When you die the world will keep right (in point? round. woman's color comes and goes ac cording to her make-up. Some men seem to think that dis honesty is the best paying policy. Marry a soubrette If you are partial to rood kicking and poor cooking. Football players ought to he able to travel on their cheek In after years. Genius never amounts to much un less It is backed by common sense. An author's brightness isn't always due to the burning of midnight oil. A girl hopes that the veil of the future will prove to be a bridal veil. The camel must be all right, other wise nature wouldn't have backed him up. If women were obliged to think of something to say they wouldn't talk so much. . No man can thoroughly appreciate single blessedness until after he is married. Every married man has a grievance and so has his wife until she becomes a widow. There isn't very much hope for the art student who Is unable to draw his .own conclusions. Many a conservative man loses his money on a sure thing because lie Is afraid to take chances. A man "never fully realizes how homelv he really Is until he has his picture taken In a group. Always listen to an honest opinion, if fur no other reason than because it's different from your own. Wen a woman goes shooping the pitch of tier voice depends on whether she asi;s for silk or calico. , A cynic is a person who says hateful tilings because lie is unable to attract attention in any other way. I'robably more young men would he able to earn their living if they didn't have fathers to support them. When a man and his wife get along nicely together all the women in the neighborhood think It's because the wife is boss. The children are beginning to think what they want for Christmas, and are giving a slight hint to old Santa to that effect. The average man thinks he would have an excellent chance of occupying the presidential chair If the office sought the man. It's the nun who never does any thing who is always Johnny-on the spot when it comes to telling how things should he done. The woman who paints her pale cheeks pink looks with scorn and con tempt upon the woman who has oc casion to dye her hair red. When a man mukos love t a girl over the telephone she can't help blushing, to think how close his lips are to Hie transmitter. Farmers must, have good roads or lose rural route seryico and business men mint have good roads or lose trade. So there you are. Men who think they know it all get a lot more satisfaction outof life than those who actually know all that it Is necessary for them to know. Some of the young ladies who have not had a fellow for six months are now "setting their caps" for someone In time to get a Christmas present. The young lady who won a pair of gloves by walking "around the horn" three successive mornings at live o'clock, deserves credit for her energy and should receive the best gloves In the land. Not many girls has the courage to do this act. A debating society Is discussing the question whether It is grand or petty larceny for a man lo steal a kiss. The Idea had to be given up however be cause everyone of the girls was lirmly convinced that It was grand and no one in the bunch could he found to plead the other side. A young lady of this city has more nerve than any ordinary man of this age. As hhe was wending hei way homeward the other night, attending strictly to lur own business, a certain young man or thing, approached her with Insultinif remarks, when she gavehhn a slap in the face that he will remember for a long time. He won t Insult that young lady again Hravo! my dear girl. DOINGS OF THANKSGIVING Many Attend Appropriate Services Held at the Churches During the Day. ELOQUENT ADDRESsTTrEV. A, L. ZINK Large Crowd at Football Game to See Plattsmoiith Win From Ashland by Score of 12 to 0. Although cloudy and somewhat dis agreeable out of doors yesterday, it was truly a day of thanksgiving for all of ourcltlcns, who during the day went to the various churches to return thanks for the blessings of the past year. Beginning early hi the morn ing witli the Thanksgiving services at the St. John's and the St. Luke's churches, which wore tilled with large congregations, the entire day was leisi urly and pleasantly spent disposing of Thanksgiving dinners, tile football game In the afternoon, the union serv ices at the Presbyterian church, wedding and a dance in theevening , On the Football Field. As soon as the big dinners were put out of sight, many hurried to the foot ball tield, where the Independent team of this city were scheduled to play the Ashland boys. The visitors won the toss up, chose to defend the north goal, and after the kick off to Platts- mouth good gains were made In series of line plunges, which resulted In Mapes carrying the ball over the line for the first touchdown, just seven minutes after the ball was put Into play. Miner failed to kick goal, leav ing the score 5 to Oln favor of the home boys. On the kick oil by I'lattsmouth, Ashland was heJd for downs. The line plunges were again employed with suc cess, Miner crossing the line for the second touchdown. Tuc attempt of Fitzgerald at goal was a ii..lc, score 10 too for I'lattsmouth. .lust before the end of the lirst half Fitzgerald secured the bull on a fumble, and made a pretty lifty yard dash, before he was downed, shortly afterwards tin. e was called. In the second half a stubborn tight wps put up by the visitors, but this was more than equalled fry the local team. For the third time the line plunges were made, but little ground was gained, and hall lost on downs. When Ashland attempted a pass, the ball wa pushed over their line, scor ing a touchback for l'latlsmouUi. During tho remainder uf t tie game, the ball was in Ashland's tcrruo.y most of the time, and t:ie game closed with I'lattsmouth VI, and Ashland 0. Services ct Presbyterian Church. The congregations of the Christian, Methodist and I'resbylerlan churches assembled in the evening at the Pres byterian church to hold union Thanks giving services. An anthem rendered by the choir and a .selection by a quar tette composed of Messrs. H. A. Me Elwain, M. W. Twitchell. Mrs. .1. W. (iambic and Miss Litcllo Laird were highly appreciated by the large audi ence present. The Thanksgiving ser vices wereopenirt by Lev. Il iu'g;.tc, who gave a shoit scripture reading, which was followed by a prayer. The address of the evening was de livered by Lev. A. L. .ink, pastor of the Christian chinch, Inn very grati fying manner. Tho speaker discoursed upon matters pertaining to Thanks- giving in a very eloquent, entertain ing arid edifying way, which met with tho hearty approval of the piens"d audit rice. Surprise Judge W. H. Newell. A very delightful surprise was spriin;; upon Judge W. II. Newell yes' terday evening, when In response to an invitation to take dinner with his daughter, he sojourned to the home of J. M. lloberts. Arriving there be was very much astonished to rind ten of his old friends waiting to assist him In observing li s sixty-ninth birthday annlvcrsay. At 0 o'clock the gathering repaired to the dining room, where a bounte' ous dinner was parta'.cn of, Inter spersed with many pleasant renilnls censes and a social time.

