too late to be present at the last sad

Preliminary Debate Last Even
ing at High School
The debate last evening at the high
school auditorium to select the team
to represent the Plattsmouth schools
In the state debating league, drew
out quite a crowd of auditors al
though not nearly so many as the
merits of the arguments deserved.
There were a large number of en-
tries for places on the team and the
Judges found It difficult to chose
among several or the contestants, the
high general scale of the argument
proving a serious stumbling block .
The team as finally chosen Includ
es Misses Marie Douglass, Lucile Gass
and Marie Robertson and Mr. John
Falter. The work of all these is
described by several of the Judges
as excellent and worthy to rank with
any with whom they have come in
contact. TLe question which was de
bated was "Resolved, That labor un
ions are, on the whole, beneficial,"
and every one of the debaters advan
ced ideas of much excelence to sus
tain the contention.
The Judges were Prof. Anderson
of the Omaha high school, Prof. J.
C. Grayson of the commercial depart
ment of. the Council Bluffs schools
and Prof G. W. Cheney of the Un
ion schools. These, gentlemen took
everything Into consideration In rend
ering their decision and made their
choice upon the general qualifications
of the debaters.
In addition to the team chosen the
following were participants in the
debate and each of them acquitted
themselves with honor, Misses Rachel
Livingston, May Barker, Janette Cle
ment, Helen Clark and Mabel Adams
and Mr. Pollock Parmele. Their argu
ments were all excellent and were

An lnlnerant traveller arrived In
town this morning and proceeded to
create a sensation around the court
house where he made his way as
soon as he hit the city. He proceeded
to the corridor on the main floor and
rustened to fall heavily upon the
tile in a terrible fit of pain throw
ing a scare into the young lady em
ployes of the building which some
of them will not get over for some
time to come. His howls and yells
scon brought nearly all the male em
ployes of the building about him and
they endeavored to find out what
ailed him. ' This they succeeded in
doing by shouting their questions at
him in a stentorian voice for he was
nearly as deaf as the proverbial ad
der. He finally made them under-
