Stranarer Leaves in a Harry.
The police Saturday were looking for
a atranger giving the name of George
Collier, who rnahed what Is thought to be
a worthless check for $19.28 at Ritchie's
hardware store on Broadway. The
atranger purchased a coffee pot coating
50 cents and tendered the check In pay
ment. Not having sufficient change, Mr.
Ritchie gave the stranger his personal
check for $15 and the balance in silver.
Tha stranger then went to the sore of
the John Beno company, where he bought
a pair of gloves, tendering Mr. Ritchie's
check in payment The check was re
ferred to Charles Beno, and when the lat
ter took the precaution to Investigate tha
stranger left the atore In a hurry. If
the oliei-k given by the atranger to Mr.
Ritchie proves to be worthless he will,
owing to tha caution displayed by 'Mr.
Beno, be out only a coffee pot and $3.78
in change Instead of $18.78, as the fellow
did not wait to get the $15 check be rk
from Mr. Beno.

Never Had lMctore Taken.
One legislator this winter will undoubtedly

a request from the office of the secretary
of state for a picture to place with those
of otuer members In .the Oflcial Register,
Representative Henry Tegeler of Dyersvll.e,
Dubuque county, replies that he Is a demo

his picture taken In his life. If he survives
this legislature, eludes newspaper men, es
capes soliciting photographers and quiet
sketch artists with bis record regarding a
photograph unblemished he will be entitled
to the credit of having remarkable forti
tude. Nearly every session has its unphoto-
graphed member for awhile. Last ses
sion it was no other than the lecent
democratic state chairman, Clint Price.
He absolutely refused to surrender to the
photographers and with a cold heart
turned away all newspaper men. Then
one day the sketch artist lolled In the
press gallery and made a few sketches
with pencil and pad. Next day a picture
purporting to be Price appeared in a dully
paper. The day following Price appeared
with a supply ot good photographs for al.
the newspaper boys who desired thorn. He

Mayor Has More Trouble.
That Mayor A. J. Mathls, during his
term as police Judge of Des Moines, made
an agreement with three well-known
bondsmen allowing them to pay to the
city $5 for all men charged with intoxica
tion when the prisoner was fined $10 is
a fact established beyond a doubt. This
Information comes Indirectly from Coun
cilman John MacVlcar, superintendent of
the department of public lmprovem-nt.
Thla latest sensation, sprung fco soon
after Mayor Mathls turned back into the
city treasury over $1,300 In fees without
a word of explanation, comes as a bomb
to the other members of the council and
city hall attaches, although some were
aware of the truth.

A RICH HARVEST
CAN ONLY BE REALIZED FROM
To Manufacturers 1
IF you wished to get tba
biggest harvest from a
given tract of land you
would not blow seed to the
winds thinly scattered over
- the country. You would
1e . t t 1
plant it regularly ana 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 yo
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 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 messenger 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 1 9,78 1 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

DEMOCRATS PLAYING POLITICS
Legislative Delegation Bows to Dahl
man as Well as Hitchcock.
TO KEEP L0BECK WHERE HE IS
Eliminates Him from Mayoralty
Race and Abolishes Solomon's
Ufflrc Volra for Elective
Fire and Police Hoard.
The Dauglas county legislators-elect have
bowed to Hitchcock and Dahlmnn at one
and the same time, agreeing to support the
congressman-editor's pet -heme for an
elective fire and pol ce board and deciding
on a bill to abolish the office of county
comptroller and retain that of city comp
troller. Of course, there's no politics In this comp
troller bill, none except this: E. G. Solo
mon, present county comptroller. Is a re
publican; C. O. Lobeck, present city comp
troller. Is a democrat with mayoralty
aaplrations. The ex.stence Of the county
office means the abolition of the el'y Job
at the expiration of Lobeck'a present term.
If Lobeck'a term expires this spring it
means he will get In Dahlman's way for
the nomination for mayor. Hence tha
simplest thing In the world tj do Is to
abolish Solomon's job and make a place
for Lobeck nnd thua clear the track for
Mayor Dahlman's renominatlon. 1
Borne members of the delegation urged a
provision In the new charter bill for the
appointment of the Board of Fire and Po
lice Commissioners by the mayor, but
Hitchcock urged the elective propisltion
and won out.
All this action took place yesterday aft
ernoon at a meeting of the delegation. Of
course the little formality of having these
matters enacted Into law down at Lincoln
will be necessary before the action becomes
Tanner Chief Rebel.
Chief among those who favored an ap
pointive board was John M. Tanner, state
senator from South Omaha, but bs said
after ths meeting: "A man would be fool
ish to stand out practically alone," and ha
finally came over with the majority.
Borne of tha legislators wanted the com
missioners sleeted nonpartisan, as are ths
water commlaslonsrs, but this was lost and
they will be elected on partisan tlokats,
providing ths city charter la amended as
the legislators havs planned.
Ths change affecting ths method of
choosing members of the boards Is ths
principal feature of ths new charter-to-be.
though other changes wilt bs made. Only
a few of these changes are thoas reoonv
mended by the charter revision commute
of Omaha, siys Tanner. This committee
was composed of the city attorney, mem
bers of the city council, representatives of
the Real Estate exchange, the Commercial
club, the federated Improvement clubs and
the Central Iibor union. The committee
worked on the charter for months and pre
sented to the legislative members from thla
county a charter In accordance with the
concurrent views of the accredited mem
bera of It.
Adopted Xone of Them.
"We went over the committee's recom
mendations carefully, together with
recommendutiona made by scores of pri
vate individuals, but I can not aay that
we have adopted many of them," sild
Mr. Tanner yesterday.
Paving and sewer funds will be In
creased so hb to allow the voting of more
bonda to do more public work ind the
legislators have also about decided to try
to enact a charter provision g'vini the
city the right to compel pavlntr v ilhln
4,600 feet of the city hall. Under ths
present charter paving-can not le or
dered unless a majority of the owners
of property abutting on ths street to bs
paved sign for the Improvement. . As con
siderable of the downtown property Is
owned by eastern capitalists, It Is hard
to get them to algn for repaying, which
is often necessary on ths busy business
streets which receive much wear. , It is
to compel this repaying that ths charter
chunge Is proposed.
Walter P. Thomas, one of ths members
of the lower house, said Saturday, after
the final conference of members lu ths
office of Senator Ransom, that tha eomlag
legislature will bs "safe and ssneT and
that no wide-open policy would bs
adopted. Mr. Thomas has contended for
a conservative polloy . from tbs1 first and
