First Educaitonal The bring

realize the enormous tax of bad
roads on the city people as well

of our cities as well as of the
country ought to be inspired to
willingly pay the price cf Good

23 cents a ton per mile If these ual work of location and con-
roads were improved he estimates
the cost would be reduced to less
than 12 cents per ton per mile
This would mean a saving to Ne
braska approximately 150000 J
000 per year Admit that it is
not practicable to save the- total
amount as estimated One thing
is positively sure and that is a
great saving can be made thru
improved roads
Ninety per oent of all the in
ternal commerce of our nation
which exceeds the foreign com
merce of the wocld must be haul
ed over our public roads and the
cost of hauling is 23 cents per
ton per mile as compareel with
ton cents per ton per mile in
France Germany Belgium Eng
land With improved roads it is
possibl eto liaul larger loads anel
to shorten the time required of
haul to the market
To obtain Good Roads in Ne
braska we must like other pro
gressive movements approach by
degrees It may be briefly stated
there are three steps of develop-
struetion as well as maintenance
can be elone onlv through some
Jorm of state aiel or supervision
Eternl vdgiilnaace is the price for
keeping roads to their highest ef

To my own satisfaction I had solv

When we took refuge in a hotel dur
ing the renovation of our hown house
I said Hundreds for legitimate ex
penses but not one cent for graft
From the moment we struck the hotel
sidewalk I adhered valiantly to that
policy In vain did waiters cabmen
and porters extend an itching palm
and importune with hungry glances
I resolutely kept my hand out of my
pocket with results astonishing even
to myself Instead of the neglect that
had been prophesied as inevitable
servants embarrassed us with lavish
attentions I grew vainglorious See
I crowed That is the way to man
age these fellows Just make them
understand that you dont intend to
tip and they will give you decent
service without it If everybody
would pursue that policy the tip evil
would soon be abolished

The president smiled How much

And what is his name
John E Brown sir
The president whispered to his
stenographer and then patting the
youngster on the head he said Run
on home Youll find the doctor there
on your arrival
And the upshot was concluded
Dr Marden that John E Brown re
covered and the company escaped a
probable loss of 2500 The boy I
need hardly add had acted entirely on
his pwn initiative Is it any wonder
he is now a millionaire

Amends Bill
Congressman Norris Tuesday ir
trodueed an amended bill for tak
ing the postoffiee department otit
of politics The measure contains
two important changes First it
provides that the postmaster gen
eral rather than the president
shall appoint presidential post
masters to be chosen from the
cavil service list subject to all
civil service regulations second
that the postmaster general shall
be appointed for a term of ten
years and be not subject to re
nioval eeept for cause Mr Nor
ris issued a statement that he
fears his former bill might be
unconstitutional in taking- the
appointing power from the pres
ident without placing it in the
hands of someone eiso He furth
er said
I think it is a vast improve
ment as in the first bill I made
no attempt to change the partisar
aspect of the office of postmaster
general I am satisfied that this
change will add materially to the
efficiency of the law Lincoln
