ASS FOE and GET HORLICK'S THE ORIGINAL MALTED MILK Um BlMMtitutM Mat KOU MB arte. OMAHA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1917. Alexa Stirling Shines as Golfer ' vV1 A MX rrxzss ' ZAl fsdVj 1 isxumbw.; P;7f;f ? "Class never fails to reach the top sooner or later," is an axiom of golf that is as old as the royal and an cient game itself.

Miss Woman Should Boom Her Husband By DOROTHY DIX. There is one subject upon which every woman's lips sftouH be fastened with a Yale lock, and that is her hus band's weaknesses. Unfortunately, so far from this be ing the case, the main diversion of many a wife is descanting upon the things she haa to endure in her lord and master; and, where two or three married women are gathered together, you may hear a catalogue of masculine frailties enumerated that would make a police blotter look like the "good conduct record in a Sunday school. This is bad principW, bad faith, bad taste and bad business. Aa long as a wife lives with her husband she should keep silent about his faults. The first pubhc criticism that she is justified in making of the man whose name she bears is when she files a bill of complaints in her divorce. Perhaps women would be more careful in criticising their husbands to outsiders if they realized that, as a general thing, it is the wife who writes her husband's price tag and that peo ple take him at her valuation. If a woman thinks her husband is great, if she respects his opinions, and quotes his views; if she has faith in his winning out and making a place for himself in the world by reason of his intelligence, enterprise and thrift, before we know it we are all speaking i of him as a coming man, and giving him our support, We have no better authority for it than what his wife says. And we feel there could be no better, for if a man's wife doesn't know him through and through, noboAy etse on earth does. On the other hand, if a woman is always calling attention to her hus band's faults, although she may mere ly do it for sclf-krincation, and to show what a meek Christian spirit she has, she creates a prejudice against him that nothing he can do dispels. How did we get the impression that Jones is a slack and inefficient busi ness man? From Mrs. Jones, who is always complaining about the things she can't afford, because her husband j is not ttettmg along well in his busi ness, is always unlucky in his ventures. Where did we get the idea tnat Smith, whom we have never seen to be anything but a model of sobriety, is drinking, and gambling and carous ing around every night? From his wife who is a rabid Puritan and pro hibitionist, and whose tears and la mentations over a glass of beer or a game of bridge lead the public to be lieve that her husband comes home with delirium tremens and breaks up the furniture. What makes us think that Tomp kins, who seems a good fellow, is a hypocrite, who conceals a cruel and malevolent nature behind a smiling mask? Because Mrs. Tompkins asked advice of the Mothers' Meet in? about how one should deal with a man who used his superior strength to maltreat a young and helpless child, the day after Tompkins whipped Bobby for running ott to join tne Indiana. It is his wife, almost always his Couldn't Straighten Up. Mrs. J. M. Sprinkle, of Ben Hut, Vs sayt that Csrdni cured her per manently tetKmblet: M Abo at two rears ago. . .

Tour druggist sells it 8-33 Alexa Stirling of Atlanta, Ga.. win ner of the premier title, is without doubt the best all-round woman golfer reared under the Stars and Stripes. This 19-year-old southern beauty has displayed the most consistent game ever exhibited by any feminine wielder of the golf clubs- wife, to whom a man owes his rep utation, and considering that a man's success depends on how he stands m his community, it does look as if his wife might be a little more careful of it. Of course women say that they never talk about their husbands to anyone but their mothers, and their dearest friends, whom they can trust. As for threshing over John's faults with mother, that way lies disaster, for seen through mother's magnifying glasses, a husband's tiniest weakness looms up as big as an elephant. And the queer part of this dis loyalty tlrat so many women show to their husbands is that they don't mean it They complain of their own particular Johns, but they wouldn't trade them off for any other men liv ing. They berate their husbands be cause they can't resist the tempta tion to represent themselves as mar tyrs who endure awful persecution with a calm sweet smile that hides their real sufferings from the world. To sustain this heroic pose, 1 a woman is bound to have a living sorrow, and as the handiest person around the house, the husband is forced into supplying the role of villain. But no woman should deceive her self into thinking that her complaints of her husband do him no harm. They are fatal, for just as no general could win a battle if he had traitor ous troops at his back, just as no merchant conld succeed in business if his junior partner was always call ing attention to the poor line of goods the firm carried, so disaffection of the wife brings about the downfall of many a home and family. AH of which teaches us that it is a wife's place to boom her husband. Leave the knocking for other people to do. There will be plenty of them to attend thoroughly to the job.

They marched and sang "America," and re ceived simple stories of Lincoln and what he did for his country. Lincoln's Gettysburg address and "The Perfect Tribute" were read in most of the rooms where children were old enough to comprehend these impressive compositions. At Come nius school the children of fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades gathered 4 in the auditorium of the school for joint exercises. Stereopticon views ot the civil war and events in connec tion with that great conflict were presented at Windsor school. Posters of Lincoln and essays were features of the day at Park school. Salutes to the flag and singing of "America" also marked the programs at this school. Many school children wore tiny flags. The schools were open as usual. Pupils of the high schools were excused in time to attend the Lincoln-Washington program at the Auditorium and all Boy Scouts were dismissed in time to get home, don their uniforms and get to the Audi torium in time to serve as ushers.
