AL ELECTION AT
ELECTORS OF STATE WILL BE
CALLED UPON IN REGARD TO
FUNDAMENTAL LAW . -

Problems Should Be Studied by Vot

This election is one that is not be

greater and important than that of
merely choosing some official to act
for the state during the coming two
years as the amendments affect the
law under which the people of the
state will live and through which
their government will operate for at
least the next twenty-five years and
it behooves the voters to exercise the

FORMER SOLON IS
NOW A PAUPER
Story of A. S. Cooley, Once Member of
Legislature and Wealthy Cas
From Satu"Jays Dally.
Old timers and former acquaint
ances will be interested to learn of
the present whereabouts of A. S.
Cooley, formerly one of our prom
inent farmers and stockmen, and
twice a member of the legislature
from Cass county. The Beacon
learns he is an " inmate of the poor
farm at Hutchison, Kansas.
We interviewed Ed Carr, who now
owns the old Cooley farm, and for-
merly worked for him and several
other old timers, and by piecing to
gether these reminiscences the story
appears about like this:
Cooley was a man of wealth in
those days, had a splendid family, but
a weakness for women and wine. Af
ter his service in the legislature
which was not noted for probity, he
moved his family to Lincoln. Just
how long after this we are not In
formed, he went east and in Ohio
passed himself off as a widower and
married a widow
The wife and one son still live
in Lincoln. Another son, Hal, who
visited Eagle a couple of years ago
was the first of the family to learn
of his father's bigamous conduct
While in Guide Rock, Hal made the
acquaintance of a young lady, who
noted the familiarity of the name
and laughingly remarked that her
mother had Just married a man
named A. S. Cooley back in Ohio. By
securing letters It was learned that
it was his father. The girl told her
mother, who promptly left Cooley.
The next heard of him he was in
Chicago driving a dray. Then he
drifted to California, where all trace
of him was lost several years ago.
He kept in touch with Eagle until
six or seven years ago, when his
lodge Insurance was defaulted.
Thus is again illustrated the in
exorable law of sin's paymaster.
HERE ON BRIEF VISIT.
From Saturday's Dally.
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Robeson came
In this morning on No. 5 for a few
days visit with old friends. Mose

up to go firing last November. He
goes through Plattsmouth often on
west bound freights, being employed
on the Creston division ..which was
his home prior to coming here in
1917. Mose is wearing a broad

the recent wage advance awarded
railroad employes and in which he
will share to the extent of consld-
rable back pay.
