members of the order gathered at the
office of Harry Smith early in the
evening and from there proceeded to
the hotel where they quietly entered
and came on the guest of honor un
expectedly and completely surprised
The earlier part of the evening
was spent in the preparation of a
book of verses and suggestions to
the bride from the different members
of the party and each of the forty
five members present had some ad
vice or suggestion to offer to the
newly weds and which furnished
considerable amusement :'nd pleasure.
Mrs. William Cowles on behalf of the
camp expressed the appreciation
rhat the membership felt toward the
bride who has served as recorder for
the past few vears and been one of
the leading workers in the order.
Mrs. Jennie TuK-ne also offered a
few remarks of suggestion and ad
vice that afforded much pleasure.
The speeches were made at the
bainjuet table in the dining room of
the hotel and which had been es
pecially arranged for the occasion
and with the tasteful decorations of
roses of the summer season and can
dles made a very pleasing setting.
Mrs. H. W. Smith presided as
toast mistress of the gathering and in
behalf of the camp presented the
bride with a very handsome sterling
silver sugar and creamer as a tes
timonial of the esteem of the mem
bers of the order.

Judge Barnes was born in Ashta
bula county, Ohio, in 1S4C. and after
four years of service in the civil war
he came to Nebraska. He took a
homestead near I'onca in 1S71
taught school, studied law and was
admitted to the bar. He was dis
trict attorney for a term, and then
district judge for six years. He was
named a member of the supreme
court commission in 1902, and elect
ed supreme judge in 1905. He
served twelve years on the bench
and finished his career as a member
of the attorney general's staff.
The resolutions pay tribute to the
strong personal characteristics of the
deceased, praise him as a just and
learned judge helpful to his associ
ates and a man who had rendered
valuable services to the common
wealth. His life was a blessing and
his memory will ever be an unfail
ing joy to his family, the commun
ity, his associates and the people of
the state. His death is described as
a grievous loss to the state, to which
he had given the full strength of his
powers. The bar has lost an active,
able and upright judge and the com
monwealth a loyal, devoted and use
ful judge and citizen.
Mr. Tyler, who was his law part
ner for a time, said he was a man
who bore malice to no one, and never
was known to speak ill of any one.
He "was proud of his profession, but
cared little for its emoluments. He
paid tribuVi o his unusu l clearness
of intellect aud ability to grasp le
Judge Allen said he first met him
as a youth at Fredericksburg, la.,
just after both had come out of the
wiar. He praised him as a man of
just judgment and excellence as a
lawyer, and as one who had helped
shape the policies of the state. He
believed in the immortality that
thinking men admitted comprised
the future of man, and quoted Scrip
ture to Justify that belief.
Justices Letton and Morrissey
spoke briefly of their association with
Judge Barnes, and paid tribute to
his qualities of Intellect and heart.

tf sw. R. C. KENNEDY. '
ing, one oi ine om lime residents or
this city, came in for a short visit
here and to review the once familiar
scenes where he had spent his boy
hood days and where he had taken
his first business experience. Mr.
Stocking when a young man forty
years ago entered the employe of
C. E. Wescott in this city, Mr. Wes
cott himself having just recently ar
rived from Indiana at that time and
embarked in the clothing business
and it was under his training that
Mr. Stocking developed his tact and
ability in the clothing business.
He removed from Plattsmouth some
thirty-six years ago and located in
Independence. Iowa, where he estab
lished his own clothing business and
has won a great success in his line
of business. Mr. Stocking now has
one of the largest retail clothing
stores in northeastern Iowa and has
secured a very substantial fortune
as the result of his efforts and is
now in a position to enjoy his de
clining years in comfort.
While in the city Mr. Stocking was
the guest at the homes of C. C. and
E. II. Wescott, sons of his old time
employer and whom he knew as boys
years ago in the old town. The viit
was one most thoroughly enjoyed by
all of the Wescott family and in the
exchange of many stories of old times
the members of the family and their
friend found much pleasure.
The ladies employed at the M. E.
Smith shirt factory in this city en
joyed a very pleasant time Saturday
evening at a delightful picnic party
held along the banks of the old Mis
souri river and in the vicinity of the

The party was convoyed to the

WILL UNDERGO OPERATION
It is expected to operate on Fath
er M. A. Shine, rector of the St.
John's Catholic church, today at the
St. Catherine's hospital in Omaha,
where he has been for the past two
weeks. Father Shine has had a se
vere attack of appendicitis, tut ow
ing to his extremely weakened con
dition it was not thought advisable
at first to perform the operation, but
the patient has since shown much
more strength and has decided that
it would be best to have the oper
ation performed in order to assure
permanent relief from his sufferings.

FINE BABY BOY
Last evening the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Floyd Thackery was gladdened
by the arrival of a fine nine-pound
baby boy who is in the pink of con
dition and with the mother is doing
nicely. The occasion has of course
brought much happiness to the fath
er and the other relatives and friends.
The citizens of Plattsmouth hold
in their hearts a warm spot for the
kindly members of the Masonic Home
family and the splendid men and
women who are spending life's de
