Platte ILL 5 S IV TEACHERS IE FIR II 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 he given you in the matter of DEATH OF REV. JOHN E. He Passed Away at His Home In Wahoo Monday Morning, February 5, 1912. 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, wd beloved by nil who knew him. 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 ervous collapse for some months Rev. Swanson was about f0 ywars of age and leaves to mourn his loss a wife and 4 daughters, all residing nt Wahoo. His fun eral will occur at Wahoo Wed nesday afternoon. The bereaved family have the deepest sympathy f his congregation and numerous Iriends in this city. Mrs. John Albert visited daughter, Miss Emma, at wanuel hospital today. her Im- sin II BE HELD HE 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.

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. E EIENI lift! 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 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.

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 ago. 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. In District Court. From Tuesday's Dally. A case has been filed in the dis trict court entitled Frank E Schlater vs. The Oreapolis com pany, Abraham Kurkholder and fifty additional defendants. The oli.iee or lie suil is o (Itliel lie title lo a portion of the laud sold lo the government for a ril range. Order of sale was issued yes terday by Clerk of the Court James Robertson in Ihe case of James N. Haskell vs. Almira Davis, and Ihe sheriff will offer the property for sale in due time. The real estate in question is Ihe block formerly owned by the Wetenkamp estate. In tho case of the State vs. George Lytic a motion for a new trial was filed yesterday, setting out fifty-three reasons why the court should set the verdict aside and grant the defendant a new trial.

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 amount more paid by individuals, making 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 liver Ihe commencement ad dress.. Dr. Loveland has been very warmlv recommend by Slate Superintendent McHrian, and it may be Ihat the Doctor can hi; se cured for Ihe coming commence ment. Married by Rov. Sprelgel.
