acre a minute.
Thla tndlcat-p' the way the KAonO acres
of land opened to ptibllo entry looks to
those persona who know It. They want It,
and are. glad of the chance to he on hand
early to Bet Bomo of l(. Before entering on
It they have to swear that they know
the clin racier of the land and have vlelted
It. There are al a, lot of preliminary for
malities to be innipletrd. In the way of fill
ing out blank forma and the like.
Yet ao anxious were these men to do
thla, and such a bonanza did they consider
the land thus opened up that they had all
these formalities completed, and the affl
avlis made out In proper form, and were
on hand before the land office officials
showed up to open the doors for the day'a
It was probably the bigsest land rush In
the hlBtory of ihe local United States land
office, and it la the largest "designation"
of land ever made In the state by the gov
ernment. The order went Into effect at 9
o'clock and opened to entry over 160.000
acres of land In eight townships between
I.und and Modcna, on the main line of the
Halt Lake route.
The land Included In the designation
covers 2M) square miles, all of which Is de
clared to be suitable for dry farming and
upon which the government gives excep
tionally liberal terma to homeseekera.
Titu Kinds of Entries.
The tract la opened under sections t and
of the enlarged homestead act. Section 1
grants acres of land and requires resi
dence, while section 8 grants the name
amount of ground and does not require res
idence. Under section I there are about
W.Ono acres offered, while the rest of the
tract Is offered under -Section 2, requiring
residence. J , :
In the general rush a number of eon
filets occurred, several people filing on the
same ' tracts. To aettfe the disputes an
auction was held and the homesteads went
to the highest bidders. The losers had the
privilege of filing on other tracts.
ftaryeyers Are Watched.
The first Intimation that the land would
be opened for entry went out when the
overnmcnt surveying party went over the
ground last spring, l'eople began to sus
pect that the land would be opened and
the selection of homesteads was begun aa
goon as the land was Surveyed.
The United Slatea surveyor general then
made plata of the land and filed theae In
the land office month ago.' The law re
quires that the land be open for settlement
under the original homestead laws pro
viding 160 acres to the homatead aa soon
as the platl Were riled, but to get the bene
fit of section 6 of the act It was necessary
to wait until thirty -days from the date of
the filing of the plats.
The filing of the plats was the signal
(or Intending homesteaders to get busy.
The news of the designation seemed to
spread rapidly and by thla morning the
ntryreen were numeroua. There wm aome
pushing and crowding ln'-tfte "Ilrat crowd
at o'olock, but on the whole -the crowd
was orderly. During the morning the entry
men continued to file into the office and
make their entries.

