Miss Martling Fitzgerald of Burling

in the city for several days as a guest
of the family of W. T. Scotten. She
has just completed a trip to Colorado,
visiting Denver, Colorado Springs and
other interesting portions of that state,
and stopped off here on her return
home. She made a short visit here
some three weeks ago, and during the
brief interval she spent in the city she
made many friends who regret the
short length of time she could stay.

In The Journal's mention of the flat

this land was sold him through the

to take a party down in the same sec

resident of Lincoln. She was born here

previous to the removal of her parents
t Lincoln. Sh3 is returning home from
an extended tr'p to the Pacific coast,
wiere she nut several former Platts
mouth people, including Frank Smith,
once a Burlington engineer out of this
place, who married Miss Bessie Peter

aunt of Miss Elizabeth.
Miss Petersen is a handsome, bright
and intelligent young woman, and saw
much on her trip which greatly im

in the political situation and expressed
the opinion that California was strongly

the sentiment was more divided.
Miss Browne left on the fast mail

He Fades Away
In The Journal of yesterday mention
was made of the police landing one
genus hobo in the bastile. This morn
ing this male was brought before the
bar of justice, Judge M. Archer, on the
bench, and allowed to explain the rea
son for his mixed state yesterday. He
gave his name as John O'Keefe and
stated to the court that he was a labor
ing man by trade, having been in the
habit of moving large sections of rocks
of the cretaceous period or some other
period out of the quarries at Cedar
Creek and other places, but after work
ing thirty-three hours, he had heard
voices calling him to the haunts of the
great city, and he had come to Platts
mouth. Arriving here he encountered
the rum demon, and fought him a fierce
battle in which the demon was surely
conquering him when the officers swoop
ed down upon him and stowed him in
the calaboose where he rested last night.
He thought that he could leave town
inside of fifteen mh.tuA if the Court
would give him a chance and the Judge,
after due deliberation, decided he had
a chance coming to him, so smoothly
works the wheels of justice, and. he
gave him one hour to execute his prom
ise. As an inducement to make him
carry out his commendable action, the
court gave him one dollar's worth of
the celebrated brand of justice with the
trimmings suspending same on condi
tion that the land that had known him
knew him no more. And in the end
John made it be a large vacancy
where he ;was, and is now mingling
with the denizens of Iowa.
Hasn't Fully Recovered.
Art Huey, the popular traveling man
of Nebraska City, was in the city last
evening interviewing our merchants and
getting his usual quota of business. He
departed this morning for Des Moines,
la., going upon the remainder of his
annual vacation, which will be about
one week. He has not yet entirely
recovered from the effects of the run
away which he had several weeks ago,
and is still pretty sore.
There will 'be another good game of
ball here Sundav, as Cedar Creek is
coming, full force. Pitcher Kelker has
recovered from his bioken rib, and
thinks he can get into the game.

