JF JULY !
If Not, Why Not? Let Majority of
Business Men of Plattsmouth
Say Yes or No.
'the near approach of the
Fourth of July has ci.used many
in Hie cily who are interested lo
raise the question as to whether
we are to celebrate the glorious
Fourth or not in JMattsmouth this
year. Last year there was an ef
fort made on the part of some to
start the ball to rolling, but it,
like tin; fall festival, went glim
mering. If a success is to be
mad. of a celebration, now is the
time to start and every eil'ort
should be made to see what can
be done in the way of securing'
attractions and amusements if
the day is to be celebrated. Then
were large numbers of the farniei
resident of the county disap
pointed last year in the failure to
celebrate, as they would rather
by far come to JMattsmouth than
any town in the county, and feel
u'eepiy that they were not a Hord
ed the chance of spending their
Fourth here, where they could
visit with their friends and hae
a good time.
The success of everv eelebra-
tion held here in the last twenty
years has clearly shown that
I'lattsmoiith is the one place in
the county that can draw the
crowds all Hie time, although this
is in no way disparging to the
smaller towns in the county that
hae shown their enterprise 1"
holding celebrations in Hie past
few years, when otherwise the
great natal day would have slip
ped by without recognition by
pulil i. celebrations.
I.et the ciliens think over the
proposition and try and arrange a
celebration that will furnish
amusement for our own people
ami aiso ior me residents oi me
county who may desire to come
here to celebrate.

as the result of falling from the

alonjr the alley near the residence
of John YVynii, when the wupm

down toward Lincoln avenue,
where they turned north and
started for the business part of
the city. Ynun? Uriltain fell out
of the seat down between the
tongue and the wami and was
badly bruised and cut and il re
quired the services of a surgeon
to fix him up. The driver, Karl
llde, sustained, no serious in
juries beyond a severe shaking up
and several minor bruises. The
team continued their llijrht down
Lincoln avenue until they reached
Third street, where they ran into
lie yard at the lMnpIe home and
were stopped there.

Take Plenty . of Time to Eat.
There is a saying that "rapid
eating is slow suicide." If you
have formed the habit of eating
loo rapidly yuu are most likely
suffering from indigestion or
constipation, which will result
eventually in serious illness un
less corrected. Digestion begins
in the mouth. Food should be
thoroughly masticated and in
salivated. Then when you have a
fullness of the stomach or feel
dull and stupid after eating-, take
one of Chamberlain's Tablets.
Many severe cases of stomach
trouble and constipation have
been cured by the use of these
tablets. They are easy to lake
and most agreeable in eH'cct. Sold
