Sanitary Bed Comforters
To buy a Comforter is like buying a cat in a sack, you
don't know wbat is inside the cover, you have the merchant's
word for it. And -we say. this, years ago manufacturers of
comforters thought any old cotton was good enough for
comfort filPing, some do yet and the person that had one of
these rag bags: certainly was disgusted with ready made
comforts. But comforters have improved year by year until
now we. can eellVou comforters so beautiful inside that there
is n6 need of making comforters at home.
Comforters from the smallest crib size at 60c each to the
large bed 6iz at $4.50 each.
1-iet us show you our beautiful new line.

Despite the earllness of his arrival here, a

Governor Hughes' presence west of Chi
cago caused widespread interest and every
where provoked the exclamation, "He looks
better than his pictures."
Btlll suffering from an affection In his
throat, the governor explained that Inas
much as he was scheduled to deliver fifteen
address today he would not be able to talk
aa loud as he desired.
"The issue of this campaign Is primarily
the question of an election of an
administration that will represent the
popular will," said Governor Hughes.
Now I tell you the American peo
ple realise now more than in any other
campaign that reforms are necessary, but
all of us, I believe, agree that they shall
be aohleved rather by the enforcement of
the law than by any revolutionary schemes.
The checking of abuses and the regulation
of the trusts are vital questions that must
be accomplished by men of experience.

Bryan, but I consider it beyond question

represents all that Is best in American
Ideals; he standa for purity In politics and.
what Is more, for purity In the enforce

he was a judge Mr. Taft dealt harshly with
the laboring man. I tell you what he did
do: He dealt honestly with the laborlna-
man, and there la nothing which work for
the interest of the laboring man more than
honesty and justice administered from the
judiciary. Mr. Taft Is tried, experienced

letter carriers' association of that state.
Mr. Go Ins comes to Omaha with the
avowed intention of securing tho 1900 con
vention of the national association for
Portland and has the Pacific coast states
pledged to Ms cause. President Lindsay
says that Portland Is the only city that
haa so far filed formal notice of wanting
the convention next year, but It is under

O.. will go after it.)
Delegates from Ohio, two of whom have
arrived as ani advance guard, will be dis

which they will wear as badges. Kansas
delegates are wearing large sunflowers in
their buttonholes, while President Lindsay

The executive committee had hoped that
Postmaster General Von Meyer would
honor tho convention by his presence, but
a telegram from him Monday morning ex
pressed his reluctance at refusing the In
vitation, the postmaster general notifying
the committee that it would be impossible
for him to come. The Postofflce depart'

WOMAN NOT AFRAID OF WEATHER
Miss Rath Kenyon Delivers Mail Rain
Neither the summer sun nor wintry winds
have tanned Mrs. Ruth Kenyon, a woman
delegate to the letter carriers' convention,
and well known all over the United States
for her persistence in delivering mall, rain
or shine, along her rural route.
"I have not missed a day since I went
on over six years ago," said Mrs. Kenyon,
whose run of thirty-three miles a day is
out Of Munroe, Neb. "Flvo years ago the
thermometer sank to 40 below, but I was
after a record and kept on. My hands were
frosen, but, I was able to work next day
just the same.
"In saying I have not missed a day I
don't count time at conventions, which
the last few years I have Invariably at
tended. Then one day last winter a bill
iard was blowing sixty miles an hour over
the prairie and my customers did not get
their mall that day. I don't think that
ought to count either, for I rode Into town
on horseback and the postmaster would not
gtve me the mall, saying that on account
of the wind It could not be handled.
'I have been tn one runaway during these
years and have come near being In many

Mr. Kenyon Is a comparatively young

big hat on which was mounted a handsome
pair of big black wings. Many delegates
who had met her at previous conventions
kept coming up to her to extend greetings
and It was plain that she will be a central
figure throughout the convention. Woman
like, Mrs. Kenyon went straight to a big

the tenement house at 71 H Mulberry atreet
early today. That a deliberate attempt waa
made to destroy the house and its occu

doubt. Three barrels stuffed with rubbish
soaked with oil were biasing fiercely in the
lower hall, cutting off the escape of the
fifty or more person who were sleeping on
the upper floors. Bom of these died In
their beds, overcome by smoke and then
caught by tha flames. Othera who had

Several of th Injured who were taken to

o many persons were killed and aerlously
Injured was in part due to th oareleasness
of the tenant of th house themselves and
their disregard of th rule that fir escapes
must be kept clear of obatructlona at all
times. When the frightened men and
women rushed from their rooms ahead of
the flames they found the wells of the fire

which could not be quickly removed. Ex
cited mothera and fathers with children In
their arms and the smoke pouring out of
the windows behind them and the cracking
of the flames In their ears became panic
stricken and tossed their children to friends
In the street. Fully a doaen children were

during the National Corn exposition, which
Is now but sixty days off.
It haa been decided to leave up all lights
for the big corn show. Including those on
the city hall and street aa well as other
building. The colored lights at street In
tersections will be taken down temporarily,
as they are colored with dyea and the color
would wash off In early storms, but they
will go up again and the tlty will show
even more lights than during Ak-Sar-Ben.
In colors of corn and festoons represent

the west famous, the electrical decorations
for rhe show will be extravagant. Plana
are being made for decorations at the Audi

building a blase of electric lights.
As the state and foreign countries jiend
word to the management of their Interest,
the management becomes even more deter
mined to put the city in readiness for the
thousands who will visit Omaha December

O. I. Christie, secretary, announces that
"at the meeting of the special agents and
the commission appointed for the National
Corn exposition to be held at Omaha in
December, a movement waa started to ob
tain funds to purchase a trophy to be
awarded annually for the best ten ears of
corn exhibited at the National Corn exposi
tion. Tha value of the trophy is to be 11,000.
"Through the winnings of Indiana corn
growers at the National Corn exposition
held at Chicago last October, and those
made at other national shows, Indiana has
placed Itself In the front rank of the corn
states. The offering of this trophy at this
time gives the state another opportunity to
maintain the lead In all movements for bet
ter corn. Already the best artists and
designers of the country have been put to
work on this corn trophy and It Is hoped
to get one which will eclipse all trophies
of the kind ever offered. It Is Intended that
this trophy will bring much advertising and
glory not only to the state, but to the corn
growers. The special agents of the counties
of the state have each agreed to contribute
tlO toward the trophy. This means that
the interest in this trophy will be state
wide and that It is well termed an Indiana

France Hope o Prevent War.
PARIS, Oct. 6. France ha decided to
enact the role of mediator with the object
of preventing war between Turkey and

with the diplomatic representatives of the
powers with the idea of reaching an un
derstanding, the purpose of which should
be the maintenance of peace, when the offl
coal news of Prince Ferdinand's proclama
tion at Tirnovo arrived.
The foreign minister conferred this morn
ing with M. Iswolsky, the Russian minister
of foreign affairs, and Naoum Yacha, the
Turkish ambassador. This afternoon hn
will meet the Austro-Hungarlan, British
and American ambassadors, as well as the
Bulgarian diplomatic agent, M. Standoff.
The situation ta considered most grave.
The proclamation of the Independence of
Bulgaria actually has been made, and it
probably would be useless te attempt to
Induce Prince Ferdinand to withdraw It.

It Is known that the Bulgarian cavalry
already Is mobilizing om the frontier and
Prince Ferdinand Is determined to stick to
his guns. On the other hand. It probably
would be equally difficult to persuade Tur-
key tj accept Bulgaria's act, while the
sympathies of the powero aro In favor of
