Value giving has been our aim aince this store was

QUALITY is our standard, and it is not unlike building a house upon a
rock. Sacrificing quality and allowing price to rule ultimately
crumbles the rock and the business house falls as though it had
been founded on sand. .......
The quality idea is FIXED in the public mind, one of the best

We are more than ever convinced that "price" buying is wrong,' '
especially if. the price is cheap.: You get no more than you pay
for, but you do get all you pay for when you buy known brands
of quality. .

inferior goods cheaper, they thought, but it is with pleasure we

DEATH OF TOM
PASSED AWAY AT HOSPITAL IN
LINCOLN WHERE HE HAS
BEEN A SHORT TIME.
VERY POORLY FOR SOME TIME
Mayor of Plattsmouth in 1900 and
For Many Years Head of Lou
isville Bank of Commerce.
This morning at 10 o'clock at the
hospital at Lincoln where he has
been .for the past few weeks, Thom
as Evans Parmele passed away, his
death coming at the close of an III
! ness covering several months past.
I 51nyo 0-ninff-.tr Ida hncnital at Lin
coln Mr. Parmele has been only par
tially conscious and his condition
has been gradually growing more
serious until the coming of the death
messenger to release hini from the
suffering of his bodily infirmities.
Thomas Evans Parmele was the
youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin
H. Parmele, pioneer residents of Cass
county, and was born in this city
lorty-seven years ago, and has for the
greater part of his lifetime been
closely identified with the life of
Cass county. The deceased was nam
ed in honor of Thomas Evans, old
friend and associate of the late Cal
vin Parmele. .and the young man on
emerging from his school work, fol
lowing the footsteps of his godfath
er, entered on a career along the
lines of banking and was for a great
many years in charge of the Bank
of Commerce at Louisville, later re
tiring to look after land interests in
the western part of the state.
Politically Mr. Parmele has been
identified with the democratic party
and was In 1900 elected mayor of
Plattsmouth on this ticket and serv
ed for two in this capacity, retiring
from office when he located at Louis
ville. Several times he has followed
the call to "the service and assisted
his party in political campaigns.
Mr. Parmele was married some
twenty years ago to Miss Nellie O'
Rourke and who with the three child
ren. John Calvin, Mary Catherine
and Ruth, remain to share the grief
that his death has brought. He also
leaves the aged mother, Mrs. C. H.
Parmele, and a sister, Mrs. Nellie
Agnew of this city, and another sis
ter, Mrs. S. H. Atwood residing at
Washington, D. C, one' brother, C.
C. ' Parmele, residing in this ?ity.
' Owing to the aHsence of the mem
bers of the famtly'at Lincoln at the
bedside of Mr. ' Parmele there his
been no arrangements made as to
the funeral service, but -the body
will undoubtedly 'be brought back to
the old home here for interment.
' m their 'sorrow the family will
have the sympathy of 'the many
friends in this, their hour of deep
est grief. '

MEETS WITH APPROVAL
The proposition, of the city gov
ernment to issue optional instead oi
term bonds to pay the cost of p.iv
Ing. curbing, and. gutterini in dis
trict No. 21, seems to bo one that
has 'the approval of the large major
ity of , the residents of the district
and the, public at large. Under this
plan the city can take up the bonds
when they have the money availab'e
and this will permit the city to li
quidate the bonds more rapidly Un
der the first plan proposed jl.l-yo
could be retired each year and if the
city had the funds on hand they
would have to invest or carry them
over the life of the bonds and this
would result in a much greater cost
to the city.

The deceased was born and raised
In Tazwell county, Va., and has in
recent years resided In Oregon, where
he has a son, P. . Shrader, living
The accident befell Mr. Shrader
on February 15th and his death oc
curred on March 9th. To many of the
residents of the county Mr. Shrader
will be well remembered having vis
ited here quite often with his broth
ers and also making business trips
In speaking of the accident and
death the Enterprise says:

aged 60, died at the Hold Rosary

only necessary to amputate one hand

that circulation could 'be restored to

of blood poisoning appeared and it
was decided very necessary to ampu

operation, the suffering man died a

ELECTION WILL BE QUIET
The municipal election this year
will be as calm and peaceful as the
moat pacific citizen could wish, as
the city ticket named last Wednes
day has no opposition at the polls
and in only two wards of the city
has there been any signs of the erup
tion in the political field. In the
fourth ward Councilman Brittain
and A. R. Johnson are to tangle and
in the fifth ward Councilman Mauer
will be opposed by L. E. Vroman and
these two battles promise a colorful
feature of the spring campaign. For
several days the report was strong
that there would be a petition ticket
filed for other city offices but this
seems to have failed to materialize
as no candidate could be found that
desired to oppose Mayor Carl A.
Johnson. This is in keeping with the
idea of the citiztns ticket which was
to eliminate the necessity for heated
