The finest colors adorn the crudest bird-magnate of the woods. lllrd life runs along the same lines as human life. There as clans , tribes , famlles , lovemaking and homemaking ing , separations , alllnlties , weddings. Thu devotion of the mother. The pro tection of the father. There are mon ogamous birds , polygamous birds , help less birds , widow birds and robber birds. You are really among your kind when you are among birds. They sing ( iod's praises , but they do not talk or preach , or gossip , or argue about God's plan of redemption. The trees , too , are like people to those who understand them. If you see nothing in a tree but something to be cut down and sold for a post , the woods will have for you no compan ionship and no message. Trees live and struggle with the winds and the storms for their life. They give us shade , shelter , fuel and beauty. They lift their hands in supplication in the spring , they have buds and shoots and blossoms. In the summer , the luxu- rianeo of leaves and spreading branches. In the winter the bare trees are hung with tuitions of frosted gems . Shame on a petty depredator who cuts a young Nebraska tree for posts ! There is something to do on a homestead stead besides admiring the woods and birds and skies. There are experi ences with storms , wolves , timber thieves , Jealous contestants , that would road like , a story of frontier life in the west. There are the long quiet days and the routine of labor , the need of congenial associates. There/ planting and digging , the hot days when hordes of Insects swoop , down to devour the potatoes , the cu cumbers and melons. There is bar vesting , the chickens to care for , the pigs to feed , the cows to milk , the long and severe winters to endure. There are losses and storms. Hut it is the Land of Caanan , where waters gush from the rocks , to the one who longs not for the llcshpots of city living. . Hosa Hudspeth.

I New York. Feb. " . William M. ' Chase , a famous artist , was shown the statement today of Prof. Dudley A. Sargent , physical director of Harvard , that women are gaining physically on the men , and may soon be the stronger sex. He said : "There can't' ' ' be any doubt of it In the world. I've been noticing the change for a long time , and the sane habit of exercise . of the present generation is forming' I5 ' a new typo of women , with more physical - , sical perfection , therefore , more , strength , more beauty. j "Yes yes yes , he's right ! Rut he doesn't tell the most important part of It for most women , anyway. That Is , that in gaining In strength , women ! r are also gaining In beauty. American J j women , particularly , are becoming more beautiful every day. I abso lutely mean every word I say when I toll you that in no quarter of the globe nowliero in the world , Is a beauty comparable with that of the athletic American woman of today. " "Then you don't think , with many , that the Intellectual pursuits which naturally follow when women gain added strength take away anything from the delicacy of their beauty ? " ho was asked. "No no no no no ! " exclaimed , Mr. Chaso. "I cannot possibly make , that too strong. Why should a woman who uses her brain become less beauti ful ? It only gives her more soul and soul is the life of beauty. " "What is your Idea of the ideal American typo of beautiful women ? " o"The athletic one by all means , " au swored the artist decidedly , " and they don't como from any particular part of America. " THE WAIST LINE MOVES UP. Latest Paris Fashions Nearly on Nors mal Models Again. Paris. Feb. 7. Patiln ( | In making all bis now KOWIIM full from the waist. The ' waist line has reached the normal line , but Is still two or three Inches too large for a good effect , for the hips ' " are as much pulled In as over. _ The dresses have pieces put on at the belt ' ' , either back , front or side , and are made quite bouffant. Such dresses do not pull from the knees down. That Is ' ! to say , dresses have Iho air of beIng - Ing fearfully light , but It Is ony the lining , for nothing Is more ample than the t moUHsellne and lace put on over the whole. Sometimes these luxurious dresses have lace put on over cashmere do solo or meteor or velvet , whatever the goods happens to bo. Then over the lace Is moussollno of the exact color. The ensemble Is most lovely , and this veiled effect Is given almost everything - thing where lace Is used. Mallne and . blond ' lace show best , for the lace must necessarily bo very light and delicate. , Otherwise , the very line , soft effect Is . lost. This Is an Invention of Paquln which arrived last summer. Plaiting Is seen in many of the new skirls. II Is small and Hat , known as the t "knife" plait. In Iho middle of the l back or front , and pressed quite Mat ' , the effect Is good. It lakes much I I' ' Hie intense plainness off the plain up-and-down > skirls. Tills is the case with walking skirts , for as a rule long 1 skirls seem to have no shape. They ] are probably cut bell-like to the knees , whore they again curve in , to branch I out suddenly below. The only' beauty ( about those skirts is that they twine about a woman as she stands. Sometimes It takes a little time to "unlace" oneself , too , and to step out. The shawl rover has disappeared to give place to a very largo one that