Brief Sketch of the Successful As
pirant for Congressional Honors.
JOHN A. MAGUIRE.
John A. Maguire came to Lincoln
thirteen years ago as a student of the
the university uf Nebraska and has
since lived here.
He is one of a family of eight child
ren and was born thirty-four years ago
near Galena, 111., but was transplanted
as a boy with his parents into the rough
life of a government homestead near
Mitchill, S. D. He worked on the farm
during the summer and attended the
district school in the winter months.
He is therefore a western product, and
is a pioneer and the son of a pioneer
family. The development of a new
country occasioned many hardships and
his struggle has always been against
odds. His energy, perseverence and
force of character has always brought
him success in every line.
He entered and graduated from the
Iowa agricultural college and then en
tered the university of Nebraska and
graduated from the academic course in
1898 and law iu 1899. Mr. Maguire
taught school and instructed in normal
institutes during the vacations of his
course in college. He was one year
superintendent of the city schools of
Salem, S. D. During his college days
he defrayed his expenses by work while
a student in school. In college he was
foremost in all college activities and is
i one of the best known graduates of the
university having represented the in
stitution on several occasions in inter
collegiate debate and held many posi
tions of trust and honor. He was pres
ident of the alumni association in 1904.
Mr. Maguire was deputy treasurer of
Lancaster county in 1900 and 1901 and
immediately entered the practice of law
in Lincoln where he is now in the prac
tice. Mr. Maguire was sent as a delegate
in 1904 from this district to the demo
cratic national convention at St. Louis
and has always been a loyal supporter
of Mr. Bryan.
Mr. Maguire has been active in pro
gressive policies and in the civic and
moral welfare of his city and state.
He has never been connected with in
terests which are likely to conflict with
the interests of the public. Those who
know him best insist that few men
have ever entered public life freer
from promises or unfavorable alliance?,
and it has been insisted by him that
no promises were ever made to anyone
by him during the campaign except to
the whole people and through his plat
form and public addresses,
i He has been chairman of the demo
cratic county committee and was one
year secretary of the state committee.
He has never been allied with party
factions but has always been an inde
pendent active party member.
He is an active member of several
social, educational and fraternal so
cieties. Lincoln Journal.

John McNurlin and wife, and W. H.
and A. F. Seybert came in this morn

led by the death of Mrs. A. C. Seybert.
The funeral of the lamented lady was
held yesterday at Dunbar and was
largely attended, as she was justly
esteemed as one of the finest of women.

To Mr. J. I!. Thrasher, Platts
Dear Sir: You ask how many square
feet a gallon will cover. Depends on
condition of the building.
There is a great deal of lying on this
point. The stock claim of lying paints
is 300 square feet, two coats. It's a
lie, as a rule.
Devoe covers 300 to 500, our agents
think. We think 300 too low and 500
too high; though boubtless, they both
How much the other paints cover is
equally doubtful; we guess 100 to 400.
The truth is found in another com
parison. Devoe is all paint, true paint,
strong paint, and full-measuie; the
others in general are, at the best, dilut
ed, adulterated and shortmeasure. They
cover according to body and measure.
You can't paint with clay lime chalk
sand barytes water or air no body in
them. Go by Devoe.

A Unique Piece of Work.
One of the most novel and unique
pieces of window dressing in the city,
is that of Dovey's. H. S. Austin the
window dresser, selected as a model a
fine cathederal in New York City, and
with the aid of boxes of corests has
made a very interesting specimen of
work. The boxes have been so piled
together as to give a very fair idea of
what the building looks like. Some of
the boxes are filled with corests while
there are numerous empty ones. A
prize of twenty-five dollars in trade is
offered for the person guessing the cor
rect number of each kind of boxes.
Seven Years of Proof.
"I have had seven years of proof
that Dr. King's New Discovery is the
best medicine to take for coughs and
cold? and for every diseased condition
of throat, chest or lungs," says W. V.
Henry of Panama, Mo. The world has
had thirty-eight, years of proof that
Dr. King's New Discovery is the best
remedy for coughs and colds, la grippe,
asthma, hay fever, bronchitis, hemor
rhage of the lungs, and the early stages
of consumption. Its timely use always
prevents the development of pneumo

. FANCER, the Department Store Man.
In looking over our stock we iinJ
that w are heavily overloaded at
this season of the year. The late
election excitement has to a certain
tleRree retarded all business of the
entire country, and as our purchases
have been heavy, we find our stock is
comparatively unbroken, hence we
wish to announce that we will with
in a few days inaugurate one of the
Greatest Realizing Sales ever held
in Cass county.
Our line was never greater in each
and every department. Our millin
ery department contains more new
and up-to-date ladies, misses and
children's head wear than ever be
fore, and the prices that we are
going to make in this line will be
far below anything you have ever
heard of in fact your price will be
ours. We must reduce this line,
as the season is rapidly drawing to a
close. Our line of Wooltex Tailored
garments for ladies and misses is
greater this season than ever be
fore, and all will be included in this
great realizing sale. The Wooltex
goods are always the best, and when
you see a stylishly dressed lady
passing, just note the fact that she
will be-dressed in a Wooltex gar
ment, and one of Fanger's stylishly

Tin I'iano Contest.
In giving away the fine $4 5
piano with all cash purchases. We
have heard some people remark that
Fanger could not possibly give any
such an article without increasing
the price of the goods in proportion.
In order to convince some that this
is not true, we are going to give
one of the greatest sacrificing sales
ever heard of in Cass county, and
still with every cash purchase give
the piano coupons. This will con
vince all that the piano is absolutely
given away. This contest will close
Christmas week, and someone will
win this fine instrument, some in
dividual or school or society. it
does seem as though a city of 5,006
people would put up a more active
fight to win this piano than they
are doing, and npt permit a lone In
dividual to win the same without
some greater opposition than he is
The Department Store has always
maintained the reputation of doing;
just as they advertise. When we an
nounce a bargain sale, we mean It,
and the goods will tell the story.
