Uundy konslnglon brouo the social Ice very
ptoacutilly nnd wore nn carnc&t of what Is to
conio when the contentions for the laver of
Mrs. Vex 1'opiill nro over. Anil this recalls
what N. P. Willis wrote during the mil
day * of the campaign preceding General
Tayior's election , although ivhat nppllcnllon
the words may have upon tlio social patjo
mav not ba clearly dlsccrnable. Mr. Willis
said : "A fnturo president Is practically In
ballot boxu ; ami that womb of authority Is
now onlv 10 bo nwullod bv the Patorual ma
jority \\lth the tumult over , I ho city re-
turni to peace , Industry and prosperity. "
At the tlartman rcrnptioti there were half
n dozen candidates for political ofllcos proa-
out nnd during tlio ina/cs of waltz ono of
them was heard to sav to the lau'v with whom
lie was dancing. "Now see that Mr. L. casts
his vota for inc. " Tlio cloak rooms were
chitnircd Into debating clubs for the nonce
niid Politics ab'ovo stairs was qulto as proml-
nonl as hoclcty below. Hut all this gnus to
allow that times Imvo changed slnco Mr.
Willis1 days anil the blending of political ,
literary nnd social elements has been made a
fact , for politicians of nil shades of opinion
Imvo had their Innings in the October maga
zines and as the world grows olucr literature

Society will prcet with ulensuro tbo an-
nnuncciucnt that the Assembly is to bo re

moro successful organization for tbo uses In-
tondcd than the Assembly proved. Tbo

While the social world lia been slow to
throw off the lethargy of the summer davs
nnd the nbscnco of big functions generally
remarked , society was permitted to pot out
Its best clothes Friday evening , the reception
given by Mr. ana Mrs. Chris llartman at
their magnificent homo at-Thirty-fourth and
Kamam streets attracting tbo swells in largo
numbers. Among the beautiful homes in
Omaha the Iinrtman resloenco Is most admired -
mired , having been built seemingly witn-
a view to the giving of such liirgo affairs as
that of Friday nicht. From the oulsido ono
can hardly form a correct idea of the roomi
ness within , big , wide apartments , with
pretty alcoves making totp-a-totcs almost ,
Impossible to resist. The lirst floor is devoted -
voted to the grand salon , a handsome npart-
inontoxiUisitely | decorated In neutral colors ,
the library , u musto room off , dining room
nnd breakfast room , all thuao hnvlug
been sot apart for the uses of
the reception. Below .stairs Is a
Iliioly arranged billiard room. The second
story contains the sleeping apartments , while
in the third Is a ball room extending Urn
\vholo length of tbo house and hero , after 10
o'clock , the cuosls , and particularly iho
younger sot , were permitted to danco. The
room was linolv decorated with llowers and
nmllax , anil with myriad lights the scene
\viis suniclcntly untieing to please the most
dovoteil follower of Dame Fashion.
That which Impressed Itself moro thun any
ether one thing unon the minds ot the guests
present was thu lloral docoratiou which was
upon a wonderfully lavish scale. The draw
ing room , the library , the ( lining room , the
iiuiblo room , were ail a mass of color , chrys-
mithomums In all their variegated beauty
Dredomiimting and with a verity it might
liuvo been called a "chrysanthemum recep
tion. " In point of fact these harbingers of
the gradual decay ot the year ran not and
the rooms looked us If tbo.so llamos of
color worn natiiru's own day fireworks.
There were Jardlnlorcs Illlcd with mugnill-
nout blossoms , mantels were banked
with thorn , the bays were canopied
with amllnx relieved with hundreds of
those llowers which have become the fash
ionable fad of iho season. There were portieres
tieres of .sinllax , giving a pleasing rope ef
fect , while the bnnu was curtained off from
the auoslH by a wealth of stnlla * and yellow
chrysanthemums aitisttcully arranged.
Jlverywlicro oim turned the mikado's favor
ite llower was noticeable , yellow , white ,
purple , brown , a veritabla chrysanthemum
bhow. The punch bowl stood In tbo dining
room and n host of pretty girls uddi-il their
brightness and brilliancy to the
nectar which they served. Refreshments
were served In the billiard loom , the table
itself , with its false top , being tiansformoi !
into an ornamented banquet board , with n
lilgh pvnimid of fruits in the center , tlio
edge being outlined with Minhix mid roses.
l''ulry lamps were every where and I ho effect
was surprlslnclv dimming. The caterer
also added greatly to the plcasuro of the
iuoaU by tendering prettily covered lap
boards , which permitted iho serving of
refreshment ) * in u much morn cnjovablo

Never in the history of the furniture trade were prices as low as they arc today , Goods are made better and slyles ard
hcmdsomer than ever before.
We have just purchased a complete new stock and - in
now coming- are being marked , according to our new policy ,
at the lowest possible percentage of profit.
The large volume of business we have clone this fall has proven to us that the price is the leading sentiment of the
time , and wo have adoptwl permanently the system of markiug everything at one-half our former margins , thus
making the increased sales more than offset ; the decrease in profits.
This statement means exactly what it says , and customers cannot possibly make a mistake in price in buying at *
cur store. .
All goods marked in plain figures.
