RESIGNS AS PASTOR OF
Hev. Levi W. Scott Tenders Resigna
tion to Members of Congregation
and Church Accepts the Same.
From Tuesday's Lally.
Plat turnout h is soon to lose one of
the able and forceful men who have
constituted the leaders in the religi
ous life of the community in the per
son of Rev. L. W. Scott, pastor of the
Christian church, who has resigned
charge in this city and the resigna
tion accepted by the church.
Kcv. Scott and wife have made
their homo in this city for the past
two years and have been among the
lea-.Iors of the community in the re
ligious work and their departure from
city will be a loss not only to the
church with which they have been
connected but to the community in
general in which their influence for
good was ,n strongly felt. .The city
has had few abler speakers or lead
ers than Rev. Scott and his excellent
work in the church has been recog
nized by the outside cities in secur
ing him for special evangelical work.
During their stay here the family
have made many warm friends who
will regret very much to see them
leave the church work here but Rev.
Scott and wife will carry with them
wherever they may locate the best
wishes of the citizens of Platts-mouth.

From Tuesday's Iiailj-. .
Some of the Plattsruouih ladies
have a decided objection to the use
of the term housewife as is jhown
by the following letter appearing in
the society department of the Om
aha Dee. The term is evidently
loathesome to the lady for the rea
son that implies sticking around
the li'ome fireside which is something
that is certainly out of date these
Dear Gabby: Having lived all my
life in a small country town. I hp?
not supposed to know or hear much,
however I am a daily reader of the
Bee. I have read and digested your
arrfcle in the "woman's section" of
last Sunday's I!ee "Pigs is Tigs."
and I agree with the woman who
lives jn the red brick house, about
being called a "housewife" by the
census taker. I not only "shy" at
the word, but I am going to jump
right onto it. and trample it to death.
"Housewife" sounds like "house cat,'"
and from-all the word implies, 1
judgo the duties are about the sairo
like the house cat. .she scratches
to get out, scratches to get in. lays
by the fire and cries for what she
gets to eat. When the "census tak
er" conies to our house, I f,hall give
mv pge correctly (I am not asham
ed 'of my years), and my occupation
as Vhome-maker, "mother, or pos
sibly "lion tamer." "snake charmer
or "bear killer," as the occasion may
demand, but never csn a man call
the "lady of his choice" a "house
wife." Oh. no! perish the thought.
