Session Was One of Parliamentary
Drill Productive of Much
Amusement to Male
Wostorn Newspaper Union News Heivlcr.
Women of various organizations held
a legislative session at tho state houso
Thursday, that was replete with argu
ment, debate, discussion mid parlia
mentary tactics, oxer laws proposed,
thoroughly disserted and finally dis
posed of, with a dispatch unheard of In
masculine legislation.
Tho session was not Intended ns a
burlesque performance at the expense
of the lords of creation who had been
holding forth so long In tlio same
chamber, but It approached that desig
nation on numerous occasions. Only
the fact that the ladles were not
familiar with frequent amusing per
formances of regular members kept
them from doing tho same thinga. Tho
session was aerlous in many respects,
tho members engaging In arguments
on tho merits of bills with no Inten
tion of Its being funny. The humorist
of tho ladles' houso was Mrs. A. M.
Hunting, whose gentle sarcasm di
rected at tho arguments made by men
in slmllnr situations brought down the
Mrs. ness Gearhart Morrison was
speaker. Mrs. A. M. Muntlng, al
though a representative taking tho
placo of Meysenburg of Hutler, acted
ns chaplain and thereby went farther
In tho economy program than had been
thought of before. Mrs. I M Schrcek
engast wns chief clerk and Mrs. F. A.
Alabaster first assistant. These ladles
wero extremely careful to divide tho
Inbors and In that reaped did not net
at all like tho clerical forco In the reg
ular legislature.
Mrs. Morrison aa apeaker followed
the regular oredr of business, but hur
ried through without nny first reading
bllla in order to refer some others to
the standing committees. One bill
wac ncted upon In passage. It was H.
R. 49, tho female labor law which
caused such a commotion in tho re
cent legislative session of tho men,
except that tho objectionablo provi
sions were not In It. Mrs. Frnnk Har
rison showed herself a seasoned mem
ber on this roll call by whispering to
her neighbors until the clerk had
called her name throe or four times,
when with slmulnted surprise alio an
Bwered. reading her explanation, and
later changing to thoothcr Bldo.
The real burlesque of tho day was
the proposed constitutional amend
ment to give mon tho right to vote,
it being asaumed in tho discussion
that they had never been so honored.
The roll call and tho cxplanationa of
votes wero made tho opportunity for
repetitions of many of tho arguments
used by men ns rensons why women
should not hnve the ballot. And very
probably all the ladieB who wero tak
ing part In tho session wore favorablo
to surrrago. Tho voting showed a
largo percontnge voting In tho nega
tive, for reasons that tho mon who
had preceded them in tho samo chnm-1
ber so many different times would
havo voted against woman suffrago.
The speaker ruled with an Iron hand. '
She would not announce tho result of
the voting other thnn to say It had J
carried. No protest roso from tho
indignant ncgatlvo voters at this an
nouncement. Mrs. E. T. Hartley Introduced one
of the sorioua bills of tho session, a
child welfare bill similar to the one
now in effect In Kansas. Mrs. Hartley
not only was successful in having her
bill passed, but so Interested tho women
in It that talk was heard In tho corri
dors to tho effect thnt action will
probably be tnken by Nebraska women
to secure through tho regents the es
tablishment of child wolfaro work In
tho extension department of tho uni
versity. Some of tho speeches, especially
from the authors of tho hills, wero
long nnd In that reaped did not dif
fer from tho usual course of events
where lawmnklng really counts. Mrs.
Jackson. representing Nuckolls,
moved directly nfter ono of tho rather
oratorical addresses that speeches
bo limited to threo minutes. Tho mo
tlon was entertained nnd cnrrlcd.
Mrs. Trester, repreacntlng York
county, Introduced an act to require
husbands to support their wivea nnd
children and to prescribo punishment
for violations of its provisions by a
term of not less than threo years la
tho penitentiary.
A groat deal of fun was had ovor
tho foraalo labor bill which was
amended by tho legislature to allow
women In small towns to work over
nine hours a day, and which bill
women generally disaprovo of. A liko
bill was brought in as a roport of a
standing committee.

There's a Reason in fact, a number of reasons.
Grape-Nuts is a concentrated food, hence a small portion goes a long way.
It is made of wheat and barley, and contains all the nutriment of these grains,
including those invaluable mineral salts so often lacking in ordinary food, but which
are indispensable for normal growth and maintenance of body and brain. One great
aim in originating Grape-Nuts was to supply this lack of mineral elements, and it
fulfills its purpose admirably.
Grape-Nuts is a delicious food, and digests quickly, generally in about one hour.
Compare this with the 2 J to 3 hours required by bread. j-

Attachment to First Home Is Much
the Same ns Is Evidenced
In Humanity.
The habit of birds in migrating
South when winter conies on Is In
fluenced by the need of finding a auf
llelent mipply of rood. As food grows
scarce when winter approaches in tho
farthest noithein places where birds
live they unturally turn to the South,
where, their Instinct IoIIh them, food
will ho plentiful. Th return of tho
birds In the spring to their accustomed
haunts In the North is one of tho evi
dences of their possession of an In
stinct which Is also strong In man.
The environment In which a bird or
human -being Is brought up generally
becomes a permanent part of Its na
ture. Ornithologists havo not yet
made it clear Just what enables tho
bird to find Its way back and forth to
(ho samo spot every year, and our
knowledge is eonllned to tho lact of
what tho 'homing Instinct" does.
After they mutu and build (heir
llrst nest and bring up their llrst fam
ily, birds cherish a fondness for that
spot much the same as tho attach
ment that man feels for his early
home. Tho spring migration of birds
Is their Joyful teturu homo after n
temporary sojourn abroad to secure
tho means of llwdlhood.
Gives Beauty Advice.
Girls, young Indies and misses, It's
no use to spend your coin on rougu
and powder to mako yourself look
beautiful. It will not Improve your
looks. And if you insist upon wearing
small, tight shoes with high heels, you
can depend upon It that they will
bring hard, drawn lines in your face.
Another menace to beauty hi a four
pound skypieco on your belfry. This
Is nil according to Dr. Ida C. Nnhin,
who makes a sweeping denunciation
of these things. If you want to rctnlu
your youthful beauty for ever und
ever, follow these dictates, says tho
doctoress: Plenty of soap nnd warm
water, lots of outdoor exercise, espe
cially walking, nnd drink two. quarts
of water every day. Tlieso will Insure
health, red cheeks and a slim, youth
ful figure. Doctor Nnhm recommends
tho water cure and walks especially
for ladles with too much embonpoint.
She says It's tho safest, surest and
quickest way to reduce.
