kase Similar to
One Mad ere
A number of months ago, Mr.'L,
Hansen of this city was sued by tiie
I'nion Pacilic for a few dollars’ differ
ence In fare on a couple of round trip
tickets to the Pacific Coast, which lie
had paid for, used and returned home
to engage in the laudable purpose of
recuperating his bank account. The
company claimed the way lie was
routed the fare was insufficient in tiie
sum of eight dollars and a fraction.
And tiie worst of it was that Louie
was stuck. Now comes a somewhat
similar case at Central City, and will
probably result tiie same, showing un
der the beauties of the inter
state commerce law that when you
buy a routing over the railroads you
have no mortal cinch against having
to dig up more rhino later to appease
and vindicate tiie law, tiie agent who
routes you and takes the alleged cor
rect fare not being tiie court of last
resort by a jugful. Here is the Cen
tral City episode as taken from the
Nonpareil of last week:
One of tiie strangest suits that has
been filed in the county court forsome
t ime was listed lor settlement before
Judge Petersen tiffs week The Bur
lington railway company wants Carl
Itudolph to pay it $16.80. Mr. Ru
dolph refuses and thinks lie has good
Four years ago, Mr. Rudolph and
wife took a trip to Buffalo, N. Y.
They bought their tickets over tiie
Burlington. They paid Agent Welsh
.90 each or $71.80 for tiie two. On
tiie return tin they were informed by
one of the conductors that they had
not paid enougli for the tickets and
lie callected an additional $16.80. Af
ter they got home the company re
funded the amount, stating that an
error had been made. That was tiie
last they heard of it until a few weeks
ago when lie received a statement
from the company for the amount.
Naturally, lie refused to pay it and
tiie company has now broughtsuit for
its collection. In its petition the
company claims tiiat tiie regular rate
from Central Oily to Buffalo at the
time the tickets were sold was $44.30,
and that Mr. Rudolph should have
paid $88.60, instead of $71.80.
The Burlington is not altogether to
hi me for its attempt to make collec
tion of the amount, as tiie interstate
commerce commission holds that
transactions of this kind are a viola
tion of the anti-discrimination provi
sion of tiie law. There are a number
of interesting wrinkles to the suit,
however, and its outcome will he
awaited with interest. Tiie Burling
ton is represented by F. A. Bald, and
Mr: lJMBisfrtttsretained H. F. r.llen.
Radiator Didn’t
Radiate Homeward
It may be none of our business, but
Will Zimmerman has great throbs of
our sympathy, just the same. Last
week Wednesday Will went down to
l’almer to drive home his auto which
had been becalmed there, when he
took a bevy of Loup City girls to en
joy a day’s visit with Mrs.Thos. Dins
dale and came home by the keers.
Leaving that distresing linale as not
germane to this tale of woe, we radi
ate to this story of a radiator that
didn't radiate enough. Reaching the
little city of Palmer, Will boarded his
car and hiked for home, reaching St.
Paul ahead of schedule time. As he
whirled through that saintly city lie
sighted the motor pulling out and
concluded to “beat it” home. Man
proposes but auto disposes, some
times. Upon reaching a point midway
between Dannebrog and Boelus the
auto acquired that “tired feeling“and
proved a “quitter.” Feeling of the
pulse and a diagnose proved a frozen
radiator complication. A walk of
three miles, to a farm house, a dose
of several gallons of hot water, and
Dr. Zim had his patient convalescent.
Again near Austin, so near and yet so
far from home, Old Boreas got
busy. Hot-footing, e“steamed” aqua'
nothing could persuade Reo to go on
The telephone, however, brought one
of Will Schuman’s cars and relief, and
though O. B. tried its wand and near
ly got the latter, it was able to wheeze
in on one lung, trailing the refractory
car behind. Time 1:30a. m.: mercury
10 below. And yet Will tried to get
us to go with him after the carl Gee
whiz! Wern’t we lucky? /
Charley Bennett
in Auto Wreck
By the Lewiston (Idaho)' Tribune,
we see thatfCharley Bennett, former
ly of this city, son of Mr. and Mrs. A.
M. Bennett, was one of a party of
of young men of Lewiston who were
mixed up in an auto accident in that
city on Dec. 8th, in which two were
seriously hurt, while Charley and an
other companion escaped with a few
minor bruises. The party was return
ing from a visit to a live stock show
near the city at a lively rate when the
car skidded into a an embankment
with such force that one wheel was
torn off and the body of the car was
thrown in the opposite direction re
sulting in the w reck of another wheel
and the occupants permitted to take
involuntary aerial somersaults thro’
the air to Mother Earth. It was not
thought any fatalities might result.
The many friends of our former Loup
City boy will be glad he escaped so

Circular SaW
Last Thursday afternoon about 3
o'clock, as Ed. 1‘adclitfe was engaged
in ripping out some quarter-inch
strips at his planing mili witli a cir
cular saw, his left hand in some man
ner came in contact with the teeth of
the saw, tearing the flesh from the
three larger Angers, the middle one
being stripped from the bone. He at
once went to the office of the Drs.
Bowman, where they dressed the in
jured hand and Ed went away rejoic
ing that the accident had not result
ed more seriously. As Ed had on a pair
of gloves while at work, it is thought
the glove on the injured hand must
have caught in the teeth of the saw,
although the whole thing was done so
quickly neither he nor Ollie Howard,
who was also present, were able to
say how it happened.
Gregg Guilty of
Technical Wrong
Last week the Northwestern pub
lished the story of the case of Dr.
Gregg, veterinarian of Litchfleld, who
at the instance of Assistant State
(Veterinarian Norden was hauled be
for the county court, pleaded guilty
of error and was Aned $25. The story
was published just as given us by Dr.
Norden, and w hile correct as to com
plaint and result, yet, according to
the other side of the story, does not
deal justly with the facts in that
Dr. Gregg is a reputable veterinarion,
who has a diploma as such from the
leading veterinary college of Canada,
situated in London, Ontario. His
error consisted in advertising as a vet
erinarian with college degree without
having passed the state examination.
Insofar as that he pleaded guilty and
paid the tine, but as to qualilications
as a veterinarian does not admit play
ing second Addle to even the repre
sentative of the prosecuting end of
the state association himself.

Farmer Burns
Still Champion
Farmer Burns is still the champion
stick puller of the state, if not of the
world. Pete Ryestorf, a
youth from Shelby, backed by a num
ber of farmers from Gresham and vi
cinity, challenged the veteran wrest
ler for a go, and something like $2,000
was hung up to back the proposition.
> The pulling stunt was pulled off in
South Omaha last Thursday and old
i Farmer Burns won easily. Burns
i himself took a goodly part of the
money. He is past 93 yean old now.
Mail Uerk Miller
Draws a Light
Jail Sentence
Rudolph H. Miller, who was caught
rilling the mails on this branch a few
mouths' since, later confessing guilt,
was at Lincoln last Friday sentenced
by Judge Monger of the federal court
to serve three months in the county
jail at Hastings, Neb. Miller made a
heart-broken plea for U-niency and
was backed by strong sentiment from
leading men of the state, which pre
vailed, his age of 56 years, ids most
excellent family, the short period of
his stealings, his former good reputa
tion, etc., being taken into acccount.
Miller was foimerly a minister of the
gospel and grand master of Nebraska
Odd Fellows. He had been in the
postal service 23 years. It will always
be a mystery to the thousands of his
friends how he, the last one they
would ever have suspected, should
have been guilty of the crime.
