Nebraska Fortunate, "With Horn of
IMenty I'ouring Riches At
Our Feet."
A proclamation calling for the ob
servance of Thanksgiving day, No-
ember 30, was issued by Governor
Morehead on Thursday, in which he
"To the people of the state of Ne
braska, greeting:
"It is my pleasure as governor of
the state to again call attention to
the near appioach of that season so
dear to every Ameiican citizen, in the
festivities of which there is no sem
blance of sectionalism, but in which
all point in one accord to give thanks
ffr the gifts which Cod in his provi
dence hath bestowed.
"The year draws to a close with
the horn of plenty pouring its riches
at our feet. We can be thankful for a
great past, a happy present and a
sp.endiJ outlook to the future. Ne
biaska is rounding into the fiftieth
year of her admission into the union
cf states. Our citizens of all callings
and professions have been and are
taking a deep interest in the effort
to place and keep in the front rank
the state of their adoption and birth.
Never in our history have there been
higher standards of honor and man
hood, of purity for womanhood and
of training for children. For all of
these blessings of harvest and heart,
let u? express our gratitude to the
Giver of every good and p?rfect gift.
"Now, I, John II. Morehead, as gov
ernor of the state and in keeping with
the action of the president of the
United States, do designate and set
apart, Thursday, the 30th day of No
vember, 191G, as Thanksgiving day,
and request all the people to abstain
from their usual occupation and ob
serve it as a day of thanksgiving; not
forgetting to contribute out of our
bounty to those less fortunate and in
a special manner contribute to the
vaii jus calls made upon us Jby those
who now suffer from the ravages of
war, and while we open our hands to
their cry for material help, pray for
the f-neoy coming oi the day wnen
peace will be restored to the nations
now at war.
Two suits were filed yesterday in
the district cour in the office of James
the district court in the office of James
of which is entitled the Bank of Com
merce of Louisville vs. W. II. Pan
kenin, in which the plaintiff states
that the defendant on March 2S, 191G,
made and executed a promissory note
for the sum of $1,444.20 in favor of
the plaintiff, and- on April 15, 191G
executed a note for $430 in favor of
the bank, both notes being still un
paid and the plaintiff therefore prays
for a judgment to cover both notes.
A divorce suit entitled Lena Larson
vs. John Gu?t Larson has been filed in
the court. In her petition the plaintiff
states that they were married in
Omaha May 10, 1911, and that two
children were born to them. The first
charge preferred is that of extreme
cruelty, stating that on July 13, 1D1G,
the defendant threatened and cursed
the plaintiff and made it necessary to
seek refuge at the home of the plaint
iff's parents in Cass county. The sec
ond charge is that the defendant is
addicted to the use of intoxicating
liquor and is a habitual drunkard. The
third charge is that of non-support.
The plaintiff asks for a decree of abso
lute divorce and the custody of the
two children. The defendant resides
at Popular, Mont.
From the Lincoln Journal we take
the following: John N. Larsh. a
aimer living near Union, Cass county,
wanter a small strip of land, much
less than an acre, to join two parcels
of land he owned on the banks of the
Missouri river. He found that the
state made no claim to it though it
was within a section which belonged
to the state of Nebraska. Mr. Larsh
promptly filed an application for the
bit of land under the imber and stone
act of 1878. He will get the strip and
it will cost him about $50 in fees to
become its owner. The land is liable
to be eaten up by the voracious Mis
souri river.

honor of Miss Margaret Murtz of Bay

The rooms of the beautiful Patterson
home were very tastefully decorated
with a color scheme of yellow an 1
white, the dining table being arranged
with a large bouquet of the white and
yellow chrysanthemums, that added
very much to the charming scene.
Following the dinner the ladies en

A half million dollars worth
of perfectly good farm ma
chinery is thrown in the scrap
pile every year in Nebraska.
Farm work is the hardest
work there is on machinery.
Castings break, bearings
wear out, shafts bend and
break. Things get dull and
pull hard, gears rattle, smash,
bang and crash, paint gets dull.
Many farmers throw away
machinery and buy new, be
cause they are not aware that
we can in nearly every case
re-make such machinery equal,
and in many respects better
than new.
We do not care how bad your
machinery is smashed or worn,
they all look alike to us; we re
make them as good as new and
save you money.
A dollar saved is a dollar
earned, keep your money at
home and you may get it back
again besides it helps us to em
ploy home labor.
Tut your machinery troubles
up to us, we have the best
equipped machine shop in the
country; if you don't believe it
call and see us. Visitors are
always welcome.
WTe make everything in metal.
Now is a good time to over
haul things for the spring rush.

Thoe from this city who motored
out to Louisville last evening to take
in the wrestling match held there be
tween Frank Schmarder, the fast
Louisville boy, and "R?:l" Wernstaff
of Hamburg, Ir,., report that there
was little diiTiculty in Frank getting
r.wav with the match as he had the
Iowa boy out-classed all the way
through and it was impossible for
"Peu" to get away from the holds laid
on him by the Louisville expert in the
art that Joe Stecher has made famous.
The first fall came in two minutes
after the referee had called time, and
the second fall in three minutes, when
the shoulders of the Iowa man were
resting on the mat. The attendance
was very good and the corwd seemed
decidedly enthusiastic over the out
come of the battle. Schmarder has
for the past several years ranked as
one of the fast wrestlers in this por
tion of the state and has taken part
in some good fast matches. The Lou
isville people have given good support
to this spcrt and at the matches held
there a gcod attendance has been re
corded. Those who were present from
this city made the trip by automobile
and owing to tha shortness of the
match were able to get back home
early and without waiting for a late
