Dolls for Children
Are Sold This Year
Little brother and his destructively
inquisitive hands are baffled this'
Christmas, insofar as little sister's
dollies are concerned, says Thomas
Redmond, general manager of Bur-gcss-Naslj
company. 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

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.
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."

most successful meetings ever held
in the valley and will be an annual

Lincoln, Dec. 21. (Special.) Ap
propriations for departments of the
state made by the last legislature
amounted to $2,541,427, according to
the report of State Auditor Smith,
filed with the governor, and appro

This covers a period of the bi

yet to go, as the biennium extends to
April 1, 1917. On these figures the
average expense bf the state for the
first twenty months of the biennium
was $355,525 per month. This would
indicate that there will'be a balance

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."

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."
"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:
