until such time as it is possible for
him to be brought to this city.
In Eecuring the speedy hearing of
the men and their early sentence,
the sheriff and county attorney have
saved the county the cost of anoth
er very expensive jury trial and with
the apparent guilt of the parties it
was not difficult to secure their plea
of guilty and thereby do away with
the need of the county putting out '
several hundred dollars for the costs
of the trial.

EARLY BAPTIST HISTORY
From Monday'? Dally.
Inquiries have been received here
from the leaders of the movement
to celebrate the anniversary of the
Baptist church in the state, as to
the history of the church in this
city. The activities of the Bap
tists as a church organization in this
community ceased several years ago
when the few remaining members
that had maintained the congrega
tion grew too lev- in numbers to
keep up the church and the struc-
ture was later sold to R. L. Propst
who had the church building re
moved to Mvnard where it was
changed into a residence and was I Firm of Anderson & Davis of Pa

RECEIVES A LETTER
FROM HIS BROTHER
Edward Donat of This City Hears
From His Brother Frank. Resid
ing in Vienna, Austria.
From Saturday's Daily.
Yesterday Edward Donat was re
joiced to receive a letter from his
brother, Frank Donat residing at
Vienna. Austria, from whom he has
not heard for the past five years.
The letter is interesting as describ
ing the conditions prevailing in the
beautiful capital city of the new
Austrian republic. The food condi
tions there while still serious are
not as bad as they have been and
food is' a little more plentiful but
still with the unsettled conditions
prevailing it is hard tp determine
the final outcome of the results of
the long suffering in that city as
the unrest among the population is
very great. One of the chief causes
of the suffering and unrest is due
to the large number . of Jewish
refugees who fled from Poland in
view of the Russian and German
demonstrations against their race
and these people being unloaded in
Vienna on the already impoverished
population of the city has caused a
great deal of worry and annoyance
to the inhabitants and made the
task of feeding the people a graveltr' to tht house and ransacked the
problem. Mr. Donat states that dur
ing the war The residents of Vienna
were limited to an allowance of ani
mal fat of four ounces for every
thirty days and that this has caused
a great deal of suffering among all
classes but that it has improved
somewhat as the allied powers have
shipped large quantities of foodstuff
to the city for relief of the people.
He also informed his brother of the
fact that their second brother
Joseph Donat had died in Vienna
last March, cf an attack of . pneu
monia and this was the first news
Ed has had that his brother was
not living as during the dark days
of the war it was impossible to get
any word from the relatives in the
Austrian empire. Frank Donat was
a very wealthy manufacturer before
the war and while suffering a great
deal 'from the effects of the "strife
that crippled all the business indus
tries of the nation has realized
enoueh from his business to be able
to withstand the worst of the ordeal
through which the nation and the
people are now passing as the re
sult of the shortage in food and sup
plies. !,H0LDS A. VERY

HAS A BURGLAR
Home of C. P. Hall. South of That
City, is Ransacked and Some
$50 in Cash Taken.
From Saturday Daily.
The reports come from the vicin
ity of Elmwood of the visitation
there on the night of October 19th
of burglars who appear to have
made the home of C. P. Hall, south
of that city, the scene of their op
erations and as a result of the visi
tation the male members of the
family are mourning the loss of
$50 in cold cash. The parties pull
ing off the robbery made their en-
pockets of the men folks relieving
them of their surplus coin.
As far as can be learned nothing
else was taken except the money
and the burglar seemed to know
what he waHted and where to get
it. As has been suggested by Brc.
Blessing, of the Leader-Echo, it is
always the safest policy to keep the
money and valuables cf the house
hold under lock and key and espec
ially at njght.
SEEKS DAMAGES FOR
AN AUTO ACCIDENT
Parties In West Portion cf the Coun
ty Involved in Damage Suit as Re
, suit of Accident in Lincoln.
Fi om Thursdays Daily.
This morning in the district court
suit was filed by Eri McCorkle
against William H. Eetz in which
the plaintiff asks damages in the
sum of $500 for damages alleged to
have been sustained in an automo
bile accident occuring in Lincoln in
August of 1918. ,
The petition of the plaintiff states

speed on the right hand side of the
street and that the defendant was
driving on the same thoroughfare
and attempted to pass the car of
the plaintiff and carelessly and ne
glectfully allowed his automobile

