COOK ONE OE FIRST TQ FINISH HARVESTING 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.

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 program. 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.

AT CEDAR CREEK 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 w hat seemed to be a drowned con 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. feels of the water and died this morn ing at 0 o'clock. The death of this young man will be it most severe blow to his parent and friends in Ihe county and thev will eceive the most sincere sym pathy of everyone in their, loss It was reported in this city that the young man had been in swim ming with some companions a in lad been ducked several limes by some of Ihe parly, who tried to force him to swim, as he was not used to being out in the water, and as a result of their repeater luckings he was so exhausfei: that he was not able to get out alone and had nos some by slanders came to his rescue would never have got ton out alive. This enort, however, could not be verified. DELIVERY TEAM OF H. M. SOENNICHSEN RUNS AWAY Quite a lively runaway occur red yesterday in the south part of the city on the Louisville road when the team which was attach ed to tho delivery wagon of II. M Soennichsen became frightened at an automobile and shied to the side of the road, overturning tho wagon and throwing tho driver, Don Arries, out onto the road. rhe wagon was dragged a con- considerable difficulty the wagon could be stopped, and Don re ceived some very severe bruises from being dragged along. After considearble difficulty the wagon was righted, and when the team was started up two of the wheels on the wagon fell off, with the re sult that the wagon was again overturned, and it was necessary to secure help from some of the near-by residents to place the wheels back on the wagon and Ihe outfit brought, back to town. Off for Pacific Coast.

The young ladies will also take ad vantage of the opportunity afford ed to visit at Ihe various points of interest along Ihe coast and have one of the limes of their lives on the trip, returning about IS DROWNED WHILE BATHING t mrun Lee Mayffeld Feels Kindly Toward Plattsmouth, Notwithstanding Our Jail Success. Lee Mayfield, of the Louisville Courier, than whom no better f el- ow ever drew the breath of life, never can find heart to say any thing bad about the county seat, and when he does say anything it is alway's something good. He was down the other day and while here le saw so many things . that pleased his fancy, and was so well treated that he went right home and penned the following: You need have no fear down in Chief Hainey's town that's lattsmouth if you put your foot on the soft pedal and don't attempt to discuss the late amented jail question. The writer was in Plattsmouth the other day and met the chief (not in an official way, however,) and we found him to be a most pleas ant gentlemen. But most police men are pleasant unless you so far forget your early training as to Iry to put on a stunt that would not look llattering in print. And speaking of print. Plattsmouth is Ihe largest town in all Ne braska with but one newspaper, and complimentary or not, it is the poorest newspaper town in Ihe state, considering its popula tion. But it, has one newspaper, the Dailv and Semi-Weekly Journal, that is far ahead of the town in enterprise as could be imagined The Journal for years was f source of much worry to the democratic politicians of the county and more than once did the sheriff lack a "For Sale" notice on the door. At last the Bates' caiue up from Missouri and purchased the wreck. From the start, although slowly, it began to show improvement. The boys had but little money ami conse quently had to go slow, but they kept going. Today I lie Daily Journal is one of the best and newsiest small daily papers in the slate. The newspaper and job printing plant is unexcelled and Bob Bales, who is now the sole owner, is making so niucn money that he expects to spend his win tecs hereafter in Italy. So fast s his business growing that he finds I hat his present headquar lers are insufficient and is having an addition built on Ihe rear which will make a two-story building, 2ixl'i0. In tho new ad dition will be installed a new Goss perfecting press, which will have a capacity of from 3,000 to 4,000 copies of an eight page news paper complete and folded ready for mailing per hour. Bob Bates has done Ibis all in a dozen years in a town that has furnished more newspaper obitu ary notices than any town in all Ihe west. The Courier congratu lates Ihe Journal on its success. 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 counly two years ago for car breaking. It will bo remembered 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 hands. Blunt was one of the party that had planned to escape Thero wasn't much doing around the court house too hot perhaps, yet in the treasurer's office Mike Tritsch and Miss Gehring were busy fixing up the lax list. Judge Beeson was on the job, but could scarcely be said to be working at it. Andy Snyder was sticking around recording a few deeds. Clel Morgan was on hand in the clerk's office, but making ih s deputy do all the work. Jim Robertson had gone to the shade near the site of the new county jail, while Cal Taylor, county attorney, seemed to be working over time and his was Ihe busiest office in the entire building. We are going back some lime when the weather gets cool. CASTOR I A For Infants and Children.
