The bill to bo reported for passage Is a minor measure by Skeen of Nemaha, providing; that polls In country districts shall rmain open to 9 o'clock to give farmers a chance to come In late and vote. The speeches made to the commit tee were by the author of two of the bills and P. L. Hall and John M. De vine, Interested democrats. Mr. De vlne spoke of the wide-open primary, urging It as a fair and wise measure. Evans of Adams, who has the closed primary bill, spoke at length for his own measure. "A p"fty cannot maintain Its party Integrity If outsiders are allowed to come In and choose a candidate for it," said he. "There have been frequent situa tions where the members of one par ty, having no need to vote In their own primaries, because there was no contest, could go Into the other par ty's primary and vote to nominate the weakest man. They could not be accused of anything wrong from their standpoint because they believed that by ruining the chances of the other party and aUUng their own man, they were helping the state. Hut such things ard"-absolutely against the principle of party government." Setting Aside Daylight Law. For the purpose of setting aside the daylight saloon law In all cities over 5,000 Inhabitants, Reagan, of Douglas county, Introduced S. F. 287. The bill provides that In all cities having over 5,000 Inhabitants the li censing authorities may extend the closing hour beyond 8 o'clock, not to exceed the hour of midnight, when petitioned by over 50 per cent of the voters of the city. The bill would ap ply to all the "third" cities In the vetate and to Lincoln, South Omaha and Omaha, but would not apply to any other towns or villages. In many of the places it would apply to it la not believed a petition of over GO per cent of the voters could be obtained. The bill does not call for an election nor does it go Into details as to how the names ot- voters shall be obtain ed or presented to the licensing boards. Stock Yards Bill.

"for this public expression of your confidence," be said, "I am more grateful than words can express. Al ways a men has need 'of the heip of his friends, but occasionally there Is pressing need and, such a crisis having come in my life, you came to my support with a teal, a loyalty, a unanimity which I can never repay.

The meanuro baa been much op posed by state insurance organlsa- tOLS. Initiative and Referendum Gets Unan imous Vote. Without a dissenting vote the initi ative and referendum bill, E. K. No. 1, Introduced by Sklles of liutler, was passed by the senate and has now gone to the house for the approval of that branch of the legislature. Kv ery one of the twenty-six senators present voted for the measure. Six members of the senate, Albert of Platte, Hoagland of Lincoln, Kernp of Dawes and Tlbbets of Adams were absent on committee work In Omaha. Placek of Saunders county was the seventh senator absent. The bill au amended In the senate provides for a 10 per cent petition to Initiate and a 6 per cent petition to refer. The same provisions In the bill as to the Initiative and referen dum applies to the eonstltutl jn and to laws. Straight party votes are not to be counted for or against propositions submitted under the terms of the bill. A majority of the votes cast at an election is all that Is necessary to carry a proiosltion submitted under the bill, provided a proposition receives 35 per cent of the total vote cast at the election. While no senator voted against the bill, Jansen of Gage and Varner of Johnson, said the measure did not meet their approval. Mr. Jansen said: While this measure does not meet with my full approval, opening in my opinion, the floodgates for obnoxious and unnecessary law-making, still obeying the demand of my constitu ents and the platform of the grand old republican party, I vote aye. Mr. Varner said that, while the bill has been much improved by the last amendment by Its author, he was still opposed to some of tho provisions of the- bill and believed that Its enact ment as a part of the constitution, in Its present form, will prove of great er burden than benefit to the great masses of the people of tho state. More Time for Homesteaders. Hougland of Uncoln secured the adoption of a resolution asking con gress to pass the Kinkald bill which seeks to extend the time in which homesteaders will have to pay for the lands they hold under the government reclamation act. The re solution recites that settlers on the land under the government irrigation project in western Nebraska have had poor crops, the government first falling to supply water for their needs and that the land will not be productive until . alfalfa has been grown upon It for three years. Senate Must Hurry. Lieutenant Hopewell took occasion to remind the senate that longer and more frequent sessions would have to bo held if the senate expected to kit very much work done before the usual time for adjournment. Over forty bills are now on general lllo In the senate waiting consideration. Relief for Insurance Agents.

