Fetmtor 1 1 itcficot k of Ncbrat-ki and
Jmator l-rwlge of Maaehuett
luve not forgotten the league of pa
ion contest, when Senator llitch
toik. a chairman of th committee
Mt iirf,Kn rtlation utidsrtook to tie
the I nited State up with the Euro
ejii rontnillrd league of nationi,
ind Snutor Lodge, at ranking mem
ber o the committee from the re
suhluan aide, led the fight which pre-
lerved the independent utatus of the
L'nited Slates.
1 he o;0!ition engendered then
late tin trequrtitly. It did o in the
Irhate over the army appropriation
ill.
The hill carried an appropriation of
pnix"! i'"r the support of the
print!tirld ateual, located in Sena
tor Lodsr'k state, the only place
a here military service rifles are built
it tin country.
Senator Hitchcock proposed that
the item be reduced to $75,000 which,
I is acknowleged, would put the
ktvernment out of the business of
aia'iing rifles altogether. Only 18
te atori agreed with Senator Hitch
tock as against 47 who disagreed
ith him, but the debate called at
tention to the tendency to drift back
itto the state of unpreparedness
ahuh proved so costly when the late
Aar broke out.
Knew Industry Threatened.
Senator Hitchcock made no refer
ence to the fact that the indus,
.liich he proposed to eliminate, tc-
garrilcss of what it might do to the
country, it located in Massachu
setts, but the promptness with which
Senator Lodge and Walsh of Massa
thusetts. came to the fore in the de
bate indicated they knew that an in
iustry in their own state was being
ittacked.
Senator Hitchcock pointed out
that the government already has
2.800,000 rifles in store, and held that
this is enough for the present con
tingency. Chairman Wadswoth, chairman of
the military affairs committee, im
mediately called attention to the fact

that the making of military rifles i f ttl D!tl!llir
a tnt art. and that thii u the only Untie DnilSHlS
trade and the potteition ct the touUS
can be maintained. When the war
broke out the country was without

and maintain the American art of n4 who was on the South Omh
military rifle building, The arenl I rnarket yetrrday with a miiple of
load of Carting teet crop con
ditions around Oakland are in fair
shape, but corn is not all up and
needs a little rain.
Mr. Strelo also said most of the
feed lots in his section were prettv
well cleaned up of cattle a livestock
has been moving to market pretty
treely recently and there are but few
yearlings now ou feed.
The cattle Mr. Strelo brought in
were Hereford yearlings averaging
il pounds and for w hich he received
W.7S a hundred. The cattle were
bought on the local market last Au
gust as stock calves averaging 370
pounds, for which Strelo paid $0.75
a hundred.
Shorthorns Sell at Top.
A consignment of 18 head of heavy
I Shorthorn beeves was brought to the
local market yesterday by Martin
Roth of fender. The shipment aver
aged 1.551 pounds and sold at the
top price of $8.75 a hundred.
Mr. Koth said the cattle brought
in yesterday were the last of a bunch
of four carloads that he bought on
the local market as feeders last fall
and had been in the feed lots for
about eight months.
Four loads of cattle were marketed
here yesterday, by D. P. Carter,
cashier of the Bank of 1'olk, The
cattle have been on feed at the ranch
of llof Ostberg and of those brought
in yesterday 20 steers averaged 1.516
pounds, sold for $8.50 a hundred;
31 head averaging 1.276 pounds went
for $8.40 a hundred, and 14 head
averaging 1.07 pounds went for
$8.25 a hundred.
"About a week ago I had made up
my mind to send my cattle to the
Chicago market," said Mr. Carter,
"but something came up that pre
vented my making such a long trip
and I decided to come to Omaha.
And I am glad I came here after
having received such good prices and
it looks to me that Nebraska feeders
can do better in Omaha with their
livestock than any other market."

749 pounds, most of which sold at

Branded at Poor Economy.
Answering the plea of Senator
Hitchcock. which would have
wrecked this essential plant in
maintaining the preparednes of the
l'nited States. Senator Lodge said:
"As the senator from New York
has pointed out, it took two year
to get some of the factories which
make sporting rifles into condition
to make military rifles and, although
.100 mm may be small in number,
you have there the expert knowledge
which makes it possible to expand
very rapidly if you need expansion.
"J think it is somewhat like say
ing 'We are not at war; we are not
likely to be at war, and as it costs a
good deal of money to fire guns on
board ship, why do it?' If anything
should go wrong, it is very desirable
to have some men in the L'nited
States who are not foreigners who
do know how to fire the big guns
on board ship.
"The economy which would de
stroy this industry is the kind of
economy trom which this country
has suffered frightfully every time it
has had a war. It means abolishing
all preparation, and we know how
frightfully that has cost us every
time wc have unfortunately been
oblieed to eo to war. I believe it
would be a rreat economic mistake,
and no advantage to the cause of
peace, to break up that group of ex
pert workmen, just as I trunk it
would be an intolerable mistake to
break up our army and our marine
corps." i

USE BEE WANT ADS-THEY BRING PROFITS
For many years housewives have "run

afforded the opportunity of buying '
linens that come from the very fountain head of Linen

Where We Bought Them
You remember the great shopping expedition
made through EUROPE last winter by a corps of
Brandeis Store buyers under the personal leader
ship of Mr. George Brandeis. It "w as on that trip
that our buyer went into the linen markets. He
went to PAKIS for hand-made Cluny laces, center
pieces and scarfs; BRUSSELS for hand-made
lace scarfs and bed spreads; BERLIN for towels,
table cloths, napkins and lunch cloths ; CZECHO
SLOVAKIA for the soft, mellow finish linens,
table cloths and napkins; SCOTLAND for the
sturdier linens and the beautiful hemstitched din
ner sets, together with the new colors in lunch
cloths ; then to the .
King of the Linen Countries
IRELAND where our buyer selected linen
cloths and napkins and table damask, linen tow
els and toweling, linen sheets and linen scarfs
all the very ereani of Irish manufacture. In addi
tion to this we have received from the MADEIRA
ISLANDS Madeira napkins and center pieces.
From ITALY came Mosaic napkins, scarfs and
lunch cloths, all hand-made. It is impossible to
detail the purchases comprising this wonderful
linen list or to describe their beauty. You will be
charmed with the wonderful collection.
How We Bought Them
All Europe had been worn and torn as the result of the
war. Linen manufacturers needed money. J. L. Bran
deis & Sons were prepared to pay cash. The manufac
turers were prepared to make further concessions for
purchase in large lots. The Brandeis Store is famous
in commercial circles as one of the big outlets for mer
chandise. ExprT representing this store studied money
exchange condiuons and, taking advantage of low rates
of exchange, were thus enabled to obtain further price
advantages. Then these purchases were made in ad
vance of the proposed tariff bill, which would materially
increase the cost of linens.
AS A RESULT
This immense stock of high-grade linens reached The
Brandeis Store under such price conditions that we are
able to offer to our customers the most attractive prices
and the most desirable goods In this line they have ob
tained since pre-war days.
We have no hesitancy in sayiiic that these price are
from 200 to 800 per cent below peak prices and from
50 to 100 per cent under the lowest priced for linens
qnoted since 1913.
