Young People Have the Time of
Their Lives, but in Different
Manner Than Usual.
From Friday's Daily.
Last evening the classes of the
Platlsmouth High school took ad
vantage of the witching effects
that halloween is supposed to have
on the human race and pave their
different class parties, which were
productive of much enjoyment for
those participating, and an
agreobale feature of the evening
was the absence of any rowdyism,
as has sometimes been the case in
the past events of this character.
The members of the senior
class assembled early in the even
ing at the home of their class ad
visor, Miss Grace Newbraneh, and
the party chartered a large hay
rack that conveyed them to the
home of their class president,
Miss, Florence Richardson, at My
nard, where the class was most
royally entertained by Miss Rich
ardson and her parents. Games
and music furnished the chief
amusement of the evening, and
after enjoying the delicious re
freshments provided, the party re
turned to town, feeling that the
class of 1913 was the best bunch
on earth.
The juniors gathered at the
home of Miss Emma Cumimns and
accompanied by their advisor,
Miss Lillian Cole, drove out to the
home of Miss Mildred Snyder, near
Mynard, where they proceeded to
have the time of their lives for.
several hours, building a huge
bonfire over which they toasted
rnarshmellows, roasted wenies
and enjoyed one great big time
out in the open and in a good old
fashioned halloween parly until
the lateness of (he hour compell
ed (hem to return to (heir homes.
The Sophomore class partici
pated in a delightful halloween
party last evening. There were
twenty-seven members of the
class and their class advisor, Miss
Woblfanger, in attendance. Dur
ing the early hours of the evening
they indulged in a hayrack ride,
being driven in and about the city,
titer which they drove to the
home of Mrs. J. Stenner in the
west part of the city, where the
remainder of the evening was
wbiled away in a most enjoyable
manner. The rooms of the Sten
ner home bad been very at
tractively decorated in the sopho
more colors, intermingled with
decorations characteristic of the
halloween season. The young peo
ple spent some very happy mom
ents in music, interspresed with
all kinds of games. At a late hour
delicious refreshments, also char
acteristic of the halloween season,
were served, after which the
sophomores departed for their
homes, having most thoroughly
enjoyed themselves.
The freshmen of the High
school enjoyed one of the best
parties they have had in recent
years at (he home of Iheir class
mate, Paul Ilandley. Miss Maddox
had assisted the young people in
decorating and the Handley home
was made beautiful with the dec
orations of halloween and showed
great artistic ability on the part
of the members of (he class and
Iheir advisor. The evening was
spent in games and music and de
licious refreshments were served,
which were greatly enjoyed by

The Hall Beautifully Decorated
and the Dancers Enjoyed a
Splendid Time.
From Friday's Dally.
One of the most delightful
dances given so far this season
was that given last evening at the
Modern Woodmen hall by the
Plattsmouth Players' club. The
decorating committee, of which
Miss Bernice Newell was chair
man, certainly ought to feel
proud of the beautiful appearance
of the ball room. The lights in
the hall were shaded with yellow
which cast a most beautiful gold
en glow over the gathering of
merry dancers and added greatly
to the halloween spirit that pre
vailed throughout the decorations.
The balcony of the hall was
draped with streamers of yellow
and from the four corners of the
hall streamers of paper bearing
witches and tiny paper pumpkins
were strung, as well as along the
sides of the hall making a scene
that was most pleasing to the eye.
The refreshments were in keeping
with the decorations-and consisted
of cider served from a barrel set
up on a three-cornered wooden
pedestal and which furnished
much fun for the young people.
There were about thirty-five
couple present and they enjoyed
the beautiful strains of the dance
music furnished by the M. W. A.
orchestra until a late hour. There
were a number of out-of-town
visitors present to enjoy the oc

Every Taxpayer Should Be In

a Safe Prison.
From Friday's Iaily.
Vote lor the new county jail
proposition; let that be your
watchword when you go to the
polls next Tuesday. The best in
terests of the county demands
that you cast your vote for the
jail and do away with the "old
shell" that has served as an ex
cuse lor a jail for all ttiese years
ind which has cost the taxpayers
more than a new jail would to
keep it in repair.
It costs Cass county $1,500 each
ear to keep the jail running, and
here is the economy of the tax-
ayers in pouring money into ine
Id wreck that is growing worse
year alter year, when it will cost
very little more to put up a build
ing that will not have to be re
paired two or Ihree limes a year
to keep it from tumbling down on
the jailor and the prisoners con
fined there.
The heating plant for the court
iouse-inust be fixed up and if the
new building is not put up it will
be necessary to tear out the north
end of t lie court house at great
expense in order to install new
toilers, which would cost as much
money as it would to put up the
oiler house in connection with
the new jail building. Grab hold
of the towline, boys, and give
Cass county a new jail and save
the taxpayers money.

The ignoranco of voters in re
gard to how to mark a ballot at
the coming election is shown in
many questions received by the
secretary of state. Instructions
to voters will be posted at each
polling place. These will show
that there are three ways to mark
a ballot.
The simplest way is to, make a
cross in a party circle at the top
of the ballot. This carries a vote
for every nominee of the party in
whose circle the cross is made.
The next simplest way is to
vole, a straight ticket with excep
tions. This is for the convenience
of persons who do not wish to
vote for all (he candidates of one
political party. It is done by
making a cross in a party circle at
the top of the ballot and then
making a cross lower down on the
ballot opposite the names of any
candidates of some other political
party whom the voter desires to
vote for.
If one desires to vote a party
ticket in the main and to vole for
eight presidential electors of
some other party, he ran make a
cross in Ins parly circle at the
top and then make a cross in a
small circle at the right of a group
of eight electors who represent
some other political parly. A
cross in the circle at the right of
a group of eight electors is not
a vole for any other candidates on
the ticket.
The third and most laborious
way lo vote is to make a cross in
a squaro at the right of each
candidate a voter desires to sup
