Is the Best Known
.'Xot because is it the best advertised, for experience
baa proven that extensive advertising pays only when the
article possesses superior merit. Advertising a piano can
never give it a lasting reputation unless it completely ful
fills the claim made.
With financial resources far beyond any other piano con

Weber Piano of Today
Receives the homage justly due from it from it from the
world's greatest artists, including Paderewski, Rosenthal,
Etc., and the patronage of discriminating purchasers, not
on its past laurels, but for the reason that it is absolutely
the best piano made.

When the financial flurry brought the
first falling off of business the railroad
managers Immediately set to work to got
as many foreign cars a possible off their
lines as they pay 60 cents a day for the
time a car of another road is on their
lines. The rules' of the association say that
when a car Is offered' to aroa,d at Ha ter

of ' tho large western roads Which . had
20,000 cars two month ago when business
was at Its height h, has now but 10,000

Saverlo Colombo, the Italian charged with
Killing Joseph Florenxa In a cornftold near
Bast Omaha last Sunday, had his prellml
nary hearing In county court Saturday
morning, and at the close was bound over
to the district court without ball
The testimony developed no new clues In
the case. The principal point connecting
uoiomuo with the crime was In the evi
dence of Sebastian Salerno, who testified
he sold Colombo some shotgun shells the
Friday before the crime and that the
empty shells found near the scene of the
crime were like the ones he sold. Some of
the Italian associates of jXe two men tes
tified that Colombo -waa present Friday
afternoon when Florensa received a regis
tered letter containing IJtt. It was shortly
after this Incident he bought the shells of
Salerno. Street car men testified to seeing
two Italians going to East Omaha early
Sunday morning and one of them carried
a shotgun. Shortly afterward one of the
men returned alone with the shotgun.

Sacred Xomlaatloa
tireaad Is Absurd.
' "It simply shows," said Mayor Jtm, "that
no other man ran rise up and usurp the
position of Mr. Bryan In the Politics of this
country and in the hearts of the biggest
part of tho people."
A story from Minneapolis had been
shown the mayor in which It waa atated
the Bryan .Then in Minnnesota have Issued
a manifesto declaring again for the Peer
less Leader. The manifesto closes with
these words:
Assuming no perogalives of leadership;
actuated by a desire to see the democracy
a party of progress, not of negation; be
lieving In positive principles, not vague
generaltles; and fully convinced that the
welfare of the airty and nation will be
beet served by nomination and .election
of the unsulllraJ'eV-ader In two campaigns,
we auk the democrats of Minnesota attain
to rally around ".he standard of William
Jennings Bryan.. ....
The story also states that the friends of
Governor John A. Johnson will not allow
the manifesto to go unchallenged.
' "I personally, believe Johnson will not
even try for the nomination,", said Mayor
"Jim" with conviction. "He can't afford to
do It. If he docs so he will have to come
out openly and fight Bryan. Now, a man
of his alxe can't do that. It would be like
a mouse against a Hon. Like a."
Pnaaea for si Fiktare,.
The mayor paused for want of soma
figure ' adequately to , express the tremen
dous mendacity of any man who Would
place himself lu the way of the Impending
landslide Brvanward.
"No, I think Bryan will walk away with
Minnesota In his vest pocket just as snug
aa he has all the other states. The plac
ing forward of favorite sons Is not going
to .phase him at all. It can't It's en
tirely Impossible.
"Now, I met a man from there a few
weeks ago on the way from French Lick.
He was the man who first brought Johnson
out for governor. We rode together on
the train all day and I had a chance to
sound him on his position. He said he
would never stand tot Johnson trying for
the presidency. He stated he had been -his
friend all his lift, but he would never stand
for him if he once placed himself In opposi
tion to Mr. Bryan. That waa one of the
governor's closest friends. That ia what
he thought and you can Imagine what tho
rank and file who have followed Mr.
Bryan so many years will think.
"No, Governor Johnson Is all good enough
for governor of Minnesota, but If he ever
tries to- take Mr. Bryan's place he will find
the boota a good deal "to big for him. But
the misfit of- the boots doesn't matter be
cause he hasn't got any oiiance at all to
wear 'em. Mr. Bryan is the only man
they fit and he's going to keep right on
wearing them until he stomps up the White
House, steps and goes in and-sits down at
his desk."
Offlreholdere Defy Thief.
One of the remarkable featurea of this
Bryan manifesto is that some of the ap
pointees of Governor Johnson, men now
holding office In the state and forming
part of his administration, are backing
the'Brytan movement as against Johnson's
aspirations. This is considered audacious
and brings out a, two-horned question:
Either Johnson has failed after two terms
as governor to secure control of his state
organisation sufficiently to ad It against
Bryan, or he doesn't intend to be a can
didate and the latter Is not . a popular

