FIRE IKIS NOON
CAUSES A GREAT
ALARM FOR A TIME
From Wednesday's Dally. .
About 1 o'clock this noon the
fin? alarm was sounded, and be
ing given for Main street there
was much excitement for several
minutes, when the lire was
located in the cellar of the Ger
j ii r drug store, where some
chemicals had evidently exploded,
and tin clouds of smoke rolling
up filled the store with a black
smoke through which it was im
possible to see. The lire depart
cmnt, arriving very shortly after
the alarm was sounded, ran a
line of hose into the cellar where
the source of the fire evidently
was, and in a short time the
cause of the blaze was discover
ed, being in some old boxes and
papers that were near the
chemicals. It is very fortunate
that the blaze did not develop in
to a more serious matter and
spread into the store itself, and
as it is the chief damage to the
store and the contents will be
from smoke, which completely
' filled every corner of the Store
room. The fire was ' first noticed
by Ludwig Miller when he return
ed from dinner and had made a
trip to the cellar, and the alarm
was at once turned in. for the fire
department, but several parties
in the adjoining buildings for
sevearl minutes. before the alarm
was sounded- had noticed the
smoke, but did not think anything
of the matter until the smoke
began to roll out of the Gering

COMING TO THE
A ME MONDAY
Will Be at the Parmele Monday
Evening, February 23, and Is
a Guaranteed Attraction.
"Freckles," a dramatization of
one of the most widely read books
in the past decade, by Gene Strat-ton-Porter,
is announced for
Monday night, February 23, at
the Parmele theater
From literary standards there
have been few greater pastoral
stories written. That it has been
marvelously popular is attested
by the fact that over a million
persons have read it. When one
has read a story there is always
a desire to see it played; to see
the characters in real life, and
this is undoubtedly the most im
portant reason for the success of
"Freckles" as a drama. During
its trial performances last sea-
sou it drew record-breaking audi
ences, and with unanimous ac
claim the prophecy went forth
that its success as a drama would
equal its unqualified success as
a novel. On regular lour this
season, with a complete scenic
equipment and stronger company
of artists, it is playing to
capacity audiences everywhere.
Under the management of I).
L. Martin and direction of A. G.
l)eleiiiater, known from coast to
coast as producers of nothing but
clean, healthy dramatic attrac
tions, this literary hit is making
IS BRISK AROUND THE
COUNTY JUDGES OFFICE
From Tuesday's Daily. .
This morning in the county
court a petition was filed for the
probate of the last will and testa
ment of Lewis Bird, deceased,
and the petition asks for the ap
pointment of Edward J. Mougey
as administrator of the estate,
which is valued at $-4,000. The
deceased was one of the early
settlers of Liberty precinct and
for a long period of years resided
on a fine farm a few miles north
west of the village of Union.
The county judge today also
issued a marriage license to W.
J. II. West -of -South. Dakota and
Miss Clara Ingram of Louisville.
The young people will be married
at the home of the bride at
Louisville tomorrow. The num
ber of young people entering in
to the matrimonial state in this
county is rapidly on the increase
and the license business in the
last week has been very good and
if the same rate keeps up for the
next few months it looks like
191-4 would be a record breaking
year for this department of the
county judge's office.

ASKS TD HAVE TITLE
TO LAND CLEARED UP
From Wednesday's rallv.
A suit to quiet title was -filed
today in the office of the clerk of
the district court entitled Lillian
C. Wilson vs. Alice M. Smith, et
al. The petition" states that
Alice M. Smith made a homestead
entry on June 8, 1870, on the
west one-half of the southwest
one-quarter of section 0, town
ship 12, north range 10. It was
conveyed on Juno 15, 1870, to
James Plumber, who died in July,
1870, at his home in Massa
chussels and that the admin
istration of his estate was never
completed according to law, but
in 1879 the heirs of James Plum
ber conveyed the land to J. N
Webb and the plaintiff claims
that the title was without status
owing to the fact that the adtiiin-
istraion of he esate was not com
pleted and owing to the fact that
the plaintiff has had possession
of the land for a period of more
than leii years past, holding it on
a title derived from a sale f the
land made by Alice M. Smith in
1871, and she asks that the title
be cleared of all claims or clouds
upon it. ' The plaintiff 'resides in
Saunders county, while the resi
dence of the. defendants and their
heirs are unknown.
