CONCRETE ALLEY PAVING
HAS JUST BEEN COMPLETE!)
The alleyway north of Main street,
between Fifth and Sixth streets, has
had the concrete pavir.g completed,
and this is one of the most conspicuous
improvements that has happened in
recent years and one that will leave a
lasting impression upon the city. The
work is very fine-appearing and is a
wonderful change from the conditions
that prevailed there for yeirs past.
The work on the alley between Fifth
and Fourth streets will be started as
soon as possible, but will require con
siderable more time than the first
block, owing to the uneven condition
of the alleyway.
The Journal office has some paper
cup3 of various sizes, just the thing
for your nut and candy favors at your
luncheon. We also have some that

The preparations for the booster
base ball garni on Wednesday after
noon at 3 o'clock are progressing
nicely and the prospects are for a rec
ord-breaker in the way of attendance
and enthusiasm, and the committee of
the Commercial club, Dr. 1). I. Rey
nolds, II. F. Goes and Jess Warga, af
ter a canvass of the business houses
of the city, have secured pledges from
the business and professional men to
close up on this big day ami all do
their share of rooting and boosting
for the success of the day. The Avoca
team, rated as one of the best in the
county, will be on the job to oppose
the Red Sox. and are as fast an ag
gregation as can be found in the coun
ty, and some of the lastest men in .the
!::ime will be found in their lineup for
the dav. i
This occasion is one in which the
whole body of citizens f hould join in
making a touting success, as the l:i.-e j
all team have generously dt. rated
tneir services to assist in raising a
fund for the purpose of caring for the
-t room during the winter months,
d all teceipts outside of actual ex
penses of the game, will be devoted to
ho fund, and to make it as great a
uccess as possible is the effort of the
ommittee and the base ball boys.
The practically unanimous manner
in which the stores and offices are to
3 colsed up on this occasion fiom 3
to o o clock, shows the interest lhat
has been aroused, and in addition to
the worthy enterprise it is aiding, the
rame will give a great many an op
portunity to witness a good ball game
who hnve not been able to attend the
Sunday games during the past season.
he list of the business houses and
jfrices closing for the hours of the ball
game will bo published tomorrow in

THE STATE SUNDAY
SCHOOL DAY SUN
DAY, NOVEMBER 7
Governor Morehead has issued a
proclamation setting aside November
7 as a day to be observed throughout
the state as "Come to Sunday School
Day." The Nebraska State Sunday
School association is inaugurating a
campaign to get 500.000 people to at
tend Sunday school on that day, as
It has come to my knowdedge that
certain societies who have for their
object, among other things, the spec
ial study of the bible, and have in
dicated a particular day for the pur
pose of studying those portions that
would tend to promote harmony
among people and nations.
I have been requested to give em
phasis to the movement as chief ex
ecutive of the state, the day to be
known as "Nebraska get-together
Sunday School Day." Believing that
nothing other than good could come
of a conscientious study of the bible
on the general topic of peace, and to
subserve the best interests of all, I
cheerfully endorse the proposition in
setting apart Sunday, November 7.
1915, as the day when a state-wide
Sunday school be held for the pur
poses indicated, and commend it to the
attention of all churches, and people
Given under my hand" and sea of
state this 4th day of September, 1915.
JOHN II. MOREHEAD,
Rev. F. M. Druliner. pastor of the
First Methodist church of this city,
leaves tomorrow for Omaha, where he
.goes to attend the annual conference
of the Methodist church of Nebraska,
anil he takes with him the -ote and
unanimous wish of his congregation
heie that h? be ag'im given charge of
thj pastorale in this city. The serv
ice of Rev. Druliner to the church of
whkh he has been pastor has been
most valuable and his work has in
creased both the membership and the
good work of the church, as he has
brought force and a most pleasing per
sonality to ihe tliuich work that has
not been found in recent years. Rev.
Druilner and family are esteemed by
everyone, regardless of creed, and
they have been prominent in the life
of the city, and the church recogniz
ing this fact has asked that he be re
turned by the conference to this city.
From the viewpoint of the citizens
who are not members of the church,
Rev. Druliner has been one of the
most agreeable gentlemen that has
ever filled the pulpit of the Methodist
church, and since coming here from
Madison two years ago he has made
a multitude of friends, who are join
ing with his congregation in wishing
he might serve with us another year.
His exceptional brilliancy as a pulpit
oiator has caused him to be requested
at almost all gatherings and it would
indeed be a loss if he was compelled
to take up his work in another city.
Enjoys Good Dancing.
Saturday evening was the golden
opportunity for the lovers of dancing
in this city, as two social dances were
in full swing, and those who are de
votees of the oldest of the arts were
more than pleased. At the German
Home the Plattsmouth orchestra was'
the chief feature in their excellent
music, while at the T. J. Sokol hall the
Holly orchestra furnished the music.
Both dances were well attended and
everyone had a most pleasant time.
