' The Michigan State Railroad commis

heart of Detroit, This company has
asked to be allowed to bridge twenty
four grade crossings under an agree

The latest project in this connectipn
is the elevation of tracks of the Belt
Line. After ears of litigation over
the construction of a viaduct across
Dodge street, the city has beeo-sble
i to press its advantage as a victorious
. litigant and at this time the city en
. gineering department has plans for
track elevation over Dodge, Doug

ary improvement toward complete
elevation of the Bdt Line tracks. The
Belt Line has seventy-one grade cross
ings in Omaha. It is stated that the
Missouri Pacific will expend $200,000

nesa, ine Doay win be taken
Riverron, this state, for interment
, Officers yesterday continued to col
lect the clothing of the soldiers which
the guardsmen say they have paid fdr
out of their allowance, and which they
assert should belong to them when
they are.: mustered out January V.
While reluctant to give up the cloth-.
ink, officers experienced no real diffi
culty in securing the uniforms and
other wearing apparel from the men.
Captain W. T. Batesy senior muster
ing officer, said thst the men hid a
mistaken idea about their clothing.
The title of the clothing at all times
rests with the government. 'The,
clothes which are now being collected,
he said, .was to be turned over , to the
state, to reimburse it for the state
clothing the men had used up while
being mobilized to be sent tp the
border. '"." ' ,
The state, he said, cannot give the
clothing which the government turned
over to it away to the soldiers. '-r
How It Was on Border. , Y
- What appears to be so unjust to the
men is the fact that a large number
of their comrades were mustered out
on the border and were allowed to
keep their clothing. They, fail to see
why the government would allow the
soldiers to keep the clothing down
in Texas and take .the same away
after they arrived in Nebrasks.
Today the men are to be given as
much liberty as possible. They will
not be required to stand any drills,
save those that are absolutely neces-
No regular church services will be
held in the-post today and the men
have permission to go to Bellevue or
Omaha and attend any church they
choose. . -.. , r
What Governor Says.
"Every Nebraska Guardsman will
go home with suitable clothing," said
ti.rr.nr Millc. followinc his in
spection of the recently returned
Fourth Nebraska regiment at Fort
Crook yesterday afternoon.. The gov
ernor said that the matter had been
taken op with the War department
by Adjutant General Hall and that ar
rangements had been made for the
men to wear proper alothing to their
homes. i , , . . .
The governor, after being intro
duced to the; staff officers by Adjutant
General Hall, was shown about the
post by Colonel Eberly.? .He visited
every company and showed his pleas

Fourth Nebraska; regiment wnoui
clothes. ' ........
Captain Bate ot tne uniteo puici
army, who is at Fort Crook to act as
mustering out officer for the federal
government, explain the clothes
muddle this way: . , . .-
- "The .men are mistaken in their
idea of the ownership of the uniforms
which they wore. They, don't own
them, the stste doesn't own them, but
the national government does. -, In
confiscating the clothing now the fed
eral government is merely acting as
an agent for the state, because the
federal government will turn over the
clothing to tne state, dm
will never own the clothing' The
uniforms will alway . remain the
property of the national government.
Hence the state cannot give the
clothing to the men tor tne oovious
reason that the state cannot, give
away (fiat which it doe not own.

Dr. Bradbury a Safe Dentist - ."
A Few Facts
Only an expert can pass judgment on a
piece of dental work by inspection. .
Differences In . appearance, construction
and materials are too slight, on the face of
them, to serve as an infallible guide for the
But differences in performance are unmis
takable, .- -
Once in service, the superiority of the
good piece of dental work over the bad the '
durability, comfort and satisfaction given
cannot be hidden. , .,
Upon such clear and material distinctions
is founded the overwhelming preference for
Dr. Bradbury service.
It is so plainly superior to the ordinary
dental work that he has over 110,000 satis
fied patrons to vouch for him.
Dental work leas resolute, leas able, less thoroughly and uni
formly good, could not sustain its popularity. .
But Dr. Bradbury popularity endures AND IS GROWING.
