Bad Time to Sell
Bonds Says Furay
Asserts Bonds Should Have Been Sold
' Witli Money Available
"The Board of Education could not have
picked out a more Inopportune time to
sell the tVl.X Issue of school bonds If It
had tried." declared Frank Furay. county
and city treasurer. Wednesday morning
"Just why the board wanta to sell these
bonds now Is beyond all comprehension.
says Furay. ''At the present time the
money market Is tighter than it will be
at any time thla summer. Then the board
will not be able to uae any of the money
until late in the year.
"So the school district will lose !t'4 per
cent Interest on the bends for perhapa a
half year. These bonds draw 4't per cent
interval. When the school board gets the I
money, the funds will be deposited In some
local bank, where only 1 per cent la paid
"The bonds should have been sold under
the conditions that the court house bonds
were disposed of. These were sold with the
understanding that the bonda could be
cashed as the money waa needed. In this
way the county saved a good amount . In

who Is fathering the scheme, were In
structed to formulate plans for the Inno
vation. "The cost will be a minor consideration,"
declared Mr. Craig. "The city has plenty
of rock for the hoboes to Work on. All that
we need Is a location. There are three
tracts of land near the asphalt plant, at
Eleventh and Nicholas streets, which can
be rented for a nominal num. This de
partment will furnlNh the rock and haul
it away after It is crushed.
'We can use It In our paving. When
Tenth street is repaved, the city will have
enough rock to run the place for a con
siderable length of time.
"The expense of Installing the rock pile
will be small. We ahall have to buy a
few hammers and erect a fence around
the grounds. This expenditure can be au
thorized by resolution and the city will
get the money back In a short time."
Councilman Hummel and Phcldon have
declalred themselves opposed to a rock
pile. Both state that It la not needed and
declare they will oppose any movements
to establish one.

Goat Business Gets
Three Fine Fleeces
Affable, Oily Gent Takes Change
from Prospective Fanners
An affable and unidentified goat farmer
captured three handsome gnats' of a
cnh value of 1:15 on a Missouri I'aulfle
(mill approaching Omaha Tuesday.
.nioke curled from three coh pipes In a
smoking compartment of a train. The
pipes protruded from the Hps of Jack and
Fied Mason and Alfred Cantrell, who were
leaving their homes in T xas county, Mis
souri, for the place where their rainbow
ended In Wyoming.
An affable man entered the car when
the smoke was thickest. He told of a goat
ranch In Wyoming; told tiiat he was going
to stop off at Omaha and purchase five
carloads of goats from the stock yards;
that he was going to ship the goats to his
ranch; that he needed men to Irelp him.
The members of the trio named their own
salaries and verbally contracted for the
jobs. The stranger had a check for SI, 200
he could not cash. He needed ready money.
The three squeezed their pockets and gave
him $.16 all they had. He was to have
met them later when the goata would be
herded Into the five cars and sent to Wyo
. ming. Hut he didn't.
