Omaha, Neb., March 2,—A late
schemje of higjh finance developed
last week in which William Thrane
from the corn fed belt of Nebraska
was the victim of a scheming gentle-
man who sold him the street grading
outfit being used in the excavating of
A description af the enormous in-
come being derived monthly from the
rental of the grading outfit tempted
Mr. Thrane and he invested to the
amount of five $100 Liberty bonds
and $200 in cash.
Mr. Thrane's version of his fren-
zied plunge to reap a fortune came
to light when he attempted to dis-
miss one of the men working with
the street grading outfit, which he
claimed was "laying down
"Go G*t Your Money."
The man who was approached bv
Mr. Thrane was told to f t hi>checV|

Thrane. 'The man says he owns so
many of these outfits that the gov-
ernment claims he is a trust, so he
had to sell this outfit.

ROUSSEAU LEAVES TODAY
FOR SHAWNEE MEETING
Rc\. G. J. Rousseau, pastor of the
First Baptist church, leaves today for
Shawnee to attend the country
church conference of the Baptist
church in Oklahoma.
The purpose of this meeting is to
obtain better conditions in the rural
districts of the state, according to
Rev. Rousseau. Subjects will be dis-
cussed that will bear on the improve-
ment of the rural communities and
A number of prominent Baptists
from all over the United States will
be at the meeting and take part in
the discussion, he said.
Fortunes are not made by loafing
on the street corners and making
suggestive remarks about women
who pass by. But reputations arc
of a kind.
\re the moral* of this natio.. in a
late of rapid decline? One is in-
clined to tlrnk so, from the mass of
disgusting details served up daily by
the city newspapers. The city cir-
culation of today depends to a con
sulcrable extent upon the amount of
•ensationalism the editor can crowd
had control of a great number of'into hi. pages. Legitimate news ar-
these outfit - and that when they dug tides are the last to be read.

Maxwell is economical transportation.
They had to be strong because the K .axvvdi is built
to carry just as heavy " passenger load over the same
roads and at the same sp ,1 as any car, despite its
price or size.
Any engineer will tell you that in getting that rare
combination of strength with lightness high prices
must be paid for the metals.
Their use, however, repays the makers ol the
