There is considerable rejoicing at . ... 1 101(7 MpiijijtHMHHmMiitHpHfmiin the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lin The Demand for Apartments Greatly In Excess of the Present Capacity. From "Wednesday's Dally. Daring: the last few weeks the big Omaha Construction company has been making quite an appreciable change in the appearance of the lots nt 3rd and Vine strets, where a large number of artisans and laborers are lushing the construction work on I'lattsmouth's new apartment house. The builders state that work is to be rushed with all possible speed, as the building owners have already re ceived more applications for apart ments than they will be able to accom modate, from people who are anxious to get their personal effects settled in their new quarters before winter weather sets in. The men at the head of the com pany which is to own and operate I'lattsmouth's new apartment building, are proudly congratulating themselves today over the future prospects of this building as an investment. They point to the fact that they already have many more applications for apartments than they have apartments itnd that more applications are con tinually being received. Some state that it would have been an easy mat ter to keep full a building one and a half times as large as this is to be when completed, and therefore that they expect to see the building fully occupied right from the start with a big waiting list continually on hand. This building, which is to have every modern convenience such as gas fr cooking, electricity for lighting, with completely equipped bath rooms in every suite, and with running hot and cold water in the kitchens as well :is in the bath rooms, and with modern laundry equipment in the basement for every tenant's use. is to have four teen "-room apartments and six 4-i-oni apartments the entire building t- be heated by steam. The location of the building is ideal in every way for the convenience of the many Plattsmouth people who will make their homes here, and there is little doubt but what it will be one of the most popular places in this city when completed. Plattsmouth's contemplated expen ditures for moderizing this city with pavements and with a fine, new school building, together with this fine new modern apartment residence building, is giving this place a reputation for doing things and is attracting favor able attention from other communities all over Southeastern Nebraska who are studying the things we are doing so successfully some with the hope doing likewise. In other words, Platts mouth is showing itself as a leader these days a position hard to achieve and therefore one in which we can well afford to take pride in maintaining. derman over the fact that a fine little daughter came yesterday noon to make her home with them in the fu ture. The mother and little one are both doing nicely, and Fred is very proud, over the newcomer, who is the first in the family and the object or I much admiration from not only the parents, but the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Linderman and Mr. and Mrs. Chris Mockenkaupt as well. It is to be hoped the little lady will be a joy and comfort to her parents in the years to come.

From "Wednesday s Dally. lhe heavy rams of the past few days has demonstrated clearly that the need of curbing and guttering of North Fifth street from -Vine street north. The rain has washed the street very badly, and on the gutters on the side the water has been very much in evidence in washing out the dirt The placing of the curb and gutters on the streets certainly goes a long way in making better streets and in cutting down the expense "to the city in caring for them, as they remove one of the great evils of a dirt road wav that of washing at the time of each heavy rain. On the streets where the curb and gutters have been placed it is far easier to keep the streets in good shape and at a cost far less than that of the purely dirt roadway. Main street, Sixth street and Third street have certainly proven that this is one way of making a long step toward better streets, and while the cost is seemingly heavy at the commencement, it is not long before the amount is saved to the city in the cutting down or the necessity of having someone on the job trying to keep the roads in passable shape. The situation of North Fifth street is such as to make it hard to keep the road way in good shape unless some such step is taken, and the property owners should see that they are in the front ranks of progress in urging the crea tion of a curbing and guttering dis trict in that section of the city. North Sixth street is 100 per cent' better at the present time, as is Main street, from the use of the curb and gutter, and on the hilly streets they certainly should be adopted. FUNERAL OF MRS.
