On the Streng-th of Promisee He Hai
Many Free Kidee and Caihee
A supposed cattleman from Thermopolis,
Wyo., has scored a record for being ths
"Mtamplon "wise guy among the taxlcab
drivers In Omaha. The manner In which
W. R. Baird "soaksd" ths wise ones when
ha cams to town would fill a page in a
funny man's book.
Almost two weeks ago Mr. Balrd came to
town and after lording It around ths swsll
hotels got Jack W. Wolf, a chauffeur for
the Her Grand Taxi company, on bla staff.
Several merry rides were taken In ths taxi
and Mr. Balrd told Chautfsur Wolf about
tha good time they wars going to have
when he sold five carolads of cattle that
ha had 'consigned to- himself at ths South
Omaha yards. -.
Pending ths arrival of ths cattle ths taxi
was kspt en ths movs night and day. Fi
nally Wolf became anxious and after sev
eral runs to South Omaha, where the cattle
never came, suggested that Balrd question
tbs railroads, This was done with a vigor
ous demand for an explanation why Baird'g
cattle had not arrived on tha market. Aa
tha railroads could not find any advloes
sbout ths shipment Balrd was told ths
live stock waa not la sight.
It was the that Wolf began to get
"hep." He had already advanced SS on a
check for liar drawn by Balrd on ths City
National bank to ths order of Wolf. When
Wolf went tu the bank with the check ths
isiier looked at him and said Qn away."
men tna chauffeur got real busy and
had Balrd arrested. Detectives Dunn and
mwg took the "cattleman" to the nolle
station July I and he Is there yet, charged
with being a suspicious eha aeter. Rir4
has a happy, faculty of not saying much,
although when questioned he laughingly la
slats that his cattls are coining.

Poaltry Food Firm May Now Operate
ta Kansas Wltaoat Paying
Tavx mm Each Brand.
Manufacturers ot proprietary products
ware much Interested In a report received
Wednesday to tha effect that tha Kansas
statute Imposing a tax on aach different
brand of food for poultry and stock has
been declared unconstitutional by ths cir
cuit court of ths United States In Kansas.
The esse waa one In which tha George
H. Dee company of Omaha has contested
the validity of the act. Tha law Imposed
a tax of Io0 on each brand put out by this
company as poultry or stock food. Ths
Dee company refused to pay the tax, and
the suit was taken to the courts mors
than a year ago.
Ths outcome of the suit Is considered
of far reaching Importanoa to manufac
turers insofar as many states have passed
laws Imposing similar taxes on manufac
tured brands. A law 11 ks ths one in Kan
sas waa recently passed by the South Da
kota legislature, and tha opinion Is that
ths Kansas esse will establish a prece
dent for attacks on ths validity of ths
South Dakota law. A similar law passed
