It Is n significant fact that while some
business men have been complaining of a
slack trailo and business has scarcely begun
to recover from the ileprcsslon of the | st
three years , one of Omaha's retail firms has
indicated Its faith In the future by ex
pending a small fortune In converting Its
establishment Into one of the most hand-
Homely furnished stores to be found between
Chicago and San Francisco. When Drown
ing , King & Co. announced their 20 per cent
reduction sales for the purpose of clearing
out their stock preparatory to the Improve
ments , It was the general expression of their
customers that the Interior of their store
could scarcely bo made more attractive than
It was. Hut since then the firm has ex
pended upwards of 17,000 In beautifying the
Interior of Its establishment , and the result
nhows as luxurious and attractive an In
terior as can bo found In any similar estab-
i llshment In the great eastern cities.
j The distinguishing feature of the first
floor as It now appears Is the magnificent
tdiowcascs , which are the largest ever man
ufactured In this country. They are of
Eolld plato glass from the lloor up and noth-
j lug could display a profusion of tasty fabrics
I to better advantage. The cases are of about
4 the usual height .and the Interior Is hung
with glass shelves , o that there Is a con
tinuous display of goods from the lloor up ,
In the evening the effect Is still more strlk-
n Ing , for they are Illuminated with Incan
descent lamps placed fifteen Inches apart ,
which (111 ( the glass with a brilliant flood of
Hltht. The art glass In the show windows
has also been clungcd and the colors ar
ranged to harmonize more agree
ably with the general effect of
the decorations. These are also bril
liantly Illuminated with electric lights and
the effect Is , emphasized by the magnificent
plato glass mirrors which form the back
ground. A number of upright showcases of
the same construction and material as the
others contain very realistic wax figures
handsomely dressed and wonderfully life
DESIGNED FOR COMFORT.
Hut the most beautiful features of the es
tablishment are found on the second floor ,
which Is occupied by the youths' and chil
dren's department. This department Is that
most frequently visited by the women and
lioro they arc offered a most luxurious walt-
, Ing pUce. The entire north front of the
floor Is occupied by the reception room ,
which Is as magnificently furnished as the
drawing room of a millionaire ; . The floor
Is covered with moquctto carpet of exquisite
pattern and upon which the furniture of
solid mahogany shows to Its best advantage.
Mahogany la exclusively used In the furnish
ing and some of the pieces are models of
exquisite cabinet work. Among them Is
n handsome secretary , which Is liberally
stocked with stationery and other conven
iences and which Is for the use of customers. *
The walls are almost solidly banked between
the windows with mirrors , and In front of
each Is a largo Incandescent light , which ,
ndded'to those which arc distributed through
the Interior , make the Illumination com
The windows are magnificently draped
with I ice curtains and plush draperies and
the window seats , covered with Inviting
cushions of plush , offer a 'grateful Induce
ment to sit down arid' Indulge In the perfect
view of the streets which Is afforded. The
room Is not lacking In the more aesthetic
furnishings , for the stands and window
scats are relieved by handsomely painted
Jardinieres with potted palms nnd ferns.
On the same floor Is another handsome
showcase , which Is the work of a local
1 firm. There Is only ono other like It In the
United States and that Is In a largo estab
lishment at Cleveland , 0 , This Is used for
i the shirt waist display and the huge glass
iloor.i fold upward like the top c" a mod
In addition to these features the three
floors havd been repainted and redecorated
from top to bottom and the result Is some
thing that Is good enough to take one's
friends from out of town to see and admire.