In conversation with an employe of the Missouri Pacific, he stated that the people along the line need not worry about the taking olf of the two new trains. The trains are doing a great deal better than was expected and the passenger traftlo Is increasing dallv. Tins U good news to I'latts mouth people and especially to the business men. Thero never has been such excellent accommodations on this Mild before, mid besides being pleasing to those on tbe west side of the county, wlio have business at the county seat, itisjust as much so to Plattsmouth merchants. THE REASONS VERf SIMPLE Journal Patrons Wonder Why We Do Not Print Commissioners' Proceedings. Many of the Journal patrons throughout the county are wonder ing why we do not publish the county commissioners' proceedings. The rea son we do not do so Is simply this: When the Journal was given the coun ty printing, amounting, under con tract, not to exceed twenty-live dol lars, we published the proceedings free of charge, and also printed all road notices free. The contract for this small amount of printing was given by the republican board to a pa per of their political faith, and they have been paying this paper for print ing the proceedings each tlmo and also paying for printing road notices; work that we performed without a cent of pay. We do not think such action on the part of the commission ers Is right, and this is why we refuse to do work for nothing that another paper gets paid for, and this is. why we have refused to publish the pro ceedings, l here are nearly as many democratic tax payers In Cass county as there are republicans, and they have right to know what the com missioners aie doing with their mon ey. P.ut the niggardly effort on the part of tin: commissioners to get the Journal to print their proceedings free ot charge won t work. Men who are elected to no business for tbe people should not let their polit ical prejudices weaken them by not giving such printing to a paper that has tin l.irg est circulation by several hundred of any paper In the county. Diphtheria at Weeping Water. A special from Weeping Water, no der date or Novoiniier siys: " l o" home of Dr. J. 11. Hungatowas placed under qua ran tine yesterday on account of diphtheria. This is the fourth fam ily to have been quarantined for the disease, two of which have already been released." . ... . Service Never Delter. There is talk of another change in 1 1 a 1 1 1 service on the Missouri Pacllic. ome dissatisfaction is noted on I he line south between this place and Au burn and an effort may he made to nivc them more than one train a day. They deserve more. Tim servico here never was better, ami you cm hear more trood words for the Missoiui I'a- c i tic In one day than you could before o a month.--Weeping Water Herald. Another Party for the West. W. H. Tool, the hustling real estate man ot Weeping water, was hi the city Fiid.iy and gave the Journal a ousant call. Ho informed us that he would leave again next week with a party of prospective land huveis. l'he part y w-iil go to Chase county, where some excellent bargains in firm ing and gra.vs lands are olferrd. Mr. Fool has perhaps disposed of more western land than any three real estate deale.s in Lass county, and Is untiring InhisclTorts to please those who desire to settle In the west per manently. Ship Your Presents Early. "It Is an old story," says a local i m press agent, "and I suppose the news paper men get tired of publishing It year after year, but the public forgets. Vou might make It short this year by saying that last year more Christmas presents were delivered after Christ mas than before that date. There was really a rush of package delivery for three days after Christmas. That means that everybody should have been three days earlier In shipping." The Christmas express business Is unlike most other business congestions In that It strikes the whol count ry at one time and no section is exempt: therefore the companies cannot draw on one section for reserve forces. Lv cry express office In the country and every train carrying express matter Is filled to overflowing with Christmas traffic. Insca.sons of prosperity the business Is so good that the express companies haven't the facilities for handling It. THE WEDDING BELLS CHIME Attorney A. L.

The post office robbery In Chicago a few )oars ago Is a good example of the case with which stolen postage stamps can bo disposed of, for no trace of the perpe trators was ever discovered, although nearly 100,Cih) worth of stamps wire stolen and these mostly of small de nominations.
