Jfn Degnlte Information
The I rent thing before the mind of
South Omaha people last night was the
rharlty hull at the exchange building. The
entire floor of the largo dining room n
utilised for dancing. Ae noon a the lunrh
hour . was over yeaterday the women In
teracted in the hospital association took
matter In hand. Thr spent moat of the
afternoon, in preparing the decoration.
There consisted of long loops of bunting
and tissue overhead' and along the side
of th room and alternated with them
were a hundred or more of red cross pen
nant. Thee" pennant were while, each
bearing the familiar red cross near the
bait. Then from every available, place
were: hung variou pattern of Japanese
lantern. About the raised platform which
wti occupied by the orchestra a large
rumor of palm were grouped. This was
along the north wall of the building. Opposite-
this was the department set apart
fo '.refreshment.' '
The crowd began to gather between the
hour of arid a In the evenlns nd con
Untied to nwt'J until nearly lo o'clock. A
a result th'e hall wa filled to overflowing
by th time of the opening grand march
This began promptly at 9 p. in. and It was
jxirtlclnnted In by several hundred of the
best people of the city.
Almost every prominent family in town
had its representatives. Everybody caught
the spirit of good feeling as the ticket
we're passed to the doorkeepers. In each
dance the floor was occupied to Its capacity
ami the people eager to participate were
still' standing abdut the walls. The open
ing march and quadrille were equally well
enjoyed. Number 8 and It of the pro
gram, besldf the opening, were the only
diversion from the "round dances." so-
called:' No. 8 was the lanciers and No. 14
. aa another regular quadrille. No. 5, the
walta, ."Oxford," and No. 11 the "Chicago
Glide," and No. 13, the "Berlin," were espc
dallr enjoyed, by the dancers. The or
chestra- frequently encored and four
extra dances were given.
The effort of the committees which have
been planning the entertainment for so
many - week received many hearty com
mendatlon from every Ide. The officer
of.tha South Omaha Hospital association
were ' ex-ofUcio helpers among the guests
last night and mado themselves almost
omnipresent. The proceeds of the cigar
stand In the Exchange lobby as well as
the refreshment sold inside were turned
to the credit of the association. The ball
closed at too late an hour to get the status
of the finance, but there I no doubt of
there being a large margin of profit.
V - Talk Sew Parking- riant.
No' one about the South Omaha yard
nor among the real estate men was to be
foond yesterday who knew about the ru
mored' proposition of the Schwarzschtld &
Hulaberger company of Chicago locating a
, branch packing establishment at this point
Though many of them thought that It was
nof without the pale of possibility, end
that' such a company would be most wel
come both to the yard's company and
the: people of the city, few were found
who held out a definite belief In the matter
HI known, however, that a representative

In the near future erect a small cold stor-
ge such as the packing companies al
ready have In Omaha. But there Is no evi
dence In South Omaha to warrant the belief
n any immediate plan which will affect
The Swift. Morris & Fairbanks com
pany ha taken tlie preliminary steps
oward erecting a plant on the old Tom
Ryan property which has been In the
possession of the company for the paat
ve year. This lies just south of the
present Swift plant. It is raid that this
will be a tannery and soap factory and
will also be for the tnsnufaeture of cer
tain grades of canned meats for the export
rade. The first thing necessary will be to
secure the promise of the railroads to
build a spur track for the accommodation
of the locality. It may be that with the
opening of the spring construction will
be begun, but this is not positively af-
rmed. No definite announcement of plans
can be expected from tne pacKing com
panies while the Investigations are lit
progress in Chicago.
Work an Hamiaesi riant.
C. P. Monahan and O. V. Christlansoa
of Chicago are In the city looking after the
Interests of the National Packing com
pany, and more especially to talk over the
plans of the company with respect to the
Hammond plant.. Few people are aware
of the extent of the renovations being
effected there. They now have most of the
gTound cluSied west of the plant, which
wu formerly occupied by a serlea of yards
and a few of the smaller building. It Is
n this) place that the new power plant In
all probability will be erected. Space for
a great building has been cleared there
und It It Is true that the prlolpal plant of
the National company Is to b- transferred
from Chlcugo to South Omaha. It will call
for a powerful plant. The work has been
progressing rapidly and the buildings have
been stripped of the unround timbers for
the greater part and the work of recon
struction csn begin on a large scale. For
this work the first consignment of new
timber has arrived. Before the week Is
out there will be great piles of timbers
ricked up on the ground. Knough Is on the
way to fill all the available snace on the
side next .o the O street viaduct.
ew Feed In a- Ranch,
Lehmer Erothere, rattle feeders, have re
cently bought forty acres of land in the
vicinity of Seymour lake for the location
of their new cattle feeding operations.
They bought the property belonging to Dr.
stiller. They have sent out four carloads
of lumber fop the yarding and buildings !
and are vacating their former location at ,

