news of the death of his uncle, Dr. E.

yesterday. The news came as a se

the message failed to reach here in

Last evening the annual congrega
tional meeting of the Firrt Presbyte
rian church was held at the. church
ouikling on Granite street and the
meeting was attended by some fifty
members of the congregation. The
report.- from the various societies and
organizations of the church were read
rnd showed that all were in the most
flourishing condition and that the
work cf the church was progressing in
all departments which was most pleas
ing to the membership. In the selec
tion or tne otlieers lor the ensuing
year to carry on the work, the follow
ing were elected: Eiders, C. A. Rawls
J. M. Roberts, James Robertson; trus
tees, D. C. Morgan, T. H. Pollock; su
perintendent of Sunday school, G. L.
Farley; assistant superintendent, R
Glenn Rawls; secretary, Miss Mar
garet Ilodgcrt; organist, Miss Blanche
Sayles; librarian, Miss Estelle Ilaird;
church treasurer, L. O. Minor. Miss
Margaret Ilodgert, who was elected as
secretary of the Sunday school, has
held this position for the past twenty
years continuously and has filled it in

there will be laid forty blocks of pav
ing this year to place their streets in
first class diapo and the conditions
there are not more favorable thr.n
here. In North Platte, a city not
much larger than ours and where the
industrial conditions are almost sim
ilar, it being a railroad shop town as
Plattsmouth is, there will be public
improvements made this year aggre
gating s5O0,O0O, and of this $100,000
is for street paving and the other im
provements include a $50,000 hotel, a
$50. C00 junior high school building,

home, and a $25,000 Catholic school
The recognition of the value of per
rnanent work or. the streets is shown
every day in the cities throughout the
country and the smaller cities and
towns are rapidly getting away from
the policy of having a lot of expen
sive work put on the streets which all
will have to be done over at a future
time, when by a little more money ex
pended tho work can be put iu to last
for all time and save al lthis leakage
of the public funds.
