Notice that the new couhty building Is
unprotected against cold weather and Is
unfit to receive wood finish, either for
storage or for placing on the walls, was
served upon Caldwell A Drake, general
contractors on the building, by John
Latenser, county architect, Wednesday.
Mr. Latenser notified the general con-
ractor that none of the wood finish
placed In the building In present condi
tions will be accepted.
The situation appears to be t'.ie result
of the failure of Ins county commis
sioners to adopt strong, business methods
In forcing the general contractors to pro
ceed properly with the building construc
tion. From time to time for several
months the democratic board has made
sporadic shows of disposition to stop
dilly-dallying with the general contrac
tors and to force them to proceed to the
completion of their contract, as the con
tractors on the new Union Taclflo build
ing or any construction work for a
private'1 corporation would proceed. The

Itulldlna- to Be Heated.
Upon receipt of the copy of the letter
Jeff W, Bedford, chairman of the Board
of County Commissioners, ordered the
general contractors to suspend work until
the building properly Is heated.
"The heating arrangements will be
completed In two or three days," said
Mr. Bedford. "Caldwell & Drake will
have to arrange- with J. J. Hanlghen, the
heating contractor, about heating the
building, as I dent think the county has
to do it It they can't thrash It out and
agree the county will have to do some
thing. I don't know but It would be bet
ter for the county to go ahead and heat
the building anyhow rather than let the
trouble cause delay. I don't think under
the contract the ' county is supposed to
heat the building while It Is In process of
construction, but maybe It would be bet
ter If we should do It."

Dr. H. W. Conncll, city health commis
sioner, reports an Increase of three In

the births of the same month In 1910. In
October 204 children were born, 107 males,
s5 females and 1 blacks. In 1910 96 males

total of 201. .

CADET OFFICERS TO
HAVE BIG THEATER PARTY
The Cadet Officers club of the' Omaha
High school met in the assembly room at
the school Wednesday noon and decided
to hold a theater party next month. The
cadet officers will attend the party, in
full dress uniform , accompanied by
friends, and as there is a total of forty
four commissioned officers in the regl
znent at present a good-sized party Is
expected. -. ,
The officers held a lengthy discussion
on the question of holding the party In
boxes or in the orchestra, and finally
decided on the orchestra because none of
the local theaters could accommodate so
many persons in a box party. Rex Houl
ton, president of the club, appointed the
following committee to have charge of
the party: George Grimes, chairman;
levers Susmann and Will Noble.

ARE T0BE ENLARGED
Although the magnificent "twelve-story I
office building of the Union Pacific Rail
road company, costing Jl.000.000, and lo
cated at Fifteenth and Dodge streets, is
not entirely completed, it Is understood
that the directors of the Harrlman sys
tem are planning other good things for
Omaha, and that will mean the expen
diture of close to another $1,000,000, giving
employment to several hundred men.
While it Is not known at this time Just
what move the Harrlman men propose to I
make, reports come from the east that It
Is more than likely that the shops will
be materially enlarged and thct a number I
of new departments will be added, thus
making the Omaha plant the most com
plete of any of its kind In the world, not
even excepting those of the New York
Central and the Pennsylvania lines.

Omaha's Debt to
Congress voted millions of dollars to subsidize the first rail
road running from the Missouri river to the Pacific Coast, .The
eastern terminus of the road was fixed by President Lincoln, gov
ernment engineers having surveyed the proposed route. Chief .
among the latter was (Jen. Grenvllle M. Dodge, one of Iowa s
great men. History tells us that Abraham Lincoln visited a num
ber of points along the river and Inspected the topography in '
order to get a correct per-
epectlve of each of several
cities contesting for the
distinction. President Lin
coln held a council with
the engineers and officials
of the railroad company at
the old Revere House In
Council Bluffs, at which it
was decided that Omaha
was the most eligible for
designation as the starting
point of the first great
transcontinental line. At
that time the nation re
garded the proposed rail
road as a military neces
sity, as It would forever
cement the Pacific Coast
region to "the States,"
thus preserving the integ
rity of the entire territory
over which Uncle Sam
claimed dominion. "-
President LlncolW's de
cision was endorsed by the
nation and congress ap
propriated a vast sum of
money to be loaned to the company. From that moment the
destiny of Omaha waa secure. It was predicted that the city
would In time become the metropolis of the middle west, and
that prophecy has been fulfilled. The promlso was made by
public men that Omaha would become the financial and commer
cial center of the Missouri valley, and a distributing point for
the entire northwest; and that prophecy, also, has been fulfilled.
Situated in the heart o( a region whose natural wealth is
great beyond computation Omaha will continue to grow in finan
cial anu commercial importance and her great busluess interests
will enjoy the highest degree of prosperity. That this statement Is
true Is attested by the substantial growth of The Dangers Heserve
Life Company which was established In Omaha over 14 years ago,
and whose career Is typical of the remarkable progress of the
West since Abraham Lincoln ordained that the first Pacific rail
road should traverso Nebraska. Within a period of a little more
than a dozen years, this stalwart western enterprise has amassed
assets in excess of $3,000,000, which sum Is Invested In registered
bonds and first mortgages upon real estate. During 1010 tho
interest income of The Bankers Reserve Life Company was $111,
432, a sum in excess of the amount of death claims paid, while
the new business written was $4,482,725. Policy holders have
received during nine months of 1911 dividends to the amount of
$74,98C.61 and during the period there has been paid to the bene
ficiaries $90,250.00 in death lofcses, while the interest receipts
have been $92,867.00 being a little more than the death lossfl.
The excess security to the policy holders la $678,677.67.
These facts, succinctly stated, attest the financial stability of
the company. It goes without saying that this growth could not
have been attained if the policies sold by the company did not
meet the popular demand for the highest degree of protection at
moderate cost. The new guaranteed annuity policy of The Bank
ers Reserve Life Company of Omaha affords the best form of com
bined protection aud investment for the benefit of families or
estates ever devised by a life Insurance company. Under Its terms
the company guarantees that the second premium shall be reduced
17; that the third premium shall be reduced 18, and so on;
the reduction or guaranteed annuity Increasing one per centum
each year until the twentieth premium Is reduced 26. Then
there is the new Joint endowment policy which matures In event
of the death of either husband or wife. Both these polities are
most liberal In tboir provisions and have proven to be ready
sellers. Agents of the company In 22 states are writing an enor
mous business, the total business in force aggregating $28,
000,000. This solid, conservative western company Is expanding Its
business and U offering liberal terms to agents. A few general
gents will be appointed. It will pay competent Insurance sales
men to write to the company for full Information.
Heirloom Furniture-the Kind with Rugged Character
The same care in selecting furniture should be ex
ercised as is given in choosing materials for a perma
nent home. A home is erected to last a lifetime and to
be bequested to one's heirs. Furniture should go into
the homo to bocomo a part of the family circle and to be handed. down aa heirlooms.
There is only one kind of furniture that is worth while that is "heirloom" furni
ture chairs, tables, beds, ehests, sideboards, which can bo turned over to your chil
dren and your children's children. You are getting your money's worth when you
