LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 19. (Special.)
Although Governor-elect John II. More
head Is pledged not to accept a legisla
tive appropriation for the running ex
penses of the executtvo mansion. Gov
ernor Aldrlch has decided to mako pro
vision that his successor shall have the
same allowance he has enjoyed.
An estimate prepared In the governor's
office and filed In the state auditor's
office showing the amount needed for
the coming blennlum contains an item
for S5.G0O for the maintenance of the
mansion, including servant hire, J1.C00 for
traveling expenses and &00 for contingent
Tho estimate, prepared under tho di
rection of the governor, also calls for
316,000 In salaries and 32.000 to meet tho
ordinary expenses of tho governor's
office, Tho legitimacy of these Items has
not been questioned.
It Is supposed in tho governor's .office
that whllo Mr. Morehead wilt refuse
to accept the stato funds for maintenance
of his residence, he will not assume
financial responsibility for the permanent
Improvements which are mado to the
mansion. The legislature will probably
provide for a sufficient amount for the
physical upkeep of tho mansion.

for another clerk' In his office to lssuo

JVemnha. for Applea,
Nemaha was thu banner Nebraska ap
ple county this year, according to the
statistics compiled in tho office of the
otate labor bureau. Tho county pro
duced 1,209,483 bushels. They are valued
now at 31 per bushel and is twice the
amount gathered in any other county of
the state. 4
Tho close competitors of Nemaha were:
Otoe, C66.280 bushels; lUchardson, 617,351
bushels; Pawnee, 893,360 bushels; John
Bon, 356,730 bushels; Cass, 346,349 bushels;
Gage, 236,356 bushels; Lancaster, 294,738
These. eight counties make up the
southeastern corner of the state and are,
according to the statistics prepared and
gathered, not only the most productive
apple area In the state,, but compare! fa
vorably with any other equal area In
the' world. '
The total apple production In Nebraska
this year Js estimated at 7,378,899 bushels.
This does not approach the 1911 crop,
when nearly 10,000,000 bushels were taken
from Nebraska orchards.
Nemaha 1b the banner county in moro
ways than one. Its total orchard acreage
this year exceeded any other cbunty In
the state, Cass county coming second In
this and Scott's Bluff county third.
The total number of apple trees in the
state Is estimated at 2,694,000 and the

els. State IIlKhTrax Commission.
In session hero today tho Nebraska
State Automobile association formally
presented a bill which will bo Introduced
in tho next legislature in tlie associa
tion's fight for better roads In Nebraska.
It contemplates the establishment of
a state highway commission, to be com
posed of three members appointed by the
governor, to serve without pay and to
work out Borne uniform and comprehen
sive system- of permanent road building In
The commission Is to have the author
ity to. determine upon the best methods
and equipment to bo used through ex
perimentation and Is to employ engineer
ing and clerical asslstanco as Is neces
sary. Municipal League Meets.
The League of Nebraska Municipalities
held an annual convention in Lincoln to
day with thirty-five teprcsentatlves of a
score or moro of Nebraska towns and
cities in attendance.
Telephone conditions in the state was
the principal theme. City Attorney
Slama of Wymore made the point that
the supreme court should bo asked to
decide whether or not tho State Railway
commission Instead of the city councils
should control telephone companies oper
ating under franchises granted before the I
passage of the act creating the railway
The ILncoln Telephono and Telegraph
company and the BelJ Telephone com
pany ' and the railway commission wcro
attacked-and warmly defended by repre
sentatives of different municipalities.
Some declared that the consolidation of
the Independents with tho larger com
panies is meaning a htgher rate with no
better service. Others declared that the
rates now In force are commensurate
with the service rendered. The league
closed Its session today.

dollars it is true saves the club
ber in actual cash at the very outset
255 dollars. Yet we doubt very much
whether the actual saving is as at
tractive to as many persons as these
easy club terms 9 dollars the first
payment; then 2 dollars a week with
out interest added,
9f This is the first time in the United
States that player-pianos of the known
quality of the Orkin Brothers club player
piano have been offered on anything
like as easy terms as 9 dollars the first
payment then 2 dollars a week, with
out interest added.
1F And it is only through the planning
and carrying out of such gigantic deals
as the Orkin Brothers player-piano club
contemplates, that such prices and such
terms are possible.
But to get back to the terms: 9 dollars the first
payment then 2 dollars a week. The usual terms
on player-pianos like the Orkin Brothers player
pianos arc not less than 25 dollars down and more
often 50 dollars then 15 to 25 dollars a month,
with interest added at the rate of 6 to 8 per cent.
f See the difference?
It is thus that we say that it is probable
that the one feature, out of the dozen or more
of the excellent features of the Orkin Brothers
club that will appeal to the greatest numbers,
is the easy and attractive terms. Heretofore
these great instruments have been offered upon
such terms as would almost preclude even well-to-do
persons from buying them. Now we
come along and through the might of money
and numbers, make it possible for any person
of modest circumstances to own ones of these
kings of the player-piano world.
These Orkin Bros, club player-pianos are like 18-karat gold
NEW HIGH SCHOOL AT

