"IT3 UN tUWIND-tTG
HE WAS BUILT
Gee, but Charlie Thomas Is a lucky guy!
He once got a college diploma, he has
been city editor of The Bte for three
years, and now he lias the mumps.
Up until last Saturday he had despaired
of ever having this high honor. He has
never missed out on anything In his life
and even when a boy he got everything
boys should have fr m circus tickets to
measles. But somehow mumps had passed
him by entirely.-
It is said that opportunity knocks but
once at every man's door. She's different
with our city editor. If he doesn't answer,
she goes around to the back door, Just
as she has in this case to deliver what
she forgot on the first trip.
So, Charles Ladd Thomas at the present
time is possessor of several hundred
shares of common and preferred stock
in maxillary obesity and super-agonizing
human torture. He lies abed, resembling
that attractive advertisement of a tooth
ache gum, tl'.r-. epidermis on his counte
nance fitting him like the sack around
the flour. He has a facial physique that
would make any slim man swoon with
envy that's Just how lucky he Is.
It seems that he wasn't satisfied with
a displacement of nearly twenty-five
pounds, so he secured this enormous
cargo of mumps, whlc. he probably will
carry for a couple of weeks o;i the
through rate basis of western classifica
tion No. 51.
With rare discernment he chose the
large variety, the kind that make one
look like a pouter pigeon with an un
usually sulky disposition. They, or lt
says, is mumps Hngular or plural? This is
the trouble with the city editor away).
He probably has changed his opinion as
to that, though. Prior to his own case,
he probably thought mumps was quite
singular, but now, no doubt, he believes
them very plural. He says he has the
kind of mumps that make a pickle taste
like a railroad spike driven crosswise ana
clenched through the esophagus; the
kind that scream and holler as they fol
low an olive down the alimentary canal.
Oh, they're simply fine simply Indescrib
able! Gee. but Charlie Thomas Is a lucky guy I

A big delegation of the Commercial
club will attend the meeting of the city
council committee of the wnole this
morning when the proposed new brick
kiln ordinance comes up for consideration.
It is said a large body of property owners
who oppose the ordinance will also at
tend. The Commercial club is very desirous
of having the ordinance passed. At a
meeting of the executive committee A.
J. Vierllng declared that if the ordinance
was not , passed the price of brick in
Omaha would go up $1 a thousand. "The
old ordinance," he said, "is an absolute :
prohibition to the brick business In
Omaha, to Its expansion or Increase.
Seventy-five per cent of the brick now
used here is made outside of Omaha."
Superintendent C. B. Manuel of the
state industrial school for boys at Kear
ney will have a $25,000 deficit April 1.
His appropriations for the blennlum end
ing April 1 are now exhausted and re
pairs that will cost several thousand dol
lars are under way and will be com
pleted. "We expect to realize about $10,000 from
our crops this year," said Superintendent
Manuel while in Omaha today. "This will
be applied on the deficit. All of the $75,
000 appropriation has been exhausted, but
we have done something to show for
it all." .
Mr. Manuel says $12,0CO of the deficit
will result from repairs othe boiler
house, two new boilers being installed
and the entire power house repaired. Al
together six buildings will have been re
paired. Mr. Manuel expected to make up some of
Ms deficit on purchase of -coal, but owing
to the car shortage the railroads have
been Unable t,p lay la .his supply and his
Coal bill will be no less than usual, he
There are now 205 boys In the school
,and these are preparing to harvest one of
the biggest crops ever raised at the in
stitution. Mr. Manuel has 40 acres of
potatoes, 40 acres of sugar beets, 20
acres of tomatoes, 160 acres of corn.
Mr.-Manuel believes the potatoes will
make 150 bushels to the acre. From forty
acres of oats he expects to harvest sixty
bushels per acre. The tomatoes, he says,
will bring In an average of at least $75
per acre. His corn crop is only "fair."
Railroad May Build
Spur Tracks in City
An ordinance granting the Missouri
Pacific and other railroads owning right-of-way
in Omaha to lay spur tracks on
streets and alleys, when permit for the
same has been given by the city com
missioners, has been drafted by the legal
department and will be considered at an
early meeting of the council.
This ordinance arises out of the con
troversy over the proposed spur track of
the Missouri Pacific at Twenty-seventh
and Boyd streets.
In an opinion accompanying the ordl
nace Assistant City Attorney iAmbert
holds that the council cannot grant "an
Irrevocable permit," but such permission
may be revocated at any time for cause.
Further Mr. Lambert holds the railroad
laying and operating such tracks must
pay all damages and must "serve all
alike;" discrimination in favor of any
part of the public, any business organza
tlon or private individual being equiva
lent to a revocation of the permit.

A story with a moral
for the agricultural supply man
Here is a little story, many years old. A young 1
farmer was complaining because he had so little money Said a neighbbrj ,'
"If you dig deep enough in that turnip field next", you 'houses you will find i
gold." So all summer he toiled and dug; he had, a wonderful crop of tm
nips, but found no gold. One day the neighbor met him, looking weary and -sorrowful,
driving a load of prize turnips to market.' : ';, (
"I see you found your gold,' said the neighbor.
"Where?" snid the lad. "There," said the smiling, neighbor,' as he pointed
to the big, round, yellow turnips. " ' ' ....; :; ;', . "... ;V; ; lM" vi
The wonderful gold mines o South Africa, the
Hand mines, yield $175,000,000 a year. Their discovery startled and thrilled
the world. The yearly output of the farms of the state, of Nebraska eicdeds'
$400,000,000; the total farm population is a little ?over half a. million; the '
state is not yet half tilled. This has not thrilled anybody yet it's time it did. ,
It is time for the people of Omaha and the state to
wake up and realize that Nebraska is full of gold; that all it needs is to be
scientifically and thoroughly and completely cultivated and farmed.
Some things are being done in Nebraska and are
well done. Fortunes are being made Ly those who are doing good .work,
using both their brains and their bunds.' ' ' "
In order to compel our own people , to do as well
as the best, and to attract those who are ambitious to, come to a .state where .
so many opportunities lie open, The Bee is about to issue the : ; : 1
