SOCIETY TARES ON NEW LIFE
Had of Vecatin Tim 8eU Local Puli

While for the Smart Folks
( Omaha Thlr
Ther wa a general quickening of
Dmaba'e fashionable life last week that en
tourages the hope that society la going to
rake up after Its long summer lethargy and
realty do something worth while. There
Was really a great deal going on, that Is,
for this time of year, more In fact than had
been chronicled for a whole month before.
To begin with, people are beginning to
eome back to town again and In such num
bers as promise to soon restore the long
disorganized ranks of the fashionables and
bike things possible. These borne comings,
together with the cool evenings, hare In
duced a number of Informal Indoor affairs,
while the presence of several visiting girl
has occasioned a number of afternoon af
fairs, luncheons and dinner of more or less
And then there was the Craln-Wakeley
redding, an event In Itself worthy the at
tention of society even those who were not
invited because the bride chose to change
ber mind and have a home wedding Instead
of waiting until October, as was the orig
inal Intention (according to the very few
Who knew anything about It before the en
gagement was announced), and closing her
career as a leader of the amarteat and most
exclusive set with a wedding of the kind
generally satisfactory, to society. But then,
It's a bride's privilege to change her mind,
and of course, everybody can't be Invited
to a home wedding, so society has found
Soros satisfaction In being able to contribute
this charming young woman to Bprlng
fceld's smart set, as It cannot keep her It
nlt. CThe Interstate tennis tournament, on all
eek at the Field club, practically con
densed the doings of ths younger set, and
some of the others, too, within the bound
aries of that Institution. With their pro
verbial hospitality, ths members of the
Shield club put aside all recollection of a
certain time not so awfully long ago when
certain members of the golf contingent of
the Country club failed to treat some of
their own golfers as courteously as they
might, considering that they happened to
be their guests, and Invited the Country
club people over for the week. Yes. they
came and enjoyed the royal treatment they
received, and all of the girls came, too, and
there were not very many dinners and
luncheons at the Country club last week In
consequence. Everybody was there and
flirted and danced and gossiped and said
aweet nothings to each other and Incident
ally watched the game.
The summer girl with her gorgeous sun
shade and stunning gown and "early" hat
of white felt or some other clotn ot sub
dued shade that by the way Is wonder
fully fetching and restful after vivid green
veil which we all must admit, now that It
Is passing, was awfully trying to half the
women who wore It In spite of Its Im
mense popularity. And there was the
summer man, too. In his summer suit and
Panama hat, presenting an altogether ele
gant and Glbonesque appearance as he
strolled about singly and In groups in a
mors or less amiable frame of mind, tor,
to tell the truth, the tennis men were the
lions of the 'hour and the local society
man's noss 4as somewhat out ot Joint In
consequence', save In cases where the vis
iting men were not sufficiently numerous
to go round. The chaperone was there,
too and thereby hangs a tale that these
Very estimable ladles do not countenance
at all, that the debutantes smlls about
and that makes the men fairly glare when
ever It Is mentioned, but It Is going the
rounds, nevertheless, and has to do with
certain little Indiscretions that society has
very charitably called fada.
And then there hr.s been the Musical
festival, which of courae soulety saw prop
erly "opened" and really enjoyed, Judg
ing by the numbers in which they attended
and promise to attend.
The local society man, and we are told
the society man la general, especially the
college boys and those who have sum
mered at the places where fsshlonable
people congregate, has a new fad that Is
truly extraordinary and easily the tri
umph of all the affectations that society
spasmodically adopts and generously for
gives In each other the Ch-abley walk.
There have been several cases of It about
towa for the last month, but It is only
within the fortnight that It has developed
In numbers. Like the grandeur of ths
Yellowstone, It "deflo description and has
to be seen to be appreciated." To the
casual observer it would seem that the
masculine half of upperdom had suddenly
gone lame with a limp that Is a cross be
tween that produced by some temporary
a fleet ion of the hip and the agony inci
dental to tight shoes, combined with a
forward bend of the body and a long stride
i that gives to Its devotee a truly remark
able appearance that Is only Increased by
ths popular style of summer suit as pre
scribed by the fashionable tailor.
We have received from across the water
a copy ot the bon ton English plctoral
weekly, the King, containing a atrlklng full
length portrait of Mrs. Frank Morris Avery,
well known In this city, resplendent
la the presentation gown In which she
mads her bow before the king. Mrs. Avery
will be remembered as a former Omaha girl
who lived here with her mother, Mrs, Clark,
until grown to womanhood and also as the
bride-to-be of an Omaha man. Lieutenant
William O. Doaoe, an admirer of her child
hood day. Front her picture, friends ot
Mrs. Avery cannot help remarking that she
is growing constantly more handsome and
should she, after her coming marriage favor
omana with her presence even for occv
slonal vlsita, as In the past, ahe will con
slltute a constellation scintillating through
tae waoie social firmament.
