A member of the school board in
looking over the list of teachers,
could see but three of the Platts
mouth teachers enrolled and the fact
almost made him sick. When such a
golden opportunity is afforded for
them to get abreast of the time is
brought too their very door, and with
comparatlevly no expense in attend
Ing to see those who want to teach
the Plattsmouth young idea 'to shoot'
fosillze in this manner, is disheartlng
to the school board and the parents
of the children who call such excuse
"teacher." The board will be Justi
fied in discharging every teacher in
tho city schools who have not en
rolled for the Institute. The day of
the wooden moleboard ' plow, and
hand rako on the farm has departed,
so has tho excart and the lumbar
wagon as means of travel, and the
teacher who will not brighten up on
methods when opportunity affords,
should be relegated to the era of ox
cart and wooden plow. The museum
is the proper place for fosils, and not
the school room, and the Journal
will not uphold the teacher who will
not use her opportunities to get tho
best there Is for the Plattsmouth
emplary citizen, and leaveB to mourn
his death a wife and three children.
His mother has been at his bedside
for a month. Mr. Sullivan was about
forty-six years of age at the time of
his death. No arrangements have
been made for the funeral, but the
remains will arrive here tomorrow
and tho interment will take place at
the Horning cemetery. The Journal
hopes to be able to give a more con
cise obituary statement later.
Rev. Gade Delivered a Strong
Sermon at the Presbyterian
From Monday's Pally.
The subject of the discourse deliv
ered yesterday morning at the First
Presbyterian church was one of deep
interest to everyone being from
"Home Memories.' Owing to the
absence of Rev. Austin, pastor of the
Methodist church, a number of his
congregation were present to swell
Rev. L. W. Cade's congregation.
Rev. Gade read for his lesson that
touching story of Naomi and Ruth,
the incidents of which occurred
something over thirteen centuries be
fore the dawn of the christian era.
The discourse was listened to with
the closest attention, the speaker pre
facing his sermon with a beautiful
word picture of the home of Naomi
In the little Judean town of Bethle
ham, then depleted the blight of the
famine which caused the husband to
remove his family to the country of
Moab, where there was plenty. The
speaker stated that troubles never
came singly, but came like the bil
lows rolling over the unfortunate.
In addition to having to leave
the home of her childhood with her
family, when in the far off land her
husband died, then to add to her dis
tress Naomi's two sons died, leaving
her quite alone. But for the faith
fulness of her daughter Ruth, she
would have been without an earthly
friend. Naomi grew homesick and
longed for the scenes of her child
hood, then the speaker detailed the
homecoming, passing from the an
ient scene to the experience of nearly
all of us, picturing the home one
leaves In his early years with the
surrounding shade and fruit trees and
the flowers that mother used to cul
tivate , in the garden near the old
homestead. For the ipeaTierT
fashioned rose and the English violet
were far sweeter, and awakened fon
der memories than any cut flower or
potted plant. From the old fash
ioned homestead with its pleasant
memories, the speaker pleaded for
the old fashioned religion and urged
on his listeners the Importance of
prayer in the home, if a real spiri
tual growth is to be made. He de
proached the rush off to business of
the head of the family neglecting the
duties of the home life and rendering
the home susceptible to ruin and de
cay. Rev. Gade will preach a sermon
next Sunday morning on "the Judg
ment." Returns From eWst.
Hilt Wescott and wife and daugh
ter returned Saturday from a two
week's vacation trip to Colorado. Mr
and Mrs. Wescott visited with Harry
Turner and family seven miles north
east of Denver, where they lived in a
tent and enjoyed the mountain
Dreeze. Mr. wescott roamed over
the half section of the Turner ranch
and inhaled the ozone surrounding
the foot hills of the Rockies. Mr
Turner has half of his land In wheat
this year, and as the same Is under
the ditch will harvest a good crop
of wheat. While at Denver Mr. and
Mrs. Wescott took the Moffet trip
over the continental divide and
reached the highest point to which
any standard gunge railway goes.
This point was at tho top of the div
ide. Corona is the town, or rather
the lunch stand which marks the
peak. While on tho top of the ridge
the party shoveled snow for a time,
then boarding tho train and went
down tho mountain on tho western
slope to Broken Arrow. The trip is
one of grand and beautiful scenery
and Mr. and Mrs. Wescott enjoyed
their trip and outing hugely.
Study Human Nature.
About as good a way to study hu
man nature Is when you are driving
on the public road. If a man is will
ing to observe the law and tho court
esies of the road, he will duly give bis
share of it when meeting another and
(.hows he Is willing to do the gen
tlemanly thing about it. But when
you meet one who takes every ad
vantage of those he meets, and holds
tho road for his own selfish self, of
ten to the great discomfort of those
he meets, or will not allow them to

