The Make-Shift on Salt Creek a;
Great Joke as a Pleasure Re-
sort for the City People. I
Tin- Motor I tout, for December,
contains a most interesting article
on Lincoln ami its famous Capital
Beach. Tin? article, says in part:
"Such a town is Lincoln, or was
a few yeare ago, before il. grow
ing enough l.o put on long panls.
II is so far inlaml il. couldn't be
any inlander if it Iried. II- is aliout
as far from one ocean as the other
r perhaps a lillle fai l her ami not
ho much nearer I he Oulf of Mex
ico. The only water it boasted,
and il didn't hoasl of I hut., was a
.snaky, slimy, oily .stream of black
id.uu' about I he consistency of the
fdiieago river. It is called Salt
("rock, and if it is anthing like the
Salt Crock up which down-and-out
politicians aro supposed to sail
I am sorry for them.
, "You can readily sen this
stream did not satisfy tho yearning-
of tho younger generation for
water. All tho creek was good for
was to Hood the bottoms in tho
spring, when the unfortunate of
that section were forced to enjoy
a limited boating season and to
furnish a little skating in winter
when tho ice served tho same pur
pose as a lid on a garbage can."
, Tho arliclo goes on to tell in
very picturesque language tho
birth of tho idea to establish n
groat inland sail lake on which
motor boats ami steam boats
could ply, and all the attractive
features of a seaside resort, on
joyed by I lit residents of Lincoln.
It lolls of tho purchase of an old
dbnble-dook steamboat., which was
bought for a song, the sl.eam ma
chinery lorn out ami a gasoline
engine installed, which furnish
ed power to run it up the Mis
souri river to Plallsmnulh, where
il was placed on two Hal cars and
hauled to Lincoln and dumped into
tho lake that had been formed
Tho story lolls of the daring
trip of the vessel out on the lake
when if was struck by a storm,
which was terrific, and (ho checks
of tho excursionists blanched as
they thought of the awful fate
that awaited lliein in tho rolling
deep; but in the midst of the up
roar the boy pilot rose to the
situation and bravely gelling out
at the boat in the middle of tho
lake, waded to shore, a distance of
some ;i(IO yards, , and relumed,
towing a large cat boat, with which
the passengers were brought
ashore. Tho crowd made a great
demonstration nvor the young
hero, but he merely said; "Aw,
say, what's all the row? I came
after the boat so all von folks
wouldn't have to gel your feet
wet wadin' ashore. There wasn't
but six inclies of water all Die
way ashore, and the lake's only a
few feel deep, anyway. You
couldn't drown unless you stood
on your head."
If the writer really desired to
view an ideal spot for motor
hoaling ho should make a trip to
lMallsoniulh, where the old Mis
souri furnishes an ideal place for
Uio enjoyment, of tins sport.
I here are a number of en
thusiasts here who possess sev
eral llrsl-class motor boats, and
they can always llml plenty of
water in tho river.
