MRS. LOUISE KIS-
SLING PASSED AWAY
Yesterday, at her home in this
city where for the past thirty-one
years she has spent many years of
happiness, Mrs. Louis Kissling passed
away after an illness ot some dura
tion, suffering from a complication of
sickness which all the care and atten
tion of her family and " attending
physicians were unable to check and
the patient bore with patience and
Christian fortitude her suffering,
awaiting the voice of the Master that
would bring her release from suffer
ing and rest from the cares and trou
bles which mark this world. Mrs.
Kissling was held in the highest es
teem by those who knew her best and
her life was devcted to the care and
rearing of her family and to the home
where she will be so greatly missed
from the family circle.
Mrs. Kissling was born in Germany
December 15. 1856, and there spent
her years of girlhood amid the scenes
of the old home. In 1885 she came to
America to make her future home in
the United States, and located at
lattsmouth, where in March, 1885,
she was united in marriage, and dur
ing these years these two estimable
people have spent a perfect and happy
wedded life. Six children are left
with the bereaved husband to mourn
the death of this good woman, Mrs.
Louise Granger, Alliance; Louis Kiss
ling, jr., Fred Kissling, Mrs. Carrie
Bonahaver, and Misses Minnie and
Nettie Kissling, all of this city.
During her life time Mrs. Kissling
was a uevotea member oi the uerman
Evangelical church and with her hus
band was among those that assisted
in the work of making possible the
erection of the beautiful St. Paul's
church in this city, where they have
been constant attendants and faithful
Of a quiet and unassuming nature,
the departed lady has won many
friends by her life devoted to the
home and those she loved best, and in
the years to come the memory of the
mother will live with the family and
friends as an example of a sturdy
Christian faith and a useful life.
The funeral will be held Wednesday
afternoon at 2 o'clock from the St.
Now in Omaha Hospital.
Albert Knee, a former Plattsmouth
boy, was in the city yesterday for a
short visit with his old friends for the
first time in twenty-eight years. Mr.
Knee is now located in Detroit and
was called west by the illness of his
mother, Mrs. A. II. Knee, who is at
the Methodist hospital in Omaha tak
ing treatment, and he reports that his
mother is doing nicely and it is hoped
that she will soon be on the highway
to recovery. Mr. Knee notes the
many changes made here since he was
here last and the general spirit of im
provement. Read the want ads ia the Journal.
DEATH OF WIL
LIAM TIGHE NEAR BAN
The Deceased Was a Former Citizen
of Cass County and Was Sheriff
For Four Years.
William Tighe, one of the pioneer
residents of the county and for a
great many years one of the promi
nent democratic leaders of this sec
tion of the state, passed away Sunday
at his home near Bancroft, Nebraska
Mr. Tighe, although well advanced in
years, was apparently in the best of
health up to the time of his death and
his death came very suddenly. On
Sunday Mr. Tigho had walked to the
home of his son, Thomas Tighe, and
on arriving there had complained of
being tired. He sat down to rest and
expired before medical aid could reach
William Tighe was born in Ontario,
Canada, March 31, 1840, and resided
there until he reached twenty-eight
years of age and then removed to
Cass county, Nebraska, where he re
sided for a great many years until
his removal to Bancroft in 1899. Mr,
Tighe while residing in this county
made his home on a farm a few miles
east of Manley, where the Tighe fam
ily has been very prominent for the
last fifty years in the life of the com
munity and has been numbered among
the leading families of the county and
active in the public life of this coun
ty to a great extent. In 1889 Mr.
Tighe was elected to the office of sher
iff of Cass county and served in that
capacity for two years with great
credit to himself and the citizens of
the county. In 1899 Mr. Tighe pur
chased a large farm southeast of
Bancroft and has since made his home
there with his family and has taken'
an active part in the public affairs of
that section. Besides his widow, three
sons, John O., Thomas J. and Edward
r., and two daughters, Mrs. S. Mose
ey of Allamoosa, Colo., and Mrs. E.
Peterson of Lyons, survive him. John
Tighe of Manley and Joseph Tighe of
lavelock, two brothers, are also left
to mourn the death of Mr. Tighe.
The funeral of Mr. Tighe was held
this morning at 10 o'clock at the
Catholic church at Bancroft, the mass
being celebrated by Rev. Father
O'Donohue, rector of the church.
OFF OF A CORN
From Wednesdays Dally.
Yesterday afternoon A. C. Tulene,
who is engaged in farming in the west
part of the city had occasion to visit
a tract of land where he had been en
gaged a few days before in cutting
stalks and discovered that some party
had visited the place and removed the
wheels from the stalk cutter which he
had left setting in the field when he
quit work. He at once started in to
investigate the matter and recalled
that while driving home he had passed
team and wagon and in the box of
the wagon was a number of wheels
which answered the description of
those which had formerly adorned his
stalk cutter. Mr. Tulene came to
town and getting in touch with Sheriff
Quinton and Chief Barclay, these gen
tlemen proceeded to start in to dis
cover where, the missing wheels had
been taken, with the result that they
were discovered in a pile of junk, hav
ing been sold by the party taking
them. The matter was then placed in
the hands of the county attorney and
