Jardine is to Open
Up Light Question
At the regular meeting of the city coun
cil this morning City Commis
sioner Jardine will offer a resolution
which he believes will start the ball roll
ing toward a definite solution of the
electric street lighting situation.
It will be proposed that the city ad
vertise for bids for furnishing current for
lie entire lighting system, the city to
install and own the equipment. This will
give the street railway company, the city
waler department and the electric light
company a chance to bid on the "juice."
An alternative proposition will be to In
stall the new type Maida lamps, maintain
tnem and furnish the current on a con
tract for five years, the city to have the
option to take over the equipment at the
nd of three years.
This resolution will open the way for
discussion again end Mr. Jardine be
lieves something will be accomplished be
for long. The council committee of the

Members of the Douglas County
Association of Nebraska Pioneers
bad the time of their lives Tuesday.
There were between 300 and 350 of
them men and women whose resi
dence In Nebraska dates back from
thirty-five to more than fifty years.
To be a pioneer a residence of
thirty-five years In the state is re
quired, and consequently there were
not many youngsters at the celebra
tion. The festivities Incident to the
mJd-wlnter picnla of the pioneers
started at 10 o'clock In the forenoon
and were concluded about 4 In the
afternoon. During the six hours It
was one continuous round of pleas
ure, with big eats from shortly after
neon until each and every appetite
was completely satisfied.
The pioneers held their mld-wlnter pic
nlo in the Masonic building. Sixteenth
street and Capitol avenue, having the
undisputed run of the entire second
floor. The old lodge room was used as
the dining room and the side rooms as
places where the men and women who
helped make early history gathered and
recounted Incidents that occurred when
Nebraska was in its swaddling clothes
and Omaha was a village far out on
Miller Famishes Coffee.
The dinner was toothsome and there
was an abundance and to spare. It con
sisted of hot meats, vegetables, sand
wiches, bread and butter, apple, mince
and pumpkin pies, ooffee and cake. With
the exception of the coffee everything
was prepared by the women of the asso
ciation. The coffee was furnished by
Rome Miller, who has pledgod himself
to donate coffee at all the functions held
by the pioneers, so long as he lives.
It was a lap dinner, being serred on
plates and by waiters picked from the
sons and daughters of the pioneers.
The function was under the direction of
Mone P. O'Brien, general chairman, who
called to his assistance as many persons
as he saw fit, and he saw fit to call
some thirty-five to serve on floor and
Old Picture of OmJLha.
The rooms were neatly decorated for
the occasion, flags and tri-coiored bunt
ing being draped along the walls, over
the doors and from the chandllers. The
walls were hung with pictures, the faces
of many of the pioneer who have been
called to their long rest, looking down
upon the comrades of years ago. Besides
these, there were plotures of pioneer
scenes in Nebraska, the old sod houses
and the bull trains going across the
plains. One picture that attracted spe
cial attention was a photograph of
Omaha, taken In VU formerly owned
by Ted Relpen, and by him presented to
the society. -
The photograph presented by Mr. Rel
pen Is 18x36 Inches and was apparently
taken , from a point not far from the
crest of the High School hill. 1 The view
Is to the southeast, and In the fore
ground appears a number of small resi
dences, leng slnoe gone. Farther toward
the river, Douglas and Farnam streets
can be seen, but not recognisable by an
Omaha resident of more recent years.
There are no sky-scrapers or palatial
office buildings, but Instead some rows
of squatty one and two-story frame
structures. The buildings on the streets
running east and west extend down olose
to the Missouri river, that is seen In
As general chairman, after the din

Mayor Dahlman made a short address,
paying a splendid tribute to the pioneers
and the work they accomplished during
the period when the country around and

the city. I
Mrs. Reese Barber sang a solo, after '

Lenten pastoral, calling attention of
tbe communicants of his church to
the observance of Lent. The pas
"My Dear Brethren: The church will
soon call everyone, by the solemn obser
vance of Ash Wednesdsy, to the religious
duties and personal self-denials of the
forty days of fasting and prayer.
"I call upon the clergy and laity to use
more than ordinary conscientiousness In
the discharge of those duties and obliga
tions which are required. I exhort you
to draw nearer to God, and seek mors
lovingly to know His will, and of His
saving rraoe In sacrament and prayer.
May you by honest, searching self-examination
ascertain your true spiritual
condition. Let tbe sermons and instruc
tions of the clergy be such as will help
their people to resist sin, and to grow la
grace and holiness. Offer more frequently
the holy eucharlst which our blessed
Lord enjoined before His betrayal and
death, saying: 'Do this or offer this
in rememberances of Me.' Let social
gatherings and entertainments be given
up entirely; and may those who are com
municants of the church at least be con
sistent with their tows, and avoid bring

"In these days of strike and blood

affords all patriotic Christian citizens
an opportunity for prayer that our

church in these United Mates Is calling
her sons and daughters to a 'mighty
campaign for the souls of men and

of such missions have been already held
m the diocese, and blessed results have
followed them. Others are to be held
before Easter In a number of Important
points in the diocese and we can and

DO THIS FIRST YOU !
You know, and every physician
knows, that when any sickness has
passed, whether it be throat trouble,
organic disturbances, contagious dis
eases, or even a severe cold, a relapse
is (eared, because sickness robs the
system of Nature's resistance and
leaves it subject to lingering germs.
Drugs never build up a wom-out
body only fond can do that, and the
first thing to take after any sickness is
the concentrated, blood-making oil
food in Scott's Emulsion,' which feeds
the tissues, benefits the blood and
strengthens both lungs and throat.
Physicians prescribe Scott's Emul
sion after sickness. Nurseseverywhere
advocate it. Scott's is pure medicinal
food, without alcohol or drugs.
