OMAHA PAYING WELL FOR SERVANT GIRLS A 11, Are Are the uie, it mm REAL LUXURY EifpnDollars a Week for Families of Three Common Offer. EVEN HIGHER STIPENDS PAID Are No Longer Required to Do the Washing, Which Is Sent Out. CHANCE TO SAVE THE COIN t!et More Thnn Mont Clrln In Fnc torlea nnd Stores, nml llnre Their Ilonrd nml Itoom nnd Wnsli lnir Thrown In. HousemaldH, domestics, kitchen serv ants, or whatever name they happen to be known by, are becoming a luxury In Omaha, both In the matter of tho diffi culty of finding them and the high wages they command. Want ads have recently appeared In the columns of The Bee In which persons have Inquired for serv ant girls, offering to pay $8 per week for a family of three. An Investigation mado by The Uee Saturday revealed the fact that these aro not rare enses, but that In fact r grcot many servant girls .nre now, nnd have been for some time, get ting $S per week for their services, and that some are even getting as mich as $10, 11 and even in rare cases $12 per week. In still other cases certain persons are employing two girls, - paying each one from $6 to J8 per week. One Is usually known as the maid white the other Is tho cook. Tho maid waits tables and an swers doorbells. , Do .Not Do Wnnlilnir. Even in the cases where the highest prices are paid for servant girls, the girls are no longer required to do the washing. Either the washing Is sent out or the washerwoman comes to the bouse once a week to do this work. The servant girls now-a-days aro largely foreign born girls. There are, of course, some American girls, who still go Into the kitchens as scrvaitts, but these aro becoming fewer and fewer. Tho foreign girl when she first arrives Is, of course, not fit to earn the highest wages as servant, but It she learns her work readily she soqn commands good wages The Bee's representative found one case of an Irish girl, who landed In Omaha some years ago. 8ho vera to work as a house servant at $4 per week. She worked hard and learned her duties well. She saved her money and In a tew years sent money to Ireland to bring her brother over. He camo and secured a position with . the, Cudahy Faokln company,;? find I no Wi-holdaV responsible position there, in a few years more tho same Irish girl had saved enough to bring her sister over. The sister also secured work as a servant and. Is now getting among the top wagcH. Ability Required. Miss Marie Odlorne, secretary of the employment bureau ot the Omaha Young: Women's Chrtstaln association, was asked by The Bee, whether the Blrls In de partment stores and factories, who are getting less wages than the servant girls, might not get the sama wages If they cared to bare their arms and put their fingers Into dish water. "No," replied Miss oaiornc. "These Blrls have not the ability. They nre not prepared to go Into a kitchen and do houbework. They know nothing of housework. It Is tho way they, are brought up In the city now-a-days. What decs the average girl raised In the Ameri can city know about cooking or baking, or about doing housework In general? She would be completely lost In tho kitchen. The fact Is there are bo many families, who board or who have servants now-a-days that the girls growing up (Continued on Page Two.) SHERIDAN COUNTY MAN PERSISTS IN PARDON QUEST (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. May 18. (Special.) Clmrles II. Brlley has applied for a pardon to Governor Morehead, notwithstanding two members of the Board of Pardons have recommended that he receive no clem ency at the hands of the governor. Brlley was convicted In Sheridan county of killing Robert Ferrln, January 30, 1911, and was sentenced to twenty years In tho penitentiary.

A quar rel ensued, which resulted In Brlley fir ing threo shots at Ferrln, none of which took effect. Later In the day the latter came Into a store where the former was and the quarrel again started resulting In Brlley shooting Ferln dead.

In this ho Is joined by Mr. Maggl, another member ot the board. However, Mr, Ylcser, the third member of the board, believes that Brlley was the object of persecution on the part of Ferrln and that fear of him caused him to take the action he did, At The Bee office 17th and Farnam. 10c per One 11 in. . tfW?

The sketch plans met with unanimous favor, It being agreed that the drawing promised a beautiful building In every way, ono thnt will be a splendid feature of the new Omahd. The Illustration from Mr. Kimball's drawing shows the exte rior of the hotel, viewed from the corner of Eighteenth and Douglas streets. The plan calls for a building sixteen stories high, with a massive domo roof. The con struction Is to be steel, red face brlok and terra cotta. The building will oc cupy a ground rpace 132 feet on Eight eenth street and 154 feet on Douglas, al though on tho west end on Douglas street a scatlon twenty-two feet wide will rise only four stories, this to Insure always plenty of light and air for tho rooms on the west side of the main building.