Work was commenced yesterday morning
on the construction of the big drainage sewer
that Is to extend along the four sides of the
block enclosing the- new government build
ing. It will be twenty-five feet deep and four
feet wide. It will be partly under the side
walk , the center of the ditch being twelve
feet from the curb. When the trench Is dug
It will bo allowed to stand open , for a wn-U
or more , and the drainage of the new build
ing tested to sen that everything Is all right.
About a dozen men wcro employed In
digging for this work yesterday morning ,
nnd though the early morning was bitterly
cold the workmen wcro watched by double
their number , men out of work , anxiously
looking for a Job.
Whllo thcso men were digging the trench
along the Capitol avenue sldo of the hlock ,
others were at work on the Seventeenth
street side , felling the big trees that hive
stood there for a number of years. A half
dozen trees went down In the course of the
morning , and after the noon hour the woodchoppers -
choppers turned their attention to the trees
on the Dodge street side. These trees stand
In the way of the drainage ditch , and have
to ho removed before the trench diggers come
along. Within the building a number of
plumbers are at work , and altogether the
now poatclllco presents , u busier scene than
It has for many months.
Wlion In want of a good liniment , buy
Salvation Oil , which costs only 25 cento.

A meeting of unusual Importance to
Omaha and of special Interest to those who
are engaged In making arrangements for
the Second Annual Charity Circus , Hippo
drome , Menagerie and Wild West show , and
to the worthy poor dependent upon sweet
charity , was held In the passenger depart
ment of the Klkhorn road yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock. There were present a large dele
gation from the Knights of Ak-Sar-llen ,
retail merchants" and the paasongor repre
sentatives of all the railroads entering
The circus managers lost no time , after
General Passenger Agent Ruchanan of the
Hlkhorn called the meeting to order , In In
forming the railroaders that this was to
bo the greatest show on earth , and that
therefore they ehouhf demand and expect
the most favorable rates granted to all the
people within 150 mllea of Omaha who might
want to enter within the city's gates on thai
occasion. The spokesman of the circus man
agement said that-nothing less than a rate
of one faro for the round trip , good for all
thrco days of the circus. December S. 9 and
10 , within a radius of 150 mllea of Omaha
Would be acceptable.
The passenger men caucused a hit and
shook their heads. They said that a one-fare
rate had been granted for the society circus :
last year , and thnt but little Increase In
business had resulted. They agreed , how
ever , to refer the whole matter to Chair
man Caldwcll of the Western Passenger as
sociation , asking him to submit It to n
vote of all the lines Interested. The pas
senger men said they wanted to do the
square thing , and desired to help make the
circus a great success , but they said they
could not go too far In the matter. A prob
able result of the conference Is the granting
of a one-fare rate for December 9 alone ,
from all points within 150 miles of Omaha ,
as a compromise.

The resolution adopted by the city council
Tuesday night providing for the appoint
ment of a special committee to confer with
the Omaha Water company relative to an
arrangement by which additional water
service may be secured without n material
Increase fn the cost , Is a subject of con
siderable speculation In olllclal circles. In
view of the very complicated relations
which now exist between the city nnd the
water company , any legislation on the sub
ject Is regarded with a good deal of sus
picion nnd a good many of the members
of the council are disposed to regard this
resolution as preliminary to some action
by which th-j city will forfeit some of the
rights which It now claims
The contention of the city through Its
executive and legal department haa been
that the new company did not acquire the
franchise which belonged to the American
Water Works company when It purchaacd
the property. Since then the claim of the
new company to this franchise has never
been olllclally recognized. Hven when per
mits were Issued to open streets for neces
sary repairs to the system , the permit was
stamped with a reservation by which the
city declared that In Issuing the permit , no
recognition was made of the rights of the
company. Some of the councllmen now
contend that If this special committee should
confer with the water company and agree
on some arrangement , the position held by
the- city would be rendered Insecure. The
minute this arrangement was ratified by
the council the city would have ofllclally
recognized the claims of the water com
pany nnd It would be the legal owner
of the disputed franchise.
Councilman Wheeler , who Introduced the
resolution , says that It was In
tended simply as a feeler In the
direction of a reduced rate for
rentals. He says that for a long time past
there has been n sentiment that the city was
paying too much for water , and now , that
litigation lias been suspended nnd the plant
has become an Omaha property , there Is a
possibility that something might be
accomplished that would be to the advantage
of thn city.
Manager nierbowcr of the water company
says that he knows nothing of the resolution
except what ho read In the morning papers.
In his opinion anything that would effect
an understanding between his company and
the city would bo a gcod thing. The officers
of the companyrecognize the fact that there
Is a sentiment among the taxpayers against
the water company , and they are disposed to
get rid of It by giving the best possible
service and dealing liberally with the city.
They have extensive plans for Improvements
outside of the new main from Florence , hut
us n uusmess proposition iney ur > not reel
like , Investing additional capital whllo there
Is a question as to their title to the franchise
Mr. Blcrbowcr says that It would be a good
thing , both for the city and the company. If
an understanding could be reached. If the
city was In a pcsttlon to buy the plan
all right , but If that was not the case , the
next best thing should be done and the com
pany placed In a position where It would fee
safe In going ahead with Its plans for th < i
Improvement of the system.

