earned rest he laid aside the business
cares of the active conduct of the
store in this city and retired, leav
ing the two sons C. C. Wescott and
E. II. Wescott to carry on the busi
ness that had been so successfully
established. Since 1911 Mr. and
Mrs. Wescott have made their home
at Los Angeles, California, where
they have enjoyed their declining
years in the beauty and charm of
the soft southern California coun

and mother love to journey back to
the old home in Nebraska to spend
a few weeks in viewing the familiar
scenes and getting in touch with
the old friends of long ago. That
they may have this opportunity for
many years is the sincere wish of all
those who have the pleasure of
knowing Mr. Wescott and his esti

WHY NOT THE POLICE JUDGE?
From Wednesday's Dally.
At the meeting of the city council
on Monday evening the suggestion
was offered by Councilman Schulhof
that the city should do something
for the advancement of the salary of
Tolice Judere M. Archer, who for
more than thirty years has presided
over the police court of the city and
giving the city the benefit of some
of the best vears of his- life. The
salary of the judge was fixed some
fifteen years ago by an ordinance of
the city at $30 per month and it
has continued at that figure since
that time, although the salaries of
members of the police force and the
employes of the street department
have been raised several times dur
ing the like period. Judge Archer
devotes his time to the city and de
spite the weight of increasing years
is on the job each day to look after
the demands of the city's business.
Surely if there is any official that
is deserving of a recognition of the
long and faithful service he has
given the city it is Judge M. Archer.
If the city has the right they cer
tainly should give the venerable
Judge an advance in the sum he re
ceives for his work.
