Omaha Girls Help Red Cross.
Only one small organization of Red
Cross workers has been discovered in
the state of Nebraska. It is a group
of girls in Omaha High school, who
were the members of the old Brown
ing society. As soon as these girls
heard that- the Red Cross women of
America are being called to action
' they arranged for a called meeting
which will take place at Central High
school this afternoon after school.
These girls sent supplies of comfort
bags and bandages to the soldiers
who were called to the Mexican bor
der. Miss Dorothy Arter is president
of the club, and some of the other
members are Gladys ilickel, Ann Ax
tel, Camilla Edholm and Elizabeth
Austin. It is planned that at the meet
ing this afternoon resolutions will be
taken to send word to the national
organization at Washington offering
the services of the society for Red
Cross work.
Only one branch of the Red Cross
movement is organized in Nebraska.
This is the "movement for peace," or
the work for tubercular patients and
the selling of Red Cross seals. This
work was begun when a slight sur
plus existed in the national treasury.
It is a distinct branch and funds from
its treasury cannot be diverted into
other channels. Mrs. K. R. J. Edholm,
in charge of this movement in Ne
braska, has had her hands so full with
that work that she had been unable
to devote any time to the organization
of other Red Cross work. An appeal
was at one time made to the Daugh
ters of the American Revolution of the
state of Nebraska, as a patriotic or
ganization, to take up the work of the
Red Cross, but no action has yet been
taken. Mrs. C. H. Aull, state regent
of the D. A. R., stated this morning
that since the question is now so
imminent the society may soon take
action in the matter.
Members of the class in practical
nursing, which met at the Young Wo
men's Christian association over a
year ago, are wondering whether
their bit of knowledge will be of serv
ice to them in the near future. In the
event of war a number of the young
women feel they would be glad to
offer their services to their country.
Miss Alice Carter said, "I' want to use
my knowledge if there were a chance
to do it." Miss Elizabeth Bruce feels
that she has had little enough train
ing, but "if there were really war, I'd
want to do my share." "I should want
to give my services if they would be
of any benefit," said Miss Ruth La
tenser. The members of the war relief cir
cle, headed by Miss Stella Thummel,
are keeping on with their work of
rolling bandages as well as the cir
cles of matrons. Mrs. O. C. Redick,
who is in charge of the shipping of
supplies, decided that no stop would
be made, .for "when we can ship the
things the need will be even greater
for them. We may as well have a
good supply."
Entertain for House Guests.

Picketing the president, argued pro
and con, will decide whether many
Omaha suffragists will join forces
with the Congressional Union, which
hplds a luncheon-conference at the
Blackstone Wednesday, or remain
loyal to the National Woman Suffrage
association, with which they have
heretofore been affiliatted.
Picketing the president and heck
ling the solons at Washington are
doings of the Congressional Union
not countenanced by the national or
ganization, nor by many conserva
tive Omaha suffragists who confess to
leanings toward the more youthful
and fiery C. U's were it not for their
near-militant policies.
"We are criticized for picketing the
White House, but it was while our
pickets stood outside the president's
door, visualizing for him the plea of
the women of this country that he
do something for the federal suffrage
amendment that the president sent a
congratulatory message to Mrs. Car
rie Chapman Catt on the winning of
presidential suffrage in North Dakota,
something . he had never done be
fore," is the defense of Miss Mar
garet Whitteraore, Congressional
Union organizer, who came on to be'
chief speaker at Wednesday's meet
ing. Mrs. Elsie Vamdergrift Benedict
"suffrage regular" organizer who is
doing a week's work in Omaha pre
paratory to going out into the state,
refutes the construction placed on this
fact by Miss Whittemore.
"If the president sent the message
because of the impression made upon
him by Congressional Union picket
ers, why didn't he send his congratu
lations to Alice Paul, head of the Con
gressional Union picketers? Instead,
he sent the message to our president,
Mrs. Catt, as an expression of his
approval of our dignified, construc
tive efforts as opposed to methods of
a different sort used by the Congres
sional Union," she said.
Mrs. W. E. Barkley, state suffrage
president, who is in Omaha for a con
ference with local workers, refused to
comment on the proposed organiza
tion of the Congressional Union in
"We are entering on a new state
campaign now which will take all our
efforts and time. The Congressional
Union is an organization altogether
separate from the national associa
tion. Whatever it plans to do in Ne
braska is a matter of its own busi
ness, not ours."
Plans for beginning the state cam
paign were discussed at a meeting at
the Young Women's Christian asso
ciation this morning and at a lunch

