MISSOURI RIVER
IS RISING RAPIDLY
Moves Up Five Feet and Three
Inches in Last Four Days
Now at Fifteen Feet.
FLOOD STAGE IS 19 FEET
s The Missouri river it riling rapidly.
During the twenty-four houri ending
at 7 a. m. Thursday it rose 07 of a
foot During the three preceding
twenty-four hour periods it rose re
speetivety 1.6, 1.7 and 1.J feet, a total
of 5.3 feet in four day.
Thii it going some, Colonel
Welsh of the weather bureau admits.
Flood stage is nineteen feet here.
The river now itanda at a little more
than fifteen feet, A montn ago it
was only seven feet
Reports from np the river shown
that the river has risen rapidly there.
"All the tributaries are full to the
top and there is a heavy covering of
snow over a large area of country
north of us," said Colonel Welsh.
Thursday's weather reports were
favorable, at they showed decided
drop 'in temperature in the Dakotas.
This wilt retard thawing and allow
the surplus water in the Missouri
here and below to run off. But if a
sudden and decided thaw comes in
the north it, will develop a very
serious situation here.
There has been no very serious
' flooding of Omaha since April 24,
1881, when the river reached 23.8
feet, the highest record here. You
could row a boat from Seventeenth
and Clark to Council Bluffs then.
Reports of Crop
Damage Send Grain

close to the top. ,
Corn sold up to $1.18, none selling

Spring Styles Are Shown On
Real Live Mannequins
By POLLY THE SHOPPER.
C'est tout a fait charmant ici, n'eit-ce-pas,
Mademoiselle? Mais, oul,
c'est tret beau et superbe.
Paries vous Francais? But even if
you do not, you missed rare treat
in not attending the French visiting
day fete. at Benson & Thome's this
morning and afternoon. The occasion
was the opening of their exquisite
new French salon. 'Tis the custom in
La Belle France for the children, as
well as the parents, to attend these
gay fetes, so a cordial invitation was
extended to grown-ups and kiddies
alike. ;
I've been on the tip-toe of ex
pectancy for days patiently waiting
for the decorators to put on the final
artistic touches so you can imagine
my delight when Mr. Reynolds, man
ager of Benson & Thome's store,
finally told me that I might coma aa
early as 11 o'clock Thursday morn
ing for cup of cafe noir. Strains
of music, which we immediately
recognized as being French airs,
greeted us, as my little friend and I
approached the salon through the velvet-carpeted
cloak room. The salon,
which is intended as an exhibition
chamber for the display of their most
beautiful garments, Is lovely in its
frescoed and mirrored walls.
Four trim maids, looking as tho'
they had just tripped out from a veri
table opera comique, daintily served
us chocolate, coffee and French sweet
meats, whilst we enjoyed the lovely
exhibition of new spring styles on
live mannequins pretty girls coached
for the part by one ot our foremost
dancing masters three young women
displayed the ladles' and misses'
frocks, and four children the most
up-to-the-minute garments for jun
iors. It was truly quite a Frenchy affair.
Grain Exchange Holds the ,
- Palm for Flag Display
When It comes to displaying flags,
the Omaha Grain exchange holds the
edge on anything in the city. Large
flags were bung in the trading room
some days ago and now smaller flags
ire being placed in each of the win
dows. Up to this time 128 of the
small flags have been hung and there
are about as many more to put up,

