Eugene Stanley, 13-year-old boy,
living at 3816 North Nineteenth
street, is overwhelmed with grief. His
pet clam died Monday night. Balzac
that's the clam'i name was to
have been entered in the Kountze
Park playground pet show on Au
gust 24. Master Stanley had been
lookine forward with considerable in
terest to the event He had planned
to exhibit Balzac in a cage. The
boy's father removed some of the
gloom from the home by promising
to get another clam for the pet
There mav be other clams, but
there was onlv one Balzac. He or
she or it was an exceptionally
bright clam. This bivalve mollusk
had such cunning ways, ana wnat it
lacked in noise it made up in expres
sion. A regular motion picture clam
Eugene fed Balzac carefully and
had him ready for the blue ribbon
class when his pet caught cold and
died during the night, ft died during
the stillness of the night when all of
the Stanley household was asleep.
Superintendent English of the pub
lir nlavirrniinds states this was the
only pet clam which had been entered
at any ot the pet snows acneouiea
for the playgrounds during the next
few weeks. Mr. English commiser
ated the Stanley boy on his loss and
offered to help him get another clam

Of Ice Cream Jump
Ten Cents a Gallon
Wn. hr unto the delightful damsel
who adores the frothy ice cream soda
and the cooling sundae and the small
boy who deiignts to ciap nis nps over
the mellow ice cream cone. The price
of ice cream is going up.
Already the wholesale price of this
delicacy has been advanced. Omaha
manufacturers have announced a gen
eral advance of 10 cents a gallon all
al6ng the line on creams and ices. All
of the manufacturers and jobbers in
the city have made the boost.
Like all manufacturers who have
raised their orices the ice cream men
attribute the advance to the Euro
pean war, which has caused increases
in the cost of cream, sugar; gelatine,
colors, extracts and all the other raw
materials used in the making of the
Formerlv a standard Drice to re
tailers was 75 cents a gallon. This
was the most popular grade of ice
cream, although plain ice cream was
sold as low as 60 cents and as high
as $1." Now dealers will have to pay
85 cents for their vanilla ice cream
and chocolate and strawberry will
cost 90 cents. Ices will also cost 90

Onlv two of the Bang had paused to
capture Olga; the rest had continued
in pursuit of Morton, who was riding
up the valley at top speed.
"Stop or we'll shoot I" roared the
hlorlr-mtistached fellow who was evi
dently the leader of the band, raising
his rifle, but Morton, panic-stricken,
only rode the harder.
Crack 1 The bandit's weapon spoke
and the bullet whined hungrily past
Morton's head. The next bullet
struck the horse. A moment later the
bandits swept up in a cloud ot dust.
"Hands ud!" sang out the leader,
leveling his rifle at Morton, who was
nervously fumbling for his revolver.
A led horse, bearing on its flank
the Bar-E brand, was brought up;
the saddle was transferred from the
wounded animal to the stolen one,
and Morton, his hands bound, was
hoisted into the saddle. Olga and
her captors having now come up, the
entire party turned into the canyon.
After an hour of brisk riding the
steadily increasing roughness of the
country compelled the bandits to
slacken their pace to a walk, at which
gait they continued until long after
darkness had fallen. At last, when
Olga and Morton were reeling in
their saddles from exhaustion, they
entered a small, rock-walled valley,
through which ran a mountain
stream, and the leader of the party,
drawing rein, gave a signal to dismount.

"Do you think there is any chance
of our being rescued?" whispered
Olga to Morton, as she tried to wrap
her aching body in the blanket.
"They must have started search
ing for us when we didn't show up
at the ranch for supper," he answered
gloomily, "but they won't have any
means of knowing which way we
have gone." ;
"Yes, they will," she whispered. "I
thought of that and, when we re
turned up the canyon, I dropped my
handkerchief on the ground without
the bandits noticing."
"Good work," commended Morton.
When supper time at the ranch
came and went without the return
of Olga and Morton, their boat be
came worried, and when darkness
fell and there were still no signs of

COUNTY MAT APPEAL CASE
Douglas county's road bond issuej
providing for the issuance of paving
bonds for $1,500,000 and grading
bonds of $250,000, has been held ille- "J
gal by Judge Charlea Leslie of the
district court in a decision just hand
ed down. . .
The case will be appealed to the,,,
supreme court by the county commis- ,v
According to the decision the con-, T
stitutionality of the acts of 1870 and
under which the municipalities
of the state have been operating for
more than a generation, is attacked. '
Judge Leslies decision sets forth.
that the bonds did not secure! a two-
thirds majority of the total votes cast'
at the primary election and for that
reason are ineffective. The decision
further states that had the road bond
election been held on a day apart,
from the Drimarv election and a ma
jority of votes given the bonds, they
wouio nave carried, in ettect tne -.
decision declares that a two-thirds -
majority is required when the bonds -J
are voted on at a general election,
but that if held at a separate elec- f
tion only a majority is required.
Considers Two Months.
Judge Charles Leslie handed down
the road bond decision after consid-
ering the case for nearly two months.
iwo bond issues were submitted to
Douglas county people on April 18 at
the spring primaries. Two issues pro-
videa for the grading and improving
of main thoroughfares, one calling -for
the Issuance of bonds for $1,500,
000 for surfacing the roads with brick
and the other for $250,000 for grad
ing. Both issues carried by a small
majority, neither receiving a major- '
ity vote of the total number of ballots.
cast at the primary.
These figures tell the story and the
reason for the filing of the suit by
Mr. Patterson: ' -
