It's funny how circumstance change

He should have been a farmer. He began
farm life back east when he was a lad. It
was the ambition of his youth that he
might some day own that farm. And he
did. As a boy doing chore on It he
Imagined that it would be mighty nice
to ride around over It a (he landlord, and
to be relieved of Its manual labor and to
reap rich harvests and pocket the money.
When he drifted into the safe business In
later years, he didn't lose sight of that
farm. He told the boys to let him know
what became of It. He wanted it If he
ever got the money. When ha had earned
and saved somewhere In the neighborhood
of $30,000 he got a message that the land
lord had died and that the property was
to be sold. "Bid It In for me," he wrote
them. Twelve thousand dollars was the
highest bid and it was Derlght's. So he got
It. He began to Improve it right away, and
after two years, maybe, when it was In
tha best possible shape, both he and his
wife found that they were so attached to
Omaha that no sort of reasonin could in
duce them to leave. After awhile the farm
was sold to make the safe business lu

Story or the
History Compiled by James B. Haynes
of the First Undertaking is lust
Off the Press.
A publication that will be of much In
terest Is the "History of the Trans-Mississippi
and Intet national Exposition of
1MW," which la Jvst otr the press. The stoiy
of this great undertaking, which meant so
much to Omaha, has beert compiled by
James B. Haynes, and Is published under
the direction of the committee of history
authorised by the board of directors at Its
meeting In June, 1A0J. The committee on
history consists of General Charles F. San
derson, chairman; I:aac W. Carpenter,
Charles W. Lyman. Carroll S. Montgomery
and George F. Bidwell. Mr. Bldwell was
placed on the committee to fill a vacancy
caused by the death of Edward Rosewater.
The actual determination to publish a his
tory of the exposition was not reached
until the fall of 1907.
The story of the exposition from the
time of Its genesis In the meeting of the
Trans-Mississippi congress in Omaha until
its directors had finally wound up Its af
fairs and had turned over to the stock
holders a dividend amounting to their sub
scription Is told In a concise and Interest
ing way. The book is prolusely illustrated
with portraits of the men and women who
were prominent in its affairs, with views
of the buildings and grounds, with day
scenes and night scenes and groups that
tell within themselves the Incidents and
episodes that attended the progress of the
most successful exposition that was ever
held. The work Is modestly done and with
out effort to exceed simplicity In its narra
tion, and because of this fact it will be
even more highly valued by those who
possess it than if It had been devoted to
the flamboyant exploitation of the lighter
side of the great exposition. It is not pub
lished with a view to profit, but merely ta
provide for those who care to have It. a
simple and succinct record of what still
remains the most Important epoch In
Omaha's business and social history.
Harry J. Hackett, whose address Is in
care of the United States National bank,
Is distributing agent for the book.
