A One O'clock Luncheon.
From Friday's Dally.
Mrs. Paul Gerlng entertained about
thirty of her lady friends at her splen
did residence on north Sixth street
yesterday afternoon at a one o'clock
luncheon. The charming parlors of
the Gering mansion had been hand
somely decorated with masses of peo
nies, which had been very attractively
and prettily arranged. Whenever in
vited to the Goring home, the guests
always expect a delightful time and
their expectations were fully realized
in the entertainment of yesterday, in
fact, we have it confidentially, that
the guests had such a good time that
they did not depart for their homes
ntil a very late hour. Social con
versation and various other diver
sions were thoroughly enjoyed. The
principal feature was an elaborate six
course luncheon which was served
at the appointed hour. The table
was beautiful with Its decorations of
wild roses. The hostess was assist
ed In serving and entertaining by her
aughters, Misses Mia and Barbara.
One particular feature which the
guests especially enjoyed were the
musical numbers furnished by the
vlctrola, which was presented to Mrs.
Gering by her nephews during their
recent visit to this city. This was
most thoroughly appreciated along
with the many other delightful things
provided oy the thoughful hostess for
the entertainment of her guests.

Holds Teachers' Convention.
County Superintendent Foster to
day has been holding teachers exami
nation at her office and has had quite
a number of applicants present. Those
attending from out the city Include
Miss Lola Lamphear of Elmwood:
Misses Ella Anderson, Edith Ander
son and Mary Arvidson of Louisville:
Misses Minnie Nelson of Gretna and
Miss Ethel McCreight of South Rend.
Resides these there were a large num
ber of applicants for places from in
the city and the office presented a
handsome spectacle throughout the
William ok and Miss Emma
Kaufman were visitors yesterday af
ternoon at Havelock, where they
spent the night with relatives, re
turning to this city this morning on
Thinks Wyoming Great.
Mrs. Roy Tarrant departed this
morning for her home at Gillette,
Wyo., after spending a week in this
city making a visit with her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Emil Walters. Mrs.
Tarrant is an enthusiast over Wyom
ing and considers that that state is
the greatest commonwealth in the
union. She describes the country and
the climate as about as fine as could
be conceived. The principal draw
back which she found to this section
was the warm nights, something
which that part of the country is not
troubled v.ita. She expects to re
move in a short time to Sheridan,
Wyo., which she describes as one of
the finest cities in the middle west.
She greatly enjoyed her visit with her
folks but bad to admit that she pre
ferred Wyoming as a place of resi
dence and the boundless hospitality
of the western people to those farther
east. She leaves Omaha this evening
at 4:10 p. m., and will arrive at her
home on Sunday afternoon.
Flies Unusual Case.
An unusual case has been filed in
district court by attorneys Charles L.
Graves of Union and Messrs. Ramsey
& Ramsey of this city. It is a case
asking for the construction of the
terms of a will. The title of the case
is Clara A. Davis, executrix vs. Nannie
A. Sherman and Pearl O. Wright, de
fendants. The petition in brief 6ets
out that Mary Ella Davis died at Un
ion, leaving a will, one section of
which bequeathed certain real estate
to her son Clairborne Aubrey Davis,
with no residuary clause. The heir
has since died and the will makes no
disposition of his share. The plain
tiff and the defendants are the heirs
to the estate and they want the share
of the deceased heir determined and
its descent and distribution decreed
by the district court. The case is out
of the ordinary.
Pops the Question.
During a picnic frolic on Fremont
Island last summer a pretty Fremont
girl wrote her name and address on
a piece of paper, put it in a pop
bottle and tossed it in the Platte
river. A few weeks later it was
found by Ro.y Meier of Louisville.
Last Friday evening I nOmaha, as
a sequel to this little trend of events,
Miss Martha Launer of Fremont, and
Roy Meier of this city were mar
ried. How young Meier sent a post card
to the address in the bottle and got
a reply to it, and how later there was
a meeting of the two and finally when
parental consent was not forthcom
ing on the girl's side, there was an !
elopement that was foiled, all go tq
make up the romantic little story In
connection with the match. Parental
consent, however, was finally obtain

Installs Xew Piano.
William Earclay this afternoon
completed the Installation of the new
combination automatic and natural
piano In his restaurant and hereafter
the strains of music will add to the
delights of a feast at this place. The
new piano Is a beauty and a highly
ornamental addition to the furniture
of the place. It cost $750 and Is well
worth the amount Invested. Mr. Bar
clay spares no efforts to keep his
place up in the front rank of eating
places In the state and has Invested
quite a large sum at different times
In Improvements calculated to In
terest and please his patrons.
Cards have been received In the
city announcing the approaching
wedding of Miss Myrtle Oka Deles
Dernier, daughter of Wm. DelesDer-
nler and wife, of Elmwood, to Mr.
William Olen Langhorst, son of Mr.
and Mrs. L. F. Langhorst, of Elm
wood. The wedding is to take place
in that city on Wednesday, June 29,
1910, at 8:30 p. m. The young
folks are quite well known In this
city, In fact, throughout Cass county,
and have a vast number of friends
who will extend their best wishes to
them upon their departure for a voy
age on matrimonial seas.
Secure New Furniture.
A new filing case to contain the old
files of cases which have been sent
to the supreme court, decided and the
files returned, has been duly installed
in the vault In the office of Clerk of
the Court Robertson making a hand
some and valuable addition to the of
fice furniture. It will act very large
ly as a preserver of the Instruments
which will be filed within it keeping
them free of dust and dirt and in
much better shape than they have
heretofore been kept. This also makes
the equipment of the vault very com
prehensive and systematic and In gen
eral serves an excellent purpose.
I desire through th, Journal to

kindnesses to me while I suffered
