There bus been a great deal said la the papers lntely about early closing.
,TV wish to state our views Id this paid ad as we feel the public is Interested In
this early rinsing movement. We were solicited recently by a committee to sign
for closing at B o'clock every evening, excepting Saturday, and to keep open on
that evening until 10 o'clock.
We did not sign for the following reasons:
, We are the pioneers In the early cloning movement. July 1st, 1810, we
beran by closing onr store every Saturday at rt oYlook, and two years later, July,
1001, we announced that we would close every Saturday during July and August
at 1 o'clock and during the other months, Saturdays at 6 o'clock. It Is still In
To have signed the agreement for 5 o'clock closing would be a step backward,
which we will never take, nnd we are nlrendy doing much better than that by our
c lafks, as will be seen by the following statement: We give every employee, who
has been In our service one yenr or more, a vacation with full pay. Our em
ployees ore unanimously In favor ef our present arrangement. And why should
they not be, as It gives them during a year nn advantage of 208 bours time more
than any other store In our line, even with the new arrangement, besides putting
ts-M time In a shape to be of some use to tbern.

If all goes well will be released probably
tomorrow. The ten members of ths crew
of the Scguranca are pleasantly situated at

ber only two are seriously 111. They are
Thomas McQill, one of the Seguranca's
stewards, ' and Vincent Novo, a fireman.
McGlil is resting comfortably and some
what better. Vincent Novo, however. Is
quite ill. Dr. Doty said he could not
definitely state whether these men are suf
fering from yellow fever. The bacteriologi
cal examination would not be completed
before tomorrow morning.
It was announced tonight that of the ten
members of the crew of the Scguranca,
under detention, eight were suffering from
malarial fever only, and that, while there
was still some doubt regarding the fireman
and steward It was probable that they
were suffering from the same form of fever.
Wm Fabricates a Story of Coming:
Marriages and Gets Large
An Indianapolis girl conjured up a re
markable fabrication of stories, .sensation
ally and pathetically reciting the romance
of a mythical fiance and a broken wed
ding, for the unique purpose of Inducing
her mother to buy her clothes. The young
woman. Miss Mabel Jones, bought herself
an engagement ring with her savings,
and then, after having accomplished her
purpose toward replenishing her wardrobe,
sent herself a telegram . announcing that
her lover had been killed by a fall from
a horse It has now developed that Miss
Jones' love affair had no existence except
In her own fervid Imagination.
The truth was finally wrung from Miss
Jones, after she had been subjected to a
most severe cross-examination by ths very
men she had Implicated In the affair by
the use of their names. So trying was the
ordeal that Miss Jones" mother, Mrs. Frank
Arbuckle, swooned In the midst of ths
questioning and was revived only after an
hour's arduous work. A state of collapse
followed, and early this morning she was
again unconscious. .
With her mother unconscious on the
floor and the other members of her family
Imploring her to tell the truth, Miss Jones
sobblngly confessed that the story of her
contemplated wedding was manufactured
by herself; that she had ooUgrtt her own
engagement, ring and even written, with
her own hand, the telegram telling of her
sweetheart's tragic death.
Continued questioning, much the same as
that to which a witness on cross-examination
Is subjected, began to have Its effect
on Miss Jones. She showed signs of waver
ing, and Just then her another swooned.
This wrung jhe truth from the young
First of all she admitted that the wed
ding story was a pure fabrication. She
said she wanted more and nicer dresses,
and that she had created the wedding
myth In order to Induce her parents to buy
her expensive dresses. Bhe told them she
had met a man named Benjamin, from
St. Louis, who was a high official of the
Canadian railroad, and that he was going
to call. Miss Jones afterward explained
that she had got Benjamin's address from
a railroad folder, which Benjamin had left
In her employer's office.
As time progressed and her parents In
sisted on knowing mor about her St.
Louis admirer. Miss Jones told of numer
ous telegrams and letters she had received,
both from him and from his mother. Fi
nally she announced that the wedding was
set for June 14, and she produced a hand
some diamond ring, which she Said was a
betrothal gift from her sweetheart.
