THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, JUNE 15. 1918. SOUTH SIDE BETTERMENTS AT STOCK YARDS TO COST $1,000,000 Hundred Additional Cattle Pens to Be Built; Traders' Quar ters to Be Rearranged on South Side. In accordance with an order issued by the Union Stock Yards company, the : readjustment of yardage facili ties, involving the exchange of places of the traders' division, long located at the east end of the yards, and the commission men, located at the west end, will be completed Saturday. The firms will be ready for business in their jiew locations Monday morning. 4'The change is intended primarily for the benefit of the shipper, and not for any special advantage to either t 're "traders or the commission men," said Manager Everett Buckingham. "Under the old arrangement the shipper was at a disadvantage in hav ing to move the cattle from the un loading pens at the east end of the yards clear through the length of the yards in order to get them to the commission pens where they are sold. This situation will now be eliminated bv allowine the commission men the use of the yards nearest to the un loading pens. Naturally they traders do not favor the idea of giving up the pens they have used for so long, but the change will benefit tit trade generally by helping the shipper out." i Twenty commission firms and 100 traders will be affected by the change. ,? The construction of 100 additional cattle pens at the west end of the yards, all with concrete floors and overhead walks, will begin within a few days. Overhead walks will also be '.built to extend over the entire 'Western' end, of the yards, for the benefit of prospective feeder buyers. Altogether the improvements at the .Stock yards, including new pens, -Chutes, scales, etc., will involve the expenditure of approximately $1,000, 000, according to Traffic Manager ,Carl Smith. The stock pens cover 160 acres, with 40 acres more used for other purposes. GIRL PURSUED BY ; WILD COW SAVES : LIFE BY FLIGHT i Little Helen Brix, 2803 Madison street, narrowly escaped injury when a wild cow, which had escaped from the 'pens of the Goldberg Bros.' In dependent Packing company, gave thase as she was returning from a $ tore in the vicinity of Twenty-eighth and Madison streets fnday atternoon As thei nfuriated animal charged, Helen ran and leaped across a ditch 'several feet wide. The animal then charged through a fence and chased wpman who was in a yard at Twenty-eighth and Madison streets, into .the house. j When Officers Baughman and Fer ris arrived on the scene the residents fii the neighborhood had sought ref uge, in a yard surrounded py a high board fence, and the cow apparently .was waiting for them to venture out. A bullet from a policeman's gun ended the brute's depredations. Another cow which had escaped was roped and re turned to the corral. CLOSE CALLFOR TWO WHEN AUTO ; GOES DOWN BANK .

Trial of the divorce suit. of There sia Stoecker, alleged common-law wife, against William Stoecker, a rich Omaha business man and former politician, ended late Friday after noon after an all-day session de voted to arguments of the contending lawyers before Judge Troup. I I o judge took the case under advisement and will render his decision in a few days as to whether the little Bo hemian woman is entitled to the di vorce and $1011,000, for which she is suing. Few facts brought out by law yers tor eitner tire piainun or de fendant in Friday's session hut were included in testimony offered during the early stages of the trial. One side contended that Theresia Stoecker should be given the rights of a wife and the defendant contended that .she in no way was entitled to mi.U rights. Upholds Woman's Reputation. Attorney McKenzie, representing the plaintiff, during his arguments in the morning, strongly upheld the character of the girl, at which, he con tended, the defense was aiming. lie branded as false the statements that Theresia had come to Omaha for any other purpose than to seek legitimate employment. Attorney Sidney Smith then took up the arguments, for the defense. He characterized the case as "one not lor divorce, but for the purpose of extracting money." He contended that Theresia knew of her guilt in her transactions with Stoecker and that she knew she was not married to the defendant. Attorney Gaines, for the defense, contended that the plaintiff had pre sented two alleged facts on which to base her claim. They were, he said, her testimony as to the verbal marriage contract and that the couple had lived together. "We are dealing with an ambitious girl," he said. Sutton Assails Stoecker. Attorney Sutton in his arguments later for the plaintiff, held her up as "a little flower who had been crushed by Stoecker." He made the declara tion that it was Stocker's intention the first time he ever saw the little Bohemian girl "to crush and destroy, by frightfulness and German kultu'r. this little girl." He made frequent mention of the word "kulttir," as ap plied to Stoecker. "If I believed that Stoecker took this girl out to balls and dances in this city, thinking that she was a prosti tute, as the defense has contended, I would say that he ought to be ridden out of town on a rail," he fairly shouted during a heated moment in his argument. "I do not think, how ever, that Stoecker believed that of this girl," he added, "hut I do believe that he thought she was the good girl that she is."
