THE RED SOX PARK
UNERAL OF MISS
The funeral of Miss Anna Catherine
Schioeder was held yesterday after
noon from the Glendale church, near
Cedar Creek, and the services were
attended by a large number of the
childhood friends of the deceased
younjc lady, whose death had come so
suddenly. The services were in charpe
of Rev. J. II. Stejrer, pastor of the
German St. Paul's church of this city,
and the pastor spoke to the bereaved
family and friends the message of
comfort that the Savior had brought
to the world and through whom man
kind has their hope of the future life
everlasting. The burial was in the
Glendale cemetery, near the old home
of the departed.
Anna Catherine Schroeder was born
February 20, 11)00, near Pellevue,
Neb., and when a child of tender years
came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs.
J. P. Schroeder, to Cedar Creek, where
the family has since made their heme.
The departed lady was one who was
greatly beloved by all those having
the pleasure of knowing her and her
death cast profound grief over the
community where she had. made her
tome. , Miss Schroeder was ill only
about a week, suffering from a severe
case of appendicitis, and gradually
grew worse until death brought her
relief from her sufferings on Monday
morning, April 30th. To the family
who have lost their loved one the
deepest sympathy of the community
will be extended in this, life's darkest
hour of grief, and they will bear with
them the gentle memory of one who
had spent her yea.? upon the earth in
devotion to the Christian life and to
those she held dear.
The Te-Be-Cc team belong

and are one of the fastest teams

young men of this community is still
increasing, as was demonstrated this
morning when two more of the young
men of this city departed to take up
their work in the navy. Mike Hula
and Frank Ptr.cek were the young
men who decided that they desired a
part in the defense of their native
land against a foreign aggressor, and
accordingly entered their names at
the naval recruiling office in Omaha
for service. Mn Hula enlisted two
weeks ago and has been awaiting or
ders to go to the front, while Frank
Ptacek is entering the service today,
with the hope that he may be allowed
to accompany his Comrade to the sea-
coast and be assigned to one of the
nation's fighting .raft. This brings
the list of those joining the navy from
this city up to twelve, including Clyde
Kaufman, James ' Persinger, J. V
Brown, Cyril Jandaj Harry Wilson,
Charles Dovey, (Jeorge Rennie, Glen

MORE LITIGATION ON
Mrs. Joseph Warga, .-r., entertained
few hidy friends at a charming 1
o'clock luncheon yesterday, at her cozy
home on West Main street. The oc
casion was in honor of the hiithday
anniversaiy of Mrs. Jesse Warga, an;!
a few of her friends had been invited
to assist her in celebrating the happy
event in the proper manner. Cavers
were laid for six. At the appointed
hour the hostess served an elegant
luncheon, the table being filled with
many good things to eat, which was
thoroughly enjoyed by the guests. At
the gue.-t-cf-kono;- place at the table
was to be found a numbe'"' of pack
ige.; containing beautiful birthday re
membrances, which denoted the hi-h
esteem in which she is held by her
friends and which will assist her in
remembering this delightful c-nteitain-ment.
The afternoon hours were very
pleasantly whiled away in social con
versation, interspersed with various
amusements. As the evening hour
drew near the guests expressed their

The Washington avenue paving liti
gation between th residents along
that thoroughfare and Elm street am
the city of Piattsmouth has again ap
pearod in the lirr.e light. An appea
from the action of the city council
fitting as a hand of equalization, has
been filed in the district court by At
tomeys lh O. iKvyer and A. L. Tidd
as representatives of Edward Fitzger
aid and others, the plaintiffs in the
cause of action. The grounds set
fcjlh as leasons why the tax shouk
ra t be levied on the property of the
plaintiffs, is practically the same as
orTered in the first trial of the case
undo' tb.o petition for an injunction
against the city and in which action
the injunction was denied by Judge
iegley. The plaintiffs charge that the
district was not created according to
law, that the letting of the contract
was not legal, that the paving is a
general improvement to the city am
rat a special improvement to the
property along Washington avenue
and E'm street, and also, that the as
sessment of the taxes for the paving
is excessive against the property of
the plaintiffs in the case.
