I elve them all that's In my heart:
I serve them on my knees,
And strive with deferential art
Their slightest whim to please.
Mr generous cheer they all enjoy,
My Inn they freely praloe;
Yet each will call her posting boy.
And mount her traveling chaise.
They pause, they lilt like fickle birds,

Between the visiting women, the bridge
clubs, the dressmaker and ' getting the
J'oung people off to school, society has been
about as busy as other people these past
even days, and though each week brings
more and more of a formal nature, It Is not
expected that there will be anything of
particular consequence now until after the
Ak-Sar-Bcn festivities. Of course, there
will be no end of smaller affairs during' the
week of the horse show, for there are to
be scores of visitors In town, and the local
' ' fushlonabls folk will see to it that they are
veil entertained. And in the meantime
things promise to be Interesting enough In
a small way.
There Is a story being persistently circu
lated just now to the effect that the stun
rlngest and most talked about wardrobe
that Is to appear at the horse show Is In
reality the wedding trousseau of the young
woman, who Is to marry an army officer,
and aha has cleverly used the horse show
to divert the suspicion of her too-interested
i friends. The trousseau Includes hats,
crowns and wraps for every evening of the
week, and theso. It Is said, are to eclipse
everything else there. But, after all. If
society has meant half It hu said about
this very Interesting younr woman ever
, since she haa ma-la hr debut. It should
Hot be ao greatly surprised.
. And speaking of gown the borae show
( promises to accomplish one result, for the
winter at least, whern everything else has
failed. If there Is one thing In which
i Omaha society has been democratic It has
been In the, matter of dress. There are few
cities of Its sise where one finds the fash
ions bis set more blissfully Indifferent to
conventionalities In ouerj matters than In
'Omaha, and while in the main such Inde
pendence may be commendable. It not In
N frequently happens that It Is carried too
far, until the, city has come to have the
reputation of not being a' dressy place.
There Is no place where this lark Is more
conspicuous than at the theater, though
many a hostess of an affair complimentary
to some out-of-town guest has had occa
sion to regret It, while many a visiting
' woman has returned to her home to shake
, : the wrinkles out of her more dressy gowns
fur the first time since they were packed
, when she set out on . her visit. , But the
horse show promises to change all this, for
the women are doing all that could be de
sired In this respect, and, having the
; gowns, they will doubtless wear them, and
I the prospect is .that society will be better
dressed this winter than for many a sea-
