(rimes People Kselted.
The people of Qrlmes, a suburb of Des
Moines, are excited over the strange action
of men being placed In the village ceme
tery to guard the grave of one of the
wealthy farmers of that village. Joseph
O'Donnell died last week In Davenport
and Saturday, the 11th Inst., was burled
at Grimes. Every nighi since that time
some one has stood guard over the grave
with firearms. Wild tales of threats of
enemies of Mr. O'Donnell to dig up his
body have been related as explanations
for the action. The fact Is Mr. O'Donnell
being fearful lest medical students should
dig up the body and dispose of it at some
college, made provision In his will for a
watch to he placed at his grave every
night for seyeral months. The relatives
are merely carrying out the provisions of

Thirty-five counties of this state will

the session of the legislature and If It be

It was universally understood that their
election was only a basis, first for an ap

of some of the residents of the Isle of

on good authority that exactly eighty

besides many women. The number of male
American residents on the Isle of Pines
Is generally estimated at 2no.
According to statements made by Havana
Americans, who were present, the move
ment Is essentially a Nueva Qerona affair
and no representatives of the larger land
Interests were present excepting Messrs.
Pearcy and Anderson, the latter being the
delegate to the I'nlted States congress.
William Mason, a leading American of
Santa Fe, an Inland town, protested against
the steps it was proposed to take on the
ground that public sentiment In the I'nlted
States would not be attracted by defiance
of the Cuban government and the defeat
of the pending treaty and that eventually
American control of the Isle of Pines
would only get a setback.
No Americans on the Isle of Pines ap
pear to expect a clash with the Cuban
forces for any reason on account of unjust
treatment. Most of the Cubans and all the
officials on the Isle are liberals. Some of
them are Inclined to tacitly approve tho
American anti-government movement.

This is a world of evolution. Approved
methods of n few years paft are now counted as
"out of date" and have given way to modern
Science in all its branches has made wonderful
brides in the past few years; mechanics nnd elec
tricity are vastly different ami improved from what
they were a few years ago.
Just as there has been marked advances in
science, mechanics, medicine nnd their kindred
brandies, so also have there been vast improve
ments in the Commercial World; this now brings us
closer to the point in view:
Business is conducted on two bases, namely:
cash and credit transactions.
If it today became necessary to conduct all busi
ness on a cash basis, the volume would immediately
shrink to a comparative nothing. For instance the
manufacturer can buy his material, manufacture
his rtrticles, sell to the retailer and lie in turn sell to
the consiimer before the maker and sometimes the
producer of the raw material has any cash returns.
It must therefore be very plain that credit plays the
all important part in th6 business dealings of tho
Everyone who buys on credit must depend upon
some future income with which to liquidate his in
debtedness. The man who has his labor to sell has
just the same right to figure on the future income
that his labor will bring, as the merchant or manu
facturer who depends ujMn the return from the sale
of his merchandise.
In spite of all this, up to a few years ago the only
class who was denied this privilege of using credit
was the working class.
Merchants, no matter how small, professional
men of very limited incomes, could easily obtain
credit, but the honest man or woman on. a modest
salary could not do so, for a sum in proportion to his
The first change of importance came with tho
arrival of the first installment credit house which
allowed the salaried man to purchase certain
amounts upon specified terms.
The installment business brought with it many
abuses some of which exist to this day in certain
establishments, and which have been the means of
creating a certain prejudice against this method of
This prejudice has rightfully existed where the
business has been wrongfully conducted.
In line with the general improvement of the
times The Peoples Store has placed its business upon
the most modern plan possible. It has eliminated
all the disadvantages and added all that is favorable.
The Peoples Store learned years ago that the
most effective way of increasing its business was by
being lenient to its customers. This leniency is well
known to the wage earners of Omaha, from whom
the Peoples Store receives its largest share of sup
port. Its customers know that payments cease
during sickness or loss of employment and that the
purchaser is not annoyed or troubled in any way.
The Peoples Store now announces its greatest
of all innovations beginning Monday, November
'20th, known as its
which means that in case of the death of the earning
member of the family the indebtedness due the
Peoples Store is immediately cancelled and a re
ceipt in full given free for the balance of the account.
This is an insurance for every man buying of
the Peoples Store, that in case of his death the in
debtedness will be cancelled and his family will be
benefited by this great financial assistance.
This conforms with the Peoples Store's modern
policy of giving helpful credit to all who need it.
If you want to buy where assortments are large
and prices uniformly low; where everything is ar
ranged for the convenience of the customer; where
any complaint is given serious attention and where
the above innovations are in use, then come to
