FATAL ACCIDENT IN ST. LOUIS
Celebrates St. John's Day.
The annual social by the Masons,
celebrating St. John's day, was given
n their hall Thursday evening. The at
tendance was unusually large, the de
lightful weather tempting many from
the country to drive in and help cele
brate. The social and refreshment
committee were busy providing enter
tainment and seeing that everyone
was having a good time. Cards were
provided for those who cared to play.
Some good music was given and de
licious refreshments served by some
of the young Masons who made excel
lent waiters and were careful to leave
nothing undone that they ought to
have done. A number of inmates of the
Masonic Home were able to be pres
ent and enjoyed the evening thorough
ly. The 27th of December is always a
red letter day to the Masons and their
families and a day looked forward to
with pleasurable anticipation by those
able to attend the festivities. Those
who were not present last evening
missed a delightful time.

Through a message received in this
city, Thursday, just after the Jour
nal had gone to press, the sad in tell i
gence or the death of Edward Duke,
as the result of an accident in the rail
rouij varus in .t. iouis, ;uo., was con
veyed to his father John S., and
brother Charles, and other relatnes
and friends in this city. Tiie message
contained the sad news that Edward
had been killed on the night of De
cember -y, but gave no further parti
culars of the fatal accident.
The unfortunate man was about
fifty-two years of age, and was reared
to manhood in this city, where he
worked at the occupation of a switch
man, when the railroad ferry was em
ployed to transport the trains back
and forth across the river. For many
years he has been a switchman in the
yards in St. Louis and his sudden
death is a great shock to his many
friends and relatives in this vicinity.
The funeral will be held in St. Louis,
and interment made there.

Everything1 depends upon
your nerves. It is nerve force
that causes the brain to direct
the motion of your body; it is
nerve force that causes your
heart to pulsate, and send the
blood through your veins; it
is nerve force that causes your
stomach to digest food, your
kidneys to filter the blood, and
the liver to secrete bile.
In fact, nerve force is the
power that runs j'our body, so
if you feel worn-out, irritable,

well, have pain or misery
anywhere, your nerves are

Tough on Bachelors.
Tom Mason In the Delineator delincs
the word bachelor in the following
terms. Of course Plattsmouth is in
fested with its share, who no doubt,
will read what he says of them with
in- i i .
i.acneiors can oe iouna roaming
at large in all parts of the world. They
inhabit apartments, clubs, open lields,
bodies of water and music halls. They
are also seen behind the scenes. Thev
hover at times near front gates, and
have been found in back parlors with
the aid of a searchlight.
"Bachelors are nomadic by nature
and variable in their tastes, never go
ngwittione girl loug enough to be
dangerous. They nourish in large cit
es and are generally used at dinner
parties to fill in with.
"Every bachelor was once a baby
being the single instance of where his
tory does not repeat itself.
"Bachelors are divided into two
classes selfish and unselfish thosp.
who are unborn being the unselfish.
"The open season for bachelors is in
the summer time, but on account of
their wily natures they are not easily
lured from their haunts for more than
two weeks at a time, and are likely to
elude the pursuer.
"Bachelors make love easily, but
rarely keep it. Rich bachelors are
haunted openly and shamelessly, and
are always in great danger. Those
who finally escape are as a rule use
less ever afterwards.
"There can be no doubt that the
bachelor is a menace to civilization.
The fact that he leaves nothing to be
desired in the long run counts against

Angry and chagrined, leading mem
bers of St. Paul's Methodist Episco
pal church In Lincoln, Thursday
morning, condemned the state teach
ers' association, and declared that the
association could not have the church
next year for the purpose of holding a
convention. This wrath was kindled
by the fact that a vaudeville program
was given by the University glee club
on the church platform. The club
had been ordered to give the "whole
thing," but the singers deliberately
omitted the imitation of the Floro
dora sextet. Buck and wing dancing
were given however. We know of
some members of the association who
would even "boot" at a proposition
to give such an entertainment In the
school building let alone church.

Funeral of C. W. Moore.
The funeral of Christopher W. Moore
who passed away Monday at the
Masonic Home, occurred from the
Home this afternoon, the services be-

and the last tribute being said by

Home the remains were conveyed to
the Oak Hill cemetery for interment.
At the meeting of the city "dads,"
held last evening In the council cham
ber, the regular business was quickly
disposed of to make way for a general
discussion of the three lighting propo
sitions, of which one was introduced
last evening from the Nebraska Light
ing company, who proposed to install
the old form of gas lights, to be lighted
a short time after sunset and then
turned out just before daylight by the
village lamp lighter of a decade past.
The contract further provided that
the Weilsbaugh burners should be
used and the installment and repair
of lamps be made at the expense of
the above company, who should re
ceive $10 per annum for each light
used by the city. A bond of $1,000
was attached to the proposition, hut
this was not much of an inducement
for the council to consider the lamp
lighting system very favorably.
In regard to the proposition made
by J. A. Barlenger of Glen wood to
light the streets with electric lights
the gas and lighting committee made
a partial report of the divers matters
to be considered in taking this propo
sition, and recommended that the city
make such a contract that on . six
months' notice they would be priv
ileged to purchase the plant. There
were a great many questions that they
desired to have answered before pass
ing upon any proposition. Mr. Bar-
enger was present at the council
meeting to explain the various points
raised during the discussion. A com
munication from Mayor Jno. W'. Stein
haur of Nebraska City to the city
council and mayor of this citv was
read by the latter. From this missive
t would seem that the Nebraska City
mayor is up against the question of
renewing the franchise or of purchas
ing the twenty year old lighting plant
in that city. The figures given show
that the Nebraska City people have
forty arc lights at a cost of $4,124 per
annum. After an extended discussion
of the merits of the various lights the
matter was referred to the gas and
lighting committee, who are to set a
date for the council togoover to Glen
wood and inspect the electric service
that the people of that city receive
from Mr. Barlenger. Councilman Sat
tler suggested that they sneak over
some dark night when the Glenwood
man would not be aware of their pres
ence, and this was unanimously adopted
by the council.
