Its treasurer. Mrs. August M. Horglum.
"Kanjr letters accompany these con

Following is a letter received from a
young woman who is earning her own
"I have been much Interested In the
newspaper accounta of your project to
care for tho French orphans, and I want
to help the little people left orphans by
this cruel war. 1 think this appeals to
me particularly, because, my mother was
left a widow with five small girls to raise
and I know something of the hardships
aha endured in raising and educating
us. I am Inclosing my chock for IJfS.W,
and If it la allowable to chooae, I prefer
a littlo girl as my protege."

When the littlo daughter of a rich and
prominent Omaha family was asked the
other day what she wished for her birth
day she replied promptly. "Oh, please.
mother, give me a French orphan!"
Nine-year-old Elinor Kountse, tho only
daughter of the Charles Thomas
Kountzes, asked for a war orphan when
Miss Schofield first came to Omaha on
her mission of mercy. The contribution
was sent In the child's name with her
request that It be a girl.
It was only recently that little Elinor
learned that the orphan not going
to be sent to her In Omaha she had
formed her own childish conception of
what was Involved, and she was bitterly
disappointed to discover that a little
French girl was not going to be raised
by her, under her own care and super
vision, "Just as If she were my own lit
tle sister," the child expressed It.
The youngest contributor is now Stelllta
Stapleton, daughter of the Daniel C

A Simple Way To
The Manicure Lady
' She Tells the Htad Barber slew
the Picture Show Impressed Her
By -UII.MAM K. K1HK.
"I was to tee a picture show last
night," ssld the Manicure Lady, "and it
was so sad that I cried right In the
theator. My escort looked kind of cheap
because he didn't bring no handkerchief,
and mine got so damp I couldn't use It
"It ain't no disgrace to have a tender
heart," said the Hosd Barber. "I wish
my landlord was galted more that way."
"This picture wss about a young girl
that was Jilted at the last minute." said
the Manicure Lady. "She read them
cruel words which he wrote to her, and
then she put on her bridal .dress and
tried to kill herself. Her mother came in
Just In time and saved her."
"If I was a girl I wouldn't kill myself
for no gent," said the Head Barber.
"Gents is too easy to go. If a girl la
wise, and of course If I had been a girl
I would have been a wise one."
"Of course!" said the Manicure Lady,
freexlngly. "Of course you would be a
wise girl. I don't see what keeps your
brains from oozing out of your ear.
George. If you had been living In them
days, Mister Sockratcs would have been
working for you.
"I'll tell you one thing, though. If a
young man ever trifled witn my young
heart and I got wise to it, I would make
a awful tramp out of him before I got
through. I think that kind of a man is a
awful low sort. George, even if he hap
pens to be a rich aristocrat. As Master
Tennyson once said, 'Kind hearts is
more than coroners."
"This Is a funny old world," mused the
Head Barber. "Sometimes I think some
of us gets more than our share, the Same
as I did when I married the Missus. I
never deserved no such grand girl. And
when I think how I've got her and then
think how lota of better fellows gets
stung. It seems to me I'm a pretty lucky
dog even if my horses don't always win
"Of course you're lucky, George, but
not no more than you deserve to be. I
only hope that when I have whispered
yes and walk up the aisle of the church
I will be walking along side as true a
gent as you aro, only more handsome."
"I never was much on looks, I know,"
said the Head Barber. "When I wae a
kid they used to call me Frogfaoe. That
ain't nd pet name, no way you figure it,
because nobody ever seen a frog that
you could call handsome. Their eyes Is
big, but too bulgy, and they ain't got
no expression. Their faces never lights
"No, frogs certainly ain't handsome."
agTeeed the Manicure Lady, "but who
ever started the nickname on you must
have been kind of Jealous. You ain't the
handsomest man In the world, George,
hut goodness knows you are above the
average, and when a man gets too hand
some he ain't usually a good provider.

"One of my neighbors uptown is mar
ried to a man that looks Ilka a Greek
god and provides for her like a Greek
peddler. There is Greeks and Greeks, and
she got a little of both kinds.
"My nature is one of them gentle kind,
George, like a rippling river, but when
It overflows everybody usually takes to
the high grounds."
"I've noticed that," said the Head
Barber, admiringly. "Nobody gets very
gay around you. At least. I never seen
'No. you never seen anybody," said
the Manicure Lady. "No gent ever treated
me disrespectful fcr more than two or
three seconds, and they better not had!"
There is one sure way that haa never
failed to remove dandruff at once, and
that la to dissolve it, then you destroy it
entirely. To do this. Just get about four
ounces of plain, common liquid a iron
from any drug store (this Is all you will
need), apply it at nlfht when retiring:
use enough to moisten the s-alp and rub
It in gently with the finger tlr.
By morning, moat if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will comiMetely dis
solve and entirely destroy every single
sign and trace of It, no matter how much
dandruff you may have.
You will find all Itching and digging
of the scalp will atop Instantly, and your
hair will be fluffy, lustrous, glossy, silky
and oft, and look and feel a hundred
times better. Advertisement.

JARDINE BELIEVES IN
City Commissioner Jardine believes the
members of the Board of Education may
be impressed by pictures. When ordinary
conversation fails he holds that pictures
are effective. He Is trying the picture
stunt on the school directors and believe
be will succeed.
The school officials do not take kindly
to the proposed grading of the Dodge
street hill on account of Central High
cchool. They believe tho grado would
leave the school building in an unsightly
position. Mr. Jardine drew a picture of
the school as It will appear after the
grading. He had one of his draftsmen
prepare a correct view and then he sub
mitted it to the School board.
"Just show them pictures." remarked
