In Both City and State His Illness
Covered a Period of Several
Months' Duration.
From Saturday's Pally.
This arternoon at 12:40 John C.
Petersen, for many years one of the
active and prominent figures in the
civic life of the community passed
away, after an illness covering a
riod of several months.
Mr. Petersen has been in very
poor health since the first of the
year and was operated upon in the
early spring in hopes of securing for
him relief from his sickness but this
proved to be without avail and he
has gradually grown weaker until
the la.t few weeks when he has
Iit-cn confined to his bed for the
;;npatfr part of the time, patiently
awaiting the release from the suffer
ing and pain that he has so bravely
endured for this long period.
The departed has long been a
resident of Plattsmouth and has
been active in the business circles
of the city and during his residence
here was very prominently identi
fied with the work of the Masonic
order, and has filled the different
chairs in the blue lodge, chapter
and the commandry. and prominent
in the state grand lodge offices.
Mr. Peterson was a man univers
ally esteemed and respected by all
with whom he came in touch and his
death comes as a great shock to the
friends ovpr the city who have hop
ed that perhaps he might be spared
to them for a little while longer. In
the hour of grief the sympathy of
the entire community will go out to
the bereaved widow and children
who are called upon to part with
their loved one. The departed
friend was sixty-eight years cf age
at the time of his death and leaves
to mourn his loss the wife and four
children. Mrs. L. W. Barger, of
Rochester. New York. Mrs. E. L.
Spies, Mi.s Edna Petersen and
Charles Petersen. Jr.. all of Platts
mouth. John Charles Petersen was born
on September 1851. at Lanealand.
Denmark, and spent his boyhood
days in that county coming to Amer
ica when but a youth of fourteen
years, locating at Green Bay, Wis
consin. Here Mr. Petersen spent
several years and on December 2.
1S74, he was united in marriage to
Miss Ingelborg Bollette Jorgonsen
at Fort Howard, Wisconsin. To
this union five children were born,
four of whom survive the father
and one child. Charles Edward died
in 1SS1. After a few years spent
in Wisconsin Mr. and Mrs. Petersen
came to Nebraska and located on a
homestead near Tilden," Nebraska,
where they made their home for a
number of years and later located
in Columbus. Nebraska, where Mr.
Petersen took up the trade of butch
er and for a time owned and operat
ed a meat market in that city.
In the year 1S81 the family came
to Plattsniouth and have since made
their home here. The wife passed
away in this city on February 4,
1SSS. Mr. Petersen on locating in
Plattsmouth at once embarked in
business in the city, purchasing the
Fickler meat market and later erect
ed the building on lower Main street
i : o w occupied by the Johnsen meat
market and here for a number of
years be was engaged in the meat
'"isiness. On September 11, 1889
Mr. Petersen was married in this
city to Mrs. Martha J. Shannon,
who with the children is left to
mourn the departure of this good
man. During the intense excite

Mrs. Gossage Gains Twenty Pounds
Taking Tanlac Troubles
"I've gained twenty pounds since
I began taking Tanlac and I'm feel
ing better every day I live," said
Mrs. J. A. Gossage, of 440 North
Lawndale street, Kansas City, Mo. j
"For two long years I suffered j
from etomach trouble and nervous
indigestion." she continued. "Every
thing I ate soured on my stomach.
Gas would form and press against
m heart until it would flutter and
beat so fast I felt like I was going
to smother. I had severe pains
around my stomach and there was a
gnawing feeling there, too. I was
so dizzy that if I stood up suddenly
I would stagger and had to hold on
to something to keep from falling.
"I had tried all sorts of medicines
hoping to get relief but nothing did
me any good until my brother-in-law
persuaded me to try Tanlac. He
had been greatly helped by it and I
hadn't taken a half a bottle before
I noticed gas didn't form and make
mo 6ick any more. Of course I kept
right on taking Tanlac after that
and now I can eat anything I want
-without any trouble and I feel bo
fine I can do all my housework with
out, getting tired. From the way
I'm gaining in strength all the
t me I am convinced that I'll soon
be as well as I ever was in my life
and I'm glad to tell others what I
think of Tanlac. It's done me more
irood than everything else put to
gether." Tanlac Is sold In Plattsmouth by

