Like Puck , Harrlman Would Have
Girdled the Earth.
New York , Fob. 4. "If E. H. Ilarri-
man had lived ho would have had a
railroad around the world. This was
one of his great ambitions. Another
was to sec the completion of the Pan
ama canal. If the government had not
taken up the task of constructing this
great waterway he would have built
it himself. "
Those two secrets showing the extent -
tent to which the late railroad man's
ambitions were leading him at the
time of his death , were revealed lasl
night by Otto II. Kalm of Kahn , Loeb
& Co. , who was closely associated with
Mr. Harrlman for more than ten years
The statement was made after the
close of Mr. Kahn's formal address at
Finance Forum and in response to a
question from one of his hearers. In
reply to another question he said :
"Mr. Harrlman did not , however
contemplate controlling the entire rail
road system of the United States , and
he was of the opinion that a concen
trntion of railroad power had gone
about as far as it would go. "

The Well Dressed
New York. Feb. ! Although the
smart shops are lilted with spring and
summer fabrics , which are .supposed
o be at the highest KO early in the
season , the woman with n little sur-
ilus revenue can get a choice selec-
Ion among the first offerings nt rcn-
sonablo cost.
If one bo not ambitious to "wear
ew things first" she will , of course ,
jo able to got- the same fabrics later ,
nit there will not be so many pretty
IcHigns from which to choose.
Social conditions have changed so
radically within recent years that one
nust have , of necessity , some kind of
smart frock for afternoon , and tills
can bo used also for the restaurant
, iiul theater. The spotted muslins ,
crepes , etc. , are excellent for the pur
pose , as arc- also the figured foulards ,
which wore never so handsome as
now. Pongee Is coming into its own
igaln and there promtacB to be a con-
linuanco of the vogue for the reddish
browns , handsome dull blues , greens
and natural shades which were so
much liked season.
A spotted silk of Inexpensive design
Is among the prettiest of the frocks
designed for southern wear. It Is so
typical of the demand for chic sim
plicity that It will be sure to be among
the spring favorites. The skirt has a
deep fold of plain silk matching the
background of the dotted material ,
which in this instance Is dawn grey
figured with gentian blue. The sim
ple bodice Is trimmed with a band of
Its own material , which is carried
around the llguro about the bustllne ,
while buttons and fine braid add to the
effectiveness of the decorative scheme.
The frock of crepe or of sheer stuff
with straight or slightly draped skirt
weighted down to clinging lines de
spite its slight fullness and with some
simple shoulder and sleeve drapery
forming the corsage above the empire
girdle is charming if well handled , and
the satin fourreau with empire tunic
of sheer material has innumerable at
tractive phases.
The empire lines have gained gen
eral acceptance for both afternoon and
evening frocks , and this opens the way
for delightfully chic and youthful ef
fects , though It opens the way also
for extravagance of truly first empire
audacity. Simplicity sweet simplic
ity is not the exclusive feature of the
debutant's frocks by any means , for
her old sisters , and even her mother ,
If she be youthful and comely , may
and docs go in for the simpler effects.
Some of the best models In pongee
are designed for matrons who like to
keep pace with their daughters as far
as being smartly "gowned is concerned.
A design in natural color has the skirt
draped with a sort of panel effect that
extends above the waistline at the
front and is smartly stitched down to
the bodice. The effect is very much
like the panel idea which made It pos
sible for gowns of ever so many parts
to bo called "one-piece" frocks a sea
son or two ago , but nothing has ever
yet appeared that looks better.
An apron tunic Is what they call this
latest arrangement , for the front is
narrowed away to almost nothing.
The bodice is finished rather in Gib
son than in the prevailing kimono ef
fect at the shoulders , but it is hand
some and the trimmings of dark satin
at the neck and sleeves make a splen
did contrast with the clear , soft tones
of the pongee.
The kimono sleeve retains its vogue
and is much used both In woolen , silk
and lingerie frocks , though for tub
bing purposes it is an abomination
and not as successful as linen or soft
er materials. And by the way , linen
frocks and materials multiply in the
shops , the soft ramie being first fa
vorite , and the one-piece linen frocks
modeled more or less upon the lines
of the one-piece silk or serge frocks ,
as generally worn under fur coats this
winter , are extremely pretty. Like
the winter models , they are very sim
ple , straight and narrow in line , us
ually a trifle short of waist and elab
orated only by some smart bit of trim
ming about the throat and as a sleeve
finish , and perhaps by buttons and
loops , a bit of braiding. In linens ,
however , those simple little frocks
have the advantage of color schemes
and contrasts more varied than the
dark tones of the winter models.
The new hats , which always follow
closely upon new materials , have made
their appearance and one must admit
to a little disappointment if anything
very startling was expected. Perhaps !
when May comes the Parision mil
liners , or their New York rivals will '
have something different to show , but
the Riviera and Palm Beach models '
are Interesting , even If not exactly au
thoritative In their prophecy. One haste I
to concede a certain familiar air about
them , a semblance of old friends mas
querading in new finery ; for the
shapes are the shapes to which wo
men have become accustomed during
the winter. Only the materials speak
summer and novelty.
Then , too , the chances are that :
when spring comes these shapes will '
still bo in order , though there will
probably bo new things added. The 1
models do not change with lightning
and radical rapidity nowadays , and
frocks seem likely to be but little mod
ified this spring. Many of the straw
hats are faced with velvet , and Indeed
some are so heavily swarthed with
marabout , velvet and the like until , at
first glance they look quite like winter
models. In New York women are al
ready wearing spring millinery , being
tired of their winter hats and reachIng -
Ing out for something fresh and new.
Flower Tiats are shown Jn various
small shapes and In wonderful color-
Ings. One smart little toque is of I
black crin , something of the familiar r
. It fits the head
ding-a-ling shape. very
closely and has a brlnl of velvet In n
curious red , with a purplish bloom.
Another affair In black combines a
touch of white In the slmpo of a pompon
pen of marabout , with a single quill
emerging from the pompon.
lllg picturesque shapes of black ma-
line trimmed In plumes or egrets look
much like the big winter hats at n
distance , but , of course , are nlrlly
adapted to summer wear , and there
are other big shapes In mallnes with
wide brim , very slightly rolled and
with for trimming a huge bow of the
mallno posed on the top of the crown ,
a little toward the back , and spreading
out toward the sides , its soft cloudy
folds softening the outlines of the low
rounded crown.
Ulack velvet has Invaded the chil
dren's realm , not only for party frock
use. but for drossy afternoon and
street wear , and It is so tremendously
becoming that one is disposed to ap
prove its use. Very often gay Bulga
rian or oriental embroidery relieves
the black , as does a collar or little
guiinpo of good lace , and again hand-
Homo silk braid is the trimming and
Httlo gold buttons relieve the black.
Play clothes , school clothes , etc. , are
simple enough , hut those party frocks !
Ono can not deny that they are dainty
and pretty , though many of them do
seem a trlllo pretentious. The filmy
white things , smothered In lace and
embroidery are most In demand.
May Hire Secretary.
The Norfolk Commercial club may
get a paid secretary who will put In
ills eijtlro time on work for Norfoll'c
and the Commercial club. This mat
ter was thoroughly discussed at a
meeting of the directors of the club

