WHAT'S IN A NAME?
PERHAPS A STORY
Farnam Street Resurrects
Memory of Banker and Doug
las Smacks of "Stephen A."
HAENEY IS MILITARISTIC
By A. R. GROH.
Why was Farnam street named
Farnam street? And after whom
were Dodge, Douglas, Harney, How
ard and other streets named?
Listen, and this Well of Wisdom
will explain to you.
Farnam street was named after
Henry Farnam, a wealthy banker of
Hartford, Conn. He was one of the
principal financiers of the Rock Island
railroad, which had reached as far
west as Iowa City when Omaha's
first streets were named. He was a
friend of Dr. Enos Lowe, who got
the street named for him.
Thus did Omaha escape having its
main thoroughfare named Main
street. But suppose this great Rock
Island financier's name had been
Sznbolowzskil Think of what might
have befallen us I
Dodge street was named for A. C.
Dodge, once a great man in Iowa af
Douglas street was named after
Stephen A., 'the Little Giant," whom
Abraham Lincoln defeated for the
And right here it is notewortny tnat
practically all the streets of the
original Omaha that were named aft
er statesmen were named after demo
cratic statesmen. Think of the dense
darkness that must have veiled the
minds of the people in those daysl
Just think ot.-itl
Harney strict took its name lrom
General Harney, stationed in the west
when Omaha was started.
Colonel Howard, the father-in-law
of Henry Farnam, was honored
the christening of Howard street.
President Andrew Jackson, of
course, is responsible for Jackson
Doubt About Jones.
There is a little doubt about Jones
street, there being many Joneses,
A. D. Jones platted the original town
and some say he honored himself and
the whole Jones family. Others hold
that it was named, for George W.
Jones, an Iowa public man.
General Henry Leavenworth, who
gained military distinction in the war
ot ibia was recognized in tne nam
ing of that street. He founded Fort
Mason street was named for
Judge Mason of the Iowa bench, and
Marcy tor William L. Marcy,
democratic statesman born in Massa
chusetts in 1812. Pacific street was
named for the Pacific Ocean.
Pierce street was named for Frank
lin Pierce, who was president in 1854
and signed the enabling act by which
Nebraska became a territory.
Capitol avenue was so named be
cause the original capitol, later the
old high school, stood on that street.
A firm of bankers who came here
from Davenporf, la., secured the
naming of one street after their old
home town. Chicago was named for
the Windy City.
Lewis Cass, secretary of state un
der President Buchanan, was honored
in the naming of Cass street.
The adventurers en route to Cali
fornia used to land from the river r.t
the foot of what is now California
street. Hence its name.
Webster street, of course, was
named after the great Daniel.
Burt, Cuming and Izard streets
were named in honor of Nebraska's
first three territorial governors, all
Sherman avenue was named after
General Sherman, who made a short,
terse definition of war.
Automobile Used to
Catch Runaway Horse
After it had injured several persons
who were not quick enough to get
out of the way, a runaway horse
careening north on Eighteenth street
was finally caught by Harry Cannon,
2589 Pratt street, last night. Cnnon,
in an auto, gave chase, and finally
passed it. Then he slowed down in
front of it and gradually caused the
animal to stop, when it was then
put under restraint.
J. W. Blackwell, 4111 North Twenty-eighth
street was driving the ani
mal at Eighteenth and Clark streets,
when it suddenly plunged forward,
throwing him from his seat. He fell,
breaking his right arm and suffering
internal injuries. Mike Daly, Flor
ence, was knocked down by the horse,
and so was a woman, whose name
was not learned.

They are in the same class. It used to be when
a man wanted help he asked among his friends or
put a sign in his window where only a few people
passed. Today he puts in a Want Ad and Tomor
row he has a dozen to choose from.
Perhaps he has furniture to sell a Want Ad
brings many buyers.
He has a house to rent a Want Ad rents it
Or he may want to sell it a Want Ad will bring
the buyer to him:
