Prize Winning Essay.
The essay of Miss Dorothy Me
lotz, attending Benson school, which
was awarded first prize of $25:
"'Be it ever so humble, there's no
place like home.' 'Home' is the big
gest word in all this world. It should
be a place of rest and refuge and
the first step in making it so is to
own tlie home. In the first place, you
are preparing for your family's wel
fare in buying your home. You keep
the interest of the children in the
home, for the family will work to
gether to own and improve it.
"You influence your family morally
by chosing the best locality for a
home, which is not always done for
a rented house. You prepare for their
future, and in case of your death you
are still keeping the family toge'her
and preventing the mother from leav
ing her home to work. You also
prepare for your old age.
"In the second place, you co-operate
with your city, for after the home
is your own, you improve it and make
it a beautiful place. This influences
the neighbors, and so your city be
comes cleaner, thriftier and more
"In the third place, you are aiding
your country, for it is easier to save
money if you have no rent to pay and
there never was a time when we could
put our money to such good use -s
now in loaning it to Uncle Sam. On
the installment plan, a house can be
bought almost as easy as rented.
"In the fourth place, you geb more
happiness out of life, for a well kept
home influences your mind; it gives
you the feeling oL independence and
freedom; it gives you an assured feel
ing as to the future and it makes you
feel that you are somewhat of a suc
cess. "An investment in a home within
your means is an investment you will
never regret. Once an 'owner' al
ways an 'owner.'"
3,000 Essays Submitted.
Byron R. Hastings, chairman of
the committee on awarding prizes to
the school children in the contest,
states that more than 3,000 essays
wre turned in, and that the thought
expressed by the children on "Why
You Should Own Your Home" was
wonderful, and the different real
estate men get excellent ideas from
hundreds of these essays that will
help them in selling homes.
The committed would like to have
awarded prizes to probably 90 per
cent of these contestants, as the
thought expressed shows that consid
erable time was put in by the differ
ent children, and while $100 was the
original amount to give, the Real Es
tate board at the request of this
committee raised it to $150. The
Omaha schools are surely doing
splendid work not only in encourag
ing children to write essays in this
contest, but in the thrift stamp essays
as well.

Philadelphia Has Raised More
Than Enough to Care
for Various Ac
tivities. Philadelphia, July 4. This city's
war chest has been filled to overflow
ing. The war chest plan was insti
tuted by a few leading bankers here,
who inaugurated an intensive cam
paign for a fund of $20,000,000. The
campaign, while officialy ended, is
still getting belated results. It netted
not only the $20,000,000 asked for, but
a substantial amount besides.
The fund, through the agency of
various benevolent societies, will be
spent in ministering to the wants of
the soldiers and sailors, who are en
gaged in actual warfare, and for the
lelief of the many women and chil
dren in foreign countries, who have
been made to feel the bitter sting of
the titanic conflict.
"Little Extras."
The government provides its fight
ing forces with uniforms, munitions
and the other necessities for welfare,
but the "little extras" must be bought
by funds subscribed by individuals.
That was the purpose of the war
chest campaign here.
Welfare expresses the use to which
the fund will be devoted. Through
the Red Cross, Young Men's Chris
tian association, Young Women's
Christian association, Knights of Co
lumbus, Young Men's Hebrew asso
ciation, the commission on training
cainp activities of the War and Navy
departments, the Salvation Army, Na
tional Jewish War relief, Boy Scouts,
Community Recreation Service and
similar war relief activities, health,
comfort, amusement, sipritual aid and
other helpful and diverting things will
be made available to lighten the bur
den of the men, who are fighting to
make the country safe for democracy.
Help for Homeless.
When the campaign started it was
announced that the money received
would eliminate further soliciting for
war activities for a year. It was also
made known that, in addition to ex
pending the funds for the "little ex
tras" for the boys on the firing line
that help would be afforded to the
thousands of women and children of
Belgian, France, Serbia, Poland and
Armenia, who have been made home
less by the war.
Many unique posters were placed in
conspicuous places throughout the
city. None probably attracted so
much attention, or was so effective
in results, as the series labeled "31 to
1," meaning that the soldiers and sail
ors were giving 31 days and nights
in fighting for their country, while
the stay-at-homes were only asked to
give one day's income to the war
Textile Industry of
Germang is Paralyzed
New York, July 4 Four-fifths of
the textile plants of Germany were
idle in May and the misery prevailing
among the workingmen was daily
increasing, declared Deputy Kraetzig,
socialist, in the German Reichstag,
according to the Berlin Vorwaerts.
"The textile industry is paralyzed,"
said the deputy. "A feeling bordering
on desperation prevails aong the
The textile operatives, he added,
had been further alarmed by the oi

