as she is best known, is the guest of
her cousins, Mrs. Charles T. Kountze
and , Mrs.- Osgood T. Eastman, after
"covering" the Chicago Republican
convention for the Brooklyn Eagle.
. Mrs. Payne was assigned to write
the political convention from the
woman's point of view, and she re
counted many amusing experiences in
so doing. "If someone hadn't brought
a fat man nearby two sandwiches and
two pieces of pie; which he shared
with me, I would have starved the
first day," she averred. No one
wanted to leave the convention hall.

Should Have Been
Given to Militia
Mrs. Bertha Getschmann, one of the
Omaha mothers who gave a son to
the militia, protests against the ap
parent lack of appreciation on the
part of Omaha citizens.
She declares that the efforts and
intentions of the young men who ral
ly about the colors when their coun
try needs them are entitled to more
encouragement than they got .when
they entrained for the concentration
camp at Lincoln.
"Where was llie Commercial club?
The city and county officials? The
civic organizations of which we hear
so much, but see so little? Why was
there not a band to hearten the boys
as they marched out of Omaha, per
haps never to return again? Why,
Mayor Dahlman was the only city of
ficial I saw who took enough interest
even to come down to the train to
bid the boys farewell The only oth
ers interested, apparently, were rela
tives and close personal friends.
"In other cities the departure of
the militia companies was marked by
a demonstration that infused the boys
and the community alike with the
serious importance of the event.
"True heroism, of course, is without
ostentation; the boys showed that
by marching down Harney street to
the depot instead of parading through
the city. It was the solemn duty, of
Omaha citizens to have prepared
some kind of fitting ceremony to