WILL BUY NEW
Members of Farmers Elevator
Company Go To Omaha
For That Purpose
There Were was quite a number of
the members of the Farmers Elevator
Company of Murray goirg to Omaha
this morning on the early Burlington
train, to inspect and purchase machin
ery for the new elevator which they
have just completed at Murray. The
gentlemen are all prominent farmers
living near that paint and are especial
ly interested in the success of the new
company which means so much to them
and their interest'. It is their inten
tion when they arrive at the metropolis
to give the matter of machinery, the
closest consideration and select only
that which they are sure will be fitted
to their needs.
The party included Chas. Spangler,
manager of the elevator, Chas. Cook
and son, Frank, C. H. Shopp, wife and
little daughter, Henry Creamer, Lloyd
Gapen, Oscar Gapen, Glen Vallery and
T. W. Vallery. It can be said for Walt
Vallery that he insisted that he was
the simon-pure, lightning rod man and
that he was going to Omaha for the one
purpose of buying a carload of light
ning rods. It can also be said that Mr.
Shopp looked more like a man going to
a baby show for he has a prize winner
with him in the shape of one of the
prettiest and sweetest little girls in the
whole world. It rmght also be added
that Guy Ingersoll at Havelock had bet
ter watch his mail for the next few
days, as somebody mailed postal cards
to him from Plattsmouth. The report
er is forbidden to mention any names
but it was very near someone in this
O'NeiSI the Gainer.
The city of O'Neill is the gainer by
the acquisition of one of the younger
generation of Plattsmouth citizens.
John Hiber, Jr., tomorrow will open up
a new jewelry store in that enterprising
city, and the good people are to be con
gratulated upon securing so sterling a
young man for their town. John is a
Plattsmouth product, having been born
here, and living here virtually all his
life until the last few years when his
business had taken him to other points.
He graduated from the local schools in
1902 and immediately began a study of
the jewelry business. His first experi
ence was in the jewelry store of Henry
Snyder ot this place, after which he
went to Omaha where he studied the
manufacture of jewelry in the establish
ment of E. R. Zielke & Co. After his
course there he entered a Lincoln jewel
ry house and later formed a connection
with J. H. Riffe at Hastines, Neb.
From this it can be seen he has had
ample training in his business and can
give the citizens of O'Neill all they
want in his line.
For himself personally, it can be said
he is a very pleasant, affable young
man, one of the kind the public likes to
meet, a man of sterling integrity and
honesty, and one worthy in every possi
ble respect. His friends in this city,
and they are legion, all wish him the
greatest possible success in his chosen
business knowing that it will be fully

Despite Bad Weather Big
Crowd Hears Band
Although the weather 'it.&t evening
was very threatening and it looked as
if the band concert scheduled for the
evening might have to be postponed un
til a more propitious time, a large
crowd was on the streets to hear the
And they were not disappointed as ,
the band held forth as advertised. Last
evening's concert was given up the 1
movable platform located between j
Fifth and Sixth streets on Main, and it j
was one of the most successful given '
this summer. j
The program was of the usual high
standard of music selected by Director ',
Janda, and consisted of a choice collec- i
tion of marches, overtures, waltzes, and
patrols all of which were given with
much taste and ability. The steady
improvement in the quality of the music
given was quite manifest. For the
first time practically, the numbers re
ceived much hearty applause, the people
seeming to finally awake to the fact
that the band was giving them just
what they wanted.
The number which especially pleased
the audience, judged by the applause,
was Laurendeau's "War Songs of the
Boys in Blue," an old time favorite
medley of war songs of the civil war
period, while several of the late pieces
were vigorously applauded. Taken as
a whole the concert met with popular
approval and there was much satisfac
tion expressed. The change in the time
of holding the concerts from Saturday
night to Wednesday night also met with
much approval, the people generally
expressing themselves as finding it
much more convenient to come down
and listen to the music on Wednesday
evening than on Saturday as, on the
latter evening they were usually too
occupied in shopping for Sunday to
give the concert the desired attention.
ADDS NEW SCALES
H- H. Sosnnichsen Gels
In his search for improved methods
of handling his business H. M. Soen
nichsen yesterday added a fine new
Toledo Computing Scale to his store
equipment. The new scale is the very
latest model of the best scale made,
costing Mr. Soennichsen one hundred
and forty dollars. It is considered the
most accurate scale in -existence, thor
oughly balanced and every part enclos
ed in glass so that it cannot be handled
and thrown out of balance and other
wise injured. It weighs up to twenty
four pounds and is designed for use as
a counter scale. Upon the side next
to the customer there is a dial which
registers to the fraction of the ounce
the exact weight of the purchase, the
figures corresponding to a dial on the
opposite side. This enables both the
customer and the merchant to see the
exact weight of the purchase and pre
vents either being cheated. On the
merchants side there is a scale showing
the price at which articles may be sold
by the pound with a computation for
pounds and ounces at the various rates
up to twenty-forr pounds. There is a
reflecting glass over the scale by which
the customer can look and see for him
self just what the article comes to in
money. The scale is guaranteed by the
makers to be absolutely honest and any
defect in the machine will be promptly
remedied by them. L. R. Miller, the
district representative of the Toledo
Scale Company, installed the machine
Corn From Oklahoma
Mrs. Chas. Chassot, and sons, William
and Peter, are visiting relatives in the
city and vicinity, having come up from
Pocassett, Oklahom, where they now
reside several days ago. They report
conditions in that section as being fine.
They brought along some specimen ears
of corn which Mr. Chassot "has raised
this year and they are certainly prize
winners. The ears are long, entirely
filled out and the corn is good and hard.
They expect a ield of from forty-five
to seventy-five bushels to the acre
which will net them a handsome return.
They are more than delighted with
Oklahoma and consider it the garden
spot of the world. They will visit a
few days longer before returning to

