Pacific School Plants Ameri
canism in Pupils Who
Speak Ten Languages.
VERY FEW ARE BASHFUL
By A. R. CROH.
Down .it the Pacific school, Twelfth
and Pacific, I heard kindergarten chil
dren, yesterday, talking fluent Italian,
Syrian and Hungarian.
I heard others, a little larger, talk
ing Austrian, Roumanian, Russian
Jewish, German and Danish.
This is certainly a "school of lan
guages," isn't it?
Miss Campbell, the principal, took
me aroum. to the ditlerent rooms.
Black hair and black eyes are the
predominating colors. More than
half of the pupils are of Italian,
Syrian, Roumanian or Armenian
Here is the kindergarten where
Miss Houtelle presides over three
dozen dark-eyed, chubby tots seated
around tables on little chairs.
They sing me the "Good Morning"
song, and then Sebastiana Tutori, a
little girl in a blue dress, is intro
duced. She speaks Italian. Mikie
Lehotyak is next. He makes a few
remarks in Austrian. And tlwn Eddie
Mehan, a Syrian with an adopted
name, toddles over from the far cor
ner of the room in his long, blue
overalls to say "Good morning" in
In Miss Wilbur's room, tin "First
A," e meet suspendered Salvatore
Salerno. Him Miss Campbell asks to
say "good morning" in Italian.
"Good morning in Italian," says
the blushing Salvatore obligingly.
Sebastiano Bonnito is then called
and Altio Viconti, and Mary, and
wears earrings, a bracelet and two
rings, and Larmela, with beads
around her dark throat. The soft
Italian word,', fly fast as '.his juvenile
congress gives a demonstration of the
In Miss Sheahan's room, the "Sec
ond B," Elias Babior com-s forward
and says, "Give me some bread and
butter" in Jewish. Maty Lehotyak
blushingly pronounces what sounds
like "V'ora gelt," which she explains
is Uond morning in Hungarian.
Mary Palupa obliges with some con
versation in Bohemian and Sophia
r.nas speaks Syrian tor us.
Syrians Not Sby.
In Miss Prrfchard's room the call
for Syrians brings eight youngsters
to their fees An irrepressible one
on the rear seat hurries up the aisle.

Sam Marcu-: qualifies ,s a fluent
master f the Roumanian tongue,
Marry sidman ot the Jewish and Ella
Paulsen ant1 Ruth Hale of the Danish.
Ruth, asked to tell how old she is in
Danish, blushingly explains that "it
sounds funny," but finally pronounces
the words and takes her seat amid de
lighted giggles from the others.
Another youth, disappointed oer-
haps at being master of no tongue
but English, solemnly announces,
"My mother': an Irishman and my
father's a German. I don't know
what I am."
There are also several colored chil
dren. Theodore Davis occupies a
prominent seat in one room right in
front of teacher's desk. Theodore is
a bright and studious and solemn
youth, and has attained to the envia
ble position of "teacher's helper."
Grand Jury is Closing
Its Probe of Omaha's Vice
The grand jury is believed to be
nearing the end of its program. Rumor
has it that the star chamber body
which has been in session for the
last couple of weeks, keeping large
number of a certain class of none too
law-abiding citizens on the anxious
seat, has about run out of material
to work on.
There have been investigations and
investigations, and indictments and in
dictments, and now, 'tis said, the six
teen mysterious closed-door jurors are
sighing for new worlds to conquer.
A late indictment was that of Wil
liam Washington, arrested by the
police while he was on parole from
Vhe state penitentiary.
Washington served seven and a half
years of a fifteen-year sentence on a
murder charge. The grand jury has
indicted him for forgery.
The principal grand jury probe
Thursday morning was into the facts

Children's Coughs and Colds.
For many years Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has been a favorite
with mothers for their children. That
it has well merited the esteem in
which it is held is shown by the fol
lowing extract from a letter to the
manufacturers by Mrs. T. H. Still,
Charleston, III. "Last winter our lit
tle boy 2 years of age had a severe
cold that settled on his lungs and we
were greatly worried over his condi
tion. He had a very persistent cough
that hung onto him despite all the
treatment we gave him, until I got
him a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. This preparation relieved
him almost immediately and two bot
tles of it cured him. "-Advertisement.

Muddy Missouri Flows Over the
Land Which Fijjures in
Brisk Seal Estate Deals.
0. C. WYES SELLS NINETEEN
Omaha is some real estate city; at
least it has just claim for recognition
among the boomiest municipalities in
the world when public records show
that land is seemingly at such a
premium that ambitious and soil-
seeking investors let loose of their
cash and "other valuable considera
tions" for lots underneath the swir
ling waters of the muddy Missouri
Recent real estate transactions
recorded in the office of the countv
register of deeds evidence the fact
that Missouri river lots are enjoying
the briskest trade in their history.
Notwithstanding the fact that to get
to the lots a "prospect" would have
to be taken there in a rowhoat, launch
or some other craft, the filings in the
registers of deeds office indicate that
purchasers are not lacking.
They're On Map.
Some of the lots may be sandbars
and some may be on the bottom of
the stream, but in reality they are
all in the Missouri river and have been
for many years, ever since the Big
Muddy on one of its erratic ram-
fiagcs changed ita channel. These
ots would be the last parcels of
land in the world to require irriga
tion. These lots, in the south part of
town and originally a part of Grand
view addition, are shown in the litho
graph maps of Poppleton and Byers
additions of 1857. True enough, they
were honest-to-goodneas, high and
dry lots at one time, being such in
1878, when the late N. P. Dodge, sr.,
transferred them to Miss Annie
Dodge, his niece, daughter of the
late General Grenville Dodge of
But the changeable Missouri long
since has cut into that part of Grand
view addition and now the dirty
waters of the famous stream eddy and
swirl over what once bid fair to be
come a residence district, or per
chance, fashionable suburb. Its only
chance now ia to become a "watering
place," and from the general outlook
"fashionable'' wouldn't fitly describe
Jack Johnson Buys One.
One of the recent transactions, as
shown by deeds filed in the registrar's
office, was twenty-eight lots from An
nie Dodge to John A. Johnson of the
South Side. The deed was recorded
February 2, 1917.
The records show that C C. Wyer
transferred four lots in this somewhat
damp neighborhood to Ida M. West
on January 26, 1917, the lots being
transferred back gain on February 6.
The Wests the husband being C W.
West, who was fined and later sen
tenced to jail in the federal court wild
horse case are said to have traded a
fairly valuable chicken ranch in the
south for the "estate" in the Missouri
Martin Quick transferred twenty
two lots to John Weber last March.
The deed shows a consideration of
$400, but Weber told employes in the
registrars ottice tnat ne traaea a
house and lot and gave a $1,600 mort
gage as his part of the transaction.
Many More Buyers.
Some of the recent deals in choice
Missouri river lots, as recorded in the
Douglas county register of deeds of

Advertising circulars, calling atten

Dr. Mullin Has Good Money
Which He Can't Give Away
Money that he can't give awav is
in the possession of Dr. T. R. Mul
lin. 205 Brown block. He is anxious
to part with it and has advertised the
fact that he has it. But nobody seems
to want it.
Dr. Mullin saw a girl drop her
purse on Sixteenth street. He has
tened to pick it up. When he had the
purse he couldn't find the girl, who
had disappeared into some store. The
purse contains what was probably
her week's wages and she can get
the money by merely telling how
much she lost and what sort of purse.
Persistence is the cardinal virtue in
advertising; no matter how good ad
vertising may be in other respects,
it must be run frequently and con
stantly to be really successful. ,
