PAYS TO SEE THE PADLOCK
Nebraska Farmer la Buncoed Out of
Ills Money by Three
C. H. Fowler, a farmer from Arcadia,
Neb., realized last evening that there was
considerable truth In the axiom that ex
perience teaches. It cost him Just $28 to
see the glass works and become acquainted
with the mysteries of the padlock bunco
game. Fowler was waiting at Ninth and
Douglas streets for a Council Bluffs motor
when a stranger entered into conversation
with him. The stranger was also watltug
for a car and auggested that while waiting
they take a walk across the bridge and look
at the glass works. It would be on their
way, he explained. Fowler had read about
glass works, but had never seen one. He
Near the east end of the bridge the
stranger picked uo a padlock and then
Fowler began to get some experience. They
were Joined by a second stranger and Fow
ler was accumulating experience. Then
came the climax. A third stranger appeared
on the acene. He was a policeman and
wore a star. He placed all three under
arrest. Fowler did not like" the Idea of
being arrested, so was perfectly willing to
give the policeman all the money he had,
$28, to secure the release of himself and
his two newly made friends, who appeared
to be equally frightened.
As soon ae the money was In the hands
of the policeman Fowler's two companions
had buainess elsewhere, aa had the man
with the star, and Fowler waa left alone to
admire the scenery at the east end of the
bridge and with an empty pocketbook. It
finally dawned on him that perhaps he had
been buncoed, ao to make certain he walked
Into Council Bluffs and told his story to
the police. He later returned to Omaha on
car ticket provided him by Captain
Oravel roofing, A. H. Read, Ml Broadway.

IGNORE BUILDING ORDINANCE
Contractors and Others Almost I'nl-
versally Neleet to Take Ont
The city authorities have decided to rig
idly enforce the ordinance relative to build
ing permits and all persons will be re
quired to secure a permit before either
erecting any building or making repairs
Contractors and others have to a great ex
tent Ignored the ordinance and comparison
between the number of buildings now in
course of construction throughout the city
and the records of tha city clerk show a
Fire Chief Templetoa and Chief of Police
Tlbblts have been instructed to at once
check up the number of buildings now in
course of construction or which have been
erected since the beglnntcg of this year
and report back to the c'.ty authorities In
order that it may be ascertained which per
mits have been issued for.
The fee for a building ptrmlt no matter
what the cost of the building may be. Is
merely a nominal one, bC centa, and the
permits are more for the purpose of ensb
ling the city to have a record of what
building la being done, especially within
the Are limits, than for tiie revenue which
might be derived. The ordinance provides
that failure to take out a building permit
ahall subject the person building to a fine
not exceeding $100.
City offlclMa who have given the matter
some attention lately assert that from $50,
000 to $100,000 worth of building Is now

TEACHERS MUST PAY DEBTS
Board of Education Incorporates that
Clause In Contract of All
All employes of the school district, and
this applies equally to teachers and Jani
tors, will be required to pay their debts
promptly or else lose their positions. This
requirement will be incorporated In the
contracts which they will be called upon
to sign this year. This waa decided upon
at the meeting of the Board of Education
last night, the matter being ( brought up
by Member Macrae, who stated that com
plaint had been made to him that a num
ber of the teachers and the Janitors re
fused to pay their Just debts after secur
ing credit on the strength of their employ
ment in the schools.
Member Hess protested against the In
sertion of any such clause In the contracts
on the grounds that In his opinion it was
casting a slur on the teachers. While there
might be, he said, a few teachers who were
not prompt In paying their bills, he believed
it was rather the exceptto nthan the rule,
Macrae's motion carried despite Hess' pro
Member Macrae also brought up again
the question of dispensing with a supervisor
of kldergartene. He auggested that the
principals In each building be required to
acquaint themselves with that class of
work so to be able to give personal super
vision to the kindergartens In their respec
tive buildings. He spoke at lengths on the
subject and suggested that during the com
ing school year the principals be made
acquainted with the kindergarten work by
the supervisor, so that a year from now
the services of a general supervisor for the
kindergarten can be dispensed with. The
board discussed the question for fully an
hour, but took no action. Superintendent
Clifford reported that a balance of $46.45
remained over from the proceeds of sale
of tickets for the commencement exercises
after all expenses had been liquidated, and
permission was given to place the money
to the credit of the High school library

of Corning, Judge Dewey of Washington,
Judge Church of Jefferson, Judge Weaver of
Iowa Falls and Judge Bishop of Des Moines

became evident Cummins would be nomi
nated for governor, and Church waa not
atrong. Dewey haa been eliminated aa a
possibility by defeat for renomlnatlon as

age in Iowa. The formal transfer had
scarcely been made until the heavy rains
swelled the streams In this part of the
state to such an extent that the bridges
of the road at Washburn, Vinton, LaPorte
nd every bridge on the Iowa Falls division
were washed out. It will require between
$50,000 and $100,000 to replace the damage
done by the floods.
The main line has Inaugurated regular
service, but the branch line Is still some
what crippled. The new ateel bridge at
