FRA17S YORK "OVER THERE'
From Thursday's Paily.
Mrs. O. L. York received a caul
from her son Frank, a few days rince
announcing his safe arrival in
France, having departed . from , N'ew
York about three weeks since. On
the eve of his departure he had writ
ten a card to Iiis mother, saying I
have arrived safely in France, which
was held by the officer at the port,
until a wire had come telling of the
arrival of the Khip on which he had
taken passage, at its destination.
The card there was countersigned by
the officer with a stamp, and for
warded. This would require some
days to send the card, from New
York here. Just before his departure
Frank had written telling of- his
marriage just, about a week before
the time of tailing. The bridt. w.ll
remain at Chicago, where she is em
ployed as an operator.
Bo You Sleep 'Well?
To be at his best a man must have
sound, refreshing sleep. When
wakeful and restless at night he is
in no condition for work or business
during the day. Wakefulness is of
ten caused by indigestion and consti
pation, and is quickly relieved by
Chamberlain's Tablets. Try a dorc
of these tablets and see how much
better you feci with a clear head and

From- Thursday's Daily.
Last Saturday, at Los Angeles,
California, was celebrated the fifti
eth anniversary of the wedding of
Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Wescott, who for
many years made their home in this

this city in 1879, and engaged in
business, remaining until 1910, when
they went to California to make
their home and have lived there ever
Mr. Wescott and wife were among
the best citizens of Plattsmouth and
have a large number of friends, who
remember their many kindnesses
There were present at the cele
braion of their immdiately family,
only Earl Wescott and family, al
though many of their former friends
from here and new ones formed out
there were present to wish them
good cheer and happiness.
It was originally planned that the
celebration was to be here among
the friends and scenes which time
and association had endeared to

traveling is bad and the weather is

in the season. The plans had beer

years for the celebration . of thi
