COUNCIL BLUFFS, la., Dec. . To the
Editor of The Bee: Every day I am con
fronted by the spectacle of some one look
ing down upon and belittling the waitress,
who, through no fault of her own, must
wait upon any one who happens to patron
ise a public dining room. There is no ap
parent reason for this, for In this age the
world should admire the worker and no one
in a legitimate line of existence should be
subjected to sarcasm r ridicule.
Waiting on table Is one of the few line
of work in which women may Te Independ
ent ,for the average wage of t8 a week and
board, and the tips received, enable them
to live a they should. So why should
they be sneered at? Adventure and excite
ment are lacking In the life of the wait
ress and she often has to work In a much
less pretentious building, but the fact are
that she Is paid better than the shop girl.
My advice Is to admire all who work.
We are all servant of one another, so one
"has no advantage over another. It la only
false custom that has led to the Idea that
the shop girl I above the waitress.

V Names en Street.
' OMAHA, Dec. 4. To the Editor of The
Bee: , How I pity tttnee visitors that will
come to Omaha to the corn show If they
want to find location In Omaha. So few
names of streets up, especially In the busi
ness sections. So few, comparatively, num
bers up. One want to find what . block
he Is on. and In some, business blocks one
has to look a good deal to find a number
up ' that will Inform' him. Business men
are very partloular to have number and
street on their tatlonery Cards, letter
leads, billheads, etc. but very frequently
neglect to have that number over their
door so one can locate .them readily, and
then ' one frequently wants to Jot down
the location of a certain store. They will
find the name up perhaps a long. Jaw
breaking one which Indicates nothing as
to location, and of which he cares noth
ing. But the number, which if up he could
Jot down quickly, he looks In vain for.
Then perhaps of a Sunday he will want
totigp .to church and will look In the city
directory to find the location of the church
and 4 will find, for Instance: "Christian
church, 26th st a w cor Howard; First
Methodist, n w cor 22d & Dodge." Than
he wonders where under the heavens How
ard and Dodge, streets . are. . After here
twenty-four hours he gets on to the num
bered streets. He thinks; "Well, perhaps
this directory will tell me somewhere be
tween It covers where these street are."
But, why I why I could they not Just as
well give the number of Twenty-sixth
street the Christian church Is on, and the
number the First Methodist Is on Twenty
second street T Then he could know how
far north or south, how many blocks from
the center of Dodge treet they' are. The
numbered streets Indicate location, but
Howard, Davenport, indicate no location
to a stranger. If the directory maker
would always give the number of the num
bered street, and then put In "Corner
Howard," or whatever street corner It 1,
they .would make a great Improvement In
their, directory. It would then be a direc
tory that " would direct without circumlo
cution. In fact, would save the work and
space of putting on the street corner, as
the ' number would Indicate the corner.

THEORY FITCFTWAS KILLED
Relative of Council Sinn's Man Fear
He Met Foal Play In
Relatives of E. P. Fitch, the Council
Bluffs man who disappeared In England a
few. weeks ago, have had no word of htra
and not the least sort of new clue has been
forthcoming. The search of London ho
pltals .has been totally fruitless and the
terrible conviction Is forcing Itself on rela
tlves and friends that he met With foul
play. Th last Item of Information about
him was that the letter he gave to some
pne to mall while on the train between
Dover and London was not mailed until
two days after he gave it. This letter gave
the'news that he intended to go to a hos
pital at once for an operation for append!
eitls. The delay in mailing the letter may
signify- nothing more than carelessness on
the part of the unknown man who mailed It.
Relatives and friends In Council Bluffs
have appealed to Governor Garst to aid In
the search for him. In compliance with
the request Governor Garst ha net In mo
tion the Btate machinery to aid In the at
tempt to locate the missing man. Through
the state authorities the Btate department
at Washington will be appealed to and
the English government will be ' petitioned
to make, an extra effort to discover the
Mr. Fitch, who resides at 113) Fourth
avenue. Council Bluffa, with hla sisters,
Miss Julia Fitch and Miss Anna Fitch, was
laat heard from October 20. He wrote his
alsters then that he had been taken sick
While enroute from France to . London
England. Since then all efforts on the part
of the family to obtain any trace of him
have met with no result.

everyone having rooms to rent during the Corn Show to list
them with us, free of cost, (hat we may fill the rooms as we.
have applicants for same. In order to-take care of the
crowds, which will bo in Omaha during the National Corn
Exposition, it is absolutely necessary for Omaha people, who.
have rooms, to offer them and take care of our visitors. By
getting your rooms in early it will be much easier to handle
them for the Corn Show opens December 9th and we want
all thie rooms in by that time. For further particulars call

One of the serious problems with which
the Board of Education will grapple at
the regular meeting Monday evening will
be the finances. The latest report of the
city treasurer shows' that there Is little
more than I1.E0O In the treasury for school
purposes. To this will be added about
$6,000 from the state apportionment This
addition will make It possible to pay most
of the school warrant for the month of
December. Thl 1 a short month and will
not be a heavy drain. The warrant will
probably have to be registered after the
first of the year until April.' The corpora
tlons seldom pay their oounty tax until
about that time, so little money will be
coming In before that, daje. Most of the
money already expended has been derived
from liquor licenses. This fund has usually
carried the expenses over Into the month
of February or about that time, o that
there ha been little registering for a
number of years. At the beginning of the
school year of UKX-, however, a number
of extra expenditures for Improvement
and new buildings, as well the addition
of some new teacher and the purchase of
several series of new text books, have
drained the treasury rapidly. It 1 believed
that the board -will come out at the end
of the school year about as well a usual.
The rapid development cf the city and
the Increase of population ha required the
erection of school buildings about as fast
as the funds would permit. It 1 likely that
new building will be required -by the
close of the present year.
The past week - has been an Important
one to numerous fraternal societies of the
city. The annual election of offlcera ha

It still enjoys an immense sale, while most of the preparations that came into prominence in

There must be some reason for this long-time popularity and that is to be found in its superior
merits. When once given a iair tnai ror weaic stomacn, or ior uver and Diood affections, its ,
