SHOWMAN TO GIVE
PR00J0F HIS AGE
Record in Family Bible Chang
ed; U. S. Investigates Man
Who Plays "East Lynne"
Was Bert G. Welshman born on
July 7, 1885, or on July 7, IS87? This
is the question that Assistant United
States' Attorney Saxton and United
States Commissioner N'eely tried to
decide Wednesday morning.
Welshman was proprietor of a show
that' toured small towns and produced
"East Lynne" and other classics in a
tent, lie was arrested by Deputy
United States Marshal Quinley at
Snyder, Neb., on complaint that he
had failed to register for the selec
Welshman appeared before Com
missioner Neely with Ins mother.
They claimed (hat he was over the
dratt age. Utiestioning by Mr. sax
ton failed to produce any proof.
W elshman said he had taken out in
surance in a company of which he
could not remember the name. He
said he was going to a normal school
at Springfield, S. D., in 1898, at which
time he was 14 years old.
Finally Mr. Saxton secured the in
formation that Welshman s mother
had brought the family Bible with her
to Omaha from Springfield. So
Welshman was sent to the hotel for it.
On the front leaf of the Iflble was
found the entry, "Bertie G. Welsh
man was born July 7, 1885." But the
3 -appeared to have been written
over another numher, previously
erased. And that number, from a
perpendicular stroke still faintly visi
ble, seemed to have been a "7."
Marshal Eberstein. chief of the
bureau of investigation, secured a
magnifying glass and examined the
figure. All agreed that another figure
had been there and that it appeared
to have been, a "7." Welshman and
his . mother bjbth declared they did
not know anything about the apparent
change in the figure.
1 he case was continued for 60 days
to give Welshman a chance to prove
by other reliable documents that he
s not in the draft age. If he was born
July 7, 1887 he was of draft age on
registration day. It Ke was born on
July 7, 1885 he was beyond draft age
on registration day.
Welshman was married in Lincoln.
December 1, 1917. to Catherine Carr.
formerly leading lady, of a stock com
pany that played at the Krug theater
here. Mr. Saxton called up the license
clerk at Lincoln and found that he
had given his age there as 32.
Welshman claims that his arrest
was brought about because of a quar
rel with his partner in the showbusi-
ness, J. bavage.

Balloon Men to Give Dance
At Hotel Rome Friday Night
"Be with our 'Sammies' at Rome
hotel Friday, January 4, 1918. Prizes
to be given to the best dancers." Lit
tle cards bearing the foregoing are
being . distributed throughout the
length and breadth of Omaha.
Members of . Company C, Fourth
balloon squadron, of Fort Omaha, are
"up in the air most of the time," but
next Friday night they will have their
pedal extremities planted firmly on
the ballroom floor at the Rome hotel.
The "boys" will give a dance that
night for the express and implied pur
pose of raising the necessary loose

Boston Man Secures First
License of the New Year
The first 1918 marriage license was
issued to Thomas J. Edwards, who
journeyed all the way'froin Boston,
Mass., to wed Miss Sarah May Harts
horn, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar
b. Hartshorn, of Omaha, at the be
ginning bf the new year. Edwards
made a frantic search of the court
house New, Year's day for an official
who could issue him a marriage li
cense. Clyde Sundblad finally, ap
peared on the scene and appeased his
wants. The license was issued on
January 1, 1918, and , Edwards left
apparently a happy man ;n the con
viction that he had begun the new
Bricklayers Still Are
In Demand for Army
Exemption officials have received
notice to cease inducting registrants
into the quartermaster's, aviation or
signal corps or for the ordnance de
partment, and not to ship any more
men to Camp Johnson, Florida, or
Kellheld, ban Antonio, Tex.
Bricklayers, however, are in ereat
demand. Board officials are instructed
to examinine all the questionnaires
that have been returned and pick out
bricklayers who are available.
An order was issQed in Lincoln by
Judge Stewart of the district court
restraining W. E. Straub, president
of the Farmers' Mutual Insurance
Company of Nebraska, from using
any of the property, money, effects
or enipjoyes of the company in se
curing voting proxies for himself or
other officers of the company.
The order was issued on applica
tion of Thomas C. Woods, a stock
holder, who states that there are 32,-
000 other members of the organiza
tion. Members awoke a few weeks
ago to the fact that there is a clause
in the application blank for insurance
which gives to President Straub the
applicant's vote at the annual meet
ing. A number of the members im
mediately took action. They mailed
out thousands of proxy blanks to
members, asking them to sign over
their proxies to some other person
The annual meeting will be held
the third Wednesday in January. The
restraining order will prevent the
use of the present application blanks,
because they contain the proxy blanks
in favor of Straub. The court set
January 4 for hearing the petition for
a temporary injunction.
N. H. Nelson Writes of Big
Profits in Grape Raising
A letter from N. H. Nelson, secre
tary of the Douglas County Fruit
Growers association, was read before
the last meeting of the Omaha Real
"Knowing there is a great deal of
land in the vicinity of Omaha which
is especially adopted to grape culture,
1 want to call your attention to the
splendid opportunity which the grow
ing of grapes offers at this time,"
writes Mr. Nelson. "The profits for
a period of years which our growers
have been able to realize have aver
aged from $75 to $100 per acre. This
is the net profits after all expenses
have been paid and is based on the
prices which have prevailed up to the
"Big corporations manufacturing
grape juice have been paying from
$58 to $64 per ton. This is an aver
age of 3 cents per pound. A well kept
vineyard will average, according to
the seasons, from three to five tons to
the acre, so that at the prevailing
price it would give an income .of
practically $250 per acre. This would
give you a net profit of nearly $200.