well covers the dross. At least it Is so with some of the newest dresses. One sees very few coiors at the dressmakers' parlors these days. Even the best evening frocks are black , no matter what ttio trimming. A pretty black satin afternoon dress Is trimmed - mod with white crystals , the cointuro , the hem about the skirt and the trim ming on the corsage being of the crystals. The effect of this dross was quite simple , and yet it was by no means so. When one considers the numerous bands and lappings that go on the cordage and the pieces that twine about the knees , it is as a rid dle. Very little goods Is used in the dresses , that is sure , but that very .scarcity of material is what renders the cut and draping difficult. All the fashionable bats are posed . half ' on the front of the head , half on the side. They really sit astride of the head. The best are suggestive of the Napoleons , but are larger and the brims are more upstanding. In mes- saline or in black velvet , tied with a pretty veil , the hats are stunning. Hut one must sec to appreciate them. They are simple , both as to decoration - tion and shape , for the shape is noth- .ing but a medium high crown , round , with a brim that stands straight upi all around. ' Some of the new hats of this snape are of seal or seal imitation , and are very elegant. They require little if j any trimming. Nothing is necessary but a short plume , a thick aigrette or j I ' 'Isome ; of the pretty butterfly effects * given in gold or silver braid. Cockades ' j ! i are put on every day hats. Steel roses , trim the black messaline hats perfectly - , fectly and make them as dressy as the wearer could wish. BANK NOTES AND TOP NOTES. Mary -Garden's Income is a Million Francs a Year. New York , Feb. 7. "Speaking of money , I am doing pretty well now. My income this year will be nearly a . million francs. " I Thus spoke Mary Garden , the grand 1 opera singer , yesterday. A million francs is about $200,000. "Do you make all that with your voice ? " the reporter asked. "No , indeed , " said Miss Garden. "I ' make some of It In my speculations on ' the bourse. Hut it's quite a jump in nine years , isn't it ? When 1 first sang j at the Opera Comique I received 50 ' francs ( $50) ) a month , which 1 lived 1 j ! on , too. That was nine years ago. I Imagine ! When I have sung as long as some other singers , you can figure out how rich I shall be. "Coining over from Philadelphia to- day. I read all the papers about' 'Klektra. ' and you can better believe ) that 1 am going lo hear Ihe next per- formaiu-e Monday night. Hammer- ' stein seems to have another success. I telephoned him this morning , and } he said that the lines for the box of- lice company filled the lobby. That is gratifying. " 1 adore Strauss. Ho Is the greatest of them all , but 'Salome' Is enough for me at present. And that reminds I 1me. . I am studying Gorman. Perhaps ! i shall be singing Gorman roles next ' season. "No. I haven't boon asked to sing at' ' Heireuth yet , but I may bo some day 1 ! and 1 want to be ready. Really , 1 can't say what I'm going to do , but I am studying Gorman. Hrunnhilde. Isolde ? Well , perhaps. " School Notes. Chancellor Avery of the state uni versity gave an address Monday morn ing before the high school on the snh- Ject of Gorman schools. It Is a rare privilege to have the chancellor and [ 1 to hear him on a subject with which I ho is so familiar. The American i I schools , he thinks , might well imitate' ' the thoroughness of these In Germany. ! The chancellor is proving himself o' ' bo a man of the people , and ho Is in [ every possible way , trying to put himself - ! self in touch with not only the stu i. dents of the university but also the high school students throughout the state. Miss Ruby Clarke , who takes the German and pedagogy this semester , fame Monday. She Is from the univer sity of Nebraska , although her home Is In northeastern Kansas. The boys of the high school have h en makiiiK a wrestling mat In the basement. | , This Is the llrst step to- uanl a gymnasium. Announcements are out for the mar- ilage of Miss Marguerite Lambart and Ora Cox of Falrbury. The wedding took ( place on Wednesday evening at i ! o'clock at the homo of the bride. They will , after a short trip , make their home in Falrbury. , The twelfth grade are wearing their class pins. The new sanitary drinking fountain has been Installed upon the lower tlonr of the hall of the high school. This enables the pupils to drink with out touching the lips to the drink ing cup. There Is thus no way In which disease may be carried from one pupil to another by means of the common cup. If this fountain is suc cessful it Is probable that the drink- Ing-cup system will be entirely done away with at thu high school. The danger of the public drinking cup Is becoming so well known that Kansas has a law which prohibits the use of it I upon railroads and In hotels. People ple are coming to realize how danger ous to the community it is and how expensive the diseases which may lie spread In this way really are. Recent- ly ' a drinking cup used In the schools of a large town was taken to a laba- ratory for examination. This was at a time when there was no epidemic of disease ; yet then ) were found in tlio deposit inside of the cup numerous particles I