GREAT GATHERING OF THE
THREE LINK BROTHERS HELD

From Monday' Dally.
One of the largest I. O. O. F. meet
ings ever held in the city was held
on last Saturday evening when the
members of the Platte lodge No. 7.
were hosts for a delegation of sever
al hundred members of the Omaha
lodges and who with their officers
and drill teams put on the work
of the order including the initiatory,
lirt. second and third degrees.
When the meeJing was first sug
gested it was thought that perhaps
one hundred of the Omaha members
might come to visit with their asso
ciates in Plattsmouth but the Omaha
organizations proved to be on the job
and completely surprised J. H. Short
and his associates on the committee
that had the event in charge. The
Omaha delegation began arriving in
the city during Saturday afternoon
and when No. 14 arrived at 9 o'clock
Saturday night, there were two
coach loads of the membership of
the Omaha lodges on hand to take
part in the proceedings. A great
parade of the three link adherents
was formed up Main street from the
railway station to the A. O. I. W.
hall, where the sessions of the lodge
was held and the members of the var
ious lodges evinced their enthusiasm
with cheers as they moved toward
the gathering place where the candi
dates awaited in meekness the arriv
al of the members who were to lead
them into the full mysteries of the
great fraternity of Oddfellowship.
There were some f00 members of
the order at the hall when the ses
sions of the lodge opened shortly
after 9 o'clock and the work in the
various degrees continued through
out the night until 6 o'clock Sunday
morning when the last candidate was

the organization as the committee
members. J. F. Clugy. J. Hudgins, T.

of tbe Platte lodge No. 7, while
Sanford Short, vice-grand, and H. T.
Short, secretary, also assisted in the
work of caring for the comfort of
The members of the Omaha lodges
gave a most impressive and beautiful
initiation and their manner of carry
ing out the ritualistic ceremonies left
a deep impression on the candidates
present. The Omaha Odd Fellows al
so enjoyed the surprise they had
brought to their old friend. J. H.
Short, as they had given the impres
sion that they would not be able to
bring more than seventy-five or a
hundred members with them and in
stead had brought some three hund
red of the live wires in Oddfellowship
The meeting was one of the, if
not the most successful and largely
attended meeting of the order ever
held in the city. The only thing to
disappoint the members of the local
lodge was the fact that the band that
had been promised to assist in the
parade failed to materialize for the
event and caused considerable dis
appointment to the committee in

a very serious accident at the inter
section of Fourth and Main streets.
The automobile of John liable was
coming south on Fourth street as
Connie was coming down Main street
on his bicycle and the two vehicles
met at the corner of the curbing on
the east side of the Fourth street
corner. The auto struck the front
wheel of the bicycle and mashed it
up badly while Con was thrown
clear of the bicycle and struck with
considerable force on , the cobble
stones. He was in a partially dazed
condition for some time and it was
feared at first had sustained serious
internal injuries. He was taken by
the occupants of the car at once to
the office of a surgeon where an ex

found to have escaped with a few
bruises and scratches which is very
fortunate as he might easly have
sustained serious injuries.

Yesterday morning the members of

O. E.. paid a tribute of memory to
those of the brotherhood who have
gone before and are now at rest in
their well deserved reward.
For the first time the lodge held
their services in a church as it has
been the custom in years past to hold
these services in either the Parmele
theater or in the lodge rooms and the
services at the First Presbyterian
church were quite largely attended
by the membership of the order and
the general public.

three of the membership and it was
to these worthy brothers that the
services were dedicated.
A very beautiful tribute to the de
parted members of the order during
the past year was paid by Judge J.
T. Begley and who in the short time
alloted to him gave a resume of the
splendid lives of those who had been
called from the lodge on earth to the

'BETER SPEECH WEEK.
"Men and women who use words
carelessly are at a disadvantage both
in business and social intercourse.
Husky speech, lisping speech, word
clipping speech. ungrammatical
speech are real handicaps. There are
men today in inferior positions who
long ago would have commcrnded good
salaries if they had taken the trou
ble to remedy speech deefcts. Strange
how careful people are of dress and
at the same time how careless these
same people are about speech which
is the dress of the mind. Words are
necessary aids for considering and
solving mental problems, the more
right words you have the more com
petent you are to consider these
things." H. D. Addington, Bruce.

