NOVEL WILLMAY BE IN VAIN
Effort of .Rick Farmer to Evade Con
testa la Threatened with
The efforts of William Hopper, the
wealthy Elkhorn farmer, to ao devise his
property that hia will could not be con
tested after death may be In vain. Some
of the heirs, it is asserted, have employed
an attorney to look Into the will with a
view ttforutng, M provisions. General
John CV Cowln. who 'has been employed,
said Friday he had been examining the
will but Could not aay until later whether
any contest would be filed or not. General
Cowln is said to represent several of the
Mr. Hopper left hia property to his nine
children. Mrs. I-omlla McLean, a daugh
ter, Is said to be one "of the dissatisfied
heirs. She will not under the provisions
of the will receive any of the property In
fee. The will provided for a trust of 15,000
and sixty-five acrea of land, the Income of
whteh is to go to her during her life and
at her death the property Is to descend to
her children. Bryan B. Hopptr, a son, was
left nothing by the will except what he
owned the estate for debts paid by his
father during the latter's lifetime. The
will provided these should be cancelled.
Daniel G. Hopper was given sixty-six
acrea of land, with a provision he should
pay Mrs. McLean in trust $5,000.
The other six children were given deeds
to property owned by the old gentleman,
the deeds being signed by him before his
death and transmitted to the executors In
a aealed package.
Mr. Hopper provided in hia will if any of
the children refused to accept the terms
of the testament and tried to break it they
should lose all their Interest In the prop
trty to the heirs who did not contest and
should receive only 1100 in money. The
estate is estimated to be worth l-W.OOO.
WHAT THE MARKET AFFORDS
Fruits that Will Supply the Demand
t'ntll tha Local Crop
Pears are to be more plentiful than they
have been, two carloads from Colorado
the first shipped from there this season
having arrived Friday morning. They are
selling wholesale for VI a box of from
twelve to fifteen doien. Colorado peachea
will come In the early part of next week
and will sell wholesule for about $1 a box.
The California crop of plums and prunea Is
about exhausted, which has advanced the
price of that fruit, but Idaho, Utah and
Colorado will begin shipping aoon. Peaches
will last until late In September.
Grape will begin coming in next week,
but they will be more scarce than usual.
The hall did heavy damage to the local
crop which will little more than supply the
local demand. Muskat grapes from Cali
fornia are In and sell wholesule for $1.50 a
crate of four basketa. Tokay grapes will
be In the middle of September.
Cantaloupea are not altogether satisfac
tory Just now aa the home crop ia Inferior
to the shipped melon, which earns earlier
In the season. Rocky Ford melons are atlll
going east and the dealers say It will be the
last of August before they begin coming
to the local market. The cool weather haa
decreased the demand for watermelons,
which are selling cheaper, good melons
being sold for centa retail.
Homegrown tomatoea are especially good
now and are selling wholesale for 76 cents
a market basket.
Women who have been looking out for
little pickles to put up are going to be dis
appointed. There have been very few and
no more are expected. Pickles for dill are

LINCOLN. Aug. 20. - Tlarry Culver,
Omalia. Neb.: NutifU-Htion committee will
arrive in Omaha by automubile 6 tonight,
Henshaw hotel. Arab Patrol.
This teli gram was received by "Captain'"
Harry Culver at his office In the Paxton
block Just before 6 o'clock Thursday even
ing. It was a mystery to him. He did not
know whether lie liuu been nominated on
the lithlu na'.cr ticket or appointed sultan
But it was evident that a notification
committee was coming to vlalt him to
break the news to him eoout something.
It was to be a genuine surprise, no make
believe notifUatlon like Mr. Taft received
and he rather leared a pumpkin show
such as Mr. Hran had. Whatever H was
the tommittee was going to convey to hiiti
was unknown to him und had not been
discussed in the newspapers for several
H t! "Captain" Culver was on. With
Sherlock Holmes Instinct he realized that
th co.nmltte which was to visit him was
very likely a aiiiad of I'nlted States in
ternal revenue officers after him for sell
ing lithia water without green stamps.
The captain decided to duck. He wouid
not he surrounded by federal officials If
lie knew it, "Arab Patrol" wus Just a
niBe to catch him napplntr'. or else there
had been a horrible mistake.
So the captain ducked.
Out at the Happy Hollow club he kept
out of sight and with Mrs. Culver t'J"k a
long walk through the woods, something
ho had not done for years.
It was Just 7:3'J when two hie automo
biles pulled up at the Henshaw hotel.
Both chug-wagons seemed weary. The
party registered from Lincoln, tin following
"noble" writing their nanus across the
big book in unsteady hands: C. C. juit;glc.
W. C. Shlnn. Dr. S. 8. Shean. Alhtrt lavis.
W. H. Hawes. Jack Matthews. William
Dunster. Kred Kunk and Victor Seymour.
But the patrol could not find Captain
Culver. They explained that they were the
notification committee from Sesnstri Tem
ple, Noble of the Mystic Shrine, and as
Culver hacl been elected cuptuln of the
patrol for another year, even though he
moved to Omaha, they hud come all the
way from Lincoln to break the news to
him nith a stick of dynamite.
The search for Culver availed nothing
and the patrol waited over until morning
and the notification was pulled off a 10
o'clock Friday morning in the captain'
office. The blinds were drawn bnd "All
Nebraaka" had no opportunity to "honor"
Culver the captain.
