No less than seven business houses in the main part of the city were entered by bur glar last night. They appeared to be after money rather than goods, and Id not get rlcn for their trouble.

Main street; Frenk Hanlon, groceries. Jordan Brothers, dry goods and groceries and Catron A Chrlstensen, feed dealers on East S.xth street. The favorite method of getting In appeared to be breaking In rear windows and the Jobs are believed to have been pulled off early In tha evening. Sparks' store having been entered about 8 o'clock.

Mr. Sparks' son came to the store about 10 o'clock, discovered tha situation and at one notified tha police and the heriff, but they havs not yet been able to get any definite clues to the thieves. At Henry'a and. the feed store they got nothing for their trouble, but did consider able damage by smashing things up. At Spsrks II In change was all they got.

Wells of West Point as assistant physician at the Norfolk hos pital for the Insane has been the subject of considerable comment In the democratic circles of Cuming county.

Bholvs starts Dlacaasloa a to .linker of Advertising Medlam Which Dealer hold tee, Favorla bat One. With the holiday interruption, following closely on that furnished by political mat ters, the real estate dealers of Omaha have had little opportunity to learn Just what the exact situation Is and have been mark ing time and planning next season's cam paign. Few city lots or residences were bought "for the holiday trade." or given aa presents, but there Is a good feeling among the dealers and they look forward to the best season's business ever on record for the coming season. Some dealers predict Omaha has come to a point where there Is a demand for apart ment houses close In, and C. C. George of George A Co., la on who believes the valuable downtown corners will begin during the coming year to fill up with apartment houses. As In every west ern city where the original townslte is not cramped for space, there are many de sirable locations In Omaha, too inconveni ently situated to be the sites of new store and office buildings, yet too close In and too valuable to make either desirable or economical locations for residences. So these sites In Omaha, which will run Into almost two score, are likely to be the scene of busy time during 1909 and the end of the year will aee a large number of new apartments, which, from past experi ence, will be filled by desirable tenants almost before the ground Is broken for the foundations, and some of which will probably be sold for Investment before finished. This has been the experience ot the last year. Every apartment erected has been rented and several changed hands. because they looked so good to Investors. Hastings ft Heyden. Ernest Sweet and other have erected apartment houses which sold well on the market. Mr. Sweet had Just completed several apartment houses at Twenty-sixth and Howard streets, when Emma J. Ayers paid $11,600 for one of them. Since Mr. Sweet has sold two others at about the same price. He planned the apartments Just a year ago, had theaa leased before built and now sold. Mr. Sweet will put the money into other real estate la Omaha at once. T. D. Wead. who Is been spending four weeks in the east, writes that business conditions have Improved to such on extent In the north Atlantic and New England states, that a traveler from the west would scarcely believe It to be the same country which. In real estate circles, as In other lines, felt the financial trouble to keenly that the sales were abanded, people poured out of some of the properties considered the best; what did sell went at a sacrifice, and money was hard to get on city property. But It has all changed, says Mr. Wead, and the east Is getting Into the class ot the west, when It comes to main taining real estate values. No one accuses D. V. Sholes of the Omaha Real Estate exchange of Joking, and when he spoke In favor of the dealers advertising In but one Omaha paper Instead of three It was commonly admitted that Mr. Sholea had "started something." Mr. Sholes Is 1n earnest. He believe It would be possible for the real estate dealer to select one newspaper and use It exclusively for their advertising, compelling reader to buy that paper If they want to see the advertise ments of real estate dealers. In other words, the one newspaper would be the bargain counter for farm and city property, or a sort of bulletin and director for post ing what the dealers have to sell, and mak ing the readers go hunt the directory when they want to rent a house or buy a lot. Mr. Sholes Is undecided as to any paper and appreciates the fact that one class of daily newspaper will reach a cer tain class of readers, while the other news papers reach a class remote and removed from the othera. Thla la shown In the re port of the circulation departments, which keep some Idea In mind at least as to what other city papera their reader take. It is said en good authority that not 20 per cent of the reader of a reputable dally newspaper ever see or take to their homes copies of the so-called "yellows." The Chicago Dally Newa Is a notable example. The News publishes something like 320,000 papers every afternoon and while a small part of the issue leavee Chicago, It Is said leas than 20 per cent of the readers of the New subscribe to any of the "yellows" which "wuxtra" every twenty minutes and cover the streets with pink trash. Thus to reach the better class of readers the real estate dealers admit they will al ways have to use a paper which sells without red Ink. But W. W. Wallace Is one who Is of the opinion that it will al ways be necessary to use a "yellow" when a certain class of people are wanted to buy small property on easy payments or when tenement property Is for rent. Mr. Sholes Intends to push the Issue and convince his fellow dealers, If possible, that It Is a waste of money to pay for advertise ments In three or four papers when the same results can be obtained by adver tising In one paper. Secretary Harry Tukey docs not accept the proposition as serious, but thinks the time Is coming In the future when the plan will be adopted.

Electrical aad Btaae laveatlveaea of Osnaha Maa Sera la "Polly of the t'lrens." Those who saw "Polly of the Circus'' at the Boyd during Its engagement here were moat Impressed by the stage setting for tne last scene of the third act. This scene owes Its effectiveness to the mechanical genius of an Omaha man, Hugh Thomas, son of Dexter L. Thorns and brother of Cher if 4 Thomaa, sporting editor of The Bee.

Boys with hands which are destructive whenever they come in contact with the works of a clock or a piano will be much better after they have had Dr. Leon Elbert Landone build up their constructive noninterferlng brain cells. Dr. Landone sprang Into prominence re cently by his discussions upon the effect of employing the principles of Lutncr Bur- bank's Plant culture to human beings. When seen shortly after his arrival from Los Angeles, he said that he has an In stitute In the California city where he sup plies the effects of environment and nurture to child culture In much th same manner as the wizard oeveiops me penec tlon of the vegetable kingdom. "Mr. Burbank." said he. "believes that children should grow up wild, and In that respect we do not agree.. He certainly does not permit his plants to so develop. "We have Just begun to understand the reflex action of one part of the human sys tem upon another. Ullmpses of this Im portant field are obtained here and there through operations. It Is quite possible, for Instance, to build up the brain cell by means of aiding th development of certain muscles. Backward or defective children. It will ususlly be found, hai-e some muscu lar or functional defect, and If that Is over come, their mental condition will appreci ably Improve."

That has been ascertained by dissection after the death of the animal so trained. - . "By analogy It la not unreasonable to be lieve that the same building up of the cells occurs In human beings.

An application once or twice a week is quite sufficient. A person with a skin of that kind must seek, first, to keep th pores of the skin unclogged with dirt and duet, and then to use astringent lotion for closing the pores. A free use of cold water on the face will help, and aa limited a use of hot water as possible.
