From Thursday's Dally.
Last evening the members of Cas
Camp No. 332, Modern Woodmen ol
America held a very interesting ses
sion at their rooms in thev building
which the order has established in
this city as one of the monuments of
the order. Mr. Duffy is one of tin
most able speakers in the service ol
the M..W. A. and bis address last ev
ening was one followed with th
greatest of interest by the member
ship present. Mr. Duffy pointed out
that the statements that you had tc
die to secure the benefits of the or
der were not true: if a member of
the M. V. A. was suffering from tu
berculosis it was not necessary foi
' him to die to secure a benefit, as tht
order maintained a great sanitarium
in Colorado where the neighbor
might be treated absolutely free of
all cost while at a hospital he would
have to pay from $100 to $500 a
j week for his care- and treatment.
The seventy-year plan whereby the
Woodman would withdraw all that
he had paid into the beneficiary fund
gave the member an opportunity to
realize on his policy before death.
During all these years the member
had protected his family by his in
surance and might then realize on it
without the necessity of death.
Mr. Duffy also touched on the part
that this patriotic order had played
the war just closed when the head
camp had purchased over $4,000,000
worth of liberty bonds and 60,000
members of the Modern Woodmei
had served in the army and navy of
their beloved country and 2, COO had
made the supreme sacrifice. The M.
W. A. had made their policies on
the lives of the soldiers and sailor:
good and had paid out in losses from
the membership while in service,
The speaker also urged the order
to oppose the proposed bill that
would compel' the fraternal societies
to adopt the rates prepared by the
fraternal congress and which would
raise their rates to that of the old
line insurance company and deprive
, the poor man of the cheap insurance
that be enjoys in the fraternal or
der. Mr. Duffy also pointed out that
there was no sliding scale in the pay
ment of death claims. If you were
insured in tjie M". W. A. today and
died tomorrow the full value of the
policy would be paid, as the rates of
the M. W. A. were so adjusted a
to provide ample funds to care for

John Richardson, the ferryman, is

those who have evinced an interest
in the water sports. Last season Mr.
Richardson did not get the bathing

The reports from the Immanuel
hospital in Omaha state that Mrs.
Roy Mayfield who is in that institu

a very severe operation for gall
stones, is now showing marked im
provement and her family and
friends are feeling well pleased with
the prospects for her early recovery.
It is hoped that Mrs. Mayfield may

ty and that was that at the time of
a heavy rain all automobiles parked
on Main street should be gotten off
the street. Just where to have them
parked is a problem that is giving
the city authorities not a little
thought. The unfortunate fact that
it has been necessary to have the
Main street made a natural water
course also makes it necessary to see
that this watercourse is kept open
in time of heavy rains when the
great volume of water from the hills
sweeps down the street to the river.
The auto owners themselves should
realize the importance of getting the
cars off Main street at the time of a
real heavy rain as Tuesday a great
ileal of damage was done to cars by
the water which was . so high as to
severe rain is certainly out of luck
