It U neat Wednesday evening that the
Christian world hams the foot end of the
famllr washing along tho mantle and goes
upstairs barefooted In the hope that a
certain corpulent and lavishly-Inclined old
gentleman by the name of K. KrlnslP wlli
lip In by the chimney route and bulge
the aforesaid family wash from lt toe up
to Ita garter line.
Ha has been doing It for some several
hundred years, and there seems no very
good reason to suppose that he will permit
any general disappointment this year. In
deed, his purchasing agents hare been
caught trying to corner the market '.he last
few days. Moreover, the sources of supply
have a presentiment that thse agents will
be doing still more' Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, and are preparing for a mighty
Last year the big day for Christmas shop
ping was the last Saturday prior to K.
Krlngle's coming. It was a record-breaker.
It sent merchants home feeling like Fler
pont Morgans and It sent their employes
home feeling like dray horses. Store stocks
looked Ilka the mornlng-after-the-batlle
and night Janitors hung out the distress
Yesterday, the corresponding Saturday,
was not so tad -or good. But then there
were reasons. To begin with, Christmas
was not ao near by a day, and shoppers
didn't feel so pressed for time In making
their selections. Women, who do most of
the shopping at Christmas time, for the
same reason that they do all the shopping
t all other times, never like to definitely
decide until the last possible minute. They
may have determined September 20 what
the gift was to be; decided October 20
what shape It was to be, and decided No
vember 20 what Ita color was to be, but
it's never earlier than December 20 that
they take the money with them and really
This year, December 20 was a very bad
day and that Is the other reason why their
buying didn't come up to last year's
standard. The mercury stood several de
greet above the freezing point from dawn
until closing time, and, to make matters
worse, rain fell. The melting snow became
the wettest kind of slush and every cross
lng was an exclamation point. Some women
who hadn't any golf skirts never got be
yond the first exclamation point. Others
did, but their own apparel was all they
cared to carry, and what they couldn't have
delivered they left to be bought on a fairer
Btlll, the merchants and shopkeepers are
not complaining. They had all they could
comfortably do and their establishments
all looked like the floor of a convention
hall Just before the nominating committee
reports. The old man and the elevator boy
ate In the same kind of a hurry at the
nearest restaurant and went home with the
same amount of lead In their shoes. The
young woman who dispensed notions and
knick-knacks was, like the floorwalker who
dispensed smiles and general directions,
plentifully occupied. The cash register
chimes played a Christmas carol to gallop
time and everybody was two-stepping to
keep their shoes off other people's feet.
Report of the Trade.'
Abbreviated, the report of the trading up
to this time Is that the demand for ataples
la up to standard and the demand for lux
uries ahead of previous years. The people
of the realm have the coin of the realm
and are letting loose of It very generously.
They appear to be In a position to "go a lit
tle steeper" this year than they have pre
viously. They buy more Jewelry that kind
of Jewelry that haa the price marked In
Greek signs that the customer cannot in
terpret until he has gotten Inside tho store
and been choloroformed. They buy amok
fog Jackets that coat as much aa the full
piit they used to give. They buy hall
trees and whatnots where they used to buy
Jardiniere stands and ornamental waste
baskets. They have relegated the erstwhile
as-much-as-posslble-for-the-mooey Idea and
adopted the plan of lt-must-be-somethlng-nlca-thls-year.
How tho Stocks Compare.
And Very truly may It be said that they
have had no difficulty In finding articles to
neat this requirement. Stocks are larger,
of uniformly better grade and better as
sorted than ever before. Merchants knew
what waa coming and prepared themselves.
Clothing for the man Is all up-to-date, and
clothing for the woman Is all up to datea
yet to come. In counter goods there Is no
distinct novelty, but the old dainties are In
new form and more elaborate than ever.
The dolls have real eyelashes now and the
toilet sets art In solid goods.
The toy departments, most Important of
all at Christmas time, are veritable wonder
lands. Children this year will receive such
things aa their grandparents supposed never
could be made. There are mlnature flying
machines, there are miniature automobiles,
there are gravity trains that whlxs a hun
dred fact on the level and climb grades,
there are engines, hoisting machines and a
hundred other diminutive products of real
For the little mlases Oermany has been
drawn on for some wonderful tablewsrs
snd Paris for remarkable doll's apparel,
even to the Inlaid chests In which to
keep It and beautiful dressing tables on
which to place the accoutrements of social
war equipment for the whole boudoir In
fact. Russian articles of similar chsracter
make their appearance upon Omaha coun
ters for a first time this year.
The window decorations have been up to
stsndard, which Is saying a great deal, for
the Omaha standard Is about the limit.
Electricity has been employed with rather
more of the Ak-8ar-Ben style of spectacu
lar effect and has made possible the execu
tion of Ideas worthy of the test stage
craft. Boorilaa; the Baslnesa.
