THE BEE: OMAHA. SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1917.
START WORK ON BIG NEWBUILDING W. E. Shafer Throws First Spadeful of Earth While Employes Look On. MODERN HOME FOB AD FIRM Ground was broken Friday at Sev enteenth and Webster streets for the new plant of M. F. Shafer & Co., W. E. Shafer, the president, handling the spade and throwing the first dirt. The operation was in the presence of the officers of the company, some thirty of the employes and a number of the business men of the city. The building will be 66x132 feet, live stories, with high basement. It will be of concrete reinforced con struction, faced with red pressed brick and absolutely fireproof. The cost will exceed $150,000. Bids for its erection will be opened April 14, the contract awarded immediately there alter, and the building will be ready for occupancy September 1 of this year. The development of the Shafer company has been a marvel to busi ness men of the city. Fifteen years ago Mr. Shafer opened up a one-man job printing office in a back room on the upper floor of a lower Farnam street building and since then the business has grown to such an extent that employment is given to nearly 100 persons. Hat Grown Steadily. Running the job office a few years, Mr. Shafer saw the possibilities for a manufacturing plant and in a small way went into the manufacture of art and plain calendars. He contin ued putting out this line, adding to hit facilities and several times moving into larger quarters as the business increased, until 1913, when he inter ested capital, put in new and modern machinery and engaged in the manu facture of calendars and novelties on an extensive scale. The business grew rapidly and three years ago he moved into the building at Twelfth and Farnam, taking one floor. Since then two additional floors have been added and again the business is cramped for room. In the new building the Shafer com pany will engage in the manufacture of calendars, art specialties and nov elties on an extensive scale, having the largest plant of the kind in the central west.

Honeymoon for This Aged Couple ' Is Not a Novelty The time-tried saying that love is always young was demonstrated for the umpty steenth time at the court house late Thursday afternoon, when George Hoone, bl years old, and Mrs. Bessie Oley, 70 years old, were married by Judge Holmes. Both of the old people live at Oakland, la. Mr. Hoone was a widower and Mrs. Oley a widow. The bridegroom told Cupid Stubbendorf, marriage license clerk, that they would go on a honey moon trip before returning to the Iowa town to make their home.

WARRIORS ARISE IN COURT HOUSE Young Women There Want to Be Nurses and Men Want to Shoot. AUTO CORPS IN PROSPECT! War has crowded out all other ! topics of conversation among court houscrs and several county employes are talking seriously of raising a com- pany from within the confines of the big granite building. Though the ' court house military company is still talk, the young women employes ol ! the county are busy telling each other what "their heroes" will do in case , they go to Europe with expeditionary I forces. Several of the fair ones would go to the front as nurses. Clyde Sundblad and Joe Sherry of the county court are being groomed for heads of a court house automobile corps. Both own cars and arc ex pert drivers, as is Herbert Stubben dorf, marriage license clerk, l'roba tion Officer Miller believes his forte would be hurling hand grenades.
