There Was Nothing Too Rich For
Them in the Way of a
I'icnicing, fishing and boating made
up three features of one of the most
enjoyable picnic parties given in this
vicinity for a long time. The party
put in practically all day Friday
down near the big Burlington bridge
and they had exactly what they started
out to have a great time There was
nothing too rich for them in the way of
a good dinner, they having gone down
in the morning prepared to have a big
picric dinner and they had it. Everyone
had done their share toward the feast
and the good things to eat were innum
erable. To add to the enjoyment they
had some of the finest catfish the Mis
souri produces, and everyone knows
what the Missouri can produce in this
line. They are sure they caught them
all themselves and that made the fish
taste much better than the ordinary
purchased fish. Two of the fish were
fine ones, one being a big 6J pound
channel cat while the other was a 3J
pound yellow cat. These two with num
erous smaller ones made enough to go
around the dinner table, in fact they
went around the supper table also for
the party found they had come provided
with enough to keep them busy eating
both meals and stayed until after the
shades of night had fallen over the
The party consisted of Messrs. and
Mesdames Wm. McCauley, C. A. Rawls,
J. II. Salsbury, J. W. Gamble. W. L.
Cooper, E. D. Cummins, Mrs. Davis
and son, Charles Davis, of Geneseo,

son, Ellen Pollock, Messrs. Ambrose
Searle, Don and Jas. Patterson.
Pleased With Settlement.
Mr. O. G. Hale is in receipt of a
draft from the Woodmen Accident As
sociation covering the loss of time sus
tained by him by reason of the accident
which occurred July ?. On that date
Mr. Hale was injured by some lime
getting in his eye necessitating his
quitting his work for quite a while. He
was a member of the association and
promptly made out his claim for the in
jury which the company allowed after
investigating the proofs. The amount
of the check is $31.25 and Mr. Hale is
much pleased at the promptness with
which the company settled.
They Enjoyed a Good Time.
Thursday afternoon Garfield park
was the scene of a jolly little picnic
party given to the Presbyterian Sunday
School class of Mrs. D. C. Morgan by
that estimable lady. She has a fine
class of young ladies and they certainly
had an opportunity to enjoy themselves
to the utmost. The afternoon was
spent in various ways, the cool inviting
shade holding parties who cared little
for other joys than that afforded by a
quiet nook and a quiet visit while in
other portions of the park games and
amusements of various kinds held
forth throughout the day. There was
a delightful picnic luncheon upon the
grass which all made the most of, and
the day was voted a grand success in
Lost His Walch Charm.
Last Thursday, while rollirg a bairtl
out of Gorder's store, Frank Wheeler,
the harnessmaker, lost a neat watch
charm. The charm caught on the bar
rel and was torn loose from the fob.
Mr. Wheeler did not notice it at the
time, and returned to the store, where
the loss was discovered. As soon as he
could, he hurried to the depot, where
he hoped to find someone who had pick
ed it up, as it must have been seen by
some of the passengers going that way.
He was unable to locate it, however.
The charm had a horse head on one
side while the other was a bluestone
Later The charm was found by
Mr. Wheeler aince the above was in
The Present Road Law.
A reporter for the Journal in his vis
its to various sections of Cass county,
finds from the expressions of those who
are directly interested in good roads,
the people are dissatisfied with the
present system of working them.
While the present law may be satisfac
tory in some counties of the state, it is
not so in this county. The people in
the rural districts are clamoring for a
return to the old law, and as they are
the ones mostly interested, the farmers
should begin to get their petitions in
shape for the legislature this winter to
abolish the present law and return to
the old one.
Small Audience Greets Open
ing Piece at Parmele.
The season at the Parmele opened
last night with "A Stranger From
Berlin," a so-called comedy drama,
which in reality was a melodrama.
There was a very light attendance,
but fully as much as the play warrant
ed. There is a plot to the piece running
about as follows: Hans von Wagner,
"the stranger from Berlin," is kidnap
ped when a child and carried off to
Germany, where he grows to manhood.
His sister. Pearl is kidnapped at the
same time and is raised by her captor as
his daughter. The father of the two
children is ruthlessly slaughtered by
the scheming villain, who then "snakes
away" the fortune justly due Hans and
Pearl. Hans returns to America, and
after many hair-breadth escapes, with
much gun play and loud talk, Hans
finds his "leetle sister" and runs the
villain to earth, recovering the vast
fortune which is invested in some of
Tom Lawson's companies.
There are a number of specialties in
troduced in the piece, several of which
were fairly good and the remainder of
which it were better to say nothing
about. The work of Jack S. Jeffers
the leading man, was very fair, his
specialties being the redeeming feature
of the show.
Mrs. Ruffner Entertains.
Thursday afternoon Mrs. P. E. Ruff
ner, at her elegant home on Eighth
street, entertained at a 5 o'clock dinner
Mrs. Wayne Twitchell of Portland, Ore.,
and Misses Amelia and Mary Martens
of this city. The dinner was a fine one,
served as only the charming hostess can
serve, and the party was a very enjoy
The dining room was neatly and taste
fully decorated for the occasion and
every possible effort was made to make j
the afFair one which all would remem
ber. Mrs. Ruffner was assisted in en
tertaining by her daughter, Mrs. Roy
Dodge of Omaha.
Mrs. Twitchell, one of the guests of
honor, was a former resident of this
city and is now in the city the guest of
the Misses Martens. She will probably
remain here for several months. Miss
Mary Martens, another of the guests,
has just graduated from the Presbyter
ian hospital at Omaha as a trained
nurse. She has the distinction of grad
uating as one of the most proficient
that splendid hospital has turned out.
She will immediately enter upon the
pursuit of her profession, in which her
many friends predict a brilliant success.
Drury Thebus is taking in the state fair
today going up on Xo. 19. He reports
that his brother, Glen, who was quite
ill for a long time in Minnesota is slowly
piogressing toward recovery. It is
thought he can soon come home, and his
mother is making arrangements to that
end now. The news of his recovery
will be hailed with joy by his many