To please the children and cat.h the
public eye and ear unusual methods hare
been employed. The Boston store gave
Santa Claus office room and put In a pri
vate 'phone for him that he might be com
municated with directly from private
homes. Hayden Bros, had Kris Krlnglo
walking about In the flesh as a reception
committee and children's guide. They
opened a postofflce for him and guaranteed
repllfa to all communications. The Ben
nett store placed Itself In direct communi
cation with his factory and drew supplies
from him by the airship line. Blazing
signs were at many corners and one of
them flashed out in regular order a list
of tho Christmas specialties. Everywhere
there was effort to outdo past effort and to
make this year the year.
It required an Immense cash outlay, but
the men who furnished the money say they ,
are not at all alarmed. Three of the lead
ing proprietors told The Bee yesterday
that they estimated the Christmas business
of tho last two weeks In Omaha at $100,000,
with the three heaviest days yet to come.
The month is, so far, considerably ahead
of the first twenty days of December of
last year, notwithstanding yesterday's bad
weather and the consequent slump. The
smaller dealers are getting what they con
elder their full share and the reports from
the small towns of this and surrounding
states are that the year'a average prom
ises to be better than Its predecessors.
Of tho three remaining days much Is ex
pected. Tcday'a papers are filled with
lists of rich offerings and the advertise
ment writers worked long and hard over
their dictionaries and Joke books yester
day trying to contrive a new way of telling
an old story.
Coucernlna; the Boomers.
Advertising men are your beet and most
energetic friends, little children. They
talk all day In pleasant, cheering tones and
then sit up all night trying to think out
ways of breaking Into your papas' bank
accounts for your benefit. Some Ignorant,
naughty men, when they wish to persuade
your papas to give up money, select a dark
alley and a section of lead pipe, but the
advertising men don't do it that way.
Gracious, no! They select a good position
next to live reading matter and write a lot
of catchy things In black-faced typs. Some
time somebody will print a big book con
taining pictures of all the best friends of
little children and then you can find out,
right In the front of that book, what ad
vertising men look like. They are not as
vray-halred as are editors, nor as lcng
'.islred as reporters, but they have a great
deal more to eat and are much Jollier. In
fact. Jollying Is their profession.

There has been considerable comment of
late by members of the Tsxpayers' league
and others In connection with the man
agement of city affairs. In more then one
Instance Mayor Koutsky has been charged
with not looking after affairs closely
enough and with extravagance In the ex
penditure of city money.
When the attention of Mayor Koutsky
was called to these reports yesterday by a
Bee reporter he said: "In connection with
the expenditure of money I want to say
to the members of the Taxpayers' league
and citizens and taxpayers In general that
South Omaha now hns less office grafters
than for years past. Since I have occupied
the chair of the chief "executive I have
vacated all offices which were previously
maintained for purely political purposes.
By the vacating of these offices I am sav
ing to the taxpayers about $10,000 a year.
The records In the city clerk's office will
bear me out In this statement. As this Is
quite a large amount, I will explain that I
have consolidated the work In many of
the departments. In the first place, by not
appointing a street commissioner, the city
Is saved a salary of $S5 a month. Then
the services of a building Inspector, a
plumbing Inspector and a stock Inspector
were done away with. The work of these
Inspectors Is now performed by the city
engineer and a clerk.
"Every taxpayer, and citizen a well,
knows that my fire and police departments
are good workers. The members of these
departments attend strictly to their duties.
They know that this must be done, as I
notified them at the time of appointment
that any neglect would mean Immediate
relief from duty. I have made few changes
In either of these departments, and the
changes were not for political reasons.
"The street department has done excel
lent work this year and at a much less
cost than for any summer In the history
of the city. From what I can hear, tho
citizens generally were satisfied with tho
condition of the streets when cold weather
"I believe that If the people of South
Omaha would attend council meetings
oftener and see for themselves Just what
Is being done by the executive and the
council, there would be fewer complaints.
As for the kickers, not one In ten has any
Idea how affair are conducted, how taxes
are levied and collected or how appropria
tions are made."
When asked about a fire and police board
the mayor said: "Those who advocate a
fire and police board are, In my opinion,
only trying to boost themselves or their
friends Into Jobs. There Is no need of a
source of expense of this kind, especially
when It Is considered that the combined
departments consist of only thirty men.
If the people of South Omaha want a Are
and police board, I am willing, but I favor
the selection of members by the voters of
the city and not by the governor of tho
"As fsr as calling a special election la
the spring Is concerned and I have beard
It rumored that certain politicians want
one I am perfectly willing. The only ob
jection I have to the move Is the expense.
As everyone knows, this expense would
have to be borne by tho taxpayers."
Charter Revision Committee.
Mayor Koutsky has Issued a call for a
meeting of the charter revision committee
to be held at the council chamber on Mon
day night. This committee Is mfde" up of
these members: Mayor Frank Koutsky, K.
L. Howe, city treasurer; 8. C. Shrlgley,
city clerk; J. J. Fitzgerald, tax commis
sioner; A. H. Murdock, city .attorney; H.
