PIONKKK DAY NOTES.
Preparations for Pioneer day,
September 2, continue apace and this
now promises to be one of the great
est days of the big meeting.
Chairman Windham has been mak
ing great preparations for the day
and is sparing no effort to secure
good attractions. He is today in re
ceipt of communications from Hon.
F. E. White and Hon. Orlando Tefft
signifying their intention of attend
ing the big meeting and accepting
the Invatatlons to deliver addresses
that day. Senator Tefft speaks dur
ing the afternoon, while Mr. White
addresses the banquet in the even
ing. Both are well known and pop
ular speakers and will be listened
to with great attention.
Mr. Windham also announces that
the speaking will be held in the big
tent north of the court house, the
Invitation of the Christian church
people being accepted. This is done
because of the long climb up the hill
to Garfield park and the nearness of
the tent to Main street.
Mr. Windham has also secured the
office of McMaken & Sons for the
place of exhibit relics of the pioneer
days. Everyone having anything re
lating to early Nebraska is Invited
to bring the same to this place, where
they will be placed in show. Col.
McMaken has arranged his magnifi
cent exhibit so that it can be shown
to advantage and the place will be a
vertltable museum of early Nebraska.
Several very highly Interesting
relics of early days have been secured
In addition to his fine exhibit. J.
C. Coleman has kindly donated for
use at the exhibition the old organ
brought to Nebraska when the Me
thodist church was established. Con
rad Schlater at that time played the
instrument and was the first organ
player In this vicinity. As a memen
to of the old days he will play this
same organ, a priceless relic, on
September 2 and the present Metho
dist choir will sing. This will be
highly interesting and a striking re
membrance of the past.
Another relic will be the bell from
Peter A. Sarpy's ferry boat which
operated at St. Mary's and later at
Oreapolls, fifty years ago. The boat
was sunk In the Platte river and all
which ever was recovered of It was
the bell which was donated to the
Catholics of this city by Sarpy. Later
It passed into the hands of John
Fitzgerald, who donated it to St.
John's church when the latter was
founded. Afterwards It was given to
Conrad Schlater when a larger bell
was obtained for the church and he
in turn passed it on to his sons for
use on their ranch. It was condi
tioned that it should return to him
when they sold the ranch and later It
came back here, and has been In use
on the Schlater-Fltzgerald property
north of this city. Mr. Schlater
kindly has this on exhibition as an
interesting relic of early days.
These are not near all but they
show the genreal trend of the exhi
bits, rioneer day will be a winner
A reception committee of ladles
for active service at Coates' hall on
Pioneers' day, September 2, has been
selected and the members notified
of their choice. This committee will
consist of Mesdames S. L. Thomas,
E. E. Hilton, II. J. Strelght, E. A.
Kirkpatrlck, William Taylor, L. C.
Todd and Miss Olive Guss. These
will be the active reception commit
tee and will hold forth at Coates'
hall on Thursday, September 2 .
An honorary reception committee

ance on Thursday, September 2:

This hot weather takes shirts and lots of them. A man
that is doing any hard work at all needs a fresh shirt
every day. This means that you have to have a good
supply on hand. We can help yon. For Carnival
Week we have just secured from a large jobber a lot
of soft shirts with collars attached, which were slightly
soiled by machine oil in manufacturing them. On some
of them you can scarcely notice it, and on all of them it
will come out in the first washing. These shirts arejfull
cut with long full sleeves, double sewed throughout, and
are mostly black and white patterns that will not fade.
At the present price of cotton these shirts could not be
made for less than 75c or $1. We bought thel
lot at a great reduction and are going to give
you the benefit by pricing them to you at
1 bis would scarcely buy the material alone. We have
all sizes now. Better come before they are broken.
From now until the close of Carnival Week we are going
to offer you all of our 50c and 75c balbriggan plaiu and
tancy underwear at the remarkahly low price of I
Understand this ts our regular line of under
wear and as long as the sizes last you can
buy them at 39c, CASH MONEY.
SUITS SUITS SUITS
Now, about those fine Quality Suits that we are selling
at half price. We have 11 of them left. They are good
sizes and elegant patterns. You certainly can't make
money any faster than by buying them. You can wear
any of them till snow flies, aud they'll be ready to do
service for you next spring. Look in our corner win
1 dow and you will see 3 of these suits just half price.
Handkerchiefs We have sold over 40 dozen of
men's plain white kerchiefs this summer at 5c each. The
greatest handkerchief bargain ever brought to Platts
mouth. We still have a few left at 5c a half a dime.
There are many other Carnival Bargains in here that
you will do well to avail yourself of. "Come early and
avoid the rush" applies in this case.

Return From South lakotu.
Messrs. Adam Kaffenborger and
Adam FornofT, who have been spend
ing several days on their farms near
Huron, S. I)., have returned to their
homes in this vicinity, returning Inst
evening. They report that the hail
storm several weeks ago In that sec
tion did an incalculable amount of
damage to the crops, and that the
loss Is very heavy. Mr. KalTen
berger's land was on the edge of the
storm, and ho did not suffer as se
verely as most others. His tenant
had a number of acres of wheat cut
before the storm came, and this Is
yielding well, the remainder being
largely a loss. His corn was also
badly cut by the hall and will not
yield anything like as heavy as it
should. Mr. KalTenborger, however,
thinks himself very fortunate to es
cape so happily. Mr. Fornolt wus
not so fortunate and the wheat on
his farm Is practically a total loss,
as nono of It had been cut when the
storm took place. Corn generally
throughout that country Is fine
and in good condition and, barring
an early frost, will make u good
Miss Anna Fisher Is expected to
arrive In the city this evening for a
visit with Mr. and Mrs. Anton W.
Vetcsnik until after the carnival.
The banquet to be given at Coates'
hall on September 2 at 6 o'clock p.
m. is not confined to pioneers and
old settlers, but it is open to every
ono who wishes to attend. One of
the prlnclplo objects of meeting
around the banquet board is to
blcMid together early territorial rem
iniscences with those of statehood.
There will be responses from persons
representing every period since the
organization of the territory up to
the present time. It Is the deHlre
thol ihoso who are now eDjoying the
blessings of the present may hear
and loam something about what
those who were laying tho founda

passed through with. A most elab

tables, and tho occnslon will bo en
