Columbia Gets Red Cross Pig.
"To market, to market, to buy a fat
Home again, home again, jiggety jig"
used to be the story. Now it is en
tirely different. Little red pigs sold
in a market square for the benefit of
the Red Cross are delivered by well-to-do
farmers to the purchasers in
When Miss Helene Bixby went
down to riatlsmouth to serve as "Co
lumbia" last Saturday she found that
among other attractions at the "coun
try store" were two of the cutest lit
tle red pigs imaginable. These little
porkers weighed about fifty pounds
each and were being hotly contested
for by the throng of people who
attended the closing celebration of
Red Cross week. Miss Bixby and the
party of Omaha people who spent the
week-end at a house party in Platts
mouth were determined that one of
the pigs should be hers, so that in due
time the storekeeper delivered a
squealing pig into her hands.
Late at night he was escorted in
due state to the scene of the house
party and there ensconced in a wire
chicken coop. Again a hose was
turned on him and he received a sec
ond shower bath. Ungrateful beast!
When morning arrived he was no
where to be found and the whole
company started out to scour the
countryside in search of the pig.
When the farmer who had donated
the pigs heard that Miss Bixby's pig
had run away he came driving to her
stopping place in his seven-passenger
car with another little red pig. This
one had a little white saddle mark on
top of its back and for that reason
was more estimable than the ferst.
Pig No. 2 was consigned to the wire
chicken coop and it, too, received a
shower bath. While the company ate
dinner on Sunday the little rascal es
caped, but a vigorous search brought
him to light. Then the guests chris
tened him Columbus first because he
discovered the way out of his pen and
second because he belonged to "Co
lumbia." This little pig was crated
Monday and delivered by express at
Miss Bixby's home. No sooner was
Columbus' crate open than he jumped
out and took to his heels down the
boulevard with all the little boys in
the neighborhood giving chase. Au
tomobiles grazed him or turned aside
to avoid him as he slid over the slip
pery street. Finally he was captured
and one of the little boys has taken
him to raise on shares. If he should
reach maturity Miss Bixby expects to
sell him for the benefit of the Red
The Fort Crook band furnished just
the right sort of music for the danc
ing at rlattsmouth. Fnres for the
best dancer being offered, Miss Bixby
won the first prize, a ring, which she
intended to put in Columbus nose
Some one, as a joke, helped himself
to it before she had a chance to dec
orate the pig.

A diamond ring sealed the troth of
two prominent Omaha young people
not more than two days ago. The
young woman is an attractive only
daughter, popular in the Happy Hol
low club set. The young man is a
former state golf champion, one of
Omaha's most popular bachelors and
prominently connected with another
Omaha country club. The climax of
this romance has been reached with
true war-time swiftness, but formal
announcement of the engagement will
not be made for several months, ac
cording to the fair bride-elect.
One more clue? Well, the brother
