- PIONEER, IS DEAD
Death Follows Injuries Aged
Woman Sustained in Tall at
. Home Week Ago. ' '
RESIDEKT . 1ITTY ' TEAKS
Mrs. Vargaretha Lange, 8, widow

Fashions and Fripperies .
Nothing Like "Olden Days"
The decadence of,, .the . . American
"smart set", is often commented on
v its devotion to dogs instead of babies,
its lavish expenditures on dress and
knicknackf, its waste of good money
on "monkey parties," drink and high
Whatever, justice- there may be in
these , criticisms, America, certainly
has not as yet descendedto -the .level
of the fripperies and follies of the
past, .as represented by the fashion
able sets of former times. A glance,
for instance, at the article "Costume"
in the Encyclopaedia . Britannka,
'with its pictures of men and women
of fashion in the sixteenth and fol
lowing centuries, will convince even
.' the pessimist of' the truth of this
What American , idler could ' be
charged with matching in hia daily
routine the "eighteenth century lord
who toasted to; Casanova of his
changing a shirt several, times a day,
his chin being shaved on each occa
. sionf" Or where is the lady of fash-,.-
ion in our time who would fairly rival
. the women of George Ill's reign?
That age "saw women' head-dress-,
ings reach an extravagance of tolly
- i passing all that had come before it.
Hair kneaded with pomatum and flour
was drawn up over a cushion or pad
of wool -and twisted into curls and
knots , and decorated with artificial
flowers and bows of ribbon, '

In Order to Enlist
Harold Kart, 20, an aviation pupil
of the late Lincoln Beachey, under
went an operation in an Omaha hos
pital in order to qualify physically to
join the aviation corps of the navy.
He is now convalescing, here, and
wilt soon be enlisted. H studied
aviation with Beachey and other bird
men at Chicago and elsewhere. His
parents live at Rapid City, S. D
where his father is a mining engi
neer, (young Karr is adventurous,
has traveled widely, including two
tours of the world. He chose navy
aviation as offering exciting and pa
triotic activity in the war.
City Farmer Has Task to
' Secure Seed for Planting
When he succeeds in buying fifty
bushels of wheat, for which he is
now negotiating, Edson Rich, attor
ney for the L'nion Pacific, believes he
will have driven the wolf from the
door and v'11 have solved the prob
lem of the high cost "of living.
Mr. Rich is the owner of a farm in
the vicinity of Calhoun, where he puts
in his soare time. He will have nlentv
of eggs, milk, butter and cream, frnit
ot an kinds and vegetables.
' To bring his hogs up to the "grain
fattening point, Mr. Rich is going to
feed them on alfalfa, and in purchas
ing seed to sow he has been given a
practical illustration of what the war
has done in boosting psices. While
the presumption is that no alfalfa seed
has entered into the manufacture of
munitions, and while none of this seed
has been sent to' the allies for food,
the price has advanced 100 per cent.
Mr. Rich has recently bought a bushel
of the seed, paying $10.50, whereas
three years , ago the-same quantity
would have cost a little more than $5.
