THE FIRST ORGANIZATION OF ITS
KIND IN THE UNITED STATES
Had we wished to, we could have
come to this city and organized s com
pany of $100,000 . 00 capital and never
solicited more than fifteen or twenty peo
ple, who are familiar with our develop
ment work in the west We did not want
to do this. We wanted a "People's Company"-
Company made up of the small
salaried people, the good salaried people
and the professional people of the city of
Omaha, backed solely by this class In
stead of the big moneyed interests, as
would have been the case had we taken
the route of organising a stock company
for the purpose of farming on a large
Now, then, many, many people have
responded. Dozens more than wo an
ticipated would respond, within the few
short days we have now been running.
Tho big gun was fired the target was
struck square in the center. "The People"
have responded and have clearly shown
us that this was the opportunity they
had been waiting for. Our first tracts are
well nigh sold out and we are today start
ing out surveyors on other tracts right
closely adjacent to the same towns and
'cities. Our Association has already passed
that mark which Insures success.
However, the larger the Association be
comes, the stronger it will be, and we
therefore request others to come and join
us in this, the greatest wage-earner-i' op
portunity of the present day. An op
portunity to become the owner of a small
farm that will work for you and that will
take care of you in your declining years.
We farm the farm for you we make the
farm help to pay for itself we give you
two-fifths of all receipts derived from its
tillage right from the very first year.,
You do not have t watt four or five years,
as la the case with orange tracts or fruit
tracts of various kinds, , but it Is a real
God's own Nebraska, farming proposition.
A proposition right here within your own
state; a proposition that will pay for It
self In full, give you back every dollar
you have paid in, together with a nice
little dividend check, because, within
three years at the longest, and, in many
instances you will find that, two years will
accomplish all of this. Only $25 to $35
down and only $5 and $6 a month In fu
ture payments gets you one of these
tracts. The number Is limited in which
we are guaranteeing to farm your tract
for you this year. Act today and
gpt In on the 1917 crop Potato, Judging
from all angles and ail evidence to be ob
tained, will be higher next year than they
are this year, and any good housewife
will bear us out in the assertion that they
are high enough this year.

our display, at the corner of 16th and
Howard streets, opposite the Audlltorium,
telephone us. Our phone number is "Doug

TOLL OF TENEMENT
DISASTER IS TEN
Twenty-One Injured and Twenty-Four
Missing1 as Result
of Chicago fire.
NOW SEARCHING THE RUINS
Chicago, Feb. 3. While more than
100 men worked tonight over the
smouldering ice-covered ruins of the
West Side tenement house here, which
was wrecked by an explosion here to
day, these results had been estab
lished: The known dead numbered
ten, injured, twenty-one; missing,
twenty-four, and the rescued, unin
The tenement contained at the time
of the explosion sleeping men, women
and children variously estimated a.t
between eighty and ninety.
Twenty-four hours more at least,
according to Fire Marshal O'Conner,
would be necessary to clear away the
mass of debris and ice in ( order to
fully determine whether there are
others in the ruins. Late today fire
men said they heard moaning under
portions of the ruins and as a result
five persons were taken from the spot
It is believed there are about a dozen
others beneath the mass of jce and
charred timbers and twisted iron. The
intense cold 10 degrees below zero
retarded the firemen and the streams
turned on the burning tenement
turned to ice almost as sooli as the
The explosion is believed to have
been caused by a leaking gas main,
the gas fm .lly reaching a hall light.
Long after the three-story brick build
ing had fallen a pillar of fire stood up
from the ruins, indicating a flowof
gas, and it was not until hours later
that this could be stopped. Even
after the spectacular pillar of fire had
been overcome escaping gas made the
fire difficult to suppress sufficiently to
permit search of the ruins and by the
time burning gas had been overcome
ice had formed so thick that the work
of search was retarded.
Most of the rescued soon after the
explosion sustained frozen hands or
feet, as all were in scant attired

Omaha University4 Drops,
Close Game to Blair Five
The University of Omaha basket
ball squad lost to Dana college of
Blair yesterday by a score of 17 to16.
The game was played on the Dana
gymnasium floor. Handicapped by a
lead of eight points in the first ten
minutes of play, the Omaha men com
pleted the first half with a revelation
of speed and accuracy. A miscalled
foul placed the scor at 10 to 11 in
Dana s favor. .
The second half was a dpaw, o to 6.
The fighting spirit of Ernst and Botts
was one of the .outstanding features
of the game.
Coach De Lamatre is highly elated
over the plucky showing of his men.

London Shipping Companies
Are All Making Big Money
(Correapondeno. of The Aatatd PreaQ.)
London, Jan. IS. In reckoning ex
cess profits which the shipping com
oanies will have to hand over to the
government the shipping paper Fair
Play takes the amount set aside by
thirty companies 23 pounds 4 shill
ings per ton gross and gives a total
of 64,000,000 as the contribution
from 200,000,000 pounds of steam ship
ping owned in this country.
"This would indicate," says the pa
per, "that the total profits of shipping
companies exceeded the datum line
by about 91,500,000, equal to a divi
dend of nearly 50 per cent on the pre
war value of the 200,000,000 pounds. ,
But shipowners retain ontv abont
17,500,000 of this profit, out of which
tbey have to set aside sufficient to
cover the extra cost of building and
repairs, which is now at a hugely in
flated level." . ,

Berlin, Jan. 15. Enforced saving

Of- this sum, something like 500,000
marks has been withdrawn from the
savings banks bv the workers, a third
of whom have been able to convince
the authorities that they need the
money for legitimate purposes.
