St. Valentine' eve and the kie were gTay,
And the frnsen snows were deep.
When I suddenly started wide awake
From a wound and dreamless aleep.
The air was full of a rustling noise,
And I saw by the firelight red
A throng of beautiful shimmering shapes
That circled around my bed.
There were maids in lilac and blue and pink
With spangles of silver and a-nld.
And youths in powder and velvrt coals.
With eyea both merry and bold;
And doves that bore In their tiny beaks.
Or under their downy wings,
Loveknots acure, and billets doux,
And hearts and roses and rings.
"We come from the wonderful Land of Bliss
Where Cupid Is king," they said,
"And music of lutes Is the fashion yet.
And debts with kisses are paid;
And every year, come snow or blow.
We return to the world once more.
Each bearing vows from a lover true,
To leave Ht a maiden's door."

SATLRDAY-Mrs. Frank Mailer's luncheon.
While In the main, last week was dull
to the extent of being oppressive, there
were a few pretty affairs and one, at
least, that will stand out conspicuously
In the memory of the fashionables after
the season is over that was the Orcutt
Keellne wedding. It was a beautiful af
fair, but an even more distinguishing fea
ture of it was the general popularity of the
bride. As for the other things, they were
mostly card parties or a round of lunoh
eons and small affairs In honor of the
visiting girls and Included the little coterie
of friends of the hostesses or of the honor
guests. This week St. Valentine will wear
the crown, and from Monday until Satur
day society will employ the red heart, the
emblem of the little god, to stamp Its
score cards, decorate its rooms and . for
every other possible purpose. Wednesday's
calendar is full and It Is a friendless one
Indeed who has not some Invitation for
Society Is responding loyally to the wish
of the Visiting Nurses association that
February 23, might be left open for the
afternoon and evening reception, the an
nual "birthday party" of the association,
which will be given at the Elks' club on
that date. As the association claims
among It membership many of the most
prominent society women, the birthday
party promises to be a brilliant affair.
In fact, these women evidently Intend to
see to It that It Is, for many of the
fashionable women have discouraged other
hostesses entertaining on Washington's
birthday by announcing their Intention to
decline all Invitations that the Visiting
Nurses may have that day Just as far
as can be arranged. One of the local
patriotic societies graciously conceded that
day to the Nurses for their annual recep
tion, willing to co-operate to make this
Omaha's one annual charity function as
great a success as possible. In speaking
of the reception an officer of the asso
ciation said: "It Is not our wish to
.. monopolise Washington's birthday, for we
appreciate that many hostesses would
naturally like to entertain then, but we
. have observed that day for so many years
for our birthday party that we can not
very well make a change. This year It
was decided to hold the evening as well
as the afternoon reception, and we felt
sure that other women would willingly
co-operate with us In the Interest of this
very deserving charity."

CHANGES ON FARNAM STREET
Old-Tlmer Recalls Some Passing
History, Soa-gested by
The sale of the corner lot at Eighteenth
and Farnam streets to the Woodmen Circle
to erect a handsome modern store and
office building on it mnkes necessary the
early removal of the old house long occu
pied as a home by Edwin Haney, and Its
removal will see the passing of the last
of the remnants of early Omaha on the
Farnam street block between Eighteenth
and Nineteenth streets.
"Few people who pass along this block
realize the changes that house has wit
nessed and could tell about if It could
speak," said an old-timer, musing on the
news of the sale. "In the first place, Far
nam street had been graded twice before
the Haney house was built. The crest of
the hill was originally nearly thirty feet
above the present street level and a third
cut came later, leaving this place some
fifteen feet up in the air, as we see It to
day. "In the early days the north side of
Farnam street at this point had the prefer
ence In being built up. At the corner where
the Davldge block stands was the resi
dence of Captain T. W. T. Richards, an
old foundryman a brick structure trans
formed by reconstruction Into a castle-like
building, with a grim square tower. Just
west on the property recently acquired
by Mrs. Dufrene was the old Porter home,
the home of the parents of Mrs. Haney,
with whom the Haney'a lived for a while
In fact for some time after the house
across the street was erected, for that T
remember was at one time occupied by
the Pritchard family. Adjoining the Porter
place on the west, on the lot where the
new Derlght store Is, were two more frame
houses, one occupied by Rev. M. O. Mo
Koon, who Is still living In California, and
the other by several families In succession,
among them the family of Martin Dunham.
The Nineteenth street corner, on which
the Omaha Commercial college has been
built, held a little wooden house In which
lived an old Scotch stonemason named
Thompson and his family. One of the
Thompson girls Is, I believe, still teaching
In our schools.
"The south side of the street was. as I
have said, but sparsely settled. West of
the Haney house was a frame cottage
occupied by Overall, the colored letter
carrier who died a few years ago, and
west of that were nothing but vacant lots.
The site of the Overall house was later
Improved by the erection of a triple flat
building by the late Chris Hartman. The
little cottage on the Eighteenth street side
of the corner lot was put up by the
Haneys for Dave Kimball, the popular
city ticket agent of the Northwestern road.
Kimball la dead, but his widow and
daughter are heard from occasionally from
out In Washington state. Haney has al
ways said he was going tb hold his corner
until it brought him (50,000, and now he
has realized his figure. That Is what I call
faith In Omaha."

