brought clearer to the members of

that the occasion teaches.
EXCITED OVER DIS
APPEARANCE OF GAR
Chief Barclay and the members of
the police force were greatly excited
Saturday night when the report of an
automobile being stolen was sent to
them, when they at once got busy on
the search for the missing gasoline J
wagon, it seems irom all tnat couia
be learned after several hours' of in-
quiry by the police, that a young man
from down in the country had come
in to one of the dances with a lady
f i lend, and desiring to enjoy an auto-
n-fbiie ride later in the evening se-
ered permission of a friend to use his
auto, which was parked on lower Main
st:et t. Here is where the mixup oc-
eurred as the young man in getting
rtady for the spin mistook the auto
bf'onging to Marion Thacker for the
ear of his friend and, cranking up the
r; thv.o. started out for the ride, and
the mistake was not discovered until
I.'tr when the friend of the young
man learned that his car was still on
the street and that the wrong auto
had evidently been taken, and this was
confirmed w hen Mr. Thacker discov-
i red the loss of his car. For some time
(here was quite a good deal of ex
citement, as it was feared the auto
thieves had selected this city for their
operations, but a.s the matter devel
oped it seems merely a mistake on the
pp. it of the one taking the auto. It
however gave the police force several
very unpleasant minutes.

SHERIFF HAS TUSSLE
WITH A CRAZY MAN
The county board of insanity and
Sheriff Quinton had a very lively time
this morning with an insane man that
the sheriff brought in last night from
the neighboring town of Murray. It
seems this man about dark visited the
home of John Lloyd, a few miles west
of Murray, and proceeded to throw a
scare into the family by his conduct
and remarks, stating to them that they
were about to be destroyed by a vol
cano that he discovered was about to
i ill ml . a
erupt near tne nouse. inis strange
talk alarmed the family, who locked
their doors and called Sheriff Quinton
I to the scene of action, but in the
j meantime the man made himself
scarce, but he was found later in Mur-
ray and was brought to this city with
out any trouble. This morning the
fireworks started when the sheriff
started to bring him over to the court
house from the jail in order to be ex
I amined, for as soon as Sheriff Quinton
entered the cell room the man pro
ceeded to launch a swift right to the
jaw of the sheriff, knocking him
against the wall and bruising his arm
badly and but for the timely action of
Fred Dietel, who is at Ine jail await-
ing deportation to Germany, the man
probably would have done more dam-
age, but t red tackled him as he struck
the sheriff, and although the insane
man tore the greater part of the
wearing apparel off of Fred, this di
version allowed the sheriff to get into
action, and the insane man was soon
under subjection to the officer of the
law. Just who the man is or where
he came from the board could not de
termine as his replies were wandering
and disconnected. He claimed that
someone was threatening his life and
would grow excited when this subject
was touched upon. The man will be
sent to the asylum as soon as possible
to be cared for as he is far too dan
gerous to be at large.

TO PREVENT SALE
OF STOLEN GARS
Autcmobile Owners Organize
Their Protection Against
The Omaha Police Department has
organized a "Stolen Car Department"
and placed efficient detectives in
charge, in an effort to kill the market
for stolen cars in Iowa and Nebraska.
Automobile dealers and garagemen
within a radius of 250 miles of Omaha
are giving their hearty co-operation.
Dealers and garagemen can make the
plan a great success by reporting the
sale of second hand cars in their ter
ritory, cars which are known to have
been purchased from persons coming
into our territory.
As the fake sale of a second-hand
automobile (a stolen car) knocks the
local automobile dealers, reliable and
authorized, out of a sale of a new
car, there is sure to be an enthusias
tic response from the dealers, garage
men, and othei-s connected with the
motor . fraternity here.
Prospective car buyers are warned
against purchasing cars from strang
ers. If the genei-al public will refuse
to buy from the stranger who steals
in one city and disposes of his goods
in another, the action will go far to
ward bringing success.
Persons buying haphazard, and not
knowing whether the car is a stolen
machine or not, stand to lose their
money, as stolen property reverts to
the rightful owner. Under the plan
now in operation, stolen cars are being
Stolen car bulletins are being
mailed to dealers and garagemen as
fast as names can be compiled. Over
800 dealers are at present part of
the powerful organization.
Garagemen in other cities, upon re
port of a suspicious second-hand car
sale in their territory, investigate the
matter and take license and engine
number. Transient trade stopping
for gas and supplies should be in
vpstip-ated. It is no trouble for tin
garage man to take the engine num
ber of a car while making repairs for
it is by this method that the greatest
help will result. The auto thief will
have to stop somewhere in this
mile radius for gas or supplies, and
why not here in our city?
Rewards are ottered on nearly all
J stolen cars, by either insurance com
panies, auto clubs or tne owner, and
this should be an added inducement

The motoring public is a mighty one.
It is getting wary and suspicious.
Dealers and garagemen should do all
possible to help safeguard the car

THE DUFF ELEVATOR
The elevator at the foot of Winter
steen hill that for several years has
been one of the landmarks of that sec-
tion of the city, was completely de
troyed Saturday afternoon by fire,
which was discovered about 3 o'clock
when the residents of that locality no
ticed the smoke and flames issuing
from the roof of the building, and it
was only a few minutes until the top
of the structure was a regular mass
of flames. The doers of the clevato
were broken ui on to discover whether
or not there was anyone in the struc
ture and as soon as the draft hit the
flames the whole interior was a mass
cf flames that it was invoossible to
check, although the fire department
had two streams of water playing cn
the burning building. The structure
had been in -this location for the past
twenty-five years, being built by
Frank E. White, by whom it was sou
to the Dun drain company, but iov
some years past u nas not oe-:i

from sparks from a pa-ring locomo

SATURDAY, DEC, 16
When Edward P. Temple, "the Wiz
ard of the New York Hippodrome,"
wa.i engaged by Milton and Sargent
Aborn to make their famous twentieth
century production of '"The Bohemian
Girl," he began to search the records
of ancient Gyp--y lore in orucr to
visualise perfectly the life of these
maids who are so prominent in the
plot of this opera. Consequently there
are no'anarchonisms in the costumes,
habits, customs and appurtenances
Shown in the Bohemian Gypsy life in
the Abcm Opera company's prcsenta
tion of this splendid opera. There are
also several unique Gypsy ceremonials
shown, including the sylvan wedding
of Arline and Thaddeus, the climax cf
which is the breaking of jli stone jug
with a hammer, which corresponds to
the modern minister's words: "I pro
nounce you man and wife." This
only a simple incident, one of many
that heighten the realism of the per
formance quite as much as do the
elaborate and spectacular scenery, cos
tumes and effects to be seen in the
Aborn presentation of "The Bohemian
Girl" at the Parmele theater, Satur
day night, December 10.

AT THE LEBRAR
A Large Attendance Both Saturday
Afternoon and at Night, and
Play Gives Satisfaction.
In accordance with the custom of
opening the winter "Story Hour" sea
son with a Thanksgiving entertain
ment, the play "Little Women" was
given Saturday afternoon under the
direction of Miss Annu Heisel, and
was one of the most enjoyable enter
tainments that the children have had
the pleasure of- attending. In the
evening the play was repeated in or
der to give the parents and fiiends of
the people in the cast an opportunity
to hear them. Everyone in the cast
did themselves proud, Alice Pollock as
the mischievous, impulsive "Jo," the
rever to be forgotten character cre
ated by Miss Alcott, and in a quaint
costume of the period, locked the part.

as "3.1rs. March"" with her excellent
ir...'.;.i;p in a costume of the time of

wish she had more lines. "Hannah,"
as played by Marjorie Chrisinger was
depicted with dash and abandon. Fern
Thomson as "Meg," the elder sister,
took the part with girlish dignity.
Jack McCarty as "Laurie" was a
typical light-hearted boy, and Herald
Fitt as "Mr. Laurence" presented an
amusing and kindly old gentleman.
Tho specialties between acts were
all pleasing; recitations by Clara May
Moigan and Marie were well given and
much enjoyed by the audience, and the
aesthetic dancing by Mary Catherine
Parmele was delightful in its charm
ing gracefulness. The Indian dance
by six girls was well received, and
the "Folk Dance" directed by Miss
Martin was a great favoiite. The
boys' orchestra, composed of Mildred
Lee, Piano; Miles Altman, violin;
John Ledgway, cornet; Glen Mendel -hall,
trap drummer, added much to the
pleasure 'of the evening. Miles Alt
man, the leader of the orchestra, gave
a pleasing violin solo.
The library board and libratian sin
cerely thank Miss Heisel, Miss Martin,
the boys' orchestra and all taking part
in the entertainment; also, Mr. Fields
for so kindly taking charge of making
up the players. The play netted the
library a nice little sum and will be
used for the benefit of the Story Hour
