Nothing On Withdrawal.
War department officials continue
to withhold comment on reports that
tne movement ot uenerai rersnmgs
regulars out of Mexico soon will be
under' way and the statement an
nouncing the Guardsmen are desig

'these orders with the withdrawal

return of the expedition in Mexico

would be sent home.

The department's statement said:
"General Funston has selected these
organizations chiefly in accordance
with the rule of returning first those
longest in service on the border. To
some extent, however, this rule could
not be followed without unequal
weakening of the border guard and

MANY OMAHAMS DO
One Act of Charity Qualifies
for Membership in Society
' of Modest Samaritans.
WHAT ONE WOMAN DID
By A. R. GROH.
The Omaha Society for the Con
cealment of Good Deeds. There isn't
any such society, but it seems we arc
always running across people here
who would be qualified to belong to
It, people who "do good by stealth
and blush to find it fame."
A little girl came to a Sunday school
in the north part of the city recently
without air overcoat or mittens. The
day was bitter cold and the sight of
the child wrung the heart of her
teacher, Mrs. R.
She learned that the' girl s mother
is a widow and has four children.
When lshe arrived home Mrs. R.
couldn't eat her dinner for thinking
of the widow and her children.
She called up several friends on the
telephone and within a few minutes
had promises of some warm clothing
for the children. Next day, when the
clothing came, she set to work re
pairing it. She put new velvet cuffs
and collar on the little coat and there
was a nice-muff and several pairs of
mittens and some shoes almost as
good as new and other things.
Down to the home of the widow
went Mrs. R. and another woman with
the clothes. "'The widow wept at the
sight of so much goodness and hu
man kindness while her children
danced with joy as they put on their
coats and mittens. -'
The widow s husband had formerly
been a prominent commission man.
He had been taken sick and all the
family savings had been used up in
caring for him and in making a trip
to Florida, where he died.
Then the widow and her brood re
turned to Omaha, where they took a
dilapidated little cottage. They rented
out threV rooms, which gave them
enough to pay the rent of 'he whole
house. The widow had been earning
about $4 a week and last summer the
oldest girl (who had attended a board
ing school before their misfortune)
worked in a bakery. .
Mrs. R. and the other woman
emptied their pocketbooks, leaving $6
in the widow's hands.
Kind Commission Men.
W1K" she came home Mrs. R. called
up a prominent commission man
whom slle knows on the South Side
and asked him whether he rememU
bered the widow s husband.
"Why, I should say I do," he ex
claimed,., "And do you, mean to tell
me that his family has come to such
strait!- .My, my, I must sec what we
can do for them." ,
The commission man took tip a col
lection among his fellow commission
men. It amounted to $112. He got
a bank Check for' this because he is
too modest to sign his own name to
When Mrs. R. called a few days
later the widow showed her a check
"I just can't imagine where it came
from," she said. "Why, this will help
us out fine so that we will get through
the winter without any trouble."
Mrs. R. knew where it came from,
but she didn't tell. For those com
mission men at the stock yards are
so busy that they haven't time to re
ceive the thanks of widows and or
phans. All they've got time for is to
Shot to Death; His

Northwestern railroad, was found
shot to death early yesterday in
the railroad yards at the foot of Cum
When found he was clutching his
flashlight, which was still burning, the
death pressure of his stiffened fingers
serving to hold down the push button.
His pistol was gone from his hol
ster, and so was his pocketbook.
The bullet that ended his life was
fired apparently from a range far
enough away to prevent his being
powder burned. It struck him
squarely in the the mouth. From the
position he was found in, apparently
he went to his death calmly. A cigar
which he was smoking was still
clutched firmly between his teeth.
Paul O'Leary, messenger boy with
the watchman, said the officer had just
arrested three men charged with
robbing a car. One of them shot the
officer. All three then

and that in northern Nebraska, port
ions of Iowa, Minesota and the Da

Here the snow that fell Saturday
night, was held down by a heavy coafe
ot sieet tnat tell early Sunday morn
ing. This sleet was a full half-inch
in thickness and made streets and
sidewalks one sheet of ice.
All Sunday the light snowfall was
driven along, by a high wind, but
here there was not enough of the
snow so that it drifted and impeded
travel to any extent. During the day
the mercury ranged around 10 to 20
degrees above zero, but in the early
evening it commenced to drop and by
9 o'clock was down close to zero.
.Trains Running Late.
In Union Pacific-territory the storm
was not so severe as farther north.
There were flurries of snow during
the day, but not enough to drift badly.
The wind was high and during the
afternoon, all the way from Omaha
through to Odgden the temperature
commenced to fall. Last night, be
low zero was reported all the way
from Fermont to Cheyenne and be
Trains operating into Omaha were

