This Qusstion Should Be Answered
Easily by Plattsmouth People.
Which is wiser to have confidence in
the opinions of your fellow-citizens, of
people you know, or depend on state
ments made by utter strangers resid
ing in far-away places? Read the fol
lowing; Mrs. Claude Butler, of 613 South 10th
street, Plattsmouth, says: "My two
little boys were troubled with a weak
ness of the kidneys and auxiliary organs.
The older child complained much of
backache and headache. We were kept
busy in trying remedies, hoping to find
something that would overcome the
difficulties but with little success until
I got Doan's Kidney Pills at Gering &
Co. 's drug store. The use of this pre
paration soon made a marked improve
ment in both cases. It is needless to
say that our appreciation of Doan's
Kidney Pills which brought about such
positive results, is exceedingly great."

Married in PlattSmOUth.
Arthur I. Cleghorn of the Nebraska
metropolis, and Miss Nina J.Blue hailing
from Council Bluffs, stepped off the
train at this place this morning, and
notwithstanding the deep snow,
and the absence of the county
judge from the city, secured a
a license from the clerk, Miss Gertrude
! Beeson, who can issue as good a license
as the judge, and were soon made one.
With the necessary papers in their
hands they immediately found the of
fice of Judge Archer, who tied the
knot that made them happy. The groom
was 23 years old and the bride 19. The
young man was formerly a resident of
this county, having lived for a number
of years near Weeping Water, and
went to Omaha a few years ago, where
he has a good position.
The young couple were accompanied
by W. L. Philips, who with John R.
Denson witnessed the ceremony. They
will make their home in Omaha. The
Journal extends best wishes for their
future welfare and prosperisy.
Getting Into Clear With Lines
The Burlington electrican, J. A. Col
lins of Ashland, was in the city this
morning placing a telephone in the
coach shops, which is attached to the
system which has been installed in the
shops. Mr. Collins says that he will go
to work immediately in the installing
of 'phones at Gilmore, Ft. Crook and
Pappio, which will be connected with
Oreapolis, from which place there is a
line connecting Oreapolis and Platts
mouth. The Missouri river bridge and
Pacfic Junction.
In this line will also be placed Cedar
Creek. The new arrangements will
solve the problem for the company of
operators at Cedar Creek, Pappio Ft.
Crook and Gilmore Junction. Mr. Col
lins says that it is the intention to make
the lines matallic circuit, and that the
company will have them in operation
before the law becomes effective March
4th, next.
Snow Stops Work in Plaining Mills.
The plaining mills at the Burlington
shops are taking a rest on account of
the lack of lumber to do the work which
is crowding very much. The recent
heavy snow is so great and the facili
ties for getting away with it is so limited
that the lumber, while in the yards,
cannot be gotten to the mills until the
snow is disposed of.

