THE OMAHA DAILY REE: WEDNESDAY,
JULY 15, 1903. KRL'C PARK WILL BE CLOSED rut Oat of Business, Sayi Manager, by Court Decision. OTHER INTERESTS ARE AFFECTED W. W. Cola Say that Concession Will Be Relocated ooa M Possible In Cities Klarirkrrp. Krug Tnrk will clone permanently next Ha'.urriay. The announcement wan made Tuesday by W. W. Cole, manager, ns a re unit. It Is asserted, of the decision of Judge Kennedy holding the liquor license voted by the Benson Ullage boerd was Illegal. Mr. Cole said he would begin at once to rclccats the. various concessions In otl.iT rltloa ami to close up the buslne hero. Mr. Cole declared the park could not re operate profitably without the sale of liquor. To appeal the rase to the su premo court" would do no gnod, a the court could not pare on It until fall. If a new license were applkd for In the name of art lr,dl1dnal It would have to rm advertised four week and then the r munstrsnee, he asserts, probably would i renewed. He ' sitserted the park lost J10.OO0 InM year and ia already $14,000 behind tl. Is year, t'ndor the clrcnrnstances he be lieved It would be unwlre to continue the existence of the. park without the license "We started to give Omaha a high class amusement reeort, accepting a a prece dent tin famous Kroll gardens of Berlin. Germany." Mid Mr. Cole, discussing the closing of the park. "We have followed the rnanngTncnt of the gardens aa near an Is possible to do ln.thls country, by refraining from putting on a cheap class of amusements and c-itch-prnny devices so prevalent In other parti of the Vnlted States, bring satisfied to build up the park on strictly legitimate lines, using music and hlffh elnss concert features aa the at tractions. Kept Faith with People. "All our sensational features have been very original and I. ran truthfully aay that In my t.hlrty years' of experience there has been no other amusement enterprise In this country thnt has kept closer faith with thn public than . wo have. At all times our object has been to establish a resort to advance the Interests of Omaha. How we,ll wo .hnvo succeeded can better be Judged by the thousands of Omaha's best citizens who have been regular attendants. It has been the only place of the kind where women and children have ever been able to go In Omaha so far as I can rec ollect and (eel perfectly safe from moles tation. The expense of maintaining a police department for this purpose has been very large. Basing It upon a busi ness proposition we have hardly been Justi fied, but nevertheless so lung as I am connected with an amusement enterprise this feature will be maintained. "We are announcing the permanent clos ing of Omaha's Polite resort, Krug park, without the slightest malice. It la an In disputable fact that no summer resort can prove successful and be denied the privi lege that must necessarily be given It. The closing of the refreshment part and de nying the public In general and the working class In particular their right to seek their pleasure for themselves and families on Sundays as It might suit their Individual taslo, would rrove an unprofitable venture, as It has the world over, "I am free to admit that there are a few people with probably unworthy motives, who aro ever ready to impose upon the laws and use them for personal gain. This la unfortunate and I believe that the sooner the commercial Interests of any community concentrate their energies and Improve conditions the better It will be for all cltiscns. "We have 225 persons employed In con junction with the Investment of many thousands of dollars of out-of-town capital, to ray nothing of the Western Amusement company's Investments, and it requires a En at deal of money each week to operate the Institution. "All of Omaha's business Interests profit by the operation of tho rnrk. The street railway company cart "figure on 600,000 round-trip fares each year. The electric light company profits materially by sell ing the Illumination,' and, In fact, every business house In the city cernes In for a general profit on account of the park's existence. Fully Concluded to Close. "Wo havo fuliy concluded to close the park permanently and as fast aa we can ro locato the concessions In other cities we shall do so, fully realising there Is not a field for us In the city of Omaha. I think tha entire city will vouch for the fact tho pa rk has been conducted well within the meaning of the law. We closed at 11 o'clock. We pay a full year's llcensa for about three and a half months' business privilege and not at any time have we tried to take advantage of undecided legal points. Our action has been fully considered and as elf-prescrvation Is the first law of nature we have decided to adopt It. We would rather take our losses now than wait un til the end of the season." The point upon whk-h Judge Kennedy passed that a corporation cannot hold a license to sell liquor was pasgtd on once before by Judge Troup, but he held con trary to Judge Kennedy's holding. It was In the suit of Schllt Brewing company gainst Kiel about three years ago that fudge Troup, among other points, decided the brewing company could hold a license. The esse went to the supreme court, but wus decided on other point and the ques tion In controversy now was not paiscd upon. The Krug park case will not be carried to the supreme court, but there Is a caso pending now In which the point Is raised. The case was brought from Hastings. Judne Corcoran decided a corporation can hold a license and an appeal was taken from his decision. ome Corporation Affected.

