Busy Bees -:-
WALTER AVERILL, KING.
MILDRED WHITE, QUEEN.
HIS ia the result of the election for king and queen of the
Busy Bees. Walter Averill, your ijew king, will lead the ac
tivities of the Red side. Mildred White, your new queen, will
lead the Blue Bide. Mildred has been on the Red side, but,
having been chosen queen, she will now lead the Blue side,
which is the queen's side.
The retiring king and queen are Claris Shaw of Ogden,
Utah, and Hester Mallory of Kearney, Neb. both living away from Omaha.
The new rulers live in Omaha. They will head the Red and Blues sides
until the first of next year.
In counting the number of prize-winners on the two sides we find that
the Red side is just one ahead of the Blue side. The Reds have won sixteen
and the Blues fifteen. There were three prize-winners who did not join
either side and so were not counted. The Reds and Blues are now even.
The Reds won in the last contest, but the Blues won twice before that.
The Blues must now put forth all their energies toward winning first

join. They are Gertrude Altman and Ethel Brinkman of Omaha. There
are two new members for the Blue side Marie Koelber of Hillroee, Colo.,

Frontier Celebration at Cheyenne.
By Earle A. Stirling:, Aged 14 Tears.
4056 Grand Avenue.
Boys and girls, If you still want to seo
some of the real wild west you should
see the frontier celebration at Cheyenne.
They have the street sports of feather
ticklers, talcum powder, etc., same as
we have at Ak-Sar-Ben times; but con
fetti is not allowed. But real, down
right sport as you read of It In the novels
end see It In pictures is to -see those
cowboys trying to ride the wild bronchos
and go skyward off their becks; or
see pony and cowboy (who is sticking
like a leech), go humping, dancing and
tumbling about Just like mad. It sure
makes your hair stand on end.
The next most interesting thing to
me was the Indians surrounding and mas
sacring the Immigrants. Three Indian
scouts sneaked up through the grass and
peeked, then crawled still closer and
peeked again. Then they motioned and
signalled to the Indians behind, then they
came whooping and galloping in circles
around the immigrant wagon and there
was a regular battle. The Immigrants
fought hard and killed lots of Indians,
but the Indians were too many and
killed all the immigrants and burned
their wagon. Just them a band of cow
boys came In sight and there was an
awful mix-up, but the cowboys soon had
the Indians tearing off like mad, leaving
a lot them dying on the ground.
There were lot of other real attrac
tionsthe wild steer' riding, roping and
bulldogglng; then the Indians In full
dress and war paints, racing and yelping
about, and a lot of soldiers and fancy
riding and shooting. But everything
was tame to me when I thought of those
wild bronchos mixing up the way they
I hope, when they come to Omaha, that
wt will again see the real thing.
Our Fishing Trip.
By Mollie Corenman, 86 South Seventh
Street, Omaha. Red Side.
Dear Busy Bees:
I am going to tell you about our fish
ing trip last Sunday. We went down
to the Missouri river and each of us
took a lunch. We sat down under a nice
tree and took out our lines and began
By and by I pulled up a fish, but
when I saw it struggle so to get loose, I
took it off of the hook and put It back
I In the water. Then I told the girls that
I wasn't going to fish any more, be
cause I felt sorry for the poor things.

Our Scout master and the Stag, Wolf
and Eagle patrols of the Boy Scouts took
the car at Twenty-fourth and N for Clark
lake, near Fort Crook, Saturday after
noon, each taking one share of provisions
We arrived there about 5 o'clock. First
we had supper, which consisted of bread
and butter sandwiches, cocoa, meat and
We played games awhile, then arranged
our blankets for sleep, which was often
Interrupted by the guards that were sup
posed to keep the four large camp fires
going and otherwise watch our peaceful
slumber. Every two hours they were re
lieved by two fresh guards, who put 'n
their time largely by pulling us out of
bed and running into us in other very
In the morning we had breakfast of
baked potatoes, boiled eggs, bread and
butter and coffee and oatmeal. Our
leader constructed a tireless cooker by
making a deep hole filled with hot coals,
sinking in it a can containing our oat
meal, which was already boiling hot, and
covering the cooker with dirt. In the
morning it was ready for breakfast.
We then had Sunday school; then went
swimming, after which we returned for
Our return trip from camp to the car
was a long one It seemed to me. My pack
was heavy and I was dragging along In
the rear when a good-hearted lad offered
to swap packs, which I gladly did, his
being very light. From that time on I
kept boldly to the front, keeping a good
distance between my hew-found friend
and his heavy pack.
A Suburban Car Eide.

