marshal, announced his candidacy
yesterday morning for councilman
and mayor, when Walter Wilson,
former state senator of Dodge
county, presented him with petitions
of 10,000 men and women.
John P. Breen, when he heard
of Mr. Dahlman's decision to enter
the race, said he was "out of it."
In announcing his candidacy, Mr.
Dahlman read a formal statement,
declaring he "would jfcel like a
coward if I fail to heed such a
demonstration represented by the
petitions,", and that the" petition
showed the desire for "the kind of
government which a great majority
of the people desire."
Mr. Dahlman said he would re
sign as United States marshal if
Petitions circulated for him bore
the slogau "Onward Omaha" on
their covers. One petition, circu

Government Aids Family
Of Former Service Man
Fremont, Neb., March 23. (Spe
cial.) Parents of Willard Ireland,
former soldier, who died about a
year ago of tuberculosis, were noti
fied that his estate would receive
$700, although he dropped his insur
ance a month after his discharge.
Ireland enlisted at the age of 17 and
saw active service in the trenches.
When discharged his health was oro
nounced to be perfect. ,
It was established that his death
was the 'result of exposure in France
and through the local chapter of the
Red Cross, his family, in meager cir
cumstance, with a number of small
clyldren, will receive the compensa
tion from the government.
Where It Started
The window is a survival, nor, as
man's desire for more light and air,
but of his instinct of self-preservation.
With only a door in his hut,
he could not see all around; so he
cut a hole in the , wall, thus giving
him watch for his enemies in the
reatf as well as in front.

These owners were allowed $34,000
for their land which would be taken
and $30,000 for the-building. They
ask for a total of $75,000. Then con

would have left would not be of
value to them except at such price as

Frank H. Meyers, one of the :ip
parisers, remarked that this 16-foot
strip would be of considerable value
because it would be sought by the
owners of the property to the east.
Sir. Myers remarked that a 16-foot
strip, known as No. 1, Broadway,
New York,' brought the highest price
ever paid for an equal area of land.
Two Foot Strip Left.
W. F. Stoecker owns an aoartment
house on the east side of Twenty

Leavenworth street. He has been
allowed $76,800 for 50 feet which is
to be taken from his lot, leaving only
two feet of the present site of the

the building back on unoccupied land

whereby the city will sell the building
at auction, which will give Mr.
Stoecher an opportunity to bil it in.

According to the ancients, the tur

one also of the lasting love of those
left behind. The jewel should be
worn around the throat or as a

4. Because the eastern bottle is
made of the raw hide of an animal,
consequently when any tormenting
liquor is put into it the skin, being
green, distends. Should the bottle
have been stretched by this process,
then it would burst if put to a second
