NEW YEAR'S GIFTS STOLEN

Effort to Kea taa Thla
"Merry Christmas to me," . chuckled
thief s he rifled ft wagon load of belated
holiday gifts' at the barn of the Omaha
Van and Htorage company on North Nine
teenth street.- He disappeared with the loot
from more than two dosen package and
now the detective force Is turning the
town Inside out to recover the stolen gifts.
On the morning of December 30, when
the wagon house was opened, a dismaying
sight of ' thattered cheer wsi exposed to
view. Iat the night before a load of
gift packages from the express companies
had been -received for New Year delivery.
These parcel were broken, torn and scat
tered about." The floor of the barn waa
littered with notes and gaily bedecked
Christmas cards. ' The careful thief left no
card cf his own. however.
No estimate of the extent of the robbery
Is possible. In that many package have
dlsirppearod altogether, while only part re
mains of others. From the standpoint nf
the detective. It appears remarkable that
not a line can be found among the rlf ed
packages to show where or from whom
they cam. ., .
The loss of packages possibly will In
clude shipments through several express
companies, as. the Omaha Van and Storage
company .makes deliveries for all of the
companies, doing business In Omaha. At
the express .company, offices It hi asserted
that no claims have been presented yet
for missing packsges which could have
been lost In this robbery.
Try to Keep It Secret. .
Efforts hate been made to keep the rob
bery as much a secret as possible for In
the light Of Its seriousness there la a de
termined Intent to visit punishment on the
thief. Pome of the' stolen goods are pro
tected by a standing reward from express
companies, but none of theae companies
will now admit that they are much con
cerned about the matter.
"It will not be up to us to make good the
loss when the claims are proven," said an
officer of the " Adams Express company;
"The Omaha Van company receipts to us
for' the goods' and parcels received and the
relation Is the same as between express
"We don't know' Just how much It will
amount to," said John Reklns, proprietor
of the Omaha Van and Storage company.
"The stuff 'recovered, which was thrown
about In the barn, was, of course, of little
value. ' ' " " '
"It seorris probable that the thief was
locked In the' barn at night when the wagon
was driven In and put away. If the rob
bery ' had occurred before ' Christmas it
might have' been worse."
"I don't know of 'any loss that has been
sustained to our shipments," declared A. J.
Sampson, general agent for the Wells
Kargo Express company.
The extent of the robbery Indicates the
' work of a cautious thlaf and an Investiga
tion of the case is being followed up with
more than ordinary diligence.

C. F. Wlllooarhby Says They Are Or

I'ncle Sam's Cltlsens. .
About twenty-five of , the fifty district
superintendents of census who are to at
tend the meeting called in, Omaha were on
hand when the first session began. The
others were snowbound.
The states represented at the meeting
are Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri,
North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska
and Kansas. Assistant Director of the
Census W. F. Wllloughby of Washington,
LeQrand Powers, chief of the division of
agriculture, and W. C. Hunt, chief of the
division of population, both also of Wash
ington, D. C, arrived this morning and
will be present at the afternoon and morn
' Assistant Director nf Census Willoughby,
who Is .the second ranking officer of the
census department, says:
"The purpose of this meeting Is to discuss
the best methods for the work we are
about to undertake. Similar meetings have
been held in the east, and south and south
east, where problems of the same nature
"There are some 350 census district su
perintendents in the country and we aim
to hold the meetings at such central points
where the general conditions of the
territory are alike. As an instance in the
south it la ' the negro problems, in the
southeaat the cotton and tobacco interests,
in the east the great general interests, in
the cenetral weat it is agriculture and
stock raising, in the mountain states, min
ing, and the Pacific coast states many pe
"One of the vital questions to come before
the meeting is the selection of good enum
erators. All applications must be In by
January 25, and from these applications the
great army of enumerators Is to be se
lected. "There has been a misapprehension regarding-
the rigidity of the examination re.
quired of the applicants for enumerators
and doubtless many prospective applicants
have been deterred from completing their
applications because of this examination.
It Is not severer by any means; Just re
quires good common sense, fair penman
ship and intellectuality." .

the past every filing device every

more capacity than you would prob
ably u.ie, when you bought it. It

which doesn't begin to work all over from
the day you buy it, It isn't true oonimy.
In "Sectionets," however, there is no
tied up capital not a penny that isn't
doing its full share from the start to
operate your buslnexs at lower cost and
with greater convenience.
