SENTS BEAUTIFUL SOUTHERN STORY
YOUNG U MEETS
"Down Where the Cotton Blossom Grow" Pleases Large Audience
at the Parmele Theater as the Company are Splendid Actors
and Always Delightful in Their Acting.
The Hreckenridge Slock com
pany was greeted by a very re
spectable audience at the Parmele
last night to witness that beauti
ful play of the old south, "Down
Where the Cotton Mossoms
Grow." And to say the large
audience was well pleased but half
expresses it. Harry Smith, as
Richard Uoone Slanbury, sou of
Old Kentucky, was a character
well presented by Mr. Smith, who
is an up-lo-dale actor. liertha
Rennert, as Marian Chandler, a
Louisiana heiress, held the
reputation already established in
I'lattsmouth as a most clever act
ress and played her part to per
fection and most pleasingly to
those present. Fva Lappin, in
the character of Tassie Chandler,
a Southern Rosebud, as usual,
played the part most charmingly.
She is also very clever in all her
parts and in Ibis one she did ex
ceptionally well. Maud Folsom,
in the character of Anastatia
Lovejoy, a Yankee school mar'm,
acted her part to perfection and
demonstrated more than ever that,
she was an accomplished actress.
This article would not be com
plete at all did we not, mention
Charles Hrerkenridgc as 1. Whit
aker, a Yankee lawyer, who, of
course, played the part to perfec
tion, and it could readily be seen
that lie had captured the audience
by the demonstrations made every
time he appeared.
The play was one of the best
ever produced here and the com
pany, in its entirety, deserves
great, credit for the manner in
which it was presented. The en
tire cast is a capable one, and to
gay the least, there is not a poor
actor with the company. Tonight
will be presented "Nebraska," and
as the scenes of this great com
edy are nearer home, should call
forth an immense audience. The
price of admission 10, 20 and
U0 cents is within the reach of
all, and no amusement-loving
lady or gentleman in I'lattsmouth
arid vicinity can afford to remain
The llreckenridge company is
deserving, because their plays are
all first-class and every lady and
gentleman of the cast are first
class artists. Don't, fail to attend,
and buy your tickets early in the
evening and have them reserved
at the Hotel lliley.

would feel much more at home
in that city. She leaves many
warm friends in Plattsmouth,

Miss Mary Hobscheidt, who had
been teaching near Kenosha and
had just finished her school, met
with an unfortunate accident yes
terday afternoon in Omaha. Miss
Hobscheidt and Miss Anna More
ley went to Omaha yesterday, and
in boarding a street car, or alight,
ing from one, as the young ladies
were making they- way up town
to the Burlington station, Miss
Hobscheidt was struck by a pass
ing car, or fell from a moving
car, it is not certain which, and
was rendered unconscious. It is
supposed the young ladies were
going to the station to catch No.
11, as the 'phone message of the
accident was not received by Miss
Hobscheidt's parents until about
9 o'clock. The message came
from Miss Moreley and ony slat
ed that Miss Hobscheidt was in
jured and in a semi-conscious
condition and gave no details of
how the accident happened.
The unfortunate young lady's
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Hob
scheidt, and Mrs. William Morley
left for Omaha on the first train
this morning. Mr. Hobscheidt
understood that his daughter had
been taken to St. Joseph's hospital
and that Miss Moreley was with
her, but he tried for over an hour
last evening, from 11 to 12
o'clock, to get in telephonic com
munication with Miss Morley, but
failed lo do so. He was under I he
impression that his daughter was
very seriously if not fatally injured.
Since the above was put in typo
Mr. and Mrs. Hobscheidt, accom
panied by Miss Moreley and her
mother, brought. Miss Hobscheidt
home on No. 2 5. The young lady
was able to walk to Hie hack by
being assisted by Miss Moreley.
The accident occurred near the
nurliiiglon station at Omaha and
was tne lauit oi ine nioiorinan
starling the car before the pa
sengers had all alighted. Miss
Hobscheidt was thrown backward,
falling on the pavement with such
force as to rentier her uncon
scious. A gentleman on I lie car
sprang lo her assistance, and in
doing so broke his own arm, but
with his other hand pulled Miss
Hobscheidt out of danger of being
run over by the car wheels. Th
injured jady was taken lo a near
by drug r-tore and an ambulanci
sent for, when she was removeii
to St. Catherine hospital.
