Reach the Shore.
Ora E. I'hillins and W. F. Brook of
Heminpford, Neb., escaped uninjured
hen their airplane plunged into Yel-i
lowrtone lake in Yellowstone park
Wednesday, according to word receiv
ed here. They landed in f hallow
water and were able to reach shore
without difficulty.
ThiR wan the first plane to land
within the park boundaries. Congress
tian not made any regulations relative
to the entrance of flying craft and
park officials are at a Ion as to how to
collect entrance fees for it.
Authorities at the park Paid yester
day they opposed landing of planes in
side the grounds, claiming they would
frighten the animals.
Brooks is the flier who was arrested
in Omaha last fall for "jawing" his
plane up and down Famam street,
praxing the tall buildings and calling
down the wrath of the gods.
The pofifeAFion of a Ford and the

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
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

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.

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.

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
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.
