erection of the monument by calling a
Joint meeting of all the patriotic and sol

meeting, the city was asked to erect a
suitable monument. Upon finding thst It
was unlawful for the city to undnrtake
such an enterprise, under state laws, a
special bill was drafted and passed through
the legislature, and the city was able to
vote J4.300 for the erection of a monument,
which was erected, and stands today a re
minder of a city's patriotism, as well as a
tribute to the soldier.

matter of International controversy Is being
made out of the case of Mrs. C Suede

wife of ene of the prosperous German
farmers of that section.
Last May Mrs. Suedemeyer went to her
old home In Buekaberg, Westphalvn, Ger
many, to visit relatives and to place her
self under the treatment of a specialist
for bums which she had reoelvod on th
fmoe when she was bespattered with grease
from a roast she was cooking some two
months before. Moat of the burns had
healrd. but the more severe ones on her
nuee failed to yield to treatment here, so
the trip to Germany was determined upon
for the purpose of placing herself under
the rare of a specaltst In that country.
Tarly in August Mrs. Suedemeyer bought
a steamer ticket fir Ue return home, hut
when she attempted to board the vessel
she was refused passage, the company's
offlr.'aJs declannn that she would not be
permitted, to land on this side. Although
United States Consul Fee remonstrated the

LINCOLN. Neb., Oct. 23. (Special. )-T wo
boys, day laborers forty years ago In Iowa,
working side by side, met this week In
Lincoln, the one the leader of his party In
Nebraska and the chairman of his state
committee; the other a United States sen
ator and the leader of his party In Iowa.
The one was William Husenetter, success
ful farmer, stock raiser and politician; the
other. Albert B. Cummins, successful law
yer and United States senator.
It was Just forty years ago next spring,
over In Iowa, that William Husenetter
pulled Albert cumtnlnt out of the Turkey
liver and saved him from drowning. The
two men parted shortly after that and met
for the first time last Thursday, and only
upon discussing Iowa of the early days
did each recall the other and that each
was reminded of that act of heroism on
the part of the republican state chairman.
Working In the Woods.
Husenetter lived with his parents near
Mlllvllle. He was at the top of a hill
shoving timber down a wooden chute to
the river and his younger brother, John
Husenetter, now of Alnsworth, was at the
bottom of the chute to see that the chute
did not get choked up. Across the river
was a rope by which the ferry was run.
Owing to the extremely high water this
rope was only a few Inches above the
Up the stream were two boys In a !oat,
Albert Cummins and Richard Flanagan.
They struck the rope broadside and the
boat at once capplsed. Both yelled for help.
John Husenetter Jumped In his boat nd
rushed to the reecue of Flanagan, while
young Cummins struck out for himself,
being a good swimmer. William Husenet
ter. hearing the cries, rushed down the hill
to lend what assistance he could. The ice
was breaking up In the river and the
water was extremely cold.
J"hn Husenetter managed to get his boat
to Flanagan who held on and was towed
lor. The two went to the room of the
chairman and about the only man that
could get Into that room that night was
Jack Minor, who happened to be a cousin
of the Fianagan boy.
Thanks the Board.
