This year dolls made of papier niache, plaster of paris and other plastic substances are passe. Instead, nearly all dolls are made of wood and, in addition, in stead of being made in Europe, are made in America. On account of the war the supply of dolls was cut down greatly, and toy shops were compelled to seek elsewhere for substitutes. In chang ing from the old custom of import ing dolls the idea of wood 'was intro duced. Now the dolls it made en tirely of wood, and are better in every way than those of few years ago, besides being indestructible. Machinery is employed in molding the little wooden heads and bodies and then the faces are hand colored. Arms and legs arc so made as to be twistable into any position, and even the head and neck may be made to move. Some of the wooden dolls can open and close their eyes and a few are even equipped with a bellows at tachment, which, when squeezed, makes a pleasing imitation of. a cry ing infant. k According to Mr. Redrfond the wooden dolls are being sold in enor mous quantities. The youngsters like them better than the old kind, because of the mechanical perfection and parents like them because of their permanency. Besides dolls nearly all the other toys being sold this Christmas are made in America. Convicts' Plan for Xmas Break Failure; "Good Bys" Let Out - McAlestcr. Okl.. Dec. 21; Christ mas was a word of both sorrow and joy at the state penitentiary here to day. Discovery of an underground tunnel through which twenty-five convicts planned f to escape on Christmas eve thwarted the plans of these men for liberty during the holi days, while eighty-three good-conduct prisoners were released to go home on Christmas paroles and re prieves from Governors Robert L. Williams. Four men have been placed in soli tary confinement in connection with the attempted prison delivery. Western Union Boys At Turkey-Dinner Western Union messengers, rang ing in ages from 15 to 75 years, were guests last night of J. L. Ferciot, manager of the Omaha district, at a banquet held in the Young Men's Christian association'sTldme. Eighty live guests were there, all satisfying l heir appetites with a six-course din ner including turkey. Howard Stentz, "No. 34." was toast master and Superintendent C. B. Hor lon. Commercial Agent L. H. Kaigcr, Supervisor N. C. .Nelson. . Manager Ferciot and Probation Officer "Gus" Miller responded to toasts. Previous to the banquet the mes sengers, led by the High School band under the direction of Captain Dwight Chase, paraded the streets and sere naded The Rce office. The messengers were lords of all they surveyed in the"' banquet hall. A beckoning motion of their finger brought white-coated waiters and the boys were not slow to issue mandates to "garcon." Said the manager: "I have some of the best boys in Omaha and I'm proud of them." Gus Miller concurred in the statement. "Very few A. D. T. boys get into court." he added. "Yes," added Superintendent Hor ton. "and very few ever get into a doctor's office. They're the healthiest set in the world."

Advises "Don't Take George Too Seriously" Amsterdam (Via London), Dec. 21. The Cologne Gazette says: ''The language of the British prime minister must not be taken too seriously. We are taught this by some reflections on English peace conclusions in the past, such as that in which it lost the United States, and the peace of Amiens in 1802. There is a limit where the blindest obstinacy finds itself confronted with the impossible and this limit is be ing brought nearer and nearer by our submarines. Another possible con tingency compelling England to make peace would be the secession of one of her allies."

BOHEMIAN SOLDIERS FIGHT FOR FRANCE Charles Fergler Predict!) That His Country Will Stay With the Entente 'Allies, itial Roumanian successes were made possible only because the Czechs arc opposed to Austria. "No Bohemian political parly, not a single Czech individual of any con sequence has had a word lo say for Austria. All are against Austria to a man. "It is a war to hc knife and the knife to the hilt between Austria and the Bohemian nation." NO SYMPATHY FOR AUSTRIA "Bohemian citziens and soldiers are traitors to -vusttia-Hungary and they glory in the fact. Bohemian regi ments are fighting and will fight ef fectively for the entente allies until doom quakes the ancient regime of the Hapsburgs and gives to Bohem ians merited -autonomy." The foregoing is the substance of what Charles Pergler. Crisco. la., told an audience Wednesday night in the city council chamber. His au ditors frequently interrupted him as he told of the perfidy of Austria to Bohemian men. I j. Kutak', presi dent of the Bohemian National Alli ance in this district, introduced the orator as a "native Bohemian and a staunch American." Mr. Pergler was recently delegated to appear before the committee on foreign affairs in congress when Con gressman London first sounded his call for a meeting of neutral nations. He was also a delegate to the Con gress of Oppressed Nationalities, held under the auspices of the wom an's peace party. "Bohemian volunteers are fighting for France ever since Austria sent its unwarranted ultimatum to Serbia." said the speaker. "Bohemian officers and privates have fought with and are still in the army of Serbia. "The Bohemian-Slovak sharpshoot ers' regiment with the Russian army are among the best fighters in the czar's army and they volunteered for service after being captured. .Thanks to Bohemians. "The defection of Czech troops in Serbia and Galicia 'cxplans many an Austrian defeat. And in one of the recent military reports to the French staff we find the terse, but certainly expressive, statement: '"'Thanks lo the Bohemian com pany we were able to hold the vil lage and take 150 of the enemy as prisoners.' "Only recently a cablegram brought a report about a debate in the Hun garian Parliament and of charges againsr the Bohemian regiments made by Magyar nationalists, to the effect that these regiments are ab solutely unreliable and that the in- New Army of Million Men for England London, Dec. 21. The House of Commons today passed a resolution presented oy tne government tnat an additional number of land forces not exceeding 1,000.000 shall ho maintain, ed at home and abroad." , It was explained that no queslion of policy was involved, but that the colonial troops and forces of the crown exceed the 4,000.000 already au thorized and a vote was necessary in order to regularize the positio.i.
