Creche Benefit Huge Success.
It was a really representative com
pany of women that gathered in the
ballroom of the Fontenelle Tuesday

crnoon dress and the dark colors and
furs were much in evidence because
of the chill of the day. thirty-five
tables were filled with players and
there were many assistants, so that
the proceeds will no doubt equal those
of other years in spite of the present
slimness ot our purses. Mrs. l. i.

One beautiful thing about all these
pretty prizes was that not a single
one had been solicited from the mer
chants of Omaha. All were donated
by friends or members of the Creche
board. The peacock fan which Mrs.
Walter Abbott took was a beautiful
article given by Mrs. James C. Dahl

The girl of the capital city had en

of socks which she sent to France.
After many months a nurse returning

that you sing a simple, popular song

town; that you write a neat and pleas

art; that you have a knack of color
ing last year s suit or wrap to make
it look new; that you have the gift
of concise and forceful speech, shown
in writing a letter or presenting a
business proposition; that you have
a good address; which means that you
can meet strangers without making
an unpleasant impression upon them;
that you have learned the art ot pack

you are "handy in a sickroom?"

beige cloth collar and cuffs embroidery in a con
servative design. - "
PIQUANTLY smart, as only the Freneh ima

Hammond founded it last summer
when the war cloud hung low and
there were thunderous rumblings on
the Mexican border. . It offered its
services in the event of a war with
Mexico. It periormed shining deeds
when New York was afflicted with the
dread epidemic of infant paralysis. So
lielptul was it, so much heart was
there behind its beneficences that a
grateful city gave it the name Militia
of Mercy. -

Minute Women of America. It wants

the women of the country so that all

The Pullman Company
struction for Pullman employes occurs
the phrase: "The most important feature
to be observed at all times is to satisfy and please passengers,"
and again "the reputation of the service depends as much upon
the efficiency of employes as upon the facilities provided by
the Company for the comfort of its patrons." x
Such personal service cannot be instantly developed; it can
be achieved only through years of experience and the close
'personal study of the wide range of requirements of twenty-six
million passengers. ;
To retain in the Pullman service experienced car employes
of high personal qualifications, pensions are provided for the
years that follow their retirement from active service, provision
afforded for sick relief assistance and increases in pay are
given at regular intervals with respect to the number of years
of continuous and satisfactory employment '
A further inducement in which civility and courtesy are
counted of great importance, is the award of an extra month's
pay each year for an unblemished record. As a result, a large
percentage of Pullman conductors and porters are qualified by
many years of experience to render passengers the highest
type of personal service. '
