THERE nro worso things than being arrested If yo'i aro a motorist.
T,o be denied a meal at the homo of a thrifty farmer and to be
thought "grafters" Is tho ridiculous, yet serious, experience which
several Omnha motorists liavo had in the last few weeks.
"It was perfectly awful," I hoard a West Farnam matron say the
other afternoon at a bridge party. "Wo were on our way homo from Lin
coln, and when wo were near Gretna a terrible storm camo up which neces
sitated' our turning In at the first farm house. We had hoped to roach
hotna that evening,' and would havo dono so but for tho rain. Knocking at
the front door, wo asked If wo might have shelter for the night, for the
roads were then In bad condition. Tho man of tho house said that If we
cared to stay in the barn for the night we might, but that ho could not tako
us in, tho house. There were so many grafters going about the country, ho
explained, that they had made It a rule to tako no strangers In for tho
night- We sat in our car until morning In the farmer's barn, angry, and
yet glad, that we' were in out of the rain."
"Another party who mado the trip to Chicago not long ago told of hav
ing to pay 1 for their breakfast, which Included two eggs, bacon, coffee
anS toast. "It was JuBt a hold-up," said tho indignant HtUo woman, "and
wo had to cither cat In the kitchen or in our cars. Tho pcoplo at tho farm
house were quite sure that wo, too, were 'grafters.' "

There Is a saying that "rapid eating Is
slow suicide." If you have formed the
habit ot eating too rapidly you are most
likely suffering from Indigestion or con
stlpatlon. which will result eventually In
serious Illness unless corrected. Diges

be thoroughly masticated and Insalivated

Plans tor the new Fontenelle hotel ars
to be drawn Immediately and bids are to
be asked for on the construction ot the
sixteen story building. T. R. Kimball,
architect, was authorized at the meeting
of the directors of the hotel company
this morning to proceed with the prepara
tion ot the plans as originally submitted
and modified. This will Include thi
twenty-two additional feet on tha west
and will bo built substantially according
to the sketches of plans that have been
W. R. Burbank of New York, who has
leased the hotel, has written the directors
here that he will agree to the altered
plans and to practically every
specification that the local company has
made. When he was here some time ago
he asked for several changes, but later
went back to New York, where he con
ferred with his directors, who authorised
him to accept the propositions.
The plan as It now stands Is to build
a sixteen-story building. The directors
this morning coupled their approval" of
the plans with the provision that one, or,
posably, two stories, may be omitted In
order to bring the cost ot the structure
down to within the funds available. "We
hardly think this will be necessary,
though," said president Wattles after
the meeting. "Competent bidders have
estimated the cost of the proposed build
ing at 1800,000. so it is not likely that
t will be necessary to omit much, as
we have more than that amount ot
money available In the fund at the pres
It Is estimated that It will take some
sixty days to draw the plans. Some fif
teen to twenty days will then be allowed
for receiving and opening bids. It 'Is ex
pected that the work on the hotel may
begin by the middle of October and
some of the directors are estimating that
with good luck all the way through it
might be completed by September, 1914.

DAIRYMAN FINED FOR
MIXING MILK ON THE STREET
John Camenzlnd, a dairyman ot Benson,
waa arrested In front of the Belmont
restaurant at Fifteenth and Dodge
streets, for mixing milk on the street.
The head waiter of the Belmont, who
happened to be conferring with Milk In
spector. Gonsolus, discovered the, deed
which Camenzlnd waa perpetrating and
Gonsolus arrested him. Camenzlnd told
the Judge that one of his milk cans waa
too full and he was merely pouring the
surplus into another. Judge Altstadt
agreed with Gonsolus that the action was
little short of a penitentiary offense and
fined Camenzlnd 350 and costs. W. E.
Bowers, a milkman of Florence, will be
tried for the same offense Friday morning.
