This week they have, placed in the three fire places with tine pressed brick mantles, and is now turned over to the carpenters for finishing work. The rough work is of the popular brown sand stone that comes from Mr. Parmele's own ouarry up near Louisville, and the exterior of the structure is certainly antique in its appearance, out tne interior is strict ly modern in every detail. Concrete walls and lloors in the basement, and the finest of lumber consumed in the upper floors and casings in the various apartments of the upper portion of the building.

McMaken has issued invi tations to all the pioneers of Cass county to meet with him at his home in Plattsmouth on the 22nd day of May to assist him in celebrating his fiftieth anniversary as a Cass county resident. The invitation is not only extended to all his personal pioneer friends, but lie wants all who have been in Cass county fifty years and over to join him in a genuine old fashioned pioneer time.

Permit the Journal to predict that the day will be a pleasant one to all who wish to attend, as Col. McMaken is not much of a man to do things by halves. His whole soul is wrapped up in making the 22d day of May, 1907, one that will always be remembered by the old Cass county settlers as long as they live. As he says the "latch string" will be found dangling on the outside, and the slightest touch from any fifty-year-old residenter of Cass county will open the McMaken home to them for the day. The colonel is making preparations right now for the event, and while he does not really expect a great many to be in attendance, as he is unable to lo cate them, those that do come he in tends to show a royal time.

Rawls Former Local Re ! porter for the Evening Journal. j !;!k, Iiaii, Sunday, May .1, l'.n)7. i Dkai: Fi:ii:m ok tiik Joikn al j Foi: k: Some time has elapsed since I left Plattsmouth, and a 1 am com ; fortably established in Boise thought it about time I was dropping you a line or two. There are a large number of Nebras ka and Iowa people located in Boise j and scarcely a day has gone by without j meeting some one from either of these; ! states or Kansas, but Missouri people i do not seem to be so numerous here or j else I do not happen to run across any ; of them. )tw wurhiiin me sired iasi r ri(jay j when some one hailed me and looking around, I saw F. L. Wrenn. lie has been here about three days longer ! than I have, and Is foreman for the i;;10""'; m m : Omaha man is going to purchase the ! Plattsmouth laundry, and that Mrs. Wrenn is then coming here. Also saw George Anderson last week, and hU wifa came from Plattsmouth last Wednesday. He worked for Pepper burg quite a while, and is with a cigar factory here in Boise. C. S. Polk will be here the middle of May. He has a $;ooo residence here and a good law ! practice. 1 Last Sunday the first Sunday I was ! here Mr. Polk showed me around the ! city, and of all the varieties of (lowers ; and shrubbery, I have never seen any 1 place that would compare with that ! of Boise this time of the year. The J fruit trees, of which there are acres I and acres of prunes, cherry, apple, etc., have lost their blossoms, and the prunes are as large as hazel nuts. Ir rigation is the secret of the wonderful growth of vegetation and orchards. The water is secured from the Boisa river which fiows through the city. The city is well supplied with two electric light plants, three street car lines, two water works sytems one being a hot water system from the natural hot springs in the eastern por tion (if the city. The water has a tcmpature of 132 degrees as it pours from the rocks in a stream as large as a man's body. This water is also cm, ployed to heat a large number of the residences of the city (luring th? cold months of the year. From the city one can see the snow topped mountains at the north while all around can be peen mountains, the foothills of which lie at the outskirts or me city, wnicn is comparatively level, so much so that a large majority of the people ride bicycles, In regard to my work must say that it is very pleasant, but not any more so than that with the Journal, since I have thought it over. The territory I cover includes the court and state house, the city hall, and divers other offices, of which a great many are real estate. Also take In the commercial club rooms which occupy the fourth of a tine business block covering an eighth of a block, In order that I may keep in touch with the home town, would like to have the Journal (the daily) sent to H24 Bannock street, Boise City, Idaho. . M i t - A. 1 ft f . Will see that you get the Capitol News whenever there is anything of interest to Plattsmouth. The Mover-Hay wood-Pettibone mur der trial begins the 8th of May, and it has brought a large number of news paper men from New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and other places, to look after the "dope" for their papers. This trial of the of ficers of the Western Federation of Miners for the murder of Governor Steuenenberg promises to be very in teresting, and preparations are made for handling large crowds and for ex tra editions of the paper. Must close for this spell, hoping to hear from all of you in the near future, I remain Yours Sincerely, Noel B. Bawls. j-. i 1 i A il ; V 5i i v 03C edy.
