The home of Joseph P. Meehan, 1966 South Twelfth street, was the the scene of the second act, In which Meehan's wife and daughter were unwilling participants, while the atate penitentiary at Lincoln was the setting for the first act, and ths po lice station of this city furnished the back ground for tha final efforts of F. E. Col bers, who played the role indicated by the name of the play. ' Colbers is said by the police to have been released from the penitentiary only Thurs day, after he had served a year there for a forgery conviction. Pcllce Officer Pszan owskl' of the Omaha department arrested the man about 1 o'clock Saturday morning, soon after he had tried to send a message of some sort through doors and window panes at the Meehan h me by topping on the glasa und peering into the house. Being alone in the hffhse, 4he two women called the police, who took Colbers to Jail. When the Judge' heard the case in court he told Colbers he, would have to postpone the delivery of the message until he com pleted a five-day sentence.

Where ieato Undo Hums railway mall service has be come so popular that at present 17,0 per sons are laklng the examinations in the United Slates to try, for positions. Fifty nine of those were examined In Omaha at the fodtral building Saturday, and another c:ass will take the exams there Monday. The local examinations are conducted by Miss Viola Coffin and E. L. Hoag or the local branch of the civiJ service, "We hava been informed by the commis sion at Washington," said Miss Coffin, "that in view of the length of time neces sary u-nd the Inadequate force of examiners It will be Impossible to complete the rat ing of 'the papers of thia examination within the next six months. The commis sion will notify each competitor of his rating a soon as the marking of the papers lias been completed,' and tha attention of all competitors In the examination should be called to this condition, and they should be Informed that no inquiry should ba made of tha commission in regard to the results of ths examination, as such Inquiries will take up the .lime of. the commission and unnecessarily delay its work. 'Another important matter pertaining . to these examinations,, and, in fact, all ex aminations for positions under tha .civil service, is the mistaken impression that applicants tn- be .crammed for the -exam-tr.ailons through special schools., We have this to contend with frequently, but the fallacy la so prevalent that attention should be called to it. No one, no school, specUl or otherwise, has an Inside information relative to civil service examinations. "They are not furnished with any of the forms of examinations or probable questions; neither can they in any way, ex cept, possibly, in giving some general knowledge to their students through their general courses of study, help the applicant for civil service examination In any de gree. "The commission is very jealous of Its forms of questions and none of them are permitted to leave the examination room under any pretext, nor are the applicants permitted to copy the questions. "These questions are changed for each examination and there la no possible way for any one to know but the commission Itself what the course of, examination will Im up to the moment of the examination. Some years ago an attache of the Civil Service commission resigned to accept a position' at an increased salary In one of th se special schools. Following bis retire ment from the civil service the torms of examination Were completely charged and any Information that he might profess to hava had was wholly valueless as relating to any subsequent civil scrvict cxamlna- When one dines at a First Class Cafe It's Service He Wants As well as the best the market affords AX ' HANSON'S It's service he gets Skllled while waiters Sunday Table d'Hote, 75 Cents vEZsSSXm tl HillTsanrnnaniUi sreirnMIlilftafsT,rTriir'Wfl?a Chespeako Cafe 1508.10 Howard St. J.
