Omaha Buys Lot for New
Central Police Station
A new central police station will be
located at the northwest corner of
Fifteenth and Davenport streets, on
a site 132x132 feet, purchased by the
city council for $23,650.
Harry A. Tukey arranged the deal
for the city. Hattie L. Hoover of
California owned the property.
The city sold $100,000 police station
bonds and .Superintendent Kugel ex
pressed the belief that proceeds from
the sale of the old site at Eleventh
and Dodge streets will more than cay
for the new site, leaving the $100,000
intact for a new jail and station with

By New Rail Order
War board order prohibiting the
supplying of theatrical companies
with baggage can for carrying their
equipment la now being enforced
to the letter by the railroads. As
a result it is anticipated many of
the companlei will be forced off
the road, Many of the larger com
panies, it is said, cannot put on
I their plays unless they have the
usual quantity of scenery and scenic
' effects. In many instance! this
equipment is sufficiently large to
occupy the space in two and some
times three baggage can.'
. Some of the railroad men sug-.
gest a remedy by placing freight
can at the service of the show
companies, though the majority of
them aay that this Is impracticable,
owing to the fact that the freight
can would have to be put into the
passenger traini and because of
their not being constructed for
high speed, their use In this man

DEAR SIRS: This is to acknowledge the full cash settlement
($602.39) on my $1000.00 Fifteen Payment Life Policy No. 11188,
through your General Agent, Chas. M. Stewart. This gives me all of my
money back and $147.89 interest, besides the protection of $1000.00 to
my family during the full fifteen years.
I wish that I had taken out more insurance with your good com
pany at the time I took this policy, as I think that it is a mighty good
savings investment for a young man and if they take out a good sized
policy whenthey first begin making wages and keep it up to maturity,
they would have a great deal more money in middle life than the aver
age man. Nebraska people are proud of a company like the Bankers,
and I would advise every young man to start a similar policy that com
bines savings and insurance. I know of nothing better. I am