When w com to talking about modern endurance races for sport or for pelf, the present riders can scarcely hold a candle to F. X. Aubrey, who used to do some great stunts cn the roof of a bronco, in I860 he made a bet that he could cover the distance from Santa Fe, N. M., to Independence, Mo., over the old trail in eight days. It is 7CJ li. lies between the two points as the freight caravans traveled it, and by that route on a wager of $1,000 Aubrey was to ride. He succeeded in winning, making the des tination, the Jones house In Independence, three hours before the expiration of that time. During this his first ride he killed a number of horses,, the d ath of one when within twenty-five miles of Council Grove lomielllng lum to .walk to that place wr.eru he obtained another animal. This feat of Aubrey was regarded as the greatest rlda ever made by any one In ancient or modern times, and he became the hero of the Incipient border town, Inde pendmce, where he was feted and made the lion of tho day. His fame spread throughout the entire west, including Cal ifornia where he is well known. Althoimh reople marveled much at the wonderful endurance of the man and the remarkable time In wheh he had made the trip, st 11 Aubrey himself wns not at all satisfied with It. He determined Jo break that record, and the following season made another wager of JT'.O'O In gold that he would do It. He accomplished his recorJ breaking dash across the great plains In the marvellous time of only five days and thirteen hours. His objective point was the same hotel to which he had ridden on his former trip. On tills ride, when ho reached that hos telry, he was p?rfectly exhausted and In fainting condition, his horre quivering Trom head to foot, and white with foam. Aubrey was lifted from the back of the animal by h's friends artd carried Into h's room In the house, where he lay In a complete stupor for two 'da s. Plx horses, which previoua to starting from Sunta Fe had been sta Mrned at distances varying from twenty five to fifty miles along the route, fell dead under him, so terribly fast had he forced them on. He ro'scss d a beautiful mare. Nelly, a favorite animal, noted for speed and en durance, but she expired at the end of the first lit miles. On his last great trip he rode t'ay and night, stopping only long enough to !-ap from his tired animal and spring cn to a fresh one. He made more than ano miles every twenty-four hours, and all the "sleep he took asgregated but three hruis during the entire five days.-Denver Field and Farm. . - KNEW WHEN HEHAD ENOUGH Chlcasro Man strove for a Million Dollars, Got It and Then Qnlt, Christian Eurcky died In Chicago the other day. He was once pretty wall known In Chicago, though we doubt If his name means anything outside of that city. But Christian Uur'ky was a sensible man. Ho knew when he had got enough and he knew that when, he had got enough It was time to quit. It all happened In this way: Before the big fire In 1S71 he and Ed Milan opened a lur.rh room In an old box car In Madison street, Chicago Burcky did the cooking and Milan waited on the customers. Their enterprise was regarded rather as a Joke at the start, but both young men were serious and worked with unflngglng seal. "We won't quit until we get a million," was their motto. Within a couple of years they had accumulated sufficient money to furnish a basement In Madison street, near Clark. After the fire they moved to Nos. 114 and IK Clark street, and opened what Is sal.1 to havo beon Ihe original first class res taurant In Chicago, During the1 latter part of na. they began taking stock and count Ing cssh, They discovered their Jolrt riches totaled a little over fl.Oun.ono snd the next day the place was offered for sale. Burcky never again entered any business. And that was. why Bureltly was sensible. It was likely, too, that he was sensible enough not to be too much of an Idler, not enough so that the rusted out. It is fully us unwise to rust out as It is to rush out There ought to be a lelkurely period of going out for everybody; but unfortunately there Isn't. Chicago Tost. Caasaltatiai toll ExsjBlattiaa.

