SAFETY EXHIBIT IS "
Government's "Safety Tint"
Train in Omaha Until Sat
GIVE SIXTY-TWO LECTURES
The governments "Safety First"
exhibit that started out from Wash
ington over the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad some two months ago has
reached Omaha, coming in from the
west over the Union Pacific Friday
morning. It will remain here until
Saturday evening, going to Lincoln
Monday, and to Beatrice Tuesday.
From Beatrice it will work back south,
getting' back to Washington next
month, when the cars will be dis
mantled and the exhibits restored to
the departments from which they
j The "Safety First" exhibit is car
I ried in sixteen of the all-steel cars
i of the Baltimore & Ohio, the seats
having been removed and the exhibits
arranged along the sides, thus en
abling visitors to view them as they
pass through the train and from one
car to another.
The government exhibit train came
into Omaha from Grand Island at an
early hour and was parked on a sid
ing north of the Union station, under
the Tenth street viaduct, the, rear be
ing at the Ninth street crossing,
where visitors were admitted.
President Calvin Visitor.
A little before 10 o'clock the train
was opened for inspection, the first
visitors being a party of railroad men,
headed by President Calvin of the
i Union Pacific. They were followed
by city officials and a number of busi
ness men and then followed the gen
eral public, men, women and children.
From the opening of the train until
noon it was filled with people, and
they moved through rapidly, a good
deal of the time tramping along to
the tunes of lively music played upon
phonographs and Victrolai.
People who were viewing the ex
hibits arranged and shown by -Uncle
Sam wonder why there are phono
graphs" and Victrola on the train.
There were none when it started oat
from Washington, ' A ' the train
moved from. place to place through
the east, the officials in charge- noted
that the attractions held the spectat
ors too long in the cars, ana casting
about for a method of quickening
their movements and making them
step lively, they hit upon the musical
instruments , as an exDeriment. A
couple of them were tried out "and
they brought , about the results
soueVt. Then one wai installed in
tatti of the cars.
Mova Faster to Music. ' ''
The music, especially the lively
tunes, cause people to move with
more rapidity. Without the music,
it was found that about 800 per hour
was the greatest number that could
be passed through the train. Now.
with the phonograph and Victrola
playing, it is an easy matter to move
1.100 oer hour. - '
Today the train will open t vis
itors at 1 o'clock, continuing until 9
in the evening, when it Wilt be closed,
and later proceed to Lincoln.
Those in charge of the' government
train and those delivering th lectures
are an trained men from the several
departments, all being familiar with
their subjects. In. the party there are
sixty-two experts,, lecturera and help
era, Secretary McAdoo is not with
the party,, he having been callled back
to Washington after, having started
on tne trip. .
Half Million' View Exhibit.
At the entrance' to the train a man
keeps track of the number of visitor
and up to the time of opening in Oma
ha he asserted that since leaving
Washington, in round numbers, jo,
000 persons .had viewed .the exhibit.
No eatimate is made of the number
of exhibits contained in the sixteen
cars, but there are thousand of them.

In the navy, there are models of

'Now, looky here, Miss Cleo," he
said persuasively, "there ain't no call
fer you to do anything foolish, I II get
a job in a day or two an' then every
thing'll be all right Don't you worry
no- more 'bout the money we'll get
along ome way."
'You're a perfect old dear, Hook,
she had answered,' "but we can't go
on tl)i way any longer., My money
i almost gone. Beside, I want to do
this. I simply must have something
toi occupy my mind- If I -don't, I
think I shall go mad. And I want
yoii to give me your word of honor,
Hook, that yqu won t let anyone know
where I have gone.' If you won t give
me your word I won't give you my
address. Do you promise?"
, T i r .l. aij .;t.
"And 1 don t want any mail tor
warded to me." continued Cleo.
"There i no one that is likely to' write
me, anyway, but it any letters should
come I don't want to get them. I
don't want anything that will remind
me of my old life I'm going to try to

"""Of course," she answered. "Sacra

to torget everything connected with
my old life, I didit't include you,
Hook." r , i ,;:
. . i , '
In the train on the way to Sacra
mento, Hope briefly outlined to the
astonished Hook the story Which the
lawyer had told him of Cleo' parent
age -I ...
. "Gee whillikinsF' exclaimed ' the-
sailor. "So Miss Cleo ain't Dr. Burke's,
daughter at all? Waal, now t you
come to speak of it, I've, often said
to myself that she didn't resemble
her paw. And you say she rich,
too?" k .. '..'.- ..
"Ye," said Hope, jrery rich indeed,
I understand." ' i . ' '
"Then," remarked the sea' man, "it
won't make no, difference .to' her
whether they ever find, the secret o'
the submarine or not?" ' - 1
"I won't make any great difference
to her," said Hope, f-but it will to the
government- As toon as we are mar

; The Fletcher, residence, where Cleo
was employed a governess, proved to
be a handsome place in the colonial
style, set well back from the trect
in beautifully kept grounds, which
swept down to the bank of the river.
' Miss Burke at home?" inquired
Hope of a kindly faced lady who was
seated on the verandah sewing.

den somewhere," said the woman
pleasantly. "It is her afternoon to
go out, but she rarely leaves the
grounds. It you will be seated i will
send a servant for her."
"Please don't trouble, said Hope.
I will find ber."
Passing around the house to the
garden in the rear, he strode through
long pergola fragrant with roses,
pushed his way through a screen of
shrubbery and emerged upon a
stretch of lawn, so smooth and beau
tifully tended that it looked like a
piece of green velvet, which swept,
unbrokenly to the low stone wall
which bordered the rtver. standing
beside the wall, her back toward
him, staring intently into the swirling
water was Cleo a slender ana pa
thetic figure in her black gown. Hi
footfalls deadened by the turf, Hope
stole forward softly. Just before he
reached her he apparently came to
a decision, for she stepped into the
low parapet and her figure stiffened.
as does that ot a swimmer wno is
about to 'dive. And at that instant
Hope s arms closed about her. Taken
completely by surprise, she gave a
startled scream; then, glancing over
her shoulder, she found herself look
ing into the face of the man she
loved. With a great od ot renet ana
happiness she snuggled, like a lost
child, into his protecting arms.
Hqok, remembering that there are
occasions when two are company bat
three are a crowd, whiled away an
hour before he joined' them. As his
smiing face appeared above the
bushes. Cleo. transfigured by love
and joy, rushed forward and threw
her arms about his neck.
"I'm the happiest girl that ever

never forget your kindness and pa
