The tirs section above at the left shows
the condition cf a Firestone S3xii Cord
Tire cfier 2D,94 miles on a Yellow Cab
in Chicago.
The section at the right was cut from
a new Cord of the same sice. Careful
measurements show that only 13 of the
tread cf the tire on the Yelicw Cab has
been worn away after this long, gruelling
test. The carcass is intact after more
than 11,000,000 revolutions.
Firestone Cords have averaged over
10,000 miles on Chicago Yellow Cabs
(1,200 cabs all Fire
stone equipped). In
thousands of in
stances, they have
given from 15,000 to
S0.000 miles.

Look at the tread
scientifically angled
against skid, massive
and heavy in the center where the wear
comes, tapered at trie edges to ma&s
steering easy and to protect the carcass
against . destructive hinging action of
high tread edges. The carcass is air bag
expanded to insure uniform tension and
paralleling of every individual cord. It
is double "gum dipped" to make sure
that each cord is thoroughly insulated
with rubber.
This is the . reason why Firestone
Cords unfailingly deliver extraordinary
mileage. It explains the unanimous de
mand of thoughtful - -
tire buyers for these
values. The local
Firestone dealer will
continue to provide
the personal service
that makes Firestone
tire comfort and econ
s orny complete;. '

As Well as General Public Invited
to Join in Gala Occasion that
Will be For Everyone.
When the morning of June 14th
dawns there will be a general move
ment of the members of the Modern
Woodmen in Cass county, as well as
the members of their families toward
the city, of Plattsmouth and the big
picnic -that Cas3 camp No. 332 is pre
paring for that date.
It ,has been a number of years
since the Woodmen have held one of
their log-rollings or picnics and they
feel that it is time that the follow
ers of Woodcraft over the county
gather and have at least one day of
real fraternal spirit, with their fam
ilies and friends joining in the oc
casion. The result of the desire of
the members of the order, is the fact
that this occasion will be held on
Wednesday, June 14th at Platts
mouth. Tho gathering will be held in the
city park and will embrace a pro
gram extensive enough for the en
tire day and will cover everything
that the desire of man could demand
in the way of entertainment, amuse
ment or refreshment.
County Judge A. J. Beeson is the
chairman of the executive commit
tee and has a force of hard-working
committees that are arranging a real
program for the day. In the line of
sports there will be races of all kinds
with suitable prizes for the men,
women, girls and boys, fat and lean
and every other kind and condition
of the human race. One of the fea
tures of the athletic program will be
the tug pf war from among the
Woodmen and in the evening tho
victorious team will pull the team
from the Burlington shops.
Dr. Sloccumbi state lecturer of the
order, will speak at the picnic and
his well known reputation as a
speaker guarantees that this depart
ment of the rrogram will be well
looked after.
There will be two of the crack
drill teams of the order from Omaha
and Lincoln present at the picnic
that will give a number of highly
entertaining drills and these teams
will also stage an open air public
initiation and take, a. tip, this is go
ing to be one of the best things that
has been pulled off , here for a great
many years.
All those attending the picnic are
urged to .bring . their dinner with
them and prepare for a real day of
sport for every member of the fam
ily from the old man down, and not
only the Woodmen and their families
but the general public as well is in
vited to join in and make the day a
record-breaker in every way.
Edgar Barker, cf Perry, Oklahoma,
Finds Misfortune Never Comes
Except in Bunches.
Grant Wetenkamp of this city has
received a letter from Edgar Barker
of Perry, Oklahoma, a former resi
dent of this vicinity where he made
his home on the William Wetenkamp
farm near this city, and who moved
to Oklahoma nine years ago.
In his letter,. Mr. Barker tells of
a very severe wind, hail and rain
storm that swept over that portion
of the, country, destroying wheat,
oats and fruits. The corn wag badly
beat up by the force of the storm,
but will come out of the ordeal much
better than the other crops and little
damage to this crop is expected.
Mr. Barker states that never in
the history of that country has there
been such rain and hail. The force
of the hail broke the window lights
and the rain drove Into the home
until water stood . three and four
inches deep on the floors and the
members of the Barker family suffer
ed the greatest Inconvenience from
the effects of the storm. Neighbors
of the Barkers had their bedding
soaked in the storm and -were forced
to spend the time standing around,
unable to secure any rest. In the
residences and places of business at
Lucerne, a small town a few miles
away, there is not a window light
Owing to the shortage of glass
and the inability of the dealers to
secure a sufficient supply for the de
mand, there is more or less annoy
ance felt by the residents of that
part of Oklahoma.
Mr. Barker had his barn blown
down in the storm to add to the other
losses, but was fortunate in having
this covered with insurance, but the
loss to the crops is complete, as he
carried no hall insurance whatever.
