the word "debutantes." Of course every
body knowa what It means, but there seems
to be but comparatively few who know Juat
who It means, and here the trouble begins
but who shall say where It Is to end?
As a matter of fact It Is alwaya a bit con
fusing to remember Just where to apply
that term during the early part of every
aeaaon, but some seasons It Is ao much
worse than others that even those who
pride themselves upon their ability to
meet emerneles have to own that more
misunderstanding, embarraasment and
even awkwardness hns resulted from a
misapplication of this word than from any

to these there are the girls who, with the

Is disbanded now, and these young matrons
hold undisputed possession of that title.
Then there la the Junior Cooking club,
whose members, until this fall, were
known as the "debutantes," but recently
the young women really entitled to this
name have effected an organization and
styled themselves the Debutantes' Cooking
club, which promises to be the nearest so
lution to the difficulty of anything that
has yet happened, for they have announced
their Initial meeting for New Tear'a day,
when they will keep open house during
the afternoon. This bit of diplomacy ought
to Insure them undisputed and exclusive

hospitality, there Is a man In society who

are, he deserves to suffer the conse
Dear Jack: Owing to your absence from
the city last week I presume you did not
read the Setter from Karolyne In The Sun
day Bee, In which she complains of the
duality of mankind. '
She presented rather a scathing arraign
ment of our sex because of the manners
assumed (I say assumed, for from her point
of view It must be so." when In society
and tha manner In which we conduct our
selves whan following the dally routine of
our atrenuous life. Perhaps Karolyne will
admit that when we are In society we are,
for the time being, free from the cares
and worries of business and have nothing
to think of except to make ourselves as
agreeable as we may be' able to our lovely
slaters. The next day, when wa are at
our offices with many arduous duties con
fronting us which require mental labor and
effort, we have (except ' In cases where
tender feelings may exist) excluded from
our minds the same lovely sisters 'who so
pleasantly entertained us the evening pre
vious. In the rush of the world these days, with
our minds occupied with our professions
or business, and dollars and cents, we are
apt to make Rome blunders of the sort she
complains of, which may bo construed aa
being willful, but are aa matter of fact
lone altogether unconsciously.
Karolym aaid a man who, with hjs wife,
had entertained her at dinner the evening
before bumped Into her as she was coming
out of The Bee building and never seemed
to realize that an apology would be In
order. Now, Jack, I'll wager the cigars
that man didn't know whether It was a
woman or the doorpost he bumped Into,
and In all probability he didn't know he
had bumped Into anything at all. The
chances are, at that very moment he was
engrossed with some deal be had on whereby
he could make the price of a new sealskin
for his wife or daughter In society.
Why, only the other evening I was walk
ing leisurely up the street looking at tha
Christmas goods In the shop windows and
ran right square Into a woman atandlng
n the sidewalk.
For Karolyne's sake, I am glad to say I
had presence of mtnd enough to apologise,
but had It been during the rush of the day
I dare say I should not hava known whether
she was a woman or a lamp post. I will
add, also, that ahe did not accept my
apology very graciously.
She took a bank teller to task, too, be
cause he unconsciously let a aterm door
wing back In her face as she waa enter
ing. Now, if a paying teller la lucky
enough to get outside of that same storm
door during business hours, It must have
been that he was returning from a lunch
that he may hava had fifteen minutes to
eat, or possibly thirty minutes If It were
not a very busy day, and hla mind was

balance of the day. It you want to amok

John Francis of the Burlington railroad,
who on this occasion represented all ot the

The committee, after a general discus
slon of the conditions, appointed a sub
committee to draft a plan of organization
this plan to provide for the division of
commissions on sales made as tho result of
the . advertising done by the association
The subcommittee at 11:30 reported that It
had under consideration a plan which would
be effective, but could not report fully
until 2 o'clock. The committee then ad
journed until 1:30.
At the afternoon session the subcom
mittee submitted an exhaustive report to
the effect that there should be formed In
each county if possible, or in a district
to be composed of several counties, an as
sociation for the purpose of advertising
the particular dlstrfct of the state and
that all of the associations should unite,
through the state association, to advertise
the state aa a whole.
Each Member to Work.
Each member of the state association 1
urged to take up- the matter of local or
district organization and the atate officer
are to co-operate to as great an extent aa
possible, ' but the greatest reliance Is
placed In the general passenger agents of
the Nebraska railroads, who, through John
Francis of the Burlington, promised to as
sist In the formation of the subordlnata
associations and to visit any town in the
state where an association Is to be formed
under this plan.
After Its formation the members of each
association will contribute to a fund to
advertise the section and when the funds
are large enough may send Into the east
a personal representation to secure Immi
gration to the state.
The question of the formation of a press
bureau was referred to a special commit
tee, consisting of E. A. Benson and O. C.
Wallace, which will formulate a plan to
bring the matters relative to Nebraska be
fore the people of the country through tho
daily and weekly press. This plan cannot
be fully developed at this time, as Its suc
cess depends upon the total recelpta of tha
association, it being estimated that $1,000
may be used by the press bureau out of
each $2,500 contributed to tha state asso
ciation. S. Burns'
