Car Lead of Melons, Aeroplane Ex
hibitions and Other Interest
ing: Attractions.
Without stint in any direction,
and with a feeling of gladness that
the boys are house again, the pa
triotic citizenry of (he city of Elm
wood ana surrounding country, on
Thursday staged a ." celebration in
honor of the returned doughboys
and sailor lads thai v. oulil do credit
to a town of many times the size.
One of the brave sons from that
community gave up his life upon the
altar of devotion to American ideals,
and some forty more fortunate com
rades than he marched in t-ie parade
that was a part of the celebration.
Many were the attractions fur
nish and innumerable reunions or
the boys themselves or among their
relatives were 'accompanied by ex
pressions of pleasure on the faces
of the happy throng of '-ats county
ites who were present during the day
and evening.
A large platform had been erected
in the center of the street intersec
tion at the main corner, and from
this came an almost unbroken chain
cf fine music, furnished by the Ne
braska City and Syracuse bands. In
the matter of furnishing music, the
band boys proved most generous
and at no time during the celebra
tion did the spirits of those in at
tendance threaten to lag due to a
shortage of tuneful pieces.
It is estimated that there were
from five to eight thousand people
in attendance, but as they were scat
tered over the city, according as to
where their interest lay in the mat
ter of. sports and other attractions,
the congestion was not noticeable.
as it would have been had they all
been gathered together into a single
crowd. In addition to the band mu
sic from the platform, other stunts
took place there and a good many of
those in attendance found pleasure
thereabouts 'throughout the day.
A car load of water melons was
served during the day and everyone
was invited and expected to partake
of the hospitality of Elm wood citi
zens in the form of delicious slices
of chilled melon. There were also
many booths where merchandise of
a character in keeping with the gala
occasion was dispensed.
Rev. H. H. Harman delivered the
address of welcome to the returned
service men, during the afternoon at
the Chautauqua tent. Rev. Harman
was with the army of occupation as
a worker in the Y. M. C. A. and his
was a masterful address, as he is in
a position to speak advisedly and is

There was an aeroplane present to
give rides to as many as desired,
and while the length of time in ti e
air was fifteen minutes at the be
ginning of the day, before night the
number of applications had hoeom.;
so largo that the time was cut 10
live minutes, and still the bird-men
seemed to do a thriving business.
The opening day of the Chautau was the day following, and the
session of the evening was free, being
largely attended. C. S. Aldrich made
an address of welcome to the sol
diers, invited all to attend the Chau
tainiua and thanked all thore who
had contributed to the success !'
the home coming celebration.
In the evening the Plattsmouth
band arrived with a number of boost

Luck and Lack
Don't trust to luck. Luck is untrustworthy.
Systematic, scientific striving for any
goal is far more likely to bring you suc
cess than any mere failh in your success.
Just as changing a single letter changes "Luck" to
"Lack," so will the reverses of a single day change
plenty to want. But you can insure yourself against
. this by building your success on the habit of saving.
Save and Win
Be well dressed. Make friends. Increase your In.
fluence in your community. Enjoy the respect of
all your associates.
These things do not come to those who trust to
luck for them. Systematic saving will win them for
you. Systematic saving ,
will accumulate for you
a small fortune that can
safely and readily be
expanded to a large one.
Decide on a regular de
posit and start depos
