RETURNS FROM VISIT.
From Saturday's nalJy.
Last evening Miss Clara Mae
Morgan came in on number 14 after
a visit of several weeks duration at
various points in the state. She
left with the Camp Fire girls and
spent a week in camp with them
at Crete, Neb., where Clara Mae en
Joyed herself along with the others.
After that she left for Superior and
there had another pleasant visit.
From Superior she went to Sargent
and was there until yesterday end
returned to her home la.t evening
having had a most enjoyable time
all during her outing.
Loss Of Appetite.
As a general rule there Is noth
ing serious about a loss of appetite,
and if you skip a meal or only eat
two meals a day for a few days you
will soon have a relish for your
meals when meal time come3. 3ear
in mind that at least five hours
should always elapse between meals
so as to give the food ample time to
digest and the stomach a period of
ret before a second meal Is taken.
Then If you eat no more than you
crave and take a reasonable amount
of outdoor exercise every day you
will not need to worry about your
appetite. When the loss of appetite
is caused by constipation as is often
the case, that should be corrected
at once. A dose of Chamberlain's
Tablets will do it.

from Saturday's Pally.
Thecre are some few who are fool
ish enough to believe that "recon
struction" is a term that applies to
only cities and manufacturing com
munities and not to towns like our
own citv. Far be it from so. 1 he
reconstruction nolicv advocated by
big Interests of the nation is equally
vital to towns and villages as to ti;e
cities with towering skyscrapers.
And reactionary policies will provj
suicidal to either.
The war is over and the time has
tome to resume business unrestrict
ed. What matter if the era of high
prices be upon us? To pay high
prices in the carrying on of our busi
ness meais we will receive high
prices for the product we sell.
Plattsmouth is no reactionary. A
building campaign has been going
steadily forward this year, including
the expenditure of 540,000 for street
improvements and a neat sum for
the new Alfa-Maize mill now in pro
cess of construction, to say nothing
of residences and farm buildings
that have gone up in the past few
months. Local contractors' time is
engaged far ahead. But, still, the
demand for rental properties con
tinues. And higher wages means
higher rents for modern property
which, by the way. is about the only
kind in demand any more. People
are growing more and more to in

iences, be they owners or merely
tenants. And their's is a demind
that cannot be stifled.
The building of half a dozen or
more modern cottages in Platts

Creosote Preserves Fence Posts.
Creosote treatment about doubles
the life of wood ordinarily used for
fence posts, say University exten
sion engineers. Many species al
most valueless untreated may be
made to last 25 or more years.
Treatment may be done with a
small tank or iron barrel in which
the creosote can be heated. Tests
chow that the life of posts are
lengthened as follows: Ash, from 6
years untreated to 25 years treated;
Boxelder, from 4 to 26 yearg; White
Cedar from 14 to 30 years; catalpa.
from 17 to 26 . years; cottonwood
from 3 to 27 years; soft maple, from
3 to 27 years.
Still Time To Plant Late Vegetables
The latter part of July is the best
time to plant such vegetables as
turnips, beets, carrots, endive and
bush beans for winter use. Lettuce
and radishes may also be planted
then for later use. Seeds shown a
this time of the year need not be
sown as deep as earlier. Many
neoDle make a practice of saving
their own earden seeds. Lettuce,
radishes, squash, sweet corn, toma

seed can be saved to an advantage

From Saturday's Daily.
Peter Herold and family are to
day moving into their new home.
Some time ago the Herolds had the
house which has stood there for
years torn down and this summer
there has been in the process of
erection a new modern houre. Bert
Coleman has had charge of" the
building cf the house and has done
very good Job on it. The house
will be an entirely modern one and
will make a fine home for Mr. Her
old and family. The Herolds have
been living in the house owned by
M. S. Briggs and will be delighted
to be able to move into their own

of town. Carl has been in the army

ANTON RYS IN NEW YORK.
Word has been received of the
arrival of Anton Rys in this coun
try as he has landed in New York.
He is now with the Transportation
Corps and arrived on July 24. As
soon as he can be sent to some camp
and mustered out his friends may
look for him back in Plattsmouth
once more. Everyone will be glad
to know of Anton's arrival and he
will have a royal welcome awaiting
him when he finally does get here.
LOOKS FINE NOW.
On stepping into the meat mar
ket of S. S. Chase you are greeted
with a newness and cleanliness that
is indeed refreshing. The walls
have been thoroughly cleaned and
then tinted a pleasing buff shade.
All the woodwork and counters have
been given a coat of white. The
result is one that gives a sense of
cleanliness and coolness that is very
pleasing. Mr. Chase keeps a very
up-to-date shop which Is advertised

There is not anything like so
many deaths from this disease now
as before Chamberlain's Colic and

general use. When this remedy is
given with castor oil as directed

it is safe to say that fully ninety
nine out of every hundred cases re

were accompanied by Rev. Hunter

Hunter was working in a special
car when in some war an overhead
tank fell and in so doing fell upon
Mr. Hunter's hand and mashing the
ittle finger of his left hand onto an
iron table. The finger was crushed
quite badly. Supt. Baird immed
iately took him in his car to the
office of the company physician

for the worse is taken.
