From Saturday's Pally.
For some time Dast there have
leen more or less rumors afloat that
we need not expect a better condi
tion of the Washington Highway
passing through Sarpy county, ow
ing to the fact that-the state and
federal road aids would do nothing
to a highway leading tip to a toll
bridge. This has been the means of
casting considerable gloom over the
Omaha travel uassine this way. for
it is true that the road has been in
a verv poor condition this spring
with very little care taken in the
war maintenance. From out of the
darkness now comes a gleam of light,

communications received from the

Re: Washington Highwa:
Dear Sir:
In answer to your letter of the
ISfh i list . regarding the above high
wya south from Omaha. I have in
structed the Division Engineer to
take this matter up with the County
Highway Commissioner and see that
this road is put in proper condition
and also properly maintained.
The reason that the heavy grad
ing crew was taken off the road was
due to the fact that we expected to
award contract to reduce the grades
the entire length of the road in
Sarpy county, but owing to the pres
ent price and also to the fact that it
will be necessary to isue state war
rants and register the same. I do not
believe we will award the contract
on this work this season. However,
the same is in line and will lie con
tracted along with the first contracts
let by this department. In the
meantime, will see that the road is
properly taken care of.
Yours truly,

then put a patrol gang on it to keep

Owing to the fact that Sarpy
county has but very little money in
her Maintenance Fund, difficulties
have arisen in the proper mainten
ance of roads. However, we think
this will not occur again In the fu

the crew will remain at work until
the road is placed in proper condi
tion right up to the bridge, which
is certainly good news to all.
There never was a time when the
road leading from Plattsmouth to
the Platta river bridge was in such
excellent condition as now. County
Highway Commissioner Yallery has
sure been getting in some excellent
work on this side, and we will all
hail the day when we can say as

During oil the years the Ford Ivlodel T One Ton Truck has been on the mar-.
bet, we have never had one complaint of rear nxle trouble. We have had no
complaints of motor trouble. As the motor and the rear ale are the vital funda
mentals in a motor truck, we have the right to conclude that the Ford One Ton
Truck has not only met the demands of business, but has done so in a satisfactory"
end economic way. There is no other evidence so convincing as that which
comes from long practical experience. Ford One Ton Trucks axe serving alon
ell industrial and corrimercial lines. You will find them everywhere. If these
:ments were not facts, the demand for the Ford One Ton Truck would not
as large as it is, because p-jople arc not buying trucks which do not give
service. Coupled with the dependability of the Ford One Ton I ruck m all classes
of usage, comes the economy ia operation and maintenance. On the farm, in.

This is particularly true of headache.
Headache often results from consti
