A Des Moines paper wants to know If
Ducky got Drill to spite or placate Pueblo.
Who can answer that?
The-president of the American associa
tion has had his salary raised to 87Juu,
placing him on a plane with the congress
men and senators of the United States.
George Tebesu chairman of the board of
directors and Mike Cantillon vice president
that la the lot of the American associa
tion. Will Floumoy be with Omaha next year?
That question has been asked many times
of lata. Here's a guess that he will not.
but your Pa will have to answer It finally.
The site Comlskey bought the other day
for his new park waa the location of the
old Brotherhood grounds, where Com my
played bis first league game as a member
of a Chicago team. i
Now they are talking of a "gentlemen's
agreement" to boycott Johnson and keep
him on the waiting list. That may be all
right In one way, but It won't prevent
Johnson from retaining the championship.
Bill Ann!, who played aTiort for Wichita
last season, is hitched onto Des Moines
and the Register and Leader seems to think
Brother Hlggins has been atung. Annls is
touted aa a terrfbie terror, but by pulling
his 1908 record on him his ferocity is modi
fled a bit. He batted .211 list season.
Kansas City appears to be the foot ball
of base ball. One week you hear that
Tbee u haa leased the team, next that Jim
Jones has bought It and now comes the
report that old Jack O'Connor, the veteran
catcher, has secured possession and will
run the team. Kansas City is one of the
few towns where a ball game must give
way when a circus comes to town.
Some sporting writers are beginning to
announce that "Gotch would stand no
chance whatever with Mahout. " Remem
ber the Hackensrhmldt match Is good ad
vice to these sapient nrophets Just now.
A Denver wise man knew so well how
things were comlnar out at Chicago last
April that he had Gotch pictured as a big
f!h being fed to a hungry lion. And an-
-other distinguished writer closer to Omaha
than Denver, after he reached Chicago,
wired back ta his paper: "I would like to
see Gotch win. but it's no use. He has
It la now practically certain that Oeorre
Graham will cover second base for the
Rourkee next season. His knee is well mr
far as can be determined and the chances
are George wUI be restored to his wonder
ful speed by spring. If so. It will be a
great factor .in favor of Omaha That is
no disparagement to Kinr's work of last
season. It waa good very good bnt with
King and Graham both in the game King
In the outfield and Graham at second the
team will be all the more strengthened.
King would do at short were It not for
his throw tietnr a little too short. Hts

thoroughfares, are now set against even
narrowing a street.
Councilman Zimman Introduced an ordi
nance providing for narrowlnr Jones street.
between Eighth and Ninth streets, from
100 feet to eighty feet. In support of the
measure he stated on the floor that if the
street was narrowed and mom rnnm ski.

would erect a fireproof warehouse on the
site to cost noo.000, the warehouse to be
ikjw leet, and to be used for the stor
age of fruit. The councilman asserted
there Is but little traffic on the street and
that everything reasonable ought to be

A RICH HARVEST
CAN ONLY BE REALIZED FROM
IF you wished to get the
biggest harvest from a
given tract of land you
would not blow seed to the
winds thinly scattered over
the country. You would
plant it regularly and sys
tematically in a section" no
larger than you could have
properly watched and cul
tivated. You would then
get the richest crop possi
ble, and if you were wise
you would not overwork
your land and thus shorten
its productive life, but you
would produce this year what would help the income from your land
next year, and the year after, and so on.
It is just so in advertising. The use of so-called "national me
diums," of general circulation, is scattering your seed too thinly over too
great a territory. You may get valuable general publicity in this way
but you cannot expect it to do any thorough cultivating. This is no
disparagement of general mediums, for space in them is well worth
what it costs, but you must not expect them to yield anything like
maximum results for a given territory.
You can only obtain maximum results and profit from any given
locality by the means of Daily Newspaper Publicity. The newspaper
will cultivate the local field as no other medium can possibly do it It
goes to the home. It takes the news of the day to the home fireside.
It is the messener between the outer world and the reader you seek
to reach. It sells things.
By selecting any section of country which best appeals to you for the
purpose, you can in a short time and at practically no cost, demonstrate,
the value of this great cultivating agency the daily newspaper to
your entire satisfaction. If you have been a user of space in general
mediums, then you are all the more
able to get the best value from local
cultivation. Take almost any one of
the general mediums for an example.
It may have 200,000 or even 500,000
circulation, but you will not find a
great number in any one city or town.
You can only get the maximum pub
licity by the use of the local daily
newspaper. Take for example a cer
tain city in Michigan of 100,000 pop
ulation. A canvass of 21,132 homes
showed , that 19,781 of them took
some daily newspaper. Can there be
any other way to thoroughly cultivate
the home field which can approach
the messenger of the day the
newspaper? It stands supreme in n?vV 'W . " "
power to cultivate trade locally and if you do not recognize the fact
you are not awake to your own best interests.

THE EE C01LPANIES IN COKCEET
Mavaua City aad Fort Dodge Railroad
aad Grata Ceaceras Claim Pre-
Will lajare Property.
Three suits against the city for dam-!
ages amounting to lx),0u0 arising from the
proposed building of the Bancroft street
viaduct were filed Wednesday in district
court by the Mason City & Fort Dodge
Railroad company, the Omaha Grain Ter
minals and the Independent Elevator com
pany. The railroad companies ask for
damages In the sum of $3v.uiw each and the
elevator company wants . 2o.0U damages.
The city has not ss yet filed Its answer.
The petitions of the three companies are
similar, all o( them putting forth the alle- !
gation '.ha; tlelr property would be dam
aged In the sums set forth should the pro
posed viaauct be constructed. In the peti
tions it is set forth that the land adjacent
to the propoaed viaduct Is valuable for
elevator and wholesale warehouse sites and
that the building of the viaduct would cut
off access to this land and thereby make
It of less value.
Attention Is called to the recent erection
of the wool warehouse on that territory
as being sn Indication that other enter
prises would naturally choose thla location
for building warehouses and elevators.
When the city council decided to build
a tlauuct acroas Bancroft street at Thir
tieth a board of appraisers was appointed
to aaaeas ditmages to owners of abutting
fro pert y This was done, but the petition
ers in these suits claim that the ap
praisers refused to allow them any dam
ages whatsoever, notwithstanding the fact
that representatives of ths varioua com
raniee appeared before the board and
showed that body that they would be dam
aged in large sums in the event the viaduct
screamed when the saw him enter. The
man slapped ber In tha face and told her
he w. uld kill her if she made any noise.
Borne one in another room heard the
noise and also screamed, whereupon the
man calmly descended the ladder, walked
up the street to an alley and disappeared.
Officer Morgan went to the house on a
motorcycle but by the time he arrived
the man had gone. The occupants of the
house were t'JO much frightened to give a
description of the intruder but neighbors
who saw him supplied the police wit.i a
ia rly food description.
