HOW CAN WHEEL BE
FLAT ANDROID TOO
Learned Street Car Man Eluci
dates the Perplexing Ques
tion to Mr. Qrob.
NOW HE KNOWS REASON
By A. R. GROH.
"Why are flat wheels?"
This winter weather has made them
plentiful. They pounded on my ears
so much that I propounded the above
question to a street railway man.
He was a very learned man. Oh,
very learned, indeed. And witty, too.
Almost as wittv at mvself.
He answered me scientifically,
metalurgically, polysyllabically and
"There are really no flat wheels,
he botran with a smile.
"Pardon me," I said, "but out where
I live you can hear the wild flat wheel
calling to its mate both by day and
"Nevertheless." he persisted, "and
strictly speaking, there are no flat
wheels. If thev were flat they would
not be wheels, don't you ee? And,
vice versa, as long as they are wheels
thev cannot be flat, lhe terms are
mutually contradictory. You get my
"Some thought I" I exclamation-
Or a Square Circle.
"You see, we might just as well talk
of a square circle or a round triangle
as of a flat wheel." he rambled on.
"Yes, or of an intelligent interview
with certain people, I appended, not
without subtle wit and innuendo.
He was silent, eying me auspic
iously. "You know what I mean," I taid,
following up my advantage. I am
speaking of wheels commonly known
as 'flat wheels.' sometimes found on
street cars and which come up the
street, punctuating the circumambient
atmosphere with dull bump-Dump-
bumps against tne partem rans.
"Ah. now 1 grasp your meaning,
said mv wittv little friend. "Yon re
fer to wheels, round wheels, on whose
periphery there is, at some point,
Your perspicacity ana perspicuity
are perfect," I said. "Now, elucidate,
please. Why are flat wheels?
"I will tell vnu." he said. "In such
weather as we've been having this
winter, the rails are often slippery.
When the cars are stopped suddenly
the brakes sometimes lock the wheels
and they slide along the rail for a
few feet or vards.
"With several tons ot weight on
each wheel, vou can imagine the
grinding that they get against tne
rails. That is what makes them flat."
"Is there any cure for flat wheels?
"If the grinding hasn t gone
through the outer surface of chilled
steel, the wheels can be ground down
to perfect roundness," he said. "But
it the grinding lias penetrated tnrougn
that little layer of chilled steel, the
wheel is ruined and must be dis
carded. Rectifying of flatness in
wheels is constantly going on.
"I thanked him warmly for his
masterly elucidation of a subject that
had been puzzling me.
He protested that no tnanks were
needed, that conversation with me
was in itself ample reward for any
slight service he might have rendered.
And so we parted with mutual ex-
pressions of respect.
U. P. Has Little Perishable
Tied Up by the Blockade
Union Pacific freight officials are
congratulating themselves in having
so little perishable stuff out on the
line in Wyoming during the blockade
and cold spell. All citrus fruit was
held back, instead ot having been
sent into the zone ot cold weather.
One hundred and fifty carloads of
apples and potatoes, coming in off
the Short line from Oregon and
Washington, were run down to Green
Kiver and there put into tne round
house and consequently there will be
no losses trom treezing.
Mother and Two Children
Play Firemen Profitably
Assisted by her two young children
Mrs. Charles Wittlake, 3424 North
Fortv-first street, fought and ex
tinguished a fire in the kitchen of her
home which firemen believe would
have destroyed the place if it had not
been conquered just when it was.
An overheated range set hre to the
kitchen walls. Mrs. Wittlake called
her children and they helped her
fieht the names with buckets of
water. When the firemen arrived the
fire was out. The damage was slight.
Omaha in Federal Fight
Against Price of Paper
The high cost of paper has hit
Uncle Sam with a bang. An order
received bv the postmaster raises the
price of stamped unprinted envelops
from $21 a thousand to $21.32. The
increase on paper, not counting the
value of the stamps, is approximately
32 per cent. All postmasters were
instructed to make an invoice on the
envelopes they have on hand and
notify the department at once. The
increased price goes into effect im
Wives and Hubbies Make
Up While Court Waits
In Judge Day's court, where large
numbers of decrees are ground out
of the divorce mill each week, five
cases have been dismissed in the last
dav or so as a result of reconcilia
tions. There are about twenty-five
more divorce cases slated for dismis
sal in the next few days. "For the
sake of the children" is often a big
factor in couples making up on the
eve' of the granting of a decree
When You Have a Cold.
It is when you have a severe cold
that you appreciate the good qualities
Frank Crocker, lana, ill., writes
"Our five-year-old son Paul caught
severe cold last winter that settled on
his luniis and he had terrible cougli
mg spells. We were greatly worried
about him as the medicine we gave
him did not help him in the least. A
neighbor spoke so highly ot Cham
herlain's Coueh Remedy that I got i
Wtlc of it. The first dose benefited
him so much that I continued giving
it to lura until he was cured. Adv