All the other districts get one senator each and all one representative, excepting Saunders, Dodge, Gage, Hall, Adams and Custer, which have two each. Good Roads Measure. The joint committee, appointed sometime ago to draft a comprehen sive system of good roads legislation plunged Into the problem. A joint meeting was hO.d with members of the Nebraska Good Road associa tion, at which the views of that or ganization were presented. Senator Volpp is chairman of the joint com mittee. For Farm Institutes. McKelvIe of Lancaster pushed through committee his measure call ing for n $50,000 appropriation for university extension work. Senate Is for Reciprocity.

Legalizing Indian Marriages. The house judiciary committee has found that the Job of attempting to legalise Indian marriages isn't going to be an easy one. llefore passing upon a bill which proposes to do that the committee will send a subcommit tee to the Omaha and Winnebago res ervations to Investigate Indian mar riages. Permission to do this was granted by the bouse. Indians on the reservation are possessors of consid erable property, and the proper ad ministration of It in the case of dfad Indians is in something of a tangle - 9 I I I, ZZ3 Clara's Questions. "My sister and I wish to have some rallng cards engraved. I used to hear quite frequently the saying: "Never give yourself a title." Is that still In force, or Is It proper for me to have my cards engraved: "Miss Clara Helen Mischler?" My sister is the older. I suppose hers should be just "Miss MlBchler. Can you give me an idea of how a progressive dinner Is con ducted how many courses and what Is served with each? For Instance, for the soup course, Is just one kind of oup served? CLARA. What you have heard does not ap ply to visiting cards for young wom en. The prefix "Mltw" Is always used, to omit It Is very bad form. A progres rive dinner Is arranged by each host ess assuming the responsibility of one course, how many to be decided by those who give It. I think four or five ample. Only one soup is served, but oysters may precede it, adding an other course; then the meat course, the salad and dessert. After dinner coffee with bonbons or cheese and srackers may be still another course. "Nemo's" Questions. (1) What would you suggest for a wedding breakfast for, say, just the immediate family? (2) What is the best form of acknowledging wedding gifts when no invitations, but an nouncement cards only, are Issued? NEMO. For the wedding breakfast have chicken croquettes, hot finger rolls, olives, celery, an aspic salad with hot cheese balls, ice cream, cake, coffee. It makes no difference in the acknowl edgment of wedding gifts whether one has Invitations or announcements. Polite, cordial notes on one's very best stationery should be sent each person who sends a gift and these notes should go Immediately after the Baby's Playground A WALL t . CC WALL et cyj i ir ft mf cajivi.- TO portion off a part of the nursery in which King Baby may be left for short periods to amuse him self unattended, is a very desirable thing, but to achieve this object satis factorily is no easy matter. In our sketch and diagrams one practical so lution of this difficulty will be found, and It can be carried out with little trouble and at no great expense. In the first place, two three-fold clothes horses should be obtained and thin bars of wood nailed In upright positions to the parallel bars of the horses. A glance at the si. etch will explain thjs. Next, two piecos of board should be firmly nailed to the nursery wall, at a distance apart equal to the width ot two of the divisions of one of the horses. The horses can then be fastened with binges to these pieces of wood fixed to the wall, and diagram "A" illustrates this. Tapes should be attached to the posts at further sides of the horses, and it Is an easy matter to place them In the position shown In the sketch and tie the poBts together. When not required, the horses cau be folded flat against tho wall, and diagram "U" shows a ground plan of this, "IU1" representing the board nailed to tho wall, and "HUB" tho horses partly folded back towards the wall. in yoouc v J The newest skirt is the aeroplane model.

