Omaha, Neb,, March 28.���Fifty-two
funerals silently winding their way to
cemeterli s brought home with greater
force to the people of Omaha the full
realization of the extent of the Sunday
tornado. All day long, as fast as the
hearses could deposit their grim car-
goes of bodies at graves, a continual
death procession was kept up.

before had served as death vehicles
for negroes were In many cases pressed into service by mourners of white
families. Color, creed and nationality :

Stances where entire    fayiilies    were
killed or where more than one mem-
ber of  a  family awaited  burial,  one j
funeral service was held.   Five bodies
of   negroes,   killed   ln   a   pool   room,,
were buried at the one time by a fra-

The double funeral of Mrs. Hose

The question of buying hone -grown
foodstuffs and It. C. manufactured
goods was thoroughly discussed by
the members of the Trades and 1-abor
council at Its bimonthly cession last
evening, more light lining thrown on
the subject from tx consumers viewpoint, the final vote being in favor or
���x civic commission agency.
The discussion arc re from the reading of a letter from the Westminster
Progressive association asking tbe
members to consider the scheme or
forming a B. C. Prodi-oe league.
Delegate Grant opened Uie firing-
by advocating the operation af a civic
commission agency run in connection
with the city market, the charges
made being just sufficient to cover tbe
expense cf operation, such as payment of salaries.
He was ln favor of giving the farmers of the Fraaer valley and tbe fruit
growers of the Okanagan conntry support if the move would benefit the
consumer residing in New Westminster and vicinity.
Delegate Grant did not mince matters when he commented on the alleged action of the commission merchants, whom ho declared bad a regular monopoly on the business, regulating prices Jurt as they saw fiL He
cited instances where the produce men
attended tlie weekly market in this
city and bougbt up all the produce before the cctiEurners had a chance to.
make a purchase so that the latter
were compelled to pay Om same price-
as exiBts in the stores.
He movov! that the Progressive association be notified of the receipt of
the letter and that the Trades and Labor council stand in favor of a civic
commission aguncy.

London, March 26.   Th" uewesl of
1  European countrlea    is    far   and
���ay  the tiniest.    Its name is Mount
\thos,  and  it only  came  into  exist-
ICI  a week or two ago, when the am-
iassadoi'8 of the powers decided that,
iwever else the  llalkan question is
ttled.  Mount  Athos  Is to be an In-
pendent holy republic.
It   is a mountain  twice as high  as
'en  Nevis, near Saloniki, and is cer-
linly unique among the countries of
iurope in the fact that no woman has
���t foot in it for five centuries, When
erne  years ago,  the Queen  cf Rou-
'lania announced lier intention of "vis-
'ing It, the rulers of the holy moun-
un   threatened   to  commit  suicide If
he p' rslsted.
The new republic, which has a lit-
'i   Beacoast of its own. holds another
������ enrd.    It Is the only s'ate in Europe
hrse  national   Income     Is    obtained
olely, by gelling crucifixes, rosaries,
���unlets and similar holy objects. As
lount Athos contains 21 monasteries,
he export is quite a  large one.
The least known uf the other pocket
ountries  of   Europe   Is  San   Marino,
n   the  heart  i f   Italy.     It   Is  also    a
���mountain,  surrounded  on  three  sides
by   perpendicular  cliffs.    It   possesses
i arly  one  hundred  castles,  with an
Tiny of nbout one man to each castle.    The last  time when San Marino

