This elderly corn ra'iser lived by herself In
sod house on a newly taken claim and has
cultivated the virgin soil almost unaided,
though neighbors helped with the plowing.
The basket containing the corn was borne
into the entry office of the exposition by
a knotted and gnarled pair of old bands
which trembled somewhat from sge and
somewhat from emotion. The corn la the
first yield from heiclelda and is th.i child
of her old ago. May It take some prize or

The high school girls from the manual
training department will give a demonstra
tion of what can be done in modelling in
butter in a booth arranged Jointly by the
Ia: son-r.aker Ice Machine company and
the David Cole Creamery company. The
exhibit will show a rtf -Iterator and cooling
plant full of stores, the ice machine com
pany furnishing the one, the Colo company
the other, and Mr. Wigman of the high
school the girls who will do the modelling.
The ?braeka Seed company bids fair to

The Postoffice department, anticipating a
big Christmas rush lo register Christmas
packages, will this year try in Omaha the
package numbering system which was
practiced with considerable success In some
of the larger cities of the country lust year.
This numbering of packages system con
sists of a coupon slip divided into three
parts. One of the parts is retained by the
registry clerk, a second identical coupon
which is gummed at the back is attached
to the package and the third part of the
slip goes to the sender. All three parts of
the slip have the same number. This plan
has been adopted to meet the tremendous
rush at the registry windows during the
holiday season. Nearly ten times the num
ber of packages can be handled In a given
time by this numbering proceas than by the
old tediouB process of writing out a receipt
for each package.
The plan is so simple that it la strange
that it has not been thought of before,
'f course, the packages must be properly
Idressed by the senders with the return
ird on the package, as It is only by this
gible address on the package and the re
irn card of the sender, that the package
lay te identified and a proper record of
t kept. It la required that the sender of
he package shall write on the back of the
H'li.lertd slip given him the name and ad
J-esg to whom the package has ben sent.
ine numnerea stirs win not be used at
the substations of the city, as the rush
will not necessarily be so great but that
the clerks at the substations can care fur
the registered packages to be sent away
In the ordinary manner.
i tie teglatry department of the Omaha
IKistofflce calls attention to the practice
of sealing Christmas packages with col
ored stickers of different designs, such as
holly leaves, mistletoe and like small
printed Christmas favors. Where the
package la thus sealed over the flap of the
envelope or other package it subjects the
pacaage to first-class Instead of fourth
c'.asis postage, which is quite an Mem of
expenae to be. considered.
There is no objection to festering these
pretty stk-krrs all over the package, but
they must nut be used to seal or secure the
package if It is expected that the package
is to be mailed at fonrth-class rates.

Dollars Will Be Modern ia
The Omaha Field club will, without
doubt, have one of the finest suDurDan
club homes In the country when it is com
pleted, according to the plans which have
been prepared by Flaher & Lawrie and
which have been approved by the building
committee of the club. The Improvements
will cost about 6.iXO and blda are now
being asked for the changes which will
be made. The report of the oflcers of
the club showed the club cleared up over
16,000 last year and a better year la looked
for next season, especially when the facil
ities are Increased In accordance with the
plans which have been drawn.
The dancing floor will be enlarged 100
per cent when the new building is com
pleted. It is planned tn continue the
present broad south veranda along tne
entire length of the dancing pavilion,
making the floor wider and also raising
the roof. The orchestra In the new scheme
will be located on the n irth side, while
the concourse for lookers-on will be along
the south veranda. Tha west end of the
dancing pavilion, which is now but one
story high, will be raised to the full height
of the main pavilion and this will be
thrown Into the dancing pavilion.
in connection wtih the addition to tha
kitchen and dining room it is planned to
enclose the enst end of the present south
porch about i3 feet, putting In windows
which may be thrown open and building
a wire screen around the whole. This will
give 50 per cent more capacity to the dining
room space and will make acommodations
for 350 people at one time.
The kitchen addition will comprise a
soace JOxTS feet Immediately to the east
of the present south porch, it is designed
lnuch a way that it is practically a con
tinuation of the porch, but there will be
no entrance from the kitchen to the porch.
These additions are expected to relieve
ths congestion at the club on dance nights
and also on ocasions .when a number of
large dinner parties happen to come on
the same night.
