Mr. and Mr. William Graff Reunited
After Divorce. i
IMdle-Agrd Connie, Who Tried to
I. ! Apart Are Ite-marrled by
', Justice Ciroprr.
A simple wedding In the office of Justice
Jooper youterday reunited a family which
CSs dlvoro court a, year or mora ago lad
Blsrupted. The hands of both the man and
the Woman were hardened by toll, their
faces corrugated by more than fifty yearn
of battla with the world but their hearts
were bounding; with the Joyful emotions
that were stirred years ago when they
atood before a clergyman and assumed
the solemn vows to love and cherish each
other's Joys and sorrows for many years.
But when both had passed the prime of life
end their Journeys lay toward the shadows
f the foothills apparently Irreconcilable
difficulties arose which ended In the wife's
appeal to the divorce court. A decree of
absolute divorce was granted her on March
2, 1909. The husband, silent and gray, made
no defence and the suit went by default.
Yesterday the couple ' entered the court
house, as nearly hand. In hand as the pro
prieties permitted, and ' In almost eager
haste asked License Clerk Tracy Rodwell
to Issue them a marriage license. The pre
liminary questions were satisfactorily
answered but the hands of both trembled
as they affixed their signatures to the mar
riage license record. When they . turned
from the counter they bore a certificate au
thorizing the marriage of William Gruff,
Councll Bluffs, aged 51, and Christina Oroff
Council Bluffs,, 60 years old.,
Holding H closely with the hands of both
touching it, they hastened to the office of
Justice Cooper In the basement of the
building and there again renewed their
vows, . placing the utmost unction on the
1ponse -uniu aeatn ao us part." No hap-

husband the por .sslon of eighty acres of
rich, Iowa farm' land, as well as the old
home with all It treasured, memories and
household goods. When the divorce decree
was granted the wife asked for and was

Special Treat Will He Afforded
AniwiiiHl Lovers Tomorrow
Wheu They Come.
If newspaper accounts be true there is a
special treat in store for amusement lovers
when the great Hells-Kioto shows reach
Council Bluffs on Saturday morning for a
Blngle day'a engagement.
The record achieved by the mugniflcent
western attraction this year has been the
mcst remarkable in the history of the big
tents. No circus ever turned away so
many people and no show has given half
as much universal satisfaction.
In the first place, the Sells-Floto people
believe In the doctrine of popular prices.
Thy have made history in this respect,
and, secondly, they control the most per
fectly organized circus in the world. The
Armour team, the Nelson family, the
Davenports, the Normans, the Melnotts,
Spader Johnson and Lon Moore, emperors
of the laugh Idea; the Borslnls, Dollle
Julia, Fred Ledgett, the Ouloe family, the
Flying Herberts, the twin baby elephants
all these and many more prove the caliber
of the show.
The parade at Council Bluffs will take
place at 1 o'clock Saturday. The seat sale
at Clark's drug store.

Good Roads, Speed Track and Auto
Beg-ulation Talked Over.
Kearly Kvery dpraker Kmphaelaed
Need of Confining; Fast Uolna" to
Tracks In Interest of People
and Motorists.
The first dinner to be given by the
Omaha Motor club was held In the garden
of Hotel Rome last evening, and the agita
tion for good roads In this city snd over
tho state, for a race track upon which
large meets may be held, and for the pro
motion df endurance runs, hill climbs and
the regulation of speeding, was dealt with
at length by those who responded to toasts.
D. Q. O'Brien acted as toastmaster and
gave much life to the affair by hla witty
remarks. About fifty of the members were
present and general enthusiasm was shown
for upbuilding of the club's Interests and
the advertising ot Omaha.
Mayor i. C. Dahlman was the first to
respond, and in part said: "This club, as I
understand it. Is organized for the advance
ment of good roads, the promotion of things
for the interest of automobillsts. It is
Interested in anything which is for the up
building of the city or the state, and for
anything which ' promotes the prevailing
conditions to Improvement It wishes to
see fair play and adequate laws made
which shall regulate automoblllng for the
benefit ot all concerned. I now stand and
have always stood for anything which la
to the betterment of Nebraska or Omaha
and which improves the conditions, so that
anything that I may be able to do to assist
the club, you may depend upon me to do."
Better Auto llegalntion.
The president of the ciub, Ole Hlbner, in
his talk outlined the purposes of the orga
nization and in brief stated: "The purpose
of the club Is to co-operate with state of
ficials, the city officials, the National Auto
mobile sssodlatlon, the owners of cars and
the drivers In the establishing of conditions
and framing of regulations which will be
for tho advancement of automobillsts."
Other toasts were responded to in which
the wonderful growth of the automobile
business was shown. Ten years ago there
were but five cars In Omaha and only one
agency maintained, while today there are
hundreds of machines, dozens of agencies.
The speeding question was In numerous
cases made the feature of talks. In speak
ing of establishing a race track, the oonr
fining of speeding to that alone waa agitated
as necessary to the Interests of the people
at large as well aa the automobillsts.
The Motor club is barely a month old,
but already has 100 members, with applica
tions being filed daily. It Is a separata or
ganization from the Automobile club, and
though now composed mostly ot automobile
dealers, it will probably be opened to own
ers who may wish to enter. Two tours
have already been planned, one on August
24. 25 and 26, which passed through Red
Oak, Shenandoah, Hamburg and Nebraska
City the first day out; Lincoln, Crete, Hast
ings and Kearney the second day out, and
Grand Island, Central City, Columbus Fre

"It was due partly to gross dlsiedlpnre

John Macdonald Henderson, member of
the House of Commons, declared that he

situation ff affairs which Director Cloutte
characterised as "one of the greatest com

was taken for the purpose ot reorganization
and denial was made that the cotnpany
was In any serious financial embarrass
ment. C. S. Plllsbury, A. C. Llrlng and A.
C. Cobb were named receivers. A scheme
of reorganization was adopted In 1909 and
has since been carried out, under which
the unsecured creditors amounting to about
16,200,000 have been settled with. Under this
scheme the mills, trademarks and good win
have been leased to a'n operating company
formed In the United States with a capital
of $2,000,000.
