Thra wara a bunoh of wan IS aavlnaa
bank depoalt book a offrrad aa pHzra for
tha boy or lrl who wouM wrlta tha baat

Many of tha mbryonlc Mlltnna atrualal
bard with rba bl thounhta that turnrd
ta the aoeiia of tha Ualllean manK"r and
tha watchlnff ahephorda who heard the
dlvlna mualr that haa nin throuch tha
world for 1000 years. They tried to put
thnaa bla; thourhta Into beauttftil words,
a ad many of them aucceeded.
Put unfortunately soma of thoaa who
bad tha beat description rrew caralesa In
their ortbosraphy and failed to a-et a prlae
that they had really aarnad, for It wu
a notabla faxt that tha beat compoaltlona,
tha eleareat concaptlona of the Ideal of the
Chriatlan church, had the moat errora In
apelllnx or were moat faulty In pen man -ahlp.
The eaaaya were all numbered and ware
Ju1-ed out of town. The high achool eaaaya
were traded In compoattlon by the Iowa
State unlvaratty, and tha eaaaya submitted
by the puplla from rrade 009 to four were
judged by the State Te&chera' association
at t.'edar Falls, la. After the aradlnx waa
received It waa necessary to Identify the
writer by the number, which waa retained,
by the principal of the achool where the
pupU attended. There waa thua no chanr.a
of a suspicion of favoritism. Prise were
only awarded to the first rank and honor
able mention waa accorded to the second.
The penmanship of the eaaaya waa Judged
by tha Boylea Business college, Omaha.
Because the puplla of the first and sec
ond grades could stand no possible chance
la competition with those In the advanced
trades Miss Officer quickly decided to rive,
a special prise of the same value, and It
was won by Katherlne McMlllen ' of the
second trade. Lanna Robinson won sec
ond place, and would have been entitled
to first place If It had aot been for ortho
traphical errors. The severity of the rules
under which the essays were Judged Is
Indicated by tha fact that snore thaa three
misspelled, words disqualified th writer
for a prise.

are taking money here for Christmas, take
this, please." .
iHe Was hastenmg away-: -with greater
energy when the mayor trle-to stop him
and get hta name that it rahjht appear in
tha list of donors., but the man was fumb
ling at the door lock before' the mayor
could get to his feet. The" only response
to entreaties was the cheery ''Never mind
the name. They call me Billy!" The mayor
found in his hand a crisp IE bill.
It was an exemplification of the Christ
mas spirit that haa made one of the large
rooms on the aecond floor of the city build
ing resemble the receiving platf irm of a
wholesale provision depot. One side Is
piled high with boxes containing all kindi
of canned goods, dried fruits and cereal
foods, tea. coffee and sugar. Other orderly
piles contain flour In small sacks, dried
beans, peas and hominy, smoked meats
and fish, and occupying a space by them
selves fourteen big hams secured by Mayor
Maloney on a personal appeal to the
South Omaha bouses.
The charity wagon waa busy all day
yesterday filling appointments made by the
retail grocers and butchers and gathering
up .their liberal donations, while Maloney
aat In his office making new ones for the
drivers, including a trip to the wholesale
grocery of Groneweg at Schoentgen. In
addition to all the food stuffa freely given
a considerable fund of cash has been col

During the day a number of packages con

generally coming from donors who gave
Mayor Maloney has the key to the Im
provised store room, and It waa nut opened
except for the reception of deposita until
late In the afternoon. Then a deft crowd
of willing workers ware admitted, who be
gan the task of assorting the stuff and
portioning It Into generous-sized bundles,
which will be distributed today through
the city. The distribution is being made
In conjunction with all of the charitable
Institutions and the police department, and
up to noon yesterday tha names and ad
dresses of fifty-six families had been listed
for Christmas gifts.
An earnest effort has been made to
search out deserving needy peisuns and
the belief la that the contributions so gen
erously made In answer to the appeal of
the mayor will be worthily bestowed. It
has Leon ascertained that the families se
lected approximate 300 people, a.l believed
to be worthy and In need of the assistance
to be extended.
"We expect to get hugged in some In
vances." said Mayor Maloney yesterday,
"but what's the difference? We know It
alii not happen If we can prevent It. The
visit of our messenger may arouse in the
breast of the hog a sense of shame that
will bring him nearer the real human
level. The task lias its responsibilities,
worries and work, but we will all be sat
isfied when we know we have discharged
It to the best of our ability."
Among the odd contributions waa the of
fer of Vego Anderson, proprietor of the
Oak restaurant on Bryant street, who
asked the mayor to send six hungry chil
dren to the restaurant on Christmas aud
enjoy a big free Sunday dinner. The Invi
tation waa accepted and turned over to
