Solemn Men in Senate Make Marked

Washington, March 1. Dignity, lev

droned its life away.
Dignity was the senate portion. '
Levity at times, sadness at others,
m.ukcd the house session.
The senate, long-winded and serious,
talked and talked.
The house. less serious about itself
and the things it did, injected a whoop
of laughter now,and then; while anon
as the hours switched toward morn

Late last night the house sang its

out the tunes he had loved "Auld

Moihei Machree"' and many others
but they knew that good natured,
hole-hearted "Mike" Conry would
have had them thus.
And as the chorus died down from
several handled throats a quartet
from the press gallery, above, took up
the refrain and old-time songs that
gave a tur to the heartstrings.

FIRE INJURES RESI
DENCE ON HIGH
The residence property on High
Hchool hill occupied by the Richard
Avard.and Jack McLean families, was
visited yesterday morning by fire and
the residence practically gutted by the.
fire and water. The blaze was first
discovered by some of the neighbore,
just as the first tongues of flame
were creeping out of the roof, and the
alarm was at once given, and the
work of carrying out the furniture
and effects of the families was under
taken by the friends who were quickly
on the scene, and all of the household
goods on the first floor of the house
were saved and a greater part of the
furniture on the upper floor, tiear
where the fire was working its way
rapidly through the attic beneath the
roof, he boys did some excellent work
in the handling of the blaze as it
seemed impossible at first that the
flames could be checked, but was final
ly gotten under control after the en
tire roof of the house had been de
stroyed. The fire evidently was caused
by a defective flue, allowing sparge
to escape and set fire to the timbers
in the roof of the house. The fire oc
curred close to the noon hour and at
tracted a crowd of several hundred
persons, who watched with interest the
battle to control the flames that
seemed certain to destroy the entire
house. The loss is partially covered
EARNS HER RIGHT
TO BE STARRED
Helen Holmes, as the heroine of the
Mutual Star, production "Medicine
Bend" which cor.u-s to the (lem
Theatre, Tuesday March th, reveals
to her host of admirers a new side
her exceptional ability as an emo
tional actress. Several of the scenes
the appears in are highly dramatic
and none but an artist could depict
the mental anguish of the clu'.racter
In many jnstances she rises to the
demands of the role, and her charac
terization can be said to be unexcell
ed in dramatic power and versality.
Miss Holmes is appealing as the wife,
maltreated by her husband, grasps the
subtlety of the characterization and
demonstrates that she is not only ;'.
darjng film star, but an emotional ac
tress of rare qualities.
J. P. Cowan, who directed the
great picture and who plays the title
role, acts with his usual dignity and
repression. His performance is sec
ond only to that of the star. Mr. Mc
Gowan has long been recognized as an
actor of unusual merit, but never has
he appeared to such excellent advant
age as he does in this production.
As the director of this production.
McGowan has demonstrated in many
ways his claim to being ranked among
the foremost producers of motion pic
tures. Jeff Solsburg was a passenger this
morning for Omaha, where he goes to
visit his wife, who is in the hospital
in that city.
Will T. Aikims departed this morn
ing for Howard county, where he will
visit his son, Max Adams, at his home
near St. Paul.
Miss Margaret Rishel relumed to
Omaha this morning after a .short
isit in this city with her parents, M
and Mrs. W. B. Rishel and family.
Emil Stenik. who has been employed
by trie Burlington company at Edg
ment, S. D., for the past, few weeks,
returned home Saturday on No. 2 to
resume his work in the shops in this
Guy Crook of Lincoln, who was an
over Sunday visitor in this city with
his parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. I-'. Cook,
returned this morning to the capital
Mrs. E. L. Spies of Sterling, Colo.,
arrived this morning to enjoy a visit
in this city with her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. J. C. Peterson. Miss Edna Pe
terson met her sister in Omaha and
accompanied her to this city.
Attorney C. II. Taylor, of Omahj,

few legal matters at the court house.

A Rillious Attack.
When you have a bilious attack your
liver fails to perform its functions,
you become constipated. The food you
eat ferments in your stomach instead
of digesting. This inflames the stom
ach and causes nausea, vomiting and a
terrible headache. Take Chamberlain's
Tablets. They will tone up your liver,
clean out the stomach and you will
soon be as well as ever. They only
cost a quarter.
