Wealthy Indian Woman
Ranch Owner Expert
In Business ;
Mrs. Ed Lannigan, Descendant of
Shoshoni Indians, at South Side
Market to Look After Live Stock
After a successful summer on her
'little" ranch of 800 acres. Mrs. Ed
Lannigan, reputed to be the wealth
iest woman in all the broad state oi
Wyoming, is in Omaha for a shop
ping tour. This motherly looking
woman with her bright eyes and
shining black hair thinks her estate
a very small one and is very mod
est about her work of raising fine
cattle for the market.
Despite her cultured speech and
charming manner one has visions of
the council fires and gay wigwams
of that race of redskins who were
monarchs of ihe fields and forests
when our land was young, .for
Mr.i. Lannigan bears the striking
marks of her descendants, as her
mother was a member of the Sho
shoni tribe of Indians. Her father
was a Scotchman and she was born
and reared in the little town of
Du Bois, Wyo. j
After her marriage to Mr. Lan-
nigan she was introduced to ranch
life and here she has made her
home. Undaunted by her husband's
death, she has managed the ranch
herself, assisted by her three daugh
ters, May, Cora and Clara Lanni
gan. Mrs. Lannigan is loath to
leave her beautiful home with its
rolling acres, but plans to pass the
winter in California with her two
daughters, Misses Cora and Clara,
tvho are now with her in Omaha. -
Winning the war is very near to
the hearts of the westerners, ac
cording to Mrs. Lannigan, the peo
ple who live on the different
ranches meeting together for Red
Cross work regularly, while the
young girls plan all sorts of dances
and parties for the benefit of the
Mrs. Lannigan spent,,this morn

with her ranch foreman making ar
rangements for. the disposition of
ner came, vv mi ner ousiness trans
actions closed, she will devote her
self to that occupation dearest to
all feminine hearts, shopping for
smart fall clothes. Mrs. Lannigan

Mrs. Thomas Billotta, a Liberty
loan worker of Boston, has hit upon
a novel plan for increasing the sales
of bonds of the fourth issue. In
the uniform of the famous and im
mortal Bersaglieri troops of Italy
Mrs. Billotta has been making a
spirited drive in the Italian quarter of

of Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Mathews,

enter an army hospital at once.

of Mr. and Mrs. Casper E. Yost, at

Desserts Which the Food
It is always interesting to know
how people live up to what they
are preaching. The magazines for
a time were filled with stories of
the Hoovers' private life and espe

stated that the cafeteria in the head
quarters building of the United

meal. After hearing that one is nat
urally curious to know what sort of
desserts were eaten. Here are
some recipes which tell their own
story. They are in terms of 100
serviitgs. These recipes should be
helpful to those who have to pre
pare .big luncheons or suppers for
churches or women's clubs.
