CASE GOES TO THE
JURY FOR DECISION
Suit of Annie Dollie Gaster vs. Wood
men of World is Argued by
Attorneys This Morning.
Kr.ini Saturday's Dully.
This afternoon the case of Annie
lo!lie Gaster vs. the Woodmen of
fhr; World, was given to the jury
following the arguments of the at
torneys in the triangle ruit.
i'ayment of the insurance policy
was contested by the defendant com
pany on the grounds that the late
Mr. (taster had made false state
ments in his application and also
th.it he had met death by suicide.
This stand w;ls opposed by Attor
ney Matthew Gering for Mrs. Gaster
and Attorney George Tunnison. of
Omaha, who represented the mother
of the deceased man, as intervenor,
contesting with the widow for the
amount of the policy. Both the
plaintiff and intervenor contend the
application was in proper form and
that the deceased came to his death
fn in natural causes.
The mother, who is intervening in
the case, denied the validity of the
marriage existing between Mr. and
a great deal of money and is one of
the most important steps that have
hoen made toward beautifying the
.-.urroundings of the Masonic Home.
Heretofore the travelers through
the city on the trains have had a
mere glimpse of the very handsome
home buildings and the chief sight
has been the foreground of sheds and
buildings and bank of dirt and these
will be willed out if the present plans
carry out as they seem assured of doing.

well pleased at having secured it
for this city.
