There never was such a time in tho
history of this country for newspaper
reading, and it is important to road a
paper of impartial views obe that ia
free from, any office-seeking or office
holding influences. The important
thing to a groat newspaper like The
Lincoln State Journal is to get trial
readers, as it haa no trouble holding
them by its quality. Tho cheapest way
to get new readers is to make a special
price, which we now do-only $2 for
the daily and Sunday paper until Janu
ary 1, 191&-much less than the rogular
pneo. At that time the paper will stop
coming unless you order it continued
and pay in advance for it. You really
cannot afford to be without this capital
city paper when you can securo it at
such a price. Send $2 to tho Lincoln
State Journal today and the paper will
come to you regularly the remainder of
this year. It will bo a lively year, too.

Ten years of Advancement of the Union Pacific Railroad
Ten Years Ago This Month
As clipped from the newspapers
of that date
Announcement was made at tho Union
Pacific headquarters that the double
tracking of tho line from Omaha to
Valley was to be completed in the
A comparison of double tracking figures between the year 1902 and 1912 shows a vast and inter-
eating growth. Prior to 1902 the Union PaclGc had a total of only 74.41 miles of double track.
Today there is an unbroken stretch of double track of 304 miles from Omaha to Julesburg, Colo.;
while there is a total of 694 miles of double track on the main line and branches not including
130 miles, now being Jaid. , .
While reviewing the above figures, note a few of the improvements and extensions other thun double-tracking
that have been brought about during the last decade:
The equipment of tho entire line with a automatic electric block safety signals affording protection to
patrons and employes. ,
The ballasting of its roadbed with Sherman gravel disintegrated granite insuring the traveler freedom from
all road dust. i
The straightening of sharp curves, tho elimination of steep grades, tho shortening of distance by cut-offs,
the tunneling of solid granito mountains, tho filling in of deep valleys, the bridging of wide expanses of
water nnd tho making of various other improvements that contribute to the comfort and safety of

A Nebraska who has returned from
the Chicago convention says that tho
nomination of President Taft waa almost
a foregone conclusion after the first
skirmish which resulted in the election
of Mr. Root. He did not form
a very favorable opinion of the Roose
velt leoders as a general rule. They
were a little too much along the lino of
a rule or ruin policy and did not appear
to bo near as gentlemanly in their con
duct as did those who were lined up for
the other candidates, and in their talks
rather turned sober thinking men n
galnstthem. They were especially in
sulting when Taft men were speaking,
whilo on the other hand as a general
thing the Roosevelt speakers were not
interrupted in any great degree. It was
tho general opinion that a great denl
of tho Bentiment against Mr. Taft
would subside after people had had time
to think tho matter over.
E. D. Hamilton, a Julesburg bankor,
a member of the Knights Templar of

operation for acute appendicitis.
