We do not wish to tread upon
the toes of anyone in a manner
that will make a tore spot, but
we beg leave to say that from a
moral standpoint this town needs
fixing in certain respects. It is
a well known fact that at almost
any hour of the day and evening
there is vulgar an i profane lan
guage used on the street, making
it very embarrassing at times for
those who do not indulge in that
kind of talk, and especially for
ladies and children. It ought to
be stopped. Perhaps some of
those who thus-offend do not do
so intentionally or maliciously,
while there are some w ho care lit
tle what kind of language they
use or who hears it. The man
(or boy) who has a wife, daugh
ter or sister, would no doubt re
sent any profane or vulgar lan
guage if uttered in their presence
or hearing, and they should show
the same respect for others that
they would have others show their
relatives. By all means, let this
habit of using vile language in
public be stopped, voluntarily if
possible, by the aid of the law if
The editor of this paper has
been requested more than once to
"roast" a few offenders, but that
is not our specially. When we
think a little "roasting" is re
quired we will attend to it and
take the responsibility, and those
who want it done for their own
satisfaction must do the same
write their "roasts," sign their
names, back it up. We stand

ORDERED TO GO HENCE
AND NEVER RETORN
This morning the sherilT made
a visit to the Burlington depot
and inquired the whereabouts of
a certain lady who has been mak
ing her home here for the past
few weeks, and llnding her there,
informed her that it would be best
for her to remove from the city.
The story, as much as can be
learned, is that the lady had some
differences with her husband
about a year ago and separated,
but a few weeks ago the husband
came to her and agreed to take
her with hini to this city if she
would promise to try and remedy
her ways. The couple came here
and all went well until a few days
ago, when the woman began to
resume her actions that had
caused the disagreement between
herself and husband, and they
linally become so llagrant that
the authorities were notified and
the woman in formed, to leave the
city at once.

1'IIIH LECTURE GAR
Employes of Shops To Have Lec
ture That Will Prove of Bene
fit to Every One of Them.
Frank B. Thomas, who- for
years was connected with the Bur
lington headquarters in Omaha,
but who has lately removed to
Chicago and is llllinfi: the position
of safely lecturer for the entire
system, will be here tomorrow
with his safety lecture car, which
will be run up into the shop yards
and lectures on the preventing of
accidents given each day until the
entire force of employes are able
to hear them. The lectures will
be given at 12:15, 4:15 and 5
o'clock in order that the men em
ployed in the shops can have an
opportunity to attend.
Mr. Thomas is not only deliver
ing lectures, but in connection
with his talks he is showing
stereopticon pictures, each one of
which is an object lesson, por
traying the correct, instead of the
wrong way of doing tasks requir
ed of active railroad men in the
yards, on the train, in the shops
and around the freight houses.
For more than one and one-half
years he has been doing this line
of work and has come to be re
garded one of the best safety lec
turers in the country.
A little more than two years
ago Mr. Thomas went into the
safely lecture business for the
Burlington and since then he has
lalked to its tens of thousands of
employes at terminals, division
points and in the larger cities
along the line.
The Burlington was one of the
llrst of the railroads to take up
the "Safety First" slogan, which
has since been adopted by more
than half of 1 lie roads of the
When Mr. Thomas llrst started
in the work, his lectures were
given in halls and opera houses
in the towns along the lines, but
to him it soon became apparent
that this was not the right way to
reach the employes. His lectures
and his pictures always drew
crowds, but railroad employes
were largely in the minority. He
discovered that it was too much
of a task for (he men to dress up
and go down lown to listen to a
lecture after having finished
day's hard work, lie called the
attention of the ofllicals )o (he
matter and was told lo work out
a scheme that would meet with
his own approval, lie suggested
the lecture car idea and was fold
lo go ahead and work out his
plans, Given a free hand, he se
cured a large size passenger
coach and converted it into a lec
turn hall, capable of seating fifty
persons. Since that lime this
coach has been the business place
of Mr. Thomas and practically his
home when out on the lines.
