The newly appointed civics committee
made its first report at Monday afternoon's
meeting of the Woman's club. For the
present It deems best to wo:k for the en
forcement of the present ordinance regard
ing billboards. Compliance with this at
least relieves the billboards of danger to
passersby. and Mayor Dahlman has been
requested by the committee to see that the
ordinance is enforced. One member of the
committee Is In favor of club women re
fusing to patronize merchants and others
who advertise on" billboards, deeming this
the moat effectual means of making the
system unpopular. The committee further
announced that It la not through with Its
Investigation into the street car service
problem and it requested all women en
countering discourtesy or Inconvenience
frorn conductors to report the same to, the
committee that these things may be brought
formally to the attention of the proper
Announcement of Governor Shallenberg

of the Mllford and Geneva schools for girls

governor's promise of his careful considera
tion of their request regarding the reap
pointment of Superintendent White of the
Nebraska School for the Deaf.
Upon recommendation of the membership
committee, new members coming Into the
club at this time will be admitted for next

this year for 15, while former members will
be reinstated for the same period for S4.
The Carnegie pension for retired univer

lative committee of the General Federation

ture department. Miss Kate McHugh of the

program proved altogether delightful. Two
organ solos were given by Miss Mamie
Austin. Mrs. F. H. Cole presided in the
absence of Mrs. Millard Iangfeld, leader
of the department.
Mlsa Ora Johnson for V. W", C. A.
Miss Ora Johnson has been added to
the secretarial staff of the Toung Women's
Christian association and will resume her
duties at once. Miss Johnson will become
office .secretary succeeding Miss Sabra
Wilson, who will give her entire time to
the employment bureau and boarding home
work. Under Miss Wilson's direction this
department of the association work has
assumed sjeh proportions that It will re
quire the entire time of one secretary.
This department corresponds to the
dormitory work In many cities that it did
not seem practicable to Incorporate Into
the local plan. Miss Wilson will givs her
attention to young women who are
strangers In the city and others who need
assistance or friends helping them to find
work and to find a home among desirable
surroundings. Another office secretary will
probably be added to the staff when the
association gets Into its new building,
where the demands will be heavier and the
work greater In proportion.

Aaaoaneementa of the Theaters.
Mr. Sothern will present at the Boyd
theater this evening his own production of
"Richelieu." This great drama, aside from
tta poetry and Its great interest from a
dramatic point of of view, admits of the
richest treatment in point of scenery and
accessories, and these Mr. 8othern has
amply provided. The play Is one of the
most important In his repertory and de
serves the liberal patronage it seems cer
tain to have.
On Sunday and Monday, next, "A
Knight fora.. Day" is coming to the Boyd
for a return 'engagement. When thte com
pany was here eariier in the season it
made a great hit In the piece. The chorus
Is the one great beauty aggregation that
has been seen In Omaha this season, while
Eugene Moylan and Elsie Herbert are still
scoring heavily at each performance.

The March Century Is notable for the
number of its articles on public men and
public interests. .The new president is
given a prominent place In lis pages, with
a study, published anonymously, of his
Interesting personality; a picture, sketched
by James A. I; Roy, of his character and
methods as revealed by his work In the
Philippines; and a first publication of two
letters of Mr. Taft, one declining to be
considered for the presidency of Yale, the
other accepting his appointment on the
Philippines commission. In addition the
reminiscences of " Rutherford B. Hayes
in the White House" and the story of "Our
Presidents Out of Doors," make the Issue
decidedly a "White House Number," as It is
called. The articles on topics of general
public Interest cover a wldo range.
George F. Tarker. In his second paper on
Cleveland, in the March McClure's. gives
the first authentic story of the remarkable
campaign which elected him to the presi
dency a second time. A. J. Conant, the
artist, tells of his experiences In painting
a portrait of Uncoln; T. R. MacMechen
describes the country where Roosevelt will
bunt In South Africa, and James U Ford
contVibutes a paper on "Our National