If Frank G. Odell wants to give up
his little job of secretary of the Fed
eral Land bank of Omaha and get a
real job, he can apply at the Bee of
fice, where one is awaiting him.
A few days ago the Bee published
an interview with Dr. W. N. Condon
of Humphrey, Neb., in which the doc
tor suggested that the business men of
the small towns close up their busi
ness three days a week and go out
on the farm to help the farmer. This
suggestion struck C. B. Palmer, store
keeper and farmer of Bradshaw, Neb.,
as a good one, and he sat down and
wrote us as follow:
"This is a very good suggestion, and
should it be carried out I wish you
would send Frank G. Odell to look
after my 50 stands of bees, as my
Gate City Better Prepared for
Readjustment After War
Than Any Other Lo
cality. No city of the union will be better
prepared for the business readjust
ment which will occur at the close of
the war than Omaha.
Inflation of values is a natural se
quence of abnormal industrial and
economic conditions during a great
war and shrinkage in value is abso
lutely certain in a return to the nor
mal. Foresighted jnen must look forward
to the period when millions of men
now engaged in the business of war
must return to civil life and when the
countless industries that are now
thriving as a result of war will be put
out of business and their employes
out of work.
In the end it will be seen that Oma
ha is especially favored in not being
a city where war industries are an
overshadowing activity, absorbing
the energies of its skilled and unskilled
laborers and employing the bulk of its
working capital.
It is true there are a few industries
here which have been stimulated by
war demand, but the output of these
factories are a mere side-issue of their
regular business and a return to peace
conditions will not disturb these con
cerns in readjustment.
Most all of Omaha's industries are
basic, related to the necessary eco
nomic needs of the nation, founded
upon stable conditions of consump
tion at all times. They go the even
tenor of their way in times of war as
in times of stress and it is due to
this that Omaha has had no inflation
or feverish condition of any of its
industries, such as are making mush
room cities of formerly staid and con
servative eastern towns.
When peace is declared there will
be less shock here than in any other
great industrial and commercial cen
ter in America.
Omaha will be better prepared to
take care of all her working popula
tion and her industrial and commer
cial needs than ever before in her
The millions its citizens will have
invested in Liberty bonds and war
thrift savngs, during the perod of the
war, wll make a splendid financial
foundation when peace returns, and
will be a reserve accumulation which
will be of incalculable value when the
time for readjustment comes.
The serenity of Omaha's adapta
tion to the new requirements will at
tract the attention of capitalists
whose millions, now employed in war
industries, will require reinvestment
and the wonderful . possibilities of
Omaha as a manufacturing center,
situated as the city is, in the heart
of the producing center of staple
raw materials, and of the continent's
best transportation facilities, will be
get consideration.
The immense repair of war' losses
will fall on a community such as
Omaha and the stable quality as well
as the docility and content of its
working population will be an as
set which will not lightly be con
sidered by captains of industry
whose prescience will enable them to
see the commanding position this
city will enjoy at the close of the
Omaha is one of the thrift centers
of the union and the practice of
thrift by its citizens will continue,
piling up community wealth in a re
serve accumulation that will astound
our own people when the time comes
that the government will no longer
need to employ the capital in the
winning of the war.
All this time, and with a brilliant
future before Omaha, real estate
values have continued normal. There
has .been no response to the condi
tions that obtain to create abnormal
and inflated conditions elsewhere.
Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Toledo, De
troit, Kansas City, St. Louis and a
host of other places vhich are now
centers of war industrial activity have
boosted the prices of all'classes of
real estate to a dizzy height, but
Omaha has remained sane.
The man who invests in real estate
here now can do so with the same
certainty of profiting on the natural
increment as he would have had he
invested 20 years ago.
Omaha is the one best investment
bet in real estate in the United States
Cigar Smokers in Germany
Are Facing Big Shortage
London, July 4. A famine of cigar,
tobacco confronts German smokers.
The trade, according to German news
papers, estimates that the supply will
be entirely used up by November 1.
During the war Holland ha3 been
the main source from which Germany
obtained cigars, but because of a
heavy shrinkage in imports from the
Dutch colonies tobacco exports to
Germany have almost ceased. The
government is considering how the
impending famine can be averted or
ameliorated. One proposal is to
abolish cigar manufacture during the
summer. According to the Frank
fort Gazette, German cigar smokers
must in the best circumstances pre
pare to do without their favorite
weed next winter.

