Card Club Meets.

Frank O. Brown Tuesday afternoon.
Three tables were placed for the game,
and prises were awarded to Mrs. P
Mahrena and Mrs. F. O. Brown, The
Persistent Advertising la the Road to
nown hnd extended to Omaha nnd when
tho committee In charge of the Michigan
alumni annual tianiiuct, which was held
at the University club Tuesday night,
began to outline the program of speaking
for the ovenlns It wna only reasonable
that Mr. Kimball would be given one of
the honored positions.
So Mr. Kimball, graduate of the Mich
igan law achool in 1S3, wna nalgncd to
apenk ou the Council Bluffs nluninl Mr,
Kimball waa mightily pleased nt the
honor accorded him nnd rejoiced that he
would bo able to' nlr hla vlewa on "Coun
cil Bluffs the mother, Omaha the daugh
ter," before a bunch of Omaha men.
Tuesday nfternoon he sat down to coin
pose his speech, which was to make
every ninn present hi the dinner alt up
and take notice. It waa to bo some
speech, the pride of the evening.
Laboring diligently over n dictionary,
selecting only the beat words, using the
best phrases nnd expressions, Kimball
carefully dictated hla speech to his
atenogrnphcr, who wrote na Kimball
anoko. After the flrat few lines Kimball
grew more and more eloquent, his
stenographer became touched by his aen
tences, and thereby lira a tnte.
Arte Klmnnll had dictated for half nn
hour, the stenographer suddenly came out
of tho tranco that Kimball's oratorical
prowess had provoked nnd In n fright
ened mnnner threw her hands over her
face and burst Into tears.
"What's the matter?" Inquired Kim
With her whole body shaking from the
sobs of anguish, with tho hot tenrs
trickling down her face, the flustered
stenographer finally managed to state her
"I forgot to put any paper In the ma
chine," sho sobbed.
Thus Kimball couldn't use the beauti
ful words ho Intended nnd won forced
to content himself with a.n Impromptu
upeerh which, however, contained most
of Mr. KlmbaU'a Ideaa about the reapeo
tlve ngea nnd values of Omaha nnd
Council Bluffs, and was a close second to
the outburst of eloquence of I F. Cro,
foot, who holds many of the medals for
apcaklng around theso parte.