L. Cohn, assistant city attorney; Herman
Beal, city engineer; members of the coun
cil, J. M. Tanner, Edward Copenharve,
Denna Allbery, R. B. Montgomery, J. J.
Breen, W. C. Lambert. T. J. O'Neill, John
McMillan, F. J. Freltag. H. M. Christie,
Dana Morrill. P. A. Wells, Joseph Murphv,
C. M. Hunt, B. E. Wilcox and A. L. Sutton.
An organization Is to be perfected at
this meeting and possibly subcommittees
may be appointed. When the subcommit
tees are named the members of the general
committee will be asked to send In recom
mendations In writing In order that they
may be considered. In making the call
for the meeting to be held Mouday night
the mayor expressed the desire that every
member of the committee be present. Tho
committee waa named by the council by a
resolution offered by Welsh at the last
meeting and unanimously adopted.
Christmas Pro arrant Prepared.
Christmas exercises will be held at tha
First Methodist Episcopal church Wednes
day evening. The program will be: In
vocation, Rev. M. A. Head; trio, "We're
All Polished Up for Christmas," Clara
Shumway, Ruth Miller, Harold Shevlln:
whistling so'.o, "Lady of Quality Waltzes,"
Alice F. Stire; song and chorus, "When
Good Old Kris Comes 'Round," Interme
diate classes; whistling solo, Alice F.
8tlre; concert recitation, "Telephoning
Santa Claus," primary classes; recitation,
"Christmas Eve In a Mining Camp,"
Bertha E. Clark, Albert B. Paine; solo,
"A Quiet Night," Mrs. H. C. Richmond;
remarks by Superintendent Jay Laverty;
whistling solo, "Old Kentucky Home,"
Alice F. Stire. Following the program
there will be a general distribution of
presents by Santa Claus and his assistants.
The recent rain caused two bad wash
outs, one In Missouri avenue at Sixteenth
atreet and the other In Twentieth street
Just south of N atreet. As soon as a re
port of these washouts reached the city
hall Mayor Koutsky and City Engineer
Beal Investtgsted. An order was at once
Issued for the fencing of the holes. Re
pairs will not be made, however, until
there la a change In the weather.
Tola la the season when the corporations
begin paying taxes. Yesterday tb Union
Stock Yards company and two of the banka
paid Id. As a general thing the corpora
tions are taking advantage of tb law and
ar paying only ons-half of the 1902 tax.
When the big concerns complete their pay
ments due this year there will be an op
portunity given the city treasurer to call
In a few outstanding warrants. The pres
ent system of making two payments of
taxes la not favored by the cfty officials
and an effort la to be made, ao It U stated,
to have thla section of the charter changed
when the legislature meets.
W certainly have a fin line of um
brellas and ar ahewlng thsm In gold, sil
ver, pearl and natural wood bandies. They
make a nice and useful present. A neat
walking atlck Is the correct thing for a
young gentleman. Godfrey, the Jeweler.

SAYS SIOUX CITY IS JEALOUS
Secretary Vtt's Remarks Abont the
Kick from the lp-Rlvr
"The Jobbers of Sioui City are now
complaining because of the fact that
Omaha has entered the South Dakota ter
ritory east of the Clack Hills," said Sec
retary L'tt of the Commercial club, "and I
notice that they are calling upon the
Northwestern to construct a Una from
Sioux City to Join ths Una at Bonesteel,
"This demand from Stoux City Is amus
ing when It Is known that tha town baa
the same rat. into th. Dakota towns as
Omaha has and tb. time Is almcst as good.
The trouble with th. people of the up
river town Is thst they are provoked be
cause Omaha Is In that territory at all.
Before the construction of the Elkhorn line
to Bonesteel that was Sioux City territory
exclusively. During th. wint.r montht
goods were shipped to Running Water, 8.
D., over the the Milwaukee road and
hauled to points In Nebraska and South
Dakota. In the summer months a Una of
boats were operated between fllcux City and
thes. points. The territory never brought
returns to the Northwestern line until Its
brsnch connecting that territory with
Omaha was constructed, and now It looks
like nerve for Sioux City to ask for a
line which cannot in any way Increase the
Income of th. Nortbwecstern.
SHRADER'S LAXATIVE FIG POWDER IS GOOD GRAVV
FOR THE POOR IN HEALTH.
All sickness originates from the stomach and kidneys. A few symptoms that will convince
you that the stomach is the starting point. When your stomach refuses to work, you refuse to
eat. You care for nothing, not even a headache, but you have it, with a bad taste in your
mouth. You become gloomy, irritable the only thing that works in you is the germ of dis
ease. Thus you become feverish, your kidneys inactive, uric acid passes into your blood and
some chronic complaint of some disease begins, for alvino poison forms and goes all through
your system. To insure health, take Shrader's Laxative Fig Powder. Fig Powder is made from
fresh evaporated figs and saline salts. Ask for a 1903 calendar, free, with every box of Fig
