From Tuesday's Caiir.
The gold medal declamatory con
test by the pund- cf thi High school

humorous selection. "Sarah Ann';
Flag Party," and the number was not
only given in fine shape, but the se
lection was original and of the com
position of the your.g lady herself,
which certainly speaks well of the
talent possessed by the young people
of the High school.
The second prize, ?l was awarded
to Miss Lorene Chambers of the dra
matic class, who gave "Benedict Ar
nold's Deathbed" a her offering on
the program, and which proved most
impressive and gave the young lady
telle nt essays on the time of the
an ample opportunity to display her
talents along this .line. This contest
was by far the most successful ever
held and the greatest of interest was
demonstrated by the natrons of the
schools of the city.

FILES REPORT ON
From "Wednesday's Ually.
Secretary of State Pool has filed hi
semi-annual financial report with the
governor. The new automobile regis
tration law which he is enforcing has
been in force since April . Up to the
present time he expended for the en
forcement of this law, in postage,
clerical help, number plates, express
and telephone, a total of . 1 ," ; J ,2'J
Thirty-five cents out of each .S3
license fee goes into the state treas
ury, and this fund can be drawn by
the secretary of state for the payment
of expenses of administering the law
About $1,800 for this ca.,h fund has
been received by the state treasurer,
and probably a total of $.",.000 will
soon be paid in from the various
counties. Mr. Pool is confident th
35-cent fee will more than pay the
expenses of enforcing the automobile
registration law. Mr. Pool expended
$1,212.31 in May administering the
law. Many number plates contracted
for have not been paid for by the sec
retary of state. In May 4,124 auto
mobile licenses were issued. Fees from
other sources collected by the sec
retary of state in May amounted to
$10,40. State Journal.

GREAT SHOW SUN
This Great Picture Play Will He at
the Air Dome Sunday
Night, June 6.
Those who have never had an op
portunity to see the workings of an
enormous picture plant, such as W.
N. Selig operates in Los Angeles and
Chicago, have missed one of the
greatest industrial sights in the
world. To see a plant with seven or
eight stock companies all at work at
once time, building and producing
photoplays for the entertainment of
the amusement-loving world, is not
only interesting, but really remark
able. Truly the public have no idea
of the amount of energy and work
entaled in bringing about succes.-ful
motion picture dramas, nor have they
any idea when they see the picture
on the scree of just what was neces
sary to produce it.
One of the interesting incidents
that occured in the making of ''The
Spoilers" tame in the fight scene be
tween Glenister and McXamara. Mr.
William Farnum, who portrayed the
character of Glenister, said to Mr.
Thomas Santschi, as they were about
to play the fight scene, which occurs
in St rove's office toward the con
clusion of the drama, "You're not
afraid to get a real good whipping,
are you?" Mr. Santschi replied that
he was not, and at the same time ask
ed Mr. Farnum if he was willing to
make this a real fight. Mr. Farnum
replied that he was only too anxious
to. With a battery of five cameras
focused on this fight, they were able
to get every interesting incident, a
we!l as the battle from start to finish,
and those who witness this great pic
ture at the theater and Air Dome will
readily realize that this right is
realistic in all its earnestness.
It may be news to those who love the
motion picture play to know that
there is really one great actor in
every drama that you do not see.
This man is known as the director,
lie is responsible solely for the suc
cess or failure of a production. He-
must conform every situation so that
it will be readily interpreted by his
audience. Mr. Colin Campbell is the
master who produced Rex Beach's
wonderful novel, "The Spoilers," and
this production will stand long as a
monument to Mr. Campbell.

county and graduated from the Weep

entering the university, he wished to
take up forestry. Along with this he
also registered for botany. After the
first year of the latter science he was
so interested in the work under Dr.
Bessey that, although he continued
the forestry as well, he devoted the
most of his time to botany, specializ
ing in this department. In his sopho
more year Mr. Pool was made an as
sistant in botany, beginning as botan
nical collector for the department.
This he continued through his under
graduate days, graduating in 11)07

an instructor in the department, and
he also received his ?Ia iter's degree.
About till.- time he did some gradu
ate work in the University of Chicago.
As an instructor, he took up the
classes left by Dr. Clements, who went
to the University of .Minnesota that
year. In ll'K' he was assistant pro
fessor and director of botanical in
struction and research in the Univer-
chigan Biological station.

