One of I lie happiest men In this
section of the county these- days
is our genial friend, G. E. Cook,
residing just southwest of tho
city limits, and the cause, of his
pood spirits is the fact that he
has just'contpleted the cutting of
his wheat crop and has it all safe
in the" shock, something that
thi'io are few other farmers in
this vicinity have accomplished.
Mr. Cook reports I hat the yield of
wheat this year has been very
heavy and he looks for a yield
that will surprise Ihe fanners
when the harvesting season is
over. A great many of the fann
ers in adjoining counties have
.suffered some from having (heir
grain injured by Ihe wind, hail
and heavy rain storms, but Mr.
Cook will bo safe now from having
his crop injured, as he has it safe
in the shock and it will not be in
any danger of being blown down
by the storms that may come up
almost any time. The farmers of
Nebraska have been blessed this
year with an excellent crop of
wheat and are feeling greatly
pleased over tho corn prospects,
which this hot, sweltering weather
is bringing out in old Nebraska in
great shape, and will give us al
most as good a corn crop as wo
have had of wheat. When it comes
to furnishing breadstuffs Ne
. braska cannot bo beat by any
state in the union.

A Very Enjoyable Affair, the Large
Attendance Being Greatly
Pleased With Program.
One of the most pleasant and
enjoyable musical events given in
this city for some time was the
garden fete given on the lawn at
the II. S. Austin home last even
ing by the members of the Platts
mouthi Players' club. A most
highly enjoyed program had been
prepared by the splendid array of
talent present, and every number
without exception, was very
pleasing to the crowd of delighted
spectators who thronged the
lawn, which had been decorated
in a delightful manner by Jap
anese lanterns. , The musical
numbers were given on the porch
of the home, and to those sitting
on the lawn the sounds of the
sweet-voiced vocalists, as well as
the other talented musicians tak
ing part, were very pleasing and
everyone felt deeply indebted to
tho club for their most enjoyable
The program was opened by a
very difficult piano number by
Miss Honor Seybert, one of our
most talented young musicians,
and her manner of handling the
selection drew many words of ap
proval from the delighted audi
ence. Miss I'heme Richardson,
who possesses a very clear, sweet
voice, favored the company with
a most charming vocal solo and
was compelled to respond to an
encore by the delighted hearers.
Miss (Irace Mcllride of Omaha
was on the program for a violin
solo, ami her rendition of the dif
flcult selection was in keeping
with the splendid reputation pos
sessed by Miss Mcliride in the
metropolis as an artist in the
handling of the violin. Miss Mc
Bride appeared later on the pro
grain with another selection,
which was greatly enjoyed and the
gathering was greatly loth to
have her leave the platform. Two
very enjoyable number on the
program were the vocal solos of
Miss (iretehen Donnelly and Mrs.
II. i. llawls, in which these two
talented singers won the hearty
appreciation of .the. spectators, as
both are gifted with beautiful
voices and their selections were
well chosen.
Miss Kinnia Cummins, who is
one of I lie most accomplished
musicians in the city, gave a very
pleasing number, a selection from
II Travatore, ami it was played by
Miss Cummins with only one hand
and in an artistic manner that
demonstrated the wonderful
ability of this talented young lady.
The spirite dance, which was a
feature of the entertainment,
given some time ago by the play
ers' club, was carried out in a
very pleasing manner, which
caused the young ladies taking
part to be called back by the audi
ence for a repetition of the dance.
One of the very pleasing
features of the evening's enter
tainment was the cabaret song by
Miss Catherine Dovey, and her se
lection was one that gave her tine
voice a good scope. Miss Dovey
also appeared later on the pro-
; gram in a vocal selection that was
one of the finest of the evening,
and delighted the friends of this
talented young lady.

A" very pleasing number was
rendered by Andrew Moore, oie
of our most pleasing young men
vocalists, and his number received
much approval from the audience.
Mr. Moore has a splendid voice
and his selection was one that
gave him a splendid opportunity
to display its strength and power.
Mrs. H. S. Austin gave a cabaret
song that was very pleasing to
everyone and heartily applauded.
Miss Gretchen Donnelly gave a
very cnarming selection on me
last part of the program, which
was very pleasing, as was also the
selection of Mr. Jennings Servers.
Miss Barbara Clement was heard
in two numbers, both of which
were well rendered in the charm
ing manner of this pleasing young
singer. Mis Marie Donnelly gave
a very pleasing vocal offering- in
her usua,! pleasing manner.
The program was closed by a
very charming duet by Miss Gret
chen Donnelly and Mrs. II. S. Aus
tin, which was one of the most
delightful features of Ihe even
various vocalists was played by
ing. The accompaniments for the
Misses Emma Cummins, Dorothy
Krilt, Honor Seybert and Mrs. G.
II. Falter, all of whom are finish
ed musicians and their splendid
work contributed much towards
making the program an immense
success, home very delicious re
freshments were served by the
ladies of the club to the company,
which added much to the enjoy
ment of the occasion.
Last evening while in bathing
at one of the lakes near Cedar
Creek, Earl Dull', the 17-year-old
son of Dr. J. H. Dull' of that
place, got out into water that was
Loo deep for him and he sank
several times before he could be
gotten out of the water, and when
brought to the shore he was in

dition, but by efforts on the part
of those near at hand he was re
vived and taken to his home, but
he failed to recover from the ef.

of this young man will be it most
severe blow to his parent and

Lee Mayfield, of the Louisville

and when he does say anything it
is alway's something good. He was

treated that he went right home

Deputy Sheriff Manspeaker was
displaying an ornamental riding
bridle which Mrs. Manspeaker
had just received from the state
Penitentiary from Grant Blunt,
the young man sent up from Cass

that Mrs. Manspeaker prevented
a jail delivery and single-handed
held at bay a number of desperate
criminals until the arrival of her
husband. The bravery displayed
by the lady won the admiration of
not only the pubile, but the men
as well, whose liberty was in her
