J. C. Root, of Lyoos, the
founder of the order of Modern A'oodmen
of America, and also of the Modern Wood
men of the World, is in Omaha, and has
met with the newly orgauizsd camp of
the latter order in that city. About 100
members were present and they were ens
tertaioed for about two houra by Mr.
Root, who spoke at length on the par
poses and objects of the orde and com
municated the secret work. -
The Woodmen of the worlc. was or
ganized in June last and has increased
rapidly, the major portion be ng in the
Pacific coast states where then ia already
a membership of about 5 000. Camps of
the order have been organized in Kansas,
Nebraska. Iowa, Ohio, Indlami, Connecti
cut and Texas, and others art being or
ganized in New York, Pennsylvania, Am
kansas and Missouri.
The order is a fraternal insurance so
ciety in which members may sarry a poli
cy ranging from $500 to $3,300. Great
care has been taken in compil isg the con
stitution and by laws of the order, to
avoid the rocks npon which other similar
orders have been wrecked i.nd to incor
porate the features of all.
One of the important fea ores among
the objects of the society is a provision
for marking the grave of e sch member
with a suitable monument provided by
the order, without coat to ti e beneficiar
ies. The headquarters of tie order will
be at Omaha and Mr. Root 'fill remove to
that city in the near future.

and during that time nearly 8.000 pianos
and organs have been sold from ths
Rock Island store, several hundred of
which have been sold in this city. We are

Emerson pianos, which our hooas haa
sold throughout the northwest for ths
psst thirty yean; this fact alone is a
sufficient guarantee of their excellency.
There are many Hallet A Davis and
Emerson pianos in the tri-cllies now that
have been la constant use lor twenty-
five years and are still in good reps r.
The New Scale Kimball piano, which
we are now manufacturing in Chicaso, is
meeting -with success unprecedented in
tbe historyof piano forte making. It
has been endorsed by Patti, Tarnagoo,

dred others whose names are Immortal in

Our company have been over two hun
dred pianos behind their orders during
the past year. They ara manufacturing
about three hundred pianos a month, and
they are all shipped to dealers ss soon as

per annum. You can easily figure that
this would amount to f 150 on each pia

making it, before tbe dealer gets hold .of
it. People who buy our pianos do not
nave to pay any such "tribute as this.