Structure of Hair
"For what reason do we have hair on our
bodies? Do you tblnk that In time to come
Deople will be completely devoid of heir?
O. h. F."
The possession of hair by man is an
ancestral trait. 'The Pliocene, or at
all events Miocene, precursor of man
was a furred creature," so says an au
thority on this subpect. We have hair,
then, for the same reason that we are
coated with an epidermis; it is a part
of the anatomy that we have inher
ited from our animal forebears.
Hair is less imperatively useful to
man than it is to the animals most
nearly resembling him, such as the
anthropoid, or man-like, apes, and
those animals have more hair than
he has, but whether the earliest men
recognizable as men had notably
more hair on their bodies than we
have today is a question not easy to
Judging by the representation of
thehuman form found among the rel
ics of the men of the stone age, they
were not hairier than we ourselves
are. The oldest Egyptian mummies
reveal the presence of only normal
hirsute covering on the heads or bod
ies. They also show the same char
acteristics in the form and structure
of the hair that we remark at the
present time.
It is a very curious fact that hair
constitutes perhaps the most trust
worthy and invariable test of racial
purity that has been discovered.
Three principal types of human hair
are recognized. They are "woolly
hair," characteristic of nearly all the
black races, which is short, crispy,
black and elliptical in section, without
either pith or medullary tube;
"straight hair," characteristic of the
yellow races, which is long, coarse,
almost invariably black, round in sec
tion and having a distinct medullary
tube with pith; and "wavy hair,"
characteristic of European races,
which is smooth, soft, of various color,
generally more or less fair, oval in
section having a medullary tube with
out pith.
A fourth type, "frizzy hair," has
been noted as characteristic of the
Australian aborigines, Nubians and a
few other races. In the wavy, or
European, type the color varies from
black to very light, the blondness in
creasing in frequency toward the
northern latitudes.
The yellow races have the least
hair; the Australians, Tasmanians and
Ainus the most In the wavy-haired
races the women have much longer
hair than the men, but in both the
woolly and the straight types there
is virtually no difference of hair
length between the sexes. That some
highly interesting points in the evolu
tion of man are concealed in the yet
unwritten history of human hair is
shown by the fact that while the
present dwelling place of the anthro
poid apes corresponds with that of
the woolly-haired races of mankind,
those apes have hair of a type not at
all resembling the "wool" of the ne
groes, but much like that of the wavy
haired races, so that, as far as this
criterion goes, the European races
are closer to anthropoid apes than
are the negroes, while the yellow
races, in this respect, occupy an in
termediate position.
A mechanical explanation of the
progression from frizziness in the
black type through simple waviness
in the white, to straightness in the
yellow, is afforded by the difference
in the shape of the cross-section.
Frizzy or woolly hair is, roughly
speaking, flat in section, and that
shape enables it to curl closely, and
because of curling closely it is short;
wavy hair is oval in section, offering
some resistance to curling, but not
altogether preventing it, and the
length is medium; straight hair is
round in section, resisting curvature
equally in alt directions, and conse
quently it grows not only straight,
but very long.
Among the American Indians,
classed with the yellow races, exam
ples of hair nine feet long are said
to have been found. I know of no
explanation of the marked difference
between the length of the hair of men
and women in the white races. Civ
ilization would appear to have no in
fluence in this matter. Since the wall
paintings discovered in prehistoric
caves in Spain show the women with
hair longer than that of the men.
The same story seems to be told by
prehistoric carvings.
But while we have no evidence from
archaeoloanr that the hair of man has
been notably diminished in length or
quantity witnin Historic ages, never
theless there are other indications that
our remote ancestors were more hir
sute than we are. One of these is
found in the presence of pre-natal
hair, as well as of rudimentary hairs
covering nearly all parts of the hu
man body an almost irrefragable
proof that at one time in the past,
when perhaps the human type was
only in posse, and not yet in esse,
man's body was as furry as that of
the creatures with whose comfortable
pelts he now adorns and warms him-
selt in wintry weather.
High-Water Skirt
Ages Women
"What has become of the pretty
women this summer? Have they
gone off to the war as trained nurses,
or suddenly been smitten down by
age or fat or some other dire misfor
tune?" asked a man the other day.
"I don't mean girls," he continued;
"thank Heaven the feminine peach
crop never fails, and the sweet-and-twenties
are more beautiful, more al
luring and charming than ever, but
some blight seems to have fallen on
the women who were umpty-tumpty
years old, but who were still charming
to look, at, and good to talk to, and,
to a mature man, far more fascinating
than the whole brood of the imma
ture. But suddenly all of these women
have lost their good looks. They
seem to have taken on pounds and
pounds of avoirdupois. I hey look
dumpy and ungraceful, and they've
aged ten years. What's the matter
with them?"
"Skirts," I replied succinctly, "and
sport suits. Some malevolent enemy
of the middle-aged woman has made
short skirts and sport suits fashiona
ble, and women have fallen for them
to their everlasting undoing. Every
inch you take off the bottom of a
woman's skirt after she has passed
18 adds five years to her age, while
a sports hat is a searchlight of a mil
lion candle power turned upon every
wrinkle and crow's foot and sagging
muscle in her countenance.
"Never were the fashions so kind
to slim slips of young girls, and never
were they so brutal to women whose
beauty is beginning to wane and
whose belt measures are growing
"A long skirt grres a plump woman
an appearance of additional height A
short skirt cuts her off. That's the
reason that you notice that so many
ladies that you've never thought of as
being stout seem to have suddenly
qualified for the heavyweight class.
Also, a woman's skirts balance Jier,
and when you shear these off nearly
to the knees you make her look the
shape of a top, and a top thafs about
to topple over.
"Another thing that the short skirt
does is to reveal the cold, cruel truth
about women's ankles and feet. Not
even the most bitter misanthrope or
the gloomiest pessimist could have
had any idea that there were so many
knock-need and how er-er limbed
women in the world, or so many with
ankles like mile posts, or with feet
the size and shape of canvased hams.
"You cannot walk down the street
now and gaze upon the awful exhibi
tion of pedal monstrosities that are
displayed to the criical eye of man
without feeling like weeping at the
folly that has made woman cast aside
the fluffy ruffles, the rustling silk, the
lace and embroidery that obscured
and palliated her defects from the
world. . .
"Here again the fashion that is flat

