MUCH MERIT VIENNA PRESS MODERATE Washington, Feb. 11. Federal in . vestigation of the news print paper situation has uncovered enough evi tlcncc, it was made known today, to warrant the Department of Justice asking indictments of paper manufac turers for alleged anti-trust law viola tions.

The Federal Trade commission, which has furnished much of the in formation on which, the Department of Justice it taking action, announced today that francis J. Heney ot Cali fornia has been engaged as a special attorney in the commission's inquiry into high news print prices, and that under his direction the commission . would continue its investigation after a preliminary report is made to con Kress early next week. Additional data will be supplied to the uepart ment of Justice as fast as it is ob tained. The report to congress, which was to have been made Monday, probably will be delayed for some days because of the illness of one of the commis sioners. It will be in the nature of an interim report and will cover the efforts of the commission to find a solution for an apparently news print shortage and relict lor publishers from almost prohibitive prices that have obtained tor about a year. . Never a Shortage. . The Federal Trade commission, it is understood, will report that it has found that increases in news print prices within the year are from four to twenty times the advance in pro duction costs. It will say there never has been an actual news print short age and that manufacturers have helped create a panic among publish ers by intimating there was one. Havana Aroused by Report of a Plot to Upset Government Havana, Feb. 11. Havana was stirred today by report! of a revo lutionary movement. During the . night the secretary of the interior, Aurelio Hevia, notified the civil and military authorities that a plot to overthrow the government had been discovered, involving civil and mili tary officials and rumors that high army officers had been placed under arrest, spread over the city, causing both excitement and alram. There had been mutterings of an uprising ever since the presidential elections in November fast, the result of which has not yet been determined. It was reported, but authoritatively denied by Secretary Hevia, that Briga dier ueneral Pablo Mendieta, brother of Carlos Mendieta, liberal vice presidential candidate, and General Espinoza had been detained. These stories were later disproved by the appearance of these two officers at the palace. Shelton Entertains Live Stock Men of This City Shelton, Neb., Feb. 11. Special Telegram.)

Solemn public prayers will be offered for the French arriies throughout Lent through the action of Cardinal Lucon, archbishop of Rheims and Cardinal Amette, arch bishop of Paris.

Mrs. Edward MacDowell, pianist, and the widow of the greatest Ameri can composer, completely captivated an Omaha audience last evening at the Young Women's Christian associ ation auditorium. She appeared for the benefit of the Peterborough col ony for creative workers, which is the work of the MacDowell Memorial as sociation. and under the local ausoicea of Kdilh L. Wagoner, who was at one time a pupil ot MacDowell. and who made a few brief introductory remarks. . Mrs. MacDowell captivated by her own delightful personality, her inter pretations or her husband s music, and by the interest of her program. She, more than any one else, realizes the value of ideal environment for creative work, environment such as MacDowell only had for a short time in his life, and her unselfish enthusi asm in helping to finance the Peter borough colony as such a permanent place could not but be seen and ad mired. Explains the Purpose. In her brief talk at the opening of the program she told something of the aims and Durnoses of this institu tion, bow it has grown from a small and uncertain beginning to definite and assured success in the accom plishments of those aims, and of her interest in seeing it a financial success as well. Besides the brief talk, Mrs. Mac Dowell prefaced many of the numbers she played with a few remarks about how they came to be written or with a brief incident in connection with them which added an intimate touch and personal interest to them. It may have been a surprise to more than one present to realize what an interesting program could be given trom the works of MacDowell alone, a fact by the wav which sneaks eloquently of his genius as a com poser, and Ins versatility of subiect matter. It was a tribute to Mrs. Mac Dowell as a pianist, that throtm-h her playing the richness1 of "chord fa bric," the tonal coloring and many were expressed clearly and intelli gently to the audience. Music Well Played. All of her numbers were well in terpreted with dynamic contrasts and individual conceptions of the numbers, all the more interesting through her Close association with the composer. All of the numbers are so colorful, and atmospheric, that it surprises all the more that each in its way can be so dif ferent. "Flute Idyl," largo from the "Sonata Tragica," '"Winter," from Opus thirty-two, and "A. D. 1620" from the "Sea Pieces" were esoeciallv enjoyable to the writer. "From a Ger man forest was a rich and beauti ful number, and was to enthusiasti cally received that it was repeated. The brilliant "Witches' Dance" closed the program, but as evervone re mained in their seats, and Mrs. Mac Dowell in resDonae to the hrartinraa of the applause added three extra numbers "lo a Wild Rose." "Scotch Poem" and "The March Wind." Hollweg Thinks U-Boats , Will End the War Quickly 1 Paris, Feb. 11. The Berlin Kreuz Zeitung, according to a Geneva dis patch to the Temps, says that Chan cellor von Bethmann-Holiweg counts upon the submarine to end the war quickly. "Every day badly employed," adds the paper, "is lost for Germany and gained for England, which perfects its means of defense. We must has ten our action. Five or six months will suffice. May God grant that we do not renew with out submarines our experiences with Zeppelins." The newspaper expresses the con viction that less than seven weeks of submarine warfare will "put England out of action." Omaha Whistent Sweep The Plate at St. Joseph St. Joseph, Mo., Feb. 11.

