Hoaband of the Pretty
K. W. Westergard Is married. It's a
romance. Hers It Is:
j Jessie Flanagan was a pretty little girl
of nineteen or . twenty summers. It
doesn't really matter how many. The Im
portant facts axe that she was pretty and
little. She lived in Little Sioux, la. She
is the heroine of this romance and the
fact that she lived In Little Sioux proves
it. Somebody had to live In Little Sioux
and when Jessie found out she was there
she stayed. Nobody can deny that this
One day Jessie came Into possession of
an Omaha city lot. Just how this hap
pened Isn't known, but it's Immaterial,
anyhow. Jessie had to go to Omaha to
see about the title to the lot. It hap
pened to be a busy day In Omaha and
everybody snapped out answers to her
questions and she wasn't a bit happy.
But when she got to the county court
office she met Bill. Bill smiled. He al
ways does that, but this was the big
gest smile anyone ever saw on Bill's
' From then on Jessie had no trouble.
I ttook her all day to find out all the
big things she wanted to know about the
lot, but she didn't seem to mind. You
see, Bill was helping . her look up the
records all over the building and every
time she found out a little more about
the lot she found out a little more about
Bill. The more she found out about Bill
the less she cared whether she found
out anything more about the lot
"Jessie went home. She wrote to Bill
and he wrote to her. The letters got to
flying back pretty rapidly. ' By and by
trains weren't swift enough and the
long distance telephone was used between
letters. It took Just three months for
the situation to develop this far.
Oh, well. Bill went on his vacation
Wednesday morning. This morning his
brother, Dan, received word from him
that ha had married Jessie in Kansas
City, Mo. It seems she had been visiting
friends in St. Joseph and had dropped
over to Kansas City to meet him and
have the operation performed. They'll be

INSURANCE COMPANY PAYS
HAAS' POLICIES AND INTEREST
After a ten-year fight against the
Mutual Life Insurance company of New
York to collect on two 15,500 policies
carried by her deceased husband, Mrs.
Ida L. Haas won in district court yester
day morning when the company confessed
judgment for $17,000 and paid the money
to Charles S. Elgutter, Mr. Hass' attor
ney. The $6,000 diffirence between the faces
of the policies and the amount of the
Judgment represents interest that has
accumulated since Mr. Haas' deah.
The suit was fought out twice in the
district court and twice was appealed to
the supreme court. After the recent third
trial in the district court the company
indicated it again would appeal, but it
thought better of this decision and de
cided to pay the Judgment.

the Missouri river at Omaha, President
Mohler of the Union Paelfio says that

will be a short distance to the north of
the present one.
Coming along with construction of the
second bridge by the Union Pacific Is a
proposition to materially enlarge the
passenger train yards at the Union sta
tion. This is likely to be done as soon as
the tenant roads can get together and
agree upon plans. This may be within a
short time, or it may be a year or more.
Representatives of all the Interested roads
agree that more room is needed for the
passenger trains using the Union sta
tion, but they are not ready to take
