Every light is started with an electric spark, which does away with the use of matches, and also makes it impossible to open a gas jet without the gas being ignited at the tip. This machine makes gas just as it is needed and posi tively no more. This it m alone is a great saving over other machines that have a different style of mixing, which leaves a quantity of gas in the resivoir, which loses its burning qual ities the longer it stands. Gas from this machine can be run to any of our out buildings. This is absolutely the only machine that is giving perfect satisfaction at all times and under all conditions with out any extra expense after installation. This machine can be seen any time at our store. O A 0 n f KB PLUMBING! HEATING! 0 HARDWARE! Acording to the latest returns from the Arizona election it would seem that the democrats hint captured everything in sight Thai indicates that everything is poing the right way. :o; The complaint is made that President Tail's message was not properly listened to.

Preliminary maneuvers In bringing the leu indicted Chicago beef packers to trial havo cost the government $710,000. Under the circumstances tho packers must not be astonished if the court is severe and linos them several thousand dollars. :: Don't you know thai the people ho buy their supplies of the borne merchant always feel more Joyful than those who go to Oma ha? Now, you uolico the man mho tomes in on the train with packages under his arms, and if he doesn't feel like ho had done something that he ought not lo have done wc will give you our head for a football. It Is simply a notion that goods can bo bought io Omaha cheaper than in Plaits- mouth that's all. I'or a period of several weeks before Christmas a large force of recruits assembles in Sundav school and studies with en Ihusiasm the doings of llabakkuk and Melchiscdck. Theodore Roosevelt, jr., Pacific coast manager for a carpel firm, has had a salary raise. The fact that he neither writes for the papers nor lakes photographs probably counted in his favor. :o The Hyde trial al Kansas City has come suddenly to a standstill all on account of the disappear ance of one of the jurymen. And if he can't bo found they will havo to commence nil over again. :o: Santa Clans has lo take so much time now fixing himself up with asbestos whiskers and other modern improvements that he may not get around to make the usual number of gifts. :o: Congressman Dies of Texas de nounces the dollar-a-day pension bill as a $50,000,000 campaign contribution, and accuses con gross of cowardice- in the matter Heing from Texas it is very easy for Dies to bo brave on the sub jeel of pensions. :o: Paul Clark is a standpatter of the worst type, and tho repub lican insurgents nro trying to get out a candidato against him for tho nomination. Therefore, Paul is not likely to have everything his own way. Watch lhe Journal for Christ mas otl'orings. The merchant who has the goods always wants the people to know what he lias in store for them. Uy a glance over this paper before coming to town, will save you much trouble in finding the store that has just what you are looking for. :o: There is a gentleman ami scholar out in Nuckolls county whose record is as bright as a newly made silver dollar and one f the ablest men in the state, who would make an ideal candidate for governor. His name is 11. I). Sutherland, lie is an able lawyer, as served two terms in congress, nd, all in all, is a grand, good man, beloved hv all who know him. A man of this character can be elected governor of Nebraska, but he does not desire to get. up a big strife for the nomination. :o : The next local event of iniport- inee, aside from the usual holi- lay festivities, is the band con- ert, and this is something that none of our people should lose sight of. The boys are practicing twice a week regularly for,, lhe event, nmf it is an occasion that is worthy of the support of every citizen. We should, and no doubt lo, all of us feel a great pride in our band and a desire also to aid them in every possible way. These concerts, lhe first one of which will be given on Thursday night, December L'H, al the. Parmele theater, are given for the sole purpose of buying uniforms for o boys, and rather than solicit amounts from individual business men, they have concluded to give series of concerts during the winter, in which everyone can add their little mite by purchasing tickets and attending these con certs, every one of which will be more than worth the admission price. Remember,' the first, con cert takes place Thursday night, December 28. :o: In going up High school hill the other day with a little tot going to school, she asked me the ques tion: "Do you think there is a Santa Clans?" I looked at the little girl a moment, and then wanted to know who told her there was no Santa Claus, and she re plied that one of the big girls told her going home from school one day. So many children in this day and age have gotten this idea into their heads. Hut there is a Sanla Clans. He exists ns cer tainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know they I abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas How dreary would be tho world i there were no Sanla Claus? It would be as dreary as. if there were no little, girls and boys. There would be no child-like faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished. No, don't tell the children there is no Santa Claus. -:o:- IM0T LIVING IN THE PAST. The Lincoln News is smacking ils chops over the trouble it eagerly anticipates in the demo cratic party because of Hie Met calfe candidacy for governor. II takes particular pains lo remind the 'Dahlman camp" (hat Met calfe bulled Mayor Dahlman'sj .rn.li,.w.t- ('..,.

In fact, Mr, Hryan put himself out, in the recent campaign, to let a great many good democrats who op posed county option know that he has no furl her fight to wage against them on that account. The prospect, in a word, would seem to be for harmony and not discord in the democratic parly. There will bo sharp contests for the nominations, naturally, since next year's prospects look so good. Hut these differences caused by ennllielitiK ambitions are always a hopeful rather than a discouraging sign. World-Herald. sable and ideal fur the use of chil dren, old folks and delicate per sons.

At toll same lime the Slate ourual, morning edition of the News, hastens lo proclaim that olm Moi'chead, another demo- ralic candidate for governor, isi not a "progressive" or Hryan stylo of democrat." while the News dovetails in the added in formation thai the candidacy of these two eminent democrats means that the democratic party will again be divided over the liquor question, with Metcalfe 'presenting tho "Hryan wing." These thoughts, it may bo re marked, most likely havo no father but a wish. The Journal uid News, like republicans gen- rally, continue to live in tho past. Die democrats, content to let the dead past bury ils dead, with their faces turned toward the dawn, arc iving in the present. Attached to the Metcalfe petition are tho names of several democrats who supported Dahlman for governor, and conspicuous in the list, too, is the name of the distinguished chief bartender at that famous "bartenders' reunion" at Grand Island. As to whether there is any onger a "Hryan wing" to the liquor question, wo aro not at all sure. As wo understand it, Mr. Hryan now takes precisely the position that was taken by the Clrnnd Island convention, and be lieves that this annoying problem should bo settled under the in itiative and referendum, and that meant imo it has no placo in party politics. Mr. Hryan, therefore, in stead of being a "wing" of his own, has fallen in lino with his party on this issue. As to John Morehead not being a "progressive," he was accounted a mighty good democrat by Mr. Hryan for twenty years, until the liquor quarrel came up. His home in Falls City was often Hryan's headquarters. In tho lalo i A Statement of Facts Backed by a Strong Guarantee. We guarantee immediate and positive relief to all sufferers from constipation.

Amick, who returned from Arkansas a few days ago, was in the city yesterday evening, and in conversation with him he tells us that bo believes it is the coming country, and purchased a good farm of 225 acres, and expects to move thereto just as soon as pos sible for him to close up business mailers bore.

William firobo, the genial deputy game warden, injured his left, hand quite severely Tuesday by having il pinched between two heavy barrels.