NOTIFICATION TO BE AT LINCOLN Patieommlttee of Eleven Will Meet In Chlrnao Jalr 31 to "elect Chairman of National Committee. (From a Staff Correspondent.! LINCOLN. July 14.-(Snrcial. William J. Bryan's national democratic committee called on him this morning and after listen ing to what he had to say fixed the date for his official notification of his nomlna tlon for August 12 at Falrvlew. The com mlttee discussed every phase of the coming enmpn gn and then adopted a resolution providing that no contribution of over tlD.OOO would be received from any one person and all contributions over $100 would be publlshed from time to time. Thus the "psrnmount" Issue of the campaign will bo the publicity of campaign contributions. A subcommittee will select the officers of the committee. John W. Kern, vice presi dential nominee, will not find out about his nomination until after James 8. Sherman, the republican nominee, has received his diploma from his notification committee. A notable feature of the meeting was the passing of Mayor Jim. His place has been taken by P. L. Hall of Lincoln. The new member of the committee Jumped at one? Into the lime light by being made n mem ber of the subcommittee of tho national organisation which Is to announce Mr. Brj'Bn's choice for chairman and secretary of the nationnl body. This may mean that Mayor Jim will still be cared for some way, though he Is clear out of the running for chairman of the national committee. But Mayor Jim la still a high lord even though shorn of official title so far as the committee Is concerned. He was addressed by John I. Martin as "Governor Dahlman" right In the face of Mr. Bryan and the latter made no objection. Mayor Jim was asked this question: Will you be the chairman of the national com mittee?" He didn't even hesitate when he replied: "I will not be chairman of the national committee." The subcommittee of which Tom Taggart is chairman will meet at the Auditorium Annex In Chicago July 25 to select the officers of the national committee. This subcommittee Is composed of the following: Thomas Taggart of Indiana, Dr. Hall of Nebraska, Norninn E. Mack of New York, Governor Otdxirne of Wyoming, George W. Greene of Rhode Island, T. E. Ryan of Wisconsin, Joseph Daniels of North Caro lina, M. J. Wade of Iowa, J. W. Tomllnson of Alabama, Nathan Cole, Jr., of California and W. Tate Biady of Oklahoma. The Parnmoant Issue. The "paramount" Issue adopted by the committee is as follows: Resolved, That the democratic national committee, in pursuance to tne pie ig s given in the national platform recent y adopted at Denver, announces that it will accept no contributions whatever from cor porations; that It will accept no Individual onti lbutlona above $10,000 and that It will make publication before the election of an Individual contributions above $100, contri butions received before October 15 being f ubllsbed on or before that date and con nbutlons r.c Ivtd after that rta.e being published on the date upon which they are received, and that no contributions abov; $K0 shall be accepted within three days of the election. The special train bearing the commit tee members reached Lincoln at 8 o'clock this morning. Brother Charlie and Brother-ln-Law. Tom Allen were there arul at once hustled the delegation Into street cars and headed them for University Place. It was right here that George Washington Berge dropped out of the running. "I haven't had breakfast," he said, "so I won't take the car ride." Whether the other members of the party had eaten was not discovered. Mayor Jim, however, stuck to the bunch und went to the college town where hard water Is none too soft for the Inhabitants. Tom Taggart went and so did Roger Sullivan. This side trip was taken In or der to give the Bryans a chance to got up and "red" up the house. Lunch at Falrvlew. The party was met at Falrvlew by Mr. and Mrs. Bryan and everyone stayed to lunch. The dining room seats only forty five and a second table load had to he served. Mr. Bryan In his apology for having such a small dining room said the one at t he White House was larger. Mr. Bryan and his old friend, Tom Tag gart had aeveral conferences and each looked full of harmony. Roger Sullivan was given a glad hand and he seemed harmonized. Jim Reed of Kanaus City was also there, but he was so troubled about whether to go on tho stump for Cowherd for governor of Missouri he had little to say to anyone. All In all It was a nice harmony meeting and not once wns the old fight between Mr. Bryan and Roger Sullivan mentioned and no one talked about French Lick Springs, and even Ouffey of Penisylvanla seemed to bi? forgotten. Most of the committee men got out of town during the afternoo:i lull of enthusiasm and predicting demo cratic suci ess and promising to organ z: Bryan clubs. Incidentally it is supposed that $10,00 resolutions will prevent Miyor Jim and Brother-ln-Lnw Tom from getting r.ny more $15,0ii0 bunches from New York. Bryan himself proposed the resolution, or rather gave the hunch for It In a speech he made to the visitors. In the party that visited Fairvlew today were the following committeemen: Norman E. Mack of New York and Mrs. Mack, Thomas Tapgart of Indiana. Roger Sulli van of Illinois, t'rey Woodson of Kentucky, O. B. Tucker of Arkansas an1 Mrs. Tucker, J. W. Tnml neon of Alnbtma and Mis.