county and they bring consignments of
stock here for feeding to hsve them near
the local markets.
School Board Rays Property.
The Board of Education, contrary to ex
pectatlons, took up the matter of the
school site at Its meeting Wednesday night.
It derided to purchase the site at the
southwest corner of Sixteenth and II
streets as the location for the new school.
It was bought for 21,400, and comprises
lots 1, 2. 2, 143. The land lies a little above
grade. The board will have enough avail
able funds to order the plans drawn for
the new building, but there will not be
enough to begin the building until after
the next levy. This will not be available
until the first of August. It Is hoped after
that to get the building completed before
the time of the opening of the school in the
Rlle-y Fined for BltlnsT Bar.
Fred Riley, a colored man, who bit Atvln
William's ear off In a fight in the Cudahy
Packing company's boiler room last Sat
urday evening, was fined 1100 end coats
yesterday;- Williams is the chief fireman
for the Cudahy company and he ordered
Riley to let a certain Are alone, saying that
somebody els would attend to it. , For
some reason this angered Riley, who Is
said to have struck Williams. . After this
a fight occurred. In the course of which
Riley got hold of Williams' right ear and
began tearing and biting. He severed It
almost completely from the head.

WCMA1 U CLUI ARB CHARITY
The Boston Olobe relates an amusing
sequel to the recent decision of the su
preme court of New Brunswick that a
woman could not be admitted to the bsr
even though sh- passed the examination.
The statute . provides, that any "person"
with certain qualifications shall be ad
mitted, but the supreme court held that a
won, an Is not n person within the meaning
of the law. "Shortly after this remarkable
decision," says the Olobe. "a sharp-eyed
representative of the sex saw In that fe
clslon a loophole to escape when arraigned
before the judge of the 81. John's police
court on a minor offense. She contended
that only 'persons' were subject to the
penalty and pointed out that under the
ruling of the supremo court women do not
come In that category. She declared that
she was determined to stand on her rights.
The claim wa so novel that the judge re
leased her, but announced that his decision
was not to be taken a a precedent."
Editor Frank Kennedy of the Western
Laborer announced before the social science
department of the Woman's club thl week
that in his opinion men made their chief
mistake in not admitting women more gen
erally a their helpers In th struggle of
the trade unions. He saw, through the
women, the fullest possibilities of th union
label, as the women do most of th buying.
He concluded by saying: "Th woman who
keeps the home going, the children dressed
presentably and in school and meet all th
other domands Incidental to her position on
the average man's salary. Is, In my opin
ion, the greatest financier of th age." Mr.
Kennedy expressed his Intention of adding
the cut of the Consumers' league label to
the list of union labels now being published
In the Western Laborer that union men and
women may become familiar with It and
help Its cause as well as their own.
There Is every reason why women should
be Interested In the agitation for puro
food legislation so general Just at present.
Iowa women are especially Interested In
view of the pure food bill to com before
their state legislature this winter, and
Mrs. J. C. Cory, chairman of the house
hold economics committee of the Iowa
Federation of Women's club ha sent out
the following reasons for the consideration
of club women:
1. Because statistics tell us that 75 tier
cent of all the money spent. 1 spent by
or for women. As a purchasing agent
nnsminiifd. deleterious iooos may not
with safety be put on the market in Iowa;
ana ml in money ne urmaa m

2. Bersuso P5 per cent of all f od eaten
is prepared by women. In a woman's
hands lies the safe keeping of the health
of the family. It Is her duty to us only

were reasonably pure and contained only
sucn suDsiances as ineir inoeis ntaien
and not some Inferior and deleterious com
pound. 2. Because a pur food law well en
forced would result In a saving of time
to women. The hours spent. In - home
preparation of foods, purchased as nearly
natural products as possible, might be
saved If women could with safety substi
tute foods prepared In factory, packing
house or bakery. Our grocers would than
realise an Increase In their trade.
,4. Because these easy, sure methods of
preserving food by the help of chemicals
are gradually creeping Into the home
preservation of frnlls. vegetables, pickle,
etc., which has hitherto depended on good
quality of material and upon absolute
cleanliness, sterilization and car. A phy
sician who is also a housekeeper, used a
powder, wnirn nas,ieen extensively sold
in Iowa, In putting up some rorn.- Upon
opening her oens recently she found her
corn "beaumuliy emnaimea." but unilt
women have studied
chemlsiry of foods and principles of nu
trition; They know that digestion is largely
a fermentative- process and most of tho
chemical preservative are used to arrest
fermentation. Whatever stops fermenta
tion In the csn arrests it In the human
nmciiine ana maigesuon ronows.
. Because it is the poor who suffer.
The hiaheet grades of food are less llabli
to be adulterated. People of i.-eans have
sary as a labor-saver. It is the poor
dweller In the tenement who is attacked
