It most have been an interesting sight to see the large floe rise up for
a distance of ldo feet, where they hesitated, evidently to getjheir bear

It is said that.the birds wade the trip back to Chicago in ten hours.
bich is less time than it takes, a train to make the trip. The Chcago
association contemplates shipping the birds to western Nebraska, too, that
a longer flight may bo made.
From Kansas City comes the news that a little battered homing

This year we have had the wonderful
Bird man, Lincoln Beachey, to watch

The colors of Ak-9ar-Ben used in the

are turning, nuts are ripening tyid every
where you see the little squirrels work

Ak-Sar-Bea reminds you that fall it

the change of colors, especially red,

Account of Trip.
By Loii K. Lewellen, Aged 11 Years, Au
burn, Neb. Kod Side.
The Wednesday before school opened
mamma said that I might go to Ne
braska City, that afternoon. So I got
ready and went on the one-flfty-flve.
My Brother, who is three years my
Junior went with me to the depot. When
the train came in, I got on and our dog,
Buuter, got on too, so my brother had to
Bet him off before tho train started. lie
got him off, just in time too, for the
train was starting.
It went very slowly at first but after
It was out of the depot it went faster.
We paited fields of corn and wheat and
we Just passed one field of bay, where
men were working. Nest to It was a small
field, with a large haystack in it
In the same car- with me there were
two Catholic nuns. They were dressed
In black. There waa an old man in
there, who waa asleep.
When I got there, my friend, awhom I
mh going to visit, was at the depot
'to meet me. We went to town, and got
some Jelly-roll for supper, and bought
eome candy to eat on the way home.
Nebraska City is larger that I thought
end we had to no quite a little way. We
went through the parks where the band

Reform ia Copy-Cat. '
By Qlenarla Paid. Emerson, la. Red Side.
"Here conies copy-cat, copy-cat." cried
a group of girls standing on a street cor
ner. Winnie was lier real name, but be
cause she copied all her lessons, the
girls called her "copy-cat."
"I gueae I'd get good grades, too, if
I corded my lesrons," aald Alice.
"Cllrla," said Mae, "today we bad a
written lesson In spelling and ebe had
all her words written down on a piece
of paper and bid under her tablet."
"And she got 100, too," added another
"Well," said1 Nettie, a quiet little girl,
"If I were her, I'd have a little honor
Winnie, passing on the other side of
the street, heard every word, for the
w-lnd blew them to her.
With scarlet cheeka she passed on, but
with a new thought in her mind.
"Honor for myself,' she said to her
self. "I never thought of that."
AH the way home the word "honor"
kept ringing In her ears, even the little
birds seemed to sing, "Honor, honor,"
and when the big clock on the stairs
struck five it seemed to say, "Remember,
Winnie, honor for yourself."
She thought and. thought about it till
at last ahe decided tt quit copying.
The next fteroooh they had a written
lessen in spelling, but Winnie didn't copy
a word, for she bad every word aafely
tucked away In her head.
After a few daya the girls noticed that
Winnie didn't copy any more, ao they
b'Tome gtKid friends again.
. Winnie also found out that it u Just
as easy to larn her lessons as to copy
them and lose her honor.
Story of tho Wind.
By Charlotte Coollcl.ee. Aaed 13 Tears.
I; ' Lend, S. IV Blue Side.
j We all know- that we cannat see the
wind, hilt once upon a t'me Ion, long
aaw, people could see the wind. He wss
I a It root, gittantic fellow,, so gigantic
i that every time he breathed he would
tumhto a bouse down.
Que day a wicked witch called to him
and sa.'d. "Oh, Mr- Wind, would you be
so kind as to Mw me across tho ocean
with your mighty breath??"
He answered back, glad to use bis Im
mense power, "Yes, Mrs. Witch, I will,"
and wilii a mighty breath blew her across
But the wind had not btewa quite hard
enough and tha witch landed knee deep
In a harbor. Of course, the wind had not
meant that the witch should be dropped
Into the wet. wet water, but she thought
that was Just what he meant to do. So
he said a few magic words and where
the giant wind hsd been, there remulncd
nothing but empty air. The wind
howled and screamed, but the witch on)y
said, "Sometime, maybe., someone will
releaao you, but that person must first
overcome me." Today the poor Wlad
realizes that his chances for release are
But In a way I'm rather glad "that the
Witch and the Giant Wind did have this
quarrel. How do you feel about it?

This wonderful effect Is obtained by a
patented device of the ltala Film com

sufficient to furnish remarkable dis
tinction for the headline feature of (his
week's bill at the Orphrnm. The play of

Patrons of the popular Oayety theater
will welcome an entirely new show In the
field of musical burlesque in the "CI Iris
of the Moulin Rouge," who will make
their appearance this afternoon. Py the

P. Nelson are the principal comedians
and prima donna. Borne of the support
ing, east are Nettle Hyde, Harry Hills,
Jimmy Connors, Ethel Marmont, Mabel
Lynost and the four London ' girls. The
costuming of this organisation was left
to Joe Hurt lg. who is also the owner And
