Weight or Measure
Is Choice Offered.
To Crude Oil Users
Users of oil-iurning furnaces . are
being reminded just , now tint under
city ordinance No. 9142, passed on
February 8 of this year,, they may
demand during the coming season
that oil deliveries be made on the
basis of weight rather than by liquid
measurement, ...
The ordinance contains the follow
ing optional clause: .
"Provided, that the , provisions of
"this ordinance shall not apply to any
sale or contract of sale- in which
the parties thereto have ' expressly
agreed upon in writing, to the con
trary, signed by the. parties thereto."
City Attorney Rine,, who drew the
ordinance, made tliis .. statement:
"While the ordinance gives the option
of allowing the oil consumers to con
tract for deliveries under the" liquid
measurement system, it, however,
does protect consumers who may de
mand that ;oil shall be delivered by
weight, as defined in the ordinance."
The liquid measurement clause was
placed in the ordinance to satisfy

council-'committee- of the whole at
the time the ; ordinance was dis
cussed, ;
The city legal department main
tains that the optional- clause in no
manner vitiates the ordinance in the
event that any consumer or con
sumers demand the weight measure
ment. "I . .'.-:'
, The ordinance was introduced by
Mayor Dahlman, and upon the re
quest of C. J. McDonald, secretary
and manager. of the'Nebraska Oil and
Furnace company, , Mr. McDonald
said: "We contended and still con
tend that the 'weight measurement
offers the better protection to con
sumers, as under this system the con
sumer is giyen weight tickets,, while
under the liquid measurement system
there are several undesirable features
I c,0 nt see that theoptional feature
of the, ordinance does much harm.

Svdnev Robison, 34 years old. a

spirit broken, Mr. Robison appealed
to Assistant county Attorney Kay j.
Abbott for relief from the bonds of
matrimony, after thres days of mar
ried life. , , . - .
, This Is the Life Maybe..
After perusing rhatrimona! papers
for weeks he finally selected Miss
Ada Stephens of Omaha as the lady
most desirable to preside over his
farm home. He came to Omaha Sun
day, went to the home of Miss
Stephens' siste, near Benson, met
the young lady, her sister and brother-in-law,
remained at the home all
day Sunday, and before leaving pro
posed to Miss Stephens.
His. investigations regarding the
character, physical well-being and
associations revealed no stumbling
blocks and he consented to become
the step-father of the 15-months old
child of Miss Stephens, who she de
clared was born of her first marriage.
Robison went to the court house
bright and early Monday morning and
was granted a license to wed by
Deputy Clerk H. H. Stubbendorf. The
couple were married by Justice C. W.
Britt, the sister of the bride. Miss
Jessie Larson, acting as witness.
Prepare for Honeymoon.
Plans were immediately made for
the packing of the household furniture
and effects for removal to the farm
in Kansas. Robison's father was noti
fied to prepare for the home-coming
of the son and his bride. '
Wednesday morning, when Robison
returned to the sister's home to ac
company his wife to the railway
station, he found her suffering from
an epileptic fit, he stated.
Robison now declares that he had
no knowledge that his wife was sub
ject to these attacks. He asks that
the marriage be annulled on the
ground of fraud and deception. V
His ihrillinor week in Omaha has
matte him a convert of celibacy. He's
going back to the farm. - .
The Bee's Fund for
Free Milk and Ice
J. H. McDonald, retired merchant
tailor, who was confined to his bed
for a few weeks during the hottest
weather, living mostly on a milk diet,
made a vow that if he got well enough
to write a check the first thing he
would do would be to send $10 to The
Bee's Milk and Ice Fund.
So, as soon as he was able to get
to his office, he mailed the check with
the, wish that it might help some of
the poor children.
A bit of sickness or privation does,
indeed, make one realise the hot
weather sufferings of helpless little
ones those whom The Bee's fund
cares for.
