Take the ChUl Off
Too early to start the expensive furnace or the
coal-eating base burner. All you want is a little
heat in the mornings and evenings to take the
chill off.
A Gas Radiator
That will do the business and the cost will be
less than one-fourth of what the same amount of
heat would cost from furnace or base burner.
And you'll get all the heat you need. We have
the radiators ranging in price from $2.75 to $10.
Heats the bath water in five minutes at a cost of
less than two cents. n
The Use of Gas is a Prac
tical Economy
This is the verdict of all consumers of gas. We
will demonstrate its truth if given an opportunity..

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 28. (Special
Correspondence.) A feeling of abso
lute confidence in the election of Bry
an pervades the breasts of the men
who have been intimately connected
with the management of his campaign.
This confidence is born of the thor
ough unification of the democratic
party, the dissensions in the republi
can party, .he magnificent campaign
of Bryan, the "me too" echo of a cam
paign made by Taft, the rallying of
the workingmen to Bryan, the popu
lar demand for a revision downward
of the tariff, the explosion of the old
theory of panics coming pnly under
democratic rule and a thousand and
one other things the presage the tri
umph of the principles espoused by
Bryan. .
Personal letters and public state
ments from leading democrats who
are in a position to know every phase
of the situation all go to show that
Bryan's election is assured.
wards of $750,000,000, and at the same
time wiped out the steel trust's only
competitor. Of course the whole
gang is for Taft and is contributing
liberally to the g. o. p. campaign
fund. .
(In many respects this has been the
most unique campaign in the history
of American politics. On the one
hand is a candidate who was not the
choice of the rank and file of his
party, but a selection foisted upon
them by a president who seeks to en
force the law of entail and, and im
pressed federal office holders to help
enforce his will. On the other hand
is a candidate who was unanimously
nominated by the rank and file of his
party; a man who had nothing to of
fer save his own unstained record, his
ability, his honesty, his sincerity, his
patriotism and his love of popular
rights. On the one hand a candidate
backed by the rusts and syndicates
and supported by 'a. president who
has loudly boasted of his opposition
to those same trusts and syndicates.
On the other hand a candidate who
has fought special privilege, who of
fers an adequate remedy for present
injustice. On the one hand a man
who says an appeal for the right of
trial by jury is "the most insidious at
tack ever made upon the integrity of
the courts." On the other hand a man
who says that an honest workingman
should not be denied a right guaran
teed the most confirmed criminal.
J. C. Harpham, one of the largest
manufacturers of harness and saddles
in the west and the employer of many
men, has always been a republican. He
is today a member of the excise board
of Lincoln, having been nominated and
elected as a republican. He Is active
ly supporting Bryan and has contribut
ed liberally to the democratic cam
paign fund.
"1 am for Bryan for many reasons
one of them being that he is my neigh
bor. Another is that he Is an ideal
citizen, an able and patriotic man and
a lover of humanity. I have no pa
tience with this threat of .panic. If
the election of this high-minded, God
fearing, able, patriotic and sincere
man will bring on a panic, then in
God's name let us have the panic and
by so doing forever break the power
of a few men to make or unmake good
business conditions. I have no use for
the man who is always boasting of his
willingness to die for his country, but
who can be scared into perpetuating
gross wrongs by the threat of . being
forced to miss an occasional meal."

There has been little of the spectac
ular in this campaign unless the
tremendous ovations tendered Bryan
everywhere may be called spectacular.
The people are not making much
noise, which may be taken as an indi
cation that they are - "keeping up a
de'il o' thinkin'."
L. C. Burr, one of Nebraska's most
prominent attorneys, has always been
a republican, and is today. But he is
energetically supporting Bryan. W. A.
Woodward, a republican . councilman
of Lincoln, is openly and energetically
supporting Bryan. More than 90 per
cent of the republican trades unionists
of Lincoln and Omaha are supporting
Bryan. In one family in a town near
Lincoln are eight votes a father and
seven sons. Not one rof them ever
voted for a democrat for any office
Only the father is for' Taft the seven
boys are for Bryan. ;

