oue&ted Mr. I re to deliver the bonds.
Mr. I're has refused. City Oerk ln
Kuller has also refused, and the legality
of the steps lesrfinff lo the Bale of the
bo.d I now bhu; questioned. It Is
chimed by Mr. I're and Mr. Huller that
Tie treasurer should have sold the bonds,
leiil not the comptroller.
"I'm net looking- fur any extra work,"
mid Mr. I're, ''ami am simply a scr
a:it of the pebplo and willlnpt to do

the nrccet-tiing leading to the sals of the
bond? Is a fiasco"!"

Sl'liifr. Rorielt & Co. Iiavo written
air. Ire asking for certified transcript
ot the proceedings' leading to tite sale of
the bond, to i;uard them against pur
clus;. of worthless recmith?. The letter
Avas referred to Mr. Coseivve vho had
handled the work up to the iLwage of
an ordinance auihoilsiiut tfci fj1i Cos
giove refused to nmwer the letter. I're
Hid he knew no!hiu of the proceedings,
Ind asked for information and had been
told by Cosjrova "we're taking care ot
the matter."
Mot words pnssrJ between the tivaa
- urer and th. comptroller during the In
' Urvlew. wlileh was culminated whan Mr.
Cneirove declared the treasurer's office
"didn't amount to much anyway." This
statement Incensed the treasurer and the
dispute became ieronal.
Accrued interest on the bonds and a
luemlum of ll.MS was to have been paid
by tfpltxer, llorlrk & Co. upon delivery.
The dispute has resulted In holding all
proceedings, hi ubeyrthce and as the time
is short and the Hpltser, Itorick company
have entered into no contract with the
, city nor ara bound to purchase the bonds
1 unless it ran be shown they wen
legally 'Issued It is feared that failure
to deliver will ultimately result In cancellation.

The kind of furniture,
in this sale is the kind
with which asking could
surround himself in any
other home than a castle
or palace and still feel
that he had companions
of wood which were inver
acious keeping with the
dignity and manner of his
exalted position.
Xo man lives a true life unless he pos
sesses a happy home and what is any
home without harmonizing furniture!
Picture in your mind that home where
the tables, chairs and beds arc shoddy.
It destroys the very ideal of domestic,
bliss, happiness and pleasure. Xo, thu
true home must have Iwautiful furniture
not pretentious furniture, necessarily,
but chairs, tables, settees, beds, buffets,
chiffoniers, that have beauty in simple,
graceful lines; that hnve it in rugged,
sturdy exteriors; that have it in massive,
knock-defying countenances. Furniture
of such characteristics is the kind that
makes u home a place of everlasting
bliss. It is everlasting furniture, made of
genuine, honest wood.
This store calls attention, during the
ebbing hours of this grentest of January
sales, to the good-to-live-with furniture
that is presented here at marvclously
low prices. It is economical fnrutiure,
for it is made of brains as well as of
wood. It is built up from true wood of
the forest, so it will last not only for
months but for years. It goes right from
the forest to the fireside to become as
muoh a part of that home as the chil
dren. It is not only furniture of this gen
eration, but also furniture of the next
generation. That is the reason it is ec
onomy furniture; it lasts so long that it
saves money for home-lovers, keeping
them from buying more furniture to take
its place in the near future.
Another jmint to be remembered
about Miller, Stewart & Beaton furnituro
is that it is uot "simply furniture". The
modern ideal furniture is not "just
furniture," designers tell us; it is more
good, honest furniture, patterned for
beauty, grace, service and harmony. All
tables arc tables, but not all tables ans
wer the ideal of this age. A table to bo
satisfactory to the modern American,
home must possess the qualities that will
jiermit it to harmonize with the general
scheme of fnrnishings in addition to be
ing of service for the uses of the dining
room, parlor or sitting room. The furni
ture here is the kind that will grace the
rooms of the best homes in Omaha, meet
ing with the exacting requirement of
the American ideal.
Those of you who have regarded
furniture as just wood, should come here
during the closing days of this sale and
walk through the aisles of this furniture
world, viewing the beauties, and grasp
ing the new thoughts contained in the
modem ideal furniture. You will read
ily see what a difference there is iu
furniture what truly good wood com
bined with thinking brains can produce
for comfort, happiness and bliss iu the
American home.
