Suits For Men and Young Men
The style, quality and tailoring of our new Fall Suits are so plainly In evidence that even a casual
observer would not fall to notice these characteristics of "Nebraska" garments.
Being made right In New York, the leading style center of the country, there can be no question ns
to their correctness.
Neither can there be any fault found with fabric, pattern nor tailoring, since our resident New
York buyerwho, by the way, Is in New York 313 days each year instead of once each season has made
a critical examination of each material before the suit was made.
Thus we can convince you that any garment you may select will give you long and satisfactory
wear, the very newest style and fabric and yet the cost will almost certainly be one-fourth less than at
We provide the greatest possible range for your selection, too, and do not in any way restrict

Samuel Childs. a man of 87 years, at
tempted to commit suicide Thursday after
noon by cutting his throat with a razor.
He made a gash several Inches long across
his throat and the wound was ugly look
ing, but not deep enough to sever the Im
portant blood vessels. The old man had
been living with his two daughters at
Seventeenth street and Missouri avenue.
No one was at home but himself at the
time of the attempt, which was made In the
middle of the afternoon. When his daugh
ters returned they found Mm partly un
conscious from loss of blood and the shock.
He was sent to the South Omaha hospi
tal In the ambulance and waa attended
there by Dr. William Berry.
No reason Is advanced for his attempt
other than his great age and the possi
ble thought his life was a burden to his
children. He was provided for by his
daughters. He also has a son.
Dr. Berry was of the opinion that the
wound would not prove serious.
KasTles Are Elated.
The South Omaha Eagles were highly
elated at the capture of four prlcea of
fered for the features of the big parade
Thursday afternoon. They had one first
and three second prizes. In order to fit

bration was held at the headquarters. An
Informal dance and refreshments comprised
most of the features. Every one seemed
to think South Omaha had done Its share
toward making the convention a success.
TJie local aerie has been working for weeks
to get out a fine crowd of marching men
and the floats had been under construc
tion for weeks ' longer.
The first prize was for the most eccen

The local Young Women's Christian as
sociation will open Its work next month to
meet an unprecedented demand. That this
demand has been aroused by the completion
of the new building and Its splendid equip
ment to handle the class work, there can
be no doubt. Because of the Ak-Sar-Ben
festivities, the opening has been postponed
from the week of October 4 to that of
October 11. The formal fall opening recep
tion will be held Monday evening, October
11. This and the New Year's reception are
the two pretentious social affairs of the
year In the association. The entire secre
tarial staff, now numbering twelve, has
commenced work and everything will be In
readiness when the classes open. The
gymnasium under the direction of Miss
Florence D. Alden promises to have the
largest attendance In the history of the
association. It Is xpectea that about 600
women will be wintered when the classes
open. This demand will necessitate early
registration by all wishing to take the
gymnasium work. The school of domestic
science under direction of Miss Mary B.
McGowan and the school of domestic arts
under direction of Miss Mary Burnside
have also attracted a large registration.
Opportunities along other lines of study are
also much Improved this year and any

is also meeting better success. The ab

for the pupils who were clamoring for ad

twenty-five years ago. Miss Wright, who
has been a cripple from her cradle, was at
that time a teacher In the public schools of
New Orleans. One night a young man, an
acrobat In a stranded circus, came to her
and begged her to teach him how to road
and write. He was sure of a good Job

ments. Though he hadn't any money,'
Miss Wright began to teach the young
acrobat at night. From this beginning

2,000 pupils In attendance each night. Miss
Wright teaches a girls' school during the
