Merchants' Unll ,
The wealth of decorations lavished on Ex
position hall and the prodigality of expense
preparation for the llm annual ball of the
merchant pi luces of Oniuuu on Wednesday
evening was the marvel of the
week , The hall was beautifully decked
with red , whlto and blue garlands. The
great dancing arena was covered with can
vas , while the epcitators' rostrum on the
north sldo of ttio hall was a profusion of
palms aud other tropical plants. Cooling

to make it delicious , ana other skilfully pre
pared jolreshmonts wore served by polite

time. There was no stiffness or formality Of
manner that Is so often the bane of great
social gatherings nnd everybody came to
enjoy himself and herself and succeeded.

of the occasion , nnd the mem
bers played as though inspired-
The programmes wore unique and will be
prized by the ladles who attended the Ball as
a pretty souvenir of the occasion. A mono
gram in rod , xvhito , black nnd gold , and a
picture of Omaha on one loaf of the outside
with a picture of an ideal ball such us was
the merchants1 , on the other.
