According to news received in this city yesterday, Henry Marnach, brother of Paul Marnach, of this city, is inter ested in some valuable oil lands located near the Reed Deer river lands in Can ada. Recently a big Btrike of oil was made in that region and it is said that he strike promises to be of immense value within a short time. Henry Mar nach wan born and raised on a farm three miles south of this city and his many friends will wish him good luck In his late enterprise. 1 Tuesday in the circuit court, before Judge Cleeton, the suit of Gertrude Wolf against Dm. Morse and Robertson to recover the sum of $20,000 for al leged malpractice came up for hearing. The suit was based on the allegation that on May 23, 1912, tho plaintiff sus tained a fracture of one of her ankles, and that Drs. Morse and Robertson were called on to reduce tho fracture and take care of the enso. The allegation of malpractico wns based on tho furth er statement of tho plaintiff thnt, after the anklo wns encased in a plaster cast by tho doctors, that tho cast was not taken off for 40 days, and thnt other wise the treatment was not skillful, and such as should have been given her. The plaintiff had not completed her case lust night, and this morning placed a brother of th Injured woman on the stand, His testimony took his attorneys by surprise, for ho testified thnt the enst was taken from tho anklo on the fourth day, and the ankle massaged, nnd thnt ho wns present when it was done. This testimony wns so different from what tho attorneys had anticipat ed, that, after a consultation, they an nounced thnt it was useless to proceed further with the case, ns the whole mat ter rested on tho failure of the doctors to remove tho enst, nnd that, ns their own witnesses, whom they could not Impeach, had testified that the cast had been removed, thnt there was noth ing left of tho case, and so they asked thnt they be non suited on their own motion, which wns done. Dr. Morse stated this afternoon that he supposed he should feel 'grateful to the patient for giving tho public so exnlted an idea of his wealth ns to make It appear thnt a judgment for 20,000 could be easily met by ho and Dr. Robertson. The fact that the doctors were proved to hnvo dono their work well by the witnesses of tho plaintiff is doubly e-rotifying to them, for it shows thnt there was not a shadow of reason for bringing tho suit. The authorities amazement Lynka coroborated this story. Aside from the fact too, that, in common with her companions, the girl had suffered some hardships from her nomadic life, she seemed to have been well treated. The court gave her her choice be tween returning to Sacramento or re maining with the gypsies, and she promptly chose the gypsies. DEATH NOTICES. 4 BUSTER.

Judge Sutton yesterday ruled that 14-year-old Lynka might remain with the Mitchell band of gypsies, in which she was found near Omaha recently, if she chose. The child wns reported kidnaped from Sacramento more that a year ago and a national hunt for her followed.

Tho Omaha authorities promptly lock ed up the entire band and hel l Lynka for instructions from Sacramento. "King" Mitchell did not admit the kidnaping, however. On his departure for Argentina, the girl's father, he said, had given the child to him and she was to wed son when the two of them btcams old enough. Sbs lived in Sac ramento, he asserted, not with her fath er, as hsd been reported but with her grandparent. He admitted giving a considerable sum of money to the child's father but declared it was mere ly a present not his daughter's price.