Eva Lang last night thoroughly estab
lished her right to such honors as are Im
plied by the advertisement of "Miss Lang
and company." Little of real marketable
value, perhaps, attaches to stellar honors
suddenly acquired, but she has worked
long and faithfully for the prominence she
now receives, and by Intelligent applica
tion has fairly earned the distinction. She
Is no longer merely the leading woman of
the resident stock organization, but la Its
unqueatloned leader by right of well de
Mlsa Ijmg la playing this week a role
that has enlisted the careful attention of
Borne of the greatest actresses of the stage's
annals. It Is one that appeals to any
woman of ambition, both for Its Intrinsic
and Its extrinsic qualities. To fairly vis
ualize the Egyptian queen whose beauty
has been sung for twenty centuries Is In
Itself enough to warrant an actress laying
some claim to distinction; but when to
those outward and visible attractions la
added the evidence of the Intellectual beau
ties that made her really great, the picture
of the' enchantresa of the Nile le complete.
And Mlse Lang fairly does this, fler phy
alcal beauty Is undeniable; her grasp of
the mental aspects of -the part la compre
hensive, and ahe enacts the part with
spirit and understanding. In each of the
several acta she shows a sympathetic
knowledge or the attributes of the great
queen, but especially in the third act, where
she Is not ao much the queen as the lov
ing woman racked by anxiety for the ab
sence of her lover, does she show her real
strength. While her forte has been and
probably la yet In the direction of lighter
roles. In this instance Miss Lang proves
herself capable for the more serious under
takings of the drama. She fully deserves
the earnest attention that was given her
by an audience that filled the Boyd, and
which warmly applauded her throughout
Mr. Lynch'a Antony Is generally jood.
He Is not ao robustious as some who have
essayed the role, but he presents a figure
that fills the eye, and puts much force and
tenderness Into hla various scenes. The
play is very well cast, and the minor rolea
are given such Intelligent consideration aa
make the whole most enjoyable. Even the
extra people, who are numerous, have been
rehearsed with such care that they seem
natural citizens of Rome and Egypt before
the Christian, era and not folks of today
Jus brougtet sj for.nw Ire Relieve. And Mr.
Woodward haa given the great play a set
ting that' Is surprisingly sumptuous and
complete In every way. Each act calls for
different treatment,, and the craft of the
director Is shown In the cleverness with
which the pictures are presented. It la
worthily done In every way.
"Polly of the Clrcea" at the Braadels.
"Polly of the Clrcua." with Its etory of
the love of a parson for a circus rider, Is
a play that appeals to the heart; so the
audience that filled the Brandels yester
day at both performances found it.
The etory Is simple and romantic. Polly,
who la a bareback rider born and raised in
the sawdust ring, suffers an accident while
doing her act in a little town and is carried
to a nearby parsonage. There she la left,
for in the word of "Big Jim," the boBS
canvasman and Polly's self-appointed
guardian, "the show must go on." In the
care of Mandy Jones, a colored house
keeper, ahe stays at the parsonage for!
several months, and ia thrown Into done
company with the young pastor, Rev. John
Douglas. An attachment grows up between
the untutored girl of the circus and the
man of the cloth. Polly s stay lengthens,
and the congregation, to whose minds a
circus Is the measure of all things sinful,
grows insistent that she go. The paraon la
loath to send her back to the rough life,
and, greater than hla church, makes up his
mind that she shall stay, as hla wife. Polly
discovers the ettltude of the church people
and, pretending that the call of the road
is In her blood, goea back to her circus,
although it almost breaks her heart to leave
the minister. .
In a short time the circus again "makes"
the same little town. The Rev. John Doug
las discovers the real reason for her return
to the clrcua life, and she again remains
behind when the clrcua leaves-this time
in the arms of her lover.
Edith Speare la cast In the title role, and
she portras the metamorphosis that over
takes the care-free girl of the circus
through the strong personality of John
uougiaa in a most winning manner. Hay-i
riona i... Bond, as the parson, enacts the
role with quiet dignity and reserve, and
depicts the minister aa a man far above
the bigotry of his deacons. "Big Jim." big
both In heart and body, who was always
a mother" to Polly, is sympathetically
portrayed by Jules Ferrer. The company
as a whole is strong, and the real circus
that ia staged In the last act is in Itself
worth the price of admission.

