Next week the teacher of the state
will receive the formal Invitations of
Omaha end I,lncoln, both of which de
sire to entertain the teachers at next
year's convention. They will be sent
out In printed form by the executive
committee of the association. The teach
ers will then vote by mail on the place
for holding the next meeting.
Lincoln Is very sorry that the teachers
met in Omaha this year, because the
Lincoln merchants have figured to a
nicety their profit on the teachers and
estimate that the convention brings
them 100,000 worth of trade every time It
meets In Lincoln. Bo they are busy try
ing to knock Omaha.
They got the Lincoln Journal to print
story knocking Omaha, then had It
reprinted In circular form' and sent to
newspapers all over the state. As far
as can be ascertained, not one of the
papers reprinted the article. Many edit
ors, on receiving the circulars, Imme
diately mailed them to the publicity
bureau of the Omaha Commercial club.
.The circulars were very clumsy. There
was nothing on circular or envelope to
tell where they came from, except a
lock box number In the upper left hand
corner of the envelope. The senders
were not even clever enough to invent a
fake "news bureau" for the occasion.
It Is presumed that the Lincoln Com
mercial club paid for the circulars and

Owiaha-'S. t This is not the, case, accord
ing to officials of tha Omaha Commercial
club, but it it were, the teacher would
still be assured of having a place to sleep
In OmahA, whereas many oC. them have
had to all up all night In Lincoln because
they could not find rooms.
Next to the state ' flr, the teachers'
convention is the If's'gest money bringing
affair that visits j.lflooln and the mer
chants of ths capital are bending every
effort to ket auother chenoe at the teach
ers' pocketbooks next' year. They fcot
so used to having the teachers In their
town that they freely used tha trad ar-
gumen in getting their subscriptions
for entertaining the teachers.
The Omaha Commercial club, at . the
lime It Invited the teachers last year,
advised them to spend their, money In
their home towns before coming . to
Omaha,, giving their local . merchants all
the benefit of their trade. Omaha wants
to entertain the teacher because the
metropolis has many large institutions
that they should know about and about
which they should be abls to tell their
pupils. This will do Omaha and the
state more good, the Commercial club
figures, than any amount of money the
teachers might spend.

the attention of those living nearby, and
went to I.avls cell, where they found
the negro asleep. Hubert Chase, an
other negro, who was held In the station
as a witness In the Rchwab case, was not
molested. Ctmee said Davis fought
desperately and shrieked for mercy, but

on the head which stretched him un

to his death.
The trouble which caused the shooting
of (Schwab stsrted In a saloon at Fair

Kchwab, a brother of the dead man and
Davis. Hchwab claimed the negro called
him vile names.
After the party left the saloon Freder

with Davis, who drew a pistol and sent
a bullet through Kchwsb's heart. Davis
then fired two shot at Frank Schwab

