"THE PLOW-WOMAN," STORY OF PRAIRIES
IppitMh . of Longfellow Centennial
' BrlBft-lnar Oat Much Which Be
Imtca to tho Great Aeaer
The approach of the centenary of the
birth of Henry W. Long-fellow has evoked
'many tributes to tha memory of the New
England poet, among others, the leading
feature In the February Imuo of Donahoe's
Magailne.. Nearly thirty pages are de
voted to a review of Longfellow's life and
the narration of Incidents connected with
the writing of his moat popular poems. The
article Is handsomely illustrated, and a
portrait of the poet forms the center of
tha cover, design.
"The Plow-Woman," by Eleanor dates.
Is a romance of the prairies. The heroine Is
a southern girl, and the first scenes of the
story are laid In western Texas.. Later the
scene shifts to the Dakotas. Miss Gates,
who Is used to handling characters close to
the ground, has given a study of a splendid
girl who rises above tho shiftless condi
tions that result from a crossgTalned father
and an accident, and who proves her right
to her lover's designation, "the Roos of
the South." Though It may be said that
In this working- girl, 'one finds rather the
hardy fresh wild rose of the fields than
the hothouse variety. The family live In a
one-room log-and-mud shack, but the tale
Is by no means a sordid one. It breathes
hope, self-reliance and cheer, and In the
exciting turns of the plot holds the reader's
Interest to a happy end. This book has been
endorsed as an "historical novel," though
it Is history of only thirty years ago. Mc
Clure, Phillips Co., are the publishers.
"The Slave of Silence," by Fred M.
White, author of "The Crimson Blind."
"The Weight of the Crown." etc, Is another
story of mystery and thrills. The mysteri
ous events which took place at the Royal
Palace hotel, London, and at the strange
house In Audley Place, are unfolded In
this remarkable and absorbing story. The
sign of the bulletshaped piece of salt, the
strange disappearance of the body of Sir
Charles Darryll, the electric mysteries of
the house at Audley Place and many other
surprising things puszte the reader beyond
description and arouse the keenest Inter
est from the first to the last pag-e. Pub
lished by Little, Brown & Co.
"A Hunt on Snowshoes," the second vol
ume of the "Up and Doing erles" for
boys by Edward S. Ellis, Is packed full of
halr-ralalng episodes, and Is the story of
the adventures of two boys, Clarence and
Sidney Langdon. during their holidays.
How they win out In a race with a howling
pack of wolves, elude a gigantic bear, a
moose hunt that ends In a; chase by the
moose, how they are captured by a crasy
hian, how Sidney falls down the ravine
with a panther, how Clarence finds the den
of a gang of desperadoes under a water
fall and what comes of It, are all ad
ventures which no boy should miss. Pub

"Mars and Its Mystery." by Edward 8.
Morse, author of "Glimpses of China and
Chinese Homes," "Japanese Homes and
Their Surroundings," etc., Is a study of the
planet Mars for the general reader by a
naturalist of International reputation.
Prof. Morse, who Is a member of the Na
tional Acsdemy of Science and many other
sctentlflo societies, spent thirty-four con
secutive nights at the famous Lowell ob
servatory at Flagstaff, Arls., 7,000 feet
above sea level, observing the markings
or the canals on Mars. The Interpretation
of these lines by one who Is so familiar
with the surface features of our own planet
Is of great value and Prof. Morse has pre
sented the result of his observations In
concise, popular form. His comment on the
attitude of astronomers towards the canals
on Mars is of unusual Interest. Published

'Through the Gates of the Netherlands,
by Mary B. Waller, author of "The Wood

"Every Man a King-," by Orison Swett
Marden, author of "Pushing to the Front,"
perhaps explained beet by its sub-title,
"Might in Mind Mastery." It la a powerful
plea for the mastery of self and the train
ing of latent forces to the highest ends.
Some suggestive chapter headings . are:
"How Mind Rules the Body," "Thought
Causes Health and Disease," "Mastering
Our Moods," "The Power of Cheerful
Thinking" and "Building Character." The
work of Dr. Marden hardly needs special
mention nowadays. His practical books on
success in life have received the endorse

