M. P. Meisinger of Madison, Neb.,
arrived in Plattsmouth last Saturday
evening to attend the funeral of the
12-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto
Sprieck, which was held Sunday after
noon at the Wairadt church and inter
ment was made in the Wairadt ceme
tery, the services being conducted by
Rev. Schwartz. There were others
from that locality who came on the
same sad mission, being G. Sprieck,
Mr. and Mrs. Julius Sprieck and Mr.
and Mrs.-Ed Sprieck, all from and
near Stanton, Neb. They all returned
home the-fore part of the week. Mr.
Meisinger spent' a few hours visiting
with friends and relative.-? in and near
Plattsmouth, being a guest at the
home of his parents in this city. Owing
to his suffering with a seige of the
grippe .most . of the winter, he was
not feeling well, and was compelled
to return home Tuesday.
Degree of Ilonor, Notice!
The Degree of Honor lodge will
meet in regular' session tomorrow
(Thursday) evening at 8 o'clock at
their lodge rooms. All members are
requested to be present, and the cap
tains of the team especially urge the
members of the team to be present;
An extensive improvement which
will be received with great pleasure
by the residents of this city as a token
of the material prosperity of the city
imd one of its leading industries, has
just been commenced by A. L. Tidd
Mr. Tidd is starting the remodeling
of his three-story building at the cor
ner of Third and Main streets and
will place it in the best of shape for
the use of the Olson Photograph com
pany, which company occupies the two
upper floors of the building.
Mr. Tidd's improvements will con
sist in the entire remodeling of the
first floor of the structure, which will
make it one that will be ideal for the
purpose which it is intended. One of
the chief changes made in the build
ing will be the placing of a modern
plate glass front in the building. The
new front will have the entry way in
the center of the building with large
plate glass windows on either side of
the entry way and the upper portion
of the front will be equipped with
prism glass which will aid in the giv
ing of better light into the room. On
the west of the building a large plate
glass window will also be placed which
will aid in the better lighting facilities
tnd make the room ery bright and
attractive. The old floor has been
taken up and a new one will be put
down, which will fill a long-felt want
and make the building one that will
be as neat as any in the city. The
room will be entirely replastered ami
decorated to aid in the good work of
improvement and when completed will
make the building of Mr. Tidd's one
of the best in the city.
This room will be occupied as soon
as completed by the oilices of the
Olson company, as well as the adver
tising and mailing departments of the
company, which in the past two years
has grown to a great extent and which
now is in touch with almost 70.000
persons constantly, having grown in
the last three years from a mailing
ist of a few hundred.
The fact that this building, for
years so badly neglected, is to bo put
in first-class condition is a source of
gratification and pride to the people
of Plattsmouth and they are also well
pleased to learn that the business of
the Olson companj' has so expanded
as to demand a further increase in
the room of the concern, which will
have complete use of the entire three
floors of the Tidd building.
Those who have believed that a
home enterprise cannot succeed have
only to review the history of the
Olson company to realize what pos
sibilities exist where push and energy
are put into the work, and it is safe
to predict that this concern will grow
a great deal more in the coming year
than it has in the past.

The New BUICK is Here!
We are now in a position to show you the New Buick Model D-6-45, which has been the one real sensation in the
automobile world since January first.
COME IN AND SEE IT
See for yourself how really wonderful this model is, with its six cylinder Buick valve-in-head motor; its Buick
cantilever springs; its cellular radiator; its silk mohair one-man top; its genuine leather upholstering; its new style elec
tric headlamps, and many other superiorities as compared with other cars.
With its crown fenders and 34x4 inch wheels and tires, this model is truly the superior of any car in its class,
and the equal of any car in any class in appearance and performance.
PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW
Thousands were disappointed last fall by not being able to get a Buick, and the demand for early spring delivery
i5 even now greater than experienced last fall. Make sure of your Buick before it is too late. We are now in posi
tion to make deliveries.
