Miss Marie Kaufman of this
city is the inventor of a mos
beautiful, as well as useful article
in the Kaufman Nurse Pin. This
pin is to be worn by the trainei
nurses when not in uniform am
will make a badge that will be neat
and at the same lime serve as the
emblem of their profession. The
pin is of a very unique and hand
some design and is surrounded by
a gold border intertwined with a
red enameled line encircling an
engraved portrait of the nurse in
white and blue. Thus the national
colors are employed in the de
sign of the pin. The pin combines
great simplicity and strength, as
well as beauty. This emblem Jills
a long-felt want and should be
adopted at once by the trained
nurses throughout the country as
a badge of their noble calling.

which proved a most enjoyable
affair. Mrs. Stephen Davis of

it known that she would be there.
She made a very charming talk.

From Tuesday's Daily.
There was considerable trouble
caused by the soldiers again last
night in this city. There were a
number of the soldiers in the
saloon of Peter Goos, and one of
the men tried to pick a quarrel
with the proprietor, who paid no
attention to him. The man took
a pair of brass "knucks" out of
his pocket and laid them where he
could reach them in had
an oportunity to use them on Mr.
Goos. Another party standing by
picked them up and placed them
in his pocket and later turned
them over to Sheriff Quinton, who
had been summoned by Mr. Goos.
The soldier left before the ar
rival of the sheriff, and entered
Ed Donat's saloon, where he was
soon involved in a mix-up with
two other soldiers. Chief of Police
Ben Ilainey, assisted by Policeman
Trout and Sheriff Quinton, took
them in hand and escorted them
to the jail, where they remained
until the authorities from the rifle
range called for them.when two
of the men were turned over to
them, but the man who had want-

Yesterday afternoon Professor
and Mrs. II. S. Austin were in
Glenwood, where they gave a most
delightful program before the
Woman's club of that city, which
greatly pleased the audience. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Austin are gifted
with splendid voices and it is al

part, and the Glenwood ladies
should feel well pleased that they
secured them for their meeting.
Mrs. William A. Robertson was
the accompanist for Mr. and Mrs.

State Fire Commissioner Calls At
tention to Danger of Ac
cumulated Rubbish.
, Chief Deputy Fire Commission
er Randall has issued a circular
letter to city councils and citizens
generally in which he calls atten
tion to the danger caused by the
accumulation of rubbish at this
time of the year.' In this connec
tion, Mr. Randall says:
I desire to call your attention
to the necessity of removing
everything of a combustible na
ture from basements, outbuildings
and lots so that a disastrous fire
will not be caused by spontaneous
combusion or from sparks from
chimneys coming in contact with
combustible material that is be
ing permitted to accumulate in
alleys,, and on lots in the several
yvns in trie siaie. it. is.surpris-
ing how many business men seem
to lose sight of I he fact that this
worthless accumulation of trash
may be the cause of great damage
to them and possibly their neigh
bors, when a little care and small
amount of labor will entirely re
move a possibility of a loss from
this source.
In several cases in going into
the various towns of the slate we
11 ml excelsior, paper, hay, straw,
rags and other accumulations
mixed in with grass, weeds nnd
sunflowers; the weeds and sun
flowers have been killed by the
frost and are as inllammabln as
I he material that has accumulated
in and around them, and it hiakes
the conditions very dangerous.
City councils and citizens should
see to it at once that, all danger
ous and inflammable rubbish is
cleaned up, removed and destroy
ed before they have brought about
the destruction of a large amount
of valuable property and possibly
human life. Do not forget that
"procrastination may cause a
conflagration," ami that it is bet
ter to spend a few moments in re
moving the cause than to spend a
life lime of regrets for neglect
ing it.

The Entire County Democratlo
Ticket Elected Senator
Banning Is Defeated.
From W'euncsday'ii Dally.
Yesterday was certainly a day
of triumph for the democracy of
the whole nation from the Atlantic
to the Pacific, and Nebraska was
one of the foremost in the ranks
of the state contributing to
democratic success.
John II. Morehead for governor
is running like a race horse all
over the state and his plurality
will be 20,01)0 or better.
Congressman Maguire has re
ceived a magnificent vote
throughout the First district and
will be returned to congress by
a majority of from HOO to 1,000,
and it is a most just, approval of
the splendid record made by Mr.
Maguire in congress.
One' matter of regret is the de
feat of Senator Banning, as he
was one of the strong men in the
last two legislatures and filled the
position of state senator with
great credit, to himself and to Cass
county and deserved to be return
ed to the ofllce which he had filled
so well. He received a very flat
tering vote in the county, but
could not overcome the majority
against him in Otoe county.
In the county results the. demo
crats can be greatly gratified over
the outcome, as they made almost
a clean sweep or the ollices, the
only two offices won by the repub
licans being that of senator and
the county nttorney, upon the lat
ter there being no contest.
John J. Gust in of Murdock has
a safe lead over Riehey for rep
resentative and is very probably
a winner by a small majority.
For county assessor W. R.
Bryan is running ahead of L. A.
Tyson and will have a majority of
good diminsions.
Julius Pilz for commissioner
will have a large majority, leading
the ticket in almost every pre
cinct. The length of the ballot made
the counting of the voles very
hard and it was daylight before
many of the election boards fin
ished Iheir tasks and no informa
tion could be secured last night
in regard to the outcome in the

Sales Are Absolutely Necessary at
Least Once a Year to Clean
Up Stock.
From Tuesday's Dully.
The country merchant who
watched the advertising of the city
stores is impressed with the fact
that it is almost entirely made up
of "special sales." The ads an
nouncing new goods or inducing
trade on any other basis, all put
together, are fewer than the
"sale" ads.
In the first place a country mer
chant knows he has to run his
store on a little ditferent basis
tUan the city stores, a basis that
makes special sales of cut prices
ess practical. In I he second place
such rank exaggeration of his
sale prices and qualities would be
fatal to the success of the sale
and his reputation for truthful
ness and honesty.
However, Ihe fact that the big
city stores make such wholesale
and continuous use of sales leads
the country merchant to the con
clusion that there is a real trade
value there, and one that he may
well use, if only occasionally, to
We all know country merchants
who never have special sales,
never cut prices or make any at
tempt, to clean up Iheir slock by
any general trade inducement. If
(here are any considerable num
ber of such merchants in one
town if will be found that there is
a town falling behind its neigh
bors in mercantile business and

to mail order houses and larger
Sales are absolutely necessary
to clean up stock, lo keep custom
ers trading at home, in fact, there
are loo many good reasons for
sales to innumerale here. The
main point to be made here is
that, the merchant should always
remember I hat a sale is n sort of
purt and needs extra effort, in
preparation of stock, in handling
the trade and in advertising.

who didn't feel that Ihey had wit

from the development of the

most laughable comedies, and all
were presented in a manner that
pleased the most exacting. These
"talking" pictures have a peculiar
facination for the audience and it
was with great regret that they
saw the last picture shown on the
screen, but departed with the
hope that the company would re
turn again this season. One of
the most inspiring pictures shown
was that, of the raising and Ihe
