SOMETHING CHEAP AT LAST
Potatoes Likely to Fall Below the
Present Price, at Any
Indications are that potatoes will be
cheaper by the middle or last of next week,
although the new crop Is selling at $1.50 a
bushel just now and the old at 11. The
high water and hard ralr-s, responsible for
the shortages are both passing, and ship
ments from the south are more generous.
Commission men are looking for home
grown potatoes to supply the demand for
the next week. - "
Almost all the small fruld ln market now
is of the home crop, although a few scat
tering shipments of taspberrles and black
berries are coming In. The home-grow crop
Is not due until the early or middle part of

Bananas are high, owing to the demand,
and will continue sj until 'after July 4.
They are selling wholesale for 4'4 cents a
pound. California fruit is cheaper now
than It has ever been at this season ot
the year In the local market. Apricots,
peaches and plums that ordinarily sell at
11.25 and 11.60 a crate at this time are sell
ing now for II.
All kinds of pineapples at all kinds of
prices are in market Just now and are the
last of the season. There Is no uniformity
of quality in the shlpmenta and the par
ticular persons will do well to see what
she is buying.
The demand for California cantaloupes
Is unprecedented, and where 0 or 25 crates
a season has formerly been counted a
good disposition by the local market, three
carloads have already been disposed of
heije so (ar this year. These are selling
from 4 to 8 cents each, wholesale. Texas
watermelons are selling from 26 to 30 cents,

WITH BUGS OVER THE HILLS
Prof. Barker Begins Ilia Work with
Boya In Windy of atare
Prof. F. D. Barker of the University of
Nebraska has arrived In Omaha and will
begin Tuesday his nature study with the
boys of Omaha under the auspices of the
educational department of the Young Men's
Christian association, of which J. W. Mil
ler Is director.
"I think the Impression has gone out that
this is a summer of hard study, a school
from which the boya will not be freed from
hard mental work," said Prof. n Barker.
"That , is Incorrect. We propose to
give the boys much helpful Instruc
tion about biology, geology and botany, but
after all It will be a splendid meana of
physical exercise and recreation, for it
will keep us out of doors and bring us into
contact with Mother Nature. We shall take

chance to be at eating time. Then we will
devote some time to work In the Young
Men's Christian association gymnasium
and swimming pool."
Mr. Miller said about twenty boys up to
the age of 16 years would constitute the
class at the start. Owing to the mlnunder
standing on the part of parents the class
will not be aa large at the outset as wished
In addition to this out-of-dook work there
will be four Illustrated lectures at the
Young Men's Christian association of
nights for the parents Illustrations of ani

Bchool of the University of Nebraska and
Dr. Wolcott," chair of anatomy and nature
study, will take part In this work.
OUR JIMi STARTS FOR DENVER
Mayor W'lll Stop at Lincoln and
Eat with Colonel '
A medium-slsed, close-knit man, with
broad mouth and thin Hps, drawn into a
straight line like Bryan's, could have been
seen standing at the Burlington station
about 9 o'clock Friday morning.
Mayor "Jim" (for it was our hero) took
the morning train for Lincoln and will em
bark from that thriving town for Denver
A man stepped up to him as he waited
for the train and, saluting him, remarked
that he was "setting on the Job pretty
early, wasn't he?" . '
"No," tald the mayor. "We have a meet
ing there tomorrow to select the tempo-
rary chairman of the committee and I must
be there." .
Asked why he did not Journey direct to
Mecca Instead of tarryimr at Damascus
during the day, the mayor's face assum d
a still more benign expression, such an ex
pression as comes upon the countenance
of one who goes to see a loved friend.
"I'm going to lunch with the old man
In Lincoln upon his invitation," he said
Which, beng Interpreted, means that cur
"Jim" will break bread with William J.
Bryan. An observer with an eye even less
keen than that of. the Arab sheik mliht
see that Mayor, "Jim" will not be enter
tained merely for the sake of the suste
nance he may secure from the food, nor
for the pleasure of his genial company.

John L. Kennedy Sayi Figure, of
Equalizer Are Ruinous.

