Prefit in Soda Water. The soda water counter in this drug store is nearly always crowded. Five men are busy there with the faucets and spigots all day long. One cus tomer asked the dispenser at the end of the counter how much business the fountain “did” during a year. "Our gross receipts, year in and year out, are more than $60,000,” he replied, and when the customer expressed sur prise, he said: “Why, at Blank’s place they take in as much more than that, because he’s open twenty-four hours a day.” “And what’s the profit?” the customer pursued. “About 100 * per cent.” —New fork Post. Poet Who Overcame Hoodoo. Sir Edwin Arnold received many birthday congratulations on June 10, when he completed his seventieth year.

A GREAT GUESSING CONTEST In Which You May Win a Small For tune While Aiding a Worthy Enterprise. The Auditorium Stock Contest has been successfully launched after months of preparation, and is growing in popular favor as it becomes under stood. The Contest was started for the ben efit of the Auditorium, that the money yet required to complete the building in every detail may be quickly raised, and in away that will be burdensome to no one. Every one likes to take a chance to win a fortune or a lesser amount, espe cially when the object to be benefltted is a worthy public enterprise, as is demonstrated daily by church and charity fairs and the numerous other meritorious enterprises. In this case it is to finish a beautiful place of en tertainment and recreation for the citizens of Omaha, South Omaha, Council Bluffs, and tributary territory, and when completed it will stand as an object lesson of the enterprise of the builders —"The People.” The “guessing” Contest as shown on the page advertisement of this issue is very simple in its operation and readily understood after reading the Rules printed therein. A ticket is sold for 25 cents, which is exchangeable for a share of Common Stock in the Audi torium Company. With this ticket goes two free guesses, one on the New York election, the other on a certain Special sum of money. The contract, or top portion of the ticket is retained by the purchaser and the premium coupon is filled out and sent in to the office of the Auditorium Company, room A, N. Y. Life Bldg. If a receipt for the Premium Coupon is desired, an enclosure of a 2 cent stamp will pro cure it. Those who may wish to par ticipate in the Special Prizes will be furnished with a Special ticket free with the purchase of a regular ticket. This Special ticket must be made out in the same manner and address as is given on the reguar ticket, and must accompany same when sent in for filing, and have the same number as the regular ticket. When these tickets properly made out are received at the Auditorium office, they are placed in metal boxes made for the purpose, in order of the estimates to await the time of the awarding of prizes, those on the elec tion, until November, and those on the Specials until the day following the 15th or last day of each month. To show the detail of the making up of a Special Prize, the first Special was made ready by Mr. Sam’l Rees, who will act for the printers. Mr. Rees had the amount of the prize made up in bills, gold, silver, nickles and cents, and placed same in a pro miscuous heap. From this pile he took the money without counting, placing a larger bulk in one sack than in the other. The sacks were then tied and sealed. In this manner Mr. Rees could not possibly tell what sum had been placed in either sack, nor even approximate it. The two sacks were then deposited with the cashier of the First National Bank of and by him securely locked In the safety deposit vaults of the bank, and cannot be distributed until after the Contest is closed at midnight of July 15th. Mr. Rees has made affidavit that he does not know the contents of either sack, and that he will not make a guess for the prize. The guessing will be on the amount contained in the larger of the two sacks. The person making the best guess gets the contents of both sacks, or the entire prize. Where two or more persons are tied on the prize, the money will be equally divided among them. These prizes will be paid as soon as the guesses can be as sorted and the money counted after the Contest closes, probably on the following day. Fifteen trade marks taken from 10- cent packages of Defiance Starch will be exchanged for an Auditorium Stock Ticket by the Defiance Starch Co., or The Omaha Auditorium Company when presented in person or by mail. This opportunity to get reaily val uable premiums is rarely presented to the public. It presents a chance for every one. There is no limit as to the number of tickets purchased or ex changed for trade marks. DELIGHTFUL EASTERN TRIPS.

