and Hunted Ills pipe (Hay pipe).
"Aren't we going V buy something for
Freddies birthday ?" came th question
from the wife, which struck Morrison's
heart like a dart from an archer's bow.
Then Morrison took the guitar down
from the wall and walked out Into the
twilight of the evening hours.
Then the arr"st, police court and dis
charge. There is a SHj-Ing that a woman seldom
does tilings by halves. She generally goes
nil the way or goes to the stable before
the race Is cnlled. 8h wants the last
word, usually gets It, is entitled to It and
few would say h"r nay or call the police If
she exceeded her time limit lit the tiso of
current language. Miss Jennie. Pavls, who
was fined $5 and costs by the police Judge
Friday morning, when she was arraigned
on the charge of drunkenness and disor
derly conduct, made no efforts even when
brought before the police judge to conceal
the fact that she had been out the night
before, worshiped at the shrine Of Bac
chus, referred to in Webster's as the aon
of Jupiter and Semele, and then disturbed
the pene and good order of the city as
well as her own raiment. The mere sight
of the woman would have brought tears
ent season. I
After Chase Green,, assistant Janitor at
the people's bar, had removed the mole
cules of dust which had settled on the
fixtures and Prosecutor Tom Lee had
viewed with pardonable pride a new vest
he did not win on the recent primaries
Magistrate Crawford mounted his dias anj
the band played "Clod Save the. City Hall."
Then Joseph Dalton and James IS.
Barry, stepfather and stepson, were hi -ralgned,
the former on the charge of
drunkenness and the latter as complain
ing witness. As evidence of a conflict which
occurred Thursday evening at the Dalton
flat, 70S South Sixteenth street, the de
fendant presented an eye which would
not look well in print and which waa said
to have been discolored by having been in
ths direct line of movement of Barry's
fist. Barry showed a Up which he alleged
waa caught between his Stepfather's teeth
during the melee.
' DaltOn testified the boy had been con

ters would not square with the social
alignments, and added that the women In
question were tenants at the flat managed
by his wife. lie declared hla wife had
told him repeatedly to rebuke the boy,
-which he did Thursday evening, only to
receive a blow on his right eye, which
could not perform its full function before

Dalton's left eye waa doing yeoman serv
ice for both optics, his right eye was In
sack cloth and ashes. Toung Barry re- i
torted by calling his stepfather the most
good-natured liar he ever heard. The
Judge dismissed Dalton, and at the same

' ' '
, Richard Morrison, a colored -man, with
an end-of-the-world countenance and a
heart filled with sorrow, was arrested
Thursday night by Patrolman Hudson, who
could sea nothing but evil In a colored
man who would sell his guitar for a pit
tance. Hudson sent Morrison and the
guitar In for "Investigation." But when
the matter was explained to the police
Judge Morrison was discharged. .
Morrison was trying to sell his guitar
that he might buy his baby a birthday
present. With no thoughts of crime In
his heart the man went out from his home
in South Omaha Thursday evening and
tried to sell that which he cherished the
most of his worldly goods his old guitar.
He did not think that some people might
look askance at a colored man trying to
sell a guitar or that the taint of suspicion
was on him. The prattle of that little
baby of his was as sweet to him as the
sound of his guitar. Thursday, being the
fourth birthday anniversary of the first
born of the Morrison household, the father
found himself without coin of the realm
with which to exchange for some little
token In remembrance of the occasion.
All Thursday afternoon be twanged the
strings of his Instrument and made sweet
muslo for the bright-eyed youngster, who
played on , the floor, unconscious of the
heart-aches which are part of the after
brow, but she took the whole thing as part
of the passing show, paid her fine, went
home and then looked Into her mirror.
Then she cried.

