U. P. Offers Its Old
Sale for $110,000
If the present plans go through, about
the only officials who will be left In the
old headquarters of the,XJnlon Pacific
Hail road company building Thursday
night will be those of the passenger de
partment. No notice to "quit" has been given the
passenger department, but It Is looked
for any day, as the tables,, desks und
cases ordered some .weeks ago are un
derstool to have arrived.
Tuesday morning the old headquarters
building at Ninth and Fui nam streets
was placarded with the first "For Sale"
sign In Its history. For a long time of
ficers and directors of the Union Pacific
felt loth to sell the property, the policy
being not to dispose of real estate hold
lngs lu good cities and towns, but as
the company owned but three lots at
Ninth and Furnam streets. It was decided
to put the property on the market The
price Is fixed at $110,000, which includes
the five-story buldlng.
Several prospective purchasers looked
the building over Tuesday morning and
air agreed that It Is cheap at the price
asked. It has trackage on two sides and
it la agreed that It Is desirable for Job
bing of warehouse purposes. The founda
tion Is heavy and the walls strong enough
for carrying any load. A house wreck
ing concern has viewed the property
and the ' representative who made the
figures states that the salvage from the
building would pay more than one-fourth
of the price asked for lots and building.
The Interior wood finish of tho old
headquarters building Is mostly black'

First Session Wednesday.
MEETING LASTS THREE DAYS
Orpheum rnrty, Uunqnet and An
Antn Hide Are Simie of the Hide
Issues of tke Convention
Which Are Planned.
Dishonest advertising should be stopped
by law, said Resident Paul llerpol
shelmer of Seward, In his annual address
to the Mid-West Implement Dealers' as
sociation yesterday, and he asked the
association to go on record In favor of a
national law directed against the prac
tice. "We are In sad need of a national law,"
Bald Mr. llerpolslmlmer, "which will com
pel houses which use the United States
mails to furnish the goods as per their
advertisements, and not to allow hem to
advertise one thing and furnish another,
or to advertise in a misleading and de
"The national federation has taken the
necessary steps to obtain such a law and
We should endorse Its elforts and prevail
upon all senators and legislators to us3l.1t
In bringing about such a law."
Mr. Herpolshelmer spoke In favor of
1-cent postage, of tho use of convicts In
road work In the Ktate, of an Investigation
by the government of tho express com
panies and of action to prevent the adop
tion by TJncla Sant of a parcels post. He
protested against the action of the west
ern railroads In ruling against tho loading
of binder twine In mixed cars.
The tost of Accounting.
An Important fcaturo of the president's
address was that part touching cost ac
counting, which has been taken up as an
educational program by associations of
Jobbers, retailers and manufacturers all
over the couitry. The cost accounting
system, he explained, Is worked out by
experts, and will show the dealer the
exact relation of his expenses and profits
at any lime, and if he is losing, will show
Just how ho Is losing and suggest the
means for stopping the leak.
President HerpoHheimer announced that
C. M. Juhrihon of Hush City, Minn., would
give a blackboard talk on cost account
ing at Wednesday morning's session.
The convention's business sessions will
close Thursday noon.
An Implement exposition Is being held In
connection with the convention and the
Auditorium Is filled with engines, wind
mills, buggies, plows and other wares.
Opposes Convict-Made Twine.
M. L,. Gooseman, secretary of the Mid
West Implement Dealers' association In
his annual report, attacked the bill which
was before thelcglalature at it's last ses
sion, which provided for the erection and
maintaining of a binding twine plant at
me stato penitentiary. He said:
"Duilng the last session the legislature
had before It a bill relative to the twine
piant at the. slate penitentiary. We did
not have a standing legislative commit
tee, so our president appointed Jacob
uender of Sutton, and Mr. McCarger of
Crete, to see what cou.d be done to pre
vent this measure from being enacted,
ihey were In Lincoln several days and
were satisfied that this bill would not
ue considered any further during tnat ses
"We feel that for this state to establish
a binding twine plant for the purpose of
manufacturing twine with, convict labor,
and to tell the product In direct compe
tition with that of its free citizens and
taxpayers who are entitled to all the priv
ileges g. anted by our constitutions Is un
just, anu we snouid enedorse a strong
i t-solutlon condemning any such action."
Mr. Qooseman abked that the Implement
dealers take an Interest In politics, espe
cially state Issues. "The retail merchants,
.ii general," he said, ' and the Implement
dealers in particular, are so busy trying
to meet competition, both real and Imag
.nury, that they woefully neglect to take
the lntei eat In politics that they should.
This Is especially true with state Issues.
If we Intend to gain anything In this line,
we wil have to get busy.
"The Nebraska Etate Hallway commis
sion Is seriously considering the cancella
tion of all rules providing for reduced
mtos on returned shipments and If we ate
going to keep this rule In force we must
oe present at all public hearings on the
ubject and write the commission, giving
bood reasons why we think the rule
should not be cancelled."
The dealers Tuesday night were the
quests of the Omaha and Council Bluffs
implement and Vehicle club at a smoker.
A large number of visitors wer ln attend
ance to witness the exhibitions.

ception and entertainment of iOO dele

Pulse Says :
It says "Calumet" Tor the
critical housewives of America have
found that Calumet Baking Powder
makes the most appetizing, light,
wholesome food that Calumet
is the most economical and dependable
of all Baking: Powders.
If you. too. Mrs. Housewife, want to learn what Calumet mana
to you, bake with it just one batch of biscuits. If you don't find it
unlike any other so much greater in leavening power in uniformity
in purity return it, and get your money b&ck.
That's all we ask and think what it means to you to always be
sure that each time you bake you will have the most tempting biscuits,
pastry, etc. Think of it the highest quality Baking Powder at a
moderate price the most economical in use. Cheap big can kinds
give you quantity, but not quality. High-priced trust brands mean
extravagance. For no Baking Powder can be equal in quality to
Calumet. Was not that proven when it received the Highest Award
at World's Pure Food Exposition ?
Don't be deceived ask for Calumet and get it.

Thesuccess of "The Broad Highway' 'and
it was a very great success was due to its
appeal to our sense of Romance and Adven
ture. There is a suggestion about the open
road as of something about to happen, a
suggestion which Farnol develops most
happily, for something does happen.
And so his short story, " The Journey's
End," is a story of this same road, or the
end of such a road, and the end of a jour
ney thereon, and of a wanderer and what
he found at the journey's end. This is the
first short story JefTery Farnol has pub
lished since his book made him known. It
is a good short story, one of the good short
stories in the November Century, but by
no means the only one. "Straight Golf,"
"Syndicating Sarah" and "His Unquiet
Ghost," the latter by Charles Egbert
Craddock, help to make a most promising
start for the eighty-third volume of the
