Mrs. John Irvln, 2218 Paul street. Is out

oven as a safety deposit vault.
Mrs. Irvln Is the owner of a gasoline
oven, which has not been In use by her
family for several months, but has been
borrowed a number of times by the sev
eral neighbors. Saturday afternoon Mrs.
Irvln was down town and Mrs. Herman
of 1419 North Twenty-second street sent
her daughter over to the Irvln home to
get the oven for the purpose of doing her
Sunday baking. The child could not carry
It and she eullsted the services of two
small boys In the neighborhood to assist
her. The boys were more than ordinarily
rough with their load and a number of
times the door was thrown open, but
finally the oven was landed at Mrs. Her
man's door. Upon arriving home from her
shopping tour Mrs. Irvln noticed the oven
gone and forthwith made Inquiries and
learned the whereabouts of her bank, and
upon investigation It was learned that the
money was missing.
It Is supposed to have been lost while
the boys were carrying the ovn between
the two houses. The police station was
notified and Officer Dan Baldwin was de
tail to ascertain whether or not the
money had been actually lost or stolen,
and upon Investigation he holds the two
boys altogether blameless. .
Mrs. Irvln Is a poor woman and has been
saving the money to buy the wlnter'a coal.

AJI Klada of Slants Tailed Off for the
Amusement of Those Attending,
the Women Participating
It was accounted tha best gymkhana
given at the Country club and the men and
women who arranged It especially the
women were pleased to an unbelleveable
A disgustingly Impolite breexe swept
down from the northwest over the club
house and the pretty grounds. Whenever
It could find a speck of dust the wind
picked it up and cast it In charming eyes
nd delicate shell-like ears or spilled It
over clothes that simply made one gasp
Ith admiration. The air had the first
nip of autumn, a downright palatable
twang, too, that made a light wrap a thing
of Joy and running here and there so as
not to miss anything, extremely desirable.
The gymkhana was Introduced to Omaha
two years ago and everyone knows that
It Is Just an effort to let out nonsense and
let lovely gowns be seen. So well nave
these alms had been accomplished at the
Country club that one might as soon think
of turning the golf links Into a potato
patch as to mention saying good bye
gymkhana. Those who saw tho other local
gymkhanas say that this one beat them
In every way brought more people out,
had more Interest In the events and pro
duced more fun out of the whole thing.
They sought to prove this by remarking
that dlnnner was served to 2w guests,
where but 235 sat last year, the latter num
ber being the record of the club In enter
taining at one time. How 2S0 persons were
seated In the dining room only the stew
ards knew and no one- dared to ask them.
Radeness of tha Wind.
All this success, too, In the face of that
nasty wind which was so very naughty
that Mrs. Arthur Gulou, who seemed to be
bossing about every Job on the reserva
tion and doing it exceptionally well, dis
carded her hat and wrapped her head and
features ud In a thick white veil. She
had more courage than most of the other
women or less vanity It were better to
leave the decision to conjecture ror not
one of the others dared remove the plumed
and laced .creations that helped to grace
the scene. But most of thera had to resort
to veils. Interest was too Intense In the
games to keep more than a few women In
sung corners, and damage to costume and
complexion or no, they sallied out and saw
all that was going.
The Country club grounds have looked
prettier In the flowering time of the year,
before nature had whispered the first word
of farewell and dismissal to the grass and
the leaves and the blossoms, but what
verdure lacked the women more than
supplied. From the time Master of Cere
monies Ben Cotton started off the auto
mobile parade until tho last spool of
paper ribbon had been unwound at the
cotillion march the afternoon was one of
life, activity, color, laughter, Jest and
enjoyment. He who would not enthuse and
loosen the cords of his reserve were a sad
Autos In Grand March.
This automobile parade was a bit dis
appointing In that not more than half
of the motor ear owners who promised to
be In It entered their machines. No prises
were given and the event was for the
sight's sake only. Flags of all nations
were used to decorate the cars, and rightly
Old Glory led the procession, with the aid
of the gale caressing the crew' of fair pas
sengers It sheltered. Every car was loaded
to the brim with women and their bright
finery. The procession meandered out over
the golf grounds, down In the valleys,
then on the hilltops, now behind the
bunkers and again In plain view on the
slopes. The spectacle was gay and pleas
ing. Tho parade had cars owned by these
men In It: W. D. Bancker, F. P. Klrken-
dall, Hugh McWhorter, Dick Kimball (2),
J. T. Stewart, Mrs. Herman Kountxe, J.
McGee, Mr. Austin, Art Gulou, Harry
Comings, Frank Colpetxer, O. W. Wattles
and Oould Dlett.
Nine musicians, christened the "Country
Club Band," lent sweet strains and ardor
to all the performances. These nine mu
sicians played their very souls Into their
horns. One hundred yards away you
couldn't hear a friend talk In your ear.
Their work was Immense In Its way, and
made one wonder what they would do with
Vognalr If that band ever could care for
mere Wagner muslo.
Whellbarrow Race Leads Off.
There was a wheelbarrow race with six
wheelbarrows and one young man and two
young women to each barrow. The Idea
was to carry one girl about seventy-five
yards, dump her out and pick up another
girl and take her to the finish. The bar
rows were nice large ones and plainly
marked with the name of the department
store that sent them out. The girls tucked
In their skirts and declared they enjoyed
It. The young men said they enjoyed It,
too, but had to wait awhile to get their
breaths before they could utter the words.
The lucky wheelbarrowlst got a cigarette
case. Mr. John Redlck carried It away
and earned It cleanly, too. In this race

