War and Cool Weather
Keep Down Summer Travel
While the tourist travel to the
mountains of Colorado has been un
usually light since the summer rates
became effective, June 15, railroad
passenger men say that the cause can
lie attributed to the war and not to
the advance of the-rates over those of
Formerly the railroads have made a
summer tourist round trip rate of
$17.50 from Omaha to Denver, Colo
rado Springs and Pueblo. This year
the rate is $20, with the usual return
limit, September, 1.
Railroad men say that as the sum
mer advances and the weather be
comes warmer, Colorado travel will
pick up, but they hardly expect it to
reach the record of former years.
Mother Now Glad Her Son
Has Gone to the Front
The regrets that Mrs. J. J, Mc
Alister, No. 221 Helen apartments,
hfd when her son joined the army
iix weeks ago against her wishes,
were wiped away Thursday when the
following letter was received from
him by his mother from El Paso:
Hope that what I have to tell you will
please you. I am an acting- corporal. Al
though I have no atripea as yet, I have
been put In charge of a aquad. This la
only a "tryout," but I know I can make
Kood. The commander took me out of the
renkl yesterday and placed me in charge
ol a squad, and today It waa posted on the
bulletin that I was to act as corporal. This
is the first promotion of any recruit in the
Mrs. McAllister says she is now
glad he enlisted.
Says the Railroads Are
Making Less Money
Ballard Dunn, who gathers statis
tics for the Union Pacific and other
western lines has compiled figures
showing that the war has been having
a serious effect upon the railroads in
the way of cutting into their net rev
enues. Mr. Dunn shows that while the rail
roads of the country, during the first
three months of this year, handled
$36,500,000 more freight and $23,000,
000 more passenger business than
during the corresponding period of
last year, the expense of operation, to
tether with taxes, increased to such
in extent that the net operating in
come fell off nearly $25,000,000.
City Mission Picnic at
Lake Manawa Next Tuesday
The Omaha City Mission will hold
its annual picnic at Manawa park

streets in chartered cars at 9:30 in the
"We are going to try to have
enough lunches this time," said Miss
Magee of the City Mission. "We usu
ally fall short and the children do not
get all they want. This year the
churches are helping us with indi
vidual boxes, one box for each young
ster. We expect to havev ice cream,
tod," she added, "but that has not
been given yet."
Good Weather is in

rain, is to be held in Elmwood park.
