Mrs. Josephine Murphy Wild, ad
mitted to the bar by the supreme
court Wednesday, is the twenty
ninth woman in the history of Ne
braska to attain this honor. Among
the first in the list of women ad
mitted to practice in the supreme
court of Nebraska were Mrs. W. J.
Bryan and Mrs. A. J. Sawyer of Lin
coln. They achieved this honor thir
ty years ago. Mrs. Wild has served
as legal stenographer in the attor
ney general's office several years.
She passed the examination prescrib
ed by the state bar commission and
on recommendation of this commis
sion was admitted to practice in
open court Wednesday. Chief Jus

SHE WAS NO LADY.
From Saturday's Dai I v.
The most unkind and unpatriotic
remark that could be made to an
American soldier, was, according to
the story cf one of the lads station
ed at the rifle range, made on the
streets of Plattsmouth last evening.
The young man was walking up the
Main street, when a stray dog
happened. to pass hi', and this par
ticular young lady came along, and
said, "two dogs, there is no difference
between them." For shame, such a
remark coming from an American
born young woman, not becoming a
lady, to a young man who has given
up his home perhaps far more com
fortable and pleasant in surround
ings than hers, and perhaps his life,
before he has played his part in the
huge task that is before Uncle Sam's
army, that she may continue to en
joy the happiness and pleasures of
her home, no matter hovr high or
low, in this great land of Liberty
and Freedom. The young man
made no remark or return ansy
to the insult ana aoes not Know
who she was, but this is the story he
made known to the Journal office
SUHPHISED PASTOR'S FAMILY.
From Saturday's Daily.
Yesterday afternoon a most pleas
ant snrprise was given to Mrs. T. A.
Truscott, the Pastor's wife of the
Methodist Church by some of the la
dies of the Church. They called at
the Parsonage and, after a pleasant
afternoon in visiting, Mrs. E. C. Hill
representing the rest, spoke of the
"Why" of their visit. She said how
much the ladies had learned to ap
preciate the services of Mrs. Trus
cott, especially at the devotional
meetings of the different societies.
In conclusion she said they desired
to ' give some little token of love,
but did not know what to buy, so
thej' had made up a little purse
which they hope she would use in
the purchase of something by which
the occasion might be remembered.

HOW IT LOOKS AT DEMING.
Some people were made to be soldiers
But the Irish were made to be Ccps.
Sauerkraut was made for Germans,
And spaghetti was made for Wops.
Fish was made to drink water.
Bums were made to drink Booze.
Banks were made for money.
And maney was made for the Jews.
Everything was made for something
Most everything but a Miser.

But who in the hell made the Kaiser.
