HAD A TRUCK LOAD OF SOAP Started From Factory at Philadelphia and Average of 100 Miles Per Day Made so Far. Averaging more than 100 miles a day and traveling often over steep hills and through roads of sand, soft earth and gumbo, an Alco truck, en gaged in the first transcontinental de livery of motor freight, is breaking all records en route to Petaluma, Cali. It passed through Denison on Wednes day last, and those in charge were in the best of spirits. Up to this time the vehicle has ad hered closely to its schedule and has averaged twelve miles an hour on the run. It carries complete equipment for battling with bad roads and build ing its own roads when none exist. The apparatus includes block and tackle, jacks, skid boards, windlasses and other articles. Since leaving Cleveland the truck has received many severe tests to mo tor, frame and other parts. Between Cleveland and Toledo it had to plow for many miles through deep sand, soft earth and "rough and ready" hummocks. The run for the day was 123 miles. Between Toledo and Edg erton, Ohio, a heavy rain storm forced the crew to drive carefully. The roads were muddy and travel was difficult. E. L. Ferguson, an official in Glid den tours and other national motor ing events, is accompanying the truck. He reports that roads were consider ably better than a year ago and that every bridge was strong enough to hold the truck loaded to capacity. The building of new roads has forced the truck to side paths at numerous times, thereby making the trip longer and harder than was anticipated. De spite these obstacles, however, the truck, has been unloaded and loaded only once to get through. The vehicle has passed through six states since it started from the fac tory of its owners, Charles W. Young & Co., of Philadelphia, with a cargo of soap for the Carlson Currier com pany silk mills of Petaluma, Cali., thirty-five miles north of San Fran cisco.

DEATH OF JUDGE ADDISON OLIVER Prominent Monona County Citizen Is Called to His Reward After a Two Months' Illness. CALLED THE "GRANGER JUDGE." Came From Keokuk to Western Iowa on Horseback—Made School House Campaign for Lincoln One of the oldest and best known men of Monona county, Judge Addi son Oliver, died at his home at Ona wa last week. Mr. Oliver had been ill for two months, typhoid fever being the complaint. He had been a resi dent of Onawa since 1858 and during that time he has proven not only a benefactor to his home town, but the Missouri and Sioux river bottoms for miles have felt the worth of his helping hand by reason of his ad vocacy of every movement for the reclaiming of its fertile acres from being swept by spring floods and freshets and the "Big Ditch" move ment in Monona was due principally to his work and advocacy. In poli tics Judge Oliver was known as the "Granger Judge" and he was chos en the first circuit judge for the Fourth judicial district which was or ganized in 1868 and which embraced twenty-two counties. In 1874 he was chosen congressman from the big Ninth district and served in the for ty-fourth and forty-fifth congresses. Judge Oliver made his entry into western Iowa by riding horseback across the state from Keokuk to Ser geant Bluffs where he taught school one year. He was married in 1858, but for thirty years he has been a widower. He is survived by four sons and three daughters. In 1860 Judge Oliver made a school house canvass of his district in the interests of Abraham Lincoln for pres ident and in 1864 was selected and at tended the national convention in Baltimore that renominated Lincoln for president. In innumerable ways he has been a benefactor to the town of Onawa. He established a manual training school in his home town a number of years ago and endowed it with a fund of $10,000 and was the means of estab lishing Onawa's handsome public li brary and its building, first by the gift of books and secondly by mak ing it possible to obtain a Carnegie gift for a library by donating him self $20,000 toward its establishment, PAGE THREET and it will prove the greatest monu ment that could have been erected to his memory in the years to come. A Pitiful Wail. Heard just outside the city limits, where father and son were stalled at 2 a. m. Father, dear father, come home with me now, The clock on the dashboard strikes one. Don't fuss with the car any longer,„ papa, You can't get the old tub to run.. The cylinder is cracked and the tim er won't work, And mother's been waiting since tea, So tether the car to a post, father, dear, And come home on the trolley witk me. Father, dear father, come home with me now, The speedometer clock is striking two, The night has grown colder, the rear tire's flat, And mother may fret about you. The cam shaft is twisted, the pump's out of gear, Perhaps before morning shall dawn, Mamma may grow angry and want a divorce, Come quickly, or she may be gone. Father, dear father, come home with me now, The clock's striking three—it's struck out. Don't fool any more with magneto and coil. The wires have grounded, no doubt. Jever Try Water?
