A LIVELY TIE
OVER AT EAGLE
Made So By a Visit of Some Lincoln
Parties, Who Evidently Desired
to Have Things Their Own
"Way Were Arrested.
From Saturday's Daily.
The village of Eagle seems to have
been the scene of considerable excite
ment on Thursday evening, in which
an auto party from Lincoln raised
several assorted varieties of trouble
for the marshal of the town, Fred
Spanhle. The Lincoln visitors hid
reached Eagle and spent some little
time there, making a disturbance that
was very annoying, and made it
necessary for the marshal to take a
hand. While they were en route to
jail the marshal was standing on the
running board of the automobile con-,
veying the prisoners when he was
suddenly knocked off the car and the
guilty parties made their escape Lin-,
colnward. At a later hour one of
the offending parties was located and
again placed under arrest, and a de
termined search made for the second
of the men who had violated the
peace of our enterprising little west
side town. Sheriff C. D. Qumton and
County Attorney A. G. Cole jour
neyed out to Eagle yesterday after
noon and looked over the situation,
with a view to straightening out the
The sheriff and county attorney re
turned last night with Joe Riley, the
driver of the automobile in which the
Lincoln joyriders were making their
trip, and wil hold him to face a
complaint. It would seem from the
facts in the case, as far as could be
learned from the Eagle authorities,
that Riley and a man named Render
son with two ladies were driving
through Eagle at a rather high rate
of speed when Marshal Spahle
called to them to stop, which they
did, and he placed the driver under
arrest and ordered him to drive to
the office of the justice of the peace,
a short distance away. The driver,
Riley, drove past the street where
the marshal desired him to turn and
continued on to the O street road,

westward, headed for Lincoln, and it
is here that it is claimed Spahnle was
pushed off the car by the driver. In
the sudden turn the car escaped from
the control of the driver and in a few
seconds had headed for a ditch by the
wayside, and the only thing that pre
vented the occupants being badly in
jured was the fact that the ditch was
so narrow that it did not permit the
car to overturn and it ran along in
the ditch for quite a distance before
it was stopped. The other members
of the auto party will probably be
here to testify in favor of the arrest
ed man, Riley, as the ladies claim
that he did not push the officer off
the car. Henderson, the second man
of the party, claims to know nothing
of the officer being pushed or falling
off the car until after the affair hap

JOY IN THE PARMELE AND
OOVEY HOMESJT' A BOY
From Saturday's Dally.
This morning at 1:15 there arrived
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George
O. Dovey a fine little son and heir,
and the advent of the young man has
been the source of much rejoicing
among the delighted relatives of the
fine little man. The mother and lit

the city. His joy is shared by the
two proud grandfathers, C. C. Par-

pleased with the addition that has
been made to their families. It will
be the wish of the many friends that
the young Mr. Dovey will live to en

MUCH CORN IS REPLANTED.
From Saturday's Dally.
" The visitors here from Elmwood
today report that in their section of
the county the corn in a great many
places has been replanted, due to the
cold and backward season, and this
has put back the work considerably,
The wheat crop in that section seems
to be fair and will probably keep up
to the usual amount.

ladies' and children's hats, at a very
reasonable price. H. Waintraub.

E. G. Shallenberger at -the Immanuel
hospital in Omaha, where she was
operated on Thursday morning, states
that she is not doing as well as had
been expected, but the serious nature
of the operation was such as to maMe

