AND SUCH BARQAINS Their equal lias never been known in Omaha
and may never again be repeated. Just imagine everything in our store is of
fered at discounts ranging up to 50 per cent. '
We are determined to make a clean sweep of our entire stock before mov
ing into our new store everything you can possibly need in housefurnishings
are to be had here to force the selling we are offering even-thing in our store
at an immense discount.
Furthermore, offering a discount enables you to see exactly what reduc
tions have been made.
The discounts are taken off our regular prices which we guarantee to bo
absolutely the lowest in Omaha.
All goods are marked in plain figures and the discount is deducted at tha
time of the purchase.
These discounts you must bear in mind will remain in effect during the
life of the sale.
Those who neglect to buy everything they need now or are likely to need
in the near future are missing a great saving opportunity.

Brown nnd Prohibition.
"The people of Nebraska will have to

WATCHES- rcnicr, 15th and Dodg eta J
If the nnner Is mil'llshed weekly, then
weekly publlca'l 'ns.wlll be sufficient." From
analogy, therefore, we conclude that If the
publication of the constitutional notice Is
begun in a dally It should be continued In
such dally each Issue thereof during the
three months next preceding the general
election: If published In a triweekly, that
It should be published triweekly In such
paper for the three months, and If pub
lished In a weekly, then weekly during
snld period, nnd that It would be unsafe to
charge from one issue to another.
As to the legality of the first publication
ln a newspaper supplement, Webster defines
a supplement as "that which supplies a
deflcit-ncy; that which fills up, completes,
or makes an addition to something already
onranlzed. arranged, or set apart: a P'irt
added to, or a continuation of." This
definition was approved by the circuit court
of Ohio In the case of State against Board
of Commissioners, 16 Ohio, circuit court 218.
The Standard dictionary defines a supple
ment as "something added that supplies a
deficiency, especially an addition to a pub
lication. In a newspaper It Is often a
separata sheet; In a literary or encyclo
paedic work some times an entire volume."
A supplement to a dally newspaper,
therefore. Is a legal part of surh dally
paper: a supplement to a weeklv is a legal
part of surh weekly paper, and a supple
ment to a trlweeklv newspaper la a legal
part of such triweekly paper, and a publica
tion within the required period of a consti
tutional amendment election notice In such
supplement or supplements would, in the
opinion of this department, be a legal
publication of such notice and a compliance
with the constitutional provision above re.
ferrd to. Notice, knowledge, or publicity
Is the end sought for tn such cases, and
rubllcntlon In a supplement to a newspaper,
being a part of such paoer, accomplishes
this purpose ns practically and effectually

Paralyala Dae to Bullet Wound Will
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Aug. . (Special.)
By means of an X-ray photograph the
bullet from the revolver of John Hamlin
fired Into the back of Rachel Engel has
been located. It is found to have gone
through the spine, to have injured the
spinal cord seriously and to be lodged
Just within. The picture shows that the
spinal column was splintered, the splinters
of bone being quite clearly seen. An op
eration was undertaken, but the location
of the bullet was such that it would be
dangerous to remove It. Several small
pieces of bone and a scale of the bullet
were removed and the entire wound
cleansed. Paralysis will no donbt be perm
No complaint has yet been filed against
Hamlin, who Is being held until further de
velopments In the case. Hamlin has not
asked for an attorney as yet, and does not
seemdeslrous of having any. In an Inter
view he stated that neither Miss Rachel
Engel or her stepfather had ever done any
thing to cause him to have enmity toward
her. He realizes that he Is In a dilemma
and protests that he never said he wished
that the bullet which struck Miss Engel
would have struck Smith. When he made
the remark, ho states, he meant he wished
It would have struck him (Ham'ln).
