Prom Wednesday's paily.
We were agreeable surprised when
yesterday afternoon one of the for
mer paper carriers of this oHice
walked into our santum, and stretcli
ing out his right hand, grasped ours
with a grip like a blacksmith's vice.
;Mid greeted us
while v e gues
with a kindly smile,
ed who he was. We
could hardly believe the gallant
young soldier, an athlete and while
a large brawny man full of Ameri
can jcp and life, his kindness and
gentleness was a portion of the boy's
character who are fighting for the
freedom of the we. rid. such was our
greeting from Don McF.ride. He is
with the Marines, and had a short
furlough, and is visiting his folks at
South Omaha and ran dov.n to see
his many boyhood friends here. He
has been with the Marines for over
a year now. and is cine of the best in
ihe service. "Coodie" as he was
known by. when he carried the
Journal, could not go by the Jour
nal, but must come in and see how
we all looked. He will return to
his station at Philadelphia soon.
THE TJ. S. DEPARTMENT OF AG
RICULTURE IS SHOWING VIEWS
-AT THE STATE FAIR.
The state fair as on of the fea
tures, which the government is giv
ing, is the throwing upon the
screen the building of roads in this
state, taking even from the selec
tion of the stone in the quarry, and
going through all the process of the
preparing the materials, and the
construction of the roads, and later
their use and how the best meth
ods used, stand up under the con
stant use of heavy traffic. We
wonder if it would not be a good
idea for some one living around
this city and in this county to go
take a glimpse at the process and
see the results of 'Heal ltoadmaking'
for we are hearing a great deal
about the roads between here and
LaPIatte. We are now just in the
entering of a new era, on the Ihresh
hold as it were, when the roads of
the country are in part are going to
fake care of the traffic which the
railways are now failing to do. Pet
tor when you are at the state fair go
see these pictures, and make a spec
ial trip there to see them as well.

is in a hard retreat from the wide

our men who are pressing their pur

There are great possibilities of

would shenv some kind of strength
and come back to us with the grim
endeavor to retrieve losses. That
did not happen. What did happen
was the steady forward movement of
our men all through the darkness of

more gains and everywhere the ene
