her she wept, laughed and became hys
terical, hugging and kissing her flvo little
children, who .had gathered about her,
unable to understand tho situation. fihe
was so overcome that she was unable
to talk for awhile. Finally she said:
Slip U Overjoyed.
"The people of Omaha aro so good;
Ood bless them. I did not expect this.
This will enable us to live and It wilt
place me in a position by which I win
be ablo to keep my chlldron with tnc,
instead of placing- them among strangers,
as I feared I would have to do."
The sorry condition of Mrs. Mankuskl,
as detailed by The Ken aroused the sym
pathy of several good women on the
north side of tho city. Yesterday some
of them brought her several cans of
fruit, others brought bread nnd still
others meat. There was a nlco bill of
groceries left at the little house by a
Mrs. Mankowskl owes a small amount
on some necensary furniture that alio
bought from an Installment house before
her husband disappeared. After he left,
she was unable to keep tip tho pay
ments. Sho Is not going; to loco the fur
niture, for a. time, at least, on tho agent
called yesterday and Informed her that
the house would not press the claim.
When Tho Bee called Friday evening
to turn over to Mrs. Mankowskt the con
tributions of Omaha citizens It found her
busy tylnr up two large washings that
she was about to deliver. She had arisen
at 4 o'clock In tho morning and before
breakfast and before her children had
awakened, sho had those washings out on
the line. During the day sho dried nnd
Ironed the clothes nnd last night de
livered them, but sho did not get home
from her day's work until aftor 8 o'clock
and after that hour she had to get
supper for herself and chlldron. Wlillo
she went to deliver Uie four big wash
ing a neighbor woman came over nnd
itayed with tho chlldron,
Children Need Clothing;.
What Is needed most Just at this time
at Um Mankowskt home Is clothing; for
the two twin boys, 6 years of age. If they
had clothing and shoes they could go
to the Lake school, only ry block away.
Their toea axe sticking out of the old
shoos they wear and they am without
stockings. Tljolr pants and waists axe
clean, but they aro almost patch upon

That Paul Mankowskt was murdered,
or while iMaue wandered away and met
Ilia death, seems to bo the opinion of a
detective who visited the house. He haa
mode an Investigation and has found that
tlx weeks ago Wednesday Mankowskl
drew tho check for his week wage at
tho office of the Swlftoompany' In Onxiho.
The check has never been returned,

Entz Electric Starter and
The thirty-eight horse-power Franklin "Big Six" is the only
high grade large car equipped with a simple, direct connected elec
tric starter. The Entz system does not add a single control to the
car. It is a real self-starter and one that works without any extra
levers, buttons or pedals. You do not have to learn how to oper
ate the Entz starter, you simply get in the car and throw the switch
like you throw in any ordinary magneto switch, and the motor starts.
In crowded traffic if you slow .the motor down to a speed where
it would ordinarily stall, the starter picks it right up and starts it
running again under its own power. It does this without any work
on your part, all you do to keep the motor running is operate the
throttle. When you want to stop the engine throw off the switch.

Six cylinders, thirty-eight horse power
This five-passenger Franklin touring car is the most completely
equipped high-grade large car, and it is a car that affords the
greatest satisfaction. Fast and easy riding over the road it will
average thirty to thirty-five miles an hour without you realizing
how fast you are going. Easy on tires, because it is light weight
and because large tires are used, it gets from 8,000 to 10,000 miles
per set double the usual service. Economical in fuel, it gets from
20 to 35 percent greater mileage per gallon of gasoline than other cars
of its tvpe, and averages 400 miles per gallon of oil, without smoke.
Built also as a four-passenger torpedo-phaeton. Price, $3,600.