On returning home from Sunday school
i was Pleased to hear that wa imkIiI
take a trip to Papilllon, Neb., on an in-
terurban car. We took the car at Six
teenth and Farnam streets, 2 p. m.
The ride was pleasant through South
Omaha, oyer the 2d street viaduct,
past the packing houses, cemeteries and
cornfields. We soon reached Ralston, a
place I went to a long time ago. I got.
a glimpse of Seymour lake and a few
people scattered here and there fishing.
A little farther on we saw a party of
young folks gathering walnuts in a
grove. The car made a stop here and
saw they had several market baskets
We rode along over hills and valleys
out into the real country. The air seemed
so fresh and one could smell the wild
clover and see oceans of sunflowers. I
wish all the Busy Bees could take this
tide. It took just one hour and the fare
Is only a quarter for adults and fifteen
cents for children.
We found our friends looking for us
and, I must say, we spent a very pleas
ant afternoon with them; and then had
the same enjoyable ride back In the
moonlight. Could not see much, but the
breeze was so refreshing! The corn
fields and sunflowers seemed to be
nodding and bowing, saying "good night"
as we passed.

Last summer while we were camping
in Colorado papa called me and said,
"Come and see the kittens.' So I ran
to see them. There was one black and
one gray and white.
Soon we left them and went In the
house. The next morning when I got up
I saw the gray and white one in the
house and got some milk for him and
he drank It heartily.
Finally he went away. But every day j
he came to tee me.
One morning we decided to let him In.
He looked around and climbed up on a
bed. I forgot to tell you his name was

him one and gave It to him. He came
every morning to get cakes and milk.

not get down. 8o papa took a box and
held It up for him. And Dickens Jumped

One day last week, myself and seven
other girls gave a party. As we all be
long to a club we gave it as a club
party and had a fine time.
At about half past seven the guests,
which were sixteen In number, arrived.
When they were all there we started
The first one we played was "drop
fhe handkerchief" which was more In
teresting than usual because the grata
was so slippery that we fell down every
time we tried to run. We played It for
a long time and then started playing
Jacob and Ruth which la even more fun.
I wonder If any of the Busy Bees have
ever played it.
A boy is chosen to be Jacob. He Is
blinded and stands In the center of the
ring while the others run around him.
When he says "stop" he points and then
the girl he points to must go Inside the
ring. When she is caught he guesses
who it is and If he is right she has to
take his place.
After lunch we played Oood Morning
and the Journey to Jerusalem. By that
time we were tired so we went home
snd all who were Invited agreed that
they had a fine time.

Nebraska Boy in New York Graft Fight
Emery R. Buckner, the young attorney
of New Tork City who has been retained
by the New Tork Board of Alermen to
Investigate the charges of wholesale cor
ruptlon In the Gotham police force, is
a product of Nebraska and Is a hard
fighter for right. He is a graduate of
the University of Nebraska with the A.
B. degree. He also is a Harvard uni
versity law graduate. His home Is in
David City, Neb., a small, prosperous
town in the Platte valley, where young
Buckner grew to manhood, pushing his
way up through the grade schools and
on through the high school at the head
of bis class.
All during is course at the University
of Nebraska Emery Buckner was known
as one of the leading men of the Corn-
husk er institution. He was a force in
all activities of the big school. Huge of
frame, firm and round of face, Buckner
was a commanding force. He pushed
along the campus walks at a brisk gait,
and strangers had him pointed out to
them as the successful manager of the
Cornhusker foot ball team.
Under the management of Buckner, the
Cornhusker eleven played the best teams
in this section of the country and licked
them, for at that time "Bummy" Booth,
graduate of Princeton, and the man who
placed Nebraska on the foot ball map,
was tutor of the Nebraska players. Be
cause Buckner knew how to do things
the Cornhusker eleven had a successful
foot ball season, . financially. In those
days It took a shrewd and energetic man
to make football pay at the Cornhusker
institution. The manager had to work
many hours after the other students
were asleep or at social doings; it took
plans and execution to get foot ball in
the way of success, and Buckner was
the man who did these things. He
worked all the time. Not only did Buck
ner work at foot ball, but he also la
bored at his studies, and that is the
reason he was graduated with Phi Beta
Kappa honors, the scholastic prize of the
To realise how this young man had to
work. It must be told that he supported
a wife during his college course. He
brought her with him when he came to
the big school. During his Nebraska
course a child was born Into the family.
Emery Buckner was working his way

