HO is the meanest man In Omaha?
WSome months ago the editors seemed to agree that this per
son was a housebreaker then operating in our city, a miscreant
who broke into peaceful citizens' homes and robbed babies' banks
of their pennies.
But that was all a miscalculation.
The meanest man in Omaha parked a fine seven-passenger car on
Eighteenth street, not far from the city hall, yesterday afternoon. He was
accompanied by his' wife, who hurried to her Christmas shopping, leaving
her motoring coat in her husband's care.
The roat was a beautiful garment, modish and rich, and lined through
out with heavy satin of a delicate pink shade.
"YouH call with the car for me in time?" said the woman as ahe hur
rled for Famarri street.
The meanest man In the world, perhaps, watched his wife disappear
around the corner of the city hall then he lifted up her beautiful coat with
its delicate lining and spriad it over the front of the machine to keep the
engine warm. v
Oh. such a roan! The utter and bottomless depths of the meanness of
him! 'TIs a positive pleasure to expose such a rascal as he.
