We call upon the moet.
There are two young men In town If
they were girls they would be called debu
tantes, and a ho, If they live long enough,
will doubtless attain membership In the
Country or Omaha club, for they are of that
et who have gained considerable experi
ence and not a little notoriety during the
week that will doubtless last them, through
out this winter at least. ; Up to date, the
club experience of these two aspirants for
octal favor consists chiefly In official po
sition In a certain Hlkelng club that won
more or less mention during the summer,
but of which little has been heard since
the weather got cold. It. may have been
a wish to keep up the standard of the club
or possibly only the love of a tramp that
prompts membership In that sort of or
ganization, but, however that may be, those
two young men, against the better Judg
ment of their business associates, started
out to walk to jCouncll Bluffs and back
about S o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, "Just
to get out In the storm." There Is every
reason to believe that they did tramp to
Council Blurts, for each of them has a
badly frosted left ear that has attained
rathar embarrassing proportions and,
though they are noncommittal as to the
return trip, tho fact that only the left ear
la frosted Is accepted as proof positive
that they did not walk back. There Is a
tory In circulation over across the river
to the effect that about 6:30 o'clock on
Tuesday evening, . during the worst of tho
atorm, a tall young man with a rather
short, hearyset companion, each dressed In
hlkeing costume, covered with snow and
with hair projecting In numerous icicles
from beneath their little caps, entered the
Grand hotel and asked tor a place where
they might make themselves presentable
for dinner. Whether or not they got the
dinner has not yet been, learned, but It
la a fact that they were mistaken for foot
ball players by two young women who were
accustomed to meeting them In dress suits,
and who were disposed to be anything: but

While everybody Is heartily glad of al
most anything that will add life to society,
. there Is one visiting woman In town Just at
present for whom a great deal has been
and la still to be done, who at least two
prominent society women devoutly wish had
never come to Omaha. Though innocently,
and doubtless unconsciously, she is none
the less eertalaly the cause of a coolness
between two matrons who have been friends
for years, uch friends in fact that their

A New Catarrh Care, Whleh la Rapidly

For several years. Red Gum, Blood root
and Hydrastln have been recognised as

cure of nasal catarrh, bronchial and throat
catarrh and In catarrh at the stomach.
Mr. F, N. Benton, whose addreas la care
of Clark House, Troy, N. T.. says: "When
I run up against anything that la good
I like to tell people of It. I have been
troubled with catarrh more or less tor
some time. Last winter more than ever.
Tried several so-caHvd cures but did not
get any benefit from them. About six
weeks ago I bought a 60-cent box of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and I am glad te
ay that they have done wonder for me
and I do not hesitate to let all my friends
know that Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are the
right thing." ' ,
Mr. Geo. J. Casanova of hotel Griffon.
Weat th street. New York City, writes:
"I have commenced using Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets and already they have given me
' better results than any catarrh cur I
have ever tried."
A leading physician of Pittsburg advises
the use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablet In pre

Though Lent is less than three weeks
off and society aware from past experience
that there will be comparatively little
doing after Ash Wednesday, no one seems
to exhibit any Inclination to Improve the
remaining time by giving anything of par
ticular consequence, though there are no
end ot small affairs. Even the debutantes
tave ample time nowadays people aeenj
to have gotten quite out of the way ot
doing things for them, which 1 unfortu
nate, a there 1 a sort of unwritten law
that debutante stall do little for them
selves, that is during their first season, and
It Is generally regarded as unfortunate that
their honor had to be divided with the
bride, at leaat, o early in the winter. It
must be admitted that tb girl who cam
out this year are exceptional, in several
ways, and while tbey have lived up to
all tradition concerning debutante, they
have managed not only to make the best
of their position of secondary consequence
Into which they have been crowded ot late,
but have devised entertainment for them
selves and not a few others. The Dramatic,
or Comedy, club Is an illustration ot their
enterprise, lot wkU U U &el Mwjrwted,

A Gift Enterprise

hearts into the head of a gift enterprise. It
be keep up th pace established tor him
this year he will soon rival S. Nicholas. It
seems only yester-year since tbe amorous
swain gave expression to his feelings in
burning words, hidden in the depths ot
paper lac and Impossible 'Cupids. Now
the approach of tbe affectionate old saint's
day finds the youhg man's thought, If not
his fancy, turning toward violets at ad
vanced prices, bonbons in extravagant re
ceptacles, and gifts quite out ot the old
simple spirit ot the day.
A fashionable shopkeeper insists that the
vogue of valentine gifts Is largely a matter
of evolution, and that tor several years they
have been growing more general, more per
sonal and more expensive. 'A young man
who usually is satisfied with sending the
object of his admiration flowers, bonbon
or books, now selects a gift that will show
relations of a more Intimate nature.

