Clapps Millinery Opening
Among the seasonable events of the
city are the millinery openings at tho
II C Clapp dry goods establishment
This fall their showing bad added inter
est from the fact that their millinery
and ready to wear department had been
greatly enlarged and their display cor
respondingly increased to meet this hap
py circumstance
Their formal dates were Friday and
Saturday afternoons and evenings and
the attendance and patronage were evi
dently most satisfactory The displays
offered in these lines were of such up to
date character such tasteful stylish
ness and the showings so rich and num
erous in all lines as to receive many ex
pressions of pleasure and surprise
They would have been creditable to a
city of much larger population During
the opening the music was the produc
tion of those two favorites Mrs E O
Vahue and Mrs W B Mills with
whom some oanary birds vied in the
production of melody
The decorations were suitably autum
nal and the effect was most attractively
pretty and sufficient
