Tha Missouri river yesterday left It
tanks on the Iowa aide and began pour

across tha territory lying between that
locality and Thirty-seventh street Al
anon It had backed up east of Thirty
seventh street, filling a large territory
ts tha northwest with a flood In aoi
low places at least twelve feet deep. A
number of houses wets Isolated and sur

began hurriedly to mora out.
Thirty-seventh street, tba thoroughfare
that lead to lha river pumping station,
ha been graded up higher than any
other cross street running north of Ave

noon tha water on tha east side of th
street lacked but a few Inches la

water' had filled the slough 00 the west

side wa nearly three fart lower than

for It would hav given th river a short

IOWA FACTORY INSPECTOR
PAYS VISIT TO BLUFFS
William w! ehanaoo, Iowa state, In
spector of factories, workshops and pub-
tie buildings. I In tbe city looking attar
hi duties. Th last autumn ths etat in
spector spent considerable Urns her en
forcing romplianc with the law requiring
fire escapes, and encountered a pleating
willingness on ths part of owner of luch
buildings at required th devices to fully
comply with the' law. Mr. Shannon's
purpose now Is to enforce mother section
of the state law designed for th better
ment of th environment of employe.
Thla relates to adequate toilet fadlltle
for men and women.
The Isw Is very explicit sad requires at
least one toilet for every twenty em
ploye. On section of the law reads:
"la factories, mercantile establishments,
workshops Snd mills adequate washing
facilities shkll b provided for employes;
and when Uhor performed Is of inch
character as to require change of cloth
ing, wholly or In part, by employes, there
shall be provided a dressing room and
lockers tor keeping clothing and afford
ing washing fadlltlee aeparate for each
sex. and a Person or person shall be
allowed to us th facilities assigned to
the opposite sex. A suitable supply of
water for drinking shall also be provided."
Another section ot the law makes It a
serious offense to permit obscene writing
or marking in such placet.
Inspector Shannon said that the condl-
tlena In. Council Bluff ware tar above
the geieral average, but a full cemphaace
with the law will require fifteen or
twenty additional toilet The owners of
such buildings have been notified Imme
diately to supply the required facilities.
'1 - have Inspected nearly all of the
more Important establishments In Coua
ctl Bluffs since I came bare and find
that In -every -Instance the fir ear pea
and other Miprovemenu for the safety ot
employe painted out last tall have been
provided.'' said. Mr. Shannon. "Not Only
have the safety appliances been provided
willingly, but they are of even a better
character than tha law requires. The
owner and manage re have apparently
tried m every way to protect their em
ployes. In some of tha factories no fur
ther Improvement apparently could be
made. Tbe big candy factory of tba John
0. Woodward company at now the modal
for tbe whole state. There la nothing
that I can sea that could further add to
the safety of the large number of em
ployes or pro rids better mean for their
Mr. Shannon left last evening for Dee
Motnes, but will return la a week or two

After God, Says Points
Aa audience that occupied all at th
sat In Ih rooms of th local Theoeopht
eal society listened last'vnlng to th
second ot th series of lecture by Judge
J. Points of Omaha. Ill theme, "Th
Idol and th Ideal," gar him aa oppor
tunity to present In a masterly manner
hi conception of the truths revealed by
lb theosophta philosophy. With faultiest
loglo and eloquent word h showed that
Ih idol was simply th material repre
sentation ot the Ideal and that tbe only
form ot Idolatry possible waa where the
Ideal wa not that of the Individual, but
on that had been glvsn him by another,
on Uit hid been forced upon him by
th authority of creed or dogma. It then
became a part of, hi personality, not ot
hi Individuality,, a posssssloa of th
physical, not ths spiritual man, and It
thus becaih an Idol whloh he worshiped.
He made beautifully clear tha theosophte
contention that "all rellgkms are th
radii of a elrcl. th center of which Is
God. snd even Idolatry I a groping after
Judge Points' lecture are arousinf
much Interest In those who are hearing
them. On next Friday evening he will
talk oa Theosophy and Evolution." '

Why Does a Name Mean So Much? Because
The mere MENTIONING of name standi for GOOD principles or BAD prfndples. Sorae'pianos, like some people, have
GOOD names, while some pianos, like some people, have BAD names.
We Are Offering These Prizes for a Name for a Player Piano. Why We Do It
Our factory at Minneapolis Is prepared to launch on the market a full stae 88-note Player Piano. What we are after nowJs
A NAME for this Player Piano that is expressive of. quality, a name that Is easy to pronounce and that will mean something.
We are not going to depend upon our own ideas, but will leave the naming of our Player Piano to the people of this city and
community. Too many people nowadays are buying pianos and player pianos with actually "any old name" on the fall-board
or'front of the instrument, and simply because of that fact they do not know what they are getting. We are authorized by the
factories to spend a large part of our energy and advertising money to burn it in the minds of the people so strong that the
NAME of "OUR" Player Piano will become a by-word and a common household wcrd with everybody in this community. Isnt
this good judgment on our part? . . .
WHAT does the piano-buying public have to guide or direct-them In the purchase of a piano or Player Piano? Onlv "A
NAME" In realitv. Of course
as piano dealers, can ten you aoout our ratio: "Tour next, ooor nearnoor nas one.--we
have hundreds of them In this community, then we have "SAID SOMETHING hi
