TONS of massive steel are hoisted and riveted into position daily in the navv Brandeis building. Every column and
crossbeam that is added brings nearer to completion the greatest and most modern store building in the west.
The spirit of progress is manifested in every branch of the great Brandeis organization. Our buyers, now in Europe,
report splendid progress. Our New York buyers are making determined efforts to surpass all achievements of the
past. The store itself will be a monument to western enterprise, while the stock will in every way be in keeping
with the magnitude and high character of the store. Every effort is being put forward to make the opening of the Brandeis store this fall a brilliant success. .

LIFE WITH MODERN CIRCUS
Veritable Town Made Up from the People
with the Show.
SOME FEATURES OF THE TENTED CITY
411 Sorts of People with All Sorts
of Religion, Pay Dar Every
Day and Family
"Fw people realise what a big- thins; a
modern circus Is." said James J. Brady
lust nlht. "1 mean one of the growth and
lse ot thi Ringllng Brothers. They have
1,280 people on their payroll, who corns from
all parts of the world and range In color,
white, black, brown and yellow. Nearly
very language Is spoken In this strange
colony and all religions are represented.
Most circus performers have strong re
ligious leanings and rarely a Sunday goes
by that the majority of them may not be
found in the church ot their choice. There
are Greeks, Catholics, followers ot Mo
hammed. Brahma and Buddha, Episcopa
lians, mostly Englishmen. Including Scotch
men; Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans and
Hebrews. When on the road services are
conducted by the minister with the show,
and although the dirr-rencea of faith are
so many. It Is refreshing to see how rever
ently attentive la each person.
"Ringllug Brothers employ S7 perform
ers, 123 billposters and advertising agents,
100 railroad men, known as 'raxorbacks;'
75 conks and kitchen helpers, 150 hostlers
and KO canvas men, property men, me-
nnjrerle keepers and less Important people.
"Every day In the week Is pay day for
some class of employes. The performers
have one, the canvas men one, the railroad
men another, and so on down the line.
This plan makes the handling of so many
pay envelopes an easy task. The lowest
salary Ii INI a .month. The canvas men
and grooms and billposters draw this
amount. In this class comes the clown
understudies. These clowns are made the
butt of the real clown's Jokes. The best
draw ITS to fl2& a month. The best riders
are paid from 75 to 1126, according to their
ability and reputation. Those who do- sen
sational aerial acts and novel gymnastic
feats get the fattest envelopes.
"The Clarksonian troupe of acrobats, the
Paeoma family of gymnasts, the Callnli
Calron troupe, and Tank (upside down)
Smith, draw salarlea ranging from 2&0
to a shade less than tl.OnO a week. Among
the riders, the Bedlnl family, father,
mother and two daughters, fresh from
Italy, and Gilbert Kldxed, the English
champion, and Albert Crandall draw splen
did salaries because of the novelty and
daring ot their bareback riding acts.
Families Travel Together.
"The majority of the circus people have
members of their families with them. Tou
will find men and their wives, sons, daugh
ters, cousins, uncles, aunts, nephews and
nieces with Ringllng Bros.' circus. The
circus travels In special trains. All of the
eighty-five cars required belong to the
management. The railroads only furnish
the motive power. One section Is com
posed of twenty-six sleeping cars. When
the circus Is spread out on the show lots
it uses up twelve acres of space. There
are twenty-four pavilions In all.
"The circus tent proper will seat 14.000
people. It Is . M0 feet long and tit feet
o BLOOD POISON
The first outward sign of Contagious Blood Poison is a small sore or
blister. As the poisonous virus becomes more firmly entrenched in the blood
a red eruption appears on the body, the month and throat ulcerate, the hair
begins to come out, glands in the neck and groin swell, copper-colored spots
appear on the breast, back, etc., and the unfortunate victim finds himself
diseased from head to foot. Mercury and potash do sot cure Contagious
Blood Poison; they shut the disease up in the system and remove the out
ward symptoms for awhile, but when the treatment is left oS the trouble
returns. Then the system being weakened from the action of these strong
minerals the disease makes more rapid headway than before S S. S. is the
antidote tut Contagious Blood Poison. It cures permanently and certainly
by going down into the blood and removing every vestige of the virus. It
is free from all minerals, and while purifying the blood it builds up the entire
system by its fine tonic effects. S. S. S. destroys every particle of the poison
and removes all danger of transmitting it to others. S. S. S. cares Con
tagious Blood Poison because it is a perfect blood purifier. Book with
Instructions for self treatment and any medical advice free.

