Patriotism Viei With Easter.
Society people of Omaha concluded
Lent with two big tvenu, the pa
triotic dinner and meeting Saturday
evening and Easter dinner Sunday.
On the platform at the patriotic meet
ing were een the member of the
patriotic dinner parties at the Fonte
nelle and others, Mr. and Mrs. E.
S. Westbrook, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin
T. Swobe, Mr. and Mrs. Frank W.
iudson, Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Reed,
Jr. and Mrs. Clement Chase, Mr.
and Mrs. Osgood Eastman, Mr. E. W.
Dixon, Mr. Charles Hull, Mr. Stock
ton Heth and many more. They were
among the most enthusiastic members
of the gathering and sang as lustily
and with as much feeling as if they
were in the choir at a Billy Sunday
revival meeting. After the meeting
there was little gayety, for the ma
jority of the patriots went seriousjy
to their homes, the fact that the sons
of our most prominent families are
volunteering for service brings home
the war situation to ail.
Last evening at the Fontenelle
flags and Easter lilies, at present
symbols of two such different senti
ments, were used as decorations. The
Easter hats of the fair diners were
chiefly the handsome shiny black
enes which "our best shops" show at
exclusive prices. The chill of tlie
evening, however, had made it neces
sary to combine with these new hats
heavy winter coats. All society was
present to enjoy the occasion and
to observe the cessation of Lent.
Miss Marion Kuhn with her fiance,
Mr. Clarence Griffin, and her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. John A. Kuhn, were
the center of much interest. Greet
ings were extended to Miss Kuhn
by all her friends and Mr. Griffin was
introduced to those at surrounding
tables. Only informal things are
planned for Mr. Griffin during, his

end visit with her aunt, Mrs. C. W.
Russell, returned last evening.

given this afternoon by Mrs. Brandon

poned owing to Miss Burrougb's in

Preparedness Against Flies
One .warfare is never ended, and
that is the one against the housefly.
The summer campaign Is about to be
gin, and it should be waged with re-J matically keeping the solution always
lentless vigor. Only by keeping at it
all the time can the fly scourge be
held in check. Flies are dangerous;
the; are the link that connects the
unhealthy with the healthy. If you
would avoid disease, or the spread of
disease, kill the fly.
The United States government
makes the following suggestion for
the destruction of house flies. For
maldehyde and sodium salicylate are
the two best ttv poisons. Bom are
superior- to arsenic. They have their Kfte paper is alway9 kept moist

convenient to handle, their dilutions
are simple and they attract the flies.
A formaldehyde solution of ap

be made by adding three teaspooniuls
of the concentrated formalehyde solu:
tion, commercially known as forma
lin, to a pint of water. Similarly, the

A container, such as shown above.
has been found convenient tor auto

filled or partially filled with the solu

which is placed a piece of white blot

put bottom up over the glass. The
whole is then quickly inverted, a
