well as of the father of our country.
To make the surprise all the more
complete and to throw Miss Meislnger
off her guard, It was proposed by Mrs.
Lorenz that the Majestic theater be
visited, and immediate preparations
were begun to attend the moving
picture show, but just before the
time came to leave the residence, be
hold, a company of fifteen or twenty
of Miss Melslnger's frlend3 appeared
at the Lorenz residence on North
Eighth and Day streets and knocked
for admission. The surprise, of Miss
Meislnger could not have been
greater, but she managed to hide her
disappointment at not being able to
go to the Majestic, and soon had her
young friends feeling perfectly at
The company was entertained at
progressive pitch, the selection of the
partners as planned by Mrs. Lorenz
was very unique. Eacb. guest was
provided with a Washintgon hatchet
bearing a number, and to secure a
partner for the game each young man
was required to find a young lady
with a hatchet numbered to cor
respond with the number he held. At
the conclusion of the game the first
prize was awarded to Miss Anna
Libershall and the second prize to
Mr. II. J. Meislnger. A four-course
lunch was Berved, after which other
games appropriate to the season and
occasion, interspersed with with

Miss Meislnger many as pleasant re
turns of the day.

Fred Dawson Saves a Young
Man From Drowning at the
Y. M. C A. Plunge in
Lincoln News of last evening con
tains the following:
"The first accident of a serious
nature that has ever occurred at the
Y. M. C. A. plunge took place yester
day afternoon, being the result of a
practical joke and the weakened con
dition of the victim, who had recently
undergone , an operation ; for ap
pendicitis. John Wllhelm, a student
from Havelock, came near drowning
after having been pushed into the
plunge by a friend. It was fifty-five
minutes after tie. was rescued from
the plunge before his eyes opened.
When he first struck the water he be
gan to swim, then threw up his hands
and sank. A number of boys were
swimming in the pool at the time.
They began calling for "Dawson," too
frightened to go to Wilhelm's aid. F.
G. Dawson, who was a considerable
distance away at the time, ran to
Wilhelm's assistance, jumping Into
the pool and towing him ashore.
"Wllhelm had been practicing
basket ball and later had taken a
shower bath. Then he went to the
plunge room and was standing near
the edge of the pool when a friend
pushed him in.
"After Mr. Dawson had towed him
to the shore A. M. Eafon assisted Mr.
Dawson to carry Wllhelm to the
physical director's office. Wllhelm
was unconscious. George Pinneo, the
physical director, and Dawson worked
over Wllhelm for about half an hour
In an effort to revive him. At the end
of this time he was still unconscious.
They sent for Dr. Fred Elche. It was
forty-five minutes from the time,. Wll
helm was taken from the water until
his eyes first opened.
"It was though by the doctor that
Wllhelm was In a weak condition
from JuBt recovering from an opera
tion and that this, on top of playing
basket ball all afternoon, weakened
his vitality. The sudden shock of the
cold water was too much for him and
he succumbed to what is known as
'cramps.' (
"It is a familiar trick at the Y. M.
C. A. plunge for boys In a spirit of
fun to push their friends overboard.

Mr. R. L. Propst of Mynard, one of
the progressive farmers of Mynard, Is
entitled to a vote of thanks from the
vicinity of that village as the first
man on the road this spring with a
split log drag, and was engaged this
afternoon " dragging the roads ad
jacent to his farm. If every farmer
whose land abuts on a public high
way would follow Mr. Propst's ex

It is a great help to one desiring to
haul a load over the road. The
farms in the neighborhoods where
the drag Is used freely are worth
more per acre' than In a locality
where the road gets no attention.

A deed was filed with Register of
Deeds Andy Snyder today covertng
one of the biggest real estate trans-
ctioni which has transpired in Cast
county for a long time. The deed is
Igned by George L. Sheldon and
life and conveys to Frank P. and
"lias P. Sheldon, for a consideration
f $75,000 480 acres of fertile Cass
county land, situated near Nehawka.
Another bill calculated to make the
county the unit is that school bill for
levying a county school tax of not
less than 10 mills, to be distributed
among the various districts in the
same manner as the state apportion
ment of school funds. Under this law
the county Is the unit, Instead of the
school district, as Is now the case.
Under this law, also, taxes that
would be collected froni the cltl8
would go Into the county fund, and
a share of it distributed in all the
other districts of the county on a per
capita basis of pupils therein, but In
asmuch as the country districts would
also he taxed, and that the city would
share therein, the exchange might not
be unfair, the best of the bargain de
pending largely upon the per capita
value of property each may contain
as measured by their respective
school populations.
If the value of country property per
capita of school population Is greater
than that of the city property then
the city would get the best of the
deal. If the value of city property Is
greater per capita of school popula
tion, then the country will profit from
the change. Tho purpose Is to make
the stronger districts help pay for
the schools of the weaker ones.