in the middle-aged. It is one thing
for ninety-odd pounds to expose its
nimble heels, and another for a hun
dred and eighty to waddle along on
heels that creak and bend under its

to riotous youth, and any woman
over 25 who even looks at one does
so at her peril. You never can have
any idea of how tired you look, and

proves an alibi for her beauty, and it
is a barometer that gauges her intel
ligence, and she casts away all of
these advantages when she puts on a
snnrte hat that not onlv isn't any
longer, and shrieks aloud her lack of
judgment in her calling attention to
how differently she looks in one
from the way a young girl looks in it.
"That's why women appear to have
siiHHcnlv sued. You unconsciously
contrast them with their daughters
and heir granddaughters who have

"Another thing that middle-aged
women have failed to take into con
sideration when they have decked
themselves out in the juvenile array
of abbreviated skirts and sports hats
and coats, is the effect of what dra
matists call 'the element of surprise."
The way to make the most vivid im
pression on the human mind that it
is possible to make is by giving it a
sudden shock by presenting to it

woman does who dresses herself with
exceeding inappropriateness.
"We've all had this experience a
hundred times this summer. We
walk down the street behind a thin

yellow or green sports hat

"In reality the woman isn't 60, and
if she had been dressed in the digni

suited her years, and with a hat on

emphasizing them, we should never
have thought of her lost youth, or
her age at all, and would have passed
on with an impression of a pretty

Omaha Sewers Could Accom
modate, if Not Please, Hugo's
Famous Character.
By A. R. GROH.
The sewers of Omaha have a total
length of 318.4 miles.
They vary much in size and shape,
each being built to carry the greatest
amount of water and sewage that it
is ever likely to be required to carry.
The flight of Jean Valjean through
the sewers of Paris in "Les Miser
ables" surprises most of us because
we imagine sewers are just small pipes
two or three feet in diameter at most.
Some Omaha sewers are sixteen
feet in diameter. After heavy snows
you can see wagons dumping their
snow down a hole in the middle of
the street at Fourteenth and Jones.
If you look down the hole you will
see, forty feet below,, a swift-flowing
stream of water that carries off a
wagonload of snow or dirt in a jiffy.
' This is only one small branch of the
great many-branched stream that is
owing from every house an.' every
corner in Omaha, carrying the city's
waste into the Missouri river.
The Omaha sewers empty into the
river through fifteen outlets. One of
the largest of these is at the foot of
Webster street. It is semi-circular in
shape, sixteen feet across the top and
seven and a half feet high. It is built
of brick with "I" beam and arched
brick top. Through the Union Pa
cific shop grounds it is reinforced con
crete. From there it is twelve feet in
diameter to Fourteenth and Webster
streets. And from there branches run
north a nd west.
It is so with all the sewers. They
are, naturally, largest at the. river and
they have branches reaching to vari
ous sections of the city and these
branches if their turn have sub
branches. I
Some Down Deep.
At some places they lie very deep
under the street. On the South Side
a branch of the Mud Creek system
runs through a 2,000-foot tunnel from
Seventeenth and Monroe streets to
the east side of the Burlington tracks.
At Thirteenth and Monroe streets
this sewer is 130 feet under the street.

The old sewers were usually round
or oval. The modern are usually
semi-circular with flat top.
The big one recently built through '
Miller park and Minne Lusa addition
is of this type. Through Minne Lusa
addition it is eleven feet three inches
high and seventeen feet wide at the
top. Built of reinforced concrete, the
top of this sewer, with an asphalts:
covering, will form the roadway of
the boulevard. .
The curbs are moulded right in with
this top and the catch basins are1
set in.
City Engineer Bruce gives the cost
of constructing the 318.4 miles of
Omaha sewers as $4,487703. Last
year 21.2 miles of sewers were built
at a cost of about $400,000. This was
nearly twice as much sewer as was
built in any of the ten years preced
ing last year. , i
In 1906 the sewer mileage was 15&8.
In other words, the mileage of sew
ers has exactly doubled in the last
ten years. ! .
