But Spent Some Time Visiting in
the East Was Joined in New
York by His Wife.
From Mmdiy's Paliy.
Last evening on Xo. 14. C. C. Wes
cott. of this city, who for the past
several months has been in the ser
vice of the Y. M. C. A. in France in
the war work activities of that or
ganization, returned to his home.
Mr. Wescott lias been in the Unit
ed States for the past three weeks,
and was joined in New York by Mrs.
Wescott. and they have enjoytd a
short stay in the Berkshire hills of
New Kngland as well as at New
York, Philadelphia and other of the
large eastern cities. The pleasure of
the family at the return of the hus
band and father was only exceede I
by his own pleasure at being once
more in the family circle and able
to meet the father and mother, Mr.
and Mrs. C. K. Wescott, who had
journeyed from their home at Los
Angeles to greet their returning son.
Mr. Wescott spent the greater part
of his stay in France at Comniercy,
in the Toul sector, where a large part
of the American war work activities
wore located and which was for ;i
.hort time the headquarters of the
35th division, one of the hard fight
ing western divisions, composed of
the national guard of Kansas and
Missouri, and with which a number
from this city served.
After the removal of the Iroopj
from the Comniercy locality, Mr.
Wescott remained for a short time,
and was then sent into the head
quarters of the "Y" in. Paris, where
he was placed in charge of the uni
forming department and was com
pelled to remain several months in
getting the affair. of this depart
ment straightened out in order to
clwe up ilit extensive business inter-c.-'t:;
rf the Y. M. C. A. in the Frtnch
The many friends of Mr. Wescott
were much pleased to see him once
more with them and to find that he
had stood the long stay abroad in
such excellent shape, although ..e
was a sufferer from the common
complaint among the greater part of
the Americans in France, "homesick
ness." Mr. Wescott has had a great
experi'-nce and one that he will long
remember, but finds that there is no
place just like the home fireside.

The sad news was received here
last evening of the death at Ran

From Monday's Daily.
The cool autumn weather coupled
with the threatening rain made yes-
j terday an ideal day for the nimrods
cf this locality and long before the
, light of day the hunters were hast
ening to points along the Platte and
Missouri river in search Qf some
good duck shooting. The firing
; along the river was very lively all
of the forenoon and a number of
those going out came back with
ronie game but the flocks of ducks
and geese have not reached their
usual strength but the continued
cold weather will soon stir them up
for the southward flight.
Effort to Levy Upon Property Thru
Writ of Execution Meets
with Objection.
P'om Monday's Pally
Saturday afternoon Constable W.
B. Kishel bad an experience that he
will long remember and which for a
few minutes looked as though the
constable would have to retreat in
disorder from the scene of the bat
tle. It seems that Mr. Kishel was
armed with a writ of execution
against a family in the west por
tion of the city and which authoriz
ed him to levy upon certain personal
property to satisfy a judgment.
The constable visited the home
cud on reading the writ to the man
of the house was informed that the
only personal property they had was
a large number of children as the
household effects were exempted
from the levy of the writ.
Mr. Rishel gave the place the
once over and his eagle eye detect
ed a cow and a small heifer in the
pasture and s the cow was exempt
ed from the wri,t he decided to levy
upon the heifer and accordingly got
busy on the levying and here is
where the merry war broke forth as
he lady of the house launched a
heavv counter attack and came over
the top armed with a large club with
which she proceeded to lambast the
constable, who retired to wait for
replacements and Sheriff Quinton
responded to the S. O. S. and arriv
ed on the scene and cared for the
warlike lady, while the constable
continued with his levying.
As the parties in the case saw their
heifer about to be taken they came
across with the necessary jack to
satisfy the judgment and retained
he animal. Whether or not a com
plaint a to resisting an officer will
be filed remains to be seen.

rhe republican majority in con-
eress. although given more man
four months to act, has not taken
a definite step towards land settle
ment legislation for our soldiers.
The dereliction is so narked that
not even the republican it tempts to
"pass, the buck" and have the No-
ember convention of the American
Legion instruct or suggest what to
do. will suffice to curb the disap
pointment of the million or more
oidiers who are waiting for this
legislat ion.
Innumerable bonus bills have been
introduced, but none have seen me
light of day, and few are likely to.
The American Legion, at its initial
meeting at St. Louis, practically re
corded itself against the bonus plan.
The sentinyent was that with many
of the men a bonus of a few hun
dred dollars would be spent like
water and assist the soldiers' future
not at all.
Democratic leaders have served
notice on the republicans of the
house that action on the soldiers'
measures will be demanded. They
will insist that if the republicans
can not evolve a bill that will please
not only the veterans, but also a ma
jority of the majority party, it is
time some of the democratic meas
ures should be reported by the com
mittee in charge and given to the
house for action.
The soldiers' land bill appears to
be dead. The republicans viewed
this as a promising measure of the
sixty-fifth session to kidnap and re
introduce in the sixty-sixth session
as their own. But the republican
caucuses held since on this measure
indicate it cannot get strong sup
port. Mr. Mondell, the republican
floor leader, seems not to be able to
