Farmers Go to Wyoming
To Locate Near Douglas
Officers of the Burlington immigra
tion department are taking a party of
twenty-five Iowa and Nebraska farm
ers to Douglas, Wyo., for the purptsc
of locating them on the lands north
and west of the town.
In the locality where the Nebras
kans and Iowans are going they are
permitted to take homestead of 320
acres each, living on the same six
months of each year for a period ot
three and one-half years, and at the
end of that time they may make final
proof, having twelve acres under cul
tivation. Much of the land in the vicinity of
Douglas is within what the govern
ment has designated as a mineral
zone. That the settlers may protect
their rights and keep off oil and min
eral prospectors, the government per
mits the occupants of the land to file
for minerals, as well as for home

"My mother gave me that watch
and I have carried it with me for

JUDGES ARE NAMED
FOR SWINE SHOW
Most Mammoth Undertaking of
the Kind Ever Attempted
Opens Next Monday.
MANY STATES TO EXHIBIT
There have been hog shows and hog
shows held in the United States, but
never a hog show so truly national in
scope as the big National Swine show
heralded for Omaha October 2 to 7,
When the doors of the huge horse
barrls on the South Side are thrown
open next Monday, visitors to the
recognised greatest and most epoch
marking porcine stock exposition ever
attempted in North America will have
the opportunity of feasting their eyes
upon the sleekest, most beribboned
and purest-blooded porkers in all hog
dom. Every swine raising state in (he
union is sending its fanciest hogs to
the first annual National Swine
show; one of the noteworthy facts in
regard to the quality of the hogs en
tered here is that the mediocre and
just good animals will be conspicuous
by their absence; there will be noth
ing but the very best from their re
All Champions Here.
Practically every state in the great
corn belt will be presented by cham
pions champions that have earned
the title of champion in competition
with the cream of herds from the
country round. In this way Greek
will meet Greek in Omaha, and any
hog leaving Omaha decorated with
that significant bit of ribbon will be
a national figure in hog circles a
Considerably more than 1,000 pens
have been reserved for the assemblage
of pure-bloods. In fact, the enthusi
asm of the National Swine Growers'
association officials didn't near come
up to the demands of the show, for it
has been necessary to construct 300
more pens other than those in the
horse barns, tg take care of the en
tries. Wealth Represented.
The value of the hogs at the show
will run well into the hundreds of
thousands of dollars; some of them
it will be impossible to buy at any
price. The wealth of the breeders
who will visit the show from all parts
of the country is in the millions.
There will be many distinguished
visitors at the show, one of them to
be none other than Presdent Wilson.
The officials who have been named
to determine the National Swine
show destinies of the different breed
ers are as follows:
Poland. China Bay Davis of Maryvllle,
Mo., breed superintendent: Charles A.
Murker of Auburn. III. Judge; Thomas A.
Shattuek of Hastings, Neb., consulting
luroe-Jerseys Robert J. Evans of Chl

Demand for Seats
For the Retailers'
Concert Course Big
'1 never realized there could be
svoh a demand for seats as there has
been in the last week, or ten days,"
said L. C. Nash, one of the directors
ot the Associated Retailers concert
"It certainly upholds my claim that
the Omaha public enjoys and wants
(rood music and is willing to pay for
"The demand for seats is so great
that the committee in charge, con
sisting of George Rrandfls, Mr. Bel
den and myself, have decided that un
less all subscriptions have been re
milted for before October I, the seat
tickets will be placed on sale. This
we believe is only in fairness to the
music loving public, as well as the
Associated Retailers, who are promot
ing the course.
"We arc very anxious to make this
season one of unbounded success and
have secured as principals some of
the world s most lamous artists.
'It might be well to add that the
prices being asked for the entire sea
son, including the five numbers, arc
less than those asked lor the two
operas Carman and .11 Trovatore-
Tulsa, Okl. Just for the operas the.
prices there arc $2 to $7 per scat for
each performance, while those asked
tor the retailers here are but 4 to
$10 for the entire course. And we
must realize that Tulsa is a much
smaller place than Omaha.

Keep Plans for Week of Won
derful Windows Secret Un
til Night of Opening.
MONEY SPENT LAVISHLY
Window display men are very se
cretive creatures these days. For the
window trimmers plan to startle all
of Omaha Wednesday night when the
'Week of Wonderful Windows"
Not a word of what their windows
will contain, what the decorative
scheme will be or anything about
their precious windows can be ex
tracted from a single window trim
mer. All day Wednesday the windows of
the big downtown retail stores will
be curtained while the store artists
summon all their skill, their knowl
wonderfully decorated windows Oma
ha ever saw. At 7 o'clock the shades
will be drawn aside and the dazzling
array unfolded to the public gaze.
Intense Rivalry Prevails.
Intense rivalry prevails among the
disnlav men of the different stores
to see "which one can prepare the most
attractive, beautiful and original
showing. As a result every man is
putting forth his very best effort and
from an artistic standpoint the Oma
ha windows to be opened to the view
of the public Wednesday night will
be the equal of any ever shown in
the United States.
Thousands of dollars will be spent
by the retailers on this event.
The postoffice band will parade the
downtown streets starting at 7
o'clock, the hour when the shades
will be drawn, and the siren whistle
will blow to announce the opening.
Wants Big Damages
For Being Placed
On Wrong Train
.Suffering with pneumonia, anxious
to leave El Paso, Tex., and return to
her home in Omaha, Helen L. Cattin
and her mother, Maude A. Cattin,
were placed on board a train going in
the opposite direction, toward Cali
fornia, and suffered Injuries from
which they will never recover, ac
cording to a petition just filed in dis
trict court here.
Helen, a girl of 14, asks the El Paso
& Southwestern railway, the Burling
ton, the Pullman company and Re
ceiver Dickinson of the Rock Island
to pay $25,000 damages.
Miss Cattin was carried from the
hotel to the station in an ambulance
on a stretcher, she alleges, and after
being placed on the California train
was refused permission to leave at
Columbus. N. M.. bv trainmen, be-
causc-of the fear of another Mexican
uoiisine. Thev were unloaded in the
cold at Hachita, N. M., 175 miles from
hi Paso, and there suttered serious
exposure, they assert.
Key to the Situation The Bee
Jesse Talbert, negro painter and
papcrhanger, living at 806 North
Twenty-third street, chased his wife
half a block, and when he overtook
her at Twenty-third street and Cum
ing, murdered her In view of hun
dreds of passersby, at 7 o'clock last
night. He struck her over the head
with a base ball bat, crushing her
skull, and when she fell, he wung
again and again, breaking the bones
m her body at each blow.
He then escaped, but in a tew min
utes appeared at police headquarters,
where lie surrendered himself to
Captain M. F, Dempsey. (
ne sain nis sister-in-iaw, Airs, aiai
tie Cook, started the trouble by stab
bing him several times in the abdo
men. He was bleeding profusely
when examined by surgeons.
Mrs. Cook said Talbert came home
"with a grouch on" and commenced
to auarrcl. The Quarrel led to blows
and the killing followed.
City to Move Against
Slow Paving Contractors
The city council passed an ordi
nance which empowers the city en
gineer to take over public improve
ments in cases where the contractors
do not live up to the time agreement
as stipulated in contracts. The city
has experienced considerable difficulty
this year with dilatory contractor.
