PRISE OF GREAT
SOMETHING THAT IS GREATLY
NEEDED AND AN IMPROVE
MENT TO THE CITY.
From Saturday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon was consum
mated a deal that will place in our city
something it has long needed and
which will be appreciated by the cit
izens a modern, up-to-date apart
ment house provided with all the com
forts and conveniences 'that modern
life can demand or suggest.
The deal was closed by the Bankers'
Realty company of Omaha with John
V. Hatt and Fred Majors for the pur
chase of the quarter lying just east of
the court house and on which the
Realty company will erect a new
apartment house costing in the neigh
borhood of from $25,000 to $30,000.
The site is one that is ideal for this
purpose and will, without doubt, find
a ready demand from the citizens of
Plattsmouth, who are facing a famine
in suitable homes to house the rapidly
increasing population of the city.
This new building will be made en
tirely of brick and be strictly up to
the minute in its equipment, and the
plans will be in the office of Mr. J. P.
Falter, the local representative of the
company, in a week in order that the
public may see them and realize that
at last we are progressing cityward,
in the building line.
There will be fourteen or sixteen
apartments in the new building, which
will be two stories in height, and each
apartment will contain from four to
six strictly modern rooms as well as
a bath, and each apartment will be en
tirely separate from the others, insur
ing the strictest privacy. The rooms
will be finished in the best possible
manner to insure beauty as well as
comfort and will make ideal homes for
the people desiring them. With, first
class janitor service and strictly mod
ern management of the building there
is no doubt that they will be grabbed
up at once as soon as completed.
The apartment house will be built in
the form of an "L" facing both on
Vine and Third streets, while in the
courtyard in the rear will be prepared
a playground forchildren as well as a
neat tennis court for the use of the
residents of the apartments and these
will be kept up in perfect shape and
add to the pleasure and comfort of
thor-e residing in the building.
This is one of the biggest building
enterprises of the year and the recog
nition by outside capital of the value
of the city as a place for the invest
ment is a well deserved recognition of
the spirit of progress that is dominat
ing the life of the community and the
confidence in the future development
cf the great advantages which Platts
mouth possesses over its neighbors.
The new building will be com
menced as soon as possible and when
the residents living in the houses on
the building site can move and make
way for the commencement of the
good work of putting up the apart

The friends and neighbors for many

from their midst and from the bosom
of her family. The services were in
charge of Rev. Robb, pastor of the
church, who spoke feelingly and ten
derly of the departed lady whose tak
ing had been so unexpected and tem
pered the bitter grief of the heart
broken husband and daughter . with
words of comfort from the teachings
of the Master.
During the srvices at the church
several of the old hymns were given
by the choir of the church composed
of B. A. Root, Albert Young, Mrs.
Charles Carroll and Miss Viola Wil
ley, that brought to the hearts of the
hearers a feeling of faith and of hope
fulness of the meeting with their loved
one in another land where the grief
of parting would not come to them.
After the service the cortege
wended its way to the cemetery where
all that was mortal of this estimable
lady was consigned to the silent tomb
to rest. The pall bearers were select
ed from the old friends and neighbors
and were W. B. Virgin, W. W. Hamil

the evening were devoted to their reg
ular weekly rehearsal of the music for
the morning service Sunday, after
which the members of the choir in
dulged in various amusements which
afforded them much pleasure and
made this evening's entertainment a
most delightful one. At a convenient
time the hostess served some dainty
and tempting refreshments, which
added materially to the evening's
pleasure. At a late hour the mem
berg of the choir dispersed, declaring
Miss Cole to be a most excellent en
tertainer. GIRLS ARE SOME SINGERS
From Saturday's Daily.
A few nights ago one of the resi
dents in the west part of the city was
aroused about 10 p. m. from his peace
ful slumbers by the sound of feminine
voices which came from the stre2t and
the parties seemed to have selected
the corner near his home for their ora
torical and vocal efforts and soon on
the evening breeze the gentle notes of
"How Dry I Am" floated, and from the
vigor of the singing the girls must
have felt that way. If the householder
had been fortunate enough to have had
a "cold one- at the house, he certainly
would have broken the drought.

WEEPING WATER NIG
GER ARRESTED FOR
From Saturday's Dally.
Willie Darius, a gentleman of Afri
can descent and claiming Weeping
Water as his. residence, was brought
in today and lodged in the county jail
to answer to th charge of having
stolen a suit case and a suit of clothes
and overcoat belonging to - Charles
Jackson and William Alden, also gen
tlemen of color, from their boarding
place in Weeping Water yesterday af
ternoon. Willie had progressed as
far as Union on making his getaway
with the "swag," but met his Water
loo there as he fell into the hands of
Constable James Wilson, who arrest
ed the man and held him until he
could be brought to the county seat to
be placed in jail. As Constable Wil
son was searching the suit case at the
Union depot, Willie made a sudden
dash for liberty and running out of
the depot door attempted to outrun
the constable, who, however, was
somewhat of a foot racer himself, and
getting in range he called to the ne
gro to halt or stand a bombardment,
and the man . wisely concluded that it
was better to be a prisoner than to
take chances of being made a target,
and halted. He was brought to this
city and turned over to Sheriff Quin
ton. From what can be learned of the
affair it seemsthat Jackson and Al
den had departed for their work when
Darius got possession of the clothes
and suil case by breaking the window
in the room and pilfering the ai tides,
making1 his getaway bofyre the loss
was discovered. Darius claims that
he purchased the suit case and con
tents of a man named Ed Madison for
?6, but his ftory does not seem to fit
ui well with the farts in the case
County Attorney A. G. Cole will file
a complaint against the man this aft
crnoon charging him with stealing the
clothes arj suit case.

RIGHT OF TAXATION
FOR THE PUBLIC
If rem Saturday's Dally.
The Commercial club and a number
of the citizens are becoming interest
ed in the proposition of haying the
city council under the .lawof the state
covering the right of municipalities
to make a levy for public amuse
ments, to create a levy this year for
the purpose of aiding the band in this
city and assist not only in maintaining
the band during the summer but also
allow them to maintain their organi
zation during the winter months
While the subscriptions from the pub
lic spirited citizens nave been very
liberal, still there is quite an amount
to raise and the sum. that cou!4 be se
cured from the cit would put the
band in nice' shape and permit of pay
ing the members something for their
services at the concerts. A number
of the ether cities of the state of this
size have adopted the plan of haying
a small -evy to assist in the good
work, and it seems as though this city
ought to be able to raise at least $600
in addition to the public subscription
to provide for public concerts and to
allow the members of the band a fair
allowance, as well "as the instructor.
