Charley and William Bell, two for
mer Plattsmouth boys, now residing
at Davenport, la., came in yester
day morning to visit for a few days
here with their old friends and en
joy a short stay in the old home. The
boys are members of the team of the
Davenport Woodmen of the World
which has been taking part in the en
campment of the uniform rank at
Lake Manawa the past week. William
Bell is captain of the company and
is well pleased over the fact that his
team secured the second prize in the
competitive drill over several other
of the crack teams of Iowa and Ne
braska. There were 200 in attendance
at the encampment and the Daven
port team numbered twenty of the
fine appearing young men of that
city. The young men report their
father and mother as being in good
health and Mr. Bell has a very fine
position as foreman in the machine
shops of the Davenport Locomotive
works where Charley and Will are
both employed at present. While here
the boys are visiting at the Henry
Steinhauer home and will depart for
home in time to attend a big recep
tion that is to be given in Burling-
ton by the Woodmen of the World
lodge for the members of the prize
winning Davenport team. The friends
of the young men were certainly well
pleased to see them and to learn that
they are meeting with such success.
While here they were callers at the
Journal office to visit with the force.
A message received in this city
from Peoria, 111., announces that Mrs
Bruce Miller of that city who has
been in very poor health for the last
two years is critically ill and her re
covery is considered very doubtful.
Mrs. Miller is the daughter of Mr
and Mrs. Fred Heinrich of this city
and her relatives and friends here are
greatly shocked to learn of her ser
ious condition of health.

of Mr. and Mrs. Jennings Seivers
passed away at the home on West
Marble street. The little one has not
been strong from birth and gradual
ly faded away and was called home
to rest from suffering, to dwell in
the realms of the blessed, under the
protecting wing of the kindly Father.
The death came as a great blow to
the parents, who have devoted every
care to save their beloved little one,
but in vain. The funeral services were
held yesterday from the home con
ducted by Rev. F. M. Druliner of the
First Methodist church and the little
one was laid to rest in Oak Hill cem
etery. The deepest sympathy of
everyone in the community goes out
to the family in their hour of grief
at the loss of the beloved little one
who for a short time has been the
sunshine of the home and the idol of
the family circle. The funeral ser
vices were attended by a large num
ber of the relatives and friends to
express their feelings of sympathy
and grief at the misfortune that had
befallen their friends.
