Hundreds of Sympathtic Friends At
tend the Last Sad Rites Over
the remains of Mr. Iliatt.
From Friday's Dally.
The Methodist church yesterday
afternoon was filled to overflowing
capacity when the residents of the
city gathered there to pay their last
token of respect to the memory of
Charles Iliutt who met his death so
tragically Wednesday afternoon. The
feeling of grief that the event had
occasioned among the many hundreds
who hail known Charley Iliatt in life
was reflected in the hundreds that
thronged the church to pay a silent
tribute to his life.
Rev. F. M. Druliner, pastor of the
church, spoke very feelingly on the
lit' of the departed friend who had
been a member of his flock and who
had been associated with the active
life of the church sinca he had united
with the faith. The pastor took as
the subject of the sermon "Character''
and pointed out the many virtues
that formed the character of a true
man or woman and in this paid a
tribute to the brother just passed on
whose life has been one that has
served to aid his fellow man and not
to harm man or woman, but to give
a cherry word wherever possible to
lighten the load of those more un
fortunate than himself.
The choir composed of Mrs. E. II.
Wescott, Miss Florence Balscr, Mrs.
B. Hayes, Mrs. Charles Jelinek,
I). C. York, W. G. Brooks, F. A.
Cloidt and Jesse Perry gave several
beautiful and appropriate numbers
during the services that served to
soften the grief of the sorrowing ones
with the thought of the blessed fu
ture which was opening for their lov
ed one as he passed from their side
into the valley of the shadow.
The services throughout were most
impressive and beautiful and filled
with a deep feeling of profound re
gret that the friend and neighbor was
taken from his home so suddenly but
it was a thought to comfort and sus
tain the members of the family that
the departed had been ready to go
and was at peace with his Maker and
firm in the faith and teaching of the
church he had accepted. The mem
bers of the Men's Bible class of which
Mr. Iliatt was a member occupied
scats at the front of the church dur
ing the funeral services and shared
with the family the grief of the loss
that had befallen them. The floral
tributes were beautiful and the tender
blooms of the lilly and rose spoke of
feeiing of regret at the death of the
well beloved friend who had been
stricken by the hand of death while
in the full enjoyment of life and
The interment was had at beautiful
Oak Hill cemetery where, as the day
was dawning to a close, the body was
laid to its last long rest.

une ot tne leatures tnat is oemg
strongiy urged by a number of the
former graduates of the Plattsmouth
High school, is that of an alumni ban
quet to be held during the "Home
Coming'' celebration in this city. This
would be an event that certainly
would be a very happy one and would
be right in keeping with the spirit of
the occasion as it would bring the
visitors who are graduates of thc-
school in close touch with their old
friends and be the means of renew
ing a great many of the friendships

The police of the city have had con-1
siderable trouble for sometime with
the young people of from ten to fif-
teen years of age loafing on the
street long after the time they should I
have been home and especially with I
several young girls who have been
down town much longer than they
really should be at night. The efforts
to look after the welfare of the young
folks who run wild on the streets,
made by the police, are not appreciat- I
ed as thev should be by either the
narents or the vountr neonle. as in
a ereat many cases when warnimr
have been heeded there has been

ents and the youngsters. It is really
nni o nn, r.r V10 rmliVino- nf fhp ritv
to have to round up the boys and
girls of this age every evening, as it
more properly lies in the province of
the parents themselves but in a num
ber of cases it is clear that there is
very little attention paid to where
the young people go or what they do
until some trouble developes as a re
sult and then a howl goes up over
the way the kids turn out. Several
times the police have been jumped on
by indignant parents for ordering
their children home late at night and
with this encouragement given it is
little wonder that there is so much
of the loafing going on late at night
on the streets.

The many Pullman friends of Mr.

shocked and grieved last Saturday
evening by the arrival of the news
that Mrs. O'Day had been killed in
an automobile accident near Kenne-
wick. Only that morning Mr. and
Mrs. O'Day with their son, Ray, had
started irom this city to spend a
long anticipated vacation in a drive
across the state to visit their eldest
son who, with his family, resides at
Port Angles. They made an early
start and had a most enjoyable ride
until within three miles of Kenne-
wick. Not being familiar with the
roads they were following another
machine bound for that city. This
machine was setting a fast pace and
suddenly made a sharp turn. Ray

not expect the turn and was unable

That advertising brings to the
minds of the public the value of the
article advertised is clearly shown by
the experience f Isy Rosenthal, the
agent for Delco lighting system that
was shown here a few weeks ago. Mr.
Rosenthal advertised his lighting
system in the weekly edition of the
Journal and as a result received a
large number of favorable responses
from the residents of Cass county,
and f() per cent of -those writing him
stated that they had saw the adver
tisement in the Journal. This shows
public is through the columns of a
newspaper and the most successful
advertiser of the county find the
same result in placing their ads in
the papers of the largest circulation
and that covers an extended field.

Last night Allen Davis, the little
two and a half-year-old-son of Mr.
and Mrs. Oscar Davis of Murray died
at the family home after suffering
for several hours most intensely from
inflamation of the stomach and
bowels. The little one was taken very
sick about 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon and despite all that could be
done to relieve his pain and suffer
ing he grew steadily worse until
death came to his relief. It is sup
posed that death was caused by the
child eating too freely of green cu
cumbers early in the day and which
caused the inflamat'on to start that
in the end cause! death.

two canes to travel with, and lLids it
very inconvenient and disagreeable,
He has also given up his work cf de

her lifetime she was very dear ind

and to enter into her reward in an
other world where suffering and grief
are never known.

mourning the loss of the fine large
St. Bernard dog that was pr?scnte
to them some time ago by T. J. O'
bnen of Omaha as a gift to little
Helen Jane West, the giandaughter o

one of the largest dogs ever brought
to this city and one of the purest
strains of the St. Bernard in the west
The dog was poisoned by someone and
was found by members of the family
lying in the yard dead. This is a very
mean trick for anyone to poison
dog and especially one of the value
of the fine animal of Mr. Dovey's
The dog had been a great favoriate
with all of the family, and especially
of the little mistress, and its loss
was keenly felt as it was a very do
cile animal and one that it was per
fectly safe for anyone to be with.
