ER WEDS TH
AND NOW THE BOARD AT DAN
NEBROG MUST HUNT AN
OTHER TO TEACH
MARRIED AT ST. PAUL, NEBR.
Miss Mabel Adams, Former H.
Graduate Here, United to
Prof. P. E. Browne
From Tuesday's raily.
Last Wednesday, at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Warren, of St.
Paul, this state, occurred the wed
ding of Miss Mable Adams, former
ly of this city and Professor P. E.
Browne of the Dannebrog schools,
which is but the culmination of a
friendship that sprung up betveen
these two pedagogical workers as
their work in the same school tend
ed to throw them together and which
friendship ripened into leve. The
ceremony was performed by the
Rev. A. Adams, of Omaha.
The bride, who is a graduate of
the Plattsmouth high schools, was
born just south of this city and has
a host of friends here and in the
surrounding vicinity as well as at
the place where she has taught for
the past few years. Prof. Browne
has been principal of the Dannebrog
schools for the past five years and
has been selected for the coming
year. The school board will have to
get some one to spply the place of
Miss Adams, for as "Mrs. Browne"
she will devote her time in looking
after the household instead of the
school house. The bridal party ar
rived in Plattsmouth last evening,
via auto, to visit with the bride's
parents, W. T. Adams and wife, and
other friends and will visit for some
couple of weeks, after which they
will return to their home at Danne
brog, going by way of Fremont to
visit old friends for a short time.
The Journal joins their many
friends in extending congratulations
and best wishes, together with the
hope that their life may be one of
prosperity, happiness and suecess,
and that their most ardent aims in
life may be attained.

FRED G. DAWSON WRITES.
From Tuesday's Daily.
I was just reading of the Platts
mouth Rifle Range, so think you may
be interested in the Camp Logan,
111., Rifle Range, where I have ben
learning to shoot for thre-i weeks. It
is the finest in the U. S. with con
crete barracks, a permanent hos
pital, electric pump supplying plen
ty of pure water, lights etc. Covers
about 900 acres, has its own sta
tion on C. N. W. R. R., has telephone
and lights for night firing.
The navy uses Type B. Target
Cx6 feet with a 20 unit bulls eye.
these go up one at a time or all to
gether for rapid firing each ring is
9 inches wide. There are also a
1,000 yard range for machine guns,
its 76 targets going up half at a
time or all together. When all go
together there sure is some powder
burnt, it costs about $25 a minute.
The very best thing about this ar
my and navy work is the Y. M C. A.
war work. They sure do care for
the moral and spiritual as well as
bodies of the boys, some who were
nothing but booze fighters when they
first came are on the right track. I
am sure you will see a great im
provement in morality after the war
by reason of the Y. M C. A.

PELLED TO IN
A THING WE HAVE BEEN FIGHT
ING AGAINST FOR MORE
THAN A YEAR.
AH EARLY WAGE RATE INCREASE
Also Increased Cost of Paper and All
Supplies Make it Absolutely
Necessary, to Continue
From Wednesday's Daily.
For the past year or more the
Journal has been, fighting against
the proposition of increasing rates;
we have stood the high cost of liv
ing all along the line, paid from
double to three times as much for
our print paper; everything used in
the .printing line has doubled in
price, still we have continued doing
business at the same old schedule of
prices. Most of the papers over the
state increased their prices long ago,
but we were hopeful of being able
to continue the fight against great
odds until a better condition might i
come about in the paper market,
but such condition has proved as
elusive as the rainbow in the fairy
tale and today the condition, instead
of being better is worse.
We expect to make a substantial
increase in the salaries of our help.
commensurate with the good scale ,
of wages it has been the policy of
the Journal to pay in the past, and
in keeping with the increase of our
new schedule of prices. This must
be done in order that our employees
may successfully battle against the
present high cost of living.
From and after the 15th of June
the price of the Evening Journal
will be advanced to 15 cents per
week. This increase will not be felt
by any one of our readers, but tak
ing the list over the city as a whole
the advance will greatly assist us !
in meeting the added expense.
The Semi-Weekly edition of the
Journal will be advanced from $1.50
per year to $2.00. This is one
branch of the business that we feel ;
sure many of our readers have ex-'
pected to see advance in price some !
time ago, as many of our farmer
friends and patrons have called to
renew their subscription from time
to time and expressed surprise that
they were not compelled to pay 50
cents more a year for the Semi-weekly
Journal. So we feel that the ad
vance in this brance will meet with
the approval of every one of our
The new rate on the Semi-weekly
will become effective on and after
the first day of July, but all re
newals will be accepted up to that
time at the same old price.
We trust that our readers will
realize that this change in prices is
forced upon us In order to remain in
business, and will continue to give
us their loyal support in the future
as they have in the past.
TWO MORE CALLS ARE MADE.
From Wednesday's Daily.
The local board have today re
ceived two additional calls for men,
being calls numbers 658 and 674

has been here since yesterday for
14, making 76 in all, and a call for
limited service, of about twenty,
which is nearing up close to the
hundred mark. This will be well
along towards if not quite the end
of the list of the class one which
were registered a year ago. Nothing
has been received at the office of
the local board, as to what the men

Perhaps you have never thought
of it, but this disorder is due to a
lack of maisture in the residual mat
ter of the food. If you will drink
an abundance of water, eat raw
fruits and take lots of outdoor exer
cise, you may be able eventually to
overcome it entirely. In the mean
time use the most mild and gentle
laxatives. Strong and harch cathar
tices take too much water out of the
system and make a bad matter worse.
Chamberlain's Tablets are easy and
pleasant to tako, and most agreeable
in effect. Give them a trial.