UHYAX 19 PICKING HIS MAX Mayor Jim Xo l.ousrer Resrarded One st th Possibilities. .(From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. July 14 -(Speclal Telegram Headed by Mayor Jim of Omaha, about thirty members of the national democratic committee, are in conference with Mr. Bryan this morning. In the party are Roger Bullvan. Tom Taggart, the present chairman, and Vrey Woodson, secretary of the committee. Tho committee came over tha Rock Island and reached Lincoln at I o'clock. "Brother" Charlie and "Brother-in-law" Tommy Allen met the committeemen at the train and took them to University Place for a car rlda. This was done so that the delegation, coyjd . get to . Falrvlew at a seasonable hour and lncldutally get some ot the Denver odor out of their clothes. "Tb chalrmsnshlp Is up In the air," said Msyor Jim. "thnt a on ths square." Then the mayor Inquired If any one knew whom Bryan wanted. That was the substance of what all said. It Is a question of whom Bryan wants It was told this morning that Ollle James the Kentucky congressman, does not want the chairmanship. This boomed the atock of John H. Atwood pf Kansas and he Is looked upon as a probable winner. The name of Dahlman continues to be omitted when the list of possibilities Is mentioned and It begins to seem actually as If the Peerless Leader was going to entrust his leading to another and allow the cele brated mayor of Omaha to pursue his phantom of running for governor of Ne braska. M'VANN SAYS GO TO CONGRESS Telia Grain Dealers Legislation Mar Be Xecfminrr on Bill of Lading;. DES MOINES, la., July 14.-(Speclal.)- E. J. McVann, secretary of the Omaha Grain exchange, told the Iowa grain dealers In an address here this morning that unices railroads and shippers got together and accepted the recommendations of the Interstate Commerce commission ..for a uniform bill of lading certain shippers and committees representing largo Interests would have to go to congress and secure Wlslatlon which would compel the adop tion of the uniform bills. The secretary of the Omaha Grain ex change addressed the Iowa Grain Dealers' assoclatton at Its opening session on the subject of the "Uniform Bill of Lading" which Is just now the most timely topic before the shippers of the country. "It may be hard to get the legislation we will ask from congress," he said, "but when we have got it we will have some thing or more than something. The whole matter of hills of lading covering Inter state shipments is In the hands of con gress, and If a simple and practical form could onco be prescribed by law, the states would, undoubtedly, adopt the federal form, and so the whole situation, which Is now so complex and confusing, would be cleared up for all time. I have, how ever, tha greatest confidence that the forms, prescribed by the ' Interstat Com merce commission, will prove to be satis factory. The commission Is an earnest, hardworking body . of men, and, as at present constituted, could hardly be Im proved upon. "But If the new hill of lading Is found to be open to criticism. It will be because of lack of power on the part of tho commis sion, and not lack of earnest consideration and knowledge of conditions. "When shippers and railroads were hold ing a conference on the subject of the uni form bill of lading In Washington last year, every time a railroad lawyer got on his fept, the commission propounded the question to him. "Do you believe that the commission has the power to formulate and enforce a.Cngalnst tha railroads, the adoption of a uniform bill of lading?" and without