"Every bullet baa Its billet." sans a
poet Ions ago, but soma bullets find their
mission ends In love and not In woa. For
example, look at all tha bullets that didn't
hit Captain Arthur Carmk-hael aa he
and Teddy charged up San Juan hill.
Suppose any one of them had bit him In
a place other than tha fleshy part of
tha lee; above the knee what might have
happened' la Ehrensteln! But the hurtling
bullets missed him as they flew In furious
whirl, and ha was eared to bring a throne
to tha sweetest little girl. To be aura,
he got the girl ha wanted, and tha
Well, perhaps Harold McGrath ought
to have the credit, after all. Ha has
made considerable Improvement In this
matter of stealing Infanta of royal birth
aad concealing them until later on In
Ufa, when they are auddenly restored
through tha mlnlatration of noma com
mon person from England or America.
Balfe began It, when he awtped the dear
little daughter of tha count, and had her
sing about dreaming of dwelling within
marble halls; Verdi muddled It up dread
fully, because ae could not control tha
hasty temper of the Contl dl Luna, and the
aad taking off of both Leonora aad Man
rtco followed; Anthony 'Ope 'Awktna man
aged tha matur a trifle better, when he
sent out Rudolph Raaaendyll to aave tha
throne of Run tenia, and his plan was
slightly Improved upon when George
Barr McCutcbeon drafted a Lorry G ren
tal I to prevent tha war between Maura
tama and Lusltania or was tt between
the Olympic and the Kronprlnxen Lulse?
and wed with Princess Tteve, just to
show the world what a real American
could do If ha turned hla hand to being
a king. And then there was tha Inspired
genius that showed us that "The king of
Kronberg la not tha king of Kronbarg,
and ret the king of Kronbarg Uvea:" And
tha Castles did a pretty fair Job of adjust
ing hochwohlgebornen affairs when they
humbled the pride of Jeateo. And others
have tried H at various times.

to wed with royalty. How sad! Tha law,
not tha tart that Hlldegarde wasn't a
princess, for she la a very eharmlnc
young woman, and we are all right glad
that she cams to America to live among
us. Also, It'a lucky for President Teft
that tha play wasn't produced In every
theater In Massachusetts on Monday. If
It had been, the talk ot good old Teddy
and tbe Hough Riders and Ban Juan hill
would surely have decided the day In
favor of the colonel, who was only a lieu
tenant colonel at that time.
Aa to the play Its story follows the
story of the book very closely, and as the
press agent says everybody has read the
book. It's no use In repealing It here.
Tha company works with energy to give
life to tha heroic commonplaces with
which tbe dialogue abounds, -and the
varioue theatrical situations that make
up the action of the play. It la not the
fault of any one in the company that
tha audience at tha Brandels last night
was not moved to enthusiasm. Miss Ack
erman Is a beautiful girl, and acta her
role amailngly well; Miss Nelson Is also
pretty and capable, and worthy to be
either a princess or the wife ot an
American diplomat. Maria Van has a
comedy role that she makes much of.

CARTERCARS DAMAGED '

Fire, supposed to have been started by

worth of property last night In tha Car
tercar building, liU Fa . nam street, which
Is owned by W. K. Foshler, Nebraska
Cartercar agent. The largest part of the
damage will be occasioned to eighteen
automobiles, which were damaged by
water. It is thought that SIW each will
cover tha loaa from tbla source, however.
One machine stored In tha basement
worth about 11,500. was entirely destroyed
and another on tha first floor damaged
to tbe extent of about SMO. Tha loaa to
the building is estimated at tlM). On
tha third floor was stored about 11.000
worth of. the household effects of Rob

Burlington. This property was damaged
about two and is fully Insured, as waa
all of the other property.

bulla were engaged In battle, probably
for the presidency of the herd, while the

The animal reared and plunged at each

they were thrown to their knees, and

the defeated elk for a few seconds and

DOLLAR A YEAR FOR PEANUTS
How Mr. Geohrr tares Saiall fhaace
'frona the Poeketa af the
Every American, regardless of age, sex
or income, spent tl.CS for peanuts last
year. Aa some, the present writer In
cluded, did not buy sny peanuta at all,
more or leas people must have apent a
great deal more. At all events, ths
peanut bill of thla rotintry for the laat
twelve montha waa tl'S.000.000. The con
sumer paid that.
To take the other side of the industry,
one peanut man down In Virginia, who
waa a little farmer nine yeara ago, la
now worth nearly T.,0.0U1. Every cent
of It waa made out of peanuts. Thla Vir
ginian has now one of tha largeat and
finest plants In the south.
Walnuta may carry off the palm among
nuta, if the vote of epicures Is taken,
but the peanut Is undoubtedly the most
generally popular nut there la. The vast
trade In It la not generally realised, nor
that of recent years tha hard labor In
planting, picking and threshing peanuts
Is being almost entirely eliminated. Ma
chinery is steadily replacing the Yamtltar
negro on tha peanut farms. There are
garurplows for breaking the ground, for
sowing, for sorting and cleaning ca most
complicated process), and now there haa
come Into use a machine for burrowing
Into the ground and digging up the tooth
With all this mechanical evolution Vir
ginia 'Is beginning to lose her historic
supremacy as the peanut state. She atlll
leads, but only by a narrow margin.
Oklahoma and Texas, with large capital
Invested and fine plants set up, are stead
ily wresting her honors from her.
Out in these states of the southwest
as much as 1,000 acres are laid down In
peanuts at one time, yielding with expert
management 30H.O00 bushels.
Tha peanut la the typical American nut,
but it has many rivals. Something like
tl2.O99.00O worth of nuts come Into this
country a year. Of foreign nuts the wal
nut la the "top notcher" among these
nuts Imported. I'p to the end ot August
of tbla year t2.W0.OM worth of walnuts
had come In, despite enormous advances
la tbe culture of the Persian, or English,
walnut in California.
The Imported nuta represented 11.000,090
pounds, the Callfornlan nuta 11.000.ona.
Cocoanuts come next on the list of these
foreign auts. The nuta In the shell to
talled only Jl,01i,68, but the cocoanut
meat, for tha moat part ahredded, dedi
cated or otberwlae prepared, brought tha
figure up to R.1M.U1.
As ths whole nuts enter duty free, no
record of their weight Is kept, but of
tha unprepared meat the prodigious quan
tity of .4t.M pounds was Imported.
That America ta not losing Its tasta
for any kind of nuts, but rather liking
them mora and mora, la proved by tha
circumstance that notwithstanding the
rapidly augmenting domeatle production
the Imports do not tall off at all. Nearly
tl.600,000 worth of almonds cams In laat
year (despite the fart that the California
crop was fully that value), and close to
11,000.01 worth of Brasll nuts.
A great delicacy that reaches the big
cities along with these latter Is the cream
nut, probably the moat "exclusive" of all
note. These are also known aa paradlaa
