ELKS GUNNING FOR
75 NEW MEMBERS
Still Have Boom, for Accommodation
- of Good Material Planning a
Big; Class Initiation.
From Wednesday's Dally.
During the year ending April 1st,
1920. we have added upwards of 50
members to our local order. The new
officers are all in their respective
places and "rarin' to go."
The Exalted Ruler has appointed
a committee known as the "75 Mem
bers in . 36 Days Committee." This
committee is charged with the task
of getting 75 applications in the giv
en time, following which a big class
initiation will be put on and everything-
that goes with it will be pro
vided. It is the desire of those in charge
to make this the greatest event ever
staged at the Elks liome. Each mem
ber is asked to bring at least one
application. But members must be
very sure in accepting applications
that the candidates are desirable ma
terial for membership. We are large
enough now s'o far as our memb-ir-fchip
affording sufficient dues to keep
the lodge running nicely, but ther?
are many men of high standing n
the community, under our jurisdic
tion, who have not yet" identified
themselves with us as memotrs of
the Elks lodge- men wholes n give
us ranch help in the work to which
our order Is dedicated. We will al
ways lie glad to recede applications
from such' men.
We want none but the best Amer
ican citizens be they rich or p.--.-J.

ASKS FOR AN ACCOUNTING
Prom Wednesday's Dally.
In the district court Claus Speck
through his attorney, Matthew Ger
ing, has filed an action against
Charles Hixon in which the plain
tiff asks for an accounting of a part
nership existing between the parties
to the suit. In the petition of the
plaintiff it is stated that an oral
agreement was entered into in March
1916, whereby the plaintiff was to
supply the defendant with stock,
seeds, farming equipment and other
needed articles to conduct a. farm
on the island southeast of this city
which Is owied by the plaintiff. In
return the defendant was to farm
the island and care for the stock
and crops and the profits derived
from the farm were to' be divided on
the fifty-fifty proposition. The
plaintiff claims this has not been
done and that the interests of the
plaintiff demand that a receiver or
trustee be appointed to adjust the
affairs of the partnership and make

Married Fifty-Four Years
On last Thursday, April 8, Martin
VanBueren Wood and his good wife,
Marcia M. Will, nee McBride, cele
brated the 54th anniversary of their
wedding day, they having been mar
ried shortly following the close of
the civil war at Filmore, Mo., where
they continued to reside some three
years, when they returned to their
former home at Payne's Point, 111.,
some distance northwest of 'Chicago.
In 1870, Mr. Wood came west and
filed on a homestead one mile south
of "Buahberry," then the trading
center of this wild and undeveloped
country, and which old residents will
recall as being located some four
miles west of Wabash. The follow
ing year, the family came and or
some twelve years Mrs. Wood taught
school In this country. At the time
of the great bliaaard in-1888, sho
was teacher of the Andy Zoz school
and came near losing ber life when
attempting to return to her board
ing place from the school bouse.
This venerable couple is living ,
quietly in Wabash where they have.
the love and respect of a large num
ber of friends. They have five
children, three daughters and two
sons. They are Mrs. Ella McCaig,
widow of Joseph McCaljr, living at
York; M. V.v Wood. Jr., of Bruns
wick; John H. Wood, of Wabash,
where he is engaged in the automi
bile business; Mrs. Grace Stanton,
of Lincoln, and Miss Myrtle M. Wood
who is rural free delfvery carrier
from the Wabash pos toff ice.
Mrs. Wood has just passed her
77th milestone, and seems full of
life and god nature yet, while her
genial husband has pasued his 82nd
year and is enjoying life greatly.
IN SOUTHWEST POOR
A. S. Will, Just Returned From Mex
ican Border Reports Oldahoma and
Southern Kansas Very Dry
From Wednesday's Dalty.
A. S. Will, who has just returned
home from a few days visit in the
southwest that took him through the
states of Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas
and a portion of New Mexico, re
ports the crop conditions there
quite poor and especially in Kan
sas and Oklahoma. From McPher
son, Kansas, south, the weather has
been decidedly dry and the result
has been that the wind storms of
the spring have caused a great deal
of damage to the wheat which has
in a great many localities been blown
out of the ground. The portion of
Texas which was visited by Mr. Will
is largely used as grazing land and
of course has not suffered as se
verely as the' farming lands of Okla
homa and Kansas. In New Mexico
the grazing land was in excellent
shape due to rains through that us
ually arid country and the condi
tions there are the best for several
years. Mr. Will found the conditions
at the border as usual unsettled and
in Sonora, Mexico, the revolt of that
state from the Mexican federal gov
ernment seems to be growing and
the conditions filled with uncertain
ty. This is one of the wealthiest
sections of Mexico and in which
Americans have a great deal of in

RETURNS FROM THE HOSPITAL
From' Wednesday's Pally.
Yesterday afternoon Robert Pat
terson returned home from the
Birchmont hospital in Omaha, where
he has been since his accident of two
weeks aeo and which resulted in
such serious injury. The case pf Mr
Patterson has progressed to such an
extent that the attending surgeons
at the hospital were of the opinion
that be could be as well cared for at
the home and accordingly Mr. W. D
Wheeler, father-in-law of the unfor
tunate young man visited Omaha
and returned home with him. Bob
is still far from recovered from the
effects of the injury that resulted in
a severe fracture of the skull as well
as the breaking of bis left arm and
it will be several weeks at least be
fore he is able to show much im
provement but in the restful quiet
of the home it is hoped to nurse
him back to health.

NORRIS SPEAKS AT
Nebraska Senator Talks on Behalf
of Hiram Johnson's Presi
Blair, April 13. Senator George
W. Norris spoke at the Blair opera
house tonight to the largest audi
ence that has attenedd a political
meeting here since the campaign of
1S96. Senator Norris spoke in be
half of the candidacy of Senator
Hiram Johnson of California for the
presidency; he compared the record
of Senator Johnson and Senator
Hitchcock by the votes on amend
ments of the revenue bill of 1917
stating that had the bills introduced
or supported by Senator Johnson
been "enacted they would have raised
over four billions in excess war pro
fits taxes, cutting the issuance of
bonds to that amount. Senator
Norris contends that the issuance of
bonds and extravagance of the dem
ocratic administration is one of the
causes of the high cost of living and
advocates publicity of income tax
reports as one method of smoking
out the profiteers and also curbing
expense of government in reference
to the treaty of peace and the league
of nations. Senator Norris said that
it would have been as easy to dis
arm ourselves and the nations of the
world at Versailles as it was to dis
arm Germany. But instead the self
appointed autocrats who wrote the
treaty divided the earth among
themselves and made of it the most
dishonorable international disgrace
ever put together by man and in
closing said that Orlando of Italy
and Clemenceau of France had been
overthrown, Lloyd-George saw the
hand writing on the wall and that
President .Wilson was watchfully
waiting for the time to step down
