Postmaster General Payne's suggestion that the time la at hand for a 2-cent postage between tho United Statea, Germany and Great Britain, although the subject oi favorable comment In the press, Is not regarded at the ministry of posts as feasible-. Buch a proposal In the International Postal congress would bring out an Instructive interchange of views, but the German postal delegates would be against Its adoption. Were Ger many to reach a 2-cent agreement, it would be expected also by its neighbors, Switzer land, Belgium, France and Holland. Con sequently the question must bo considered by Germany as a proposal for a one unit postage with all countries.

B I WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY Considering that tho Nebraska Federation of Women's clubs will elect almost a com plete set of new officers at the coming annual meeting, to be held at Seward October U to 15, there is very little gossip heard regarding possible candidates for the first office. Mrs. W. E. Pase, having served a second term, Is not eligible to re election as president, and while last year at- this time, when It was rumored that she would decline a second nomination, there were several candidates mentioned Immedlatily, there is at present but one woman whose name is being generally talked that Is Mrs. H. M. Bushnell ot Lincoln. Mrs. Bushnell is one of the best known clubwomen of Nebraska being prominent in her home city and alSb well known from her service as an officer of the Nebraska Federation and ns chairman of one of Its standing committees. It Is very well known among the members of the Nebraska delegation at the St. Louis bi ennial, that a prominent Omaha clubwoman was approached by delegates from various parts of the state and urged to allow her name to be used us a candidate, but this she refused to do, maintaining that that office still belonged outside of Omaha, and because having recently' been released from the duties of a most responsible club office In Omaha she had no desire to assumo the duties of the state. However, It Is proba ble that should she bo persuaded to be come -a candidate, she would have the support of almost all Omaha women, even though they have objoctcd In the past to this office being awarded to this city. Mrs. Bushnell Is very popular among local club women nnd having been a frequent visitor here, is very well known and her candi dacy meets with almost general approval. The following women have been ap pointed members of the house and home committee of the Woman'a olub, under the chairmanship of Mrs. Arthur Brandels: Mra. C. H. Townsend, Mrs. Chnrle Black, Mrs. Frank Curmichel und Miss Corlnno Paulsen. Tho first d'lty of the committee will be the planning of the entertainment of Mrs. Nellie Kudzle Jones. Mrs. Jones will address the club at its second open meeting, the Monday following tha state meeting at Fremont and the club will give un Informal reception In her honor. This will probably follow the club meet ing. The directory has requested that every member make an effort to exercise her membership privilege aa early in the yeur as possible. It is especially desired that as many as possible will propose the name at the first meeting. It is said that Miss Mary Reynolds of Sibley, la., haa finally decided to go to China, to becomo English tutor to the nephews of the empress und that Bhe will start early next month. Miss Reynolds received her appointment by Imperial do ciee, having been nominated by the presi dent of Carleton college, Northfleld, Minn., where she graduated last June. She will make her home in Pekk and will go to and from the Imperial palace dally. Her contract calls for a term of two years, Jtnttt a possible extension of three years.

Calvary clover leaves, like those of other clovers, are trefoil, embodying the doctrine of the Trinity, the central truth of Chrls tlantty. . Soon after the plant begins to ap pear above the ground a deep spot of red- like blood appears upon each division of the leaf, but this disappears after a few aVeeks. During the day the tiny leaflets form themselves into the shape of a cross, and at the tun sinka to rest the leaves again fold together, It 'hat been suggested aa if in prayer. In due time the biussom be comes a small yellow flower and then a spiral pod covered with thorns. In ripen ing the llowert Interlace, and In their pe culiar poaltiona many persons think they can detect the outline of a crown. Tradi tion says that It Is good fortune to plant the seed of the Calvary clover on Oood Friday. TWO ARE INJURED BY FIRE Woman and Child Jump from Kerond tttory ot tw York Tenement.