To make her story good, she carried
home a picture, which she said had been
sent her. This was Constantino's picture,
which had come Into her possession. The
wedding ring had been purchased with her
own money. These facts were admitted
between sobs OS Miss Jones continued her
'As the day for the wedding approached
Miss Jones commenced tq plan to get away
from the event. Then It was that she oon.
celved the ruse of her fiance's death. She
wrote a telegram saying: "Clyde was killed
while riding his horse," and sent It to
herself by a messenger boy. Indianapolis

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. July 0.-Speclal.)-Th
death of Colonel Daniel 8. Lamont last
week removed from earth a man whose
record was unique. Lamont was the most
potential force in smoothing the pathway
of Orover Cleveland towards a second
nomination. Without him the case would
have been hopeless. Cleveland lacked the
elements of popularity. He was not a
"mixer." He was utterly devoid of tact
and finesse. He failed to appreciate the
foibles of his fellows. From March 5,
1RS5. when he first entered the White
House, until the day he left to give place
to Benjamin Harrison, Grover Cleveland
never won to himself a score of personal
friends. But Daniel S. Lamont did that
very thing for him. As "private secret
tary" and afterwards "secretary to the
president" Colonel Lamont exhibited tact
and diplomacy of the highest order. He
demonttrated clearly that he was of that
build that had he been assigned to ths
diplomatic corps he would have made a
mark In the world which would have placed
his name among those cf the greatest
diplomats of the earth, He had a hard
task In serving Grover" Cleveland. That
gentleman was brusque and even rude to
his callers. He antagonized men who
should have been his warmest friends;
notably his former associates In Buffalo.
Among these was Daniel Lockwood. Lock
wood placed the name of Grover Cleveland
on the democratic ticket for sheriff, mayor,
governor and president, and yet within five
days from the hour he was Inaugurated
president Mr. Cleveland had succeeded In
making a bitter enemy of his old friend.
During all the years between 18S6 and 1889
Daniel Lockwood never entered the White
1 louse. After two years In office Mr.
Cleveland asked Lockwood to accept a
position In the federal service. Lockwood
spurned the offer, but Lamont succeeded
in patching up peace and Lockwood ac
cepted the office. This is but one Inci
dent showing the value of the services
of Mr. Lamont to his chief. No man ever
had a more faithful ally. He was always
on hand to act as the buffer and he never
made a mistake. But for Lamont. Grover
Cleveland would never have been nominated
a second time. During the past seven
years he has not been much In the public
eye. But In his death Grover Cleveland
has lost his very best friend and the
country has lost one of Its very ablest
Fight for Pare Ballot.
Just across the line in Virginia they are
having some warm politics, but none of it
Is so warm as a fight to test the efficacy
of a pure election law the sol'ons of the
Old Dominion passed some time ago. This
law imposes a heavy fine or Imprisonment,
or both, on any man who spends money
In an election In behalf of any candidate,
or promises directly or Indirectly to do so.
At the head and front of the agitation
that lead up to the enactment of the law
was the Richmond News-Leader, whose
editor, A. B. Williams, Is regarded as one
of the ablest writers In the south. It
fought early and late for the enactment of
the bill, 'and has never failed to drive a
peg In behalf of the purity of the ballot.
But recently there was a primary election
In Richmond, and one of the friends of
Mr. Williams was a candidate. There had
to be some work done In a certain pre
cinct, and Williams gave his check for
126 to have it done. Then the grand Jury
was called together to investigate some
alleged violations of the pure election law.
It was rumored that the Williams trans
action was under consideration, and this
brought out a signed editorial from Mr.
Williams, In which he admits the charge,
but claims that he had a right to spend
the money. It Is said on every hand that
the law Is so plain In Its application to
this particular case that there is nothing
left for the grand Jury to do but return
Here will be the spectacle of the highest
apostle of pure election being the first to
fall under the ban of the very law he was
most assiduous In bringing to a passage.
The whole matter will be watched with
absorbing Interest, for Its outcome will
demonstrate whether the law Is to be a
living thing, or whether It Is to become
a dead letter.
SOME DELUSIONS OF DIET
Flotltlonn Names Applied to Moth of
What Is In Common lie
at th Table.
