CITY PROPERTY FOR SALE
Bargainspo wn Town
Not many 'good 'properties ' in the CE
VELOPINt ' BUSINESS . DISTRICT can
be bought right, ..but. we havejthree spe
cial bargains this Weekl'- ''"- -.
A large corner more'; than a quarter
block larger than the Wb.'.wr ground
and almost as large- as', the .te-ot the
U. P. headquarters. Open m three aides
located in the new "up street 'business
(iisuict, just a block west of the new
touit house. An experienced extern hotel
mak has asked to have, a ho-t built
here for him. We have thought it i
- littie too far up for that. Ho says not.
He may be right. We all "say it is
coming. He says it is there now. 'Some
times it takes an outsider to show us,
The special price we have is per
front foot. That would have seemed
nigh 5 years ago. It seems low now.
ll may seem rediculously low & years
from now. Hind sight is better than
foresight. If you have no faith in the
future of Omaha you will' not pick this
8 a bargain. It takes a ; long-headed
optimist with 150,000 to get this. . If you
can furnish this combination we would
, like to talk to you about it. Owner has
given this price for a special reason for
a lew days only.
Another "frowing-into-business lot on
- South 16th St, 2 blocks from Thompson
& Eerfden's store, at a lower price than
anything near it. This is a large lot, 108
ft. front on 16th and extending-through
to 17th St the same front. Stores would
rent well there now. Special price this
r, week. . ' v .
Another elose-ln corner, a full, city lot,
mxtt ft, with some old buildings that
answer for temporary, low income pro
ducers. Only a. half block from good
paying business property. Looks as-certain
V grow as Omaha herself. 130,000 is
a low price on this.
. The combination of these three bargains
is peculiar. As soon as one is sold th
other two are likely to be immediately
withdrawn. This is the only way we
ieould list them. Vi ' -

TJie lad, who arrived , flere withs.. his
mother from England en route - to Jbit)
his father in Omaha, was stopped owing
to. jiils feeble mental condition,.'
-Influence was brought to bear to have
the boy passed on the piea that he was
only backward and that his deportation
wodld mean the b:eaking up of the fam
ily. The case was referred tJ a medical
board, which dee'.ded tha.t the boy would
have to be deported. Senator Hitchcock
put fevers! questions to the boy and from
the answers it was decldedjthat the opln-
I'on- of the Lotted States authorities was
well made. The boy will probably leave
for his English home on Friday unless

Battle is Generally Considered Confederate Victory, Yet No Distinct Advantage
Accrued to Either Side. Federal iArmy Retains Possession of Chat
tanooga; Confederates Check Army of Cumberland From
Occupation of Southern Soil
General Thomas, Whose Stability Averted Overwhelming Defeat for the
North, Wins Brightest Laurels of Battle. For Full Accounts See
In this section The Confederate general,
Bushrod Johnson, has given us an nnforgetable
picture ot one of the most thrilling events in that
"The resolute sod impetuous charge.therush -of
our heavy columns sweeping out from the
shadow and gloom of the forest into the open
Melds flooded, with' sunlight, the glitter of arms,
the onward dash Of artillery and mounted rnn,
the retreat of the foe, the shouts of the hosts
of our army, the dust, the smoke, the noise of
fire-arms of whistling balls, of grape-shot,
and of bursting shellmade up a battle scene
of unsurpassed grandeur. Here General Hood
gave me the last order I received from him on
the field, '60 ahead and keep ahead of every
thing.' " A moment later Hood fell, severely
wounded, with a mihie ball through his thigh.
To miss reading the unbiased, unprejudiced
and complete narrative of the Battle of Chicks
mauga, when it can be obtained in superb port
folio form practically for the asking, is to deprive
yourself a knowledge of the most murderous
battle in history and the most bravely fought.
For the Battle of Chtckamauga, considering the forces engaged, really was
one of the most destructive of the Civil War. The Uaiou Army lost approxi
mately 16,000 men, and the Confederates about 18,000 whilo the personal
daring and tenacious courage displayed among the officers and privates in
the ranks of both Armies have never been excelled on any battlefield. In this
battle three Confederate Generals were killed and seven wounded; the
Federals lost Lytle, the soldier-poet, who fell at the bead of his brigade as
he strove to reform his line.
Besides the complete narrative of the Battle of Chickamauga, Section 10
also contains a vivid word picture of the
Battles on Lookout Mountain
and Missionary Ridge
This chapter in the portfolio carries the reader to the end of the Battles in
front of Chattanooga where Bragg's Army had been defeated, and from
which It had to retreat to the mountains of Georgia.
