Use Ice Now and Save Food
, People who wait until warm weather to take ice lose
much more than they save. Ice costs but little and in the
early spring, in a well iced refrigerator it melts slowly.
Spring Weather is Changeable.
The thermometer often rises 20 to 30 degrees in a
single day. That is bad for perishable food. Any temper
ature over 50 degrees spoils it rapidly u especially milk.
Stale milk is unwholesome long before it tastes bad.
In a well iced refrigerator your food is not only
kept evenly cold, it is protected from dust and bacteria in

OIL TO BE PIPEO
LINK TO EXTEND DOWN THE
PLATTE RIVER FROM WEST
LARGEST NUMBER IN THE HIS
TORY OF THE CITY
A number of Nebraska papers are
printing stories of the projected oil
pipe lino which is to extond east from
tho Casper country, following, tho
iPlatto river as far east, as Kearney.
when it will go overland to Kansas
City whero tho refinery is to bo lo
cated. Such a pipo lino will pass J
through Lincoln county and near
North Platto. Newspapers' roporta
say it will , coat not less than
$20,000,000 and that it will bo ofUu
monso benefit to the country through
which it passes. It will furnish crudo
oil for manufacturing purposes and n
cheap fuel for domestic use.
Upon learning that tho pipe lino
would traverse a portion of Nebras
ka, Congressman Jeffries made In
quiry at the lurcau of nines In Wash
ington as to just how much of tho
suae might bo expected to benefit. IIo
was informed that In all probability
tho lino would follow tho North Platte
river as far east as Buffalo county,
whero It would bo deflected south to
tho Kansas line. An official of tho
bureau stated that tho Platto river
veers northward at Buffalo county,
and ho said it.soomed logical that tho
pipe lino should leave tho river at this
point. It is understood that a com
plete survey of tho route has not been
made, and Grand Island, Omaha and
other cities In tho eastern part of Ne
braska aro hopeful that the line will
run directly to Omaha and then south
to Kansas City. However, that Is a
matter for the Mammoth Oil company
