will direct a week's activity in the
rounding up of subscriptions: the mem
bership has already been at work and
has accomplished a great deal.
Orchestra Well Kuom,
The Theodore Thomas Orchestra of Chi
cago needs no special recommendation to
the people of Omaha: this body of artist
under the conducturvhlp of Mr. Frederick
Stock lias been most sorlounly recemd
and heartily endorsed by the public and
the press of Cincinnati, Toronto, Pitts
burgh. Philadelphia, New YorU, and Bos
ton already this season, and Mr. stock
who. In assuming' some years ago the
baton laid down by the laie Theodore
Thomas stepped Into one of the most
difficult positions the, musical world has
ever had to offer-has been" looked upon
with the utmost favor.
i Tho Mendelssohn Choir should not need
much exploitation this season after f.ie
IX and can be had now from any mem
ber of the Mendelssohn Choir
The Mendelssohn Choir will sing on
both evening programs, and there will be
enough complete change from the pro
grams of last year to interest all. and

FORGED CHECKS NET BIG SUM
Estimate of iUr ear's Hainea of
Clever I'rimra the Country
Albert H. thfttorn, author of "Questioned
Documents." and an authority on the
subject. declares that the forgery loss
in this country for the year 1W11 Is fully
II&.Qiv.OMl Clever penmen are leaving a
trail of had checks reaching from Port
land, Maine, to Portland, Ore. Hanks
and hotels are naturally the slilning
marks of the forger; but nearly, if not
quite, as much money is paid out on
forgeries by individuals, small storekeep
ers, and business houses as by all the
banks and hod Is combined. A large
proportion, especially of the unreported
forgeries, is in amounts uf less than
SIOO. If the former of a small check
has vanished, and only n doubtless clue
remains, the natural Impute is not to
"send good money after had." In most
cases, nothing Is done, and the criminal
goes on his way unhampered and un
afraid. Banks naturally do not care to
have It known that they pay out cus
tomers' money on forged paper, and if
the forger is gone they are not inclined
to take much trouble to find him."

(Occasional placea where one la conscious
of his true gift. Often and often one
.gets hnatches of Rutterfly, but for the

bizarre, and inharmonious.
The first act. opening with the various
cowboys tinging and talking and the
homesick Jim in the foreground, and
jXIck circulating round with drinks, is
effective as, a sttage picture. Puccini
lhas evidently heard of our beloved Ste

d'Angelo didn't make very much of a
really fair opportunity. After this the

after many shrieks for her. Johnaun

Inquires who wants to eurl his hair

The best things In the fir?v are

Mr. Thomas Chalmers sang in a true
resonant baritone. All through the opera
'Mr. Chalmers was Interesting. The part

PONY DOWNED THE COCKTAIL

The Shetland pony owned by Ford
Cordial. 4 years old. son of I'M ward i
Cordial, councilman, of Kandolph street.
New Rochelle, X. Y., after drinking a
cocktail, saved the boy's life.
The pony had acquired the habit of
running away from home and visiting the
Democratic club, which Is a mile away
on I-Awton street- It has become a
favorite and had developed a tatt for
cocktails, and every time it enters the
club it goes to the little room under the
stairs where they are dispensed. As soon
aa It gets Its cocktail it trots home.
For three days the pony had not been
feeling well, and, th-mg:. it visited the
club, it had refused the cocktails offered
It. After It had refused one. John Hadert,
vice president of the club, proposed that
the ony be dropped from the roll be
ca'ise it had turned prohibitionist.
Apparently the pony understood the
proposition, for It brushed open the door
t.f the little r-Hm tiith H tise and
wUiUaisid for a cocktail. It drank toe
