The princess' wedding cake, made In
London, is six feet higl and weighs mure
than 810 .pounds. It stands upon a huge
silver salver, on which the bride's moth
er's wedding cake was placed. The cake
consists of three glistening sliver white
tiers and Is forty-six Inches in diameter
at the base.
The lowest tier Is divided Into eight pan
els, separated by Corinthian columns and
Is surmounted by Cupids disguised as ppst-
men and messengers. The spaces hetween
the columns are filled with panels of sugar
work representing Spanish vines. The pan
els are festooned with orange blossoms.

flowers were chosen by Princess Ena
There are four panels on the second tier.
In the center of each Is a shield with the
monogram "A. V." surmounted by the
Medallions, sprays of myrtle and tiny
white roses embellish the third tier, on top
of which Is a beautiful group of children in
white Parian marble, bearing aloft a vase
holding a bouquet. . Four long flora! fee
toons reach from the top to the bottom
A gold knife with an Ivory handle two
feet long accompanies the cake and will bo

.Half a dozen palaces and castles await
the king's bride. First of all there Is the
splenald royal palace at Madrid, a great pile
similar to Versailles, built by Philip V
It is a massive building some 500 feet
square and its most striking feature Is a
magnificent marble staircase. Some dis
tance outside of the capital Is the ancient
palace of Escurlal, irreverently known as
the gridiron, on account of Its curHus
shape. It has rooms and corrldora totaling
110 miles In length. At Arranjuea there Is
a brighter and more pleasant dwelling
place, much more often visited by the
Spanish court, while near San Ildnfonso Is
the palace of I-a Granja. Then King Al
fonso has a delightful shooting box at
El Pardo and a beautiful seaside home.
the Mlramar palace, at San Sebastian. At
all these homes the usages and etiquette
of two centuries ago are atlll maintained.
Among the rules which Princess Ena ia
likely to find somewhat irksome Is one re-
auirlnx that the queen shall retire at M
o'clock In summer and half-past I In the
winter. Should the king wish to visit the
queen's apartments after dark he must
wear slippers over his shoes, have a black
mantis thrown over his shoulders -and
shield over his arm. He must also carry a
lantern and a long sword and go unaeconv
panled. Two guards whose service begins at
Jl o'clock pass the night In the antechamber
to the queen's room. The king himself has
nocturnal ' guard. It - consists of alx
gentlemen of the city of Esplnosa. They
wear a curious uniform comprising a blue
Jerkin, short braided trousers, silk stock
ings and a sort of a silver trimmed opera
hat. Each carries a fine Toledo sword.

The nucleus of citizenship of Playground
City waa formed Saturday afternoon, when
about ISO boys and girls signed the consti
tution and received buttons testifying to
their right to participate In the duties and
enjoyments of the municipality from Mayor
George Bugarmnn, a quiet but dignified
youth of tender years. The proceedings
marked the real organisation of the juve
nile city which the public playgrounds
commltte has decided to inaugurate In con
nection with the grounds at Twentieth and
Harney streets. It has been received with
enthusiasm by the youngsters, who have
already stood loyally by the "government"
In several crises.
After boys and girls from all over town
had joined the city Frank Heller, chairman
of the committee, made a speech, impress
ing upon his hearers the necessity for gov
ernment to insure pesee, prosperity, law
and order. He pointed out that the Juvenile
municipality was a serious affair, backed
by the Juvenile court, and In turn by the
itate, the federal government and the
Creator, the highest source ot authority.
He placed the logic of obedience and com
munal effort and patriotism before them
In a way they understood.
The buttons, representing the badee of
citizenship, were supplied by J. L. Brandeiii
& Sons. Practically everything necessary
for the Improvements this year. Including
the shower baths, giant -stride, parallel
bars, etc., have been donated. In June,
when a regular supervisor will be Installed
and the schools have closed, a formal open

officers will participate along with the offl-

A credit to the city and the state, the
People's Store, occupying the large six
story and basement building at Sixteenth
and Farnam streets, has become one of
Omaha's leading stores; their indomitable
push, energy and confidence In the people
of Omaha and vicinity and their firm be

the potent factors that have made this
store what It Is.
This store, which began ls business life
In Omaha in a small way on North Six
teenth street nearly twenty years ago, has
now become one of the largest retail stores
of the city, doing business of a Very Inrge
magnitude. It was due to the clear fore
sight and business sagacity of the owner
of this store that the old Morse building.
which had been vacant for a long time,
became once more a buslnes center. Dur
ing this last January thousands of dollars
were expended by this enterprising firm
in the Improvement of their building to
meet the tremendous and growing business;
an entire new and large shipping room,
extra warehouse space, enlarged display
rooms and many other valuable Improve
ments designed for the convenience and
accommodation of their many patrons and
for the better handling ot business.
During the twenty years this store has
been in Omaha they have furnished the
homes complete of thousands of the most
highly prised citizens of Omaha and Its
surrounding cities. Many of Omaha's citi
zens today can lay the foundations of
their domestic success to the help and as
sistance that the Peoples' store gave them
when as young men the People's Store
started them In house-keeping and assisted
them during times of sickness or loss of
employment by voluntarily carrying their
accounts without payment or without even
asking for one. This policy has been main

early beginning and shall always be con
It was during the year of 18 after many
solicitations from their customers, that the
proprietors decided to open an extensive
line of women's ready-to-wear clothing,
hats and shoes and today this department
has expanded until it is one of the largest
and foremost In the city. Everything In
ready to wear clothing Is shown here In
all the latest styles and qualities at prices
to tempt the most fastidious and ' most
economical. This department occupies the
north half of the second floor. The other
half of the floor Is occupied by the men's,
boy's and youth's clothing, hat and shoe
department. Although Just celebrating its
third anniversary, it has become the mecca
for all those who desire good clothing of a
standard quality at a price within the

THE OLD STAND, 13TH
After suffering nearly a year with melan
cholia. Anna C. Peterson, wife of Chief
Clerk Edwin T. Peterson of the city engi
neer's office, took her lire Saturday morning
by hanging herself in an upstairs room of
the Peterson home at 1730 South Twenty
eighth street. The womun died soon after
being discovered by her slRler, Mrs. Alma
Lundtn of Chicago. Coroner Bialley was
notified, but ufter an investigation decided
an inquest would not be necessary. Mrs.
Peterson was 38 years of age. The funeral
arrangements have not been made.
A few months after the Petersons moved
into their present beautiful home Mrs.
Peterson became Imbued with the Idea the
house was too large for her. She allowed
the thought to work on her mind until It
developed into a form of melancholia on
which medical attention and kindness had
no effect. The wife's condition became so
serious she was placed under the care of
Djt. J. T. Mathews and a month ago her
sister came from Chicago to be the con
stant companion of the afflicted woman.
Thinking a change of residence would
benefit his wife, Mr. Peterson arranged a
few weeks ago to get back the old home
at Twenty-seventh and Woolworth, which
place the Peterson occupied before taking
their new home. The family had arrange!
to move back to the old place next Tues
day morning. Saturday morning Mrs. Pe
terson and her sister were engaged in tak
ing down curtains and other articles pre
paratory to moving. About 10 o'clock the
sister took some curtains into the back
yard to hang them out in the sunshine.
While she waa gone Mrs. Peterson took a
curtain cord and suspended herself from
a high bed poet. Life was almost extinct
when Mrs. Lundin came back to her sister.
Mr. Peterson was summoned from his
desk In the city engineer's office. He was
Inconsolable when he learned of the tragic
event. Dr. Mathews was called, but med
