Miss Bessie Harris, pretty Kngllsh
girl, born In London twenty years ago,
will ba married to Frank Blau. 11. a
OermanAmerlcan, Sunday, aa tha re
sult of a romance which proved Cupid
more powerful than Mara, tha war god.
Blau already has secured a marriage
license at the court house, making cer
tain that no further delay will occur
In the celebration of tha nuptials. Once
tha marriage waa postponed because tha
young man and girl thought they loved
their countries better than each other
and a second time It waa delayed be
oause of an Injury to the brldogroom's
Toung Blau had been "going" with
pretty Bessie Harris for six montha when
the European war broke out. Although
Blau waa born in the United States, his
parents were natives of Germany and
he called himself a "Qerman-Amerlcan."
They disagreed and ceased to "keep com
pany." Nina months ago tha present bride and
bridegroom began to appear together in
publto places and young Blau frequently
visited tha homo of Joseph Harris, her
father, of the South Side. They found
they no longer cared whether Germany
or England wan victorious, so long as
they could ba together.
"We ara American," at last they said.
"There is no reason why we should
quarrel with each other about England
and Germany."
Now they never talk about war. Blau
calls himself an American and so does
his pretty bride.
After the marriage the bride and bride
groom will go to the home of Joseph
Blau, 1612 Burt street, where they will

Says E, Stenger

with l.'nlon Pacific officials. Mr. Stony
ger asserts that all through southern
Nebraska and Kansas conditions at this
time of the year were never better than
now for a big crop of winter wheat. Said
Mr. Stenger:
"The winter wheat acreage la about
up to that of last year and on account
of the great quantity of precipitation In
the early fall after sowing was com
pleted, the grain got a good start, going
Into the winter in the best possible con
dition. While there has been little snow
to form a blanket over the wheat, there
has been enough to keep the ground
moist and prevent the dirt from blowing
lng away from the roots of the plant.
"Southern Nebraska and Kansas
farmers, on account of big crops and get
ting high prices for everything they tney
have had to sell, are in good shape finan
"All through our territory farm lands
are constantly advancing In price, and
while there are not many farms sold, or
for sale, those that change hands do so
at a good advance from a year ago. The
land la so good and so productive that
farmers are not anxious to sell."

An enormous Increase In tha amount
bf macaroni and kindred products eaten
In this country Is noted In recent years.
This Is said to be largely due to the clean

largest of which is located In Omaha.
Durum wheat from which It is made
grows to its greatest perfection here In
tha middle west, even better than In Its
native Russia from which country the
seed was Imported.
Only the outer shell Is removed from the
wheat. The rest Is ground Into a coarse
flour, mixed with water and kneaded
In big machines Into a dough which is
then pressed by hydraulic presses Into
tha various shapes and Is finally put
through a curing process In humidors.
The American-made product Is made In
Strictly sanitary manner, in maraea
contrast from the hand-made foreign
product, ita richness in nutrition has
caused It to take tha place largely of

"Welcome news to the people of

"Free telephone and automobile
service and free street car tickets."
"Iowa Is dry, but you should worry.
There's an abundant supply lust
across the river."
"Visit your favorite old liquor es
tablishment in its new home."
"Now, remember, you were not as
bad off as you thought you were."
The foregoing and similar statements
printed on large circulars, distributed by
a Douglas straat liquor dealer in Council
Bluffs, aroused tha ire of the Omaha
city council when Commissioner Kugel
presented a oopy of tba advertisement at
a meeting.
To Reconsider Llceaae.
The eouneil resolved to reconsider issu
ing tha license for 1916, and there is a pos
sibility that tha license may not be
granted at all. .
Tha offending dealer recently opened a
place at Eleventh and Douglas streets,
and last week was brought before tha
commissioners because of objectionable
signs at his liquor emporium. Ha agreed
to remove the signs, and now ha has
sought to attract business In Council
Bluffs by advertising the fact that when
tha town across the river goes dry next
week he will supply a-plenty, furnish
street car tickets or deliver by automo
bile without extra cost.
Tha Omaha commissioners object to this
city being advertised in Council Bluffs
In tha manner Indicated.
Whether the license will actually ba
turned down will be determined Friday
