CHANGES IN BUSINESS
LOCATIOINS OH LOWER MAIN
From Saturdays Dart.
Today was the starting of a num
ber of changes in the business loca
tion of the firms on lower Main street,
as Peter Claus is transferring his fur
niture and outfitting store from the
old stand in the building just east of
the court house to the room in the
Redmen building, one door east, where
he will be ready for business in a few
days. The location made vacant by
Mr. Claus will be occupied by W. R.

building, as had been first intended.
J, S. OSBORN, NORTH
OF UNION, BREAKS
HIS RIGHT LEG
J. S. Osborn, living just west and
a little north of town, had his right
leg broken just below the knee Mon
day while sawing a tree at the Keil
place south of Union. Mr. Osborn was
cutting saw logs in company with Mr.
Russell, and it seems as though the
tree that caused the trouble lodged in
another trees near-by and when Mr.
Osborn went up the other tree to saw
eff a limb that held the sawed tree, the
limb slid toward Mr. Osborn, breaking
his leg and throwing him out at the
same time, badly bruising him over
his body. Mr. Russell came very near
getting his when the axe which Mr.
Osborn had in the tree with him, fell
near where he was standing. Mr.
Osborn is getting along as well as
could be expected. Union Ledger.

Will Be Established, Employing
If Plans Materalize Another Industry
From Friday's Dally.
It would se?m that another industry
is soon to be located in this city, if
the plans of the promoter, Mr. Proc
tor, materialize, and it will bring a
factory that should be capable of em
ploying quite a large number of men.
This gentleman, who has been here
quite frequently in the past few years,
has been engaged in introducing and
selling metal collapsable auto garages
and ether articles in this line, and his
mission here at present is to hnve a
number of articles manufactured at
the Weste'-n Machine & Foundry Co.,
as this company can turn out as good
work as any in this part of the coun
try. Mr. Pioctor has perfected a
metal shingle which is pronounced ore
of the best on the market and the de
mand for it in the east has been quite
extensive and wherever it has been
used it ha- been a great success.
Mr. Proctor feels that this city of
fers an ideal place-for the location of
a manufacturing plant of this kin 1,
as the facilities for hipping are a.;
good as could possibly be desired, and
if it is possible for him to carry out
his plans, his factory will be located
in this city where it is easier toi handle
a business of this kind than it would
be in a larger cty.
If a few factories of this nature
could be located in this city it would
prove a mighty big boost in the w; y
cf the advancement of the community
and bring an increase in the industrb.l
life of the city.

MANY AUTO OWNERS
FAILED TO SECURE
LICENSES FOR 1916
Throughout the state there has been
quite a numler of the automobile
owners who have failed to secure their
lil( licenses or have failed to display
new number plates on their cars and
any of these are now liable to stop
ped when runinjr on the streets with
their machines. These state licenses
cost only $.' and the auto owner who
is operating under the old license num
ber is running an unnecessary risk.
The new number places are blue this
year and easy to distinguish from the
old ones, and anyone trying to use
them is liable to be nibbed up, as the
owner is the .name as one not having
Miy license at all and liable to the
penalty of the law.
Here in Cass county the applications
must be sent in to the state treasurer
and the numbers sent from that office
to the auto owner, while in Douglas
county the numbers are sent to the
county treasurer and by him given out
to the owners. Those who have fail
ed to comply with the law should get
busy and see that their licenses are
brought up to date and not take the
chances of being caught up under the
law. The penalty for using an auto
mobile without a license is ?50, and
greater liabilities are thrown around
the driver of such a machine in case
