Card of Thanks.
We, the undersigned, wish to thank

ly w iih to thank the B. P. O. E. and

Last evening Mrs. Washington
Smith, for many years a resident of
this city, passed away very suddenly
at the home of her daughter, Mrs.
William Cooledge, at Rosolie, Nebras
ka, where she had been making her
home for the past few months. Mrs.
Smith had been in very poor health for
the past few years, having been a suf
ferer from heart trouble, and death
came very suddenly to her. The mes
sage conveying the sad news did not
give the cause of her death, but it is
thought to have resulted from an at
tack of heart trouble. It is with the
deepest of regret that the many
friends of this estimable lady will
learn of her death, and her passing
will be most sincerely mourned, as
during her residence here she made
many friends by her kindly ways and
gentleness to all with whom she came
in contact. The body will be brought
here tomorrow evening on No. 14 and
the funeral held Wednesday, but the
hour cannot be set until further word
is received from the family. The body
will be laid at rest in Oak Hill ceme
tery beside that of the husband, who
preceded her in death some two years
ago. For years Mr. and Mrs. Smith
were prominent residents of this city
and among the old friends the mes
sage conveying the news of the death
of this good woman will bring a feel
ing of deepest regret. Three children,
Mrs. William Cooledge of Rosolie, Ne
braska; Mrs. Scott of Central City,
and Glenn W. Smith of Omaha, are
left to mourn her death.

This morning Sheriff Quinton de
parted for Lincoln, taking with him
John Fowler, who will enter upon a
sentence of from one to fifteen years
for forgery, having pled guilty to the
charge of forging a check which was
passed on the bank at Greenwood.
Fowler is well advanced in years and
seems rather feeble, as well as" men
tally weak, and having spent many
years in prison seemed to welcome the
fact that he was soon to take up his
qaurters at the state prison, having
known no other home for years.

GEORGE H. BECKER SUFFER
ING FROM PNEUMONIA
The many friends of George W
Becker will regret greatly to learn
that he is confined to his home suffer
ing from a very serious attack of
pneumonia with which he was stricken
Saturday evening. Mr. Becker has not
been feeling the best for the past few
days and Saturday evening he became
so ill that it was necessary to summon
the assistance of a physician to look
after him, and it was discovered that
he was suffering from pneumonia. The
condition of the sick man is quite
serious and a trained nurse is in at
tendance upon him. It is to be hoped
that George will be able to withstand
the malady and soon be with his
friends again as usual.
The Nebraska Public Library com
mission have recently added some Ger
man traveling libraries to their col
lection, which through the courtesy of
Aliss Templeton, secretary of the com
mission, and well known in this city,
because of her visits here in library
work, the Plattsmouth library has
been able to secure one. This collec
tion is composed of thirty-five volumes
and may be kept' in the library for
three months. All residents of the city
are entitled to the free use of these
books under the same rules as the gen
eral library laws. It is hoped by the
librarian that the many Germans in
this city will take advantage of this
opportunity. The following is the list

AT THE MASONIC
Yesterday afternoon was a most
pleasant occasion at the Masonic
Home and the service conducted for
the benefit of the aged members of
the family at the Home will be most
pleasantly remembered by them. It
being the Sunday that Rev. II. G.
McClusky of the Presbyterian church
was to officiate, he secured to assist
him in the service the members of the
Platt.mouth male quartet, Messers
E. A. McElwain, Herman Hough,
Bert Knorr and himself and this or
ganization of talented vocalists added
very much to the interest and pleas
ure of the occasion. Rev. McClusky
conducted the religious service for the
benefit of the aged people and was
assisted by the quartet with a numb
er of fine selections and the quartet
made such an impression with the
residents of the home that they were
compelled to give an afternoon of
song. The quartet used the songs
which were so popular during the
Sunday campaign in Omaha and from
the inspiring strains of "Brighten the
Corner" they were asked to give
others of those songs and it was not
until i o'clock that the members of
the quartet were alowed to close their
program of song. This quartet has
been practicing together for only a
short time but has some of the finest
voices of the city in its organization
and their appearance at any public
gathering is always the source of the
greatest of pleasure and to the old
folks at the Masonic Home their visit
was a rare treat and it was certainly
a most commendable action of the gen
tlemen composing the quartet in giv
ing this pleasant afternoon entertain
ment to those who are largely shut out
from participation in the active life
of the world through their feebleness
and the occasion will be foundly re
membered by every member of the
family at the Home.
