From Thursday's Dally.
According to imotScial reports" of
.authentic inception, the War depart
ment is contemplating a $3,000,000
expenditure at Fort Omaha in the
near future in the way of a mid
continent ' dirigible station and oth
er' improvements about the post.
High officials from the east have
been In conference with the com
manding officer. 1-t. Col. Wuest ami
they have viewed a tract of land to
the south of Fort street and ex
tending to the river, a distance of
fcunie three miles.
linofficial reports have been cur
rent for tome time that the War de
partment has been considering t!
co-ordination of all balloon activi
ties of the army at Fort Omaha, and
also the designation of the fort as
a central station for dirigibles..
Government chemical experts have
only recently developed " a helium
gas. which is noninflamable and i3
,to be used exclusively by the gov
crnmett in its dirigibles. The use
of such a gas would do away with
such accideuts as that occurring at
Chicago Monday when the bag of a
large blimp exploded.
Col. C. Dj Chandler, chief of the
balloon and airship bureau, who was
the most prominent oThcial out from
the east, is Fauguine that trans-';
continental dirigible trips will bo!
an everyday event before long.
Fort Omaha already has been an
nounced as the great central train
ing station for balloonists of thoi
Sophia Seivers. They left here for
Fan:o. ". Dak. and visited for- a
while with another daughter of Mr,
Seivers. Mrs. William Hegland and
whom many Plattsmouth people will
remember. Mr. Solvers says that
the countrv arouud Fargo is very
beautiful and that the wheat is still
green. He also says that there are
hi:r fields of ootatoes such as we
would have corn, being forty or
fifty acres in extent.
From Fargo they went to Drain
ard, Minn., where they enjoyed an
other pleasant stay. After being
cone about two weeks he returned
to find that the court house lawn
had grown up In weeds. Mr. Seiv
ers got right to work on it however
and even now quite an improvement
can be seen. In a few days with his
able care It will look as good as ev
er. Mr. Seivers looks better how
ever and as If his trip had 4 been of
much benefit to him.
WENT TO MEET HUSBAND.
From Thursday's Patty. -
Mrs. Ed. Spies had a, smiling face
as she boarded the train for Omaha
this nfternoon and the reason for
the smile was worth while as she
had received a telegram from her
husband that he would meet her in
Omaha this afternoon. Ed has been
in France for a year now and about
a week ago landed in New York. At
that time Mrs. Spies received a wire
from him telling her of his safe ar
rival. He was sent to Washington
and from there was discharged and
hurried home as fast as possible. lie
will be in this evening.
BACK FROM TRIP.
From Friday's Dally.
This morning we were glad to
see that Sheriff C. 1. Quinton and
family had returned from the out
ing which they have been enjoying
for a little over two weeks.
Two weeks ago all of the family
started out in their car pleasure
bound. Turning their car -westward
they made for Colorado and
the cooling breezes of the Rockies.
They went as far west as llolyoke
and had a fine trip every foot of the
way. While gone they saw in one
county al;ot traveling overland the
Philpot family and at another place
the family of Judge Deeson. They
report both families as having a
fine trip and as looking as if they
were enjoying themselves to the ut-
array. and its additional importance . most Sheriff Quinton looks as if
as a dirigible station is believed tj t!,e (rip lirl nlm a world of good

NAD A VERY NICE TRIP.
From Thursday's la!ly.
Hans Seivers, the custodian of
the court house has just returned
from a line outing which he had the
pleasure to enjoy. Mr. Seivers has
bco'u gone for two weeks and was
accompanied by his daughter Miss
Frnm Thursday's Iaily.
Last night at the library a called
meeting was held at which the new
library board was organized. The
following officers were elected: Miss
Vcrna Leonard, president; Miss Mia
tiering, secretary; A. G. Cole, vice
The report from the librarian
shewed that the patronage had in
creased over last. year. This too, in
rpiic of the fact that the hooka in
foreign languages were ordered to
be taken from the shelves by a state
law tOithat effect. This is very en-
viiir.n2inir to the librarian and to
the library board. It is to be hoped
that the public library will-continue
to grow at the same rate.

HAVING TROUBLE WITH TEETH
From Friday's Dally.
Earl .Travis has been having to
make" a; good many trips to Omaha
lately ' as he has been ' bothered
a great - deal ' by his wisdom teeth.
They have never come through
properly and for some time has suf
fered with pains that run down the
cords .ot his" neck. It was . discov
ered upon examination that- the
wisdom-rteeth were in bad condition
and probably was the cause of the
trouble; They, will have to be cdt out
from ' the, gums 'and -this will be
quite a delicate operation.

WHAT IS A FAIR RATE
FOR TELEPHONE SERVICE?
Telephone rates are based on the cost of jurnlshinn service.
To furnish the required grade of service it js essential that our
telephone plant should be well constructed, properly maintained and
efficiently operated. "
Telephone rates have to be high enough (i) to get efficient em
ployees and experts and pay them as good wages as would Ik pi d
elsewhere for equal skill; (2) to pay taxes; (3- to rebuild or re
place parts of the property when worn out or when it becomes obso
lete, and (4-'-to pay such a dividend to our present stockholders a-
will enable us to obtain the money necessary for making extensions
and improvements required by the public.
The public would suffer by a low rate that did not meet these
conditions. If we do not make enough money to hire efficient ami
sufficient help the public suffers from poor service; it we do ii''
make enough to invite new capital to invest in our property the pub
lic suffers because needed extensions and improvements arc not
We feel sure it is for the; public's best interests that our rates
ire high enough to pay our employees fair wages, to give goJ ser
vice, and to pav a fair return on the money invested, so that nr
'msincss may attract new money, which we need constantly for ad
ditional equipment to take care of present and proactive patron.
