Knows Who Stole Robe.
With true detective ability,
who had a robe stolen from their
automobile a few weeks ago, kept
the matter quiet until they have at
last located the thief and they are
now in a position to deal with the
culpret, and are, on account of the
family of the offender, willing to
give the one who took it an oppor
tunity to return it to its rightful
owner. Otherwise a warrant will
be sworn out and the county sheriff
will be sent for the robe and the one
who stole it as well. You had bet
ter get in the clear while the getting
is good, for if you don't, it will not
bo long until the officer will be
knocking at your door.
Need Water Service Also.
A few of the more progressive cit
izens of Murdock have been behind
the electric lighting proposition, and
truly they have a vision of a better
city in the future. This was demon
strated by the fact that if the elec
tric lights had been burning in the
home of Mr. and Mrs. McHugh, the
gas lamp would not have been taken
to look for a book which was wanted
and the fire would have not occurred.
Again had Murdock had a water sys
tem the fire could have been extin
guished in its incipiency and the
subsequent loss been averted. It
seems a strange thing that after the
boosting for the lights, that Mr.
McHugh and family should suffer
their loss just on the evening of the
installation of the long desired ser
departed, wishing this young man
many more such happy events.

the study of history easy as well as
making it a day in honor of the poet.
Held Box Social.
Many of the young people from
Murdock attended the box social at
Rose Valley last week and enjoyed
the occasion greatly. The school is
conducted by Miss Adele Peters and
the object of the social besides the
general good time it provided, was
the improvement wheih is given the
students who took part in the excel
lent program and the linancial end
of the matter, which netted the $"5
for furnishin gthe school with the
little things which are not provided
by the board, and are necessary for
the best results of study.

Appreciates the Friendships.
We have realized that we have
many friends in Murdock and it has
been a pleasure to enjoy these kindly
relations, but not until the fire had
destroyed our home last week, when
the many and unstinted sacrifices,
all Murdock worked to their utmost
to extinguish the fire and save what
was possible of the effects of our
home. Not until all these kindly
manifestations and the services ren
dered, did we realize the true loy
alty of the towns people. Wearc
not insensible to these acts of true
friendship and wish to say we surely
appreciate the assistance rendered,
and more the kindly feelings which
prompted the service.

The measure is S. F. 1S5. If it
becomes a law it will be unlawful
for arKv one to advertise stills or for
mulas for the making of intoxicating

Provision is made to curb the
unlawful sale of lemon or other ex

taste that he would drink such pre
parations for the purpose of becoming
intoxicated. So the bill fixes it so
that if a man is sent up town to buy
d little of lemon extract or a bottle
of perfume he will not rush into his
avorite bowling alley, pool hall, place
of amusement or soft drink parlor
It is declared unlawful to sell such
compounds in these places.
Another provision relates to costs
in prosecutions for possession of in
toxicants. It makes it possible for
the courts to charge up to the de
fendant the price, which an officer
of the law paid for a sample of the
wet goods in question, also costs for
drayageand like expenses in the ease.
In the matter of the manufacture

It is also provided that a physician

handsome home of Mrs. George O.
Dovey on North Sixth street, which
was very largely attended by the
music lovers of the city to enjoy the
artistic and charmingly arranged
program offered by Plattsmouth mu
sicians. The program was opened with a
very pleasing piano number by Miss
Marvel Whittiker and was followed
by a vocal trio consisting of Misses
Helen Pontius, Fae Chase and Clara
Mae Morgan. A vocal duet by Edith
Farley and Catherine Schneider also
added to the beauty of the opening
portion of the program. Mrs. Chris
tine Coughlin, one of the talented
pianoists of the city, offered a very
beautiful selection and was followed
by Mrs. A. J. - Beeson with one of
her always pleasing readings, given
in her usual gifted manner. Miss
Thelma Hudson, one of the young
vocalists of the city, gave a pleas
ing solo and was followed by a violin
solo by Mrs. A. I). Caldwell, which
in its artistic rendition made a deep
impression on the auditors. The
closing number was a piano selection
by "Irs. Lillian Freeman, who in "her
number displayed great artisticness
and beauty of rendition that was
enjoyed by all of the party.
The ladies of the society at an ap

The Plattsmouth high school bas
ket ball team that journey up to Ben
son yesterday afternoon to meet the
team of the schooy of that city last
nigt h.returned home minus the vic
tory and with reports of the manner
in which the referee had trampled
on their rights and privileges in a
more ruthless manner than even the
8th amendment.
The score was 41 to 21 when the
final whistle was blown and was
marked throughout with more or les3
trouble between the players and the
official of the game. In the early
portion of the contest the referee
made his sympathies clear when he
hung three foul3 on Schneider, one
of the effective players of the locals
and put the player out of the game
and forcing the use of a substitute
in the battle which was waging be
tween the two teams.
From the reports the Plattsmouth
boys were well able to deal with the
Bensonites, but their support from
the official enabled them to get the
best of ,the final argument and our
warriors of the baskets returned
home in defeat and in not the best
of humor over the treatment, received
