started from Omaha yesterday
afternoon on scheduled time and
passed this city about 1:05, sail
ing several hundred feet in the
air over the Missouri river, which
is to be his guide in his trip to
Kansas City. The. 'flight made a
beautiful appearance from this
city, flying high in the air like a
great bird and heading for the
southeast, he was soon lost from
sight in the distance'. A large
crowd gathered at. the Burlington
station to witness the passage of
the aviator and all were highly
pleased with the flight made.
The aviator met with a little
difficulty several miles north of
this city, when his engine did not
work in good shape and he was
compelled to float on the water for
about 15 minutes until he could
get the machine in working order.

Another Great Musical Comedy at
the Parmele Theater Wed
nesday, November 13.
The Plattsmouth Players club
met last evening at the M. W. A.
hall and the meeting was largely
attended and the members were
treated to a jolly social gathering,
as well as the regular business ol
the club.
The membership of the clut
has grown so large that, it is im
possible to meet at any private
home, ho that it has become
necessary to secure the Woodman
hall for the llrst and third Wed
nesdays of each month for the
A most delightful program was
given last evening after the busi
ness session of the club, consist
ing of vocal solos by Miss Zelma
Tuey and Mrs. II. S. Austin, in a
most charming manner, as well as
two very pleasing readings by
Misses F.llen Windham and Ber
nice Newell, who are both pos
sessed of great talent along this
line. Following the program
three new members were initiated
into the mysteries of the club and
then a delightful informal social
lime was spent by the members of
the club.
The club is preparing for their
new minstrel show, to be given
soon, and have worked up an en
tire new second part entitled "The
(Colored Suffragette," and it prom
ises to be one of the best at trac
tions that has been produced in
this city since their successful
minstrel last season. New songs
will lie secured for I hi' tuneful
llrst, part, and with the talent late
ly added to the club, it, ought to
be an immense success.
This is one of the greatest
musical comedies on the road to
day, and having an open dale,
Manager Shlaes jumped at the op
portunity of getting the company
here on Wednesday night, Novem
ber 13. The company is com
posed of 'i people and every actor
is an artist, in his or her line.
This is said to be a greater
amusement attraction than "The
Prince of Tonight," which gave
such great, satisfaction to our
people a few nights since. The
Journal desires to congratulate
Manager Shlaes on bis good luck
in securing such a noted ocmpany
and feel almost assurred that bis
efforts will lie rewarded by the
presence of a large audience next
Wednesday night.
Having noticed in the papers
the grand satisfaction "The Man,
the flirl and the (lame" have been
giving in other cities, we can
truthfully recommend it in ad
vance to our people as fine of the
greatest musical comedies ever
presented in this city. This com
pany does not make a practice of
playing as small cities as Platts, and therefore our people
should appreciate Manager Shlaes
effort in getting the best, to
patronize them to the extent of
giving him a big house, that other
big shows may be induced to come
to Plattsmouth. Ilemember the
dale Wednesday, November 13
and don't fail to make your ar
rangements to atlend.
Another of Plattsmouth's
charming young lady has fallen a
captive of lan Cupid in the person
of Miss Olga Saltier, daughter of
Mayor and Mrs. J. P. Sattler of
this city. The llrst, definite news
of the wedding was the notice in
the Omaha papers of the marriage
license of Harley M. Hurdiek of
that city and Miss Sattler, al
though the family and friends
have been expecting the wedding
for some time, but, the young folks
succeeded in putting a surprise
over on their friends in this city.
The wedding occurred in the me
tropolis yesterday afternoon.
The bride is one of the most
popular young ladies in the city,
where she was born and reared to
womanhood, and their friends are
legion among the young people of
the city. The groom is quite well
known here, having been a fre
quent visitor here at the home of
his brother, Hoy Uurdick and
family. He has a very good posi
tion with one of the leading
wholesale houses of Omaha, and
it is expected that the young peo,
pie will make that city their future
home. The. newly wedded pair are
expected in the city this evening
on No. 2 for a short visit with
their relatives. The friends of the
young couple in this city will join
in wishing Ihem a wedded life full
of sunshine and happiness.
Yesterday W. A. Fight received
his line pacing mare, "Squaw,"
which has been out. on the racing
circuit. This mare was on some
of the best tracks in the country,
and in every event was able to se
cure some of the best prizes and
purses. Mr. Fight is justly proud
of this splendid specimen of
horseflesh and hopes to see her
carry oJT a great many more
purses during the next racing sea
son. The horso was taken to the
farm of Mr. Fight, near Mynard,
for the winter season.