and have been translated as far even as
Japan, while as editor of Success he Is

While the fact has been kept pretty well

Captain and Mrs. Broatch gave up the
house In which they had been living on
Harney street last spring, when Mr.
Broatch left to spend the summer and au
tumn with her daughter in Virginia, It
was Just about this time that Broatch sold
out his wholesale Iron Interests and tne
rumors were rife that he was about to re
move to Virginia as a sequel to his failure
to make himself mayor. While his wife
was away he occupied a room In the home
of William Wallace, who Is related to Cap
tain Broatch's first wife. It happened that
when Mrs. Broatch returned to Omaha
about the end of December, the wife of
Walter Molse was preparing to go to Cali
fornia to spend the winter, leaving the
Molse home on Park avenue only partially
Terms Quickly Made.
Satisfactory terms for its occupancy by
Broatch seemto have been quickly ar
rived at. Police Commissioner and Mrs.
Broatch . moved Into the Molse house and
have taken possession of the household,
while Brewer Moise remains as a star
boarder and retains his own room.
Captain Broatch asked a friend to call
not long ago and said:
"Telephone me any evening and come
"What's the telephone numberT" was the
"It is Harney 674," said the police com
"Well, If I don't remember it I'll look It
up In the book," replied his friend.
"Oh! no," interjected Broatch, "you won't
find It In the book in my name. You will
have to look under the name Molse."
The Intimacy of the alliance between
Molse and Broatch was illustrated not long
ago by another Incident. Broatch applied
at one of the theaters for free ticket to
the show that was playing there on the
strength of the fact that he was police
commissioner. The pass and seat coupons
were given him without question, and that
evening the police commissioner appeared
at-the door with Molse as his guest.
Mr. Broatch claims that he is a regular
tenant of the Molse house and that he
pays Molse $45 a month rent for it fur
nlshed, excluding the room retained by
the landlord, and presumably he has re
celpta for the rent money where he can
show them If necessary.
Broatch's Inaratltnde to Spratlen.
"That beats everything," said a well
known man about town, "holding up the
account in The Bee of Police Commls
sloner Broatch's avowed purpose to put all
the blame for police commissioner troubles
on to Lee Spratlen." I am a friend of
Spratlen's and 1 know that Broatch would
never have been police commissioner and
certainly never have been reappointed ex
cept for Bpratlen. Spratlen got him his
Job first and forced Governor Mickey to re
appoint him, but ' I am not surprised that
Broatch is willing to ditch Spratlen now to
save himself If he can. He is pretending
now that he was always In favor of the
strict enforcement of the Slocumb law
when It Is not three weeks ago that he
attended the 'meeting of the Retail Liquor
Dealers' association and talked to them
for an hour, assuring them that he was
with them for Sunday selling and ready
to help them to open up. It was on the
strength of bis harangue that the saloon
men called on Mayor Dahlman and pro
cured from him the now famous lld-llftlng-order.
Then, when the Civic' Federation
preferred charges against the chief of po
lice for carrying out the mayor's order
Broatch veered around and wanted to fire
the chief on the 'theory that that would
; save him his job. As I said, I know
I Spratlen, and no matter what else Is said
about him, he stands hitched and stays
with his friends, whether It Is to go down
or go up together. But what else could
any one expect of Broatch after his va
rloua somersaulting performances?"

you will forgive this long delay In writing, you dear, good girl.
At last we have "moved" Into our dear little home, and I must tell
you of our first experience. One of the things of which we are
.' both so proud la our gas grate. John says it makes it so much
more cheerful If one can "see the fire," and we hare been plan-
nlng how Jolly It will be to sit before the grate on cold winter
evenings, with our beautiful gas lamp turned down low and Just
give ourselves up to dreams.
Would you believe it, the horrid man neglected to turn on the
water the day we were to take possession, and John said we must
not build a fire In the furnace until the water was turned on, so
you see, dearie, we had to depend entirely upon our gas grate
- for heat. It was delightful, though, to sit before the fire and dls-
( cues just how we would arrange everything. And I am going to
g do my own housework. The servant problem Is such a bore, and,
besides, we have such a cozy little place I am sure I shall hum nn
trouble. John, like the dear man he is. borrowed water from one w
5 of the neighbors, and I only wish you could have seen us prepar- J
ing our first breakfast, for John insisted on our taking dinner at t)
2 ' restaurant. X
6 My gas range Is Just lovely, and we found by turning on the S
gaa in the oven part and leaving the oven door open we could heat
the kitchen perfectly. I really don't know what we would have $
' done without our gas grate and range. It was great Now, don't ' S
laugh, for I really didn't intend to make a pun. I have acres of v

Present Indications point toward a happy
consummation of the plan to erect a bronse
statue of Abraham Lincoln In a triangle
formed by the three walks at the south
east corner of the high school. The little
friction between the school pupils and the
Woman's club was but a tempest In
teapot, as has been shown by a disposition
on the part of the women, to co-operate
with and help the pupils in their enter
prise and the desire of Principal Water
house to act merely In an advisory ca
pacity, allowing the pupils to carry out
the Ipian along lines now being" formulated.
The junior and senior pupils have agreed
with much unanimity to take hold of the
project and the belief Is the other classes
will do likewise.
"Members of the Omaha Woman's club
have shown no spirit to interfere with the
plans of the pupils, but are enthuslastlo
in their willingness to help them. It was
at first thought the raising of money suf
ficient to buy such a statue as was pro
posed would be too much of a task for
any one class. It has been arranged that
an executive committee, one from each
class of the school, take hold of the work,'
Principal Waterhouse. said:
The statue, which has practically been
agreed on,, will cost nearly 11.800, and the
pedestal about $400. The statue In question
Is the one Harry P. Whlttnore arranged
for while in Europe last year, when he
called on Frans Zelesny of Vienna, Aus
tria. The Zelesny statue, a bronse, will bo
similar to the St. Gauden's statue Lincoln
standing in repose. Figure end pedestal
will be fifteen feet high. The plan Is to
have the statue unveiled at . tho close of
the school year.
The statue will have a significant relation
to the valuable collection of art which has
been placed Inside the high school by th
rlous classes. Woman's club and others.