it is thought that the gentleman who
purloined the wheels will be given a
chance to explain the matter to the
authorities. While the value of the
wheels was not great they were of a
type which is not greatly used now
and it would have been hard for the
owner of the stalk cutter to replace
them and he feels very fortunate in
getting them back.
Mr. and Mrs. Augugst C. Pautsch
and Miss Lydia Pautsch, daughter of
Ernest Pautsch, of the vicinity of
Manley, were visitors in this city to
day, attending to various business
matters and visiting county seat
friends. They were pleasant callers
at this office.
John A. Maguire in Town.
Former Congressman John A Ma
guire of Lincoln, was. in the city to
day visiting with his political friends
snd looking over the situation, prior
to the primaries. Mr. Maguire is a
candidate for re-nomination to con
gress on the democratic ticket and is
preparing to make a thorough canvass
of the district to land the nomination.
While here Mr. Maguire called at the
Journal and states that he is standing
strictly on his own record made dur
ing the three terms he represented
the first district at Washington and
is a staunch supporter of the policies
of President Wilson, from start to
FUNERAL OF THE
LATE MARVIN EDWARD
The funeral of the late Marvin Ed
ward Tyler was held yesterday after
noon from the home of his parents on
West Rock street and was attended
by a large number of the old friends
and neighbors who gathered to pay
their tribute of respect to the highly
esteemed gentleman who had been
called away while yet in the first
flush of manhood. The services at
the home were in charge of Rev. C. E.
PerLee of the Christian church, who
spoke words of comfort to the sorrow
ing relatives and friends while a choir
from that church gave a number of
the old well loved hymns. At the
grave the members of Evergreen
comp, Woodmen of the World, held
their ritual services as the body of
their well beloved brother was con
signed to his last earthly resting
place. Mr. Tyler, to those who knew
him best, was held in the highest es
teem, and his death was universally
regretted both in this city ana-"iif
Omaha, where he had resided for the
past few years, and especially was he
held in the highest personal regard by
the members of the W. O. W., of
which he was a member, belonging to
the Omaha camp of that order and
was insured in that order for $2,000.
The body of the young man was laid
to rest in Oak Hill cemetery in the
family lot there.
BALL GAMES PLAYED
The last game in the series of
games in the city basket ball league
last evening drew out a large and en
thusiastic crowd to root for their fa
vorites in the fray. In the opening
game there was considerable delay
due to the fact that Arthur White,
who had played on the Methodist
team on last Tuesday was placed on
the lineup of the Christian church and
this was objected to by the Cosmopol
itans and a conference of the man
agers of the different teams decided
that he was ineligible but the follow
ers of the Christians refused to take
him out and the game proceeded de
spite the ruling of the officials. The
contest was one full of more than the
sual roughness and several of the
players were bunged up, particularly
Neal of the Cosmos, who received a
rather bad bruise on the head as the
result of having his head banged on
the floor by one of the Christians and
also received a severe gash over the
left eye when he was thrown into the
iron pipes by one of his opponents.
The star of the contest was Noble,
who secured the greater part of the
scores for the Cosmos, and was ably
assisted by Beal and Edwards in this
ine. For the Christians, Howe was
the main feature and was able to
carry off the bacon for the religious
representatives by a score of 23 to 15.
This game with that which follows
leaves the Cosmopolitans and the
Presbyterians tied for first place and
the Methodists and Christians for the
cellar as they have only won one
game apiece while the leaders each
have two victories to their credit.
In the second game the Presbyte
rians were able to get away with the
grapes by the score of 30 to 15 in a
spirited contest which was a reminder
of the days of the Roman gladiators
For the. Presbyterians Frank Marshall
nnd Larson were the stars of the
THOMAS J, PENCE
DIES AT CAPITAL
Was Secretary of Democratic Com
mittee and a Cloe Friend of
Washingtson, March 28. Thomas
J. Pence, secretary of the democratic
committee, who had been ill for sev
eral months as a result of pneumonia,
died at his home here early Monday
Mr. Pence probably had an exten
sive acquaintance among democratic
politicians throughout the country as
any man who ever occupied an official
position with the national committee
He was one cf the "original Wilson
men" and after the last election was
offered several important government
poses. He declined them all, however
and became assistant to the chairman
of the national committee in charge
of the permanent headquarters here.
At the meeting of the national com
mittee here last December Mr. Pence
was chosen its secretary.
Mr. Pence was a friend of President
Wilson and was the daily companion
cf the president's secretary, J. P.
Tumulty, and cf several prominent
administration senators. For many
years he was Washington correspon
dent of the Raleigh, N. C, News and
Observer, which is owned by Secre
tary Daniels of the navy department.
Because of Mr. Pence's protracted
illner-s, W. II. Hollister, secretary of
Senator Stone, recently was appointed
assistant secretary of the national
committee and was designated by Mr.
Pence as acting secretary.

