says: "The purpose of the trade union
is to raise the standard of living.
What about the saloon? Is there a
man who will dare to say that there is
any influence from the saloon except
to lower this standard and make men
' less manly and women less womanly?
I don't know a solitary principle for
which the labor movement stands but
that the saloon is on the other side of
the question." ,

Election Returns Tuesday.
Election returns over a direct wire
will be afforded on the South Side
on the night of the election, due to
the initiative of local business men.
Thirty-three firms contributed to a
collection fund which will pay for
the trouble to the Western Union
Telegraph company, and the results
of the election, as soon as the returns
come in will be flashed on a screen
at Twenty-fourth and 'M streets, op

business organizations and with his
brothers, maintained for years, a large
and exclusive retail jewelry store.

ness, he took a great part in the
charitable work of the city and was

following an accident while driving
in Omaha; few months before her
husband noved from the city.

inent fraternity men of the city. He
was an Elk, Scottish Rite Mason and
an Odd Fellow. In the latter or

arch of the state.
Surviving him are a brother, Moritz

Omaha experienced the quietest
Hallowe'en in a decade last night.
Though hundreds of boys and
young men vere about, playing mis
chievous pranks, acts of vandalism
were rare, and no one was hurt.
In anticipation of trouble, Police
Commissioner Kugel had the entire
police department working between
the hours of 5 and 12 o'clock, riiid
night, instead of working the officers
in the usual three eight-hour shifts.
In addition to the police, half a score
of volunteer motorcyclists were
sworn in as special police, and fire
men also acted as guardians of the

Hair that loses its color and luster,
or when it fades, turns gray, dull and
lifeless, is caused by a lack of sulphur
in the hair. Our grandmother made

Sage and Sulphur Compound," which
darkens the hair so naturally, so ev

has been applied. You just dampen
a sponge or soft brush with it and
draw this through your hair, taking
one small strand at a time. By morn

According to Chief Dunn, the cus

character on Hallowe'en is gradually
wearing itself out. As late as five
years ago, however, Hallowe'en was
regarded as an appropriate occasion

some Omaha neighborhoods, and the
following daybreak usually found tele
i graph poles decorated with gates,
wagons and occasionally a poor half
hung dumb animal of some kind.
Stretching wires across sidewalks
and streets, throwing bricks and

touch of arson to spice the evening of

as exciting pleasure by the youth of
