Meeting of the Library Board Last
Evening to Take Up the Mat
ter To Raise Funds.
The Plattsmouth Public Library
board met last evening and held an
interesting meeting, taking up the
question of collecting books for the
soldiers and otherwise aiding in the
establishing of 32 camp libraries at
the thirty-two cantonment camps lo
cated over the United States. Special
buildings will be erected to house
each of these libraries and the plan
is to open them to the embyro sol
diers very soon now. Libraries will
be furnished to every camp, whether
large or small, wherever groups of
soldiers are located. This is to be
done with the co-operation of state
and local libraries, each public li
brary being apportioned a pro rata
amount to furnish for equipping the
new libraries. The American Li
brary association, which was orga
nized during the past summer, thru
its War Service committee, is raising
one million dollars to be used is
carrying on this work. The plans to
raise this fund are now being per
fected and will be given to those in
charge in time for the opening of the
campaign, which is scheduled to be
gin September 24th and continue for
one week. This week will be desig
nated as "Camp iLibrary Week."
A budget has been prepared as
carefully as possible by the Finance
committee, showing just how the
money will be spent. The biggest
item is for periodicals and books,
which will require one-third to one
half of the entire $1,000,000.00. The
preparation of the books for use, in
cluding the necessary supplies, will
be a big item. The annual mainte
nance of the libraries will be in the
neighborhood of $150,000. covering
such items as personal service, trans
portation, rent,-printing and miscel
Each library is expected to do its
share, and apportionments have been
made for all libraries, the amount
allotted to the one here being $429.
This sum is to be raised by the pa
trons of the Plattsmouth library in
this city and adjacent vicinity. This
is a laudable endeavor and ' should
meet with ready response from peo
ple all over the country, as the work
can be accomplished easier by all
than should some fail to do their
part. Plattsmouth will not be lag
ging with the amount apportioned to
its people in this matter.
ORGANIZED FOR WORK.

mittee are now organized for ac

LOOK FOR THE PRIME CAUSE!
Scientists tell us that ninety per
cent of all sickness may be traced
to the stomach. If you have, for
instance, fits of great mental de
pression and your efficiency is brok
en down, if you suffer from dizzi
ness and headaches affecting, only
one part of the head, remember that
stomach disorders are at the bottom
of your sufferings. Triner's Amer
ican Elixir of Bitter Wine is the
best remedy for stomach troubles. It
cleans out the intestines and keeps
them clean, helps digestion, restor
es appetite and braces up the en
tire system. If you suffer from
chronic constipation, severe stom
ach gases, nervousness, insomnia,
general weakness, even if other
remedies have failed, Triner's reme
dy will never disappoint. Price $1.00
at all drug stores. Triner's Lini
ment is another dependable resource.
With this remedy at hand you must
not fear the rheumatic and neuralgic
pains of this season, sprains, strains,
swellings, etc. Price 25 and 50c
at drug stores, by mail 35 and COc.
