Charlotte Townsenu and Myrtle

have completed details of the local
campaign to weigh and measure 15,

It is evident that the local campaign

Failure to interest voters in prob
lems of municipal government at this
time has prompted many of the can
didates to take up patriotic topics at
the few meetings which are being
held. Mayor Dahlman. for one, has
been delving into the history of the
country from July 4, 1776, to date.
Others have been telling how "our
forefathers brought forth on this con
tinent a new nation," etc.

Junk Dealers Adopt Badge
For Protection of Public
E. Yaks, president of the Omaha
Junk Peddlers' Protective associa
tion, reports that the association is
trying to protect both the patrons
and their members by giving badges
to all members and by urging their
patrons to ak to see the badge before
they buy or sell goods to a peddler.
The members maintain that this wit.
do much to discourage work by un
scrupulous dealers. The -association
holds regular meetings every two
weeks at Wolfe's hall, Twenty -fourth
and Charles streets. .
