SOCIETY for the coming four weeks bid fair to- be mora occupied with
helping the destitute at home and the pillaged abroad than in the
mere intent of amusing Itself. Matrons of prominence are not only
giving their names, but their time and endeavors to promoting sales,
teas and baxaars for philanthropic objects, not to apeak of the great charity
ball to be given at the Hotel Fontenelle Monday evening. The Yuletlde
tearoom Is a great undertaking and means the outlay of much strength and
Another hard personal tas kwhlch many smart matrons have taken
upon themselves will be the work of telephoning in a gigantic endeavor to
reach all Greater Omaha and induce every Christmas gift giver to put a
Red Cross seal upon the gift package. ,
.A well know student of sociology has Istely eid that the days of a
wholly frivolous society seem parsing, and that the fashionable world ia
showing itself in a new light. "What has been railed the Bon Ton has be
come a bulwark," he Raid, "without which our best Institutions would crum
ble to ruin. In every big undertaking today. In art, in music. In philan
thropy, there must be a backing of names of those socially prominent. Anl
such nanies are never asked for in vain."
Evidently what was said of the east holds true In the midwest. The
Omaha social calendar, while covered with names of the richest and most
prominent families, looks more like a register of good deeds than a record

i Special Committee Atki that Matter
Be Taken Up by the Entire
EXTRA TOLL IS ' THE ISSUE
Commissioners Butler, Kugel and
Wlthnell,' appointed several months
go by the city council to serve as a
special committee to investigate the
reasonableness of the B-cent tele
phone toll between Omaha proper
and the South Side, have asked that
the committee of whole discuss this
matter. A conference will be held
next Monday morning.
The committee Is Inclined t believe the
toll should be removed, but Is agreeable
that the telephone company be granted
Areameat of Officiate.
Thj gist of the argument offered by
officials of the telephone company Is
that tinder the existing anne arrange
. nt 12 per cent of the patrona of Greater
Omaha now pay 80 per cent of the
Omatm-Pouth Side buslne -, these patrons
having what Is known as unlimited serv
ice In return for a rate o. 0 centa more
than the limited tone service. The com
pany . further asserts that the prenent
aversge toll paid per year by M per cent
of patrona Is n cents. The logic of that
argument la ssld to be this: Those who
have real need for the South Side serv
ice pay the extra d0 cents per month, and
that under the 6-cent charfie S8 per cent
of patrons average only twelve calls per
yea The company contends a readjust
ment of rates would be necessary if the
toll should be abolished.
Commissioner Jardlne aatd he believed
the preaent plan Is the better, and he
added that to disturb conditions would
result In the telephone company receiving
even more revenue for the service than
la being received. Commissioner Hum
mel aald it Is the duty of the commis
sioners to regulate the rates.
Aged Man Hangs

Well Known Remedy
Important toDitpote of Waste
from the Stomach With
People frequently attribute to failure
of he digestive orgar.i conditions that
are primarily due to l-iactlve bowels,
and apply remedies that from their very
nature are more apt to aggravate than
to relieve the disorder.
When the bowela act regularly the
stomach la In better shape to perform Its
allotted tasks and can usually be de
pended upon. To keep the bowels in
condition there Is no more effective
remedy than the combination of simple
laxative herba known as Dr. Csldwell's
Syrup Pepsin which Is sold in drug
stores for fifty cents a bottle.
Dr. Caldwell haa prescribed this rem
edy In his practice for over a quarter of
a century and It is today the standard
houaehold remedy In thousands of
homes. Mr. Thos. Iel-oach. with the De
partment of the Interior, Office of Indian
Affairs, at Washington, wrote Dr. Cald
well recently that "Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin is. the best laxative I have any
knowledge of and the cleaning up guar
anteed by its use relieves every organ."
I " iT' f
MR. THOS. DeLOACH.
A bottle of Dr.' Caldwell's Syrup Pep
sin should be on hand. In every home
for use when needel. A trial bottle,
free of charge, can be obtained by writ
ing to Dr. W. B. Caldwell, 4.4 W h

Not Cruel to Force
Husband to Buy Car
if it is a Flivver
To compel a .husband to buy an auto
mobile, even though It be a flivver, la
not cruelty on the part of a wife, if he
haa the money to pay for It, District
Judge Bedlck ruled In the divorce suit
of James J. Marecek against Fanohlon
Marecek testified thst his pretty 20-year-old
wife had required him to buy a
car and take herself and her relatives
to rae Panama exposition. He alleged
that that constituted cruelty.
But Judge Itedlck denied that the wifely
command to buy the car, waa cruel, al
though he granted the husband a divorce
on other grounds.
If, Instead of belag content with a
flivver, Mre. Marecek had Insisted upon
a huge twin-six. costing much more
money than her huaband had in his pos
session, his ruling might have been dif
ferent, the Judge Intimated.
"Although the wife Insisted that her
husband should buy an automobile," said
Judge Redlck, "the car which was pur
chased was sufficiently low In price to
be well within the means of the hus
band, and It would be going too far to
ray that the attitude of the wife con

and securing several pieces of kltchenware
from hotels for trial repair. The Joba, It
is asserted, were neatly done, and as a
result they secured contracts with various
hostel rles for considerable work. On the
return of these articles they were found
to be exceedingly heavy. Close perusal of
the contract revealed the fact that the
hotel men had agreed to pay for the work
by weight at an exorbitant figure. The
