Latd Friday evening the Loyal Son
and Daughters or the Christian
church gnvo their class banquet at
Iho home of Key. and Mrs. Ratellffe.
This waa the final service In the class
-contest, which had prevailed during
Iho past three months. An excellent
program had been prepared and those
who participated In It proved them
selves worthy of the task assigned.
The rendition of each number on the
program was all that co':ld be de
Aired. The program was as follows:
Instrumental solo. . . .Kverette Ward
Vocal solo Margarctte Thomas
Instrumental solo Myra Stenner
Clara Mao Morgan and Wllma

Heading Mrs. William ltuird
Vocal solo II. A. McElwnln
Instrumental solo. . . Molllo Goodwin
At the conclusion of the program
Rev, and Mrs. UatclllTe were called
to the parlor and compelled to stand
up while hoiiio packages were handed
to them. At this time Mr, Jesse
Perry, on behalf of tlio class, pre
vented to Mrs. liatclllTo a very line
liand-palntcd china salt and pepper
Kt, and to Mr. Katcllffe n beautiful
olld gold watch chain as a slight
token of respect In which they wero
held by the class.
Then followed a sumptions supper.
The service consisted of two courses.
First, sandwiches, coffco and pickles;
then ice cream and cake, to which all

There wero about eighty-five
present and all were agreed that It
was by far the most pleasant event
In the history of the class. It Is the
one hopeof the class that It may be
able to retain in lis circle Brother
and Sister RatclltTe for many years
Judgo Archer had a busy day yes
torday, and tils court was in session
most of tho day for the purpose of
settling differences between litigants
The case of l'axton & Gahlager vs.
Merchant Suites of Union was settled
without going to trial by the payment
into court by defendant's attorney,
C, L. Graves, of tho sum of $50 and
tho costs, which was the amount sued
The ease of Butler, next friend for
Hillings, a minor, vs. If. It. Gerlng, In
which Judgment was entered for
plaintiff for $12, was paid into court
and no appeal taken.
A forcible entry and detainer case
from Greenwood, In which one
Dyers, was plaintiff, and Mr. Hough
was defendant, was also discontinued,
as further suit had been rendered un
necessary by the defendant having
moved out of tho property. The
plaintiff hail his witnesses In court,
but did not have them sworn. De
fendant in this case confessed Judg
ment for the costs.
A Large Audience at the Par
mele to Witness reduct'en.
From Weilripsday's Pally.
"The Lion and the Mou,e" has
come and gone, and with Its de
parture leaves behind it a well satis
lied public, and especially those who
witnessed the play. While the opera
house was not ciowdcd there was a
splendid attendance. There was not
a poor actor among the company.
Some, of umiirso, wero better than
others. The leading lady, Miss Bessie
Lee, as "Shirley Roossniore," was
grand In her part and held her audit
ors spellbound from start to finish.
She Is a most pleasing and captivat
ing lady and will pass on any stage
in tho land as an accomplished
actress. "John Burket Ryder, the
character taken by Mr. Morris Burr,
was perfection, and his contemptible
treatment of Judge Rossmore was
such as to no t be very acceptable to
the auditors. But It was In the play
and bad to t;. "Ex-Judge Scott,"
tho part taken by Mr. F. II. Living
ston, Is another part that wa3 per
formed to the letter. Mr. Livingston
Is well known in this city, having
been here on several similar oc
casions. And, by the way, Mr. Liv
ingston organized this company
several months miico in Chicago and
Is general manager. Mr. and Mrs.
Livingston are both with "The Lion
and the Mouse," and both, it will be
noted, have prominent parts. Mrs.
Livingston Is on the cast as Miss
Coletta Power, and she palyed the
part of "Mrs. John Ryder," and, as
was expei ted - by her friends in
Plattsmouth, was simply immense.
We would like to give everyone a
special notice, which they justly de
serve, but It will be Impossible for us
to do so. "The Lion and the Mouse"
Is a deep and very instructive produc
tion, and our people should con
gratulate themselves and feel very
thankful to Manager Dunbar for his
efforts In securing such high-grade
plays for their especial edification.
Such high-class companies are not ex
pected to visit such cities as Platts
mouth. It does not pay them to do
so, and if "The Lion and the Mouse"
made any more than bare expenses
we miss our guess.

FERING FROMBRGKEri LIMB
Mrs. Homer MKay received a card
yesterday from her daughter, Mrs. W.
II. l'ickard, who is spending a few
days visiting relatives at Haveloek,

brother, Joe Messersmith, who re
sides at that point, had suffered the
misfortune of getting one of his
limbs broken by a fall from a buggy
Saturday afternoon. There were no
other partclulars as to how the ac
cident occurred other than that the
facture was a very bad one. Mr.
Messersmith Is a former resident of
this city and has many friends here
who wil lregret to learn of his mis
fortune, but trustt hat he will enjoy
a rapid recovery and be able to be out
among his friends very soon.

GOOD TIME FOR SO
LONG AND HEAVY TRAIN
Long freight trains, with longer
ones each day, Is the rule on the
Omaha division of tho Burlington. A
few days ago a train with ninety-nine
loaded cars, carrying a tonnage of
.1,274, was brought here with one en
gine. Lnst evening a freight train
arrived from the east behind one en
gine consisting of 107 cars and carry
ing 3,S."0 tons. The low grade that
has been made more uniform In re
ciHit years makes it possible to pull
these long trains between I'latts
mouth and Lincoln. The Burlington
recently has added to its freight pull
ing machinery a new class of engines,
said to be more powerful than those
generally In use, and these engines
have been used on these long trains.
The train left Baclfle Junction at
1:45 p. ni., and reached Eighth stree t
In this city at 5:20 p. m., a distance
of sixty miles Lincoln Journal.
NO TRACE OF THE
ESCAPED CONVICTS YET
The four convicts who escaped
from the penitentiary early Sunday
morning have not been apprehended.
Warden Smith stated late last night
that nothing had ben heard of them.
The men escaped Sunday morning by
sawing the liars of a window in the
kitchen where they were taken to do
some work. It is thought that they
had outside -help In making their
escape. Several clues that have come
in as to their whereabouts have
proven worthless. All four of the
convicts were trusties. They were
sent Into the kitchen each morning
to assist the cook in preparing break

the men into the kitchen each morn
