Mr. Keil was in Omaha Saturday,
where he was called on a few business
affairs, and not realizing the danger,
left his machine for a short time on
one of the prominent streets of the
city and spent a short time looking
after his business affairs, and on his
return, lo and behold, the car was
gone and has not been heard of since
The list of automobiles that have dis
appeared in the metropolis is con

The many old" friends here of Mrs.
John Fassber.der will regret greatly
to learn of her serious illness at her
home in Nebraska City and as a re
sult of which she was compelled to
undergo a surgical operation at her
home in that city yesterday morning.
The operation was performed by Drs.
Fegers and Watson of Nebraska City
and at last reports the patient is get
ting along nicely and showing signs
of improvement although it is too
soon after the operation to fully de
termine the outcome of the case. A
trained nurse from the Clarkson hos
pital in Omaha is attending Mrs. Fass-
bender. It is certainly to be hoped
that future reports from the bedside
of in is estimable lady will tell of her
continued improvement. The Fass-
bender family were residents of this
city for a number of years before
moving to Nebraska City and are held
in high esteem by the large number of
friends in this city.
