Last week would have txen practically
dead fiod It- not been for it or two visit
ors, whose presence livened things up a
bit. . Mr?. Stevens, tho charming guest of
Mrs. Unwind Taldrlge, was the guest of
honor at some affair almost every 'day, and
Mlas t'pdike of Chicago, who Is vlaltlng
Mlsa Helen Rlhhel. has been entertained
grt deal by the member of the
younger net. while Miss Etta Schneider of
Fremont baa also been the recipient of
much attention nnd Mr. William Hrad
bury, who Is visiting at the Congdon resi
dence, has been the hono'Vcd guest at many
dinners and small gntlierlt'gs. The coming
week has several C'ountty club luncheons
in prospect and many hifm m,il Mffalrs will
probably be given tor Miss l.'pdike, who
will be the guest of J!r. Edward Updike
thla week. Outside of these there Is noth
ing for the future.
The widows and widowers, all three va
rieties the real ones, the grass ones and
the -summer ones, are occasioning consid
erable, amusement and goHSlp at the Field
club Just at present. There are many of
each kind Included In the membership and
they are nearly always present in full
force. Of late the number has been par
ticularly noticeable.' There are three wid
ows of the second variety who are nearly
always together, nnd the attention they re
ceive from the summer widowers would
rausthe wives of these gentlemen to take
the next train for home If they knew about
It. Then there Is another charming widow,
who Joined the ranks last spring, who Is
very popular among the younger men and
who 1s the envy of many of the girls. The
colony of grass widows Is noon to be Joined
by another charmer. Judging from the
newspapers of the last week. The grass
widowers are Just as numerous, but the'r
attentions are bestowed on the young
women Instead of the women of their own
age. One of the above, who achieved con
siderable newspaper notoriety Is nearly al
ways present at the dances and entertains
quite frequently at dinner, but he has not
succeeded very well with the fair ones of
the Field club. If appearances can be Judged
by. His attentions tn a fair widow of North
Omaha have been the cause of considerable
comment and onlookers are wondering what
the outcome will be.
The last week has been a very quiet
ono at the Field club. The attendance
at both the dinner and dance Wednesday
iyoiiirn rirre reason lor
this was the large number of people out
of town and another was the restrictions
put upon tho members In regard to In
viting guests. There Is no more popular
place In Omaha than the Field club, and
Invitations there are eagerly sought. Tho
directors have been very Inent In the
matter, until the privilege of bringing
guests was abused, and the members al
most crowded out. The membership Is
ao large, that were the attendance lim
ited strictly to members, the accommoda
tions would often be taxed. The rules
of the club permit residents of Omiha
to be Invited only once In three months,
and cards of Invitation must be obtained
for them from the secretary, and they
must also be registered at the club. The
members have paid little attention to
thla rule, however, and consequently

was rut to this, however, last week, by
the Issuing of rards, railing; attention
to the rules, and requiring members tq
present their cards at the gate. The re

attendance, and the absence of many, who

WOMAN II CLUB JkXO CHARITY.
Not a little criticism has been offered
of late of Mrs. Decker's assertion that
the General Federation of Women's Clubs
Is not for reformers, but rather for
women who need to get out, of themselves.
What Mrs. Decker really said was that'
she believed the woman's club Is for all
kinds of women, working women, women
who are interested in philanthropy, moth
ers who want to learn how to make better
homes; but most of all, for women who
need to get out of themselves. There
comes a time when a woman's children
have grown grown out of her arms and
gone Into tho world, or, perhaps, have
passed on Into another world, tfhe has
tired of society. She can not pass the
time with needlework and sad memories
for company. It Is at such a time that
the woman's club saves her.
While It Is true that the club Is not
for reformers. It is equally true that the
General Federation Is one of the greatest
reform agencies of the day and this "get
ting women out of themselves," rousing
them to something beyond their own im
mediate Interests, is the secret of Its mar
velous accomplishment. The federation
has been accused of Inconsistency because
It did not take up and endorse woman
suffrage at the St. Paul biennial, but
such criticism could scarcely 'come from
women who are thoroughly familiar with
this great organization of nearly 800,000
women combining a variety of interests
Including everything to which woman Is
giving her attention. Conceding that
woman suffrage, more than any other re
form. Is engaging the Investigation of
women today, it should also be remem
bered that there Is more prejudice against
the enfranchisement of women than
against any other digression women have
made or attempted to make from the nar
row groove prescribed for them back In
the days when they were considered by
men as little more than chattels and the
experienced woman will think, twice' be
fore asking the General Federation. tj en
cumber Itself with a prejudice such as
ie endorsement of thle reform would
entail, particularly as Jtfere Is in existence
one great thg association organized
solely fojv the advancement of the polit-
eresta of women.
fact that the federation embraces
music, art and literature has protected it
from much that It would have had to
meet considering Its activity along other
and more radical lines and with all that
the clubs have to do in the Interest of
women and children. It would seem the
politic thing for them to avoid radical
methods until such time as they can bet
ter afford to declare themselves for the
principles that the majority of them now
The long and exasperating light of the
Chicago teachers for their withheld sal