GOOD ADVICE TO WIVES. Max O’Rell Gives Some Points as to Government of Husbands. Max O’Rell, in his book, “Her Royal Highness, Woman,” gives this advice to wives: “To rule your husband, my dear lady, do exactly as you please, but always pretend that you do as he pleases. That is where your ability comes in. Men are ruled, as children are, by the prospect of a reward. The rew r ard of your husband is your amiability, your sweetness, your devo tion and your beauty, of which you should take constant care. “Always let him suppose that It Is for him that you wish to remain beau tiful. The woman who believes she is asserting her independence every time she puts on a hat particularly displeasing to her husband is as clever and intelligent as the Irishman who buys a return trip ticket at a railroad office, and, on entering the car re marks to the passengers, ‘I have played a good joke on the company. I have bought a return ticket, but I don’t mean to come back.’ ” HAD NO POETIC FEELING. Retired Poet Sorely Tried by Prosaic Comoanion. A retired poet, who Is prospecting in the Rockies, writes to a friend his impressions of the scenery. “When ever I can,” he says, “I slip out on some lone peak and drink in a thirsty soulful of sunrises and sunsets, pine song, star-dream, and all the myriad enchantments of virgin nature. There is a beauty-fantasy, a joy-illusion about »*ery slope that lifts Its tree fringed lines up to the solemn, snow crusted heights. In all these runes and hieroglyphics I read God’s beauty* message unto man, who refuses to read. The other day I was out with a man on horseback, and the cliffs and tints of a mountainside so appealed to me that 1 said to him, “Jim, look at that hillside—isn’t it wonderful?” '“Yaas,” Jim replied; “I’m a-goin’ to take it up fer a goat ranch.” “I didn’t shoot him,” concluded the retired poet, “though I had the gun and the will.”—Everybody’s Magazine. Sensitiveness of Incubators. “An egg in the process of hatching is remarkably sensitive to vibration,” says an expert in the breeding of fowls. The rumble of a train or the passage of a wagon along the street will spoil a whole incubator full of eggs if the faintest vibratory wave reaches the apparatus. Even such a little thing as the banging of a door in some other part of the house will destroy the chances of hatching out a brood where care has not been taken to place the incubator beyond the reach of such disturbances. A thunderstorm always gives breeders a scare, as thousands of eggs may be spoiled by a sudden heavy thunder clap. To sneeze or cough in the vicin ity of the incubators will sometimes work a disastrous result.”—Philadel phia Record. Few Letters an Advantage. Stress of business and the dearth of time will lead to a change In Presi dent Roosevelt’s signature. He has always been accustomed to write out his first name in full, but he finds that it will save him about 50 per cent of time ana trouble to make it simply T. Roosevelt. Where a man has to sign his name about 1,000 times a day It makes a big difference. There is a man in the office of the auditor for the Post Office Department who, it is said, o*eß his appointment largely to the fact that his signature contains but five letters. He is Second Deputy Auditor N. Chew. He does little but sign his name and he does that for about eight hours a day steadily. His Objection to Milburn. Mr. Milburn, chaplain of the senate, Is a general favorite because of his personality and his infirmity—he is entirely blind —and will probably re tain his office until forced to retire by advancing age, but several years ago when he was chaplain of the house of representatives there was a determined effort to defeat him for re election and feeling was manifested in the contest both by bis supporters and his opponents. Asked what ob jection he had to the blind chaplain, whose eloquence cannot be question ed, a western representative said: “The fact is, I am tired of hearing Milburn dictate to the Lord day after day what he ought to do.” Mistook the Signal. Gov. Van Sant of Minnesota called on President Roosevelt recently and the chief magistrate intended to ask him to stay and have lunch. The gov ernor took one of the president ges tures for an intimation that the In terview was at an end and Just then Mr. Roosevelt turned to greet a dele gation. When he looked around Mr. Van Sant was gone. A messenger was dispatched in search of the Minnesota man, who was found facing about half a peck of steamed oysters in a swell restaurant. It was too late to go back, be thought, so he remained wh«r» he was. AMERICAN VOLCANOES. Regions of Volcanic Activity In the Western Hemisphere. The active volcanic groups oi the western hemisphere occur in five widely separated regions: 1. The Andean group of volcanoes of the equatorial region of western South America. 2. The chain of some twenty-five great cinder-cones which stretch east and west across the south end of the Mexican plateau. 3. The Central American group, with its thirty-one active craters, extending diagonally across the western ends of the east-and-west folds of the Carib bean corrugations, fringing the Pacific side of Guatemala, San Salvador, and Costa Rica. This is separated from the Mexican group on the north by a large non-volcanic area, the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and on the south from the Andean volcanoes by the Isthmus of Panama, where no active volcanoes are found. 4. The chain of volcanoes of the Windward Islands, marking the east ern gate of the Caribbean Sea, stand ing in a line directly across the eastern terminal of the Caribbean mountains, trending east and west, and parallel to the Central American group simi larly situated at their western termini. 5. The volcanoes of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands.—Prof. Robert T. Hill In the July Century. CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. Labor Exchanges Want It Abolished In France. Tremendous mass meetings were held recently in the labor exchanges throughout France to advocate the ab olition of the death penalty. President Loubet, who has always been so much affected by an execution that he can not sleep for days before or after its occurrence, is heartily in favor of the reform. It is said that he . has prom ised himself that until the measure is adopted he will follow President Grevy’s example by refusing to send any more victims to the guillotine and commuting the sentence in each case to life imprisonment. “I’ll bet that you don’t know how to pronounce g-o-l-f.” “G’off, I don’t want to pronounce it.” Hall’s Catarrh Cure Is a constitutional cure.
