Parliamentary Rules in Society.
"Madam Hostess, please may 1
have the floor?"
The foregoing parliamentary re
quest came yesterday, not at a suf
frage meeting, bnt at a social function,
a luncheon which Mrs. Edward L.
Burke gave at the Blackstone in
honor of Mrs. W. E. Barkley of Lin
coln, state suffrage president, and Mrs.
Elsie Vandergrift Benedict, suffrage
organizer who is working in Omaha.
Even the most exclusive society
affairs are taking on the nature of
strictly suffrage salons, so vital has
the topic grown on account of the
entering wedge looked for as a result
of the Congressional Union confer
ence tomorrow.
The proprieties of social etiquette
go unnoticed, so heated does the ar
gument wax. After trying desperately
to "get a word in edgwise" at the
luncheon yesterday, one of the guests
. raised her hand and also her voice
to petition the hostess that she might
be heard.
"Of course the guests had alt come
from an important conference which
occupied the whole morning and they
had much to discuss, especially with
two such interesting honor guests.
But it was very funny," commented
one of the others.
Mrs. S. A. Capen, formerly presi
dent of the Omaha Suffrage associa
tion, arrives today from Sioux City,
having come on to attend the Con
gressional Union conference. She will
be with her mother, Mrs. C. S. Hart
wick.. Women from all the suffrage
camps expect to attend in unofficial
capacities to enjoy the discussion and
exchange of views.
Guests at "HtWde."
Mrs. William W. Farish of Mont
clair, N. J., and her two daughters,
Miss Arraette and Miss Florence Far
ish, who made their debut in Decem
ber, arrived last evening from St.
Joseph to be the guests for a few
days of Mra. Henry W. Yates, who is
the aunt of Mrs. Farish. Mrs. Yates
and her daughters, Mrs. Reba Mor-
san and Mrs. George Voss, gave a
smalt tea at "Hillside," asking a few
friends to meet Mrs. Farish.
The Misses Farish will receive
much social attention tomorrow. Miss
Daphne Peters will give a luncheon
at the Fonteuelle for them, Mrs. A. L.
Reed will girt s small tea at the hotel
and Mrs. George Voss and Mr. Henry
W. Yates, jr., will entertain at an
Orpheum party, followed by supper
at the t-onteneiie.

Steamed Puddingt
In these days when the mercury is
just as apt to jump below the zero
line as above it, we naturally want
hot foods straight through a meal
and we enjoy desserts of the "hearty"
type. It is easy to understand why
a hot dessert should be desired; there
is an equally good reason for desir
ing a heavy dessert. In cold weather
we not only conserve our body heat
by extra clothing, but we also must
manufacture more heat within the
body. For this extra heat additional
fuel is needed in the shape of food,
either larger quantities, or richer
kinds, or both.
The steamed pudding is the modern
form of the old English puddings of
grains, fruits and suet, boiled together
in a bag. Such a pudding was very
apt to be soggy; our modern pudding,
placed in a metal can, and then
steamed or set in boiling water,
need not be soggy in the least. Neith
er need it be very ex
pensive, although the very rich fruity
kinds are necessarily so. The sim
pler kinds can be very good with their
spices, and some fruit; at the same
time they are more economical and
more digestible. At its best, how
ever, a steam pudding is not an easily
digested dessert, and should not be
given to people who most be careful
of their diet, or to little children. It
should never be served at a meal
where the main course has been espe
cially rich, such as goose or pork.
Instead of special molds, empty
baking powder, cocoa or coffee cans
may be used. As a matter of conveni
ence, a steamed podddrog may be
made ahead of time and reheated in
its original mold, over hot water, just
before serving.

Potatoes Cost More Since
Paris Green Doubles in Price
In the world of potato bugs the
high cost of living has no terrors.
No, in this peculiar realm the high
cost of dying is the leading topic for
scare heads in the Bugdom Gazette.
It is a subject for exultation rather
than the topic of a grievance.
Fact is paris green will cost about
twice as much this year as it did a
few years ago. Patriarchial spud
bugs adjust their specks of an even
ing and read these quotations from
the market page of the Bugdom Ga
zette. Paris green has been retailing up tr
a few years ago for SO cents a pound
carton. This year it will probably
cost anywhere between 90 cents and
$1 a carton, for the price to the dealer
has more than doubled in three years.
Dealers used to pay W2 cents per
pound carton for this commodity.
Today they are paying 40)4 cents.
Of course, if they buy it in carload
lots, or in lots of 10,000 pounds, they
get it cheaper.
Thus, while potatoes have more
than doubled in price, paris green,
the standard savior of the potato
crop, has gone up likewise.
Mrs. William F. Baxter, who is now
in New York with Mr. Baxter, has
closed arrangements with Enos Mills,
the great naturalist, for him to come
to Omaha February 26 to make an
introductory talk before a showing
of the Audubon . society's slides.
These are a complete set of bird pic
tures compiled by Louis Agassiz
Fuertes, official photographer for the
National Geographical society. The
local Audubon society claims the dis
tinction of being the only society
owning a complete set. '
Enos Mills has many friends in
Omaha, chief among them is C. N.
Dietx, whom he has visited several
Mrs. Baxter visited national Au.
dubon Society headquarters to get
suggestions for next year's work.
Court House Man
With Big Smile is
Fair, Fat and Forty
Surfing upon his forty-first mile
stone Clyde C. Sundblad, clerk of the
county court, has the distinction of
being the oldest court houser in point
of service, with the exception of
County Clerk Dewey. For Mr. Sund
blad was fair, fairly fat and AO Tues
day. He celebrated his birthday by
passing out the smokes to a host of
congratulating friends.
The jovial clerk of the county court
as a youth dreamed that he would
some day be a packing house mag
nate. Acting upon this hunch he went
to work in the office of one of the lo
cal establishments. But fate decreed
otherwise, and when he was but 22
years old Sundbtad, the youth, found
himself probating wills, holding the
whip over the marriage license clerk
and kidding the good-looking girls
in the court house.
He was appointed by Judge Vin
sonhaler and has served under Judge
Leslie and Judge Crawford also. His
friends point to him as the original
of the man with the "smile that can't
come off.
