SENT TO TEACHERS OF STATE irksel9t'sn Will Vote loos oa Plaee far Xt (eaventlea mm4 Mneola Wests Their Trade, Next week the teacher of the state will receive the formal Invitations of Omaha end I,lncoln, both of which de sire to entertain the teachers at next year's convention. They will be sent out In printed form by the executive committee of the association. The teach ers will then vote by mail on the place for holding the next meeting. Lincoln Is very sorry that the teachers met in Omaha this year, because the Lincoln merchants have figured to a nicety their profit on the teachers and estimate that the convention brings them 100,000 worth of trade every time It meets In Lincoln. Bo they are busy try ing to knock Omaha. They got the Lincoln Journal to print story knocking Omaha, then had It reprinted In circular form' and sent to newspapers all over the state. As far as can be ascertained, not one of the papers reprinted the article. Many edit ors, on receiving the circulars, Imme diately mailed them to the publicity bureau of the Omaha Commercial club. .The circulars were very clumsy. There was nothing on circular or envelope to tell where they came from, except a lock box number In the upper left hand corner of the envelope. The senders were not even clever enough to invent a fake "news bureau" for the occasion. It Is presumed that the Lincoln Com mercial club paid for the circulars and postage. Lincoln (Is Very Busy, The Lincoln club haa been bombarding the teachers with "literature." Including that stock Rostcard poster designed for a general appeal to all conventions, but with a special appeal to' none. ' The poster .whlrh bears a picture of the pos-t office building and the Young Men's Christian association building, can be bourdolr. V Lincoln Is trying' to tell the teachers that Lincoln' hotel rates are lower than Owiaha-'S. t This is not the, case, accord ing to officials of tha Omaha Commercial club, but it it were, the teacher would still be assured of having a place to sleep In OmahA, whereas many oC. them have had to all up all night In Lincoln because they could not find rooms. Next to the state ' flr, the teachers' convention is the If's'gest money bringing affair that visits j.lflooln and the mer chants of ths capital are bending every effort to ket auother chenoe at the teach ers' pocketbooks next' year. They fcot so used to having the teachers In their town that they freely used tha trad ar- gumen in getting their subscriptions for entertaining the teachers. The Omaha Commercial club, at . the lime It Invited the teachers last year, advised them to spend their, money In their home towns before coming . to Omaha,, giving their local . merchants all the benefit of their trade. Omaha wants to entertain the teacher because the metropolis has many large institutions that they should know about and about which they should be abls to tell their pupils. This will do Omaha and the state more good, the Commercial club figures, than any amount of money the teachers might spend.

Z.-Kln Davis, a negro, aged CS years,- who lest Saturday night shot and killed Frederick A. Hchwab (white) at Fairfield, Anne Ar rundel county, was taken from the lorknp at Brooklyn, a suburb of Paltl more, erly today and shot to death by a small party of unlndentlfled men. Davis, who also was known by the name of Johnson, was dragged to a spot about VO yard from the station and shot four times through the lungs. Mis body was not discovered until several hour later. The avenging band, thought to have not exceeded eight or ten In number, formed quietly. They effected an en trance Into the lockup without attracting the attention of those living nearby, and went to I.avls cell, where they found the negro asleep. Hubert Chase, an other negro, who was held In the station as a witness In the Rchwab case, was not molested. Ctmee said Davis fought desperately and shrieked for mercy, but tils rrlee were quickly sllenoed by a blow on the head which stretched him un conscious, lie then waa dragged away to his death. The trouble which caused the shooting of (Schwab stsrted In a saloon at Fair field, over a game of pool between Frank Kchwab, a brother of the dead man and Davis. Hchwab claimed the negro called him vile names. After the party left the saloon Freder ick Schwab took up his brother's quarrel with Davis, who drew a pistol and sent a bullet through Kchwsb's heart. Davis then fired two shot at Frank Schwab without effect. The negro fled, but was arrested an hour later.' He claimed that ha shot In self-defense, declaring that Frederick Schwab had struck him. The jail wa left Unguarded.

Bhe received word from Washington (iiat she and her four children are to receive 1100,000 or more a sharers In the Alaop olalm against Chill, which waa settled last July. The Fosters are poor, and the new of their good fortune dased them at first. The famous Alaop claim wa aettled for tfloO.OOQ, pf which the expenses will consume HOO.OoO. The remaining f5O0t0O0 will be divided among nine claimants. After many years of litigation the claim was placed before K'ng Kdward of England a arbitrator, and at his death King Qeorge took the place ' and mad the award. Qeorge P. Foster, Mrs. Foster's father-in-law, held more than in per cent of the stock of Alsop A Co. Several days before his death Mrs. Foster' husband told her of his Interest, but said ther waa not a chance In the world to collect any part of tha claim. As the years dragged on the Fosters lost hope, all except Mrs. Foster. On her faith she built dreams of some day owning a little home and of seeing the world. When a reporter for the World carted on Mrs. Foster last night the family waa In high spirits. Mrs. Foster's son. Harry, aid the family would first build a house. Then his mother would go around the world with several of the children.

