Polly, the Shopper,
By Clever Buying
Out-of-town people are recognizing
what a boon the professional shopper
is. "Polly," on the staff of The Bee,
whose chatty notes on what is new
in the stores and about town appear
in each Sunday society section, has
been busy taking care of the needs of
women out in the state and Iowa
who were unable to come to Omaha
themselves to take advantage of the
January clearance sales. i
some ladies are in a hurry a dress
maker engaged for the next day and
the trimming or buttons for the new
frock cannot be found in the small
city in which they reside so they
telephone rolly the description of
the material required and she hastens
to one of the stores and has it sent
out on the first mail via parcel post.
Women are. grateful, too, for this
quick service. A lady residing' in the
central part of the state writes: "My
Dear roily: lhat was, Special de
livery with a capital to every letter,
and I thank you a thousand times.
If vou wish any recommendations vou
know where to' get them and now I
have another request to make, etc.
By the way, this lady has written sev
eral times and the shopping for her
has been particularly interesting, as in
each instance the requests have been
for such beautiful, things.
rrom a near-by' town a letter came
enclosing a sample of silk which was
to be matched in crepe de chine or
taffeta for a Russian blouse to wear
with a suit. Some samples were im
mediately sent and the next day this
little note came: "Am pleased with
sample you sent me today. You may
send me three yards of the silk.
Thanking you for your prompt serv
ice." It was such a pleasure to select
for a tiny tad his very first suit of
clothes. The mother wrote: "We re
ceived the suit from (naming firm
from which the purchase was made)
and it just fits him fine. He is quite
proud of his first suit. We thank you
very much, and will surely write you
again if in need of anythirlg."
Don t torget this shopping service
is free of charge to our readers, and
Polly will be glad to help you with
your wants, whether it is a spool of
thread or a piano.
If you live in Omaha and are at a
loss to know where a certain thing
can be found you may call her by
telephone at The Bee office Tyler
1000 and she may be able to,help you
with her advice.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PBOVIHlONtf.
Speculators Slock to Buying Side And Wheat
Chicago, Jan. 6. Emperor William's
message to his troops that the war would
continue, acted as one of the many ele
ments today, that forced a sharp advance
In the price of wheat. After an extreme
rise of 6 4 the market reacted, but closed
strong, 2 to 44 net higher; with May at
$1,844 to $1,864. snd July, $1,514 to
$1,614. Other staples, too, scored substan
tial galne corn, 14 to 14; oats, 1 to 14,
and provisions, 12c to 32c.
Right from the beginning the market dis
played notable strength. Besides the bel
ligerent announcement from the German
emperor, the course of the senate In deal
ing with President WUnon's appeal to the
European combatants appeared to have had
special effect toward changing sentiment
In favor of the bull side of the market
leaders in yesterday's netting became con
spicuous buyers and the -scarcity of offer
ings was so pronounced that the advance In
values mot no material opposition until In
the last hour profit taking and weakened
evening up of trades caused a sag.
Enthusiasm of wheat buyers rented to a
considerable extent on advices that the
number of vessels at the Gulf of Mexico
ports was ample. Much attention also was
given to statements that domestic stocks
outside of the commercial visible supply
were rapidly disappearing and that the
decrease was likely in the visible supply
total on Monday.
Corn ascended to $1 a bushel, May, de
livery, the highest price since 1892 and
with that exception the topmost level In
forty years. Active European buying of
futures seemed to be largely responsible,
Oats shared the strength of other cereals.
Liberal purchasing tor the seaboard helped
to lift the market.
'Advancing quotations on hogs and grain
caused free buying of provisions. Notice was
taken also of the fact that western re
ceipts of hogs for the week totalled only
607,000, as against 878,000 a year ago.

Hogs It was about the same story as
yesterday In the hog trade thla morning,
though tbe advance was not quite so large.
Shippers had big orders and again took a
Jtood percentage of the offerings, paying
prices that were ell the way from a nickel
to I60 higher, and In extreme oases even
mors than that.
Packers followed the shipper lead and
filled their more urgent orders at prices
that were around a dime higher. The mar
ket was about the most uneven of the week,
for while the average was about 10c higher
there were Individual sales all the way from
not muetf more than steady to 16020c
higher. Most of the offerings moved at a
spread of $16.00010.40 and tops reached
$10.60. Vetoes are 3O04Oo higher than a
week ago and the highest on record for
January. In fact, prices are getting to
within striking distance 'of the record fig
ures hung up last September, whan tops
reached $11.10 and the average went as high
as $10.70. Shipping demand has been tbe
big factor In this week's advance and con
sequently good butcher weights and heavies
show, if anything, the moat edvanoe, though
all gradea have moved up sharply.