Expenses of the Enterprise.
"It costs 17,400 a da,y to meet the ex
penses of the big enterprise. Everybody
Is fed by the. management. Two perform
ances are given every day except Sunday
during a season of seven months. The cir
cus carries a doctor, chaplain, veterinary
surgeon, postmaster, detective, barber,
blacksmith, storekeeper and about every,
thing that goes with a well regulated vil
lage except the charter. To build up and
tear down a village with a population of
nearly 1,300 people every day without fric
tion or delay Is one of the wonders of this
age of system." ,
This gTeat American circus will exhibit
In Omaha at Twentieth and Paul Wednes
day next, and give two performances, after
noon and night.

former location of The Bee), have received
from Treasurer H. J. Penfold of the Ak-Bar-Ben,
the order for the roll tickets for
the coming Ak-Sar-Ben carnival. These

Established by Harriman.
WILL BE CONDUCTED ON ALL LINLS
All Tourists Will Wear Roses antl

DlAMOKPfl-eanoim, lfth and Harney.
E. H. Harriman is to follow the lead of
the Michigan Central railroad In beautify
ing the right-of-way of the various roads
under his control. To carry out this scheme
the officers of the Union Paclflc are plan
ning to build several large greenhouses
along the main line of the road In Ne
braska. Wyoming, 1tah and other districts
to provide every table In the dining cars
of the entire system with a fresh bouquet
ot cut flowers at every meal. In addition
to table and other decorations It la planned
to grow flowers on a scale sufficiently Urge
to allow a free distribution of v tes u
a omen and carnations or other aaunab!e
flower, not only in dining cars, but to pas
sengers In every car of every train, and n
winter as well as In summer, the lea being
to make patrons feel that the fiowtm are a
part of tna trip over this road at. J run
precious little souvenirs.
The greenhouses probably will be located
at Grand Island, Cheyenne, Ltenver and
In California and In the territory of the
Sunset route in the south the company has
no trouble In getting outdoor flowers all
year. But even In these districts the
scheme of flowers for passengers and car
decoration's la to be enlarged upon. Dining
rooms along all lines are to be supplied
freely with plants and blooms. The Cali
fornia and southern resources with the
greenhouses to be built ang the central
route will put the I'nlon, Southern Pacific
and Oregon Short Line In a position where
they may become known as the floral lines,
an appellation officers of the Harriman lines
hope to merit.

Omaha Gets Slona ( ly Stork.
The first tralnload of stock over the Ash
land cut-oCC arrived Saturday over vue
Burlington from Osmond. Osmond Is on
the Great Northern line west of Sioux City
and Is 100 miles nearer to Sioux City than
to Omaha. Stockmen as well as the Bur
lington officials are elated that this busi
ness should come to Omaha with the Sioux
City market so much nearer and think It
augurs well for the Omaha market. The
Burlington Ih figuring on a new tariff for

NEWSY FRENZIED FINANCIER
Little Street Vendor Goes to Detention
Home to Conqner Short
Morris Ratner, known to some of his
friends as Max Rosenblum and to others
as Joe Johnson, stands accused In Juvenile
court of being a freraled financier. Proba
tion Officer Bernstein, with his muck rake,
succeeded In breaking up a little "graft"
Morris had with the street car boys as
his victims. Morris Is a bright young
newsboy, whose methods have caused him
to be suspended from the Newsboys' club.
According to one of the street car men
who testified In the case before Judge K
teHe Saturday morning:, young Ratner told
tliem pitiful stories about being an orphan
with a large family on his hands to sup
port, and by these appeals to their sym
pathy got trequent contributions from
U.em. The other evening a collection was
taken up for him at the car barn and
something like a huif a dollar contributed
to him. He was known to them as Joe
Johnaon. Sometimes he varied the story
by telling them he had to raise SO or 40
cents before he could get bis usual supply
of papers to sell.
Morris stood for all this testimony, but
when one of his newsboy companions told
the court he was a "moocher," be flared
up and got angry.
"I ain't no moocher. You -can't say I'm
a moocher," he said, hotly, and he had to
be soothed down by Judge Estelle.
Probation Office r Bernstein said Mori is
waa a rustler and sold lots of papers, but
was usuVlly late In paying for thein.
Judge Estelle decided he hadn't gone very
far wrong and committed him to the De
tention school for a week. The boy's
father was one of the witnesses in court.
He dented the statements the boy Is said to
have made that he received beatings if he
came home without money.
Judge Estelle committed Jack Neu to
the Industrial school at Kearney, on
grounds he Is an Incorrigible.

SHOWDOWN ON ENGINEERSHIP
Mayor Will Make Mo Farther domina
tion and Council Will
Have to Act.
City Engineer Rosewater is willing to
stake all claims he may have to the office
for the next three years upon his conten
tion that he holds over because of the
failure of Jesee Lowe to qualify. At his
request Mayor Dahlman will not send thu
name of a candidate for city engineer to the
council Tuesduy night. That body will be
compelled to consent to Hone water or elect
a candidate of Its own to start Ullgution
to oust the Incumbent,
Councilman are nut willing to say what
they will do. They are without a strong
and mutually agreeable candidate and are
somewhat at sea about the legal phases uf
the matter. By Tuesday night, however, 11
is supposed the majority will know what it
wants to do and will either subside or
draw up the Hues for a new fight.
Councilman Elsaaser announced Saturday
morning that he waa through with the
light on the mayor and Rosewater.
The case of Thomas P. Lee, whom the
mayor has insisted shall remain as city
prosecutor, looks somewhat different. Some
time ago all the councilmen except Zlmniaii
and Jackson petitioned the mayor in writ
ing to pass up Lee and nominate H. S.
Daniels for the place. The mayor con
tinued to send In Lee's name. At the last
council meeting McUovern voted to con
firm Lee tor the first time, giving a total
of rive votes so disposed.
The mayor say thai so far as he Is
concerned tlR-re is no change in the situation.