exception, every one of the lawyers answered that he did not believe the com mission hod any such power." Tariff Leagrue Progress. Mr. McVann was a member of the com mittee of the National Industrial Tariff league which was In conference In Wash ington last October and he has been closely identified with the movement for a bill of lading which meets the requirements of commerce. He said regarding the progress made: "Out of all the discussion, speech making and brief writing on this subject In the pasr four years Irf 'hich I rmd a part have grown the following conclusions: (1) That a bill of lading Is not a negotiable Instrument In the legal sense. (2) That the conditions usually found on bills of lading, placed there by -the carriers In their own Interests, are void If they are not In accord with the terms of the law In the state where the bill of lading Is made, or where they are repugnant to what Is known as common law, which Is the body ot law that Is not expressed In statutory form. (3) That a bill of lading Is a contract of carriage, nothing may be Included In It that Is In contravention of the law as, for instance, an Illegal rate. "I have heard the suggestion made that the grain Interests should have a separate bill of lading applicable to their business. This suggestion probably grew out of the simple form that was formerly used by the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway company, and may still be used by that company for all I know. It Is one of the best hills of lading I ever saw, but It is open to one or two serious objections. The most Important of these 1 the lack of necessity for a separate form of bill of lndlng for the grain business. There Is much to be said In favor of' a special form of bill of lading for a business like the fruit businens where practically every thing shipped is highly perishable and must be given spocial service."

I fell In with a French traveler the other night at the Hoffman House, New York. He had returned from an extensive tour of the country and spoke with more intelli gence than Frenchmen commonly do of alien countries, for your Frenchman Is not a great traveler, and wherever he goes he carries his own atmosphere with him. Yet what my Frenchman said was not pleasant hearing for an American who likes to think well of his country. "I have been In states," he said, "where the law prevents a man from taking his wine at dinner In his inn on the first day of the week. I have been In states where It Is forbidden to sell even soda water or newspapers on a Sunday. In several states the law forbade me to go to the theatre or to a concert on Sunday night. What does this mean? Is It the personal liberty of which I hear so much? Is there any real harm In these Innocent amusements, or are Americans so weak that they cannot con trol themselves and overstep the limits of public decency and morality unless the law restrains them? If that Is the case, and the laws are framed on that account, It is Indeed a eclf-cnnfesslon of lack of char acter and strength of mind and will power." I could only answer that, so far as New York was concerned, he had arrived -ton soon. Here. I admitted, we knew not per sonal liherty yet, except as a name, but there was a movement on foot which would work a great change within a twelve month. "A twelvemonth!" echoed my French man. "Long before that I shsll be once more In France, where we lack many things, perhaps, but lo not require the laws to tell us what we shall eat and drink, and are not condemned to solitary confinement on one day of the week."

