hibiting the use of any dynamite or giant

AH committees have reported to their
different heads that the work is over

said to rival anything of its kind ever
attempted in the Magic City before.
Over $1,700 has been collected by Chair
man T. J. Shanahan and the members of
the finance committee. The following is
the mayor's proclamation and the pro
gram of the day.
'. Whereas, July 4 has been set aside as
a legal holiday in commemoration of the
independence of these United States; and.
Whereas, It is not only appropriate but
commendable that our citizens observe
the day in a spirit of patriotism; and.
Whereas, It is customary and in har
mony with the occasion to celebrate this
anniversary by the use of fireworks;
Now, therefore, I, Thomas Hoctor,
mayor of the city of South Omaha,
hereby proclaim and declare said Fourth
of July a legal holiday and call upon our
citizens in observing the spirit of this
occasion to co-operate with the officials
whose duty it is to enforce the ordi
nances of the city, and thereby make the
day a safe and sane one, to refrain from
the use. of fireworks within the city be
fore the fourth day of July and to re
frain at afl times from discharging in or
upon any street, avenue or alley in this
city any firecrackers known and desig
nated aa Aynamite or giant crackers and
no common crackers exceeding four (4)
inches in length.
Witness my hand this twenty-ninth
day of June, 1912.

Six Attempted Burglaries.
Police circles and business men gen
erally were thrown into a state of pertur
bation yesterday by the discovery of six
attempted burglaries within the business
and residence districts. ' The work, which
was done evidently by experts, occurred
some time between midnight and early
So far nothing of value has been taken
by the burglars. Apparently the men
were after money. The. places entered
were the Home Furniture comply, where
the safe was broken Into. An inner door
protected the contents. Pete Peterson's
candy store across the street from the
Home Furniture company store at Twenty-fourth
and I, streets was entered, the
thieves obtaining 5.70 .out of the cash
drawer. William Leanwon's pool hall at
Twenty-fourth and K streets was the next
place forced. The Boston drug store at
Twenty-fourth and F streets, Charles
Pulliam's home at Twenty-fourth and A
streets and the horn of Charles Masson
at Twenty-fourth and K atreets all bore
testimony of having been visited by the
burglars. In the Home Furniture com
pany store tools evidently abandoned by
the thieves were discovered. The tools
consisted of chisels and files. Similar In
struments were discovered In the home
of Charles Masson. - At the Pulllam resi
dence the burglars were surprised by a
young woman of the house, who screamed
and attracted the notice of Harry Trum
ble, a neighbor. Trumble caught sight of
one of the men as he made his get-away.
The police and detectives of the city
were out all day yesterday rounding up
the suspicious characters. Chief of Police
John Briggs and Chief of Detectives
James Sheahan have ordered all their men
to keep a vigilant lookout for suspicious

James Ellis of 2512 Q street, while in
dulging in some horse-play with some
companions .behind Luckey's coal office
at 2513 Q street yesterday evening at 4
o'clock, missed his footing and fell, break
ing his right leg. Kills, with some com
panions, had been wrestling and, it is
thought, drinking before the accident In
an attempt to jump from the top of the
office steps to the shoulders of a com
panion sitting on the ground the accident
occurred. The man on the ground moved
his position and Ellis came down unex
pectedly upon the hard ground. Dr. E. J.
Shanahan set the broken limb and ordered
Ellis to the South Omaha hospital. Cap
tain John Dworak is looking for the other
men. Ellis came here from Chicago a
few days ago. He lived at 3533 Wood

Northwestern and the Union Pacific was
established yesterday. The trains over
the Chicago roads came in according to
schedule and went on west without cre
ating any excitement.
At the Union station about the only
thing that Indicated any change In the
old methods was the fact that the Union
Pacific trains waited for the arrival of
trains off one road, instead of two.
When No. 1 on the Northwestern ar
rived it was Immediately picked up by
a Union Pacific engine and whirled away

Instead of the cars being switched over to
to the siding on which were the cars of the
Northwestern, they were taken in tow
by a Union Pacific engine and carried
west. It was simply a deal by which
one train did not wait for the other.

If the Price of Coffee
Would Double Again v
All The Better!
The price of coffee haa doubled in three or four yeara
And this, despite production has doubled in that time.
The reason for the present high price of coffee was sought and it has
been found that the market supply has been artificially restricted.
The Braslllan government la In the operation and participates in thn
profits to the extent of an export duty of three cents a pound.
And American bankers are financing the scheme.
But wa did not take our pen In hand to condemn anybody concerned '
except COFFEE DRINKERS to condemn them and. also, to congratulate

It Isn't exactly inspiring to see American capital finding Us way to a
foreign country to be used there to the end of exploiting American family
However, this is not the saddest fact involved, to our way of thinking.
It ia most regrettable that the consumption of coffee in this country
haa Increased to a point to warrant manipulation of the supply.
Wa don't Ilka to look upon coffee as becoming a NECESSITY to tho
American people, and view with alarm the activities of capital auggeating
that it IS becoming a necessity.
Coffee isn't good for you.
Too much of It is positively harmful
If the present price, doubled in four years, would double again, it
would be the best thing that ever happened to the excessive coffee drinker. '
He wouldn't drink as much of it.
Better yet, maybe he wouldn't drink it at all
Just possibly you have us put down aa being a bit nervy In this com

On cup of coffee isn't going to prove fatal, nor two cupa of coffee.
Two cupa may upset your entire system, make you uneasy, restless
and peevish and unfit for best results for a day, but It will wear off after
awhile the same as a whiskey drunk wears off.
But bring to us a person who drinks two and three cups of coffee reg
ularly for breakfast, or a person who drinks coffee three times a day, and
wa will. aliow you a person with a bad-acting heart, a sluggish liver, a

Ha will tell you that coffee contains caffeine, which ha gives in tha .