To Arrange for Celebration for Re
turned Soldiers and Sailors
A Fitting Climax.
From Saturday's Dally.
The proposition of a home coming
celebration for the soldiers and sail
ors of the world war of this city and
vicinity, which has been discussed
at several different times, but of
which nothing definite was gained,
seems to be in a position now where
something worth while will be se
cured, as Attorney C. A. Rawls. of
this city and head of the Home
Guarfis organization that existeJ
during the war. is bringing the mat
ter to the attention of the mustered
out members of his organization.
Mr. Rawls. who is a live and pa
triotic citizen, feels that something
should be done In the city in the way
of a formal reception to the return
ed soldiers and sailors, is addressing
to the members of the Home Guard
company a letter in which he is
suggesting to the organization that
they take in hand the proposition
of preparing and carrying out the
homecoming for the members of tho
army and navy who were in active
service during the war. Mr. Rawls
in his letter states that it would bo
a fitting close to the active work of
the guards to render this token of
recognition to the boys who served
"over there" and over here as well
on active duty during the war.
To this end there will be a meet
ing of the Home Guard company
called for 7 o'clock Monday evening
on the lawn south of the court house
and at that time Mr. Rawls will lay
the matter before the company for
their action on it. A large number
of the members who have been in
formed of" the proposal are very en
thusiastic over the proposition and
it is certain that if the guards take
the matter up they will put across
a real celebration.
Almost every city in the state has
held or has under way plans for a
gathering of this nature and it cer
tainly cannot be Raid that this city
would pass it up especially as so
many from Plattsmouth were in ac-
jtive service in either the army or
navy and a greater part of those
from this city were overseas. The
Home Guards did good service dur
ing the time of the war in the com
munity and the assumption of the
role of hosts to the soldiers and
sailors of the community would be
a fitting close to their record of
splendid service.
From Friday's Dallv.
Reports received from the St.
Joseph hospital in Omaha state that
Charles Jeii -ek who is at that in
stitution receiving treatment for his
broken arm is somewhat better now.
The infection which for a few days
made his injuries very dangerous
has almost entirely disappeared and
the arm is now getting in such
shape that it will soon be possible
to reset the broken arm. It was
feared at the first that it would be
necessary to amputate the arm but
it seems now that it will be possible
to save the member. The contin
ued improvement of this young man
will be good news Jo the relatives
and friends in this city who have
been anxiously awaiting word from
his bedside.
Just What She Needed.
"I used a bottle of Chamberlain's
Tablets some time ago and they
proved to be Just what I needed,"
writes Mrs. Volta Bankson, Chilli
cothe. Mo. "They not only relieved
me of indigestion but toned up my
liver and rid me of backache and
dizziness that I had been subject to
for some time. They did me a world
of good and I will always speak a
good word for them."

The force of graders on the gov
rrnment aid road running south
from this city to Murray are pro
gressing very nicely with the work
and are now working on the road
near the" farm of Ben Beckman near
Murray. The road has been widened
out and graded up so that it is now
a great highway and as soon as it
is completed will make a splendid
highway that will be of great bene
fit to the automobile owners and
persons traveling between points in
the eastern portion of the county
The work has required a great deal
of labor in removing stumps and
trees from the sides of the road
where it was found necessary to
widen the road. This section of the
county will have a fine piece of
road that will be a pleasure to travel
over arid it is to be hoped that the
government aid can be secured on
the road north of this city leading
into Omaha which in a large num
ber of places is very difficult to
travel and one of the worst spots on
the Omaha-Kansas City highway.
At Home of Mrs. C. G. Fricke Miss
Alice Eaton Hostess to Epis
copal Church Society.
From Friday's Dally.
The Woman's Auxiliary of St
Luke's parish met yesterday after
noon at the charming home of Mrs.
C. G. Fricke in the north side, with
Miss Alice Eaton as hostess and a
most enjoyable afternoon was had
by the large number of ladies in at
tendance at the meeting. The prin
cipal portion of the afternoon was
devoted to a business session with
very interesting talks given by
Father W. S. Leete, rector of the
parish and Mrs. J. S. Livingston.
Father Leete in his remarks took
up the matter of the nation-wide
movement that has been started for
the strengthening of the member
ship of the Episcopal church in the
ITnited States and the efforts which
will be made by the church to bring
to the fold those who have wander
ed from the teachings of the church.
Another of the pleasing features
of the afternoon was the report giv
en by Mrs. Livingston of the educa
tional conference held at Racine.
Wisconsin. July Sth to ISth. at which
she was a delegate from the parish
here, and in her report of the pro
ceedings. Mrs. Livingston covered
very thoroughly the educational
work of the church and the plans
which have been made for the fur
ther advancement of the work of
the church along educational lines
during the coming year.
At a suitable hour in the after
noon dainty and enjoyable refresh

From Thursday's rally.
This morning the fire department
was called to the C. E. Hartford coal
sheds on Richey street near the
Burlington right of way, but by the
time the department arrived and
had the hose ready to play on the
fire the fire was out. As soon
as the ftro was discovered a
number of men from the Burling
ton shops and several who were near
the depot at the time hurried over
and by some quick work tore off the
boards on the roof of the shed which
were blazing and so put the fire out
without much damage. It is sup
posed that the fire was started by a
spark from a passing locomotive
alighting on the dry boards of the
roof and causing the blaze. The
fire department was delayed some
what on arriving by the fact that
there was not sufficient hose and as
the fire was so well under control
it was not necessary to have addi
tional hose brought up.

The mercnants of the city have
in the past week been experiencing
some difficulty in securing sugar in
sufficient quantity to supply the
full demand of their customers and
have consequently had to make a
curtailment cf the amount sold to
each one. This condition may lead
to a resumption of the short rations
which were in vogue during the
time of war although now there is
apparently a good supply of the
brown sugar and quite a good deal
of the cube sugar to be secured.
The season for canning and perserv
ing being at hand has caused the de
mand for the sweetness to increase
and also another explanation given
for the shortage is the fact that
many home made breweries and
stills require a great deal of sugar
so that while we may suffer a short
age of sugar now we have something
to look forward to in fthe future,
when the products of the plants are
ready to tap.
