LINCOLN, April 23 (Special.) A. V.
Johnson, state f.ra warden, has written a
li tter to Stat Superintendent Bishop iui
geatlng that a day or an hour of aome day
e.ioh month be et aside for tha teachera
tt Instruct their pupila about how to
prevent flrea and what to do In aome
L-ergenclea. It la Mr. Johnson's Idea that
jr tha children are taught the dangaroue
uaa of gasoline and keroaano and what to
do In case of explosion, as well aa how to
prevent flrea by keeping refuse burned
and the danger of pt-rmttting old papera

the lessons now learned will remain with
Mr. Johnaon gave out the following state

lr,r the prevention of fire waste desire, to
direct public attention to the
asW-rral cleanup during the spring time,
ix-lul that hns accumulated during the
winter montha should be tnoroughly cleared
away. The reasons for thli i are obvious,
one which miKht be mentioned la that tnia
debris la often responsible for spontaneous
combustion, which, more prevalent during
the hot Bummer montha than during the
colder period, la generally regarded i by ex
perienced fire flgntera aa one of the chief
cauaea of what are called ' unknown flrea.
Too often houses are built without giving
proper consideration to attlo ventilation;
the hot summer sun beata on the roof, the
heat In the attlo become Intense and with
the attlo f lUed with rubblah, dust, oily
lugs, highly varnlshfd piece of furniture
or other accumulations spontaneous com
bustion Is a natural result.
Closets are often used for storing away
rreasy overalls, old clothes and oUy rags;
f... .hmiM he thoroughly cleaned
and hla la particularly true of the closet
under the stairway, which la too often per
muted to become a fire trap Immediately
under the only way of escape from the

This la the season for varnishing and
painting, hence old raga uaed for wiping
Kreasy wood and varnished aurfacaa should
be bunted; If they must be saved for
future uae they ahould be kept In an Iron

We desire to suggest that when people

efforts to have property ownera and tenants

waste may be avoided.
Burglar Gets Bnay.
, Someone attempted to enter the office
of Attorney General Thompson last night
and the lock on, the door showed up this
morning badly disfigured, indicating that
someone had tried to bore through It.
Sometime ago Mr. Thompson had In his
safe some evidence to be used against the
-Burlington railroad In a suit to force.
.complianoe with, the law to prevent the
'sale of llaiior on' trains, but it is not gen-
orally believed that Lineolit la dry enough
-to drive anyone to rob a. safo to get a
So Mr. Thompson Insists that ho ha no
Idea, what anyone would want to take
from the office unless his opinions have
Wimi so valuable that men. are ready
i Yiurrlarv to get one. - and this
may be what the burglars wanted.
When Norrls Brown was attorney gen
eral he sent to Judge Sinclair a copy of
his opinions bound. In a few days the
book was returned with a letter from
Jdde Sinclair, saying the publication was
very valuable and inasmuch as he had no
safe In which to keep it he requested that
the volume be locked In the safe In the
office of the attorney general. The bur
glar may have wanted that book.
Model Submitted la Foil.
Danlef C. French, who has a. contract
to construct the Lincoln monument, to be
located on th grounds of.the state nouse.
has written to F. M. Hall that he will
not submit the model until next fall. Mr.
French said In his letter that the model
had been completed, but that he Is shortly
leaving ' for Europe and therefore he de
sires to look over It again before sending
It to Nebraska. He believes after an ab
sence of a few months he will be more
able to say whether the model la up to
the standard he dealres to set oy mis
work. He Informed Mr. Hall that he ex
pected to make this monument his best
work If possible. . ' . ;
The supreme court today - modified to a
cerWin extent an opinion recently handed
own regarding the Royal Highlanders. In
that 'decision It was held that the edicts
adopted In 1906 were nil and void Insofar
as they "related to the plaintiff. The lodge
ask(d the court to modify Its opinion so
as to decide that the amendments to tha
edicts of 1906 gave the order a representa
tive form of government. The court re
fused to do this, holding that Its former
opinion was simply In the case filed and
had nothing to do with the status of the
order at this time. The court withdrew
Its criticism of the order, expressed In Its
former opinion and said It had no knowl
edge that the lodge had not areprescnta-
tlve form of government at this time. It
said It Is entirely unbiased In the matter
and would not pass on this question until
the matter Is before It In regular form.
The court adhered to Its former opinion
'as to what a representative form of govern
mcnt I as expressed In Lange agalnat the
Royal Highlanders. The order asked that
government more particularly.
Petitioners Not Responsible.
The supreme court has held that the Per
son who algna a petition for a liquor license
Is not responsible for costs In lawsuits
that may follow an appeal from the Issu
ance of the licenses. The caae came from
Otoe county, where one Bernard Carls se
cured a license to run a saloon at Dunbar.
A remonstrance was filed with the village
board and overruled. The remonstratora
appealed to the district court and the vil
lage board was reveraed and the coats of
the appeal taxed to the petitioners.
The petitioners hsd not been notified of
th suits and were not represented by coun
sel. They brought suit In equity to pre
vent the officers from collecting the costa
of the suit. The remonstratora filed a
demurrage to the petition and aet up that
the petitioners should have moved to retax
the coata. The petitioners won out In the
district court and today the supreme court
affirmed that decision. The court went
further and said the petitioners were In no
way responsible and could not be made
parties to the suit.
Mlaaonrl PaclMo Loses.
Maggie Wollenburg, who won a damaga
ult agalnat the Missouri Pacific in the
lstrict court of Douglas county, after hav
ing been tossed some sixty-five feet by an
nglne, won out also In the supreme court.
Justice Barnes dissented and argued that
the woman had contrlhi- accident

Attempt to Fly
Graham White Forced to Descend by
Storm After Making: 115 Miles
in Farman Biplane.
LONDON. April 23. Graham White, the
English aviator who .started this morning
on a biplane flight from Wormwood
Scrubs. London, for Manchester, in an at
tempt to win- the prise of S50.000 offered by
a morning newspaper, had accomplished
mors than half of the Journey when com-
pellod to descend on account of the Intense
cold. He hoped, however, to completers
flight this afternoon.
The distance between London and Man
chester Is 1S6 miles, and under the trms
of the prise only two 'descents are per
mitted. White used a Farman biplane. Ha
reached Rugby, the first stopping place,
in two hours, and after an hour's rest, re
ascended, intending to fly to Crewe, where
he had arranged to mako hla second
detcent. A few miles north of Rugby ths
aviator encouhtered a cold north wind and,
after completing 115 miles of the trip, he
was compelled to alight. Today there was
a sudden change from warm to wintry
weather and, unless the wind moderates, It
Is doubtful whether the aviator can com
plete his flight In one day as required. Tha
leg from London to Rugby Is eighty-five
Dakota Zephyr Derails Train.
ABERDEEN, S. D., April 23.-Speclal )
An unusual Instance of the strength of
the Dakota sephyrs Is given by the local
representatives of the Milwaukee railroad,
who asrert that the derailment of a train
on that line near Hagus, N. D., was caused
by tha wind blowing the tender to the
engine from the track. Ths first theory
of the accident was that the rails spread,
but an Investigation proved this to be
erroneous, and the only plausible theory
ths railroad men havs is that ths tender,
which was loaded with aeveral tons of coa ,
was blown from ths rails by the breese.
