IMPELLED BY RECENT DEPREDATIONS
Dit Firearm Dealer Bars Revolvers
of Certalo Broad aad Siae
la Already ' Ex-haaated.
Due to the general tear caused by recent
murder, holdups and burglaries the hard
ware retailers of Omaha have been reaping
a harvest of profit on the sale of revolvers
this week. William Townsend of the Town-
send uun company looked over me dookb
of the company Friday morning and found
that the sale of revolvers since last Bun
day w as about equal to that of the entire
six months previous. The other gun stores
of the city report a similar condition.
"We have had such a business that the
supply of certain makes of revolvers Is
running Very . low." said Mr. Townsend.
"In fact, we haven't a gun left In one size
of Smith it Wesson."
'Women have been here by the dosens
and bought revolvers. The majority of
them said they wanted the weapons to
keep In their rooms, but a good many
were working girls, who go to their homes
any time between 6 and 10 o'clock at night
and they wanted the guns to carry on the
street. Some bought very small revolvers
to carry Inside their waist fronts, and
others bought larger guns to carry in a
belt under their coats,"
Mr. Townsend thinks a revolver kept him
from being robbed a few nights ago on
Dodge street across from the high school.
Three men stopped tn the shadow of a tree
ahead of him and separated, two going on
on side and one on the other, lie hid his
diamond ring and stick pin In his clothes
and placed his revolver iu Ills overoout
pocket. When he came to the trio one
stepped out and asked him for a match,
which looked suspicious, for the other two
were smoking. Mr. Townsend pulled eut a
match In one hand and bis revolver In the
other. The three lin n laughed at the sight
of the weapon and Mr. Townsend passed on.

A Purchase oS Repentance
If you buy a Piano trom'a sliding price dealer you will repent It when you
find that your neighbor bought the same Identical instrument from the same
dealer for Jess than you paid.
If you buy from a dealer who pays commissions to people who take or
send customers to hU store you will repent it when you learn that the com
mission was added to the price of the PJano and that It came out of your pocket.
And. besides, your friend who got the communion would not and could not
be of any service to you if the Piano proved unsatisfactory. Now, If you can't
trust the dealer without your friend with you, of what value is your commission-taking
friend In a case of this kind? .
The other Piano dealers recognize the commiaslon-takers as parasites and
grafters, but those dealers have not confidence enough in their Pianos and
prices to cut loose from these commission-seekers.
Ours is the only one-price, no-commission Piano store.
' A child can buy a Piano In the Hospe store as safely and as well as the
most expert shopper or the most accomplished musician. There is no need
of misrepresentation on the part of our salesmen. And you can' depend upon
the advlca our store offers.

In the district court came In for a severe
"roasting" at the hands of Judge Sears
Friday morning. The Incident occurred
while a Jury was being empanelled In the
case cf Ike Rablnowits against the Omaha
Sc. Council Bluffs Street Railway company.
One of the Jurors said he was employed as
a clerk by a local bank and would be
prejudiced In favor of the street railway
company because It did business with his
bank. He declared it would require more
evidence to Induce him to return a verdict
against the street railway company than It
would in a case In which that corporation
was not a defendant. Similar answers had
been given by two other Jurors In a case
against another corporation that had been
tried a few days previously.
