STAMPS ARE IN STATE FIGHT
CfarUtnuui SttPker to fl Sold
Substantial reinforcements in Nebraska's
fight earalnat tuberculosis arrived Friday
In the shape of several " thousand Red
Cross stamps, which will be sold at 1 cent
each, the proceeds going to the treasury of
the state association for the prevention of
the spread of tuberculosis
.The stamps are In the form of a pastor
a little larger than a postage stamp and
are printed In red and green. A red cross
and a holly wreath surrounding the words
"Merry Christmas" for a center for the
stamp and. around this Is printed "Amerl
oan National - Red Cross." Below - the
wreath Is printed "Happy New Year, 190."
The- Stamps are printed 'on the United
States government presses and sold to the
National Red Cross society,' which in turn
sells them to the various state associations
for the. prevention Of tuberculosis. There
M no profit In the sale to anyone, the ooet
only covering the actual cost of making,
the remainder going to the society. From
each 10-cent sale the society derives
cents, and It Is estimated that if everyone
in the state would buy one stamp tuberou
loals would disappear in Nebraska within
ten years. . The stamps will be for sale In
the Cry goods stores, drug stores, court
house, city hall and several office buildings
and mall orders will be received by the
secretary of the association, room 40k, City
hall. They will make attractive pasters
for doing up the Christmas packages' and
Will serve to advertise the crusade If used
as pasters on letters.
During the holidays last year the state
of Delaware cleared by the sale of these
stamps, $3,000 in seventeen days, with
which its tuberculosis day camp was es
tablished. The plan originated in Denmark
four years ago in a crusade against tuber
culosis the government Issuing the stamps
as postage. Eight million . were sold the
first year and the stamp Is now Issued an
nually during the holidays. The American
Red Crosa society made an effort to have
th plan adopted in this country, but the
postal laws will not admit of it The stamp
oan not be used aa postage, but It bids fair
to be popular as a holiday greeting on
much of the letter mall this year. Orders
for over $1,800 worth of stamps had been
taken by the tuberculosis society before
JUMP IN BANK CLEARINGS
Omaaa Moves Ip to Konrteeath Place
Among the Cities of the
Omaha has moved up to fourteenth place
In the bank clearings record of the United
States Instead of tho seventeenth place
which it has held for some time.
The bank clearings show that Omaha has
made a gain of over 26 jer cent, while
soma of the other cities show a loss and
others do not show the gains they did a
couple of weeks ego. Minneapolis shows a
loss of 4.9 per cent and St. Paul a loss of
7.8 per cent and but for the remarkable
spurt of Louisville, which made a gain of
6S.S per cent, Omaha would have been in
thirteenth place. Omaha now leads such
cities in bank clearings as Cleveland,
Detroit, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Seattle,
St. Paul, Buffalo, Denver and Indianapolis
and Is making rapid strides after some of
the largest centers of trade.
This Remarkable and continued Increase
by the Omaha banks Is not the result of
any boom period, but has been a steady
growth, which continued even during the
depression of last fall, when other banks
of the country showed a decrease. This
fact accounts for the fact that some of the
cities are now showing a larger per cent
of increase in comparison with the condi
tions last year. When the financial flurry
struck last fall the banks of eastern cen
ters showed a heavy decrease In comparison
with the year before and when compari
sons are made with that decreased period
the per cent of Increase Is, of course, much
larger this year.
The banks of Omaha and the . business
which Is being done at Omaha as reflected
by the bank clearings are keeping Omaha
la the limelight of the financial world.
CARTER IN COMMAND MONDAY
General Could Not Take Charge with
Only One Alde-de-Camp
Brigadier General William H. Carter and
Mrs. Carter arrived in Omaha Saturday
frcm the east over the Northwestern and
have taken up their temporary quarters at
the Paxton hotel.
Qereral Carter will assume the command
of the Department of tho Missouri Mon
day. He has but one personal aide-decamp
at present, his son, Second Ueu
tenant W. V. Carter of the Sixth United
States cavalry. Lieutenant Carter will net
arrive' in Omaha for several days.
A pleasing Incident of General Carter's
arrival In Omaha was the meeting at th
Paxton hotel between him and 8. S. Peters,
army reporter for The Bee, for the first
time in thirty-three years, when General
Carter was but a second lieutenant 'in the
Sixth cavalry, -and Mr., Peters was a
member of that regiment In Arizona.

