A marriage license was issued here
yesterday afternoon to Ernest Chaney

sister. Miss Sprague is the daughter
ol C. A. Sprague and the stepdaugh
ter of Mrs. Sprague, while Mr. Chaney
is the son of Mrs. C. A. sprague and
stepson of Mr. Sprague.
An ingenious crank has figured out
that since the marriage Mr. Chaney
is husband and stepbrother of his
wife, son-in-law of hts father and
brother-in-law of himself. His -wife
can also lay claim to a similar dis
tinction of relationship.

married Wednesday afternoon at 5:30
o'clock at the Christian parsonage,
Rev. I. A. McKenzie performing the
ceremony. They will make their home

Cia'tman E. O MayfiV'ti a:.,i
Henry Gerdes of the State Board of
Control, spent the past two days in
Kearney on a tour ot inspection of the
state institutions here. The plans for
improvement of the state tuberculosis
hospital include purchase of additional
lands adjoining the present grounds
on the east and cm which ia located a
residence property. v
It is the intention to use the latter
as a residence for the hospital super
intendent if the purchase is made. The
construction of a septic tank, near the
power company tail race, is also as
sured. New boilers are also a need in
the heating plant, but as it is impossi
ble to get them at this time the state
will have to transfer two of the old
boilers from Lincoln , and use them
Overhauling the old administration
