"After much reflection t nave deter

which Judra Rodlck wrote.
Loss of a band shall be remunerated at
the rate of one-half of the employe's

Because Mine- Orottmaa refused to ac

titled to recover doctor's bills. An alle

negligent In caring for tha Injury was
held by tha court aa not affecting her
right to recover.
Bride Says Her
- a Loaf of Bread
Mrs. Veda Besanson, a bride, charges
In a dlvoroa petition filed In district court
that Burton Betansen, whom aha married
October t at Fremont, hit her on the
head four daya later with the first loaf
ef bread which she made. This waa aa
act of extreme cruelty, she alleges.
Her husband hurled tha loaf with force,
airs. Besanson complains, and when it
struck her head the contact caused her
to feel pain.
The loaf of bread la not described In
Mrs. Be za neon' a petition, but according
tc attorneys Its weight must be deter
mined to enable a Judge to decide how
much of cruelty there waa In thla act ef
tha husband. If It waa light, delightfully
fluffy and possessed of a orlsp. tender
crust, such aa tha usual bride bakes, any
Injury caused by It undoubtedly would
be mental rather than physical. On the
ether hand, a loaf ef bread aa It U some
times made may be a dangerous weapon,
Mrs. Besanson alleges that aha baa been
a dutiful and obedient wife.

Jardine Figures '
On Better Lights
for tho Corners
The city commissioners are beginning
to consider with some seriousness the
proposition of a better electrlo light street
lighting system for Omaha proper.
. Tha Omaha Electric Light and Power
company has submitted to Commissioner
Jardine a tentative statement, showing
that It would be possible to substitute
IM7 lamps of type C, 400 candle power,
for tha same expense now being paid for
l.JTl area and 13 naming arcs.
The proposed change would result In
lighting PM more Intersection. Of 1,960
Intersections ef the city, l.Jlf are lighted.
The commissioners - have been Im
portuned all year by cttlsens who ask for
more lights. Tha city haa been running
along for a year without a atreet light
ing contract with the electrlo light com
pany. The proposed new form of electrlo lamp
for Omaha streets waa adopted In South
Omaha and costs 13 each per year.
