WIFE HORLS KNIFE
AT HIM; HE SUES

Blade at Husband, He Says
Almost Punctured Him.
Are You Prepared For Cleanup Day?
DIVORCE BUSINESS. BOOMS
Divorce courts took on a busy as
pect again after an unusually light
docket the first two days of the week.
Five petitions were filed and two
Ella R. Camplin, suing George II.
Camplin on grounds of alleged cru
elty, asserts that she and her husband
have been living apart by agreement
for more than a year. She states in
her petition that he has made threats
against her life and asks the court
for a restraining order to keep him
from molesting her.
John R. Peterson objects to being
a human target for his wife to throw
knives at, so he alleges, and asks, the
court to free him at once. He alleges
that he was sitting in a chair in their
kitchen at home on March 15, 1916,
when she hurled a keen-bladed butch-'
erknife at him. Peterson says th'at
the kitchen bowie stuck in the back
of the chair uncomfortably close to
vital parts of his anatomy.
One Wins Alimony.
Other petitions were filed as fol
lows: William A. Pierce against Nina S.
Pierce, cruelty alleged.
Cora Little against William T. Lit
tle, misconduct alleged. x
Sixteen hundred dollars alimony
was awarded Margaret Fry by Judge
Day, who granted her a decree from
Charles L. Fry. She alleged cruelty.
Gladys Schluter filed a divorce peti
tion Tuesday and "got action" within
twenty-four hours. Judge Day freed
her from Raymond E. Schluter.
George Derleth was granted a de
cree from Mabel I. Derleth.
Seelye Says 1917
Shatters All Past
Records for Pathe
C. R. Seelye of New York, man
ager of the Pathe Film company's
American interests, is in Omaha in
the interest of his concern. He con
ferred with Local Manager C E.
Holah of the Pathe exchange.
Although a young man, Mr. Seelye
is one of the big figures in the mov
ing-picture industry. Many of the
best efficiency ideas now being used
by the Pathe organization are the re
sults of his skill and experience. In
short, snappy sentences he outlined
his views on the "movies."
"The moving-picture theater of the
future," said Mr. Seelye, "is going to
be a large one, seating from 3,000 to
4.000 persons. This, of course, in the
large cities. Only one-fourth of the
people are regular attendants of the
shows. Newspaper advertising and
lots of it will win over the balance of
the people for the exhibitor. I am a
firm believer in advertising. We
gpend $1,000,000 a year in advertis
ing. "Does it pay? I should say it does.
The early months of 1917 have shat
tered all Pathe sales recordr, and our
employes have received the largest
bonuses in the history of this con
cern." The Pathe company controls many
processes of developing and printing
that are secrets to all excepting
trusted employes. Among these is the
manufacture of motion pictures in
color. It is the only firm that makes
its own films, the other all buying
from a manufacturer.

Not Serve Even
With Red Cross
Three socialists who were asked to
serve as directors of the local Red
Cross chapter, refused to accept, ac
cording to W. G. Ure, treasurer.
Mr. Ure would not divulge the
Military Camp to,
Learn to Shoot
Earl Kiplinger of Omaha, a mem
ber of the officers' reserve corps of
the United States army, advised his
fellow members of the local Rotary
club at noon to establish a prepared
ness camp where they might drill and
become proficient in the use of firearms.
The camp, according to Mr. Kip
linger's suggestion, should be a semi
military institution. Drills, he said,
might be held every Saturday and two
or three nights of the week. The
plan is in accord with the scheme of
the International Rotary club, which
recently declared itself in favor of
Dates for "So Long, Letty"
Fixed for Early in June
Manager Burgess of the Boyd re
ceived a telegram from the Shubert
office in New York this morning,
telling him the Morosco musical com
edy, "So Long. Letty." has been defi
nitely booked for the Boyd. The en
gagement is for four nights, begin
ning on Sunday, June 10. This piece
has been a big success in New York,
Chicago and San Francisco.

County Must Agree
To Pay Expenses
The city is liable for expenses in
curred in the care of indigent sick
unless a county official with proper
"authority contracts for the treatment
of some particular patient, Judge
Redick of the district court ruled in
sustaining demurrer filed by County
St. Joseph's hospital sued the
county for the expenses of a patient
sent to the institution without the
proper authority of county officials.
Judge Redick sustained the demurrer
and dismissed the case.
The dispute between the city and
county as to which was liable for the
care of sick outside of public insti
tutions was a long-standing one.
