Library to Solve
Reference Works in Demand;
v Seekers After Knowledge
Find Orange in Berry and
Onion Related to Lily.
HOLDING A HUSBAND
Adele Garrison' New Phase of
"Revelation of a Wife"
Did you know the onion and lily
were related? Well they are. The
lily spends most of it time in high
society and church, thus characteriz
ing itself as a plutocrat. The onion
is usually found in some sort of stew
and being poor, the lily has nothing
to do with it. Each is noted for its
perfume. The one of sweet penetrat
ing odor reminding one of church
choirs and surplices, the other ot
stevedores and bull fighters.
This is only one of the many
things that are found out every day
in the reference room of the public
library by huudreds of men, wom
en and children, from every walk in
life who are seeking answers to the
questions propounded in The Bee's
Ministers, engineers, coal heavers,
stenographers, schoot girls and in
surance men are congregating in the
room each evening. With The Bee's
questionnaire spread before them
thev dig into the encyclopcda Brit-
tanica or Americana and a host of
other reference works getting the an
swers 10 questions.
Not Edison Product.
The questionnaire did not originate
with Edison. Many of the boys who
heaved a mean hand grenade in the
Argonne knew what it was. Edison
merely converted it to his own use.
The Bee is making it popular for
hundreds of persons who never
knew there was a public library with
books inside 'n everthing, are find
ing it out now and are learning to
find their way about through a maze
of reference works with intelligence.
It isn't altogether a search after
knowledge, librarian say. For
those who answer 31 of the questions
correctly know they will receive a
financial reward. . Even at that. . In
searching for the answers to the ques
tions a great deal of knowledge is
One of the questions is: What is
a, spectrum? Looking up spectrum
in the encyclopedia orte learns that it
has souething to do with spectro
graphy. After spectrum is says: See,
dispersion, light, spectroscope. The
search continues and in time the
searcher learns what a spectrum is.
Concerns Geography. .
One of the questions has to do
with the geography of Nebraska.
Consequently a new map of the state
showing everything connected with it
geographically lias been hung up in
the library hall for easy access.
What is an orange, appears to be
an easy question. The answer is
probably written, a fruit. Brother
you never was so wrong. An orange
is the fruit of a certain plant of the
citrus family and in reality is a
i Did you know that the horse once
had five toes and was known to our
forefathers as the cohippus? . It did,
and was. - It 'took five periods) of
r'nit, for th Viorsrv tft" evolute into
a. '!-, it le trtitav
Husbands Come Too.
Husbands come to the reference
room and look up the questions for
their wives. Hired girls look up th
answers after they have done the
dishes at night.
The librarians at first thought they
would compile answers to all the
questions and . pass them out to all
comers. Then the idea came to them!
that it would be more educational
for each person seeking the answers
to look them op himself. Only when
a seeker is really stuck and in trou
ble will the librarians aid.. This was
the idea The Bee had in mind when
the contest was launched. To spread
knowledge among its readrs and pay
them while they w ere being educated.
The contest closes August 31, All
answers to the questionnaire must be
in by 6 p. m.
In Business Colleges
Prof. J. A. Youngstrom, president
of the American Institute of Business
Efficiency, claims that a business
college teaching shorthand, type
writing, secretarial work, bookkeep
ing, accountancy, comptometry, sales
manship, etc., should be co-educational.
For, he says, how e"!se is a boy
or girl who graduates and is sent
out to take a position in an office,
where both men and women must
mingle, to acquire that grace and
t ease of manner that not only makes
one pleasant and agreeable, but also
more desirable and efficient?
Timidity, unnecessary embarrass
ment and" inability successfully to
meet and converse with men or wom
en of opposite sex, socially or on
business subjects, are some of the
handicaps of people who have been
isolated one from the other through
out their college career. These draw
backs in themselves are frequently
responsible for mediocre careers, he
Due to these reasons, he says,
among the students of the Ameri
can Institute of Business Efficiency,
are both men and women.
Man Freezes Hands.
Plattsmouth, Neb., Aug. 7. (Spe
cial.) Frank Johnson of Louisville
had his hands frozen in midsummer
while attempting to connect a gas
drum in which the valve had become
opened to his soda fountain. The
gas escaped with such rapidity as
to create a freezing atmosphere
about his hands as he worked.

