HATI'RDAY Cadet offlcer1 hop; Mrs. W.
T. Burns' buffet luncheon.
The Pan-Hellenic dance, the Cotillion
Hub's mafk party and one or two other
really exceptional afTalrS aaved last, week
from being absolutely dull. A a matter
of fact, it did not develop all that It
promised, and If It had not been for the
matinee and that never falling standby,
the luncheon, the visiting girl might have
had some real reason to feel neglected.
Besides affording a most delightful even
ing to a hundred or more college men and
women, the rnnrllellcnle dance served to
awaken the college spirit pretty generally
among Omaha graduates and fraternity
members and perhaps, too, to stimulate a
little more sympathetic understanding and
tolerance of the generous collection of fads
with which that over-energetic set, sent
back to school last month. Indulged Itself
and amaxed It friends and relatives dur
ing the holidays. At least one father has
come to see things a little differently since
Thursday night and Friday he Increased
the check mailed to a 14-year-old son In a
Connecticut school, as his month's allow
ance. "I had come mighty near forgetting
something," he remarked to his wife.
The Riding club has already' proven a
boon that promises to rob the Lenten sea
son of Its worst that Is, If the weather Is
half way possible. At all times of the day,
but more specially the early part, one may
see some of the enthusiasts out for a canter
on the boulevard. In the parka or even on
the downtown streets. Omaha Is coming
to have a lot of good saddle horses and
this has led to the discovery that Omaha
also has a lot of women who look Im
mensely well on horseback as well as
other' places. And not a few good whips
are to be found among them, too; such
accomplished ones, in fact, that. the auto
fever Is threatened with a backset among
the fashionable women. Considered aside
from the .actual sport, almost any woman
looks better In a chic riding habit or driv
ing costume. handling the ribbons," than
she does hidden behind the goggles and the
rest of the outlandish gear prescribed for
women motorists. Of course, there Is the
ladylike, nttle electric buggy with Its nice
little, belt, that admits of stunning cos
tumes, but If It is the sport that the
woman Is after, that thrill that comes back
through the tight-drawn reins or with
every throb of the machine, there Is simply
nothing to do but put on the goggles, tie
on one's clothes and take the wheel or
' else hold on tight while somebody else does.
As a -matter of fact, one recognizes the
woman by her machine, for women motor
ists look wonderfully alike. Fashion has
as yet failed to evolve anything attractive!
In the way of automobile clothes, and about
the only thing that remains In the way of
variety Is the color of veils. But there are
some enthusiastic women motorists In
Omaha, and one forgets all about how they
look In his admiration of tho dexterity with
which they manage their machines.
A lot of people are out of town Just at
present more than most people realize tin
less they have had occasion to check up a
guest list of late. The gadfly has been at
STOMACH OX THR BRAIN.
WTiat If a Mnn Gsln the Whole World
and Ix)ne Ilia Appetlfp?
The man with the weH behaved stomach
never thinks about It. He eats what he
likes, and likes what he eats. He knows
he'll enjoy it, because he knows he has a
stomach that will easily digest It. All
things look good to him; lie will sit close
to the table, and with a merry twinkle In
bis eye and a world-peace expression, he
will "start" on the delicious meal before
But the man with the had. brawhy, gurgly
stomach is flie man who is always think
lng about 1L He can seldom eat what he i
most likes, und seldom likes what he eats, i
Ills stomach worries him before meals, j
after meals and between meals. It is on i
bis brain. It robs him of his cheer ar.d
Interferes with his dally work. Around i
him is a dark spirit which presses Itself
forward In his thoughts, crying: "I am
agony. I nm disgust. I am nausea. I am
sickness, languor, worry. I am conceived
In quick lunches and pappy food, and nour
ished by gulpy meals. I roh brains of their
forces and bodies of their life. I steal
away nerve and vim. I bring heart disease
and apoplexy. I make the world a pit
of weariness and darkness. I am woe, I
am death. I am dyspepsia. But jet, I
bring also hope, light and future health,
because of my gloomy presence I give you
warning and a chance to escape me."
This Is a bad drenni. but It is tho daily
dream of the dyspeptic. If it were not for
the white we couldn't tell the black. If
it were not for dyspepsia wo couldn't
know the Joy. the happiness of u well or
dered digestion. All the world looks blight
to a man of good health, and good health
is impossible without a good hearty stom
ach. Ami any sick or weak stomach can
l made a good, strong one by Just taking
something which will digest jour food for
you. Instead of letting your tired stomach
do It. Stuapt's Dyspepsia Tablets are the
most effective little tablets in the world for
this very thing. If you feel bloated after
eating, or you have nausea, aversion to
food, brash, irritation, sour stomach, heart
burn or dyspepsia. Stuart Dyspepsia Tab
lets will stop It because one grain of an In
gredient of these tablets will digest S.OOO
grains of Mod.
,our stomach is overworked. Let It take
a rest. You're not yourself when you hava
a bad stomach. Thee tal lets will do the
work that the stomach has to do and make
von feel bright, think clearly nnd give you
ambition and power to concentrate j-our at
tention na your work. You'll feel good.
You should always have a box of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets on your dining table.
They will make you get all the good pos
sible nut of aver) thing you eat, and you'll
work and one after another the people hare
slipped away off to Florida or Cuba or Cal
ifornia, or some other place, until little
Omaha colonies exist In a doxen or more
w-lnter resorts along the Pacific and Qulf
coasts. And they are not all gone yet,
either. . A number are only waiting for the
first show of bad weather to run away
until after Tvent.

