street railway company by Abraham
Stoler, father of Etta, alleging that
while the 5-year-girl was riding on a

Wake Up! Get Busy!
Herman Resident in
'Nineties Is Head of
"Uncle George" Buffington of Her
man, who has a daughter who is a
great -grandmother, has, "put one
over" on Father Time. He steps
around today as though he hadn't
been born even before the Monroe
doctrine was conceived.
Mr. Buffington was born in Ohio
ninety-five years ago. It was not un
til he was 58 years old that he trekked
to the west and settled at Blair, Neb.
He paid $700 for ninety acres of
ground in 1879, and sold it only last
week for $10,400.
This young-old man has three "ba
bies." They are Mrs. J. M. Evans of
Blair, 70 years old; Mrs. C. M. Par
rish of Herman, 67 years old, with
whom Mr. Buffington li' es, and J. L.
Buffington of Clearwater. Mrs. Par
rish is a great-grandmother, thus con
ferring upon her father the distinc
tion of being the head of five genera
tions. In all there are forty-nine mem
bers of the family. The youngest and
most exacting member is 18 months
old, and is the only one of all the de
scendants who can ''boss" Mr. Buf
fington. Coalition Cabinet Is
Urged for Germany
In Berlin Tageblatt
Amsterdam (Via London), Sept. 20.
A coalition government for Ger
many is urged by the Berlin Tageblatt
in a long leader by Hans Sivkovich, a
member of the Reichstag.
"Never since the beginning of the
war," he writes, "has the German peo
ple awaited with such tension and ap
prehension the forthcoming meeting
of the Reichstag. The period since
the last meeting has brought us suc
cesses, but also many difficulties, mili
tary setbacks, and new enemies. The
whole people stand at the gate wait
ing and asking.
"The Reichstag leaders will have to
listen to speeches stronger than ever
on the events of the last few weeks.
Therefore it were wise to consider
carefully whether the leaders of all of
our great parties should not be called
together to form a coalition ministry."

Many humorous incidents have oc
curred the last two days at the auc
tion sale of uncalled for United States
mail, which is being conducted on the
steps of the Capitol avenue entrance
of the federal building.
While bidders for the most part
know what they are getting when
they bid in on any one of the 600 odd
packages offered at the sale, once in
a while a piece of mail is 'knocked
down" that may contain, for all any
one knows, jewelry, but more often
something on the order of sewing
machine oil, insect powder, a musty
volume of civil war jokes or the like.
The laugh of the morning was pro

FURNISH COURSE IN CIVICS
When the mild-mannered professor
who dishes out lessons in -civil gov
ernment at Central High school
passed out a list of questions yester
day, to be answered today in class
room, he little recked that before an
other sunrise he'd have most of the
governmental machinery of Omaha
standing on its ear.
As early as 6 o'clock last evening
one young chap appeared at the police
station and hunted up Captain Demp
scy. whom he knew.
"Hey, cap, how many cops arc there
on the force?"
Dempsey told him and the reply was
jotted in a book, and the boy went
The Big Idea.
"What's the big idea?" Denipsey
wanted to know.
"Tha's my civics lesson for tomor
row," the youngster answered.
"Pretty soft, nowadays," answered
Inside of the next hour every kid
in the civics class who possessed an
acquaintance or a friend on the police
department called headquarters to ask
"How manv sergeant?"
"'-.ow many detectives?"
"How much does the chief get?"
At the fire stations it was the same.
Youngsters who didn't own a friend
who could tell them first-hand about
the fire department got their parents
to do it. Louis Iterka, former presi
dent of the city council and ex-police
magistrate, was stumped by juvenile
friends and finally he, too, commenced

E. A. Howell, manager of the Inter
change Credit bureau of Denver and
retiring secretary of the Retail Credit
Men's National association, spoke be
fore the Retail Credit Men's associa
tion at the Fontenelle on the purposes
of the national organization and the
need of country-wide co-operation on
the part of merchants for the estab
lishment of a uniform mode of ex
tending and taking care of credit. He
explained how the national associa
tion protected the merchants of the
nation generally by informing them
through their local organization of
the status of the individual seeking a
charge account hy the record of the
individual in place of residence or
throughout the country. He spoke of
the necessity in modern business of
making a credit account a definite
transaction with the customer as to
payment, and the necessity of a cus
tomer furnishing credentials as to his
status as a creditor the same as a
man who bor ,s money from a. bank
must furnish his banker the security
that he will pay his loan.

which C. E. Corey, president of the
.local organisation, presided. J. I).

being carried on by the Omaha asso

Art Smith to Quit Flying
And Go Into Business
Deadwood, S. D., Sept. 20. (Spe
cial.) According to word he has sent
to friends here, Art Smith, the aviator;
has given up flying and as soon as
his broken leg, which is healing in a
Chicago hospital, mends, he will leave
for Japan again, where he expects to
enter the mercantile field. Smith
made a particularly dangerous flight
here, the first one in the Black Hills,
in 1912, when he was unknown to
fame, and he then asserted that as
soon as he acquired a competence
with his flying he would quit the
game. He says now he is through and
will leave the field to newcomers.
