While the magnificent company
filled the Auditorium Wednesday J
w aited in expectancy for the perform-
snce of Mile. Anna Pavlowa, wtalc'u
formed the curtain-raiser of the
Omaha Ilotary club's charity benefit
ball, the manager of the famed Rus
sian danseuse was in the box office
fighting an attachment hlrta was
served after the first act after 10
o'clock.
I'harruinnly jtonned women, elegantly
coilTed. maids and matrona alike, with
their escorts, on the qui vlve of expect
ancy for the event In store, discussed the
beauties of the ballet, discussed them
ngaln, looked alut at their neighbors,
hegan to chut with them, admired the
liberations of the Immense hall, and then
began to wonder.
tranil la Patient.
For an hour after 8 o'clock the crowd
contented Itself and there waa much
speculation. Colfftircs lost their charm.
Ilest creations of modistes failed na
tlietnes for talk, a.nd the wait bcRan to
tie irksome, wheti the curtain at last
went up.
The cause of the delay In the opening:
of the show waa the late arrival of the
company from Kansas City, as the Mis
souri Pacific, train did not reach Omaha
until 6:20.
International Complication.
The firmness that lies lit the hand of
the law when It la applied, hew-ever in- i
opportunely, coupled with Mile. Favlowa's 1
determination not to disappoint the big
company of patrons of charity, was the
cause of the hitch and the means of its
ending.
An International incident delayed the
performance. Dei-ausa Kobert Shiverick,
former Omahan, while witnessing- a
Pavlowa performance In Toronto two
years ago, received a blow upon his head
from a sword that slipped from the hands
of the star's dancing partner, he got a
,",000 judgment against the danseu.so in
Canada and levied on the proceeds of
the charity ball hera to collect it.
Some Itnsalan T'sed.
The box office of the Auditorium was
n animated place before the curtain rose
for the second act.
Max Illrsh. manager of the Pavlowa
company, contended the Judgment was
obtained against a Pavlowa corporation
In existence two years ago. The Pavlowa
production this year is an entirely dif
ferent concern, In no way responsible for
old obligations, ha said. It was upon this
point that the dispute rested, and after
a two-hour discussion the $2,500 was
finally placed In neutral haunds pending
a legal settlement.
The 12,500 attachment will In no way
aTfect the money intended for charity, as
it only covers the ahars of the Pavlowa
company.
Thousand In Grand March.
All thla ao delayed the scheduled pro
gram of the evening; that it was but a
few minutes before midnight when the
Pavlowa program was over.
Not discouraged by the delay, however,
more, than 1.000 magnificently gowned
women and men remained to take part In
the grand march, and danced after that
Into the early hours.
There was nothing to worry about, for
automobiles by the hundred waited on the
outside, and tha weather was not too
uncomfortable.
Proceeds Generous.
Those in charge of the ball said after
midnight that It was utterly impossible
to say what the net proceeds for charity
would be. The tickets will not be checked
up until some time today.. The most
conservative of those attempting to esti
mate It, however, believed that the gross
receipts were over $4,000, and that the
net to go to charity would be well up
to l.o00 or l',00.
Pavlowa's company gave a wonderful
exhibition of the illimitable possibilities
of the physical being, in feats of agility
hiiI charming grace of motion. The pro-
tram was a long one, and everyone re
marked of the adequate money's worth
received.
llanseuae Offers Aid.
Pavlowa herself was a "good fellow."
She offered to do anything that would
help raise money for charity. She sug
gested that the first dance with her be
auctioned off for charity. But owing to
the luteness of the hour when the con
err t was over these offers were refused
with thanks, and the ball proceeded with
out this feature.
Governor John II. Morehead, with Mrs.
Morehead, occupied a box. With them
was llaiiey Moorhead, Douglas county
election commissioner. The entire city
commission was represented at the ball.

That is almost 10 pfr cent lower than It
was last year at this time ami 2 per cent

A feature of the planting of winter
wheat this year la the great Increase in
acreage In the southern states, where
farmers are devoting more land to tho
crop, decreasing their acreage fop cot
ton. South Carolina's acreage has been
increastd 1 per cent, compared with

Owing to the poor condition of winter

Moratorium for
the Fourth Time
PARIS, Dec. 17.-For the fourth time
bince the beginning of the war, the finan
cial settlements have been postponed. Tho
moratorium, applying to all negotiable su
i in itiea dated before September 4 and
maturing bcfoi-o March 3, 1013, has been
extended for two months.
fc Business now appears to be better than
at any time since the war began. This
applies both to production and to trade.
More certain Is circulation. Gidd, which
bad been in hiding, is occasionally given
m change now, and when depositors go
to their banks they are once more asked
whether they will take some of the pro
i eeds of their checks in gold. Country
postuffices are paying out icold In change
to oin extent. One of them gave an
American autompbllist 400 francs in gold
In changing a 1,J-franc note. The 5
rrano stiver piece, winch for a time dis
appeared and was replaced by paper, is
again appearing freely.
The financial authorities believe that
vast sums of gold are still being hoarded,
mostly in small amounts. It la a com
mon sight to see peasants at country
postofflces purchasing bonds with gold
coin.
