The ofllowing taken from the
World-Herald of today will be of con
siderable interest, as it concerns the
drowning of a young man whose par
ents were for a number of years resi
Gienger, passed away a few years
dents of this city and well known to
a great many of the older residents
The father of the young man, Robert
ago, and since that time the unfor
lunate young man has had the care of
his mother, formerly Miss Agatha
Tucker, they making their home in
Frank W. Gienger, employed in the
hardware department of the Paxton-
Gallagher Co., was drowned while
swimming in the Elkhorn river near
Waterloo, Neb., about 5:30 o'clock
Tuesday evening. The body had not
been recovered at noon yesterday.
Gienger was about 21 years old. He
was the eldest son of Mrs. Agatha
Gienger, 2542 Chicago street. Other
surviving relatives are two brothers,
Charles, 10, and James, 12, and a sis
ter, Marjory, aged C. The father died
about four years ago.
He went to Elkhorn Saturday even
ing to take his vacation at the farm
of Ernest Grimm, an old friend. While
bathing in the river Tuesday even-
ng he apparently became seized with
cramps and called for help. Grimm,
who was standing on the bank at the
time, leaped into the river in the at
tempt to rescue him, but young
Gienger sank and Grimm was unable
to find him.
Coroner Crosby was notified by the
axton Gallagher Co. yesterday, and
eft for Elkhorn with full equipment
for dragging the river for the boy's
body. The young man's mother, who
was not notified of her son's tragic
death until late yesterday afternoon,
s prostrated with grief.
AGED WOMAN FOUND
LOCKED IN A HOUSE
FOR SEVERAL DAYS
FRANK IV. GIENGER
DROWNED IN ELK
This morning a rather peculiar
itory was brought to light that re
quired the services of the police and
county attorney to straighten out. As
the men engaged on the grading for
the walk on Wintersteen Hill were at
work near the residence of Mrs. Ella
luston, they saw someone at a win
dow of the house rapping on the glass
as if to attract their attention, and on
investigation it was found that an
aged woman was confined in one of
the rooms, and she made the request
that an officer be sent for, as she had
been locked in and was unable to get
out, and that she desired to be re
leased. Chief of Police Barclay was
notified and came down to the house
and by that time the men had gotten
the lady out, who stated that she was
Mrs. Nancy Hopkins, the mother of
Mrs. Huston, and had 'been confined
in the room by members of the family
against her will and desired some
thing to eat. The county attorney
was then appealed to and the aged
woman was sent out to the county
farm, where she could receive better
care, and at her own request. The
daughter, Mrs. Huston, was not at
lome at the time the mother was re
leased from her room, having gone to
Omaha, and definite action in the
matter will be postponed until her re
turn, a3 the only other persons at
home were Mrs. Hopkins and two
young, girls. The aged woman, it is
stated, has a son living on the Pacific
coast, who 13 in good financial cir
cumstances, and an effort will be made
to reach him and acquaint him with
the facts in the case. The husband of
Mrs. Hopkins was taken west about a
year ago by one of his sons to live,
and she was left with her own chil
dren by her first marriage.

EXTEND GG&DIAL IN
VITATION TO ATTEND
The Commercial club officials and
the committee on entertainment of
the club extend to the people of the
county and city a cordial invitation
to be here on Saturday next and enjoy
the program of entertainment that is
to be provided for them by the citi
zens of Plattsmouth, and the event is
one that will be of the greatest of in
terest. The new band-stand is now
ready for use and will be used Satur
day by the band to give their concert,
as it will be a great deal more con
venient than the former methods of
playing from a temporary platform of
loose boards. In addition there will
be a special free attraction offered
that will be worth seeing, and which
will be greatly appreciated by the
amusement-loving public. The rest
room in the Hotel Riley block will be
ready for use and here the ladies will
find a cozy and ocmfortable place to
rest and visit during the time they are
in the city. The invitation is to every
man, woman and child to come in and
spend the afternoon with the Platts
mouth people. The band concert will
start at 1:30 in the afternoon.
The friends of Mrs. George Dodge
will regret to learn that this estima
ble lady is confined to her home by an
illness that has not been fully de
termined upon by her physicians, but
it is desired to have her maintain
perfect quiet and rest in the hopes
that it will prove beneficial to her re
storation to health. The illness of
Mrs. Dodge will be very much regret
ted, as it removes her from her circle
of warm friends for a time at least.
We wish to make a correction with
regard to the social event at the Ma
sonic Home Monday evening, June 21,
in honor of Mrs. Bertha Hay of In
dependence, Iowa. The Journal was
misinformed regarding the social af
fair, as just a few of Mrs. Hay's
most intimate friends at the Home
gathered to do her honor. Those who
were present were: Misses Harnish,
Stapleford, Rishel, Guthmann, Riggle,
Mrs. Hay and Mrs. Carhier. .The
article in question was sent in to the
Journal and published in good faith
as to its truthfulness.

Things to Consider in Buying a Car!
SERVICE Every Overland Car sold in this vicinity since 1908
is still in service.
PRICE No car today gives as much real value for the money as
the Overland. You can satisfy yourself on this subject by comparing
specifications with competitive cars.
UP-KEEP No car was ever built that did not at some time or
other need some repair. Repairs for the Overland can be obtained
the same day as ordered, and at prices far below what other manu
facturers charge. This fact does not occur to the average buyer until
he needs some parts and finds it takes from one to three weeks to get
parts and in many cases at prices two and three times what the Over
land asks. Automobile factories have declined in numbers from
270 in 191 1 to 1 19 in 1915. In other words 151 factories out of 270
have quit making cars in the last four years, and well informed men
in the automobile business predict that the change in the next two
years will be still more startling, which means that it will be still more
difficult and still more delay on parts for cars that are not being man
ufactured at that time.
There is only one manufacturing plant in the world that produces
more cars than the Overland Company, which has increased its pro
duction from 400 cars in 1 908 to over 1 00,000 cars per year now.
If the Overland car had not given far better average satisfaction to
the buyer in the past it would not have outstripped all its competitors,
many of which were in the automobile field twice as long.
