11EECIIEK WANTS TO
00 TO THE FRONT
"The bishop of London Is with the
troons across the water, and I am
jUBt that kind of a bishop."
That Is the patriotic answer Rt. Itov.
Geo. A. Beecher, of Hastings, bishop
of this missionary Jurisdiction gave
Gcnl. Adjutant Hall, when tho lattor
called 111 in un and iold him that
though ho was chaplln of tho Fifth
Nebraska regiment, he would bo ex
cuscd from tho regiment on account
of his high position in the church.
Tho answer Is characteristic of the
man a wonderfully patriotic man
hvhoso lovo of country and Us flag is
paramount. When Co. E left North
Platto for Chlcamatigua Park in 189S
with tho expectation of seeing service
In Cuba or tho Philippines, It was
Bishop Beechor who cheered most
loudly for tho boys; and Just boforo
tho train pulled out he entered tho
car, repeated with them tho Lord's
prayer and pronounced a final' bene
diction. It was an act of Idvo, of pa
triotism, of brotherly fooling that
thoso sixty-five mcmbors of Co. E
never forgot and never will. So long
ns such men as Bishop Geo. A.
Bcechcr live, lovo of country will be
kept alive nnd tho desire to honor the
Btars and stripes will not dopart.

The Reason for a Telephone
Company's Depreciation Reserve
Patch up a Buit-of clothes how you will, it will gradually
wear out and have to be replaced by a new one.
Just so it is with tha telephone property. Some parts of it
wear out quicker than others, but repair it again and again as
we do, finally it wears out.
In addition to the wearing out of the property a good many
of the parts are year by year becoming obsolete and out-of-date
and are replaced by something better.
Each year we set aside out of the money we take in from tho
sale of telephone service an amount which we estimate represents
the wearing out of our telephone property during that period.
This money is invested back in the plant, and thus temporr
arily employed as additional capital on which no dividends or
interest charges are paid.
Through our policy of setting aside a depreciation reserve
to provido for tho rebuilding or replacement of the property,
present telephone users pay for tho wearing out of the plant
instead of passing tho debt on to the next generation.
Lack of recognition of this principle has caused many foil
nr,es in privato industries and is a frequent mistake in public
Our policy of setting aside a depreciation reserve is now
generally accepted as tho fairest way to provide for the rebuild
ing or replacement of the equipment when it woars out.