rooms of the Nebraska National bank.

at the last meeting of the directors ,
although willing to serve , is In favor
of a paid secretary. A committee waa

maintaining a paid secretary and they

gate how such a secretary Is paid and

Plan for Alfalfa Show.
The directors also discussed thor
oughly J. W. Dletrlck's communication
about the Northwestern alfalfa school
which will bo brought to Norfolk on
February 21. A committee was ap
pointed to secure hall room for the
alfalfa exhibit.

short report and were Instructed to

teenth street road now. This purchase
is made to enable all material to been

warm enough to commence work.
The Judge's Crime.
A prisoner , n faded , buttered speci
men of mankind , on whose haggard
face , deeply lined with the marks of
dissipation , there still lingered faint
reminders of better days long past ,
stood dejected before a New York po
lice judge. "Where are you from ? "
asked the magistrate. "From Boston , "
answered the accused. "Indeed , " said
the Judge "Indeed , yours Is a sad
face , and yet you don't seem to thor
oughly realize how low you have
sunk. " The man started as If struck.
"Your honor does me an Injustice , " he
said bitterly. "The disgrace of arrest
for drunkenness , the mortification of
being thrust Into a noisome dungeon ,
the publicity and huinlliatloji of trial
in a crowded and dingy courtroom I
can bear , but to be sentenced by a po
lice magistrate who splits his Infini
tives-that Is Indeed the last blow. "

Method Is the ver.v hinge of busi
ness , and th"iv Is no method without
punctuality. Punctuality Is Important
because It sulnerves the pence and
good temper of a family. Calmness of
mind , which It produces. Is another
advantage of punctuality. A disor
derly man Is always in a hurry , lie
has no time to speak to you because
he Is going elsewhere , and when he
gets there he Is too late for Ills busi
ness or he must hurry away before he
can finish it.
