, LOCAL FIRM SHIPS
17(51 CANS OF HAY.
Tho placo occupied by hay in the
agricultural productions of Lincoln
county is shown to a marked degree
by the shipments made since the first
of last July by tho firm of Loypoldt
& Pennington .from stations in the
Platte Valley in this county. During
tho past seven and one-halt months
this firm has shipped from Lincoln
county 1,761 cars of hay, approximat
ing 21,000 tons, for which they paid
tho growers $416,920. This Is equiv
alent, to disbursing! over $2,000 a day
for every working day of tho period

docs this glvo evldonco of the value
of the hay" Holds of tlie valley, but
gives an Insight into tho volumo of
business transacted yearly by this
firm, whoso shipment of hay from
Elkhorn valley points aro nearly as
great as from Lincoln county, and in
addition buy and soil grain, mill stuff,
flour and coal.
But these shipments of 1,761 cars
of hay by Loypoldt & Pennington does
not by- any moans represent tho full
valuo of tho hay crdp, for thero aro
not only other shippers, but some few
of tho growers do their own shipping.
Taking tho alfalfa shipments in con
junction -witli the hay, tho value of
both would mount up well toward the
million dollar mark.

"If tho splendid work dono during
the past few years in putting the soil
ing methods of .the Industry upon a
higher plane in the eyes of tho public
Is to continue, then it may become
necessary to adopt measures among
representative dealers that will make
It highly unpleasant for unscrupulous
dealers to misrepresent, by their
cheap methods, the real character of
tho motor car business.
"Public confidence is as big and
vital an asset to the industry as a
whole as It is to the individual dealor,
and any dealer who clearly, shows that
he has no' regard for such confidence
should not bo permitted to profit by it.
"There are three things all of
. which have to do with commoif hon
esty that will largely detormlno the
future of this business:
"First, the manufacture of honest
cars. No manufacturer has a right to
mislead tho public or to force thev
dealer to compromise himself by rep
resenting a car to be something
which lie secretly Knows it Is not.
There can be no such thing as per
manent4 success for either a car or a
dealor that is not basted on probable
"Second, an "honest, helpful, abso
lutely uniform and businesslike rela
tionship betw'eon tho manufacturer
and his dealers.
"Third, oppn-nnd-abovc-bonrd deal
ing with motor car purchasers, with '
no fictitious allowances on used cars
to cover up price concessions; no
fictitious "free" service thnt is charg
ed for In advance In tho price of the
car: no fictitious claims for merit or
iierformanco that cannot be easily
"Tho application of simple honesty
at thoso vital points will provide tho
surest possible guarantee for a
healthy futuro for thoso dealers and
manufacturer who hoyo " vision
enough nnd courage enough to follow
a straight line.

In an interview Sunday, Georgo
Clomenceau, tho French premior, said:
"I have said that the war is won.
It would perhaps bo moro accurate to
say thnt thero Is a lull in the storm.
Recent disclosures have enabled to
look deeper Into tho purposes of the
enemy than wo could heretofore. It
was not puroly a dream of mllltarv
domination on tho part of Prussia. It
was a definite, calculated conspiracy
to exterminate Franco ns well Indus
trinity and commercially as In a mili
"And this explains mnny of tho
activities of tho Gorman army which
wo wore not ablo to understand. Wo
can now seo why they stole tho run
chlnory from our factories, why thoy
destroyed tho coal mines of Lens; vhv
thero was all tho wanton devastation
of French territory, oven when thoy
woro in retreat.
"And In this plmao of their ar-
making effort they have not beon a I to
gether unsuccesful. Tho Industrial life
of Franco has been so wrecked that
Its resuscitation Is most difficult,
while Germany has boon ablo to .ive
hor factories Intact and ready for im
mediate efficient oporatlon.
"And financially, by reason of tho
blockade, (tho valuo of which :i-
mllltary factor no ono will question)
tho Gorman war debt is almost wholly
a debt to her own people, easily re-
rludlated, whllo tho debt of Fran"- Is
ono which must bo paid.
"Even as to tho military triumphs
over Germany thoro Is a situation not
altogether without disquieting den
tures for France. It is quite true that
tho allies have takon tho German navy
and In a largo measure have dlwrm-
ed tho enemy. But thoro romnlns a
