Girl Worried Over
Loss of Relatives
in the War Arena
Worry of Mary Malacha, a ball girl at
Hotel Rome, over tho fate of her five
cousins In tho Austrian army now fight

creased by a necessary delay In dispatch
ing a quantity of surgical cotton, which
she mailed through tho Omaha postof
flce and was held up by the postal And
She constantly feared that she would
receive bad news of her relatives at the
front, but no word came. Healing of
the dirth of absorbent cotton and ban
dages in tho European hospitals, she
wrapped up two big bundles and sent
them by parcel post In the care of the
Red Cross society at Caslav, Bohemia,
and Olamouo, Moravia.
As Superintendent of Malls Metland
and Collector of Customs Cadet Taylor
did not know the contents of the parcels,
they held them until Miss Malaoha could
explain. Now she is more worried than
ever, the postal and customs formalities
required by law having added to her
nervousness concerning her soldier rela

The absorbent cotton Is now on Its way,
however, and the girl's associates at the
hotel are trying to console her aa best

Pioneers to Watch
the Old Year Out
and New One In
Members of the Douglas County Asso
ciation of Nebraska Pioneers have laid
their plans for seeing the old year out
and the new one in. With this end in
view they will gather Thursday evonlng
at their 'rooms in the court house and
remain there until after midnight.
The watch meeting of the pioneers of
Bouglaa county and Nebraska will be
conducted along the lines of those of
years ago, when the members of the as
sociation were young men and women,
and when Nebraska, too, was young. It
will be something of a smoker. Besides,
there will be a good-sired keg of hard
cider, several bushels of doughnuts, any
quantity of mince pies and a great
boiler of coffee. During the evening there
will be a literary and musical program.
On the side there will be some fiddling
and a chance for those who feel like It
to do a little dancing.

This committee will differ from previ

from time to time in that, it Is said, it
will be expected to assume an attitude
of Investigation rather than to remain
merely in a receptive position. The com

In the nature of an answer to the request
of the Omaha Bar association that an
Investigation be made of the last grand
Jury, which indicted several lawyers, it

certain, it Is asserted, that the lawyers'
request will not be granted.
Previous committees named by the
Judges for the purpose of dealing ith
charges of unprofessional conduct against
lawyers have been without result, ex

that the club will yet get together on the

adjourned without any definite decision
on the matter having been reached.
There is one more chance, however.
Another meeting Is to be held next Satur

proposition of a banquet is to be brought

OMAHA PRINTER INVENTS
A NEW STYLE "STICK"
A new printer's "stick," for use In Job
composing, has Just been patented and
prepared for manufacture by C. t Stu

employed by the Festner Printing com
pany. Fritilers assert that his invention
will prove a great help to improved work
in that trade.
Its advantage Is that it can be set ac

whereas the old style printer's "stick"
can be set only to one-twelfth of an

name and has made up a number of the
new appliances, but haa not decided
whether to manufacture them himself or
sell his rights to a company.
