The Best Flour
on the Market
It seems from what can be
earned of the facts in the case of
Mrs. Beatrice llartwell, who was
ordered sent to the asylum a few
days ago, that she was deserted
and abandoned by her son-in-law
and daughter near Weeping Wa
ter. The lady came there with
her relatives some time ago and
they were employed on a farm
uear that rity and the daughter
and her husband left there sud
denly, leaving the old lady in the
house, where she was found and
the county insanity board untitled.
After the hearing before the board
in this city it was learned that the
parties were still in the vicinity
of Weeping Water, and as it was
impossible to get any intelligent
answers from Mrs.' llartwell, the
sheriff was sent out to try and
secure the daughter in order that
more facts in the case could be
earned. If it is true that the old
lady was wilfully deserted it
seems very inhuman on the part
of her relatives, as she is in such
state that it is impossible for
her to lake care of herself.
A meeting will be held Saturday
afternoon al 1 o clock at the.
Commercial club rooms in the
Coates' block' for the purpose of
forming a (.ass County Auto-
nioniie owners association, anil
all interested in the matter should
make it a point to lie on hand.
The meeting was to have been
held some time ago, -but the
weather did not permit, and so
the call is made for Sal unlay.
The organization of I lie auto
mobile owners will prove of great
benefit to everyone joining and
there is no reason why every
owner of a machine in the coun
ty should not be on hand to assist
in the formation of Ihe organiza
tion. At the meeting it is ex
pected to elect the officers for
the association, as well as to hear
a number of addresses on mat
ters of interest to those owning
machines. Throughout the state
similar organizations have been
formed and have proven of great
benefit in Ihe securing of good
roads, as well as an understand
ing as to Ihe proper use of the
streets and highways for auto
mobiles, and has been helpful to
the general public, as well as the
members of the association.
From Wednesday's Dally.
The boy scout movement, which
has been attempted in this city
several times in the past two
years is to be revived and from
the interest shown in the matter
it is quite likely that it may prove
a success. In response to the in
vitation of" the committee in
charge of the matter Mr. McCaf
ferty of Omaha, who has had
charge of a number of troops of
scouts in the metropolis In the
past few years, camu down yes
terday afternoon and attended a
meeting of the committee, which
was held at'the office of Dr. C. A.
Marshall in the Coates' bLock and
the matter discussed thoroughly
by Mr. McCafferty, and his re
marks were received most favor
ably by the committeemen, and as
this gentleman will probably take
up the matter of handling the or
ganization and will make it a
splendid success. The movement
to organize the Boy Scouts was
attempted here twice and the last
time, under the direction of Rev.
Allan O. Wilson, it wa3 fairly
well launched when sickness com
pelled the abandonment of the
work by the leader, and it is
hoped by the committee to carry
on the organization as perfected
by this gentleman and afford the
young boys of the city a recrea
tion that is moral, clean and up
lifting and prove a benefit to them
in every way. Thero are a large
number of the leading men of the
city interested in the movement,
and if the proper arrangements
can be made it will be started out
stronger than ever.

In keeping with the general
spirit of improvement that is be
ing followed throughout the city,
the front room of the Plattsmouth
State bank building, at the corner
of Main and Sixth streets, has
jost been redecorated very hand
somely, which has added greatly
to the appearance of the building.
The work was done by Frank
Gobelman and his assistants and
presents a very artistic appear
ance, being finished in two
shades of green, light and dark,
which combination is very pleas
ing to the eye.
The front of the store of
Krohler Brothers has also re
ceived a new dress, which has
added greatly to the looks of the
store and makes a decided im
provement in the block.
Mr. Gobelman has also just
finished repainting the Gem thea
ter building and it is now one of
the neatest appearing little pic
ture show houses in this part of
the state, the colors being chosen

bination of colors and tints enter
ing into the decoration of this
front is one that makes it very
nice appearing and a source of
much pride to the owner of the
theater, as well as the decorator
who diil the artistic work.
These little improvements do
not cost a great deal and add im
mensely to Ihe appearance of the
buildings, as well as Ihe city in
general, and the enterprise of the
owners of the buildings, who have
made these improvements, is very
commendable and shows the right