GOOD TIMES 0N THE PACIFIC
fterrlt Fort leeplr Impressed with
Natural Dranty and Man's Enter
prise In California
Oerrlt Fort, assistant general passenger
agent of the Union Pacific, who has been
making a three weeks' trip through the
west, has returned and brings glowing re
ports of the prosperity which Is enveloping
the wholo western country.
"I have been to California a number of
times, but have never before seen it under
more favorable conditions," said Mr. Fort,
"or been so deeply impressed with the be
lief that the development of the state Is as
yet In Its Infancy. For some days before
1 my arrival in southern California there had
been a heavy rainfall, which was much
needed. When I arrived the weather was
beautiful and continued so during my en
"The orange growers of southern Cali
fornia are commanding fairly high prices
for their product this year and are happy
and prosperous. Jjoa Angeles and the towns
surrounding It are developing at a rate
that fairly astounds an eastern man. but
the growth seems to be a substantial one
and not at all of the mushroom variety,
although there Is an unmistakable boom.
The building of the San Pedro, Los An
geles & Salt Lako railroad has been an Im
portant factor In giving an Impetus to the
development of southern California, and
the low rates which all of the transconti
nental railway lines have made each spring
and fnll for the last few years, and which
will lie again authorized this year from
February 16 to April 1, have been the means
of uttracting hundreds of thousands of
tourhts, a considerable portion of whom
either have remained In the state or made
"A noticeable fact which I heard com
mented upon -frequently by California peo
ple Is that a large portion of recent settlers
in that state came from Nebraska, Iowa,
Minnesota and Dakota. It seemed to me
nearly every man I met In Los Angeles,
Pamxdena Riverside. Long Eeach and the
other towns I vielted in the southern part
of the state hulled from Iowa or Nebraska
Cnlifornians are congratulating themselves !
on securing this desirable class of settleis.
"From Los Angeles I went to San Fran
cisco over the Coast line of the Southern
Pacific, stopping en route nt San Jose,
which Is located In the beautiful Santa
Clara valley. This valley 1b, to the eye ut
least, the most attractive spot In all Cal
ifornia. It is one vat garden of deciduous
irults and grapes, he orc'.iai ds being mainly
In the valley and the vlueyurds covering
half way to their summits the hills which
"Our representative in the Santu Clara
valley is Mr. R.- S. Ruble, who is well
known In Omaha. He showed me a letter
from Mr. Goerlitz, businea manager of the
Metropolitan Opera company and who Is Mr.
Ruble's per8"nal friend, telling Mr. Ruble
that he was thinking seriously of making
the Santa Clara valley his permanent home,
and asking him to look around for a suit
able place which he could examine on his
r.ext trip to California. Coming from a
man who is familiar with the whole of
Europe and who has lived for years In
Italj', It aeems to me this la a pretty high
testimonial to the attractiveness of life In
"One may search the 1'nited States with
out finding more hospitable or generous
hosts than the California people. They all
take a deep pride In the development of
their magnificent state and are anxious to
show It all to visitors from the east, and I
do not know of any more attractive place
in which to sojourn or abide permanently
unleaa It la Nebraska."

