with regular army officers as instructors.
He says, "It must be clearly understood

have an Idea that they will have a chance
to havo a lot of pleasure will be mis

duty a pleasure. '

THE MOTIVE THAT PROMPTS A KING-SWANSON HALF-PRICE SALE
A word of explanation to .those who might entertain a feeling of doubt regarding tho genuineness of our
Half Price offer. Often in the course of a day's selling our salesmen aro confronted bv such questions as this:
"HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO SELL CLOTHES AT HALF PlllOE UNLESS THE PRICES ASKED AT
THE OPENING OF THE SEASON ARE A TRIFLE H1GII1"
, To such questioners and all others who might fool somowhat skeptical regarding a Klng-Swanson Half Price Sale," wo offer thin IllURtratlon: Suppos
ing wo bought 50 suits of one lot at the beginning of tho eeacon, which cost us $19.00 each, and wo marked thorn to sell at $25.00, which allows us
only a fair legltlmato profit. Now, during tho course of tho season wo dispose of 45 of theso Bulls which nets us a gross profit of $270.00;. tho flvo re
maining suits we put on salo nt Half Price, or $12.50. On tho firo we loso $:12.50; deducting this amount from tho profit niado on the suits sold nt rcg
' ular' prices, leaves ub a net profit of $237.50 on tho lot. Tho policy of this storo prohibits the showing of none but present soason merchandise realis
ing this, we aro compelled to adopt measures that will effect an absoluto clcaranco so that only complete and now lines will bo shown at tho opening oC
any season. All garments romalnlng in Btock nt the closo of our Half Prico Salo aro disposed of to out-of-town dealers. Tho loss Involved In soiling garments
at Half Price is turned Into profit an hundred fold by the confldcnco It creates with tho buying public in causing them to npprcclato the fact that a Half Prico
Sale at this storo Is genuine and that a Half Prico Sale hero means an absoluto rlddanco of all brokon lines nnd,tlioreforc, nssuro them of seeing only now

for an second-hand automobile.
Mr. Brandes satisfied himself with tho
thought that almost any kind of a farm
In Oklahoma was worth as much as the
car, but he felt quite .sure that this .par
ticular one wasn't worth much more.
After filing away-tbe deed he dismissed
the deal from his mind. He had never

JOHNSON DRAINAGE DISTRICT
CLOSING BOND CONTRACT
TBCUMSBH, Neb., Jan. 17. (Spoclal.)-
Secretary Kobert Lempka of drainage dis
trict No, 1, Johnson county, Nebraska,
departed for Chicago yesterday' to Inter
view the Hanofiett Bond company of that
city, the concern which contracted for the
drainage district bonds In the sum of
$100,033.14. The bonds were sold In de
nominations of 125,000, and Inasmuch as
the ditohlng contractors are here pre
paring to build their dredges, the djain
ago district officers want to learn about
the first payment on the bonds, which
Is slated for February 1. There Is no
doubt as to the Hanchett company tak
ing the paper, hut the concern wanted
more history of the bonds and Mr.
Lemplca went to Chicago prepared to sat
isfy their every desire. As the dralnaKS
work probably will be completed this
year It Is presumed the whole amount
of tho bonds will be used during the
building period. The Hanchett company
agreed to pay a premium of $1,258 for the
bonds, with accrued Interest, and 4 per
cent. Interest will be paid on dally bal
ances at the district's depository for
funds not yet used. Within a few days
the drainage district officers expect o
begin the work of condemning right-of-way
for' the main drainage ditch, this
work to begin near Sterling, where one
of the dredges Is to be erected.
