J. IN PLATTSMOUTH
4- FORTY YEARS AGO.
Thomas Evans of St. Joe, once, of
this place, is visiting us anil can laugh
as heartily and tell as good a story as
Mrs. Cox of Kansas City, a relative
of Mrs. C. H. I'armele and Miss Bak
er, and a former resident of this city,
is visiting her relatives here.
Charley Clapp of Stove Creek was
in town Monday and Tuesday. Char
ley is said to be a candidate for coun
ty clerk, and will have Stove Creek
solid in the convention.
Mr. T. J. Todd and wife have re
turned from their loner visit east, both
looking: very much better for their
trip and it seems natural and good to
see the old gentleman around again.
Miss Emma Herold returned from
Glenwood last week, where she had
ben visiting' friends, jn company with
Mis? Lultj Austin, who is still stop
ping at that place.
Miss Ola Barnes left Sunday aft
ernoon for Mount Pleasant, la., where
she will attend the Musical college the
On our road to Weeping Water the
other day, we observed that our old
friend, James Hall, is building him
self a very cozy, substantial farm
house and home. With a nice avenue
of trees, by and by leading to the
house, James will have one of the
prettiest places in Cass county.
Tuesday morning Peter Bates and
his partner, Chris Kohnke, made up
their minds they were not satisfied
with their shop room down town
they wanted more room and further
up town. In ten minutes after this
conclusion the lumber was hauled onto
a lot on Seventh and Main street, be
longing to Dr. Schildknecht, which
they had rented, and before night the
outskirts of a very respectable car
jenter shop were completed, and yes
terday they finished it. That's pretty
lively work .
At their hall on Monday evening,
there assembled a very largo crowd,
among whom were seen the members
of the Omaha Mannerchoir, consisting
-f the following: Bolkhoff, president;
John Baumer, vice president; Simon
Hoffmann, leader; B. Orkhoff, H. Kras
burg, Charles Krell. W. Mack, Ed
Wirth, William Wechbach, John Lutz.
The hall was handsomely decorated
with evergreens, and with mottoes
(printed in German) encircled with
green leaves and sprigs of cedar. At
the rear of the hall, was the greeting,
"Wilikommen!" While on either side
were three more, as follows:
"Wer nicht licbt Wein, Wcib und
Dsr blcidt ein Narr scin Lebelang."
"Eintraeht und Liebe!"'
"Frohusinn und Sehorz!"
''Wo man singt, da kisz dkh ruhig
Eoese Mensclun haben keine Licdcr'."
"Einigkeit macht stark!"
"Eintiacht, Fiiede, Freude ur.d Ce
sang, Eegleite dich dein Lebelar.g!"
"The band discoursed sweet inu.-ic,
after which the . Plattsmouth class
gave a glorious song, followed by the
Omaha class. Mr. OxwaM Guthmann
delivered a little speech, don't know
what about, something about. "e
sang" and "Lebetong," for which lie
received cheers. Then ow: sang
another song, which was followed by
a laughable declamation by Mr. Ga
briel Rasgersheck. and though wc
couldn't understand it, we laughed,
because all the rest of the Germans
did. It was something about a boot
black, whose master offered him "zwei
Thaler" (S2) if he would shine his
boots without drinking a glass of
"Schnaps," which stood on the table
After smelling of it several times, he
couldn't control his appetite, and down
went the "Schnaps."
Then followed song, music and trip
ping of the light fantastic, till the
"wee sma' hours."
Elsewhere in this issue of the Jour
nal will be found the announcement
of the great automobile contest sale
that is to be held at the store of E.
G. Dovey & Son for nineteen days,
commencing on Saturday, February
3d, and closing on Saturday, Ferurary
24. The stock of $35,000 worth- of the
best goods on the market will be of
fered to the public at very low prices
during this time and will afford a
splendid opportunity to the shoppers
to secure bargains at this sale. A
ueautiful Ford touring car will be
given away absolutely free during the
contest sale to the man or woman,
church or society, bry or girl, receiv
ing the largest number of votes.
These votes will be given with each
cash purchase and on all sums paid
on account, and gives someone a
splendid chance to secure a fine auto
mobile in a very easy manner with
only a small amount of rustling on
the part of the contestant. This old
established firm carries one of the
finest lines of goods of any store in
this section of the state and at the
prices offered they certainly should be
taken advantage of by the shopper
who is seeking to save money and re
duce the high cost of living, and at
the same time affords semeone an op
portunity of securing a fine Ford car.
INTEREST IS COMMUNITY

W. S. Scott of Murray has arranged
to furnish lunches at all sales
throughout the county where it may
be desired, and will see that the needs
of the hungry are looked after prop
erly. Anyone who is desirous of hav
ing lunch served at any public sale
should call on or address W. S. Scott,

Community development and inter
est is one of the questions that at
present is being taken up all over the
country, in both city and rural com
munities and one of the bright young
teachers of this county has given the
following very able article on this
.spirit of community development:
'"A community, like an individual
must grow better by a closer and
more intimate knowledge of the things
immediately surrounding it. It must
grow til rough a bigger, broader view
of the obligations of life.
"A community fails to grow when
the average of its citizens fail to
grasp the spirit of progress, so a com-
muiiity is not bettered by better con
ditions environing a few homes, bu
by the better conditions environing the
many the average homes.
"And even when a community has
better homes it hasn't all it must
have bettter churches, better schools
and the extension of the educational
thought in manv directions before it
reaches the high point of community
development and efficient community
spirit. It must have lectures, librar
ies, sermons, amusements, sports am;
all of the things in an educational
way that make men and women big
ger and better and help to throw off
the cares of life and enjoy its bles
"The individual in a community
who fails to encourage better schools
who is opposed to better roads, who
refuses to support the Chautauqua,
who takes no interest in the demon
strations on the farm, who fails to
atttnd church and support the preach
er, who neglects to encourage the
teacher, who forgets to subscribe and
pay for the home paper, who fails to
show his appreciation of the better
cattle, hogs and horses he who
knocks the home town and the local
merchant he who docs any or all of
these things lacks community spirit
"Community spirit is the nation's
best asset when applied in the practi
cal way, and like religion it becoms
better the more one works at it. I
is for seven flay living, and not for
day living alone."
