Of Police, But Copper -Disagrees
With Him
Impersonating the chief of police of
Omaha proved an unfortunate experi
ment for a person calling himself Abe
Darwin, who announced Buffalo, N.
Y., as hit home, last' night, Darwin
was telling a farmer from Iowa who
he was when Patrolman Graham
horned on the conversation. The self
, styled police chief ordered the patrol
man to go on an walk his beat The
cop retorted with a blow of his club
and later accompanied Darwin to jail.
, Was M. P. Responsible
' Por Death of Smith?
Was the Missouri Pacific railroad
responsible for the death of Frank
W. Smith, a locomotive engineer,
who was shot and killed by Ezra A.
Koontz, in the company's railroad
yards on January 27, 1912?
The question will probably be de
cided in the case of Nellie A. Smith,
administratrix of the estate of her
husband, against the Missouri Pac
cific, the widow of the engineer ask
ing $50,000 damages.
Koontz was tried for the killing of
Smith, but was adjudged insane, be
ing sent to the state insane asylum
at Norfolk. A couple of years ago
he was paroled to his brother at Kan
sas City, Mo., where he is residing at
the present time. . '
Smith and Koontz were fellow en
gineers, said to have been the best
of friends. ..The former was prepar
ing to go out on his run, from Omaha
to Falls City, Neb., when Koontz
shot him. It is set forth in the pe
tition that Koontz at the time be
lieved his wife unfaithful and that
Smith was responsible. .
, The case had a hearing in the
United States district court, but the
attorneys for the plaintiff later de
cided to bring it before the local dis
trict court The petition maintains
that Smith s death was brought about
by the negligence of the railroad
company in having an insane man
n its employ.
Yeggs Try Twice
To Blow Mill Safe
Yeggs tried twice with two charges
of nitroglycerin to blow the safe in
the West Lawn mills at an early
morning hour, but were frightened
away before they got any loot. Resi
dents who live near say they heard
two distinct explosions between the
hours of 2 and 3 o'clock. ;
Deputy Sheriff Hogan found 'the

Other Escorts Are Wall Flow,
en on Occasion of the
Annual Ball.
Percy and Clarence and Harold and
a good many other perfectly nice
young men, stood around the corners
of the Auditorium last night, gloom
ily lamenting their 'fate, while Mickey
and Patsy and Eddie, the boys who
wear bright red suspenders, were in
high feather.
It was the occasion of the eighth
annual ball given by the Omaha Me
tropolitan Fire Department's Relief
association. Over 1,200 couples were
on the floor and when George Green
and his military musicians turned in
the general alarm that set all the
merry throng a-reeling in their hose.
Fire laddies were never more in de
mand, unless it was at a fire.
No Chance for Others.
It teemed as if, Percy and Ferdie
and Ethelbert and all the other dear
boys just couldn't get a girl to dance
with. But the lads in the blue uni
forms and brass buttons had 'em in
plenty and to spare, in tact, they were
all cluttered up with femininity.
It started out with a one-step to
the tune of "Everbody Loves a
Lover," it looked as if everybody
(speaking from the viewpoint of
Percy and Ferdie), loved the firemen.
Along about 1 o'clock it got to be
such tough sledding for the civilian
swains, that Chief Salter was cor
nered and applications by the score
for jobs as fire-eating demons were
thrust upon him.
Even George Powers, the mail car
rier (with emphasis on 'the'), found
himself hard put until Clyde Dunn,
who was busy in the box office,
loaned him u couple of girls.
. Most Successful of All,
From every angle, the annual dance
was a pronounced success. According
to Walter Foran, the affair, which was
the most successful of any of the so
cial functions eer sponsored by the
Omaha fire department, will net close
to $1,800 for the relief fund. Commis
sioner Withnell end Chief Salter
helped promote the event and were

Engineer Johnson
Booms -Good Roads
Nebraska would have the best roads
in the country if the plan of George
E. Johnson, state engineer, matures.
In a letter to the Omaha Automobile
association he advocates the passing
of a law at the next session of the
legislature extending the authority of
the present Board of Irrigation, High
ways and Drainage to the supervision
of all county roads connecting county
seats. .The board, according to his
letter, would take these roads and in
the course of from four to six years
build them up to such a perfection
as to be the model for all city and
town highways.
There would be no added expense
to this plan, he adds, as the members
of his department could do the work
without interfering with their present
duties. That a much larger portion
of federal money for the improve
ment of Nebraska roads might be ob
tained if this plan is carried through
is also brought out in the letter.

You can keep your hair at its very
best -by washing it with this simple,
inexpensive shampoo, which cleanses
the hair and scalp thoroughly of all
the dandruff and dirt and (eaves a
clean, wholesome feeling. Just use a
teaspoonful of canthrox dissolved in a
cup of hot water, afterwards rinsing
thoroughly with clean water. One
finds that the hair dries quickly and
evenly, is unstreaked, bright, soft and
fluffy, so fluffy in fact that it looks
more abundant than it is, and so soft
that arranging it becomes a pleasure.
All scalp irritation will disappear and
the hair will be brighter than ever
before. Advertisement.

He refused to take watches, saying
he wanted only "ready money."
The bandit was about six feet tall,
wearing a mackinaw, gray cap, his
face masked with a white handker
chief. He climbed over the back plat
form of the Pullman buffet observa
tion car on the rear of the train,
opened the door and stepped inside.
"Hands up," he ordered aa he
backed up his command with a re
volver. The only passengers in the
car, two men and two women, shocked
out of speech, obeyed.
"You may be seated, ladies. I won't
bother you," he aaid. Mrs. H. O.
Fredericks of Omaha, wife of a sales
man for a music firm, sat down,
very much relieved, as she was
wearing diamonds and Jewelry valued
at $J,000. Mrs. Mary Gray West of
Geneva, N. Y., also sat down. She,
too, had on diamonds.
He then lifted the pocketbooks1 of
the two men passengers. He got $12
from Adolph Kroner, Kansas City,
and $6 from L, F. Kleeman, Mount
Washington, Mo, He then went into
the dining room. He encountered C.
E. Schmitt, the conductor, who had
just sat down to supper. "Got any
money?" asked the bandit. "No," re
plied Schmitt. "Stand up." Schmitt
complied. The bandit took $80 from
him, which was half of his own money
and half the receipts of the company.
Central Warriors
Ready for Sioux Falls
Foot ball practice will be resumed
at Central High school this afternoon,
following a two-day layoff, due to the
cold weather. Coach Mulligan does
not intend to run the risk of having
any members of his squad on the sick
list just before the Sioux Falls game,
which takes place next Saturday.
The squad is in good shape and are
anxious to pile up a big score against
Sioux Falls. Although they did not
win from Lincoln last Saturday, the
team considers they have only them
selves to blame, for they passed up
numerous chances to score.
Lyman Phillips, the big tackle, is
considering entering the naval acade
my at Annapolis, for which he took
a course in a preparatory school last
year. In case he leaves before the
close of the season, Richard Haller
will probably fill his place.
