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 of the'tbiTsJiy'Wr'in the -city- about a month ago trying to make arrangements ,wth one of the local butchers to do some killing for the company to supply the local market.

It Is likely that tne company will 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 his city. 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 , rorij-iuuiiu ng vi nircu. ix-uil-i , ers have their principal ranches in Dundy 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 fan. 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. Special Election of Officers.

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 JVVrod nnsminiifd. deleterious iooos may not with safety be put on the market in Iowa; ana ml in money ne urmaa m bring its true equivalent in purity, strength and nutrition. 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 thore foods wmrn sue Knows to ne pun and tu nosKtss the requisite nutritive , GarnM. .Beatrice; Robert Hyland .Winner; values: the range of variety In food would ' " ' ' be grestly Increased could the house. I Martin Hoff, Wlsner: Mathew B. Hogan, keeper be assured that, under state super- ! Hubbard; A. B. Hull. L'lsea; J. W. Het yislon. the package, canned and prepared j r,cfc McCool Junction; W. II. Jackson. 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 for food. o. Because women have studied the 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 rh'of". Vrera sary as a labor-saver. It is the poor dweller In the tenement who is attacked aTJ"-" r.Umtlrum"n,,of C,"',ip food and whose families are often eoin- relied to live on prepared foods because both parents are at work all day aw-ty Nat?onal Assmcl'atlon 'of 'BtaIePDalryf and r ooa ijepanment states tnat 4o&.io Infants died In th year !M from adulterated food. Womeu are the babies' natural protector. Let them then push this pure food movement not only for their own benefit, but -for the help of those weaker one.
