UNCOLN, Neb., July 31. (Special.)
,An Interesting feature of the maneuvers
of the National Guard next month will
be an aeroplane. This mochone was built
by the signal corps of Fremont them
selves and yesterday General Hall bought
them an engine, which will enable them
to have the machine properly equipped
by the tlmo the maneuvers take place.
This Is effected to make the maneuvers
tip-to-date and add much to the Interest
Rntes for Special Cars.
Application has been made by the Lin
coln Traction company to the railway
commission for changes In rules regard
ing the charges to be made for special
cars, when let out to Individuals of to
parties. The minimum charge has been
3 per car running up to a mlxlmum of
$7. A new rate will be made, which will
cover a minimum charge and will enable
the company to receive the regular faro
for each passenger riding In the special.
A charge of (1 per car per hour for the
time the car Is standing Idle will be asked.
This applies only to Lincoln, but It Is
probable that the commlston may create
similar rules or some rulo, which will be
satisfactory regarding the Omaha Street

tortured with itching and burning.
" I tried different remedies with no benefit
for months. I had given up all hope of her
ever getting rid of it, then I concluded to
try Cuticura Soap and Ointment. The
