A happy company of young society ladies
and gcntloman > left on Monday evening for
Clear lake , chapoionod by Mrs. Samuel
Burns. Those lu the party were : The
Misses Helen Smith , Nellie Burns , Mao
Burns , Mary Duryea , and the Messrs.
Holmes and Maurice Duryea , HpborfanU
Samuel Burns. The ladies will niako their
headquarters at Mr. Bums' pretty cottage ,
near , he lake , The party will not return
until August 1 , and a delightful tlmo is an
Xlio NcRllKon Shirt.
"The negligee shirt has como to stay. "
The words wcro uttered by the head sales
man of the gents1 furnishing goods in ono of
Omaha's vast clothing establishments.
"It la both sensible and comfortable , " bo
continued , "and consequently meets favor
with the male portion of humanity , Llko all
innovations , it was slow at first in gaining a
foothold , but now that it is established ,
every season the merchants double ibo sales
of tbo preceding ono. Already this summer
wo have sold just twlco as much as wo did
nil last year. They are Indispensable for
outings and many men will wear no other
kind of salrt during the heated term. "
"But , " asked the reporter , "aro the flan
nel shirts really cooler than those of linen 1"
"Woll , " said tha salesman frankly , "many
think they arc , but they are not. However ,
they are much more comfortable , \Vhcn a
gentleman dons a woolen shirt for the sum
mer. ho casts his vest aside and of course
feels much cooler without that close-fitting
garment , His high collar also drops into
innocuous desuetude and there is consequent
ly a fueling of relief at the throat. In place
of suspenders ho dons a bolt , The woolen
shirt hangs losoly on the greater portion of
the body and a feeling of coolness and com
fort is thu result. The man then swears by
the woolen shirt and you cant't divorce him
from it.
"Iteally a linen shirt would be cooler than
a woolen ono if worn in the same way with
out a vest , but it would soon become -
como soiled and besides it docs
not absorb the perspiration as does the
woolen ono. Hero is the Madras linen
shirt , " and the salesman opened a box con
taining some handsome check shirts of very
light material. "Tlieso also are cooler than
the woolen shirt , but like the ordinary linen
they will not absorb perspiration. "
"Hero are some shirts made of silk and
linen , and also seine of pure silk. These
are really beautiful and were made for that
class of men who object to the common neg
ligee shirt because it is not dressy enough.
But the great need was met in this handsome -
some combination , " and the salesman
throw dovm as pretty a shirt as
was over contrived for mortal tnan.
It was white cashmere with lovely silk
striped through it , and was handsome enough
to wear with a full dress suit.
"This , " continued the salesman , "moots
the need of the hour , as it combines the use
ful and the beautiful. While the silk and
linen combinations have sold well , these silk
mixtures with cashmeres have especially
proved a great card. Manufacturers gener
ally invested in them , but not very largely ,
anticipating o. fair sale , but touching them
with the caution usual with novelties and ex
treme things. The outcome is that the mar
ket is entirely cleaned out and the great pub-
lin will have to wear the very tasteful flan
nels which are to bo had in such profusion.
' The tennis sash which is an important
adjunct to the ncellgce shirt , is coming into
public favor more slowly. It is worn gener
ally throughout tho. east , but is rather too
startling an innovation for the west. A pe
culiar characteristic of the average young
westerner is a morbid dread of being called
a "dude , " and for this reason ho is slow to
don any now style of garment if it is particu
larly handsome. So ho admires the tennis
sash from a distance , aud straps on a belt in
stead. The only way in which the sash will
bo introduced hero will bo through young
men who came from cast. "
