COMMENT & DISCOMMENT The pofifeAFion of a Ford and the ability to drive the wild, untamed flivver over the bounding piairie prob ably docs not qualify us to pose as a motorist. We are not quite sure of this, our unabridged not being at hand and our bookkeeper, authority on af fairs of spiritual and mundane, being elsewhere right now. However, even if we are not actually a motorist, we are an editor, and a man holding that exalted position is privileged to Fay what he pleases about anjthing, pro vided his limb are so constructed that he can make speed when the irate reader comes to call him to task.

Some of us editors are built for en durance rather than speed. This was forcibly called to the mind the other evening, while the family had us out for a ride in the cool of the evening. Old and experienced as we are, and with our well known propensity to be cautious, we found ourselves and the flivver stranded on the Chadron road some four or five miles from the fair city. voice was so choked with sobs that we couldn't thank him properly. The family, we have forgotten to say, had on high-heeled shoes, than which there is nothing worse to walk the country roads. We wore tight hoes ourself. One peculiar thing about automobil ing is the way other cars fail to come your way. The Chadron road, on that eventful evening, was simply crammed with cars. They roared past us, both coming and going, until the i engine made that funny little noise that gives the driver a sinking feeling. Then, for forty straight minutes, not a tin gle headlight have in sight, from any direction. If the silence hadn't been so profane, it would have been impres sive. There was a ghost of a moon, but it was such a faint ghost that the long road back to the city and gasoline w'asn t illuminated in the least. The poet may sing of the joys of motoring, and he may mean it but no man ever talks the same about riding in an automobile if be has been for getful of the gasoline tank and no one has reminded him of it We looked at that tank. We had to open up the car's cellar door and unscrew the lid, and we got grease all over our other shirt while we were doing it. The lid un screwed hard. We remember that just as plain. There isn t a doubt but that we looked at the tank just before we started. It looked to be half full. We didn't take the little ruler and poke down to find out we peered inside and it seemed to have lots of gas. Afterward, we discovered that the flivver had been going two days on a gallon of gas. Looking back on it, it seems marvelous but at the time we didn't stop to think of the wonderful record that had been made. Rather we spoke harshly to Henry. And we cussed other things in the same bit ter tone and the identical frame of mind. See the School Dresses shown for $1.29. at IlighlaiuMIolIoway Co. There's nothing more disheartening than to wait on a dark night for an automobile to show up. True, one can always walk, but the prospect of shoving our two hundred pounds over five miles of a strange road didn't ap peal to us in the least There have been times when we walked for the pure love of exercise, but we never take that sort of exercise at 10:45 p, m. on a Btrange road. Succor hove in sight from both di rections at the same time. From the road leading from the city came a headlight From behind us came hree headlights. Strange as it may seem, there we actually thiee of them. I hen we made an astounding discovery, and one that pleased us. The folks who drive automobiles are human, especial ly those if we say so without egotism especially those who drive Fords. The man comitij - f torn the city was the first to perceive our plight. He was driving a flivver. He stopped and took us under his protecting wing. Within three minutes the other three cars came up. The first one got perhaps ten feet behind us, but he halted and wanted to know if there were anything he could do. Then he saw our friend in need and shoved otT. The next car, only fifty yards behind him, stopped also, and the same ques tion was asked and the same reply given. Even the third car, which had seen two others refused with effusive tenderness, also stopped. MINISTER DISCUSSES HIS WIFE'S TROUBLES Rev. A. H. Skves. former pastor of the Watkin Park Presbyterian church Na.hville, Tenn., says : "After seeing what Tanlac has ac complished in my wife's case, I am convinced that it is a medicine of great power and extraordinary merit. I do not think I have ever seen anything rive such prompt results. Mrs. Sykes has been in delicate health for ten months suffering from stomach trou ble anil nervous breakdown. "I frequently sought medical adice but Tanlac is the only thing tlu.t gave her any relief. After taking the rned'cine only a short time. i;he vrs nble to sit up and help with he house hold duties. I think it only a short time until her health will be fully restored." Tanlac is sold in Alliance by F. E. Holsten and by all good druggists everywhere. That's the wonderful thing about the present day motorist. The same fellow