REVOLT FOR CIRCUS LIBERTY

When uirrus day srrlve.1 father told
us we were not to attend the circus;
and, what waa more, we were to work ail
dav and not to see the crowds or the
t told Jim 1 Intended to make .at sneak
and see the circus If I died for It. Jim
was a good boy and wanted me not to
go, but when he saw I .was determined
ho accompanied me in the wild run w
made for liberty; . ' . .
Then we started out to. borrow money
with which to attend the evening per
formance. Put we didn't mate any prog
res, so when the band struck up for the
night show we decided to crswt under
the tent. It seemed easy and f was
about In when a man caught m by the
heels and pulled me out. While the or
cus man was cuffing me I saw another
circus man cuffing Jim, about twenty iect
lie had alno failed. Then we met a
man named McCurry, a member of my
father's church, a good man who did not
Intend to witness the performance, but
who wa nevertheless walking around
Outside to see the crowds and hear the
band. W appealed to Mm. We said we
had run off and should get a whlppini,
but that It would be terrible to get a
beating and not see ths performance.
Mr. McCurry looked around, to see no
one was watching, and said;
"Well, I don't want your father to know
It, but I'll loan you the money."
A few minutes later w were Inside the
tent, whistling with the other boys, and
Inviting the circus men to "play ball,"
for the performance had not yet com
menced. But when It did begin It waa all
we had expected and more. It was Miles
Orion's circus, I remember, and the
clown was a marry fellow railed Dr.
But at last the show waa over, and Jim
and I hung around an hour or more,
dreading to go home we knew what was
coming to us.
The Is st wagon drove away about 1
o'clock In the morning, and then there
waa nothing left for us but to face the
editor. So we sneaked In at the kitchen
door; we Imagined mother would leave
that open for us, and found she had.
After entering the kitchen there waa a
door feeding Into the sitting room, and
then a stairway leading up to our room.
We had gone around the house and noted
a light In the sitting room; we expected
trouble" ther. After entering the kitchen
we tried the knob of the sitting room
door, and tried to turn It quietly. Kver
notice how a door knob squeaks when
you try to turn It, quietly? That door
knob squeaked, and when we turned it
and went into the sitting, room there
sat the editor, waiting for us. I went In
first and Jim sneaked In behind me.
"Well," father ssld, "you've been to the
There wa no use trying1 to deceive him.
I was willing to try,' but knew It was im
possible, so I replied, meekly:
"Te, sir." - i
He thought a while, as though trying to
decide Just how hard he would whip us,
and finally Inquired:
"How did you like It?"
I waa too' wise a boy to be enthusiastic,
under the circumstances, so I replied:
"Oh, I didn't think It amounted to
much." ' (It did, though; It waa the very
best show I ever saw In my life.)
For some reason ths editor didn't grab
us and begin the punishment we expected,
and ha had no switch.
"Did they say anything about me?" he
I hadn't thought of that before,' but
evidently he had been expecting an at
tack. I repeated what-tha clown had
said, making It as mild aa possible.
"How did the people take it?" he asked
Then X had an Idea, I replied with ant
nation; "Welt, sir, you should have been there
and seen how the people took It! Bill
Hlllman, the sheriff, walked down to ths
ring and shook his fist at the clown and
said the people wouldn't atand for. low
circus people abusing a prominent man
Ilka you. And Mr. Cuddy, the banker,
he walked down to the ring, too, and
told the circus men what he thought of
them. Her said you were one of ta
most useful men In town and that people
looked up to you, .and tbel they didn't
want te hear any more of that".
The editor waa evidently pleased; still
he delayed the whipping.
"Well,'' heeatd at-last, after thinking
awhile, "hurry -on te bed. - We have a
big days work ahead of u tomorrow.
When we got In bed. we chuckled softly,
and Jim nudged me with his elbow and
said I was certainly the boldest, wisest
boy the country ever produced. , And we
paid back-Mr. McCurry next day with
ducka we stole from mother and later
fixed It all right with her-she never
was a hard on us aa father was. n
we told her how we bad fooled father,
she said it waa a sin, but we oaught her

WHERE WEALTH HAS GONE
Life Isasraace at Mighty Factor la
the Aecmanaletloa of
In the fifty years from 1819 to 1910 the
population of the United States trebled,
growing from M.ooo.ono to 90.ofja.noo,,. and
the wealth of the United States grew
about seven and eight fold, advancing
from 110.000,000,000,000 to estimates which
vary from 1107,000,000,000 to $120,000,000,000.
To whom has gone thla rapid Increase
In . wealth, more than twice as rapid as
population ; ' "
Mr. Frederick L. Hoffman ' furnlshVs
one answer In an article on American In
surance for half a century. The
average else of a life Insurance policy
Is under $2,600. Some of these policies
are held ly the very' rich, but the great
majority, as theis value shows, afe held
by men of moderate means. IJfe Insur
ance Is the saving fund of the salaried
man and wage earner, rather than of
the great capitalist.
If the great Increase In national wealth
has gone to the very rich, then the total
of policies and the amount of insurance
would not keep up with the increase of
wealth. If the Increase in wealth has
been disturbed through the whole mass
of. the community, then life insurance
would grow with the wealth. If on the
other hand, those of moderate means
have been abe, a the years went on, to
save more and more and to have a larger
and larger proportion of the mortgage on