VISITS OLD HOME.
A number of years ago two young
musicians located in this city and for
some time were the center of the
musical life of the community, but
later removed to the east where the
opportunities in their chosen lines
were much better. One of these men
was Frederick Gaeda, whose work
on the violin in. those days stamped
him as one of the coming artists of
the country. Saturday afternoon
Mr. Gaeda arrived in the city from
Chicago where he is now located for
the first visit in this city in over
seventeen years. '. lie is now located
in the windy city, having a studio
there and has a large number of pu

his chosen line.
DEATH OF REV.
Former Pastor of M. E. Church in
This City and For Forty Years
Laboring in Church Work.
Rev. Francis A. Campbell, one of
the best known Methodist ministers
in the state of Nebraska, died yes
terday afternoon at Sharron. four
miles east of University Place, while
he was engaged in preaching when
stricken with paralysis, from which
he died a few hours later.
Rev. Campbell had often visited
the Sharron church as he was a close
personal friend of the pastor Rev.
D. W. Parker, and yesterday morn
ing he was preaching at the 11
o'clock service on the text "How
Shall We Escape If We Neglect So
Great a Salvation." The first inti
mation of the illness of the minister
came when he halted in the middle
of a sentence, his left hand poised
in a gesture dropping to his side and
his face beginning to draw to the
side. Hastingly he said: "I guess
I'll have to quit" and was assisted
to a seat by his friend. Rev. Parker.
Despite the st roke that he was suf
fering from Rev. Campbell requested
the audience to, si &g. Does - Jesus
Care" to quiet IhVconf lision that the
illness of the minister bad caused in
the audience. At the end of the
song Rev. Campbell was taken to the
parsonage nearby where he was put
to bed. He remained conscious un
til 3 o'clock in the afternoon and
passed away at 5:30.
Rev. Campbell has been in the
ministery for the past forty years
and for twenty-two years was one
of the most successful evangelists of
the church and it is claimed had
brought more persons into the church
than any other one minister. He was
a strenuous worker and his great sac
rifices of his health in the cause of
the church had contributed to the
bringing on of his fatal attack.
The Methodist rhurch oX Platts
mouth owes a great deal to Rev.
Campbell as on his coming here in
the late nineties he found the church
which was then located In the build
ing on South Sixth street now occu
pied by the Waslev garage, heavily
in debt, the burden of which had
long been on the church member
ship. Rev. Campbell succeeded in a
tour in the east in raising the debt
and it was his hand which lit the
match to burn the mortgage when it
was destroyed at a great jubilee meet
ing held at the church and he was
one of those who assisted in the pos
sibility of securing the present hand
some church building.
It was Rev. Campbell who erected
the first cottage in the present town
of University Place and his son Floyd
was the first child born in that place.
At the time of his death he was
seventy years of age and leaves, be
sides the wife, five sons. Alva W.
and Floyd W.. both of University
Place. Morris A., of Benedict. Harley
H. of Mitchell. S. D.. and Frank R.
of Denver, besides the daughter,
Grace, who made her home with the
parents at University Place.

WM. THOMPSON. RESIDENT AT
MASONIC HOME DRAWS NEAR
From Wednesday's Dallv.
To have reached the ninety-eighth
milestone of life is something that
is given to but few persons to enjoy
and one of these is William Thomp
son, one of the residents of the Ne
braska Masonic Home in this city
who yesterday observed his anniver
sary. Mr. Thompson was born in Phila
delphia, Pennsylvania. December 7,
1822. and has lived to see some of
the great triumps of American in
dustry and invention and event that
seemed impossible in the days of his
youth have come to pass in the last
decades of his lifetime. At the time
of his birth the republic of the Unit
ed States was still in its infancy and
the institutions of free government
that our forefathers had established
was still in the trial stage. James
Monroe was the president of the
Uinted States at the time of the birth
of Mr. Thompson and the spirit of
liberty Avas just beginning to spread
through the South American contin
ent where the Spanish kings held
their dominions and the world fa
mous doctrin-? of President Monroe
had not yet been proclaimed to the
world as it was delivered in De
cember, 1S23, one year later. There
were but twenty-four states in the
federal union at that time, and the
country west of the Mississippi river
was practically unknown save
through the records of the Lewis and
Clark expeditions to the Oregon
country and the settlements in the
central states of Iowa and Nebraska
were mere trading posts with the In
dians. A great part of the present
mountain and Pacific states were still
a part of Mexico and the dreams of
the great continent wide empire was
far from realization.
The wonders of the development of
his country. is something that was j
given to thl splendlu'old srentleiiiaii '
to realize. He has saw four wars
sweep over the land and American
arms victorious in the struggles to
which the nation had dedicated It
self, the war with Mexico to wrest
the freedom of the border country
from oppression, the great civil war
that tested whether or not the na
tion should exist undivided and free
in every sense of the term, the Span
ish war that, brought freedom to the
residents of the remaining Spanish
possessions in the western hemis
phere, and the World War when the
nation of his birth preserved civili
zation from perishing in the sea of
blood that the European crowned
heads had brought on the world. The
railroads, the telegraph, the tele
phone, the wireless message, the air
craft that might fly (through the
heavens and thousands of other in
ventions that have contributed to
the comfort and advancement of
mankind have all come to pass in
the lifetime of this grand old man
and veteran Mason.
Mr. Thompson is a member of the
Masonic lodge at Clarks, Neb. .and
has been a member of the order foi
many years. In 1911, his health
failling. lie came to Plattsmouth and
entered the Masonic Home where he
has since resided. Although suffer
ing from the infirmities of his great
age he is e.t ill bright and alert and
while confined to his. wheel chair for
the greater part of the time keeps
well informed of the doings of the
busy world in which he has so Ions
been a figure.
Yesterday the superintendent Y.
F. Evers. and the members of the
family at the home arranged a small
celebration of the birthday anniver
sary and one of the features of which
was the large birthday cake with
the figure "9S"' outlined in candles
and the guest of honor presided at
the cutting of the ceremonial cake
and all members of the home enjoyed
the treat. A few days ago hen Mr.
Thompson was asked as to what he
desired for Christmas he replied that
the only gift that he desired wa3 the
blessing of the Lord that has protect
ed and comforted him all the days of
his life on earth, a truly Christian
It is the wish of the members of
the home and the friends of Mr.
Thompson that he may enjoy the
coming of his 100th anniversary with

