That the city of Plattsmouth has
shown a good .healthy progress along
the line of improvements is shown by
the figures returned by the assessors
on the amount of improvements made
during the last year, which totals
some $30,000, as far as it is able at
this time to ascertain from the re
turns made. This is a very pleasing
showing and certainly shows in no
unmistakable manner the feeling of
confidence possessed by the citizens
in their home town. The spirit of
improvement is spreading constantly,
and in residence and business sections
alike the property has been gotten in
good shape, while a large number of
the property owners are contemplat
ing the starting of new residences
during the next few months that will
add greatly to the appearance of the
city and its value as a home town.
Lots that are anyways suitable for
building purposes are being grabbed
up and utilized to build upon, as the
demand for houses is constantly
growing and the supply is greatly
less than the demand for them. With
the showing made in the year just
closed, since the last assessment, in
the amount of improving there is
every reason to believe that it will
more than equal the ?30,000 mark be
fore the time of the next assessment
rolls around.
The efforts of the live and enter
prising citizens of the community in
carrying on the program of improve
ment is to be commended, and those
who had by their improvements m
their homes and business houses as
sisted in making the splendid showing
have certainly the right spirit.
Last Tuesday Miss Josephine Rys
closed a very successful year of
teaching at school district No. IS, an 1
in honor of it gave a picinc, in which
the pupils, with their parents and
friends, all joined in and helped to
make the day a pleasant one. At
noon a large dinner was spread, to
which all did ample justice. Miss Rys
has been greatly pleased with her
year's teaching and also made a large
circle of warm friends while engaged
in the work at her school. Miss Ella
Lohnes was the lucky one to receive
the prize for being the best speller in
the school. We are informed that
Miss Ella has taken the prize in spell
ing for the past four years, for which
she is certainly to be praised. Miss
vys has the best wishes of the patrons
of the school and they wish for her
years of success in her teaching.

Sun and Wind Bring Out Ugly Spots
How to Remove Easily.
Here's a chance, Miss Freckle-face,
to try a remedy for freckles with the
guarantee of a reliable dealer that it
will not cost you a penny unless it re
moves the freckles: while if it does
give you a clear complexion the cx
pense is trifling.
Simply get an ounce of othine
double strength from any druggist
and a few applications should show
you how easy it is to rid .yourself of
the homely- freckles and get a bcauti
ful complexion. Rarely is more than
one ounce needed for the worst case.
Be sure to ask the druggist for the
double strength othine, as this is the
prescription sold under guarantee of
monev back if it fails to remove
Fred Hesse, who for the past year
has been a sufferer from a very severe
attack of paralysis, is reported as
being in a very serious condition at
his home in the south part of the city
and his family have been greatly wor
ried for the past few days over the
outcome. Mr. Hesse has been help
less since suffering the stroke some
thing over a year ago, and it has only
been possible for him to get around
a little with the use of an invalid
chair, but in the last few days his con
dition has grown very much worse
and it is necessary to constantly have
someone in attendance on him at all
Last evening there was quite a dis
turbance at a residence on Lincoln
avenue, where a husband and wife
and mother-in-law of the wife became
engaged in a general controversy,
and the wife was "picked'' on by the
husband and mother, while the tones
in which the conversation was carried
on was such as to greatly disturb the
peace of the neighborhood. This noon
another affray between the wife and
mother-in-law was staged and the
police called to the scene of the
trouble to quiet the affair. As soon
as Chief Barclay arrived on the scene
a rapid fire of statements from both
sides were fired, but as far as can be
learned the wife has been made the
victim of the abuse of the rest of the
family, and unjustly so, as she is a
hard-working woman whose life is
spent in a continuous drudge and the
earnings po to apply on the keep of
the family. This matter has been
continuing for some time, and the
chief informed them that this was the
last time, as a repetition of the peace
disturbing rows would result in their
being lodged in jail. These affairs are
most disagreeable to handle, and in
this case the parties have several
times in the past made calls on the
police, but the next time will be the
Last evening the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Julius M. Hall, near the Mis
souri Pacific station, was the scene of
merriment when some twenty of their
friends gathered there to spend the
evening in the enjoyment of th rare
hospitality of the Hall family. The
evening was spent in music, as well
as the playing of games of all kinds,
and these aided in making the hours
pass very pleasantly for those who
were fortunate enough to be present.
At a suitable hour a very delicious
luncheon was served, which aided in
making the occasion one of the rarest
enjoyment. The Hall home was filled
with the jolly young people until a
late hour, and the event will be very
pleasantly remembered by all, as the
hospitality afforded them was most
gracious. It was a late hour when
the party wended their way home
