From Tuesday's Dally.
There was a packed house
resent last evening at the Grand
theater lp witness, the appear
ance of Annie Abbott, the wom
an who defies anyone to lift her
against her will, and. her per
formances were truly baffling to
those who were called on the
stage to attempt to life her. The
persons selected were picked
from among the audience at ran
dom and included several alhletie
young men, who pulled and push
ed and strained in their attempts
to lirt Miss Abbott from her
feet, but to no avail, as she stood
firm and all their efforts were in
vain. One of the chief features
of the show was when the whole
ten young men grasped a heavy
upright pole and attempted to
hold it down, when Miss Abbott
grasped it with one hand, and
despite the weight, carried it
across the stage. The work of
this lady is truly marvelous and
it baffles one to tell the secret of
her wonderful power, but there
is no denying that she is without
doubt. a mystery to all those who
were present last evening at the
Colonel Thrasher Down Town.
From Tuesday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon Colonel
J. II. Thrasher wa able to be
down town for the first time in
almost three weeks, as he has
been suffering1 from an attack of
stomach trouble, but the colonel
is feeling in very good shape
and mighty glad to again be able
to be up and around, and his
numerous friends were more
than delighted to be able to have
him with them again. He was
down this morning feeling better
than ever and rejoicing1 in the
bright,, clear day.

Methodist Church Parlors Scene
of a Pleasant Gathering
Last Night.
Last evening the Standard
Bearers of the Methodist church,
with their superintendent, Mrs.
E. G. Hill, gave an entertainment
in the church parlors in honor
of their mothers, and the event
proved one of the most delightful
that this organization has ever
held, and the beautifully dec
orated rooms, which displayed
the colors of the society, blue
and white, and a profusion of
white carnations, was lighted by
the sunshine of the many happy
mother faces, who were there aa
the guests of honor for the
casion. The sumptuous banquet
served by the young ladies of the
societv was most delicious and
appetizing and each young lady
had the pleasant task assigned
her of serving her own mother
with the delicious repast which
had been prepared, and the scene
was a very pleasing one, as the
thirty-two members and guests
gathered around the banquet
board to enjoy the delicacies
prepared for them,
arranged for the occasion, which
arraigned for the occasion, which
served to round out the perfect
delails of the banquet. The
Young Men's lee club was pres
ent and furnished three
pleasing numbers to the
ines. entertainment, and
sweet voices were loudly encored
bv the delighted auditors. Mrs.
William Baird gave one of her
always enjoyable readings that
added much to the value of the
program, and as this talented
lady has appeared several times
before Plattsmouth audiences it
is not necessary to state that her
number was most thoroughly en
joyed. A very pleasing musical
number of the program was given
by Mrs. ft. II. Wescott in her
usual pleasing manner, which al
ways pleases, and these numbers
on the program made the even
ing's delight most complete and
the mothers present felt that it
was certainly a treat for them to
be present with their daughters
and enjoy the occasion.
At the banquet Miss May Glenn
presided as toasi mistress, anu
responses on behalf of the guests
were made by Mrs. Handley and
Mrs. F: M. Druliner, both of
whom expressed their happiness
at being able to be with the

Arrival of a Fine New Son.
From Tuesday's Dully.
The news has just been re
ceived here of the arrival at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. V. F.
Truelson, in Omaha, of a fine
new nine-pound son, who arrived
on Sunday. The relatives here
were greatly pleased to learn of
the new addition to the family,
and their happiness over the
event is only surpassed by that
of the parents. Mrs. Truelson

The Senior Duetchen Klubb.
From Tuesday's Daitr-
The Senior Duetchen Klubb
was entertained last evening by
Misses Helen Egenberger and
May Glenn at the home of the
former. Various topics were dis
cussed. One of the most enjoy
able things of the evening was
"War Die Duetchen I.ieder," in
which Master Stewart Egenberg
er accompanied the young people
mit ' seinem trommel. At a late
hour the hostesses served a de
licious two-course luncheon and
the young people departed de
claring that the Senior Duetchen

in vogue in several of the cities
of the state. The mayor also
stated that his attention had
been called to a bad piece of side
walk on the east side of the Mar
shall property on North Seventh
street, and it was ordered re
paired. Councilman Luhinsky in
quired how the shed to shelter
the street sprinkler was coining
on and was informed by flio
mayor that I he work would be
started at once, as the wet
weather had kept the carpenters
from' .getting- busy, but they
would get after it at once.
Councilman Buttery called lb
attention of the council to a bad
place in Washington avenue,
where water had been plan t", in
the yard of N. K. Peoples, and h"
asked that the place be epji;-el.

The need of some piling at
Twelfth and Main .streets was
brought to the attention of the
council, as the water around the
tiling there had washed away the
dirt and made a very dangerous
place, and the work was ordered
done at once.
Street Commissioner Lutz
stated to the council, that the
work on the culvert ordered near
Second and Gold streets had not
been carried out, as when lie
found it on private property and
the owner objected strongly to
his doing anything with it.

"When I left my old home in
Nebraska I thought that I would
not get interested in elections
again, but year by year I am be
coming more and more interest

F. Kapp had been a very promin

Nebraska before he chose Lous

was running for city attorney.

same deep interest, in the affair.-
of our city that he did in a--i-t-

the court of Judue M. Archer late
Saturday afternoon. cminr on
