About the Sale of Parlor Suites
It's been a wonderful week'up here in the furniture. Our big pur
chase of sample parlor suites in Chicago struck a popular chord this
week. - .
Think of buying parlor suits for less than we ordinarily are obliged to pay. Here's
one for instance, that is easily big value at $35.00, either with Bilk plush or genuine
leather cushions for $24.00. Over there is another 3-plece suite in mahogany finish
with loose cushion at $11.25, clearly worth a third to a half more. There are others
selling at $38.00, $52.50. $70.00 to $130.00 that show Bavlngs simply immense.
Our word for It you or we never bought parlor suits cheaper before. Wouldn't a $10
to $25 saving appeal to you at this time?

In good standing of the Ancient Order of
United Workmen, Modern Woodmen of
America, Tribe of Ben llur. The Fraternal
Aid, Degree of Honor. Improved Order of
Red Men and Independent Order of Odd
Fellows, this fact should satisfy the most
critical that I am friendly to these organ
izations and am a firm believer In the
roar Mao's laaoraaee.
"I do believe in fraternal organisations
and fraternal beneficiary organisations and
believe in them to such a degree that I do
not deaire to see them perish from the
earth. This class of Insurance la commonly
clashed "poor man's Insurance," and quite
properly so, for It offers to families protec
tion that could not otherwise be secured;
and In the early days these societies were
organised for the sole benefit of their
members and not In the Interests of a
coterie of officers. True, they were or
ganised In a crude fashion but. like the
old wooden plow, they served their purpose
and while the work was crude the organ
isations. In every sense of the word, were
"These organisations have prospered and
developed until today nearly. If not quite,
ore-half of the families of our country are
under their protection and are of so much
public Interest In their operation that It Is
perfectly proper that they should bave the
search light of truth turned on the manage
ment and. If weak places are found. It Is
for duty of the Individual or officer making
the discovery to at once attempt to have
the defects corrected.
Rate Uoestlom Important.
"A man Is a moral coward who, after re
ceiving his livelihood and sometime a
large competency by his position, and who,
by virtue of his position learns beyond
question of a doubt that there are serious
defects In a system and falls to give his
employer the benefit of his knowledge; we
know that truths are sometimes not popu
lar, but we think honesty pays.
"The rate question, to fraternal bene
ficiary societies, Is of the utmost Im
portance. Executive bodies make rate,
but death Is the ultimatum and fixes the
cost. When men die, honest organisations
must pay or quit business, and If the rates,
as written, are not sufficient other and
higher rates must be made. And this cru
cial time will come to many of our frater
nal societies, but, knowing; by Intimate as
sociation, the class of men that compose
these bodies, we feel confident that they
will have the brain and nerve to meet th3
emergency and correct the def-cta.
"We believe that these societies should be
permitted to work out their owq plan and
that tha law, so long as It has permitted
these companies freedom for years In tha
exercise of their government and rate mak
ing, should not force them by legislative
acta to change to any certain schedule of
rates, for cne positive rate would not more
fit all these societies than one slued hat
would fit all men, unless the rate was so
abnormally high that it would leave mar
gins in the more favorable companies.
"In scrutinising the reports that come
Into this office from the various com
panies, we find a marked difference In the
percentage of cost of producing business,
or. In other words. In ge-neral fund ex
penditures; we are dissecting these mat
ters in the Interest of the Insured. We
find also in some of the examinations made
that extravagant methods in management
are quite noticeable, and on referring to
the statutes of Nebraska, we find that
these organisations are not to be run for
profit, and we believe tha law good and
shall enforce the same. We want you to
know that If, In the seal of this depart
ment to correct extravagance or graft, we
should place In the lime light your so
ciety, that to purge an organisation f
dishonest officers or management, nuku
It doubly stronger, and that you owe th
detriment your good wishes rathrr than
censure, for you csn rest assured that no
accusations will be made unless the same
can be substantiated by record.

"Since the article appeared in the press
Stating that we were Insisting on certain
organisations adjusting themselves to a
representative form of government, we have
had many inquiries from other organisa
tions relative to the subject, which Im
pressed on our mind the truth of the
scripture, which says: "The wicked flee
when no man pursueth."
"We want you to know that we think; In
the main, aelf-sacrlficlng men with big
hoarts and love for mankind, are back of
these organizations, and these men and
their organizations will receive from this
department all the aid that can be ex
tended; our sword is solely for the grafter.'

Dismal Cries of Ghostly Owl No

The mystery of the dismal cries heard
ut night by realdents along the Fos
river, north of Geneva, ill., has been
cleared up, and the giod farmer folk now
retire in the evening without fear of
having their sleep disturbed by "ghosts."
The unearthly walling began on the
night of March 1, and from toe fact that
the soundt emanated from a point near
the cemetery the residents along the river
valley were strengthened In their belief
that the "ghosts were walking." Two
boys while rambling through the woods
near the graveyard a few days ago, saw
a large white object hanging on a fence.
Going up to It they found It was a bird

The owl evidently had become entangled
In the barbed wire while chasing a rabbit
or a field rodent and remained hanging
there until It starved to death. It being a
nocturnal bird, the wounded and trapped
owl uttered cries of pain and hunger at
night. From the cries many persons com

the cemetery were led to believe that the
"spirits of the departed" were uttering
warnings of an Impending calamity.
Each evening after sunset the meanings
began and generally continued at short In

BATTLE BETWEEN COWBOYS
IN GRAZING LAND DISPUTE
Poaae of Farmers Fight Attempt to
Drive Texas Cattle Into
BARTLF-SVlLLE. Okl., April 17.-A posse
of farmers of Osage county, living Jmt
north of the quarantine line, made an
attempt to drive a large drove of Texas
cattle, owned by William Little of Ramona,
bark across the line today, and when the
cowboys res lied With drawn revolvers, a
fience fli-ht ensued. A number of shots were
fired and a cowboy named Pugh Is sfd
to have been dangerously Injured. The right
waged for- aome time, but the farmers
finally desisted and permitted the cattle
to remain on the range.
The Oklahomans fear the moving of
herds Into this state from Texas will spread
