day for Sioux City, where he has ac
cepted a good position with a large
implement company of that place.
He has not fully made up his mind
whether or not he will retain the
position, but will give it a trial, and
if it proves to his liking he will no
doubt remain with the company. Ted
is a good implement man. and we
predict that he will make good in

in Imperial, suffering with an attack
of the flu. His brothers, L. G. and
Harold were summoned to his bed

The road west from Murray, on
the Oldham hill, has been giving the
traveling public lots of trouble these
days. The snow drifts into the low
places and makes it pretty bad. Ev
erybody has had their eyes on the
new county commissioner, Crede
Harris, for the proper relief here.
One of the most enjoyable events
of the Christmas times is the hear
ing from old time neighbors and
friends, who have scattered to all
states in the union. Friends here re
ceived cards from Mrs. Nellie Allison
Lawler, in which she speaks of the
success of the northwest and its nu
L. H. Puis installed a new Alamo
lighting plant at the farm home of
Walt Sans a few days ago. Walter
is another man who wants everything
about his home as convenient as pos-
rible, and the electric light became
a necessity for the comfort and con
venience of the family through the
long winter nights.
Frank Mrasek is now looking af
ter the heavy hauling around his
farm work with one of those new up-
to-the-minute Fulton trucks that he
purchased a few days ago from the
Puis agency in Murray. The Richter
Bros, have also purchased one of the
same make from Mr. Puis and will
no doubt find a most convenient place
of duty for it in their farm work
Dietrich Koester, residing down
near Weeping Water, has just com
pleted a most modern farm house,
and of course this sort of a struc
ture would not be complete without
an electric light plant, and he has
installed one of the popular Alamo
plants which he purchased through
the Puis agency at Murray. Mr.
Kceter is the man who wants every
thing up to date, and we are sure
that he has a farm home that is just
about as convenient as it is possible
to make it.

MRS. AUBREY DAY MTJNGER,
GRANDDAUGHTER OF FORMER
OHIO GOVERNOR, SUICIDES
WIFE OF CAPT. A. D. HUNGER
Mrs. Munger Was Very Prominent
In the Capital City
Cincinnati, O., Dec. 30. Mrs.
Aubrey Day Muiiger 27 years old,
well to do, and a prominent resi
dent of Lincoln, Neb., committed
suicide here yesterday by leaping
from a window of her room at the
Grand hotey, falling more than
100 feet to the sidewalk on Fourth
street. Mrs. Munger registered at
the hotel shortly before her death.
Her father, Robert Lucas, her 1-year-old
babe, and her aunt, Mrs.
Florence Horton, accompanied her.
The party came to this city from
Florida to consult a specialist in
regard to Mrs. Munger, who was
suffering from nervous trouble.
Shortly after the first meal taken
by the party in the hotel Mr. Lucas
and Mrs. Horton left Mrs. Munger
for a few moments to arrange for
a more suitable apartment. When
they returned to the room the door
was locked and after forcing an en
trance they found the room empty.
Later Mrs. Munger was found ly
ing crushed and dying on the side
walk. City patrolmen Weiss and
Glindmeyer, who found Mrs. Mun
ger, rent her to the city general
hospital but she died before the am
bulance reached the institution. Her
skull and jaw were fractured and
she sustained internal injuries.
Mrs. Munger was the wife of
Capt. A. D. Munger, prominent in
army circles, and now attached to
an American base hospital at De
vonshire, England. She was the
granddaughter of Robert Lucas,
former governor of Ohio, and
Mrs. Munger Prominent
In Capital City Society
Lincoln. Dec. 30. Mrs. Arbor
Day Munger who ended her life in
Cincinnati by jumping from the
window of her hotel was prominent
in Lincoln society. Both Mrs.
Munger and her husband, Capt. A.
D. Munger, were graduated from
the University of Nebraska in 1914.
They were married here in 1915
and spent two years at Brooklyn.
X. Y., while her husband completed
a post-graduate course in Columbia
university. Mrs. Munger was a
talented musician and very popu
lar in the university. She was 27
years of age. Her father, Robert
Lucas, is a prominent ranch owner
livins at Pierce, Neb., and formerly
served in the Nebraska legislature.
Mrs. Munger accompanied her
husband to New York City last May
when her husband sailed for over
seas duty and later returned to Lin
coln, but her health alarmed her
relatives and her father took her
to Florida to spend the winter. She
was obsessed with the fear that she
would not see her husband again.
The change failed to bring any im
provement and Mrs. Munger re
turned to Lincoln. She was in Cin
cinnati for a consultation with a
specialist when she ended her life.
A telegram to a brother-in-law,
Dr. I. C. Munger of this city, stated
the body would be brought here to
morrow for burial. Mrs. Munger
is survived by her husband and an
"FLU" HITS INSURANCE
COMPANIES HARD AND
FORCES SALE OF BONDS
Omaha, Dec. 31. The paid death
claims of the Woodmen of the
World has been $6,000,000 above
normal since September 20, 1918,
according to President Fraser, when
asked what the efTect of the influ
enza epidemic had been on that
company. "But we have a reserve
of $43,000,000." added Mr. Fraser,
"so that does not bother us very
much, and on December 28 we had,
in addition to that, as a checking
account in the Omaha banks a bal
ance of $2,046,910.10. We are pay
ing every claim promptly as it
comes in and is approved."
Mr. Fraser gives as one of the
great reasons for the recent slump
in the market price of Liberty
bonds the fact that so many, old
line and fraternal companies have
had to brow their securities on the
market to enable them to pay their
claims. He said: "They figured on

Let us tell you how

and when the epidemic struck the
country they have had to throw
them on the market to liquidate
their claims. I know one corapnny
that recently sold $2,000,000 worth
and are now putting $2,000,000
more on the market. Insurance
companies have been big buyers- of
bonds, not only in the campaigns,
but on the open market."
Mr. Fraser says in looking over
the list cf death claims resulting
from the influenza, the ages range
from 25 to 39 in practically all cas
es. This, he says, represetns the
insurable lives, and on which the
Insurance companies figure the
smallest risk in normal times.
