crowded 1n by those clubs that pretended
to moat at all. And last evening society
congregated at the clubs to talk It all over.

October 1 dnH October 9 are being named
by tho b'.aybodles as two of the most In

Two-Cent Pottaare with United Statea
Would Mean a General
BERLIN, Aug. 27. 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. Thlt would
reduce the revenues by many million marks,
a reduction in income to which the finance
ministry is not likely to consent. The Am
sterdam Chamber of Commerce not long
ago asked The Netherlands government to
arrange r. domestic rate, but the Dutoh
government declined to act In the matter.

Entries for the horse show to data num

ttables all the way from Toronto, Canada,
on the north to Atlanta, On., on the south,
and from Denver to New York. The Suc
cess of the enterprise, the first ever held
In Omahn, now seems assured. Prepara
tions have been carried forward in every
way satisfactorily, and when the horses
begin to arrive, s.bout the middle of Sep
tember, things will be In shipshape for
their reception.
As an Indication of the war the horse
show Idea is taking in Omaha is the fact
that twenty-four $100 boxes already have
been applied for. The big tan bark ring
In the Auditorium will be finished next
week, after careful and arduous work on
It construction. About" hnlf of the 130
stalls are completed and will be ready for

Horse Show Potters.
Secretary Frank S. Cowglll hat recelvel
a limited number of official horse show
posters, which were obtained at a heavy
cost. For this reason they are being Is
sued to merchants under the express stip
ulation that they are to be placed In prom
inent positions In show windows and kept
there until after the show, when they re
vert to the association. Poster fiends will
thus be kept at arm's length until after
the show, when they may obtain the
trophies by application to the horse show
people. Merchants and others receiving
the posters are required to aign a contract
agreeing to the conditions. Secretary
Cowglll says:
"Omaha is soon to see one of the best
exhibits in fancy and practical horse flesh
and horse equippnge ever made In the mid
dle west, not even excepting the great
shew In St. Louis, where wor.ders were ac
complished. Just like they promise to be
accomplished here.
"The liveliest kind of Interest is being
manifested' by our horsemen and horse
owners, as well as by the cltiiens generally,
and as If In response to nil this enterptls.
It already Is assured fiat the entry list
will be as large as that o. any of the shows
where the affair Is a regular annual event.
"While Omaha alone will furnish a most
creditable display In high-class exhibits,
there are scores and soores of the best
kind of entries assured from abroad. The
prize list has ben most carefully prepared
and Is an especially satisfactory one. It
waa not determined upon until after the
most deliberate consideration of the man

Hair -Vain?
Why not? A little vanity
Is a good thing. Perhaps
you can't be hair-vain, your
hair is so thin, so short, so
gray. Then use Ayer's Hair
Vigor. It stops falling of
the hair, makes the hair
grow, and always restores
color to gray hair.
" I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for
over 40 years. I am now in my 91st
year and have an abundance of soft
brown hair, which I attribute to the use
of your preparation. ' Mrs. Msry A.

SI N. AUarsitittt. 1. C. AYEI CO.. LeweU. Matt,
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
