501 AUT01STS EX
CEED SPEED L
The annual complaint against
automobile speeders and other
violators of the law regarding
traffic is at hand; already there
has been some talk of parties ex
ceeding the speed limit when
driving their oars, as well as
complaint against the faulty
speed regulations provided for by
law. The trouble has not been as
bad this year as last, as the driv
ers have been a little more care
ful, but of course there are al
ways some who like to throw in
the "high" once in a while and
see the poor unfortunate pedes
trian dodge for li is life, but for
tunately these are very few and
far between. On the other hand
the automobile drivers are up
against it when they meet some
man with a team or wagon who
refuse to follow the law of the
road and give them passageway,
or who drives from one side of the
road to the other, causing the
man in the auto to keep guessing
which way to turn his machine.
In this city this rule in regard to
traffic should be followed, as all

braska visitors, under the leader
ship of Superintendent Fred
Hunter of Lincoln, made a side

the great monuments of nature
reared there and the famous

the world. With Miss Foster on
this trip were Mrs. Nettie Stanton

little city of (ilenwood, leaving
here about 1 o'clock and reaching
the Iowa city about ' o'clock. Im
mediately after arrival at (lien

lake at (ilenwood park, where they
spent the afternoon in boating,
which is a very popular pastime
at that place. The lake is small,
hut is one of the prettiest located
in this part of (he country. There
are a large number of boats on
the lake and a good boat house,
which makes a good place for a
summer outing, both for boating
and swimming. The party also
made a trip over the streets and
roads in (ilenwood and vicinity
and report them as being among
the best, that they have traveled
upon this season, being even bet
ter than those of Omaha. The
cyclists returned home in the
evening, well pleased with their
Sunday outing, although they
found the roads deep with dust.
The party expects to pay a visit
to each of the neighboring towns
every Sunday, as in the past. The
party yesterday was composed of
Joe and Otto Rulin, on a Ilarley
Davidson machine; Maldon Brown
on an Excelsior, and Edgar Stein