WOMAN II CLUB AND CHARITY
The editor of the woman's department
of the Western Laborer, commenting edi
torially upon last Monday's meeting of
the social science department of the Wom
an's club, when the Consumers' league label
and the trades union labels were discussed,
wonders If the club women understand that
the women's auxiliaries In the trades unions
are and have for several years past been
agitating and so creating the demand for
union made goods union label goods which
Insure all and more than the white label of
the Consumers' league representsT Prob
ably the majority of club women are not
familiar with the valiant work of the
wives of union men or even that there Is
such a thing as union label or for what It
stands, but they may be assured that the
club women are glad of such opportuni
ties as last Monday afternoon afforded to
learn more about It and that theirs Is a
sympathetic Interest. It Is evident, how
ever, that the members of the Woman's
auxiliary and the representatives of the
unions are little more familiar with the
work of the club. Its alms and accomDllsh-
ments. than the club women are with them
and theirs. It la but natural that they
should wonder at the necessity of the
Consumers' league, when all that It guar
antees and more Is Included by the union
labels, and the question naturally follows
why, when club women learn of the union
label they ally themselves with the Wom
en's auxiliary In creating the demand for
union made goods.
There Is a reason, and a good one, for
the existence of the Consumers' league and
why club women should support It. The
club movement Is broad, so broad that It
takes In a score of Interests that concern
women In every stage and every degree of
society. The Woman's club exists no more
for philanthropic or altruistic work than
for music, art, literature or self-culture.
There are among Its most prominent mem
bers women known the country over as
specialists In every branch and every ac
tivity that pertains to or Interests women,
and so the club, as a club, Is In conse
quence forced to keep to the conservative
middle ground that will not Incur further
prejudice than already exists against the
activity of women outside of the home to
accomplish the best results. The club, as
a club, can not be partisan, and so It has
shunned politics and like entanglements.
Woman's clubs were organized originally
for self culture. This was the only sort of
organization permitted or consistent with
woman's "sphere" less than half a century
ago. Sixteen years ago. after much hard
work and oppowltlon, not the least of which
was from the conservative women them
selves, a national organization was effected
and since then the altruistic work has gone
forward amazingly. The state organization
has strengthened the woman's movement
materially, and gradually the woman's club
has become a power that Is not realized by
the majority of the women themselves.
Men. however. In their larger experience,
realize the possibilities of this aggregation
of the flower of American womanhood, but
men do not understand, as do those who
have helped to build this force, all of Its
weak points or the difficulties under which
this splendid organization has been accom
plished. Men, and a surprisingly large number of
men, do not realize that one of the club's
greatest handicaps In the tendency to
broader and larger effort, and Industrialism
comes In here. Is the conservatlveness of
women themselves. It Is not every woman
who has the moral courage to brave ridicule
by disregarding the conventionalities and
traditions that have prevailed for centuries.
The club woman has not always had the
sympathetic backing of her husband and
her male relatives by any means, or even
of her sister club woman. If she chances to
be a member of the social science depart
ment, for example, and would serve with a
committee to Investigate the extent to
which the state labor law for women Is en
forced In the department stores of her town,
or ascertain who carries white labeled
goods, she Is not only likely to bring em
barrassing complications to her husband's
business Interests, but to Incur the disap
proval of her club sister In the art or music
or literature departments, whose husband's
Interests may perchance be Involved In the
enforcement of hnt labor law. Still, she of
the social science department Is no more a
club woman than she of the art, music or
literature department, and their personal In
terests may be directly conflicting. There
are thirteen departments In the Omaha
Woman's club. "I'nlty In Diversity" Is the
club woman's motto, and be It said to her
credit she has preserved this unity magnifi
cently. And so. when the club Is accused of In
consistency let Its critics take everything
Into consideration. It is a different thing
with the member of the woman's auxiliary,
for the personal Interests of her self and
husband are not only Involved, but she has
the support and backing of her husband's
Cleanses and beautifies the
teeth and purifies the breath.

organisation as well. Among the most prom
inent club women of the east who are con
tending for child labor legislation, factory
Inspection, the abolishing of the sweat shop
and of a score oT other Industrial evils that
bring wealth to the manufacturer, are the
wives of some of these very manufacturers.
They give of their wealth and their time,
their Intelligence and their Influence. The
rest of the club women are supplementing
this effort, and little by little the results
have begun to come. The club women real
izes that her conquest must be one of edu
cationeducation that shall rectify and
equalize and not the least of this educa
tion has to be done among the conservative
members of her own sex.
"Our Proxies In Industry" wll be the
subject upon which Miss Mary McDowell
of Chicago, president of the Illinois
Women's Trades' Union league will ad
dress the Second district of the Nebraska
Federation at Its annual meeting at the
First Congregational church Monday after
noon at 3:30 o'clock. As may be readily
recognized, the proxies referred to are
the women In the factories and trades
who are doing the work that only a gen
eration or so ago was done In the home,
and whoso labor makes -it possible for the
heme women to attend club meetings,
travel and otherwise follow their Inclina
tions. It was following Miss McDowell's
Impassioned appeal for the women in In
dustry before the Wisconsin State Federa
tion meeting last fall that the resolution
proposed by Mrs. B. C. Gudden of Oshkosh,
chairman of the Wisconsin Consumer's
league, requesting that congress make an
adequate appropriation for the Investiga
tion of the Industrial conditions of women
was passed. The resolutions were again
passed by the Illinois Federation and Miss
McDowell, with Jane Addams, Lillian
Wald of the Nurses' Settlement of New
York were appointed a committee by the
National Women's Trades Union league
to present the matter to President Roose
velt. Their suggestion was received with
enthusiasm, and later embodied In the
president's message. The General Federa
tion of Women's clubs have taken up the
matter and, organized In congressional dis
tricts, as this body is, the women are
peculiarly well fitted to push the agitation
and bring influence to bear upon congress.
If auch an Investigation is made It will
be the first investigation Into the labor
conditions of women ever made officially.
Miss McDowell Is one of the most promi
nent women In settlement work and her
address before the club will be one of the
features of the year. An Important feature
of Monday morning's program, omitted
from the original announcement, will be a
paper on "The Merit System In the De
