CAMP NO. 332.
From Thursday's Dfcily.
The members of Cass Camp No.
332. Modern Woodmen of America,
enjoyed a line meeting last evening
at the lodge rooms in the Woodmen
building and on which occasion C. E.
Kenner, national lecturer of the or
der was present to address the mem
bers and the new officers of the camp
were duly installed.
The installation ceremony was con
ducted by Mr. Kenner and the follow
ing officers were inducted into ofiice:
Carl F. Schmidtmann. venerable con
sul; George Klinger, worthy advisor;
H. F. Goos, clerk; William Hassler.
banker; H. S. Wilcox, escort; Henry
Nolting. inner sentinel; William
Nolting. outer sentinel.
Following this ceremony the mem
bership which was quite extensively
representd at the meeting enjoyed
the opportunity of hearing Mr. Ken
ner for some time on the growth and
work of the Modern Woodmen of
America in the fraternal field, bo'.h
as the means of protection to the
members and their families and as
the saver of lives by their wonderful
war on the great white plague,
which they have conducted at the
Colcrauo sanitarium of the order.
In spite of the oft repeated state
ments made by other insurance or
ganizations that it was necessary to
die in order to secure a return from
the Woodmen. Mr. Kenner pointed
out the fact that this was not true
and that the order was one of the
greatest factor'- of aid in the country
for its members. Under the seventy
year withdrawal plan the members
are given permission to draw out
what they have paid into the order
and with interest and during all the
years they have enjoyed the protec
tion of the insurance of the company
in case of their death. Not alone
was this opportunity given the mem
bers to withdraw their investment
from the order but the Woodmen had
also perfected a great sanitarium in
the Colorado foothills where the
dread malady of consumption was
fought and where 5.000 lives had
been saved to humanity by the treat
ment afforded the order and which
to a member of the order was given
free of all cost. Mr. Kenner pointed
out that this sanitarium, which was
the greatest of its kind in the coun
try had been built by the contribu
tion each month by the members of
three cents from their assessment
and which had grown into one of
the greatest humantarian projects in
the nation.
The speaker also complimented the
Plattsmouth camp on the beautiful
building that they now own and
which is the only structure of its
kind in the jurisdiction of Nebraska
and he stated that the members of
Cass camp could feel well proud of
the building and the city feel proud
of the enterprise and push of the
Woodmen who had carried out the
building project.
Urging the boost of membership
Mr. Kenner started the ball rolling
for an Increase of 100 in the member
ship of the local camp before the next
year should roll around and the local
officers will continue the campaign
to a successful finish.
From Thursday's raily.
The Union Pacific railroad system
announced yesterday at their offices
in Omaha, the establishment of a
five day week over the system that
will apply to track and shop work
men, and is taken as a measure of
economy and also to prevent the lay
ing off of men in the employe of the
company by extending the one day
fayof? a week over the entire work
ing force and thereby eliminating
the necessity of forcing a part of
the force into a permanent layoff.
The U. P. has decided that Thursday
of each week will be a holiday and
therefore all work in the shops and
track forces except that absolutely
necessary will be eliminated.
"Most of the other big railroads!
the country have not only adorJf
the five-day week." said W. H. Guild,
assistant to Vice-President Calvin, in
charge of operation, this mortfiyg
"but have fired thousands of men in
addition. We do not wish to- cause
any hardship to our faithful employes
so have merely cut one working
day each week. Thursday in this case,
among all track and shop workers
where safety will permit."
Section gangs along the line will
lay off on this day, the same as the
shopmen, except in emergencies when
the cause of safety will not permit
the extra "vacation."

Washington. D. C. Jan. 26. It
would be a "fatal mistake" to stop
work for six months on the six great
battle cruisers under construction for
the American navy. Secretary Daniels
said today in discussing Senator Bor
ah's resolution, adopted yesterday
by the senate, asking the senate naval
committee whether it would be feas
ible and advisable to stop naval
building for that length of time.
The naval secretary deprecated any
suggestion that capital ships be
abandoned in favor of submarine and
aircraft. Mr. Daniels added that an
other year would show the trend of
world navies as to any new type of
ships to be adopted and that mean
time the United States should go
ahead with the battle cruisers, as
the American navy hag none of this
type In commission.
The village of Murdock was visit
ed by a destructive fire on Wednes
day night and as the result of which
the fine new residence of Jerry Mc
Hugh, one of the leading merchants
of that place, was entirely destroyed
by the flames.
The fire had gained great head
way when discovered and it was im
possible to check the spread of the
blaze although the residents of Mur
dock battled manfully to save the
building and its contents. Through
the efforts of the neighbors the fur
niture on the first floor was saved,
but the contents of the upper floor
were swept away in the flames, leav
ing a loss of $2,500 for the owner of
the building. The residence was
rated at $3,500 and on this an in
surance policy of $2,500 was carried.
Mrs. Mcllugh had left her watch and
a number of diamond rings in the
sleeping rooms on the second floor
and these with the clothing of the
members of the family were lost in
the fire and will run the loss up to

to the party carrying the lamp, some
of the clothing in the closet caught
fire and caused the destruction of
the house as it was only a short time
afterwards that the blaze was dis
covered and it seems to have origi

had been taken.
Mr. McHugh was in Omaha at the
time attending the retailers' conven

aid was possible in fighting the
flames, but it was impossible to do
any effective work on account of the

Mrs. C. S. Aldrich of Elmwood,
who has had a great deal of success
in her literary work and is a frequent
contributor to the leading magazines
of the country has just had a very
interesting sketch published in the
American Magazine and in speaking
of the story the Elmwood Leader
Echo has the following:
"In the last number of the Ameri
can Magazine occurred a fine article
entitled "How I Mixed Stories With
Dougnuts." This is a personal
story regarding her career and es
pecially as a story writer. Mrs. Al
drich has sold over 60 stories and
most of us are familiar and have
been greatly pleased in reading the
delightful Mason Family stories that
have been printed in the American
"We were greatly interested in
this fine article. She knows how to
write, is so optomistic, loves life,
her family, and in fact looks upon
the bright side always. We were
somewhat amused whenshe says that
people of my community ever think
of me first as a writer. "If you were
to get off at our depot and ask for the
writer who lives here, I can imagine
our local Hod Beeson scratching his
head and trying to figure out whether
you meant the correspondent for the
i state paper, or the editor of the
i Leader-Echo, or me." We are mighty
iglad for this complement for we con
'sider it a compliment.
"Mrs. Aldrich writes under the
name of Bess Streeter Aldrich. She
is a great writer and has interested
many people both in this country and
foreign countries. Her stories are
full of human interest and they will
do anyone good to read them.
We are glad that we have a real
writer in Elmwood."

vincible Elks by 28 to 24.
From Friday's Daily.
The basket ball enthusiasts who
attended the games at the high school
auditorium last evening had one of
the surprises of their lives when the
Elks team which has heretofore led
the league was defeated by the Ea
gles, who have been holding down
the cellar position and as a result of
the battle the high school Reserves
now top the teams in the number of
victories won. The Eagles played a
fast and furious game and Burkle of
this team proved a whirlwind In se

The final score was 28 to 24 in favor
of the Eagles.
The second game the Reserves
stepped on the Morgan's by the score
of 30 to 23 and the contest was one
of the greatest interest although the
Morgan's were handicapped by the
smallness and quickness of their op
ponents which did not allow a strong
guard to be played against them as
would have been possible with a
larger team.