When the Women Competed.
As soon as the exciting scenes of this
race were a thing of history the crowd
flocked to tha trees to the east of the club
house, where an archery contest had been
arranged for the women. The target was
large, the distance not more than twenty
feet and no bows were used, the women
throwing Implements like they use to In
furiate the bull for the toreador, with the
hand. Omaha's feminine society rolls were
about used up In the list of contestants
and a few other cltlea contributed of the
best they have. Thirty women failed to
place a barb In the center of the target,
when some one urged Mrs, Herman
Kountse to try her hand. Mrs. Kountse
stepped forward carelessly, glanced at the
good-natured audience and launched her
weapon with abandon. It struck fair In
the heart of the mark and a cheer went
up. Then you should have heard the re
marks: "It's always the way. ,8he doesn't need
It a bit."
"The to pas-studded belt buckle that Is
"Isn't It a shame T"
Isn't It. Wish I could win It"
And a Little Child Led. Them.
But the triumph of Mrs. Kountxe waa of
brief breath. A tiny little girl, Catherine
Beeson by name, stepped to the ribbon
and requested arrows. Her first shot struck
the green circle, which meant five points.
No one was taking any Interest In the
child's attempts. Her aeoond barb hit the
center at squarely as had that of Mrs.
Kountse. Her score waa EG and the so
ciety leader's only 50. The crowd was so
surprised It did not applaud for a few min
utes. "Oh, pshaw!" murmured a young matron
whose gown cost more than many a clerk
la paid In a year, "that's Just as bad as
heaving It go to Mrs. Kountse. Whst can
that little girl do with a belt buckle?"
Some of the women who tried their skill
In this game were: Miss Klrkendall. Mlas

Caddies In a Race.
To give society a chance to rest after
these exhausting pastimes a sack rare for
caddies was pulled off. Twenty-five lads
entered. The race was a good one because
so many of them had accidents and fell
down. FTed Larson, the smallest chap In
the lot, won out and pocketed the prlxe
Still further to afford the gymkhanaltee
an opportunity to recover the vital energy
lost In the four events held, a brief Inter
mission was taken. It was not long, how
ever, before five young men declared them
selves In fit trim to stand behind a can
vas wall and be sunflower babies while the
women tried to hit them In the face with
rubber balls. Each man put his face
through a giant sunflower wtlh the seeds
knocked out and made a monologue nctor
out of himself so as to disconcert the
marksmen. These promising Ezra Ken
dais were Mr. Gulou, Mr. Wilson Lowe,
Mr. W. D. Bancker, Mr. Samuel Burns, Jr.,
and M Ed Swobe. They looked very
comical In the sunflower frames and said
many warranted funny things. This show
was In charge of Miss Belle Dewey and
Miss Daisy Doane and was a glittering
Shot from Sunny Tennessee.
The babies seemed to be Justified In not
feeling scared until Miss Anne Browne of
Tennessee was sen approaching through
the throng. Miss Browne can be seen quite
a ways. Her first ball was shot towards
the babies In a style that would make
Jack Pfelster alt up and ask who did It.
The missile cut a nicx In one of tho
frames, hit the club house wall, bounded
In the air and they are still searching for
It. The five martyrs droped on their
knees, but after a conference with two
waiters, returned to face Miss Brown,
somewhat fortified In courage but no
longer saying funny things. There Is no
telling what might have happened If Mr.
Bancker had not made a droll face and
caused Miss Browne to laugh as she threw
the next ball. As a result the force of the
blow was shattered and Mr. Gulou was
but slightly Injured. The third shot went
wild. Later Mrs. A. L. Reed. Mrs. Her
bert Wheeler and Miss Haxel Connell each
hit a man and tied for the nrlio.

