proved lots, the Increase there being about
l-.iOO.ono. This le decreased In the total
by the two Items of unplatted lands and
unimproved Isnde, both of which naturally
how a falling off. This la due to the
fact that considerable land from these two
classes has been transferred to the Im
proved class. The (roes figures follow:

At the request of councilman and a num
ber of ritlsens the city attorney's office
has prepared an ordinance to require the
Omaha Oas company to move Its manu
facturing and storage plant from Ita pres
ent location at Twentieth and Center
atreets. As prepared the measure would
oust the plant from all residence neighbor
hoods and fix a slta along the liver bot
toms or elsewhere o ia to be a long dis
tance away from much habltated districts.
What the plana are about Introducing
the ordinance In the council are not known.
It Is the culmination of a fight property
owners adjacent to the gas tanks have been
making for years. They claim to have
been damaged In many ways and thet their
lives and property are constantly menaced
nd Injured.
The gas company has now gone Into
court to secure a mandamus to compel the
city to permit the building of a new gas
tank holder at the present location.

An unusual accident occurred Friday
morning at the new Redmond-O'Donahue

where a twenty-foot plank fell from the
roof to the main floor, through an elevator

The big atick was twenty feet long, three
i Inches thick and nearly a foot In width.
A workman was moving It from the roof
and let It fall when he could no longor
keep It In tow. The timber went down
with a deafening; crash, ripping two lad
tiers In twain in the deacent. On the sec
ond floor Charles Qulnche. a steamfltter,

ladders which waa struck by the plank.

Will Re Pleased te Come te Omaha
Afterward and Mayer
Thlaka that la All
William J. Bryan will give first aid to the
ome-comlng reception planned for him at
Lincoln and will do what he can for
Omaha's proposed reception later on.
Thla la the aubetance of Mr. Bryan a de
cision aa expressed In a letter from hlrrrre-
celved by Mayor Dahlman Friday morning.
The mayor, several weeks ago, proposed a
big welcome home for Bryan when he en
tered Nebraska from the east after his cir
cuit of the globe, and immediately wrote
Mr. Brjan aeking his sanction.
Lincoln Immediately expressed energetlo
ealnu-y of Omaha a presumption and an
nounced It would give the only genuine
Nebranka reception to Ita cltlsen, who,
fter hobnobbing with kings, waa worthy
of such an honor. Spurred by the fear that
Omaha might get In first, Lincoln cabled
Bryan. Mayor Dahlman merely wrote.
Hence Mr. Bryan concluded Lincoln had
flrat claim and therefore, aa a Just referee,
awarded the verdict to the capital, his
home city.
Mr. Bryan wrote July 4 from Hotel Cecil,
London1, whither Mayor Dahlman's missive
wbb addressed. He said:
Dear Dahlman: Tour letter received. Of
course I ahall be pleased to come to Omaha
and mt my friends there, but the Lin
coln people started their reception first,
and that is my home. I think there they
are entitled to the first day, ao will allow
them to arrange the reception for my ar
rival, and will come to Chnsha within a
week, if tt is desired, and see Omaha a pew
mayor and his constituents.
Mayor Dahlman thinks the Omaha recep
tion ought to be held Just the same a few
daya after they get through fellcitlng at
Lincoln, where Mr. Bryan'a next-door
neighbors once boasted that they voted
agalnet him and didn't deem him any better
than anyone else.
There ia more to the letter than the part
quoted, but the mayor saya It Is personal
and does not refer to politics or the next
democratic preaidentlal nomination.
Saloonman Wins Pair ef Goats at
Raffle aad la Sorry
ef It.
Ollle Kaneft. a genial dlapenser of the
cooling highball at Twenty-eighth and Far
nam atreeta. Is wondering If the loser In a
raffle la not' better off than the winner.
The other night a neighboring saloon man
raffled off a pair of goats and Kaneft took
chance. He won and for a few hon
waa greatly pleased. Then personal and
telephone Inquiries began to pour In re
gardlng an alleged goat farm which he was
suspected of being about to start. Inasmuch
aa his goats "have whiskers longer thsn
any buck ever wore, - Kaneft ' got a trifle
tired of the chaffing. But the trouble has
increased and applications for Jobs on the
goat farm are now contained In every mall.
It haa already coat Kaneft eighteen times
the worth of the goats In real drinks and
the end Is not In sight.

These are the enervating daya when,, as

They are fraught with danger to people
whose systems are poorly sustained; and
this leads us to say. In the Interest of the
less robust of our readers, that the full ef
fect of Hood's Parsaparilla Is such as to
suggest the propriety of calling this medi
cine something besides a blood purifier and
tonle aay, a sustaining diet. It makes It
much easier to bear the heat, assures re
freshing sleep and will without any doubt
avert much sickness at this time of year.
