Impossible to select appropriate ornaments

agitated ln the matter of Christmas cele
bratVm and It Is claimed that American!!
especially have grown entirely away from
the original significance of Christmas l-i
their meaningless and extravlgant practice
of gift making. There Is no better place
for beginning this reform than with the
Christmas tree. Instead of all the mean
ingless trappings, tne yards or tinsel and
Illuminating globes, why not employ some
of tho old time tilings, symbolic of Christ
mas instead of these gaudy substitutes.
In Germany the adornments of tho
Christmas tree are largely symbolical, hav
ing a religious significance, which the
children all understand and appreciate.

The meaning of the action of the Mllwaa.
kee in cutting freight rates from Chicago
to western points la not understood In
Omaha rsllroad circles. Some time ago ths
western roads decided to make a consid
erable cut in freight ratea to Utah common
points, and this cut also applied to certain
points In Montana, Ono thing Is apparent
, to Om.ilia Jobber, however, and that Is
that such a material cut from Chi
cago and Duluth to South lakota points
wil operate against Omaha.
It lus been expected that when ths
; Northwestern and Milwaukee roada had
completed their lines Into the Ulack Hills
rountry the through rates from Chicago
' to the Black Hills points would operate
. against Oiniiha. but no move was expected
at this time which would put Omaha at a
, disadvantage to points In South Dakota
j which are now trading with Omaha.
"The Milwaukee's action Is a blow to
I Omaha, for It exaggerates the dlscrlmlna.
: tlon already made against this city in
, favor of Minneapolis and Duluth," said
I t'ommiMlsoner Guild of the Commercial
i club. "The Milwaukee last spring lowered
I the rate on merchandise from Omaha to
Soutli Dakota points, but only to the sum
of the I'K-als to and from Sioux City, and
the northern cities were left with a de
cided advantage, which is Increased by ths
recent action. The situation will be con
sidered by the club as soon as we can get
a copy of the tariffs."
"It will be hard to tell Just how far ths
rate cutting will affect Omaha until ws
secure copies of the tariffs," said C. H.
Pickens, chairman of the transportation
committee of the Commercial club. "If
the newspaper stories are correct, it con
only work damage to this market, and ths
Commercial club wil no doubt take some
action as soon as It gets a thorough under,
standing of (he situation."
While It Is generally understood ths Mil
waukee's action Is ln direct retaliation for
Hill's reduction of rates from the Twin
Cities and their western tributary country
to Duluth, local men do not see Just why
the Milwaukee had to extend its rates
over such a wide territory.

"The Unwritten Law" will be the defense
put up for Gray by his attorneys, Judge
Irving F. Baxter and G. R. C. Read. Ths
defense will srek to establish a common law
marriage between Gray and the woman and
that Williams tried to steal her away from
Gray. They will appeal to the Jury Tor
leniency on the ground Gray was protect
ing his home.
The killing was the result of Jealousy.
Gray, It Is charged, bore a grudge against
Williams because the latter had stolen the
affections of a woman Gray had been living
with. The two met at a house at Thirty
ninth and Q streets and Gray opened fire
on Williams. One bullet took effect and
resulted fatally. Gray escaped, but was