W. R. C. PLACE SILK
FLAGS IN MANY OF
THE CITY CHURCHES
From Wednesday's1 Daily.
The Woman's Relief Corps of this
city have just completed the task of
placing in the Sunday schools of the
Presbyterian. Christian and Episcopal
church here of handsome silk flags
which will be used to plant in the
minds of the children attending what
the flag really means to the true
American citizen. Last year the
Methodist Sunday school was present
ed with a handsome silk flag similar
to those given this year, and. with the
placing of the flags in the schools the
ladies of the Corps will take up the
woik of providing a flag for every
school room in the city under the pub
lic school system. This v.iil necessitate
'jiiite an outlay, but the ladies feel
that whatever the expense may be the
result in inspiring the mind of young
America to a higher conception of
their country's flag will more than
repay ther.. This is certainly a very
commendable act on the part of the
members of the W. R. C.

WANTED FOR ASSAULT ON
Fr'Tn Wednesda v's Dally.
leslerday afternoon m county
court a complaint was filed by County
Attorney A. G. Cole against one Wil
liam Crawford, charging him with
having committed an assault on the
person of one Herman Stoll, a resi
dent of Nehawka, and a brother-in-law
of Crawford. It seems from what
can be learned of the affair that the
two men Saturday became engaged in
a quarrel or altercation on the streets
of Nehawka, and it was then that
Crawford is alleged to have struck
Stoll and knocked him down. The
man later went to Nebraska City and
at last reports was there, where the
authorities have been notified to look
him up and see that he returns to this
city to face the charge. It is reported
that family troubles were at the bot
torn of the difficulty.
ATHLETIC BASE BALL TEAM
GOES TO EAGLE SUNDAY
From Wednesday's Da!'y.
The Athletic base bull team of this
city have made arrangements to visit
our neighboring town of Eagle on
Sunday next to give an exhibition of
the great national sport with the team
in that city. The boys have been
showing good form of late anil their
visit to Eagle should give the resi
dents there an opportunity of wit
nessing a red-hot game of base ball.
The trip to Eagle will be made over
land by automobile if the weather
permits, and should be an enjoyable
outing for the boys, as well as a chance
for them to difplay their skdl as base
ball artists. Quite a number of root
ers expect to accompany the team.
OAK HILL CEME
TERY NEEDS AT
An Effort Should Be Made to Place
Care of Oak Hill in the Hands of
a Committee of Ladies.
From Wednesday's Ially.
There has been a great deal of
sentiment expressed in the city among
the citizens over the fact that there
should be greater care taken of Oak
Hill cemetery, where sleeps so many
of those who were near and dear to
our people, and it is clear that the
best possible methods in caring for
the cemetery have not been secured,
although the committee of the city
council, as well as the sexton, have
done as much as possible, but it
seems as though the best solution of
the question would be to take it up, as
numerous cities in our neighboring
state of Iowa have, that of creating a
commission or board composed of the
ladies of the community who should
have the absolute regulation and man
agement of the cemetery and its care.
This plan is in force in both Glen
wood and Red Oak, Iowa, and there
it has been found to be most success
ful in every way and a person can
visit the silent city in either of these
places at any time during the sum
mer months and its smoothness ami
cleanliness is something that Jit once
strikes the eye, as everything is kept
up in first-class shape under the di
lection of the ladies, and the result
has been in every way satisfactory.
There is hardly a lot owner in the
cemetery that would not be willing to
contribute a small sum each year and
know that their lots there, as well as
the cemetery in genera', was kept up
in proper shape. The grass through
the cemetery now is quite long, with
the exception of a few lots, and the
street between the different lots filled
with grass that has not been cut and
which presents an unkent and ragged
appearance and, as in the case on
Decoration day. in the early morning
was wet and damp anil a person was
forced to wade through it to reach
Now if the work of caring for the
cemetery was turned over to a com
mission similar to that of the park
commission, much bettei results could
be secured, as they could elevote their
time to this alone and bring out re
sults. The excellent work that the
different church societies of the wom
en of Plattsmouth have done shows
that they generally accomplish what
they start out after, and if they were
placed in charge of seeing that Oak
Hill cemetery was kept up in good
shape you can rest assm red that this
would be done and the expense would
not be any greater than at present,;
with the help of those who own lots in
The plan is one that should be
seriously considered. Tne matter
should be looked over by the com
