The president's proclamation calls

BOY IS MARRIED AT
The Springfield (Missouri). Daily
Leader of June 19th, has the following
in regard to the wedding in that city
of Dr. W. W. Palmer of Blackwill,
Okla., and Miss Clara Moist of Spring
field. Dr. Palmer is a former Platts
mouth young man, and a son of Mrs.
J. M. Young of this city. He was a
graduate in the class of 1905 of the
local school and also a graduate of
the osteopathic college at KIrkville,
Mo., and cf late years has resided in
Oklahoma, where he has been 'success
ful in the practice of his profession.
In speaking af the wedding the Lead
"The marriage of Miss Clara Moist,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Moist
of Cherry street road, to Dr. W. W.
Palmer of Blackwell, Okla., was qui
etly celebrated at the home of the
biide's parents last evening at 8:30
o'clock. Dr. Henry Little of Calvary
Presbyterian church officiated, using
the ring ceremony. Only the immedi
ate family and a few intimate friends
of the bride were present. Dr. and
Mrs. Palmer will remain in Springfield
for a few days, then make the journey
to their new home in Blackwell, Okla.,
by motor car. The bride is prominent
in musical circles and has been for a
number of years identified with the
Springfield Musical club. The groom
is an osteopathic physician in Black
well." CASS COUNTY BOYS WHO
ENROLLED FOR DRAFT CAN
NOW JOIN HOME COMPANY
The opportunity for the red-blooded
young men of Plattsmouth and Cass
county to form a military organiza
tion of their own is now knocking at
their door, as the Sixth Nebraska is
allowing one company of infantry to
be formed in this community. Lieu
tenant Lundstrom of the Signal Corps
of Fremant, arrived in the city this
morning to remain for two days and
assist in the work of organizing the
young men of the community into a
military unit for service in the Sixth
regiment. It is the time for the voung
men to think over the advantages of
belonging to a local company, where
the associations will be more pleasant
and the opportunity for advancement
better than in any other unit. It is a
chance, and the last chance for the
formation of a Cass county company,
and those who are subject to the
draft should especially make it a
point to join, as it will insure them
a more pleasant service than will be
the case otherwise. The draft will
mean that those who are called will
be assigned to service wherever the
government sees fit to place them, and
without any chance to- choose for
themselves where they would care to
to. The Sixth regiment will be raised,
as there are already almost eight full
companies ready for the service, and
these will be mustered in and pre
pared for service as soon as possible.
It is time to weigh carefully just what
you would like to do, and it is well
worth calling on Lieutenant Lund
strom at the Hotel Riley rest room
and talk the matter over, and espe
cially those who are about to be draft
ed should get busy and enlist. There
have been a number already signed
up for service with the company, and
Plattsmouth and Cass county certainly
ought to be able to fill up the organ
ization that will be a credit to the
city and the county.
SOCIAL EVENING TOMORROW.
The Woodmen Circle will hold a so
cial evening tomorrow at the M. W. A.
hall. Everybody is invited to attend
and enjoy a pleasant dance and the
dainty refreshments. Admission,

Address of American, Who

Moscow, Friday, June 24. The
first meeting attended here by Elihu

palace of the governor general. There
were assembled representaties of the
Zemstov and municipal unions, the
Zemstov industrial committee and the
local council of the workmen's and
The meeting was in the nature of a
test to determine whether the commis
sion was to have the real sympathy of
the socialist element in the country.
It is said here that no foreigner ever
before succeded in enlisting the atten
tion and interest of this association of
committees representing the working
masses of Moscow- But as Mr. Root
began to speak antagonism and in
difference yielded to rapt attention
and he was warmly applauded at the
Move Along Right Path.
"We have seen nothing since we
came to Russia," said Mr. Root, "that
gives cause for criticism. We marvel
at the self control, the kindliness of
spirit and the sound common sense
that Russians display. We feel that
the work you are doing in the com
mittees is on the right path toward
an actual permanent democracy.
"The government of Germany, the
German social system, even German
socialists, are all militaristic in their
essential nature. They shall not gain
control of free America and if we can
help you to prevent their gaining con
trol of free Russia we shall be happy
in feeling that we have assisted in the
perpetuation of the ideals of our fath
ers, who fought and sacrificed to
make us free."
One Inharmonious Note.

Root, and the other members of the
commission- ihe oniv inharmonious
note was sounded by M. Grigori, rep
resentative of the workmen's coun
cil. He said:
"We hope that peace will be con
cluded, as soon as possible. This will
be different from past peace treaties,
because peace will be concluded not
by diplomatists but by the masses. I
hope that America will support Russia
in its desire for per.ee in the near fu
ture." The entire assembly arose and
cheered the Americans when they left
Root Before Duma.
At the second meeting before the
city Duma, Mr. Root said: "We have
heard reports about dangers threat
ening your new liberty, but we hope
you will find a way of expanding
your experience in local self govern
ment into power, which will govern
the whole nation. We have the mar
velous spectacle of a people remain
ing peaceful and preserving the rights
of others without the enforcement of
law, a people waiting only for the es
tablishment of a strong government
which will lay down the proper basis
for law and order- You have made
sacrifices in the past; we know that
you will still make sacrifices to pre
serve your freedom, won at such a
Have Faith in Slavs.
"Now comes the test. You must
make sacrifices. You must struggle
until your liberty is secure. We have
faith that Russia will do this."
The mayor in reply said: "The
aims of the war, the definition of the
problem standing before humanity,
have been given by your great pacifist,
President Wilson, who, in preserving
the ideal of peace has realized the
vital importance of the struggle. His
way of speaking appeals to Us."
On motion of the mayor the meet
ing unanimously decided to send a
telegram to Presidnte Wilson thank
ing him for sending the Root com
mission to Russia.
This is a very painful and dangerous
disease. In almost every neighbor
hood someone has died from it before
medicine could be obtained or a phy
sician summoned. The right way is
to have a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic

as to be prepared for it. Mrs. Charles
Enyeart, Huntington, Ind., writes:
"During the summer of 1911 two of
my children were taken" "sick with
cholera morbus. I used Chamberlain's
Colic and Diarrhoea Remmedy and it
gave them immediate relief."
