The tax commissioner has prepared a

' The Father of his Country concealed a

in vogue, to conceal thinned hair or bald

NEW NAME FOR THE ELKHORN
Ittratka Road Will Fraha-bly Be
Known aa tha Colons; at
According to General Manager Bldwell of
the Fremont, Elkhorn A Missouri Valley
railroad, the name ct that line will be
changed as a result of tha recent absorp
tion by the Chicago Northwestern rail
way. Mr. Bldwell has yet received abso
lutely do ordera to this effect, nor any an
nouncement of any kind relating to tha
change, but he expects such a more.
"The name of the tine probably will be
changed," said Mr. Bldwell.' "That means
the reletterlr.g of the cars, new stationery,
blanks, transportation evidences, advertis
ing. In fact, numberless alterations will
be necessitated by the change of name. I
have no notion when It will begin, nor have
I been notified that It will take place, but
It probably Trill be done."
Speculation Is rampant In railroad circles
and especially around Elkhorn headquar
ters as to what the new name will be. It
Is agreed tbat all evidences of the present
lengthy title will be abolished. But the
question Is, Will the new name to be used
be "The Northwestern System" or "The
Chicago & Northwestern railway" or any
other of a number of possibilities. If the
Identity of the Elkhorn road li to be en
tlrely lost In that of the parent atem the
name probably will be simply an extension
of the present "Chicago ft Northwestern
railway." This was done In the case of
the Sioux City ft Pacific-, which when ab
sorbed a short tlmo ago merely lost Its
Identity and became a part of the road, and
baa not slnco been known apart from It.
But the Ploux City ft Faciflc was in no
way differentiated from the rest of the
road ir location, while the Elkhorn Is dis
tinctly apart from the Northwestern proper,
being across the Missouri river. - Other
railroad systems have Invariably followed
the plan of keeping their lines east and
west of the Missouri separate both In name
and In reality. There Is the Chicago, Bur
llngton ft Qulnoy east of the river and the
B. 4 M. west. And when the Rock Island
acquired Ita line west of the river they
were named the "Chicago, Rock Island ft
Pacific lines west of the Missouri river,
This title, still obtains.

Done with Brldsjre Bolld
County Commissioner O'Keetfe went to
Lincoln yesterday to give a boost to
the bill to have county engineers make
Inspection of all bridge sites and report on
the same before any constructing is under
taken and to have work done by contract
when cheapest. He said: '
"I understand that there Is an effort
being made to defeat thla bill and pass on
allowing county boards to do as they please
about building bridges, regardless of what
such structures will cost if done by day
labor and regardless also of any advice the
county engineer might be able to give. I
am going down to the capltol to see Just
bow the thing stands."

Complete Absorption of Elkhorn
Road by the Chleaa-e at
The first Indication of the complete ab
sorption of the Fremont, Elkhorn Mis
souri Valley railroad by the Chlongo ft
Northwestern system and the removal of
all managerial power to Chlcaro comes In
connection with the present campaign of
the conductor and trainmen of the west
for certain concessions from their roods.
The general committee of the Orler of
Railway Conductors and iV-j Brotherhood
of Railway Trainman, fwhlah expected to
settle lta affairs with 'General Manager
Bldwell after the conclusion of matters
with the Gould lines In Bt. Louis, now
loarna that It will bo combined with the
Chicago ft Northwestern general commit
tee of the two orders and will with that
body meet the management of the North
western system In Chicago soon.
Although the Union Pacific general com
mittee here has assembled ready for aoMcn,
the Elkhorn. committee has not yet keen
called together. Chairman Ward and Sec
retary Richards are still In Omaha, bat
they will not call In their committee mem

Grand officers of tbe Order of Railway
Conductors and the Brotherhood of Rail
way Trainmen have left St. Louis, where
they have been engaged In superintending
the conferences with the managements of
the Gould lines, asking for concessions to

Having obtained their . ends with the
Gould lines, they have gone to Topeka,
Kan., to begin work with the management
of the Santa Fe system. After cleaning
up all that territory the head officials will
go to Chicago and take the railroads with
headquarters there. Thus they will gradu
ally oover the entire territory of the as
sociation. This order of business results from a
new plan Just adopted, by whloh the
process of scouring the concessions from
all the fifty-two roads -of the association
Is to be made consecutive, Instead of
simultaneous, as at first. planned. Thus the
two grand officers who are In charge of
the matter can give their personal atten

TESTING CONFISCATION LAW
Sportsmen at Albion Don't Believe
Their Gnns Can Be Seised
Tbe state game and fish law is being
tested out at Albion, Neb., by parties who
do not believe that that section which pro
vides for the confiscation of arms or neta
will be held by the courts to be constitu
tional. Two guns were confiscated and
either have been or are to be aold. The
sportsmen who owned them are suing to
recover possession, and the fight haa de
veloped Into a test of the confiscation pc-
vlslon. Attorney Lysle I. Abbott of Omaha
has been called to Albion to assist the
county attorney in the defense.
A Serious Mistake.
To tbe average man it seems childish to
doctor a cold, and unless it becomes par-
I tlcularly annoying to him little or no atten
, tion is given It. Often a cold contracted In
the winter Is allowed to run until the open
j Ing of spring. This Is a grave mistake, as
j even though the warm weather may bring
1 relief, the system Is thereby weakened and
rendered susceptible to disease. A cold
should never be neglected, whether It be a
child or an adult who la afflicted, as health
and often life Is risked. A bottle of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy, costing but a small
amount, will bring speedy relief and all
dangerous consequences will be avoided.
