That Letter Proposition
When you have a large number of people
to reach with practically the same infor
mation, no other medium will answer the
purpose as well and effectively Ha a type
written "form" letter.
The question arises, then. "Will It pay
to have, say, 60u or 1,000 letters typewi it
ten?" Yea. Decidedly yes.
But perhaps your mailing list Is &,XM or
even more. Ht ill. have them typewritten.
Not ACTl'ALLY written on a typewriter,
but typewritten. If you were to have KO.onn
letters written on typewriters it wmild re
quire all of the stenographers In Omaha,
using all of the available typewriters, two
days. And you could not afford that ex
pense. Right there is where we come In.
Bv our method we can produce ACTUAL
TYPEWRITTEN LETTERS at a cost of
IMITATION. Wo can give you a clean
and perfect letter, printed with steel-faced
type through an Inked ribbon, exactly the
same proems, from a mechanical point, as
jour letter goes throtinji on the typewriter.
And o do It quickly and cheaply.
Why bother with a poor Imitation letter
when one that Is to all Intents and pur
poses as good aa an original can be had
for 'less cost?
The letters we turn out look like type
written letters, feel like typewritten letters
and as a matter of fact ARE TYPEWRIT
TEN LETTERS. The most skeptical wl.l

Telling- of Baron's Record
Did Trinee Helle de Sagan find time In
the midst of his courtship of lime. Anna
Gould to write a letter denying the claim
of Henry Liouls de Oiniberg of Omaha
lhat he is really a French baron and a
second cousin of Prince de 8agan?
Superintendent Andrew Ferrer, superin
tendent of the County hospital, has re
ceived an anonymous letter which seems
to Indicate that he did, and some of those
who have seen the missive believe It was
mitten bv no other than the prlnoe him
self. U was mailed in New York April 10,
the day before Prince de Sagan sailed
from New York for Paris. It Is written
on correspondence paper of the very finest
quality and Is worded In English, which
Is good theoretically, but which abounds
In stilted phrases of a decidedly French
flavor. If Prince de Sagan did not write
the letter there can be no doubt It was
penned by fin educated and cultured
Another evidence of the Identity of the
writer Is the fact that he evidently knew
the Omaha "baron" and Is conversant
with, his life from the time of his birth,
through the Boer war and down to the
present. He Is also acquainted with the
De Olnxbi-rg family In Paris. The letter
declares the Omaha De Glnxberg Is a
"fakir" and Is really a Polish Jew born In
Tails Baron a Faker.
"The real De Ginsberg family," the let
ter continues, "lives In Paris and Is not
acquainted with this fakir."
Whoever the writer is, he evidently has
run across the Omaha "haron" before, and
not only knows him, but has some very de
cided feeling against him, aa the tone of
the letter and some of the Information It
contains Indicates. He warns the superin
tendent of the County hospital against him
and It Is apparent the writer Is afraid the
"baron" w ill make use of the claim of rela
tionship to the prince and the de Gins
bergs. He tells what he says was the Omaha
"baron's" record in the Transvaal and ad
vises the superintendent to write to P.
Krauser, formerly public prosecutor at
Johannesburg, and now a barrister there
for a confirmation of what he says. Owing
to the peculiar contents of the letter, Mr.
Ferrer does not care to make it public.
The letter la signed "Unknown" and it
Is addressed to the "Superintendent of the
County Hospital, Omaha, V. 8. A."
The story of Baron de Ginsberg .was tele
graphed from Omaha to the New York
papers and the fact the. letter was mitilcd
Just before prince de Sagan sailed from
New York, lends color to the belief that ho
himself wrote It. Mr. Ferrer will probable
Investigate to find out the authorship.

Kergost was arrested on the Information
of Miss Bertha Smead ot Sheldon, la. She
charged the Greek with threatening her in
her room about midnight Tuesday. She
is a girl of 18 and has bten In South Omaha
for about a year. Sho lives at present at
the Kagle rooming house at Twenty-sixth
and N streets. She is taking care of an
invalid woman who often requires assist
ance during the night.
Tuesday Miss Smead had been up until
about midnight and went out for a light
lunch. On returning to the rooming house
she was followed up the stairs by some
Greeks. She did not know they were in
the building, but spent several minutes
talking with the woman In charge. This
woman retired to another room when the
Greeks presented themselves. Detective
Klsfelder was within reach and he arrested
Kergost and later a supposed companion,
Lewis Alavayos. The officers are still look
ing for Chris Paronla," another Greek, in
connection with the same offense.
Miss Smead appeared in police ceuri.
Together with the fine the Judge gave the

GUILD ON THE LINCOLN CASE
Thinks Decision Splkea the Bill Capi
tal City triced on
What Is construed as a victory for the
Lincoln Commercial club In its case against
the Itock Island to secure Omaha rates
from the south is regarded by Omaha Com
mercial club members as "spiking" the
bill which Lincoln, assisted by Senator Nor
rls Brown, Is urging before congress to
eliminate the elastic clause in the interstate
commerce law regarding long and ahott
"Tho decision of the Interstate Commerre
commission. If It is correctly quoted In the
aispatches from Washington, makes one
thing clear to me,' said Commissioner J.
M. Guild of the Omaha Commercial club.
"It certainly shows that tho clause which
reads 'under substantially the same cir
cumstances and conditions' and makes
elasticity of the section possible, is consid
ered necessary by the !r.r?? Commerce
commission. I have the greatest confi
dence In the commission. If It finds that
conditions have changed since the Rock
Island and Xlsioiiri Pacific made the pres
ent rates and that Lincoln is entitled to
Omaha rates on certain commodities there
Is no question In my mind but the com
mission la right and has found the reasons
to Justify the ruling.
"But the decision, if correctly stated,
shows there are rases in which a rate may
be lower for a long haul than for a short
haul, even when the given point in the
short haul is intermediate with the long
haul point, as in the case of Lincoln and
"The commission has held, as I under
stand it, that coal from the south may be
brought to Omaha for IS cents per ton less
than to Lincoln and that the rate is Just
and reasonable. Now, with a rigid long
unj short haul clause, which has been
urged by Lincoln, the entire rate fabric
of the I'nlted States would be disturbed.
The commission has shown that there is a
chance for getting a medicine for a spe
cific trouble, a dVe of which Lincoln has
Just received, but it has also shown that
a cure-all or 'blanket medicine' which
would make the long and short haul clause
operate in every section, regardless of geo
graphical or other natural conditions, would
be a bad thing.
"It Is to be hoped that we will hear no
more demands for upsetting the rates of
the country by asking congress to adopt
an amendment making the long and short
haul clause ot the Intc-rstite commerce law
