The F.aglcs' lodge of Florence has taken
a leading part . In the civil affairs of that
lty nnd making It a pretty suburb of
Omaha. Definite action was taken Wednes
day evening when at a meeting of Fonta
nels acrle, with more than li0 members,
a resolution Was unanimously adopted re
questing tho mayor and marshal to co
operate with the owners of all saloona and
billiard and' pool halls, In order that these
places may be closi-d on Sunday and that
the blinds may be removed from the saloon
windows on Sun tin
Florence Is awakening to a keener sense
of Its importance and of Ita fine situation
as a desirable residence suburb of Omaha.
It haa "gone Omaha one better" In the mat
ter of sending dolegatea to the navigation
congress in Bloux City, for, a cltlxen points
out, Florence sent a delegate for every 600
of Ita population while larger cities sent
only one for every 1,000 population. Flor

which other cities did not do.

It waa only In this way that Mr. Whits
ever knew that dyspepsia was on of Mr.

Mr. Dyspepsia Black ordered crackers and
a glaaa of milk- "I had auch a big break
fast this morning," he said "that I'll Just
tnke a bite to keep. you company." But
Mr. Yiite eould not be deceived; "I am
afraid you can't stand the gleam, Mr,
Black. Why don't you aay you have dys
pepsia and ,e done with It? You'll always
have that hungry look anyhow aa long as
you have dyspepsia. Now listen. My

i Without any great blaring of trumpets,
without much literature In regard to Itself,
a very strong and worthy aggregation of
singers and players announcing aimply
grand opera In Italian, or Italian grand
opera, venture) Its way yesterday Into
Omaha and stole mt a quietly as It came,
but It left an Impression. Seldom, if ever,
ha ao little noise been made beforehand
about a visiting operatic company, and
seldom ha there been such unanimous
opinion to Its excellence after It was
Mr. Ivan Abramson, tho man behind this
Interesting organisation, says that he has
been watching the operatic situation for
some years, and that while other managers
have presented grand opera in English,
English grand opera, and mixed repertoire,
ha Is the first to organize a strong company
of people to present In the most attractive,
way, and With fullest attention to detail.
the standard Italian operas at prices which
are certainly within reach of all. Grand
opera as It Is conducted in this country
is certainly for the rich, or at least the
very well-to-do, for the engnglng of the
biggest stsrs costs a large amount, and the
prices must be high In order to give the
manager an opportunity to come out even.
Here Is a company which presents no
ultra-brllllunt s. filar Attraction, but prA
sents a balanced cast and that Is what
true opera production means. The cos
tumes were In good condition and effective,
the kcenery was quite adequa)e and at
tractive, the grouping and detail of the
stage effects were most commendable, the
admission fee was most reasonable.
The chorus was not heavy here nnd lig'.it
there, but pronouncedly solid, and sincere
and earnost In all Its work, which was of
a high character. The orchestra was not
large, but every man counted: the playing
and support did not Invite criticism. These
two potential arms of the operatic body
were In control of Slgnors Merola and
Fornarl; and word about Slgnor Merola;
when this company cornea again (ns it
probably wfll very soon. In response to
various requests and Inquiries at the box
office) ll will be well to go and watch this
energetic, wonderful worker. The people
on tho stage received many complimentary
rounds of applause and acknowledged them;
but down in front, with a magical baton
ln his hand, and music In his soul, and
temperament from his Innermost fibres
to his finger tips, sat a man with a work
to do, and he did it. Such clear, vitalising,
enthuslafctie and sincere conducting is
sure to get results, and much of the verve
and dash and finish and confidence of the
toot ensemble was to be laid with a bou
quet at the feet of Maestro Merola.
Mme. Norrelll ln the part cf Leonora
showed some beautiful top tone and gave
to the part a very faithful portrayal,. Her
voice la one of beauty, as is evident from
the work at the beginning of the opera In
the afternoon, but through cold or hoarse
ness or lack of "timbre." as the French
call It, In th lower and middle parts the
voice became veiled later. Mme. Norrelll
was so interesting that her return wtll be
eagerly looked forward to. ' As Asucena,
Mile. Strauss displayed a voice of decided
natural beauty, and, like Mme. Norrelll,
she show that she has had good school
ing. But even the best-known teachers,
alaa! have not yet recognised that darken
ing the lower tones of the voice does not
matte them carry. Mile. Strauss, when
she opens up the lower tones of her voice
and sings as brightly there as she does
higher up, will add greatly to her value as
a singer. Her acting was never overdone.
Manrlco, In the hands of M. Louis Samol
lov, was well taken care of. His singing
of this popular part was gratifying and at
times positively astonishing; sure of his
ground, confident ln his tone delivery, earn
est and artistic ln his entire picturing of
the Troubadour and his love. He waa in
stanlly In favor. M. 8amol)ov will yet be
heard from. He has much to commend
him, but not the Icaat is the fact that hla
voice was more brilliant and resonant and
beautiful at the close than It waa even at
the beginning. Signora Oterl and Peszettl
In lesser parta gave good account of them
selves at both performances.
Slgnor Alessandroni as Count pi Luna In
the afternoon waa received with great
pleasure by the audience and he Is

