The Superior Inducements Offered in the Way of Entertainment,
Justifies Miss Foster in Locating the Institute in Tim City, and
Commercial Club Will Guarantee Teachers Good Time.
Krtmi Tuesday's Daily.
Tho matter of deriding the
location of the County Teachers'
Institute by Miss Mary Foster was
reached by that lady last evening,
and was decided in favor of
Plattsniouth, and unquestionably
Miss Foster has made a wise
ehoice. Three towns Elmwood,
Weeping Water and Plattsniouth
each had presented invitations
through their Commercial clubs
t Miss Foster to hold the sum
mer session of the institute in
tfceir midst.
The IMattsinouth Commercial
hib offered the greatest induce
ments in the way of entertain
ment for the teachers during the
.session. The following letter was
received by Miss Foster from the
resident and secretary of the
flub, which will speak for itself:
Plattsniouth, Jan. 18, 1912.
Miss Mary E. Foster, County
Superintendent of Schools, City.
Dear Madam The Platts
flsouth Commercial club lakes this
pportunily to invite you to hold
Alio Cass County Teachers' In
stitute, for the year 1912, in the
ity of Plattsniouth. If the in
stitute is held here the Com
mcrical club has made arrange
ments with tho school board so
ttiat the use of the High school
and Central buildings, with jan
itor work, will be furnished free;
also, in the way of entertainment,
ii free band concert will be fur
iBhed for one evening; a musical
program will bo arranged for an
other evening, and a general re
uoption given to the teachers for
il third evening, whereby the
titizens of Plattsniouth may be
come, acquainted with the teach
ors of Cass county. Hoard and
Fodging will be furnished at not
lo exceed $t for the week. As a
rnber of our people own private
boats, it doubtless can be ar
ranged, as was done on a previous
eecasion, that many of the teach
ers may be given a boat ride on
Wic Missouri river; also a free
automobile ride will be given the
teachers, which will afford them
m opportunity of seeing our city
aid some of the picturesque por
Clons of the cottntry surrounding.
Svcry effort' will be made to
entertain the teachers properly
and all assistance possible, will

Prom Tuesday's Dally.
Gust Johnson received a mes
ntige last evening informing him
i the death of. Rev. John E.
Hwanson, which occurred at his
hnie at Wahoo Monday morn
Hev. J. E. Swanson has been
preaching at the Swedish Mission
hurch in this city twice a month
Imr the past six years and was a
man of raro mental attainments,

He was here and tilled his" pulpit
Christmas day and stated at
fcc. time that he would return in
two weeks, but was too ill to come
and never got back to Piatt s
nouth since. He had been in poor
health and on the verge of a

making the institute a grand
success. Trusting you may de
cide lo hold the institute in this
city, we are, very respectfully,
T. If. Pollock,-President.
A. L. Tidd, Secretary.
After considering the induce
ments offered by the other towns,
Miss Foster, in consideration of
the offer for entertainment' for
the teachers, with the cost, of
board at practically the same in
all, she decided to accept the in
vitation of the Plattsniouth Com
mercial club anil has fixed the
sessions lo begin in this city on
August 5, continuing live days.
Some of the best talent in the
eduueal ional field has been se
cured to instruct the teachers at
that time. Among the eminent
instructors will be A. 11. Water
house, superintendent of the Fre
mont schools, who will leach
school management and other
subjects; Miss K. Ilulli Pvrlle of
the McKinley building of Lincoln,
who will leach primary and inter
mediate work, and Dr. A. E. Win-
ship of Hoslon, inspirational
educational lecturer. In addition
to the above some local instruct
ors will also be secured, whose
names are not yet announced.
There are 1 35 teachers in the
county outside of the city schools
of Weeping Water and Platts
niouth. Two years ago the in
stitute was held in this city and
it is hoped that as a matter of
professional- improvement and
prid our corps of instructors
will give the county institute more
cordial support than was given it
two years ago. N'o teacher who
wishes to keep abreast of the
times can afford lo miss the ses
sions of the Cass County Teach
ers' Institute.
Superintendent Walerhouse is
recognized as one of the leading
educators or the stale, lie was
formerly a Cass county man, and
has acted as principal of both the
Lincoln and Omaha High schools.
Dr. Winship is recognized as one
of the greatest educators in
America, and no teacher who has
aii opportunity to hear him can
afford to stay away from the ses
sions. His lecture alone will more
than repay any teacher who
wishes to be professional in any
degree for lime and money ex
pended in attending the institute.
Make Correction.
In the issue of the Evening
Journal of the 2Jlh nil., in writ
ing up the district court pro
ceedings in the trial of the case
of Pankonin vs. Gorder, the writer
staled I hat in the injunction suit
brought by E. II. Gorder against.
II. E. Pankonin, enjoining the dc
f lanl in that case from engag
ing in the business. Hie good will
of which he bad sold lo Mr. Gor
der, and asking that a specific
performance of (lie lease contract
be decreed and that, this suit was
still pending. Mr. Gorder has
called the Journal's attention lo
the fact that the injunction suit
was decided in has favor in both
the district court and in I he su
preme court. The same article
also stated that "for some rea
son, probably because Mr. Pan
konin had again entered business,
Mr. Gorder declined to pay further
rent, and Hie litigation now under
way is to settle the question of
rent." Mr. Gorder takes excep
tions to this statement, ami says
I hat he never refused to pay any
thing. It is the aim of the Jour
nal to only print the news, with
out coloring it in I he least, and
it is remote from our intention to
take sides in any controversy, Ik
tween citizens or in their matters
litigated in the courts.
Dr. F. C. Siimns of Ashland was
in the city today and called on
Dr. Juckniess on business. Dr.
Juckniess is jiisl recovering from
a siege of typhoid fever and is
able to be up and about the house
and hopes to he out soon.
Little Child Burned.
From Tuesday's Pally.
Yesterday morning about 9
o'clock, while Mrs. Ncaly Ken
nedy was called from her honi"
for a few minutes, her little 2-year-old
daughter backed against
the stove ami caught her clothing
on lire. Mrs. Kennedy's little i-year-olil
son came to his sister's
rescue and threshed out the
(lames, but not until the little girl
bad been badly burned, her back
being painfully blistered. A
physician was summoned, who
dressed the little one's burns and
made her as comfortable as pos
sible. The burns were very pain
ful, but it is thought not fatal,
although the little girl suffers
very great pain.

