CITIZENS OF ELJtfWOCD UNITE
TO PLACE FARM PRODUCTS
ON CITY MARKETS.
WILL OPERATE TRUCK LINES
Eetween Ehnwood and Lincoln and
Omaha, Handling; and Sell
ins Products En Route
-From Friday's Dally.
Just now there is being filed in
the office of the county clerk .u"
t'aas county and in the state offices
at Lincoln, articles of incorporation
covering the establishment of a bus
iness at Elmwood. having for its ob
ject the transporting; of freight
and from Elmword and r-urroundiiis
territory, to the adjacent markets of
this trade territory.
The incorporators of the institu
tion are L. F. Langhorst. J. M. Nec
ley and I. C. Monger, all of Elm
wood. These g ntlemen have beer,
engaged in the transportation busi
ness to a more or less extent for
some time past, but as individuals
only. Now. with the forming of
the corporation, they will be in a
position to take pood care of an".
and all business that may come th
- kf f rn
wav. They will make a specialty of
1 live-ring farm product?., and espec
ially heavy stock shipments, to the
city markets, and to further in
crease the earning capacity of their
business will endeavor to carry a
load of merchandise for the local
merchants on the return trip.
It is proposed to operate trucks
between Omaha and E'mwoofl and
Lincoln and Khnwood on a regular
time schedule. thereby providing
the means of delivery of farm pro
ducts to the city.
About th only thing needed to
make the truck wonderfully success -lul
in transportation is macadamiz
ed r paved highways. And these
are an improvement that may reas
onably be looked forward to within
the next decade. "
We trust the new corporation wil!
make u success of their venture and
le kft busy looking after the trans
portation needs of Cass county.

From FrUlayi I 'ally.
The humanitarian value of the
plan of Regional Director Holden to
institute a "NO ACCIllKNT WEKK"
among all railroad employees of the
central western region commencing

the Fafety organization of the rail
road administration had become
completely insrailed on the federal
controlled ro;rls in the central west
ern region, his report shows ninety
less killed and eleven hundred and
fifteen les injured than during the
co: responding period tf 1 9 1 S . These
fi:,ur-s include enly employes and
do not take into account the very
material reduction to trespassers
and others killed or injured.
It is the purpose cf Mr. Holden.
through the safety organizations in
this region, to demonstrate by "NO
ACCIDENT WEEK." that this great
economic loss of rife and service f
trained industrial worker? c:m lr
materially reduced, and to this end
three hundred and five thousand
(:!0").000) railroad employes in the
central western region have taken
the pledge to do their bt"t tp work
these seven days without getting
hurt themselves, or being the ca'.ise
cf another's injury.
This plan was tried out by two of
the regions during January and
February with such signal success
that regional director Holden decid
ed to extend "XO ACCIDENT
WEEK" to all railroads under fed
eral control in the central -western
region. The psychological effect on
the' railroad workers it is believed
will give great impetus to the move
ment and thereby benefit the rail
road service and the public.
THE CHAUTAUQUA .THIS YEAR.
From FrlclaVs Daily.
It's by the same company which

those who were interested enough
to attend last year have an idea of

pearance last year w;is before the
fourth of July and ending with that
day, while the one this year will
not be until July 20th to July Hist
inculsive said days, beginning on
Saturday .and ending the following
Thursday. To make this a success
which it merits there should be
the proper committees in the field
Ijy this time, with the advertising,
and other matters which should
be looked after before the time for
the Chautauqua, or we will not have
the success which, it is possible to
obtain from it. Better get after the

It is the aim of the committee in
charge to stage one of the biggest.
if not the biggest, celebration Ne
braska City ever pulled off, and to
this end neither pains or expense are
being spared to make it a success.
Among other attractions will be

Earl M. Cline, lately returned from
the war zone, where he all but diei

From Friday's Dally.
The Unrleson schedule of long dis

by an injunction brought by Ne
braska, along with numerous other

fective ngain'tonight at miduiebt.
The I!ur!e-on schedule has appli-1
to all interstate calls since the tin'..
it was first put in effe-ct.
Among other things the schedule
provides for numerous classifications
of service some of which are more
costly and others much less so than
under tolls heretofore exi.-ting. Tw

"Station-to-Siation" and the "Party-to-Party"

tulation on toll charges. Then. to.
there is the- day, the evenii!.- and
the night rate, with their varying
schedules of tariff that would re
quire a Philadelphia lawyer t fig
ure them out.
It is doubtful if the new schedule
of rates will lie productive of n-ucu
if any more revenue to the company
than those now in effect, bat it will
help to stabali;.e the load of verb..!

over the long distance- wires of the
country, and cut down the "p"ik
