Official announcement of changes to be
made when the United Btatrs circuit
court clerk's office Is abolished on Jan
uary 1, Is expected within the next few
weeks. Tentative erranitmenis have al
ready been made to retain the force of
deputies now employed In the office of
Circuit Clerk George It. Thummel. He
Is the only official who will lose his
Job when the circuit and district offices
are merged. Mr. Thummel has not yet
made up his mind as to what he will do
after the first of the year.
Though the circuit clerk's office will
be abolished, the volume of "Tederal
court business will not be decreased. The
result win be that District Clerk K. C
Hoyt, upon whom will devolve the hand
mis 01 nil business formerly coursing
lliroui.il the channels of the circuit clerk'
office, will be compelled to more than
double his office force.

It has been concluded that the best

that the entire circuit force will be en
Raged. This force consists of Chief Dtp
uty Clerk John Nicholson, Deputy Clerk
Susan S. Hlllls and AssMant Clerk 'Alico
K. Chase. Sir. lloyt's deputy clork is
Florence E. Moore.
when the change Is made all of these
deputies will be merged Into one working
force under the elm ki nip of Mr. Hoyt. It
Is planned to combine all the offices
which are now located in two different
parts of the federal building, Into one
suite. Toward that end the rooms new
occupied by Clerk Hoyt will be abandoned
and he will move Into the offices now
occupied by Mr. Thummel. Two addi

Gold Medal for Lad
Who Saves the Lives
of His Playmates
Carroll Mullen, age II. of 1W0 Flnkney
street is undoubtedly tho youngest cltisen
of Omaha wearing a hero medal. He is
the son of Lr. T. It. Mullen, a member
of the Park board, and the mun who pre
sented the medal Is Colonel P. C Henfey,
member of the Omaha Water board.
Last Monday afternoon young Mullen
was skating -on the lagoun In Kountzo
park with other boys when two little
lads ventured to far toward the center
of the lagoon and broke through the thin
Ice. He carried Joseph Klklns, 8 years
old, to shore and then took the front po
sition In a line of prostrate boys, worked
Ills way out to the other struggling lad
and succeeded In getting him to shore.
Carroll was very loath to consider his
action as anything out of the ordinary.
but Colonel Heafey, In common with
many others, thought such bravery and
quick presence of mind in a boy of 11
years ought to be fittingly recognized, so
he had a gold medal made, with appro
priate Inscription, and presented the uame
to Carroll Thursday evening- at his home.
'Actions like that of Carroll Mullen
ought to be rewarded whenever they oc
cur," said Colonel Heafev. "Ha acted
very modestly about It, laughing It off
as something not worthy of mention, thus
proving himself a real hero. The little
token could not be moro worthily - be
stowed, in my opinion, and possibly it
will inspire oilier boys to act with similar
bravery and promptitude whenever an
