wit and humor to such an extent
that it will keen the audience in
laughter from start to finish. The
subject matter and concrete exam

him and characteristic of his own
peculiar style, so if you would get

Mr. Briggs himself, who does not
borrow from some one else in order
to deliver to the public.

Making Changes in Shop
L. II. Fuls is making some defi
nite changes in his working depart
ment, which is for the betterment
of the service at his garage. He has
just recently added a new 20-inch
Weaver press, which will aid great
ly in doing the work that comes to
his place. In addition to this he is
installing a large drill press and is
lining up all the machinery, having
just moved the large lathe so it can
be operated off the 40 foot counter
shaft he is installing to convey pow
er to all parts of the workshop. The
emery wheel has also been moved to
a more convenient position where it
will be sufficiently well lighted to
enable the operator to do a good job
of polishing or grinding. All this
machinery will be operated by a five
horse power motor which he is in
stalling. "When the work is conclud
ed the shop will be the equal of any
in Omaha in point of handiness and
compact working space. Mr. Puis be
lieves in being up to date as is evi
denced by the installation of such
a large amount of new machinery.

AEROPLANE FLIES OVER CITY.
Time was when the appearance
of an aeroplane in the sky would
draw every man, woman and child
in the country but of these latter
days the airship has but litlc at
traction out of the ordinary. Yes
terday afternoon one of the human
birds flew over the city, going east
ward and traveling at such a height
that it was impossible to clearly
disinguish the machine or the bird
man. Whether or not it was a mem
ber of the trans-continental party or
not is not known, but the ship was
traveling in a straight steady flight
for the east.
