Omaha Enterprise Gets Advertising
Equal to Great Expositions.
RAHEOADS ASE ALL IN LUTE
Bl; Transportation Companies Will
Give It Same Support They Did
St. Loo Is, Portland and
' Jamestown Fairs.
By bringing the National Corn exposi
tion to the attention of American railroad
president and passenger traffic managers
the executive committee of the big Corn
show to be held in Omaha next December
has secured practically the same recogni
tion vfor the latest of Omaha enterprises
as the railroads gave to such expositions
as those held at St. Louis, Portland and
Here are some of the things which the
railroad managements are going to do to
bring people to Omaha and promote the
movement or more and better corn:
Each road will detail a special traveling
passenger agent, who will be a lecturer,
to boost the National Corn exposition at
Chautauquas, state fairs, county fairs,
slock shows and carnivals, and also make
all arrangements for parties and special
train of students who will visit the corn
Seven railroads are to put out booklets
and pamphlets and give space In fhelr time
table folders telling of the big agricul
tural show at Omaha.
All roads are to give the exposition a
page or two in all time tables which are
used In the west and sent to the eastern
In all Display Ada for Month.
For four weeks previous to the opening
of the Corn show in Omaha the Milwau
kee St. Paul, Illinois Central, North
western, Burlington, Rock Island and
Union Paclfio road will devote mot of
their display advertising spacs in the
country weekly and dally papers to adver
tisements for the National Corn exposition.
Besides these definite arrangement for
advertising the exposition, the tariffs and
notice of the show will go through all the
organisation of the railroad companies of
the east and west.
Everett Buckingham of the committee
on tranbportatlon, and C. C. Rosewater,
chairman of the executive committee of
the National Corn exposition, have re
turned from Chicago, where they talked
with many railroad officials.
President J. T. Harahan of the Illinois
Central told General Passenger Agent
Hatch of his road that the Illinois Central
exposition a real Illinois Central proposi
tion for the summer and that too much
time could not be devoted to It.
P. S. Eustls, passenger traffic manager of
the Burlington, had an idea when he was
approached on the subject.
"Why, that show means that if the yield
of corn In Nebraska Is Increased a few
bushels to the acre It will add S2S.O3O00)
to the wealth of Nebraskk each year. The
man who does not get a part of the 125,000,
00u each fall will be tne one who does not
go to the corn show and learn how he can
increase the yield of his farms. Of course,
the Burlington will want a modest slice
of the 126,000.000 and we will do everything
we can for the show at Omaha."
Campaign of Publicity.
Equally aa encouraging waa the Inter
view with Vice President Biddle of the
Rock Island lines. He Instructed the ad
vertising department to begin at once tha
campaign of publicity for the corn show.
Mr. Hal Ray, advertising manager, will be
in Omaha next week to get In close touch
with the exposition.
F. A. Miller, general passenger agent of
the Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, an 1

vertising which they said they would do
when the movement for the show at Omaha
was first started.

Rosewater. "More corn means more traf

every farmer to have more surplus grain
and more fat cattle. The roads have kept
their word In every particular and have
shown their friendly attitude toward

On Sunday morning the people of Omaha
will have a chance to observe a par.lal
eclipse of the aun. It will begin eir.y
enough to get folka up In time for break
fast and the firat services at church. Rev.
William J. Rlgge. S. J., professor of as
tronomy at Crelghton university, writes
thus concerning the eclipse:
The eclipse of the sun has long ago
been scheduled to begin at Omaha on
Sunday morning, June 28, at 8:26 o'clock.
At the northern border of Nebraska the
time will be 8:30, and at the southern about
8:23. For Iowa the time will vary from
8:34 to 8:25.
The present eclipse Is visible all, over the
United States. Its magnitude varies con
siderably. In the stste of Washington
it is only about 10 per cent, that is, only
one-tenth of the sun's diameter is obscured,
whereas In Florida It la T per cent. It
would be total In Florida if the moon hap
pened to be nearer the earth at the time
than It actually la. Aa the facta want It,
the moon and aun are at auoh distances
from the earth, that the moon appears to
be a little smaller than the sun, so that
when centrally placed before It it lsnot
able to obscure the whole sun, but leaves a
r-arrow ring of light visible all around It.
For this reason the eclipse is called an
annular or ring eclipse. This ring eclipse
ia visible in tha United State only along
belt about eighty-five miles wide In
Florida. It la well worth a Journey of
many miles to see. Scientifically, however,
an annular eclipse is not of much value,
since It require a truly total eclipse to
show the sun's magrif4cent corona, such
a was visible in the United Stales for tho
last time cn May 28. 1X. and will not be
visible again within our border until
June 8. 1918. ten years from now.
In Omaha the magnitude of the eclipse
will be 6o per cent, and the sun will have
the appearance as indicated in the figure.
The upper circle repressers the sun with
Us cardinal points, north, south, east, west.
The middle of the three lower circles with
j Its center a trifle to the left of the point.
J south, represeuts tbe moon at 8.31, when it at the tune
Is eclipsing, SO per cent of the sun' diam
The eclipse begins at 8:26 a. m., as has
been said before. At tha Creighton uni
versity obseivalory the computed moment
is 8 o'clock, 26 minutes, 12 seconds. At
this Instant the moon occupies the positlou
shown by the right of the three lower
circles on the diagram. The paper must
then be held in such a way that the point,
"T" on the sun is on top. The point of
first contact where the moon first in
dents the sun is 7& degrees from the point,
"T" to the right. The position of this
point is of the greatest importance when
the beginning of the eclipse is to be ob
served with great accuracy.
The moon pursues the path marked 8, t.
10, 11. In the diagram, these numbers de
noting the position of its center at 8, 9, 10,
11 oclock and at eery ten minutes between
them. In order to know how the sun will
appear at ar.y moment, we need but draw
a circle of the sise of the moon, center
il on its patn at any moment, and see
!.ow it covers the sun. We must then
hold the diagram with the point "T" on top
at the beginning of the eclipse, and the
point "O" un top at its end, and some in
termediate point orj top during the course
of tho eclipse.
The eclipse ends at the observatory at
li o'clock, t minutes, i reconds. For the
state, tha time of ending will be 10:12 at
its western . border to about 10:59 or 11:03
at its eastern, and for Lo. between 111)
The magnitude of the eclipse Is 38 per
cent 4t the northwest corner of Nebraska,
and M per cent at its southeast corner. For
lows, tt is between 44 and Mi per ctr.t. .
A a excellent way to observe the eclipse
will be to punch a hole through a largu
piece it cardboard and catch the resulting
image of the sun on a piece of white psper.
