EVERS NOTES 32ND YEAR AS MASONIC HOME SUPERVISOR
William "Bill" Evers, superintendent of the Nebraska Masonic Home at
Plattsmouth, received recognition from employees at the home Tuesday, in recognition of his 32 years of service at the home.
In honor of Mr. Evers' service, employees at the home presented Mr. and Mrs. Evers with a basket of flowers. They also received
a lazy-susan dish from infirmary employees. Evers was named superintendent of the home in 1920.
Active in Masonic affairs, he has been a past master, past high priest and past commander of Plattsmouth Lodge No. 6, A.F. & A.M.,
Royal Arch Masons and Knights Templar at Plattsmouth and a past patron of the Eastern Star. He has also held offices in the Grand Lodge of Nebraska.
Mrs. Nickel used a rawhide across the face of a man named Sherman, at Omaha last week. Sherman had indulged in slanderous reporst about Mrs. Nickel, and she took this method of punshing him.
We learn from Stephen Hobson, Esq., that a Christmas Tree will be exhibited at the Mt. Pleasant M. E. Church on Christmas evening.

Dr. Marvin, of Nebraska, was arrested in this city last Sunday by Sheriff Johnson, assisted by Sheriff Grebe, of Omaha. The doctor is charged with having caused the death of a girl from Wood River, Nebraska, while attempting to produce an abortion.
The Omaha papers are quite severe on Marvin, and claim that he left there with the intention of fleeing from justice. Marvin denies and such intention, and asks that the judgement of the public be suspended until the whole of the facts are produced.
He claims that the girl had taken medicine before he was called, and that he did nothing more than assist in a result which was already inevitable. We await the result of any investigation before expressing any opinion.
THE MARVIN CASE
The Omaha papers contain the evidence before the Coroner's jury in the above case, which shows beyond doubt that Marvin produced the abortion, and that the girl, whose name was Eliza Oliver, came to her death in consequence thereof.
It also appears that a man named Sam. Boyd was interested in her case, and spoke of her to parties as his wife. The verdict of the Coroner's jury was that "the said Eliza Oliver came to her death from the effects of an abortion, and that such abortion was produced by Geo. W. Marvin"
Dr. Martin was confirmed in jail after being arrested here and his preliminary examination was fixed for today.
Marshall has those new Yale lock boxes in place now, and the rush for them is lively. If you want one in a good location you should speak quick. The office has been rearranged, with boxes on each side and a dozen extra large drawers added with Yale locks, besides the patent boxes.
Cap. is bound to keep the Plattsmouth P.O. up to the times. -- The first time we ever saw Marshall's beaming countenance it was behind a couple dozen of rude boxes in the little room now occupied by Dr. G.H. Black, where he dispensed the honors of the Plattsmouth P.O. with the same pleasant smile as the present.
He has attended closely to the wants of the people, and there is probably no man in the State who has given such general satisfaction in a public office as has Capt. J.W. Marshall.