at present, to manage a collection of fra&ied

gilt i mats. This Is very suitable for water
colors and even oils, If not too large, look
well framed this way.
The committee are asking only our best
known artists to contribute to this trav
eling gallery, feeling sur It will be a very
great means of education to the people of
interior towns, who are far from art cen
ter. At the end of the club year they
will be hung by the art committee In a well
liifnted room In the capltol at St. Paul dur
ing t lie Biennial Meeting of the Federation

Hoping for a favorable reply. I am.

committee a collection of about eighty
water colors, oils and etchings for exhibition.
These have been Insured by the committee
and are securely boxed and ready for ship
ment. Any club may have this collection
of original paintings for one week, the only
expense being the cost of transportation
from Its last place of exhibition. Informa
tion regarding the exhibit may be had from

Dr. Holovtcliiner, In an address on "The
Religions of Russia" before Mu Sigma on
Wednesday, assured the American woman
that she ranked first among the women
f the world. In his opinion, and spoke in
un amusing way of the American woman
abroad, with her masculine companion
(presuniubly a man who had Imd his nose
to the grindstone while she imbibed cul
ture!, whom she was showing about, the
man hanging to her superior skirts tho
while. The doctor spoke of the origin of
the Russian church, the schism In the Ro
man church, which was Its cause, and the
vurlous forms of dissent, two of which
have found refuge on our own shores
the Doukhobortsl In Canada and the Men
nonltes in Jansen. Neb. He spoke of the
Jew. the Russian outcast, his persecutions,
particularly at the hands of the mujik or
peasant, to whom he is still the sleyer of
the Christ whom thej- reverence, to which
crime is added that of worldly prosperity.
Dr. Holovtchiner also paid a fine tribute
to Tolstoi, wh'im he characterized as hav
ing run the gamut of religious thought
and feeling, closing with a few lines in the
original Russian, the beauty of which
language he assured his hearers Is ex

All telephone riunibers in the Harney ex
change district have hcn given the prefix
"Harney" In order to distinguish them from
those at the old office.
With the rapid growth during the past
year the Telephone company ha Increased
the number of subscriber in Omaha to
12,000. and the ultimate capacity of the
switchboard In the main office, which Is
of the largest type designed, has been
reached. In order that the subscribers
may get immediate Fcrvlce, each line In an
exchange must be within the reach of each
operator, and the largest switchboard at
the present time does not permit of placing
more than 12,000 subscriber In front of an
operator. The only recourse for Increasing
beyond this point Is to establish a second
exchange. It then becomes necessary to
use a prefix, that the operator may know
through which office to make the connec
tion. Where the patron takes individual
lino service, the Telephone company has
been able In most cases to retain tho same
number In the new office, merely adding
the prefix, but In many cases where a
number doe not appear In the new ex
change it has been necessary to assign a
The official of the company appreciate
the annoyance to the subscribers and the
drag on the service Introduced by a change
In numbers, nnd wish to assure nil sub
scribers that no changes have been made
which were not absolutely necessary.
The automatic circuits for making con
nections between the telephone exchanges
have been so perfected that tho subscriber
knows no difference in the service from
what he has been accustomed to in the
one exchnnge. If each subscriber of the
Telephone company will use care In re
ferring to the new directory for all num
bers and give distinctly to the operator
the prefix and new number, his service
will be the same as he has received here
tofore. In connection with the opening of the new
exchange tho Telephone company has
greatly extended Its underground system,
placing all of the more Important lines
underground. In addition to this, as far
as possible, the open wire leads have been
abandoned and replaced by cable, nnd
wherever possible distribution has b-en
placed In the alleys and on propertj- lines
in the rear of buildings In order to keep
the streets as free an possible from poles.
