41 i i 1 ) 9-' 5 r Y It "A r i BABY SHOW IN FULL SWING Last Item of Child's Welfare Ex . hibit is Completed. BERNARD TOMB RINX NOW LEADS Voomtcr from South Omaha Heads the IiUt of Entrlen So Far nejcla. tered Tola Are HaTlnR Great Time. "1 the war scare continues," said Mr. Buckley, manager of the Low-Cost-of-Llvlng show, "we will have to arrange to lecelve bulletins from The Bee and flash them on a screen here." The baby contest Is In full swing, the last, Item, tha child welfare exhibit, belnif completed yesterday. It Is an Ideal nur sery, fully equipped with all things good for baby's development and to make htm happy. The room In light and airy and Is furnished In green and white. A new bassinette, known as a carlole, Is the lat est thing In screened beds for babies. Then there Is a layette of sensible anl proper clothing for the, Infant. The little ones aro not taking any kind Her to the various operations of the doc torsi nurses and attendants than they did on the opening day, the walls and sobs having Increased In crescendo since yes terday,' If that were possible. The plaintive expression ot their faces as they are weighed, measured, thumped and ex amined is most pitiful to behold. Illslirnt llecont So Far. Bernard Tombrlnk, 7 months old, of 14a North Twenty-third street, South Omaha. Is the highest recorded baby so far. He lacks 1.5 points of being & perfect Jaby, being slightly deficient only In the weight apd measure tests. Richard Chestnut, also 7 months, has perfect mouth and teeth structure. No babies are permitted to enter the contest who have the slight est temperature, two having been denied tntrance for this reason. According to Mrs. Mary Watts, na tional nresldcnt. who Is assisting Mrs. F. J. Blrss and her committee in this" work, the majority of entries are made by young mothers, of their first babies. "There are fewer entries by the fathers than we are accustomed to have," she said. Mrs. Watts was highly pleased with the fact that of all the babies-there but one of them had been provided with a pacifier. "These aro highly injurious to babies." said Mrs. Watts, "and when we explained it to the mother she promptly discarded it." One little tot of 3 years strayed away from her mother and cried bitterly until her mother was located. A note of sadness was sounded when an attendant approached a haggard and somewhat disheveled man' and asked "Have you a baby .here?" "No, my baby is at an undertaker's," he answered sadly and turned away. He was Ralph Slgler and referred to his wife, a two weeks bride who died Just a few days ago. Is. a Big NlKht. Last night was society, base ball, suf frage and retail grocers' night. A special musical program waa given and the wed ding was a big event. The contracting parties were Walter C. Beat and suss Hazel Genevieve Anderson of Walnut, liL The ceremony was performed by Rev. O. D. BalUly of Kountse Memorial church, following which the young couple left for Chicago on a brief trip. Th bride has promised to submit ' to the Retail Grocers' association a monthly budget which will be used a proof that this Is really an economic weatnng. a special car 'brought forty" pedjHe from Walnut, la., for this event. Sneechea an Snffrasre. Suffrage speeches were on the program and lectures were given by Dr. a. I Llepsner of Kansas City of, the bureau of foods and drugs of the Department of Agriculture. Dr. Llepsner will also speak tonight, when a number of the Lincoln Commercial club members, headed by President W. C. Beachey and representatives from a number of com mercial clubs all over the state will be In attendance. Mrs. B. C. Strehlow, president of the Concordia Singing societies, has arranged for a musical program promptly at 10 o'clock thla evening. Over twenty-five voices are in the choir and will sing a special German program, In addition the Ladies Concordia singing society, the Lyra society and others will be on hand and will all give special music. The bureau of household , efficiency, maintained by the Omaha Woman's dub, is interesting the women by its tireless cookers, sanitary refrigerators, newest things in utensils, coffee roasters, etc. A number pause, too, to admire the Immense animal carving In butter. It la reminiscent of the story of a great sculptor, whose talent was discovered when as a child he displayed his art by modeling a figure from the pat of butter sent for his master's plate. Columbus Bids for Reformatory In a bid for the new state reformatory Columbus citizens are sending out an attractive little booklet telling about the advantages of that locality for the in stitution. The plea was written by a committee with E. M. Chambers as chair man. The salient arguments are' that Columbus is in the center of the state In behalf of population; that the site it is offering is priced reasonably; that the crops In that locality are normally cer tain, and that the transportation facilities are unsurpassed, ' As a town Columbus Is making good and. the citizens there agree to fulfill In detail all the promises they are making to the members of the state board which Is handling the location of the new re formatory. Practically all of the re quirements voiced by the board have 'been met by Columbus citizens so far. MUST MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR "SUFP DINNER EARLY Mrs: Frank Crawford of the Vassar club and Mrs. W. C. Sunderland of the suffrage committees, who are in charge of the luncheon to be tendered Dr. Kt ti er! ne Bement Davis at the Home hotel next Tuesday, announce that no reserva tions will be made later than Monday noon. Tickets are now on sale at suf frage headquarters, 410 Brandels theater building. Misses May' L. Copeland, Hilda Ham mer and Margaret Bruce are also mem bers of the Vassar club's committee .for the luncheon. Dr. Davis Is a Vassar graduate of the class of 1892. , A Cure fur 3onr Muumch. Mrs. Wra. M. Thompson of Battle Creek, Mirh., writes; "I have been troubled with indigestion, sour stomach and bad breath. After taking two bottles of Chamberlain's Tablets I am well. These tablets are splendid none better. All dealers. Advertisement. Electrical Stove Assists in Cooking The possibilities of th electrical stove as a mean of cooking in the home aro unlimited. Today there are several of, these ranges on the market, which are proving satisfactory In every respect and are in actual operation In Omaha homes,' a source of pleasure and comfort to their owners. One stove Is the nearest approach to the gas range. The burners on top are made of wire Imbedded In composition. which, when the switch is turned, be comes red hot In an instant. The ordinary kitchen utensils may then be used, as on other stoves. The oven and broiler are heated In the same manner, by red hot .electric wires. controlled by a switch. No matches are, needed. ' The cleanliness of the electrical range is a strong recommendation in favor of electric cooking. With this stove there Is no soot or dirt and cleanliness Is es pecially desirable In the kitchen above all else. The convenience and safety ot electric cooking also play In favor of this modern method of.prepAring food. Saving Shown With Electrical Washer Again wo hear from the man with the mathematical brain. A -washerwoman receives one dollar nnd sixty cents, a -day and one or two meals say twenty-five cents. Thla means one hundred dollars a year. An electric washing machine costs about one cent an hour to' operate. Four hours will do the average family wash ing.' This means four cents a day or about twq d6lars a year. Therefore, in less than one year the saving will pay fdr the washing machine. This mathematical sharp, however, did not .know that the saving In clothes and linen, due to their not receiving hard rub bing, amounted to a neat little sum. Again electricity does it better and cheaper. Vacuum Cleaner Saves Landlord Money The use of a vacuum cleaner now goes as part arid parcel of a great many flats. The newer apartment buildings con sider the vacuum cleaner right along with heat or the gas stove. The reason is probably partly a selfish one coupled with a desire to please. The easier It Is for the tenants to keep the apartments absolutely clean, the more likely they are to be kept absolutely clean. - The cleaner the flat Is kept tha better for the landlord's, pocketbook, so far as repair bills for paint and varnish, etc., go. TWENTY OLD FOLKS GIVEN JOY RIDE THROUGH PARKS Twenty inmates ot the Old People's home were taken In automobiles to view the tract donated to the home by Mr. and Mrs. George A. Joslyn. The trip and an additional 'spin through Miller and Fontanelle parks was made possible through the kindness of Mrs. Frank" W. Judson, Mrs. J. .A. Munrpe, .Mrs. XS, H. Robleon and George H. Kelley, who gave the use of their cars. Mrs. Georgo Tilden and Mrs. Frank Martin of the board of directors also accompanied them. OMAHANS HAVE RELATIVES AT THE MEXICAN CAPITAL Two Omahans, who have relatives In the City of Mexico, are R. O. Bibcock, EOS South Thirty-fourth street, and B. S. Arnold, 8009 Marcy .street. Babcock's cousin, George I. Babcock, Is interna tional, secretary of the Young Men's Christian association for Mexico.' Ar nold's brother, C. I. Arnold, Is connected with the street railway company of Mexico City. Neither Omahan has heard recently from there. Sees Menace In White Bread i The; eminent scientist, Prof. Le TttUe, of Paris, recently made a remarkable statement regarding food conditions in France. It is even more applicable to America he said: . , "France has changed an essential o f her nourishment. White bread is made more and more, starchy, and is less and less nourishing. The rich products which are extracted go to feed the pig3. The baker now utilises only fifty per cent of the wheat elements, whereas fifty years ago he utilized eighty-five per cent. The "rich products" referred to, which aro "extracted" from wheat, are the mineral elements phosphate of potash, iron, sodium, etc. These elements are abso lutely essential to proper nutrition of body, nerves and brain, yet they aro nearly all thrown out'by millers just to make the flour look white and pretty! The lack of these invaluable phosphates is one of the chief causes of nervous prostration, dullness, languor, constipation and other ills big and little. In the making of v Grape-Nuts FOOD nil the "rich products" of wheat and barley,from whi'oli thefood is made, are re tained. . . . - . . ' A regular ration of Grape-Nuts is not only a delicious part of the meal, but ad mirably supplies the mineral salts which the ordinary diet often lacks.
