From Tuesday s Daiiv.
Mothers' day was most appropri
ately observed at the Presbyterian
church Sunday, both at the Sunday
rchool and the morning services. The
pastor has been devoting five minutes
of the morning sei-vices to a sermon
for the children and on this day read
"A Boy's Poem to His Mother," which
had been written by a boy of 14 years,
which clearly denoted his love for his
mother. The choir rendered a special
r.nd appropriate anthem, which was
riven in a most pleasing manner.
Preceding the sermon Miss Mathilde
Vallery rendered a-' beautiful vocal
solo. The pastor, Rev. McClusky, de
livered an eloquent and pleasing ser
mon, his subject being "A Tribute to
Our Mothers.'' and which was listened
to with the closest of attention by the
large number in attendance. The
members of the congregation were
presented with white rose buds.

ion of Mr. Claude Meyers and is one
of the best of its kind in the business

to secure some mighty good work from
his assistants. A number of the band

is an important part of the show.

Sheiiff C. D. Quir.ton and County
Attomev- A: G. Cole were out at
Greenwood yesterday locking into a
robbery which took place there last
Saturday evening. It seems that
seme persons brcke the lock on the
beer vault of Henry Weidmaa some
time Saturday night or early Sunday
morning, and took several kegs of
beer therefrom. It has not been fully
determined just how much of the wet
good was taken, but an 'inventory is
being taken to determine the value
of the stolen property. So far it has
been impossible to locate the burglars,
but it is thought that it will be pos-
sibla to run them down and bring
them to justice.

and each guest found her particular
place at the table when she got the
letters untangled so that they spelled
her name in the proper manner. Cov

changes that has been made in the
city for some tima was consummated
today when Henry mV. Schneider pur
chased the stock.,' George E. Dovey,
president of the Firet National bank,
in this city, and -will-become interest

institution in the city. This will be
very pleasing news in that it is an
assurance that Mr. Schneider, who is
a live, wire in every way, will again
be a resident of Plattsmouth and have
an active part in the business life of
the city. 'Mr. Dovey retires from the
bank after a connection covering some
thirty-five years as the administrator
of the estate of E. G. Dovejf, his fa

which time he has served as president
of the First National. He has made
a splendid official, but with other busi

best to lay down the interests in the
bank and devote his time to his mer
cantile business.

energy and push into . thc banking

judgment will undoubtedly make a
splendid success of his new business
