A -ting County Will Robertson today
filed a complaint before Justice Archer
against George Peters living near
Avoca charging him with assault upon
the person of one Chris Shoemaker.
Shoemaker is a tenant of Peters' and
the trouble started over shelling some
corn; Peters declined to let Shoemaker
use the elevator at the crib which was
a double one and made him carry his corn
somethirty feet to the sheller. This led to
an altercation and Peters smote Shoe
maker a violent thump with his fist, so
Shoemaker says. The Sheriff will bring
George in to talk the matter over with

horst returned last evening from Elm

in attendance at the teachers institute
in session there last week. During the
session of the institute Mrs. Sattler
visited at the home of Fred Bauers and
with the families of Philip Lohnes and
had a royal time. The party was en
tertained in the finest possible manner.
As they were located so close to the
city that it was an easy matter to trav
el back and forth they kept things on
the go and when they returned they felt
that they had certainly had a great time.
They believe that there are no better
entertainers in the country than their

they had to return home as soon as
Denies ths Charges.
Attorney Byron Clark acting for the
defendant Matthew McQuinn in the
damage case brought against him by
Mrs. Flora Argo. has filed an answer
in district court. The answer consists
of a general denial of all the charges
made by Mrs. Argo in her petition ex
cept that she is the wife of John Argo.
It charges further that the plaintiff,
Mrs. Argo, assaulted the defendant
with intent to do him great bodily in
jury, and that he, the defendant,
merely defended himself without doing
the plaintiff any narm. The answer
further alleges that any injuries the
plaintiff sustained were occasioned by
her own wilful negligence and actions,
and further asks that the petition be
dismissed and the defendant discharged.
The case will likely be for hearing at
the coming term of ccurt.

AND CLERKS MEET
Closing Hour Agreed Upon
Effective Sept- 15.
The persistent and systematic en
deavors of the Salespeoples' association
of Plattsmouth have made it possible
to announce that the merchants of
Plattsmouth have agreed to close their
ii s(ie-tive places of business at 7 p.m.,
w th the exception of Saturdays, pay
d iv, the day following, and the entire
month of December. This agreement
is to go into effect on September 15,
1 hat this movement win result in
mutual benefit to the merchants, their
clerks a id the purchasing public, is
proven by the actual experience of
other cities. In the past Plattsmouth
has stood practically alone in its "hit
or miss" business hours.
The early closing hour is a benefit to
the merchants because of an increased
interest of their clerks in their respec
tive businesses, a more brisk and wil
ling service, brought about by shorter
hours of business a service that it is
impossible to get under the "hit and
A clerk who knows that there is
nothing in life but to work, for a seem
ingly interminable day, go to bed, go
to work, ad infinitum, ad nauseam, can
not give his or her employer the brisk
and cheerful service that is absolutely
necessary to business success; a benefit
to the clerks in the opportunity afforded
to get acquainted with their family, to
draw an occasional breath of outdoor
air, to indulge in recupeiative recrea
tion, to get a fresh grip mentally and
physically, and enable them to give the
purchasing public the cheerful, willing
service that is its due. The benefits to
the purchasing public are obvious, self
evident, and the clerk's association is
confident that the good citizens will aid
it in making the definite closing hour
a permanent thing in Plattsmouth. The
state of Nebraska has said that the
length of a day's labor shall be no
more than nine hours. The city of
Plattsmouth should be more than will
ing to help the salespeople to get within
at least one hour of the legal limit.
The clerk's association has arranged
with Mr. W. J. Pilkington of Des
Moines, la., editor of the Merchant's
Journal, to preside at a banquet to be
given at the hotel Riley on the evening
of September 10. Mr. Pilkington wil!
address the merchants and salespeople
of Plattsmouth at that time on topics
of vital importance to both.

DEATH OF MRS.
Died in Cmaha Monday and Funeral
Died He:gel. Mrs. Joseph at Om
aha, Neb., on Monday, August 31, 110S,
aged 33 years. Funeral September 2,
11)08, from St. John's Catholic church.
Mrs. Mary Heigel died last Monday
morning at Immanuel hospital from
complications following an operation
for gall stones. Her death was a great
shock to her large circle of friends and
acquaintances as her illness had been of
brief duration and the general supposi
tion was that she was getting along
finely. In her loss the community loses
a excellent lady one whom all knew to
admire and love. She wras just upon
threshold of womanhood with the prom
ise of a long and fruitful life before her
when the dread destroyer came, and in
his might bore her away, Such deaths
seem inexplicable that one with the
full strength of womanhood upon her
should be so suddenly called to face the
hereafter is almost beyond comprehen
sion. Born in Germany some thirty three
years ago, she came to this country
about twelve years since with a brother
and sister settling in this vicinity.
Three years later she was married to
Jos. Heigel on August 18th, and he,
with three children survive her.
During all her life this good woman
was a faithful communicant of the
Catholic church, and at the end
faith looked forth fearlessly upon
future sustained and soothed by
teachings of that holy church.
The funeral which took place
morning was from St. John's Church in
this city, and was quite largely attend
ed, the old friends and neighbors driv-
ing in to pay a test tribute to a noble
lady. The service was conducted at
the churcn by Lev. rather Shine, and
was the high mass for the departed, a
beautiful and touching service.
The pall bearers were old friends and
acquaintances of the family from this
city an 1 vicinity, who were as follows:
John Meisinger, jr., John Fight, Frank
Blotzer, H. M. Soennuhsen, Ed. Donat
and Philip Hoi-p.
THE RED SOX GO
DOWN TO DEFEAT
T.i 3 Louiiville Team Beat Them by a
Score of 9 to 2.
It was a fine beating the Louisville
ball team administered Mr. Wilken's
young men Tuesday. They beat them
up one side and down the other and
made them look like the proverbial two
spot in a brand new deck. They swatted
the slants and curves of young Mr.
Wilkens many times and oft. and the
air at the park was surcharged with
base hits and hits that were for more
bases. Altogether the afternoon was a
saturnalia of gore for the Louisville
boys. To add to the humiliation of the
team, they went all to pieces and fielded
worse than the veriest amateurs, Ram
sey, Larson and Schneider being par
t'cularly offensive in this respect. They
seemed bent upon reaching first place
in the number of errors made, and it
could well be called a tie.
The manager asserts they were
each charged with four errors. For
Louisville the team played good ball
throughout, batted well and fielded
finely. Hulfish pitched for them and !
had the heavy hitters of the local team
completely at his mercy. At no time
did the locals have even a look-in at the
game. The tabulated score was not
kept as the harrowing details would
prevent anyone ever going to another
ball game. The score was 'J to 2.
Scalded His Hand.
Wednesday Marion Dickson, one of
he Journal's carriers, sustained a badly
scalded hand, caused by some boiling
water being spilled upon it by the ac
cidental jolting of a dipper in which he
was carrying the water, causing the
water to splash out on his hand. The
burn while very painful, the flesh be
ing badly blistered, is not serious, but
will require some time to heal over.
