Omaha Tax Title Buyer Practices

with a Vengeance.
Special to The Journal.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 11.With wealth
of a $100,000, with the philosophy of

.writers of the ConcarcL school as his
solace and his comfort, with the cares of

into thousands of dollars/Andrew Jack-1
son Seaman's living costs him 15 cents,
a dav on an average. His wildest epi-.
curean flights never exceed in cost 10
cents a day. I
Seaman lives in the suburbs of Ben
Bon, in a cold, barren room that costs
him but 50 cents a week rent to the
owner of the dismal little cottage of
which it forms a part.
Here I mav rest in peace and read
by Bible and niy Emerson and my Thor
eau, when the trials of the day are
over," he explains. "Of course, I
can't read much this weather, because
I have no stove in my room, but by re
tiring early and putting my lamp at the
head of mv bed, I spend manv a happy
hour in reading and meditation. My
surroundings do not amount to much,!
but they are nearest in resemblance to I
Thoreau's ideal home close to nature at
Walden Pond, that I can find for 50
cents a week, which is all that any un
married man ought to pay in rent.
A Tax Title Buyer.
Mr. Seaman's business is that of tax
title buyer. During the past two years'
he has been especially active because
10 per cent of the separate pieces of
property in Omaha have been sold under
the hammer at a cleaning up sale in
taxes known as the "tax scavenger
sale." He has bought and sold titles
rapidly, and often his extensive capital
has been completely invested for sev
eral days at a time. Day after day he
lias attended the sales during the regu
lar business hours, and then tramped
thru the outskirts of the city until dark
ness, looking over lots that would be on
sale the following day, that he might
more accurately judge their values and
But thru it all he has lived the sim-
life with a vengeance. He didn 't do
because of necessity, but because it
was a part of his nature, inherited from
his fattier sixty-two yeajs ago, and
studied with philosophic mind.
A man can live upon an economical
basis all right, if he will watch out for
his expenses," says Mr. Seaman. "My
father always taught me to cut my coat
according to my cloth, and not accord
ing to the fashion. That is why I can
live about as cheaply as any man in
Years ago Mr. Seaman was a steel
worker. But by working hard and sav
ing all but the mere trifle that his daily
fare cost him, he had enough money
saved in a few years to begin his pros
perous career as a buyer of tax titles,
which business he has extended to Den
ver, Lincoln and Kansas City, journey
ing to those places from time to time in
the "cheapek^manner"possible7packing 1
his documents and some rolls and cheese
as traveling rations into his rusty and
frayed little hnndbag.
Mr. Seaman's business motto is to buy
when others want to sell, and, to sell
when they want to buy. He scorns the
man who puts all his money on .his back
and declares that any man can dress
comfortably upon $5 or $6 a year.*
Finds a Cheap Office.
1 He is a member of the Young Men's
Christian association and spends the
greater part of his time in the rooms of
the association^ saying' the membership
fee of $5 a year is the cheapest office
rent. There he writes and arranges his
title.business. He nts the printed de
linquent tax lists from
book in ordeand to
pastes them in a s_c!ra'T5,
keep track of Ms business.
In the early of Mr. Seaman's
career as a tax title buyer, the Y. M. C.
\A. had a limited'' -membership that
cost but $2 a ye-ary and this amount Mr.
Seaman paid promptly each year, but
-finally, during thehard times when the
directors were scratching around for
every dollar obtainable the sight of the
wealthy tax title buyer sitting day after
day in the most comfortable spot in the
building, using up association stationery
and eating his frugal' lunches on the
library tables, they hinted to him that
an additional contribution would be wel
comed. But the philosopher ignored the
suggestion. Finally a plot was formed
by the directors to do away with the $2
membership altogether, and make every
I one pay at least $5. This, it was
thought, would banish Mr. Seaman, but
it didn't he paid the increase.
Solves the Coal Problem.
Mr. Seaman also solves the coal prob
lem, which is apt to-be such a.winter
bugbear for some peoplfe,.by simply elim
inating the coal altogether."- He has
never slept in a heated room, he-says.
Mr. Seaman is worried when any one
1 asks him about his wealth, and evades a'
direct answer. But conservative esti
mates, based on the amounts he has
been known to have invested at a given
.time, place it at a little over $100,000.
[Yet he lives without kith or kin or cat
or dog, but only his well-thumbed and
pencil-marked volumes from the writers
of the Concord school, some cheap prints
of Emerson and Thoreau and Margaret
.Fuller and Amos Bronson Alcott, evi
dently torn from a magazine, tacked to
the walls, and a single framed picture

