INTEREST BEING AROUSED
By MELLIFICIA August 17.
Next week, beginning Tuesday, so
ciety will turn its attention to that
noble creature, the horse. The oc
casion is the opening of the Great
Western circuit races at the Speed
way. On that day Omahans will drive
out to the track in their commodious
" cars, there to forget them completely
in the thrilling sights of a horse race.
Although automobiles may have sup
planted horses as a means of trans
portation, they have in no way sur
passed them in interest
- The human, pulsing endeavor of
the splendid horses which have been
entered in the race will awaken the ad
miration of the most apathetic. Oma
ha society, however, has never been
apathetic toward horses. Many of the
prominent women among us are ex
cellent horse women. The horse shows
in the Auditorium were wont to call
forth beauty and the chivalry of Oma
ha society. Miss Esther Byrne, now
Mrs. William Fitzgerald; Miss Louise
Peck, now Mrs. Denise Barkalow,
were some of the charming and

reservations for the races are: T. C.

Kind to the
By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
An important point to be watched
when washing the head is that the
soap shall not be too strong; that is
to say, contain too much' alkali, as
this excess will proceed to "make
soap" with the natural oil of the
hair and scalp and wash it out, leav
ing both the scalp and hair hard
and dry. This can be tested by trying
it on the hands. Any soap which fath
ers too freely, though it may be excel
lent for the washtub or kitchen floor,
should not be used upon the human
skin. Also another straw is that the
lighter the cake of soap feels in the
hand and the more nearly it will float
in water, the milder and safer for
toilet use it is usually, as this means
it contains plenty of fat and not
too much alkali.
For the perfect ventilation of the
scalp the best and most perfect in
strument ever invented is the hair
brush, in the proportion of one part
of bristles to three of "elbow
grease." This scalp-saving combina
tion works partly by lifting and fluff
ing up the hair from the scalp so as
to allow free circulation of air,
partly by stimulating the circulation
of the scalp by gently pulling at the
rooti of the hair, and lasts, but not
least, by brushing out of the hair
any dust or dirt or superfluous oil
that may be in it, or any scales which
the hair has lifted up from iti root
heath. It is not best to try to reach the
surface of the scalp at every stroke,
nor to use too stiff a brush, because
the hair and acalp form a curious
self-cleaning combination, in that the
hair, although apparently so glossily
smooth, is really covered with tiny
cales which point upward and thus
carry up and out as they grow any
thing which may have got into the
roots of the hairbulbs or onto the
surface of the scalp. So that trying
to brush the scalp itself is unneces
sary and may easily do more harm
Use no brush stiffer, or harder,
than you can comfortably use on the
back of your hand for this sort of
"currying," which should form nine
tenths of your brushing, although of
course for simply parting or smooth
ing and disentangling hair, or for a
brief "glow," a stiffer brush may also
be used. As a general thing, wire
brushes do more harm than good to
For l the exercise - of the scalp,
fingers were made not only before
forka but before brushes, combs or
masseurs. Unfortunately, the habit
of rubbing or scratching the head has
fallen into esthetic and conventional
direpute, both on account of its un
couthness and of the transient popu
lation of "undesirable citizens" which
it is supposed to imply. But any
thing which gives us as much comfort
and satisfaction as thorough rubbing
and scratching of the head does is
pretty likely to have something good
ifi it. Fortunately, there is much in
a name, and when we change the title
of this uncouth and uncultured pro
ceeding to "massage" it becomes a
process of high hygienic value at

When the Animals Speak
BY GARRETT P. SERVISS.
MADE this picture on the boardwalk at Atlantic
City, It shows one of the best-known ladies of
Chicago and New York City, Mrs. Mollie Netch-
er Neuberger, riding in one of the big chairs with
her good-looking son, Townsend Netcher.
Mrs. Neuberger, although she personally manages
one of the biggest enterprises in the United States,
and with her own business genius has beaten most of
the business men at their own game, seems to find
time to enjoy herself.
She has two sons and one daughter. The boy
shown here is the kind that the tailors would like to
have to put in their advertisements, more than six
feet high and several ieet wide and very good look
ing. A fortunate mother, and a fortunate son to have
such a mother. NELL BRINKLEY.
Various Ways of Serving Boiled Beef
Thorough and vigorous massage of
the scalp for ten or fifteen minutes
both night and morning with those
best of rollers or vibrators ever yet
invented, the tips of the fingers, is of
great value in keeping the scalp, and
through it the hair, in healthy condi
tion. It is best done either just before
or just after retiring at night and just
before rising in the morning. This for
the reason that it is au admirable

