READY FOR WAR
ON THE RATS AND
MICE OF THE CITY
This Part of Clean Up Week is Im
portant and J. C. Brit tain Se
- enres Valuable Hints.
In the extermination of the rat
pest as a part of the clean up cam
paign the residents of the city who
have suffered through the depreda
tions of these unwelcome visitors,
are growing much interested. Coun
cilman Jack Brittain is head of this
committee In the campaign and has
looked over the work of the Omaha
health department in the campaign
in that city and finds that they have
made great progress in the handling
of the rat question.
The Omaha authorities have found
that the following receipt is the
most effective in getting rid of rats
with the most satisfactory results:
One of the cheapest and most ef
fectivfl poisons for rats and mice is
barium carbonate. This mineral has
the advantage of being without taste
or smell. It has a corrosive action
on the mucous lining of the stomach
an dis dangerous to larger animals
if taken in sufficient quantity. In
the small doses fed to rats and mice
it would be harmless to domestic an
imals. Its action upon rats is slow
and if exit is possible the animals
usually leave the premises in search
of water. For this reason the poison
may frequently, though not always,
be used in houses without disagree
Barium carbonate may be fed in
the form of dough composed of four
parts of meal or flour and one part
of the mineral. A more convenient
bait is ordinary oatmeal with about
one-eighth of its bulk of the mineral
mixed with water into a stiff dough.
A third plan is to spread the barium
carbonate upon fish, toasted bread
(moistened) or ordinary bread and
butter. The prepared bait should be
placed in rat runs, about a teaspoon
ful at a place. If a single applica
tion of the poison fails to kill or
drive away all rats from the prem
ises it should be repeated with a
change of bait.

WRITES TO OLD FRIENDS
The Journal has received a letter
from William Neville, one of the
well known old timers of Platts
mouth and Cass county, and who is
located at Chehalss, Washington,
and in which Mr. Neville renews his
subscription to the Old Reliable and
as well sends greetings to the old
friends In this city. Mr. Neville was
attracted by the appearance of. an
article in the Journal relative to the
Plattsmouth Sporting club, an or
ganization of several years ago. Mr.
Neville is one of the few remaining
members of the organization and
states that he still has the old double
barrel shot gun with which he used
to make the records at the club
meets and he states that he still gets
out occasionally and shoots with the
younger men and has been able to
hold his gun in competition with
the other shots of his present home.

DISTRICT 1. 0.
0. F. MEETING
A LARGE ONE
COMMITTEE IN CHARGE HAVE
ARRANGED A VERY ELAB
BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT
From Wednesdays r?aUy.
One of the greatest gatherings of
the members of the I. O. O. F. that
has been held in this part of the
state has been scheduled for next
Saturday in this city when Platte
lodge No. 7 of Plattsmouth are the
hosts to the other lodges in this dis
trict No. 7 1 The committee in charge
of the event have been working hard
on the proposition and have arrang
ed a program that will provide some
thing of the greatest interest for the
visiting brothers of the order from
the start to the finish of the gath
ering. The district is composed of the
various lodges of the county and
will include Weeping Water, Avoca,
Greenwood, Nehawka, Louisville and
Elmwood as well as Plattsmouth.
The meeting will convene at 2 o'
clock Saturday afternoon at the
lodge rooms in the I. O. O. F. build
ing on lower Main street and will
be opened by the grand lodge offi
cers and will be folowed by a school
in instruction conducted by the
grand master and others of the
grand lodge officers of the state who
will be present at the meeting. From
4 to 5 o'clock the third degree of
the order will be conferred by the
staff of Omaha lodge No. 2, in their
usual impresive and snappy manner.
At the close of the lodge work at
the hall the representatives will ad
journ to the M. W. A. hall on sixth
and Pearl streets where the ladies
of the Bud of Promise lodge No. 40,
Rebekahs, will serve the banquet to
the Odd Fellows and their guests.
The ladies of this order have long
been famous for their enjoyable ban
quets and this event will be no ex
ception to the rule.
In the evening the public is in
vited to join in the meeting to be
held at the Coates hall and for which
a very elaborate program has been
arranged by the committee. The
gathering will open with the sing
ing of "America" by the audience
led by the Presbyterian quartet and
will be followed by the address of
welcome delivered by Mayor C. A.
Johnson. District Deputy Grand
Master C. G. Bailey of Elmwood will
make the response to the welcome
of the city executive and these will
constitute the formal opening of the
very interesting program. Miss Thel
ma' Hudson will sing "I Shall Meet
You." and this will be followed by
the address of Grand Master Lew F.
Etter of Omaha who speaks on "Odd
fellowship and Oddfellow Home."
The male quartet composed of Messrs
Cloidt, McClusky, Westover and
Minor, will give one of their excel
lent numbers and will be followed
by Grand Patriarch J. W. Brown
who speaks on "Patriarchal Oddfel
lowship." and Miss Hazel Clugy.
who will give a reading, "Camera
Clicks," which she was given the
gold medal for at the declamatory
contest held recently in Omaha. The
Rebekahs will be represented on the
program by Secretary Emma Talbot
who speaks on "Rebekah Oddfellow
ship." Two of the pleasing musical
numbers will be the violin solo, "Le
gends," by Bohm, played by Mrs. A.
D. Caldwell, as well as a vocal solo
by Edna Marshall Eaton. Mrs. Chris
tine Coughlin , will be the accom
panist for the two ladies. Past Grand
Master Sam Greenleaf of Omaha will
speak on "Fraternity" and will be
followed by a musical offering by
the quartet and orchestra. The eve
ning program will close with an ex
hibition drill by the members of Om
aha canton, under the command of
Brig. Gen. James H. Short of this
The evening will close with a
dance for the general public at the
On the first day of March, 1920,
over two years ago, this theatre de
cided upon a one price policy for all
productions, large or small. During
that time we think you will agree
with us Ave have shown some of the
biggest of them at prices of admis
sion which you could not find in any
other theatre in the United States.
It has been our desire to stay with
this policy indefinitely, even tho
we barely made expenses on some
of the big ones. During the past
year, however, we have been asked
time and again by many of our pat
rons to show D. W. Griffith's master
piece, "Way Down East." We have
been anxious to do as our patrons
demanded, but have been unable to
secure a contract from the produc
ers that would enable us to show
this stupendous photoplay at our
regular admission. We- have finally
signed a contract for this picture
but at such a high figure that we
will be compelled to charge 25c for
children and 50c for adults includ
ing war tax and show it four nights.
If we have a large attendance each
of the four nights we will be able
to have a small profit left for our
We trust that our patrons will
realize that this production is well
worth the extra admission as many
of you no doubt have paid two or
three times the above amounts to
see it in Omaha. We, ourselves, paid
$1.65 per seat to see it.
"Way Down East" Is without a
doubt the biggest picture the mas
ter of the screen, D. W. Griffith, has
made since "The Birth of a Nation."
It is eleven reels in length and takes
at least two and a half hours to
The dates of showing "Way Down
East" will be announced in the near
future. Watch for them.
