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 facts: 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 50.mm,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. ANOTHER PLATTSMOUTH BOY IS RAPIDLY ADVANC ING TO THE FRONT 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 line. Accident at the Shops. From Tuesday's Dally.

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.

POLLOCK 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.
