that ,tha following week, accompanied by
Ills wife and daughter, he Intended to

looking after business matter. . 8lnce
then I have not heard from him. but I
have every reason to believe that he

Plamondon, whose name appears among
those whom were lost when the Lusi
tania waa aunk at sea."
Mr. Plamondon waa on of the wealthy

at different time invested considerable
money her, purlng the last five, or
alx years he frequently visited Omaha
and always expressed great confidence
In tta future. He waa about W year of

yesterday, the affair being a benefit for
the Omaha mall carrier, who will add
their share of the receipts to the fund

of their national convention.
Both matinee and evening concert
Wore listened to by large audiences, who
were regaled with the best of Mr. Sousa
musicianship. One quality of the Sousa

where to find the musie that Is good and

of "Tlpperary" was loudly applauded.
