or a total of 1,W,870 during a year. Each
ear travels an average of 12.1 miles per
day, averaging 23 trips and making an
average of. l.tsT stop.

According to morning reports to

' western and central bortlons of the

Hurlington, scattered through all por
tions of Nebraska, fourteen reported
frost, but nowhere severe enough to
injure the most tender vegetation,'
except at Belmont, in the extreme
west part of the state, where the tem
pernture dropped to freezing.'
A Ion the Northwestern' line tempera
tures during the n!g!-.i dropped to 30 to 36
degrees nbovo zero, l-ui the brisk wind
prevented any frost. ' On the southern
line temperatures during the night
ranged trom to so above eero.

ing tne entire night, which did ' an ay

but not heavy enough to do any damage.
Reports to the Missouri Tai-i'lc. from
the fruit growing section In the south
east corner of the state were to the effect
that the mercury did not drop to the front
line during tho night. Around W to'.V)

early this morning, but not enough to
Injure the moet tender plantsv except In
rare Instances. On the high lands, gar
Oner asserted there waa no Indication
of frost.
