suffrage. The story is told that when
suffrage was lost in a certain Cana
dian province the overjoyed legisla
ture of the district made some very
unpleasant remarks. Great was their
chagrin, then, when Mrs. McClung
wrote and produced in their own city
a successful little playlet cleverly bur
lesquing their attitude and remarks.
Mrs. McClung has a nineteen-year-old
son in the European trenches.
When she bade him goodbye at the

Omaha Art Lovers
Buy Show Pieces
Omaha will keep some of the finest
works of art now on exhibition at
the Hotel Fontenelle under the aus
pices of the Omaha Society of Fine
Arts. It is announced that the paint
ing by Paul Dougherty, entitled "Mid
summer," has been purchased by Mr.
Charles T. Kountze. The small bronze
called the "Blizzard," which is the
work of Solon Borglum, will become
the property of Mrs. Moshier G. Col
petzer. The seated figure of Lincoln,
which is a replica of the original now
in the east, will also become the pride
of some Omaha art lover. It has been
sold to one of two persons, the situa
tion being that if one does not buy,
the other will.
Frances Nash to Play
In Omaha on Decmber 10
Frances Nash will be heard at the
Metropolitan club house on December
10. Miss Nash's story is not that
of the artist who has risen in spite
of poverty, but of the artist who has
held herself to a sound purpose in
spite of the many lures of riches.
Miss Nash says: "Everyone in this
world should have some goal. I de
cided to enter the professional field
because in no other way would I hold
myself to the highest standard of ac
complishment. When a musician
knows he has to appear in public
at stated intervals and give an ac
counting of his talents, in compari
son with other performers it brings
out his best efforts as nothing else
will. Inspiration alone is not enough."