a   few   remarks   about
Individuality In Children's Clothes.
Tbe nun of every fastidious mother
ls to dress her chill! simply and In a
becoming manner Her clothes should
be u pnrt of ber nml uot obtrude themselves. Some mothers think that if the
child  takes  too   mucb   interest  In   her
clothes she win become self conscious
Ou the other baud, Ibe child who
knows that she Is appropriately dress
cl, as u rule, forKelu entirely about
herself nnd her frock, and It becomes
us much u pnrt of her as her hnlr.
The growing mind of the child la
very sensitive lo Impressions, und If
she learns early In life 'be cnrdluol
principles of good dressmaking lt will
be as easy ami us natural for her to
apply them us she grows up us any of
tbe other lessons of life.
Sensitiveness to Color.
home children are very sensitive to
color. Tbey take a strong prejudice to
certain colors. A red gown ou u very
high strung girl bus been known to
bring on a degree of excitement wblcb
frequently resulted in tuutruma, while
s frui-k of a inure pleasing color would
instil ut l.v soot be and quiet her. This Is.
of course, au extreme case, but there
are mure children than mothers realize
wlin suffer cruelly from being compelled to wear clothes which in color nnd
style ure distasteful tu Ibem. Instead
of trying to force the child to wear
these clothes ns li matter of training,
the situation sbuuld lie studied and tbe
reason found for the child's objection.
Child Must Be Considered.
It taLes. ns a rule. siicU a little time
and so short un explanation lo get tbe
child's point of view Hint It Is a pity
many mothers go uhenrt and order
tbelr children's clothes without a
thought of the Individuality of the
wearer, for children ure so set lu their

Controversy   in   Australia   Over   Real
Meaning of Word "Canberra"���
Name of New Capital.
London, March 26. Australians are
considerably agitated, according to the
Dally Chronicle's correspondent In
Melbourne, by the report that "Canberra." tli" name recently Belected
for lhe new Ideal capital city of the
Commonwealth, really means "Laugh
Ing Jackass."
Archibald Neston, a noted Queensland authority on aboriginal namea,
makes the amusing assertion, after
having stated the derivation of the
word. Those who regard the author's
Verdlcl    as   correct   are   blaming   tbe
government for not taking the pre-
llmlnarv precaution of bavlng aaci r
talned the meaning of "Canberra" before coming to a decision.
The laughing jackass of Australia la era
really not a jackass at all, but a larue
bird which is highly appreciated by
farmers because it kills snakes. The
name "laughing jackass" is given it
because of Its raucous cry which it
emits usually al sunup ami sun-down.
The cry so r sembleB the laughter of
a human being In uncontrolled nice
that H Is almost Impossible for those
who hear it lo retain their gravity.

She always tells what is.
Pain is nature's way of advertising that something is

Bad odour is her way of telling of decay.
Thunder is the advance announcement of a storm.
The cackle of a hen is a top-of-column advertisement

is a bold statement that the advertiser has faith in his
prowess and challenges combat.
The peacock advertises his wardrobe by a full-page

Train Service Severed.
Chicago, March :���;. Tram communication between the cast and west
practically was severed today when

trains, hours late, tried in vain to

"There Is. happily, a way open and i
which will remain open, whereby the
peoples of the world  could obtain almost  Instantaneous mitigation of the :
thraldom in which they arc involving
themselves,    Everything    is relative. I

"The usefulness cf naval invention

of the previous year.    With remorseless persistency scores of millions of
I dollars are being absolutely squandered,   while  every   year  all   the    naval

i of   their  rivals,  but   their  own   fleet
! obsolete  without   adding  to their  re I
' lattve   strength   or    actual    security.
Could any process be more stupid ?

of the great powers is:    lf   for    the

no appeal of weakness panting 1 ehind

address to nil nations and to no
nation with more profound sincerity
than our great neighbor over the
North Ben. Let me say al once nnd
.without reserve how much we welcome the calm friendly tone and tem-
tier if the recent German naval dis
ciissions. Britain and Germany have
the conviction that desire of both Is
to preserve peace."

of the Latin quarter, The founder
of It and of Its slsler institution at
Monte Carlo is Prince Albert, who
has devoted his whole life to the
study of oceanography.
For the study of the sea he has
fitted out two yachts; he has lectured
in all the great capitals of Europe;
he has Interested governments; lie
has established two great museums
and he has conquered the depths of
the ocean.
At first Prance was slow, for some
Inexplicable reason, to take up oceanography, Thanks lo the perserverance
and generosity of the prince, she has
filled out several ships for oceano-
grapbic studies. Tne last lime Prince
Albert gave a course of lectures here
former President I-oubet. and many
members of the government occupied
places on the platform.
Prince   Albert's donation   in   money
toward the Oceanographlc museum In
Paris is the princely sum of $800,000.
He gives this generous gift in recognition of the hospitality with which
France, und especially Paris, receives
all thinkers. Large as is this gift,
It Is small in comparison with the
other things for which the Paris mils
euni Is indebted to the Prince of Mon
aco. nnd for which he has drawn free
ly upon his unrivalled collection at
Mond. Carlo.
At the peril of his life Prince Albert
has persevered for more than a quar
ter of a century until he has at length succeeded in giving samples of
the life Ihat exists in all sea depth?

