Deserving of Praise.
Not too much praise can be accord
ed the young ladies of the Christian
church in their presentation of the
"Rainbow Klmona" comedy. They are
young women of exceptional ability
and their presentation was certainly
true to college life.
Lela Vallery called forth an ap
plause in the rendering of her Shake
spearian lines while Clara Copenhav
er as the colored maid kept the audi
ence In an uproar. These young la
dies possess the best voices in the
community and their singing was as
much enjoyed as their work in the
comedy. We wish to make special
mention of the Spring Chorus sug
gested to the girls by Mrs. Austin
Miss Isabella Young sang the solo.
Miss Young possesses a very soft and
musical voice and received many com
pliments upon her work. The chorus
was composed of Misses Bessie Bren
del, Ruth Thomason, Lela Vallery,
Grace Porter, Olga Minford, Marie
Davis and Loretta Carroll and their
voices blended beautifully! The
charming number, "The Zoo" made a
great hit. While the girls were pre
paring for the second act, .Miss Clara
Young gave a reading which she used
in the declamatory contest at Ween
ing Water February 15th. Miss Young
makes a pleasing and entertaining ap
pearance and it Is easy to see that
she has ability far beyond the aver
age. The girls received a neat little
sum to add to the treasury of this
club. They have been asked to re
peat the comedy which they may do
later. The entertainment was under
the direction of Pauline Qldham.
The hospitable heme of Mr. and
Mrs. J. C. Snavely, on last Friday
evening, was the scene of a pleasant
gathering of merry makers, who had
gathered there to bid adeau to Mr.
and Mrs. Wade Porter who will leave
In the near future for their new
home near Plafnvlew. The evening
was pleasantly spent in social conver
sation and playing varions games.
Music was also Indulged fa.
A sumptuous two course luncheon
was served by the hostess, to which
all did ample Justice.
Thowj present to enjoy the event
were Misses Margaret Conner of Illi
nois, Lela Vallery, Peprl Lewis of
Coldridge, Maude Rusterholtz, Loret
ta Carrol Tessle tSokes Clara and
Virginia Copenhaver Grace Porter,
Bessie Brendel; Messrs. Arthur Cop
enhaver, Will Seybolt, Giry Stokes,
Kelly Rhoden, Tom Tilson Harvev
Johnson; Messrs. and Mesdames Jake
Brendel Wade Porter, Carrol, D. C.
Rhoden, Mrs. Stokes.
Another Big Dance.
The Murray dancing club will rive
another one of their pleasant dances at
Jenkins' hall in Murray on Saturday
evening, March 5th . The music will be
furnished by the Jacob's orchestra of
Omaha. This dance will be given free
to all members of the club, but an ad
mission will be charged forall others.
To Rural Route Patrons.
Patrons of the rural mail route
should take notice that it Is against
the rules of the postoffice department
to leave loose coin In their bojfes.
That such should be enclosed in an
envelope or wrapped in paper. How
ever, the better plan would be to buy
the stamps and place them on their
letters themselvs. This would be bet
ter for both, the carrier and patron
and It is a great Inconvenience to
the carrier to leave loose coin In the
boxes. Don't forget this.

Moving in From Iowa.
C. B. Long from Macedonia, la.,
arrived in Plattsmouth yesterday over
the Burlington with his car of stock
and goods, and will hereafter be a
resident of Cass county. Mr. Long is
a nephew of our prosperous and good
natured friend, H. C. Long, from near
Murray, and if the young Mr. Long
is as good a man as the uncle, he
will prove one of the best men that
ever settled In Cass county. He is
evidently a good man too, as he has
hardly passed his thirtieth year,
starting in his boyhood days as a
salaried farm hand, and now able to
own such a Cass county farm as be
purchased from F. M. Young, Jr.,
some time ago, which speaks pretty
well of him. The following nearby
neighbors were In, Plattsmouth to
meet htm and assist In getting stock
and goods to the new home; D. A.
Young, Byron Reed . with two teams,
H. C. Long, Jos. Cook and F. M
Young Jr., all bringing a load of
goods here for the last named gentle
man who will load out for Murdock,
Minn., this week, himself and good
wife taking their departure on Tues
day of next week. Mr. Long was de
layed in Pacific Junction the greater
part of the day awaiting the Inspec
tion of his stock by the state Inspec
tor. ! Oliver C. Dinwiddle, the well
! known and popular citizen from near
Murray, came In this morning to look
iBtfer business matters and while here
called nt the Journal office and re
viewed his subscription to the paper.
Mr. Dinwiddle is one of the Journal's
good friends and is always welcome
nt this office. He reports the roads
quite rough nn.l muddy.
