PEOPLK aro amusing beings, especially whon they tiro In love.
2 knew this a long time ao, and, bolloro mo, I haro fur
nlihod some amunement along that lino, I had almost forgotten
pant Incident until I strolled Into the exhibit now bolng conducted
hT the Omaha Art Olid In the court house.
Like all careful observer I nwopt n glance around tho drapod walls
of the gallery when I onterod, but my attention waa nrroBtod Immediately
by the portrait of a wom;n.
Doing nosey, of course, I mndo inqulrlon about tho painting, and
the answers, freely glron, reminded me of my youth, for I was In love
once, mysolf. Do you notice that 1 said "once,"
e It's a boautlful painting, the colors all being so harmonlonn and the
Tor eo gracofully caroloM, Tho subject certainly must bo a peach. Ho
ller I could fall In loro with her mysolf. ''
While back on tho subject of love, let mo tell you about tho painting
before I 90 rambling off again with a lot of nonsensical talk.
The painting was done by a .well known local artist at the lnstanco
of A young aocloty man. Tho oil represents tho llkonese of his swoetheart,
dt rather the sweetheart that ho used to have. Ho wants her back, but,
M the story goes, sho Is not willing. Not being a cavoman, familiar with
the more violont methodn of kindling cold hearts, he sought a moro romantic-
Tills Is what ho did: Ho took her photograph to the artist and of
fered him a llboral amount to roproduco Itllfo site, In oil. With the spur
of liberal compensation, tho fainter put forth his best efforts, and when
ho had finished ho waa proud onough of his work to consont to havo It
hung in tho galjory.
Bxcuso mo, I'm getting away from tho real point again. Horo It Is:
Tho young man Is going to taka the painting, present It' to his former
Bwoothoftrty toll uor he did It and trust that her heart will bo mottncl to
the extent of returning to him.
No a bad Idea, ab far as roiaanco goes, but caveman methods would
probably be more effective, Tho truth Is 1 would lot her go, I am of that
sort that want thorn to come to me f reoly, voluntarily, and with a full and
' open hearC Otherwise I Would not hare them, Out, I suppose that some
people ore different.

NEW DEPARTMENT STORE
Stone Company of
Trying for Monopoly
C, D. Woolworth, representlnx the
Commercial Land oonirany, declared be
fore the city commission that the Kettle
ltlver Stone company vraa aeektng to cs
tabllsh a monopoly here and has refused
to sell him stono at a pries which would
give him a profit.
lie had addressed a communication to
the council declining to live up to his
bid to ourb the following streets: Thirty-
third, Woolworth to Lincoln; Cuming.
Forty-third to Forty-eighth! Hurt, Twen
ty-fourth to Central boulevard; Twen
tieth, Maple to Ulnney; Nineteenth, BL
Mary's to Jonea.
Woolworth, It appeared during his ar
gument, had bid on Kettle River Htone
without first having secured a price' from
the company. Ills bid was based on the
price quotations he had received two
rears ago. Tho company refused to fur
nish the stone at the old figure. Another
company had bid on Kettle river stone
cents higher and the contract will go
to that company unless all bids are re
jected and advertised tor again.
Woolworth wanted the council to ro-
advertlse. He said the Kettle River stone
was not better than Redford. City En
gineer Craig was called In and eald Red-
ford stone was a sandstone and Kettle
River a lime stone and much harder.
Woolworth accused Mm of not knowing
what he was talking about.
Tho letter from Woolworth and another
from the Kettle ltlver company were re
ferred to the commissioner of publlo Itn-
brought forth only words of praise and surprise
from the thousands of enthusiastic visitors who
honored us by their presence.
The wonderful progress and advancement'
made By this great organization during the past few
months, created matter for serious thought from
every visitor it demonstrated beyond a doubt the
deep rooted determination of the Orkin Brothers
to make this store

Cross at the Top
Carries All Through
Many Inquiries are coming In as to
the ballot and how to vote the eight-foot
sheet Tuesday. A cross at the top after
republican carries with It a vote for
every name alt the way down the ticket
which has the namo republican after It.
It would also mean a vote for each of
tho constitutional amendments.
Should tho voter wish to scratch at any
place and vote for a democrat he must
cast a complete VQte In that subdivision;
for Instance, In tho division for state
senator, If the voter should wish to vote
for ono democrat he must moke a mark
after the other four for whom he wishes-
to vote or the vote for the person marked
would be the only one counted. The cross
mark at the top would not county tor the
others In that division.
