INSTITUTE IS A
A Very Large Attendance at Public
Reception Tendered Teachers
lining the manner in which the teach
ing of this branch has been developed
at the Crete schools.
COMING DOWN FROM
OMAHA WITH SPE
CIAL TRAIN FRIDAY
The Cass County Teachers' institute
is now started in splendid shape, and
each and every one of the 156 teach
ers in attendanse is receiving the
benefits of the splendid program pre
pared for them by the county superin
tendent, Miss Eda Marquardt, and
which embraces lectures from a num
ber of the leading educators and in
structors of this part of the west.
Prof. G. W. Brown of the Peru Nor
mal school is one of the most inter
esting of the lecturers, and his ad
dress on rural sociology at the after
noon period of the institute was cer
tainly one that appeals to the teachers
to the fullest extent and from which
they can gather a great deal of use
ful information as to the handling of
the rural school problems. Superin
tendent Brooks and Miss Marie Kauf
mann are also on the list of instruc
tors for the institute, and their emi
nently successful work in the city
schools here allows them to give to
the teachers of the country the benefit
of their work. Mr. Brooks, who has
received a thorough course at Colum
bia university in New York City, in
the teachers' special training, is one
that is thoroughly competent to deal
with the problems of the teacher.
Miss Kaufmann is one of the ablest
instructors in penmanship in the state
and her success in this line has made
her a most enviable reputation for
the advancement of this line of study.
Each and every one of the teachers is
showing a very wholesome interest in
the work of the institute that is very
gratifying to the county superintendent.
At the afternoon session yesterday,
Miss Claire Bookmeyer of the Platts
mouth schools, told of the conserva
tion of bird life by the school children
and the splendid success that had
been secured here by the adoption into
the public schools of the Audubon
teachings of the saving of bird life.
Last evening the public reception
for the visiting teachers was held at
the beautiful Elks' club on North Sixth
street, and a large number availed
themselves of the opportunity to meet
the charming young ladies who are
training the boys and girls of the
county to become better acquainted.
During the evening a very charming
and delightful program was given,
consisting of two solos by Mr. L. O
Minor and Mrs. John W. Falter, both
of which were thoroughly enjoyed and
very much appreciated by the de
lighted auditors. Mrs. E. II. Wescott
and Miss Hazel Tuey in a duet, the
"Barcarole" from "Tales of Hoffman"
proved a rare treat to the music lov
ers. Mr. Richard Avard gave a very
pleasing clarinet solo during the even
ing that was also very much enjoyed
During the reception delicious punch
and wafers were served, that added
very much to the pleasures of the oc
casion and made the evening one of
of the most thorough enjoyment to
all in attendance.
This morning at the esssion of the
teachers in the high school building,
Dr. Hayman of Lincoln lectured on
"The Conservation of Vision," and at
the afternoon session today. Miss El
sie Gapen gave a short talk on "The
Crete Plan of Domestic Science," out-
Former Plattsmouth people now re
siding in Omaha will be here in force
on Friday, when "Home Coming" day
will be celebrated in a royal manner
in this city, and the visitors from the
metropolis will have a special train
from that city. The committee in
charge of the big excursion from the
big city is composed of Henry R. Ger
ing, C. H. Taylor, W. B. Elster, V. C.
Ramsey and Gerald M. Drew. Among
those of the former Plattsmouth resi
dents who will make the trip will be
Byron Clark, solicitor of the Burling
ton railroad; General Manager G. W.
Holdrege of the Burlington, Hon.
Francis E. White, grand secretary of
the Masons of Nebraska, and Hon.
Jesse L. Root.
The special train will leave Omaha
at 9:15 Friday morning, and the com
mittee will be at the station to see
that every one of the home-comers is
properly badged and ticketed for the
big show at Plattsmouth, and the oc
casion is one that will bring back
many a pleasant memory to those
who still hold Plattsmouth dear as
"home" although they are located
elsewhere. The Omaha delegation will
be swelled by a large number from
Lincoln and other towns, all bound
for the old town by the river to spend
On their arrival here the visitors
will take part in the special program
that is to be made a part of the day's
entertainment, and it can be set down
right now that the Omaha boosters
will see that it is a red letter occasion
in the fall festival.

PROF. E. L. ROUSE
OF PERU NORMAL
HERE ON FRIDAY
Former citv superintendent E. L.
Hnusp. now of the Peru normal school
will be at the Home Coming and school
reunion on Friday, as the folllowing
letter received by County Superinten
dent Marquardt will show:
"p'all City, August 6,VJio.
"Miss Eda Marquardt:
"I have had many invitations to ue
with my old pupils and friends at the.
sfh ool nhase of the "Home Coming
time. Sorrowfully I have written
each that an institute engagement
would not permit it. When I found
yesterday that Prof. Brown was to
be with you I thought, "Why toumn i
we swap work." I spoke to him. He
is willing and thinks it a good move.
I laid the matter before Supt. Weber
this morning. He most heartily ap
proves. Now are you willing to grant
this favor to your old friend who is
so anxious to mingle with the boys
and girls of other days? .
"I promise you I'll jret on my toes'
and give you the best speeches I ever
made, as many as Brown is down for
Friday, I will pay all the extra ex
pense we are both too in the change.
Trusting you can see your way to do
this I am your friend,
"E. L. ROUSE."
The ofFer of Mr. Rouse has been ac
cepted and he will be on deck Friday
to join in the sckool picnic.

Another automobile tragedy has
been visited upon Cass county, and as
a result Hugh Spanhle, a prominent
resident of near Eagle, is dead, while
his wife and daughter, Lola, are in a
very serious condition as the result
of the injuries they received. The ac
cident occurred at the crossing near
rthe Missouri Pacific depot at Eagle
at 7:15 yesterday morning, when the
westbound passenger train for Lin
coln crashed into the car of Mr.
Spanhle and resulted in the death of
this gentleman. Mr. Spanhle was
driving the car at the time of the
acident and was thrown thirty feet by
the force of the compact, ami when
picked up was in a dying condition,
but was huried to Lincoln on a special
train and taken to the St. Elizabeth
hospital, but died before reaching
there. The wife and daughter were
not thrown from the car, which was
pushed by the locomotive some 150
feet down the track, but was not
overturned, and the fact that the
ladies were in the rear seat of the
car accounts for their being saved
from instant death, as the locomotive
struck the Ford car about half way
and demolished the front of the ma
chine. The ladies are both suffering
very much from the shock of the ac
cident and are in serious condition.
It is thought that a box car stand
ing on the siding shut off the view of
the driver of the car of the oncoming
train which was coasting into the sta
tion, the engineer having shut off
steam, and this accounts for the sav
ing of any of the members of the
The Spanhle family reside three
miles southeast of Eagle.
