The supreme court heard argu

of Elmont Preston, convicted in Buf
falo county of having adulterous re
lations with an eighteen years old
girl named Margery Hays. Preston
was before the court only a few
months ago, when his conviction in
Otoe county for wife and child aban
donment was set aside. The present
prosecution was by his wife. The
Hays girl lived at Pleasanton, and
the state claimed that he was a fre
quent visitor at the home, that ' he
took the girl on a ten day automo
bile trip, that he was present a few
hours after her child was born. Her
parents, it was asserted, protected
Preston thruout the case. The attor

after being in 4 years, for the sim-
j pie reason that 1 will be 19 years
I old January 1. 1922. As I cannot be
a mfiiiuer oi me i'lg ciui iiesi jtrar
1 do not tb-ink that I will forget all
about it for I will try and get all
' ia the Pig club as possible. I think
all the boys and girls who are in
the Pig club will feel like I do, that
they owe it a great many thanks.
That is if they will have any where
as much success in the hog business
as I have had. The way 1 have made
mv siirpfst was liv tho fnlV ursine' 1
me to buy pure bred sow pigs for
the Pig club. I did not think very
much about it when I first started.
June 30, 1918, for $25. She weighed
00 pounds. I fed her all thrt sum
mer and she put on 1.7 pounds a
day. Every time I went to feed her
1 got to thinking more about the Pig
club and I also acquired a liking for
the hog business. I showed her that
fall at the County and Precinct show.
On March 1919 she farrowed me a
litter of pigs (11) and I saved 9 of
them. 5 of them were boars and the
rest were sows. I entered all 9 of
them in the Pig club. I showed 2 of
them at the State Fair and 3 of them
at the County Fair. I sold all 5 boars
?nd kept the sow pigs.
The next year, March 1920, she
farrowed me a litter of 12 pigs. Out
of these I saved 7 sows and 3 boars.
1 put 4 sows and 1 boar in the Pig
club that year. This year I showed
at the State and County Fairs and
the Interstate Fair at Sioux City.
That fall she farrowed me a litter of
16 pigs.
I think when a person gets a good
rroducing sow that he ought to keep
her as long as possible. I have bought
2 boars since I started, paid $75 for
one an3 $150 for the other. I sold
J the $75 one for $S and I still have
a $150 for the other. Since I entered
the Pig club and got started in the
pure bred hog business, I have sold
14 head of registered hogs for $884.
50 and 45 on the market. I have 140
head of hogs now that are all re
lated to Pansy except the herd boar.
I have been offered $750 for her and
I think she is worth that to me.
.During the 4 years in the Pig club
I have won 55 ribbons at Fairs in
the Pig club and also in open class
t'ansy has raised all tne pigs tnai
won these ribbons. These ribbons in
cluded 2 grand champions. 3 junior
champions. 22 firsts. 10 seconds. 6
thirds. 6 fourths. 3 fifths. 2 sixths,
and 1 seventh. These ribbons amount
to $356. Besides these I have won
one trophy and the last two years I
have won a free trip to the Boys and
Girls week at the College of Agri
culture. If it had not been for the
Pig club I suppose I would not own
a pig or care in the least for one. So
that makes one feel that the Pig
rlub is one of the best things going
for boys and girls. I wish the best
success to all the boys and girls in
the Pig club.
The Pig clubs of Cass County will
loose one of their best members. Har
ry was a member of the first Pig
club the Cass County Farm Bureau
organized and we are mighty proud
I to own him.

R. Pierscn, Former Union Ranker,
Finds His Oklahoma Interests
Deeded to Others.
From Tuesday's Dally.
The Cass county friends of John
R. Pierson, former well known bank
er of Union, and later of Table Rock
and Tecumseh, and now located at
Auburn, will be surprised to learn
that this gentleman has been called
to Oklahoma to investigate the work
ings of a confidence man in that ter
ritory and which has involved the
land-interests of Mr. Pierson.
It seems from the reports that have
reached Mr. Pierson that this party
operating in Oklahoma has in a very
bold manner sold and deeded away
certain of the lands belonging to
Mr. Pierson, without the knowledge
or consent of the Netraska man.
The operation of the smooth gen
tleman was different from that of
the ordinary "blue Fky" operator,
as he did not sell an equity in any
thing, but boldly went ahead and
sold the land itself, although he had
no more right to it than the man iirl
the moon.
It was the practice, it is stated, of
the swindler to represent himself as
the owner of the. lands that he had
picked on and to hunt up a purchas
er, close the deal for the 'land and
execute a deed which was turoed
over to the unsuspecting purchaser.
In the closing of the deal the man
would go so far as to steal a no
tarial seal in the ma'klug of the ac
knowledgements to the instruments.
Mr. Pierson was not fully advised
as to how the deals were carried out,
but has hurried to Newoka, Okla
homa, near where his land inter
ests are located in order to have the
fraudulent transactions set aside and
the land restored.

Yesterday William Smith, one of
the prominent young men about
town, had a close call from being
overcome by gas. Mr. Smith was en
gaged in taking a bath and in the
fmall room was a gas heater used to
heat the water and this was very an
noying with the odor of gas tout
nothing was thought of -the matter
by the young man until he had been
in the tiro for a few mintites when
his head began to feel the effects of
the gas and by. the time he was able
to dress and get out of the room lie
was almost overcome. On reaching
his home he was unable to "-limb tho
stairs leading to the apartments ol
the family and his condition became
fuch that it was necessary to sum
mon a physician to treat the young
man and a few minutes more of the
gas and be would have been in very
l'-ad shape.
