The Patterson Building Bought
by Modern Woodmen and the
City of Plattamouth.
In the report of the council
proceedings, published in Tues
day's issue of the Evening Jour
nal, an error occurs. The state
ment published was that the city
contemplated purchasing the east
half of the Patterson block on the
corner of Sixth and Pearl streets
for a city hall and other purposes,
and the M. W. A. the west half,
It should have been vice versa.
The Woodmen have bought the
corner frame and the city the
brick livery barn, which will be
renovated for city purposes, while
The corner frame will be greatly
improved by raising it up and
converting the entire upper part
into a lodge room. The improve
ment of both these buildings will
be a great help to the appearance
of the corner. The improve
ments contemplated by both the
city and Woodmen simply demon
strales that people have more
confidence in the future of Platts-
mouth than at any time for years

Passenger Going West, Freight
Coming East, Come Within
Few Feet of Colliding.
The passengers on No. 23 yes-
lerdav had a narrow escape from
a severe shaking up, and came
so near a smash-up as to make
the hair stand on the head of one
passenger, who poked his head
out of the window to see why the
air was turned on so suddenly.
It appears that No. 23 had
orders to pass the east bound
freight at Bellevue, but this order
was arterwara annunea, ana ine
train was going at its usual pace
toward Omaha on the curve be
tween Gibson and Bellevue when
a heavily laden east bound
freight, the crew of which had
become balled up on its orders,
came thundering to meet No. 23
on the same track.
As soon as the engineers spied
the other's train the air was
thrown on and the best efforts of
the crews of the two trains were
exerted in stopping the trains.
The engines were within a few
feet of each other when they came
to a halt. No one was injured, but

The young ladies of the M. E.

and snare drums, harps and pans,
and when the shades of night had

neighborhood were sleeping,
broke forth in the most distress

those parts since the Lewis and
Clark expedition. The dogs in the
vicinity added their musical yelps
to the horn and drum and songs
of the maidens until sleep in the

RIVER PARTY YESTEROAT
Nine Couple Enjoy Trip on th
River and Winds Up With
A very pleasant steak party was
given last evening on the bank of
the Old Muddy near the Burling
ton bridge. The function was
I given by Miss Clec Applegate,
Miss Hazel Dovey and Miss Bell,
who were assisted in the broiling
by Mr. Bruce Livingston of Oma
ha and other gentlemen.
There were nine couple in all,
and a launch was chartered and
an excursion to Nebraska City and
intermediate points was made, the
trip being a gloriously cool one
on the water after a hot day on
the land. On the return to shore
the steak, which had been fur
nished by the gentlemen of the
party, was by them soon broiled,
and with the other little delicacies
furnished by the ladies, the party
soon found themselves in camp
altitude, surrounding a piping hot
picnic supper. A few vocal
selections were rendered and
some classical readings, inter
spersed with foot-racing and high
vaulting, served to break the
monotony of the camp life. After
the repast was cared for and there
was nothing in sight with which
further the appease Mr. Bruce
Livingston's appetite, from Oma
ha, the joyful company broke
camp, and began their cheerful
march toward the city. At the
juncture of Toad Hollow with the
Missouri river the company
paused for some time to listen to
the frogs sing, and on the con
clusion of the concert the party-
marched in double-quick time to
the viaduct, arriving just in time
to join with the senior, class
parade. As soon as their cautious
.chaperon observed the sheriff
loitering in the shadows of the
buildings she advised a hike up
Sixth street, and succeeded In gel-
ting every member of the party
home without one of them being
"pinched." Last night was a busy
time for the sheriff.
