Poultry Association and Rabbit
Breeders Disagree and In
dependent Exhibit May
Be Looked For.
Owing to a disagreement with the
Omaha Poultry association, which
lias just been incorporated, as to
their share of expense for partici
pating in the annual poultry show
which is to be given at the Auditor
ium some time this winter, the prob
abilities are that the Omaha breed
ers of utility hares, rabbits and pet
stock will hold an independent
For some years past the pet stock
show, which consisted largely of en
tries of the various breeds of meat
producing hares and rabbits, and
alsor cavies, has been held in con
junction with the poultry , show.
Tl.'.s division of the annual exhibit
has grown in extent and importance
with each succeeding year.
In the last few months the num
ber of persons engaged in the rab
bit industry in Omaha and Douglas
county has increased several hun
dred per cent'aiftf the show the com
ing winter promises to be the largest
of the kind ever held in the west,
-both as to the number of entries
and the quality of the exhibits.
Members of the Omaha Rabbit
Breeders' association feel, under the
circumstances, unless some com
promise is made with the poultry
organization, they will be coin
oelled to organize their own show,
rent a large buillding in the down
town section and give an indepen
dent exhibition some time during
The split-up may affect the at
tractiveness of the poultry show for
the reason that, one of the most at
tractive sections last winter was
that of the rabbits and pet stock.
War Exhibit of German
Trophies is Delayed
The Allied War exhibit of Ger
man trophies and other material
which was reported to be here the
latter part of this week has been
delayed to await the arrival of some
material from Europe. This an
nouncement is made by T. C.
liyrne, chairman of the state Lib
erty loan committee. The report
that it was to be here Thursday
and Friday came from a railroad of
fice which had a schedule of the
tour of the exhibit. As the tour
has been postponed it will arrive
in Omaha some time later.

"Oh, I see," murmured Miss
Maggie, in very evident relief. "That

only it does seem terrible not to
to tell them who you arc."
"Of course there is! Xow, write "It isn't charitv," she interrupted

to do that wouldn't bring happiness
anywhere, and would bring misery
everywhere, haven't we?"
'Then why do it? particularly
as by not doing it I am not defraud
ing anybody in the least, no; that
part isn't worrying me a bit now
but there is one point that does
worry me very much."
"What do you mean? What is

Fulton arrives m Chicago and can
write the news here to Hillerton.
"Oil, they'll get it in the papers,

"Yourself. My scheme gets Stan
ley G. Fulton back to life and Chi
cago very nicely; but it doesn't
get Maggie Duff there worth a
cent! Maggie Duff can't marry Mr.
JohnSmith in Hillerton and arrive'
in Chicago as the wife of btanley
G. Fulton, can she?"
"No-no, but he he can come
back and get her if he wants her."
Miss Maggie blushed.
''If he wants her, indeed 1" (Miss
Maggie blushed all the more at the
method and the fervor of Mr.
Smith's answer to this.) "Come
back as Mr. Stanley G. Fulton, you
mean?" went on Mr. Smith, smil
ing at Miss Maggie's hurried ef
forts to smooth her ruffled hair.
"Too risky, my dear! He'd look al
together too much like like Mr.
"But your beard will be gone I
wonder how I shall like you without
a beard." She eyed him critically.
Mr. Smith laughed and threw up
his hands with a doleful shrug.
"That's what comes of courting
as one man and marrying as an
other," he groaned. Then, sternly:
"I'll warn you right now, Maggie
Duff, that Stanley G. Fulton is go
ing to be awfully jealous of John
Smith if vou don't look out."
' "He should have thought of that
j before," retorted Miss Maggie, her
I eyes mischievous. "But, tell me,
I wouldn't you ever dare to come
in your proper person?"
"Never! or, at least, not for some
! time. - The beard would be gone, to
be sure; but there d be all the rest
to tattle eyes, voice, size, manner,
walk everything; and smoked
glasses couldn't cover all that, you
know. Besides, classes would be
i taboo, anyway. They'd only result
! in making me look more like John
j Smith than ever. John Smith, you
remember, wore smoked glasses for
i some time to hide Mr. Stanley G.

that up," apologized Miss Maggie
quickly, with an apprehensive glance
into his face. "And it wasn't mis

sure, and she'll do altogether dif

Smith, am I never to to come
back here? Can't we come back
ever?" "Indeed we can some time, by

Smith looks. We can come back
then. Meanwhile, you can come

milk for the babies, wasn't it?" he
teased "Well, however, that may be,
you'll have to come back to superin

wanting to do so long. But" his
face grew a little wistful "you
don't want to spend too much time
here. You know Chicago has a
few babies that need cleaner milk."
"Yes, I know, I know!" Her face
grew softly luminous as it had
grown earlier in the afternoon.

Women Wanted as Drivers
by Omaha Coal Dealers
Any woman who wants to drive
a coal wagon can get a job with an
Omaha coal concern, The work is
healthful, giving plenty of oppor
tunity for exercise in the open air,
say the coal dealers.
The request came Wednesday to
Mrs. Mabel Walker, in charge of
the Chamber of Commerce Wo
man's Employment bureau.
The coal company said it was so
short of men to deliver coal that,
it decided to try the women.
Mrs. Walker replied that she had
no applications from women for
positions as coal heavers.
"And I hope I never will have,"
she added. "That kind of work is
hard enough even for men."

the city's newest hostelry, the Ho
The lobby and second floor was a
veritable bower of flowers sent by
the friends of Harley Conant and
all day and evening crowds throng

floors of the hotel. Two hundred
guests were registered at the hotel

- Last night the-cafe on the second

expressed pleasure at the interest

tilted it the other.) "Or that, either,
for that matter," continued Mr.
"However, speaking of courting
Mr. Fulton will do that, all right, and
endeavor to leave nothing lacking,
either as to quantity or quality.
Think, now. Don't you know any
one in Chicago? Haven't you got
some friend that you can visit?"
"No!" Miss Maggie's answer was
prompt and emphatic too prompt
and too emphatic for unquestion

man cheerfuly. I don't know her

a red flag in your face this minute!
Now, listen. Well, turn your head
away, if you like if you can listen

quilly, paying n6 attention to her
gasp. "Well, all you have to do is
to write the lady you're coming, and
go. Never mind who she is Mr.
Stanley G. Fulton will find a way to
meet her. Trust him for that! Then
he'll call and meet you and be so
pleased to see you! The rest will be
easy. There'll be a regular whirl

theaters, candy, books, flowers!
Then Mr. Stanley G. Fulton will pro

surprised, of course, but you'll ac

finished with a deep sigh of satisfac

cause I've got to be 'Mr. Smith' as
long as I stay here. But you wait
till you meet Mr. Stanley G. Fulton
in Chicago! Now, what's her name,
and where does she live?"
Miss Maggie laughed in spite of
herself, as she said severely: "Her
name, indeed! I'm afraid Mr. Stao

having his own way that he forgets
he is still Mr. John Smith. How-

took out her purse and said that

Mr. Smith hastily, and with some
evident embarrassment, refused the
money, saying that he could not tell
yet what the price of the book would

Fred and Bessie, went to the sta

eyes, smiled tenderly. Then with
mock severity he frowned.
"I see that I'm bTing married
for my money after all!" he scolded.
"Pooh!" sniffed Miss Maggie, so
altogether bewitchingly that Mr.
Smith gave her a rapturous kiss.

Early in July Mr. Smith took his
departure from Hillerton. He made
a farewell call upon each of the
