PARTS OF OMAHA
YOUDO NOT SEE
Some Walk Over the Same
Eonte Without Variance

By A. R. GROH.
I don't care he long you've lived
in Omaha, the chances are that you
will read through the second para
graph of this article and not know
what street it describes. Try it.
Starting at Sixteenth street and go
ing east, on your right they are build
ing a three-story garage; on the left
is a parochial school. In the second
block on your right is a six-story fac
tory. In the fourth block on your
left is a wholesale house a block long.
The fifth block is taken up with rail
road tracks. The sixth block has im
plement houses on your right. The
eleventh block has implement houses
on your left and a board fence on
your right. ,
Can you name the street? No?
Well, it a street you have seen many
timea. It is Leavenworth street, from
Sixteenth to Ninth. The box factory

. house a block long is McCord-Brady.
The board fence is that enclosing the

There are many parts of the city
that many of us never see, even
though we live here for years. 1
knew a man once who worked in the
same place for twenty-eight years.
He alwaya walked to work and al
ways along the aame streets between
his home t.td his work.
Proceeding east, now, along Leav
enworth streef, on our exploration of
Omaha, we pass a frame hotel where
board and room arc advertised t the
low-cost-of-living price of $5 a. week.
Two corners are occupied by aban-

then there are little stores, blacksmith
hop, lumber yard, asphalt plant and

; streets, on your left, you see a great
pile of massive buildings with smoke
Itacks, vomiting black smoke. These
make up the city's power and light
center, the power plants of the street
railway company and the electric
light and power company, extending
over a couple of blocks.
Pushing on even past these, and at
the risk of being stopped on suspicion
of being alien enemies or something,
we come to the railroad tracks which
border the river, where puffing en
ginei pursue -their ceaseless task of
moving box cars. Between these
tracks and the Missouri river is a
narrow strip of ground, higher than
the tracks. Climbing to the .top of
' this ground, you see the great, yellow
flood of water, swirling onward to-

GENERAL WILLIAM WRIGHT.
Omaha friends of "Billy" Wright
were more than pleased to learn of
his promotion to be a brigadier gen
eral. In the olden diy when Fort
Omaha was a regular army post and
the army was a part of the social life
of Omaha, Lieutenant Wright was one
of the leading figures in athletics. He
was a noteil West Point foot ball
player and frequently was called upon
to umpire some of the big university
games in Omaha. He also to.ok part
in the tennis tournaments.

the edge, for it is precipitous, and if
you slip you will fall into dec water
and a swift current.
The river is wide at this point,
much wider than where the Douglas
street bridge crosses. People on the
other bank look so small they can
hardly be seen. You can distinguish
a bunch of boys in their birthday
clothes, swimmin' in a pool little
back fron the river bank. They seem
like figures in a moving picture, for
they arc to far away their shouts can
not be heard.
Walking north along the river, we
pass a one-legged man, building a
boat, and finally come to the massive
piers of the Douglas street bridge.
You f.jn't realize how big that bridge
is or how high it it stands above the
water until you get underneath it and

In the Nebraska crop report for

crop is estimated at 6,000,000 bushels,
as against 3,000,000 last year; oats,
95,000,000 Bushels, as against 80,000.-

Generally 'he rainfall was light and
farmers were enabled to spend prac

Here is yottr chance to save $150 to $200. But you must
act quickly. Present low price of Jeffery Six cannot be
maintcjned indefinitely- certainly not after present stock
of raw materials is exhausted. Automobile prices are
soaring. They must still go higher. Take advantage of this

in 1916 when the present low
price was fixed. Even then other
cars in its class w& $50 to $100
But now, automobile prices have
been forced to new, high levels.
They have gone steadily up and up.
Forty-four manufacturers have had
to make raises within the past
few months. Cars which sold around
$1500 are now marked, up as high
as $1700 and over.
The tremendous rise in the cost of
raw materials has forced these ad
vances. Materials are still on the rise.