Is ever killed by it. Vcvr men arc afraid
of consumption , and yet it causes otic-sixth
of all the deaths in the world. It is more
deadly than either wars or pestilences.
Any sort of wasting disease may lead to
consumption. Any blight disorder of the
respiratory organs may easily develop
it. Weakness of the body , emaciation ,
lack of vitality nrc plain invitations for the
germs of consumption. Consumption is not
entirely a disease of the lunga. U in a dis

CHILDREN'S SUITS , $2.00
That doesn't sound remarkably cheap in the face of
some of the "Sales" around town , and yet these suits are
better suits , better patterns , better made up and bettor
values than the suits advertised as "big bargains" at $3
in any of the prevailing calamity sales. It's no trick for
any store to advertise things cheap. It's no triclc to make
things sound elegant in print. It's no triclc to get up a
sensational sale and beat the torn loins and use big type
to help out small values , but it's something of a trick to
buy goods cheap enough so they will sell without thn aid
of any such methods , and so the people will know that
they are special bargains without having to swallow whole
pages of printer's ink to find it out. TheSsoo suits now
selling at The Nebraska are remarkable value for the
price. The $2.50 suits at The Nebraska are as good as
rhe $3.50 suits anywhere else. The handsome Chinchilla
Reefers we sell at $1.75 for lads 4 to 10 years are as good
as anybody sells for $2,50 , and the Boys' Suit we sell at
§ 1.50 , $2.50 and $3.00 are easily worth $1.50 to $2.00
more , according to the way they are sold in other stores.

the present season. You have seen lilKh-
backed chairs before that wcro called
"Colonial , " but It Is quite a different mat us
ter to pcnsess a fac-slmlle of ono of the
old Mayflower chairs.
The lines of this chair arc unmistakably
n sign of Its authenticity. They are like
the points of a fine horse ; they are not
easily mistaken when once seen.
The high arms ; the recessed , solid scat ;
the cross braces from the head rest to the
base ; the sv oiling Dutch legs all these are
the proof marks of the period. T
The finish Is In Ivory white , with old

49 Ills Ilrst novel , "In the Midst of Alarms , " placed him nt once amoii } , '
49 the leading nrc.sent-day writers of llctlon In Kn lam ! and America.
49 For years Mr. llarr has been ambitious to sot forth In the. form of llc
tlon the conditions of life as they oxlst today In a great Industrial
center , as did Dickens years ago the life of the social conditions that
then existed. With this purpose In view , Mr. Burr hns made u clo.se
49 study of the.manufacturing districts of London , and In this , his latest

the struggle of Mursten , an intelligent young worljlngman , secretary
49 of a labor union , against Mr. Sartwell , the manager of the great iron
works oT Monkion & Hope.
x It Is n drama of stirring scenes from beginning to end. As a foil
to the exciting situations In the contest , Mr. Barr Introduces the happy-
49 go-lucky character of young llarncy Hope , who turns up unexpectedly
49 In every emergency , and in his own way helps in the solution of many
49 dllllcult problems.
* In short , the story abounds In the humorous , droll and lively invention

and might be characterized as refreshing , highly amusing and stir
