Steel Cars for Safety .
Railroads have been surprisingly
slow In adopting all-steel passenger
and mail cars, but now the more pro
gressive lines have taken the first step,
the time is probably not far off when
their ubo will be general.
The Harriman railroads are taking
the lead in this, as they have done in
so many of the most modern improve
ments In transportation. They have
just placed an order for 42 4 steel pas
senger coaches, which, when delivered,
will give that system a total of 023
cars of this type, placing it ahead of
the Pennsylvania lines by twenty-five
The all-steel car should rapidly be
placed in use, not only for passengers,
but for mall and baggage, for its abil
ity to withstand fire and the Impacts
of collisions makes it the safest means
of travel and transportation for human
beings and valuables. No matter what
the extra cost of the steel car may be.

ine Allltzhauser when she learned that her
husband, from whom she had been
separated for twenty-five years, had Just
inherited $00,000 through the death of his
father, all of which explains the suit

Allltzhauser recently In the supreme court

When the case came up before Judge
O'Gorman,' that official Immediately fol
lowed his usual policy of endpavorlng to
bring the litigants together whenever pos
sible, thereby making a happy ending to
the divorce action.
It required but a hint of what the alterna
tive might be to the defendant to make the
latter think seriously of the suggestion
and even that was emphasized when Judge
O'Gorman granted Mrs. Allltzhauser
monthly allowance of $100 and postponed
further hearing indefinitely In tho hop of
a reconciliation between the two people.
Judge O'Gorman Is Inclined to tho belief
that the separation suit of the Allltx-

Kearney Hub: The Nebraska bankers
assembled the other day at Hastings re
solved again against the postal savings
bank proposition and petitioned the con
gressman from Nebraska to vote against
the bill ln the house. That they will bolt
their party platform Is not probable. Nor
would they dare to.
Papllllon Republican: In his speech at the
graduating exercises Governor Shallenber
ger made an attempt to ridicule President
Taft because of his extensive traveling.
Those who live ln glass houses should not
throw stones. The governor must remem

to defray his traveling expenses for a
period of fourteen months while his pred
ecessor expended but $848 ln twenty-four
months for the same purpose.
wood ttiver interests: Our supreme
court has unequivocally declared that the
railroads of Nebraska cannot swap trans-.
pcrtatlon for advertising space. The court
holds that "the standard measure possible
In order to Insure absolute uniformity In
the charges Is money." The notion the
railroads have had that they could not
pay cash for their advertising service the
same as other business men has been
wrong and It Is well our supreme court
has clearly pointed out the error of their

Lincoln does not possess enterprise enough
to have people talk either good or bad about
It. When that town loses the capltol, they

Grand Island Independent: Dr. Greene,
formerly superintendent of the Nebraska
Insane asylum of Lincoln, in a recent ad
dress, declared that tha lawa of this state,
with reference to its public institutions,
are about the most antiquated In the coun
try. Which reminds. us of another demo
cratic promise unfilled. The party pledged
that it would put at least some of the
state Institutions ln the hands of a board
on lines making efficiency, rather than
party, the basis of appointment to and re
tention In office. The promise waa good
enough to "get ln on," but no attention
waa ever paid to it after that.

There Is no time like the old time, when
you and I were young.
When the buds of April blossomed and
tho birda of springtime sung!
The garden's brightest glories by summer
suns are nursed,
But, oh, the sweet, sweet violets, tho
flowers that opened first!
There is no place like the old place, when
you and I were born,
Where we lifted first our eyelids on tha
splendors of the morn
From the milk-white breast that warmed
us, from tha clinging arms that bore,
Where the dear eyes glistened o'er us that
will look on us po more!
There Is no friend Ilka the old friend, who
has shared our morning days,
No greeting like his welcome, no homage
ilka bis praise ;
Kama Is tha scentless sunflower, with
gaudy harp of gold;
But friendship Is tha breathing rose, with
sweets in every fold.
There is no love like the old love, Uiat
w courted In our prlda;
Though our leaves are falling, falling, and
we're fading side by side.
There are blossoms all around us with the
colors of the dawn.
And we live in borrowed sunshine when
the day star is withdrawn.
There are no times like the old times; they
shall never be forgot!
There la no place like the old place keep
green the dear old spot!
There are no friends like the old friends
may heaven prolong their lives;
There are no loves like the old loves God
blesa our loving wives!
