. .'' ' 'Sy MELLIFICIA, March 20.
WITH, the first touch of green on the hills and the lilting note of the
meadow lark is heard the thoughts of Omahans begin to turn to their
country homes. Suddenly there is an insatiable desire for rakes and
hoes, seed catalogues supplant the newest fiction and the chief topic of con
versation about the tea tables consists of beans, turnips and potatoes.
Omaha boasts of a number of charming country places.
"Aloha the home f the A. L. Reeds,, will be opened the first of April
this year and already the grounds are being put in shape for the summer sea

Mr. and Mrs. Myron Learned will move to Jheir home, "WaldetK.Wood,"
thf middle of next month. Mr. Learned plans to do farming on an extensive
scale this year, as he will have 20 acres of potatoes, corn and green garden
The lure of the "green things growing" will call the C C Allisons very
early in the spring this year, too. "Rosemere Lodge" is one of the most at
tractive homes and its hospitable doors, are always open during the summer
season. Numbers of delightful affairs are given at the lodge during the sum
mer months, as Miss-Grace Allison is hostess at many an informal dance or
dinner party at this delightful spot.

A new job came to you yesterday without
a definite shape! Its worth is up to you.
By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
ANEW JOB came to y6u yesterday. It had no definite shape just the
same little job that comes to us all.
You know the kind 1 .
There isn't even a guide to show you the way to bring this new job
this almost nothing-r-from obscurity into prominence.
It brought no plans?
Well, what of thatl None of them do. , '
And now you complain because it is small.
Freely it came into your hads as a piece of plastic clay this little job
that is entirely dependent on you. Will you mangle this clay or mould
it? Will you smile upon it or scold it? Remember, it's entirely up to you.
Can you make of it a colossal thing? Or, in the end, will there be noth
ing to show for your work except a conglomeration of efforts misdirected,
time wasted because interest was lacking, and because there was no love
Will you and your job. that's only a baby job now, go down with the
drifting tide of humanity into insignificance? Or can you bring up this
charge to meet your fondest dreams?
Put into your new little job a life, a soul, to grow and make you proud;
bend every effort; tap all your resources before you give up and sink under
a failure s cloud.- And remember, it s all up to you.
You nd your job must be friends, not foes, or it will sicken and die.
If you drag along bemoaning your fate, your chances to win are lost.
Meet your new little job with a smile each day and a welcome in
Say to it: ,
"You're a baby now, but I shall try with my might to develop a worth
while adult. I'll work with you, pray tor you, and sometimes fight for you.
You are just like all other jobs. I am the jockey and you are the horse
we start under the wire of chance all together, we winners and losers
Some fall by the wayside and many keep up all the way at a modest pace.
"Why they smile and smile from the very beginning. Even though
they may cry and have heartaches, they smile, because they have faith and
courage ana love for work.
"I know you are small merely a chancebut you shall be mighty some
day, and it is I who will nourish you with labor and love."
Take heart, you person with new little jobs of almost no consequence.
A job is only the reflection of the man or woman who handles it. "Tall
oaks from little acorns grow," and your job is what you make it.
"Smokes' for Thespian
In the Trenches
A certain little actress sat waiting
for her cue one evening and to while
away the time she picked up a theatri
cal magazine. Turning the pages she
spied a letter 'headed "Somewhere in
France." It was from a lonely soldier
boy who had been an actor, too, be
fore his enlistment. He told of the
hardships of the trenches, of the long
marches, of the wet and the cold, but
none of these ills were as hard to
bear as the dearth of tobacco.
"All right, Miss Jordan," aroused
the girl from her reading and. she
had to hurry on to her act. As she
balanced and bowed on her tight rope,
her gay parasol bobbing above her
head, her thoughts werenot on her
work, nor on the sea of faces "out
front," but far away in France with
tne down-nearted jsaramy.
She enlisted the help of her sis
ter, Miss Josephine Jordan, and to
gether 4hey started out to collect
"smokes" for the boy. Two very de
mure young women they are, but very
determined, and as a result of their
efforts evevy actor on the bill at the
Orpheum this week has pledged a cer
tain amount to the smoke fund. A
certain Jack Cameron in the front
line trenches will be a very happy
man one of these days from the good
ly array of cjgarets and tobacco that
will be sent to him as a result of the
work of these young women.
The Misses. Jordans fill every spare
moment with, work for the soldiers.
Every month large packages go to
the different forts. They have played
at a number of cantonment camps
and have made friends everywhere, so
that their list grows every 'month.
Their' fingers fly busily at their knit
ting in between acts or while on the
train. rA cousin, Will Currin, who en
listed with the Canadians at the out
break of the war, was killed in action
not long ago. His brother has en-
listed in the American army, to "fin
ish the fight that Will started," as he
says. JNieuie Jordan conhded with a
pretty blush, that her husband was
waiting for his call to the colors.
"Oh, I will be so proud when he
goes," she said, her face lighting up.
The Misses Jordan have had inter,
esting experiences in their travels
about the world. In 1903 they were
interned in Nagasaki, for it was during
the Russo-Japanese war and every
foreigner was eyed with suspicion.
"Our father and mother played fn
Omaha 22 years ago," said Miss Jor
dan, "but they are now retired and
at our home in New Jersey." ,

Loving- a child, and (tvlnr
It knowledge, thla la living:.
Loving- a 'child brings pain,
. And is Ufa's greatest gain.
Loving a child Is knowing
The fierce joy of a sowing
That shall, cause mighty reaping.
Loving a child Is weeping.
And fearing, too, and praying;
This, there ic no gainsaying.
Loving a child is being
A part of Ood, and seeing
The world beneath one's hand
Be different, and grow
To one's thought. Even so.
Loving a child Is key
To every mystery.
Loving a child Is laughter
And heartache after. .
Heartache and grief and pain.
But always Joy again.
Ice Cream Can
Liners Save Tin
The tin plate shortage has centered
interest upon the c?i liner, a device
with which many ice cream containers
ordinarily discarded can be made
serviceable and sanitary for a fraction
of the cost of a new can, and with
minimum use of new tin and steel.
These liners are an important eco
nomy to the ice cream trade just how,
for ice cream makers purchase an
enormous quantity of new cans year
ly, and today are confronted not only
with scarcity and rising cost of cans,
but increased cost of milk, crtam,
sugar, gelatin and other ingred ents,
as well as increased taxes on flavoring
Large Packages Economize
A backing powder concern in Chi
cago is distributing a; placard to gro
cers recommending that consumers
purchase double size packages of all
food articles packed in tin, thus sav
ing about 35 per cent tin plate for use
in ammunition. Baking powder is also
recommended in connection with
cornbread and a special booklet of
war-time recipes is offered house
wives who are interested.
