members of the Epworth League of
the Methodist church on the law,n of
the church. The members of the
gathering enjoyed games of all kinds

PROVING A SPLEN
Weekly Offerings of Elks' Band Gives
Public an Unusual Treat in
a Musical Way.
The concerts that are offered each
Wednesday evening at Garfield park
by the Elks band are growing in
popularity and while only the second
concert of the season has been given
they are being looked forward to by
the lovers of real music in the city.
The programs are exceptionally well
selected and combine a number of
the high class standard numbers as
well as the tuneful melodies of the
musical comedies and a few of the
snappy marches and fox trots as well
as one of the classic selections. One
feature that has been remarked upon
is the numbers given by the way of
contrast, and which includes one of
the late jazzy tunes as well as one
of the high clas musical numbers.
The idea is a very pleasing one and
gives attendants at the concert a di
rect comparison of the two styles of
The band has beei? practicing hard
all winter and their work is shown
in the great improvement of the past
year and the organization is one that
the city can feel a pardonable pride
in as one of the best bands in this
portion of the state.

George F. Dovey of this city has
returned to Chicago where he is ex

employ of Morris Whiting, one of
the leading banking and trust com
pany magnates of that city. Mr.
Whiting is the head of the Boule
vard bank as well as interested in
a number of other banks and trust
companies and the position secured
by Mr. Dovey is one that will offtr
him a deserved promotion in the
course of his service. Mr. Dovey is a
graduate of the schools here and has
been attending the University of
Nebraska and is a young man of
more than usual brightness and abil
ity and in his work in Chicago
should prove a very valuable man.

Whiting, an old time engineer on
the Burlington, and who worked
here prior to 1SSS and the family
after that removed to the east where

Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Edna

tored to Lincoln and were quietly
married by the county judge. Only
her sister, Mrs. A. J. Trimble ana
her husband, were present witnesses.
The newly weds returned to Eagle

take the train at Alvo for their new
home at Union. 111., where the groom
will engage in farming.
The bride is well known to our
readers, having lived here for the
greater part of her life, was the
daughter of the late C. H. Hudson,
and the widow of the late Travis
Crabtree, who died about seven years
ago. We are not so well acquainted
with the groom, but he has the ap
pearance of being an industrious,
steady, well intent ioned man, and
we have heard nothing but good re
ports of him. The Beacon wishes
them happiness and prosperity.

Trenton, Neb., July 26. Wheat
from the pool of the Nebraska Wheat
Growers' association is being ship

total pool now amounts to about 1,
000,000 bushels, altho organizers are
still in the field and a considerably
larger amount is expected before the
end of the present crop movement.
Sales agreements to care for the
1922 season have been made with
the Northeast Wheat Growers' asso

is the co-operative organization
which handles the pools in the Pa

bushels from North Dakota.

Plenty of "Amperage" in the Storage
Batteries of the City to Turn
Over the Merchandise.
From Saturday's lalljr
The powerful 100 amperage hour
storage batteries have nothing on
Plattsmouth merchants when it
comes to turning over the "self
starters." For there's that many
hours in the self ttarter campaign
carried on in connection with Platts
mouth's first big community clear
This morning when the sale was
opened up the Belf starters were all
working in great shape, as they wiil
continue to do throughout the seven
days of clean-up selling.
The self starters of the day were
Rebal's 50c brooms for 29c: dress
sox worth 20c for 8c, and beef roasts
at 13c per pound.
Monday's list of "starters" is of
equal attractiveness, and so on thru
out the week, ending up with Ford
day on Saturday, when in addition
to the "starters," there will be nu
merous prizes offered to thofe who
drive the universal car.
It was very pleasing to the pcore
of merchants associated together in
putting on this sale, to see it start
off so well and the alertness of the
public in snapping up the bargains
bespeaks the fact that a community
clearance of this kind is appreciated
by the patrons.
It is but reasonable to expect a
merchant would . prefer closing out
broken lots of seasonable merchan
dise rather than carry them over to
another season, and this is the one
big idea of this sale. Of course
there are reduced prices on many
articles for which there is a year
'round demand, but not so marked
as in the case of the seasonable
goods and the "starters," which are
of course calculated to be interest
arousers in the sale.
Too much Btress cannot be laid
on the Importance of the buying
public's response to this tale. Many
real bargains will be found in the
various ads which appear again in
todays Journal. Consulting the list
of prices one can save a great deal
of money in all lines of goods from,
clothing to groceries and at the
same time know he has gotten regu
lar stock merchandise, which is often
not the case with city store sales of
this kind, when vast quantities of
cheap goods are shipped in and un
loaded on an unsuspecting public.
If the country merchant were to
practice the same methods of du
plicity followed by many of the city
stores, who depend on an ever-chang-