"A Reader's" Queries. I have been corresponding with a young man whom I met last summer while on a visit in Canada. He has asked me twice in letters if I would send him my photograph. Not know ing what to do, I write you to advise me. I am not engaged to the young man, but would very much like to win his attention. A READER. If you know the yjng man to be worthy in every way I see no harm in exchanging photographs with blm. Tell him it is something you rarely do and make him understand you are conferring an honor upon him by granting his request. Tell him when he sends you his, you will return with yours. Regarding Party Calls. If one accepts an Invitation to a party from a lady who has not called on you is U necessary and proper to make the usual party call? I have attended a number of parties where the hostess has not called on me, and I am undecided as to whether I owe a party call, in such cases. MRS. G. F. If the hostess enclosed her card with her Invitation, that is equal to a per sonal call; also if she explains to you that she Intended to call before her party, that is sufficient, and you pay the call. If neither of these apolo gies were made I would accept the In vitation, and you do not owe an after call If you go. MADAME MERRI. Diagram "C" illustrates the horses in position, and here again "CC" indi cates the board on the wall, and "CCC" tho horses. When the playground has been com pleted, all the woodwork can be paint ed a nice dark green or, perhaps, a color to match the wallpaper, and when folded back against the wall. will practically take up no space In the nursery and will be almost in visible. The playground can, of course, be arranged In a moment, and the horses, being hinged firmly to the wall, can not possibly fall over. It Is not neces sary that the space enclosed should be of the square shape Illustrated, and the horses can be easily placed In oth er positions If desired, and yet effec tually apportion a part of the floor from which the little prisoner cannot escape and go too near the fire and get Into mischief in other ways. With a few toys spread out on the floor, a little place of this kind will prove a paradise for a small child, who can "make believe" to any extent in this little house of his own, where he cannot possibly come to any harm. Older children might amuse them selves also In a similar playground on a larger scale, and with the help of some old curtains, or a shawl, or rug, wonderful tents and houses can be made. Broom Pincushion. A very dainty novelty Is the broom pincushion. For thin you will require a large flat cork, a meat skewer (a new one, of course) and a few yards of baby ribbon In some bright shade. Cut a small hole in the cork and In sert the skewer firmly through It. Now wind skewer and cork together with tho ribbon until they are entirely cov ered. Two bows on the skewer will hold tho ribbon tight so far. The broom effect you will gain by the pins; they must be driven thickly Into the under side of tho cork, hold ing the ribbon at that point", anil at tho same time giving a very good imitation of a tiny metal broom. TheBe make very nice favors at Informal par ties, club meetings, etc. To Remove Rain Spots. It is said that If any fabric becomes ralu spotted the spots can be removed by ironing tho material on the wrong side, placing a piece ot clean white muslin between the Iron and the gar ment to be pressed. I have never tried the experiment, but pass on ibe Information. , Amy Wt MnoNlii MAKES THE MUSIC MELLOWER Tones 8tralned Through Gas-Filled Pipe Subdued Particularly Adapt ed to Phonographs. For years violinists have been using rosin on their bows to prevent squeak ing. It took a long while for some ge nius to apply the same principle to wind instruments, but at last it ha been done by a New York man, and the apparatus here shown Is the re sult. The process is particularly adaptable to phonographs. A volatile solution of resinous materials is stored in a tank connected with the horn, which describes a complete circle, so that the tones of the phonograph prop er mu?t filter through a great quan tity of the vapor before it reaches the ear. This vapor is of a nonaqueous nature, so that it will not rust in the pipe, but is heavy enough to "strain" Mie music, as it were, and mae the ones much mellower than those wulch Makes "Music Mellower. are brayed forth from the ordinary horn. This process is also said to re duce the vibration caused by the sound waves in the horn, and the tones float out on the air. WIND SHIELD IS ADJUSTABLE Can Be Arranged to Protect Face Without Completely Blocking Cool, Refreshing Air. An automobllo wind shield that can be adjusted so as to protect the face without completely blocking the draft Improved Wind-Shield. which Is so pleasant In warm weather, has been designed by a Philadelphia inventor. It consists of two portions, the upper being adjustable to any an gle, while the lower is rigid, says the Popular Mechanics. When adjusted as shown in the illustration, It effec