REVOLT FOR CIRCUS LIBERTY Brilliant Bit of Fletlen Meeeeed F.d Iloere from Parental ftTTltrhtas. When uirrus day srrlve.1 father told us we were not to attend the circus; and, what waa more, we were to work ail dav and not to see the crowds or the parade. t told Jim 1 Intended to make .at sneak and see the circus If I died for It. Jim was a good boy and wanted me not to go, but when he saw I .was determined ho accompanied me in the wild run w made for liberty; . ' . . Then we started out to. borrow money with which to attend the evening per formance. Put we didn't mate any prog res, so when the band struck up for the night show we decided to crswt under the tent. It seemed easy and f was about In when a man caught m by the heels and pulled me out. While the or cus man was cuffing me I saw another circus man cuffing Jim, about twenty iect away. . lie had alno failed. Then we met a man named McCurry, a member of my father's church, a good man who did not Intend to witness the performance, but who wa nevertheless walking around Outside to see the crowds and hear the band. W appealed to Mm. We said we had run off and should get a whlppini, but that It would be terrible to get a beating and not see ths performance. Mr. McCurry looked around, to see no one was watching, and said; "Well, I don't want your father to know It, but I'll loan you the money." A few minutes later w were Inside the tent, whistling with the other boys, and Inviting the circus men to "play ball," for the performance had not yet com menced. But when It did begin It waa all we had expected and more. It was Miles Orion's circus, I remember, and the clown was a marry fellow railed Dr. Gllkerson. But at last the show waa over, and Jim and I hung around an hour or more, dreading to go home we knew what was coming to us. The Is st wagon drove away about 1 o'clock In the morning, and then there waa nothing left for us but to face the editor. So we sneaked In at the kitchen door; we Imagined mother would leave that open for us, and found she had. After entering the kitchen there waa a door feeding Into the sitting room, and then a stairway leading up to our room. We had gone around the house and noted a light In the sitting room; we expected trouble" ther. After entering the kitchen we tried the knob of the sitting room door, and tried to turn It quietly. Kver notice how a door knob squeaks when you try to turn It, quietly? That door knob squeaked, and when we turned it and went into the sitting, room there sat the editor, waiting for us. I went In first and Jim sneaked In behind me. "Well," father ssld, "you've been to the circus?" f There wa no use trying1 to deceive him. I was willing to try,' but knew It was im possible, so I replied, meekly: "Te, sir." - i He thought a while, as though trying to decide Just how hard he would whip us, and finally Inquired: "How did you like It?" I waa too' wise a boy to be enthusiastic, under the circumstances, so I replied: "Oh, I didn't think It amounted to much." ' (It did, though; It waa the very best show I ever saw In my life.) For some reason ths editor didn't grab us and begin the punishment we expected, and ha had no switch. "Did they say anything about me?" he asked.- I hadn't thought of that before,' but evidently he had been expecting an at tack. I repeated what-tha clown had said, making It as mild aa possible. "How did the people take it?" he asked again. Then X had an Idea, I replied with ant nation; "Welt, sir, you should have been there and seen how the people took It! Bill Hlllman, the sheriff, walked down to ths ring and shook his fist at the clown and said the people wouldn't atand for. low circus people abusing a prominent man Ilka you. And Mr. Cuddy, the banker, he walked down to the ring, too, and told the circus men what he thought of them. Her said you were one of ta most useful men In town and that people looked up to you, .and tbel they didn't want te hear any more of that". The editor waa evidently pleased; still he delayed the whipping. "Well,'' heeatd at-last, after thinking awhile, "hurry -on te bed. - We have a big days work ahead of u tomorrow. When we got In bed. we chuckled softly, and Jim nudged me with his elbow and said I was certainly the boldest, wisest boy the country ever produced. , And we paid back-Mr. McCurry next day with ducka we stole from mother and later fixed It all right with her-she never was a hard on us aa father was. n we told her how we bad fooled father, she said it waa a sin, but we oaught her laughing about It afterward.

WHERE WEALTH HAS GONE Life Isasraace at Mighty Factor la the Aecmanaletloa of Wealth. In the fifty years from 1819 to 1910 the population of the United States trebled, growing from M.ooo.ono to 90.ofja.noo,,. and the wealth of the United States grew about seven and eight fold, advancing from 110.000,000,000,000 to estimates which vary from 1107,000,000,000 to $120,000,000,000. To whom has gone thla rapid Increase In . wealth, more than twice as rapid as population ; ' " Mr. Frederick L. Hoffman ' furnlshVs one answer In an article on American In surance for half a century. The average else of a life Insurance policy Is under $2,600. Some of these policies are held ly the very' rich, but the great majority, as theis value shows, afe held by men of moderate means. IJfe Insur ance Is the saving fund of the salaried man and wage earner, rather than of the great capitalist. If the great Increase In national wealth has gone to the very rich, then the total of policies and the amount of insurance would not keep up with the increase of wealth. If the Increase in wealth has been disturbed through the whole mass of. the community, then life insurance would grow with the wealth. If on the other hand, those of moderate means have been abe, a the years went on, to save more and more and to have a larger and larger proportion of the mortgage on the Invested wealth of the country, rep resented by life Insurance, then the amount of life insurance would increase very much faster than the. Increase In aggregatlonate national wealthT The- amount of life Insurance has grown in the past half century Just lot) fold, from tiS3.708.4M to ll.40t.2tU.042. In other words, the share of tba wealth of the country owned by those of moderate means would seem to have grown sixteen times as fast as the growth of the gen eral wealth. ' How about th wage earners? Ills sav trgs are In Industrial Insurance. This began In 1171 Since' then the population haa exactly doubled and wealth trebled. The amount of Industrial insurance In this period has grown from 1443,072 to 3,r77.(M7.ff74, or 7,87$ fold, and the number of policies has Increased from 4,910 to 23,934,44.1, or 4,Kf fold. The wage earner has gained even more In opportunities for saving and in. capacity for saving than has the salaried, man and those of small means. ' It Is true of both classes that the re suit of the changes In wealth during the periods now under consideration halve greatly added to the happiness of th average man, to his safety and that of his family for the future and to his share In the wealth of the country. This Is one of the many reasons and the chief reason -why., there are fewer anarchists In the United States than In any other land and why the socialist vote Is small er in proportion to the total' vote than In England, France, Germany or any other of th large clvillxed lands.