ERECTING BIG SMELTER
R. B. Higbee Tells About, Valuable
What promises to be' one ofr'the big
gest acquisitions the state of Idaho has
secured in years is "the smelter which
has just been about completed at Pon
deroy, Idaho, by the Panhandle Smelt

R. B. Higbee, the well-known mining
man, in speaking of the Idaho smelter,
"The men in back of the Panhandle
Smelting Co. are among the best known
and influential men of that section of
the United States.
"To the investor this company and
its undertakings offer a proposition
that is far out of the ordinary invest
ment, as the safety of the enterprise is
absolute, being backed by holdings that
more than guarantee the solidity of
every dollar invested.
Situated as this smelter is in the
heart of a rich mining section, enough
ore has been contracted for to insure
the successful running of ,the smelter
for an indefinitely long period.
A mine without a smelter to extract
its precious metals is as useless as a
mine without any ore, and many large
mine owners gladly welcome the ad
vent of the Panhandle company's
Mr. Higbee stated, thai this com
pany is doubly fortified in that it owns
many acres of valuable mineral lands
in which is exposed large bodies of ore
of sufficient hieh grade to enrich the
investor in the Panhandle Smelting Co.

are known and rated as Successful min

THEORIES ABOUT FOOD
Also a Few Facts on the Same Subject.
We hear much nowadays about
health foods and hygienic living, about
vegetarianism, and many other fads
along the sarneJine.
Eestaurants may be found in the
larger cities where no meat, pastry or
coffee is served and the food crank is
in his glory, and arguments and the
ories galore advanced to prove that
meat was never intended for human
stomachs, and almost make 'us believe
that our sturdy ancestors, who lived
fourscore years in robust health on
roast beef, pork and mutton, must have
been grossly ignorant of the laws of
Our forefathers had other things to
do than formulate theories about the
food they ate. A warm welcome was
extended to any kind, from bacon to
A healthy appetite and common
sense are excellent guides to follow in
matters of diet, and a mixed diet of
rains, fruits and meats is undoubtedly
As compared ,with grains and veg
etables, meat furnishes the most nutri
ment in a highly concentrated form
and is digested and assimilated more
quickly than vegetables or grains.
Dr. Julius Bemmeon, on this subject,
says: "Nervous persons, people run
down in health and of low vitality
should, eat meat and plenty of it. If
tho digestion is too feeble at first it
may be easily corrected by the regular
use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after
each meal. Two of these excellent
tablets taken after dinner will digest
several thousand grains of meat, eggs
in three hours,
'nlatteS the stomach
may be^jjo tfoublePwill be experienced
if a regular practice is made of using
Stuart's Dyspepsia., Tablets, because
they supply the pepsin and diastase
necessary to perfect digestion, and
every form of indigestion will be over
come by their use.,
'That large class of people who come
under the head of nervous dyspeptics
should eat plenty of meat and insure
its proper digestion by the daily use of
a safe, harmless digestive medicine like
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, composed
of the natural digestive principles, pep
sin, diastase, fruit acids and. salts,
-which actually perform the work of
digestion. Cheap cathartic medicines,
masquerading under the name of dys
viiepsjia cures, are useless for indiges
ffcion, as tltey have absolutely no effect
-uponf the actual digestion of food.
