This story might be a mere figment of
the imagination, but It Isn't. It's the
truth, nothing but tho truth.
During the time that the militiamen
have been doing excellent guard work In
the stricken district they have been sup
plied with food by the city. In all cases
the "grub" has not been as good aa
that to which they navB ueen used to
eating, and here and there among the
epicures of the soldiery there have been
complaints. In one case some of the
food was sent back labeled: "Not for
This food has been hauled to the ol
dlera on trucks offered by several firms
about tho city. One of these motor
wagons has been donated by the Bvir
gossJQranden company and It Is with the
driver of this machlno that this story of
bad food originates.
Sunday morning the driver rushed out
with" some rations Including several pots
of coffee. A policeman on duty at one
of the posts where the food was to be
left, knowing of the complaints, thought
he would sample the coffee. He did, and
declared that It was very rotten, but
he drank all from one pot.
The driver of the truck, learning from
tho officer that the coffeo was not
good, decided he would take back the
rest , and get some new. When he met
the 'chef of the cooking station he ex
plained to him:
"i!" am bringing back this coffee; the
soldiers are kicking on It already."
"Why, what In the Sam Hill Is the
matter with them?" expostulated the
chef, "That Isn't coffee; It Is pruna

MANY ARTICLES BLOWN
ACROSS THE MISSOURI
Thousands of articles blown from
Omaha homes by" Sunday's tornado are
being found along the territory west of
the limekiln road north of Council Bluffs.
The tornado expended Its fury in Omaha,
and by the time It had reached the Iowa
shore of the river had becomo a widely
scattered wind, bearing along all the
lighter debris that had been carried high
In the whirling cloud.
Articles of every conceivable descrip
tion have been found scattered over the
country, clinging to the trees and
bushes and rolled up on the ground.
Many nre of value. Scores of hats for
men and women have been picked up,
several of the latter with valuable os
trich plumes. One hat. was picked up
yesterday that had a $20 undamaged
plume on It. Many silk dresses and fine
garments, soiled and encased In mud,
have been fpund. A man's silk shirt, con
taining valuable gold ouff buttons and
diamond studs was found yesterday near
the limekiln road.
People living In that vicinity have been
making finds that have added materially
to their wealth. Yesterday crowds of men
and boys from Council Bluffs wero seek
ing the wind-blown household treasures
and clothing of their unfortunate neigh
bors this side of the river, but no in
stance has yet been reported where they
have sought to restore recovered goods
to their owners. It was said last evening
literally wagonloads of lace curtains and
window blinds are scattered over that
part of the country.
