Sundgren Is the Boy
Knowing Most About
Handling Xmas Mail
Shelden Sundgren, 3118 Mason
street,' student of the High School of
Commerce, was awarded the ' first
prize for writing the best essay on
"Handling Christmas Mail." The
award was $5 cash, given by Postmas
ter C. E. Fanning.
Second prize of $3 went to Milton
C. Johnson, 3131 Davenport street, a
sophomore in the Central High school.
Grant A. Forbes, 214 South Forty-first
street, Creighton High school student,
was awarded third honors, $2.
Some time ago the, postmaster of
fered three cash prizes to students of
Omaha schools who would submit the
best essays on the handling of Christ
mas mails. The object was not so
much to get ideas from the students
as to interest the people of the city
to do their Christmas mailing early.
Assistant Postmaster Woodard and
Superintendent o: Mails Metland were
the judges of the contest.

Crepe Paper Has
Many Holiday Uses
Once we spent hours shopping for
Christmas gifts and then hurriedly
and thoughtlessly "did them up.
Now we fare forth with a detailed list,
select quickly the gifts desired and
then very deliberately and carefully
sit down to pack, box, wrap, tie and
decorate them in appropriate Christ
mas fashion. Fine white "wedding
cake" papers, red plated papers, tis
sue and crepe papers in plain colors
and printed crepe papers make the
best wrappings. The boxes shown
are all wrapped in crepe papers, a
plain white, a plain gray and a holly
and mistletoe printed paper. The lat
ter package is tied with a red tinsel
cord, the others with gummed ribbon.
Gummed ribbons in red, green, gold
and silver, also in several printed de
signs, three-eighths inch wide, in rolls
fifteen and twenty yards long, and
cost usually 10 cents a roll. The paper
is strongly gummed and sticks quick
ly and fast. Pretty Christmas seals,
"Do not open," and address labels,
tags and cards are also not only dec
orative, but very necissary adjuncts
to the Christmas package.
There is an old saying that beauty
is only skin deep, but that is far from
the truth. Beauty is founded on good
health without that there is no real
beauty. You can cover up a muddy
or sallow complexion with face pow
der, but it will not be beautiful. A
homely woman in good health is
usually more interesting and charm
ing than a bilious dyspeptic beauty.
Constipation and a sluggish liver im
pair good looks. If you are troubled
in this way take Chamberlain's Tab
lets and you will soon be looking
better and feeling better.

Municipal Court for South Side
on Program for Civic
WOULD COST BUT LITTLE
A municipal court for the South
Side is the announced issue that the
local Civic association will make a
campaign for in their "drive" for im
provements. Judge Breen, secretary
of the club, filed a petition with the
city council Friday with this purpose
in view. The statutes require three
such courts in Greater Omaha and in
the petition it is cited that it would
be only just to have one in this part
of the city.
"There would be no expense con
nected with the court," said Judge
Breen yesterday in speaking of the
issue. "There is plenty of room in the
local city hall and the judge's salary
would be forthcoming just the same.
It is a proposition of saving car fare
for the numbers of South Side people
who have to take time to go to Oma
ha to settle a petty dispute that should
require but a few minutes in a local
The petition recommends that the
local police court be authorized also
to decide cases that would come be
fore the municipal court.
The association is making definite
plans for the campaign for a new
Burlington depot. Since the purchase
by the railroad interests of a tract of
land in the vicinity of Leavenworth
street local representatives of the
association have been hot on the trail
of railroad officials, making strenuous
efforts to have their appeal recog
nized. To Attend Conventions.

From Salt Lake City the party will

where the men will attend the meeting
of the Wyoming Wool Growers' asso

ager A. F. Stryker of the Live Stock

this meeting. He will talk on the rela
tionship between the live stock ex

The return will be made to Salt
Lake City immediately after the close
of the Wyoming convention: The
American National Live Stock asso
ciation will convene there on January
18, 19 and 20. The windup of the trip

SAY LURID "MOVIES" DID IT
Bcnnic Bell, 16 years old, and Artie

Both boys were reticent to tell of
the affair. They have been pals for
many years and room together on
the South Side. One night the old
est of the two boys came home flour
ishing a revolver, his imagination run
ning riot as the result of attending
too many "wild west, shoot to kill"
movies, in the opinion of Gus Miller,
There was a strugle for possession
of the gun and Bell, although of
slighter build than Barnes, overpow
ered his pal, leaped upon the bed
and waved the weapon in the air.
Mr. Miller told Judge Leslie that
he believed young Bell yelled some
thing like "curse you, Luke Desmond,
one step further and I'll fill you full
of lead, ' nd pulled the trigger.
But the wounded boy came out of
the hospital just as much a believer
in the Damon and Pythias compact
as ever. So the judge, because the
boys were resolved to stick together
no matter if they did shoot each other
up occasionally, sentenced young
Bell to the state industrial school at
Kearney and then suspended the
sentence on condition that be rele
gate his shooting irons to the scrap,
heap and cut out lurid movies.
