Frank will take place Sunday, Jan
uary 28. The Brandciscs are at the
Fontenelle, where they will receive
their Omaha friends Sunday after
noon and evening, leaving Monday or
i uesday tor the west.
Both Mrs. Brandeis ami Miss Bran
deis were delighted with the fine new
hotel whose erection was largely nrO'
moted by the Brandeis interests, and
with the many improvements in the
business district in the few years of
tneir absence in New York.
"We are pleased to be here again
with our friends, although this first
visit since my husband s death is han
for me to bear," said Mrs. Brandeis,
Greeted by Old Employes.
Mrs. Brandeis tried hard to control
her emotions as they entered the
store and were greeted by old em
ployes, but broke down completely
when greeted by Ueorge Brandeis,
She retired to the private offices until
her composure was regained.
Walking from the hotel to the
Brandeis stores, Mrs. Brandeis noticed
a burly driver lashing his team of
horses up the slippery Douglas street
hill. The wagon was piled high with
bricks and the horses were unable to
Mrs. Brandeis, stopped. "How do
you expect those poor horses to pull
that load. You haven't them snow
shod ! she -protested.
"Aw, whaddayu know about it,'
came from the drink-laden driver
along with a stream of mild invective,
to say the least.
Regretting her inability to make
her protest effectual, Mrs. Brandeis
continued on her way, undisturbed by
the How ot language directed at her.

Bottlers Convene Here
For Annual Discussion
The men who are bottlers of drinks,
particularly soda pop bottlers, are to
hold their annual convention in
Omaha. January 24 and 25. This is
the convention of the Nebraska Bot-
ters' association. W. W. Tatum of
Lincoln is president and Frank I
Ringer of Lincoln is secretary. Some
important matters were taken up last
year, especially with reference to the
negligence shown by some dealers
in returning cases ot empty bottles,
An effort was then made to come to
some agreement whereby an extra
charge could be made for the cases
and bottles, this money to be re
funded when the cases and bottles
were returned. The convention was
well attended last year and a large
attendance is expected this year.

if she sustained any injuries when
she walked into the restaurant at
1408 Farnam street on the morning

One Wallop and a
Kick Ends Bliss
Of Wedded Life
Never since they were married
thirty-three years ago have Mr. and
Mrs. Carl Philbcrt, 1703 South Eigh
teenth street, been separated for more
than a week at a time. Now, how-
even, a condition exists- which will
keep them apart for thirty days. Mr.
Philbert is in jail.
For the greater "part of the thirty-
three years of their married life the
Philberts have been happy, but for
the last week, according to the aged
wife's testimony in police court, her
husband s conduct toward her has
been such that she found his arrest
her only relief.
Last Thursday night he blackened
her eye, she avers, and a week later
he kicked and beat her again. Then,
she said, she decided to swear out

She was relieved when the judge

Say Dairyman Exceeds Limit
In the Number of His Cows
Counsel for Peter Peterson, dairy
man at 3306 Vinton street, is arguing
class legislation in the appeal case
being heard before Judge Sears to
determine whether Peterson has a
right to keen more than one cow in
the close built-up portion of the city.
There is a city ordinance, passed in
1914, which says in which oortions
of the city dairies may be conducted.
The Vinton street place is not in one
of these. City Prosecutor McGuire as
Peterson, whom the citv dairv in
spector declares has repeatedly been
notified that he is violating a city
ordinance at his present location, was
arrested and fined in police court.
He appealed the case to the district
court. Mr. McGuire told the court
that Peterson has kept as many as
fifty cows, whereas one should be the

a husband supposed to minister np
the spiritual needs ot otners, out wno,
according to the wife's testimony
failed to properly minister to the
wants ot his own family larder.
A unique phase of Judge Day's de
cision when he gave the former east
em woman her freedom from the
western "skv-oilot, whom she mar
rird less than a year ago after a whirl
wind courtship, was that in case a
oreacher is unable to support his lam
ilv. when he could swell his income
by other lines of work but refuses to
do so, the wife should have a divorce.
"A preacher as well as any other
man should look alter his family
first and society afterward," Judge
Dav remarked. I he welfare ot
preacher's family should be his first
thought that of society is second
The preacher's wife, who is in the
forties, testified that she met the Rev.
Harold K. P. Lorrtish while she was
tisiting in Omaha. She had lately
come from the exclusive colony in the
New Jersey town.
The Omaha preacher, who could
twang the lyre of melody and inspire
with flowery oratorical readings, ap
pealed to the eastern woman, she
told the court. She said she believed
him to be a first-class preacher of
the gospel, siilhciently able to keep
the family exchequer at high tide, as
well as to pilot the members wf his
congregation through the tangled for
ests of modern-day temptations.
The sixty-mile an hour courtship
of only a month's duration resulted in
the sounding of the wedding tocsin
at Lincoln on February 2, 1916. And
then well, Mrs. Cornish related that
her preacher-man didn't seem to have
been properly tutored in the art of
getting the com. she declared that
he was smart yea, brilliant and was
a bear along musical and dramatic
lines, but somehow or other didn't
"bring home the bacon."
Asked Her for Money,
It was not long, Mrs. Cornish told
Judge Day, before the Rev. Harold
K. i'. began asking her for money.
"I realized that sometimes a profes
sional man has a hard time getting
started, so T advanced him sums of
money at different times. Once he
fairly begged me for money to buy
an automobile said he need it in
his business. I gave him what he
asked for. Altogether I gave him
about $3,500 in six months."
The judge remarked at this junc
ture that if someone kept drawing
on him at that rate they would break
him in less than that time.
