that the sight of flying farm lands,

and a cow or two, becomes monoto

reading and knitting palls. But, did
our ingenious Nebraska women spend
the day idly? Not they. They
promptly invited all the women on
the train who were going to the
meeting into their private car.
Their guests were surprised and de

Short addresses and words of greet

program was an intimate little talk
given by Miss E. Kobe, a Red Cross

have occupied the afternoon, but now,
when every moment counts, numbers
of 'gray and khaki sweaters are pulled
out of as many gay cretonne knitting
bags and several rows are added to
each garment before the guests go
home. Mrs. C. J. Hubbard enter

fluttered from the center of the table
and the guests of the club were Mrs.

Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Wait for An Answer.
Paar Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: Having
n many of your aniwara to letters In The
Bee I would also like to ask you a ques
tion. I am a girl SO years of age. Some.
time ago I was Introduced to a young man
who lives in another city about the size of
Omaha. Not long ago I received .a very
nice letter from him which I 'answered and
have been carrying on a correspondence. In
his last letter he asked me for a date If he
ever happened In our city again, but I have
not heard from him for about three weejes.
Miss Fairfax, I want to ask you If you
think this young man has "gone back oh
me." aa he has not wrtttten for three weeks,
or Is a letter three weeks apart often
enough to write, not having aeen him but
onceT In our letters wo wrote Uttle. aa we
have not been acquainted very long. . He
Is a respectable young man and I would
like Very much to know why he has stopped
writing to me. Respectfully yours,
Walt for the young warn to answer your
letter. If he cares ta continue the eorre
pondenoa be wilt do so, yom may be sure.
As you know him so slightly It la not sur
prising that he has not written. '

hate to, as we are afraid we will make a
mistake. Also how are table d'hote or a la
carte pronounced and what Is their mean

snap shots are taken? TWINS.
Tou could erder chicken a la king, chicken
salad, a aandwlch, or an Ice, any ef these
thlnga are nice after the theater. Table
d'hote is pronounced with a short "a" In
"table" and then "dote," A table d'hote
dinner la a course dinner Just as you would
serve In your own home, with the exception
that you can often select the meat course.
When one orders "a la carte" It means or
dering special dishes on the menu. It Is
pronounced a la cart, just aa It 1 spelled.
Many ef the smaller studio take tiny
stamp else pictures, but I know of no place
where anap shots ere taken. -

Take Care of Canned Foods
It is good conservation, and also
good business, to' provide dry-storage
space for canned goods in retail and

will rust and luin tin goods, producing
pin holes in the cans, leading to the
