Gossip of the Clubs.
The well known tendency of Omaha to
clubs of late years has been illustrated by
the new departure of the social organization
known as the Metropolitan club. For several
years it has thrived under its present man
agement aud object , but it has realized
the idea of many member who desired some
thing besides a mere hull in which to hold
monthly dances. The club has now secured
the two top floors in Kuony's building , on the
southwest corner of Fourteenth nnd Dodge
streets , for a number of years. These they
will change in the most approved style of
club rooms , according to plans suggested by
Mendelssohn & Lawriennd based upon Ideas
suggested by some of tlio handsomest quar
ters in Chicago. These will bo elaborately
furnished at an expense of not less tlmn
S-1,000. The Alctropolitan club has always
been one of the strongest social organizations
in the city , and the new departure will give
its members greater facility to enjoy them
selves in a metropolitan manner.
