A LOCAL LODGE
ENJOYS VISIT TO
AXumber of Local Sons of Herman
HighU- Entertained in Our Neigh
Yesterday the members of the Sons
of Herman lodge of Plattsmouth de
cided to show their fraternal spirit by
a visit to the lodge at Nebraska City,
and accordingly, several anto loads of
the members left this city at 10:30
for tiie Otoe county metropolis. The
auto ttip through the finest part of
Cass and Otoe counties was most en
joyable and the writer, who was in the
car of G. 11. Tarns, which was in the
lead, was permitted to enjoy to the
fullet the fine prospective of the land
scape, with the many fields of fine
farms stretching on either side of the
load. The coin looks as though the
u.-ual bumper crop was being secured
and all the farm homes are in fine
r-hape. and make a splendid appear
ance for the industry and prosperity
of the residents throughout the route
traveled. The roads, too. as a rule
we;e excellent, with the exception of a
small piece about two miles long south
and west of Union in Otoe county,
where the road is just about as poor
as could bf imagined, but with this
exception the load is excellent and
makes fine motoring. The Cass county
r ads are in good shape almost the
tntire distance from this city to the
Otoe county line.
The expedition., under the direction
of William Starkjohn as generalissi
mo, leached Nebraska City near the
nou hour and the members of the
party at once proceeded to enjoy din
ner, preparatory to the pleasures of
the day. The welcome extended by
the Nebraska City members to their
visitors was very enthusiastic and
hearty and there was nothing that
could add to their pleasure and enjoy
ment. The Plattsmouth delegation wa;
5-iV.wn vwr the city by auto and made
a complete tour of the Otoe county
metropolis. The sightseeing party
was in charge of Senator John Mattes
x-.nd A. I. Younir as the guides, and
every point of interest in the city and
vicinity was reached by the members
of the party in the trip. Beautiful
Morton park and Arbor Lodge, the
h me of the family, was visited, and
this monument to the great man that
had contributed! so much to Nebraska
City, was much admired. The visitors
from this city were very much pleased
with th" trip and gratified at the
treatment accorded them by their
friends at the city.
At the Sons of Herman hall a num
ber of addresses were given and the
speakers. Mayor John P. Sattler, Sen
ator Mattes, G. II. Tarns and Max
Pfitzmeyer, all touched on the splen
did enjoyment of the occasion and the
gracious hospitality that had been
shown the Plattsmouth delegation dur
ing their stay in Nebraska City. It
was a very pleasant time' for every
one and the large number in attend
ance felt that it was an occasion long
t be remembered as one of the most
pleasant in the history of the two
lodges. Those who made the trip from
this city were: Mayor J. P. Sattler,
John Bauer, sr., Albert Sergun, Al
bert Lentz, William Starkjohn, Max
P: ies, August Rakow, Frank Steppatt,
John Hirz. G. H. Tarn. Charles Ul

THE HEAVIEST RAIN STORM
OF THE SEASON LAST NIGHT
Last night one of the heaviest rain
storms of the season visited this ciey
and for several hours the downpour
was intense, the water falling in
sheets and in a very short time the
streets were decidedly uncomfortable
to cross owing to the depth of water.
The rain seems to have been general
throughout this section and for sev
eral miles south and as a result the
roads are quite muddy and hard to
travel. The rain lasted throughout
the night but was the worst from
8:C0 to 10 o'clock when the storm
was at its height. The streets were
cleaned olF in fine shape by the rain
and presented a fine appearance his
morning. The lowering of the paving
on Main street several years ago cer
tainly has been one of the biggest
benefits to the city that was ever" car
ried out as despite the heavy rainfall
and the immense volume of water that
drained through the business part of
the city, there was not the slightest
damage done. The church attendants
as well as others who were down town
at the time the rain came up ex
perienced discomfort in reaching their
homes and the storm caused the auto
mobile owners who were out to seek
a place cof refuge.

From Friday's Dally.
Renorts from Omaha state that
Mrs. Roy Dodge, who has been very
:sick at her home for the? past several
days, was showing much improve
ment, and this has greatly encouraged
her family. It was thought at first
that it might be' necessary to have
an operation performed in order to
give the patient relief, but it is hoped
now this will be avoided and that
she will recover without the necessity
of the operation. This will certainly
be very pleasing to the relatives and
friends in this city and they trust
that Mrs. Dodge may continue to im
prove until she is once more able to
be up and around.
