Old Tiines Dance.
One of the most Interesting and
pleasant events to be given In the
city during the winter wns the old
country dance at T. J. Sokol hull on
Saturday night. The dance was an
exclusive affair there being invlta
(Ions Issued to a select party of the
old settlers of the city. They came
dressed In the style of fifty years
ago. Many of the Bohemian ladies
came dressed In their bridal gowns
dating back for a period of many
years, fabrics rich and creamy with
age. The styles were those of sev
ral generations gone and were
quaint and unique. The attendance
was large for the Bohemians have
lived In Plattsmouth and vicinity for
many years and the old settlers were
much In evidence. There was an
abundance of fine music and all the
old country dances were had to a
complete satisfaction. It was as
Pool Hall of James Gruber and the
Implement House of J. E.
Banning Destroyed
The town of Union which has been
suffering from a run of bad luck,
last Sunday night had another stroke
of misfortune when fire broke out
and destroyed the two story struc
ture occupied by James Gruber and
family as a residence in the
story and as a pool hall on the lower
floor. The flames also spread to a
two story frame building occupied by
the Modern Woodmen as a lodge
room on the second floor and by Jos
eph Banning as an implement house
on the first floor.
The flames were discovered Just
after eleven o'clock at night after
Mr. Gruber and family had retired.
They were aroused in time to permit
of their getting away but they were
unable to save anything, making
their escape In their night clothes.
The building was speedily reduced to
ashes being a total loss. It was
owned by Mr. Gruber and valued at
$3,500. There was f 2,500 Insurance
upon It.
The Modern Woodmen lodge owned
the two story structure next door
and it was soon in flames. Owing to
the discovery of the fire in time
citizens had been able to enter this
building and get out most of the
lodge parpliernalia so that they will
not bo heavy loaeri In that respect.
The lower floor was filled with a
fine stock of wagons, and farming
Implements and these were speedily
run out Into the street and the bulk
of them Baved. His loss on stock
will not be very heavy although It
will amount to norm-thing at the very
lowest. The building was entirely
destroyed. It was valued at $2,500
and Insured for $1,000.
Owing to the character of the night
which was still the flames burned out
without spreading further. The store
of R. II. Frans was threatened with
destruction but, being a brick build
ing, It did not catch readily and by
the use of buckets It was saved.
This makes the second series of
fires In that town In a few weeks and
like the former one, there Is no clue
as to Its origin. These two fires
have made a big gap in the business
section of the town. Doubtless, the
buildings will soon be replaced by
better structures.

the Late Adam Schantz
Yesterday Afternoon
From Tuesday's Dally.
The funeral of the late Adam
Schanz, Jr., was held yesterday after
noon from St. Paul's Evangelical
church and was very largely attended
by the many friends of this noble
young man. The eortegt left the
house In South Park at one o'clock
and proceeded to the church where
Rev. F. J. Longhorst delivered an
eloquent and touching discourse up
on the virtues and good works of the
deceased. Rev. Longhorst adopted as
his text "Rev. 14-13" and, in accord
ance with the text, he made reference
to the devout Christian life deceased
had lead. Rev. Longhorst's sermon
made a visible Impression upon the
congregation where the young man
was no well known and so universally
In addition to the sermon of Rev-
Longhorst, the choir sang a number
of tho favorite selections of the de
ceased. ,
The body was then takeii to Oak
Hill cemetery where It was laid to
rest in the beautiful city of the dead.
The pall bearers were young men
friends of deceased In his life time,
they being Messrs James Ptacek, An
ton H. Koubek, William Hassler, Jr.,
Emil Droege, Henry Hesse, and
Charles Wilklns.
The sympathy of the community is
extended to Mr. and Mrs. Schantz in
the loss of their beloved son who was
Champion Walker.
Speak It very low Louis Egen
berger Is not getting about his siore
today as spry as usual. The young
man took an unusual long walk yes
terday afternoon. He In company
with Peter Goos and Val Hurkel
started out to make a pleasant af
ternoon's walk to the water works
After they had gotten there the pleas
ant weather beguiled them Into go
lug on to Oreapolls and then his
satanic majesty must have gotten In
his work for they crossed the river
to LaPlatte. Having gone so far they
concluded to go on to Ft. Crook and
here Is where Louie's heart began to
fall him. A few miles on the othe
side of LaPlatte he cried with King
Dick, "A horse, a horse, my king
doni for a horse." But no horse was
much as a scene from Bohemia as to be had and a cold cruel world
these good folks met once more and smiled upon his footsore and weary
renewed tho memories of the fath
erland. Such parties are to be com
mended as they promote the fellow
ship feeling among the people. This
was one of the most edlightful over
here here.
Laid to Rest.
The funeral of the lute Herman
llerold was held from the home In
this city on hist Saturday afternoon
at two o'clock, Rev. Burgess, of the
Episcopal church officiating, and the
