IiTNCOLN, Feb. 7.-(Speclal.)-The at
tempt of a New Tork man to ship cattle
Into Ihls stato which would not stand
the test has been frustrated by Dr. Bos
trom of the stato veterinarian's office,
and the result Is that nlna of the cattle
will bo shipped to South Omaha for
slaughter by government Inspectors and
the rest, numbering sixty-nine, will bs
shipped back to the plaCo they camo
About two months ago the state veter
inarian received word that these cattle
had been shipped to Columbus from
Moravia, N. T and that they wcro un
der suspicion as being not up to the
standard. They were nt onco put under
quarantine and the owner, J. C. Keofe,
notified. Tho shipment certificate was
slgled by L. G. Marshall, a Pennsylvania
veterinarian, and the two were notified
to come to Nebraska and look after the
Symptoms of Tnbercnlot.
The, proposition was made by Dr. Bos
trom, who in the absence of Dr. Klsln,
who was 111 at his former homo In Illi
nois', to have the cattle tested, and Dr.
Marshall came here with tho under
standing that he should make the test.
Tn this Dr. Bostrom objected, but told him
ho could assist with other veterinarians
who were called In to help. The result
of the test made yesterday, while the
cold weathor was unfavorable, tending to
Keep down the temperature, resulted In
the finding of seven of the cattlo show
ing strong tubercular symptoms, while
two more were suspicious. The nine were
at once -ordered slaughtered, while the
balanco were sent back to New Tork
It has been discovered that this ship
ment of cattle were over two weeks on
the road and It is tho belief of the veter
inarian's department that fin attempt was
made to unload them at some other
Nebraska was the first state to raise a
cry against the shipment of cattle Into
the state without the proper health cer
tificate. Since that time fourteen other
states have passed similar laws and It
is now a hard matter for unhealthy cat
tlo to get into these states. Ono thine
that aroused the suspicions of the veter
inary department of thl sstate was thu
fact that the cattle, while coming from
New York, bore tho certificate of a veter
inarian of another state.

STAFLETON, Neb.. Feb. 7.-(Special.)-A
meeting of the Commercial club was
called to take tho manager of the local
telephone company to task for purchas
lng groceries and other supplies from the
mall order houses. It seems that th
calling of tho meeting was credited to
the publishers of the local paper, as the
proceedings of the session consisted prln
ctpally of discussion of controverted
points' between them and the telephone
manager. Tho latter had placed an ad
vertlsement In an Omaha paper to tho
effect that Staplclon was a "splendid
place for a law abiding citizen to put In
a new printing plant," end while the
publishers pf the paper here seemed to
take no potlce of this, other business men
were of the opinion that- thorn was no
BUch crying need, and the sentiment, as
expressed at this meeting of the business
men, was to the effect that no other
newspaper was needed here, provided that
the present paper continued to meet tho
requirements In the field as well as It
has usually done In the past.

SERVICE KEEPS YOUR
TRUCKS ON THE JOB
Packard service is based on our know
ledge that mechanical delay means un
necessary expense to the truck owner.
The cost of a part may be insignificant,
but the cost of an interrupted business
schedule is often prohibitive. When a truck
is laid up waiting for repair parts, your
interest on investment, insurance, driver's
wages and garage rent are going on at the
same rate, while you pay an excessive charge
for emergency hauling.
Delays mean excessive cost that must be
added to the first cost of the truck. That
is why a truck without service is expensive
at any price as compared with a Packard.
Repair parts for Packard vehicles, carried
by the Packard factory and Packard dealers,
represent an investment of one million,
two hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
Packard service means more than keep
ing repair parts in stock. Every Packard
part is ready for quick installation. It is
standardized: no filing, no machining, no
tinkering. Where a fleet of Packards is in
service, the parts are interchangeable in
case of need.
The Packard dealer's thorough inspec
tion and written reports insure continuous
operation at minimum cost. Our technical
men are always ready to give your driver
In short, Packard ' service makes your
transportation schedule a known quantity.
Every time you see a Packard truck,
remember Packard service stands ready to
keep that truck operating every minute of
every working day. Packard service is a
part of the truck, a part of your original
investment. That is one reason why Packard
trucks are predominant in 185 lines of
The Loose-Wiles Biscuit Company after using Packard
trucks for three years, have just placed their tenth repeat
order which calls for 24 two-ton and three-ton units.