through the university; he had to make
money to support his wife and child, and
he labored with the foot ball finances,
and did much other work about the uni
versity and about the city. He made
things pay, too, so that when he was
graduated with leading honort from the
Cornhusker institution, he had enough
money to make him think of going to
Harvard. The next year he entered the
Harvard law school. With him went his
wife and baby.
Soon after he landed at Cambridge,
Buckner made known that he would
have to earn money in order to get
through school. He became secretary to
President Eliot, and he made a splendid
seoretary, too, as the famous Harvard
president will tell any one who asks him.
But while he labored for the Harvard
president and earned money to support
his family, the Nebraska product also
worked hard at his law studies. When
the three years of law work were up,
Emery Buckner left the Harvard law
school as a leader of his class. His
capacity for work enabled him to do
wonders. He went through seven years
of college life with a wife and baby en
his hands, earned enough money to tup
port his family, took highest honors at
two of the big schools of the counir
shared the Interest in athletics with the
most enthusiastic of students, managed
a big foot ball team, won 'the respect of
the most aristocratic of Harvard s itlld
Coast-that is om work for a young
college man and a man who always had
lhed in a town of lest than 3,000 inhab
itants until he went to the University of
Buckner's achievements at the Harvard
Law school-hls taking the hlnh.-i
honors in his class opened the way for
him to enter a large New Tork firm.
Soon the young man proved his worth
there, was appointed assistant district
attorney by Jerome, and was retained by
Whtn the New Tork board of alder
men wanted a man to carry on ths
probe Into the New York police methods,
only one man waa contldered. "Take
Emery Buckner," was the word that was
passed to the aldermanlc committee. He
can do the Job. He never has failed at
anything since he has been In New York.
So Emery Buckner, a young man, who
only a few years ago was playing baeklot
base ball In David City, Neb., Is now
leading one of the greatest reform fight
in ths history of the country.
Hera in Nebraska Buckner Is known as
a fearless fellow. When he was at the
head of teveral student activities, he
fought for what he believed was right.
It It related that he ones told the entire
board of athletic authoritlet that they
did not know enough about running col
age sport to be given ths Otis of
"athletic board members." He said they
were absolutely wrong In one matter.
They said they were absolutely right.
Buckner proved them wrong.
Every few years Emery Buckner comes
back to Nebraska, He stops at Lincoln
and wanders around to the Alpha Theta
Chi fraternity house, where he spent con
siderable time during bit college career.
The young frat fellows gather around the
former Cornhusker and listen to h!a
stories. He liket to be back with the
boys, and he Is at much at home there as
the active young fellows. He says it does
him good to get back.
that there Is a living creature who de
pends upon you to give 'him his food
and to look out for his wants. But what

to develop In a way that Isn't always
provided for. We mean that It Isn't
often that a little fellow gets a chance
to learn how to control others To win
your dog't respect you must know how
to make him obey you, and you must be
able to do that without unnecessary
"bossing" and without being brutal. That

The Musenm of Public Safety has
started out to do Its best to lresen the
number of accidents that occur to chil
dren on the street. Boys snd girls at
tending the vacation schools of the city
are being taken to the home of the
musum tn Manhattan and there lectured
upon precautions, which, If followed,
would save the lives of many children
each year. There are model trolley cars
there, miniature In size, and th whole
thing la worked out, using dolls for live
boys and girls. This will show the chil
dren Just how people happen to get In
the way of trolley cars.
Besides this, the museum Is giving to
each child a list of thirteen "don'ts,"
which It hopes that the children will fol
