The Case of Garrens vs. Woodman of
the World Occupied the Entire
Day Friday.
From Saturday's Daily.
The case offllarrens vs. the Wood
man of the World continued in district
court all day yesterday and was
warmly contested. The lodge pre
sented the evidence that the late Mr.
Garrens had been suspended from the
order several months prior to his
death, and the money for the assess
ments which was paid to the clerk of
the camp at Murray for his back dues
had been refused and sent back, as
at the time the suspension was past
the limit set by the order in their by
laws and they had declined to receive
it. although it hat! been accepted by
the local clerk.
The case raised an interesting "law
point and is one that is tilled with
quite a good deal of legal points that
might have a bearing on the question
of the payment of lapsed policies. The
assessments and dues of Mr. Garrens
had been paid to a gentleman at
Union to be handed over to the clerk
of the camp at Murray, but this had
not been carried out in compliance
with the by-laws nd rules of the
order and it was not until within a few
days of the death of Mr. Garrens that
the money for his dues was received
by the representatives of the lodge at
Murray, and when they were received
at the head office in Omaha the man
was dead and the company had sent
the money hack to Murray as it cover
el several months due?, and for the
period that Mr. Garrens had been sus
pended from the lodge. The main
question in the suit against the older
seems to hinare on whether or not the
man at Union to whom the Garivns
assessment was paid was an author
ized agent of the company or not
if he was not then the case against the
company seems to be decidedly weak,
but if he vas, of course the company
would be liable. In either case it
seems that the widow lias betii very
unfortunate in the matter, as it is con
ceded that she had kept paying the as
sessments on her husband's life for
several months prior to the time. of
his death. "
The fact that so many interesting
points of law were raised in the ca-e
caused the attorneys to agree to tak
ing the case from the jury and submit
it to the court for judgment. Judge
Becley then took the cas- under ad
visement and dismissed the jury for
the term.
From Saturday's Dally.
Halton Powell's "Henpecked
Henry," one of the most famous musi
cal comedies ever produced on the
American stage, is to be the attraction
at the Parmele theater next Tuesday
night. Its coming is in keeping with
the efforts of the house management
to present a series of the highest class
of attractions this season. "Henpeck
cd Henry" interpret the troubles of a
married man whose principal effort in
life is to sidestep troubles with his
wife. The plan is most laughable,
and to add to its charm it is present
ed by an especially fine company and
a chorus of unusual beauty. Comment
and criticisms have preceded the show
which are of a most favorable nature,
and its engagement here should be one
of the notable events of the season for
amusement lovers in this citv.

Yesterday August Thiele, one of the
substantial farmers from near Avoca,
was in the city for a few hours look

county court, and while here dropped
in for a call on the Journal office, and
it is needless to say his visit was very
much enjoyed. Mr. Thiele departed

l'lattniouth"low ns the College Team
by a Sccre of 29 to 18, in the
Presence of Large Crowd.
From Sat'iritay s Dallv
I.ast evening the Plait-mouth High
school liaskct halt team opened their
season with a great victory over the
repieentativcs of the Helievue col
lege freshmen by tin decisive score of
2! to 18. The roller skating rink
where the battle was he'd was filled
to its utmost capacity with the loyal
rooters of the home team, and at th
cloe. when the lat basket had been
thrown the home team was iriven 'a
great ovation fioni their admirers for
the great showing they had made.
The local team was in the pink of
condition and their signals were
handled like clock-work, both in the
offensive and defense. Kiom the start
of the game it waj evident that the
locals were decidedly the classie.-t
team of the two and they proceeded
to take the measuie of the visitors in
lapid ar.d clever plays that had tlu
boys from the college up the riv'cr
guessing all the time. The playing of
Frank Marshall. Kay liaison and Juno
Marshall for Plattsmouth were the
stellar fcatuies of the contest, an I
these young men were repon-;b!e for
a great many of the sones secured,
but the whole team was in the best of
shape and all determined to bring vic
tory to the home school.
The visitors played n very good
game and their ability at seturiug the
foul baskets added very much to their
string of scores, as out of fourteen
chances they were able to secure
twelve baskets. The High school team
here has been practicing hard for the
past few weeks arid under the work
of Harris Omk as coach, has develop
ed a splendid array of plays which
they are able to put through in fast
and clever playing.
There are a number of good fast
teams scheduled for the season and
the games will be very interesting, as
any team that gets the best of the
locals will have to go some.
The line-up of the team
game was as follows:

