OF UNCLE SAM.
TWO HAND IN RESIGNATIONS
Herman Hough and Miles Allen, Car
riers on Routes 1 and 2 to
Quit at an Early Date.
From Saturday's Dally.
The rural carriers out of this city
havt? decided to sever their connec
tion with the government service and
accordingly have tendered their
resignation to Postmaster 1). C.
Morgan. The reason given by the
carriers for their quiting is that the
wages are not adequate to the high
prices demanded for living and also
the condition of the roads over
which they are compelled to travel.
Uoth carriers have had a great deal
of difficulty in getting over their
route" owing to the rough and un
settled conditions of the roads and
which by reason of damages to their
wagons and autos eats a large hole
in the monthly salary received for
their labor. , Both Mr. Alien and
Mr. Hough have been compelled to
have frequent repairs made to their
automobiles and wagons as the re
sult of having tq travel over the
very bad road and they feel that
with this condition prevailing they
cannot make a living at the Job and
desire to seek employment else
where. Both men have been very
proficient at their work and their
patrons along the routes will regret
very much to learn that they have
decided to quite the mail service. So
far there has been no attempt made
to fill the vacancies but efforts will
be made at once to secure competent
men to take up the work and see
that' the patrons rocelre their mall
although anyone will find . the pres
ent condition of the roads makes
travel over the routes anything but
JULIUS KALASEK .
MEETS WITH ACCIDENT
' We print everything but mone
and butter. Ix-t us serve you.
From Thursday's Daily.
Julius Kalasek. one or, the em
ployes at the Burlington steel car
shop met with a very painful exper
ience jesterday afternoon while he
was engaged in his work and one
that will necessitate his laying off
from his duties for a few days.
Julius was engaged in helping push
a steel car from the shop out onto
the track in th? shop yards and a?
the car was being shoved through
the door of the thop. the unfortunate
young man was caught between the
side of the door frame and the car
with tho result that he was badly
bruised before being rescued by his
fellow workmen. Julius was at
once placed on a rubble car by his
companions and brought to the Uur
lington station and from where he
was taken to the office of the com
pany surgeon where his injuries
were looked after.' An examination
failed to reveal any broken bones
and it is thought that the young
man has not sustained any internal
injuries although his bruises were
quite severe and will make it neces
sary for him to remain at home for
a few days until he is able to re
cover from the effects of the accident.
