    Carefree as a Schoolboy
Business worries forgotten, he patiently awaits
that same tug at the line that so often set his heart
to dancing when a schoolboy. Eagerly he senses
the struggle with the greedy beauty in the brook.
The modern business man knows the value of
getting out in the open occasionally, as a tonic
to keep fit.
But he no longer neglects his business while he
is away. “Long distance” makes supervision
possible from any distance and keeps him in touch
with the office.
Ask “long'distance” for the
rates to any town, at any time.

Stuart, Neb.: Three persons were
injured Sunday night when a coupe
crashed into the rear end of a road
ster, which was parked on the right
side of the Nebraska highway No. 1,
about four miles west of Stuart. Al
fred Sutherland of Newport, driver of
the car, which was owned by his
father, suffered the cutting of the
tendon leading to the little finger in
his left hand. Miss Ethel Sutherland,
his sister, had her knee badly cut.
A Mr. Wilch, who was with them re
ceived a deep gash in his arm.
The car that was struck was owned
by County Attorney Nolan of Rock
county. His wife and baby were sit
ting in the car when the accident oc
curred and Mr. Nolan was working on
the car. None of them was injured.
The driver of the coupe was unable
to see the parked car because an
auto from Winner, South Dakota, was
stopped right beside the Nolan car
and its lights were turned on bright,
according to Sutherland. He says he
could only see the car with the lights,
which was on the left side of the road
as he approached. He turned to the
right necessarily to go around it, and
crashed into the Nolan car which, he
says, had no lights visible whatso
The coupe was practically demol
ished, the front end being badly
smashed, and the seat even being torn
loose from the shock of the collision.

Spencer, Neb., July 31: Erection of
a large dam across the Niobrara river
at this point, which has been under
advisement for some time, seems to
be an assurred fact.

on the river bottom.
The dam, which will be located
about 300 feet from the Whiting
bridge, will be made of concrete across
the channel and the rest of dirt.
Total length of the structure will
be 3,400 feet, the fill being 120 feet
wide at the base and 12 feet wide at
the top, and will be one of the largest
dams in the state.
Cost of the structure is estimated

America is still undiscovered, still
waiting to be discovered—by you!
Away from the paved highways, deep
in the hidden solitudes—are shady
S roves fragrant with the scent of
owers—sun-drenched valleys-lazy
streams—or hurrying brooks as befit
your mood. Waiting to please you
with their untouched charms.
Take your Ford and venture forth
into the delights of the unknown.
Leave the beaten path to others. Go
where you will—whether the road
is paved or not.
It is the car of the true adventurer;
the car that no going—be it sand,
dirt or rocky road—can halt; the car
that will take you safely, certainly
and happily to where nature hides
her true loveliness.
