COST OF LIVING
Matter of Fllteen Cents per Scrape
Is Being Agitated.
For some days past the matter of
establishing the price of a shave at
fifteen cents has occupied the minds
of some of the tonsorial fraternity.
Therefore a representative of this
paper called upon a number of the
workmen of the city, both propri
etors and others, and also engaged
with the patrons to some extent re
garding their feelings in the matter.
At the first shop visited we found
a number of people in, and all ex
pressed themselves favorably. The
proprietor said that when he was first
married a few years ago, he was able
to buy eggs at three dozen for a

The artist at the fourth shop said
that he had given the matter very
little thought, but he knew that "two
years since when I la gan the business
here for myself 1 bouidit a broom for
twenty cents, and the other day I
had tfi pay forty for the same article."
At the fifth shop visited, the pro
prietor said: "On the subject I have
nothing to say. I charged fifteen
,('nts f"r liavi! X for some six months
ami i ne remainder oi tne unite in
the city did not think enough of the
matter to do anything, therefore I
shall have nothing to say untill nil
the rest have (expressed themselves
and are sure what they want, then I
will tell you what I think about it."
The next place the . workmen were
partners, and the first to speak said:
"I think for my part that we should
have fifteen cents, ami if the remain
der are th. i ..n.' n;.';iio:i, I think
we should charge it. " iiis partner
said: "The price of fifteen cents is
surely low enough, but I do not think
the trade will stand for it. One-half

maining half would do the same thing,
and then the barbers would not work
in unison in the matter, as some could
not be induced to stay with an agree
ment, and I know, having had some
experience with them."
The last one to be interviewed,
said: "I do not think it right. It
is true we should have more for our
work, but the fact is, the people
upon whom we depend for a living
are the men who work in the shops,
and they do not get enough now to
make a decent living themselves
with the prices of other things as
high as they are, and I would not have
the heart to increase their burdens.
I would not object to charging the
others fifteen cents, but the man who
works foi a living as do the shop men,
' fifteen ecu; i too much."

Death of W. L. Street Takes
Prominent Man From
BRIEF HISTORY OF
AN EVENTFUL LIFE
a Patient Sullerer For
Number of Months.
William Lewis Street was born
at Bristol, Pennsylvania, March 10,
1811, where he lived during his early
manhood with his parents. He was
too young to enlist in the army until
the last call for volunteers, and he
then spent six months in service with
the l-".Mh Illinois.
His family moved from Bristol,
Penna., to Wenona, Ills., in lN,"i.",
where his aged father, a brother and
a sister still reside.
lb was married to Mary Amelia
McCulloch at Hutland, Ills, ,)an. 7,
1S1 where they made their home
until 1.S7-1, in which year they came
to b'ed Oak, Iowa, remaining there
until the spring of INNS, when they
moved to Weeping Water, Neb. In
the soring ot l.v.i.i thev took up their
resilience in Plattsniouth, where for
the past fourteen years they have made
their home, Mr. Street being identi
fied with the business interests of the
city- representing the Singer Sewing
Machine Co. in Cass county.
Three children and five grandchil
dren survive him. His children are
Walter W. Street, Hastings, Neb.,
Mrs. Mae S. Morgan, Plattsniouth,
and Mrs. Hilt Wescott, Plattsniouth.
His father, Mr". .Jonathan Street,
who is past !t() years of age, resides at
Wcnoiin, Ills. Four brothers and two
sisters also survive him, Alon.o Street
of Wenona, Ills.; Amos Street of
Sioux City, Iowa; Joseph Street of
I.eniars, Iowa; Charles Street of
Bio ;;riington, Ills; Clara Street of
Wenona, Ills, and Mrs. Lucy Tisdale
of Slayton, Minn.
Mr. Streets bicin.ss took him into
many of the hones of the city and
county, and his was one of the most
familiar faces upon our streets He
had a wide acquaintance among tin1
people of the county, and was perhaps
as well known throughout its limits as
any resident enjoying the unques
tioned friendship of all who knew
He was always cordial, genial to all,
and greeted everyone with a smile and
word of good cheer. He uttered no
complaint and his life was one which
spoke of optimism, hope and faith
in his fellow man.
Failing health, caused by a com
plaint from which he had hgn a pa
tient sufferer for years, necessitated
his removal to the Immanuel hospital
in November, l'JON, where he remained
for a period of fourteen weeks. The
operation and treatment at this time
brought a great measure of relief to
him, and until the past month he has
enjoyed comparative health, moving
about among his friends, neighbors
and business associates with the same
kind spirit as formerly.
About two weeks ago he sustained
a fall, anil this together with the ef
fects of a cold contracted, necessitated
his removal to the hospital for treat
ment on Dec. !)th. His weakened con
dition would not permit of a second
operation, and he gradually failed
until death relieved him at 7 o'clock
Monday morning, Dec. -Oth.
His family had spent the day on
Sunday with him, ami his wife was
Jat his bedside at the time of his death.
The funeral will be held Wednesday
morning. Dec. at s :.'!((, from his
;late residence. The remains will be
taken to lied Oak, Iowa, for burial.
Mr. Street was a member of the
II A. I!., Modern Woodmen of Aincr
1 ica, and the Fraternal I'nion. lie