INTEREST IN SHOW GROWS
All LoYers of the Automobile Flock to the
SIDE LINES PLANNED FOR VISITORS
Moilns Plrtare Displays Are la Per
fect Order and Afford Great
Pleaaare to Urgr
All Omaha seems to be interested in the
automobile show, which is In progress at
the Auditorium and the attendance has
been far In excess of anything which was
anticipated by the promoters of the show.
Especially is the number of people who
have come from out in the state gratifying,
and many machines have been sold to these,
all the dealrrs selling a goodly number.
Several side Issues of the show have been
planned for the entertainment of the
visitors, one of which waa a hill climbing
contest Friday morning between a Bulck
and a Reo and a five mile race between the
same machines. In the distance race the
Bulck won by nearly a mile and in the hill
climbing contest the Bulck won by about
a block. The race was up the Cass street
hill, starting at Seventeenth street.
Eastern manufacturers of machines are
taking great Interest in the show and have
sent some of their best men to exhibit the
macjitnes. The representatives of the
machines sold by the Powell-Bacon com
pany are 1). 8. Dubois and Tracy Holmes
of the Franklyn factory, W. O. Erwln and
C. J. Powns of the White company, W. C.
Palmer of the Pope Toledo and E. Grun
feldt of the Baker Electric.
Moving; Plctnre Shows.
Manager Glllan, by the aid of some of
the stage hands from the local theaters,
has made great Improvements In the mov
ing picture exhibit of the Vandurbilt races.
They have added an accompaniment to
the pictures which make the display very
attract) and realistic.
The Derlght company has sold several
machines since the .opening of the show
among -the number being Stoddard-Dayton
machines to F. II. Davis and E. V. Lewis.
The Powell-Bacon company sold a model
O. Franklyn to J. M. Wool worth, Friday
morning. The large six cylinder thirty
horse power Franklyn bought sometime ago
by Nels B. Updike arrived by express Fri
day morning and was at once taken to the
show where It Is attracting considerable
attention. The thirty-horse power of the
Franklyn Is said to equal fifty-horse power
of any of the other make.
The Ramblers shown under the direction
of Clarke U. Colt, also form one of the
features of the show. Complete machines
are shown as well as machines with the
working parts exposed and machines which
have been In service for some time, show
ing the wear and tear and the little cost for
Owners snd admirers of electric
machines will be glad to know that a
new Improved rectifier for charging the
batteries Is now on the market. The only
objection to electric cars heretofore has
been the charging question, and with this
rectifier the problem seems to be solved in
a satisfactory manner. The cost of charg
ing batteries with this new rectlner Is a
great deal less than with the old methods,
and an electric car may now be kept at
an average expense of not more than $4
per month. There was some delay In this
Mercury Arc rectifier getting here, but It
arrived by express Friday and wag placed
in the Fredrickson exhibit and shown In
The two highest priced cars In Omaha
are the Peerless and tne Thomas r lyer.
They seem to-be close competitor an 1
the merits of each are being discussed and
comDared. Both ' cars always are sur
rounded by a circle of admirers.
A great attraction is the display of Pres.
to-Olite gas tanks, which are exhibited
In the Fredrickson booth.
Probably the leader In four-cyllndor
machines Is the Thomas Flyer, the mlle-a-mlnute
car, which has a seating capacity
of seven persons. It is fifty-horsepower
and the largest as well as the swiftest
automobile in the city. It is also fitted
with more anti-friction bearings than any
other car in the world. The car has many
exclusive features, one of which is the
locking device, which prevents the car
from backing down hill.
The Peerless, the car made famous by
Barney Oldfleld In his racing exploits, is a
great favorite with those who desire a
high grade, high priced car.
Machines sold by H. Fredrickson: Peer

McDonald, Lincoln; Bulck touring car, L.
I. Abbott; Bulck Runabout, A. H. Fetters;
Haynes, Charles Kelly. '
An lt90 model of the Haynes Is shown
in the Fredrickson exhibit. This is the
first Haynes brought to Nebraska and one
of the first automobiles In the city. It lias
been in almost constant use ever since
and Us owner, E. W. Damoreaux, reports
that it seldom sees a repair man. This is
a great recommendation for the Haynes
and doubtless there will be a lurge num
ber of that make sold here this season.
