Thirteen directorates of the Carter Lake
Cpuntry club are digging away at the
perplexing problem of naming thirteen
avenues and streets In the thirteenth
year of the century. It la the hope of the
memberhlp to avoid anything so method
ical and Irrelevant to the zelstgetit of
tho organization as to follow an alpha
lietlcal arrangement, but Just what sys
tem would be apropos ! still debatable.
There Is a growing favor, however, In
using; the names of the first board of
directors. They are easily pronounced,
no two alike, could be set Into n har
monious whole and If settled upon within
the year would carry with them the
romance that the trinity of thirteen Is
bound to support.

Although Labor Commissioner Charley
Poole has spent severnl days In Omaha
looking over the situation with regard to
the nine-hour working law for fomnli
labor, there are still places In Omaha In
which tho girls are kept working morn
than nlno hours a day. It Is said thwt
there are several 'employers of female
help who havo said they would work
their girls the way they had been doing
and the Way the girls were satisfied to
As a matter of fact the girls are satis
fled to work tho Way the employer wants
them to In many Instances because they
are afraid to ask for . the privilege
granted them by the Maw for fear of

Dr. Harry Foster, father of thb nine-
hour bill In the legislature. Is one who
has discussed tho labor law with n fe
malo waiter In a certain restaurant In
Omaha. The woman told him tho girls
there were working ten hours per day
nd seven days a week.
Dr. Foster offered to force the manager
of "the restaurant to give the girls bettor
hours under tho law.
"No, no. don't you dare dc that,"' the
girl pleaded. "I'm afraid he would fire
mo or cut down our wages It he lud to
Rive us shorter hours. We aro getting
S per week."
Home of the employers have openly
threatened to cut wages If they were
forced to comply with tho law. Dr For
ter sayB they had better go slow on that,
for he Is sure that If thoy do anythlnK
like tlmt the next legislature will pass .1
minimum wage bill.

fl. J. Garrison of Platto Cencer, while

slaughter. He had gone some five feet
when Officer Jensen, whose duty It Is
to preserve peace and tranquillity amongst

Public Offered Free
Use of New Pulmoter
A pulmoter, an artificial respiration de
vice that has been successfully used In
restoring normal breathing where It has
been suspended through disease, as
phyxiation, drowning, electrical shock and
tho various kinds of poisoning, has been
purchased by the Omaha Gas company.
The apparatus will be subject to call of
any emergency and a crew Is now being
Instructed in Its uses.
Tho first purpose In purchasing the ma
chine was to use It In cases where per.
sons suffered with asphyxiation from gas
furnished by the Omaha Gas company,
but as the machine Is equally effective In
many other ways, Its use Is being offered
gratis to the public wherever It can be of
service to anyone. To secure It and the
necessary crew, one should call the gas
company and ask for "pulmoter."
The pulmoter has been successfully used
during the last year In Chicago, Mlnne-
apolsl and several other large cities and
has left no doubt as to its efficiency In
practically restoring life to persons over
come by asphyxiation, etc
