MEN OF THE
NOT SO SLOW
CELEBRATE FATHER'S DAY YES
TEREAY WITH MOST AP
ADDRESS BY LUTHER PICKETT
One of Crowning Features Others
Almost Equally as Good Fine
Music and Singing.
From Monday's Dat;y.
With all deference to the Iadiqs
who celebrated Mother's day f,o ap
propriately at the Christian church
a week ago, we are constrained to
say that in the matter of presenting
a" pleasing program the men of this
little church at the corner are not
to be considered second raters by any
means. For, in the father's day pro
gram given under their direction
yesterday, they proved therm-elves to
be most capable.
The matter of the arranging of the
program was placed, in the hands of
W. T. Wassell, who is an excellent
organizer and with the same care
that characterizes his business trans
actions, he selected personally each
of the different numbers on the pro
gram, with the result that the af
fair proved of extraordinary interest
and a very enviable success.
The auditorium of the church had
been decorated for the occasion, and
the theme being one pertaining to
man alone, men part icipated wholly
in the program. Every number was
good, but the length of the program
precludes individual mention.
The program began with the open
ing song. "Home. Sweet Heme." by.
the congregation and was followed
by "Hock of Ages." sung by the men
of the congregation. Then came the
Scripture lesson, prayer and announ
cements by O. ( Hudson. C. E. Whit
aker and Hev. I V. Scott, respec
tively. After this was a Four Minute
address on "Missions" by A. M. San
ders, followed by a duet, "Just as
My Father Wills," by A. M. Sanders
and W. T. Wassell. The next was
a recitation. "The Threadbare Coat,"
by Oran Burrows and then a song
The Latchstring of Father's Door." 1
by the Quartette composed of J. E.
Hrady. A. M. Sanders. W. T. Was-
sell and D. A. McElwain.
The principal address of the ser-Jsay about County Attorney A. G.
vice was that of L. V. Pickett, who Cole whom he had known as a boy,
spoke on the subject. "Our Fathers." j and spoke about hl3 having played

deliberate thought. Many would not ,
have taken time to perfect, such an
excellent address and to Mr. Pickett
is due much credit for his part in
making the program so successful.
Following the address by Mr.
Pickett was a song by B. A. McEl
wain and after that came a reading,
"Only a Dad" v by P. F. Rihn. Next
was a song, "Sometime, Somewhere.
Somehow," by the Fathers' Quar
tette composed of J. E. Brady, A. M.
Sanders, W. T. Wassell and O. C.
Then Thomas Wiles spoke at some
length on "Fathers." He spoke from

Marvelous Invention for Transform

From Monday's Dally.
This picture shows the new mill

at Third and Pearl streets on the
property recently vacated by the
city. The property, building and
equipment which is being made by
the L. C. Sharp Mfg. Co., will cost
about $50,000. This is- the first

mill in the U. S. A. equipped with
entirely new and patened machin
ery for producing a steel cut stock
food from all kinds of forage in
cluding corn fodder. The product
from this mill "will eliminate many
criticisms heretofore offered on for
age meals. The processes involve
in the case of alfalfa the saving of
the leaves which has heretofore
been milled to useless dust by oth
er processes. In the case of corn
fodder the whole plant is reduced to
a soft and palatable meal suitable
to combine with alfalfa and other
mixtures. The entire machinery and
processes used in tne mill are pat
ented and owned by the Alfa-Maize
Milling Co. It is expected that in
due season this stock food mill will
be of service to the farmers and the
community In general as it will
provide a convenient hay market
where farmers can get immediate
money exchange for such commodi
ties and at the highest market rate.
Owing to the lateness of the season
and the large amount of work in
volved in equipping the mill it is
not expected that a large produc
tion will be had . this season.
It is expected that these mills will
be erected throughout the Corn Belt

whose offices are at the L. C. Sharp

event is of importance to the farm

Some time since Mrs. John Grebe
was in the hospital at Omaha, and
returned with a promise that her
health would be soon improved, and
as the .days wore away it was seen
that her condition was not growing
better. A few days since she disap
peared, and shortly afterwards she
appeared at the Lincoln Sanitarium
asking for treatment, and was rath
er reticent about telling who she
was or from where, but finally it
was gotten from her and the rela
tives were notified.
Sheriff Quinton went to Lincoln
and accompanied her home, . when
she was given a hearing before the
board of insanity, who adjudged her
a fit subject for treatment at the
state institution, and this afternoon
she was accompanied by Sheriff
Quinton to that institution, where
she will be given treatment.

THE RED SOX TOOK THEM INTO

TEN TO THREE,
PRETTY FAIR ENTERTAINERS
Eut Lost More on Game Than They
Made with Their Show Want
to Play Another Game.
From Monday's Dally
Well, the Tennessee Rats of Mr.
Bronson's were here Saturday and
Sunday, coming with their sweet
hearts, nnd camping just across the
alley from the - Elks club, where
they proved to be very neighborly
and many people went to see a real
camp of colored people.
They put up a very entertaining
and mirth provoking program at the
Gem Saturday night and carried it
with them onto the ball diamond the
Goodall was first to bat for the
Rats, and was given a base on balls.
The next man up was struck out,'
Goodall making second and third in
the meantime. A little later, with a
burst of speed, this cloud of smoke
crossed home plate and registered a
tally for the coons. Johnson, first
baseman and real (comedian of the
aggregation was then put out on a
grounder and Hicks, the second base
man, was walked, going to second.

A half nf the inninsr those
who had placed their money on the!
Rats were feeling pretty good and
looking for more money to cover.
But when the Red Sox went to bat
a different story was rapidly unfold
ed. Beal was given a wajk, Christy
mide a. single, Gradoville a safe hit
and the bases were filled. Herold got
a two bagger and the boys came
pouring in like water out1 of a Jug,
gurgling for Joy. McCarthy got a
hit and Herold came home. Poisall
was walked as well as Janda. Grass
man went out on a fly, Poisall was
nipped at third and Stimpson was
out at first, but all of our boys had
been to bat and the Rat stock had
experienced a decided slump. Some
betting was then indulged in on in
nings to try and even up but no
one wanted to risk his money on the
colored team. The score now stood
four to one in favor of the Tied Sox.
The second, third and fourth in
nings were productive of goose eggs
on both sides. During this time the
Rats had put a new pitcher. Dint, in
the box and he seemed to be fan

In the fifth inning two more of
our boys came gliding across home
plate while the visitors did not get

In the sixth inning Christie,
Gradoville, Herold and Poisall each
made a run and we had ten to their
one, but the visitors were taking it
good naturedlv and a few of their
pi ivers were introducing a brand of
coon comedy that served to sort of
take the place of good playing that
might have otherwise been expect
ed by the crowd.
Nothing occurred until in the
eighth when Goodall scored another
run, making two for the visitors and
in the ninth Pitcher Dint scored a
run. The game thus ended with the
score ten to three in favor of the

him to a member of the A. E. F., Si

They laugh always; and they are
kind to everyone, taking nothing

paying in full for everything. When
angry they strike out with their

How to Rate Your Home Town!
When a stranger comes to Plattsmouth with the idea of
entering business or investing in real estate, he will rate the
community on five points.
1. Municipal improvements.
2. Bank deposits.
5. The advertising in the local paper.
That our city may always take a high rating, our duties
toward our community are plain and well defined.
Let us all get behind every municipal betterment; sup
port our churches and schools to the limit; advertise our
businesses liberally, efficiently; buy in our home markets
and the results, including bank deposits, will reflect credit
upon Plattsmouth, wherever it is mentioned.
