Our Id formal Spring Opening
Correct and Becoming Millinery
Days, weeks and, yes, months have been spent in the prepara- '
tion of this display and the result is one of the finest, if not the very. '
finest, . collection of handsome and -artistic headgear ever asembled.,
in Omaha. The most exclusive and fashionable models from the
style center of the world -"Paris" are here.
Mme. Oermaine, Mme. Pouyanne and Sousanne Blum have
been called upon to contribute their richest hats. Our millinery
buyer, Miss Alice Ffenner, spent the greater part of six weeks in Paris,
selecting personally this exquisite millinery. And to our designers
she has imparted the knowledge, the style, the make-up of the most
famous models of European milliners. As a result we will show
many' exquisite and exclusive creations from our own work rooms
that will fairly rival the productions of foreign talent. Altogether, it
is a display that will deight the eye of every admirer of the beauti
ful, the artistic and the becoming in women's attire.
' Come, and welcome 1
Our window display is ready. Monday morning, promptly at
8 o'clock, the curtain will be withdrawn, revealing' to the public a
' display of high class' millinery, that has never before been equalled in
the west. . Watch for the opening of this window Monday morning.

second floor and view the display in all its grandeur.

District Attorney Jerome apent many busy
hour today preparing for the state' case
In rebuttal, which will begin Mondny morn
ing with th resumption of the trial of
Harry. K. Thaw before Justice Fitigerald.
Most of the' day the district attorney waa
closctt-d with' nine alienists, six new ex
pert having been summoned Into consulta
tion with Dra. Flint. MacPonnld and
Mabon. Mr. Jerome declined to disclose
the Identity of the new member to hi
fotce of. alienists. Their advent, It waa
aid. waa to assist the district attorney
In preparing hypothetical nuestlona which
ha will put to th expert when they go
upon the witness stand.
It waa currently reported today that Mr.
Jerome had determined to push the . case
to a conclusion and not to ask for a lunacy
commission. All the members of tha dis
trict attorney's start are aangutn that
their ch)ef will be able to throw sufficient
doubt upon Evelyn Neeblt Thaw's story
to at least tend to discredit her In th
eyea of the Jury, and they further declare
that Mf. Jerome hope to have preponder
ance of expert testimony on his side of the
case testimony showing that Thaw acted
as a sane man when he shot an killed
Stanford White, and haa continued to act
aa a sane person ever alnce.
Battle of Bxperts.
Th case, from today's developments,
promise to resolve Itself at least Into a
battle of experts and this means that there
Is absolutely no way of predicting when
the end will come. If Mr.' Jerprrte only
calls three of his nine experts to the stand
It !a mors than likely that ha will call
five It means a aeries of ' Interminable
cross-examination by Delphln M. Delmaa,
the leading counsel' for the defense. Mr.
Delmas thus will be given an opportunity
to match his medical knowledge against
the Very thorough understanding of the
subject, displayed by Mr. Jerome. . Blnce
Mr. Jerome began to lay today ao much
stress upon the-subject of Insanity In pre
paring for rebuttal It scarcely seems posst
blt that' his prediction as to the Urn of
ending the case can come true. The de
fense hits two alienists In reserve, who will
be called in surrebuttal, and that mean
a still longer delay.
The trial on Monday will enter Ita eighth
week and the unexpected must occur In
order to bring about Its conchislon before
Thaw Denies ' Separation Rantnr.
Harry Thaw today gave out a statement
In denial of the reporta' spread abroad to
the effect, that his sister, the Countess cf
Yarmouth, had determined there should bs
a separation of Harry and hla wife aa aoon
aa the trial was over. Thaw declarea he
love hla wife more than ever, and that
hla alster made absolutely no such state
ment aa waa credited to her. Tha itate
I wish to deny aa emphatically as pos
sible the published report that my sister,
the CouBteas of Yarmouth, la desirous of
bringing about a separation of my wife
and myself at the conclusion of the ti'lftl.
Perfect harmony exists between my wlfu,
my sister and myself,' aa Indeed between
all the members ef my family. Huoh a
thing aa a separation has never been and
never wtll be oonsldered by me or .'any
o fmy relatives.
The Countess of Yarmouth Is very
friendly with Mre. H. . K. Thaw and ItolJa
ber Jn the highest esteem. -
As for myself, my love for my wife la
greater than it ever waa before. If that
Is possible. I hope that this denial front
me wtll forever set at rest the absurd
story of a possible estrangement.
It la particularly regrettable to Mrs.
Thaw and myself that such a story should
have emanated from the source It did.
Jury Will Take Ita Choice. ,
Much interest attaches to the- form of
the hypothetical question, wh.lch th dis
trict attorney will put before hla exports.
Mr. Delmas aeemed to Include every fact
connected with th case In hla hypotheti
cal question, and. the defenae'a allenle'a
gave it aa their opinion that Thaw not
only was' Insane- when he killed White,
but for two month thereafter.'
The attentats (or the state can take these
same facta and reach a diametrical oppo
site opinion. The jury will have to taka
Its choice, and place Its' own estimate on
tho value of expert testimony.
The staff of county detectives attached
to Mr. Jerome's office hat been sent out
for every person mentioned by Evelyn
Nesblt Thaw In her testimony and efforte
will be made to round them all up high
and low to secure every bit of outstanding
evidence, that may bear in any measure
upon the rebuttal of Thaw's wlfe'a story.
It Is hardly likely that any of these per
sons will be callnd on to testify, for It is
doubtful If they can be called under the
rule of evidence, but Information they
can give to the district attorney, h thinks,
will be a valuable asset to tha peoples'

WASHINGTON, March . Nlcaragnan
sympathiser are Indignant nt the chsrges
mado against President Belaya by Hon
duraa and maintain that the movement of
Honduras against Nicaragua and tha re
ported alliance between Honduras and
other Central American republics was
planned by President Bonllla of Honduras
for the sole purpose of averting aerlous
revolutionary , movement in the latter
A prominent supporter of President Z
laya, and one authorised to speak for him,
said today that public sympathy cannot
but be with the Nlcaraguan chief executive
If all the facta about the present affair are
known. He also expressed surprise and
disbelief at ths reported alilnnce of the
four other Central American governments
agslnst Nicaragua and said It Is especially
difficult to understand why Costa Rica
should pertlctpst In any movement against
Zelaya. In answer to' the charge that
President Zelaya refused to accept the de
cision of the boundary dispute between
Honduras and Nicaragua, handed down by
the king of Bpaln late In 1908, the Nlca
raguanr Insist that there la no foundation
for such a charge because the result of
this arbitration has not even been sub
mitted to the decision of the Nlcaraguan
Trouble with Salvador.
The assistance Balvador Is reported to be
giving Honduras In the present trouble may
be ascribed to the fact that the two coun
tries are supposed to be allies whose friend
ship was strengthened by the assistance
Honduras gave to Salvador last year when
the latter , republic became entangled In a
war with Guatemala. Nicaragua and
Guatemala have hot been on especially
friendly terms for some time because of
the failure to negotiate reciprocity treaties
and the refusal of Nicaragua to take part
In the negotiation of the San Jose treaty
growing out of . the conference ,on the
t'nlted State gunboat Marblehead tor the
settlement of the war In which Guatemala,
Honduras and Salvador engaged last year.
, Supporters of President Zelaya are at a
lose to explain the reported hostility of
Costa Rica to Nicaragua. It has been
known for some time thst the present ad
ministration of Costa Rica waa not friendly
to President Zelaya and hla administration,
but the relations between the two natlona
have been auch that an open breach be
tween them has never been thought of by
After the recent presidential election In
Costa Rica some of the defeated candidates
