Each season this store strives to specialize in each

Pretty Miss to Sing With the High
Little, Miss Riiu Snyder, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Snyder of Coun
cil Bluffs, is to sing the title roll
in the comic opera, "Pocahontas,"
which will he gicvn hy the Glee clubs
of Council Muffs High school at the
Nicholas theater, Friday evening.
Miss Snyder is a member of this
year's senior class. Her voice is a
clear, pretty soprano. She is dark
and petite and well suited to the part
of the romantic fndian girl.
For a number of years it has been
customary for the Glee clubs to per
sent some cantata or light opera in
the late winter or early spring. About
sixty-seven boys and girls, chiefly
from the three upper high school
classes, comprise the (ilee clubs. The
majority of these will form the chor
uses. Other leading parts will be
taken by Wheaton Clark, as the noble
Captain John Smith; by Harold
Hughes as John Rolfe, his friend, and
by Mildred Buz7a, as "Ahmeek." The
production is under the direction of
Miss Angie Middlcton, supervisor of
music in the public schools.
A special feature of this year's per
formance will be the appearance of
the high school orchestra, which has
been working as hard and as faith
fully as have the members of the
failed to adjourn and will in all prob
ability resume its star chamber ses
sions again Monday morning. No one
seems to know why the sixteen
closed-door jurymen arc staying on
the job, as apparently there is noth
ing in sight lor them to do but dis
pose of a few police court cases which
could be handled hy the county attor
ney's office without their assistance.
Two witnesses were subpoenaed
and called before the inquisitors to
testify Saturday morning. One of
them, Harry Armstrong, is a brother
Jury in Stephenson
Case Fails to Agree
Aurora, Neb., Feb. 17. (Special
Telegram.) Shortly before noon to
day the jury in the damage case of
Samuel C. Stephenson against the
Union Pacific notified Judge Corcoran
that it could not agree and it was dis
missed. The jurors had been out for
about twenty hours. They announced
that the final ballot stood seven to
five. The trial lasted three days.
Stephenson sued for $2,500 damages
for injuries he received in a wreck
near North Loup. The case will be
tried again in April.
Steel Net is Placed at
Gate of New York Port
New York, Feb. 17. A steel net,
designed to protect the port of New
York from hostile submarine and
other war craft in the event of war
was put in place at the entrance of
the harbor today. For the present it
will be kept in position only between
sunset and sunrise and will bar all
ships from leaving or entering the
harbor during the night. In case of
war, its construction provides for
placing it as a permanent barrier.

worth was the other witness.
A humorous incident of the 117
edition of the grand jury was the
bodv's investigation of a burlesque
gambling party staged at the Uni
versity club not long since. Accora
iiiir to rumors, the sixteen jurymen
believed in good faith that they were
on the trail of "something hot." A
member of the University club was
subpoenaed and quizzed, it is said,
as tn where the gambling parapher
nalia used at the burlesque "bucking

It is understood that the grand jury
would like to know where, on short
notice, the wise ones can lay in a
supply of roulette wheels, crap tables,
faro layouts and other necessities of
the green cloth world.

Repairs Were Needed.
The Fort Omaha balloon plant, in

gas bags, was installed by Captain
Chandler a number of years ago.
When the post was recently redesig

Many special parts and materials,

for the necessary repair work last

One hundred men, newly enlisted in

They have kept the experienced men

Captain D. H. Bowen and Lieuten

TODAY'S AID TO BEAUTY
Hair Is by far the most conspicuous
thing about us and is probably the
most easily damaged by bad or care
less treatment. If we are very care
ful in hair washing, we will have
virtually no hair troubles. A,n espe
cially fine shampoo for this weather,
one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair, that dissolves and
entirely removes all dandruff, excess
oil and dirt, can easily be used at
trifling expense by simply dissolving
a teaspoonful of canthrox- (which you
can get at any druggists) in a cup of
hot water. This makes a full cup of
shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy
to apply it to all the hair instead
of just the top of the head. This
chemically dissolves all impurities
and creates a soothing, cooling lather.
Rinsing leaves the scalp spotlessly
clean, soft and pliant, while the hair
takes on the glossy richness of natural
color, also a flufliness which makes it
seem much heavier than it is. After
a canthrox shampoo, arranging the
hair is a pleasure. Advertisement.