George K. Holmes, chief of division of
foreign markets, bureau of statistics, of
the United States Department of Agricul
ture, prepared for the--year book of the
department a treatise on the peculiarities
of consumers In their systems of market
ing and the delusions they allow them
selves to be placed under or blunder Into
themselves. The digest has been considered
serviceable for reprinting In pamphlet
form under the title of "Consumers' Fan
cies." The pamphlet points out the mistake peo
ple of small means make In always se
lecting the choice or most expensive cuts
of meats, when many of the unsought
cheaper parts of the animal are equally
or even more nutritious. It quotes a
meat trade's Journal on recent prices as
follows: Poterhouse steak, 90 cents; prime
rib, IS cents; sirloins, 11 cents; round, I
cents; rump, T cents; neck pieces, about
t cents, per pound, respectively. It com
ment In the following strain:
'Although epicureans admit and chem
ists demonstrate that the neck piece Is
toothsoms and nutritious. It bears the low
est price. In fact, it would hardly be
considered respectable to ask the butcher
for a piece of the neck. Perhaps a low
order of proficiency in the housewife's
cooking In the past gave the neck piece
its low place. The story might have been
different had the housewife of former
times possessed the French housewife's
ability to utilise meats In the making of
attractive and delicious dishes." The point
of the argument Is that cheap cuts are
as good as dear when Judiciously se
lected and properly cooked.
The pamphlet also treats of the delusion
that exists In th terms applied to va
rious subsistence commodities by which
their sal is Influenced. Note th follow
ing: "The amount of "Canada' lamb sold
In the Vnlted States Is enormous. The
word 'Canada' has the same magical effect
upon lamb prices that the word 'Philadel
phia' has upon spring poultry or that
'Long Island' on fresh eggs. These fic
tions seem to sell the product, and the
eating public appears to feel satisfied.
By tacking ths word .Canada onto his
product the butcher is enabled to get I
cents more per pound for it, or, If he ad
heres to ths normal prices his customers
think they are getting something unusual
for their money. In certainly 6 per cent
of the cases they are gsttlng plain domestlo
lamb, and about fifty times out of lOOxare
not getting lamb at all. but mere mutton."
Many other commodities are set forth
under their respective delusive titles with
the same unreserved treatment of the de
ceptions yractlced in regard to them.

this Is a mistake, and that the law simply
has the effect of changing the terms of Ihe
officials so that they must be chosen again
this fall. This Is the view which has been
taken by Representative Warner of Lancas
ter county, one of the Introducers of the
various biennial election measures. It Is
explained that the defect In the commission
bill, which Is a special measure, arises from
the fact that the omnibus biennial bill had
referred to ths election of Commissions and
fixed the date on even numbered years.
With this fact In mind the provision was
omitted from the special act. Several Lan
caster county men Interested in the matter
have been advised by Deputy Attorney Gen
eral Thompson that It will be necessary to
place the names of candidates for commis
sioner on the ballots.
Riflemen to Compete.
Monday morning the state rifle competl-
tlon for the choice of members of the Ne
braska team to Sea Grit, N. J., will begin
at Kearney. The range Is on an Island In
the middle of the Platte river, so that there
Is no danger of damage from stray bullets.
The revolving Texas targets are to be used.
Four have been put In rlace, so that num
ber Of squads can be at work at one time.
These targets are made to rotate on a pivot
at the center in such a way that the marker
In the pit does his work while the moat
recently used end of the target is down,
thereby obviating all danger.
The contest, which will last during the
greater part of the week, Is for the purpose
of choosing fifteen marksmen from the Na
tional Guard to attend the national com
petition. There Is considerable rivalry
among the thirty-four or thirty-five par
ticipants for the Nebraska honors, since It
Is understood that President Roosevelt
takes a personal Interest In marksmanship
among the soldiers, and may attend the
contest at Sea Grit for at least one day.
Lieutenant Colonel McLaughlin, Inspector
of small arms practice In the National
Guard, has been assigned to have charge
of the contest.
Will Lincoln Get Ken Offices f
There i some talk among local Burling
ton officials to the effect that the car ac
counting service of the road will be removed
from Chicago to Lincoln. This change
would involve the transfer of the clerical
force in the office, numbering about 250
persons. There is considerable speculation
as to the changes which would ensue and
among other things It Is claimed that there
Is a possibility that Superintendent Barnes'
Burlington transportation service will be
brought to Lincoln, while his assistant, C.
L. Eaton, will be left at Omaha, whence he
was removed recently. The reason for the
new move, according to the reports, is the
difficulty of managing the car service of
the road from the eastern city, because of
the great westward extension of the road's
mileage. The reported transfer is also as
sociated with the prospective great North
ern connection. . H
