LINCOLN, Deo. 10.-(Spec1al.)-Thc man who caught John Jones alias William Stcmser, charged with hilling Samuel Leono ot Omaha will not get llio $300 re ward offered by Governor Morehead for the arrest of the man. A St. Louis po liceman made the arrest and tho man is held In custody In that city. Governor Morehead Is going on record In declaring that In tho future no re wards will ho offered by the state only under circumstances whcio It Is espe cially required. He Is of the opinion that when a peace officer catches a man who Is trying to flee from Justice that he Is simply doing his duty and what the people expect hhn Jto do. Sheriff Qus llycrs ot Lancaster county went on. record a few weeks aRo by de claring that he would accept no reward whatever from tho stato or dny other source for arresting a man .wanted for breaking tho laws of the state. "That Is what the people pay me for." said the sheriff, "and there would be Just as much sense In paying the governor some thing extra for doing a part of his duty us a state executive as to Pay me for Colng what, the people elected me to do for tlie salary paid " It has been customary In recent years to call on the state to offer a reward for the apprehension of a fugitive from justice on tho slightest provocation, but hereafter good reasons will have to be given before the reward Is posted.

M. Jfobinson and wm arrival (in being lest'd and inspicled by Prof. Jean Gilbert Jones. :f TERILY co-operation is power. We have seen and experienced its : y power. The success of this sale is the proor. ; ; For here we are announcing the close of this sale this month, when we had not expected to announce it for considerably later. Do' vou know what this announcement means? It means that we have practically sold these three hundred pianos and one hundred player- pianos in eleven weeks. For today although this is the 10th we are certain we shall not have enough instruments left to fill all orders throughout the entire month. That is if customers pour in upon us the balance of the month as they did last week. And it is certain that they will. For when dozens of persons read the heading of this ad and realize that it is "now or never" they will swamp us with applications. We know of enough persons, who have told us they would take a piano or a player-piano before the sale closed, to book orders for a number of instruments now remaining, unsold. Applications for pianos and player-pianos will be received up to close of business Dec. 31st, 1913 This has been decided upon: That we would supply the instruments we now have, out of the original number intended for the sale, as long as they last, then take orders until the close of busi ness, Dec. 31st. In this way every one gets a square deal the late comer, howeVer, may have to wait a few days before having hit piano delivered. In this way, also no one need miss this unparalleled opportunity. For we will make immediate deliveries as long as any instruments remain unsold and as soon as the last one goes we will then take your application and deliver your piano in the numerical order in which it was taken. This, of course, is done subject to the same conditions that have made this sale the most talked-of event in piano circles for years namely that your make of piano has been personally selected by our Mr. W. M. Robinson, general manager of our Piano Dept.; that it will be inspected and passed upon by Prof. Jean Gilbert Jones upon its arrival, and then delivered to your home for a thirty days' trial, which, if unsatisfactory entitles you to your money back.
