STUDY TRIP OF WORLD
The Light Bearers of the Presby
terian church, who have just complet
eof their trip around the world study
book, held a travel party Saturday
afternoon at the manse. The mem
bers had been asked to bring a friend

the merry crowd. A short business
session was held and arrangements
made to hold a candy sale on connec
tion with the doll bazaar the Q. Z.
(society will hold Tuesday and Wed
nesday of this week. The rest of the
afternoon was devoted to games, all
of which pertained to traveling. The
one that provoked the most merriment
was the suitcase packing contest. The
hostess had planned refreshments that
delight children. The boys of the so
ciety did the serving. When the dark
ness began to come on the children
were loath to leave. Just before de
parting Mrs. McClusky, their leader,
announced that Emma Wohlfarth had
won the largest number of merit beads
during the year.and she was awarded
the prize, a beautiful cup and saucer,
Which will often remind her of the du
ties perTormed for the Light Bearers'
society. The next meeting will be the
annual election of officers.
Cough Medicine for Children.
Mrs. Hugh Cook, Scottsville, N. Y.,
says: "About five years ago when we
were living in Garbutt, N. Y., I doc
tored two of my children suffering
from colds with Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and found it just as repre
senter in every way. It promptly
checked their coughing and cured
their colds quicker than anything I
ever used." Obtainable everywhere.
SAMUEL G. PORTER OF
DENVER VISITING HERE
Samuel G. Porter, of Denver, a
former Plattsmouth citizen, was in
the city over Sunday visiting with his
cousin, Lee C. Sharp and family and
looking over the once familiar scenes
in the old home. Mr." Porter was a
resident here, in the early seventies
and spent his boyhood days in the old
town which he still regards with much
affection although it has been forty
years since he left here for the west.
The changes in the city were remarked
upon by Mr. Porter as well as the
fact that there is not a great many of
the old residents whom he knew that
are left and but few of the old play
mates remaining here although Iw.
was able to meet several with whom he
spent his school days. Mr. Porter
and Mr. Sharp departed for Omaha
this morning where they will look
over the sights of the great metro
polis of Nebraska.

RICHARDSON COUNTY SUPER
VISORS WILL FIGHT FOR JOBS
Falls City. Neb., Dec. S. There is a
.disposition on the part of the mem
bers of the county board of supervis
ors of this county to resist being auto
matically retired on the first of the
year to make way for a board of
county commissioners, which shall be
appointed to succeed them. They have
employed counsel and will, it is said,
test the constitutionality of the law
by which they are to be displaced.
At the recent election the voters of
the county, by a very narrow margin
only of those voting on the question,
decided to discontinue township or
ganization as a form of county govern
ment and revert to the commissioner
system. A petition asking that the
question be submitted was filed very
late in the campaign and little or no
discussion was had and but few votet
either for or against the charge, and
2,132 of the voters did not express
themselves either way on the matter
It is contended that the law which
allows a minority to effect such a
change in the management of county
affairs must be unconstitutional.

MURSHELL IS MENTIONED. -AS
Lincoln, Neb., Dec. 10. Rumor at
the state house is that Otto J. Mur
shcil of Ord may become the food
...mni.cinurr under the Neville ad-
I IVlli III lOil 1
'ministration. Mr. Murshell is a mem
ber of the fire commission staff at
the present time and is well known
in his section of the state.
The po?sible appointee to this place
was county clerk in Valley county and
was mayor of Ord for three terms.
He is an active democrat.
L. F. Langhorst, state chairman,
who was mentianed as a candidate
for this position, is said to have want
ed only to help out the Neville ad
ministration. He would have to sacri
fice his easiness interest, in a meas
ure, if" he came to the new administra
tion and that, his friends .here say,
he would not care to do.
Besides Mr. Langhorst was not a
candidate for the place in the usual
meaning of that term. He was anx
ous only to serve his pprty by help
ing the Neville administration make
"THE BOHEMIAN GIRL,"
Michael William Balfe's romantic
opera, -The Bohemian Gill," was for
many yeais the foremost favorite in
the recertoire of the best opera com
panies if Europe and America. It has
pathcrcd additional popularity during
the past six years through the most
elaborate presentation that hs? ever
been given to this work by the A born
Opera company, which will present it
at the Parmele theater next Saturday
night. Among the compositions pre
sented under the general head of
standard opera, there sLs net another
that has endr.red s this classic, which
has been established for nil time in the
lea'.m of music as Shakespeare's works
have been in the drama. The gems
of this masterpiece, such as "The
Heai t Bowed Down," 'I Dreamed I
Dwelt in Marble Hail," "Then You'll
Remember Mo." -The Far- Land of
Poland,'" "Bliss Forever Past," and
others, are the kind that do not lose,
'.r.t lather increase their hold upon
the popular affections by repetition,
while its story is most romantic, color
ful and full of dramatic interest.

REAL OLD WINTER WEATHER
RIGHT AT OUR DOORWAY
The cool breezes that sprang up last
evening brought with them a very un
pleasant reminder that real old winter
is at our door and that this section
of the west can look for a storm and
cold wave most any time now, as it
is long past due. The temperature was
not so severe as it stood at 12 aoove
zero at 7 o'clock this morning, but the
wind with its intensity made everyone
shiver, and the householder was kept
busy shoveling coal into the furnace
to keep warm. A very light snow fell
during the night, but hardly enough
to be very apparent. The weather in
dications are that the cold spell is just
starting and that zero will be passed
tonight all over the state.

Howard Taylor, while out hunting
Sunday saw in the heavens something
that resembled aiv- airship in size to
him, but seemed to be without the,
purr of the motor. He took a shot at i
it, and when it came to earth the re
cipient of a charge of lead, he was j
surprised to fino! what he had brought
down. He brought it to town and it I