Miss Jessie Robertson who has

G. R. Olson of the Olson Photo
Machine Company, Visits
G. R. Olson returned home Satur
day evening from a month's trip In
the interest of the Photographic Ma
chine company, of which he Is pres
ident and patentee. Ho loft home a
month ago ' for Milwaukee, Wis.,
where he attended a convention of
tho photographers of the United
States, and had the pleasure of dem
onstrating his machine to the many
present, and who were perfectly de
lighted with Its working, and with
prospects of disposing of a consider
able number in the near future. From
the city of Milwaukee he visited
numerous eastern cities, Including
New York, Philadelphia, Boston and
other cities of tho east, and on the
return trip, Cleveland, Cincinnati and
Chicago. He met many of the great
est photographers of these cities, all
of whom spoke In the highest terms
of hia Invention. In introducing the
printing machine he disposed of quite
a number, with iavorable prospects
of disposing of more In the many
cities he visited during his month's
Mr. Olson Bays many of the lead
ing photographers of the east seem
greatly impressed with his Invention,
an dall speakof It as being one of
the very best and most up to date
photographic printing machines they
had ever seen. Mr. Olson did not
make his eastern trip for the purpose
of disposing of machines outright,
but simply to introduce them. Yet he
took several orders while gone, and
expects more to follow in a very short
time. The machine Is evidently what
every first class photographer needs,
and in the introduction of the Olson
Invention, it seems to have met a
long-felt want in making pictures
swift and in large quantltes. Mr. 01
son expects to endeavor to fill orders
now as fast as received, and will
probably In a very short time make
a trip to other sections of the coun
try In Its introduction.
Th manufacture and Invention of
these machines in .Plattsmouth is a
big thing for our city, and when they
are sent out in larger numbers It will
prove a big advertisement for the
town, as everyone will bear the Im
print of Plattsmouth, Neb., thereon.
Every citizen, who has the welfare
of the city at heart should be proud
that such an establishment Is located
in our midst, and should assist Mr.
Olson in his efforts to "Make Platts
mouth Famous" in the manufacture
of one of the greatest Inventions of
the present age.
Little Boy Injured.
Saturday evening the little three
year old son of William Gravett was
knocked down while standing with
his parents near Gering's drug store
and quite severely injured, by the
prank of reckless hoys. Tho boys
secured a cur and fastened a tin enn
to its tall and released it on Fifth
street. The frightened dog ran back
and forth across the street, dodging
first in one direction and then In an
other, finally darted toward the drug
store, running directly against the
little child. The child fell, striking
Its head against tho cement pave
ment, Injuring It seriously.
Mr. Gravett took the child Into tho
drug storo at once to cxamlno its
Injuries, and seeing tho bruises and
cut on its head Immediately carried
it to a doctor where tho llttlo one
had Its wounds dressed. At Inst ac
counts tho llttlo fellow was doing as
well as could bo expected under the
Will Empty Standplpe.
From Monday's Pally.
Mr. F. C. Weber, manager of the
Plattsmouth Water company inform
ed the Journal this' morning that he
will empty the standplpe and drain
the pipes tonight. The water In the
settling vats Is perfectly clear and
Mr. Weber's Idea Is to drain out the
pipes and Btandplpo so as to give
the water users purer water. The
water In the standplpe Is apt to be'
come stagnant during tho heated sca
son unless drained out occasionally.
At midnight tonight the hydrants
will all be opened and the water al
lowed to run out. Immediately af
ter the pipes are drained the pumps
wlll be set to work and the fresh wat
er plated in the resevolr and pipes,

Texas and also In Frontier county,
Neb., but expects very little returns
from crops on Texas and Nebraska
lands this year, the drouth having
been so severe In the locality as to
rutn the corn crop on these lands.