FR0GRAM FULL OF THRILLERS "tar Nnmber Is Flight of Automobile Which Tarns ommersaalt ia Air With Fair Occupant. The "world's greatest shows" have come and gone. Tuesday was RlnRlIng day In Omaha and thousands parked the show tents of the five brothers at the afternoon and evening performances and weer entertained, thrilled and delighted wtlh the marvelous acts per formed. Not a seat was empty at the aft ernoon performance and the huge show tent In the evening was nearly full, and none of the thousands of people who witnessed the circus was disappointed. This Is Ringlings twenty-fifth year In the sow business and the silver Jubilee has been made the occa sion for more "thrillers" and "death de fying" acts than heretofore, and through out he performances tthe high standard set by the Baraboo men was kept up to the limit. The circus proper opened with a magnifi cent spectacle illustrating In panoramic re. view. sc,enes of the days of Rome, when the Caesars were In the height of their power, and closed with the sensational ride of Mile. LaBelle Roche in an auto mobllo down a steep incline and the turn ing of a complete somersault at the bot torn. lasting over two hours, there was "something doing" every minute and the scores of clowns weer forced to secure what attention they could while other acts were In progress. The clowns were not used simply to till In the gaps. Trained Elephants, Dosra and Plas Trained seals and wild animals of the forest are not In this year's Rlngllng pro gram, the animal acts being confined to trained elephants, dogs and pigs. Con sidered the most stupid of any animal, M pigs went through all sorts of maneuvers snd obeyed their clown master explicitly Theelephants performed the usual antics with a few new acts added to their pro gram. Lll Kerslake had charge of the plgl while Pearl Souder, James Johnson and George Keetie trained the elephants, twenty-nine of these largest of all beasts composing the Rlngland herd. A trained horse caused much alarm, to the occupants of the reserved seats by kicking a large foot ball with precise aim Into that section. Feats on Slack Wire. The four Jordans received the largest share of applause for their feats on a slack wire high above the ground. They dancd the cake walk, laid down on the wire, swung It far to the sides, and acted on It with as much ease as performers standing on solid ground. Two troups of bicycle riders showed many new tricks on the wheel, contortionists and trapeze perform ers had their hosts of admirers, and the bareback riders thrilled the people with their feats of equestrianism. The Patty brothers had a really new "stunt." They walked on a stage and down a long flight of stairs on their heads, with out touching their hands or feet. The Marnello-Marnltz troupe, "up-side-down' bell ringers, also had an entirely new act Half of the troupe balanced themselves on their heads on the heads of the others and played "I'm Afraid to Go Home In the Dark" by means of shaking their feet on which strings of bells were fastened. There were the Inevitable hippodrome races near the close of the performance the several events Including the Roman chariot and Roman standing races, double tandem race, rough riding exhibition and others. There were eighteen separate displays on the program and not one dull number. BIG "BRAIN IN YOUNG HEAD Two-Year-Old Tot Who Can Repeat From Memory the "Merchant ot Venice." What would you think of a child who at years of age could repeat from memory every line of Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice," rendering It quite as cleverly as a professional reader? No doubt such a claim would arouse con slderable skepticism and would ordinarily be looked upon as the pardonable ravings of an overfond parent. But little Doris Smith of Maiden, Mass., has repeatedly performed this remarkabla feat of memorising and has shown such wonderful ability for her years thst she has awakened no little Interest among her neighbors, who predict a remarkably bril liant future for the little girl. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Smith of 30 Emerald street, ore at a loss to ac count for her wonderful gift, but Say that little Doris, noon after she was 18 months old, developed a remarkable facility for mimicry, and at thnt very tender age was nble to lisp and remember many long sen tences which thry taught her. Today, although she la not quite 3 years old, she has mastered some of the most difficult speaking pieces In the English larpuage, and Is able to tepeat them, al though she does not follow the full signific ance of what she is saying. She has be come familiar with many foreign words of her pieces and speaks them with a faultless accent. "I know hundreds of pieces," she said when interviewed by a Post reporter. "I can say tho speech of Brutus and 'Thans- topf-is' and some Caudle lectures, and the whole of 'Mother Goose' and some chapters firm the Bible, and I know all th popular songs," and then she began to sing and her powers aa a singer are no less wonderful than as a speaker. The child uses language such as few chil dren of 10 years understand. Bhe told me pathetically of i.ome one who had his leg amputated, and said she did not car) for artificial flowers. Mrs. Smith does not try to teach the c'. lid anything, but the littlo one absorbs ull that siie hears. She heard her aunt reciting and resOIng the "Merchant of Venice" and one day surprised the family by repeating It. When sneaking her pieces the little girl makes gestures, showing a rare familiarity with their meaning. In spite of her precnclousness little Doris Is In every way a charming chill and dearly loves to play with dolls. Blie Is often heard telling them stories which sh? builds from her own Imagination. The fame of the little girl as a speaker attracts many visitors to the Smith home end Doris Is always ready to entertain. H;c mother says If the little one takes to the stage when she gets older alie shall en courage her in that profession. lloston Post, SUIT TO RECOVER COAL LAND Government Alleges That Titles Held by Moatana Companies Aro Frandaleat.