nessee was disheartened by her victim's

The Passing; of a Gentlewoman.
When Helen F. Thomaa died the other
day there went from us one of those rare
spirits known as a gentlewoman. This
dominant characteristic enveloped her
whole nature. She was a brosdly educated,
tolerant, cultured, clear minded woman In
the fullest sense of that expressive word.
Possessed of a wonderfully tenacious mem
ory, she was a perfect ready-reference In a
wide field of literature; she had traveled
extensively and charmed her friends by the
vivid word pictures of her experiences In
foreign lands. Her religion meant more to
her than a mere formula, for she was ever
the quiet, helpful friend to no many who
will miss her. Her life was filled to the
brim with the golden record of that char
ity which Is surely twice blessed, because
of the spirit which prompted It. It was a
beautiful life of good deeds, rounded out to
a painless, childlike death. And something
more than the mere passing word should be
said when a woman of such mingled
strength and sweetness passes Into the

Boulevard and Bluff Tract.
OMAHA, Sept. 8.-To the Editor of The
Bee: The Park board has spent a vast
amount of time gratuitously In the Inter
est of beautifying this city and the results
of Its work will grow In the appreciation
of our citizens. In proportion to the growth
of trees planted, together with the Increas
ing congestion of population. The Trans-
mlselsslppl exposition awakened our peo
ple to the fact that the Bluff tract over
looking Cut Off lake, with Its view un
paralleled for grandeur In this city. Is by
Its tocography and Its central location pre
eminently adapted to the wanta of the city
for park purposes. A widespread move
ment to that end failed and building ac
tivity within the Inst two years has en
croached on this tract so as to prevent Its
acquirement for park purposes. In a reso
lution to the city council recommending
the condemnation of a strip along the
brow of this bluff for boulevard purposes,
together with a strip connecting with
Kountxe park on Twentieth street, the
Park board has earned the gratitude of
every progressive citizen In this thickly
settled part of the city. As no part of the
cost of acquiring this strip la collected from
the city at large, the small amount re
quired being distributed among the Inter
ested property owners In the adjacent dis
trict, there should be no opposition to this
Improvement. When it Is completed I pre
dict It will be the most popular scenic
driveway In the city.

Dr. Celestlne de Garmo Gray, the great

the Omaha Horse show, arrived In town
last week with bag and baggage, two Japa

he had been wearing along the board

some good to boost the Interest of the
big Omaha show.
"There Is all of the difference In the
world between an eastern horse show and
a western product," said Dr. Gray to a
bunch of horse lovers at the Omaha club
shortly after his arrival, "and the com
parison Is all In favor of the show of the
west. In their ensemble, the classification
of horses and the rapidity with which the
program is carried out the western cities
are 100 per cent ahead of any in the east.

Square Horse show Is the teacher of all
others in all parts of the globe; its pro

here Is the fashion set for the season.
Then Comes the Weet.
"But take Madison Square out of consid

New York, but now Chicago has taken

horse show Is to a city. Chicago has more

of New York and presenting one of the

Is bound to lead. Why, even Texas gave a
better show last winter than any of tha
summer shows of the east thla year.

"At Narragansett many southern people
made the affair a social success, besides
winning many of the ribbons. Louisville,
Nashville and Lexington were well repre

by Hal McCord won blue ribbons In every
class entered. She waa shown by Alfred
Vanderbllt, the present owner. A number
of western horses took the ribbons In their

Dr. Sherman Williams of Denver also took
prizes with his heavy harness pair, and

to get all of the stables at either place to

The executive committee and the direc