gives one a feeling of satisfaction. Hi

while he seemed somewhat heavy In the

The part of Henry was taken at nialit bv

full and satisfying and especially In the

"I believe the Omaha corn show will do
a grest service for the farmers of Ne
braska and western Iowa, and that In es
tablishing the big exhibition and short
term course of Instruction, which It Is pro
posed to have tn connection with the dis
play, that Omaha will be doing a greut
thing for the farmers," said C. C. Bcldcn
of Thompson & Belden, speaking of the
corn show, plans for which are now being
It has seemed to me from the first that
tne. educational value of the show Is upper
most. Of course we must have something
else to attract city people to the show, but
the farmers will come, anyway, for the
things they will learn about corn and grain.
"It Is already apparent that the Intelli
gent handling of the corn will result In
increased production. We don't . need to
say scientific, simply the right way to han
dle ttie seed and the tight kind of seed.
"If by having the corn show here, with
tho Instructors from our agricultural col
leges, we can give the farmers new Ideas
which will result In Thcreascd production,
I do not kryw of a greater service Omahu
business men could do the state.
"But I do not underrate the value of the
corn show as an attraction. Aa I under
stand It, the show will not be a quiet or
silent affair. I think the proposition to
have a good band at the show would be a
good thing. 'Make the display decorative,
something on the order of the corn palaces,
and while city people will come for the
music, the novel decorations and the prom
enade, the out-of-town people will get the
benefit of the' educational part of the
!UsirB 'Prrsiaaest.
to financing the " show, Mr.
said: ''
"We must count on making the show a
permanent corn exposition. Those Inter
ested in corn growing who have discussed
the subject seem to want a permanent
show at Omaha. I do not believe In hav
ing: to secure large contributions each year,
but ln creating a fund from our earnings,
It any, which will either promote the next
year'a show or furnish a nest egg for the
necessary fund.
"For this reason I favor the largest pos
sible number of contributions. AVhile large
contributions will be necessary. I think the
small ones do the-most good, Interest the
most people and result ln leaving the pro
portionate earnings of each in a fund,
where the earnings on large contributions
would probably be withdrawn."
December Beat for Hotels,
Ralph Kitchen, proprietor of th Paxton
hotel, aaid:
"I am In favor of the corn show and
favor holding it in December. From a
hotel standpoint the December weeks will
be better than most. any other time. This
year the traveling men were not at the
hotel much during . the holidays or the
weeks Just preceding. This Is likely to bs
the condition the coming year, ss It is al
most every year.
"With the Increased hotel capacity which
Omaha will 'have this year the large
crowds can be nicely cared for. I believe
the corn show will bring people to Omaha
from outside, and the Auditorium will
cme nearer fulfilling the purpose for
which It was erected..
"A an educational proposition I don't
know of anything whloh would do more
for the people of the surrounding agricul
tural territory than a great corn exposi
tion, and when a farmer once attends and
secures ldeaa which Increaso his crops he
will want the ahow permanent and bring
a number with him next yar. It should
offer advantages which are not offered at
farmere' Institutes and from the traveling
schools from th agricultural college,"

On an Informal canvass tor mem
ber over fifty were found willing to enter
such an organisation. When this was

of a constitution and by-laws. The consti

means to promote the randldkry of good

oversee tho work of the candidates after
they have been elected. When It came to
the eligibility of members, and the clause

precipitated both for and against the rule.

