An Ancient Newspaper
      Phil SAUTER, the well known harness maker, is the proud possessor of a newspaper 169 years old. It is entitled the New England Weekly Journal and was published in the city of Boston under date of April 28th, 1728. It is in excellent preservation, the printing being very clear, and the paper quite clean and free from discoloration. The type is the early English style, and somewhat difficult to read. The most conspicuous items are under the head of News from England, but which was nearly two months old.
      Notices of slaves for sale, and descriptions of slaves having run away partly fill the paper which is only a single sheet. There was only one copy like it at the worlds fair, and Mr. Sauter intends to have his copy fraimed [sic] and exhibit it at the trans-Mississippi exposition next year.

Merle Parmele drowns. Top of article cut off.

      The young man had gone to the farm from this city at an early hour this morning and the drowning occurred shortly after 11 o'clock, and it was after 12:30 that the body was brought home by the members of the rescue party from this city.
      James Jones, the friend of Mr. Parmele, who was with him at the time of the unfortunate affair, states that Merle had been paddling around on a log over the pond and had tried to get off and swim, but suddenly seemed to have stepped off into a hole of very deep water and was unable to get out. Mr. Jones came to the aid of his companion, but the drowning man fought so desperately that it was impossible for effective assistance to be given and the death of the young man resulted.
      The body was brought back to this city, where it was prepared for burial and removed to the home of the parents to remain until the funeral services. The death of this estimable young man, just in the flower of his young manhood comes a a crushing blow to the parents and other relatives and friends and its suddenness has dealt them a most heart breaking blow, from which they are bowed in grief. In the sad hour of death, the deepest sympathy of the community goes out to the stricken ones with a prayer that the wounds may be healed by the Divine Spirit although deep and hard to bear.
      Mr. Parmele was one of the highly esteemed young men of the community, who was devoted to his duties and whose quiet and unassuming actions had won him a great many warm friends who are grief stricken at the tragedy that closed so untimely his promising life. He was twenty-seven years of age and leaves beside the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Q.K. Parmele, one sister, Mrs. Charles H. Hula, to mourn his untimely death.

The funeral services will be held on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home on Marble street, and the interment had in the Oak Hill Cemetery.

FAREWELL TO MRS. E.W. COOK
     St. Mary's Guild Tender a Pleasant Farewell to Mrs. Dr. E.W. Cook at the Home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Herold.

      From Friday's Daily.

      Yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock the ladies of St. Mary's Guild of St. Luke's church assembled at the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Herold in the north part of the city to tender a farewell to Mrs. E.W. Cook, who will soon depart for Rock Island, Illinois, where they will make their home in the future. As the festivities were to be held on the pretty lawn and porch at the Herold home, the spacious porch and lawn were made very attractive, comfortable and homelike with easy chairs and tables garnished with beautiful bouquets of golden flow. In the midst of these alluring surroundings a large table had been placed, which was laden with the many good things to eat. As the ladies gathered, Misses Ursula Herold and Margaret Schlater introduced a flag guessing contest, in which little folders bearing the numbers corresponding with the numbers of their flag chart, were distributed. The ladies were requested to guess the nation to which the flag belonged.
      Miss Ione Dovey was awarded the prize - a handsome bouquet of garden flowers, having guessed the largest numbers. This little flag chart was constructed by little Ursula HEROLD and was quite unique and artistic in its make-up. At the hour of six, Father Leete pronounced a word of prayer and then a delicious and most toothsome super was served in cafeteria style. Just before the good things to eat were about to disappear, watermelons were brought on the scene and served. It was announced that a watermelon eating contest would be held and those desiring to participate were asked to line up. In this contest, Mrs. Robert A. Bates carried off the prize, a tiny gift basket. A peanut hunt was then announced, peanuts having been hid about the lawn and the guests were requested to find them. Mrs. R.A. Bates found the most and received a handkerchief. The next contest was to drive four nails into a board. Mrs. J.C. Peterson, Sr., proved to be the swiftest and was presented with a fine hammer. The second prize was given to Mrs. P.J. FLYNN - a kitchen utensil. The next game was the best of all  that of keeping a feather up in the air for five minutes without touching it with their hands. Mrs. James DONNELLY captured the prize in this unique contest  a beautiful little traveling case. The guests entered into the various games and contests with much interest and enthusiasm and each diversion furnished the nucleus around which was woven much amusement and pleasure.
      Mrs. Cook then expressed her appreciation of this delightful farewell, and also expressed her regrets at having to remove from the midst of the guests, as she had enjoyed her associations and work in the St. Mary's Guild at Plattsmouth. Mrs. J.A. Donelan, president of St. Mary's Guild, responded and expressed the regret of the society at being called upon to lose Mrs. Cook from its midst, but wished her much happiness in her new home. Social conversation brought to a close one of the most delightful social events of the summer season, and also one that will not soon be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to be in attendance. After thanking Mr. and Mrs. Herold for their kind hospitality, the guests dispersed.

MADE ELEGANT GIFT.
      Just prior to their departure Dr. and Mrs. E.W. Cook presented to the public library, a gift which was one which will be admired and cherished not alone for the worth and suggestiveness of it, to the institution, and to its patrons, but because of the donors. The gift is an elegant bust of Shakespeare, and is set on a pedestal, which makes a nice bit of furniture for the library. All of the many friends of the Dr. and Mrs. Cook will remember them in the viewing of the gift, which they have made.