mitteeman from Minnesota, Is leading tlifl

Colonel Bryan was In Omaha for a litlU
while on Saturday, but could not be drawn
Into a discussion of this question. .
Anyone Havlnar State Bank Notes Lla-
ble to Proaeeatloo by the
Government. . y
The question of the counterfeit character
of the Merchants and Planters' State bank
notes of Georgia, which have been so
liberally circulated throughout the west
recently, has Just been decided by Judge
0. B. McPhersnn of Iowa, at Creston,
where he Imposed a sentence of three years'
Imprisonment upon B. G. Lane for pass
ing a number of the notes. Judge Mc
pherson held that the bank notes were In
"likeness and similitude" to United Statea
currency notea and were "liable to de
ceive." Following the conviction of Lane word
has been sent out to the secret service
officers of the government having charge,
of Investigating counterfeiting to arrest all
parties handling or dealing in these
Georgia notes or the State Bank of New
Brunswick notes, which are of similar ap
pearance, and hold them answerable to
the charge of being In possession ' of
counterfeit money. Two men are now In
custody at Falrbury charged with passing
number of these notes in that vicinity.

William A. Lehmer, who owna property

from proceeding with the building of the

him hi damage. Under the law he has
no rlglii to file a claim for damage with
the county board or to sue the county
though a property owner living juat across

can hold the city responsible. Judge
Redlck took tha caa under advisement.

In the January number of Scrlbner'
Magazine President Roosevelt relates
these details of hi recent bear hunt in
Mississippi and Louisiana:
Then we crouched down, 1 with my rlfll
at the ready. Nor did w have long to
wait. Peering through the thick-growing
stalks I suddenly made out the dim out
line of the bear coming straight toward
us; and noiselessly I cocked and half
raised my rifle, waiting for a clearer
chance. In a few seconds It came; the
bear turned almost broadside to me, and
walked forward very,' stlfTlcgged, almost
aa it on tiptoe, now and then looking
back at the nearest dogs. These were two
In numberRowdy, a very deep-voiced
hound, In the lead, and Queen, a-shrlll-tongued
brindled bitch, a little behind.
Once or twice the bear paused as she
looked back at them, evidently hoping
that they would come so near that by a
sudden rac she could catch one of them.
But they were to wary.
, All of this took but a few moments, and
as I aw the bear quite distinctly some
twenty , yards off. I fired for behind the
shoulder. Although I could see her out
line, yet the csne was so thick that my
eight waa on It and not on the bear it
self. But I knew my bullet would go
true; and, sure enough, at the crack of
the rifle tha bear stumbled and fell for
ward, the bullet having passed through
both lunga and out 'at the opposite side.
Immediately the dogs came running for
ward at full speed, and we raced forward
likewise lest th pack should receive dam
age. The bear had but a m.lnute or two
to live, yet even In that time more than
one valuable hound might lose Its life; so
when within half a dosen steps of th
black, angered beast, I fired again, break
ing the spine at the root of the neck; and
down went the bear atark dead, slain In
the canebrake In true hunter fashion. One
by one the hounds strsggled up and fell
on their dead quarry, the noise of the
worry filling the air. Then we dragged
the bear out to tit edge of the cane, and
my companion wound hi horn to summon
the other hunters.

Into their dena toward th end of January,
usually In hollow trees, often very high up

Informants said, as when they enter their
deps in January; but they lose thetr fat
very rapidly. On first coming out in the
spring they usually eat ash bud and th
tender young caoe called mutton can, and
at that aeaaon they generally refua to eat
th acorn even when they are plentiful.
According to my Informant it 1 at this
