Senator Epperson of Fairfield Pre
sents Matter to Auto Association
Other News at Capital.
The teaching of road building in the
schools of the state as a means to
ward education of those who would
iu later years take more interest in
this than has the present generation,
was advocated to the State Automo
bile association in Lincoln by C. H.
Epperson of Fairfield, former state
"Our future road overseers, county
officials, legislators and governors ure
growing up within our reach,” said
Mr. Epperson, "and why should we
not begin by teaching them the things
that will help them solve the prob
lems of the future. The present gen
eration has only opened up the way—
more remains to be learned and still
more to be done. Improvement can
only begin where entire communities
are united in the work and where they
are desirous of aiding other commun
ities in completing good roads, with
every other section to accomplish
lasting results. There can be no bet
ter way toward partially solving the
problem than by rearing children who
are in sympathy with the move and
who understand most of its phases.”
Senator Epperson has a bill provid
ing for the instruction suggested and
it is likely that this will become a
part of the road law's' legislation
which will be introduced at the com
ing session of the state's lawmakers.
The greater part of the time of one
day's session was given over to a dis
cussion of proposed road legislation.
A bill looking to the creation of a

"The duties of the commission shall
be to investigate and carry on exper

reau of biological survey, is arranging

reports that fences are being built to
keep them enclosed. Mr. Gilbert gave
the animals to the government with
the understanding that they should

The Great State of Nebraska la Near
the Top.
The cackle of the Nebraska hen has
been immortalized in verse and het
deeds of performance have been made
subject matter for legislative report*
in years gone by—and well it might.
For, according to a statement Just is
sued by the Nebraska department of
agriculture the value of poultry prod
ucts for the year 1911 exceeded $43,
000,000, an exceptionally strong show
ing when it is taken into considers:
tion that the value of all such prod
ucts in the entire United States was
$750,000,000. While exact statistics
are difficult to obtain from all the
states it is believed Nebraska ranks
well up toward the top. Says the agri
cultural department’s report:
“That the poultry of Nebraska is cf
some importance is verified by the
fact that the assessment Of hens re
turned by the county assessors in
1910 is over four times as much as
all the diamonds found in the state,
half as much as all the pianos, ten
times as much as as all the cash re
gisters, nine times as much as all the
safes, and $112,000 more than ail the
steam engines.
“The helpful hen is one of the
prime factors in reducing the high
cost of living; the family with a few
dozen hens well kept, need not worry
about the meat problem. The busy
biddies of Nebraska are hustling her
gr»eat herds of swine for first place
in importance of the marketable
products of the state.
“Nebraska hens laid so many more
eggs last year than the hens of Kan
sas that a Nebraska hen could lay
one egg a day until she had enough to
hatch a brood of chickens, sit on the
eggs, hatch the chickens and then
overtake the Kansas hen with a sec
ond brood before the Kansas biddy
had done clucking over her first brood
of chicks.
"But Nebraska hens do not have to
hatch eggs; they can put in their
time laying, for Nebraska factories
make annually one-half of all the in
cubators manufactured in the United
States and Canada. These incubators
are sent by carloads all over the civil
ized world, and fluffy chicks by the
millions belt the globe as a tribute to
the maternal industry which has its
headquarters in Nebraska.
wnite NeDrasKa is selling its vast
amount of poultry products annually,
the great state of Oregon is buying
three million dollars worth from Ne
braska and other states. The state
superintendent of public instruction in
Oregon is endeavoring to enlist the
school children in the problem of can
celling this deficit by having every
child in the schools of Oregon be
tween the ages of 6 and 16 keep a
dozen hens. If Nebraska school chil
dren were to do that they would make
Nebraska the greatest poultry market
in the world.”
State Highway Commission.
The State Automobile association,
which held the opening session of its
annual meeting here, went on record
as favoring the creation of a state
highway commission atid the appro
priation of such money as would ac
crue from half a mill levy to aid in
the movement for better roads. Mr. G.
E. Parisoe of Minden declared that
Nebraska farmers now pay an average
of sixteen cents per ton per mile to
transport their goods in and out of
Requisition for Cheeks.
Governor Aldrich has issued a re
quisition for the Veturn of Gus Cheeks,
arrested at Omaha, to Des Moines,
where he is wanted on a charge of
robbery. He is accused of having
“held up” one H. P. Dolan, on October
31, and securing a gold watch and $40.
Wesleyan Presidents to Meet.
More than 100 presidents of Wes
leyan schools and colleges in the
United States will gather in Lincoln
early next year, making an epoch in
the Nebraska history of Methodism.
New State Buildings.
Several of the state institutions
will have new buildings provided for
in the appropriations made by the
coming legislature if the plans now
being arranged by interested parties
are given the approval of the law
makers. The following list shows the
contemplated building to be done
within the next two years: Ortho
pedio hospital, $110,000; Pru normal
school, $75,000; Wayne normal school
$85,000; Chadron normal school,
$75,000; Girls’ Industrial school,
$15,000; and Grand Island Soldiers'
home, $10,000.
Wait on Legislature.
The board of public lands and
buildings, after lengthy discussion of
the advisability of creating a deficit
by furnishing the two new buildings
at the Lincoln asylum, decided not
to take this step until the legislature
meets in January. The buildings are
practically completed, but a total cost
of $24,000 must be entailed to connect
them with the asylum heating and
lighting plant and for the required
furnishings for the structures.
Diphtheria at Ponca.
As the result of the visit of State
Health Inspector Wilson to Ponca,
five families in that town are undei
quaraantine for diphtheria and orders
have been issued that every school
child be vaccinated at once. The in
spector advised that no public meet
ings, including church services, be
held until the situation improves. One
hundred persons in the town are said
to be affected by the disease. While
most of the cases are of a mild type,
a few have been severe and it has
been thought best to take no chances.
Official Pluralities.
With official figures at hand from
every county in the state excepting
Douglas county, the plurality of Nor
ris over Shallenberger for United
States senator is closely estimated at
14,000. The official vote on governor
shows Mr. Morehead will have a plu
rality over Governor Aldrich slightly
under 10,000. In ninety-one counties
the total official vote as shown in the
office of the secretary of Btate is:
Senator—Norris, 111,847; Shallenber
ger, 98,944. Governor—Morehead, 108,
569;'Aldrich, 102,944.
