Home Millinery
The millinery school which was
held by the Cass County Farm Bu
reau at Weeping Water was a success
in every way. Eleven delegates were
present and all seemed interested in
the work. First, instructions were
given on how to select becoming and
attractive hats. Different types of
figures, faces, coloring of hair and
skin were studied and why some
women can wear certain shapes and
others can not. Another interesting
phase of the work was that of cut
ting paper patterns, trying them on
and remodeling them until they suit
ed the face and figure.
Renovation and remodeling of old
shapes and material was also taken
up. Many old hats were remodeled
and made to look like new. Also,
many new and becoming hats were
made for both women and children,
all of which the owners may well
be proud.
Friday, March 10th, an interesting
style show was held. Miss Harris
gave a short talk on the history and
cost of hats. Fiften hats were on
display and more than 30 women at
tended the style show. The total
cost of these hats was $33.69. a sav
ing of about -69.24 to the women.
Many of these hats were remodeled
but over half were entirely new.
All of the women returned home
with the fruits of their labors tucked
away in a band box determined to go
home and pass on the information
gained at the school to the rest of
the women who could not attend the
millinery schook .We expect to hear
from these six communities in the
near future and we know the reports
will be worth while.

Yesterday afternoon Mrs. George
Detloff of Omaha, formerly Mrs.
Florence Newton of this city, was the
victim of a very painful accident at
the Leavenworth laundry in Omaha.
Mrs. Detloff was engaged in some
work there and in so doing had her
left hand and arm caught in some of
the machinery resulting in the frac
ture of the bones of the arm and the
breaking of the wrist. The Injured
lady was hurried to a hospital where

Las Cassadas, with books, she found
a bare room 24x36 not even a black
board installed, but 26 pupils all
sizes and colors waiting for her. Af
ter enrolling the children, she asked
each one to bring a bottle of water
and a box to sit on in the afternoon,
but boxes were scarce and most of
them set on the floor for over three
weeks. An American lady kindly
loaned her a chair and small table
for herself; in six weeks her school
showed a daily attendance of 119
pupils. Her school closed at 2:15
each day, but often it was seven o'

to live) due to washouts, wrecks,
