themselves to keep pace with the marsh
of progress. The city grew and grew,
and their business became larger ilrtd
larger. The little store waa expanded to
nvet the growing demands of the but!
ness. Additional frontage on Douglas
street was secured, and more room was
added to the big store. The growth,
rapid aa It was, could hardly provide
adequate quarters for the business, and
tt was expanded until today, almost four
aires ot floor space are Included unilcr
the roof ot Hayden Brothers store.
Omabn Treat Tliem Well.
"Omaha has dealt kindly with in,"
said Jamea Hayden, In speaking of tneir,
business here. "Time also has been
lenient, and 'though we Have been rushed
t& keep pace with the growth of duf
buslntss, we have today-s.xty separate
and complete 'departments In the atore,
each well supplied with Its Individual
lift of goods."
The Immense Increase In the volume
of business during., tne, twenty-seven
years Haydcr. Brothers havo been herd
made Immediate alterations In the store
an absolute necessity. As a result, dur
ing the last few months tho store hat
been completely remodeled from the base
ment to tho fifth floor. Those who
visited the big department atore a (aw
months ago would hardly recognise it
because ot these changes.
Grocery Department Unlnrgert.
In the basement the entire space has
been given . over to groceries, meats,
hardware, candles and liquor. The rooms
art connected with wldo arches, miking
tha entire baacment practically one his
room, with broad utsles tu accommodate
the- crowds of shoppers. With the re
modeling pt the basement new .fixtures
and devices havo been Installed to make
the food departments the most satnltary
Jri the west. Heavy Bias's cases' protect
meats from pbsalble contamination tram
dust or genns. Likewise, vegetables and
irtllts are protected "by screens, while
attractive counters have 'been arranged
for tho most convenient display In cacn
of the basement departments.
Perhaps the biggest change In the' store
occurred on the first flpor, when the
partitions between th'e east room and
the middle room were practically torn
out, A njwstalrcatc, jvao' built to the
sec6nd floorTwhlle tbe'departmenta were
thrown together with broad aisles and
huge archways.
Plenty '"Siinllsht."
In tha dry goods department, the Dodge
street front was reconstructed entirely
of glass, to permit the soft north light
tin flood tha entire room, So finer facili
ties for the particular examination ot
go6ds or the matching of colors can ho
tound In the city, and tho silk depatt
ment has been especially arranged to
benefit from this change.
On the second and, third floor! the,
different department havo been ;on
r.tcted with spacious archways, continu
ous alales, and generous stairways. The
displays on both floors havo been so
arranged aa to make tne chango & .uoit
attractive one.
In remodeling the fourth floor, stock
rooms have been eliminated In the calcu
lating, the chief aim having been to pro
vide selling space. To this end the sfoc'x
room on the fourth floor was eliminated,
and the Immense stock of crockery fttvl
queentware instead .is displayed to nn
advantage there, This is ono ot the
largest, It not the l&rgost, department
of Its kind in the middle- west.
Twenty-four delivery wagora and a
smalt army ot automobiles art kept busy
throughout the day distributing the many
purchases among the-homos ot the cus
tomers. Try HnrdMVi First.
"Try Haydens First," was the motto
of Hayden Brothers when they opened
the business here. The' success of the
motto ot course depended on the sue-,
eel of the firm to please customer.
They did succeed in a great measure,
and "Try Hayden' First" has been re
tained and scattered broadcast through
the country and city, until It has !
cbme a household word.
"1 am sorry that JoseiSh Hayden hat
pot returned from his trip around th
wirld." said Manager Tom Quintan', "be

anniversaries in the h'-story of the store.

