LOVELY FOR THE HOME
The success of the IIome Coming"
week in this city seems to grow
brighter each day as from all sides
comes the most flattering reports of
the awakened interest of the former
residents, who are eagerly awaiting
the time when they can once more
irather in the old home town and en
joy pleasant associations with the old
friends and neighbors as well as be
come acquainted with the younger
generation that is now assisting in
the life of the community. Chairman
Windham is quite busy arranging this
feature of the fall festival and devel
oping a great many interesting facts
that will prove very valuable in mak
ing the event a big success. It is
hoped to be able to restore the oldest
residence in the city as a part of the
program of the celebration and have
it as one of the points of interest for
the great event. This is the Mickle
wait house, that as far as can be de
termined was the first house erected
on the townsite of the city, and shel
tered the family of one of the found
ers of the citv and later the first
mayor of the then struggling frontier
settlement at the edge of the plains,
where the wild Indians held sway
who are now only a vanished memory

this feature of the fall festivities met
last evening with Chairman Windham
and perfected their organization and
will at once prepare the literature to
be used in connection with the home

The visit of the Moorc-Eddings
Stock company to this city has af
forded the opportunity of witnessing
a fine series of first-class plays, and
while here the ladies t'.nd gentlemen
of the company have felt the handi
cap of the bad weather, which has
affected the attendance at their
plays, but nevertheless they have la
bored to give the people the best in
their command, and those who have
witnessed the plays have felt well
repaid as this company is composed
of strictly ladies and gentlemen, as
well as most clever performers. This
evening the company will present as
their last appearance in this city the
drama, "Rob, Or Behind the Scenes."
This play will be one of the best
shown by the clever organization and

A FINE LOCATION FOR
A SMALL-CITY PARR
From Saturday's Dallv.
To those who have visited the plot
of ground where the old brick yard
formerly was located, on Washington
avenue, as well as the lot just west
of it, there has come a realization
that here would make an ideal loca
tion for a small park and recreation
spot for the residents of the west and
north part of the city, and its loca
tion makes it a central point for al
most everyone in the city and it could
at very little expense be made in a
most acceptable place for a park.
The tract of land is of gQod size
for a park and is quite scenic, with
several small knolls scattered through
it that could be beautified, and al
ready has a good start of grass that,
with a little cultivation, shoald make
a splendid appearing greensward. A
few trees could be set out in the place
that would add to the general beauty
of the place and assist ami make it a
comfortable spot for the young and
The north and south side.-; of the
city have small parks and it is time
that the west side had a recreation
sport of this kind, and one more cen
trally located could not possibly be
secured and it being located on one
of the principal avenues of the city
it would make a great addition to the
appearance of that section of the city.

FINE ATHLETIC EXHI
BITION AT K, S, HALL
Yrsfcerdav afternon a most pleasing
athletic exhibition was given at the !
K. S. hall on West Locust street that
was attended by quite a large num
ber to enjoy the drills and exercises
which were put on by the turners
representing the K. S. organizations
of Omaha, South Omaha and Platts
mouth. The men's turning classes
from the metropolis were on hand
and put on a very pleasing exhibition
with their exercises, both on the
apparatus and in the different drills,
while the girls' gymnastic class of
the local society put on a number of
most pleasing drills that demon
strated their skill in this line of work
and won the hearty approval of all
who were fortunate enough to be
present. The girls' teams of Omaha
and South Omaha failed to catch the
train to reach this city in time to
take part in the exercises of the
occasion, but the teams from that city
which were here put on some very
interesting as well as difficult work
and won much applause from the
auditors. The close of the afternoon
was spent in dancing and the enjoy
ment of a fine social time that was
indulged in by a large crowd. The
Plattsmouth orchestra furnished the
music for the occasion..
ONE OF THE VERY
EARLY PIONEERS OF
While in the city Saturday, in con
versation with D, A. Young, one of
the old residents of the county, we
learned a few facts of much interest
as to the early history of Cass county
and Plattsmouth. The father of Mr.
Young, William Young, came to Cass
county in 1854 and pre-empted the
farm that is still in the possession of
the Young family, and where W. R.
Young, a grandson of the original
possessor, is now engaged in farm
ing. At the time the Young family
came to Cass county Plattsmouth was
only a sparcely settled community,
with five or six families and a few
log buildings that served as stores
and trading posts. Mr. Young relates
that his father told of seeing the wild
prairie hay cut and stacked where
Main street in Plattsmouth was later
laid out, and as the settlers arrived
the town was laid out. The Young
family were residing at Glenwood
when the husband and father decided
to locate in the new territory of
Nebraska and it was near tho Iowa
city that D. A. Young was'born, and
in 1855 the family removed to this
side of the river and settled on the
place they still own and farm. The
first house erected there was of logs
and for many years sheltered the sons
and daughters of Squire William
Young until they grew to manhood
and womanhood. This log house later
was torn down and reconstructed, and
still stands in the yard at the old
home with the great logs defying the
ravages of time and is an object of
great interest to all who have seen
it as one of the earliest homes in the

The many friends in the county of

pleased to learn that they are now j
the proud and happy parents of a fine

In a lecture at one of the Des

from India told of going into the in
terior of India, where he was taken
sick, that he had a bottle of Cham

Remedy with him and believed that
it saved his life. This remedy is uscdl
successfully in India both as a pre
ventive and cure for cholera. 1 ou

country. Obtainable everywhere.

There is no better time than" this to stop and think
of the advantages of "shopping at home" in Platts
mouth. With all markets upset, merchandise scarce
and many colors not fast, there js necessity of sub
stitution in many stores.
But when you "buy at home you are among friends
and the quality of all merchandise is guaranteed and
all claims are quickly adjusted. Because of this per
sonal, year in, and year out contact with our trade we
refused to buy inferior qualities and colors when we
selected our stocks, and you'll find that here all mer
chandise is of the kind that is trustworthy in the broad
est sense of the word. Plattsmouth and this store is
particularly thisear your safest place to trade.

MENT WITNESSED BY
HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE
From Friday's Dally.
Last evening Artilla, the "dare
devil," furnished a great entertain
ment for a large crowd of people on
Main street when he performed his
famous feat as "the human fly" by
climbing up the front of the Bank of
Cass county building, as well as the
First National bank building. This
young man uses no ropes or ladders
in his work, but scales up the sides
of the buildings with only the use of
his hands and feet, and certainly is
remarkably clever in this line. He
docs the work rapidly and one has
scarcely time to realize the feat is
being carried out until he is on top
of the building. He not only climbed
up the First National building, but
also ascended the flag stsff on top of
the building, and did several stunts
for the entertainment of the crowd.
Artilla will return to this city,
probably on Saturday, June 24, when
he will climb up the side of the Cass
county. court house, and this will be
well worth seeing as the 'building is
of a style that is quite difficult to
scale and the "human fly" will give a
great thrilling exhibition.

SURVEYING FOR THE
NEW APARTMENT HOUSE
The surveyors were in the city yes
terday, surveying for the new apart
ment house which the (Bankers Realty
company of Omaha will soon com
mence the erection of in this city. The
new apartment house will be a beauty
and built along strictly modern lines
as can be found in any similar build
ing in the larger cities. It will stand
on the lots at the. corner of Third and
Vine streets and will cost in the
neighborhood of $25,000 when it it;
completed and ready for occupancy.
People are learning that a little
forethought often saves them a big
expense. Here is an instance: E. W.

we commenced keeping house years