Frank O'Dell
son, Harry, who has been looking
after the store, is now at Fort Riley

chance for him to make good use of
his knowledge of this branch of ag

the job, but he was out of town fr

Pickaninny's Idea Conceived in
Georgia Village Bears Fruit
in No Man's Land in
This is an interesting human in
terest story spun by the special cor
respondent of the New York Times
with the American Army in France.
Of the two threads out of which
this yarn is spun one started in a little
village situated about 16 miles inland
from Savannah, Ga., and the other
started in the office of the German
high command in Berlin. In the
Georgia village I don't recall the
name of it now a pickaninny de
veloped the idea that the best kind of
a dog to chase a rabbit was a long
legged dog, and that if a long-legged
dog could be had with an attenuated
nose he was a doubly valuable dog
because not only could he be used to
chase rabbits with an enviable de
gree of success, but in addition was
the best kind of a dog to root a 'pos
sum out a hollow stump, where
'possums have a habit of going. In
the office of the German high com
mand there developed the idea that a
dog, having considerable intelligence
would make a better messenger than
a German soldier on the battlefield,
and also that if a dog had long legs
he would be a faster messenger dog
than a mfssenger dog with short legs.
Such was and is the acumen of the
German intellect.
So the threads of the story started
far apart and stretched a long ways
back. They have met at a certain
point on the French front, where the
ertswhile pickaninny is a first class
private in the army of his Uncle
Samuel, and where a short ways off
the German military dogs carry mes
sages back and forth to the Boche
pillboxes and advanced posts. Abra
ham (Lincoln) Davis his pals all
call him Ike has dodged a lot of Ger
man bullets and gas grenades. He
has killed two Iloclies and hasn't done
a thing to make the French think any
less of the Americans. Yes, Ike has
had considerable excitement since he
landed at some months back. Ike
has seen lots of things he would never
have seen if he hadn't enlisted in the
American army,' But he hasn't for
gotten that the best dog to chase a
rabbit is a long-legged dog.
Bad Luck Bunk; the Best
Player Always Victorious
There is no such thing as "bad
luck." The belief in it is a gross sup
erstition. It is claimed that there is
a lot of luck in poker. My observa
tion has been that the man who wins
at poker consistently is merely the
best player of poker. There are some
who have a "run of luck." But if that
"run" lasts three months, the oppo
site "run" generally lasts equally as
long. If the good luck holds up for
a year, the bad luck appears during
the next year. Any habitual card
player, unless he is a very poor play
er or an unusually good one, will tell
you that his winnings and losses just
about counterbalance.
In poker, as in life, the final de
termining factor is skill, knowledge
of the game, patience, taking advan
tage of opportunities. If you have a
premonition that you are going to
fail in an undertaking, you are prom
ising yourself disaster in advance, you
are merely saying to yourself: "I
know I am not equal to that. I'll fall
down on it sure." Dismiss the pre
monitions. Throw away the
"charms" and talismans. Get on the
job. McGure's Magazine.

Corn for July Delivery Strengthens While
August and September Options Sag. -
Chicago, July 6. Belief that? arrivals of
corn soon would fall below Immediate re
quirements strengthened the market, to
day for July delivery, but August and
Septomher sagged owing to the auspicious
crop outlook. Prices closed unsettled,
cent net lower to 1 cent advance, with
August $1.5301.54 and September $1.66
Ml.66. Oats finished 1-8 to '1 cent
down and provisions varying from 10 cents
decline to a rise of 2 cents. ,
Although Iradcrs expected tor see a fairly
good movement of corn yet from rural
points for a week or so, the opinion was
general that loading of new wheat would
then turn out so brisk that cars available
for corn would bn relatively scarce. In
this connection the fact evoked comment
that the first new wheat of the season
reached ChlOago today, a week earlier than
In 1917. Kstimates that Canadian mills
were producing 4,000 to 5,000 barrels of
corn flour a day tended also to give firm
ness to Immediate demand for corn. On
the other hand, domestic crop advices were
almost uniformly excellent and word was
received that some rain had fallen where
most, needud In Canada.
Heavy hedging sales against large pur
chases to arrive here put the oats market
on the down grade. '
Provisions averaged higher with hogs.
