MRS. JOHN LUTZ IMPROVING
From Saturday's Daily
Mrs. John Lutz who has had so long a siege with the Influenza, followed by double pneumonia, and then by trouble with her heart is feeling considerable better, and has the promise of overcoming all the troubles and getting well again. Mrs. Lutz, during the last day or so, has been able to sit up and to eat some, and promised by her nurse that she would be allowed to go out on the porch for a short time. Mrs. Lutz has surely put up a good fight with the combination of diseases, and is now winning out. Her many friends in this city are also well pleased to know of her improved condition.

HENRY DEWEY ZUCKWEILER HAS ARRIVED.
From Friday's Daily.
The announcement of his arrival
has reached this office this morning, although he made his
appearance, some two weeks since, arriving at the home of his
parents, Mr. And Mrs. Dewey Zuckweiler, near Miller, South Dakota, on
November first. You can imagine the joy in the household of the
parents. Of course, Grandfather and grandmother Henry Zuckweiler
simply left their home and went to the home where the little heir
was. All are doing nicely, and the young man who weighted seven and
one-half pounds, is the light of the home.

LESTER VROMAN RETURNS.
From Friday's Daily.
Lester Vroman, who has been stationed at Camp Zachary Taylor in Kentucky, for the past four or five months, was mustered out of the service and returned home this morning. Lester is a fine looking young man, and presents still a better appearance in his natty uniform. He was a good worker, and the way in which he is costumed makes him look as though he had grown both taller and broader. He will soon be digging into the activities of civil life.
Note by descendant, Thomas York, written in 2002:
My father was buying a house in Plattsmouth, but lost it, I think when the Burlington went on strike, maybe around 1920, so he moved to Chicago. His sister and her husband, Helen York Vroman and Eugene 'Tine' Vroman stayed in Plattsmouth and raised their family.

From Saturday’s Daily.
Mrs. Frank Cummins, who has been so seriously ill for the past five weeks at her home in this city, has been showing signs of improvement for the past few days. She has been suffering with a serious attack of erysipelas, and almost continually her fever has been raging up near 104 for the five weeks of her illness, but at this time the fever has been reported broken, and the patient seems to be improving. This will certainly be good news to Mrs. Cummins’ many friends who have hourly waited for this favorable change in her condition.
