What would be the easiest method
of paying a man you owed this
amount? Could you gather up a
ten-dollar bill, a five, four ones, a
half, a quarter, two dimes and four
coppers? There Is a much better
way for the man with a cheeking
account. Ho writes J 19.99 on a
blank check, signs his name and
hands It to the other party. Carry
a check book with you always.

Arthur Lee Munger and Miss Frida Matilda Hauswirlh Wedded
By New Religious Order The Temple.
Glen Rawls. the gial clerk at
C. E. Wescott's Sons clothing em
porium, received this week a mark
ed copy of the Palo Altan, a news
paper published at Palo Alto, Cal.,
containing an account of the mar
riage of Arthur Lee Munger, a form
er Plattsmouth boy, to Miss Frida
Matilda Hauswtrth, the bride and
groom both being residents of Palo
Alto. The ceremony was celebrated
with Temple rites. The Temple Is
an organization along accult and
humanitarian lines, dealing with
mystical, as well as practical side of
religion, ethics and social science.
The local branch at Polo Alto is call
ed the Temple Square. On Sunday,
August 7th, the wedding of Mr. Mun
ger and Miss Hauswirth occurred,
and was a complete surprise to ev
eryone but the, wedding party and
the groom's mother. At the conclu
sion of the morning service, there
stepped forward Arthur Lee Munger

be married, according to the ritual
and rites of the Temple. The cere-
mony was performed by the official
heads, Dr. W. H. Dower and Mrs. F.
L. A. La Due, the two chief officials
of the Temple, garbed in snow white
robes. The ritual is most impres
sive and is quite unlike that of any
other church, in that it minimizes

R. M. Schlaes, the moving picture

present quite a different and pleas

are two Inches farther apart than in
any theater In Omaha, thus Mr.
Schlae3 looks out for the comfort
of his patrons. There Is quite a dif
ference In sitting In a comfortable
opera seat not cramped for room,
and not have the rim of the lid of
the lady in front strike you in the
face. The seats are arranged with
hat racks and foot rests convenien
ces that will be appreciated by the
patrons of the house. The raised
stage will be fitted up in the most
modern fashion with foot lights and
, Peaches Weie Fine.
The peaches shipped to us by Mr.
John Murray from Alva, Okla., were
received yesterday and we immedi
ately opened the basket and sampled
them. They are the finest peaches
we ever saw, there not being a sin
gle blemish on them, and still they
laid in the Pacific Express office
here for two or three days before
we knew they had arrived. They had
the rarest of flavor and indeed they
were the finest we have ever tasted.
We certainly appreciated your kind
rememberance Mr. Murray, and we
certainly did ample justice to them.

the religious and accentuates the
philosophic and social side of mar
riage. The ancient heirlooms smack
ing of the inferiority and submis
sion on the part of the bride are
omitted. The Temple has the same
sanction to solemnize marriages as
that of other church under the law
The bride and groom were la
street attire and unattended. Each
placed a ring on the fourth finger of
the other in token of marriage, re
peating the nuptial vows in unison,
after which the officials speaking In
unison pronounced them man and
wife. The consecration hymn was
sung by the audience with deep
solemnity and feeling. The high
contracting parties stood upon a silk
Persian rug which has performed
the same part In weddings of the
Munger family for many years. The
groom's father had been called east
on business and so was not present.
This is the second Temple marriage,
the first being performed on last
Thanksgiving. Both Mr. and Mrs.
Munger are prominent graduates of
the Stanford university. Mr. Mun
ger Is the son of former deputy coun- .
ty treasurer, A. L. Munger of this
county, and Is well known to the
Plattsmouth young people where
the family resided for some time.

Corn Crop About Prague Good.
Mr. G. M. Fleming, a farmer re
siding near Prague, In Saunders
county, Neb., stopped a few hours
In Plattsmouth this morning while
en route to Murray to visit relatives.
Mr. Fleming thinks the corn on hia
farm will make twothirds of a crop
this season. The prospect for a crop
now is more favorable than last year.
Small grain was a splendid crop,
while hay will be very short. Farm
ers who had alfalfa are in luck, as
they have cut two or more crops ot
the hay and will get one or two more.
Use "Forest Rose" Flour if you
want the best results in making good
bread. Try a sack and you will buy no
other. For sale by all leading dealers.
W. A. Schutz left for Plalnview
this afternoon wHere he will visit