AT THE WAGNER
New Lighting Plant and Laundry
will be Installed by Fred
Wagner at Early Date.
From Tuesday's Datty.
Fred Wagner, proprietor of the
Hotel Wagner, is making some im
provements at the hotel that will
prove not only a money saver for the
hostelry but much more convenient
for the owner and his patrons. This
is the installation of a lighting plant
as well aa a new modern laundry
that will serve the hotel.
The lighting plant that Mr. Wag
ner has secured is one of the Phelps
system which is handled by J. F.
Warga, the local agent and is com
plete in every way for furnishing
power for the lighting of the hotel
and will be placed in the basement
of the hotel. To it will be attached
the lighting system of the building,
and with the new plant Mr. Wagner
hopes to overcame the inconvenience
that is so often experienced due to
breaks in the city electric cervice.
In addition he will be able to sup
ply the current at a much more
reasonable cost than heretofore.
The laundry work of tbe hotel is
quite large and the proprietor feels
that the Installing of the laundry
system will enable him to handle
the work much easier and at far
less expense than fc,has been put if
in the past. The laundry will m
located in the basement of tbe hotel
and will be sufficient in size to han
dle the work of the hotel very
These improvements will make the
Wagner quite modern and up-to-date
and fully capable of handling their
own work in the laundry line as
well as having plenty of electrical
power for the lighting of the hotel
and operation of tbe electrical de
vices that are used there.

Tales of Severe Cold.
From TupiJayn Oally.
Yesterday afternoon when the re
porter was calling at the police court,
v.e found tbe ge?iinl arid veteran
judge. Michael Archer in a remin
iscent mood and by the coinforitMt
warmth of the tire the judge rel,itd
Ja few experiences in winter weultnr
which thi.- community fortunately
has not experk-nced in many yenrs.
Judge Archer when a lad of eightc-en
years came to De Moints county.
Iowa, in JRi4. and that same winter
proved one of the most severe that
was ever experienced with the tem
perature at 30 below zero for the
greater part of the time. The snow
fall was ko heavy that it was possi
ble to drive teams and wagons orer
the tops of the rail fences which
were then very numerous in that por
tion of tbe country. After coming to
Nebraska the Judge was located on
a farm near old Eight Mile Grove
and there experienced some of the
hardships of the pioneer winter. On
leaving home in the morning to drive
to town it would require all day to
travel through the snow and in one
case the Judge had a cloe call from
being lost in one of the Ftorms that
swept over the prairie. Mr. Archer
had left home with a load of hay
and had delivered his load all rii;ht
but on the way home the snow storm
blinded him so that it was impossible
to see the way and it was only when
th wind would blow a path through
the drifted snow that he was able
to reach home several houra luter
than be should and almost exhausted
by the heavy snow and exposure. In
those days tbre were little timber
in this portion of the county nnd
the snow and wind had full sweep
across the prairie and the resident
were often blockaded for days in tbelr
homes and it required a great deal of
work to get out to look alter the farm
