that out of nearly 10,000 essays ohe of
your number had the best," hands oame
together and at a nod from tho teacher
the youngsters gave vent to their feel
Ings. Just tho fact that one of their
number was a winner seemed sufficient
for them. Before they heard the name
they were proud, and not a jealous glance
was noticeable. When the noma was an

she learned enough about Omaha to write

Rose Goes to Europe
Tho' Wedding Bells
Ring fbr His Host
"On again, off again, on again" but
Halleck F. Rose gets his trip to Europe,
Just the tame.
Behind It Is a little story ot the mar
riage of D. IS. Thompson, former am
bassador to Mexico, which took place at
Washington this week. As told by those
who say they know, Mr. Thompson called
not long ago on Mr. Rose, who has been
his attorney and legal adviser In Lincoln
before and since he moved to Omaha, to
draw up an ante-nuptlal cpntract for
his approaching marriage with a view of
safeguarding his large property Inter-
eats. Then tho wedding hung fire. Mr.
Thompson Is In his sixtieth year and a
widower, while the bride Is a miss of 19,
just graduated from a young ladles'
seminary. Intimate friends wero in
formed that the engagement was off.
Rather than take the already planned trip
to Europe alone, Mr. ..Thompson Invited
Mr, Rose to go with him as his guest.
and pressed the Invitation so strongly
that Mr. Rose arranged his law business,
got his impending trial cases all post
poned, and got ready for tho voyage.
Then suddenly came the news that the
engagement had been renewed, and tho
marriage would take place as originally
scheduled, and Mr. and Mrs. Thompson
would sail .from New York next week,
Unless there are new complications,
however, Mr. Rose Is going to Europe,
Just the same. '

their topics and originality also. Were,
much considered In choosing the prise
winners. And neatness was finally considered.
The Judges found it difficult to pick
the winners, as all the contestants had
acquired a great amount of Information
about Omaha and presented it almost up
to the standards ot the various- grades.
There were hundreds that were very good
and probably deserved prizes, but matters
ot spelling and originality made them not
quite as good as the winners. Some had
written their essays from 131J and older
statistics and. while they were unusually
good they could not be ranked with those
who had Used 1913 figures.