- KOTTER SURPRISED
ON HER BIRTHDAY
From Wednesday's Dally.
Last evening there was a rousing
surprise party given on Miss Elsie

Miss Elsie when returning home and
entering a darkened room which be
ing suddenly lighted showed the room
filled with a jolly crowd of her friends.
The evening was carefully planned

uncheon was served at 11:30 o'clock
in a most charming manner by Mrs.
Tiekotter, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Stan-
ey, who were abl yassisted by Mrs.
The most pleasing feature of the
evening was when the happy throng
had all assembled at the table which
was lighted only by the golden flicker
ing lights of the thirteen candles that
guarded the precious birthday cake.
It was thus that the toast was given
for the hostess in elegant and inspir
ing language that hell in eager sus
pense until closed.
When the luncheon was over the
candles burned low throwing dancing
shadows that could only be surpassed
by the merry chatter and laughter
that filled the room.

be treasured in the years to come as
tokens from the friends of years gone
by. During the afternoon Mrs. E. F.
Setz gave a number of most pleasing
musical numbers which were most
thoroughly enjoyed by the members of
the jolly party, but by far the most
exciting feature of the afternoon was
the mock wedding which the ladies
gave for the benefit of the bride-to
te. Ihe role or groom was taken oy
Mrs. William Hale, while Mrs. Albert
Murray acted as bride and Mrs.
George Stone as the mother of the

bearer. The married ladies in the
party were requested to write out
their advice to the bride as well as
their favorite recipes, all of which
added to the pleasure of the after

NTERIOR OF THOMAS
& CO.'S MARKET BE
From Wednesdays Dally.
The interior of the meat market of
George Thomas & Co. is being thor
oughly redecorated and placed in such
shape where it will be one of the most
attractive store room in the city and
one which certainly adds very much to
the appearance of the business sec
tion. The walls of the room are being
decorated in a shade of green which is
set off by the painting of the wood
work which is done .in the white
enamel to harmonize with the general
appearance of the room. This refrig
erator has a capacity of ten tons of
ice and its space for the storage of
meats is 12 by 14, making it ample
for all the uses that it may be put to.
These changes and improvements are
to be commended and add their part
to the general splendid appearance of
the business section of the city.

SEASON FULL OF
Everybody Prepare to Dres Up in a
New Suit in Spring Time When
Styles Itein Supreme.
From Wednesday's Dailr.
The spirit of th springtime with
its keen sensing of ihe rejuvenation of
life and the taking on of all iiatiiu
with its beautiful garb of newness and
freshness brings to us the full impor
tance of the "dress up" movement
which in the last two years has grown
to the extent of becoming a nation
wide institution. There is nothing
that adds to the feeling of confidence
and self-reliance in man or woman
more than does the feeling of being
dressed in a manner that command-
the respect of others. The garments
need not be of rich fabric or costly
but if neat and attractive affords man
an opportunity that otherwise would
be closed to him. The dre.ss up and
clean up time is with us and from
now until the 8th of April through
out the United States there is a de
mand for more attention being paid
to personal appearance as well as to
the appearance of property, all of
which adds very much to the welfare
of a community, however small. There
is nothing in the world that is a bet
ter advertisement of a town than a
neat, well dressed citizen, and a com
munity made up of these is one of the
greatest factors in determining the
impression of a town upon a stranger.
The movement here has been taken up
by the clothing stores and they are
offering every inducement to the man
to get busy and prepare himself for
the spring time with a freshness that
will be of benefit to him as well as to
his city. Get in the procession and
dress up and clean up.