$150 and that as the result of the
accident the plaintiff was unable to
perform his labors for a week for
which he asks the sum of $300 and
$10 for medical service that he was
compelled to employ. The total
amount of damages asked is $500.
The plaintiff in his petition also
states that the defendant was run
ning at a rate of speed greater than
that permitted by the city ordinanc
es of Lincoln and the laws of the
state of Nebraska.
. A REMINDER OF WINTER.
fr5m Tuesday's Dally.
The weather this morning was
decidedly a foretaste of the bleak
and wintry days that are soon to
creep upon us and the pedestrians
on the streets did not loiter along
with the chilling wind that came
from the north making the atmos
phere anything but summer like.
The temperature at 8 o'clock reg
istered eighteen degrees above zero,
but coming very suddenly on the
community it made it seem a great
deal colder. However the clearing
skies made a very pleasant day
aside from the chilling wind and we
have the consolation of knowing
that it is snowing in Minnesota and
ten below zero in North Dakota so
we can look for more of the old

REVIVING A PAY
ING HOME INDUSTRY
Gus R. Olson Seeking to Secure a
Revival of a Very Profitable
Branch of His Business.
From Tuesday's Daily.
A great many readers of the
Journal will recall a few years ago
when Gus R. Olson, of the Olson
Photo Co.. established as a part of
the business in this city a modern
razor blade sharpening machine and
which was a very successful portion
"of the business at the, time and
which received orders from all por
tions of the west. This branch of
the Olson company gr?w so that it
furnished quite an employment to
a number of persons but was tem
porarily checked by the growing de
mands made on the photographic
end of the establishment that re
quired the personal attention of Mr.
Olson and this was followed by the
war and the absence cf the owner
at Camp Funston. Kansas, where he
had opened a branch house and
thereby the razor sharpening de
partment of the business was allow
ed to lag. Now that Mr. Olson is
in a position where he can give
more attention to the management
of this department he is desirous of
reviving and putting it on a paj'ing
basis again and to do so is enlisting
the interest of the citizens of the
community in taking a part in mak
ing it a success. Mr. Olson is en
gaged in securing the interest of
the citizens who have small sums
they desire to invest at a good pay
ing interest and which will not only
bring them a good interest on their
money but also prove an aid to one
of our industries that has in the
past been very successful.
This portion of the Olson indus
tries if properly" handled "wflKprove
a very paying proposition and also
furnish employment to a number of
our people in the plan-t as well as
to many outside in handling the
orders for the company. Mr. Olson
desires to install new machinery for
carrying on tne work ana witn tne
co-operation of the citizens of the
community hopes to have a very
paying industry developed in this
city.. There are millions or these
razor blades thrown away each year
over the United States and with very
little expense the owners can have
them made as good r new and as
they are constantly advancing in
price it means a big saving to the
men who are shaving themselves.
To anyone who is interested in the
proposition Mr. Olson is pleased to
explain all the particulars and the
opportunity it offers as an invest
ment. VERY PLEASING

From Monday's Dallv.
Last evening the Methodist Epis
copal church was well filled with a
large audience of sttentiv? hearers
to listen to the very able address !
livered by the pastor, Kev. A. V.
Hunter, who had as his subject
"Sidetracked." and in the course of
his remarks the pastor took up the
tendency to pass the needs of i'.:
Christian life and the church.
The speaker gave a most impres
sive sermon that was a fitting begin
ning for the two weeks" special
meetings that are to be held at thi;
church. Each evening the pu.-ior
has selected strong, able subjects a:. il
in his forceful and impressive man
ner, he will present them to the peo
ple of the community.
To assist in the services a chorus
choir of twenty-five voices will le
used, rendering the old and inspir
ing hymns at each of the services,
which will undoubtedly have an in
spiring effect upon the success of
the meetings. The choir will be
under the direction cf Mrs. E. U.
Ve3c0tf. Miss 'Agnes' Garner, Oij ;f
the deaconesses of the church, will
bo here this week and assist in the
work of the meetings.
At the meeting last evening one
new member was admitted to il.e
church at the close cf the service,
which is a very pleading berinnhig
of the meetings. As the clewing num
ber of the musical program, Mr.- E.
H. Wescott gave a very pleasing
solo number, "He leadeth Me."'
which added very much to the even
ing of religious thought.