"Hedda C.abler" at the Boy4.
Mme. Alia Nazlmova and Company
"Hedda Oabler," a play In four acts by
Henrik Ibsen; under direction of the
Shuberts. The cast:
George Tesman Mr. Perry Lyndel
Judge Brack Mr. Dodson Mitchell
Ellert Ix)vborg Mr. Brandon Tynan
Mrs. Klvsted Mies Florence Fisher
Miss Juliana Teaman. ...Mrs. Jacques Martin
Bertha Miss Evelyn Wledllng
Hedda Tesman ,.Mme. Ksslmova
Attain, with vour nermlBRinn ara will
twelve the discussion of motives and con
cern ourselves with methods. Hedda
Gabler-Tesman is not so much of an ab
normal woman as a lot of folks would have
us think. It Is the fact that she was a
normal woman, surrounded by a lot of nor
mal men, perhaps, that ninde her act as
she did. To have a husband of the quality
of Tesman, to be pursued by a beast of
the aspect of Judge Brack, and to be dis
appointed in a former lover, like Lovborg,
is reason enough for a woman of spirit to
wish to be rid of the world. "A word fitly
spoken Is as apples of gold In pictures of
silver," and that word at the right time
might have turned the current of Hedda's
life and made her happy and perhaps con
tented, but It was not spoken.
Mmo. Nazlmova Is so different in Hedda
from herself as Nora that one wonders if
It enn possibly be the 'same woman. The
Indifference that marked her ns Mrs
Helmer falls away from her as Mrs. Tes
man. and she strives earnestly and suc
cessfully to give the effect on which het
triumph depends. From the bored languor J
oi me iirni aui 10 mo aien aespalr or the
last she Is keenly alive and her every
movement shows she fully appreciates the
task before her. Hedda is not a pretty
part, nor one that appeals from any other
reason save Its acting possibilities. It la
so much easier to present a woman who
can win tho sympathy of all and who will
die amid the general regret of a weeping
multitude. But Hedda la not that sort;
from her entrance, where she studiously
snubs and a minute later deliberately In
sults the simple old aunt of her husband
to the final exit, where she seeks In death
relief from a husband, who only bores hei
because he has no capacity for real de
votion, and a man who professes to lovt
her, but who only seeks to use her to
gratify his vanity, Mme. Nazlmova neg
lects nothing that would make the role
mors Imprssslve. And In the third act,
when she realises her own failure and
sends the one man she might have loved
away to shoot himself and revenges her
self on the woman of whom she Is jealous,
she sounds the depths of tragedy.
If she Is frreat any time, .she Is great
when she hands Lovborg ths pistol and tells
him to "do It beautifully," snd she 1s great
when she kneels before the grate and
throws the torn sheets of his manuscript
Into the fire. Revenge Is not a noble pas
sion at any time; Hedda might have been
a more inspiring figure, perhaps, .had she
resigned herself to what Judge Brack re
fers to as "the Inevitable," and In her abne
gation have bidden Lovborg and Mrs. Elv
sted go snd live happy ever afler. But sh
wouldn't have been human not even a hu
man woman. All of this has been ascribe
at different times to her neurotic condition
to climactic insanity, and several other
things, but It was merely the elemental na
ture of the woman forcing Itself through
the busk of conventionality and taking ac
tion. And Mme. Nasimova does not ob
scure It by any mystery of art; she does
It as naturally, and consequently as effec
tively, as she takes her breath. When It
comes to the end, and she realizes how
completely she has failed with Lovborg
who shot himself In ths bowels instead of
the temple or the breast with ber hus
band, who is concerned with ths adjust
ment of Lovborg s notes and the assistance
of Mrs. Klvsted, and with Judge Brack,
into whose clutches she has fallen, she
moves plteously to the only escape that
seems open to her. Here the right word
from her husband might have saved her.
But ths loving encouragement she had a
right to expect was not forthcoming, and
her philosophy of life was not strong
enough to support her. Poor HeUdal

an institution or finding some way by
which I could earn a living at home.
There are several business women who
live in the same uptown flat house with
me. None of them feels that she Is able
to keep a regular servant and ths cloanlng
woman who came to them weekly never
did what they wanted.
"They were always envying me my neat
rooms. One day the thought struck mo
and I offered to do their weekly cleaning
and mending. My charges were $2 a week
for cleaning and 60 cents for mending. To
tho cleaning woman who always accom
panies me I. pay fl a day besides giving
her throe meals.

'"While my woman scrubs, cleans, airs
and makes tho beds I mend and prepare
the clothes, house linen and personal ap

tains are kept fresh and clean, that tho
china and glass are washed and polished.
I clean the silver and knives snd do the
thousand and one little thing necessary
to make a flat look homelike.
"Fortunately for me my cleaning woman,
who la a middle-aged Swede, la by nature
cleanly and has no Inclination to slight her
work. There are no extra expenses in the
work, which is , one great advantage.
Every flat owner has brooms, brushes,
soap and all other Items necessary for the
work. It Is well, however, for a woman
who wishes to undertake such a trade to
have it understood with her patrons that
in- case something is nested she ran buy.

Although I now trust my cleaning woman