of dead skin and among them were thousands of germs of tubercu losis , and a large number of the germs of diphtheria. It would be hard to tell how many children contracted tuberculosis from tills cup , although the disease may not have affected any until years afterward. RURAL CARRIERS MAY FLY. That Will be One Use for the Aero plane , an Expert Says. New York , Feb. 7. The use of aero planes in rural free delivery is advo cated by Wilbur R. Kimball , an in structor in aeronautics in the West Side Y. M. C. A. "The practicability of the aeroplane has been fully demonstrated , " Mr. Kimball said in his opening lecture to his class of would-be fliers , " and within two years "it will be used com mercially to an extent not now dream ed of. Rural free delivery , for ex ample , is subject to great delays on account of storms and bad roads. With the aeroplane , however , the farmers' hard earned free delivery would be above these dilllculties. Ills mail would be dropped in a little pouch from the aeroplane , which would then speed on to the next farm house to deliver its packet. Mail could be collected through an arrange ment by which tlio aerial chauffeur could lower a hook and catch up the packages of mail. "One of these rural free delivery aeroplanes will cover a district ten times as large as that served by the present slow wagon system. Farmers all over this territory have been ' exerting every effort to get to market with their grain before tlio roads become so soft with spring thawing - ; ing , that hauling will be impossible. Every day during the past week when there | was a crust frozen on the roads , wagons poured into Norfolk , filled 'with grain. There wus no attempt to haul during the afternoons , fK'CAiise the aftprnoon sun melted the ice and ' t brought chuck holes in the roads. On days during the preceding week it was impossible to haul more than half a load of grain , because of the holes in the road. One-Fifth ol Corn Still in Field. A Norfolk grain man estimates that .there is still about 20 per coiit of the corn crop in the fields , inaccessible as yet , because of snowdrifts , to the buskers. Meanwhile , however , a great deal of husking has been done during the past few weeks. The snow Is gradually disappearing , melting during the' day and freezing at night , thus going off in the best possible , way so as to avoid Hoods. A Norfolk farmer who brought hay to town yesterday said it is selling at $ l per ton , but that the price would go up when the bottom went out of the roads. Mrs. Minnie Stark has filed suit in the district court of Pierce county against Julius Kuhl for $10,000 dam- for alleged breach of promise. Mrs. Stark was keeping house for Kuhl at Pierce and Kuhl , she claims , promised tu marry her. A short time ago Mrs. Stark came to Norfolk to visit relatives and while she was here Knhl went lo Hosklns where ho mar- ried Miss Gradio Hertz January 21. The bride is 22 years old. Mrs. Stark formerly lived at Iho Junction where two years ago her second husband , Albert Stark , was killed at the Northwestern roundhouse. After his death .Mrs. Stark sued Iho railroad company and a settlement was made in her favor for $1,500. Kuhl is a prominent citizen of Pierce county. At one time ho was vice president of the Farmers State bank of Had'ar. Mr. and Mrs. Kuhl have gene to housekeeping on the Kuhl farm northeast of Pierce. The records of Pierce county show that Kuhl has made a transfer of his real estate to M. Inholder , a banker of Pierce , and to his newly wedded wife. Ho has also transferred his personal property by bill of salo. Mr. Kuhl has been married throe times , It is reported. 11. F. Uarnhart of Norfolk Is acting counsel for Mrs. Stark. Sensation- al developments are promised. Mrs. Stark came here from Ponca. Mr , Stark was killed when a lover on n jack-screw flew around and struck him. MERCHANTS MAY CUT PRICES. Nebraska Retailers to Consider Plan at Meeting In Omaha. MadlHim , Neb. , Feb. 7. Retail mer- bants of Nebraska have called a meeting to consider co-operative moth- > ds for reducing llxed charges ; losses in bad accounts and produce which ire costing a sum annually added to the price of the necessities of life Hid hero alone Is a saving which , the merchants themselves say , will affect the high prices and have a tendency to bring them to lower levels. Fred Dlers ol Madison heads the movement and the meeting will be lield In thirty days In Omaha. More than 2,000 merchants In Nebraska are now being Invited to attend and Oma- ! ia business men will entertain the entire party. Following Is the schedule for saving $ : i,08 ! per annum to the merchants doIng - Ing a business of $50,000 annually , ac cording to Fred Dlers , who , with hlr associates owns a long line of stores : Single handed delivery system by one man , average cost per month..10 Co-operative delivery system 10 Saving for a single merchant.10 Single merchant's average loss per . month on produce of all kinds. . . $50 Co-operative loss per month per merchant 5 Saving per month for each mer chant $ -15 Single merchant's extension of credit loss per month $20 Co-operative loss per month o Saving per month each mer chant $17 Co-operative gain of power In col lecting undesirable accounts per month $10 Individual power vs. co-operative. . I ! Gain per month under co-opora- live $ 7 Loss per merchant by cut and slice prices $50 Under proper trade regulations. . . . 