The date for the convention Is nearly two
months earlier than usual, the executive
committee having made the Innovation at
the request of many retailers and many
Jobbers as well, on the ground that an early
convention will be better for both. The
retailers always kill two birds with one
stone by selecting their stock of spring
goods when they come to Omaha for the
convention. It is thought they will order
their goods earlier if the convention Is
held In November, and this will give the
Jobbers a better idea of bow much goods
they want from the factories and at the
same time allow them to make early ship
ments in the spring. Last spring, and in
fact every spring for years, the Jobbers
have found difficulty In getting enough

CLOUDS SPOIL THE ECLIPSE
Dark iky Prevents Father Riga; aod
Students from Seeing; th
Father Rlgge, the astronomer at Crelgh
ton university, Is not at all pleased with
the package dealt him by the weather man
Saturday morning. The good professor and
a number of earnest student had risen at
1:30 to catch a glimpse of the total eclipse
of the moon, only to find the sky over
clouded and no moon In sight. At the best
they would have had only thirteen minutes
of observation, for the eclipse began at
6:10 and the moon set at 6:23, but they were
cheated out of this. Over the western part
of the continent and the Paclflo ocean the
eclipse was visible If clear weather - pre
vailed. At Omaha there waa no sign of It
because of the cloud.
"There was nothing particularly notable
about the eclipse, anyway," said Father
Rlgge, but he did not deny that he would
liked to have had a glimpse of It Just the
same. If only for th benefit of th students.
A partial eclipse of the sun Is due August
19, but It will be risible only In the ex
treme northwest, so far as th United
State Is concerned.

After listening to some of the complain

"No, sir, never," was th response from
'Did you ever see anybody else throw

Judge Sutton then gave the boys a se

Such was said to hav been th remark
of Alfred Beit, the diamond king, reputed
power behind the Rhodes throne and rich
est man in the world, concerning himself.
Belt was a quiet, unobtrusive-like man,
well balanced and well groomed. Polite
and courteous to all who came Into con
tact with him. he was reticent to a de
gree, and never spoke of his own enter
prises. He had traveled extensively and
read much, but cared little about impart
ing Information to others.
He did not look like a millionaire, and
was always very plainly dressed. His mild
vole and sunny-tempered optimism belted
the real character of the man.
- His eyes were peculiarly those of a
dreamer large, soft nut-brown eyes that
shone out of his clear-cut face.
Belt war a ready giver to charity and
made annual donations to many hospitals.
He quite recently gave 1500,000 to Hamburg
university and founded a professorship of
colonial history at Oxford university. He
is said to have placed his purse at the dis
posal of the grand rabbi of France when
funds were needed for the Dreyfus cam
paign. : lie was fond of riding, of golf and of
good pictures. His collection of Louis XVI
furniture was considered one of the finest
In Europe, and on the rare occasions he
entertained he did so In a princely man
ner. At a ball In South Africa several
years ago he presented each of his 800
women guests a large diamond as a
souvenir of the occasion.
He died a bachelor, although It was at
one time reported that he was about to
marry Mrs. Adolf Ladenburg. Like many
other great men, he was too absorbed In
the realisation of his ambition to devote
any time to domestic affairs, and, al
though kind-hearted, he earned the reputa
tion of being a woman-hater.
