Marfisi is a veteran in the pro
motion and handling of wrestling
matches, boxing bouts and other ath
letic events and generally knows
whereot nes peaks.
'The advance sale up-to-date has
been nothing short of wonderful," de
clared Marfisi, "I really am surprised,
it has been far larger than I expected."
The advance sale up to last night
had surpassed $2,500. Seats have been
on sale since last Friday, which means
the advance sale so far has averaged
more than $600 a day.
"Advance sales seldom warm up
tmtil the last two days," declared Mar
fisi, "I am confident the advance sale
Thursday and Friday will be as large
as on all the rest of the other days
Charlie Peters has moved to Omaha
from Papillion until the day of the
match and is making his headquarters
at the Hotel Loyal. Peters is training
morning, noon and night and made
the shift from his home to the Loyal

day to and from Papillion.

called otf. The younger Pesek hurt
a foot and will be unable to apepar.
John Pesek, the lad who stood Earl
Caddock off, however, will appear.

The Pneumonia Season.
The cold, damp weather of March
seems to be the most favorable for
the pneumonia germ. Now is the time
to be careful. Pneumonia often re
sults from a cold. The quicker a
cold is gotten rid of the less the dan
ger. As soon as the first indication
of a cold appears take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. As to the value of
this preparation, ask anyone who has
used it Advertisement

MAKING NEW CITIZENS
Stirring war times continue at the
court house, where the office of the
clerk of the district court is experi
encing an unprecedented fush on the
part of aliens for legal citizenship un
der Uncle Sam.
Especially is this true of the sub
jects of the central powers who would
be regarded in the eyes of the law as
enemies in case of war with the lands
of their birth. A patriotic incident
of the morning's stampede for citi
zenships which illustrates the "one
country, one flag" spirit of America
was when an American-Knglishman
and an American-Scotchman vouched
for a German.
The law requires that two citizens
of the United States vouch for an
alien desiring to become naturalized.
George Parker, of Knglish birth, and
Bob Smith, of Scotch ancestry, were
sponsors for Albert Frederick Kra
mer, who says that he'd rather carry
a musket under the star spangled
banner than dig trenches for the kaiser.
Kramer lives at 5116 North Twenty-second
street and came to this
country in 1887.
Among the Germans who made ap
plication for their second papers
were John Frank, Frederick Mahn
ert, Albert Frederick Krause, F.rnest
Richard Emil Simon, Frank Wilhelm
Rouca, August Julius Ratlznwett,
Frank Smith and Charles G. Waiul-sat.
