OMAHA'S OLD HOME
WEEK IHJEW YORK
Denizens of World's Bis-trest
City Learn a Few Things
THEY IMPORT OUR ARTISTS
By A. R. GROH.
These stories were told me by the
society editor and they're dandies.
They show how men and women of
Omaha and Nebraska are distinguish
ing themselves in the world.
The greatest living sculptor, a na
tive of Omaha, was here last week
visiting his sister. The greatest
American orator is a Nebraskan. Our
Haywards and Estabrooks go to New
York and get to the top of things
right away. And the sporting editor
says not to forget that Nebraska is
the home of the greatest base ball
pitcher and the greatest wrestler.
But to our stories. The first is
about the society editor herself. She
was in New York City visiting a
friend a while ago and the "city
mouse" took the "country mouse"
around to see the wonderful sights.
To the Metropolitan museum they
went where, in a most commanding
position, stands the colossal sculp
ture, "Mares of Diomedes." Before
this great work the "city mouse"
stopped and bade the "country
mouse" worship and wonder.
"Oh, yes', this was done by two
Omaha men, Gutzon and Solon Borg
lum," quoth the Omaha girl.
Point No. 2.
Pretty good, eh? But, waitl There's
a better one coming. The following
was related by a leading Omaha so
Mrs. K- went to visit a friend in
New York, a woman very proud of
her big city. So she took the woman
from the wild and woolly west to
see the sights.
"We will go to luncheon to hear
May Naudain, who is New York's
latest and greatest musical comedy
star. You may get to meet her and
even speak a few words with her,
"Oh, dear," cried Mrs. K , "I
know May. She's an Omaha girl. I'll
introduce you to her."

Then they went to the Ritz to 3
"the dansant." Maurice was the tern-
sichorean artist and after he had
danced with his partner he came and
asked a petite, fashionably dressed
girl with hair worn bobbed etlect, i
la Mrs. Castle, to dance with him.
"Oh, what a cute little girl!" ex
claimed Mrs. New York.
"Yes, isn't she?" said Mrs. K .
"She's E W of Omaha."
(Stock quotation: New York, 59'4;
By this time the New York hostess
was considerably chastened in spirit,
so to speak. Every wonder that she
exhibited was from Omaha. But she
didn't quite despair.
A Minister's Daughter.
"We will go to a concert and hear
a great singer who has taken the city
by storm," she said. When the singer
appeared on the stage:
"Why, that is Grace Laird," cried
Mrs. K .
"No, you're wrong this time," said

Tabloids of Politics
Little Items About the
Progress of the Campaign.
Every political campaign has its
sadness and its gladness, its joys and
sorrows. This campaign is no ex
ception. The latest morsel of humor
is the word which is being promul
gated from democratic stale head
quarters to advance the thought that
"Wilson is going to carry Nebraska
by 40,000." The democratic bosses
believe that by repeating this often
enough it will give the men in the
trenches a spark of courage and keep
them working until election day. It
is jusl a campaign catch nhrase the
democratic way of whistling off the
ghosts that haunt their waking and

bing; it into the democratic party at
this time, when it is down on its
knees begging for another chance to
"put Columbia's hat on straight."
A nonpartisan meeting will be held
Tuesday in Magnolia hall, Twenty
fourth street ami Ames avenue, under
the auspices oi the Saratoga club, at
which William H. Norman will pre

Hen S. Baker, C. O. l.obeck, Emmet
G. Solomon and Frank Dewey.
The Socialist party of Omaha has
billed a mass meeting for Sunday
afternoon in the Auditorium. The
speakers advertised include Kate
Richards O'Hara, Senator Hitchcock
and R. B. ,Howell as representing, re
spectively, the socialist, democratic

Hard Winter Wheat '
And Durum Eclipse
All Previous Records
Wheat records were smashed on
the Omaha Grain exchange yesterday.
Hard winter wheat, which rose to
the pinnacle price of $1.64 Wednes

the phenomenal price of $1.66.
Durum wheat, the cereal which
used to sell at discount before the
war, reached the record price of $1.70.
This was paid in an actual sale by
