Omaha , July ID. In this town near
ly all the mon who ride on street cars
arc dolling their hats and giving up
tholr seats to colored women , whllu
many of them are seeking to shoulder -
or the colored woman's burden , A
couple of days ago an aged colored
woman , carrying a largo basket of
laundry , boarded a crowded east
bound Dodge street car. Every seat
was occupied and no one made a
move to got up as the old "mammy"
clung to R car strap and swayed back
and forth. Finally , with the air of
u Chesterfield , P.rnnklln Trumbull , a
bank clerk , arose and graciously bow-
oil the old colored woman Into his
Hout. Several of the acquaintances
of Trumbull on the car laughed and
jeered him , but bo paid no attention.
When the car slopped to lot the col
ored woman off It happened to bo at
the Intersection where ho worked , and
that night ho hud to bo at the bank
to post some books. Ho bellied the
woman off with her basket and then
carrlod It along the strout for four
blocks. As ho turned the burden
over to the woman she asked his
name and address. Thinking nothing
of the matter , the following- morning ,
whan at breakfast , a colored boy rang
the bell and , going to the door , Trum-
-bull received an envelope which , when
opened , disclosed ten crisp $10 bills ,
with a note saying : "This Is for Mr.
Trumbull. the politest white man J

STATE SHOULD ADVERTISE.
Will A. Campbell Tells What Other
States are Doinq.
Lincoln , July 15. That Canada la
securing our fanners at a cost of $4.28
oer capita and being enriched at the
rate of $1,000 for every man , woman
and child going Into the new country ,
while Nebraskans sit Idly by and per
mit other states to stop the Immigra
tion from their farms as well as se
cure thousands of new settlers , was
the principal thought In an address to
the Lincoln Ad club by Will A. Camp
bell of Omaha. Mr. Campbell Is man
ager of the publicity bureau of the
Commercial club and chairman of the
legislative committee of the state as
sociation of Commercial clubs. He
spoke on "Advertising the State and
Incidentally Your City. "
1 "The fact that there were 150 farm
ers from the states with assets ol
$200.000 passing through St. Paul in
three days , bound for Canada , may not
be a serious consideration , but when
we get closer to home and know that
-one man In the city of Omaha sells
twenty-eight sections of Canada land
to Nebraska farmers in ninety days
and sends fifty-one families Into Brit
Ish territory , wo can see why the de
posits In Canadian banks Increased
$8,000,000 during the month of March
"When the bankers of Missouri pul
up $25,000 for systematic Iraralgratlor
work ; when Kansas spends $25,00 (
per annum ; when Wyoming has $11 ,
000 , and Minnesota wants $100,00 (
next year , after spending $20,000 lasi
year , and getting 19,000 settlers , No
'braska business men may well usk
'Why don't the legislature wake up ? '
"Every town and city In Nebraskt
Is being blighted by the fact that th <
state does not take a good Inventor :
of Its resources and advertise them U
the world. "
LATTA FILES AS POPULIST.
Goes to Lincoln to Confer With Al
" Allied Parties.
Lincoln , July 16. James P. Latti
of Tekamnh , who recently filed as i
candidate for congress on the dome
cratlc ticket , came to Lincoln am
filed a petition to have hs name placoi
on the populist ticket.
"If the democratic state conventlo
were to be held this week , " sold th
congressman , "I feel sure that I
would not adopt a platform favorab
to county option , but I do not know
what will happen by the 26th of July ,
or whether sentiment wll bo ehangod
by that time. Mr. Bryan's speech to
the democrats of Lancaster county
will not affect the politics of Hurt |
county at all , for the reason wo have
no saloons In that county and there
Is no liquor light. Mr. Hitchcock tolls
mo thai the rank and file of the party
Is opposed to county option. I w.ia
talking to him yesterday. Ho tele
phoned mo In regard to gelling oul n
candidate to file for the state senate. "
VWhal are your constituents saying
about your vote against the postal
savings hank ? " was asked Mr. Latla.
"Oh , I hear llioro Is some talk go
ing on. But I have not been outside
of my home county and I really do
not know what the voters are saying
In the other counties of the district"
Klein's New Play , "The Gamblers. "
Now York American : It was an
nounced recently that the first play to
bo presented by the Authors' Produc
ing , recently organized , will bo a new
work by Charles Klein called "The
Gamblers. " U Is the author's latest
work , and ho considers It his best.
Ho will give the production personal
attention , even as far as engaging lite
players , making of the scenery , and ,
In fact , every detail.
This will be the commencement of
the work of the Aulhors' Producing
company , which Is an organlzallon of
prominent playwrights and producing
managers , Including John Cert , A. E.
V. Olroux , Klein and olhors. The
idea of iho organization' Is to have Its