Norway Will Try to
Induce Its People to
Avoid United States
CHIUSTIAN1A. June S. The .treament
ot Norwegians at the Immigration station
at' Ulll Island, New York, has been re
ceiving criticism In Parliament. Several
menjbers of the Storthing have made
sf-ecch'c In which they cited Instance of
llltreatment of Norwegian Immigrants
der detention there tund the foreign
nunlftr naa asked pointedly what he
.intended to do about it.
The discussion arose from tho story
recently published here of a IS-year-old
coy, who was detained at Kills Island
for a whole month before he waa sent
back to Norway. It was asserted that
he' i'a kept prisoner and that only one
of . Several letters which he wrote ever
reached Its destination.
The protesting members in Parliament
did not criticise the Immigration laws ot
the Un.ltcd States, but they Insisted that
Norwegians detained under these laws
should be properly treated.
M. Thlen In answer to the interpella
tions, quoted some of the most Important
sections of the American immigration
net -and said that too often tho Nor
wegian emigrant failed to comply with
the rtKtllatlona because of Irnornnm. He
agreed. that there were cases ot exceptional ,
eeverlty and cited that of a Norwegian
wqman and her four children who -were
detained because the paper by which her
father-in-law guaranteed that the family
would not become a public charge waa
dated a year before their arrival. She
was allowed to enter while her ease
was on appeal, after her relatives had
raised JO0 ball for each child, but in the
meantime one of the children died In the
hospital through careless treatment, ac
cording to charges to the Norwegian
leiailon In Wathlngton.
The intnlster pointed out what a dif
ficult situation tho United State had to
face,- with thougand of immigrants, a
gfeat many of whom were illiterate, con
stantly pouring into Its gates. He then
agreed that the foreign office ahould get
full information about the treatment of
Norwegians at Bills Island which should
be published, with extracts from Ameri
can immigration law warning Norweg
ian ot the risk they run in attempting
to enter the United States.

American Speeds
Up British Trains
LONDON, June 6. The railroad world
hero Is watching with much Interest the
efforts of II. W, Thornton, the American
general manager ot the Great Eastern
railroad to speed up the service ot that
line. That much of the ill feeling which
greeted Ids appointment has worn away
Is indicated by the fact that he has been
appointed a member ot the general man
agers conference, the first time that
anyone not a British subject has been
elected to that organisation. Thanks to
the efforts of the new general manager,
tho towns served by the Great Eastern
aro now getting their Sunday papers
many hours sooner than In the past.
Hallway expert predict that Thornton
will have no difficulty In bettering the
time ot the express trains ot rival lines,
as tha Great.' Eastern doe not have to
surmount the same gradients aa It com
petitors. One of the curious anomalies of
British railways Is tha great difference
In average .train speeds on the various
lines. Physical limitations account for
much ot the low speed on the southern
lines, but the gradient and length ot
non-stop run on the Great Eastern will
give the American expert an excellent
chance to make some express train

the Paige has sprung from nothingness into the very
front rank of a national industry.
The public has demanded more and more Paige cars
each year. And step by step with this increasing de
mand has come the expansion of the Paige Company.
Public demand has moved us bodily from a small

VIENNA, June 6. The Austro-Hungarian
taxpayer has become gravely
alarmed over the fact that military esti
mates for the coming year are nearly
double tho army and navy expenditures
of seven years ago. From government
sources thcro have come frequent asser
tions that relations with other countries
aro most peaceful and amicable. If this
bo true, the people are wondering why
the government comes forward with nj
budget which could' not bo much greater
If tho empire was on the verge ot war.
The sum asked by tho minister of war
Is $18(5,ono,O00. The army wants $115,000,000,
whllo the navy will get along with $3fi,
000,000. The remaining $35,000,000 will be
spent on tho mtlltla and reserve forces,
fieven years ago the total budget for the
three branches of service amounted to
only $36,000,000, a sum considerably less
than Is now demanded for the army
The popular protest la that the advance
Is utterly out of proportion to the normal
increase In the nation's financial and
commcrclnl wealth, but tho most dls
Quletlng featuro Is that the present bud
get contains no extraordinary Items, bo
there Is no reason to oxpect that next
year's estimate will bring any relief.
llurtTet firnT(i Kvery Year,
At the time of tho war scares, during
the annexation of Bosnia in 190S, and
during the more recent Balkan wars, the
ministry of war took ndvantage of the
situation to procure everything that was
needed to bring tho army up to a high
state of efficiency, and enormous sums
were spent on two mobilizations. Tho
rate of spending then Inaugurated seema
to havo been kept up, and each succeed
ing budget hns been larger than the one
before. Immense sums have been put
into new guns and technical equipment
for the engineers and field officers.
