mittee. As a result of the ndlng of the Cen
tral Labor union arbitration committee,
which recently decided that the stage
hands of the Burwood theater have no
grievance against Manager Johnson, a
heated discussion took place at the meet
ing of the central body Friday night, at
which the He was frequently paased and
strained relations narrowly averted. The
Stage hands, whose spokesman was J. L.
Bayard, declared that their wage scale
was sanctioned by the International union
and could not be a matter for arbitration,
and that they oould not work under any
circumstances unless their scale was sc.
When the central body backed up the
arbitration committee and accepted its
word that the stage hands hsd no griev
ance the latter announced their intention
of taking the matter up with the Ameri
can Federation of Labor.
It was announced that in the Labor day
parade the veterans of the Deustcher

Hor Standing in Society
A friend recently mftde this remark "A young woman Is ostrsclxed by
the eligible young nen of her acquaintance if her home Is without a Piano!
Perhaps this remark Is a little far-fetched, but there is a kernel of truth in
It at least. Undoubtedly In many rases the young man who Is paying suit
to your daughter, is attracted in more or less of a way by the musical at
mosphere which surrounds the home. If he is the right sort of a chap tind
one who meets with your approval in every way. in character and business
standing, he thinks further nhead than the present, snd some day expects to
own a home for himself, and in that home ho undoubtedly will place a piano,
knowing the restful Influence It has In smoothing away the lines of care alter
a hard day's toll. , Not that he expects your daughter to have a European
education, but he does naturally look for a limited training along musical
lines, and the refinement which It brings to each man or woman.
Benefits J Musical Education
Admitting this to be true, why not give due thought to the future or your
daughter, whether she marries or whether she soon leaves your home to maKe
a place for herself In the world. Surely you wish her to have every possible

life's promblems. The ability to charm, to entertain, and If necessary to
teach music. Is an sbllity that In case of need may be cashed Into llfes neces
sities So if your daughter should not marry, find at any time Is thrown upon
her own resources, the chance of her maintaining her position In society Is
enhanced by a musical education.
One Dollar Each Week
Is all that we ask you to pay In taking care of the balance due on your
piano after the first payment. This amount is little more than fourteen
cents a day. Surely you will not allow such an Insignificant sum to stand
between your daughter's ability, her success in life, snd the owning of a
' piano. We arc more than willing to assist you when we give such terms.

Will the democrats of Douglas county
take advsntage of the line appearing at
the head of the editorial columns of the
World-Herald and reading "An Independ

their conscience Is clear in voting against
the editor of that paper, Gilbert M. Hitch

congress? This was hinted at strongly by
members of the Dahlman democracy, the
leading faction of the party In this county,
at a meeting of the club Friday night.
While the officers of the club were in
executive session the action of the World-
Herald came up for discussion by the
mombers, and the refusal of the congressman-editor
to support Mayor Dahlman In
his gubernatorial campaign and the pa
per's persistence in putting Mr. Shallen
berger ahead in the race when the returns,
it was alleged, would not warrant it, were
"To h 11 with the Wor d-Herald," shouted
Myer Klein, chairman of the Dahlman
democracy house committee and at the
head of the Jewish Democratic club.
"Do you include the editor of the World
Herald In that expression?" he was asked.
No formal action of any character was
taken by the club, ay motion prevailing to
defer action until cornplete returns from
the primary are received. The executive
committee declined 16 divulge what It tran
sacted. The Dahlman democrats and the mayor,
who attended the meeting, are still in a
sanguine mood and refuse to give up hope.