Involves Nebraska Freight Rate.
Lincoln , July 10. The state railway
: > minisslon may go to a show-down
lib the Inlorstalo commerce coinmis-
Ion for ordering a change In local
rolght rates in Nebraska. The state
ommisslon believes It has entire Jur-
sdicllon over Nebraska rates and that
i stepping over the line and Inter
ring with these rates it believes the
ational body has overstepped Its an-
lorlty. Some time ago a cement
ompany of Wyoming filed a protest
1th the inter-stale commission
gainst Hie Norlhweslern alleging
hal Its rates wore too high In this
tale. The company shipped Us out-
ut to Norfolk over the Union Pa-
Hie and then from Norfolk the stuff
vas senl over the Northwestern. Af-
er taking evidence in the case the
'ommisslon ' ordered the Northwestern
o reduce its rates on cement and
laster to numerous nelghooring
owns. Commissioner Harlan resent-
id from the opinion of the majority of
lie commission on Hie ground lhat
t had no aulhorlly lo Inlerfere with
trlctly local rates. In accordance
vlth the order of the national body
he railroad filed Its revised schedule
vlth the state commission which tin
ier the stale commission law is llle-
al because permission was not first
received from the local commission.
Prospects for the Norfolk-Newman
Jrovo Interurban railway are looking
i-ery good , according to W. R. Martin
ivho reports his campaign among the
'armors ' , securing subscriptions for the
enterprise , has been a success. A
arge mooting of people interested In
: he proposition will be held at Klos
or , on Wednesday , July 20. Kloster
[ Hlizens , says Mr. Marlin , are very
uixious lo have the road built through
their territory and have made it now
known that enough subscriptions
would be had to pay for the railroad to
run through that vicinity. A delega
tion of the Norfolk Commercial club i
, vill attend the Kloster meeting.
Should the present hose wagon of
the fire department be turned In for a
combination chemical and hose wagon ,
Norfolk would have complete fire pro-
lecllon In every part of the city. This
was the general belief of members of
the joint hose companies who met at
the city hall at the last joint meeting
of the season. The wagon now Is use
Is too heavy , they say , and In case of
a fire In outside dlstrlcls II Is of no
benefll owing lo Iho fact , , that It car
ried nothing but hose and only a few
small tanks of chemicals. In such
cases the hook and ladder company
must make the run and do what is In
Its power. If a comblnallon wagon
would be provided , the firemen declare
many buildings In outside dlstrlcls
could be saved. Such a wagon Ihey
declare carries Iwo ladders , large
chemical tanks , and sufficient hose ,
No more Joint hose company meetings
will bo held until next October.

A NEW DANCER FOR SOCIETY.
New England's Summer Colony Ad
mires a Russian Countess.
New York , July 16. Members of
society who elect to stay on this side
of the Atlantic tills season have a new
sensation to while away the tedious
hours at Newport , Bar Harbor and
Narragansett Pier. The sensation
Is countess Thamara do Swlrsky , the
Russian dancer , who made sucli a hit
last year at the Metropolitan opera
house , where she appeared In Oriental ,
Greek and Russian dances. Arturo
Toscaulnl describes her as having the
"most musical body" he ever beheld.
Her beauty of form and grace of
motion have earned her many engage
ments , and from now till the regular
theatrical season opens she will ap
pear privately In the exclusive social
circles of the Four Hundred. She re
cently returned from Paris , where she
danced for Baron Rothschild and mem
bers of the French nobility.
Artists assert that Countess Swir-
sky has one of the most marvelous
figures in the world. One statuette
representing her as an Oriental dancer
made by Prince Troubetsky , has boon
purchased by the Chicago Museum of
Art. Another won a prize at the ex
position in Rome.
The countess , who is 23 years of
age , began dancing only two years
ago. She was then studying the piano
In Munich and had won the first gold
medal In the conservatory , where she
was a pupil , over 1110 competitors
all of whom were men. Her mother ,
widow of Count de Swirsky , and her
stepfather , Professor PodersIsUy , n
noted Russian scientist , objected to
the youthful Countess Thamara taking
up dancing , but were finally won over.
ENGLISH AND AMERICAN GIRLS.
London , July 16. Compared with
American girls , English girls excel In
"natural possibilities , " such as com
plexion , hair and general health. How
ever , the American society girls un
derstand the art of dress far better
than do their English sisters ; besides ,
they exert themselves' to the utmost
to bo brilliant and hence delightful
companions. The English girls live
nore alone and consequently are dull
"On the other hand , the Amerlcar
girls are much more local In theli
knowledge and Interests. The range
of thought of the English girls em
jraces the world. Many of their mer
folk are addicted to wandering , whlcl
often develops Into the power of colon
zing. This broadens the minds of th <
girls and their charities extend fron
Lebanon to London. They study the
sport from polo lu India to cricket li
"There are two keynotes tc an Eng
llsh girl's life politics and sport-
In which she Indulges with that clai
ness and vigor which are possible enl
with a healthy body and mind , am
perhaps with the accompaniment o
rustic dullness. The American girl 1
pampered , whereas In England th
boy comes first.
"Before marriage English girls so
little of men ; American girls mucl
Afler marriage Ihe situation is
versed. English husbands and wive
live a common life ; American hm
bands and wives have their absort
ing individual Interesls. The men ar
absorbed in business , whereof Ihe
10 tell their wives little or nothing. Th
women are absorbed In their own li
tellectual pursuits and pleasures.
