Mrs. Alcinda Jane Crabill Died
Sunday, January 5, 1914,
After Long Suffering.
Yesf onlay aftrnoon as t tit day
was I rawing t a olos anolher
of tlio piiUH-er ladi.s of Platts
inoutii was summoned to her
final reward, passing away at
ahout and as the spirit of
Mrs. Alcinda Jain; Crabill took
its llipht one of the best beloved
ladies in tin; city passed into the
hands of her Maker Mrs. Cra
bill had been failing gradually in
health for the last two years, and
while her family and friends
were aware thai she had not long
Jo be with them, there was no
apprehension of her immediate
death until after Christmas,
when she gradually became
worse ami continued to sink un
til death came to her Sunday
afternoon as she was surrounded
by her grief-stricken children.
Mrs. Crabill was born in Ohio
seventy-one years ago and lived
there for a number of years,
later coming west, and was mar
ried at LaCross, Wisconsin, in
1802, to V. F. Crabill, and to
this union there are five children
living: W. K. Crabill of Glen-'
wood, Iowa; C. E. Crabill of Lin
coln, Arkansas; J. V. Crabill ai.d
Mrs. . O Krooks of this city,
and Mrs. Isaac King of Superior.
Nebraska. Mr. and Mrs. Crabill
and family came to Plattsmouth
in 18SI and have lived here al
most continuously since tti.1l
time, with the exception of a
year and a half, when they re
sided in Missouri, where the
husband and father passed away,
and the family then removed
back to Plattsmouth, where they
have since resided.
Mrs. Crabill was one of the
most highly esteemed ladies in
the city, and her friends, whom
she had made during her long
residence here, will feel deeply
the loss of one they had known
"for so long and who had endear
ed herself to them by her kind
ly acts during her lifetime, and
tier passing will leave a place
hard to fill in the hearts of those
who knew tier best.
The funeral ' of this worthy
lady will be held tomorrow aft
ernoon at 1:30" from the late
home and 'will be conducted by
ftev. F. M. Druliner of the
Methodist church and the casket
interred at Oak Hill cemetery,
vest of this city.
MEETING OE THE
Election of Officers and Much
Other Important Business to
Come Up for Action.
On Thursday evening of this
week the plattsmouth Com
mercial club of this city wilt hold
their regular meeting, which the
holiday season made it necessary
to postpone from December, and
at this time there will be mat
ters of vital importance to he
brought up for the consideration
of the club and its members, and
which will have a bearing on the
program for the betterment of
the town during the coming year.
The club has, during the last two
years, been a vital element in
the upbuilding of the city, and
by hard and faithful work on
the part of the club otlicers there
has been many things secured
that it would have been impos
sible to have gotten through any
The question of the officers for
the ensuing year, which will
come up at t tie meeting Thurs
day, is a vital one great care
should be exercised in the selec
tio of the men who will be at the
head of the affairs of the club,
and wideaway men who are alive
to the interests of the city should
be picked for the positions which
will have charge of many pro
jects for the betterment of the
town, and men selected who will
give their lime, or so much of it
as possible to looking after dif
ferent matters that from time to
time arise to confront the club,
and it is due largely to the push
and deep interest taken in the
public welfare by the present
ofiicers that many of the im
provements during the past year
were secured, and it will be
necessary during the coming
year to exercise the same vigi
lance if other things desired for
the development of city are se
cured. The changes in time which
were projected several weeks ago
by the Burlington were put into
force yesterday on that road and
the new time-card found very
satisfactory to almost all the
travelers coming into or going
from this city. The change in
Xo. 14 was one that will meet
with the approval of everyone
traveling over the road, as it al
lows a person to get out of
Omaha much earlier in the even
ing than formerly and reaches
this city at a more convenient
hour. The change in No. 2 is
not so satisfactory, as it leaves
Omaha at an early hour in the
afternoon, making it quite in
convenient to t lie travelers for
the east from this city, but the
change will not affect th flu
es:?'. -Or.K'ba lavo, as nioit this
goes on No. 12, the train leav
ing there at G o'clock.
Wonderful Cough Remedy.
Dr. King's New Discovery is
known everywhere as the remedy
which will surely stop a cough
or cold. D. P. Lawson of Kidson,
Tenn., writes: "Dr. King's New
Discovery is the most wonderful
cough, cold and throat ami lung
medicine I ever sold in my store.
It can't be beat. It sells without
any trouble at all. It needs no
guarantee." This is true, be
cause Dr. King's New Discovery
will relieve the most obstinate of
coughs and colds. Lung trouble
quickly helped by its use. You
should keep a bottle in the house
at all times for all the members
of the family. 50c and 61.00.

OF M. P. AIID ITS
CHANGE OF Til
The matter of the change -in
time of the Missouri Pacific on
its Louisville line, which was
called to the attention of the
public a few days ago through
the columns of the Journal, has
called forth much kicking from
the members of the jury who ar
rived here this morning, and who
learned for the first time of this
change, which makes it very in
convient to them in going from
this city to their homes, but
there is hopes of relief, as the
matter has been taken up by
President Schneider of the Com
mercial club with the state rail
way commission, and he was in
formed that they would lake
some action in the matter in a
few days. The commissioners
have been trying for the past
two or three days to get in touch
with the division superintendent
at Falls City, who has charge of
the trains, and to try and have
the matter adjusted so that the
public will not be compelled to
suffer any inconvenience as the
result of the change, in time,
which was made without the
knowledge of the state railway
commission, who looks after the
welfare of the citizen?. The
change in time does not win the
railroad anything at all and it
proves to be a most incon
veniecing matter to those who are
compelled to travel over the road,
as it makes it necessary for
them to either go to Omaha or
Union in order to make connec
tions to place them home the
same day. The Missouri Pacific
should be compelled to come to
time and show the proper con
sideration for the traveling pub
lic in making up their time
schedules for use on their road.
BRISK 111 CASS COUNTY
The marriage market seems to
be taking on a new lease of life,
as County Judge Beeson was
given the opportunity this morn
ing to issue two of the valuable
little pieces of paper, that gives
happiness to so many hearts
throughout the country. Rich
ard Henry Tolhurst, aged 25, and
Miss Edna (Ireen, aged 21, both
of Elmwood, were the first
couple to secure the necessary
permit to wed, and later the
judge gave out a license to Clar
ence Erhart and Miss Mary
fiesiana Boom, both of the vi
cinity of Wabash. The last
named couple come from two of
the most prominent families in
the central part of the county,
the bride being the charming ami
accomplished daughter of T. J.
Boom, one of the prominent
farmers of that locality, while
the groom is the son of William
G. Erhart, one of the prominent
citizens of near Manley, and is a
young man very highly esteemed
by a host of friends in the
locality where he has made his
home. This couple will be unit
ed in marriage Wednesday morn
ing at St. Patrick's church in
Manley by Rev. Father William
Biggins, and they will make their
future home at Manley.
Saturday afternoon Ford Fel
lact and Miss Cora Saylor were
brought over from Weeping Wa
ter in an automobile by Elmont
Preston and were taken direct to
the court house, where they se
cured the necessary papers to
permit them to become united in
the bonds of wedlock, and they
secured the services of Judge
Beeson to tie the matrimonial
knot, which he done in his usual
pleasing manner, and the young
people returned to their home
the same afternoon in the car.
The bride resides in the vicinity
of Weeping Water, while the
groom is at present a resident of
Montana, where he is engaged in
ranching, and there the newly
wedded couple will make their
future home. Their friends at
Weeping Water will be pleased
to learn of their new happiness
and there is no doubt that they
received a royal welcome when
4-hey returned home Saturday
