THE BKB: OMAHA, SATURDAY, NOVEMB13R 23, W12.
3 A glance at our show windows tells the story As a rule each store tries to display Its choicest things 1 Its show windows. Wo do being human helnRS, not greatly different from other human be ingsand we take it for granted othpr merchants do the Fame. Therefore It Is reasonable to supposo that the garments noTV displayed In the bIiow win dows around town are the choicest bargain offering of tho several sales they advertise. Be the assump tion Incorrect wo apologize for the lino of thought this paragraph contains. Ue it so we ask every expert judge of good clothing and good values'" to compare the garments shown In our windows with those shown In other windowB, and tho best part about the whole thing Is that the goods In tho win dows are to be found In the store or we'll sell any garment In the window.

OUR GREAT SALE of Hand Tailored, Quality Suits and Overcoats Here is a merchandising event of more than passing importance one that will be remembered long after . the last garment has been disposed of because, the occasion has produced bargains of rare quality and never, never has a store offered such truly good clothing at such radical discounts almost a half off. ' i Remember mat this store never cries "bargain" un less it has bargains to cry Our regular prices aro the lowest, considering the qual ities they represent, to be found in the cityexper ience has amply proven that. When a man buys a King-Swanson garment in regular season, be the prico $10.00 or $40.00, he is certain of having received the greatest value that could possibly bo found notwith standing the fact that a special sale may have been in progress, somewhere at the time. We dislike tho phrase "Special Sale" we never use it unless there is extraor dinary warrant for so doing. The regular prices on our quality clothes would be "Sale Prices" elsewhere. People know it. They also know that "Special Prices') here means something hence theyflock to our store by hundreds as they have been doing for several days and go away enthusiastic ;over our sales. The store that offers you a customer - satisfying store service, any time, all the time Tills store malfes much of lta superb service a service that prompts imitation ot tho most flagraut type.

Cnnrnnty Fund Assessment. 1 yt state banking board will make Its v semi-annual assessment on January y, amounting to one-fourth of 1 per cent on deposits, for the ntata bank guaranty fund. This assessment will yield approxi mately 200,000 for the fund, which Is now K-CO.C0O, the Bum set aside to Insure de Itors against loss from bank failures. In fact none of this money has ever been collected from tho bank. They are merely required to Bet aside thejr pro rata share of thefund and In case of u bank failure, the Individual banks would be reulrcd to remit their propor tional share to make up the deficiency caused by the failure. The remainder would remain in the hands of the Individ ual bank. Assessments for the guaranty fund will not actually cease altogether after J munry 1, but they will be reduced to . i-e-twoiitlAth of 1 per cont each half er. They will be continued at that . ....til tha fifnri Khnlt liflivn enualled I's 1" r -ent of tho aggregate deposit In all tute banks. They will then ceae, "-t to be levied again until ho fund has lent depleted below 1 per "ut of the i f.i deposits. Ta relieve the ceogMtol ieadiUou iu all the insano asylums In the state, Sec retary of State Walt today outlined a plan by which thirty Insane pht'.snts could be removed to the home of the feeble minded at Beatrice, which at Mils time Is not occupied to Its maximum capacity. Tho. plan, however, will not bk put Into effect until Superintendent Thomas of the Beatrice institution has given his consent to the arrangement. rne members or tne inibllo Lands ana Buildings board are not convinced now that It would be practicable to confine Insane and feeble minded patlonts In the same Institution. According tof Superintendent Williams of the insane asylum here there are a number of entirely harmless persons at his hospital, who could undoubtedly be maintained at the Beatrice Institution without the slightest trouble because of their mental condition. Secretary Walt was In Beatrice yester day and his Inspection of the Institution suggested the removal Idea. At the time Superintendent Thomas was absent. Upon his return the plan will be put up to him for his consideration. The space t the Beatrice home Is available for men only. The wards are located In two buildings and with bed ding and other equipment already on hand the plan, as far as can be learned at this time, can be put Into execution with little difficulty. Slnthemi Is Candidate. Cecil Mathews, editor of the Iltverton Review, has announced that he Is a candidate for United States marshal, succeeding Marshal Warner upon the ad vent of the democratic national administration. Mathews' newspaper opposed Governor Morehead In the early days of the cam paign, later taking on a policy of silence. His editorials opposing Mr. Morehead were widely copied by bull moose news pa pis in the state. The Crete Democrat In a current Issue prints a photograph of Richard L. Met calfe with the caption, "Our Next XTnltMl Stages Consul to Liverpool." No Information hss ben secured here which even indicates that Mr. Metcalfe Is a candidate for a consular appointment. The coustructola of a cement flooring In the new machinery hall at the state fair grounds, started last year, has been completed at a cost for this Item alone of $3,000. The Board of Managares of the State Fair association Is now having ce ment walks laid about the Uva stock collseium and under the seats In that building where heretofore the spboa has been utilized for concession.

A Few Pardons Refused, Dan Holler, bigamist from Boyd county, must serve the remainder of .his seven-year term In the stato penitentiary, the Board of Pardons having denied his appeal for clemency and Governor Aid rich having approved It. Jesse Young, colored, thirtcen-year prisoner from Otoe county, was also refused a pardon, although J. S. BJt ler .one of the three board members, favored a release for him. The governor cut down the term of James Perry, col ored, second degree murderer, from Douglas county, to nine years, Which will release him August 3, 1913. Holler's attorneys argued that the whyslclans at th estate hospital for the Insane had said that unless ho was re leased his mind might become perma nently deranged. Dr. Butler, In his opinion on the Holler case, refers to the convict as a "gay young Lothario whoso free dom would be a menace to a certain type of maidenhood." Young killed another negro In Ne braska City In 1904 and his term will expire In June. Perry killed a fallow workman In Cudahy's packing plant In Omaha. KfiSflneer Asks Ctutb, State Knglneer Price has certified to the state auditor's office an estimate showing that his department will need 1.1 6,003 more to be operated during the next two years than was appropriated by the legislature for the blonn um just closing.

Two years ago Mr. Prlco'H salary was raised J500 and hls assistant J200, but us tho appropriation was mado on tho old basis tho engineer and his assistant have not received any port ot the salary In crease, Money for Home Owners. Stato Veterinarian Boatrum has doclded to recommend an appropriation of $25,000 to reimburse owners of glandered horses killed by direction of the department during the coming btennlum. He did not Include It In his first estimate, as there was some talk of abandoning payment for killed animals. The Board of Educational Iandn Is a shining mark In th egalaxy of depart ments which havo so far filed estimates of tlie amounts they want appropriated to them for tho comln two years. Thl3 department has asked for M.W0, although two years ago tho legislature opproprlated $5,000 to its use. CUSTER DISTRICTl COURT DISPOSES OF F0RTTY CASES TmoKKN BOW. Neb., Nov. 22.

He then proceeded to Impose a fine of flOO and the costs of thn prrosccutlon and ordered that the defendant bo committed until said flno and costs were puld.
