Miss Ault in Daily News Contest.
Miss Bernese Ault, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. A. O. Ault, of Ceda.
Creek, is in the Omaha Daily New.-;
auto contest, and of course is making
every effort to capture the prize, and
has been making a great advancement
to that end. This little lady will ap
preciate any and all favors that may
be extended her in this contest by the
readers of the News in any part of
the county. If you are a reader of
Ihe paper and going to renew, remem
ber the little Cass county lady and
help her win the prize by sendin?
your subscription to Mr. A. O. Ault,
postmaster of Cedar Creek. Your
kindness will surely be greatly ap
preciated by her.
Remember the dance at the Sayles
hall in Cedar Creek on next Saturday
evening. There will be good musi;
and a good time for those who attend.
Ed Mc Bride, who for some tims
was engaged in the meat business, in
the employ of Wolff & Ault, and who
has been spending the past two
months on the Pacific coast, returned
to Cedar Creek this week, where he is
visiting with friends. He reports -i
very pleasant trip and tells an inter
esting story of the numerous sights of
note he visited in the coast country.
Another Business Industry.
If the natural resources of Cedar
Creek continue to grow, and the busi
ness industry that is necessary to takv?
care of such resources continue to be
launched in and near this village, she
will sure be put on the business map
of Nebraska. The latest is the saw
mill equipment that was installed jusc
north of the tracks last Friday by Mr.
Christ Overgaard of Omaha. This
new industry will employ about twen
ty men and five teams all the time,
and the present contract that Mr.
Overgaard has to fill will require
about six months' work, sawing at the
rate oi" 175 to 200 logs a day. This
lumber is utilized in the manufacture
of certain kinds of boxe-s, and is of a
timber that is not found in all lo
calities. His present contracts are
with Omaha and Kansas City houses
and will be shipped as rapidly as it
can be placed in the proper dimensons
for their use. These contracts will
mean many thousands of feet. Cedar
Creek will soon don the garb of a real
city, the big factory whistle will be
heard morning, noon and night. Let
the good work go on, it all helps to in
crease the business of Cedar Creek
and vicinity. Mr. Overgaard brought
the more experienced men in this line
of work with him from Omaha, while
the balance of the men and all the
teams are employed from this lo
cality, and means a great deal more
to the weekly pay-roll of this village.
Takes in the Omaha Shoot.
J. F. Wolff departed Tuesday morn
ing of this week overland in his auto
for Omaha, where he took part in the
crack shoot that was being held in
that city, given at the grounds of the
Jrr.aha Gun club. He went via Louis
ville, where he picked up Roily Noyes
and John Gauer, two other good shoot
ers of this section, who made the trio
with him. These gentlemen will make
an excellent representation of Cass
county shooters, especially after they
wee joined by Jim Terryberry, who
after looking after some business mat
ter in the county seat, drove to Oma
ha, where we understand he attended
Business on the Increase.
Business seems to be on the increase
at the First Security Bank of Cedar
Creek. This is one of the recent ad
ditions to the village that means more
than any other one thing that could
possibly be launched here, and all
should rejoice in the fact that they
are growing each day from the start.
The bank is safe and sound, and will
no doubt be the future depository of
all in this locality.
Shipping Hedge Posts.
Schafer Bros, loaded and shipped
a carload of hedge posts from this
station to their ranch in the western
part of the state last Saturday. With
the addition of the other business has
made Cedar Creek a real busy place
on his day. as there were eleven teams
engaged in hauling the posts, and all
wagons returned with a load of sand
that will be used for building pur
poses. Daily News Subscribers.

A Queer Marine Animal
Is the Dugong or Sea Cow.
Photo by JTmerican Museum of Natural
The American Museum of Nntural
History, New York city, recently in
stalled as a new exhibit a specimen of
a dugong, or sea cow. lu general ap
pearance tlie dugong resembles the fa
miliar seal, but lias no hair on the
body and is more nearly related to the
porpoises and whales; nevertheless it i
a warm blooded animal. The present
specimen is nearly seven feet long anil
is the only one of its kind known to be
preserved in any museum of the west
This animal is found on the shores
of the Indian ocean, fifteen degrees
on each side of the equator, from East
Africa to Australia, and also in the
Red sea. It is a marine animal which
never ascends the rivers, its food con
sisting chiefly of seaweed and the
alible found in the water. Years atro if

allow itself to be touched with the
hand of man.
The flesh of the young dugong has
teen compared with pork, beef and
veal, but the old animals are tougher
and not so highly prized. The skin Is
smooth and thick; the upfK-r lip is
large and thick and covers prominent
incisors, forming a kind of snout,
something like the trunk of an elephant
cut short across. The eyes are very

Cause of Freckles.
Are you freckled? Those little brown
spots we call freckles are seen on the
skins of some people, especially after
they have been exposed to the sun. If
you went to the country the past sum
mer or played out of doors a great deal
you probably have freckles.
Freckles come on the hands nnd face
because those parts of the skin are uu
protected by clothes. Some people
have more freckles than others. For
some people the freckles disappear In
a short time, while they 6tay on others
for a long time.
The freckles are the result of the
sun's action on cells of the skin, which
cause those cells to produce coloring
matter which remains there, for a time.

Desire to Confer With
SERBS HOLD BABUNA PASS
London, Nov. 17. The Greek gov
ernment appears to be adopting a less
uncompi omising attitude, says the
Athens correspondent of Reuter's Tel
egram company. It is believed to be
Keeking a satisfactory solution of th
question as to its attitude toward al

n the Greek territory, although it
hesitates to make a declaration in the
form demanded by the entente pow
ers. The correspondent says King Con
stantine has expressed a desire to see
Larl Kitchener, the British secretary
of war, who is now in the Near East,
and discuss the situation with him
from a military standpoint.
The diplomatic corps has gone from
Monastir to Fiorina, just across the
border in northern Greece.

A dispatch from Reuter's corre

Rome, Nov. Id. (Via Paris, Nov.
17.) The following official statement
was issued today at the headquarters
of the Italian general staff :
"In the Adige valley during the
morning of the fourteenth we enlarg
ed and straightened the position we
occupy on the steep hill which slopes
down from Zugnatora towards Rov
ereto on the left bank of the Teno de
Vallersa torrent. The enemy imme
diately opened a violent artillery fire
from Monte Ghella and launched an
infantry attack, but was repulsed. In
the Pado'.a valley enemy detachments
trying to approach our positions were
beaten off, leaving a number of pris
rners in our hands.
"In the Fella valley one of our de
tachments met enemy troops near Lu
sora which were attacked and dis
persed, the enemy abandoning rifle.?
and ammunition in his flight.
"On the Carso plateau yesterday
there was an intense artillery duel.
The enemy's artillery fired all day
against positions recently occupied by
us, without preventing our reinfodce
ments from coming up. In the Monte
San Michele zone the enemy made two
violent successive attacks in force on
cur line, but each time was stopped by
the rapid and accurate fire of our ar
tillery and finally had to retreat with
Bulgars in Tetovo.
