VOU have the right to
blame the dealer when
your furniture goes wrong.
Furniture purchasing is an important
transaction. It usually involves a fair sum of
money; it always involves your comfort and
satisfaction. The furniture we offer is not
made simply to sell; it is made to wear. And
first of all it is made to please. You will find
nothing here that looks "cheap."
But you will find nothing here that does
not represent true economy.
We recognize in Berkey & Gay furniture,
which we exclusively sell here, the best value
for the price. Back of it is the reputation of
half a century of faithful furniture making and
the standing guarantee of the makers them
selves. To this we add our guarantee. We
know the furniture and we recommend it un
reservedly. With the many pieces on our
floors sand the large book of direct photo
gravures we enable you to choose from over
2,000 different styles and designs.
Make it convenient to come in this week
and inspect these offerings:

BLUFFS REJECTS COMMISSION
Sew Form of Government Voted
Down in City Across River.
LOST BY MAJORITY OF 402
Ll;ht Vote Cast and Small Amount
of Interest Takes Generally by
Electors City Fathers
"Loses All" in Live
Every ward in the city Tuesday reen
tered Its' protest ese'nst acy change ot '
the municipal . form of government in
Counoll Bluffs and defeated the attempt
to enforce the commissioner plan by the
decisive vote represented by the differ
ence of 1,(67 against 965 for the propo
sition. In five of the fourteen city precincts
the vote favored the change, but the
majorities were weak In comparison to
the vote where the stronger protests were
registered against it. It will now be two
years before It can again bs brought
A very languid interest was taken in
the special election and lens than 50 per
cent of the total vote of the eity was
polled. Not a symptom of trouble, not
an indication of ruffled tempers, wae re
ported at any of the polling places.
There was no "electioneering" in any
sense of the term. The Sixth ward,
where the greatest noise was made and
the most extravagant claims asserted
by those favoring the plan, gavs a sub
stantial majority In the negative.
The first precinct gave almost two to
one negailve and the other two. Includ
ing East Omaha, gave small favorable
The Fifth ward, where the same claims
were made, gave the largest majorities
In the city against the proposition, more
than five to one In the Second precinct
and more than two to one in the First.
The First precinct of the Third ward
favored the plan by a small majority
and the Hecond precinct voted just two
to one against it.
The only explanation Is that Robert B.
Wallace, who has been an enthusiastic
leader of the movement, resides in the
First precinct of that ward.
1 Result In Detail,

character made the count easy and the
