincoln a few
days ago to visit his old friend, George
W. Chapman, and they took a run
down here. Mr. Chapman was In the
drug business here, and removed from
here to Lincoln to engage in the same
business which he hascontinued since.
Mr. Carruth went from here to Denver,
where he has since resided. The latter
gentleman erected the building now
owned by the Wescott's on the corner
of Main and Fifth streets. An old
settler tells a good story on Mr.
Carruth which happened while the
building was in the course of construc
tion. As usual in the construc
tion of such buildings, a great many
questions are generally asked. Jn or
der to save the trouble of answering
them he constructed a bulletin board,
telling who was putting up the build
ing, who was going to occupy It, and
various other questions. About this
time Mr. Carruth was a candidate for
Mayor, and was defeated. "One of
the boys" underneath all these answer
ed question early next morning after
the election wrote: "And run for
Mayor and got beat like h 11."

that would employ two men and a boy

men who were always w illing to accept

tory dimensions are still on earth and
doing business at the same old stands,
and no doubt will give about as much
for substantial enterprises today as
they did then nothing.
"Some of the enterprises that are
being olTered Plattsmouth now," con
tinued the old resident, really reminds
us of the good old Ijooiii days, "when
everybody was made rich by the voting
of bonds and Increasing taxes." The
old fellow added in conclusion, "I will
give as much as any other man of my
means for manufacturing establish

actions of these men who will get more
benefit from such enterprises than I
would, and without giving a cent. A

The supreme court has denied a re
hearing In the Inheritance tax law

law provides a certain per cent of
estates shall be paid into the county

Douglas county the county Judge

upon the estates and action was begun
by the connty attorney to compel him
to act. lie was successful In the

would like to sea every citizen take an
active part in the ceremonies on Wed
nesday, May :0th. Lay aside your farm
work for this day and come to town
and assist In decorating the graves of
the fallen braves, many of whom sleep
In Oak Hill cemetery. More old veter
ans are buried there perhaps, than at
any cemetery In Cass county. Then
why not suspend business generally in
the city on that day also, at least from
lOo'clock in the morning until l o'clock
in the afternoon, and all attend the
exercises at the cemetery and the ex
ercises at the opera house in the after
noon. It will not lie many years un
til all those who fought to save this
republic from total destruction, will
have passed away, and of which only a
few of them remain.

Strong, stirring dramatic situations,
thrilling climaxes, a love story of ab
sorbing heart Interest, amusing, nat
ural and unforced comedy scenes, allied
with a plot that can be followed by
everybody, are the really component
parts of a successful melodrama. Add
to the above a wealth of scenic splend
or, new and Intricate mechanical de
vices and a company of superior excel
lence, and the reason for the universal
success of "Human Hearts" is found.
"Human Hearts" is possibly the
