tj April9 . Patriotism Viei With Easter. Society people of Omaha concluded Lent with two big tvenu, the pa triotic dinner and meeting Saturday evening and Easter dinner Sunday.

They were among the most enthusiastic members of the gathering and sang as lustily and with as much feeling as if they were in the choir at a Billy Sunday revival meeting. After the meeting there was little gayety, for the ma jority of the patriots went seriousjy to their homes, the fact that the sons of our most prominent families are volunteering for service brings home the war situation to ail.

The Easter hats of the fair diners were chiefly the handsome shiny black enes which "our best shops" show at exclusive prices.

Miss Marion Kuhn with her fiance, Mr. Clarence Griffin, and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John A. Kuhn, were the center of much interest.

"The native African does not need clothes, but we who do need them seem to be wearing aDOUt as few as we can." she said. "The Japa nese and Chinese think we are im modest, because, with our tight cloth ing, we show our forms. They say that the purpose of clothing is to veil the form. We are approaching the days of Rome, when women received callers in the bath. It is hardening woman s nature to wear domes tnat show the form. The woman of the street cannot be told from the girls of our homes by dress. Only their brazen faces reveal their natures.

The summer campaign Is about to be gin, and it should be waged with re-J matically keeping the solution always lentless vigor. Only by keeping at it all the time can the fly scourge be held in check. Flies are dangerous; the; are the link that connects the unhealthy with the healthy. If you would avoid disease, or the spread of disease, kill the fly. The United States government makes the following suggestion for the destruction of house flies. For maldehyde and sodium salicylate are the two best ttv poisons. Bom are superior- to arsenic. They have their Kfte paper is alway9 kept moist are not a poison to children; they are convenient to handle, their dilutions are simple and they attract the flies. A formaldehyde solution of ap proximately the correct strength may be made by adding three teaspooniuls of the concentrated formalehyde solu: tion, commercially known as forma lin, to a pint of water. Similarly, the firoper concentration of sodium salicy ate may be obtained by dissolving Minimum Wage Laws For Women Are Valid Washington, April 9. Oregon's law fixing miraimum wages for wom en, the first compi ' ory minimum wage statute ever before the supreme court, was today opheld as constitu tional by an equally divided court. Similar compulsory laws of Washing ton, Colorado, Wisconsin, California, Utah, Mi. osota and Ohio were like wise sustained. ' , three teasponfuls of the pure chemical (a powder) to a pint of water. A container, such as shown above. has been found convenient tor auto available for flies to drink. An ordi nary, thin-walled drinking glass is filled or partially filled with the solu tion. A saucer, or small plate, in which is placed a piece of white blot ting paper cut the size of the dish, is put bottom up over the glass. The whole is then quickly inverted, a match is placed under the edge of the glass, nd the container is ready for use. As the solution dries out of the saucer the liquid seal at the edge of the glass is broken and more liquid flews into the lower receptacle. Thus Anv odor pleasing to man is of fensive to the fly and vice versa, and will drive them away. Take 5 cents worth of oil of laven der, mix. it with the same quantity of water, put it in a common glass atom izer and spray, it around the rooms where flies are. In the dining room spray it lavishly even on the table linen. The odor is very disagreeable to flies, but refreshing to most people. Geranium, mignonette, heliotrope t ..!.: t a : a:- l dim wiiilc iiuvci mc uucusivc it, iiics- They especially dislike the odor of honeysuckle and hop blossoms. According to a French scientist, flies have intense hatred for the color blue. Rooms decorated jn blue will help to keep out the flies. Mix together one tablespoonful of cream, one of ground black pepper and one of brown sugar. This mix ture is poisonous to flies. Put in a saucer, darken the room except one window, and in that set the saucer. To clear the house of flies, burn pyrethrum powder. This stupefies the flies, but they must be swept up and burned. .