here of this estimable lady will sin
cerely trust that the condition of the
patient will improve and that she
may soon be able to return to her
HEARING ON REMON
From Saturday's Dally.
The hearing on the remonstrance
of a large number of the residents
of the territory near Elmwood
against the changing of the district
and placing them in district No. 95
was staged this morning in the dis
trict court room before County Super
intendent Eda Marquardt, County
Clerk Libershal and the board of
county commissioners. There were a
large number of the residents of that
locality" interested in the remon
strance present to present their side
of the case and the large attendance
made it necessary to hold the session
in the court room as the commis
sioners' room -was inadequate to
accommodate the spectators. This is
a case growing out of the request of
district No. 95 to have the six sec
tions of land which the law provides
assigned to them, and the remon
strators desire to remain in their
present school districts, which are
much more convenient to them.
Those here from that locality were:
Ed Bornemeier. C. D. Kunz, August
Bornemeier, J. W. Mendenhall and
wife, William Bornemeier, June Deles
Dernier, Richard Deles Dernier, John
G. Stark, George Oehlerking, Harry
Marshall, Ed Earnest, Henry Voght,
William Rosenow. Elmer Boyles, Al
bert Wallinger, John Gerdes, Miss
Etta James, Herman Keer, Henry
and William Hayes.
After hearing the representations
of the gentlemen protesting against
the change in the school districts, the
b'oard decided to postpone action until
after the supreme court had passed
on the testcase from Thayer county
that will determine the question of
the law being constituional. This
case will soon be decided by the
RETURNS FROM HOSPITAL.
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Frank
Maurer returned home from the Im
manuel hospital in Omaha, where she
has been for the last few week
recovering from an operation, and as
a result Mrs. Maurer is feeling much
betterand her friends and family are
well pleased to learn that her health
has been so much improved. Mr.
Maurer was in Omaha yesterday and
accompanied his wife back home.

TRIBUTE TO A BOY

From Saturday's Dally
The following from the State Jour
nal of this morning gives the account
cf a recital given there last evening
by Clarence V. Staats, son of Mr. and
Mrs. G. K. Staats of this oity, and
the account is a well-deserved tribute
to the ability of this young man:
"A large audience assembled last
night at Plymouth Congregational
church to hear an organ recital by
Clarence Staats. Mr. Staats is a
student with J. Frank Frysingcr and
appeared in recital for graduation
from the university school of music.
His technic was excellent. He played
musically, with dignity and with
commendable lack of mannerisms.
The Wagner-Kinder introduction to
the third act of 'Lohengrin,' with the
themes of the 'Pilgrims' chorus was
particularly enjoyable. The program
as a whole was poetical rather than
brilliant, but closed with Matthews'
'Paean,' a triumph song, in which Mr
Staats developed adequately big ef
fects. The numbers follow:
"Guilmant Sonata in C minor;
Allegro Maestoso e con fuoco, Adagio
"Mozart Frysinger Menuct in D
"Bach Fugue a la Gigue.
Act " 'Lohengrin.'

A Symbol of Health.
The Pythagorians of Ancient Greece
ate simple food, practiced temperance
and purity. As a badge they used the
five pointed star which they regarded
as a symbol of health. A red five
pointed star appears, on each package
of Chamberlain's Tablets, and still
fulfils its ancient mission as a symbol
of health. If you are troubled with
indigestion, biliousness or constipa
tion, get a package of these tablets
from your druggist. You will be sur
prised at the quick relief which they
afford. Obtainable everywhere. -

SUNDAY RED LETTER
DAY AT EVANGELI
Sunday was a red letter day for
the congregation of St. Paul's Evan
genical church in this city and one
long to be remembered. At the Sun

dressed the children, telling them the
history of a number of gods wor
shipped in India, mentioning the god
Ci eshnaj- Ganesh, Wishnce and others.
At the morning service Rev. J. H.
Steger served at the altar, while Rev.
E. Holden of Gladstone, Neb., gave
a very powerful sermon, using for his
test John G, verse 27, "Thou hast the
words of eternal life." The sermon
was well illustrated, proving that
human laws as such never will give
true spiritual as well as civil liberty,
but that the ethics of. Christ are the
enly true revolutionizing power. The
choir rendered two beautiful hymns,
being assisted by the Revs. Zwilling,
Fischer and Able. The Lord's sup
per was administered after the morn
ing service. Rev. Steger and Rev.
Holden were the "assistants.
The afternoon service was devoted
to the mission work of the synod, and
Rev. Nottrobt gave a most interest

about the mission work in the far
east. A male choir, consisting of a
number of ministers, rendered a num
