The acuteness of the coal shortage
in Omaha and this city has caused
the situation here as to light and
power to become very serious indeed
and it is only a question of a very
short time until the local plant will
be forced to curtail or cease their
service to the city unless radical
changes occur in the coal situation
and the question of relief in that di
rection for some time at least is
Manager Kuykendall of the Ne
braska Gas and Electric company has
been laboring hard to keep up the
best possible service for the Platts-
' mouth patrons of his company and in
hopes of being able to supply them
in tbe face of the coal shortage has
devised the plan of rnstallinp an oil
burning system at the local plant
that would serve to keep up the light
and power service here. The coal
supply on hand here is only available
for two or three days and the closing
of the service from the Omaha com
pany may occur at any time as the
situation in that city is very serious.

All of his short life was spent in
this community. In most respects
his life was as that of the average
normal boy in the community, till
two years ago when he submitted to
a serious operation from which, it
seems, he never really recovered.
Whatever of pain or inconvenience
he may have suffere'd. however, was
kept from those who loved him. for
there was no bint of the trouble
which took him away till just a day
or two before the event.
George was in the seventh grade
at the school, a member of the band
and a member of a class of bovs of
his own age in the Sunday school
About four years ago he was bap
tized going forward to that step of
his own accord and with an evi
dently intelligent conception of what
he was doing.
He was growing up with a beau
tifully clean mind and entire free
dom from some of the habits to which
boys of his age are falling into. He
was of a lovable nature. He saw-
only that which was good in his
playmates, and tried to put the best

did which might have been subject

A large number of the business
houses and industries of the city are
dependent upon electric power for

The failure of the light and power
service would mean a great deal of
hardship to the city and to a number
of the industries it would mean an
enforced closing for an indefinite
period of time. The large users of
the electric power are very desirous
of keeping the service up as long as
possible and the propsition of the
manager of the light company is the
only logical handling of a very seri
