Hi NO THE WEST
Relative of the Hirz Family, and
Thinks I'lattsmouth Is a Yery
I'rojressive Little Citv.
"Walter Reed Irving: of Ealtimore,
Maryland, is in town visiting at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. John Hirz and
iamily. Mr. Irving arrived in Flatts
rr.outh on Juy 2 from Chicago, where
he had spent a week with relatives.
On his arrival he went to the farm of
Henry Hirz, sr., on the Louisville
roud, and quickly adapted himself to
the gentle art of farming, and was
soon to be seen in overalls and straw
hat shocking grain and plowing corn.
This is the third visit of Mr. Irving
to Plattsmouth, the two former visits
being in October, 1911, and July and
August, 1912. While here in 1912 he
was generally known to the farmers
in this section as ''the Baltimore Kid."
He then stayed at the home:; of Henry,
John and Philip Hirz.
Mr. Irving was favorably impressed
by I'lattsmouth and Cass county. He
says that Plattsmouth is a young and
progressive city and did not seem to
le tied down by any superfluous laws.
In Baltimore, he says, they have never
repealed the oil ' blue laws," which
prohibit the sale of anything on Sun
day, and do not allow base ball to be
playfd within the city boundaries, and
that even the amateur games are un
der the ban, and even dancing and
theaters are forbidden in that city.
He stated that he was glad that
somewhere people were allowed a lit
tle freedom and that the wants of the
many were not subjected to the wishes
of the few.
When in Baltimore Mr. Irving was
employed by the Baltimore & Ohio
Railroad company in their printing
department. While he did not visit
the mechanical department of the
Journal he said that he thought it to
be an up-to-date paper and enjoyed
reading it very much. He goes to
Chicago this afternoon for a week's

JOE HUNTER IS SUFFERING
FROM ILLNESS hi HAVELOCK

by J. R. Hunter announcing the fact
that his son, Joe Hunter, was quite ill
at his home at Havelock, suffering
from an acute attack of appendicitis,
and that an operation would be neces

relief from his suffering. Mr. and
Mrs. J. R. Hunter and son, Paul, de

The many friends here of the young
man will trust that he may recover