Three Celebrate Their Birthdays
at the Elegant Home of
the Guthmann's.
One of the most delightful
social events of this winter was
Hie triple birthday party which
took place at, the pleasant home of
Mr. and Mrs. F. II. Gulhmann
yesterday afternoon. At this time
Mrs. (iiilhmann entertained a
ocnipany of friends in a most ex
cellent manner in honor of Mrs.
Joseph Droege, Mrs. W. E. Roseu
crans and Mrs. Gulhniann's little
nephew, Paul, their birthdays
happening to tall on the same
date. February 5. It. was Mrs,
Dmege's 50lh birthday anniver
sary, Mrs. Rosencrans' 4-lth and
Master Paul's llrst. The guests
were entertained with various
games and amusements calculat
ed to make the day one long to be
remembered by all.
Just previous to the close ol
this enjoyable entertaiunient, !h -guests
were invited lo the dining
room, where an elegant birthday
luncheon awaited them. The
table was pretty with its floral
decora! iojis. After the luncheon
the guests tarried a few moments
and indulged in social conversa
tion and other diversions and then
dispered, wishing the honored
guests many as happy birhtdays,
and extending to Mrs. C-uthmann
their warmest thanks for her kind
hospitality and the splendid aft
ernoon afforded them. Mrs.
Droege was horn in Germany in
18t2. Mrs. Rosencrans in Penn
syleania in 1808, and Master Paul

ing December 31, taking the ban
ner away from Lincoln Council.
The number of new members ac
quired by this council last quar

Topeka, informing him of the
good fortune of the local council
in securing the trophy. The ban

Philander Williams Dead.
At 9 o'clock last evening
Uncle Philander answered the
call of death, which occurred at
his home in this city. The im
mediate cause of demise was
chronic Hright's disease, the rav
ages of which malady could not
be met owing to advanced years
and illness from oilier causes
preceding. This news will be re
ceived with much sorrow by the
many friends of Uncle Philander
scattered throughout the state. In
his death there is removed one
of the oldest landmarks of Cass
county. Elmwood Leader-Echo.

