FOLLY TO ELECT DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATORS Gram 4 Jwrjr Acala Reported to B Bur with th Missouri Avenaa Pavlaar Matters Reccftttom si T. M. C. A. 'V Tha following circular letter was Issued from tha llepublican club headquarters yesterday. It crystaliuea the Ideas of the toeal leaders well and the club members and the committee of sixty ara beginning to act along tha lines outlined. The all Important lasuea to be considered In this campaign la the personality. Indi viduality and integrity of the candidate for which you are to vote, and tha ability he mlaht have to aid In the passage of legis lation In the event of his election. Isnues that are fruitless of results, even though they emanate from republicans, are Idle tales and only for the purpose of deception. It la a well understood fact that the gov ernor and legislature of this state will be republican, consisting of men of actions and not lames, for this county to awnd democrats to the legislature at Lincoln would mean that their ability to pass legislation of any character would not be considered as an Issue. If you were unwlxe enough to take aerl nnalv tha circular which has been Issued I end circulated from the pretended Bouth I " Omaha Democratic club, you would believe I that the only question of vital Importance ". to this community Is what they please to Iuall home rule undefined. There la a vast dtflerenee between a condition and a theory. Those of you who have lived here under several former ad i ministrations csn easily recall what the i actual moral conditions were under mis- l Special Ladies1 liotice J I ' A The drawing for the Old Aitecs Tur- i quoise Navy Bean which was discontinued y at Frandsen'a Jewelry Store at K9 south r lath street, on account cf the remodeling ' of the display window, will commence agjln Monday morning, Nov. &lh, and continue until ladles' have drawn. The loose gem Itaclf is worth, and never will be sold er than 19.00. There are tickets among the number which calls for a gem. Tho chances to draw la free to ladles' or married gentlemen, providing they havo sam mounted in solid gold by us or a reliable Jeweler which we may mention. This in no catch fienny affair but our ayatem cf lu troduclnc tho most hundsomo Jewel In the world which is today tha fad of Iiundon, l'arta and New York society. 1 1 HAND SAPOLIO FOU TOILET ANO BATH Delicate enough for the softest in, and yet efficacious in removing tny stain Keeps the s,kin in perfect condition.

ALL QROCEWS AND DRUQ01XT rule and lawless rule, when the affairs of Bouth Omaha were In the hands of un principled offlcera. The theory of home rule la rlg-ht; there la no member of the legislature on the re publican ticket opposing such a measure, and on the contrary many of them have openly declared for home rule under such restrictions as seem wise and best, par ticularly for the common people. The legislature of this state makes the laws, and any individual can Instat on the en forcement of the Blocumb law. the state menta of the democrats that they propose to be a law unto themselves to the con trary notwithstanding. If you are Interested in the commercial welfare of Bouth Omaha and desire legis lation of any character that will be effec tive, compare the present administration, which waa brought about by an empty issue, with the one preceding It. There Is one remaining registration day, Saturday, November 3. If you are a re publican, the success of the ticket may de pend on your vote. If you are a democrat, consider seriously the above facta and vote for the party that has been responsible for all the legislation ever enacted that has benefited the public. Don't fall to register on Saturday, No vember 1, or to vote on Tuesday, Novem ber . Orssd Jury Busy Agala It Is commonly reported that the grand jury has aaaln taken up the Missouri ave nue question.

'Knock at a Venture," by Eden Pbllpotts, la a collection of ten short stories, which opens with "Mound by tba Way," by far the longest and best, which ranks worthily with "The Secret Woman" In Its under standing and Interpretation of the emotions. the exaltations and weaknesses of human character In Its least complex. Its most primitive modern embodiment. It la a tale of love and lenlously, of surrender and tragedy, whose protagonist Is a simple young Dartmoor peasant. Love plays its part In two more of these tales, and In bota the outcome Is not what the routine of Action would lead one to eypect. Through all these tales there Is more optimism here than one usually finds In this writer's work -the Dartmoor peasant talks with all the shrewdness of his class, with all the racl ness and richness of his dialect. Published by the Maemlllnn company. Magaxlne readers will recall the "hit" that was made by The Reader a little over a year ago with the serial publication of "The House of a Thousand Candles."
