EOOZE TO BE USED AS EVIDENCE.
From Wednesday's Daily.
The lire fighters of Plattsmouth
the boys who get out in all kinds of
weather and at all times of the day
and night, to look after the savins
of our homes and business houses
when they are threatened by the
demon fire- were in session last
evening:, with the president, Joseph
Sabatka, in the chair, and Guy CIos
en acting as secretary, the usual
amount of business being transacted.
After discussing matters pertain
ing to the better fighting of fires in
the city and those precautions which
go bo far to prevent fires, they took
up the matter of sending delegates to
the State Volunteer Fire association
meeting, which is to be held in Fre
mont on January 15, 16 and 17 next.
After discussing the matter to some
extent they concluded that they
would defer the matter of the selec
tion of the delegates until a spec
ial meeting which is called for
Friday evening of this week at 7:30,
at which time they will make their
selections. In the discussion those
present felt that this city should be
represented at the state meeting and
thought that it would be in line for
the better workings of the depart
ment to have one of the delegates
the Chief of the Fire Department,
as at a general meeting of this kind.

C. D. Quinton, sheriff was sup
eonaed before the ; United States
court at Omaha and commanded to
bring with him, the whiskey which
has been taken in the various catch
es here during the past when ar
rests were made for illegal traffic of
whiskey. Trials by the United States
authorities are under way against all
the people who were engaged in the
traffic who have been apprehended.
Resides the penalties for the traffic,
other violations have been made
that of forging stamp marks, chang
ing date of placing the spirits in
The original stamp showed the
spirits placed in bond in 19 1C and
1917, but over that there was
stamped by a process which the'
ones handling the stuff had a stamp''
showing that the spirits was placed
in bond in 1912 and 1913. It looks
like before the matter is over that
many more may get into the matter,
that notwithstanding the enormous
profits the stuff has been paying that
it will cease to be a profitable busi
ness venture in any case.
A GIRL GLADDENS THE HOME.
From Wednesday's Daily.
Yesterday at the home of Leonard
Jay and wife a 'little girl came to
impart gladness and joy in the house
hold, and it was a great success. The
little Miss was more than pleased at
the pleasure it brought to its par
ents by its appearance just before
the Yuletide and now is looking for
many valuable ideas as to the man- the return of the favors in the shape
ner of successfully fighting fires are of gome Chrismas greetings, which
will be in keeping of the event of
her coming. There is rejoicing in
the household, and Grandpa Wil

The above facsimile of check represents the landlord's share from 74 acres of the
1917 wheat crop grown on part of the S W. Quarter of Section 2, Township 7, Range
41, Chase County, Nebraska.
Mr. Ernest Jones, of Macedonia, la., bought this land from me on February 24th
1917, for $20.00 per acre. At the time of purchase there was 74 acres in cultivation and
seeded to fall wheat; the purchaser was to receive delivered to market without expense
y$ of the crop.
This means that the 74 acres cost Mr. Jones $1,480.00 and from the first crop and
within ten months paid him on the investment $1,225.21; the renter who farmed the land
retained of the crop, amounting to $2,450.42. Total returns from this 74 acres $3,
675.63, practically $50.00 per acre or 22 times the original cost of the land.
We are still selling land of this class for $30.00 per acre.
