THE BEE: OMAHA, "WTCTCKTCSDAY, jrNE Z, 1914. WIFE AND HUBBY IN TIE RACE Hun Bead Heat on Trip from Deca tur. 111., to .Omaha. ARMISTIOE FINALLY DECLARED knits While llolh Jnnrnrr to llor rnrf, Whew, They llrnr, Son I on Trlnl for Speeding the Anto. The score stands 0 to 0 between Mr. and Jlrs. 3. C ScheUer of Decatur, 111., to secure possession of an automobile they both claim. Though lawful husband and wife, each claims that the machine Is riot the property of the other, and thereby hangs a tale. On Saturday the pollco Rot word from Schetler that his son, Clark, aged , and a companion, Will Crlrmlnsham, had left Decatur with Schctler's car, and to ba on the lookout for It, as It was believed en route to Omaha. Sunday the car was spotted, the boys locked up and ScheUer notified, nesults: Schetler, without stopping to chango his collar, hurried to the depot to catch tho flist train coming this way. When he rushed up to the ticket office ho was taken back at finding his wife there ahead of him, purchasing a ticket for Omaha also. The couple had been estranged for some time and naturally said nothing to each other of their reason for coming on here, and rode In different apartments. no Hi Tnkr Tnxlu. When Omaha waa reached Husband Schetler hailed a taxi and said "city Jail,-1 and Wife Schetler hailed the next taxi and said "city Jail," and both drivers were urged simultaneously to "to get there first." Tho race was a dead heat, and both Jumped out of the cars and made for the station garago, where tho car taken from tho youth was stored. Into the front scat climbed Husband fichetler and Into the rear climbed Wlfo Schetler. And then, after bejng firmly ensconced, they turned to each other with a simultaneous ."Well, what'a the Idea?" "This car Is mine, and I'm going to take It back home with me," said the husband. Truer. In Declnrrd, "This car la mine and those boya can Use It If they want to." fired back the wife. And tho seise for possession was on. The II. prepared to start for home despite the W.s protests and the W. out guessed him by getting an Attorney and putting her case up boforc. neutral par ties. Meanwhile the boys wero released and disappeared somewhere about town. "I'll sit In this car until the boya show up nnd take It," said tho W. ''And I'll not move It an Inch until you get out," said the II. And all morning long, rain and all, both sat stiffly prop ped up In the two seats of the machine as It stood In front of the Jail. How long thla would have kept up Is hard to de termine had not word come to both their cars that their son was being tried' out at Florence on a charge of speeding, when both consented to call a truce until they found out how their offspring was faring. The Schetlers are wealthy residents of Decatur. Both admit that married life has not been one sweet dream and both averr they have absolutely no use for each other. They are separated, but riot divorced. Later. Upon arrival at Florence the boys were found and peace between the father and tnothor was continued. A reconciliation was not effected, but after due consid eration Papa Bhetler decided that a little outing would do him good and so he do elded to take an auto trip to the coast with his son, and tho tatter's friend. Mrs. Bhetler will return to the family resi lience at Deactur. Toll Taker Calls . Patrol, but Victim is Catholic Priest William McCJenahan, toll taker on the Douglas street bridge has been held up and robbed pf his nlghta receipts a num ber of times; has been threatened by auspicious looking persons and has other wise felt the annoying drawbacks of the lonely post. A couple of yeara on the Job sweetened hla temper not a whit, nor has his constant rubbing elbows with suspicious looking persona made him any the less suspicious. Early this morning a stout little man approached htm from the Iowa side and commenced to talk. McClanahan got his revolver handy, and pushed tho Omaha police button. A moment later tho patrol dashed up, loaded with reserves. "Tho trouble maker" was an Inoffensive ap pearing Catholic priest, who out walking, had Just stopped at tho toll house for a few minutes chat McCltnahan thought ho was a holdup man, even though the priest was garbed lit regulation raiment. The latter described himself as Itev. John Vllen, Plattsmouth, and said ho was stopping at the Bchlltx hotel in Omaha and was Just "doing some thinking" while taking the noctunral promenade. He was not arrested, "I guess this night work on the lonely old bridge Is getting your goat, Mac," Patrol Conductor Jim Murphy laughed, as the ' wagon turned around and started back to the station. Father Vllen thought It all a good Joke.
