advertisement. This sale will coutinue uniil we find a buyer for our stock and will give you an opportu
nity to get goods at ess prices than they were ever offered in Plattsmouth before.
It is impossible to itemize prices on every item, as it would take over a month to go through and ite
mize everything separate. We wish to state that outside of heating and plumbing material we are not
holding back anything, but will discount every article, as we are positively going out of the hardware end
ot our business. With the new line that we have taken it will take all the time we have to give it proper
attention, and if there anything you need in the hardware line you would do well to look over our stock.
We are going to advertise our stock for sale in the leading papers and very likely will have a buyer for
the entire stock in a very short time, so if there is anything you need it would be well to get it at once.

The members and their friends
of the Y. P. S. C. E. of the U. B.
chapel, two miles south of this
city, to the number of about 200,
met for their regular monthly
social gathering last Monday
evening at the pleasant country
home of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar
Gapen. The well known hos
pitality of Mr. and Mrs. Gapen lias
rendered their home a popular
place for the young people, as well
as tne mniijie-ageii and older
ones, to assemble for an enjoy
able social time.
Last Monday night, to one not
acquainted in the vicinity, it
might have appeared that some
thing' unusual had broken loose,
when, about nightfall, the people
began to arrive in automobiles,
buggies, on fool, on horseback,
on motorcycles and every known
mean of travel, until the spacious
lawn of the host and hostess was
alive with good-natured people,
all bent on an evening's enjoy
ment. In addition to the social
features of the occasion, an in
formal program was presented,
consisting of vocal and instru
mental music and dramatic read
ings. Mrs. Max Adams of Waco,
Neb., favored the company with a
most excellent solo and respond
ed gracefully to an encore. One
of the enjoyable piano numbers
was a duet, by Misses Elsie and
Villa Gapen, and Miss Menota
Perry thrilled the audience with
her artistic readings. From a
large punch bowl, conveniently
located, the guests were regaled
throughout the entire evening
with delicious fruit punrb.
Take it, all in all, this was one
of the most, enjoyable events in
the history of the organization,
and one that will be recalled with
pleasure by all those fortunate
enough to be present.
