MEMBERS OF KNIGHTS AND LA
DIES OF SECURITY OBSERVE
The members of the Knights and
Ladies of Security lodge of this city
held a very pleasant observance of
their twenty-fifth anniversary last
evening at the lodge rooms in the
Wocdman building and which was
quite largely attended by the mem
bership and including a large num
ber of the charter members of the
lodge, who are still residing in this
city and vicinity.
The occasion was entirely inform
al and the enjoyment and pleasure
of the members was given full sway
in the evening of entertainment pro
vided for them which consisted of
several interesting numbers on the
piano by Misses Edith and Helen
Farley as well as recitations by Miss
Fern Xiel and Miss Jennie Windham,
while Miss Honor Seybert also added
to the delights of the occasion with
several cf her pleasing piano num
bers and who also presided at the
piano during the dance that fol
lowed. Hon. R. B. Windham, president
of the lodge and also one of the
charter members, gave a few appro
priate remarks suited to the occa
sion and covering the work of the
order in the nation and state and
particularly of the Plattsmouth
lodge which is in excellent condi
tion and which at the present time
has a membership of some 240 per
sons. The Knights and Ladies of Secur
ity have in their twenty-five years
of existence enjoyed remarkable
success among the fraternal orders
of the city and have always had
a large membership but it is hoped
during the coming year to make the
membership even larger and the
mark of the order has been set at
300 for the end of the year.
At the close of the evening the
members of the party were treated
to very enjoyable refreshments that
were very much enjoyed by all of
the large number present.
ZEDELER QUINTETTE "
!7oed Organization Has Popularized
Musio of the Masters At High
School, Wednesday, March 9
The Zedeler Quintette, which is to
appear here on the evening of Wed
nesday, March 9th. at the high
school auditorium, is a company of
brilliant artit3 which correctly in
'erprets the music of the masters. It
is the one organization now doing
public work which has fearlessly
eliminated all so-called popular num
bers from its programs in spite of
the fact that the present day and age
is the era of so-called "jazz."
NIccali Zedeler, the director of this
noted quintette, carried cut an ideal
in the organization of this company.
He implicitly believed that the mass
es really love good music, and he has
shown conclusively that the plain,
common, everyday people really do
appreciate the best in music. He
has gathered a company of five very
Mr. Zedeler, who formerly was
cello soloist of the Stockholm, Swe
den Symphony Orchestra and later
with the Bendix New York Symphony
Orchestra, is one of the best known
cellists of the day. He insists cn a
high standard in the programs of his
company. A combination of violin,
cello, piano and a specially construct
ed reed organ is used to obtain sym
phonic effects never before heard in
the work of so small a company. Mu
sical critics are constantly amazed
with the volume and character of the
numbers offered by the Zedelers. The
members of this organization are in
addition to Mr. Zedeler, Salvador
Sala, the young Spanish violinist,
Ieador Karon, a young Russian artist
of the violin. Miss Ella Portune, so
loist, and Miriam Zedeler, accompan

GETTING WORK ON
Brick Masxns Getting Preliminary
Start on the Warga Building on
Upper Main Street.
In the last two days there has been
a great progress made in the prelim
inary work on the building that Jess
F. Warga is putting up to replace
the structure that was burned down
on New Years night.
It has required some time to re
move the wreckage and debris from
the site of the building and ah;o for
the securing of the material that was
necessary in the construction of the
building, but since Monday the brick
layers have been on the job and have
the first part of the foundation well
The new building is to be erected
under the supervision of Charles P.
Richards, whose reputation as a
builder is well known in the com
munity and both Mr. Richards and
Mr. Warga are busy on the final plans
that will make the building one of
the most attractive in t lie city. It
is to consist of two stories and the
basement and will bo equipped in a
thorough modern manner.
Oa the first floor of the building
Mr. Warga will have his sale rooms
for 'tis stock of pluming and electri
cal fixtures with the work room in the
rear and which will be thoroughly
up-to-date. The interior of the store
will be finished in white tiling and
make a very attractive appearance
as well as being perfectly fireproof.
The second floor of the building
will be occupied by John P. Sattler
with his undertaking parlors and a
specially constructed chapel will be
installed where services may be held
for the dead if desired and this will
be furnished in the most modern man
ner. The remainder of the second
floor will be devoted to the work
room of Mr. Fattier and storage.
The new building will have a
frontage of twenty-two feet and ex
tend back for 100 feet and will make
one of the bect buildings in the city
when it is completed.
The owner of the building is very
anxipus to have the structure com
pleted as the present quarters are
badly cramped and holds back much
of the expansion of the stcok.