Orkin Brothers player-pianos have a

Orkin Brothers player-pianos have a

In most player-filanos tho bellows
which produco tho power of action are
mado of rubber. Tho bellows which pro
duco tho power of action in tho Orkin
Brothers player-pianos aro a composi
tion of leather nnd canvas they will
wear for years.
Then there is another point that
should have special mention the tempo
This one single device puts the Orkin
Brothers club player-pfano in a class
by itself. It is this little lever, oper
ated by tho right hand, that makes a
great piano performer out of everyone.
Instead of playing mechanically with
the tempo lever you can play like a
great pianist. With the tempo lover
you can control tho time of the music
you aro playing, with the tempo
lever you give your playing
every shade tho. composer intended.
Let us suppose there is not another
single device on tho Orkin Brothers
player-piano to make its player mechan
ism play like th0 human fingers (there
are half a dozen), let us discard them
all, save this ono alono the tempo
lever still wo would say that this one
feature alono places the Orkin Brothers
player-piano in a class by itself.
The person who ioins this club, in the first place, aside from any other consideration, ets a
player-piano of known quality. ' There is no element of doubt or uncertainty.
The Orkin Brothers club player-pianos are as standard and staple as wheat. They are like
18-karat gold. They are among the pioneer of player-pianos. The player-piano that has made the
greatest strides of the player-pianos during the past 4 years. So, as we say, aside from any other consideration whatsoever,
you can take your choice from two of the best player-pianos made which is a good starting point.
Cfl The Orkin Brothers club piano-player offered through this big club is
the latest model. It has an 88 note player not a 65 note player. It plays
all the keys not about two-thirds of them 'as do most the instruments
sold at $550. All late model player-pianos play 88 notes the whole of
the piano. As all modern pianos have 88 keys you wouldn't think of
buying a piano having only 65 keys, would you? Then why would you
buy a piano with 88 keys on the keyboard and a player built on the
inside that will only play 65 of them?
J The Orkin Brothres club' player-piano is a full size, upright grand,
colonial design and the player on the inside plays all the keys.
nal design and the player on the inside plays all the keys.
Music is a thing for everybody to enjoy
J IJ you want music in your home; if you want the real pleasure of
music; if you yourself can get any pleasure out of personally pro
ducing music; if you want every member of your family and your,
friends to enter into the pleasure of music with you then join the
Orkin Brothers piano-player club do it now.

That thoro can bo no misunderstanding, let us again tell that 2
hundred and 57 dollars and 60 cents includes everything the Orkin
Brothers piano club mombor baa to pay. In other words, It is tho
outside price, or tho oxtrcitio prlco.
The pianos aro of tho most reliable and trustworthy sort worth
3G0 dollars each. ,
To sell thorn and soil them quickly wo planned and organized a
gigantic club, a club of COO members, each and ovcry memper to
onjoy the samo advantages and privileges. v
Wo decided to soil tho pianos in this way, at 257 dollars and 50
Wo arranged to sell thorn without adding Interest to the price
Wo placed tho payments at 5 dollars as tho first payment, and 1
dollar and 25 cents a wcok for the remaining payments.
Tho prlco (257.50) included everything charging nothing more
for any privilege extended members. We agreed to give club mem
bers their money buck if a 30 days' trial if tho piano was unsatis
factory. Wo arranged a year's exchange privilege for members, which en
ables them to exchango their planoB at any time within one year
without meaning ono penny's lofui.
Wo got up a life assurance feature for members, which cancels
all payment In the event of the death of a club member.
Wo flgurod out a rebate system so that those who want to pay
faster than $1.25 a week will profit by It by getting a rebate of 15
cents In cash handed back for corn and every -week they pay In
Boiling the whole plan right down, we put Into the plan every ad
vantage and privilege that would suggest itself to us to make this
big inaugural sale an instant success.
And It bus been.
Cannot wo have your application? Can wo not at least show
you the pianos and go over the whole proposition with you?