and their purse-strings run riot. Heart

ECHOES OFTKE ANTE ROOM
The second consistory of the Knights of
Kadosh to be Instituted In Nebraska was
given existence at Lincoln Thursday even
ing by Gustavo Anderson, Inspector general
of Scot.tisc Rite Masonry, assisted by Wil
liam Cleburn, Charles Huntington, Claude
Talbot and M. F. Funkhouser, all mem
bers of the Omaha consistory. The Knights
ot Kadosh is the name given to thai part
of the Scottish Rite which is included In
the thirtieth to thirty-second degrees, and
I therefore the highest 'division of the
order outside of the governing board, the
members of which are active members of
the thirty-third degree, this last degree
being limited, and conferred by reason of
the high qualities shown by members of
the Knights of Kadosh.
The meeting at Lincoln at which the
new consistory was formed was attended
by thirty-second degree Masons from all
parts of the state and tbe event was one
ot the most pleasant which has taken
place In Masonic circles for many months.
By the Institution of this lodge It gives two
places in the state where the highest de
gree can be conferred and members of the
order look forward with considerable In
terest to the growth of the new consistory,
marking, as It does, an epoch In the higher
circles of Masonry In the state.
Tbe California Conclave club, organized
a year or more ago by members of Mount
Calvary commander?, Knights Templar, la
meeting with considerable success. There
are now about 100 members who are pay
ing the monthly dues for the purpose of
creating a fund for the expenses of the
member at San Francisco, where the tri
ennial conclave will be held In September,
1904. At the inception of the club It was
intended to have a team of Mount Calvary
commandery compete for prizes at tho con
clave, as the national officers will, it Is
understood, follow th rule made at tbe
Louisville conclave In 1901 and permit con
tests for commandery trophies, but It is
now said that there will be no attempt on
the part of the local society to compete,
as the members of the Conclave club can
not spare the time to drill.
The drill of the Kntghts Templar are
said to be the finest of any of the so
cieties which have military features, and
some of the commanderles maintain a drill
master permanently. This has led at least
one of the commandery teams, that ot De
troit, to be barred from participation in
the competitions; It being acknowledged
that they are beyond the rivalry of the
other teams. It Is said that the drill mas
ter of that commandery Is a martinet who
bendB everything to his will and that no
person, no matter how exalted hi station
either In the order or In society at large.
Is permitted to Interfere with the work of
the team. He Is said to have addressed
one of the millionaire members ot tbe. team
who protested against an abrupt command
in this manner:
"You are a machine; not a man. You
have Just one second to decide whether you
will obey orders or leave the ranks for
good. We want people with ability to
march and understand orders and nothing
else. Will you go or stay?"
Tbe millionaire, after he recovered from
his surprise, decided to stay, but never
since has protested against an order, no
matter how abruptly made. It takes work
to make a prize-winning team and mem
bers ot Mount Calvary commandery are too

porationone providing for the extension
of the life of the association to seventy
years, or fifty years from April next, and
the other a' method by which future
amendment may be adopted.
These amendments have been approved
by the state banking department, and the
filing In the county clerk's office is a mere
formality. Their adoption and approval in
volved the association In a vast amount
of labor and gave the managers consider
able anxiety. '
When the association was organized in
April, 1883, the articles of incorporation
limited Its life to twenty years and omit
ted the usual clause providing for amend
ments. As the end of the twenty years
approached the directors consulted the
state banking department and were advised
that a unanimous vote of the shareholders
would be necessary to effect the needed
change. The proposed amendments were
then submitted to the shareholders, and
at tbe end ot eight months the association
submitted to the banking board the ap

A great deal of Inconvenience has been
caused on account of the few English his
tory textbooks at the high school. All the
histories In the library have been distrib
uted among the pupils, but there still re
main one or two classes without textbooks
for the coming year. This means that the
pupils without books must obtain their
Knowledge from outside sources. Never be
fore has a class studied history without
books, and much interest is taken In the
outcome of thlB clan. Mtos PfelfTer head
of the history department, will instruct the
classes without books.
