The members of the class, number
ing some forty-three, were seated at
the front of the auditorium and
made a very attractive appearance

bright costumes of the ladies ming

the young men made a picture that
was deeply impressive and the ear
nest manner in which the classmates
received the able sermon showed
their deep interest in this important
function of the commencement week.
The service was opened with the
processional, "Onward Christian
Soldiers," to which the members of
the class made their entrance into
the church and was followed by the
moment of silent prayer in which

MRS. H. W. SMITH IN
VERY SERIOUS SHAPE
Taken Sick Saturday Morning, the
Patient Seems to be Suffering
From a Former Illness.
From Monday's Dal!v.
The family and friends of Mrs. H.
W. Smith have been greatly worried
the past two days over the condi
tion of this lady, following a very
sudden illness that first was notic
ed on Saturday morning and which
grew in severeness until for some
time the recovery of the patient was
in doubt but fortunately Mrs. Smith
rallied so as to give more encour
agement as to her recovery and has
since shown some improvement.
Several months ago Mrs. Smith
suffered from an attack of sleeping
sickness that kept her confined to
her home for several weeks and dur
ing which time her condition baf
fled the attending physicians, and
the present attack resembles in many
respects the first as the patient was
unconscious for several hours.

At Home Saturday.
Saturday evening at his home in
this city Columbus Neff, one of the
oldest residents of Plattsmouth, pass
ed to his reward, following an ill
ness of several months duration and

Neff continued in the employ of the
Burlington in the shops, continuing
his work here until ill health com
pelled him to lay aside his labor and
spend his last days in the effort to
recover his healthy but which proved
unsuccessful. During ail of the yean;
that the family has made their home
here they have made many warm
friends by their traits of nobility ex
pressed in their dealings with their
fellow men and these friends and
neighbors share with the bereaved
wife the deep sorrow that the death
of this splendid Christian gentle
man has brought with it.
To mourn the death of Mr. Neff
there remains the wife and brother,
Frank Teippe of Burlington, Iowa,
as well as one foster brother and
three fosters sisters, Andrew Neif,

Closing Day is Well Patronized and
Everyone Seems . Very Well
Pleased with Results.
The week's stand here of the Do
minion Exposition company, was brot
to a close Saturday night with one
of the largest crowds of the entire
week present. The company seems
to have given very general satisfac
tion to the public that filled the mid
way from the opening until the close
and especially on Saturday all the
shows did a good business.
The company was one that caussd
little trouble from the general line
of followers that usually come with
attractions of this kind and aside
from a slight disturbance on the
grounds in the closing hours of the
carnival there was nothing to mar
the smoothness of the occasion.
The Legion had special police on
the Job r s well as Chief Barclay and
Sheriff Quinton being present each
evening and this aided in making the
visit here one of the most peaceful
that has characterized any of the
carnivals of the past.
