of money m the construction of these cars,

motor cars, and they are built entirely of

the steel sheets In position, except tha floor.
and the remainder Is of steel.
Motor car No. I also made a trial trip
from Columbus to Omaha Saturday which
was very successful. This car Is different
from No. t In that It has a 100-horse power
engine, whereas No. has a 200-horse power
engine. : A new' trailer, also was taken to
Colombus for a tryout and this Is a gem t
mechanical Ingenuity. It Is built entirely
of steel with ball bearings and two men
could push It around. It Is Intended for
mall and baggage. Tha engine of No. I

A remarkable advantage In this engine
Is that the car speed Is almoet entirely

d day or August, 190C
It falls to ths lot of few priests to have
their personal work specially praised by
the pope and to receive from tha holy
father his personal blessing and congratu
lation such as the above, which has come
to Father Patrick Judge of Sacred Heart
parish, in Omsha, This note was written
by the pope himself, and naturally le
treasured by Father Judge with the great
est degree of pride, though the father hesi
tated when asked that he give his permis
sion to the publication of the note and the
circumstances of Its receipt. His friends.
who know so well of nls untiring and faith
ful work, share his pride ln this great die
Unction which the hesd of ths Catholic
church has conferred upon him, and they,
with less cause for modesty than he, have
been, anxious that the father give his con
sent to the publicity of this honor.
Recently a personal friend of Father
Judge went abroad and on his Journey hs
visited Rome, being permitted to see the
pops. He hsd with him two photographs
of the Sacred Heart - school ln Omaha,
which Father Judge had been so vitally
Instrumental In building. The holy father
viewed the pictures with the utmost con
cern. One of the pictures shows a long
line of children stsndlng ln front of the
school, accompanied by Father Judge and
another priest. This was the source of
great pride to the pope, and he did not
hesitate to so express himself. He spoke
to Father Judge's friend In terms that
made Father Judge very proud and grate
ful when the friend Imparted the message
to him, but the pope did not merely ex
press himself In words. He took one of
the pictures, the one showing the children,
and across Its top, with his own pen,
wrote In Latin the Inscription above. Thla
picture, ' after It waa ascertained Fsther
Judge had It, the father allowed a reporter
for The Bee to see, and when asked for a
statement Father Judge merely said:
Father's Modeat Statement.
"The holy father vu kind enough to
say that he waa very much pleased with
my work, and In order to console and en
courage me he ssld he would send me his
autograph blessing. 80 he took this photo
of my junior school from the hands of the
ecclesiastic who presented It and ths other
one and sat down to his desk and wrote
the blessing as you see It and requested
that It be sent to me. Of course I am very
proud of It."
Father Judge has Just come out of a long
sick spell and Is not yet normally strong,
but this blessing from, the pope just at this
time has been the source of great comfort
to him. He will have the photo framed, as
the Inscription It bears is the highest
earthly tribute that could be pstd to the
life work of any priest. Those hosts of good
people who have sympathised with Father
Judge in the splendid work hs has been
carrying on and have aided, shsre with him
the supreme token that has come to him.

"The Education of Mr. Plpp," a visual
del'ght as developed by Chsrles Dana Gib
son, has been clothed with flesh and blood
and made Into a veritable fountain of fun
by Augustus Thomaa. The author didn't
bother himself a great deal about a plot
for the story; Just enough to string to
gether the characters suggested, by ths
artist, and around the framework thus
furnished has U raped a garb of the richest
humor. Mr. Pipp is a man of affairs, who
knows business and Is lost ln society. Mrs.

Mr. Bell apparently feels the responsi
bility he hss assumed In giving life to John
Wesley Plpp, and never for a moment re
laxes his effort to be funny. This has al
ways been a characteristic of his work, a
self-consciousness that chokes any spon
taneity. If he would only let up now and
then his work would be much more effective
and enjoyable. As the good-humored, father
of a family of which the mother poses as
the head, he has a splendid chance for all
his powers as a conledlan. '
The really enjoyable contribution to tha
comedy of the piece Is that furnished by
M1s Belle Gaffney, ss Mrs. Plpp. She
thoroughly realises the part of the un
cultivated woman who looks to her money
to carry her through, and who pretends to
a culture and position she Is In no way
fitted to assume. Yet withal shs evince

charming disregard to their application or

A DISCRIMINATING womtn recently said, "The cur
taint and portieres are of more importance than thev'
rugs or carpets used in a room, because the former stand up
clearly before you impress themselves upon you whereas.
the floor-coverings do not."
And she was right,. Just '
take a look around yourself
and see if your hangings do
not make or mar the atrhos-

How imperative then is care
