A will was left by the deceased giving

Tho widow objected again and he was
reinstated and now she has filed another
objection to his appointment and asks
that Frank H. Marncll, a disinterested
party, be named under the law, ns she
has elected to take her share of the s
tate under the law rather than under
the will, which gave her a specified sum.
Tho estate Is valued at something near
fl.OOO.OOO and there arc plenty of attorneys
on each side to keep the court nnd the
heirs nil from suffering cnnul.

the deceased, now comes Into court and

tho widow and a number of others to como
Into court and say, If they know or havo
any Idea, where this paper Is and why It
Is kept away from him. There nro n
host of other heirs, who have been here
nnd retained attorneys to look otter their
Interests und try to get a share of the

Tho deceased was exceedingly eccentric
and had a peculiar way of making deed
and conveyance? and holding the same to
be delivered after his death, and some
of the papers were not found among his
effects and none of the heirs will bellevo
he changed his mind and destroyed them,
because none of them were recorded, hut
held by him, after he issued them, to be
delivered, as ho told them, after his death.

Story f the Alamito Sanitary Dairy Past, Present and Future
Alamito s History
Alamito s New Machinery
The Alamito Sanitary Dairy is the moist successful concern of
Its kind In Omaha and Its plant, equipment nnd policy nro tho Inspiration
of llko organizations In Innumerable western cities. It has been in exist
ence nine years, being the result ot the consolidation of the Interests of
Schwagor Bros., Clinton H. Drlggs and V. Farnam Smith, all at thitt tlmo
producers of only high priced milk and cream. In tho production and dls
' trlbution of high priced dairy products, they woro pioneers and are still
distributers of tho only certified brands of milk sold In this community.
The fact that this concern lias persistently maintained this policy of dealing
only in the best grado of dairy products has won and held the confidence
and good will of tho public, gradually adding to Its volume of business until
, it ha3 outgrown Its present location.
Alamito s New Officers
' v ...
Wlien it was decided to erect a new plant and make a big stride
forward, additional capital was needed. Tho company was then reorgan
ized, tho older employes were offored Ptock In tho now concern, and
many eageVly purchased. Some prominent business men, customers and
producers also purchased stock and, with tho employes holding a heavy
financial interest In tho Institution, a co-operatlvo company is tho actual
result. Tho employe now hns the Interest of tho public at heart tho pub
lic's completo satisfaction Is his greatest satisfaction and tho result Is, that
Alamito customers are now securing better service and more satisfactory
products than ever before in the history of this concorn. Stock subscrip
tions are no longer sought Tho necessary cash has been acquired and
unless some one could be of unusual value to the concern, in one way or
another, over and above tho stock consideration, ho would not bo consid
ered. It Is this class only that would still be considered for small stock
subscription. It was a great move when tho Alamito employee came Into
the firm. If you wero a customer before this change occurred and woro
not wholly satisfied, we suggest that you tolephono us to begin serving you
again. You will be well pleased this time, wo are sure.
Alamitos New Building
The architect of the new building to be erected during this year
has Instructions that, when carried out, will give Omaha a dairy plant
that "will have no equal In such cities as Denver, Minneapolis, St. Paul,
Kansas City and St. Louis. It will bo large, bright and airy. Conforming
to the modern IdetiB of sanitation, the structuro will bo concrete of course
fireproof with Immense window space, tiled floors and walls. It will be'
of such construction that tho entire plant, walls, celling and floors, may
be scoured daily with boiling water. Tho new plant and stables will coBt,
t without machinery, in the neighborhood of 7G,000. This, then, In a men-
i sure is what tho Alamito Dairy Is doing to give Omaha a safe, pure milk
Alamito in Comparison With Other Cities
Many proprietors of large dairy interests in cities much larger
than Omaha have come to this city to study the economical and sanitary
methods pursued In this plant. In many cities, the retail price of milk in
nine cents per quart. The Alamito price is elghtNcents for 1U pasteurized
product. When a concerted effort was mado some time ago by the milk
Interests of Omaha to arbitrarily force tho rotall price to nine cents in
this city the Alamito quickly repondod with the announcement that Its
retail price would remain at eight cents and thus effectively .broke tno
movo to lncroaso tho price. The Alamlto's completo plant and well drilled
organization make It possible to retail at eight cents a product that In
superior to that sold for more money In other cities and enables it to de
liver tho best, safest, purest and cleanest milk in Omaha at this price,
