TWO BUILDINGS IN PROSPECT
Facttry at East Omaha and Structure for
Iniarance Companies in City.
TO EE BUILT ON MOST MODERN LINES
lasaranee Compinlra Are lull
Have Agreed to Take Qaartera
la RallrflnaT to tie Kreeted
Especially for Thrm
It Is reported that the Omaha Tanning
company has plana under way for tho con
struction of a building at East Omaha to
cost $50,000 and that the work will be
started as aoon aa the weather permits In
the sprint. The Omaha tannery was started
bout a year ago as an experiment, and the
claims of the promoter were so success
fully borne out that capital was interested,
one of the Investors being I. 8. Shepherd
son of Rlverton, Neb., who Is one of the
heaviest capitalists of the Interior of the
state, t'nder the manngrnient of Mr. Shep
herdson and his local representatives the
plant has been developed so largely that the
present quarters at East Omaha are inade
quate. When the company first went to East
Omaha it secured a conditional contract for
the old Kllpatrlck-Korb building and the
manufacture of harness leather was begun.
The demand for thla leather has exceeded
the supply, but the company has decided to
consume as much of Its own product aa pos
sible and has engaged In the manufacture of
harness. The new building In contempla
tion will be devoted to manufacturing, the
present one to be used as a tannery.
St met a re for Insurance A arm In.
One of the new buildings planned for the
Coming year, and which will be among the
first started, probably, will be constructed
as the result of the united action of the In
surance companies of the city. The matter
was first agitated by the Columbia Fire In
surance company, which maintains head
quarters at Omaha. The representatives
of this company brought the subject before
a number of general agents, suggesting that
they unite In the occupancy of a building
which will be devoted almost entirely to
the use of the It .urance companies.
The project ml with the approval of the
other parties and a canvass of the city was
mado, showing thnt about seventy-five
companies or agents would take space in
the proposed building.
It was ' ascertained that the companies
did not feel warranted in expending the
amount required for the erection of the
building so It was decided to present the
natter to the representatives of one or
more of the larger corporations and indi
viduals interested In the city. The propo
sition is now being considered by them
and It Is said that at least one of them
will act. If the companies can get the
building erected it will be centrally located
and one of the most modern of office build
ings, adapted particularly to the work of
the Insurance agents.

la Rivaled by Unman Hair Where
Dandruff la Kradleated.
Sealskin is adirj-ed the world over tor Its
oftness and glob."uess, and yet the human
balr is equally as soft and 'glossy when
healthy, and the radical cause of all hair
trouble is dandruff, which ,1s caused by a
pestiferous parasite that saps the vitality
ef the hair at its root. Newbro'a Herplclde
Is the only preparation that is fatal to the
dandruff germ. Without dandruff no fall
ing hair, but a luxuriant growth of glossy,
oft hair is certain. Scouring the scalp
won't cure dandruff. Kill the dandruff
cerm. Thousands of women owe their beau
tiful suits of hair to Newbro's Herplcide.

"The Tower Behind the Throne," a story
of court life, intrigue, quarrels and ex
positions of chivalry of other periods, will
be the attraction at the Boyd tomorrow
night. Katberlne Wlllard, young actress
of country-wide reputation, will be sen in
the role of Aria, daughter of the court mu
sician, who Is schemed against by a jealous
duchess in order that she may separate and
gain for herself a young courtier who Is in
love with Aria. . The story of the play Is
absorbingly Interesting and full of stren
uous action. The scenery Is elaborate and
effective and the costuming Is magnificent.
Wright Lorlmer is Miss Wlllard'. princi
I With Valerie Bergers on the bill the
' Orpheum has a strong feature that appeals
to the women who will patronize the mati
nee this afternoon. Miss Bergere Is of the
winsome type of personality that finds a
warm spot as an entertainer In public
fancy and possesses a genius for acting
that has made her essayals notable suc
cesses, which obtains in the case of Jo
sephine Paul, her role Id the sketch she
Is now presenting, entitled "Billle's First
Love," which affords a range of emotion
giving opportunities for the versatility of
her art, which the shows to good account.
I Supporting her are Mr. Munlfee Johnstone
and Miss Belle Stoddard, who are eatlsfac-
' tory In their respective parts. A brand new
stage setting Is one of the pleasing details
of the little production. It was built ex
pressly to be used for the first time by
Miss Bergere. It wal built by Charles
, Gore, scenic artist, and William Landon,
, stage manager of the Orpheum.
Hochman, whose only appearance will be
Friday evening at the Kountze Memorial

gifted of our young pianists an artist of