Whit Marsden's Letter Meant to
T lisi i crime It In cr i y nuf t ( t Vi "it-
dinary had happened to Dicky, the
news of which was contained in the
letter he was smoothing out, I was
sure. I was certain ot something
else also, that whatever revelation
the letter contained, I did not wish
in 1irn if rn 111 nnhliV liirrtiu'Sv
Therefore, I did not stop the car,
as he had suggested, but sent it
along at undiminished speed, speak
ing quickly, pieaaingiy, as i ciia so.
"Oh, Dicky, please! We're almost
at the farm. I'll just give these
sulphur Qindles to Mrs. Ticer
she's waiting for them, you know
and then let's go up on our hill. Vc
shan't be disturbed there, and you
can tell me all about it."
"Oh. of course, if Mrs. Ticer's
sulphur candles are of more import
ance than my affairs I" he began
ruffily, but my ear caught an intona
tion of relief beneath his crustiness,
and I knew that he in reality ap
proved my suggestion.
It's No Use-"
I did not answer him indeed, did
not speak again until we had turned
into the neglected, grass-grown
driveway of the Dacey place, had
delivered the sulphur candles to Mrs.
Ticer, and then turned the car up
an old weedy cow-patch leading
past the barn to the pasture land on
the hillside. As we reached it. I
parked the car in such a fashion that
the exquisitely etched view of- roll
ing meadows, woodland and church-spired-village,
with the oecan at th
end, should face my beauty-loving
husband and comfort him, or at
least distract his attention.
But he only gave it his unusual
tribute of a, long1, silent, admiring
look, then turned back to m; with
a gesture which savored somewhat
of actual despair. .What could
Marsden have written to make my
Peter Pan look like this?
"It's no use, Madge," Dicky said
heavily.. "The only use I can sec
for this view is for me to do it over
and over again, and go around with
the little pictures . under . my arm
peddling them. Look at thisl"
He held out the crumpled pages
of Marsden's letter to me. 1 '
"Do You Wonder?
I scanned them curiously, seeing
what I always ,sav in Marsden's
letters, a short typewritten page, dic
tated to his stenographer, for office
inspection and record, and then a
letter written in his own rather ec
centric chirography for Dicky's
eyes alone, a letter of inside expla
nation, intimtae, confidential, highly
indiscreet if it fell into certain
hands, but safe for Dicky who
counts Marsden as one of his best
friends always destroyedd bis pri
vate letters as soon as he had read
I took up the official letter first.
"My Dear Mr. Graham: I re
gret to inform you that Mr.
Pennington is not satisfied with the
illustrations you have made for his
forthcoming book, Tn That Day.
We have vainly tried in every way
to alter his decision, but he abso
lutely refuses to .consider them, say
ing that they do not correctly inter
pret the spirit of his novel. " As-you
will no doubt remember, our agree
ment provided that Mr. Penning
ton's approval was necessary for
the acceptance of the illustrations.
I wish you would come into the
office that we may talk the matter
over. Please advise if you can
come in Monday. Mr. Pennington
will be out ot the city unt.i men,
and, of course, it is netessary that
he be at the conterence. coraiany
I put the page down, looking at
my husband with a sympathetic,
frightened understanding of his feel
ing upon the receipt of the letter.
I remember so well how frankly
overjoyed Dicky had been when
Marsden had given him the Penning-
because of Marsden's personal pref
erence or friendship Marsden would
not have given nor Dicky received
anything on that basis but Pen
nington, the man of the day in book
circles, had been hunting an illus
trator, dissatisfied with the big men
who had been doing the work, and
Marsden had adroitly brought some
specimens of Dicky's work before
the great author's eyes, without a
word of comment upon them. Pen
nington had declared that they were
exactly the kind of thing' he wished,
and Dicky forthwith had been given
the work of illustrating his just
It had meant a great deal, for
Dicky while a promising and more
than ordinarily successful illustrator
has not reached the top of the
ladder, where three or four men sit
complacently but insecurely, and
this was the first time he had been
chosen to illustrate one of the books
which I had heard him dedscribe as
"top-hole things." And now, th;
illustrations over which he , had
worked so hard, had been rejected.
"Do you wonder I'm hipped?"
Dicky demanded, as my gaze met
his. "That just about means I'm
finished in this game. But just
read Marsden's private screed, and
see what damnable luck I've had."

Should the interest of a boy of
11 in reading stories of thrilling ad
venture be curbed J
Provided that the adventures of
these stories are healthy, that is to
say dependent upon courage and
guided by right, there would seem
to be no reason why a boy's interest
in reading them should be curbed.
Put withip his reach such books as
Nansen's 'Farthest North, Stanley's
Darkest Africa, or any of the va
rious accounts of the dashes for the
north and south pole.

Stenography Offers Oppor

"The young man or woman who
wants to enter business life, who
must do so without capital and who
does not know definitely in what
branch they want to specialize, would
make no mistake in choosing ste

"A good stenographer can always

"But this, however, is not the
main point. The big thing is that
stenography offers such great op

of confidence, in direct contact with

course, embracing not only short

to become sn educator, a scientist, an agricul
tural expert? Do you plan to prepare yourself for '
the strenuous battle of life by thorough special
training in any. line? There has never been a time
when such training was more essential, when its
advantages were more apparent. We live in an
era of transition and adjustment; in a world new
born after the cataclysm. Profound changes hav
been wrought. Trying times, and times of glori
ous opportunity, are Just ahead. The University
trained man or woman will approach these trials,
these opportunities, equipped with sound training
and sure knowledge. And in comparison with these
advantages, the time, the effort, the money in
volved in securing such training will count as little.
Your State University, time-honored and hallowed
in tradition, offers a well rounded education in your
chosen vocation, together with a host of pleasant
and worth while activities for your leisure hours. A
comprehensive curriculum, an unexcelled corps of
professors and instructors; athletics, debating so

Cole, advertising manager of the Gillette
Safety Razor company; Mary E. Orr, a di

Stenography placed them in positions of confidence, in contact with
big business men. They saw the "inside" of business and them
selves became big figures in the business world.