Sheep Receipts of sheep and lambs here
this week were very liberal, especially so
when It Is remembered that there was little
here Monday. Lambs, which closed last
week at the highest prices ever paid, held
about steady on Monday's small run, but
Tuesday, on the largest supply here In a
montn. nroKe around lbc. the trade tnat
day closing a quarter or more lower, par
ticularly on some strong weight lambs.
Wednesday, while receipts were smaller,
packers took off another Alme, heavy lambs
again being slow at the decline. Thurs
day tho market braced up, lambs selling
steady to 10c higher, though the market
was anything hut active, Friday's trade was
no more than fully steady, and closing prices
are largely 10016c below a week ago. Bulk
of the decent to choice fed western lambs
is selling at 118.00013.36, and the top of
$13.36, paid Thursday for high dressing

French Front Will
Omarla is to receive a visit from
Lieutenant Zinovi Pechkoff of the
French Foreign Legion, who will be
here January 19 and 2o.
This young man is an adopted son
of the Russian novelist, Maxim
Gorky. He was in Italy at the time
of the putbreak of the war engaged
in literary work. Finding it impos
sible to go to Russia he enlisted as
a private in the French Foreign Le
gion and since then he says he owes
his life to the American ambulance.
He comes to Omaha bringing a mes
sage of gratitude from the French
government, as well as a personal
one, for he tells of the service to
humanity which is being done by the
Americans in maintaining the Ameri
can hospital work in France.
The war relief societies which have
been at work for some time in Oma
ha in making supplies, will present
Lieutenant Pechkoff at an afternoon
meeting at a place and time to be an
nounced later. There will be no ad
mission nor collection taken at the
meeting, the object being entirely to
put before the people of the United
States the great work being done by
the Americans for humanity.
Omahans here heard directly of the
wonderful hospital work in France,
which is caring for 1,000 patients
daily, from the letters of Omaha
young men who are serving and have
served in the work for this hospital.
Carr Ringwalf, son of Mr. and Mrs.
lohn R. Rintrwalt. is now driving an
ambulance for this hospital. Victor
Caldwell served in this same work
for several .months and Montague
Tancock will be remembered for his
ambulance work in Serbia.
Lieutenant Pechkoff has already ac
cepted an invitation from the Omaha
club to be the guest of honor at the
annual dinner and will be a guest at
dinner at the University club Friday
evening, January iv.
Merchants National Says
It Did Not Lose on Defrani
Officials of the Merchants National
bank have announced that they are
in no way interested in the case of
Joseph Defrani, alias Lucas, who
passed through Omaha Thursday
night in the custody of detectives, on
his way to Detroit where he is wanted
for check frauds.
Published reports said that the local
bank had been defrauded of $1,800
by Defrani, but officials of the bank
assert that Defratii's business with
them was entirely satisfactory.
This limits the losses in Omaha,
due to Defrani's operations to those
suffered by the Omaha National and
first National banks.

Foreign affairs evoked little Interest aside
from the announcement of another large

government. Becurrent rumors of the can

denied. Exchange on Londsn waa firm, but

Kane Gets Hair Cut, But
Not the Regulation Kind
Is there any one in Omaha who
will give employment to a trusting
country youth, aged 17 years, who
came to Omaha yesterday and fell
among practical jokers, with the at
tending result that he is now with
out eye-brows and wearing a haircut
that looks like a nobby-tread auto
Charles Kane, Glenn, Colo., aged
17 years, walked to Omaha, and ap
plied for food at a pool hall and bar
ber shop. He was given food and a
chance to pay for it by working.
While at his task, a man who jibed
him about the length and unkempt
ness of his hair, persuaded him into
submitting to a haircut. '
The joker cut off Kane's eye brows
and ran a pair of clippers criss-cross
about his head.
"Now you've got the latest style,
non-skid haircut. . You won't need
chains on your skull now to keep
your brain from slipping," the joker
The boy cried when he saw himself
in a mirror. He knew it would be
an impossibility to find a job until
his hair grew out again. '
Juvenile 'Officer Miller arrested
Jack Lynch, a carpenter, on a charge
of malicious mischief, when the boy
identified him as the man who, under
the pretext of being a barber, offered
to give him a free hair cut.
