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 like. 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 plete. 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 ern desk. 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. The IlfHl Wny to Cure Disease Is to establish health. Pure , rich blood means good health. Hood's Sarsapa- rllla Is the Ouo True Illood Purifier.

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.

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 Omaha. 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. SAM3 OK GUAM ) ISI.AXO IIIIAXCII.

It was among the drat mines opened up In the district and has iccn working steadily except that the mill was destroyed In the strlko of 1802 and was not rebuilt until the following spring.

During the pant year It has employed 125 men stcaiJIIy. milling 525 tom dally nnd shipping about thrco carloads of concentrates.

IS PUT FORIH AS A FEELER Some Pear Expressed thnt Whcolor's Water Works Resolution is Loaded. MIGHT WORK A FORFEITURE OF RIGHTS Comiclliiien llnpe for n HeiliicUon In \\"nU-r lU'iilnlN Company Mummer Snj'M lie \Vnnln to llenl Mlturnlly ultli the City. 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.

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 ease of thu blood that shows itself most strongly in the lungs. It is not as it used to lie considered incurable. Dr. I'iercc'o Golden Medical Discovery has changed nil that. It will cure ninety-eight percent , of all cases of consumption if taken in time. It is the most wonderful blood maker and flesh builder in the world. It cures where doctors have failed.

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 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.

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 * 3 novel , "The Mutable Many , " he pictures In his charnclerlstlc manner 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 3 49 tion which makes Mr. llarr the most diverting of tlio newer writers , and might be characterized as refreshing , highly amusing and stir ringly dramatic.
