Former Senator S. L. Thomas came
in last evening from his farm north
west of the city accompanying his son,
W. L. who drove in With his new car.
: In conversation with the Journal man
j he spokj of the articles yesterday con
' cerning the new residence of Henry
. Born and recalled the fact that the
i house which had been torn down was
oi.e of the landmarks of the country
and was a well built house. So far as
he could recall there was only one other
house of similar age in the vicinity and
that was the old Mick el wait house here
in the city, which was built the same
year as the Archer house. There is an
old building on the farm just south of
the county farm that was built a year
later but as far as he could recollect
right at the time, the Mickelwait house
was the only one of the same age left.
Senator Thomas is a most interesting
conversationalist upon these recollect
ions of early days and he has promised
to let the Journal readers have the
benefit of his excellent memory.

J. M. Meisinger and Wife Back From
Oklahoma Well Pleased. .
J. M. Meisinger and wife returned
last Monday from an extended visit
with friends and relatives at Minco,
Okla. Mr. Meisinger hurried back so
that he could get to register his vote.
He returns about the most enthusiastic
Oklahoman imaginable. He is delight
ed with Oklahoma and its crops. From
a long experience covering a period of
sixty-five years in corn fields he states
that the corn of Oklahoma beats any
he ever saw. There are fields in which
the yield runs from sixty-five to seventy-five
bushels to the acre, good, hard
and long ears of com which would be
the pride of any corn raiser in Ne
braska, Iowa or Illinois. That is where
Mr. Meisinger is at home and he says
that no country in the world can beat
Oklahoma for that product. He also
saw lots of cotton citing one particular
case in which a northern farmer raised
thirteen hundred dollars worth of cot
ton on forty acres and cleared eight
hundred dollars on his crop from this
same forty acres.
While this pays well, Mr. Meisinger
belieyes that the northern farmer is
far better equipped to look after the
production of corn than of cotton. He
is loud in his praise of the land which
J as. Sage of this city owns. There is
some 400 acres of this land and the ten
ant on one piece of it has a crop of ten
thousand bushels of corn. As a mat
ter of surprise, he found that the price
of corn there is better than it is here
being at fifty-one cents per bushel.
From this it is easily seen that the land
is an immense yielder of profit. He
states that Mr. Sage not long since, in
fact, within a few months had pur
chased a piece of land at fifty dollars
per acre and that this land would now
easily bring seventy-five dollars per
acre. This is a remarkable showing
and Mr. Meisinger only regrets that he
has not some of it for himself. Taken
all around he is more than pleased with
his trip and is especially glad to know
that so many of his good friends are
progressing and making good down
MONEY FOR A
Sisters of Charity in the City Solicit
ing Aid For St. Elizabeth
Two of the sisters of St. Elizabeth
Hospital at Lincoln are in the" city
soliciting funds for the conducting of the
hospital. There are Sister Lamberta
and a younger sister. They have met
with some success and intend before
they leave to try and see the greater
part of the people. The hospital has
m endowment fund and the only way
in which it can be maintained is by con
tributions from the public. The pur-
Dose is a verv meritorious one ana
everyone who can afford to should aid
in keeping it' up. The system upon
which the hospital operates is to never
turn the deserving away. Those who
enter it and can afford to pay are
charged for the service rendered but
those who are ill and have not the
means to pay for their treatment are
treated free of charge. It is a charit
able institution in truth and no worthier
mission exists than its support. Sister
Lamberta was here several years ago
upon this same mission and is quite
well known among our Catholic citizens.
A Curious Complication.
A curious complication has developed
in several precincts of the county
caused by the election of several differ
ent justices and constables to vacancies
while they already hold a similar office
for an unexpired term. In several of
the precincts one justice or con
stable was to be elected, there being
already one of each officers serving in
that precinct. The voters proceeded to
write in the name of the officers al
ready holding the position with the re
sult that they were elected to the va
cancy. It is tne opinion oi good law
yers backed up by several decisions of
the supreme court to the effect that the
election is absolutely void owing to the
legal disqualification of the person re
ceiving the highest number of votes.
The court has decided that the certifi
cate cannot be issued to the person re
ceiving the next highest number of
votes but the election is void. In con
sequence of this several of the precincts
which were to elect men to fill the va
cancies, still have a vacancy. It is a
curious and unlooked for circumstance.
