Ir. Omaha during the present cold weather,

If the place be none other than the police

fortune to be out of Jail for a few days,
faced Judge Crawford In police court Fri

which he did not seem gCi care to ascer

a much-needed bath, medical and tonsjrlal

he left the court room feeling happier than
when he entered It.

The Schmoller & Muelwr hall Is a nice
rlnce In wh'eh to hpnr an "Intimate" re
cital nf pianoforte music, or string music,
but tor a song recital It Is a questionable
auditorium, from a purely acoustical point
of view. Tt would be manlcstly Impossible
to do full Justice, therefore, to the voice
and method of, Mr. Carl Sobeskl, who gave
the above program there last nlsrht. Mr.
Sobenkl's voice Is capable of lr.rge and
brilliant effects and it Is to be hoped
thnt when he next doth sing a publlo
recital ho will see tho advisability of se
curing n larsrer hall.
Mr. Sobeskl opened with "Card Mlo Ben,"
the favorite old love song of Glordanl, and
Mr. Sobeskl sang It "con amore"and with
true and faithful regard for the tradl
tlrr al treatment of that most exquisite
of love songs. His mezza voce tones Were
good, well on the pitch, and supported
with a completely adequate breatli control.
The beautiful number which came seconj
on the program was hopelessly marred by
the noisy entrance of a dozen people Into
the reserved section, actually during the
singing of the artist. Of course, after the
UFual manner of Omaha criticism, this
should not be mentioned for "fear It would
hurt somebody's feelings," but nevertheless
attention Is called to It, first, to assure
Mr. Sobeskl that Orr.eha knows better and
I does not always do things that way, and,
seconuiy, ii proven ma Immediate re
curience of the affair.
The other numbers of the group showed
t'.at Mr. Sobeskl had made a very careful
clHe of real gems to present to lira first
public audience In Omaha, and ho dis
played them with the personality and earn
estness of one who really loved them.
In the French numbers by Wekerlln the
singer showed that he was completely at
home in the difficult art of surrounding
these exquisite "Bergerettes" with real "at
mosphere:" His French was above suspic
ion and the daintiness and delicacy of bis
voice was well brought out. In the arioso
from the "King of Lahore," by Massenet.
Mr. Sobeskl was full of dramatic flro and
The favorite song, "Ich Llebe Dlch," of
Orleg, appeared In new form under the title
"Jeg Klsker Dig," and was well sung.
Among the "hits" were Mrs. Beach's
"Shena Van," Mrs. Salter's "Come Into the
Garden," which was re-demanded, and
"Ixickruff.' by Ruchauf.
Mr. Soheskl's tone production Is very In
teresting and sometimes very puzzling. His
method of beginning a tone Is frequently
accompanied by an undesirable "rising"
from a lower pitch, and he has a tendency
to throw his tones so far back In the mouth
that they become dangerously near being
"throaty." This is doubtless tho thing that
accounts for his peculiar pronunciation of
tho German words In the Schumann songs.
Mr. Sobeskl has repose and ease of man.
ner which appeal very strongly to an audi
ence; .o has temperament beyond question,
and he sings with a style and finish which
come not to the singer except by very seri
ous work. With more distinctive vowel
coloring his work would ne still more In
teresting than it Is, and that Is saying a
good deal. His phrasing and his breath
control are examples of good work which
ull students would do well to emulate.

much promise, played her piano forte num

Madame Borglum played the accompani

1. 1'lalntlff sold to defendant forty acres
of standing hay at the agreed price of
Jt.O per ton, the hay to be weighed and
paid for before taken from tlie fitrin. The
defendant took possession, cut and stacked
the hay and baled and hauled away six
loads thereof. Held, that title to the entire
crop passed to the defendant,
2. When the sixth load was be-In g weighed
the defendant questioned the correctness
of the Bcales, which It was agreed should
be used, and refused to take away or pay
for the hay remaining In tho field, claiming
that tho plaintiff refused to allow the liny
to be weighed elsewhere. Held, that the
evidence sufficiently supported the plain
tiff's contention that she offered to accept
railroad weights or to have the scabs of
which defendant complained inspected and
corrected if out of order, by a party named
by the defendant.
3. if it be conceded that because of the
Hen reserved on the hay for the purchase
price thereof, a duty rested on the plain
tiff to sell such part of the hay as the
defendant refused to take and pay for, and
apply the proceeds' In 'reduction of her
damages, still she was .relieved of any sup
posed duty in that respect by the defend
ant's refusal to allow her to make such
4. ' There Is evidence that-the hay would
average two or three tons per acre. Only
$f0 of the purchase price has been paid.
Held, that a verdict for $351 in favor of
the plaintiff is not excessive.

granted a divorce and awarded the tempor

who becomes a resident of this state and

that the court rendering such divorce re

of mental capacity on the part of the

mental capacity must be established by
clear and satisfactory evidence. The fact
that the mother at the time of executing
said deed was over 80 years of age. aud
the further fact that during tho later years
of her life she manifested some hallucina

warrant the setting aside of such convey

Whllo In the postofflce Friday morning
Captain Levey, noticing the Grand Army

3 Tuned Bells and a Turbine,
while above all shines the Star of Bethlehem.
Our "Christmas-Chimes" are 10 inches high
and made of fine nickel-plated metal and are so con

BAD FIRE FOR LACK OF WATER
Blnce Does Merlons llsniase Ileninse
There Are No Hydrants
IN ear n-.
Lnok of fire hydrants In tho vicinity of
Thirty-ninth and Wright streets, resulted
in the total loss of tho home and personal
property of Clint Hi ycr by fire Thursday
night between 10 and 11 o'clock. The lious
Is at 2712 South Thirty-ninth street, and
the nearest fire hydrant is about eight
blocks away. The direction In which tho
wind was blowing and the. efforts of the
firemen were all that prevented a number
of other homes from suffering; a like fate.
A dog belonging to the Hoyer family
and kept In tho house during the night is
supposed to have unset a burning lamff--after
tho members of the family retired.
The barking of the dog aroused; the oc
cupants after the flames had gained
headway, but their efforts to extinguish''',,
the fire proved fruitless, and the two cam- '.
panics of the fire department which Sn-
swered the alarm confined their efnwi.s
to suvlng adjacent buildings, as It whs .
seen that a bucket brigade, the only pos
sible method of getting water on to tho
Beyer house, could not combat the fire.
The houso and contents, valued at tl.S'-C
and J700, respectively, were a total loss.
The home was insured for 11.000 and the
personal property for ItiOO.
"How will you have your eggs?" asked,
the girl behind the lunch counter.
"With as brief an Interval of time," an
swered tho absent-minded professor, "as

of the oval spheroid in the nidificated re
ceptacle by the female representative of
the common or barnyard variety of do
mestic fowl and the subsequent appearance
of the same In the marts of commerce

"All right," Interrupted the girl. "I think
I understand. Scramble three !"- Chicago