Situation Net as Bad as It Used
Ee, but There Is Yet Necessity
for Removal of
The national capital, v.'.lh all its
pride of marble and bronze, its broad
avenues and green circles, is never
theless declared to be "rotten at the
core." The phrase Is Jacob Uiis". He
"turned Washington Inside out" a few
years ago and went back to New
York's east side for a breath of fresh
air, says the New York Sun.
Things have taken a turn for the
better since then, but the whited
sepulcher Is still a likely metaphor to
bo used in connection with the na
tion's City Beautiful. Last spring
President Roosevelt Rot so stirred up
over some reports of the Washington
alleys that he appointed a commission
to devise a way of removing the literal
and moral stench from the people's
These alleys are without a parallel
In any other city. There are 2SG of
them, and they harbor a population of
20,000 persons. When Jacob litis de
clared that Washington had a rotten
spot at the core he added:
"I mean that, for I have In mind the
hidden back alleys, so well hidden that
I passed them day after day, pleased
with the fine front the block was mak
ing and without the least suspicion of
what It harbored within."
Perhaps if he had known the names
of some of those pestilent byways he
might have suspected their nature.
Ambush court Is one. Blood alley is
another, Jonah row is another, and
there are Pig alley, Splash alley, Cat
alley and other names full of signifi
cance. But the name Is not an unfailing
guide. Otherwise Snow alley would not
be the tortuous, filthy lane which It
really is. And as for Queen's court
not two blocks from the British em
bassy it would scarcely have shown
itself to the shocked Investigators, as
it did for years, a labyrinth of dirt,
disease and Immorality.
"The alleys," says Charles F. Weller
of tho Associated Charities of Wash
ington, "are hidden inner worlds,
standing often in close proximity to
the chief centers of the city's wealth
and culture. Chinch row, not seven
blocks from the White House and only
three blocks from Dupont Circle, was
Indescribably bad."
Chinch row was an arm of Queen's
court, and it was only recently that,
after years of war upon It, its hovels
were torn down. Some of the deplora
ble houses remain, however, so near
the fashionable center of the city that
the contrast is startling.
The ordinary newspaper docs not
print the sort of reading which the
descriptions of many of these alleys
make. It is hardly fit for anything but
the reports of charity committees, and
even they furnish an apology with
each report. Very few of the alley
houses have either water or sewerage j
connection, and it is hardlv to be won- i
dered at that the health authorities of ,
the city are always fighting typhoid. j
Prior to 1903 the government bureau ;
of labor collected for several years of- j
ficial statistics of cities. In its bul- i
letin for 1902 Washington was shown !
as having the highest death rate j
among the 39 largest cities in the I
It was particularly strong in typhoid
fever, tuberculosis, grip and malaria.
Some of the causes certainly are not
far to seek, no further in fact than the j
inside of many fair appearing city
blocks. i
He Cleaned the Oysters.
Three well known young men from
Washington went out on a hunting trip
recently, and, as they intended to
make a day of it, a quart of nice,
large oysters was taken along for the
noonday meal. When noon came the
party made their way to camp with no
game, and the one that had been
elected cook set about preparing the
oysters for frying.
He had just started to roll them in
the cracker crumbs when one of the
others butted in with the question:
"Well, aren't you going to clean
those oysters? Or do you expect us to
eat them without being cleaned?"
His companion Immediately got wise
and backed up the first spe?.ker, de
claring that no oyster would pass his
Hps without first being cleaned. The
cook looked up with mild surprise,
and declared that he had never heard
of oysters being cleaned, but if it was
customary he was willing to do so.
And he carefully cleaned the oysters.
The White House Plate.
The fact that the White House is
equipped with a service of solid gold
plate for use on state occasions is not
talked about too loudly, as it seems,
somehow, to jar on democratic sim
plicity. But the fact that the service
is there is recalled by the fact that
it needs refurbishing, and jewelers
from New York, Baltimore and Phila
delphia are bidding for the work. The
plate was bought during the Van
Buren administration. It is made up of
four large candelabra, five fruit dishes,
and eight table mirrors, which are so
fashioned that they can be formed into
one large centerpiece. It is claimed
that this service of plate is one of
the handsomest in the world, and im
presses even those diplomats -who
have een the plate of the wealthiest
European courts. The value of the
White House plate is not generally

Very few voices are so naturally

A woman should speak In a low
voice. She should not allow her
voice to raise Itself to a high pitch.
A shrill-voiced woman is terrible.
She should not shout her orders to
the servants down the stairs, nor call
to any one who may be In another
part of the house. This shouting and
raising of the voice spoils tho tone
and quality of the voice and tends to
make it harsh. A pretty voice Is a
powerful attraction In a woman and
she who would add to her charms a
wondrous fascination should cultivate
a voice "ever soft, gentle and low."

Model of Economy.
A certain farmer, who is noted for
his closeness in money matters, has
a 12-year-old son, who i3 as industrious
as his father is penurious.
Recently the father and son made a
compact whereby the latter would re
ceive ten cents for every cord of wood
he sawed and piled in the woodshed.
Immediately the boy became very
busy at the woodpile and his earn
ings have been pilin? up at a
rate, his mother keeping her
hard-earned savings for him.
"What are you going to do with all
your money?" the thrifty youth wan
recently asked.
"Coin' to buy a new saw with it,"
was the reply.
