Through an unintentional over
sight mention of the music at the
Catholic church on the occasion of
the funeral of the late J. V. Egen
berger was omitted. The music was
beautiful and well suited to the
solemn occasion. As is usual In serv
ices at this church, the "Requiem"
for the dead was sung, adding very
much to the solemnity of the serv
ices. In addition to this, Conrad
Schlater, the aged friend of the
deceased, sang that beautiful sacred
solo, "Flee as a Bird." Much af
fected at the loss of his old friend,
Mr. Schlater could not conceal the
emotion which he felt and his voice
shook as he sang the beautiful
words of this sacred melody. Miss
Helen Kline also sang the solo
"Face to Face" her splendid voice
giving the beautiful words excellent
rendition and adding greatly to the
sacredness and dignity of the occas
ion. The final music was the "Mise
rere" marking the solemn end of
the services as required by the Ro
man Catholic church.

Poisoned His Hand.
J. J. Koubek, who is employed in
the brass foundry at the Burlington
shops, is carrying a very bad hand
around with him today, the result of
poisoning yesterday. Mr. Koubek
had the misfortune to run a sliver in
his hand yesterday morning, but
gave it no attention. The splinter
penetrated his hand about half an
inch. He went on about his work
and along in the afternoon he first
noticed that the hand was com
mencing to swell up. In a very short
time it was badly swollen and he
hurled to a physician who pronounc
ed the hand infected. It Is presumed
some of the poisonous materials
around the shop were responsible
for this. Immediate steps were
taken to counteract the poisoning,
and today he is laying off nursing
the hand. It may be several days
before he will be able to return to
work. He is not thought to be in
dangerous shape, but a little longer
delay would have been more than

it only J needed one thing more to

Haller, who happened to come in on
the morning train, grasped the sit
uation and telephoned for a can of
Ice cream, which arrived and which
she served from a flower decorated
table in the back parlor, and was
highly appreciated by the old folks
on the hottest day of the season.
Mrs. Haller, like her venerated
father, is always planning pleasant
surprises. Yesterday 6he came to
complete the sanitary rest room,
which she had provided for the com
fort ol the sick, and to bring a music
box, presented by her daughter
Marion, which when wound up
plays old-time melodies so much
loved by us old folks. Many return

healthfully complete your full cpn.

A Water Spout.
A large number of people, during
the threatened storm yesterday aft
ernoon, witnessed a very peculiar
thing In the sky, north of the city.
A long cloud formed and seemed to
reach down to the earth, and wa
funnel shaped and remained nearly
twenty minutes. Before it broke up
and disappeared another appeared
east of it, but was much smaller.
These two clouds seemed to b
either water spouts or small cy
clones. They are the first we have
witnessed this summer. Nebraska

TO emphasize the difference between fictitious sales
and a real "value giving" sale like ours, we urge
you to direct your earnest attention to the following
guarantee, which operates throughout the entire sales
period, now well underway practi
"Buy a suit of clothes from us and sec the
same kind for less money in any other retail
clothing house show us and we will refund
to you, IN CASH, not only the difference in
price, but double that amount."
There is no Question n
about ti e guarantee of quality, style, etc. Hart,
Schaffncr & Marx label or your own knowledge of
clothing covers that situation, in a general way at
least. But when you are led into a store by the bait
of a $35.00 suit for $14.50 and you buy what as
surance have you that you could not have bought the
same identical garment for less money elsewhere?
Our guarantee protects you unconditionally.
