es in medicines , which has been ngi
tatlng the minds of many people , does

Mrs. Jeanuette Benson , and not-her
husband as at lirst reported , one
of Omaha's pioneer business wi > moi
and proprietor of tbo fancy dry goods
and women and children's furnishing
store at 210-212 South Sixteenth street ,
was found dead In bed at her home ,
IJ15 South Twenty-sixth street , Oma
ha. She bad been sick several days
with grip , but had not called a physi
cian and her death was entirely tin-
looked for. She retired as usual
Wednesday night after spending the
greater part of the day In bed and was
not seen or beard by the other per
sons in ( lie house until about. S o'clock
a. in. , whciHt was discovered that , life
had been extinct several hours and
the body already cold and rigid. Mrs.
Benson complained of feeling ill Snt-
urdey night , but thought the sicknesr.
nothing worse than a bad cold or sin
attack of grip. She remained indoors
Monday , but went to the store and
remained there until noon Tuesday.
Wednesday she stayed home and In
the afternoon took a bath , which , it
is thought , contributed to the possible
chill and heart congestion that nrob-
ably ended her life. She bad not
been subject to heart trouble , but was
a woman well past middle life. No
apprehension for iier safety was felt
by the members of the household
Wednesday night. Mrs. Bfnson
owned and operated the largest Inde
pendent business controlled by a wo
man In Omaha. She established her
store seventeen years ago. Previous
to coining to Omaha Mrs. Benson had
been In business at Freeport , 111. , for
more than twenty years. She was
born In Michigan and was about fiO
years old. In Omaha her success has
always been pointed to as an illustra
tion of what a woman can do in the
business world. She was public spir
ited and contributed liberally to va
rious enterprises calculated to help
the city and its people. She was an
active member of the Woman's club ,
a supporter of the Young Women's
Christian association and an atten
dant at All Saints' church.

resulted In many frozen noses , oars ,
feet and lingers. Four buildings were
destroyed , a restaurant , a drug store ,
the postofllce and an Implement ware
bouse , with a loss aggregating .f j,0iO ( ,
and little insurance.
The fire started In the restaurant
of L. A. Bullock at 3-10 : yosrordav af
ternoon , the flames being sot by the
explosion of a gasoline stove. The
building and fixtures were entirely
destroyed at a loss of $1.000. There
was no Insurance.

tbo next to suffer from the flames.

energy that was productive of benefit
to other property owners who weio
threatened with losses.

Hiignr. I sold Ibis plum at | ! 2.fiO to
$ : : .00 a bushel the past season when
other varieties of sour plums were
soiling for 7.r. cents to $1.0 ( ) n bushel.
It has tnkon first premium at several
fairs , a premium at the Lincoln state
fair , and limbs and branches loaded
with plums , shipped to the Pan-Amer
ican exposition at Buffalo , Now York ,
wore shown In the Nobrasak fruir ex
hibit that took one of the gold medals.
I also received an honorable mention
diploma on this plum from the Pan-
American exposition. Wo believe this
plum has more good qualities , and Is
the best plum In existence for this
whole northwestern country. If you
plant Porno of these trees you will bo
well paid.
Wo have a choice fine lot of five to
six feet trees to sell for the spring
of in05. These trees wore grown from
grafts cut off these bearing trees that
bore these plums , nnd they will hear
fruit at two or three years old If
planted and are sure to be genuine.
If you want some of these trees send
your order early ami-got the best plum
In existence. Trees flvo to six feet
Jl-25 each ; $12.00 per dozen.
$6 trees for $6.00. The only way you
can be sure of getting this plum true
to name grafted from my bearing trees
Is to send your order direct to me.