For some time past Postmaster D.
C. Morgan and the employes at the
postoffiee building have been greatly
annoyed by the fact that parties evi
dently make the steps and rotunda of
the government building a veritable
spittoon, and their contributions of
tobacco juice are plainly visible all
over the east steps of the building and
frequently on the marble floors of the
lobby. This certainly does net look
right and more care should be exer
cised in the indiscriminate expectora
tion of the tobacco "chawer." The
government building is a beautiful
structure and more care should be
taiceri in helping the government em
ployes in keeping it in first-class
shape. In a great many places such
actions as these would be dealt with
in a very severe manner.

Signatute of
Waving the customary formal
resolutions, we, the members of the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union
of Plattsmouth, desire to pay the fol
lowing tribute to our sister, the late
Mrs. Jennie Schildknecht, who passed
away at her home in this city Novem
ber 23, 1915:
In the "going home" of our beloved
sister, each member of the W. C. T.
U. ha sustained a personal loss, and
especially those who have been as
sociated with her in the work since the
early years of the organization. In
going, she left a vacancy that can
ne'er lie filled. Mrs. Schildknecht's
nam? first appears on the records in
January, 1878. She held the office of
vice president at different periods, and
was twice elected president. The sec
ond lime being November 18, 1912, to
(ill the vacancy caused by the removal
from the city of the acting president,
Mr:;. Yoiitzy, which office she faith
fully filled until failing health com
pelled her to resign last September
(1915). For years Mrs. Schiidknecht
has ben the representative from the
Christian church as acting vice presi
dent. Ihe latter being an appointive
oihec bestowed on one member from
each e f our sister churches.
For a number of years Mrs. Schild
knecht's home has been open for the
regular social and business meetings
of the W. C. T. U., at which her pres
ence was always a sweet benediction.
Our sister was earnest and loyal in
advocating any measure which was
for the advancement of the principles
for which the W. C. T. U. stands. She
willingly shared in its responsibilities,
and cheerfully performed any task as
signed her. Modest and retiring, kind
1 sympathetic and unselfish, she en
deared herself to all classes with
whom sue came m contact and these
Christian virtues were exemplified in
her daily life. Ileing sustained by the
never failing promises and grace of
God, she was enabled to meet her own
lite s sorrows and its luirclens ami re
sponsibilities with a fortitude and
cheerfulness rarely met.
And now, at the ripe age of 78, she
has laid the burdens down and quietly
slipped away to be with God. How we
will miss her. dear faithful co-worker,
friend and neighbor. Farewell, until
we meet beyond the skies. To her be
loved son, W. K. Fox, and family, the
W. C. T. U. extends sympathy in their
Mrs. C.'e. Wescott,

Work to Be Commenced as Soon as
Machinery Is on the Cround
for Boring.
The Nebraska City News of Satur
day contains the following:
, Several months ago a quiet, un
assuming gentleman landed in Cass
county and announced that he was
from Des Momes, Iowa. He made
several, tours of the county and final
ly announced that he was of the opin
ion that oil or gas could be found
there and was so srcngly convinced
that he did not ask anyone to defray
his expenses nor did he form a
stock company the first thing. He
made a thorough investigation, and
then proceeded to secure options and
and leases on some ten thousand
acres of land. Then a company was
formed, limited to a few, and now
they are ready to begin work, and
solve the problem as to whether
there is oil or gas in this vicinity.
The stockholders in the company
also made an investigation, and final
ly decided to sink the well on the
farm owned by John Larsh, three
miles eat of Union, or some twelve
miles northeast of this city. Mr.
Larsh, who is temporarily living at
Roila, Mo., came here a few days ago
for the purpose of signing contracts,
etc. It is announced that among the
papers signed was one constructing
a road eastward from Union, so that
the necesary machinery could be
hauled without any great inconveni
ence. It is understood that work on
the well is to begin at once.
John Larsh was in town this after
noon and said that work on sinking
the well on his property near Union
would begin as soon as the machin
ery could be placed in position. . It