tively shields the faces of the oacu pants from the wind and flying parti cles, yet a cooling breeze is permitted to pass between the two sections. , BIPLANE BUILT BY A WOMAN Miss Todd of New York Realizes Am bition After Years of Effort Machine Is Success. After years of effort Miss Lillian E. Todd, of New York, realised her am bition when she had the pleasure of seeing a biplane, the work of her hands, fly across the Garden City aviation field, says the Racine Jour nal. After having the machine built numberless times Miss Todd, about four months ago, announced that she had a biplane which she thought would fly. She then tried to get an engine, but met with repeated defeat, as the engines whlc she tried were not satisfactory. Finally she secured a motor that was declared satisfac tory. A good-sized crowd was present to witness the first attempt to fly the bi plane. D. MasBon was the aviator. He ran the machine across the ground, then went Into the air for 20 feet and made a turn at the far end, returning to the starting place, where he was enthusiastically received by Miss Todd and the crowd also. The upper planes of the biplane are shaped somewhat like a bird's wing when In flight, while the lower planes are level. The chassis is about five feet high. An Electric Scarecrow. So familiar have electric bells be come to most of us that even their sound at unexpected times or in un usual places rarely startles us. Not so with birds, to whom the sudden ringing of a bell ou a tree or a post moans something far more uncanny than any scarecrow flapping in the wind. Knowing this, the head master of an Austrian school has patented an electric scarecrow system In which a clock makes the connections at Irregu lar Intervals to electric bells scatter ed over the orchard. This unexpected ringing of the bells, now here, now there, Is said to be quite effective in driving off the birds.

Hooks Arran;ed Over End of Recep tacle Affords Comfortable Sup portMade of Wire. While bath tubs are not designed to be slept in, people have been known to take naps therein, some times with fatal results. For the most part, however, they have been report- Head Rest for Bath Tubs. ed as rather uncomfortable for that purpose. A California man has come to the rescue of those who like to take their ease in the bath by providing a head rest for the tub. This head rest is made of a piece of heavy wire bent and twisted about so as to form a spring support for the back of the head and leaving hooks by which the device may be hooked over the end of the tub. Often persons taking a bath for the stimulation given thoir tired bodies by the hot water wish to He at ease, but have no place to put their head but the cold enamel of the tub. The rest here described solves this problem and shows that modern genius has caught up with ancient Rome at last. MODERN BALLOON GAS BAGS Made of Cotton Fabric Coated With India Rubber to Assure Perfect Impermeability. The gas bags of modern balloons are made of a cotton fabric "coated with India rubber in the most careful manner, In order to assure perfect Impermeability without sacrificing lightness. For all large balloons, and especially for dirigibles, two layers of cloth are superposed and cemented to gether. The outer skin is covered with India rubber on one side only, but the Inner skin is coated on both sides. In German baIloot,s tho inner canvas Is cut straight and the outer canvas Is cut bias. In this construction, gores with angles of 45 degrees are used and the seams are covered which causes a slight Increase In weight. French balloon makers pre fer to cut both canvases straight. Ex periments show that the tensile strength of the envelopes thus made is approximately equal In all direc tions. Each method of oonstruotlon has its advantages and its defects. As India rubber, even when vulcanized, Is altered by exposure to light, the canvas Is colored yellow In order to arrest the violet and ultro violet rays, which are the most active. The pig ment used in France is chromate of lead, which unfortunately must be ap plied to the canvas before it is coated with rubber, and which consequently prevents the vulcanization of the rub ber, because the chromate of lead Is blackened by heat. Ploric acid Is free from this objection, but Its employ ment Is too dangerous. Number of Plant Species. The number of plant species now known is estimated by Prof. Charles E. Bessey at 210,000. He points out that about 18 years ago Saccardo found the number known to be 174,000, and concluded that it would reach 400,000 Including 250,000 fungi In 150 years, by which time botanists may be expected to find all species In exist ence. Linne, 150 years before Sac cardo, knew 8,551 species. Benefits of X-Ray. Whether X-ra:f benefit or harm may depend on the dose. H. E. Schmidt finds that a mild application may stim ulate a sluggish ulcer to heal, but the mild treatment would stimulate also the undesirable growth of cancer, which needs a powerful dose to de stroy the affected tissue.

