THE SECOND SUNDAY EVE
NING SERVICES AT THE PARK
The second of the open air Sunday
evening services at Garfield park was
held last evening and despite the
threatening weather quite a number
were in attendance to take part, but
before the services were finshed the
storm clouds caused a great many to
hurry homeward. Rev. W. S. Leete
of St. Luke's church gave a very
pleasing sermon that was thoroughly
enjoyed, but was interfered with
somewhat by the approaching storm.
The choir of St. Luke's church fur
nished a pleasing anthem for the
service, while Miss Gretchen Donnelly
rendered a very appropriate solo as a
part of the musical service.
You will find the most complete
line of stationery in the city of
Plattsmouth at the Journal office.
The finest line of box paper, visiting
and calling cards.

DEATH OF FRED M.
HESSE FROM CREAP
This morning at 2 o'clock, at his
home on south Chicago avenue, Mr.
Fred M. Hesse passed away after an
illness of almost two years from
creeping paralysis, which has for the
past six months confined him to his
home and made it necessary to assist
him in his every movement, as the
disease crept on him, and the wife
and son with loving care labored to
make his last days as peaceful as
possible, although unable to check
the malady that was to claim their
Fred M. Hesse was born in Cincin

club songs, and as they parted they

ily, and was here only a few weeks
ago en route from the Pacific coast
to his home in the east:
"Henry Pfeffer of Philadelphia, son
of a Cedar Falls pioneer, now head of
the Pfeffer Chemical company, ended

By agreement, the attorneys for
the parents of the Mustin child, about
whom the tragedy of last week cen
tered, agreed to argue the case before
Judge Sullivan, on Tuesday evening
last. Such case was argued, and the
judge, corning to the conclusion that
the case was brought before him on a
wrong presentation, ana mat .me
statutes provided for another remedy,
dismissed the case as far as the writ
of habeas corpus was concerned. The
lawyers argued the case Friday even
ing after 7 o'clock, and the judge
dismissed the case, there being a bet
ter issue in our statues under which
the case might have been brought.
Late that night, at the request of
the relatives of Mrs. Mastin, Messrs.
W. B. Schryock and Wm. Brantner,
with the mother, obtained the child
and left these parts for Kansas City,
by way of Pacific Junction. The news
soon spread, and Mr. lender, Mr. Mas
tin, the father of the child, with Mar
shal Murphy, followed across the
river and found the woman, child,
Messrs. Shryock and Brantner, at Pa
cific Junction, on Saturday morning
eaily. Of course, Shryock set up the
plea that he had only been employed
road. Later, a portion of the brains
and bowels of the bar of Plattsmouth
followed in a buggy, that is to say,
Messrs. Chapman and Pottenger, at
tornies, and after a great deal of
parleying, the woman gave up the
child to the custody of the father,
Jos. Mastin, and left, hereself, for
Kansas. All suits, claims and pro
ceedings thus far in the matter to be
abandoned. It is a sad matter at best.
We are informed that Mr. Mastin is a
quiet, peacable citizen ordinarily, and
acted in this matter about the writ, as
served by the sheriff, under a total
misapprehension of the facts. In
stating this matter last week we gave
the facts as we received them, from
the best information to be obtained.

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 somei 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 1 9 1 I to 1 1 9 in 1 9 1 5. In other words 1 5 1 factories out of 20
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 1908 to over 100,000 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.