fj No better flour sold on the Lincoln market.
Every sack warranted. We want the trade of
Union men and women, and we aim to deserve it.
If your grocer does not handle Liberty Flouri 'phone
us and we will attend to it. Ask your neighbor
how ' she likes Liberty Flour. We rely on the
recommendation of those who use it
But there is something doing the
last week of the campaign. The rail
roads are threatening to reduce wages
if Bryan is elected. Manufacturers
who employ the profits of an iniquit
ous tariff threaten to close their fac
tories if Taft is defeated. "Calamity
wails" loud and long descend from the
lips of tariff b"rcns, political bankers
and trust ber.eueiaries who see the
signs of Bryan's triumph. Everything
that will coerce, browbeat and club
workingmen into voting for Taft is
being brought into use. Millions have
been poured into the republican slush
fund during the last ten days. Every
cabinet officer is on the stump in an
effort to stem the Bryan tide. Roose
velt is working like a ward politician,
and working hand in glove with the
interests that he has . claimed along to
be fighting to the finish." But despite
it all the tide is still .funning Bryan
ward, and a victory for the people is
in sight. '
Last week in Lincoln a literary .club
composed of men and women met in
regular session. Among other topics
discussed was "bank guaranty." Two i
republican bankers present opposed it
as "revolutionary," "socialistic" and
"unfair.". After they had spoken a
woman nearly 70 years of age arose
and spoke. For seventeen years she
has been caring for an invalid hus
band who for two years was in the asy
lum. She and her husband worked
and saved and invested until they had
accumulated $37,000. They had it in
a couple of Lincoln banks and were
winding up their business affairs in
the expectation of retiring and living
in ease and comfort. One night -they
retired to rest well to do and happy.
They awoke in the morning to find
themselves paupers. The two banks in
which they had deposited the savings
of a lifetime had gone broke. This
man and woman got less than $4,000
back. The husband became mentally
deranged through brooding over the
loss. The woman had to fight the bat
tle alone. She told her story to that
literary club.
"Friends,, that is my story," con
cluded this brave woman. "I leave it
to you to decide whether a law that
will prevent future injustice of this
kind is 'revolutionary,' 'socialistic' or
'unfair.' "

The other day, George L. Sheldon,
republican candidate for re-election as
governor of Nebraska, spoke in Adams,
Neb. While walking down the street
he saw a beautiful parrot in a cage.
"What a magnificent bird," , ex
claimed the governor. "I never saw
such a beauty. Hello, Polly.." ;
"Hello," replied. Polly. .
"Polly - want a cracker?" inquired
the governor. ,
"Hurrah for Bryan!" shrieked the
parrot. (
Now the last days of Governor
Sheldon's ' campaign are made miser
able for him by joking friends and
political opponents who greet him with
the query:
"Polly want a cracker?"
In 1891 the Capital National Bank of
Lincoln failed, owing private deposit
ors upwards of $400,000 and the state
about f 300,000. Of this $700,000 prac
tically nothing was recovered. The loss
was caused by a dishonest .banker. "He
was tried and convicted and sen
ITENTIARY. The judge who sen
tenced him a short time afterwards
sentenced for life a highwayman who
held up a star route mail carrier in
western Nebraska and robbed the mail
of two copper pennies.
In the closing days of last year
President Roosevelt hailed Morgan,
Perkins, Schwab and their coterie as
"public benefactors" and "saviors of
the national credit" because they came
forward and put up $35,000,000 in cash
to help ' tide over the "Roosevelt
panic." It now develops that in so
doing Morgan, Schwab, Perkins,, et al
only made a little profit of about 1,500
percent on their benefaction.' Before
putting up the money they made it a
condition that they should have in re
turn a controlling interest in the Ten
nessee Coal and Iron Co.. the steel
trust's only competitor. President
Roosevelt admits that he agreed to
prevent the consolidators from being
prosecuted under the anti-trust law.
Now it transpires that for this $35,
000,000 the steel trust gang secured
possession of a property worth up-
n ' .
In conclusion, and as a final word in
this series of letters:
For President, a man who won his
nomination by virtue of his ability, his
battle for the plain people and his un
swerving allegiance to the doctrine of
equal rights, or
For a president, a man who has held
appointive office for a quarter of a
century, the beneficiary of inherited
and matrimonial wealth and an effort
to entail the office of president, whose
experience as an administrator is con
fined to two year's service as the ab
solute despot over 7,000,000 subjugated
people and who is supported by every
robber trust and predatory corpora
A statesman who has studied
and worked and ' wrought, or a man
who has held appointive office and
had everything he has today given to
him by others who are selfishly inter
ested in his success. '
If it is possible that the election of
an honest, able, God-fearing and hu
manity loving man to the presidency
of this republic will result in a panic,
is it not time we suffered a little bit
in order that we may be strong?
