the creation of deficits for such purposes,

' Lamger lasfen f Reveasje,
Tha Board of Education find Itself up
against 'the 'proposition of providing1 a
larger source -of Income to keep up with
Its ever-Increasing expense. This year
it has 'exhausted . Its limit of tax levy,
taxing at the maximum rata of SO mills,
for the first time since the old law be
came operative. . But yet. It finds need
for larger resources. So a bill will be
presented at Lincoln authorising an ex
pansion of this levy rate maximum to to
Whether the legislature will regard the
proposition with favor, or not, many men
In Omaha do not. The need for larger
resources Is admitted, but there are those
who believe that the beat provision ' fgr
It would be an adequate Increase . In
Itwperty valuations for the purposes of
taxation. Property values steadily have
been raised In tha last few years, but
riot enough, according to some who give
good deal of attention to such matters.
That Is. the contention follows that val
uations for taxation are not commensu
rate with the valuations for selling pur
poses, or with actual prices constantly
being obtained for property, especially
high-priced downtown property.
Tales sal Llceaws.
The tax collections for tha last school
yesr amounted to S602.M2. That Is, of
course, tha largest, single source of reve
nue for .the schools and It Is not enough
to pay tha salaries of teachers, . Janitors
and others In th employ of the board, to
say nothing of meeting other contin
gencies. Next In 'tha Item of revenue comes
saloon license money, approilmstely V
CO a year, or 11,000 for every saloon.
Here again there la. In the mlnda of
some, a chance for an Increase. The sa
loon llcenae Is the seme today as It was
many years ago, although the number of
aloona Is gradually decreasing. In other
words, every expense Item the . Board of
Eduratlon has to mt has gone tip
teachers' salaries, janitors' wages, clerk
hire, fixtures, equipment; fuel the coat
of everything. In fact, has advanced. But
the price of the saloon license remains the
Now, then, while It may be regarded as
a delicate proposition, the question arises.
why not boost the amount of each sa
loon's contribution to the support of the
puhllo schools? Oh, but someone Imme
diately make a wry face and exclaims.
"We hate the very Idea of educating our
Innocent little children from aaloon
money." But you are' doing It and are
likely to continue doing It for an Indefinite
time: at least, you are making no pro-
vlalon for not doing it.
Way Mot Adeaaatef
Then, tha question comes. If , the saloons
are to pay toward the amp port of the
schools, why not have them pay an ade
quate sum? Or. is It any worse to accept
tl.CM from each "saloon than to accept
only $1,000 for th noble cause of educa
Tes, there Is some quiet, oh,' very very
quiet talk, of proposing to double, or at
lea&t. Increase, the assessment on the
saloons. Although, perhaps It ought to be
stated, sunn talk has not as yet been
heard within the circles of the Board ot
Omaha Italians to
Send Funds to Help
Victims of Quake
Omaha Italians have started to raise a
fund for the relief of their stricken coun
trymen who are suffering from th ef
fects of the recent earthquake. Antonio
Venuto, Italian consular agent; Sebastian
Palerno and Inuls J. Plattl sent the fol
lowing telegram to Consular Agent
a Vella at Denver: v
"Upon behalf - of th Omaha Italian
colony, we desire to extend our sympa
thies to our unfortunate brothers across
tha sea, who wera visited by tha terrible
earthquake which carried death and de
struction In its wake. Advlsa us If w
can be of assistance." .
The reply ' from Da Vella came In due
Mm by wire:
"The noble sentiments expressed by you
confirm once more the high and lofty
principles of your colony. I suggest that
our countrymen unite and raise funds to
succor the' victims, who will certainly
appreciate your aid."
Venuto and Salerno started at once to
solicit In the city and had raised over
1100 by noon. They expect to raise II.OdO
or mora for the relief work.

On the floor was a strange looking ob
ject, over which a white cloth had been
laid. Hogan thrust hi hand beneath the
cloth. He felt warm flesh. He rushed
outside the door ,
"Great Ood, boya," he cried, "there's
been murder done here!"
At this point th scene changed from
tragedy to burlesque, for when the trio
removed the cloth from tha uncanny look
ing object on the floor two freshly killed
and dressed chickens which Hans had
got, no one knows where, were found.

Let Us Explain the hole
Plan Once More
' The idea originated with three things hi mind: First To take the sting out of
Christmas giving by having some ready cash for the holidays. Second To teach tha
children the habit of saving by having fhem come to the bank each week a habit that
will soon become a religion if started in their younger days, and one that Is hard to es
tablish if you watt too long. Third To more easily acquire a competence for yourself
an Ideal "never-miss-the-money" way . to get an "insurance payment" together each year
for yourself or wife. These are the main roots of the plan with a thousand beneficial
branches. Think it over!
- ' i i
The simplicity of the Idea is most appealing. Your deposit the first week Is Two
Cents or Five Cents whichever class you choose. Each, member gets a Membership
Card, showing the amount payable each week. The second week you pay two cents or
five cents more as shown in the space on the left and so on up. You can make your
deposit. any day during the week, or you may pay three or (four weeks at a time..

TWO CLASSES BELOW
Build Your Pennies Into Dollars, in the Year 1915
This unique and easy plan offers' assistance to everybody.
You'll hardly miss the weekly payments, and when next Christ
mas rolls around you'll be well supplied with cash to buy your
gifts, or to use for any other purpose, such as taxes, insurance,
etc. In many of the large offices the entire force has joined letting the office
boy take all the deposits to the bank in one trip each week. Better become a mem
