n New Styles!
The following is an extract from one of the leading style journals:
"Fashions for Spring, while not indicative of any radical change, are
extraordinarily interesting. The prevailing style features of the winter
modes have been developed and improved rather than any attempt having
been made to introduce changes of an unusual character.
"Taffeta, in both plain and fancy effects, is the most popular material
for Spring. It is shown in stripes, plaids and in pompadour effects. The
combining of silks with sheer materials is an important factor in dress
fashions for immediate and future wear."
For Spring Dresses and Costumes,
our showing of Taffetas in plaids, stripes and plain colors, is all you could wish
for in making a selection. These are all yard wide and are of the soft Chiffon
finish. Chiffons and Georgette Crepes to match Taffetas and Silk Poplins, for
the making of sleeves, vest effects and over-drapes.
The McCALL FASHIONS are the last word in good styles. The new
Spring Quarterly, (just out) is simply filled from cover to cover with chic styles
for every one.

The masquerade given Saturday
evening at the T. J. Sokol hall by the
young ladies turning class was a most
successful affair in every way, and
a very large crowd was present to
take part in the pleasuers of the even

rarest pleasure, without anything to
mar the enjoyment of the dancers as
they moved to and fro to the music
furnished by the Holly orchestra. The
dance, which was conducted by the
young ladies, was throughout very
pleasing, as the attendance shows, and
it was with regret that the strains of
the home waltz was heard by the mem
bers of the party as the signal for
the home-going hour. It was one of

England that an answer seems due.
It was announced yesterday the

a conference between England and her
It has been reported at various
times that England has been having
some difficulty in obtaining whole
hearted approval of her action by
France and Russia because it is be
lieved at Petrograd and Paris that
to express such approval would set
a precedent that might bind those
countries in the event they are in the
future enemies of Great Britain.
The American protest was present

Councellor Barclay of the British
embassy yesterday afternoon laid be

Birth of a Fine Daughter.
This morning Frank Kalasek was
just about the happiest man in the
community as the result of a visit of
the stork at his home, when a fine lit
tle daughter was left to brighten the
Kalasek home. The mother and little
daughter are doing nicely and the
proud father will be restored to nor
mal condition in a few days. As Frank
says he now has three daughters and
two sons and three queens and a pair
of jacks are mighty hard to beat, and
the little daughter is the object of a
great deal of admiration from the
brothers and sisters.
Called on Sad Mission.
At an early hour this morning a
long distance telephone call was re
ceived by R. L. Ponsler, of the Ne
braska Lighting company, conveying
the sad news of the death in Kansas
City last night of Mrs. A. E. Geyer,
mother of Mrs. Ponsler. Mr. and Mrs.
Ponsler departed this morning for
Kansas City to be present at the
For a Bilious Attack.
When you have a severe headache,
accompanied by a coated tongue,
olathing of food, constipation, torpid
liver, vomiting of partly digested food
and then bile, you may know that you
have a severe bilious attack. While you
may be quite sick there is much con
solation in knowing that relief may be
had by taking three of Chamberlain's
Tablets. They are prompt and ef
fectual. Obtainable everywhere.

W. Bryan Saturday in reply to Mr.
"Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 19, 1910.
Mayor C. W. Bryan, City. Dear Mr.
Bryan: In last evening's papers you
say that before you announced your
candidacy for governor you urged vari
ous prominent democrats in the state
to become candidates for governor,
among them such well known demo
crats as Judge Edgar Howard, Hon.
W. H. Thompson, Judge J. J. Thomas
and Hon. I. J. Dunn. You also say:
'I also wrote to Hon. J. S. Canady and
endeavored to interest him in the state
contest.' "You do not say you urged
Mr. Canady to become a candidate for
governor. Maybe you urged him to
take another place on the ticket.
"Except Mr. Canady none of the
democrats named by you have been
recognized by the people as dry men.
You say, however, that you would
still like to see one of those named
by you file for governor, and you
say: 4If one of the above named
democrats will volunteer his services
as candidate for governor I will glad
ly withdraw from the race in his

make this statement to the public in
good faith, and I will now say to you
and to tne democrats of the state that

race I will do likewise and we can

tory. "I have known both Mr. Canady
and Mr. Thomas for abouty twenty
years and no better men live in the
state than these two worthy demo
ciats. Neither one of them can re
fuse a draft to public service under
conditions as they now exist, and I
hope you will join me in bringing
about this much desired result.
Neither one of these men might volun

will respond to a call.
