noon at the School for the Ieaf. The new

While three hymns were belrg sung by
a duo of women's voices, they were most
tastefully and Impressively Interpreted by
five young; women connected with the
school, lhose who have not witnessed

hands, eyes, features and body, oil were
the very acme of grace and gave to the
hymns a meaning that could not be lost.
The hymns rendered wore "Lead, Kindly

"Aelep In Jesus."
Trlhate front Teachers.
A tribute from the teachers was In-teipi-etrd
by Prof. 3. V. Sowell. from
th pupils of the sciioot by Emll Hladlk
nd a Bible reading by air. Hldrldge.
Superintendent Booth read the written
tributes and the Interpreters stood by his

In a way, these funeral exercises were
impressive to a degree, and carried to
a!! hearts-a very solemn sense of the
dignity of death.

teachers and pupils and tho large audi

pupils and friends of the Institution being

Messrs. Booth. Rothert. Long, Gillespie,
Utewart and Culbertson. The active pall

Price of Crackers :
Why are prices of crackers advanced to

over the Ur.lted States by all the cracker
This Is a question mystifying Omaha
grocers. A few years ago young biscuit
companies all over the country were cry

crackers In bulk have been advancod j

"All the ' factories make this price at
the same time," said a big Omaha re
tailer. "They dldrTt wait for the Na
tional to name the price and then grace
fully follow after a few days. Things
have come to such a pass that there Is
fcbsolutely no difference In price betvemi
the various companies, cither on plain
or fancy goods. When you get a new
price t'rom one company you will know
at once that all the other concerns put

CITY HALL IS STIRRED
OYER COMMISSION LAW
Legal circles of the-clty are In a tur
moil of disagreement over an interpreta
tion of a part of the commission plan
law. Proper provision is .made In the
law In a lucid manner for the choosing
i of commissioners at the general or
regular election, but there is a clash of
: legal learning over the question of the
' number of men an elector may cast his
vote for at the primary nominations.
The law provide, that the fourteen
men receiving the highest vote at the
primary shall have their names placed on
the Official ballot and for seven of
these each voter shall cast a ballot.
3 low ever, they pay there Is no clause In
the law which determines whether a
voter shall cast his vote for seven or
fourteen men ut the primary.
Heveral lawyers are Investigating the
statutes in an effort to determine if
they can whether the ballot at the prl
Jiiary shall have "vote for seven" or.
"vote for fourteen" Inscribed on it.
Other lawyers who have already Inves
tigated declare that the voters can cust
their vote for seven men only and yet
dlhers who have alto investigated assert
that each voter has the right to assist
lu electing, each of the fourteen nom!-uses.

Some Men Are Too
Lazy for Hard Work
"We need jobs for reveval men," iid
Miss Ma V. Jonts of the Associated
charities, "and it the people cf the city
have any work they want done at rea
sonable wages we will be glad It they
will let us know."
Miss Jonts ssld the chavilles were
making an efort to furnish work for
the most deserving, but that It Is some
times difficult, to find out who wants to
be helped In that way.
Ono family has been helped for several
weeks. The wife has been receiving
much assistance, and herself Is a hard
working weaher woman. Miss Jonts pre
vailed upon her to bring her husband lit
and the three of them woiiid flan how
to support the family.
The hurband came. He was a bit;,
healthy and indolent fellow and .Miss
Jonts at once gave him work. He worked
two hours and resigned, saving his wife

fore he didn't have to work.

Youthful Charm ,
To Aged complexions
"Prematurely or middle-aged com
plexions can be made soft and velvety
and given a pink and white tint ot
youth." says Mrs. Mae Martyn, In the
Now York Express. "But first of till,
powder and rouge must be discarded
because of their ruinous effect on the
skin. . In its place should bo used a
plain spurmux lotion, made by dissolv
ing 4 ounces spurmax in Vi pint hot
water and ad ling 2 teaspoonf uls glycer
ine. Using witch-hazel Instead of water
makes it dry quicker in cold weather.
"This lotion should bo applied to face,
neck and arms, then gently managed
in, and when It dries the skin takes on
a soft, satiny finish. Continued using
will remove pimples, blackheads,
wrinkled ami skin-roughness. It Is
especially fine for oily or 'muddy' com
plexions, and unlike powder, Is Invisible
when on." A-Jv.
