thing would be If Nebraska was infested

The trip will be made principally to te.t

Arthur K. Hayeel, assistant adjutant

Heretofore It was always necessary to
light the fuses of the bombs with a match,
which was a dangerous as well as diffi
cult proceeding, dangerous because of the
proximity of gasoline and difficult be
cause of the wind. The bomb Invented
by t?xr Ilaysel can be lighted without
tho aid of a match and carries no danger
to tho driver of the aeroplane. If the
experiment la successful It Is probable
that there will be a great demand for the
Invention by the army aviation corps for
experimental uses as well as for actual
service, as the arrangement can be used

According to the order Issued by Adju

presumed that the fire started from
sparks from a pawing engine, they hav

discovered. In the meantime a brisk wind
was blowing. This fanned the flames and
they quickly got beyond control, though

Fifty Years Old.
The North Platte depot and hotel was
one of the oldest buildings on the line of
the Union Pacific. It was erected nearly
fifty years ago and shortly after the road
reached that city In 1867. For years and
until dining cars took the place of hotels
along the Union Palcflc It was about the
most popular eating house between
Omaha and Ban Francisco. All trains
stopped there for meals; Like all the
other eating houses along the Union Pa
cific it was operated for many years by
Jake Market of Omaha, who subsequently
turned It and the other eating houses
over to the Pacific Hotel company, an
auxiliary company of the Union Pacific
After dining cars went onto the Union
Pacific the North Platto eating house was
converted into a regular hotel and op
erated by the Pacific Hotel company. The
first story was used for depot, dining
room and hotel office purposes. Sleeping
rooms were on the second and third floor.