00 Gain per month per merchant.$50 Single handling of eggs , butter , pro duce , through store with extra clerk hire $50 Co-operative exchange as handled at Madison , loss if any 5 Saving $45 Single merchant with premium drawing schemes gives 4 per cent of sales $50 Co-operative system 00 ( Jain under proposed cooperative tive plan $50 Total saving per month for a single merchant , $254 ; saving for one mer chant for one year , $3,048. Tims , according to Mr. Dlers , the merchants of Nebraska are wasting annually a sum which alone adds to the total cost of living in the stale. This Madison merchant , who has been instrumental in working out locally a co-operative plan which makes the sav ing possible , has the names of 2,000 other merchants in the state , every one of whom can save $ : ! ,048 each year or $ tJ,0J,000. ! ) ( This amount is now- wasted and makes an increase in the cost of necessities of life bought from the country merchants. Mr. Diers is not taking into account the thousands of small dealers who do not do a busi ness largo enough In volume to make the saving but bo claims there are 2,000 merchants in the state who do such a business. Under the name of the "Federation 1 of Nebraska Retailers. " these men 1 have been invited to meet in Omaha March S , i ) and 10 and they are to hear from the experts who are Inter ested In the organization , just how the saving can bo made. Wholesalers and jobbers of the state are back of them , and propose to make It if possible a stalewide movement for the elimina tion of waste in handling merchandise , make the profits larger that the consumer sumor need not be compelled to pay not only the legitimate profit , but also for the loss on bad accounts , premium schemes , produce and the many other leaks In every store. FUR COIFS A PARIS VOGUE. Beauty and the Beast Meet in the Latest Hair Arranaetnent. Paris , Feb. 7. Ueauty and the beast meet in the newest arrangements In the dressing of the hair in Paris. The fur coiffure is now the popular thing with the women who keep abreast ol the fashions. It supplements the work of the "rat" and serves to produce a pyramidal effect which attracts attetv tion If nothing else. The use of furs in the coiffure is an outgrowth of their adoption in mill ! nery. In the latter oHlco there Is such a grotesque exaggeration that the millinery linory was put out of court entirely whore rational human beings , blossei : with the sense or proportions , were concerned . Top-heavy fur helmets , hiding the forehead and the eyebrows , and leav ing very little of the coiffure visible , were extensively worn a few weeks ago. To such an extreme were those conceits carried that almost the entire tire upper part of the head was ox c Unfinished. Even the blindest devotees voteos of fashion saw llllle to admire in this and demanded a change. The furs themselves had won point larlty , however , so some genius evolved the fur coiffure. Now It Ik the hair and its decorations whiel play the conspicuous part , while Hit headgear is less In evidence than form erly. These bandeaux are winning , great favor than did Iho helmets. Selling Furnishes Ball. Herman Soiling has furnished $1.00 ball at Fairfax where ho was arrestct ( l by Sheriff McMulIon on complaint o > Gustavo A. R. Werner of Fairfax , win seeks to recover $1,000 damages fo an alleged assault and battery commit ted July 20. Werner claims the as sault was extremely brutal , that hi face was badly bruised , both nasa hones broken and that ho was severe ly cut about the head. An Interesting Diary. . Dr. C. J. Verges ban In his posses sion his father's dally diary , kept con tinuously by his father from the year ISGS up until the time of his death a few years ago. It Is a complelo his tory of the early sellloment of Nor folk , covering a period of forty years , up to the death of the author. It Is written In the Gorman language and records Iho dally temperature , the weather , condition of the roads , crops , business transactions , prices , social af fairs , as well as Illuminating Items and sketches of character regarding the settlers and their vicissitudes during the long years of pioneer days. The state historical society would probably value very highly thhi precious docu ment. THE WHY OF POWDER PUFFS. Dabbing White on the Nose Is a N.itu ral Phenomenon. Chicago , Feb. 7. American women are . only following a common psycho logical phenomenon when they use face powder , according to statements made by Prof. II. G. Weatherly of Indiana university. Ho makes the statement In an article on "Raco and Marriage" In the current number of the American Journal of Sociology. Professor Weathorly declares the women are actuated by the same mo tives as savages who paint their skin black. "Men's Ideals of beauty usually are found In Iho best typo of what they tliemsehes are , and what they find most useful , " he says. "For this rea son , traits which especially charac terize a group are often arllllclally ex aggerated for purpose of ornament. Dark races blacken the skin. Tall races Increase the stature by special footwear. Flat nosed people further flatten the nose. White women use face powder. " Order of Hearing of Final Account.