BEAUTY AS A TOWN ASSET la So Declared In Decision Handed Down by Colorado United States District Court. Within a few weeks, for the first time in this country, the scenic set ting of a town haa been adjudged an asset, and as such, given the protec tion of the United States district court. It was In the case of the Em pire Water and Power company versus the Cascade Town company, says Franklin Clarkln in Success Mag azine. The decision, rendered by Judge R. E. Lewis, at Pueblo, Col., prohibited the Empire Water and Power company "from using, for the purpose of generating power, water which forms the chief scenic attrac tion of the mountain canyon at the mouth of which the town of Cascade is situated." There have been tumults about Ni agara, but they were sentimental. In this case there was the clear-cut is sue as to whether the cascades at the foot of Pile's Peak, giving ths town name and character, could be put to "beneficial use" by harnessing them to electric motors. Condemna tion proceedings 'to divert the water for power were resisted by the town of Cascade, on the ground that diver sion of the water would mean "de struction of the town's chief asset." It was put forward that, in making for scenic beauty, the water was al ready being put to "beneficial use" within the meaning of the law, since it drew many people to the city, there fore was not subject to condemnation proceedings for mechanical power. This was the view upheld by the United States district court SOCIETY MEETS REAL NEED Plenty of Opportunities for Active Wrk In Every Town, How ever Small. Every community now without one should organize a civic Improvement society at this time, for during the winter the most active and effective work is done. At the outset, or in deed at all times, it is best not to cumber the organization with ma.ny rules, else the restrictions will be so many and so hard to live up to that many members become discour aged at the otart. But one r.W Is really needed, and that is every mem ber agrees to devote some tirie per sonally to the work of the society, either In gathering funds, superintend ing work or other active committee duties. There are plenty of oppor ities for active work in every small town, and no resident need go out of his own premises to note some sur rounding spot that merits more or Iobs attention in order to elevate the general tone of the neighborhood. Has your community a live society? If not, cannot you be the organizer of one? Our best communities, those that prove most atractlve to home seekers, have each had a live society for years. Without at least one no place makes a healthful growth. Los Angeles Times. SCORE THE AMERICAN CITY Writers In Success Magazine Assert They Are Rich In All Things Save Beauty. In the last hundred years the growth of American cities has been marvel ous, says Franklin Clarkln in Success Magazine. More than one-sixth of the number of the largest cities of the earth are now American cities. Phil adelphia Is more Impressive, as to population, than Constantinople. Bos ton outranks Madrid, as Cleveland does Hong Kong. Chicago arose from a name to a place all but equaling an cient Tokyo in numbers of people as sembled. They are rich, these young cities, rich beyond the capitals of king doms In every way save that which wins the best of the senses. "Most of our seaboard cities," de clares E. H. Blashfleld, an artist, "are practically far older than Athens or Florence or Venice when they began to clothe themselves with beauty as with a garment. We are richer, more prosperous, more peaceful; we have no soldiers to pay, no enemies to fear, no princes to bribe, no factions to watch; and yet we are not beautiful. We are not even picturesquely and grimly ugly, like London; we are only shoddy and commonplace and lacking in individuality." To Beautify Black Country. It was resolved at a meeting In Birmingham of the South Staffs and Warwickshire Institute of Mining En gineers to support an application by the Midland Reforesting association to the development commissioners for a grant toward the cost of acquiring and planting thirty-six and one-half acres of land nt Morley and 144 acres at Brentlry, near Walsall, says the I.,ondon Chronicle. The association believed that the planting of old col liery sites would help to transform Into beauty what were now serious eyesores, wouhrender, productive lands now useless und find work for the unemployed.
