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 the air. We are covering the routes regularly and can give you satisfaction with Pure Clean Artificial-Ice. We have reduced the price and guarantee you Pure Ice, Honest Weight, Good Service.

WYOMING CRUDE OIL TO BE PIPEO LINK TO EXTEND DOWN THE PLATTE RIVER FROM WEST ERN FIELDS GRADUATING GLASS BOLL ISANNOUNGED LARGEST NUMBER IN THE HIS TORY OF THE CITY SCHOOLS 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 to decide. Help the boys and girls in our advertising contest. Dixon Uio Jewel er.
