"Collina story will be received
with eagerness not only ly the Irish
but by everyone, I am sure. Though
the signing the treaty with Kuala ml
wa unfortunate, we know that Col
lins aimed at prare for F.rin in his
heart, mind and actions. Hi story
should go down in hitory.1
John Hush, an earnest leader in
Irish affairs in Omaha, expressed ela
tion over the announcement that The
Omaha Hee is to publish Collins'
"I am well pleased to know that
the famous Irish leader' story is to
be published", stated Mr.
Rush. "The public will follow it with
iuterrst, as Collins was in a position
to give inside farts."
Dr. T. K. Mullen, head of the
Omaha branch of the Ancient Order
of Hibernian, was equally glad that
The Omaha Bee obtained the rights
to Collins' own story of Ireland.
"Fine," he said. "Collina may be
ranked with Kobert Emmet and hit
story will be most interesting."

also wat interested to learn that The

This Building "Too Big"
for Omaha 17 Years Ago
W. J. MANSFIELD
32j2 farnam Stwt "TAe DeVOC Paint StOTe" Omaha, Nth.
The building the late Peter E. Her wanted to build at Thirteenth and
Farnam ttreett 17 years ago.
Watt discovered tteam in a teapot
and they laughed at him.
Bell invented the telephone and
they called him an idle dreamer.
Back in 1905, only 17 yeart ago, an
Omaha man conceived in hit own
mind a skyscraper of 16 ttories and
they called him a dreamer and
laughed at him.
The passage of time works wonders
and nowhere is this more conclusively
proved than in Omaha t 1922 skyline.
The other day John L. Webster
was rummaging through some of his
effects. Hidden away in a corner,
long forgotten, he came upon a little
four-page pamphlet. The first pase
dopicted an architect's idea of a 16
story building. Across the top was
written "Railway Exchange Bldg."
Nobody Would Listen.
Seventeen years ago that pamphlet
wat distributed by the late I'eter E.
Her. It was his idea, his dream. A
skyscraper for Omaha. He wanted
to build it at the corner of Thir
teenth and Farnam streets.
He had an architect draw up plans,
then pen a sketch. These plans and
thia sketch he put into a prospectus,
distributed and then called a meeting
of capitalists, real estate men and
business men. The meeting was
held at the Omaha club and there
Mr. Iter outlined his plan.
But he dreamed alone. Nobody
would listen. A 16-story building?
Jt wat preposterous. J his wat
Omaha, not New York.
Her expostulated that Omaha was
a growing city. Then he argued.
And then he pleaded. But all to no
avail. The middle west had no
buildings reaching higher into the
air than 10 stories and a plan to erect
a higher structure wat regarded at
the heighth of foolishness.
' Folds Up Plant.
Disappointed and unhappy, Her
folded up hit plant and prospectus
and put them away. But he had the
subsequent satisfaction of proving
that a 16-btory building was not lust
the dream of a bubble-blower. For
in less than a decade the men who
laughed at hit plans taw the. City
National bank building rear its 16
stories info the air and admitted the
town needed it.
If he were alive today, even more
satisfaction would come from Oma
ha's skyline to the builder who was
stopped by the ridicule of his fel
lows. He would see the Woodmen
of the World, 19 stories; the North
western Bell Telephone building, 15
stoj-ics; the Hotel Fontenelle. 14
stories; the First National bank, 14
stories; Union Facific headquarters
12 stories, and the new Medical Artt
buildinsr on its way to 19 ttories.
And the contrast only 17 yeart
ago they laughed at the man who
wanted to put up a 16-atory sky

JUST one year ago The Brandeis Store Iiestaurants were for
mally opened. That was an occasion that will long be re
membered by the happy participants. Visitors from other
cities mingled with the throngs of Omahans and tin-re were, on
every hand, exclamations of surprise and .approval at the beauty
of the Dining Kooms, the completeness of arrangements in kitch
ens and serving rooms, the perfection of the service and the
excellence of the cuisine.
The reputation then otahlished has been faitbfullv main
tained, and now, after the first year's trial, the patronage has
grown far beyond the management's expectations.
It will not be regarded as immodest on our part when we
say that Omaha has a right to be proud rf theso wonderfully
equipped dining rooms. That is a remark that has come to be
quite eomnum among the people of litis citv. "I have seen noth
ing finer any where," is the 'statement that often fall from the
lips of e.xjHMieneed travelers. Theso restaurants were established
as a IlrandeU Store convenience and, while the initial expendi
ture was enormou's and the current ctt larire, it un all boen
justified by the place these dining room have taken in the af
fair of the uncial ami business world.
We thank our patron for the wonderful Mipport given these