Aeaarea the Conaty Board that Hia
Firm Will Go to th Supreme
Court Before It Com pi lea
"If the policy of the board is legal and Is
carried out we might aa well shut up our
store and move out of town."
This statement was made . by John L.
Kennedy, representing Brandels at Sons, at
the close of a heated argument before the
County Board of Equalization Friday morn
ing. He waa protesting against an In
crease In the assessment of the property
proposed by the board.
"If the board can carry out this policy
and carries It far enough you will have
grass growing In the principal streets of
the city. You are picking out improved
property and planning a tax on enterprise.
That policy Is wrong. You may be able to
make up pay these Increased taxes, but
we will not do It until the supreme court
says we have to. I do not question the
Intentions of the board, but your policy is
Mr. Kennedy declared the Courtney store,
corner at Seventeenth and Douglas streets,
had been bought for $50,000 and It Is as
sessed at $S2,otX. He declared the prop
erty could be bought for less than this
"While we think the valuations made
by the county assessor are too high, we
will abide by them. But If you attempt to
force his valuations up, will go to the
supreme court before we will submit."
Over Million Dollars.
The assessment of the Brandels property
as returned by the assessor was fixed at
$260,000 for the land and 1516.0C0 for the
buildifig, a total of $805X00. The board pro
poses to raise it to $320.nno for the land
and $7i'0,0u0 for the building, a total of
$1,090,000. The Courtney corner was as
sessed at $10,000 for the land and $42,5ii0 for
the building by the assessor and ths
board's proposed figures are $30,000 for the
land and $42,500 for the building, a total of
Mr. Kennedy said he wanted a- time set
for a formal hearing, when testimony will
be introduced and taken down in short
hand. At his request the board set Tues
day at 9 o'clock as the time for the hear
ing. At this time several other property
owners will be heard.
The board took no action on any of the
protests against the proposed Increases In
uptown valuations. A doien . property
owners were heard and the cases taken
"Net rents are lower than they were
fifteen years ago," declared Cadet Taylor,
representing property st the corner of Six
teenth and Dodge streets. "The gross
amount of the rentals may be a little high,
but Increased taxes and oth,er fixed charges
make the net rentals lower than they Were
Shnkert Makea Protest.
G. F. Shurert was another property owner
who made a vigorous protest against the
proposed raise. His property, which Is
now being remodeled by Tolf Hansen for a
restaurant was assessed at $72,000 by the
assessor and raised to $95,000 by the board.
"How much rental do you get for your
property under your contract with. Han
sen?" asked Mr. Kennard. ,
"It Is my business and not yours If I
made a good deal," said Mr. Shukert,
The botird reduced the assessment on the
old Count Creighton home at Twentieth

he had bought. If for $18,000.
DR. BRADT GUEST OF HONOR
Chief Speaker at Banquet by Brother
hood of Lowe Avenue Pres
The Brotherhood of Lowe Avenue Pres
byterian church had a banquet in the
church basement Thursday night at which
the leading guest of honor was Rev.
Charles Edwin Bradt, D. D., of Chicago,
central district secretary of the Board of
Forflgn Missions of the Presbyterian
Dr. Bradt Is a native Nebraskan and for
some yeavs did pastoral work In this state,
but his most recent achievement in Ne
braska and the one by which he is best
remembered and most distinguished here
was his organization and direction of the
convention of men of the Presbyterian
church In what was known as the "For
ward Movement." which brought to the
Auditorium In February, hundreds of
the church's leading men. clergy and
laity and laid the foundation for the most
aggressive foreign missionary campaign In
the history of church. That convention
pledged the men of the Presbyterian
church, to raise $ti,000,COO for the spiritual
conquest of the orient and gave to Omaha
a large place In the affairs of this church.
Growing out of that convention one of the
most systematic campaigns ever waged lri
the cause of religion la now being carried on
by each and all Presbyterian churches ard
the Lowe Avenue church, working along
the lines drawn by Ita pastor. Rev. Na
thaniel McGiffin, D. D., Is attempting to
raise this year the sum of $lv for the
gospel In the orient. This banquet, while
one of the monthly functions of the
Brotherhood, had for Its central theme
the "Forward Movement."
After the banquet, which was the artistic
work of the church women, toasts were
given and music added to the evening's
pleasure. The singing was by the Lowe
Avenue church quartet. . n. vi unur
first tenor; Arthur J. Van Kuran, sec
ond tenor; Charles U Vance, baritone
Jo Barton, second base. Mr. Barton sang
one of his dialect solos and had to' sing
another before the audience would let him
Dr. H. M. McClanahan discharged the
functions of toastmaster In a war which
brought him Into distinct favor. Thomas
Landale was the first speaker, his subject
being "Good Cheer." W. R. Wason spoke
. ,, M ... , T .
on "The uroaa iwn. j. . nervey
spoke of the Influences on youth In urban
and suburban life and the advantages o
social organizations. Dr. Rradt's subject
waa "A Man'a Job." It waa not making
money, not even making a living, aince liv
ing la a gift of God; but It waa doing for
others, for the world, the big work of
"establishing the kingdom of God nere on
earth." The "Forward Movement," Chris
tiantsing the world, was the ttime. Dr,
Bradt made the remarkable statement that
a thouaand million persona, two-thirds of
the world'a population, had not yet heard
the gospel preached ior had it taught to
them, aystematlcally. Here lay the possl
billties of "A Man'a Job."
Dr. Jamte M. ration spoke on the sub-
Jert: "Our Fad Bjys."
Dr. McGiffin closed th program with an
interesting talk on "Church Policies." He
laid stress on the Importance of getting
the men of the church into active service
and he urged the advantage of systematic
organization and wide-awake and intelli
gent discrimination of the nfeds and the
demands of the 4,-hurch.