Mr. John White, of 33 Highland Ave.,
Houlton, Maine,says:"Have been troub

spring. Last winter I tried many ad
vertised remedies, but the cough contin
ued untill I bought a 50c. bottle of Dr.
King's New Descovery; before that was
half gone, the cough was all gone. This
winter the same happy result has fol

the annual cough. I am now convinced

No. 7. the Burlintfton faft mail, add
ed another life to its long toll through
Iowa last Monday when its wheels
ground up E. M. Overton, a laborer on
the "Q" pile driver gang at Hasting.
At the time of the accident, Overton,
was standing upon the main line near
the piledriver which was on a siding
east of the Hasting station. The mail
train came around the curve a short
distant from Overton, at a high rate of
speed, and was upon the unfortunate
man in a second. He saw it coming
but seemed confused and failed to jump
although his companions on the driver
shouted to him.. The train dashed him
him to death in a flash, the remains be

held, the cause of his death being ap

IS WELL PLEASED
WITH THE COUNTRY
C. E. Wescott Talks Entertainly of the
C. E. Wescott, mention of whose re
turn from a trip of several weeks to the
Canadian Northwest was made several
days ago, relates his impressions of that
country in the most enthusiastic man
ner. He is certainly greatly in love
with it and its brilliant future. He de
scribed the wheat which the country
produces as being something extraor
dinary, the straw standing as high as
his head, while the heads were large,
well filled out and heavy. The yield is
more than abundant. The land he finds
also well suited to barley, oats, flax and
vegetables, the spring in that country
coming fully asjearly as in this. Around
the tity ofjCalgary, where he made his
principal point of sojourn, the land is all
settled up and Calgary itself is a flour
ishing city of twenty-five thousand peo
ple, about one quarter of whom are
Americans, one quarter Canadians,
while the remaining one-half i3 made up
of every race of the earth from the son
of sunny Italy to the slant-eyed Celes
tial. The cooks in that country, like most
points on the Pacific coast, are all
Chinese. Calgary is quite a manufac
turing point, there being twenty-five
factories situated there, while it has
one hundred and one jobbing houses.
The city d aws its trade for hundreds of
miles in every direction, selling the Al
berta, Saskatchewan and British Col
umbia provinces. It is a real live
municipality with a city hall costing
$225,000 and a depot on the C. P. Ry.
costing a quarter of a million dollars
besides innumerable private buildings of
great expense. The C. P. Ry. at this
point has two branch lines, the one
running north to Edmonton and the
other south to McLeod. both running
through rich fertile land.
Mr. Wescott found the weather there
delightful, much superior to what it
was farther east, and ahead of the ch
mate of Minnesota and North Dakota
The winters are cold, but the high alti
tude and dry air renders the cold brac
ing and crisp instead of damp and pene
trating. While he was there he found
a blanket necessary at night although
the days were comfortably warm.
He was in Calgary when the great
forest fires swept over Fernie and the
mountains west of there, and saw the
immense pall of smoke that rose from
the burning forests and the doomed vil
lages. In Calgary within a few hours
after the news came of the destruction
of Fernie, a mass meeting was called
and immediately subscribed two thou
sand dollars for the relief of the stricken
city, while two carloads of goods were
dispatched forthwith to the stricken
city. He describes the people as live
and active and up to date in every way.
Mr. Wescott is the owner of a number
of pieces of farm land3 scattered over
the immediate vicinity of Calgary, and
regards his property there a3 among his