Said the learned cow to her white
calf: "I do not wish you to frolic
with those brindles and reds any
"But, mamma," protested the white
calf, frisking its tail impatiently, "they
are very funny."
'And they are also very vulgar and
low-bred," returned the learned cow.
"They do not classify with us."
"But I have heard the men in the
milking-yard say that their mammas
are the best milk-givers in the world,"
replied the calf fidgetily nuzzling her
"Milk-givers, indeed!" exclaimed the
cow, disdainfully tossing her long,
gracefully curved, ebon-pointed horns.
"Were we born into the world only
to till pails? Listen, my child, and I
will tell you what I learned last eve
ning when the master was talking
with a friend in front of the stalls.
"They did not guess that I was list
ening, while I placidly chewed my
cud, and I almost laughed when the
master patted me or. the forehead and
said: 'If this cow knew her family
tree she would be a proud animal. Her
ancestry runs away back of ours, and
I believe that she is a direct de
scendant of the Great Bos Primi
genius, the only strain of the ox fam
ily blood that has survived all the
vicissitudes of the world since the age
of the ice.'
"I felt a lump in my throat at that,
and turned my eyes upon the master
in a way which made him stop for
a moment and then say, smiling, to
his friend: 'Why, look at her! She
seems actually to have understood
what I was saying. Have we got back
to the days of Scheherezade?' Then
they both laughed, and the master
continued his talk, still patting my
"But who was Bos Primigenius?"
interrupted the white calf, which was
"A very great and proud animal,
my dear, which roamed the forests
and feared nothing and was slave to
nobody. He was the great ancestor
of Urus, the long-horned and the
mighty, whom the warlike Julius
Caesar saw and admired in the for
ests of Gaul and Germany. We have
his blood in our veins, and these
others have it not. They are degen
erate descendants of a race inferior
to ours, who have allowed themselves
to be trained as great milk-givers,
forsooth! Look at their short, stubby
horns, .their shapeless figures, and
their stupid, submissive faces!"
"But, mamma, who was their great
"Bos Brachycerus," replied the cow,
with a contemptuous shrug. "He had
little, straight horns and was, no
doubt, a great coward."
"But was he as old as our ancestor?"
"Yes, I suppose he was. The mas
ter said that both the races originated
before the age of ice, and lived all
through it, but ours must have been
the best, for it has survived until
now, while the other has become ex
tinct, leaving the mongrels to repre
sent it, like these wonderful milk-giving
"But how did our ancestor manage
to make his blood run pure so long
while the other could not?"
"Native superiority, my child! We
are Chillinghams, and the Chilling
hams can trace their lineage straight
back to the great white Bos, with the
long horns. The Holsteins and the
Friesians, the master said, are also
nearly pure, and close relatives of
ours, so you can play with their chil
dren." "Yes, mamma, but the other day
there was in the field a big. hand
some, fine-looking steer, with long
horns, who, they said, came from
Texas, and who was one of the last
suvivors of his family. Oh, how he
could run, and how noble he looked!
If I should meet him again should
I avoid him?"
"No, you may greet him with re
spect. He, too, has the blood of Bos
Primigenius, though not so pure as
ours. His family came to America
from Spain, where there is another
branch of our race. His fathers ran
free of the vast western plains, re
suming the life of our great an
cestor, in a new world, until slave
making man invaded his home and
treated him as he has tried to treat
all of our kind, pretending that it is
better to serve and be well cared for
than to be free and live your own
"But, mamma, how old are we, any
way, and where did the ox family
"Some time you will know what I
mean when I say that we began in
the Lower Pliocene, an ancient period
of geology, which existed perhaps
millions of years ago, and that we
lived then in the country now called
India. We passed into Europe in
the Upper Pliocene age, and"
But the white calf had ceased to
pay any attention. Two or three
brindled forms went gamboling and
kicking by, and it instinctively started
to chase them.
"Come back here!" mooed tha
learned cow, stamping her foot.
"Have you forgotten Bos Primi
genius already? For shame!"
