From Monday's Dally
Strenuous business conditions dur

J thankful of the fact that we still
J have plenty of sand, a mighty good
product to gain our footing and re

The new Lyman Richey Sand pits,
just north of this city have been
running at high capacity during the
past few weeks, and from their pres
ent output, one might think they
were about up to their limit, but
tfiis is not true. Double shifts are
now running, twelve hours each, at
the one pit, and they are shipping
out from 40 to 50 every twenty-four
hours, and Mr. Taylor, superintend
ent of the pits, says that the quality
of this sand is the very best he has
ever loaded. Most all of the entire
output is now being shipped into the
state of Iowa for their new paved
The second plant is now being in

DISGUSTED WITH CHICKENS
From Monday's Dall
Searl S. Davis. locaT real estate
man. has in the past been dabbling
to some extent in chickens, hoping
from the array of large and hand
some Huff Orpington hens to de
rive eggs sufficient to assist in giv
ing the family a supply of fresh eggs
for their household needs.
The first disaster that shook the
faith of Mr. Davis and his family in
the chicken business was when the
horde of half tamed dogs that rove
over the city, visited the Davis hen
nery and killed three of the hens am!
made their escape.
The second and, we hope, the last
chapter of the story, occurred some
time Sunday while the Davis family
was at Lincoln, as they discovered
this morning on visiting the hen
house that some chicken thief had
completed the destruction that
dogs had started and that the
Orpingtons were no more, being
en away by the hen roost raiders.
The full extent of the Davis hen
nery is now the Bantam chicken, the
property of the two small boys of the
family, and who are on the watch to
protect their property.

Th'' ladies then opened their for

committee heads were given. What
the ladies have done in the way of
community and civic activities have
passed with but little comment but
in hearing the various reports of the
activity of the club one was impress
ed with the fact what a really valu

the community and what they are
doing for a bigger and a far bet
The report of the treasurer, Mrs.
W. L. Heinrich. disclosed the ' fact
that the club has in the past year re
ceived from various activities,
$563. SI and have expended some
$497.12. a great deal of this being
in permanent advantage to the com

The ladies have arranged and giv

have presented the city high school
n fine series of slides and lantern to
be used in the chemistry department
of the school, they have arranged for

improvement in urging that the un

thoroughfares of the city.
Mrs. A. D. Caldwell, one of the
gifted musicians of the city and also

be a member of the chamber ;f coin
mere and that every lady that was
interested in the development of the
city be enrolled in the Woman's club,
that thmutrh the two organizations
a great deal of good could be accomp

were prepared along lines of var

to the needs of the communities were
placed in the hands of the local club.

as after all the efforts of women in
other lines were small compared to
the great tasks of the home. The
governmental problem? and th'
mounting crime wave w re also
touched upon i:i the department of
law observance, the fact that the
greatest number of criminals were
mere youths was a matter of concern
for the motherhood of the countiy.
The sustaining of the prohibition
movement was also urged by the

gave a few remarks on the outlook
for the coming year, complimenting
Mrs. Turpin on the high standard
that she had set for the past year.
One of the goals of the year would
be that every woman in Plattsmouth
should be invited to be a member of
this club, the dub gave the oppor
tunity for the middle aged lady or
one out of the school age to secure
a college education in the study
courses. The second great goal of
the club was to find out what the
general federation stood for and that
the club members should not be satis
fied to accept the endorsement of the
club to measures but to study and
find out for themselves what the
measures really mant and whether
or not they were in favor of them.
At the close of the meeting the
mebers adjourned until the first