very objects ofhe club. On the other
hand It waa argued aa a dampener on any
candidate to be required to resign from the
club when entering the race. The feeling
prevailed very strongly that this clause
should be kept In tho constitution.
The club went on record as a body of men
who expect to work In both parties and to
further the efforts of good, capable men
to secure control of the city government.
The club expects to get Into the present
municipal campaign as strongly as It can.
The members are to pay II as an Initiation
fee. -
After the adoption of the constitution the
officers were elected as follows: John
Fits Roberts, president; R. L. Wheeler,
first vice president; H. It. Fisher, second
vice president; George Itahn, third vice
president; John Klewltt, secretary; J. G.
Kclley. treasurer.

candidate or officeholder bo a member of
the club had the 'Immedlateseffcct of taking

Captain Troutan and Captain Nels Turn
qulst each caught a man last night with a
coat which did not belong to him. The
first was A. N. Green, who went Into Va
cek's store on Twenty-fourth and N streets.
While pretending to look st some undor
clothing he slipped the coat under his large
overcoat, but not so carefully as to escape
detection. He attempted to leave the store,
but the woman in charge stopped him and
demanded the road. He gave It hack and
ran away. A boy ran for an officer and
Captain Troutan arrived In time to make
the arrest. Green was found to be Intoxi
cated when he arrived at tho station. He
sald.v "I'm an honest man, a plumber and
a good lodge member." These protestations
availed him nothing and he wept Into the
i cell.
The other case was that of Lewis Zabawa,
newly arrived in the city from Poland. He
went into a barber shop to be shaved, and
while in the chair another customer as ho
left the shop donned the first man's over
coat and wore it away. Nels Turnqulst
waa called, and he discovered the coat,
which was a valuable one, ln the possession
of a man named Whitelow, boarder at the
Iowa house. WUitelow said the barber had
given It to him' and he had worn It away,
thinking It his own. When he returned to
the shop the barber also remembered help
ing him with the coat. No arrests were
made in the case.
Taxpayers who are Interested ln the
movement to Investigate the deals by which
the fixtures and furniture for the city hall
were ordered, say they propose to push tho
matter to the end
One of them said yes-
I understand that overtures have
been made to the city officers to the end
that they accept the fixtures and furniture
for the city hall, and the partiea proposing
to Install will take the chance of collecting
the bill. If any such move Is made, tho
bondsmen of the officers will be held for
any liability the city may Incur in the car
rying out of the deals before they have
been passed upon by the courts."

Railroad men do not take kindly to tho
proposal of the coal and lumber men of
of the state represented tn the Nebraska
Lumber Dealers' convention to have a law
nacted requiring railroads to double tho
mine price for all coal the roads confiscate
for their own use while In transit. .
'A railroad company only confiscates
coal when It becomes an absolute necessity
for the good of the greatest number," said
one railroad official. "There comes a time
when a road must take a car of coal, but
when it doea so It la generally the case th
coal must be had to move a train which
might have several car of coal. Theso
the road could not move without coal."
It I claimed the Union Pacific has not
confiscated a car of coal for three years,
for during the summer months that road
laid In a supply of about 30. 000 tons. Rail
road men aay they don't see why they
should be penalised by paying double, for
It la understood by all interests that they
only resort to such expedients In actual
"Elven though the enforcement of the
law which prohibits railroad companies
from owning sn Interest In coal mines
might be delayed for some time through
the courts, the railroads of the west are
doing all possible to relieve the situation
when the law I enforced," said the official.
"The Union Pacific la assisting In every
possible way any who might open up new
mines in Wyoming and Colorado. Consid

Plowing in January

D-HT : 4
The farmer in the Southwest is plowing in January and Febru-
ary. He lives an out-door life the entire year, and it never
shut in bf blizzards and the like. Snow is almost unknown
and it is seldom cold enough to freeze. He has none of the
hardships of winter td bear. He does not have to build expensive
barns for his stock, nor does he have to feed and s)elter them all
winter. Neither does he have to remain idle half the year.
The Southwestern farmer has all the best of you. Besides
avoiding all the discomforts and expenses of winter he has bought
his land for a small part of what yours cost, and he can often raise
two and three good crops on it.
Why don't you leave the cold winters and become a South
western farmer yourself? You can get a big farm in the Southwest
for what a small farm costs in your state. In a few short years this
cheap Southwestern farm will become a high-priced farm in a highly
prosperous, closely settled community.
Now is the very best time for you to move to the Southwest.
Two or three years hence you will have to pay more for your
