At a point which Is now on the map as
the corner of Twelfth and Jackson streets
the Snowden home waa built. It waa of
logs, but the owner waa a brick moulder,
and It waa a brickyard that he proposed to
launch aa an Initial bualness enterprise,
bearding the hands who worked for him.
Three daya after the house waa completed
the first apude waa stuck Into the clay at
a point which la now Fourteenth and Leav

the firat brickyard In Nebraska. The clay
waa for the brick that should ha the foun
dation of the first territorial capitol, then
to be built on the west side of Ninth street
between Douglaa and Famam etreeta, and
facing Douglas. It was not until two years
later that the erection of the more preten

present site of the high school.

cense nt Heaort.
There may be no liquor sold at Krug
park thla summer. The Benson city coun
cil is considering the question of a re
newal of a license at the park and wrestled
with the problem for several hours Friday
night. No decision waa reached, although
all the evidence is In on both sides, and
the council voted to meet In special session
Monday evening and render a verdict.
The ease hinges In part as to whether
Rudolph Timmlor, applicant for the license,
Is acting for himself or for the Krug
Brewing company. The opposition charges
that Tlmmler Is only a flgure-hoad and
has been put up by tho Krugs, the West
ern Amusement company and W. W. Cole,
manager of the Western Amusement cor
poration. Timmlor himself took the stand and
stated that his agreement with the amuse
ment company was a bona fide leasing of
the concession, for which he had agreed
to pay t50 a diy. The $l)u which he put
up for the license, he declared, he had
borrowed on his note from the Castle
Realty company. That company Elnn-r
Thomas, appearing for the Civic league
and the Women's Christian Temperance
union of Benson, declared to bo myth.
Tlmmler and Rev. Mr. Campbell, pastor
of the Baptist church of Benson, contra
dicted one another as to a conversation
held between them. Campbell affirming and
Timmler denying that the latter had ad
mitted to the former that ho was simply a
dummy in the matter.

"I have but recently been before the com
mittee on tariff revision at Washington to
urge tlie retention cf the tariff of at leant

The mere mention of the fact that a quality store like this would conduct a
"Special Sale" wa9 sufficient to crowd our store all of Saturday. ,
The first experience of the new store with a REDUCTION SALE has been ex
tremely pleasant to ua and extremely profitable to the public judging by the compli
mentary remarks we have heard. Lots of people have been so often disappointed at
"Sales" that they doubted the genuineness of our statements until they came. They
found only the newest and best garments, by the world's best tailors at a bona fide re
duction of one-half. We've been busy, but we still have thousands to select from and
