tant of the American Lesion ha
written his acceptance of the invita
tion of the local post to be in at
tendance at the ex-service tnen'p re
union and banquet on" Wednesday
evening. March 15th.
O'Connell i.s one of the "Bucks"
who are prominent in state Lesion
activities and like Ed McDernmtt. of
Kearney, is proud of the fact that the j
did not attain to the rank of com
missioned officer. lie was among the
organizers of the Lincoln post and
when the state organization was ef
fected became ftate adjutant, which
position he has since retained.
O'Connell has had extensive ex
perience in post activities and will
deliver a snappy ten minute talk on
that subject at the banquet.
Coupled with 4he attendance of
State Commander Ritchie, there will
be present the two head officials of
the state Legion organization and it
is expected several hundred ex-service
men from all over the county will be
here for the occasion.
State Intervenes in the Case of Minor

Fred Hirz all motored to Omaha,
where they will spend the day with
Mrs. William Wetenkamp, Elmer
Wetenkamp and Fred Hirz. all of
whom are at the Immanuel hospital
recovering from operations.
A petition has been filed in the
office of the clerk of the district
court by the State of Nebraska in
which the court is asked to take the
custody of Hulda, Irvin. Marie, Ruth
and Orville Warner from their par
ents, Frank and Mary Warner and
give the children into the custody of
the Ftate for care and rearing. The
petition alleges that the children are
neglected and that the parents have
failed to give them the proper rear
ing and therefore the court is prayed
to place the children somewhere for
the purpose of proper bringing up.
The mother of the children is an
invalid and her physical condition is
such as will not permit her to look
after the training of the children.
The family reside in the vicinity
of Elmwood.

The committee of the Ad club in
charge of the Bargain Wednesday
community sales has arranged a new"
feature that will be of great interest
to the general public and especially
those vho have anything they would
like to dispose of at public auction.
The room of the M. K. Smith com
pany on lower Main street has been
secured for the use of the auction
und here W. R. Young, the famous
Nebraska auctioneer will preside for
three sales on Wednesday, March 15,
one being from 9 to 10 a. m., one
from 1 to 2,p. m. and one from 8:30
to 9:30.
Mr. Young will sell anything from
a needle to a Cass county farm and
those who are desirious of disposing
of any of the odds or ends around the
house or farm should bring it in.
The auctioneer will make no
charge aside from a five per cent
commission bn the articles sold and
this is certainly a golden opportunity
for "the residents of the county to
bring in the articles they may desire
to dispose of. There will be no mer
chandise sold at the sale from the
business houses of the city, and every
article -offered will be sold and no
bye-bids allowed, so that if an article
! placed on the block it i3 going to
be disposed of.
Those who desire to sell anything
may do so by getting in touch with
Fred P. Busch, secretary of the Ad
club and the room will be opened for
the storage of articles for the sale.
Live stock will also be looked after
in the proper manner by the Ad club
until the day of the big sale.
With the usual array of real bar
gains in the stores and the chance
to pick up many offerings at the
auction, this should be one of the
big days in the history of the city.

Percy A. Warthen Dies Last Evening
at the Clarkson Hospital in
Omaha After Long Illness;
Last evening the long and brave
fight for life that Percy A. Warthen
of this city has made for life was
brought to a close when the young
man passed away at the Clarkson
hospital in Omaha where he has re
cently underwent a series or very
severe operations. The illness of
Percy dates back to the early part of
1918, when he was afflicted with a
mastoid while in the army and he
has since undergone a number of op
erations, in the hopes of giving-him
some ielief but -without avail. Fol
lowing his operations at Omaha his
conditions was so weakened that
blood transfusions were necessary
and the brother, Webster Warthen,
gave a great deal of his blood in the
hopes of aiding in the recovery of
the brother but without avail.
Percy A. Warthen was a son of
Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Warthen, and
was born March 9, 1895. and has
spent the greater part of his lifetime
in this city. When the United States
entered the World War, Percy, like
many of the patriotic youth of the
land, heard the call of his country
and volunteered July 17,1917, in the
6th Nebraska infantry and in com
pany with some forty others from
Cass county was assigned to the ma
chine gun comfjany' of the regiment
and accompanied the organization to
Deming, New Mexico, where they
were located at Camp Cody. In the
first part of 1918 the young man
was taken with a severe mastoid and
sent to the camp base hospital where
he was operated upon and where for
a number of weeks his life hung on
a thread, and -on his "being able - to
leave the hospital he was given a
discharge on account of physical dis
ability and deprived of the privilege
of accompanying his company, on
their departure for overseas. Return
ing home he was engaged in work
in Omaha for-a greater part of the
time until frequent re-occurrences of
his malady made necessary his re
turn to the hospital where he passed
To mourn the death of this splen
did young man there remain besides
the parents, eIx brothers and four
sisters, Roy Warthen, Chicago; Har
ry Warthen. Omaha; Webster, Cal
vin and Norman, Plattsmouth; John
Warthen, Omaha; Mrs. Josephine
Carson, O'Neill, Nebraska; Mrs.

ing his stay there.
- The many friends of Mr. Short are

Good Plowing in
the Toughest Soils
IF YOU'VE lost your patience while trying to turn ovef
tough soil of any kind, you'll appreciate knowing that there
is a combination of tools that will make this work easy. The
Fordson tractor will supply plenty of power, and an Oliver
D-72 disc plow will turn over the soil.
We've made a specialty of getting the right tools to do the
best work behind Fordson tractors, and our recommendation
for the difficult plowing in this section is the Oliver D-72. This
plow is made specially to go with the Fordson tractor. It is
light, yet so rugged that you don't need to worry about hard
plowing. It is made to do the hardest plowing on your farm.
With this outfit, you may be able to crop some land that;
you have never been able to use before.