The silken rustle of alighting wings crept in her ears, and while her head was drawn sharply back and two vel vet and steel hands were clutched over her eyes, a silvery voice crowed "Guess Who !" And the maiden smiled, with not a second to think, and named this stranger whose voice was unknown "I know you ; you are Love !" Teach Girls a Dix; By DOROTHY DIX. There are millions of parents in these. United States today who are wondering just what to do with their Mamie or Sadie, who 'graduated from high school last June. They have neither the inclination nor the money to send her off to college. They are well enough off for her not to be forced at once into office, or store, or factory. They don't want her to spend her time gadding the streets with other idle girls and boys, and so the prob lem of what to do with Mamie's and Sadie's superfluous time and energy is a problem that keeps them awake of nights. Let me implore the parents of such girls to settle the question in the only right way by setting their daughters to learn some gainful occupation by which they can earn an honest living t the need ever comes to them. We women talk a lot about the wrongs of our sex, but every political injustice and social injustice that has ever been perpetrated against us sinks into nothingness before the wrong that our parents do us in not teaching us some way to support ourselves.. They send us out into the world helpless and defenseless, with no weapon with which to protect our selves. They put us at the mercy of poverty and cold and hunger and bru tal men, for these are the cruel lot of the woman in need who knows no way of making enough money to pro vide for her daily wants. It is the crime of all crimes, and that it is com mitted in the name of love does not palliate it, nor change its effect. Lite at best is full of chances. No body can tell what a few years mav bring forth. Riches take wings and fly away. Relative and friends off. The most promising marriages often end in disaster. No human foresight can altogether protect a girl against the contingen cies of fate, but if we have trained her to some trade or profession so that she has in herself the ability and skill to make a decent living, we have at least warded off from her the worst blow ot disaster. . We have given her an anchor to the windward that will hold her safe while the storm blows over her. Teach your trirls tome wav to sun- port themselves, because it is the surest way to protect them against Business, Says Some Day They temptation. Suppose, father, there should come some crash in business that would sweep away your little for tune, and you should die leaving your family penniless. Such catastrophes happen often, and girls gently and de licately reared as yours are thrown suddenly out into the world to sink or swim. If your girl has a good trade at her fingers' ends, she will swim safely into shore. But if she knows nothing on earth to do that will earn enough to keep body and soul together, you know what is almost sure to happen when her clothes are in rags, when she is shivering with cold, when she is starved, and despairing. It is the girls who have no skilled labor to sell who sell themselves, and their sins are on their parents' heads. Their parents could have saved them by teaching them how to make an honest living. Girls should be taught some gain ful occupation, because it gives them self-respect to be producers instead of wasters and' spenders. It makes them feel that they, are of some use in the world. It gives them a broader outlook on life and turns them from' playthings into, intelligent human beings with an aim and pur pose. The fluffiest-headed little cash girl that ever drew her own pay envelope has got some quality of independ ence about her that the - richest fe male parasite who has lived on others all her life never knows. "But I expect my daughter to marry." say parents. Perhaps. ': But it's a fifty-fifty chance whether . a girl gets married in these days when the high cost of living makes matri mony more and more a luxury of the rich. No parents can safely count on handing over their daughter's sup port to some man. Certainly the possibility of such a thing does not justify a father and mother in risking leaving a helpless, poor old maid to either go to the poorhouse or live around on relatives-in-law who don't want her. ' But it does not injure a girl't chances of marriage for her to learn how to support herself. Ia increases them. Girls who work in offices have ten times the chances to marry that society girls have. Moreover, no woman makes to good a wife as the business girl who knows from ex perience the value of promptness and system and efficiency and, above all, This to a small young lady who wrote me on blue paper to know HOW she was to know Love when he came! Funny! He never fooled a feminine creature yet when he came, and cried "Guess Who!" NELL BRINKLEY. Dorothy May Need It who knows from actual experience how hard money is made. No woman who has ever earned a dollar looks at it with the same eyes that the woman does who has only nad money given her. the one thinks it grows on trees; the other knows it comes through blood and sweat, and she handles it accordingly. Suppose a girl marries well, but disaster overtakes her husband. He may fail in business, or lose bis situa tion through no fault of his own. He may become an invalid. He may die, leaving her with a hquse full of children. It is a tragedy if the wife is a helpless untrained woman who knows no way of making a cent. Her hsuband may perish for lack of a little help, or for lack of proper nourishment.-. Her children may be separated and sent to public insti tutions because she cannot feed them. But if she, has ben taught' some gainful occupation, the situation is merely a misfortune. . She can step into the breach, keep her. family to gether, and work out their salvation. Above all, having been trained to some gainful occupation is the. sharp sword with which a woman can pro tect herself against a brutal husband if she has the misfortune to marry such a one. There is nothing more pitiful in the world than the fact that untold numbers of women have to endure daily martyrdom of abuse and ill-treatment from men who kick them about as if they were dogs, and like dogs they, have to lick the hand that beat them, ' because they r "have no way by which they can support them selves and theif children. . t- An'd their husbands know, this and take advantage of ' the - knowledge. These men would not dare to ill-use a wife who could go back to her old job. . y ' For these and a million other good reasons I implore all Darents. as thev love their daughters, to have them taught some gainful occupation by which they can support themselves. Financial independence" is the best gift that any father and mother can make to their daughter, and to with hold it from her is simply gambling with her future.