Effeesenvcit s As a Medium-
Daily Home Confident
(From an address delivered by F. St. John Richards
for the Six-Point League, of New York, before the Convention of the Association of American Advertisers:)
We believe daily newspaper advertising to be pre-eminent because it is universal, prompt, flexible, effective
and economical.
By universal and prompt I mean that any desired selling story can be told in any town or city in any section of
the country in one day by use of the proper choice of daily
newspapers. Any individual in the towns and cities of
the selected territory who does not read some daily newspaper would not be of much use to you or any other advertiser.
Flexible because selected classes in the desired territory can be reached by choosing such papers as directly
appeal to the kind of readers you need. You have no
fear of misdirected efforts.
Newspaper advertising is at all times under direct
control of the advertiser. It may be started tomorrow in
one town or everywhere. It may be stopped as quickly if
need arises. It is most effective when it is timely, and although that phase of it properly belongs to a consideration of proper use of newspapers, rather than a consideration of their value, I cannot resist the impulse to say that
no advertising medium offers such a favorable opportunity for timely advertising as the newspaper.
If a great fire destroys a town, advertisers of fireproof building material tell their story and point a moral
in the same issue containing the news story; a story of a
bank robbery suggests surety company advertising; a hot
summer day with sunstrokes suggests cooling drinks,
while snow and sleet on the streets inspires the automobile
tire advertisers to tell us about wobbly treads, etc.
Now if it is admitted that daily newspapers are read
by everyone worth reaching and that an advertiser may
choose his readers in any desired territory by a judicious
choice of papers, in other words, if you reach them effectively.
Are you welcome visitors or do you force yourself upon them ?
When you advertise in newspapers, do not your readers invite you to come to see them and pay for the privilege of welcoming you?
Do they not usher you into their homes and libraries
and dining rooms and introduce you to their wives and
Can you find a more effective medium than the columns of the favorite daily newspaper?
Can you have a better introduction than that given
by a welcome daily visitor, friend, and confidant?
The effectiveness of all advertising is measured by
the confidence and belief inspired thereby. This introduction by a favorite daily newspaper invites the readers'
confidence for you.
Now as to economy. Newspaper space can be bought
at prices ranging from one cent to one-tenth of a cent per
line per thousand and lower. Probably one-fifth of a
cent would be a fair average. At the lower price a ten-
line advertisement would be carried to a thousand homes
for a cent. But low price does not in itself always mean
If the space bought for one-fifth of a cent were circulated in territory unsuited for any reason to the advertiser's needs or opportunities, that would be a high price.
Newspapers, however, allow the advertiser to select suitable territory, as we have seen, so that the circulation he
pays for is where he wants it, and the low cost thereby
becomes economical.
Now the most amazing thing about newspaper advertising is that its value is universally admitted, although
subconsciously in some cases. Even the most pronounced
advocate of some other medium will turn to the newspaper when he has some acute personal need, which brings
from him instinctive expression and immediate action.
Take the elementary needs of life. If you want a
cook, where do you advertise?
If you lose a valuable dog or your pocketbook, or in
any of the many emergencies where you must have quick
action, which of you would neglect the newspaper?
Is not your business need as important and as urgent
as these?
Is the principle different?
Gentlemen, two and two make four. That isn't new,
but its true. ,, :^'^^EB|liffiiR^BI PAGE EIGHT

Friends are seldom experienced in the conservation of
moneys, though they may be
BUCceBsful In building up fortunes. Moreover, your friends
have their own interests, their
own families to arrange for, and
are quite unable to give to your
estate the care and time that you
would wish.
It was the knowledge of these
facts built on so large a percentage of unfortunate results
that brought the trust company Into being.
The Dominion Trust Company is organized to handle estates. It is equipped for that
purpose���just as a doctor is
