Federal Judge Joseph W. Wood

o'clock Sunday morning. He will
arise, put on his heavy walking shoes
and his second best suit and start out
on a "hike" to Columbus, Neb.
' The judgejs bound for North Platte
to hold a session of court there. He
is going to walk the 100 miles to Co
lumbus, not to save the government
the railroad, fare, but to benefit his
health. His health is all right and
he believes in keeping i all right.
"Hiking" over the country at about
four miles an hour, stopping at farm
houses for a drink of milk and that
sort of thing is the judge's favorite
hobby, even more of a favorite than
his garden. '
There is no other federal judge who
walks from one division of his district
The judge expects to get to Colum
bus in four days. There he will pat
ronize the more rapid, but, he insists,
no more enjoyable method of travel

that is done there will be another
fresh air outifig for him. For Her

there add the judge to the party and
then motor on to Denver, Colorado
Springs, Estes park and the Garden
of the Gods.
This pleasant chapter being con
cluded, the judge will again take to
the railroad for a trip to Los Angeles,
which is in the state of California, and
in which city he will allow his father
to see him for the first time since he
was clothed with the mantle of a
United States judge. The rest of the
party will motor back to Omaha.

NOT ENOUGH MEN TO
FILL ALWOBS SOW
Call for Laborers Comes Into
Omaha from Grading and
EVEN OFFER TO GIVE BONUS
"The man who is not working these
days has no excuse to offer, unless he
is physically disabled," avers Major
McCormick of the Volunteers of
America. "I have a number of jobs
that are waiting to be filled and I
don't have half enough applications to
fill them. Only .yesterday a con
tractor complained to me that he had
been trying to assemble ten men to
ship to Clinton, la., for bridge work
ana mat ne nan oeen unaDie to get
them in Omaha. And tnesc applies
tions are for work other than harvest
work. Any man who is willing to
work, but is not strong enough to
work all day at hard labor can get odd
jobs that will support mm without
any trouble these days. 1 have never
seen such a scarcity of labor in
These sentiments are echoed by
Captain Kline of the industrial de
partment of the Salvation Army, who
says: "Wages have advanced 20 per
cent, I think, since this time last year
ana the men who are employing la
borers cannot find them. Here in our
industrial home we have twenty men
all the time who are either physically
or mentally deficient and can't be sent
out on regular jobs. We do the best
can for them and keep them busy
in our paper gathering, haling and
sorting departments, where they can
make enough to keep themselves."

same tale of good wages and a bonus
for getting men, and no business to
be dTlne because the men who will
work are all employed. One employ
ment agent said: "1 don't see why
the cops don't pinch all the lazy bums
that are hanging out in Jefferson
park and put them to work on the
city jobs and let some of the men
that are working get out in the har
vest fields and on grading, construc
tion and bridge gangs, where they are
needed so badly. There's no money
in the employment agency business
these days, when every worker is
grabbed up for a new job as soon as
his old one is finished."
Gas Commissioner s
Returns, But Says He
Didn't See Obregon
City Gas Commissioner Butler has
returned to his laboratory on the fifth
floor of the city hall. He at once put
a quietus upon reports that after the
democratic convention at St. Louis he
went to El Paso to confer with Gen
eral Obregon. It was known that when
Mr. Butler left Omaha for St. Louis
on June 12 he bore letters from Mayor
Dahlmaii to Roger Sullivan and Tom J
Taggart. The contents of these mis-1
sives have not been divulged, but there
is a rumor that they contained refer.)
ence to Mr. Butler's knowledge of the !
whereabouts of Fancho Villa and sug
gestcd that the democratic leaders ..
send Mr. Butler to the border. , "
During his five weeks' absence the
gas commissioner attended the St
Louis convention, made a flying trip
to Excelsior Springs and fished along
the Elkhorn river. Now that he is 5
back on the job it is said that the
Omaha Gas company will have to sit
up and take notice. - -
