In the past as a sendoffi for some of
Omaha's newly married, but none have sur
passed the demonstration that attended the
departure of a young society couple whose
. wedding was the fashionable feature of last
Wednesday. Owing to bereavement In the
family of the groom the wedding was quiet
and the guests at the church Included only
the relatives, who were also the only guests
at the wedding breakfast that followed at
the home ot 4he bride on Park avenue. As
- result many of the best friends of the
., young couple had no part In the wedding
festivities, and so they planned a little of
, fair ot their own. All went well with the
unsuspecting brids and groom until their
' carriage had gotten well down town enroute
to the station when It suddenly stopped-and
an Italian with a large hand organ and
monkey mounted to the box beside the
driver, and then hurried on while the street
musician energetically ground out a pro
gram ef popular airs to which his little red
coated pet did one acrobatic stunt after an
other on top ot the carriage. Protest from
the occupants was in vain, for even had
the driver chose to hear It would have been
Impossible for the din of the organ and
the clamor of the crowd ot street urchins
that soon ran shouting beside and behind
the carriage. Pedestrians stopped, office
windows were thrown up and people rushed
out of the stores to see what It was all
, about, but the gay party hurried on. At
the Union station, the organ grinder, who
bad been welt paid, stuck conscientiously
to his boslness and continued his serenade
Just Inside the vestibule of the carriage en
trance.' "There'l Be a Hot Time In the Old
Town" wailed the organ as the bride and
groom, followed by, those who had served
as attendants and ushers at the wedding,
made a dash through the crowd that pelted
them wlta rice aa they fled across the wait
Ing room and tracks to the Pullman only
; to find that they "Would have to face the
music which pursued them on the run
until their stateroom, could be unlocked.
The musician continued the serenade while
Jocko walked 'up with the others to offer
his hand1 )n congratulation, and when at
last the train pulled out be mounted the
organ and waved bia little red. cap until It
was out ot sight.
While Joy or excitement has a wide, va
riety of effects upon people the agitation
of one of last week's bridegrooms occa
sioned a little prelude to his wedding that
did not get Into the society columns with
the other details of the marriage, or even

guests were all assembled, the bride quite
ready and the clergyman watting, it lacked
lees than halt an hour of I o'clock before
the ceremony finally took place. Of course
everyone wondered , at the delay and an
air of uneasiness began to pervade the
Company when It became known to a few
that the bridegroom had not arrived. Trie
bride was walking ths floor of her room
and when, unable to bear the suspense any
longer, her uncle, on the verge of tears, re
tired from the parlor, the guests began" to
speculate In awed whispers as to the cause
of the young man's tardiness. An accident
or sudden Illness were suggested by some,
while others discussed his career as teller
of one of the large banks ot Omaha. The
fact that his family bad also failed to ma
terialise only added to the suspense that
had nearly reached consternation when
ths long-delayed and very necessary party
to ths wadding arrived and explained that
his carriage having failed' to come he had
been put to the necessity of .getting an
other and had experienced not a little dif
ficulty. There Is another story afloat, how
ever, that emanated from the stable where
the carriage was originally ordered, and It
Is to the effect that the young 'man had
ordered his carriage for Thursday Instead
of Wednesday evening.

WC'JAl II CLUB m CHARITY
Borne of the women of the Hanscom Park
school district had a little experience last
week that, while it was a great disappoint
ment, will doubtless prove as valuable In
the end as though It had resulted other
wise. Blace Miss Lillian Littleflold, who
had been principal of Park school since It
was built, took a leave of absence early
last winter. Miss Susan Eveleth, teacher of
the tlgMh grade, haa served In tier place
and when Miss Llttlefleld's death oc
casioned the election of a new principal
the majority of Park school patrons have
favored the election of Miss Eveleth be
cause of her wide acquaintance with the
conditions and .needs of the district and
her ability, proven during her years of
service as eighth grade teacher and later
as acting principal. This desire has been
repeatedly expressed to members of the
Board of Education, but no formal request
wss undertaken until last week, when sev
eral representative women ot the district
formed a committee to meet next day and
formulate a petition which was to be cir
culated for signatures of ths patrons of
the district and sent to ths board before
the teachers election Monday evening. Of
the five committee women, however, only
two materialised next day, messages being
received from the other three that It would
be Impossible for them to take ny further
part In the project. Upon Investigation It
developed that obstacles had arisen In the
form of the husbands of the women who,
while they heartily approved of Miss Eve
leth's election, had encountered political
opposition from other men of the district
who, as supporters of the Funkhouser fac
tion of the Board of Education, must glvs
their support to another principal, now of
one of the north side schools, who. It Is
said, has been promised the place.
' C. B. Hsyward and M. J. Kennard, both
of the Seventh ward, are accused by the
women of starting the opposition. The
feeling is particularly hard, owing to the
fact that neither Mr. Hay ward nor Mr.
Kennard have children In Pork school now.
Coming as the opposition did, es a com
plete surprise and at such a late day, and
finding them unorganised, the women con
cluded to drop the matter until the time of
ths next school board election. !
One of the unique reports of state work
presented at the St Louis biennial was

and that means we shall continue to admire
and appreciate the ways of other people
and still prefer our own, feeling that dif
ferent ways ars not necessarily better
Truly this mutually satisfactory arrange
ment Is an admirable state of affairs that
recalls Josephine Daskam's now celebrated
advice to the "Pilgrim Mothers." "If It
comes to a choice between your privileges
and your rights," she said, "hang onto
your privileges and let your rights go
you'll get mors." There ars women who
make their way and win their dues by
sheer ability and persistence, but the com
moner experience Is that ths woman who
gets what she wants, wins It by grace
rather than by strength. The most valu
able poasesslon a normal woman can ac
quire is a sultablo and satisfactory man
nothing else Is quite so serviceable in pro
moting the fulfillment of her destiny and
her content, while it Is In process of ful
fillment." The men of North Carolina have
the reputation of being chivalrous and their
women of being charming, and surely Mrs.
Patterson's report ' would, seem to prove
that they really are exceptional In these
The withdrawal of Mrs. Robert Burdotte
from the candidacy for president of ths
General Federation was one of the most
perplexing preliminaries to the St Louis
biennial, especially to those club women
who have known Mrs. Burdette's ambition
to hold that office If the convention would
give It to her. The explanation of her
withdrawal Is therefore most welcome. Her
duties at home are too numerous to admit
of her assuming any additional responsi
bility. She has recently built for her home
city, Pasadena, Ool., a splendidly equipped
maternity hospital and is at ths head of
Its board of managers, and pays dally vis
Its to the Institution. Mrs. Burdette Is
also an active- member of ths California
Humane society, besides belonging to a
woman's club or so. But her newest work
and her duty that stands chiefly In the
way of her undertaking any further Gen
eral Federation work is her Interest In
the new Baptist church of Pasadena, of
which her husband Is pastor. The Institu
tional features of this church are already
too well known to need further explana
tion and It Is said that Mrs. Burdette has
been largely Instrumental In their exten
sion. The rumor that she has given up
club work altogether Is scarcely grounded,
however. She is too valuable a worker in
the club world and too conscientious and
loyal to her own sex to withdraw her sup
port where It Is so muib needed, and her
withdrawal at this tlmw and for such a
reason had only tended to Increase the
host of friends that she has made by her
visits to the various statss.