DODGE TALKS UPON LINCOLN
Noted Man Payi High Tribute to
SOME PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS
(eneral Whom Conncll Blnffs Lores
to Honor tlvea Interesting; Pip
tare of Kvente of Many
General Grenvllle M. Dodge, bearing the
wisdom and brilliant achievements of
eighty yeara of useful life, stood for more
than an hour before a Council Blurts
audience yesterday afternoon and re
counted personal recollections and detailed
many reminiscences of the life of the
Joe W. Smith presided. After a song.
"The Boys of the Old Brigade." by the
Imperial male quartet. Mr. Smith Intro
duced General Dodge In a few fitting
words, expressing the love of the people
of Council Bluffs for him. The general sat
half concealed behind a nuge bouquet of
American Beauty rosea, and when he arose
to Bpeak the audience obeyed the Impulse
to silently arise, followed by a hearty
General Dodge began by saying that if
there was any person living who had pro
found reasons for love and gratitude for
the great Lincoln It was himself, for it
waa Lincoln who had raised him from the
ranks to a major generalship and who had
prepared the way for the greatest successes
of his life. General Dodge read a brief
biography of Lincoln from a private letter
written by Lincoln while still a young
man, to John W. Bell. In which Lincoln
described himself as being six feet three
Inches tall, lean and weighing alwaya
about 180 pounds, with coarse black hair
and no marks or scars. General Dodge
said he first met Lincoln on August 11,
1ST), when Lincoln came to Council Bluffs
to look after property on which he had
loaned money to H P. Judd and which
waa located in Riddle's addition to Council
Meets Old Friends.
Here Mr. Lincoln met two old friends
whom he knew in Springfield, 111., W. H.
M. Pusey and Thomaa Officer. General
Dodge told of Lincoln's short stay In the
town and of his famous speech in the
town hall, known as Concert hall, on the
Saturday evening of his arrival. He read
the notice of that meeting and the edi
torial comments of the two papers the
next day, one republican and the other
edited by Mr. Babbitt, bitterly democratic.
The comments showed the effect of the
wonderful force of his logic, his power to
lead men Into right thinking although
holding antagonistic views.
While here Lincoln was taken In a car
riage about the city and was driven to
the head of what Is now Oakland avenue
and shown a wonderful panoramic view to
be obtained there, which became such an
Inspiration to Mr. Lincoln that he pro
nounced It one of the moat beautiful pic
tures of peace and nature's bounty to be
found in the world. General Dodge told of
sitting for two hours on the veranda ot
the old Pacific house where Mr. Lincoln
was stopping, after Lincoln had Bent for
him, and being questioned about his sur
veys across the plains-which afterwards
became the line of th 'Union' Paclflo rail
road, e' -
"Mr. Lincoln listened "eHtn the deepest
interest," said General ,Toago, "while I
explained the surveys, and questioned mo
so closely that when the Interview was
ended I realized that he w as irf possession
of all I would ever be able to report to the
men who had employed me to make those
costly surveys. It was as If he had held
a sponge over me and ' soaked up all I
Fight la Convention.
After detailing many personal Incidents
connected with that visit to Council Bluffs
General Dodge told the story from the In
side of the fight in the Chicago convention
of 1860 which resulted In Lincoln's nomina
tion to the presidency aa the first republi
can candidate. Dodge was a delegate to
that convention and cast one of the first
two Iowa votes for Lincoln. He urged Lin
coln's claims so persistently on the floor of
the convention and In the caucus that hla
nomination became possible. General
Dodge, with Senators William B. Allison
and James Harlan, went to Washington to
attend the Inauguration, and told of the
wonderful effect of Lincoln's Inaugural ad
dress. The address ended with the final act of
clemency of Lincoln on the night of his
assassination. A Missouri mother had
gone to him to appeal for the life of her
Bon. a guerrlla, who had been caught red
handed and had been condemned to bo
hung. Lincoln wrote a little card thla lit
tle sentence, "If It is possible, see If you
can do anything for this poor woman who
Is in such deep trouble." At midnight that
night General Dodge was aroused at hla
headquarters In St. Louis by the news of
the murder of the president.

Advertising in South

Fan-American Union Will Discuis
Beit Methods for Firmi of
WASHINGTON. Feb. l;i .-( Special. -It
haa been announced by the Pan-American
union that one of the subjects to be dis
cussed at the Pan-American Commercial
conference, which will be held In Wash
ington, beginning on Monday, will be that
of how to secure the best results In ad
verting American goods in Central and,
From all indications the subject of ad
vertising will be as Interesting to the dele
gates attending the conference as that of
securing Improved transportation facilities
or establishing American banks In Latin
The charge has been made In consular
reports and through other sources that
American manufacturers lose more money
In fruitless advertising In Itln America
than thoBe of any other countries.
Communications received at the Pan
American union Indicate that a large num
ber of representatives of commercial firms
who will attend the conference are anxious
that the subject should be fully investi
gated. It Is believed that the conference will
serve to bring out a number of suggestions
for advertising American goods In Central

doubtless will be made use of by exporting
it has been suggested that the same kind
of advertising which appeals to the Ameri
can public makes but little impresalon upon
the Latin American mind and that as soon
as the American manufacturer haa con
sidered thla difference and catered to It he
will reap a far-reaching commercial benefit.
Acceptances by firms, organisations and
Individuals of the invitation to attend the
conference have reached 811. Included In
the acceptances are 471 firms, twenty-four
boards of trade, thirty chambers of com
merce, thirty-eight trade bodies and ten
commercial clubs. Indications now are that
the total registration will reach 1,000.
