"It is a lather's duty to take care
of his children," the court an

who said she too, could not care
for them, signed papers relinquishing
their custody to the father.
"My husband, a painter, does not
earn enough to support them and

plained. A Bee reporter found her in tears
late yesterday afternoon, just after
she bade bood-bye to her children.
Their fatlier took them to the
home of his sister, Mrs. Ove Olson,
on a farm near Neola, la.
"She'll be good to them, and I
can see them once in awhile; that's
the only comfort I have," wept the
mother. , .

Your Face and
Specialists of Varied Types Required in Manifold
Branches of Electrical Industry-Big Oppor
tunities Ahead for Right Persons.
By MAB&L WARNER RUGG.
THE flcctrical industry is so
manifold that we can but touch
generally upon its main branches,
giving some idea of its -wide range
oh interests and splendid opportuni
ties. There is the technical service
branch, the manufacturing phase
and the selling angle. Each of these
correlates closely with the other,
and each in turn is sub-divided into
markedly different phases, requiring
varied types of workers.
Omaha is the jobbing center of
the central states for many branches
of the industry but has little of the
manufacturing. That is carried on in
Chicago and cities farther east.
In Otnalia, as in other large job
bing centers of the electrical indus
try, the men who head the business
is as sal( managers or general man
agers, should- be, and generally are,
men with a technical college educa
tion in electrical engineering. How
ever, if the beginner Is willing to
go into a great manufacturing plant
and serve a four-year apprenticeship,
Does a House Have Chimney Pots?
The tall chimneys which are char
acteristic of factories, power plants.
and other places where heat is used
for the generation of energy, and the
chimney pots to be seen on top of
dwellings, have much in common, for

gen is essential to the burning of a
bright, well-heating fire. In fact,
,the rate at which a draught of air
travels throught the burning coals is
directly responsible lor the raoiditv
at which the fire burns, and it is for
this reason that the opening of
draughts above and below a furnace
will cause a rapid rise in temoerature.
while cutting off the supply of air
keeps the flame at a low ebb.
The rate at which this draught of
sir travels through the burning sub-

This lias the effect of increasing the
draught and operates along the same
lines as the towfring chimneys nec

of air to pass through the factory

The Next Step.
Many wise heads are nodding and
saying the next four year are go
ing to mean' a return to a higher
plane of Jhinking and being than
the immediate present in business
and society would indicate.
Don't you want to be in line?
Call it the style or what you will,
but a iew order of things is com
ing just around the corner, and you
known yourself you are getting
pretty tired of so much that is sordid
and loose in present-day customs.
Nothing short of high ideals and
courage to carry .these ideals into
every phase of every-day life will
ward off destruction at the hands of
those who cater to the baser in
stincts. It is time we all began to pull to
gether for a mutual benefit.
The world has not seen real law
and order for many a day.
Why don't you help to set the
style instead of Ming forced event
ually to keep within bounds.
It is a lot easier to do things from
conviction than because one is
forced to sound the depths as you go
along and find out what decent
persons are talking about and get
in line so quickly that it will look
as if you, the offender, were demand
ing clean living and clean amuse
ment. " U

The original solitaire was not
played with cards, but with a cir
cular board ""having 37 depressions,
in which were 37 glass balls. The
player took up one ball, then jump

jumped." If he managed to get alt
the balls off the board in this man

What It Tells
he 'Can get the equivalent of a
technical college training and be paid
a wage while Teaming.
The electrical field, above all oth
ers, -requires specialists. The sell
ing end is as manifold as the other
phases of the industry, so the men
entering these various parts of the
business must be of the right type,
There is the wire specialist, who
handles hundreds of kinds of wire
a science in itself "to know and
sell. The salesman who takes up
wiring is interested in nothing else,
excepting telephone apparatus,
closclv allied oroduct.
Another line. very, different, is the
selling of huge power plant equip
ment. I he man who sells thts-linc
will not, be interested at all in ar
tistic lighting fixtures. Conversely,
the man whp works successfully in
the special , lines o lighting for
homes, offices, and stores will not
know, nor care, about - great tur
bines and boners of the power plant.
Types for Varied Branches.
Tf you have been applying the
rules of character analysis here, you
will realize what different types of
men These salesmen must be. I he
men who sell the big turbines and
boilers must be of the purely en
gineering, decided motive type

fixtures must show the artistic na
Hire, with their motive structure
they must be more mental motive,
finc'.tcxturei and refined.
The wire specialist can succeed
with less book education and less
technical training than the other
types, and he can get his training as
a helper in almost any retail electric
wiring shop in this city.
The public in genecal has but- lit
tie conception of how highly spe
cialized the electrical game is and
does not know what splendid possi
bilities it has to offer in comparison
with any field of endeavor today.

It's the most speedy remedy
By JAMES J.
ft &r V tfc,
Perhaps, as young John D. has just suggested,
A hash was made of Mr. Samson's life,
And he of hair and strength was quite divested
J Because he picked a looker for a wife. (
Delilah, says young John, had too much beauty
To cook and sweep and work around tha house;
She hated every sort of wifely duty
And so she played the traitor to her spouse.
It may be true that happiness conjugal
In life is far more easy to attain
When wives have no desire but'to be frugal,
And most of such, unluckily, "are plain.
It may be true that husbands lose their buttons.
Grow old before their time, and bowed with care
When wives forgef to sweep, neglect their muttons
And spend their time in doing up their hair.
It may be true that fhefe i small enjoyment,
And very little comfort in repose
When wedded to a wife whose chief employment
Consists of dabbing powder on her nose. ,
Though beauty in a ball room is alluring,
And charming in a' garden's leafy shade,
' It often is a trifle past enduring
To have to sit around and see it made.
And yet at that, we tell young John D. plainly,
That he may talk, and write and scheme and plan.
And even lecture Sunday pupils vainly,
He'll never dim the lure of looks for man.
For youth will come and sit and look and listen
And doubtess they will fervently aree
And then with beating hearts and eyes that glisten
They'll pick the niftiest looker that they see.
