THE BEEs OMAHA, TUESDAY. MAY 12, 1014. Society TV. By MELLIFIOIA. Monday, May 11, 1914. THE gentleman farmer Ir the Ideal of probably half of the hard working business men of the crowded city, and many college men who fit themselves for a placo In the business world change their plans and go to the country Instead. "Back to the farm movement" Is one of the popular trends of the present time. And one dreams of sitting on tho wide verandas and the foreman tells you that there will bo wonderful crops. The cattle and pigs are fat and the horses are sleek and well fed; tho birds are singing merrily in the leafy trees, tho violets are In bloom, your motor Is drlvon up to the door and you "go to town" to do the marketing. But let me tell you some of the exciting thlngR that really happan. Just ask Mr. Charles Saunders, Mr. Myron Learned, Mr, Wayland Magot-. Mr. Louis Nosh, Mr. A. J. Love or Mr. Hubert Owen, all of whom havo heeded the call, "Back to nature and the farm." Mr. Saunders can tell you why ho missed a dinner encasement tha man who took care of the cows, went to town and did not return, bo Mr. Saunders remained at homo; no dairy maids being around, he did the milking. Mr. Magee can tell you how easy. It Is to handle a dozen or more of tramp harvest hands, who have been paid off Saturday afternoon and re turn most all hours of the night and morning for a "quiet Sunday In the country." Fortunately, Mr. Magee was quite an athloto at tho University of Chicago, and he has plenty of opportunity to use his prowess. Mr. Hubert Owen, since leaving tho University of Nebraska, has pur chased a farm near Missouri Valley. During tho cold woather this spring a mother pig and a litter of six young ones died of exposure, leaving one husky little orphan piggy. The little fellow was duly christened Clarenco and was brought up on a bottle. He soon became very chummy with Jerry, a beautiful Scotch collie of noblo birth, but the class distinction and the nationality seemed but to bind the friendship tho closer. "Where thou goost, there go 1" seomed to be their motto, and the well-groomed collie even tries to keep Clarence's face clean. Recently Clarence decided to see a bit of the world and started for Missouri Valley: Jerry, a bit apprehensive, accompanlod him. They ar rived safely at the famous railroad town, but It was too noisy for Clar ence, so after going through tho town he started off In the other direc tion and arrived at a farm three miles the other side of tho city. Tha farm quite pleased him and he was disposed to remain, for Jerry still ac companied him, so he was not lonesome. In the moantlmo Mr. Owen started efter the strange travelers and found little difficulty in following their trail, for many people had soen them. After a long tramp he found them at the other farm and started home, driving the grunting Clarenco before him. Back through the town thoy went and on toward home, "Gee, I hope the frat men don't hear of this," Mr. Owen said to him self as he saw the amused faces of everyone he met. Clarence Is threat ened with being locked up with the other pigs If he develops any more curiosity. For Prominent Visitor. Mrs. C.

EUROPE HASJTS SUSPICIONS Gravel Declares Countries Not Sure of Uncle Sam's Mexican Motive. HUMOR IN AMBASSADOR'S JOB Former ItepreaentatlTe In Sweden Telia Rome of the Pnnny Thlnst Peculiar to the Work In Forelsrn Land. That all Europe Is Inclined to retard us with a suspicious eye and that In a case llkft the present difficulty with Mexico tho European countries aro Im bued with the belief that we are actuated by no other motive than that of meed, na stated by Colonel Charles II. Graves of Duluth, former ambassador to Bweden, In his address on tho "Diplomatic Service" at the Commercial club, at noon, He men tioned this only Incidentally In connec tion with bis discussion on the function of an ambassador. He said an ambassa dor could do a great deal tinder the cir cumstances In setting aright the mind of any European country on the subject In hand. "We cannot send a special envoy to nil the countries of Europe at a time like this," he said, "In order to tell them the American attitude In this particular In ternational action that Is attracting at tention. 80 It Is the function of the am bassador to do this, He has been In the foreign country for some time, Ho Is known nnd respected, If he Is the right kind of an ambassador he ha made friends and formed Intimate relationships with the men of affairs In the country to which he Is ambassador, so that a few words from him nt a tlmo like this will do much toward setting the mind of that country aright on wh.at our problem really I with a country like Mexico." Ilntnorna !lilc of Job. Colonel Grave gave much of hi time to a discussion of some of the humorous phases of an ambassador's life. He gave his personal experience with a woman who had written to him asking that ho get her a divorce at once from her hua hand In Sweden, an she was then n America and had met a man she wished ' to marry, Another experience was that with a woman In Philadelphia, who had writ ten to her lover, u Mr. Peterson, In Stockholm. She wrote Ambassador Graven a pathetic letter saying Peterson had not answered her last letter and sho wanted the ambassador to look him up at once and ascertain the reason. He replied that the Potersons were more numerous In Stockholm even than tho Smiths In Philadelphia. Again a colored woman culled on him at Stockholm and secured passports to' go Into Russls. "I'm an artist," she explained, as her reason for wanting to go to Ituasia. "Water color or oil?" asked the am bassador. "Oh, no, sir," she explained. "I's a pong nnd dance artist." I nut thl wa not the last of her. In a tew week tne ambassador received tt tetegram from her at St. Petersburg reading, "Wire at once money for fare back to Stockholm."