I Little Bobbie's Pa By WILLIAM F. KIRK. I toald Pa last nite that I had to rite a artikel for our skool paper about the hve gratests men that ever lived. I see, sed Pa, well, I will be glad to help you. The teecher sed our parents cud help us by giving us the naims, I toald Pa, but she sed we had to rite the artikel ourselfs. Well, sed Pa, first I will pick out the five men for you. I shud sav. sed Pa, leeving myself out on account ot my modesty, that the five gratest men wud te: 1. Alexander the Grate. 2. William Shakespeer. 3. Abraham Linkun. . 4. Thomas Edison. 5. John J. McGfcw. Then Ma beegan to laff. It is too bad you left yursclf out, sed Ma. No list wud be reely complete without yure bnte naim at the hed of it. Well, sed Pa, I suppose so, but I doant know wich one of them naims to scratch out. You certingly wuddent want to put me in place of Shakes peer, wud yu, sed Pa. f wuddent want to half as much as you want to, sed Ma, but I think you are a grater inventor than Edison. You have invented moar excuses & yarns, sed Ma., than all his mvenshuns put together & you had to work a lot quicker, too, Ma sed. I never saw you falter yet wen it came to maiking up a excuse out of nothing, sed Ma. Well, sed Pa, I mite put my naim in & throw out one of the dead ones at that. We will sec. Now, sed Pa. this is the way Bobbie shud start his artkel: "Glancing hack oaver the pages of history & standing in awe-struck awe beefoar'thc miteyfiggers of the world's grate giants, we see naims wich shines above the common herd like a sunset or a red head at noon. The 'grate, the powerful, the mitey men of all time is them men wich has showed by thare greatness that other men, wen compared with them, is less grate, as-it. were." That is a good way to start it, sed Pa. It 'sounds fine, sed Pa. It doesn't sound varv fine to m. I toald Pa. You mussent rite this essay tor me, i nave to rite it myself. I have to tell the teecher it is mine & I doant want to tell a lie. That is rite. Bobbie, sed Ma. tell yure father to tare up that peece of paiper & taik me out to see a moving picter while you rite yure essay. Yure lather is a escort, not a essay-ist, sed Ma. So Pa toar up the paiper, but I put it together aggen after he had took Ma to the picter. show., , j w Vienna (Via London), Feb. 11. Gov ernment circles and the public general ly view the delayed action of President Wilson regarding the relations be tween Austria-Hungary 'and the United States as a somewhat favor able omen and wonder if no rupture is to occur. The newspapers, in a maioritv of cases, hold a similar view. with -the result that, the tone of the editorials is losing all its sharpness, save in the case of a few radical pa pers, of which the Reichs Post, the most prominent Catholic organ, is the chief instance. The Reichs Post had three large white spots, inflicted by the censors in an editorial attacking President Wilson tin's morning. Judging by the little that censors permitted to appear the editorial must have been ex tremely rabid. Do Not Commit Themselves. All the other papers this morning confined themselves to discussing the attitude of the other neutrals toward the president's act regarding Germany and expressing the hope that the American government would learn therefrom that the central powers' case was not so one-sided as the friends of the entente would have the world believe. Several papers, knowing the gov ernment's attitude in matters affectinf! President Wilson's actions, refrained from committing themselves edi torially on that subject, taking up the necessity of fuel and similar mat ters instead. The Associated Press learns that the Austro-Hungarian government yesterday instructed the military and other public safety organizations that the greatest possible courtesy should be shown all Americans in any event and that possible complaints by any American should receive prompt at tention at the hands of all the au thorities. Case Looks Hopeful. At the American embassy the opin ion was expressed this morning that the case looked hopeful. At noon the papers published, with apparent sat isfaction, a wireless aispaccn irom New York to the effect that the American government had not taken real measures against German and Austro-Hungarian shipping, reports of which were widespread here. The dispatch in question, which stated that Washington had instructed the Amer ican officials to proceed with caution and courtesy, made the best possible impression. Emperor Charles has olaced at the disposal of the people for the distri bution of fuel his entire stable equip ment, in order that the coal which has accumulated at the depots may be dis tributed to the needy.
