Travel Through Omaha Is Heavier Since the Rain Police Officer Brown, on duty at the L'nion station, says that the rains have' caused an increase in the local passenger business. He has been on duty at the station for live years and has grown to know the ways of the travelers. He says: "When the corn is beginning to look dry you can tell that the farmers are beginning to linger their dimes very carefully, and they don't come in to Omaha. After we had the rains the first of the week you could see right away that more people came to the city and they looked more cheerful. In the five years I have been on this job I have never seen so much travel ing as this summer. Everybody seems to be going somewhere or coining back."
