for a luncheon ticket.
"Five shillings," said the official.
"That's rather a lot, isn't it?" inquir

worth thousands of pounds. And those

again asked for a luncheon ticket and
tendered half a crown.
"I've already told you, sir," said Hie
steward, "that the charge is five shil

only want half a crown's worth today.

Wednesday morning at his home, four
miles west of Monroe Mr. Pugeley was
born in New York and came to Nebraska
and this locality in 1885, when the family
located in Genoa. Later he moved with
them to the old home farm, just north of
his place, and lived there until his mar
riage to Miss Maude Green, who survives
him. when he moved to his present
home. For the last several months he
has been in poor health, which finally
developed into Brigl'e disease, and this
was the cause of his death. He bad been
in Columbus at the hospital for some
time, bnt he could find no relief. Fun
eral services were held Friday afternoon
at 2:30 from the home, and were con

It has been suggest ed by a member of
the Monroe Commercial club that the
board of directors call a meeting and till
the vacancy on the board, and also ar
range for the annual meeting and elec

some time in February. It is noue too
early to begin to get ready for this an
nual meeting, and it has also been sug.
gested that this event be made one that
will mark a long step forward in the pro-grt-s
of thucluh. A banquet could be
held in the Monroe hall and one or two
speakers from abroad secured for the oc
casion, whose talk would be not only in
structive bnt beneficial, in that it would
be along the line of what other commer
cial clubs over the state are doing. The
annual meeting always renews interest
in the work of the club and fosters the
spirit of getting together to work for
the good of the town.