On the train with him were several prominent aemocrats, among them Tom Taggart. There was no demonstration at the de pot and few except those that were on the train knew that the candidate was In the station. He was corralled by the re porters as he sat In his seat telling stories, and readily consented to step out side the train to have his photograph tak en. "Make them -a speech," said one of his friends as he started out of the car. "Not If I can help It," he answered. At his request he was allowed to get off on the opposite side of the train from the depot and patiently stood while the photographer took two or three snaps at his face. "I can't s,ay who will be chairman of the national committee," he said In re sponse to a question. "Mr. Bryan and I did not discuss that much. We will leave It entirely to the national committee. The committee will meet July 25. and will decide on a chairman then.' No, I can't say what Mayor Dahlman'S chances are. I am In no position to discuss the chairmanship as that Is a matter entirely In the hands of the committee." Mr. Kern said he would make an exten sive campaign trip over the country, but declared he could go Into no details for the contest. "We haven't decided on plans for the campaign yet," he said. "The committee will take that up and will decldo what course we will take." At this point the train started to move and the vice presidential candidate swung onto the platform with an agility that be lled bis fifty years and hs gray hair. Mr. Kern Is a man of modest demeanor and gave evidence of one qualification at least of a good campaigner. He can re member names and incidents. H. T. Mc Calg of Omaha Introduced himself to Mr. Kern as the son of an old schoolmate of his, now Mrs. John McCalg. When he heard Mrs. McCalg's maiden name he smiled and said: "Yes, I remenicer her well." Then he recalled some of the nicknames she had gone by while a girl. He also remembered some of their mutual friend and chatted for a few minutes about what had become of them. He and Mrs. Mc Calg had been friends In Warren coflnty. la., where they both lived a number of years ago. Rome Authors Stick to the Pen. Perhaps you did not know that a great many authors have their assistants whom they term amanuenses. A volum inous writer was expatiating on the ad I vantages or employing an amanuensis to save the time and trouble of writing. "How do you manage It? I never tried dictation," said a veteran of the pen who had made himself famous and poor by his pen. "Why, I walk about the room, kick ing over a chair now and then, jingling the keys In my pockets, smoking a cigar ette and dictating to a very clever fel low, who puts down what I say In most correct style. All I have to do Is to look over the manuscript and then send It to the press." Our veteran writer, whose name Is not to be mentioned, was delighted with the Information, and desired his friend, the voluminous writer to let him try his amanuensis. Surely. The latter waited upon him with pen. Ink and paper, and got ready to Jot down great thoughts. The v.tfran raced up and down the room many times, pulled at his beard, Jammed his hands In his pockets, tapped himself on the brow, took a drink, lit a pipe, and broktt a few pieces of bric-a-brac. After racking hi brains to no purpose for half an hour he handed a 15 note to the iman Increasing The demand is constantly in creasing for Flavoring Vanilla Extracts Sa This is accounted for by the fact that Dr. Price's flavors are just as represented true to nature, made from the finest fruits, of deficate taste, and of the greatest tzcDgtttainabIe.. m yjykisi Suit 4& M'Sm Cases.... - Xnd., A-1C98.

FOR TIIE BUSY WOMAN Complexion Treatment That Requires Only a Fen Mlnotri, Writers of articles on the care of the complexion seldom take Into consideration that the average woman has something to occupy her time In addition to exercising, massaging and going to beauty specialists. Some suggestions are perfectly ridiculous as, for Instance, one in an eastern maga zine, which recently advised every woman to spend two or three hours dally on horse back. On the other hand, here is a pimple recipe that can be prepared at. home and whose application requires only two or three minutes dally. Obtain at your drug store two ounces of Rose Water, one. ounce of Cologne Spirits and four ounces of Ep potone (skin food). Take these home and put tha Eppotone in a pint of hot watVr (not boiling) and after dissolved strain and let cool, then add the Rose Water and Cologne 8r'v-its. The dally use of hla simple and harmless face wash tones up tha skin and restores the bright, rosy com plexion of youth. The Eppotone prevents or removes freckles, tan and sunburn.