It Will Prove a Very Pretty Race
and in All Probability a
Clean One.
Two men who served in the
last senate will confront each
oilier as opponents this year, as
the result of Cass and Otoe coun
ties being thrown together into
one district. State Senator W. H.
Manning, democrat, of Union, who
represented Cass county in 1911,
filed with the secretary of slate
Friday morning as a senatorial
candidate in that district, the
Second. Slate Senator H. II. Bart
ling, republican, of Nebraska City,
who was Otoe county's senator in
tin last session, made his tiling
in the joint district several days
Neither man has any opposi
tion in his own parly so far, and
it is probable that both will be
nominated. If this happens, il
will pit them against one an
other for the first time. Danning
J-Jias served two terms, while Dart-
ling was a first termer last year.
There has always been more or
less rivalry between Cass and Otoe
counties, and their being placed
in the same senatorial district
will doubtless make the first elec
tion an interesting affair. Lin
coln Star.
In regard to the rivalry ques
tion, the Star is sadly mistaken,
as there is not the least rivalry.
The I wo counties, as far as the
democrats are concerned, dwell
together in harmony and have
never had any trouble whatever in
the selection of candidates.
What It Costs.
Do you realize what il means lo
plant a dead ear of corn? The
overage ear contains from SiMi to
1,000 kernels. Every kernel
i"epns a stalk and ever;- Ma.k an
ear. A good ear planted mean
("om 8fi0 to 1,000 ears, or ahout
10 bushels of corn. Suppose one
dead ear is planted. Nothing is
returned and a loss of $5 results.
Twelve good ears of averag'! corn
w ill plant one acre. A loss of one
ear means a loss of one-twelfth
of the corn crop. It can easily lie
seen what it means to plant corn
that will not germinate strongly.
Tests in Nebraska prove that most
of the corn will not show ger
mination tests of 50 per cent.
That means unless tested corn is
planted the yield will be cut, down
in half. Last year the corn yield
amounted to $85,000,000. A loss
of one-fourth would practically
bankrupt all interests dependent.
A loss of one-half will mean a
calamity. Don't fail to test your
seed corn. Do it now before it is
loo Lit o.

Two of Plattsmouth'8 Young Peo
ple Take Snap Judgment on
Their Friends.
From Tuesday's Dally.
Two of Plaltsnioulh's most
popular young people stole a
march on theeir friends today, and
in the early hours, before many
were abroad, betook themselves to
St, Johns' Catholic church, where
Father Shine said the nuptial
mass at G o'clock which united for
life the lives and fortunes of Aug
ust Cloidt and Miss Pearl Moore.
The friends of the happy young
couple were all taken by surprise,
as only Emil Droege and Miss Me
Elroy, who witnessed the cere
mony, were aware that the mar
riage was to occur at this time,
Miss Moore left home last evening
with the avowed intention of
spending the night with her
friend, Miss McElroy. Mr. Clod it
gave a similar reason for absent
ing nimseii irom Home, saying
that he would visit his friend,
Emil Droege.
At 5:30 this morning the two
couples left the McElroy resi
dence in a cab and were driven
directly to St. John's church,
where Father Shine was expect
ing them. The 'ceremony over,
the groom and bride were driven
to the Cloidt home on High School
Hill. The happy pair have a large
circle of young friends in this
city who will be delighted to hear
of these nuptials. They will re
side in this city. The Journal

Never Lcfore in the History of
Plattsmouth Were Our Schools
More Prosperous.
From Wednesday's Dally.
The school board held its reg
ular monthly meeting Monday
night of I his week, and in addi
tion to the regular routine of
business, allowance of bills and
the like, the report of Superin
tendent Abbott was read and
placed on file. Mr. Abbott's report
shows a very satisfactory growth
of the schools under his man
agement. The reports in sub
stance is as follows: Tuiliou
collected for January, 1912, was
19.25, which, added to the
amount already collected this
year ($139.2(5) makes a total for
the live months of $188.51. From
I lie same sources last, year, cover
ing the same period of time, the
((died ions only aggregated
f?(9.50. Already for the half year
closed the tuitions have amount
ed to $119 more than Ihe cor
responding lime last year. At the
same rale the tuition fees will
amount to about. $350 for Ihe
w hole year, or more I ban twice as
much as last year.
The same favorable comparison
may be made of the tut ion funds
paid by outside districts. Last
year there were 23 free tuition
pupils, and tho amount collect
ed to the middle of Ihe year from
their districts was $300. We
have just nut in our claims
against districts for 32 pupils,
amounting to $429. Or we shall
receive about $250 more for the
year tor tuitions paid
by dis-
I rids and about Ihe same
more paid by individuals,
lis year
about $500 more for tl
than for 1910-1911.
Mr. Abbott further sas: "In
my judgment, it will lit; an easy
matter to show a still greater in
crease along the same lines next
year. . The- sunerinlendcnl and
secretary of the board did all they
could last summer to invite
pupils to come here, rather than
go elsewhere for their school
work. We now have a new ter
ritory on the north to draw from;
our High school is justly gaining
prestige, and we ought lo neglect
no opportunity lo build up this
oulside al tendance."
Mr. Abbott has bad definite,
word that it will he improssible
to secure Mr. Wickershani lo de
