Members Celebrate the Event in a
Most Becoming Manner, With
Over 100 Present.
From Fridav's raily.
Last evening the seventeenth
anniversary of t li - Knights aiiI
Ladies of Security was celebrated
in a manner that will impress the
importance of the event upon the
members of the lodge anil the
corninittee in charge of the
gathering had arranged a most
delightful program to aj-
propriately carry out the pleas
ant evening. The committee had
labored most diligently under the
direction of lion. It. U. Windham,
the chairman, and the result of
the delightful eveninir speaks well
for their efforts.
The Holly orchestra opened
the program with a very pleasing
number, and was followed by
Miss Mina Thierolf, who gave a
most delightful number on the
piano that fully demonstrated the
skill of this talented young lady.
Miss Delia Moore rendered a
very charming vocal solo, and in
her sweet clear voice the music
was most thoroughly enjoyed by
the large audience present. Miss
Honor Seybert ami Mrs. A. O.
Kggenberger also gave two very
pleasing piano numbers that, won
for them the appreciation of the
entire audience and were enjoyed
to the utmost by eeryone pres
ent, a both of these ladies Nire
gifted musicians ami their con
tributions to the program was
indeed most pleasing. Mrs. A. J.
Beeson. who is an immense
favorite with the Plattsmouth
people, was on the program for
one of her excellent readings,
and the selection offered by her
was up to the usual high stand
ard of her work as an elocution
ist and there was much pleasure
expressed at having her present
to assist in the great success of
the program. A very pleasant
surprise was given the audience
by having Ten Windham render
a most delightful vocal number,
anil there was a great deal of ap
plause for this young man, who is
gifted in many ways and is rapid
ly forging to the front in his
chosen line. One of the most
thoroughly enjoyed numbers on
the program was that given by
Plnttmmith' talented violin
vitourso. Prof. Frank J. Kolbaba,
and the sweet strains drawn from
the violin by this talented gentle
man marked him as one of the
most gifted musicians that has
ever been heard here in many a
day. He was accompanied by Miss
Emma Cummins on the piano in
a very able manner, which aided
greatly in making the work of
the violinist such a great success.
II. A. McKlwain, Mrs. E. II. Wes
cott and Don C. York all con
tributed vocal selections to the
program in their usual finished
manner that always characterizes
their work in the musical line,
and it is unnecessary t add any
words of praise of their delight
ful contributions to the evening's
entertainment. Miss Ellen
Windham was also prevailed up
on to give a reading on the pro
pram, which was most thorough
After, the program a very
pleasant dance was enjoyed by
the members until a late hour,
and it was voted that the oc
casion, was one of the most
pleasing in the history of Platte

furnished the music for the
dance in their usual pleasing
Last, but by no means least in
the celebration were the efforts
of Colonel J. H. Thrasher and his
committee on refreshments,
which had .prepared for the
gathering of something- like 125
a most sumptuous " repast, and
there was nothing omitted from
the menu that would "'please": the
most fastidious; and "the dining,
room was filled twice with the
jolly crowd to enjoy the "feed"
prepared for them. Mr. and Mrs.
W. S. Soper of Nebraska City
former ollieers of the lodge
were present, arid look purl m

evening at the Oerman Home and
was attended by quite a goodly
number of person:, who were de
lighted with the pleasant time af
forded them. The weather, which
was threatening and disagreeable
under foot, served to keep many
from attending that, otherwise
would have been present, but the
occasion was a very pleasing one
to all who were on hand. The
music for the ball was furnished
by the Plattsmouth orchestra un
der the leadership of Tom Svo
boda, and was very pleasing to
the dancers. To act as the

first gentleman's prize was given
to Albert Schuldice, jr., who ap
peared as an old-time farmer.
Mrs. Cius Carlson, as a Holland

and W. H. Ilnlly, as a comical
Dutchman, carried off the second

when all departed for their
homes, feeling that the event
was indeed a more than usually

MRS. ALVIH MURRAY '
IS IN FAIR WAY OF
The friends of Mrs. Alvin Mur
ray in this city who have been
greatly worried over her state of
health will be pleased to learn
that she is apparently getting
along nicely from the effects of
an operation that she underwent
on Friday at the hospital at Mc
Cook, Nebraska, where she was
taken a few days ago. The
health of Mrs. Murray has not
been the best for some months
past and it was thought advisa
ble to perform the operation
while her condition was such as
she could stand the effects. The
news of the operation was re
ceived here yesterday, and while
of course she was still suffering
greatly, it was believed that the
operation would be a successful
Furnishes Some Fine Light.
On Saturday evening and last
night during the storm the peo
ple oil Main street were greatly
pleased with the ej egant il
lumination on the street furnish
ed by the electruic arc lights in
front of the Gem and Grand
theaters, which made Main street
in that section of the city as light
as day and the lights served to
show many a wearied pedestrian
their way through the storm to
their homes. The enterprise of
Messrs. Shlaes and Gribsky in
keeping ia the front ranks of
progress by installing these
lights is much appreciated by
everyone down town, and if other
places of business were to install
similar lights there would be lit
tle need to complain of having to
plow through the dark.

A Number of Mr. Troop's Old
Army Comrades Drop in Upon
Him Suddenly and Enjoy
a Pleasant Time.
Toe most notable event in i.
A. R. eireles for many ears wa
pulled off at the home of Mr. and
Mis. Robert Troop on r-aturday
evening when several of hi., com
rades, without his knowledge,
gathered at hi.- home to spend the
evening and renew their youth m
leminicences of war times, and
those who were present were:
Comrades Newell. Leonard. Mor
rison. Free-e. Windham. Carter.
Fight and Olenu. The ladie
present were: Mrs. McCaub-y.
Miss Newell, Mi-.- Freese and
Miss May dlenn.
The party was a surprise for
the Troops, but did n't in any
way embarrass them, as they
were full and overflowing with
genuine iiospiiainy, ami in uj
moment eeryone was made to
feel at home and happy. The
evening- was spent in placing
games of different kinds and i:i
singing the old war-time song
and some dancing was indulged
in, but no prizes were given for
this last-named amusement. At
a late hour Mrs. Troop repaired
to the kitchen and "dug tip" an
elegant luncheon, which was not
looked for by the guests, as they
thought the host never kept any
good supply on band unless they
were looking for company, but
ihe result of the e egant repast
more than satistb-d the company
that as entertainers Mr. Troop
and his wife were without an
When the guests began t
leave for home Comrade Wind

yet to perform and no one inii't

('rand Army badge from MeConi
hie post a 1 1 4 1 informed her that
the post at its last meeting- had
unanimously voted h'r a member
ami appointed her to the position
of musical director of the post.
Miss Freeze very gracefully ac
cepted the honor conferred upon
her. with many thanks and
promised to be a g 1 and faith
ful member as long as she lived.
Although no one knew it at the
time it was learned later that
Sunday was the seventy-fifth
birthday of Comrade Troop. Dur
ing the evening Miss Uernese
Newell and Mrs. Troop gave two
very pleasing readings that
served greatly to make the oc
casion a most pleasant one. and
everyone left for home and bed
thinking of the happy time they
had and blaming- the coffee for
keeping them awake.
