If a company gives good service, earns only enough
to maintain its plant up to recognized standards of effi
ciency, to provide for reconstruction cost when worn
out or obsolete, and pays only a fair dividend to its
shareholders then the company's rates are fair and
Rates in many cases may appear unfair because
the reasons for various changes are misunderstood. In
every case our rates are based on the results of scienti
fic investigation after years of expert study of the vari
ous problems into rate making.
Telephone rates in various communities must dif
fer because of the conditions that enter into rate com
putations varying in given localities. Telephone opera
tion is different from nearly anywher in this the
greater the extent of service, the higher the cost.
This peculiarity of telephone charges will be dis
cussed in the next article in this paper.

MAN STRUCK BY BUR-
Seriously Injured While Sitting
on the Railroad Track, Un
conscious of Surroundings.
The Sioux City special, pulled
by Engineer John Snead, yester
day afternoon, as it approached
Louisville, and rounding a curve,
struck a laborer who was sitting
on the track and quite severely
injured the man. The injured
man had been employed at the
Murphy quarry and had been to
the dentist's ofllce to have some
teeth extracted, and had taken
gas, which rendered him too ill to
proceed, and be sat down on the
track in a half conscious slate
and seemed unconscious of
The freight was a through
train and ordinarily did not make
any slops between Pacific Junc
tion and Ashland, and was going
at. a rapid pace when the curve
was rounded, and although Mr.
Snead did what he could to stop
in time to avoid injuring the man,
he could not do so. The unfor
tunate man had his hip crushed
and his side and arm badly
bruised. He was taken lo Louis-
villo and Dr. Lewis called to dress
his injuries. The man had no
funds and Commissioner Freid-
erich was communicated with and
arrangements were made or the
countv to caro for tho man until
his friends can be notified.
No blame could be attributed lo
tho train crew for tho accident.
It was an unfortunate circum
stance that allowed tho man to
leave the village on bis return to
camp until he was able to travel.
Mr. Henry Hilbert was an Oma
ha passenger this afternoon,
where he looked after business
matters for a time.

Mr. Jacob Meisinger returned
from Cedar Creek on tho morn
ing train today, where he went a
short time ago to inspect the
crops and see for himself just
how the corn is growing. Mr.
Meisinger says the wheat harvest
is progressing nicely and the
yield will be very good. Corn is
in excellent condition and will not
suffer for rain for several days.
Oats and spring wheat would be
much bettered with a good rain.
