KEPT UNDER HAT
AT PRESS MEET
Hammond and Howard at
Gathering of Editors, But Do
Not Come Out Openly and
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln. Feb. 24. fSDecial.1) If
there were any senatorial or other
political boomlets turned loose dur
ing the session of the State Press
association, they were very neatly
camouflaged by their owners, and very
little ot a political nature was devel
The two men who were most in the
; limelight, of course, were Ross Ham
imond and Edgar Howard. Hammond
is suspected of having leanings toward
the republican nomination for the
United States senate, while Howard
has gone even farther than that and
has proclaimed that he has democratic
designs on the same office.
Just Hinted at Something.
The nearest that either of the men
came to hinting in public that their
hearts beat in unison, but with re
verse action, was first given by Ham
mond when at the banquet Thursday
evening, in his talk on his trip to
the trenches in France, he said that
he "hoped at some time to have the
opportunity of serving his country
in a more important capacity than
visiting the battle fields." Outside of
that, if Hammond said anything indi
cating that he would like to get into
the contest for the nomination, it
was purely personal and under very
However, Howard was not so
backward. He is known to have
said to friends at times that he was
a candidate for the democratic
nomination and he even went so far
as to make the prophesy that he was
not only going to land the nomina
tion, but the election as well.
Out at Farmer Meetings,
non Howard has been out speaking
at meetings of the farmers and the
nonpartisan league. He has spoken
when the wind was blowing a 60-mile
clip with the thermometer flittering
around the below zero point, but on
every occasion the wind and the
thermometer never scored against
the eloquence of the lieutenant gov
ernor. Many of the boys would like to
see Clerk Perkins of the Aurora Re
publican get into the race for the re
publican nomination for congress, or
for governor. Ho.wever Perkins is
not making any noise that sounds
like running for ofSce. No one for
a moment doubts his ability or run
ning capacity. What he will do later
depends upon how fiercly he is at
tacked by the political bug and the
extent of the inoculation.

Objection to Raise on
(From a. Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 24. (Special.) That
insurance rates on dwelling houses !
are being boosted in Lincoln contrary
to law, is the charge made by Henry
M. Leavitt in a letter to the attorney
general. He alleges that the com
panies have entered into a combina
tion to boost the rates and he wants
the state to make an investigation.
In his letter to the attorney-general's
office Mr. Leavill charges that
the insurance inspector of Omaha has
notified him that he would have to
raise the rate from 26 to 32 cents
He calls the attention of the deputy
attorney-general, to whom the letter
was written, that the insurance com
missioner of Wisconsin had notified
the companies of that state that they
could not raise rates, and hopes that
the same order may be put in effect

Eklund Tells Theosophical
Society Concerning Dreams
In an address on "Dream and Pre
monitions, by J. T. Eklund before the
Theosophical society Sunday night
he said that modern psychology has
dev6ted itself most industriously to
explain one phase of dreams, which
are cuased by impressions made on
the physical senses, or by the desires
of the waking consciousness. This
class of dreams are wholly mechani
cal, lacking in coherence and rational
ity, ihey are simply the revifvi-
fied and disconnected mental images,
leading their aimless dance m the
The other class of dreams of which
modern psychology can give no con
vincing explanation, are those which
are really memories of experiences
gained on the astral plane during
sleep, when the ego slips out of the
hpysical body and is acting in the

how much dandruff you may have.
You will find, too. that all itchine

Shafer Company Among Leaders
In Manufacturing Novelties
Do you know that Omaha has one
of the biggest concerns in the country
manufacturing advertising specialties,
calendars, cloth, leather, celluloid,
wood and metal specialties? That is
the M. E. Shafer company at Seven
teenth and Webster streets, where tlie
company recently established its
handsome new home.
Do you know that this company
lias grown from an insignificant be
ginning until it has assumed immense
proportions and that it employs a full
platoon of salesmen , besides a very
large working force in the plant and
iin the office?
A very large percentage of the ad
vertising novelties you see anywhere
around the business section or in the
homes of Omaha, throughout. Ne
braska, and in many of the adjoining
states, are manufactured and put out
by the M. F. Shafer company of
Omaha. When you see an advertising
ruler, blotter, leather purse, letter
case, tobacco pouch, broom holder,
paper weight, calendar or any one of
a thousand little advertising novelties
stuck around in conspicuous places in
Omaha, inquire of someone whether
the M. F. Shafer company made it.
You will find in the vast majority of
cases that this Omaha concern is the
one which turned it out.
Do you know that not many years
ago this company was not in existence
at all? Do you know that not many
years ago M. F. Shafer was a small
hoy puttering around the mud of the
Ohio river, with big ideas buzzing in
his head? Do you know that a few
