STENOS HAYJATCH COLD
County's Girl Employes Suffering in
Unheated Old Court House.
MAY JOIN MISS ANNABEL LEE
Poor Girl Who Lies la Tomb by the
Sounding Sea May Have Con
pany Valess 4 Protection
from Cold Comes.
Bveryone who is familiar with the
writings of Edgar Allan Poe remembers
the sad fate of "the beautiful Annabel
Lee." - Omaha people will regret to learn
that the girl stenographers and clerks
In the old Douglas county court house are
In dire danger of coming to a similar sad
end. It was "darn chilly" In the build
ing today, as one of the stenolsts re
marked. The old heating plant has been
removed, it having been thought that
the county would be housed in the new
county building before more cold weather
Annabel is Beautiful.
"As the poem narrates, Annabel Lee
was beautiful. She was a perfectly de
lightful girl and quite accomplished;
played the piano, sang a little, and could
take a hand at bridge. She was quite a
little embroiderer, too. Lot me pour you
some more tea; that's all cold. Well, as
I was saying, you wouldn't want to meet
a nicer girl than Miss Lee. Her health
nas never the best.' As a Uttle girl she
never was strong. .The pome says she
and Poe, or whoever it was loved with
a love that was stronger than that of
many far older and wiser than they were.
Miss Lee's lack of wisdom was her un
doing. It seems that she went out one
night without a wrap or with too light a
wrap or thin-soled shoes and it was quite
windy. She got in the chill wind and
caught her death of cold and the next
thing she knew she wets down with pneu
monia. - Swoop Down on Her.
According to the; porno a flock ot
"wlng-ed" . seraphs swooped down from
heaven and bore her away. The fact Is,
though, she died. Poor Miss Lee. It was
a shame that she had to die. Now "the
moon never beams without bring
ing" him . "dreams of . the beauti
ful Annabel Lee;'.' but,- while a
dream is nice enough in its way, hang
it all, it won't get up-in the morning,
start the fires and fix the eggs and
toast. "Truth all the night tide," he
states, he lies down by the side of Miss
Lee "in her tomb by the sounding sea."
This is not the writer's notion of any
good place to lie down, as the sounding
sea might keep a person awake all night
and he wouldn't be fit for work the next
day; but it was Poe'a idea ot paradise
just then and as long as he was satisfied
who else has any right to kick. . He made
his tomb and he was willing to sleep in it
Annabel Lee's Tomb.
Well, if they don't get into the new
building pretty soon, or a temporary beat
ing plant Isn't put in the old or the
weather doesn't moderate all the dolls In
the county's employe will be crowding
Into the Annabel Lee tomb until no one
can lie there and the s. r. o. sign will
have to be hung out.
The county Remington brigade shivered
around all morning and even after they
donned their coats they were chilly.
