Lincoln Commercial Club Gives
Results of Some Careful
From Saturday's Dally.
Recently a Wisconsin city, in
spired by wild and weird reports
of the efforts of the protracted
dry spell in Nebraska, wrote the
governor offering free pasturage
for Nebraska live stock. This
Wisconsin town, admittedly gen
erous, simply had been deceived
by false reports sent out by
"string fiends." The Lincoln
Commercial club made a quiet
investigation upon learning of
the generous offer from Wiscon
sin and discovered the following
If Nebraska took advantage of
ihe generous Wisconsin offer
she would send to our neighbor
on the northeast 570,000 milch
cows, 1. 300,000 of beef cattle,
1, i50,000 head of hogs, and 800.
000 head of horses and mules, to
say nothing of 350,000 head of
sheep. In order to insure the
proper feeding of this live stock
Nebraska could send along, more
than,ono bushels of oats,
more than 2, 200. 000 tons of al
falfa, more .han 3.000.000 tons
of other hay, to say nothing of a
few million tons of corn silage,
sorghum and something like
ilo.000.000 bushels of corn. If
necessary Nebraska could send
along the "shorts" and "bran"
from C.n.000.000 bushels of
wheat. Nebraska admits a short
age in the 1013 corn crop but
points with pride to the fac'i that
her corn crop will turn out more
bushels per capita than thai of
any other slate. In common with
her sister stales Nebraska has
suffered from the unprecedented
drouth, but just the same she
comes to the front as usual with
more wheat per capita, more oals
per capita, more alfalfa and hay
per capita, more apples per cap
ita and more corn per capita
than any of her sister . states.
She appreciates the kindly sym
pathy of Wisconsin, but with all
these crops and more than ?210,
000.000 deposited in her banks,
-tate and national. Nebraska ex
pects to pull through the winter
in pretty good shape.
From Monday's Daily.
Another, former Plattsinouth
young' man who is advancing to
the front in his chosen line of
work is (ieorge L. Morrison, who
is at present with the Monotype
Manufacturing Company of
America, with headquarters at
Chicago. Mr. Morrison came in
yesterday morning to pay a
short visit to his mother, Mrs.
John Herman, and his grandpar
ents. Mr. and Mrs. T. C. S. Dabb.
en route to Topeka. Kansas
where he is to look after some
work for the monotype company
for a few weeks. ieorge had hi
first experience with the mono
type machine, which is a com
bined typesetting and casting
machine, in this city in the office
of the Evening News, and after
that paper ceased to exist he
went to St. Paul, Minnesota,
where he engaged further in that
line of work, going from there to
the headquarters of the company
in Chicago, and it is a matter of
much gratification to his rela
tives and friends that his ability
has been recognized by this cor
poration, which is one of the
largest in the country, and his
advancement has been rapid.
fleorge expects shortly to take a
special course in the making of
the machines to fit himself for
the handling of them in setting
them up and placing them in
running order, as the managers
of the company are very much
pleased at his showing along this
Accident at the Shops.

This morning as Fred Pissling,
a painter employed at the Bur
lington shops, was engaged in
taking a pane of glass out of a
window- frame he was so unfor
tunate as to have the glass break,
and as a result he reecived a se
vere gash across the right hand
that needed several stitches to
close, and it will be several "days
before Fred will be able to sling
the paint as usual. ,
The picnic committees are
busy making preparations for
the big' time they have promised
the people for September 10th.
They are having no trouble sell
ing concessions, as Nehawka has
a reputation for treating these
people fairly. A colored quartet
and other free attractions will be
provided in addition to the band.
Tulenes will be here, of course,
with their merry-go-round. Pic
nics in Cass county would be a
dreary affair without the familiar
toot! tool! of this pleasure de
vice, and the various committees
in the towns, it is said, never set
the date for a picnic without first
finding out from the Tulenes
whether or not the dale is open.

the Wahoo flouring mills, was in
the city yesterday looking after
the interests of his firm, which
has become quite extensive in
this city during the last few
years, as there is a large demand

The Wahoo mills are the manu
facturers of the celebrated "For

Ihe mill has made every effort to
put before their patrons the best

siantly striving to make the
standard of the flour the best on
the market. The "Forest Rose'
brand of flour is sold by all the
leading dealers in groceries and
the manufacturers have estab
lished the policy of either giving
perfect satisfaction or the mony

greatlv increased.

is for the loss of two hay stacks
burned in 191 i and last fall and
for the killing of a heifer calf

alleged, was struck by a train of

no evidence in the case yesterday

by counsel.
Petition was filed today in the
county court for the probate of

Resignation of District Manager
of the Telephone Company,
Takes Effect Monday
From Wednesday's Dally.
The resignation of Mr. T. II.
Pollock, district commercial man
ager of the Lincoln Telephone and
Telegraph company, has been ten
dered to the officials of the com
pany to take etTect the 15th of thj
month. The reason for the res
ignation is due to the fact that
Mr. Pollock will in the future be
located in Omaha where he has
opened an office and will be the
distributor for the state of Ne
braska ami western Iowa for the
Henderson automobile, and his
headquarters will be at 2218 Far
nam street where he will have the
cars on exhibition. The Bender,
son is one of the biggest sensa
tions in the line of automobiles
that has been manufactured in
ttiis country as it is a kerosene
using- machine and does away
with the use of gasoline and has
been very successful in all tests
that have been made of it
throughout the country. The
Henderson auto i manufactured
at Indianapolis, Indiana, where
the use of the machine has be
come quite extensive. The Hen
derson auto with the use of ker
osene at 8c a gallon is consider
able cheaper to maintain than the
gasoline using machine and the
kerosene at the same time pos
sessing more lubricating strength
saves the automobile owner much
in the cost of lubricating oil a
it cuts this item down almost one
half. The Henderson car was
placed recently in a tour with a
number of machines and through,
out the trip from Indianapolis to
Los Angeles maintained its speed
with the other machines and ar
rived at the finishing point at the
same time with the gasoline cars.
For these machines a special car
burator has been manufactured
and it has solved the difficulties
that have been experienced in the
past with the attempts to secure
a successful kerosene burning car
and the Henderson now has the
distinction of being the first suc
cessful machine on the market
with the kerosene using engines.
Mr. Pollock will continue to
make his home in this city for the
present at least, going to Omaha
and returning each day to look
after the interests of his business,
and his estimable family will con
tinue to be residents' in this city
which will be most pleasing to
their many friends and Mr. Poll
ock will take the best wishes of
his friends here with him in his
new business venture.