Fear For Stock.
While no reports were received last
night from the range country, fears
were expressed that there might be
considerable stock loss on account of
the heavy fall of snow and the known
shortage of feed. However, one
thing favoring that section was the
fact ,Vhat the sleetstonn did not ex
tend that far to the west and north
west. Advices were to the effect that
the sleetstorm did not extent to ex

from the river. Beyond that it was
snow that fell a greater portion of

Reports to the railroads last night
indicated that there was little fear
of the blizzard striking this section.
It appeared working east, its south
line extending through South Dakota
and southern Minnesota.
Zero Weather Coming.
The cold wave flag was hoisted on
the Federal building yesterday after
noon. Zero weather this morning was the
prediction of the local weather office
with severe cold tonight.
The sleet storm that followed the
snow Saturday night, advices indicate,
pretty well covered the state. It was
anywhere from a quarter to an inch

Salem, Ore., Jan. 21. Salem, Mass, hat refused to change its name
at the request ot Salem, Ore. Today negative answer was received
from Henry P. Benson, mayor of the New England city, to the request
for the change sent recently by Ivan G. McDaniel, manager of the Com

"I have heard of Salem, Ore.,1 read the answer, "When your little

the same class as small eastern cities, in short, when it reaches the size
your manager's nerve has already reported, we will advise him to change

change her name, even at the beheati of an enterprising and hustling

BUILD RIGHT LIFE,
IS WORD TO 'GRADS'
Rev. Titus Lowe, to Com
merce High Class, Tells What
1 Their Aims Should Be.
MUST PRESS ON AND UP
Easily-attained ambitions are will 'o
the wisps; youth's dream are usually
mirages, and the real business of the
young man or woman, is not to make
a fortune, keep out of the poor house
or gain a name, but to build a life,
Rev. Titus Lowe, pastor of the First
Methodist church, told members of
the mid-year graduating class of the
Omaha High School of Commerce
when he preached the baccalaureate
sermon yesterday morning.
Rev. Mr. Lowe advised the young
people to emulate the Apostle, Paul,
and keep the upgrade by pressing on.
They could not do better, he said,
then to hold toward life the everlast
ing, winning attitude of Paul.
Should Prefer the Home.
The Methodist pastor took a rap
at women who seek careers, asserting
that, though he had no intention of
criticizing the type with bobbed hair,
skirts cut "not just right," whatever
way that is, he was glad that God
didn't make many of them. Most
women should and do prefer the home
Lcareer, he averred.
Rev. Mr. Lowe warned the gradu
ates of what he termed "moral pit
falls." The average young person, he
asserted, does not know of the long
reach of evil and its all powering grip.
"It is absolutely suicidal when young
people, let one hour of passion over
turn a whole life's building, of moral
character. You will never find real
joy in the heart of the manw ho turns
his back on the ten commandments."
The practice of complimenting
young people too much when they
start out in the world and achieve
their first successes was deplored by
Rev. Mr. Lowe.
One Dangerous Thing.
"It is a dangerous tiling to say to
young people that they're getting
along fiiw," he declared. "Don't make
them think that they've reached their
goals early in life. They should keep
striving and pressing on like Paul.
Life has little time for cowards and
Rev. Mr. Lowe expressed a hope
that a new generation will grow up
in the United States "that will make
impossible at Washington pork bar
rels and log-rollings. He asserted
that he was strong believer in the ef
ficiency of old age.

ARTIST IDS HER:
LIFE BYOWN HAND
Young Woman Refuses to Be
Argued Out of Intention
SHOOTS SELF IN TEMPLE
San Francisco, Jan. 21. Miss Betty
De Jong, a prominent member of the
San Francisco art colony and a
painter' of international reputation,
Mied early today from a self-inflicted
bullet wound in the head. The police
said today they had virtually complet
ed their investigation of the case and
examination of Dr. William S. Porter,
a well known physician of Oakland,
who was in Miss I)e Jong's studio
when she shot hersflf. . After several
hours of questioning he was permitted
late last night to go to his home.
An autopsy was performed today,
revealing, the police said, no new
facts. An inquest will be held in a
Dr. Porter told the police that his
relations with the young woman were
nothing more than those of two per
sons mutually interested in art. He
is president of the Alameda County
Art association. He met Xfiss De
Jong, he said, last year during the
Panama-Pacific exposition, at which
she had several exhibits.
About three months ago, according
to .Dr. Porter, he began sitting for a
portrait by Miss Dc Jong. He said
lie was to have had a sitting yester
day afternoon, but was unable to ktep
the engagement and called at the
studio to so inform the artist. Miss
De Jong, he said, asked him to re
turn before going home. This he did
shortly after 6 o'clock. Almost im
mediately after his arrival, the physi
cian declares, Miss De Jong began
discussing suicide, all the while hold
ing a small revolver. For three hours,
the physician said, he tried to per
suade the young woman not to think
of such a thing and endeavored to
have her fix her mind on her art and
future. Finally when he was about to
leave, he said, Miss Dc Jong shot her
self in the temple.
John McAllister Killed
When Struck by Cleaver
John McAllister, Spirit Lake, la.,
working on the ice for the Cudahy
Packing company at Seymour lake,
was instantly killed Sunday morning
when he was struck by a cleaver and
his head split in two.
