F.R'S FARM SPECIAL will strongly appeal. Up to
the time we put out this great labor saving tool he had
to be content with the old, slow-cutting grindstone or
unsatisfactory emerv grinder, but now he can have the
service of the most perfect farm tool sharpening device
ever invented. There is not a tool used about the farm
that is superior to our FARM SPECIAL GRINDER as
a labor saver. It sharpens everything in one-twentieth
the time it would take on the grindstone. The grind
stone cuts so slow that you would prefer to work with a
dull tool rather than endure the backache and HARD
WORK of keeping tools sharp on it.
IT IS EASY to sharpen tool on the Farm Special.
Your ten-year-old boy will tell you it is fun to sharpen
everything on this FARM SPECIAL GRINDER.

Settlers' reunion which Is to be held

L'nlon. These dates tome on a Fri
day and Saturday and there should
be monster crowds present on both
days. This Is the twenty-second an
nual gatnering of the old settlers'
and the excellent people of Union
will spare no pains to make it the
biggest and best gathering of the kind
ever held. As Is usual at this gather
ing there will be plenty of oratory
and noted speakers representing all
shades of political belief and with
all kinds of views on different sub
jects will be heard and if you have
an opinion you can visit this gather
ing and fortify It from your side or
have it shaken from stem to gudgeon
by the opposition. There will also
be a program of sport3 worth taking
In including pome good base ball
games and races of various kinds are
advertised. The Union band will play
at intervals and furnish a treat for
music lovers. The gathering will be
held as usual In the fine grove west
of the town and on the banks of the
Weeping Water, Insuring a cool,
shady retreat. The program has not
yet been completed but it likely will
be before a great while when a more
definite announcement can be made
as to its makeup. However, that
shouldn't deter you from putting
down this date and visiting Union.
The offlVers of the association giv
ing the reunion are W. R. Cross,
president; John B. Roddy, 1st vice
president; Alva Stltes, 2nd vice presi

Returns From Detroit.
Dr. Frank L. Cummins who was
the delegate from Plattsmouth Lodge
No. 739, B. P. O. E., to the grand
lodge at Detroit, Mich., returned this
morning. He had a royal time and
found the city of Detroit to have tak
en the greatest steps to greet the
guests. The grand lodge was the
largest ever assembled in the history
of the order and the session was one
of the most Important. There were
a number of Important matters taken
up by the lodge and disposed of and
the sessions on the whole were most
Interesting. The excitement attend
ant upon the election of officers for
the organization was not much this
year as there were no contests of
moment. August (Garry) Hermann
of Cincinnati, Ohio, was unanimously
elected grand exalted ruler, he hav
ing been defeated one year ago at
Los Anegeles, Cal., by J. U. Sammls
of LeMars, la., for that honor after
one of the hardest and most bitter
struggles in the history of the order.
Harmony, however, prevailed at the
Detroit session. The program of en

of Detroit was a very elaborate one

ranged for the last day of the gath

tractions of the entire week. Dr.

Condition of Mrs. Monroe.
The condition of Mrs. O. P. Monroe
who was injured several days since
is reported as being slightly better,
although she Is still In a serious state.
She is unable to retain much nourish

from pains In the back of her head

that she will eventually recover but

Some heavy construction Is yet to

Much of the dirt grading is well along
toward completion, and It Is expected
that considerable track may be laid
this winter. The work would have
been farther along If It had not been

The base ball game last Sunday
between the Columblas of Omaha and

poorly played and uninteresting con

outclassed and the locals never had
to exert themselves to win. In fact,
they mixed themselves all up and
played about any old place on the
diamond. McCauley started the game
by pitching for Plattsmouth but he
never had to lengthen himself out
to win and In the sixth Fitzgerald
took his place and tossed them over,
although he makes no pretensions to
being a pitcher. Even at that he was
too many for the visitors and they
could do little with him. The field
