"THE SECRETARY OF
AT THE AIR DOME
The Mutual masterpiece which will
be presented this evening at the Air
Dome will be one that is certain to
please the most exacting movie fan
over, as it is one of the most interest
ing society dramas placed on the
screens by the Mutual company, and
its title, "The Secretary of Frivolous
Affairs," point to its protrayal of the
modern American high society, while
interwoven with it is a most entranc
ing mystery story. May Allison and
Harold Lockwood are the stars of the
production. The story of the play, in
brief, is as follows:
Upon the death of their father,
Loulie and Josephine learn that in
stead of being wealthy heiresses, they
are practically penniless. Fortunate
ly, Loulie secures the position of sec
retary to rich Mrs. Hazard, becomes a
great social favorite, and the latter's
son, Hap., falls in love with her. One
evening, while dancing with the Due
de Trouville, Natalie, with whom Hap
has been infatuated, loses an emerald
bracelet, and accuses Loulie of being
the thief. Then follows a series of
jewel thefts and Winthrop, a young
author, in love with Hap's sister,
Laura, is arrested. One night Loulie,
suddenly awakened, discovers thieves
at work, whereupon she is seized,
bound and taken to a lonely cabin. The
household is awakened and a search
begins. Hap, who has been knocked
unconscious by one of the thieves, re
vives and joins in the pursuit. In the
meantime Loulie has escaped from
the cabin, later falling unconscious
upon the beach, where she is found by
Hap. At the Hazard home the duke,
who is discovered in the act of steal
ing valuable pictures from the gallery,
and Mrs. Cutler, another one f the
guests, turn out to be the jewel
thieves and are brought to justice.
Naturally, this stirring climax is fol
lowed by exquisite love scenes, in
which Hap, Loulie, the exonerated
Winthrop and Laura are the prin
W. F. Truelsen, wife and little son
of Omaha were here over Sunday
visiting at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
C. M. Parker, and other relatives and

YOUNG MEN'S SHOES!

This morning shortly before noon
"Dad" Childers, who resides near the
Platte river, just above Oreapolis,
made the discovery of the body of a
floater about a mile west of the rail
load bridge in the Platte river.
The body was that of a man well
advanced in years and as far as could
be learned at noon there were no
marks of identification on the body,
and to judge from the appearance of
the corpse it was a man some 45 to
T0 years of age, but it had been in
the water some time and the
identification was very hard. There is
a possibility that the body is that of
C. S. Wortman, who disappeared two
weeks ago from the home of his
daughter in Ashland, and of whom
there has been no trace found.
As soon as he was notified Sheriff
Quinton departed for the scene to take
charge of the body and to discover, if
possible, some clue that might settle
the question of whether or not it was
the body of Mr. Wortman. The body
was landed on the island in the Platte
about a mile above the bridges by Mr.
Childers to await the arrival of the
sheriff and county coroner to take
charge of the remains.
FISHING PARTY TO
GEDAR GREEK BACK;
REPORT GOOD TIME
-Fetzer Shoe Go.-
The fishing party which has been at
Cedar Creek for a few days enjoying
outdoor life and the pleasures of try
ing to snare the finny tribe, yesterday
broke camp and returned home to this
city with a good record of the num
ber of fish landed during their stay in
the vicinity of Cedar Creek. The
party was composed of John Kirkham,
Albert Kheinackle, Frank McCarthy
and Will Mason, and were reinforced
on Saturday by Gus Swanson, who
arrived to assist in the sport. Many
exciting stories are related of the do
ings in the camp that afforded not a
little pleasure to the party. The resi
dents in the vicinity where the party
camped were entertained very much
by the singing of the quartet, which
was one of the successes of the trip,
and much heretofore unknown musical
talent in the members of the party
was developed during the time they
were in camp. Mr. McCarthy return
ed home Saturday evening, white the
rest of the boys remained until yes
terday to secure as many fish as possible.
