For the lut three sessions the state

I7J.C00 for the purpjso of helping each
school district In' the Btalo to hold at leant
five months of school. No money spent
by the state Is more deserved nor more
appreciated by those who receive It than
this. Without It this year there are 316
rchool districts and about 3,000 children
who could not have had even this short
term of school. Conditions In theso dis

does not take long to convince a visitor
that the aid Is given to a most worthy

I do not believe nny one has yet sug
gested "Qulvcra" aa the name for the
"Qulvera" has already become famous
as the domain of King Ak-Sar-Bcn, and
this, namo would readily be recognised
b,y prominent officials and cltttuns of
every state In the union. The name Is
dignified, euphonious and would be a
fitting tribute to the progressive spirit
ami wonderful influence exerted for
years by Omaha's organization of busi
ness men, who have accomplished so
much In placing Omaha In tho front rank
of progressive cities.
C. A. BCmiWEIA.
I respectfully submit this name for
the new hotel, "Holdings." It represent
the holdlnga of the people of Omaha and
the gateway of the weat.
In 'naming the new liotel I would sug
gest "The Phoenix." The meaning of the
word phoenix s a fabulous bird that rises
out of its own ashes, hence the emblem
of Immortality. Surely this $1,000,000 struc
ture in all Its beauty and grandeur, will
rise, up and perpetuate the names of
Omaha's most honored citizens. It stands
as a monument to the dead anil an honor
to the living. When the thousands of
electric lights are turned on In tho city
of Omaha none will thine out In greater
significance than "The Phoonlx," the em
blem of Immortality.

Dr, Thwaites to Be
Speaker for State
Dr. Ueuben Gold Thwuttes, president of
the Mississippi olley Historical usho
elation, und secretary and superintendent
of the Wisconsin State. Historical society,
who is to bo chief speaker at the annual
meeting of the Nebraska State Historical
toclety January 14-16, is perhaps the most
widely known historian In the United I
States. Jrof. H, Monro Stephens of the !
University of California suys of him: I
"Inoontestably the most Industrious
and accomplished editor of American his
torical documents is Dr. Reuben Gold
Thwaites. His industry Is proved by the
magnificent series of seventy-one volumes
of 'The Jesuit Relations,' thirty-one vol
umes of 'Kttrly Western Travels,' the
original journals of Lewis and Clark In
eight volumes. No such output has ever
been made beforo by an American histori
cal scholar, and yet tho quality Is equal
to the quantity. Dr. Thwaites Is a great
deal more than a mere proof reader,
though the accuracy of his proof reading
shows his long training as a newspaper
man,; he Is much more than a compiler
of foot notes and a master of cross
references, though he Is a famous
librarian and has been president of the
American Library association; he Is n I
more highly trained historical scholar
and has produced more to aid American
historical scholarship through his chosen
field of western exploration than any
American professor of history, although
he did not have a regular college course
and does .not hold a university professor
ship: and his well earned reputation rests
upon the solid basis of work achieved.
His modesty is such that It Is dlffloult to
get the details of his career, and although
one of thn most popular men In the United
States In both of his professions of his
torian and librarian. It Is difficult to J
glean from acceoslble works of reference '
the details of his career."

stop shampooing with soap, ine ireo
alkali in soap irritates the scalp, makes
the hair streaked, dull, coarse und brittle.
Shampoo with a teuapoonful of canthrox

This shampoo lathers abundantly, dries

Avoiding rich, solid foods and taking
plenty of exercise will AHslst greatly in

Nodle: To strengthen your weak eye
and rid them of that dull, overworked
look, put In each eye daily two or three
drops of a fine, strengthening tonlo made
by dissolving an ounco of crystos in a
pint of water. This eye-tonic Is very
soothing and strengthening, and by using
It regularly, In a short time It will make
your eyes strong, clear and sparkling. I
find It unequuled aa a good eye-tonic for
treating weak. Inflamed, expressionless
Inez G.: Don't worry; almost every

follows: In 1 pint water dissolve 1H cup

Is not a fat-builder, but a bust-developer,
and will energize the stunted tissues and
permit them to attain their correct pro
portions. Mrs. W. : Long, curly lashes lend an
added touch to feminine beauty. Get from
your druggist a small, original package of
pyroxln and apply a little of It at lash
roots with thumb and forefinger. Thle
makes them grow long and curly. Thin
eyebrows should have pyroxln rubbed on
them with finger-end and they will come
in thick and glossy. Use caution not to
get any where hair is not wanted.
Jessie H.: So mo sage dressings are
beneficial to tho scalp, but I never recom
mend thorn on account of the danger of
staining or discoloring the hair. If you
want a good, dependable remedy for dan
druff, Itching scalp and falling hair, try
an ounce of quinzoln dissolved in one-naff
pint of alcohol. (not whiskey) and one-half
pint water. This will put your hair and
scalp In a healthy condition. -Apply the
tonlo twice a week, rubbing It gently Into
the hair-roots, It Is free from oil and
makes a fine dressing for the hair. I
know of many who were troubled with
"hopeless" cases of dandruff and falling
hair that found this on Ideal tonic.
Zoa: You must not uso face powder If
you want a smooth, rosy, healthy com
plexion. Powder enters the pores, en
larges them and eventually causes coarse,
sallow skin then wrinkles. To have a
smooth skin that looks natural and not
artificial, you must use a lotion. Hero Is
a splendid recipe for an Inexpensive one.
Got from any drug store four ounces of
spurmax, dissolve it in a half-pint hot
water (or witch hazel) adding two tea
spoonfuls glycerine. Apply this lotion to
your face, neck and arms, rubbing gently
a few moments and it will lend a most
charming tone to your skin. This spur
max lotion removes the shlno and gives
a clean, clear, wholesome look to a sal
low Bkln. If you desire a really charming
complexion, taboo face powders. They
rubioff too enBlly and glvo that readily
noticeable "painted" look which this lo
tion does not. This lotion Is fine for cold
sores, chaps, pimples, and a sure protec
tion to a delicate skin from tilting winds
and changes of weather.
