Body of Lieutenant
Sill Is Buried with
Full Military Honors
FORT DODGE, la., May 17, (Special.)
Lieutenant Richard Hill, of tho United
States naval service, who took his life
at Annapolis last week, was burled here
today after ' Impressive funeral services.
One of tho ministers was Rev. Perelval
Hughett pastor of the First Congre
gational church at Detroit, Mich., a
family friend who came from New York
City when he received the sad news.
The young man was burled In full uni
form and across the coffin was draped
the country's flag. On the flag was the
sword the deceased naval officer had car
rled. At the Naval academy at Apnap
olls a few days ago, a full military fu
neral was observed. These honors are
accorded only to officers who die with
their names free from blemish In the ser
vice of their country and the general con
clusion regarding the manner of the
your.c lieutenant's death, Is that It was
accidental or that breaking health which
had made him morbid lately, deranged
his mind so that he committed the deed.
A letter from Captain J. H. Gibbons,
superintendent of the naval academy, to
the deceased young man's mother. Is tilled
with high tribute to him as concerns his
moral Integrity and the Quality of his
"In view of all the circumstances con

the Superb Grade of
Work Turned Out
California prices on expert cleanlm
and dyeing work aro vastly higher that.
Dreshers' Omaha prices and Dreshers
are able to prove it.
Here but a few days ago a society
lady whoso name Is authoritative, In the
"West Fomam" district, drove up to
Dresher Brothers Cleaning and Dyeing
establishment at 221-2213 Farnam St.,
with package ofter package of gowns
dresses, etc., and Immediately arranged
to have them cleaned and generally re

XSUlComla prices are too high for
me," she said, "'and I didn't proposeto
be robbed. These gowns and wraps
would haVe come In mighty handy, ,at
tho Pacific Coast festivities I have jost
left but I couldn't wear them after
they had become soiled and J stmpiy
wouldn't have them cleaned out there
becauso Uipso western cleaning estab
lishment wanted to fairly rob me. So
I brought them home to be cleaned and
here you are!"
Al. Dresher upon questioning the lady
found that California .Cleaners, whll
turning out excellent work, charged p
to clean the Identical suit that had been
cleaned at Dreshers for $1-75. Tho suit
In question Is a plain tailored affair. Then
It was found that a $f charge had been
made in California on gowns and dresses
that are cleaned daily at the Dreshot
establishment for $2.
The California work was admittedly
good, but not a whit better than the
work done dally at Dresher's $57,000
Omaha plant. But the Callfornlans had
learned the art of oharRlng prices In ad
dition to tho art of cleaning.
So remember, fellow Omahans, Dreshers
aro cleaning, dyeing, pressing, repairing
and remodeling men's and women's gar
ments at the very lowest prices con
sistent with good business. In fact,
every charge made here should be a
greater charge if comparisons with thosa
of other cities have any bearing en the