Ruth Paxson, saying that she would
spend her Christmas In Tien Tsln. China,
where several thousand refugees from ths
Interior districts have been flocking dur

mission branch of the local Young Men's
Christian association and ' has been
actively engaged In this work for the last
three years. he expects to remeln In
China for the next two year.
In her letter, Miss Paxson writes that
the conditions In Tien Tsln are deplorable
and most unsanitary. Many of the refu

of them having anything to eat save
what they can beg about the city or
obtain from the meaner bread lines that
hsve been established, nor have they any
hospital attention except that of a small
branch of Red Cross workers. Thousands
of the peasants are flocking to tha coast

so violent, leaving their belongings be

tWil some ten yesrs ago It was an
axiom in the big packing house circles of
Chicago that a salesman should be
guided by four rules' as laid down by
one of the famous heads of that Industry.
He Was noted for Tnl brusqueness, and
also a democratic nature that scorned
the usual hedge of clerks that stands be
tween a big man and his callers.
A bright, manly-looking chap entered
the office one day when he wa very
"Good morning." he began politely.
"Well, what the blankety-blank-blank
do you want?" he growled.
"I want civil treatment. And I want It
blankety-blank-blahk quick," came the
"Oh!" The packer looked up In sur
prise. Modulating hi voice a trifle, tie
asked: "What can I do for you?"
"I want a job as a salesman. I have
worked as a butcher. I have worked in
the packing houses, and I have sold
smaller lines to the meat trade. I !iave
references to prove that I deliver the
goods, and I have them with me. I want
to get Into a bigger field, and I am here
to make good. Have you got a Job?"
"If w haven't, we'll make an opening
for you. Report to the sales manager
As the young man started to leave the
office the brusque old packer called him
"Do you know why you got that Job?"
he asked. I
"Well, you have the , three essentials
that make a good salesman. I'll point
them out to you. so you'll remember 'em.
First, you don't think; any man Is better
than you are, and you have the nerve to
stick to It. Second, you know the good
points of what' you had to sell. Third,
you stated them In the fewest possible
words.) I'll add a fourth get out before

years." said Mr. II. N. Trane, a well
known carpenter residing at Ml ; Flor
ence avenue, city. In discussing the mer
its of th new Mtonic, 'Tona Vita,' re
cently. "I have had stomach trouble for years,
my. appetite was poor nnd when I did
eat anything rs would form on my
stomach and cause misery for some time.
My bowels were badly constipated!. The
slightest exertion would cause palpita
tion of the heart. Everything seamed
wrong with me. 1 was so nervous that I
didn't sleep well. The uric acid In my
blood Caused my Joints to swell and pain
me constantly. My liver and kldireys
were also affected.
"I treated with various physicians, who
diagnosed my case ns catarrh of the
stomach. I tried ail kinds of remedies
but without success. I finally heard of
a new remedy callrd Tona Vita' and de
cided to give It a trial. I began to Im
prove from the first dose and' now after
only ten days' treatment I am a well

"We are meeting people each day and
the rale of the tonic In Omaha Is now
very large," said one of the specialists
who are here Introducing 'Tona Vita' to

ports from other cities and the sale In
all of them Is tremendous. In fact, the

that It has been impossible to prepare
the tonic fast enough to take, care of It.
The Approved Formula company Is re
ceiving wires from druggists everywhere
asking for the medicine, but at present
It Is Impossible to fill these orders. I.Ms
demand Is all the more remarkable when
you consider that the tonic was unknown
on this side of the water until a few

successful unless It had a mission to ac

mission. "Tona Vita" Is nccomplishtiig
Its mission. It Is making V'reir-out, de