Vengeance," by Charles R. Barnes; "The
Fountain Light." by Fielding Ball; "The
Vacant Road." by George Kibble Turner;
"The Strength of the Jaw," by F. J.
IiOiiiiet, and "The Reckoning," by Robert
The Strand Magazine for March Is a
capital number and the "Curiosities" alone
are sufficient to render it unusually at
tractive Including, as they do, some of the
queerest and most out-of-the-way subjects
In the world. Hall Caine reaches a vital
point of interest In his "White Christ,
while other excellent stories are supplied
by Max Pcmberton, H. Nesbit, Sidney Low
and Dorothea Deakln. The articles Include
such widely different subjects as are In
dicated by the titles: "Crime and the
Crystal," "Favorite Portraits of Grand
Opera Artibttcs," "Sir W. S. Gilbert aa an
Artist." "Stage Prizes" and "Beautiful
Homes and aGrdens." Harry Lauder con
tinues his "Reminiscences.'
The March Smith's opens with a complete
novel by Martha McCulloch-Wllllams, "The
Choice of Honor." The short stories In the
March number of the magazine are all
worthy of note. 2 Holman F. Day's "Min
strelsy of Meetin' House Mobbs" is delight
ful In Its humor, and Annie Hamilton Dan
nell's tale, "The Right House." Is equally
attractive In Its pathos. The fourth of Mrs.
John Van Vorst's tales of "An American
Girl Abroad" gives some Interesting side
lights on London society and a good story
as well. "In Answer to Wire," by Edna
Jessica Ferber, Is an account of a railway
Journey with a love story in it. "The Smug
glers" Is a strong tale of French rural life
by F. Berkeley Smith, and "A Victim of
St. Valentine." by Alice Louise Lee, is a
good love story. H. Addington Bruce has
an article describing the work of women in
making American history during the first
period Immediately before the revolution.
This article Is the second In a series which
promises to be of unusual Interest. Anne
O'Hagan has contributed to the number o
good paper on "Our Servant Girls," and
iMward Lucas White Is represented by a
rather unusual poem, "The Elorment."
The People's Magazine ha three new de
partures In the March number. One Is the
first Instalment of a long novel by Calvin
Johnston, entitled "The Marlowes." "The
Marlowes," filled with Its gentle humor,
will make home reading aloud. "The World
and His Wife" Is a complete story adapted
from the well known play by the same
name, and Is the first of a series of ro
mances of the theater. The third new fea
ture Is a brief outline of each current play,
which taken In conjunction with the the
atrical pictures found In the art portfolio,
offers a dramatic guide to the theatergoer.
The Popular for March contains a num
ber of unusual short stories. Among these
are: "Peter Burnham'a Grudge," by Ralph
D. Paine, a story of athletics at Yale;
"Colonel by Brevet." by W. B. M. Ferbu
son, humorously descriptive of the manner
In which some southern cash made Its ap
pearance on Broadway; "Before Strange
Gods," a story of the "boot-legging"" traffic
In the northwest, by Bertrand W. Sinclair;
and "McTavlsh's Guests," by A. M. Chis
holm. which tells of the various attitudes
adopted by several interesting characters
toward the heathen In his darkness.
"The Case of Good Old Bertie," by Van
derheyden Fyles, In the March Smart Set,
Is a story as told at the club, of the con
tinual and finally hopeless mishaps of a
good hearted old chap who was born a
blunderer. "Chance." by Charles Somer
vllle. Is erallsm to the final degree; a
grim, gruesome tale that fascinates by Its
terrible power. "Mam'selle Vlolette," by E.
Crayton McCants; "The Daughter of a
Pasha." by Mary Hastings; "The Pre
valler," by F. K. Trask; "Tha Trespasser,"
by W. H. G. Wyndham Marytn, and "An
Impractical Joke," by Grace Tabor, are
stories of exceptional merit and interest.
Rachel Crothers contributes a one-act play,
"Mrs. Molly." There Is verse by Helen
Dudley. Aldls DVTTbar, Edna S. Valentine
and Alois Kiman,
In short stories the March St. Nicholas
has two that ought to captivate young
glfla. The opening story of the number Is
by Mariam Warner Wildman. "The Sled
That Ran Away." Of course It didn't really
run away, for a sled couldn't do that, but
"Margie" hitched behind, tied her sled at
that, and couldn't untie it. "The Coral
Necklace," by Grace E. Craig, Is of a
young girl who goes to Venice and almost
buys a coral necklace. She did get one,
but how It was obtained is too well told
In the story to hint at here. Ralph Henry
Berbour's serial, "Captain Club," continues
and draws three college boys as they exist
In actual fact. "The Isss of the Silver
Sword," Mary Constance Dubois con
tinued story of a group of school girls,
presents a delightful view of an Adiron
dack girl's camp, while Itradley Gilman's
Egyptian adventure story, "A Son of the
Desert," presents In this Installment some
stirring scenes of camp of Egyptian ban
dits who hold "Ted," the hero, in captivity.

Prof. Frederick Starr of the University of
Chicago on "Woman's Morality Savage
and Civilized." Another feature Is an arti
cle by Edwin Markham, the famous author
of "The Man With the Hoe," on "Women
Who Worry." One wishes that Mr. Mark
ham's essay might be placed in the hands
of every such woman. Pletorially th
March magaaine is especially beautiful.
Among the writers represented In the num
ber by short stories of decided originality
and strength are, Michael Williams. Owen
Oliver, Porter Emerson Browne, Fremont
Rider, Bugene Manldve Rhodes, Duffleld
Osborne and W. H. G. Wyndham-Martin.
The March Woman's Home Companion
carries out the publisher's promise of a
bigger and better magazine In 1909. A dis
cussion of "What the Emmanuel Move
ment Really Is" begins In this Issue. The
Importance of the subject and the standing
of the writers make this article one of
particular interest. Alexander Dana Noyes,
financial editor of tho New York Evening
Post, has something very Important to say
about women's investments. The March
issue is a special spring fashion Issue an
nouncing the advanced spring styles. The
stories are many and good, Irving Bachel
ler, Grace 8. Richmond, Ada T. Drake,
Mary Heaton Vorse, Florence Morse Kings
