Thelsst week had little to relieve the
mid-summer dullness and the coming week
offers scarcely anything in the social line.
Nearly all the affairs were given at out
door cluba, and even these were small and

Clanahan's luncheon for Mrs. Floyd Camp

week there were several little affairs for

the middle of the week and there are few
other-visitors In town now, so there will
not ba many glven-ln-honor affairs for a
while.- The departure of the large party
of young people for Lake OkoboJI Wednes
day, leaves a gap In socliil circles and
transfer ths scene of aoclal activities to
that pretty lake. Rumors of gay times
up there are already beginning to come
back to Omaha and those who are left
behind are feeling a trifle lonesome.
Omaha women are slowly though cer
tainly coming to adopt the lead of their
eastern and southern sisters In going
without hats, even on many of the oc
casion whn a hat was formerly consid
ered - tndlapenaible. There ara several
very good reasona for this but the chief
ona is evidently prompted by the dic
tates of common sens and comfort,
and the bonnet seema destined at last
to drop from Its exaggerated importance
to a place consistent with Its real func
tion and port in the toilet of the well
But conceding all that Is due to com
mon sense, a quality alas, that seemingly
too seldom enters into woman'a dress, the
lingerie season . undeniably has had much
to do with this particular step in the
right direction. Elaborateness and dainti
ness have been and are. the chief charac
teristics of the season of 1906. Even the

more dressy street wear, that nothing but
the daintiest of millinery would be con
sistent with It and a hat of texture and
trimming to correspond with them would
be too dressy for Informal wear.

the lingerie variety, haa been eliminated

men to on of the popular young women

subject of much comment and the friends

charms on her first visit here last season,
and early this season waa a guest at a
house party at her beautiful northern
home, and has been most marked In his
attentions during her present visit. The
young woman whose guest she has been
recently, was also a guest at this house
party and thither Journeyed another young
man from Omaha, who holds a responsible
position with one of the large corporations
of this city.

PHIL AARONSOSES AS BRYAN
Oae of Brandels Bayers Caases Mtld
ensatloa ta a Paris
Paris In the height of Its social activity
Is always most Interesting, and the Bran-
dels buyers who are now abroad write that
they have been extremely fortunate In see
ing the French capital during one of its
most brilliant periods. Inasmuch as one
of the chief purposes of the trip was the
study of European style the buyers have
felt much gratified at their success.
William C. McKnlght writes to friends In
Omaha that they went to the races on the
same day that Mr. apd Mra. Nick Long
worth and a party from the American
colony, in Paris were in attendance. On
this day President Falllleres was present.
also representatives of almost every for
eign legation In Paris. It was a great
fashion display as well as a turf event, and
the buyers found that It offered a more
comprehensive study of extreme and ex
elusive French style than any visit to the
shops of Paris designers could present.
In his letter Mr. McKnlght speaks of an
amusing incident that occured In a Paris
cafe. W. J. Bryan had been In Paris and
everyone was anxious to see him, but, of
course, few of th cltlsens had done so,
although all were on the lookout and al
most any American might be under sus
picion until he said absolutely that he
wasn't Mr. Bryan.
"When w went Into a Paris cafe late
laat Tuesday night, we were eyed very
carefully," writes Mr. McKnlght. "To help
along the suspicion Phil Aarons got up In
his chair and proposed a toast to Ne
braska, raising his voice so the people
around could bear him. Two men got up
. . .
lame m. inns j uii iiu ujpjntu
toast to the closer relationship of France
and America. Aarons made a low bow
and drank the toast. Then we got out bo-
fore they called on Aarons for a speech.
Aarons expects to sail for the United
States a week earlier than the rest of us.
We will miss him In the party."