New York, March 28.-Rear Ad
miral Bradley A. Fiske, U. S. N., re
tired, who had been expected to speak
on "The Mind of the Navy" before
the New York Electrical society to
night, was unable to deliver his ad
dress because Secretary of the Navy
Daniels withheld his permission, it
was announced by, George H. Guy,
secretary of the society.
Beans Condemned
Belonged to the
Union Packing Co.
The 1,000 sacks of navy beans
which have been discovered in a
local warehouse by food inspectors
and against which suit has been filed
in the federal court, were consigned
to the Union Packing company, which
has a plant on the belt line ot rail
way at Spaulding street
This company is now involved in
voluntary bankruptcy proceedings. It
was through these proceedings that
the beans came to the attention of
federal inspectors.
The beans are said to be "culls,"
the very lowest grade of beans, the
sweepings. -
As to their being "allowed" to
spoil as part of a big conspiracy to
make a food shortage and conse
quently boost prices, this is said to be
improbable.
. It is oointed out that, if that had
been the object, they would have
been permitted to spoil in Indiana and
Michigan. The owners would not
have gone to the expense of shipping
them to Omaha. The freight charges,
however, have not been paid, i he i
Union Pacific and "Milwaukee" rail-1
roads have claims against the con
signee for freight charges.
Railroads Mum as to All
Movements of Troops
The railroads have placed a com
plete censorship upon all information
relative to the movement ot soldiers,
whether they, go singly, in squads or
larger eodiesv,-
Local railroad headquarters have
received from the secretary of war
requests that no information be given
out as to when, where or how sol
diers are to be transported over the
respective lines. Railroad official
look upon all such requests as com
mands and regarding them as such,
have clamped the lid on all informa
tion that has to do with army mat
ters. The railroad officials are requested
not to give any information concern
ing what is being done in the way of
soldiers having been placed on guard
at bridges, terminals or other places
This is taken to mean that at all
points along the railroad lines where
civilian guards have heretofore been
employed, soldiers are on duty.
Suffs to Train Women
To Speak in Campaigns
"To learn counter arguments to
present when men tell us why we
should not vote is the reason we want
a suffrage school." Mrs. Charles Mar-
pie told a group of twenty suffragists
who met at the court house Wednes
day evening. The suffrage school will
be maintained and the same outline
of atudy used as the one held at the
Young Women's Christian associa
tion recently .by four instructors sent
by the National Suffrage association.
Next week the suit rage school
meets Wednesday night, but after
ward "school" will be in session Fri
day evenings in the court house.

HUDSON COACHES
Six Types of Closed Cars Suitable
(or AU Year Round Service
Hudson closed care he Limousine, Town Car,
, the Landaus, Sedan and Cabriolet arc being used
more and more in all-year service.
There is a logical reason for this from the stand
point of both utility and distinction.
Time was when motorists were even disdainful
of the windshield. They donned dust coats, veils,
goggles and braved the distress of dirt and dust
without complaint. But such discomforts have
become worse and have taken much of the joy out
of touring. When the roads were not so crowded
and we didn't have to take up so much dust it
wasn't so bad. But now we demand more comfort.
The closed car has long been the popular type in
Europe. It is now the accepted type of Americans
who demand that they shall not give up their tour
ing and that they shall ride in comfort.
Such cars are ideal every day of the year regard
less of the weather.
When it is hot it is also dusty. There is protection
from the sun and from the dust. When it is pleasant
the windows can be opened to that one is just as
much outdoors at in an open model.
These are the types tor use between town'and the
house in the country, or to the country club.
Rigidly Built for Heavy Service
These new spring models are designed and built
forjust such service. .
Special attention has been given to tnginng tho

It was a telephone call to the police
that brought to light Androsloff's
long sleep and his alleged relation
ship to the man who engineered the
Russian revolution. Dr. Charles
Shook and Officer James Murphy,
who plucked the man from the
bushes, say that Nicholas looked like
anything but a relative of royalty.

It requires unusual skill to build bodies that win
stand up under such service. As the largest builders
of closed bodies in the world, we have learned and
eliminated the faults so difficult for builders of less
experience to overcome.
The tremendous reserve power of the Hudson
Super-Six motor carries the closed type with the
ease and liveliness of the lighter open models of less
powerful cars.
There is about these cars none of the sluggishness
so common to most cars of the closed type.
There Is Distinction in Such a Car
In a Hudson Super-Six of either of these types
you can ride with the greatest ease and in such
comfort and luxury as you would enjoy in your
own drawing room
One is no longer content merely with eniveyances
that will take one from place to place. Comfort
and excluaiveness also are demanded.
The satisfaction of riding in such ease at com
pared with the less comfortable type is just as
great in the summer as is felt in riding in such a car
in the coldest or most inclement weather.
The owner of a Hudson Super-Six is always tho
envied. The owner of n Hudson Super-Six coach
is the envied of the envied.
In selecting the new car for this season give con
sideration to one of these closed types. They are
the highest examples of the coach builders art.
There is nothing found in the most expensive that
is not equalled in these cars, for Hudson sets the
mode of closed cars. - - . . .
And there is also the Hudson Super-Six chassis
which has out-performed all other cars. The Hud
son Super-Six closed car is ideal mechanically, in
durability and in distinctiveness.

The cops couldn't find Nicholas then.
