At tl Sunday night ho was shot nnd killed by W. G.

At least one other girl among Mil ler's 0 employes yesterday claimed Jo bo his fiance. This is Dorothy While, 15, who wears an engagement ring. Her mofhor is also ono of Miller's employes. ClinCf charged with tho murder, is the father of 10 children and un lit recently was a farmer near the town of Wayne, ft'eb. According to his wife, ho becamo involved in debt nd had lo leave the farm. Sinco then ho has been working on grad ing gangs. Cline, who was arrested by polico 1n his tent near tho chicken shack, said ho shot nine times at Miller a flor Miller had fired at him twice. Employos at the shack who wit nessed the shooting, said that Mil ler did noljiave n revolver and that 'Clino did the shooting. Police doubt lino's story and said that he was intoxicated when arrested. Miller, who was 21, died in tho arms of Miss Martin, who was at the shack- with him. Following tho shooling sho commandeered a pass ing automobile and rushed him to the Lord Lister hospital. But he died In the automobile as it sped toward the hospital. "I prayed for him as tho machine raced toward the city," said Miss Mnrtin. wtiose ensraecment lo Miller wis io nave ueeu annuunccu souu, she said. "Ho mumbled something Ko mo and died in my arms." Girl Tells Story Hero is the story of tho shooting sis, told by Miss Martin; "Clino came into tho shack and asked for a bottle of pop. Ho drank it and then said: 'I want seven more bottles. I got seven kids home and want to give them each a bottle.' Mr. Miller thought ho was joking and tried to talk him out of it, but he insisted on having the pop. "Cyclono then put the bottles in a sack and gave them lo him, know ing that he had boon drinking. He started to pay Miller, but was told that hn could have tho pop as a prosenl. That peeved him, and he said: 'Do you think I haven't any money? I'm no tramp.' Miller got him out of tho shack and told him to go' home. Cline wont out and soon we heard him ar guing with two couples in an automobile-in front of tho shack. Mil ler ran out and led him away toward the grading, camp. They wore gone about a minute when several shots rang out. Soon Cyclono camo into tho shack and cried: ' 'I'm shot. Hurry 'no to town."' ,Mrs, Eva Houlolto, one of tho "Mammys" at the sliaok, said she was looking out of the window and saw tho shooling. Witness or Shooting "Gyolonp was woaring a white ap ron anil I could see him easily. I i also saw tho other fellow. About 20 feel cast of tho shack, I saw tho man pull out a revolver and shoot al Cyolone. I saw Cyclone kind of reel around and then walk toward tho shack. Tho man ran toward tho grading camp." Polico arrested Clino after a half an hour search of nearby grading camps. They found him asleep in a lent with his wife and five small Children, all girls ranging in ages from 16 months to 9 years. Two old er boys, Columbus, 18, and Tom, 10, were asleep in a nearby lmnkhouse. Tells of Drinking The son, Tom, said that ho was with his father during tho day and that all of them had been drinking. Al tho timo of the shooting, he said he was about 30 feet from his fath er and only saw tho flashes as the revolver was discharged in the darkness. Tom and Columbus were taken to the police station and held for in vestigation. "He tried to kick mo off my land,'' said Cline, referring to Miller. "I 'ol him go a? fair as ho wanted to until he began shoving mo off my land. Then told him: 'Don't do that again or you will bo sorry.' Ho pulled out a revolver and shot at me. When ho fired the third shot ( told him, 'You havo had your chance, now it is my turn,' and I then shot nine times at him. I'm not sorry for it was all his fault." Polico placid little credence in llio story told by Cline, because lie was in an intoxicated condition. Only one of tho nine bullets struck Miller. The one shot pierced his heart, according to hospital attend ants. Miss Martin and other employes of Miller at the shack, when ques tioned by police Sunday night, said that Miller did not havo a gun. When Cline was first taken into W0dyyiie denied tho' SHooling hilt when confronted with tho gun and told of the statement of his son, he admitted having fakoti part in what he termed a "duel of rights. Cyclono Miller, oltho a resident of Omaha for only a year, is generally known in the city. Ho brought to Omaha the idea of selling box lunoh es in large numbers.

