Work for Appraisal ;
The appraisal -committee of the
Omaha Real Estate board finds itself
increasingly called . upon for ap
praisals. The past week a real estate
firm of Wisconsin engaged the serv
ices of the tommittee, preferring to
pay for an expert appraisal rather
than to take for nothing the hit and
miss opinion of min who have not
given the property careful considera
In this connection one of the dis
cussions that will come before the
Real Estate board in the near future
is "what constitutes real estate val
ues?" The bearing of location, char
acter of property, the rental value, di
rection of the city's growth, public
conveniences, character of improve
ments and a number of other factors
enter into the scientific valuation of a
piece of real estate.
Many men will base their opinion
on some one or two of a score of
factors that gd to make a valuation,
whil those who give scientific in
vestigation will attempt to consider
the value of all the conditions. It is
because of its unscientific appraise
ment under Judicial proceedings, as,
for example, sheriff's sales or partition
or referee's sales.

Musical Soldiers Swell Mess Fund
By Singing at Nebraska State Fair
There are five voiceless but happy
"Llttls Tommy Tuckers' tip at the
armory. Armed with $19.55 and fifty
Bees in which there was s story tell
ing how they had collected this sum
to take them to the fair by sinning
at the Union station Wednesday, the
five boarded s train, for Lincoln.
They returned minus their voices.
but with the fat sum ot $132.
"And, we saw everything st the
fair, too," horsely whispered Corpo
ral Mevens, manager of the tilth
machine gun quintet. "We sang on
the train, we sang for our entrance
to the grounds, we sang for our din
ner and supper", - v ,.
As soon as the train moved out of
the station the singers raised, their
voices. At once applause began
"Who are you? Where are you
going?" was put to the boys from all
sides. For answer they passed around
copies of The Bee, which toM the
story, while they continued singing.
Coins rained into the hat and the ap
plause increased. . -"
They were invited into other
coaches, where they, reaped a rich
harvest. 4 When they reached Lin
coin their treasury Contained $40.
At the fair they simply "woke them
up,", as one of them expressed it.
When they began to sing they passed
Bees out to the crowd. Alt this was
a new stunt for Lincoln and the jolly
fair crowds gave the singing soldiers
a big welcome. After s happy day
the boys returned hoarse as crows,
but with about seven times as much
money as they had on leaving. When
they recover their voices , they will
sing in Omaha for the company fund.
Twenty-six hospital ,, apprentices

twelve new cooks, due to the efforts
of the Omaha recruiting station last
week. Practically all of the newspa

nated space to the call for cooks and
bakers sent out by the Omaha station
and in one week the above number
applied. - , , i
An extensive knowledge of cooking

enlist as a cook in the navy. At the

tific cooking school is maintained and
anyone wishing to learn to cook can
