many husbands are
- charged to his nurse-bride of six
weeks in a petition filed in Fuller'
ton by rrank Gerhold, Nance coun
ty farmer, asking annulment of his

The matrimonial ventures" of Mrs,
Margaret Hayes Gerhold, the bride,
were fast and furious, according to
the charges made in her last hus
band s petition.
The Kirl. who told Countv Altor
cy Otto Walters of Columbus, she
had seen exciting service as a nurse
overseas during the war, has disap
' peared.

Her first husband was a man
named Hayes, who died several
years ago. - :
Then she wed Raymond L. Morse
m Bethany, Mo., August 15, 1918,
and applied for divorce in Cass
county, Nebraska, May . 31, 1919.
without first establishing her legal
residence in this state, according to
Her decree was granted, however,
November '5, 1919, and before the
required six months had elapsed,
she became the bride of Robert
Shrader, January 24.1920.
Married in Glenwood, la.
This marriage v?ss solemnized in
Glenwood, la., Gerhold charges, in
order to circumvent the Nebraska
law. The couple then returned'to
Cass county to live, the petition

marriage record was unknown to
him until after his own ceremony
had been performed.
County Attorney Walters, with
whom Mrs.- Hayes-Gerhold con
versed Tiere three weeks ago, de
clares the girl told him she did not
understand the irregularities charged
against her by hr present husband
and believes the girl's entangle
ments in the divorce courts were
unintentional. .
Gerhold has no idea where his
wfe is at the present time.

Letters On Crop Conditions
In Nebraska Issued by-
Crop Estimator.
Lincoln, Neb., Oct.. 25. The first
of a series of weekly letters on crop
conditions in Nebraska was issued
today by A. E. Anderson, agricul
tural statistician for the United
States bureau of crop estimates.
The letter follows: "The harvest
ing of coyi, potatoes and sugar beets
is taking most of the farmers' time at
present. The demand for corn husk
ers is good. s
"The bulk of the corn crop is
ready to husk. A heavy freeze at
this time would make it easier to
sever the ear from the stalk Much
of the corn is down due to heavy
winds in September. The yields are
good, many being very high.
Wniter Wheat Improves.
"Winter wheat has made improve
ment since the recent rains. There
are several reports of Hesssian fly
"The harvest of the commercial
crop of potatoes continues, but few
are being marketed. Offerings as
low as 50 cents per hushel have been
made. The federal marketing agent
at Alliance states that the sales of
potatoes are not suffioiently numer
ous to establish a market.
"The commercial apple v crop
seems to be smaller than expected.
The same is true with the farm apple
crop. Some university officials are
making similar reports of the apple
crop, s
"block hogs are in great demand.
Present prices of corn and hogs jus
tify heavy feeding of swine. ,
Corn Huskers Needed.
"The present demand for corn
huskers is greater than the supply.
The Department of Labor has calls
for corn huskers from all parts of
the state. Wages rang from 6 to 7
cents per bushel, the latter being of
fered when the farmer has no eleva
tor for unloading. i
"The harvest of sugar beets con.