Roger V(, Babson evidently is not upset by labor troubles and the threatened coal shortage. In n statement issued today he forecasts good business for the next few months. "Go after busings now!" says Mr. Babson. "Buyers during these past two years havo Jbeeu following a hand lo mouth policy. Everyono has purchased as, little as poslhlc becauso a delay has meant lower prices and a consequent saving. Willi the turn of the business tide, how ever, prices again tend up and both business man and individual will make more money by buying ahead rather than by following the moro conservative polioy. An analysis of 7C basic materials for instance shows that 18 are higher today than (hey were a year ago, 21 are lower than a year ago, while -1 commodi ties show no change. Price increase will bo fell most on llio raw mater ials that have been completely de flated, but finished poods in prac tically all linos, will hhow some r-trcnglliening. "(t is particuarty important that retail merchants fully grasp this change in the situation. They must turn with the. tide. Tho retailer should plan on a substantial increase !.. I 1.. .....i !...:-! ill ua'ju iit;tvcru mm aim vjiiiiím- mas. If he does not he will be caught with, iv shortage vnthur thau.'i sur plus of goods, and a transportation tie-up will make it difficult, to gel more on short, not foe. This increase in business will be duo to a combination of increased purchasing power and a chango in the attitude of the general public. In spile of the strikes ami labor trouble there is relatively Utile un employment at present. On incomes ovor 81000 figures show that 8 of the piii-eliaing power of the coun try comes lo the individual as wag es and salaries. This makos up the bulk of the purchasing power upon which the averatre business man nnisl depend. A drop in the cost of living and prospect of steady work is rapidly turning a majority of the people into ready buyers. "In the farming field, bumper crop and bolter prices promise lo class the farmer ns a good prospect. Ho has bought very little since 1020 and his accumulated needs should ab sorb a tremendous quantity of farm machinery and supplies. Tho plans of the business world accumulated during these past two years will also bo put into operation this fall. "The combination of those several factors points to a merchandising shortage. If I wore a retailer I should certainly buy all goods nec essary for Christmas trade now and insist upon early dolivorioa. "This general increased business activity will lead in turn lo tho in oroased business and industrial pro fits that are already boing-reflected in 'the action of the stock mar- ke. Itnoreascd profits, of course, mean' moro money for expansion and equipment. Renta nnd money rates, in the meantime, aro tending grad ually downward, relieving both in. dividual and business house in the matter of overhead. Banks havo ample funds to matt all commercial and investment irauirements. In many localities monoy is a drug on the market. The slight seasonal lightening will doubllosg be cxper iencod at crop moving time, but taking the fall soason os n whole money throughout' the south and west should come noaror to the New York levol. "In tho investment market, prices of good bonds promise to rule strong this fall. As investment capital ac cumulates the Interest ratee ease off, bond prices automatically rise. As profits and incomes increase, the non-taxable issues will again be in demand. The affect of oommbdtly prices will bo moro than offset for the time being by the quantity of money available. Continue to hold your bonds. Whether or not we shall have a reaction in the stock market this fall is not the point. W may get the break that the 'beers' are hop ing for or stocks may climb eud denly The point of importance, ai $tM4$$Sv I see it, is tho fact that wo have just turned the corner at the bot tom of a period of depression and that the stock market has never reached its high point until early in the period of prosperity. Those who own good stocks outright need not worry about tho market,- In spilo of roil and coal difficul ties, general business as reflected in the index of the Babsonchart is holding its own. Activity is now run ning at 0 per cent below normal. G.O.P SENATORS RE-NOMINATED IN PRIMARIES Claytonites Picnic At New Home With the consolidation program, In cream was extra.

WORLD POLICE BODY IS FORMED tho nlral distrlols, many of the dis tricts find thlmsolves without a meeting place or community center. Consolidation may créalo belter edu cational oporiuhily, give the rural districts better educational facili ties, but it, in a large measure, kills the community spirit, which is so essential to happiness and content ment of tho rural folks. Such a condition of affairs seems to prevail in tho Nfw Home com munity; sómo of the pooplo find themselves fro ml5 lo 17 miles away from the new school building, and the old building, which is o monu ment of' toll and sacrifice on the part of the people, is to be sold. They want it. They need this building.
