affair from the start, gotten up In opposi
tion to the rrgulnr Wilson-Marshall club
orxunized some tlm arro by Jerry How
ard. Lew Casey, Tom Elisor, Jr., and
Frank Keegan. From carefully prepared
lists the work of the Gillin crowd was
carried on. Joe Walker of the World
Herald and grand, vlxler of the Gillin
forces, nominated Captain Parkhurst for
president of the club. In turn "Joe" was
nominated for secretary. John Fltz Rob

city, was turned ilown cold for a place as
vice president. Iew Casoy. presldont of

South Omaha at the next election, ac
cording to best report.
- Jack Parks, who Is a dyed-in-the-wool
democrat without respect for gang lead
ers, inquired why the club should be
called Wilson Instead of Wilson-Marshall.
He was not on the inside 'and did not
know that the new club was gotten tip
especially to break up the young men'
original Wilson-Marshall club of South
Omaha and strengthen Glllln's claim on

Feesey Carried to Jail.
Max Feeney, an 18-year-old boy, was
literally oarrled to jail last night by Cap
tain Hank Elsfelder and Detective James
Sheahan after he had beaten Clarence
Brlggs at Twenty-fourth and N streets,
knocked down Officer Ed Krueger at
Twenty-fourth and M streets and terrified
the people in the neighborhood of Twenty-fifth
and O streets. .'
Feeney's trouble began in Fisher & Mo
Gill's news store, where, it ia alleged, the
two boys, Brlggs and Feeney, got Into an
argument over the merits of Jack Welsh,
a young man' who was compelled to fight
his way into South Omaha soma weeks
ago. Lew Casey, who happened near the
scene of the fight, separated the com
batant only after Brlggs had been beaten
over th eye. Feeney then proceeded to
Twenty.fourth and M streets, where, it Is
said, he beat Officer Krueger over the
head. He finally made his way to. a
restaurant "at Twenty-fifth and N streets,
where he cried for a knife with which to
carve Jlmmle Sheahan. Detective Shea
han walked into the store and spanked
Max with his open hand, after which Els
felder and Sheahan took the young man
to jail.' , . . ,
New Catch Basin Invented. .. . .
City Engineer Herman Beal ha In
vented a way to circumvent the nuisance
of the noisome catch basins on Rail
road avenue from Washington to Mon
roe streets. For more than a year the
residents in the southwestern section ot
the city have complained of the stench
that has emanated from the different
sewer openings along Railroad avenue.
It was said that a umber of children
had . contracted dlptherla from the
vapors coming out of the sewer in that
Petition after petition for relief was
made to the city council until the South
east Improvement club grew weary of
further 'petitioning and . threatened to
take the matter into t'heir own hands.
At this point Street Commissioner John
Fennell with a force of men closed up all
the objectionable openings In the sewer
on Railroad avenue until some per
manent relief could be effected. .
City Engineer Herman Beal after try
ing several patented sanitary catch
basins was finally compelled to become
an inventor and make a catch basin
suitable for the needs of the sewer In
question. The sanitary catch basin I
murti larger than any used heretofore.
It allows of a sanitary deodorisation of
the atmosphere surrounding the lewer
vents as well as a means for carrying
away the storm water. The basins are
being Installed as rapidly as the engineer
can get them In.

- "I slept him, .cooked him and eat him
for three months, Judge, , and he never
paid me a cent" said Andy Dupont in
the court of Justice George Collins yes

Mr. Dupont who is not immediately re

bought some back, replied "ll'l Arthur.

The wealth of the nation is
in the soil of the farm
Among the people who are best off today are
the tillers of the fertile soils of the rich farms of this country. Thou
sands of men are leaving the cities nfter years of life there and joining
the back-to-the-farm movement. There is more wealth to be found under
the farm soil than in the city.
Nebraska is one of the richest agricultural states
in the Union. It overflows with the good things of the fanners, and this
grand state today has many of the wealthiest farmers in the world.
Nebraska soil is productive of some of the best
crops in the world. The rich ground, properly cultivated, yields crops
that make the fanners independent within a few years.
There is still lots of room in Nebraska for more
farmers. Parts of the state are undeveloped.
In order to tell the world of the farm opportu
nities here this paper is now making ready the '
Nebraska Development Number
The Omaha Bee
This beautiful magazine must .be distributed
widely in order to tell other parts of the world .of the conditions here in
' this state of the myriads of advantages that await the man who wants
to get back to the soil and become independent. ' '
Nearly every line of industry and activity de
pends upon the success of the farm. It is of interest, therefore, to other
people in other lines to make Nebraska grow as a farm state;
These little magazines, handsomely bound,
beautifully illustrated, and full of information about Nebraska's farm
ing and about the whole state in every line of activity, will tell the
world how great a state we have and we have a great state, much better
than you know. ' ' , !'".,;,''
