Quite a. crowd assembled at the bank
at Swallow Hill as the announcement

point, but those wishing to accompany

Cn the McCook Division of the Bur
lington, Delaying Trains.
Two bridge tires in a day delayed
train service on the McCook dlvosion
the Burlington, and kept the
ridge builders and repair gangs of
that section of the system busy.
Farther, these fires delayed several
trains and caused a detour that added
much to the mileage of limited No. 6.
The first was an eighty-foot span
between Poe and Trenton, west of
McCook, which caught fire at 3:30
p. m. Sunday and was not repaired continued to reside in the same lo
until 1:30 a. m. Monday. No. 10, due cality near the place of his wife's
here at an early hour yesterday morn-
Ing, was caught behind the burned
bridge and delayed so that it arrived
here at noon. No. 6, the limited, far
behlnd No. 10, was detoured via
Brush and Alliance, and brought Into
Lincoln ten minutes ahead of No. 10,
at 11:05 a. m. At iLncoln, while
both trains were In the yards, one
passenger got off of No. 10 and board-
ed No. 6, hoping to make better time
to Chicago. No. 6 runs via Omaha
and No. 10 via Louisville to Pacific
Junction, so that No. 10 was forty-
flve minutes ahead of No. 6 out of the
Junction. No. 14, the St. Joe train
from Denver, was detoured via Ster-
ling and Holdrege. Nos. 3 and 15
were delayed east of the burned
bridge two hours.
The second fire was between San-
born and Halgler, near Sanborn. The
fire started at 10 a. m. yesterday and
the line was again cribbed up and Mrs. Moore early became a Chris
open for travel at 1:30 p. m. No. 9 tian and Identified herself with that
was delayed two hours and forty mln-
utes and No. 13 two hours.
A continued drouth In the part of
the country where these bridges were
burned Is said to have made these
and other fires possible. The bridges
were wooden structures, but were
covered with sheet Iron, and it Is not
known how the fires started.
A few years ago bridge and depot
fires were frequent on what Bur-
lington men designate the "lignite
ends," that is the divisions west of
the Lincoln division, where lignite
fuel Is used on the engines. In re-
cent years, however, the depots have
been roofed with metal shingles and
the bridges have been given sheet
Iron coverings. These have prevent-
ed fire losses. I
It is possible the two bridge fires
reported started from . prairie fires
that got over on the' right of way.
Missouri Pacific trains were delay-
ed Saturday by a burned bridge near
Unlon. Repairs were quickly made.

The following appears on record in
the commissioners' proceedings of
thia week: "A resolution was this

how? Is it possible that our sheriff
has not done what the law specifically
demands that he should do? Other
officials have been making their re

have the commissioners not com

Quality is the first consideration
and Quality as we use it does
not apply simply to good cloth,
but takes in all the points that
make a suit desirable. It meaus
that the cloth is not made up
to the suit just as it comes

sponged once by steam and
cold water; that each suit is

It means that the inside framework of the coat is made as
good as the $60 custom tailor makes it. We have an inside
model here to show you how our quality line is made. With
out this important foundation your suit will not hold its
shape. You will not find it in the suits quot d to you at the
cheaper clothiers. We don't claim to sell cheap clothes.
Our clothes are good clothes, Quality clothes, but they are the
most economical after all. When we ask you $20 to $35 for
our Quality line we are giving you tht best goods you can buy
from the cream of the best makes in this country. You
certainly cannot find such a line in this town and you will
pay more for such quality in the city. Come in and select
your pattern while the picking is good. We will hang it

The Board of Education and Superin
tendent Talk to Parents.
We wish to call the attention of
the parents and business men of the
city to the compulsory attendance
and child labor laws. The compul
sory attendance law requires that all
children between the ages of 7 and
14 years roust attend school the en
tire time that school is ln session.
Children between the ages of 14 and
16, who has not completed the eighth
grade, are also required to attend
school the entire time it is in session.
Any parent who neglects or refuses
to comply with this law is subject to
a fine of not less than $5 nor more
than $25 for each offense.
The child labor law leaves any
person liable who employs any child
under 14 during the time school Is in.
session, and also leaves them liable
If they employ any child between the
ages of 14 and 16 who has not com
pleted the eighth grade and who does
not have a certificate Issued by the
city superintendent of schools.
The penalty for the violation of
this act Is Inflicted upon both parent
and employer. Whoever employs a
child under 16 and whoever having
under his control a child under such
age, and permtis a child to be em
ployed In violation of this act, shall
ror eacn oirense he fined not more
than $50, and whoever continues to
employ any child after being notified
shall for every day thereafter that
such employment continues, be fined
not less than $5 nor more than $20
The foregoing Is a brief summary
of the two laws, both of which are
being violated ln this city. Wewlsh
to urge upon parents and employers
the necessity of complying with this
law at once. A truant officer has been
employed by the board of education,
and Is now securing the names of
children who are out of school, both
employed and unemployed. Begin'

acts will be aken into custody by the
truant officer and notice served upon
parent and employer. All vlolatlors
of these acts are to bo taken before
the pcMce Judge for a hearing. This
notice will be given publicity that all
may have an opportunity to meet its
requirements. The age of every
child of school age is on file ln the
office of the city superintendent, who
will be glad to co-operate with busl
nesa men and other employers. Chil