Tou could have made a tidy sum of
money this summer if you had known
what every dry goods merchant in. America,
knows today. A retail firm In Omaha saw
Its chance and had enough foresight to
weigh the conditions Judicially. Now the
results of the effort have paid for the
trouble a dosen times over.
I-nng silk gloves were at a greater pre
mium this summer than any one article
of merchandise for a dcraJe. Early this
spring came evidences of an overwhelming
denvind. The call for long kid gloves began
to subside when the shirt waist girl ap
peared. The 1WS shirt waists were elbow
length. Ixing silk or fabric gloves brcamo
a necesolty, btcause the summer girl wanted
something that would daintily cover her
forearms and turn up into a neat cuff at
the elbow. From New York to the Pad tic
coast there was a clamor for this article.
Kid gloves, even if they could be secured,
would not fill the bill. Light fabric gloves
In black, white or any color were demanded
over a thousand retail counters.

the promise of the clerks, but the promise
became a procrastination more and more
deferred. The market was barren of silk
glove s. I
Order Cannot D Filled.
For weeks orders were filled by manufac
turers in thirds or quarters of tho desired
amounts, If they were filled at all. New
York had no gloves. Paris had none. The
manufacturers could not get the silk fabric
and they had to watch their chances of a
rich harvest fade away. "Not a pair of
elbow length gloves on Broadway," was
the terse answer from New York sources
of supply to entreaties from all over the
states. Gloves In lisle, glove tops or mitts
were seized as makeshifts wherever they
were found, but the supply seemed to whet
the appetite rather than appease It. Price
ceased to be a chief consideration. Custom
ers did not question cost, but swarmed on
every pair of gloves to be found.
Late In the spring a member of an Omaha
Arm went abroad for a pleasure trip. He
conceived the idea of buying gloves where
ever they could be foUnd. Since there were
pone to be had at the manufacturers, the
Jobbers or the wholesalers, he determined
to buy out the retailers. When he reached
Europe he haunted the big shops of Paris,
London and Vienna till he secured every
pair 4he shrewd merchants would sell htm.
These were shipped to America and dis
posed of at wholesale to the clamoring
dealers at prices In appreciable advance
of the normal retail figure. He got his
price without an effort.
Pnta Party of Bayers to Work.
A few weeks later the house, of which
this merchant was a partner, sent abroad
a party of five buyers; with instructions to
go over the European retail field. In addi
tion to their other buying trips, and ship to
America every pair of long silk gloves to
be found for sale In the trade centers of
thj continent. The result was an importa
tion that staggered the customs house offi
cers and made trie Jobbers believe that- a
source of supply aa generous and as mys
terious as "Scotty's" mine had been un
earthed. The gloves were Jobbed at an
This, was a piece of foresight that might
have been exhibited by any larger Im
porter or wholesaler, but It remained for
an Omaha house first to cover the field
and when the method became known, this
profitable source of supply was as barren
as a desert.
That's the way you could have made
money thla summer.
