President Roosevelt and the officials of the

benefit of the students who will apply for

Ipplne government and declares the latest

SCORE OF CHRISTMAS BRIDES
That Many and One More Given
License in Dona-la County
Monday. "This Is certainly fierce," said Marriage
Llcease Clerk Harry Morrill yesterday
afternoon at 5 o'clock, as he sat at his
desk In the court house and wiped per
spiration from his brow.
In reply to a natural Inquiry he pointed
to the marriage license record.
"Twenty-one Christmas brides, all to
day," he said weakly. "It's the worst
I ever law."
The Christmas bride Is trying to crowd
the June bride and the Ak-Sar-Een biirio
from the fore, and from the record made
yesterday she deserves the palm. All day
happy couples thronged the county Judge's
office and other business was practleully
suspended A number of them had the
ceremony performed Immediately by the
judge and the others went away rejoicing
tn the possession of the precious docu
ment. The brides were of all ages and condi
tions and from all parts of the country.
The oldest was Mrs. Louisa Wolf of South
Omaha, who confessed to the age of 47.
Miss Sibyl Baker of Omaha and Miss Ava
Patterson of South Omaha will have to
divide honors as the youngest, each being
18 years old. Among the states, Iowa,
Colorado, South Dakota and Missouri are
represented. It was one of the largest
day's business ever transacted by the
license clerk In Douglas county.
SPORTS OF A DAY.

get an early start on skating this winter,
and to that end has arranged for a skating
carnival at the lake surrounding the club
house for Friday night. The club house

Charles Comiskey, Herman Schaefer of
the Detroit Tigers and Joe Cantlllon, man
ager of the Washington Americans, who
recently returned from a trip down the
Mississippi on the good ship White Sox,
are entertaining their Chicago friends with
stories of some pf their experiences while
on the trip. It "seems that Joe is an ex
cellent cook. His friends say, none better.
One day, while watching "Doug," the
colored cook of the houseboat, preparing
dinner Joe suddenly said: "Guess I'll
nviko a couple of pies."
This was meat and drink for "Doug,"
who laughed in a happy way and said:
"Go light ahead. Here are plenty of ap
ples, and there's the rest of the stuff,"
pointing at the place where the Hour, etc..
was kept. So Joe, rolling up his sleeves,
sailed in. His preliminary work was so
good that "Doug" opened his eyes and
started to get Jealous. This Increased, and
so did his wrath when the pies were placed
upon the stove and came along nicely.
Ills eyes blazed, but be said nothing.
The worst was yet to come, it was
enough for "Doug" to find that there was
another cook on me xoat wno Knew the
ropes, but when Comiskey said, "Hurry
up, Joe, I want to make a sponge cake,
the real cook's dander rose sky-high. He
began to, fear for hls joh. To think that
"Csminy" was also a cook In disguise was
too much for him. The climax came,
however, when Comiskey ordered "Doug"
to put on his coat and go up to the
grocery store for some goods. The boat at
that time was lied at the wharf at Helena,
Ark. "What do you want me to get. Mr.
Comiskey?" said the dlegusted cook.
"t ommy ' laughed as no wtnKea at Joe.
and then remarked in a careless way: "A

Burgeon Archer of the government vet
erinary service was an Omaha visitor Mon
day from Salt "Lake City. The Idea oc
curred to him to make some boy happy,
so he made an Inquiry at the Child Saving

Detention home a possibly the place for
finding the boy he desired. He went there
and 8-year-old Ouy 81111k was pointed out
to him as a good subject. Dr. Archer took
the boy up town and dressed him com

At the annual meeting of the directors
of the Omaha Country club for the election
of officers, held Saturday noon, J. C. Brady
was re-elected president, Z. T. Lindsay
was elected vice president, E. M. Faliiield
treasurer and Sam Burns secretary. Z. T.
Lindsay wa elected chairman of the golf
greens committee. The positions' of chair
man of the house committee and of the
golf tcurnament committee were not filled,
action being postponed until the next meet
ing. Riders who have been faithful to the
wheel for the last ten years or so are
having much amusement as well as satis
faction In welcoming back their former
comrades who are taking up the sport
again. Thai the ranks are filling up rap
lily and the coming season will see more
riders than have been witnessed in any
year since 1897 cannot be doubted. One Indi
cation of the renewed Interest in the wheel
Is to be found In the large number of bicy
cling clubs that have taken on new leases
of life and the formation of new clubs In
every part of the country- The club or
ganisations, in many cases, have been
continued, because the organizations were
easily adapted to winter treasures, es
pecially where club houses and room were
retained that possessed dancing floors. Hut
careful readers of ihe dally press must be
struck with the number of new clubs that
are being organises in inum ui
cities, according to the notices which are ,
appearing on the various sporting pages.