who will make you eat his dust: who will hog the road or push you un erringly toward the ditch; who will use glaring headlights and fret not a bit how blinded you are the same villain will stop cheerfully if he sees you in a mud hole or stranded by the wayside. When he is passing you or throwing dust in your direction, you are sure that you can see the horns poking out from underneath his hat. When he helps you, you realize that what you thought was the tip of a horn was only part of a halo. ELASTIC SCHEDULE. In th old davs of Mississippi River travel, the Stephen J. Hill gained note a the worst boat on the river. One afternoon a fog settled and the captain gave orders to tie up for the rest of the day. "It's too bad we're going to be late, captain," said a passenger. 'We aint," retorted the skipper calmly. "But I thought you were going to tie up here for hours." "So we are, but that ain't going to make us Jate. We don t run so close to time as all that." American Legion Weekly. It isn't every man who can master Ms pleasures. Many a fellow attempts to ride a bucking holby. You can't h're a man to le as nice to you as the fellow who takes pity on your motoring sorrows and stops to help you out. lhe young fellow we got hold of was a young farmer, prob ably coming in from seeing his girl We hope so, whether this be the case or not. lhat fellow was nice enough to have half a dozen gn.s. it was growing tolerably late for a man who observes the ungodly hours of rising that we are told prevail on the farms. but he duln t act as though he cared whether he ever slept or not. We ivmted gasoline, find he cheer fully donned a raincoat and crawled i under his car to turn on the stopcock, if tlu't is the expression we want to use. We dug up a tin can and held it under the stream of gas for five min ules, and then discovered that the bot tom of thecan was a mass of tiny holes, and that it couldn't be made to hold gas without at least three sticks of chewing gum. One quart of pre cious gas was wasted this way. Then he suggested towing us in, but there was no tow handy. Finally, he took the family and us to the city, waited while we got some gas, took us back and stood there while we filled up. We would have fallen on his neck and wept, but with a cheery wave of the hand he was gone gone, while our ALLIANCE MEN ATTEND COUPLE ROAD MEETINGS (Continued from Tcge 1) Following the Broadwater meeting, the Alliance delegation proceeded to Sidney, where the second meeting was held.. This was a North Star high way meeting. The Alliance men en deavored to preserve their neutrality, and took no active part in the meeting, but the delegates present proceeded to elect J. S. Rhein, already a vice president on the G-P-C highway, as president of their organization, altho he refused the crown two or three times, both before and after his elec tion. Finally, the Alliance men convinced the Sidney people that the Ktumbling block was the Morrill county commis sioners, and that so long as the dead lock remained, it was hopeless to get any route approved. A meeting was arranged for Bridgeport on Friday, at which time the effort will be macje to have the three Morrill commissioners present and arrive at some approved route through which the highway can pass. A big delegation will go down from Alliance Friday, and this city will again endeavor to make its posi tion clear and will emphasize the fact that it does not want to mix into Mor rill county battles. It is hoped that the deadlock can be ended Friday and some route be approved. Meet at Chadron Wednesday Tomorrow a meeting will be held at Chadron, the next point north on both the rival highways. .This will be sim ply an organization meeting, with delegates present from Broadwater, Alliance, Hot Springs and other places along the route. The Broadwater delegation will arrive in Alliance at 9 a. rri. and accompany the Alliance men. The Bridgeport meeting will be the big event of the week, and it is ex pected that a hot fight will ensue. Both Broadwater and Bridgeport have ex pressed the. belief that Alliance will side in with them, although this coun ty and city have for two years ex pressed themselves as willing to meet any road that will be built from the south to the county line. - It is reported, also, that a number of ranchers in the county to the south are opposed to a highway going through their property, saying that it will result in damages to them by rea son of gates left open, littered grounds and depredations by tourists. It is said they will have a lawyer present to represent their interests. After the Bridgeport meeting Fri day, however, there should be no further difficulties. If the three com missioners will get together and se lect one route, even if they have to toss up a coin or draw straws, all western Nebraska will feel better over it. The following men will make the trip to Chadron tomorrow; J. S. Khein, Ed Henry. W. B. Barnett. J. W Guthrie, Glen Miller, Charles Brittan, r. j. urennan, f rank Abegg, -John Wiker.jF. W.
