International Newapaper Window Pis
play Week, which la now holding forth,
was primarily designed to demonatrate to
manufacturer of nationally advertlaed
products the desirability of newspaper
advertising and the preference of the re
tailers for that form of advertising. But
the window display movement has done
other things, too. It has awakened a re
newed tntereat'ln window display on the
port of the public.
It Is . surprising what a person ean
learn from tho display windows of
the merchants. The windows are not only
Interesting, they are instructive. An Illus
tration of this fact ean be seen In the
window display of the local branch of
The Goodyear Tire and Rubber oompany.
Rubber has alwaya been a vague, mys
terious product but the Goodyear display,
constructed In connection with the Win
dow Pisplay Week, tells the story of
rubber from collection of the sap until
It reaohee the manufactured product.
Other Interesting displays hold forth
at the four stores of the Sherman A Mo
Con n II Drug company, at the two stores
of the Tatee Prug company, Merrltt's
two stores. The Townaond Oun company,
Iloaep's Muslo . store, the Walter Q.

If local merchants continue their policy
of "hooking tip" with newspaper adver
tising they will surely Increase the value
of their displays, and "window shopping"
will have an added charm for the woman-folk.

AND WEBSTER MIX
Attorney! for Omaha Allege Street
Car Company Does Not Comply
with Court Order.
SEARS CONSIDERS THE MATTER
A spirited argument was precipi
tated before District Judge Sears,
hen City Attorneys nine and Lam
bert and Attorney J." L. Webster, for
the street railway company, went to
the mat on the iReue whether tha
company had evaded an order of the
court providing for a statement of
physical valuation of its property In
the seven-fares-for-a-quarter Injunc
" The company's statement as made
to the court contained various fig
ures and totals which applied to Its
entire lines in Omaha, Council Bluffs,
Fcuth Omaha and suburbs.
The statement, Mr. Rine declared, waa
"sn evsslon" because, he said, the order
manifestly required a statement of phy
sical valuation In Omaha, alone, where
the seven-fares-for-a-quarter I applica
ble. The statement, aa made, he de
clared, waa useless to the court.
"They Bay they do not know the valua
tion In the city of Omaha," observed Mr.
Wna, "but the petltlnn alleges the rate
fixed by the ordinance would not allow
a proper return on the capital Inveated."
Somewhere among the statsments made
by the street railway company, Mr. Rine
then deduced, wss at least one which
wast Order Chaasred.
Attorney Webster then cams back with
the argument that the stateinnt of phyat-
cal valuation, a furnished to the court.
was exactly what the court's order re
quired end what tho city attorneys had
"Tho 'city attorneys now ask thr
somethlng be Interpolated Into the order
which they did not ek In their motion
end which the court did not put in the
order,", declared Mr, Webster. "They
are now eetoned from reopening the
laaue and seeking for additional Informa
It la conceded on all hands that the
Information so far furntehed by the
street railway company haa not been
such as would clear up the aeven-fares-
Judge Sears took under advisement the
motion of the city that the company be
required to make Its statement "more
spooiflo and certain."