Alamito's Interests Are Yours
The broad safegards mentioned above aro resorted to tho
enormous investment In new plant and machinery Is mado and U for what
purpose? To glvo you and every citizen of this community a milk supply
that Is absolutely free from contamination of evory description, a product
that is as safe for the babo in arms as its mother's own milk. When a
concern resorts to the extremes, in safeguarding Its products, to which tho
Alamito goes, then its Interests become your interests. To mako such a
plant a success requires the co-operation of every citizen to maintain tho
high standard and low prices now In effect. Will you do your part by plac
ing your order, not next month or next week, but now?
In a modern sanitary dairy tho mechanical equipment plays
nn Important part. .It must bo perfect to lnsuro propor results. At tho
same tlmo, It must bo economical in operation. Already some of tho new
machinery that can bo removed to tho new building has been put Into use.
With economy nnd efficiency as tho goal, tho plans call for a separate
motor for driving each machine This obviates tho necessity of operating
tho1 entire plant for doing only a certain part of tho work. Considerable
Is saved this way and u low prlco for Belling the milk Is maintained. No
Ico will bo iiBed anywhoro within the buildings. InBtoud, a huge modern
refrigerating plant will bo opornted which will maintain a uniform low
temperature nt any degreo desired, thuB keeping the products In a most
wholesome stnto nt all times. A wonderful bottling ani capping machlno
will soon bo In service. It is ono of the very few in uso In this country, and
throuBh its oporatlon bottles are automatically filled and capped. Work
man's hands noyer oven touch tho bottles throughout the entire operation.
Alamito's Problems
Alamito s Effort to Plz ase
Throughout tho country the milk business is in its infancy.
Universities and endowed Institutions havo been working out Its problems
for years. Milk Is tho most dollcato and easily contaminated food product
known. Tho caro It receives must be Infinite Too great precaution to
keep It pure and wholesomo cannot bo tnken. Alamito resorts to every
modern proven advance tho Industry knows. No effort is relaxed that will
send It to you In a hotter state. Yet, with this ns an established fact, peo
ple ore frequently more caroless about tho sourco of milk supply a food
that goes Into and Is taken up by tho human system than they are' about
nn article for wear or adornment. Such conditions aro true, thouRh, when
given thought, It Is hard to bollovo. Do you know how your milk supply
is handled? Do you know whether the Innocent looking bottle of milk you
find on your porch was filled by Borne carelcsH milk dealer who submerged
his dirty hand and arm as well as tho bottle Into a vat of milk in the fill
ing operation? If you uso Alamito milk you know this has not occurred.
Kor tho convenience of those desiring to add to or change tholr, morning
order Alamito is new remaining open until 9:30 P. M.
Alamito's Message To You
Wo need your co-operation. Wo need the co-operation of every
loyal citizen who has his clty'B Vrogress nt heart and 1h proud In seeing
his homo town nnd Its Industries go forward. It is essential that you ap
preciate some of tho bigger problems with which this business Is con
fronted. Wo havo tried to touch upon some of them here and to outline
our policy In overcoming them. Space In this newspaper was purchased
to bring to your attention these conditions and to win your good will by
a frank and honest discussion of the subject. We have nothing to hide and
We would be pleased to ko further Into detail and show those Interested
exactly how overy detail Is handled. Wo want your good will and loyalty
but wo want you to feci porfectly sure that Alamito deserves It. Thats why
we havo told you the Ins and outs of our business In a manner that Is clear
to ono unfamiliar with such an Industry. May wo havo your support?
Alamitos Products
Tho business is mainly the pasteurizing and distribution pf
milk. However, wo handle several brands of this product. The main ono
is "Alamito Perfect Pasteurized Milk" delivered at 8 cents per quart
Then wo have "Alamito Jersey Milk" or "Special" milk as It Is sometimes
called. This Is high grade milk to which 1b added a portion of rich cream
bringing It far abovo tho standard, making it similar to Jersey milk and
giving It a higher buttor fat percentage than as It comes from the cow.
This retulls at ten cents per quart. This concern Is also the distributing
agency for tho two certified brands, "Frlesland" nnd "Arwoo'd." Alamito
docs not produce these two brands but merely receives them, bottled, and
delivers them to the consumer. Then there la whipped cream, butter,
cream checso and cottage cheese, Fer-rall-lac and buttermilk. Any of these
products will bo delivered to any homo In Omaha, South Omaha, Council
n luffs or Dundee by a roquest to any Alamito driver or a phone call to the
office, Douglas 411. A largo hotel and restaurant trade Is enjoyed, most
of these places In Omaha buying from Alamito.
