In partial payment of the Judgment
Judge Fears ordered title to two houses
and lota owned by tho defendants to he
turned over to Mrs. Brown, He held
that the property was purchased with
money secured from Mrs. Gruber.
Mrs. Gruber alleged that she had paid
(.1,000 to Mr. and Mrs. Brown for the
promotion of a patent medicine called
by Brown the "antiseptic wonder." .
In Denver Mrs. Gruber lias a suit
pending in which she is seeking to re
cover the remainder of hor fortune, lost
by her In an investment.
County Attorney Maguey is investigat
ing the evidence brought to light in
Judge Bears' court.
A janitor who works on the first
floor of the postofflce building has
had to rive up the unequal struggle
to make ends meet, following the
cutting off of eight days' pay by the
government this year and the chang
ing of pay day, so that now the
meager and curtailed wages are not
paid for nny month until the 1 Mh of
the following month.
He had to go to the "loan sharks." He
borrowed $.0 from the Oman Loan com-
j pany. which he agreed to pay hack In
ten monthly installments of 17.70 each,
thus disposing of the principal of $.V and
interest of $27.
This man asked not to have his name
nv-Ptioned, tor t teel the s'luim. He
lives, with his wife and four children in
Ihe neighborhood of Creighton university.

"Tills camo Just when our students left
us." he said. "We keep roomers to help
out the $f,5 a month thst I earn. Just
when our roomers left this notice tame
that we would lose eight days' pay. Well,
the coal bill wasn't paid from last winter,
and the gas and water bills came in, and
I said to my wife, 'What shall we do'.''
. We couldn't do anything, and so we had
; to borrow tho money and pay out all that
I interest. It will take Just half a month's
I salary to pay the interest alone."

Tad Is a tailole that was placed In
the finuarium In tho rotunda of Tho Bee
building by State Fish Commissioner
O'Brien somo time ago along with half
a hundred goldfish.
At thut time Tad looked just like a
fish. Of course, he didn't have any bright
colors to brag about, but the ttrlnt'm'i utl",

"Melliticla" would say, he soon lieca.nio
"one of the most popular members of tho
ai'iarium younger set."
Old Man Uoldfish found Tad un ngreu

together. The old gentlefisli told Tad
of his am eetors In Japan, for he wan
very proud of his family.
