Wedding of Ray Travis Announced.
From Saturday's Daily.
The following, tyken from the
Omaha News of last evening, will be
of much interest to the residents of
this city as it concerns a Plattsmouth
young man who is f.oon to be united in
matfriage to one of the popular young
ladies of Omaha:
"Mr. and Mrs. JI. N. Craig an
nounce the engagement ' of their

VON HOLLWEG IS
Chancellor Returns to Berlin From
Headquarters, Where American
Demand Is Reviewed.
CHARACTER OF REPLY IS
NOT YET REVEALED
Only Higher Officials of Empire Know
What Course Will Be Followed.
Berlin, April 23, Via Copenhagen to
London, April 24. The Imperial chan
cellor, Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg. re
turned to Berlin this afternoon, which
would seem to justify the assumption
that the empire's responsible leaders
at army headquarters have finished
consideration of the American note
and have reached the decision regard
ing Germany's reply. What this reply
will be is naturally unknown to any
but the highest officials.
The chancellor's return, it is under
stood, was not expected until Tues
day; heiK-e a general decision appears
to have beer: reached earlier than was
looked for There was no intimation
of when the reply wilt be formulated,
but there seems to be much signifi
cance in the fact that the Lokal An-
jreiger, which is consistently well in
formed, says thnt "Germany's pres
tige and rtrcngth have so increased in
the last twenty months in the eyes of
the whole world that the German gov
ernment has, indeed, only to follow
the commandments of wisdom."
Can Make tfencessions.
The obvious deduction, according to
the view here, is tint there is nothing
to prevent Germany from making cer
tain concessions if the leaders feel
that thev can properly do so.
Whether they do feci that they can
go thus far is, of course, another ques
There is unquestionably a consider-
r.ble pence party in Germany, which
includes powerful financial interest
represented by the Bourse organs and
the Frankfurter Zeilung and including
also the Berlin Tagebiatt and social
ist organs. Certain high officials also
would consent to a breach of war with
(he Unkeu States only reluctantly and
under pressure of vhit seemed to be
to them an unavoidable necessity.
It may be not without significance
that Maximilian Harden was permit
ted to pront a remarkable article in
his paper, Zukunft, defending Presi
dent Wilson's standpoint in plain
Safe Medicine for Children.
"Is it safe?" is the first question to
be considered when buying cough med
icine for children. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has long been a favor
ite with mothers of young children as
it contains no opium or other narcotic,
and may be given to a child as confi
dently as to an adult. It is pleasant
to take, too, which is great importance
when a medicine mmust be given to
young children. This remedy is most
effectual in relieving coughs, colds and
croup. Obtainable everywhere.
