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.

We Sold and Delivered 107 Pianos and Player
A lt( WaS U . .Vv.'S,
PIANOS DURING NOVEMBER
The Co-operative Plan of Selling a Success
Last month of this great piano sale U
The various makes of pianos for this co-optrativc salt
tccre personally selected by Mr, H'. 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. But come early, if possible, now.
