Flags, Flags, Flags, everywhere
they were in Evidence last night at
the Woodman Circle dance given by
Mrs. W. E. Rosencrans, and the dec
oration of the hall, being in charge
of Mrs. M. E. Manspeaker, while
Mrs. Lena Droege, the hustling dep
uty of the order was instrumental
in' gathering- together so large a
crowd of Plattsmouth young people.
The hall was finely decorated with
flags on the walls, on the windows,
on the banisters, the colums, sup
porting the balcony, and even the
electric light dependencies were
trimmed in the National colors, and
with a red cross on each wall, de
noting the purpose for which the
ladies were all working. Each of
fice of the Woodman Circle have in
their turn to give some kind of an
entertainment, and last evening was
the one for Mrs. W. E. Rosencrans,
and well did she succeed in the
achievement of the Idea and pur
pose of the order. Selecting with
care her assistants, she had every
appointment working in perfect
unison. The decorations were fine
and denoted a great deal of work
and study in the designing and exe
cution. The music furnished by a
class of stars, was just what was de
sired, and the applause which
greeted each number on its conclu
sion, was evidence of the manner
in which it was received.
There was a" large crowd present
Music arose with jts voluptious
All went as merry as a marriage'
The happy young people danced
and laughed and chatted, as th
hours fleeted away, and no one
could but enjoy themselves, for all
felt with the pulsations of the
music in and out among the dancers.
"On with the dance let joy be un-
No rest till morn, when youth and

WRITE THOSE SOLDIER BOYS.
Take it to yourselves. If you were?
down there where you did not know
but a very few people, being sud
denly taken away from the scene:7!
with which you are familiar, and no
one with whom you were acquaint
ed to associate with very . touch,
would you not like to get a letter
from home? Of course you would.
Such a letter would put pep in you
and cheer you up when, mayhaps
things were looking blue. Now you
who are here, try and write a let
ter, even if you have to write one
every day, it will do no harm. You
remember how you used to write to
that sweetheart or lover every day
and did not think anything about
it, but if she or he missed a day you
thought that was something awful.
Now help these boys by showing
them you take enough interest in
their welfare to write to them and
to want to hear from them. It is
a little thing to you but a big one
to them. Write them letters do it
now, and keep on writing. Cheer
them up; it is your. bit. DO IT.
THEY DEPART FOR THE NORTH.
Henry Zuckweiler and wife, and
son Dewey Zuckweiler and wife, de
parted today for Miller, South Da
kota, where they will make their
home in the future. Mr. David K.
Kbersole will occompany them, and

an equipment for their farm, in
the shape of machinery, that will
enable them to go to work at once,

other things, 'a tractor, with plows,
for working the soiT, which Un

and when they arrive and have
gotten settled in their new home
will be ready to do what work there
is to do this fall, and will save the
rush of spring work so common
with the farming interests, and
which in a measure can hardly be
avoided as the work has to be done
in the season for it. While the
citizens of Plattsmouth will dislike
to lose these excellent citizens they
wish them unbounded success in
their, new home.
