LAWYERS AS WOOD CHOPPERS.
From Saturday's Pallv.
One of the solutions of the prob
lem.; of securing wood choppers seems
to be that of having the members of
the bar (not the mahogany) take up
the work as several of the members
of the logul fraternity have devel
oped an unusual talent for the chop
ping of wood. Attorney Charles E.
Martin is one of the chief ax wield
ers cf the Cass county bar association
and is making things hum at his
home on Pearl street where he has a
number of trees that are useless and
he is now busily engaged in cutting
these down and in a short time will
have a nice supply" of wood laid up
for his use and at the cost of only a
little spare time and muscle. Charley
says it is excellent exercise and helps
put the high cost cf fuel down.

Many physlcianes believe that any
one who has a bad cold should be
completely isolated to prevent other
members of the family and associ

colds are about as catching as meas
les. One thing sure the sooner one
rids himself of a cold the less the
danger, and you will look a good

ENJOY FINE EVEN
ING LAST NIGHT
Intermediate Department of Presby
terian Sunday School Have
From Saturday's Daily.
The Intermediate department of
the Presbyterian Sunday school en
joyed a very pleasant time Thursday
evening when they participated in a
sleighing partyand closed the even
ing with a big oyster supper which
was thoroughly enjoyed by the young
people. The members of the party
occupied two of the big old-fashioned
bob sleds, one of which was acting
as a trailer of a high powered auto
bile of J. F. Wolff and this served to
take the young people spinning across
the snowy roads of the city and vicin
ity of Murray and served to make
several hours very enjoyable to the
Jolly party of young, people. After
the delights of sleighing and with
appetites whetted by the cold and
sharp winter air the young people
were invited to the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Charles L. Creamer where a fine
oyster supper was awaiting them and
it is needless to say that they did
ample justice to the fine feast that
had been prepared for them.
The young people spent the re
mainder of the evening in music and
games and it was unanimously voted
that this had been one of the most
pleasant occasions in the history of
the Intermediates and they are hope
ful for many more such happy events
in the future.

BENSON DEFEATED BY SCORE OF
33 TO 22 IN HARD FOUGHT
GAME LAST NIGHT.
LOCALS SHOW UP STRONG
First Team Players Show Speed and
Skill in Game. That Surprises
Coaches and Followers.
From Saturday's Dally.
Last evening the Benson five
journeyed down to mix up things
with the team representing the local
high school but the result was in
their defeat by the score of 33 to 22
The game was snappy and hard
fought from the first but the decided
superiority of the locals was evident
from the manner in which the plays
of the visitors were blocked and in
the throwing of baskets and in the
first half the visitors were able
to secure only one field goal and four
fouls. In the second half the substi
tute players of the Plattsmouth
team were placed in the game and
allowed the visitors to annex several
additional baskets and made the
bcore more even and for a short time
the spurt of the visitors looked as
though they might get away with
the goods but the lead secured was
too much for them to overcome. Cal
vert Brown, captain and left for
ward of the visitors, was easily the
star of his team and secured a large
number of the goals made by Ben
son and scored all the field goals for
his team, six of which were thrown
in the last half. Captain Brown was
also very accurate in placing the foul

wards of the regular team made a
splendid record and their playing
demonstrated their ability in the bas
ket ball work. Hallas also in his
initial appearance on the floor made
good and undoubtedly will be given
a place on the regular lineup of the
High school team' for the sason.
Bookmeyer was also one of the clev
er players for the locals and his work
aided In the victory secured.
Following the basket ball game
the box supper given under the aus
pices of the junior class of the
school was given and the first part
of the program was occupied by a
very interesting entertainment pre
pared by the young people of the
High school and which was very en
joyable and a fitting opening for the
pleasant evening that followed. The
array of beautiful boxes, filled to the
brim with many good things to eat
was however the chief feature of the
evening and the result of the work
of Auctioneer Rex Young brought to
the junior class the sum of 998.60
which will be applied on the fund
for the Junior-senior banquet to be
held this winter. The bidding for
the various boxes was quite spirited
and the young men were right on the
job in securing the dainty and at
tractive boxes prepared by the. girls
for the big event. Owing' to the late
ness of the hour the beauty contest
was not held and proved a sad dis
appointment to the young people
who had anticipated much pleasure
in this feature of the evening.
